I got a new job and I'm moving to San Francisco in 2 months. (No, it's not with Google.)

You should be there.
Hot tunes! Great art! (I'm assuming the art is great; I haven't actually seen it yet.)

It occurred to me that none of my friends in Norfolk are on Livejournal, so posting this here is kind of pointless. Og qell.

Pondular!
To whom it may concern:

Here are 30 free, original, brand-spankin-new audio toys:

including my own humble contribution, Pondular (about halfway down the page).

(Note: even if you don't know what a "VST" is, you can probably still play with Lunchbox or Collide-and-Play, both of which are super fun.)

A mix
Some techier stuff, then later some dancier stuff.

A couple mistakes, but no train wrecks.

How to pick the winner of the World Cup.
Is the Cup hosted in Europe? Bet on the home team.

Is the Cup hosted outside of Europe? Bet on Brazil.

That correctly picks the winner nearly half the time-- 8 out of the last 17 Cups!

A European side has never won the Cup outside of Europe. Only one non-European team has won the Cup in Europe (and they had Pele!)

Remember how 2002 was so exciting and full of surprise teams? Many pundits seem relieved that the traditional powers are back on top; the strong performances from Korea and the USA were clearly flukes.

.. or maybe the European teams were not quite as strong on a neutral field.

In the last 4 Cups in Europe (France 98, Italy 90, Spain 82, Germany 74) European sides have posted a 61-20-30 record, with 208 goals for and 90 goals against (1.87 - 0.81 per game).

In the last 4 Cups outside of Europe (Korea/Japan 02, USA 94, Mexico 86, Argentina 78) European sides have posted a 49-44-29 record, with 160 goals for and 147 goals against (1.31-1.20 per game).

Mopis in CM98
Mopis got a nice review in the latest issue (nr 98) of Computer Music, as part of a round up of something like "Top Six Plugins You Might Have Missed." I don't think it is available in most US bookstores/newstands yet, but a UK user was kind enough to pass it along.

Choice quote: "Verdict: It may look simple, but there's more to Mopis than meets the eye. At this price, it's got to be worth considering. Rating: 8 [out of 10]"

Update wait, I forgot the choicest quotes:

"...thick, punchy bass patches of the sort you'd expect to hear from an ARP or Moog clone."
"...some outlandish sounds that'd sound right at home on a Skinny Puppy record..."

P.S. If you are my friend, and you actually have use for such a thing, perhaps I can score you a modest discount. Send me an e-mail.

20 hours until Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
I hope you're writhing with jealousy right about now. If not, it would suffice for you to pretend to be writhing with jealousy for my benefit.

(and I thought about my friend Michel, how they rolled him in linoleum and they popped him in the neck -- bloody halo like a think-bubble circling his head. and I bellowed at the firmaments: "looks like the rains are here to stay!" and the rain pissed down upon me and washed me all away)

Good sir, I'll have three cups, hot as hellfire, black as your soul.

Ventera mailed me a cookie (at least I think it's a cookie). It's shaped like a dog biscuit, and it says "Ventera" on it. Apparently that's the consolation prize.

A cookie. WTF?

Have a listen: it's just like real surf music, only not as .. surfy.
