Last night I got my computer to sing me to sleep... I've been messing around with synth stuff and random signal generators. Here's a few minutes (actually loopable) of some of the things the computer came up with (with my guidance). I just put the sound on low and went to bed. Really nice IMO.

you ever want to use an emoji to express something, but then when you hover over it the verbal description doesn't match what you want to use it for?

so then you have an internal debate about whether the meaning of an emoji is in your interpretation of its appearance, or whether the meaning is defined by the intention of the creator of the emoji as expressed by the way the creator named it?

then you remember wittgenstein and death of the author something something but that doesn't help? then you forget what you were going to post. anyway good morning
