I am borderline obsessive about the new Twin Peaks series, episode 8 was full on mental. Glad Lynch has (obviously) been given free reign on this. The sound design and music placement is lovely throughout, even though the inclusion of NIN was a bit weird.

I dunno.. it's the first time The Nine Inch Nails has ever made any sense to me.

I have not kept up with re-Peaks at all (for no reason other than apathy/not getting fancy cable channels in my bedroom. I am a TP/Lynch fan, don't get me wrong), but NIN in the show doesn't seem strange to me at all. Lynch has always had an apparent affinity for "industrial" textures/aesthetics and peculiar, moody alternative music (think Crazy Clown Time).

I used to really like NIN in the late 90's-early 00's, back when my eldest sister dubbed me a copy of one or two of their albums. The production was awesome, for one thing. T-Rez did some really cool production work, even when he was just blatantly aping Foetus or Skinny Puppy. Along with a slew of really nice hooks, his texturally dense, layered and just generally quirky production is a big part of what keeps me occasionally coming back to Marilyn Manson's debut all these years after growing out of the cringe-inducing teen angst lyrics. I ought to check out those early NIN albums again. I haven't listened to any of them since the early 2000's, since I lost the tape my sister made for me.

The music itself seemed to fit well, especially if you listen to the lyrics. it was just the way they got introduced by an MC as "the nine inch nails" and it looked like Reznor was miming. No other band in the series got an introduction so far, and as far as I could tell nobody else was miming.

Shelley Duvall. I learned yesterday that a friend of mine from high school who moved to Colorado died. Her last name was Duvall, which somehow got me thinking about the surname, and then about Shelley. I'm a bit sad to find out Shelley Duvall is completely insane now. It's also weird to know my old school friend died. She was even younger than me. I think she was a sophomore when I was a senior. I've felt bad sometimes that we lost touch.

CED video format/tracking down a CED player. Speaking of which, I am watching a lot of Fairie Tale Classics CED's, feat. Shelley Duvall. They've been sitting on eBay for a long time, but I can't justify buying them without being able to watch them.

The Todd Rundgren-Mark David Chapman-John Lennon triangle. I bought a TR tape a while back, and here I am.

80's-90's golden age anime/manga. I'm not a weeb, honest. I've been reading up on a lot of "cult" OVA's and horror manga I either haven't seen/read, or haven't seen/read in years, and snapping up cheap copies of whatever phantasmagorical, ultraviolent and disturbing sci-fi/horror/fantasy classics I can find. I've yet to see Midori (I wonder, sometimes, how many "witchy girls" and post-rock numales with Etsy-purchased Suehiro Maruo and Junji Ito print t-shirts have seen it themselves). But I finally accepted that I'm never going to track down the French PAL DVD, let alone an NTSC version (maybe someday one will come out), and snatched it off of a movie tracker. I hope to watch it on my next day off.

Rewatched "Legend of the Overfiend" series & "Tetsuo" recently looking for audio samples
need going through old boxes filled with original Manga VHS tapes and obscure japanese movies
for more sound source sample hunting
have like 1000 VHS tapes all packed in boxes
changed my avatar here for my custom "Jin Roh" Wolf Brigade one made while ago
on the verge of rebuilding my old mac 8100 av ProTools system today
for using in studio with samplers
have digidesign nubus Sample Cell sitting in the original box for that machine
built drum station recording rack next to my kit
looking like have enough extra space for the old power mac machine also
grabbed new external SCSI cd writer for using with that machine
really need installing floppy drive in main desktop
so eye can make new copies of Waveboy FX disks for ASR10r
hate pulling that machine out of where it's wedged
see if any of that actually gets done today
in spring cleaning mode currently after long hard winter
note to self: running low on extra power strips!

I plan to see Urotsukidoji eventually, though I have a lot of other OVA's and other things to watch/re-watch first. I finally had the opportunity to watch Midori earlier in the week. I want to watch it again soon. It's everything I look for in spiritually degrading degenerate filth, yet it also serves as a poignant reminder of the necessity of kindness.

I've been wasted for much of the past three days. Chronic brown bottle flu. I re-watched WataMote all the way through for the first time in some years over the last two days, and it hit me hard. I'm almost 30 and it still resonates with me to an embarrassing degree. I probably cried every time the ending theme played:


Current fleeting interests involve coming up with ways to incorporate WataMote samples into recordings/live performances without being too on-the-nose and seeming like a massive and pitiful dork in the process. Running the ending theme through a granular synthesis program creates some beautiful noise.

pulled out the mac 7100 with 300mhz g3 upgrade & protools 442 rack/samplecell II
making sure it's not Kaput
everything is running as smooth as ever on that machine
obsessively looking for CDs with MAX/MSP for OS8.6
as if don't have enough things for experimenting with now
need archiving some tracks from that machine
that ended up on vinyl from crappy version cassette flyoff mixes
then contact some old fuckhead friend in Berlin
for sending him "lost original masters"
TASCAM DA30 self destructed on that project
that's pretty "fleeting" motivation
would almost rather record new noise record on that ancient MAC :P

Oh yeah I used Alchemy and I think that SE30 also had Turbosound on it which I would totally use. Apparently parts of Turbosound have been made into VST's but are still mac only?
