@Azure your turn? :)

What's cooler than someone playing with giant arcs of million-volt potential electricity as if they're best friends?

The above.. but in slow-motion: "THE SUPER SLOW SHOW S1 • E2 Part 4: Tesla Coil"

"Isqa - Tree Eater", 8m:17s

Someone in the comments to Andrew Huang's video suggested writing a piano piece with concepts in mind, and, apparently, it exists. I'm not sure if it's glitch-y enough for @Azure 's tastes, but it *is* a fun subversion of expectations.

It started as an odd, but calm piano piece.. but it quickly ªevolved into aló matters of glitcÃ�Åœy noÕses��

"5 steps to make awesome GLITCH BEATS" by Andrew Huang, 8m:56s

Stumbled across this in my YouTube subscriptions yesterday, was insightful and fun, especially for . I ought to play with randomness for music in the future, right now I'm just using it with my music lights...

"First patch with Erica Synths Pico System" from Andrew Huang's second channel,
⚠️​ Caution: Contains unapologetically loud noise!

A 6 minute song mostly based on random generation to modulate every aspect of sounds (pitch, placement, etc), forming an atonal soundscape of sharp, impersonal harshness, offering moments ranging from relative calm to, um, ear-invigorating (e.g. 3m:50s).

In other words, I think @Azure would really like this :)

@rey I'm not sure if this was deliberate, but I discovered tiny-fox mode on today, and I'm rather amused =^.^=

@Tusky Hey, seems you got cameo'd in a French article on Android privacy and tracking!

Unfortunately, I don't know French, and despite showing it as an application that had been tested, there's no positive remarks on Tusky, or remarks about it at all. But still, kinda neat to see that familiar logo in the top-right :)

Glitch music. A strange genre. The only winning move is not to listen. How about a nice collaboration of human and AI instead?

♪ "Rainbowgram" (explanation first, skip to 5m:00s for song/visualization)


Drum samples and noises through NSynth ( ), arranged by a human.

@Azure , you've remarked on glitch music not being glitch-y enough. This might a bit closer to your taste?

@Yarideki Given your remarks on macrofauna, I think you might like some of the artwork here...

Lots of neat, giant creature art by Ariduka, who unfortunately recently deactivated their deviantArt.

Before then, I had even edited one of their drawings to try to match @Azure 's colors:

"Dangerous Christmas Laser Show Upgrade - 1000x Stronger" by styropyro. 5mW to 5 W laser upgrade. Goodness.

Hey @Azure , no matter how cool it looks, remember to not permanently blind your neighbors with your Christmas decorations :)

@kellerfuchs @Azure Found it via TheOdd1sOut video on "Movies I Thought Were Weird".. this song's not referenced, but, uh, I was curious about the movie given other things mentioned. (talks about movie at 5m53s)

@Azure @kellerfuchs "…Don't wish you could be…" fox theme? :)

Source: Charlotte's Web 2: Wilber's Great Adventure. I had to trim the lyrics to fit within 500 characters.

Full lyrics:


@kellerfuchs @Azure @a[type=fox]

"…It's great to be to an intellectual
You there really are so few

And all their plans are ineffectual
Against my 108 I.Q.

I'm sure that you'll agree
That all hens and geese
And roosters and hawks
Are dumb as an ox
Compared to this truly exceptional fox

Who's clever, who's quick
Who thinks out of the box
Like me

The grace, the charm, the looks
The genius and wit
I've got to admit, Oh, Golly Gee

It's Good to Be Me…"

These fickle biological specimens are a significant source of complexity in our system. They are a soup of needs and emotions which, when combined with others of their kind, communicate through a low fidelity, highly lossy communication protocol called ‘language’.
