New module!

Just fitted an AJH Synth Fixed Filter Bank 914, based on the classic Moog one.

Here it is with some noise going through it:

"No one is forced to use Facebook" 

I hear that often, but I know of many people who had to create accounts and start to use Facebook for things like classes, community participation, and family communication. It's assumed you have it, and we don't make affordances for those who don't.

Perhaps we're not forced with violence or laws, but we are strongly coercing each other to use it. I never created an account for various reasons, and I have lost touch with people as a result.

Further update, I've now moved the modules around, and replaced most of the screws with Befaco Knurlies:

You don't have to leave the house to visit a museum.
Enjoy the Winamp Skin Museum:

On this day in 1973, socialist Chilean President Salvador Allende was killed in a military coup that was supported by the United States who then helped install dictator Augusto Pinochet who went on to disappear, torture, and kill tens of thousands.

Never forget!

update - I've added some space for expansion :)

Going to move the bottom row of the top case in to the base case for better ergonomics. Got an exciting new module on the way that will fit in the space that opens up too.

I was going to do the move last night but I was too tired after work and didn't want to accidentally plug any modules in the wrong way round.

Well this is refreshing..don't think I've ever been to a site that recommends using an adblocker. Awesome! Way to be botwiki.org!

Waiting patiently for conservatives to condemn gender reveal parties, which have killed several people and caused hundreds of *b*illions of dollars in property damage, at the same level they condemn antifa and anti-cop protests, which they claim to be condemning over a few hundred thousand dollars in property damage.

Hurray! My ISP seems to have dropped routing to a sizeable chunk of the internet. Fun times :S

Sad to hear Simeon Coxe has died. A pioneer of electronic music, the stuff he did as Silver Apples was way ahead of its time, check out "Oscillations": youtube.com/watch?v=yDk-PGRMMw

This is from 1968?!

Had the fortune of seeing Simeon live a couple of times, once at All Tomorrow's Parties and once at Picturehouse Social in Sheffield, both great shows.

RIP

Current status

Not taken a picture for a while, I've added maybe a couple of modules since the last time. The case is getting pretty full now, just a few HP left here and there.

Gone and done another live stream with the

Ambient/Drone/Noise/Experimental stuff. And for once my laptop didn't randomly crash after 30/40 minutes.

The fact that Doc from back to the future pronounces it "Jiggawatts" suggests he's only ever read it, and that he's entirely self-taught

Did another live stream the other day. Lasted 40 minutes before my laptop crashed, I think I know what caused it so hopefully the next one will be longer.

Here it is anyway with some going on:
