The Flywheel / 21 March 2005

What do you do on the weekends? Please post your response in comments SIKE!! there are none here but anyway I wonder about that, what people do on the weekends, when they’re in that in-between phase where they don’t need to go out and find someone to have sex with them but they also don’t have a lawn to maintain.

Because what I do is sit in the snow on the back porch and fire up the Flywheel and punch in co-ords and see what noises come out. This is for hours. I think of these times as rehearsals for the upcoming Orifex LP, which may or may not ever actually exist, but I like thinking about it, and making vague plans for it to be an actual beginning-middle-end kind of album. But until then I just generate noises and pretend they’re rough demos that someone will one day illegally issue in a compilation called Ha Ha Learning. Here is one from yesterday:


(For a while I toyed with the fancier-pants’d music generators and they were good for assembling beats that make the kids shake their stank, but I want to get back to sad chittering drones and nothing beats the Flywheel when it comes to that.)

A novel called Chokeville and a beverage-review site called The Knowledge For Thirst.

A great deal of typing is collected in the Archive.

Articles and whatnot for other sites, including The Morning News, Wired, and McSweeney's, can be found in External.

I've been involved in a number of Epiphany Sink pictures.

I record music under the name Orifex.
