Splicemagic

Splice Music is a website in which anyone can remix on-line, using sound samples on the site, without the need for any equipment or software. It's all provided. This week they have a contest called "Solar You", in which one does a remix featuring ethereal sounds from a piece by thaumata called "Solar You". This kind of ethereal ambient/chill thing (with music-box-like belltones) is right up my alley, so I uploaded some of my own bells and music boxes into the Splice system, and used the Splice sequencer to create my own new remix, called The Weekend Before We Broke UpCollapse )

A virtual NCAA Tournament Contest

We do not do office pools at my office, and I am not the type to seek out illegal book-making operations. But I like prognostication as well as the next person.

This year, I once again entered that contest which is a balm for people with my particular maladies. It's at a newspaper sports website from beautiful Lawrence, Kansas, called KUSports. There they have an NCAA tournament contest, complete with an easy-to-register, easy-to-complete fillable bracket contest.

I am not a profound predictor, but now my selections are of record there. I mention this in case any of you, on this ultimate eve of destruction, feel similarly inclined.
