Pinned toot

I'm a web developer by trade. I tinker with and other electronics. I've been known to draw, paint, sew, cook, bake and take photographs. I'm currently trying to understand how modular synths work.

I just had a very vivid dream where I was smoking. I could feel the warm smoke entering my lungs and soothing my nerves. Also the anxiety, “I guess I’m hooked again” I thought in my dream.

I haven’t had a cigarette in 13 years.

I have next week off from 𝔻𝕒𝕪 𝕛𝕠𝕓. As much as I enjoy the challenges and problem solving there, I’m looking forward to a week focusing away from capitalism and towards family, creativity and play.

The best part of making minestrone soup is the leftover wine. 🍷

Idea: a wiki system where every noun is auto linked to its own page. Maybe that’s already a thing?

What it’s like scrolling through Mastodon as a dog person.

Today was the first day I ever sent a specific musical note into my synth. I live coded it in via Orca 🙂
I have a lot to learn here, but hearing it work is pretty satisfying.

It took me weeks to figure out that the USB cord that came with my keyboard was just broken. I thought I was stuck w/ Bluetooth only and then yesterday it occurred to me to try another cable.

Saw two coyotes on our evening walk. They stopped and stared at us and our coyote-looking dog. Then they peacefully trotted into the woods. :maru:

Just had a continuation of a previous dream where I enter a sprawling multi room house shared with other people. We care for a bear that lives in the house as well. The bear finds me and gives me a look, which I know means they are hungry. The other people have been giving the bear biscuits only. I find a bag of bear kibble and fill a bowl for the grateful bear.

I'm looking for a livecoder who would be part of an under-represented demographic, for a well paying orca gig. If you know anyone who would be a good candidate? Hit me up :)


Hello! I have been making music for most of my life, and I'm deeply curious about the language of music (especially how it manages to make us feel).

Lately, I have given a lot of time to learning about computers and electronics. I started with a focus on DSP in embedded contexts, but I'm quickly growing a more wholistic appreciation of programming.

I'm excited to tune in to this community and to have a channel for projects, sounds, and half baked ideas. Thanks for having me!

What is this Gemini thing anyway, and why am I excited about it?
