Most of my followers are dead accounts from the 2016 and 2018 migrations btw. In practice I have like 35 actual followers

My avatar has "just said something fakedeep about post-metal" energy. This is just how it looks when I draw a furry and I have made peace with it

Patiently quarantining this bad boy for a week before I start using it 🤘🐺💀

The Craftsynth 2... is the only piece of audio gear that ever ended up being smaller in person than I expected

Fool: When Twitter and Furaffinity finally destroy themselves, many of their users will move to Mastodon

Wise Man: When Twitter and Furaffinity finally destroy themselves, their users will come together across cultures and creeds to build a single replacement website from scratch, called, "GrunkYapperz". It will be built on a new platform called "PHP-VR" and completely controlled by a single mysterious admin known only as "SlurpyGryphon"

it's super fucking cursed that you can get a phd in economics and never get within the zip code of marx

I can’t wait for this place to be briefly mentioned in an adam curtis documentary in like ten years time

(Damn though, the word "snout" has been ruined, lmao)

Realizing that Blastoise was my first case of "snout envy"... hmm

Mastodon is what happens when everyone claims to read theory but don't read anything except each other's posts

OK, I ended up doing a shitton of circuit-simulation today, and now I am reasonably confident that these ultra-oldschool-style analog drums, and their modern-but-thrifty control interface, will indeed probably mostly work.

Entire drum machine will have only 3 opamps in the signal-path

Mmm... ultra-oldschool-style lofi analog drum machine with strong gay furry design themes...

Show thread

Could try playing "components golf" again, now that I actually know enough for it not to be a farce

Show thread

Hmmm I think my main obstacle to making progress on this kind of idea is that I simply, don't want to spend a bunch of money on miscellaneous prototyping components, lmao

Show thread

Pretty sure I could make a neat little analog drum machine with just like... The noise-circuit from the Noise Toaster, the damping-oscillators and VCAs from the DR-55, the filter circuit from the Weird Sound Generator, and some variation of the Bazz Fuss distortion circuit. And then some sort of attack-release dealy

Show thread

What if we 😉 made a transistor-capacitor-resistor feedback loop in the rhythm circuit 😳 with no opamps

Show thread

Reading some analyses of the Boss DR-55 drum-machine circuit again and feeling my brain fall out of my ears... "Damping oscillators" are a seductive concept tho

Not endorsing Orbitz btw. I was just really bad at knowing what I'd actually enjoy when I was a teen

Show thread

People will never again know the satisfaction of picking up an Orbitz in the Belltower Mall bodega... RIP to that place, it was a dumpy leaky pyramid-shaped wonder of hippie architecture

Show thread

Extremely fucked up to watch people's vacation vlogs from the ski resort where I lived as a kid. The buildings that've been knocked down or overhauled are almost as surprising as the buildings that've stayed the same... And the new buildings they've put up since I moved away have an extremely "Disney" vibe that I don't like at all
