Working on more ways to turn perfectly good audio into messy noise.

Finally soldered together something that makes sound! Pretty good noise from this super simple circuit based on a hex schmidt trigger IC.

one Dickens left

I read Martin Chuzzlewit this summer, so now I have but one Dickens novel left to read!
And it's supposed to be a good one! (MC was not so great.)

  • Dombey and Son (1.95)
  • David Copperfield (1.91)
  • Bleak House (1.91)
  • Nicholas Nickleby (1.86)
  • Martin Chuzzlewit (1.85)
  • Little Dorrit (1.85)
  • Our Mutual Friend (1.83)
  • Pickwick Papers (1.72)
  • Barnaby Rudge (1.41)
  • The Old Curiosity Shop (1.19)
  • Great Expectations (1.01)
  • Oliver Twist (0.91)
  • A Tale of Two Cities (0.78)
  • Hard Times (0.58)

The numbers are proportional to the length of the book (they should be
approximately the number of characters in the novel, in millions).

Frames from an MRA on my brain, checking out blood vessels in my right ear (everything is fine).

Now with a soundtrack. Fullscreen it, if you can.

A long pose figure drawing I'm working on in Terry Furchgott's Figure Drawing in Interiors class at Gage Academy.

It meets only once a week. These images are one week apart. We have a couple more sessions.
