What would a website sound like? We’re not talking about the choice of music for ambience. Instead, we’re talking about the actual sound that the website would make…if it had a musical voice, that is.
CODEORGAN is a very 1980’s style website that analyses the “body” content of a given site and translates it into song. It first analyses the websites’ qualities, stripping through all codes not found in the A to G scale…qualifies the most frequently used ‘note’…determines which type of synth to use depending on the complexity of the site…chooses a drum loop depending on the ratio of formulas, aaaand a few other things to whip up unique song for your website of choice. Check out the “About” for a more detailed description. Check out the website to ‘synthefy’ like its 1985.
Here is a followup to a previous post on Mark Wojda and the peak into the underground rollerblading world. The video posted below is a trailer for an upcoming documentary on top rollerbladers from the East Coast U.S.A & the world. The trailer is sure to grab your sentiments!
Quel jour sommes-nous
Nous sommes tous les jours
Nous sommes toute la vie
Nous nous aimons et nous vivons
Nous vivons et nous nous aimons
Et nous ne savons pas ce que c’est que la vie
Et nous ne savons pas ce que c’est que le jour
Et nous ne savons pas ce que c’est que l’amour
For the interest of full disclosure, the following isn’t about the current state of rollerblading’s industry or the lack of media exposure…It’s simply about what rollerblading has given me and the positive culture and community behind it…Not to mention how badass it’s become…
There is some…contention…surrounding whether contractions are appropriate to use in haiku. To that I can do nothing but attest to the bizarre nature in which this Biblical piece came about – being what you might call the opposite of religious – and so I find myself loathe to change anything.
Sodom (our Lot in life)
“don’t look back,” he says
strong hand taking mine, we run
but i have to know
It’s probably garbage. When I woke up this morning, for whatever reason, I was thinking about curiosity – so strong as to defy logic – and the haiku poured forth in the ensuing seconds before I fully had time to really grasp what was happening.
