i have been unable to work because i have been thinking about things like this video (“The Philosophy of Ghost in the Shell [a thingy by Matt Page]”)
Leonora Carrington 1917 - 2011
She died Wednesday, aged 94, in Mexico. I took these images in 2008, my last trip to Mexico and fell in love with her art immediately. I found them completely by chance, walking Avenida Federale, on my way to the Museo Nacional de Antropologia in Mexico City.

In honour of my 3,333rd post on this humble blog, I decided to post a song based on a tuning in which the octave is divided into one of the factors of 3,333. Like you do. Initially I sought a piece derived from 101 equal portions to the octave, but to no avail, so I instead went with Claudi Menaghin’s version of “Contrapunctus 4” from Bach’s The Art of Fugue, rendered in 33-EDO.
The fifths in 33 are very flat in comparison to most “normal” tunings, and consequently many of the interval relationships are quite unusual, at least from a twelve-tone perspective. This should be noticeable to you even if you are not classically trained, although I do not think that the transition is particularly jarring. To the contrary, I think that I prefer this take on it.
This is definitely a portal to another world
Oh faery pools *wistful sigh*

Get you best paper, cut a circle and fold it, fold it so that the circumference falls on a fixed point inside. Repeat, using random folds. Now see the creases. This is how you paper-fold an ellipse.
This would be kinda fun to try if I could actually cut out round circles
C’est une métaphore. Vous mettez la chose à tuer juste entre vos dents, mais vous ne lui donnez pas le pouvoir de faire sa mise à mort.
are we done with this joke yet?
i was worried that this post would be too pretentious
