I actually thought this was a brilliant little story. Really good fun, very well written and well performed, and thoroughly enjoyable. If they can keep this up throughout the whole series. If they can it’ll be amazing.

Some more thoughts on the littlebits iOS app
I was thinking about this a bit more the other day, and really I’d like to see the ability to prototype directly in the app. That would, without a doubt, be the coolest thing possible to do with this app. It would be nice to play with a set up and be able to create stuff in the app that used not only the bits you owned, but others, and even prototype bits, or bits on the bitlab too.
That would be my preferred experience.
Listening to Laurie Anderson’s “Heart of a Dog”
So just a few first impressions really, after only listening through once.
Firstly, I loved it. It was very story focused. It was funny, and sad, and poignant, and beautiful. I really enjoyed listening to it a lot.
So I’m expecting to really enjoy it on all the subsequent listens too.
Listening to David Sylvian’s music … Manafon
Another problematic album to listen to, but it’s actually very good when you give it a chance and listen to it with focus and care it is well worth it. There’s a huge amount of depth and beauty in these songs. There’s always something new to find in each one, but it does require patience and that’s not always easy. Neither are these pieces, but just because they’re not easy does not mean that they’re not good. They are.
A handy ruler …
I got this on Kickstarter. Handy little thing it is too.
Listening to David Sylvian, The Good Son vs. The Only Daughter
This is an excellent album. Really interesting remixes of the Blemish album. Well worth listening to, and in fact something that I’ve listened to often and still do.
Reminder: SoundLab Play Space is coming up
I’ve posted on this before, but here’s a little reminder. The event will be completely amazing, or at least I hope so anyway. It’s starting to shape up now and really come together.
If you’re interested in attending or being a part of it in some way, then take a look at this page on the SoundLab web site.
Awesome news! The Tenth Doctor and Donna return with Big Finish
This really is excellent. There was a rumour that this was coming and I really hoped it would, and it has. It’s a long time to wait, the first volume is out in May next year, but at least it’s coming, and, if it’s volume 1 in May, then there’s sure to be a volume 2 not too far behind!
Some more Olegtron 4060 goodness
I really like the Olegtron 4060. It’s pretty awesome. I haven’t played around with it for ages, so it’s good to try it again and make some sounds.
More Olegtron 4060 fun
I should use this a lot more than I currently do. It is so much fun. I’m not sure exactly what I’m doing, except of course where I get something I like and continue to make sounds with it.
