I recently heard a recording of the premiere performance of Nine Tas by the Austin New Music Co-op and thought I’d share it here. The singers are Ashley Gaar, Kathy Hatch, Wendi Olinger and Brandon Young
The NYTimes is reporting a new bicycle sharing program for Washington, D.C. The kicker?…it’s supported by a deal with Clear Channel which provides exclusive access to bus shelter advertising. So if you’re biking in D.C. try not to get so distracted by the bus shelter ads that you put yourself in danger.
Here’s my latest web 2.0-a-riffic, GoogleMaps, GPS, mashup thingamabob idea: a website that allows users to view common flightpaths for a particular location and evaluates the location based on frequency of flyovers and noise level. Would be a great tool for noise-sensitive home buyers. Or for flyover collectors, plane spotters, etc.
Thanks to good weather and childcare (and a job away from my house, of course!) I finally got back to commuting by bike. Friday I rode the 10+ miles each way. It was a bit much for the first time back in the saddle, but a great ride overall. Most of the route is on the Hudson River hike and bike trail, squeezed between the Hudson River (imagine that) and I-787 (who put that highway there!?). As long as I rode with my face to the river and went fast enough for the wind in my ears to drown out the noise of the highway…it was blissful. Looking forward to riding it again.
From the Cycling ’74 Users Forum: “This new version will be available as a download on April 22nd, with packaged versions available shortly thereafter. Compatible versions of MSP and Jitter will be released at the same time.”
Exciting stuff. I’ve got a few shows right around that time, so I’ll probably wait a week or two before upgrading. But I’m looking forward to digging in to a new version!
