are you there, Moriarty?

We’re having fun making spazportraits. Would anyone want to make a soundtrack for this?


are you there, Moriarty?

Are you there Moriarty? is a parlour game in which two players at a time participate in a duel of sorts. Each player is blindfolded and given a rolled up newspaper (or anything that comes handy and is not likely to injure) to use as a weapon. The players then lie on their backs head to head with about three feet of space between them – or in other versions hold outstretched hands, or stand holding hands as in a handshake. The starting player says “Are you there Moriarty?”. The other player, when ready, says “Yes”. At this point the start player attempts to hit the other player with his newspaper by swinging it over his head. The other player then attempts to hit the starting player with his newspaper. The first player to be hit is eliminated from the game and another player takes his place. The objective of the game is to remain in the game as long as possible.

There is a small amount of strategy to the game. In order to avoid being hit, each player may roll to one side or the other. The decision of which direction to roll, or whether to roll at all often determines whether the player is hit by his opponent. A player who can quickly roll out of the way after speaking or striking will have a definite advantage in the game. However, like most parlor games, the appeal of this game largely lies in its spectacle and humor rather than its strategy.

Here is the picture from the New College PCP performance. I remember us using Live 2.
Does anyone know when Ableton added the cross fader feature? Anyway, enjoy.

Just rediscovered this half-hour mashup mix I did in 2001 in a car on the way to play some Bonk festival thing with Tim. It was a couple days after he and I decided to start cutting up pop songs and use Live to mix them (I think it was version 3 then). There’s a picture floating around somewhere with us in our rubber suits and chimp masks at the New College Halloween party that year.

It still sounds pretty good, though it’s kind of hard to listen to “Get Your Freak On” these days, and there are a few obnoxiously stretched moments, but overall still a crowd pleaser.

This is one of the best ideas I have seen in a long time. It is an iTunes plugin that scans your iTunes library and looks for upcoming concerts by those artists, in the city you live in. And, as a bonus, it take the place of the visualizer, which I don’t use anyway.

Ba Boosh!

Joseph Faber’s “Euphonia”, as shown in London in 1846. The machine produced not only ordinary and whispered speech, but it also sang the anthem “God Save the Queen”.

Also some sassy samples of senescent speech synthesizers on some site.
