sympathetic vibrations

The dissonance sounds right,
The note they said was wrong,
The one they told me never would belong,
And I’m finally tuned to the sympathetic sound,
The city resonates, we hum along…
I met a man who makes balloons turn into animals.
He dates a girl who plays the saxophone between her toes
And everyone’s new and everyone glows with something I had never seen.
Its like the secret
They are telling me that makes my heart go
Oh oh
oh oh
oh oh

Sympathetic Vibrations - The Paper Raincoat

Now that I’m back from Austria I thought I should post something. So here is another little ditty from the Wedding CD I made for my friends that where getting married. This track is a little more poppy and sentimental than what I’m generally into. But I can’t help it. The song is sweetly addictive ear candy.

Thanks Andy for the tip and also probably about 50% of the tips to date. Everybody please simultaneously thank Andy right now, with your mind. Good. Good mind thank yous.

HUMOUR - 3/5: Well it’s funny in a schadenfreude kind of way, but I didn’t go ha ha, I sort of went hyuk! if you know what I mean.

THEME - 5/5: This gif presents a very interesting concept indeed. Let me begin with a brief lesson on “sympathetic vibrations”:

A sympathetic vibration is a phenomenon where one thing vibrates as a response to another body with a similar wavelength being made to vibrate. For example if I shake a 10 foot tall giant, his 5 foot tall twin also starts shaking.

This gif suggests that klutzy heroics can be sympathetic. The cyclist is heroic by doing cool stunts for kids on a bike. He falls on his ass, but the camera man immediately realizes “I must help that brave stunt guy! For the kids!” and he falls on his face.

In the end the kids lose. But science wins, because we realize: If one person can be heroic, we can all be heroic.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why I bought a cape. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is also why I need one of you to bail me out, for punching an old man who laughed at my cape. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how I got a nearby passerby to punch me.

AESTHETIC - 3/5: Low res. Boo.

WATCHABILITY - 5/5: Well, people get hurt, so…

CATS - 0/5: No Cats.

Bass frequencies are going to be next to impossible to isolate; the best you
will probably be able to do is to put your subwoofer on a folded towel, so
that its contact with the ground is buffered and so the chassis cant induce
as much vibration. Also try moving the subwoofer more than two feet away
from any wall. This reduces the coupling effect that a subwoofer has with
vertical surfaces, which sets them vibrating sympathetically increasing the
bass response as heard by you, but also transmitting it through structure..

Anthony Doerrs ambitious and moving novel, All the Light We Cannot See, is
set during World War II and follows the parallel and then overlapping lives
of Marie Laure, a blind French girl, and Werner, a German orphan. Told in
short chapters, full of sensory details, its received some of the years best
reviews. Booklist called it a novel to live in, learn from, and feel bereft
over when the last page is turned. Doerr, who lives in Boise, Idaho with his
wife and twin sons, will be at Warwicks Wednesday.

2. Motorola RAZR VE20 The Motorola RAZR VE20 the latest dual band CDMA phone
in the Motorola RAZR range comes packed with a 2.0 megapixel camera, support
for Bluetooth, GPS and location services, and up to 4.36 hours continuous
talk time. The MicroSD card slot can support up to 8GB worth of memory and
the phone has an internal memory of 30MB.

Once I went shopping for a beach coat. I wandered around the store and spied
the perfect one. Royal blue with huge colored flowers around the bottom
edge. In this tutorial, we learn how to build a subwoofer out of cardboard.
You will need to buy SonoTube, which is giant cardboard tubing. It comes in
a variety of different sizes, so you can find one that will be around the
same size as your subwoofer.

Unfortunately, I love its service, especially in the Northeast where I live.
Verizon just has much better cellular coverage than the other guys.But even
Verizons signal doesnt reach into my house, and Im not alone.So I bought a
range extender. It connects to your home network and lets you use your
cellphone indoors.

Tyra, the well primped poodle, is apparently no different. Although she puts
up with her once monthly grooming, as soon as she gets home she will do her
best to undo the work of her style team and return herself to a more natural
doggie state. While she may play the part of a pampered pooch, at heart she
is a dog of the earth, and routinely has the earth in her coat to prove it..
