Vrijdagmarkt in the snow
This could be our only snow day of the winter, but it will be nice while it lasts.
Reading about mummies, looking out at the Zuivelbrug, and listening to the Dinzu Artefacts episode of the Norelco Mori podcast. One of my favorite labels of the last couple of years.
Writing an awful lot of stuff about mummies this morning given how little I really know about them…
My friend Michael and I have been working on Local Memory: A History of Music in Austin for a couple years now. Work is ongoing, but today we made it public.
Yacht harbor sculpture on a lunchtime walk
A day behind our projected soft launch date and still deep in that last 90% of tasks that shows up after you’ve done the first 90%.
Morning frost on the fields
Christmas afternoon walk in the Kempen
Listening to the John Denver Christmas album with The Muppets. The best.
Firefox Color is a fun browser theming tool if you need a trivial reason to give Firefox a try. Here’s mine.
This morning I’m officially a legal resident in Belgium.
Pre-dawn Sunday morning documentation writing for a project that needed this months ago.
The Mellotron is right up my alley in its inherent tension between mechanized reproducibility and analog serendipity.
An impromptu recording of “Boat Song” with a real Mellotron one late night in L.A. remains one of my favorite touring memories.
The Public Domain Review is doing their end-of-year fundraiser. It’s a great resource, and if you sign up in time, you’ll get a thematic set of postcards. I’ve helped with a couple rounds of reward fulfillments in the past and can vouch for the effort and care that Adam puts into the project.
I would love to try to recreate how Hiva Alizadeh layers these threads in ways that work both sculpturally and as images.
🎙️ Just listened to the first episode of the Artist in the Archive podcast with Jer Thorp, currently ‘innovator-in-residence’ at Library of Congress. Looking forward to catching up on the rest of the catalog.
These handkerchiefs from the new Dries Van Noten line featuring art from Robert Beatty…
I love all the work the negative space does in these ink drawings of L.A. scenes by Christoph Niemann
Grim Grains is an online collection of vegan recipes by Rekka Bellum. I love the specificity and intentionality of every element.
Sarah is in Le Monde on the reopening of the Tervuren museum in the context of the debates of recent weeks sparked by the report on cultural restitution submitted to Macron.
I’ve been using SourceNote for a couple of days now and have found it helpful. It’s invisible until you need it. Great low friction way to save ephemeral or scratch text without losing momentum in your work.
I’ve been using MarsEdit as a drafts drawer for microblogging posts—a place to drop links to things I’d like to post later. It has me posting more things that I’d otherwise forget to return to.
These orange banded quarter-cylinder tiles make for one of my favorite doorways on the morning commute.
Love this peekaboo window over the water in the little café by our house.
