one groove

Take a guess at what you're looking at.

No, it's not the moon and no, it's not some 4th grader's attempt to recreate the Grand Canyon, in miniature, via elaborate sand sculpture. Here we have a photograph of one single groove of a vinyl record (remember those?) magnified 1000 times. Beautiful, no? Feast your eyes on a few other close-up shots of records, at various magnification, including one in 3-D. (if you have some glasses laying around.)

megapolis seeks new blood

Have an audio-y performance, presentation, installation, workshop or spectacle up your sleeve that's ready for the world? You're in luck. The fine folks over at Megapolis are accepting proposals until Feburary 14th (very romantic!) for the 2010 MegapoHappening, scheduled for May 14-16 in Baltimore. Extra points for all ideas that jive with this year's theme of transport.

[Maybe it's finally time for me to resurrect the Pony Express and stash a recorder in my mail pouch. I'd hit these guys up for sponsorship, straightaway.]
