Vacation

19 09 2010

Friday the 10th was my last day at Gucci for the time being.

I’ve been on vacation for the last week. I’m currently visiting family in PA.

My last apartment lease also ended, so I’m looking for a new sublet in NYC before I can return.





Painting

I recently came across todayandtomorrow, a mind blowing contemporary art blog. It made me want to paint. I painted:

Oil on masonite.

It’s 4:51 AM. I’m broadcasting live from WFMU with my friend Jesse on the Frow Show. Here is the show. We are layering the clicks from my geiger counter over ambient music:

What fun!

With the large chamber gone, I’m able to setup properly:

A very comprehensive parts list used by EMC2. They sure buy a lot of IGBTs. Some Energy Fundamentals is a great overview of the current state of affairs with our various energy sources:

DOLLAR — A voucher currently exchangeable for the personal use and control of ten kilowatt hours of electrical energy or thirty kilowatt hours of gasoline.

This paper introduced me to Exergy.





Going All The Way

Today I start my new full-time job as CEO of Prometheus Fusion Perfection.  Set the controls for the heart of the Sun.





Wolfram|Alpha

7 05 2009

Just noticed Wolfram|Alpha has launched. So far: 2+2 = FAIL. I imagine their servers are overloaded from the world’s curiosity.

I’ll reserve judgement until I actually get some answers back!

UPDATE: false alarm.





MRI

10 04 2009

I’m toying with idea of buying this decommissioned MRI to extract it’s superconducting cable. I’ve spoke with a few people at Philips to gauge the feasibility of the idea. So far nobody knows. Extreme recycling.
