10-9-08 Aspects of Physics – Ping

Posted by Sean on October 9, 2008

Ho hum, the Dow Jones dropped almost 700 points today. So, how about those Giants?

(Money quote for me from that article: “Most of the day was relatively calm, and the trading floor was quieter than usual because of the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur.” Which implies to me that, if part of the trading floor hadn’t been home observing a religious holiday, things would have been even worse. And some people doubt the existence of God…)

Anyway, your neat thing today. The ever-reliable Maria Levitsky was filling in for the equally-reliable Irwin on WFMU yesterday, and one of the many many songs that she played that I intend to buy someday was from San Diego’s Aspects of Physics: Cummulative erRror, off 2007’s Marginalized Information Forms Two: Cummulative erRror.

Needless to say, I couldn’t find it on YouTube.

But I did find an acceptable stand-in: Ping, of Aspect of Physics’s Marginalized Information Forms One: Ping, from 2004.

It may seem a little long (at 10 minutes even) and sound a little repetitive, the way it seems to be a little cold above the Arctic Circle. All I have to say to that is: stay with it. It doesn’t really sneak up on you. You have to sit back, relax and let it sneak up on you. (By the way, this could have been the soundtrack for much of my working life in New Jersey)
