I guess I'm just playing through all the Delarosa (and Asora) catalog today

Open-Unmix - a new benchmark in music source separation:
sigsep.github.io/open-unmix/ - finally, fully open-source & high-quality music source separation. Well done folks! #deeplearning #machinelistening

I just heard about and browser today. Distributed web, here I come. This looks rad and no offense to the also actually like, maybe practical right now?

Huh. Freenode doesn't let me connect when I'm routing traffic thru a VPN? 😕

I'm tempted to try to finish the story Sancho (the false Sancho) starts to tell in the false Quixote:

(Paraphrased) "Once upon a time there were two mushrooms who went to look for kings under the sea."

I'm a latecomer (I think?) to pipenv, but I like it bery much.

Dogtown USA: population 2 dogs still driving me a bit nuts.

There are two dogs on the block now, and they have been barking at each other for three hours.

Keith Fullerton Whitman kind of helps. I guess I'm getting used to slightly more peace and quiet of a smaller town?

It's still pretty lively down here now that the students are back. Maybe I need to move to the woods.

Terre Thaemlitz' Deproduction being tagged as ambient on discogs is... technically accurate I guess. This is a very beautiful and very difficult record to listen to - not background music...

Also, for anyone interested, right now this is how I plan to do it:
-Contact HKers on reddit to clear up the current charity situations and ask which of the two funds to prefer
-set up a new Bandcamp page for it (I was thinking of releasing it under a label I am planning to launch, if there are no objections)
-once the crisis is over or anything happens where we can no longer send money to the charities, switch to free download with no way of payment (so I dont profit from it)

It's definitely written unsympathetically -- Quixote is basically a dense psychopath and Sancho is a hopeless idiot -- but I think you can read it sympathetically in the spirit of the original even while the narrator is being ultra-pious and condemning sins or whatever. I'm enjoying reading it, and sorta tempted to re-read the original after this...

(They also admit by comparison Cervantes' Quixote kinda beat it out of the park) -- anyway so far I agree with them. It's good enough to make me wonder if Cervantes wrote it as a brilliant ploy to add this crazy meta-plot element to book II. Even if not, it's pretty decent fanfic. (Even tho Avellaneda is def not a Cervantes fan lol)

Cervantes spends a fair bit of time in book II of the real Quixote talking about how shit Avellaneda is, and I got the impression the general consensus was that the false Quixote wasn't that great, but maybe I'm swayed by the translator's introduction where they ask you keep an open mind b/c they feel like had Cervantes never published the original, the false Quixote would have lived on as a great Spanish novel.

I mean Cervantes is a genius if you ask me so I wouldn't put this past him, but that would be one hell of a great prank.

Write a sequel to your own novel under a pseudonym who is both overly pious and more vulgar and spends a bit of time insulting you... then write a better novel that establishes a true history against the backdrop of this false history, and have characters from the false history come into the true history to establish and testify that it is false and having met the true Quixote they can see how false and bad the false Quixote is, etc.
