I’m a dot collector. Been actively collecting dots since toddlerville. For better and worse it’s been devoid of strategic purpose, with a few exceptions. The collecting is fun but the most fun is connecting them. That’s when I make stuff. This website is a trunk full of that stuff.
Each dot is a knowledge zone built on sensual contact and book learnin’. Mostly driven by accidental curiosity and a prefrontal cortex that vacations a lot. That’s ok. Leaves more room up there for dots.
Politics, African polyrhythm in every form, baseball, jazz, history, abstract art & poetry, psychology, 1930s Appalachian music, surrealist art & dada, blues, evolutionary biology, avant-gardism, Norman Rockwell, old cylinder recordings, activism, bebop & free jazz, media, design, Country music, Japanese Gagaku, ragas, flamenco, journalism, prog rock & odd time signatures, anthropology & belief systems, weird movies and lots of et cetera.
Those dots, and so many others wander, network and mate in unexpected ways that are funny, profound, ridiculous and logical; like apple / pi / iTunes. Or Donald Trump / president / tango. Or Polarity / 1.
