Superflat Single #42 / Tachikoma



Tachikoma is now weighing in with his last post from Canada....... ever? Well, probably not, but most of his posts are gonna be coming from Taipei for a while.

I'm flying out tomorrow and I managed to get an apartment set up today, which I admit is cutting it pretty close.

This piece of song is as unclear as my thoughts right now. It's 'kumo no jutsu,' which the boats' boo might be able to decode as "The Cloud Technique." But the word "cloud" is synonymous with "bear", so it could also be "The Bear Technique."

By placing my hands together and invoking the names of various animals from the Chinese zodiac, I can execute the cloud technique: by which I mean, I get to fly away and live in Taipei for a while, rejecting all hardware analog synths for digital ones, and connecting to the net via my new wireless studio. The city of Taipei is almost completely covered by a huge dub-powered 40,000 hz wireless signal anyway. Abandon your modems and routers.

I'm sitting at 710W3's house now. We hashed out a bunch of ideas over the last few evenings, and there've been many changes to our hometown, Boomcity.biz, as a result. There's a live chat room now that's always on.....

For rejecting your life and attempting a 'transvaluation of all values,' I highly recommend retiring to Taipei's industrial countryside. It's better than living in a Pole album. 14.7% better. And if you feel the need to, you can hit on all the hometown girls you want, especially the ones that you shouldn't hit on, so you can leave with a broken heart and knew you did the right thing. And what's more, you can learn something.

Thanks to technorati I now know that people like SomaFM's Cliqhop and the-unscene are finding their ways to blips and ifs, playing us on their radio stations.... the memes are being distributed gradually. It's our way of imitating unappreciated art. Also, Blipsandifs is the 668,00th most popular blog in the world. Our goal for next year: 665,000th. I know we can do it, guys.

I don't want to get your hopes up too much. But if you ask me, this blog, and Boomcity, and the airwaves, are soon gonna be getting regularly flooded with data after typhoon-class online jam sessions. People are gonna invent new forms of comic books and flash studios. Videoblogs (also known as "vidweblogs" among truant street youth) might even show up. There's a webcam built into my new studio.

I'll be content with more content.

KUMO NO JUTSU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
