trying to remember why I emailed these to myself

[Sun, 07 Dec 2014 15:27:22 +0000]
Sometimes, while at the bar or hanging out with folks I email things to myself - the name of the bartender, a movie or book someone recommended, etc. Often, I'd come across something at work and email a link from my work email to my personal email account. Over time, I've forgotten about many of these things. But since I need to clean up my email box, I'm just going to post them here so that they can languish in another medium. Software * Overview Project [] for document visualization. * Essentia [] for audio analysis. Books, etc. * Blood Meridian [] * The journal of a tour made by Señor Juan de Vega [pseud.] the Spanish minstrel of 1828-9, through Great Britain and Ireland, a character assumed by an English gentleman. [] * The Master and the Margarita [] * Capturing Analog Sound for Digital Preservation: Report of a Roundtable Discussion of Best Practices for Transferring Analog Discs and Tapes [] + I think I just wanted to read the forward/preface. Film * Last Days Here []: music documentary. * Andy Summers, 'Equinox' [] + Saw this when I was a teenager on the Discovery Channel. I'd been looking for it for years. * Spiderman - Revolt in the Fifth Dimension [] + From the description: This story, along with its characters and backgrounds, was taken from the Rocket Robin Hood episode "Dimentia Five []." + These should be required viewing by librarians, especially those interested in digitization, etc. Quotes * "Force has no place where there is need of skill." — Herodotus + This is very similar to Fernando Sor []'s principal of gaining more from skill than from strength with regard to guitar playing.

    Interesting. I often take note of what I am afraid I would forget, too. And sometimes I find those notes after a lot of time, forgetting -oddly- the reasons or the context in which I jotted them. Nice to share.
