Today marks three years of Adventures in Audio and 200 posts!

For something silly, here’s what I created the first time I used the AT&T Text-to-Speech Demo. Sometimes it pops up in my iTunes and always cracks me up.

For something retrospective, here are some stats from the last three years:

Best 5 Google Search Terms That Brought People Here

  1. kieran hebden eyes (FYF Fest: Four Tet)
  2. rumba beats for ice cream truck music (Ice Cream Beat)
  3. yolo (KDVS Wins! Station ID)
    (probably not what they were looking for)
  4. japan naked curling (Moe Meguro Practice Session)
    (also probably not what they were looking for)
  5. “I tried to stick around for punk kids Heller Keller, but watching one of the singers put out a cigarette on the ground inside the gallery and then tell the audience ‘fuck all you guys’ three times in five minutes was my limit. If that were my venue, I wouldn’t invite them to play again.” (Ema and Her Lady Parts)
    I just Googled this myself and found that Heller Keller has been using this quote from my post as their bio on Bandcamp. I mean, that’s pretty great.

Thanks for reading and listening! Many more audio adventures to come.

    ” Sind Tweedjacken, Cordhosen und eine ehemalige Mitgliedschaft in der SS denn eine Grundlage, einen Menschen zu beurteilen?” Das fragen Sie, was schon lustig genug ist, die einen tragen Cordhosen, die anderen sind in der SS. Noch komischer aber ist, dass Sie, der nicht verstehen kann, warum Menschen nach ihrer Mode und ihrer Gruppenzugehörig beurteilt werden, ohne Probleme nach Nationalität urteilen können: “Typisch deutsch”. Das ist wirklich lustig.
