Home-milled flour for quick breads

Home-milled flour for quick breads Submitted by MontBaybaker on March 17, 2019 - 11:31pm.

Cool project: "I used pi to compose a song that lasts for 999,999 hours

Canton Becker, an electronic music composer and programmer, composed a procedurally generated song that uses the first billion digits of pi as its input. I haven't listened to all 114 years of the song yet, but I like what I have heard so far. From his statement: Becker programmed — or composed — an algorithm to generate music using the first one billion digits of pi (π). These digits supply the "turn signals" used to determine every musical expression in the song. Each digit (3.1415...) is resp...

Musician Creates a Million-Hour Song Based On the Number Pi

An anonymous reader quotes a report from Motherboard: Now, for Pi Day (March 14), music software programmer Canton Becker has crafted a million-hour song based on Pi that unfolds generatively on a virtual tape deck. Titled "Shepard's Pi," the song combines two of Becker's favorite infinities: Pi, and an auditory illusion called a Shepard tone, which he describes as an "unsettling sonic illusion of a pitch that climbs or descends forever, never reaching a top or a bottom." Found at PiSongs.com, u...

Profile of Peter Thiel's "junk science" journal from someone asked to write for it

Adam Becker was invited to write for Inference, a "quarterly review of the sciences" backed by billionaire Peter Thiel. Inference covers all sorts of interesting subjects, but has an alarming tendency to make no distinction between pseudoscience and the real thing: think Omni but with the dry imprimatur of academic style instead of cool paintings. So Becker went down the rabbithole (instead of getting paid by it) and wrote up a profile of the publication for Undark. A declaration in italics on ...

Did some knife shopping (pic heavy)

Sold most of my collection. Been a while since I bought a new knife. Picked up this Bradford Guardian 3.5 and so far I'm diggin' it. Izula has been my favorite fixie for a while.

I'll use it for fishing and woods walking. Can't yet comment on the "Nitro V" steel. It's a high saber flat grind with the same t...

Ohio State Rep. Who Voted Against Pay Raise Donates His to Charity

State and local elected officials are getting a raise thanks to a law passed last month. At least one legislator says he plans to give the amount of the raise away to charity because of the way it came about.

Republican Representative John Becker of Cincinnati called the process shameless and voted against the bill and the veto override. “You kn...
