I'll plot your drawing
Send me an SVG (it will help if it's optimized for plotting! ask me what that means) and I'll plot one in your color of choice onto your paper of choice and mail it to you.
I can only plot things that can be plotted by an axidraw V3.
I'll share pen/paper options if it seems like anyone is interested. 🙂
If you have a multi-color idea tell me! Maybe we can do it.
Boosts welcome, but I will have to cap this at 20 folks for the moment (if that many are interested!) and see how things go. First come first serve... :)
@poiseunderchaos your scenario sounds good. I'm watching raptors now. ttyl
@poiseunderchaos and dennis nedry shuts down the whole park
@poiseunderchaos in the movie the t-rex pushes the car over the edge and the people hang out.
@paul god creates equal temperament.
god destroys equal temperament.
god creates man.
man destroys god.
man creates equal temperament.
equal temperament... eats man.
woman inherits the earth.
@paul full disclosure: this all began b/c I'm watching it again now :)
@paul lovely <3 <3 <3 I'm over the moon <3 <3 <3
@hecanjog Wu: There are no unauthorized musical scales in Jurassic Park
Malcom: How do you know?
Wu: Well because all the musical scales in Jurassic park are octave repeating. We've engineered them that way.
Malcom: But, again, how do you know they are all octave repeating? It's not like somebody got in the park with a field recorder and pulled up the scales spectrograms?
Wu: Our brains control our perception of pitch. It's really not that difficult. All scales inherently resonate at the octave. They just require an extra coefficient in an equation to make them non-repeating. We simply deny them that.
Malcom: John, the kind of control you're attempting is... it's not possible. If there's one thing the history of our evolution has taught us, is that music will not be contained. Music breaks free, it expands, and crashes through cultural barriers. Painfully maybe even. Dangerously even, but, uh. Well, there it is.
@paul this wasn't some harmony that was obliterated by deforestation or the building of a dam.. equal temperamentalists had their shot and nature selected them for extinction.
I simply don't understand this <something> attitude especially from a scientist. how can we stand in the light of discovery and not act?
Malcolm: what's so great about discovery? it's a violent penetrative act that scars what explores what you call discovery and I call the rape of the natural world.
Sattler: well the question is how can you know anything about an extinct ecosystem? ...and therefore how could you ever assume that you could control it?
You have harmonies in this building that are poisonous: you picked them because they sounded good, but these are aggressive living things that have no idea what century they're in & they'll defend themselves violently if necessary.
Dr Malcolm: Gee the lack of humility before nature being displayed here staggers me.
Dr Hammond: Well thank you Dr Malcolm but I think things are a little bit different than you and I have theorized.
Dr Malcolm: Yeah, I know. They're a lot worse.
Lawyer Guy: Wait a second, now. You haven't even seen the...
Dr Hammond: don't, don't -- I want to hear every viewpoint, I really do.
Dr Malcolm: Don't you see the danger? John, inherent in what you're doing here... sonic power is the most awesome force the planet has ever seen but you wield it like a kid that's found his dad's gun.
Dr Malcolm: I'll tell you the problem with the sonic power you're using here. It didn't require any discipline to attain.
Dr Hammond: Absolutely spectacular designs, spared no expense!
@paul yessss haha
@paul They're harmonious at 8 months and I do mean harmonious. That one... she looks at you, you can see she's working things out.
They never resonate the same place twice. They were testing the edges for weaknesses systematically.
@paul wait duh!
There's no unauthorized harmony in Jurassic Park. Non-western music theory, uh, finds a way.

@paul lol sorry, I feel like there is something fun here in the intersection between jurassic park quotes and nerdery
@paul for millions of years, the fossilized amber contained the basic genetic code for jazz-funk, and some funk-jazz.
@paul they're moving in just intervals! they *do* move in just intervals!!
@paul nah, it's just cool is all :)
@paul this is one heck of a proof of concept
