I have no joke here, I just like saying "museek concrett" in a really nasal voice

Ah, let's see, Heroes premiere was excellent, promising a solid start for the season. The Dread Pirate Roberts came to mind, in an odd way. As did this advice: "Don't mess with HRG." Otherwise, I will reserve commentary until I've had more think time. (ETA: Note spoilers in comments.)

Got excellent feedback from Beta Reader of Giving Excellent Feedback, who as usual knows where my story is even when I've lost track. shitsu_tonka, my apologies for making you wait forever for your ficathon story, but it'll be another week. On the plus side, I'm kinda fired up about the story now, so I think (hope) it will be worth it.

Plan is to work on work-work tonight, though, because my brain seems to have caught fire there. Hooray for making the employer happy!

Random link for today: Okay. I fully admit my geekery. I also fully admit my musical geekery. But nonetheless, the story of how the first version of the Doctor Who theme was recorded was utterly fascinating. I knew it would be technically interesting, because synthesis was in its earliest days, and multi-track recording didn't really exist either. But it was even more interesting than I'd expected.

Side note: I like Orbital's live version a whole bunch. Otherwise, none of the re-recordings are even a tiny patch on that first musique concrète version.

    Today's not my birthday, nor is it penwiper26's, no matter what LJ is telling you. What an odd bug to have, after all these years. Today…
