I recently started fiddling about with last.fm, primarily as a way to claim the SIGHUP profile there and to keep track I’ve what I’d been listening to on my portable mp3 player. So I’ve added a last.fm widget over there in the sidebar, just for the fun of it.

I might try to make something more elaborate with it, but for now, anyone stopping by can see what I’ve been listening to for the past week.

Finally struck upon enough momentum to add some new content to the Sounds Found Project. Not sure what kept from putting some new things.

The new bits (three in all) were recorded in my yard, one in the rain in July and two from my backyard while I tired to get the omnipresent cicadas here in Toronto. Omnipresent that is until I’ve tried to record them, and then they seem to go silent. Took a few tries to get them proper.

Click here to get them, top three files in the list. Here’s a little clip of the loudest cicada bit I captured, isolated for your listening pleasure.
