thursday march 26

today i watched part of a video interview between barack obama and david simon, then let the rest of the conversation play while i started making dinner. for whatever reason, the youtube video was recorded at an unusually low volume, and because i was making a little noise while preparing food across the room, i really had to crank up my computer speakers to hear the discussion. knowing i’d forget about that increased volume, i left myself an all-caps note in a textedit window that said "TURN VOLUME DOWN." predictably though, when i returned to my computer, i instinctively clicked away from textedit without paying attention to the note my past self had left for future/present me, and two minutes later when i started playing a hot chip song in itunes, i nearly had a heart attack.

...trying to think of aforementioned Hot Chip song that could create a heart attack despite their dulcet tones and reasonable beats...

i couldn't link it because it's off the recently-leaked new album, but even those dulcet tones can be pretty shocking when they're played at a volume that's five times louder than you're expecting.
