I made some music with my odd sequencer! You can read about the sequencer, or try it out, or just listen – one album is 808 drum explosions, one is FM synths minimalism / ambience.

Some jazzbo hepcat once made an album in like 27/8 and so forth – a sort of deliberately weird version of Time Out – but in the liner notes he said that he was making music for future generations, that The Olds wouldn’t understand. Amusingly, we’re still mostly in four; just very fast and with crazy polyrhythms.

the cookies

I don’t think this recipe exists on the internet, and it came up at work, so here it is. This is an adjustment by my Mom of, we are pretty sure, the above Chipits recipe.

1 cup margarine / butter
1 cup brown sugar

1 and 3/4 cups flour
1 and 1/2 cups oats
1/2 cup oat bran
1/2 cup dried coconut
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup water
1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chocolate chips

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Stir together dry ingredients
  • Add vanilla to water
  • Cream butter and sugar together
  • Add dry ingredients alternately with the water & vanilla
  • Drop from a teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheets
  • Bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned
  • Makes 60 cookies

Some notes!
– I have never got 60 cookies out of this recipe, but I tend to eat a lot of the batter.
– You can replace the raisins with chocolate chips, nuts, as you see fit.
– My very wise younger sister added a dash of black pepper, which I recommend.
– Most dried coconut in the US of A is big chunks – you want something more “shredded”, like these.
