Variations on Le Mur

I use Audacity for editing audio, but after 15 years still know very little beyond the basics.  Apparently, there's this thing where you can lock it in continuous "play", and play back forward and reverse by scooting the cursor around. Not even sure it's supposed to happen.

 Here's what it did to Mr F Le Mur's "Andy of Bug Porn #10"

And here is a handy link to more Le Mur.

Update: It's an Audacity feature called "scrubbing" and it's found on Audacity 2.1.3, under "transport".
If your mouse has a scroll wheel, you can speed or slow the playback.  Wild wacky stuff.

The line is up

The line feed, that is.  93 hours, repeating every 3 days and 21 hours, with new material trickling through it.  This concludes phase 1 of Cut-up Radio's launch.  In honor of the event, here's a little something.

The Action Signal Tape

Update:  well, if you're interested-- I tried putting it on the desktop computer a week ago and it's crashed 3 times.  We're back on the laptop now, where it lived for the first month.

Scaling back a little: not a 24/7 feed, more like a radio show, with me putting something together every day at about the same time.  The hours will be announced over there on the right.
