Whistling in the Wind
« on: April 06, 2012, 10:10:14 pm »
clickity clickity clickity clickity clack. thump thump thump. clickity clickity clickity...

Listening to the sounds all around, i wonder what a library USED to sound like. Now you hear all sorts of noise. Typing, touchscreens, phones ringing, conversations....

What does the sound of a turning page even sound like? I'm sure I've never heard one in these hallowed halls. Too much noise... too much interference.

Maybe one of these days I need to come back around closing time, and head on up to the fifth floor.

Take down one of the big volumes and just... flip the pages.

Recall NavaWho was a Difficult tounge{ for me
to know /-/owever it was not as TRICKEY as NA'HO


ONCE I KNEW? the photo of the sound of the nhk audio had been REMoved
from my (tp://i43.tinypic.com/29uvlvr.jpg) i did search my CD to see if i had
kept a copy for myself {&I dId) while CDing i also found the origional .wav
file fome whence the photo i made came. so i have both the 0.wav &uvlvr
A JPG. My point in this is in translating. http://web.pdx.e

Card files opening and closing, people talking, book carts being wheeled about, doors opening and closing, the sound of books being stacked, babies crying. At least that's what I remember about pre-computer, pre-cell-phone libraries.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

@n0p: I'm starting to be able to read your cipher from time to time. That's awesome.
