What I like about Britney Spears (Who could resist a title like that?)

The production!

That's right... if you're going to listen to nearly-tongue-in-cheek-crap-pop-bordering-on electronica... Damn does britney have a team of brilliant producers!

Then again... I'm a sucker for bit-crushing, filters, reversed samples, and vocoders. Especially when they all happen at the same time... for three minutes.

Dear Jive Records, I propose the following tag line,
"Learn to compress like the best, listen to Britney!"

For more britney spears fun...

About that Delay Calculator...

I learned a lot about the horrors of javascript when combined with blogging... Oh the horror! If you received any extraneous e-mails, updates, etc... oops, sorry :(

As it turns out, you can really only use the Delay Calculator in the blog post itself, or on the Delay Calculator's hosted location (don't worry about what that means... I kind of just now made up that term).

Other interesting discoveries:
  1. You can't use the spacebar for tap tempo on the blog post because it makes the page scroll down.
  2. Internet Exporer still sucks (get firefox!)
Well the second one isn't really a discovery so I guess that only leaves one.

I know what you're thinking...
What the heck Jim... why didn't you test this thing better before wasting my time on it?
Well... I don't know, I'm obviously a huge hypocrite but... I said I was sorry :(

At least now I get to check off one of the items from my, 'Make your own tools' Post. Hooray!

Pimped out with a Free Delay Calculator!

I made this... I hope it comes in handy for ya :) You can use it in a few different ways:
  1. Type a number in to the BPM (Beats per minute) textbox
  2. Click the "Tap Tempo!" button on the beats to generate BPM
  3. Click on the Delay Calculator (to select it) and Press any key - try the spacebar Enter Key - to generate BPM

note: The triplet delay times are for just one note... not all three triplets (despite the picture) ;)

Comic: Confusing Your Parents

Another comic! Can you guess what song he's singing in the shower?
