Blogging, phase 2.1
Please come visit me at my new blog home at tommoody.us. As of this month, I will no longer be posting new content to digitalmediatree.com/tommoody. Comments are still open here (unless closed due to spam).
The newsreader feed for the new blog is this rss address. Or this one.
The blog you are reading commenced Feb 2001 and culminated, more or less, with BLOG, the exhibition, where it was shown in a gallery as a performance work. That exhibition ended last month, so the past few weeks' posts have been "transitional."
I am keeping all my Digital Media Tree pages online and will be updating many of them (resume, archives, etc)--this is a friendly transition and I look forward to continuing to work with the Tree.
The new blog does not currently have a comment feature enabled but that could change as I adapt to my new environment. Comments have been an important of the current blog and I'll be discussing that more at the new turf.
A parting plug: please check out the CD I just released with earcon (John Parker) at CD Baby, titled Scratch Ambulance. We're really proud of it and think you might enjoy it.
Update, 2013: I hid comments on this blog due to the steady drip of link spam. They were quite active from 2001-2007, trust me, and have all been archived. I may turn them back on periodically to settle an argument about what went down in these dynamic years of the utopian blogosphere. --TM

At tommoody.us I just put up some new music, and a post about the '60s beatnik TV horror show host Ghoulardi. It's kind of an experiment, to work with a different format and post items without comments.
Update: More posts have since been added.
An interview with musician and animator Silicious, by Petra Cortright, commissioned by Rhizome.org, is on the Rhizome front page*. Earlier posts on Silicious are here.
I love the music of Silicious' video Georg: like slowed down Giorgio Moroder with call and response vocals, ringing telephones, etc.
Update: Just noticed that Rhizome tabbed the interview "ironic." That is way off base--this is very sincere and emotional work, and I believe Petra and others are sincerely interested in it. "Visionary," "playful," expressionistic," non-status quo," "angsty," "political," "disturbing" are the words I would use. Or "freakedelic," to use Daniel's term.
Update, 2011: The Rhizome link has been changed to http://rhizome.org/editorial/2007/jul/14/interview-with-silicious/
