Naming & The Hyperreal, Part 0

When I first joined the NFT game in a serious way, starting I believe the day after Valentine’s Day (I was doing it before, but that’s about when I remember it exploding), I began using the nom de guerre NFT Trillionaire, World-Famous Crypto Artist.

I even got an attribution in a “legitimate” news article under that name, about the NFT real estate craze.

According to the Debrief, quoting me:

“The NFT market is all about what people agree on as having value, including things that exist only virtually or digitally,” Timothy Boucher, an NFT artist who goes by ‘NFT Trillionaire, World-Famous Crypto Artist’ online, told The Debrief. “Almost anything can become valuable as an NFT under the right circumstances. It just depends on the people, the moment, and the asset.”

This was, for me, an extremely hyperreal moment, as per the Wikipedia definition:

“Hyperreality is seen as a condition in which what is real and what is fiction are seamlessly blended together so that there is no clear distinction between where one ends and the other begins.”

Interestingly, by the time “the media” had caught up with my use of this persona, it was already waning, as the excitement for the early burst of the NFT cryptoart explosion was beginning to diminish

Anyway, this post is just a place-holder so I can tie this together better later. Sorry to be inconclusive, but /shrug this is blogging! A lot of it is “thinking out loud,” if memory serves…

Bagpipe Video: Beginner Left Hand / Right Hand Technique

This is, so far, one of the best first first bagpipe video lessons I’ve found for somebody starting out.

I’ve learned the scales from other videos, but this one has a critical step others are missing. To do your left hand only, fingers all on, fingers all off. And practice that. And then do left hand all on, right hand all on, right hand all off (keep left hand on). Repeat that.

Especially the right hand, on a ‘long’ practice chanter it can be hard to hit all those holes. And I don’t have small hands either. So this whole thing of cutting away from the scale and just focusing on closing all the holes accurately and consistently seems like a significant reference point towards developing coherence.

It seems more fundamental even than going note by note before you’ve had a chance to fully solve the problem of closing all the holes…

This video also uses bagpipe tabs which is really cool. Sadly, the website this video links out to in descriptions, tryscotland.com, fails to load. I was hoping for dozens more videos like these…

Javascript rapid word input tool

I went off on pretty much a tear earlier investigating the possibility of coming up with some kind of rapid communication board which would allow you to input words, not letters.

I went once or twice around the bend, and found the closest match in an app called DocsPlus which gives you the ability to create customizable word-bars. There’s a 28 day free trial. It’s interesting, but my use case is to be able to rapidly paste in the results of these sentence creation actions into Firefox in a spreadsheet. It was too combersome with switching back and forth between tabs to access other word bars.

So I cooked up some Javascript I’m still tinkering with which looks at the moment like this:
