Metropolis, Music & Moms
Nokia is paying DJ Shadow to take a bunch of user-submitted samples and create songs from various cities. San Francisco has already been uploaded and from the sounds of it, my city consists of trolley bells, seagulls, the Sausalito Ferry, the Alcatraz foghorn and Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs repeating the words, "Listen...these are the sounds."
I would've included the voice of the Tamale Lady, the clacking of computer keys and the cuss of a tourist caught off guard by the price of a Blue Bottle Coffee artisanal microroast.
Happy Mother's Day to my Mom, Mr. Wonderful's Mom, and all the Mom's I know.
