Yay. The second recording session was successful. I’ll do a rough edit now, then think abut some food and appropriate medication.

via TweetDeck

@danoot No it doesn’t work that way. One stereo mic for field recording. Relative levels of me and background are fixed at record time.

via TweetDeck in reply to danoot

Recording done. I hope. Sat next to an Australian woman whose husband is coach of the Jersey cricket team, arriving in KL tomorrow.

via TweetDeck

Also this means I won’t be able to enjoy “post-independence Malaya’s first revolving restaurant” tonight.

via TweetDeck

Mobile. Again. Back to Jalan Alor. With luck I will come back with usable sound recordings and without “Young lady?” or “DVD, Sir?”.

via TweetDeck

I’m not that worried about sounding like @JohnSafran, @danoot, but I guess it’s back out into the street to re-record all that. Sigh.

via TweetDeck

Hey can someone listen to this 37-second grab and tell me whether there’s just a tad too much background noise? arseh.at/kxv

via TweetDeck

Maybe I should take up that offer of a “young lady” and record that as a “Patch Monday” podcast bonus track…

via TweetDeck

Take 3 successful. Now, back to the hotel room to do the rough cut and be happy that no rerecording is needed.

via TweetDeck

Take 3 appears to have worked… checking…

via TweetDeck

@YourActuary I’m not quite sure how to take that…

via TweetDeck

Take 2 ruined by the other itinerant street singer.

via TweetDeck

Take one disrupted by itinerant disabled street singer.

via TweetDeck

OK, I’ve found a suitable spot, resisted offers of beer, and will enjoy some tea before recording.

via TweetDeck

Yes, @smperris @Wyld, I am indeed aware that the chances of the “young lady” actually being female…

via TweetDeck

NO I DO NOT WANT A YOUNG LADY! FFS!

via TweetDeck

This’d be so much easier if I worked for Channel Nine. I’d just record 10 mins of street sounds and mix it in back in the hotel room.

via TweetDeck

OK, mobile again. Back to Jalan Alor to see if it’s providing a suitable soundscape to record against.

via TweetDeck

@Wyld I’m staying at the Federal Hotel KL now, and it is truly the full international glory of 1957. There will be photos eventually.

via TweetDeck in reply to Wyld

Tonight I intend to eat in “post-independence Malaya’s first revolving restaurant”, as you do. arseh.at/kvo

via TweetDeck

That’d be the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia, @chriskkenny? iamm.org.my Looks truly gorgeous. That’s Monday sorted, thank you!

via TweetDeck

I see folks have been asking where I am. It says on my Twitter profile and my website, so I’m trying not to repeat it constantly.

via TweetDeck

@veritychambers I may try those markets tomorrow, tho I have a guide tomorrow. Tonight I am tempted to eat somewhere else…

via TweetDeck in reply to veritychambers

Right. I see we’re all constructing our own narrative here…

via TweetDeck

He’s giving me double the size for no extra cost.

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong True, but Jalan Alor is all street food. Once dusk falls it’ll sound like… backpackers, probably. The other sound of Asia.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@AshGhebranious Recording in a toilet lacks a certain… anyway it really isn’t that kind of podcast. Probably.

via TweetDeck in reply to AshGhebranious

Maybe I’ll wait until dusk and try Jalan Alor. I’m not quite finding a distinctive soundscape right now.

via TweetDeck

Finding a spot to record that doesn’t sound like aircon fans, motorcycles, construction work or shit pop music? But that’s the sound of KL.

via TweetDeck

The beer signs, they taunt me.

via TweetDeck

If you were allergic to peanuts you’d be kinda screwed in this city.

via TweetDeck

@PointZeroOne Hah! Canny woman turned on data roaming.

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

@PointZeroOne For sure. Hand them phone, passport and cash, get back configured internets and receipt. Elapsed time 10 mins.

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

@PointZeroOne Thank you. An efficient DiGiLesbian has done everything since my last tweet in the hotel. Total MYR28.50, under AUD10.00.

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

@PointZeroOne Thanks for the tip. The hotel is right next to Plaza Low Yat, so I may pop in there shortly.

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

@PointZeroOne Is that the brand name? Digi? Or am I about to embark upon hours of research when I have little motivation?

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

Also, like yesterday, I’ll be tweeting via SMS to avoid data roaming charges. But that does mean I can’t see you. Is that a benefit?

via TweetDeck

Main podcast interview edited. Scripts for the rest written. I now emerge into the Kuala Lumpur afternoon to feed and record. In that order.

via TweetDeck

It’s just gone midday in Kuala Lumpur. I think I might continue working on the podcast so I can record my links outside somewhere nice.

via TweetDeck

@piawaugh Glad to be of assistance, oh Vector Zero… /cc @SallyRMelb

via TweetDeck in reply to piawaugh

@TheBlueFairy Oh, I just saw my mis-key of the title previously. Unless that was my deliberate misspelling of his deliberate misspelling…

via TweetDeck in reply to InsertInnerGeek

@TheBlueFairy Hmm… I gave up on “Anathem” because it was just too much hard work for a novel, recreation for me. Oh well.

via TweetDeck in reply to InsertInnerGeek

RT @SallyRMelb: great that is trending [Just like herpes, I suppose. Sheer quantity is all that matters now…] /cc @piawaugh

Editing “Patch Monday” podcast with Kaspersky’s Evgeny Aseev @toxzique and Nathan Wang. Cheery stuff on just how good the bad guys are.

via TweetDeck

I suppose I am referring to “Rwamde”, if that’s the new Stephenson title, @caldron_baidu @TheBlueFairy @Stacey0. I may give it a miss.

via TweetDeck

ASIO investigating more “terror threats” than ever? arseh.at/kxl Well I’d hope so! They have more staff than ever.

via TweetDeck

New Neal Stephenson novel? How many kilograms does this one weight? Has he learned not to include every single thought since his last book?

via TweetDeck

Wondering whether I should look for @replies from last night that asked questions, or just let the river flow on. Suspecting I’ll choose B.

via TweetDeck

Sat plan, unordered: Edit “Patch Monday” podcast; a little shopping; a little eating; find someone to put my shoulder back into place.

via TweetDeck

Saturday. Slightly blurry. And I do with that was for self-induced reasons.
