What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

All Our Actions Are Constantly Repeated / Mandelbrot Set
I can't resist a good mathematical joke, which may be because it's so rare that I encounter one. In case you didn't know, the Mandelbrot set is a simple mathematical formula that somehow produces pictures of startling complexity and beauty, the creation of mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot. Whose name translates as almond bread, which I know is irrelevant but which I still think is pretty amusing.

I've spend more than my share of time and energy writing programs to generate Mandelbrot images, as well as enjoying those produced by others. It's the repeating but never quite identical nature of the Mandelbrot set that makes it so addictive. And so it is with this Mandelbrot Set, which, if not quite so endlessly fascinating as their namesake, do manage to produce mathematically intriguing textures. Benoit might enjoy the comparison.
