(best question ever, tunesy :), hard to do it justice)

bells
trains
waves lapping
a key turning in a lock
thelonius-y/coltrane-y/miles-y/mingus-y sounds
a nudibranch sighing contentedly after consuming a meal of bluebottle jellyfish tentacles

T.I.P. 01-07-2008 08:12 PM

truck honking far away in the night
rhythmic crickets
clicks and cuts
50 hertz bass drones
tibetan bowls
cat meowling to say hello

craig johnston 01-07-2008 08:16 PM

the sound of a pin dropping in space when there's no one
around to hear it and so on.......

ooh, and a tiny baby kitten's heartbeat

and something else, very tingly and sweet and slightly esoteric.

and the kop singing 'you'll never walk alone'

I don't think Craig Johnston is taking this thread seriously.

auntie aubrey 01-07-2008 10:06 PM

the best sound in the entire world: the sound of feet.

the clip-clop of shoes on pavement. the click-click of dressy heels on linoleum. the slappy-pat of bare feet on hardwood floors. the soft thumpity thump of running in cushy socks. back in the late 90s fell in love with the video game "crash bandicoot" based solely on their attentiveness to feet noises. miyazaki films have great feet noises.

in college i used to go out at night with a small tape recorder at my side, recording my own feet noises. sometimes they're the same from night to night. sometimes for unknown reasons they change. it's an ever-presence, and your perspective on it never changes. you can never walk away from your feet noises. they're as ever-present as the sound of your own breath.



(i tried to explain this to the spouse very early in our relationship. his response was, "you're going to have to marry me." now i love feet noises even more.)

Tunesmith 01-08-2008 01:28 AM

^ gave me a happy, auntie. I'll have to listen for them in Spirited Away next time I watch it :D

camera shutters opening
the crunch of boots on freshly fallen snow
hearing your heartbeat in a pillow
the soft whushing of someone sleeping's breath
the pings and pongs of table tennis
the scratch of fine-tipped pens on paper
a whispered conversation through a wall
distant wind
the momentary silence after an amazing performance (well, that's lack of sound)

question for Wednesday, January 9, 2008:

How would you define your relationship to clothing?

Stephi_B 01-09-2008 01:28 PM

Well, I wear them, wash them, let them dry, wear them, and so on...

For a woman, quite a loose relationship I guess: clothes should look halfways good on me, be affordable, easy to wash, should not necessarily have to be ironed and should not dare to hide much longer than 20 minutes from me when I search them in a store.

Coffee 01-09-2008 01:43 PM

They are so many times removed, I don't feel relationship to them any more.

lukkucairi 01-09-2008 02:33 PM

^*claps*

utilitarian, occasionally eccentric.

zero 01-09-2008 02:56 PM

crucial

auntie aubrey 01-09-2008 09:23 PM

it's a tense, accusatory relationship. like an unhappy married couple who have grown to hate each other over the years but are too accustomed to depending on that hatred to actually part ways.

about to go from a "casual" to a "business casual" relationship with them

Angry Kid Hoyt 01-10-2008 01:36 PM

New Day....
 
What is your most embarrassing moment?

Stephi_B 01-10-2008 02:05 PM

Committing stupidities (usually but not exclusively with someone of the male gender involved) under alcohol influence and remembering everything crystal clear later on (usually the case, damn brain).
I don't care actually if/how much the other party remembers, my embarrassment towards myself (can one say that so?) is the worst embarrassment for me.

lukkucairi 01-10-2008 10:28 PM

7 yrs old, caught stealing two uninflated balloons from the coffee table at karen white's 7th birthday party.

auntie aubrey 01-11-2008 12:48 AM

in short, it involved a phone call and a casual question left on an answering machine that came out all wrong, and in the process of correcting myself i found myself helplessly babbling as i descended rapidly into something between apologizing and groveling. and there was a witness on my end who quite clearly was beyond baffled by my actions.

it was a "let's never speak of this again" moment.

it might not sound bad, but it was bad enough to top my list. that's how bad it was.

madasacutsnake 01-11-2008 08:27 AM

So hard to pick just one............

Stephi_B 01-11-2008 10:18 AM
