Ah, this is so cool! Back to popculture as a frame of reference,
releasing early and often and bouncing ideas back&forth... and even a
whole series of new words! It's just like the old days, except with
more toys.

I like the idea of resurrecting/-mixing/-releasing the Audicle. I
admit I was a bit skeptical of it at the time (I think I mucked up
something with the 3d acceleration). It was a bit ahead of its time
and now might be a good moment to go back. More or less like that XBox
version of Rez.

Welcome back, commander.
