Some so-bad-it's-good-ism:

e.g. "'Twas warm, the air redolent of the sweet leavings of the horses." and much more from here.

"Dana violently fights Mark using kick boxing and Hapkido! She punches Mark! She throws several straight blows to his face again! She elbows Mark! She kung fu's Mark! She knees Mark! She knees him real hard again and again in the groin area!" from here.

"her neck was a bottle of wine covered in dew and otters" from here.

More of that last one can be found here. Best read in Stephen Fry's voice. "Language is a complimentary moist lemon-scented cleansing square or handy freshen-up wipette. Language is the breath of God. Language is the dew on a fresh apple, it's the soft rain of dust that falls into a shaft of morning light as you pluck from a old bookshelf a half-forgotten book of erotic memoirs..."

Stereo Bandpass-filter experiment. Code is this:
({ 
 var left = BPF.ar(BrownNoise.ar([0.1, 0.1]), 
  MouseX.kr(40, 17000, [1,0]),  MouseY.kr(0.1, 1.0, 0));
var right = BPF.ar(BrownNoise.ar([0.1, 0.1]), 
  MouseX.kr(40, 17000, [0,1]),  MouseY.kr(0.1, 1.0, 0));
var x = SinOsc.ar(0.1,0, 0.5,0.5);
(x * left) + ((1-x) * right);
}.play;)

It won't be at all interesting without headphones probably. The funny thing is it makes me feel like one ear (and then the other, as the 0.1Hz oscillator wobbles around) is plugged-up or has gone deaf in a more forceful way than if I just failed to play sound through that channel. Not sure what's causing that.

For future self-reference, here is the magic incantation I need to get java GUI working within sc on linux:
 GUI.swing;
 SwingOSC.java = "/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/bin/java";
 SwingOSC.program = "/usr/bin/SwingOSC.jar";
 SwingOSC.default.boot;
