OBAMA TAX CUTS!

obama is like, "this big government thing is going down, we need as much wealth in the hands of promising americans as possible to spur an era of entrepreneurship and innovation ~ away from those who have a legal claim on public institutions. this time, we will be bulletproof." as the US becomes more isolated, inorder to have any sway - services in the stars and stripes will have to be extreme leet and above anyone else in the world. do what japan failed to accomplish, and build a monopoly on Quality, Innovation, and the american dream. Kudos!

A Live Review of My Dark Twisted Fantasy

Okay, well this thing just rolled in through the door and I knew was due out about now, but the I didn't know it was going to be around now...I mean, Kanye can't do it now after such the long delay and then apologize to Bush. Look, the way I look at it, Kanye said that so that it would be a long time until people would hear that again. But that was just fallout; the real deal was that Kanye was being true to himself, and spoke to allot of people who thought the same thing. Well, if it were an act of G*d - that would be a very traumatizing experience.

Okay, well here it is - A Live Review...

The album starts with something Kanye is well know for, appreciated dearly by his fans from early albums. Soul Full lyrics of a church chior....
"CAN WE GET MUCH HIIIGHER???
.....(so highhhh) 
oh OH OH oh OH"

Ehm, the second track is what it sounds like when Kanye writes the chorus, gets Kid Cudi to sing it, and then raps the first verse.

OK. i listened to it. 5/10.

I predicted this on my birthday - UPM (ubiquitous payment method)

My buddy buddy Eric Schimdt spoke recently about the android system looking towards including "personal and secure" technologies in a recent web2.0 talk. It's called an NFC chip. Lenovo, a Chinese company (the country that hacked Google's network awhile back, have recently started doing this.

So, ladies and gentlemen - introducing... YOUR MICROCHIP!

Look at this tech! It's prehistoric!

Is Qantas built on Controversum Antasi? There's Kangaroo Blood in the water...

I would never implicate Qantas Airlines in the incident that occurred on the 4th of November 2010. Nope. And they themselves have made it very clear, as have Airbus: the engines are from Rolls-Royce, Rolls-Royce is responsible... I will remind myself of this should I cut my chin with a Gillette razor the next time! Hardly comparable, but if my girlfriend* cuts her smooth sexy skin with my razor, who do I blame? Upon making the buying decision, I chose the razor [I've shaved with a pink razor in the past - the disparities in function and performance are negligible]. 

I'm going to dichotomize the Real World (sun->plant->bunny-->popo->lion->popo->smelly popo->plant) from the Business World. In the Real World, we are all actors -we interact, there are results, and according to diversification in nature, some benefit and others do not. In the Business World, we have defined consumers, we have hopefully non-perfect providers/suppliers who bargain less effectively than we/I, and we have our body corporate. The we, I and Body Corporate want to make sure that we can feed the pig consumers without having to actually "put our arms down" the hog's "treacherous" throat.

No matter what you think you are, if you define reality as a struggle for profits instead of a reality without efficiency, then you are the I. You are with me or against me, and if you really wish be on top, some good advice would be to join or form a Body Corporate.

I know little about the flight industry (actually I know plenty, but I want to assert my journalistic ability to be objectionable here), but I think that Qantas is pursuing invisible profits out there in the cosmos...

One issue occurred in 2005 regarding Qantas Airlines where they were found guilty of fixing cargo prices in Canada. How does one distort cargo surcharges? Who cares. They took the pig for a walk.

A Qantas A380's engine experiences a 'hiccup': it bursts into flames mid-flight, raining debris somewhere over a country with a population density more than twice as high as the global average (Indonesia has a pd of 122 per sqrkm, where the Global average is 51). Cue the Industry Congo Line of Denial!

First up: Qantas!
The engine blew up, not the cabin crew - blame Rolls-Royce! (and throw another shrimp on the bar-bee)

Second: Airbus
We have deployed crews around the world to deal with the data we have from Rolls-Royce, the real culprits. The crews will perform an 8 point additional pre-flight check: the 8 points being the suspected 8 different failures that could have lead to the IN-FLIGHT CRITICAL FAILURE of the Rolls-Royce Engine. But let's face it, if these things want to fall out of the sky, then the exhaustive and redundant 211-step pre-flight engine checks are not going to stop that. Yet we remain committed to the pig... eh... Industry, and dominating people's perception of a "value added service"-tag by producing these barely financially viable things of engineering beauty!

Bonus! Singapore Airlines
Qantas, you beat us to the first A380, and since you didn't give us the 优惠 we believe we deserve from pro-industry growth packages - we're parking our A380s and stopping some orders. You have assets we will buy. When the price is right.

END-GAME! Rolls-Royce
Our customers are both Boeing and Airbus (we make two engines for them on the same production line... it's not like they're going to stop building the planes). We are working on the issue, but are completely confident in out Trent product line (we just signed a billion dollar deal with China for services and to exchange technologies and personnel. And we don't care about you).

So, everyone wins except for Qantas... coupled with their cargo price-fixing fines, they've taken heavy losses. Good thing the Australian public is so forgiving.

China is a building a huge Airline Construction Industry. Want to know what their superjumbo will look like? Click here

I have a dream...a Ubiquitous Payment Method (or UPM)

Some reports say that sub-Saharan Africa has 8million people using mobile-phones for their banking. blah blah blah blah.... a ubiquitous payment method is a mobile phone {fill with tech futuro stuff}.

Terry Jones - "let's get buck wild!"

This entire issue could easily have been averted if the media acted...

Morally. But because they are profit seeking, sales orientated, bound to advertiser's expectations - they do not. They put the crazy man on the TV and asked him questions. Russia Today did a great expo on it: Hilary Clinton is on screen saying "it's regret that pastor with a congregation of no more than 50...can make this outrageous...plan and get the world's attention...," her retort continues but is dubbed over images of anti-Islam demonstrations around Groud Zero and the planned Islamic Community Centre [posters saying NO CLUBHOUSE FOR TERRORISTS...ISLAM IS AN IDEOLOGY; A FALSE RELIGION OF HATE AND INTOLERANCE] as she states "it doesn't in anyway represent America or Americans... and we're hoping that the pastor decides not to do this...um...we're hoping against hope that if he does, it won't be covered...as a act of patriotism." Now, she does criticizes the media - yes. But she could have been more earnest about it, not that it would have eased tensions with Islam - but it would have made a few Americans think about the potency of their media.

14 Days without Broadband internet... What have I missed?

The damage from the Externality...
  • 14 Hours of lectures, including 9 TEDtalks,
  • Millions of hours of Starcraft 2 stuff (i just like watching the videos!),
  • Researching and reading up on Lithium (it's trending in my imaginary circle of friends who know shit)
  • "Hitler's Downfall"-parodies.
  • New Google App+tech
  • Alexandra Schwartz's AtGoogle talk
Ed Ruscha's Pontiac Catalinas, 1984
Stuff i've done without broadband internet...
  • Read some Sartre and Plutarch (about 20pages total out a possible 1000)
  • Went to a Beauty Pageant - a friend won Miss Personality
  • Spent time with the mom
  • Argued with the dad and set up his Gmail (he still speaks latin!)
  • Got new glasses (and scammed my medical aid. ACE!)
  • Got my Nanny new specs
  • Been sad
  • Recovered from being sad by simply ignored the cause
  • Thought about the past and how it doesnt matter
  • Thought about the future and wondered if it mattered
  • Ate fruit from a tree
  • Considered going outside to harass the tortoises after their winter hibernation
  • Became sick of Sports and Sports people (money corrupts, absolutely)
  • Thought about movies i've always wanted to see only to flick the channel and see that they've just started (3 occasions!)
  • Been disgusted at the price of internet in my country... uncapped broadband for U$137 per monf. price per Mb - 28c (US)... filling a 100gig harddrive would cost you U$28,678.  Or rather (to accommadate a the uncapped "bonus" option), inorder for a community to access and process a single Gig of internet media will cost them U$287. where's the humanity or are we all money greedy filthy pigs?


    the internet is too expensive and slow for me

Google...er...Internet shortfall - disappointing men everywhere...

i need to be ready to have sex now but i just had sex - http://goo.gl/GQjm



I think this is a vital vital vital vital piece of information that i missing from the internet. i'm not looking for a pill, maybe something homeopathic...all i need is advice. and if you've sought for advice regarding this particular issue, then you simply get confronted with these results. without getting pissed off at it, my statement regarding this is - it's bullshit! why even bother creating the internet if we are not answering questions like this? is there a decline in the aggregate amount of honesty on the internet? is the emergence of accountablility as a result of facebook, linkedin (pronounced as lin-ke-din, btw) et al preventing people from solving life problems? i don't want to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but is this rear guard action by organised religions to protect the concept of G*d?

This is Great - exactly what i need to take my mind off things...

I will post the actually graph, analysis (haha) at a later stage... [[update: posted! click the link below, or check out the picture below to preview]]

any suggestion on how to further tweak the query terms (hahaha) welcome for the release of a v2.0. this is version 1.3.
v0.2-v1.3: http://goo.gl/T5DC
what is google trends?
if you're going research on trends, a great way is look at the google search history of related terms. the history goes all the way back to mid-2005 (thank page and brin for encroaching on your privacy). 

so, from the trends we can approximate that... well, i don know - just trying to interpret the data is fun.

click the link in the title for the full graph - here is a discrete prtsc shot.

teaser: tagalog is a phillipino language, and they seem to be the world leaders in "in my face"-category.

we are progammed by our parents.


life is ridiculous.

religions failed when they let people live together with other people. so they might have to go. and i'm pretty sure that everyone is cool that if there is a god there, then he can stay.

A Revision: http://goo.gl/2COy

So i found this article by this dude who seems to be a graphic-designer cum creative director in the fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) market, and he wrote this article below about...the title should be, "Despair". it was featured on Adbusters.org, 8 march 2010. I commented underneath as Le Choc; french, (ergo really classy)

[[this is me]]

"Design is increasingly defined commercially. Not just because the most creative minds of our generation are devoting their talents to shifting consumer goods from shelves but in the very way we design.[[i disagree, the most creative talents are devoting themselves to business that bares little fruit for society]] We are led to believe that we simply cannot design without the latest proprietary software, which is packaged and marketed with brand identities more closely aligned with religious visions or Platonic ideals than with the properties it possesses.[[ i disagree again - products should be romantic and cultivate a truly deep relationship with its consumer. everything else is waste, ala excess]] The filters and tools of the dominant software have seemingly eclipsed ideas, creative visions, radically simple aesthetics and spontaneous, free, entirely original visual concepts. Keyboards and shortcuts have replaced the mind and soul of the designer. Without the latest software, expensive versions of which are released at regular intervals, we would not be able to design. Without the plug-ins, updates and add-ons, we would be left behind. [[ reflects a view that design is simply a fulfillment of a need, notwithstanding it should also be the creation of a new experience entirely]]

We’ve become so addicted to the agility and speed that these ever-improving tools have given us that – like a juiced-up athlete – we’ve lost our confidence.[[this is the despair. recognise it. keep it away from your mirror image]] We’ve forgotten who we are and what we used to achieve without half the aid we now rely on.

It’s not just the content we’re designing: many of us know deep down that we are part of the problem, the fuel in the engine of consumer capitalism. It’s the way we now design that traps us. [[this is called evil, stop contributing to aggregate evil]]

I understand despair. many comment-makers do not recognize it. it feels like you have nothing, and there is no reason to do anything except light a cigarette, running screaming naked in the street, looking for an apt place to kill yourself. the statement above reminds me that i seek death by cop. all these closed briefs, cubicle and terminal environments in multi-nationals to fullfil a work-role in the roll - of course this causes despair.
build wings out of post-its and office supplies, break the window with an ergo-chair, and leave your work! be free, drunk, and poor; alone with your ideas...

tree-hugger horseraddish

so i'm always finding more 'data'* about climate change. all these theorems that anit-hypothesize what the prof with a different grant is hypothesizing at the same conference.

so, one thing that fence sitters all know, and i'm not a fence sitter, i that the only fact about climate change is that noone agrees about anything.

|* I call it data, cos upon discovery, i really don't know what to make of it - and i'm not talking about a chinese dish|

i, myself even, am about to pull the white picket out of my ass and present my OWN theory. tonight has been the closest i've come. and for someone like me, i'm pretty dam sure it states exactly what is happening - i always thought that people waste their time hypothesizing, and that they should be like me create the strongest argument and then tell them to F*ck off. and they will have to, if they really want to disprove anything that I say, yet what normally follows is a career change.

... had this friend of mine with a masters in IT ask "what is Cloud computing???". what the cheese, man?

anyway, theory is solid. but if those nasa bastards are holding out on me, then that's the one out of 332 sources that'll sink me (provided i have not already correctly anticipated the nature of their agenda. which is not likely.)

but am i going to publish it on my blog? i don't know. if i have to do too much research, then no. but if its shallow and easy to understand, i will start a cult. there will be T-shirts, caps, parties (kegs!), i want a nike sponorship! Probably get wes anderson to direct the movie!

ALBUM REVIEWS: what is music???

what is music? what does it consist of? give me a finite list of flavours. google has a solution, but the solution lies on a black and white university webpage... http://goo.gl/vBey (don't bother clicking on it). and it goes like this, so i changed it...

"Genres and Types of Music:"





  • 20th-Century music - what is this? REMOVE!
  • Ambient/Digital music - they mean, ELECTRO
  • Ancient music - benhur? REMOVE  
  • Band music (including marching bands) - nick cannon? REMOVE
  • Barbershop music - FOLK
  • Baroque music - thats not how you spell BarackCLASSICAL
  • Bluegrass - it says grass, but it's not Hendrix. FOLK
  • Blues - this might be ignorance, but i can only imagine anyone arguing unto an extent where they end up sounding completely corny. FOLK
  • Chamber music - CLASSICAL
  • Children's Music - REMOVE - i just don't care.
  • Choral music - REMOVE - i just don't care.
  • Country music - FOLK
  • Dance music - ELECTRO
  • Early music - no no no. 
  • Electronic music - ELECTRO
  • Ethnic and national music - nope.
  • Film Music - jc...
  • Flamenco - i will dance to it, but starting a collection... sorry. LATIN
  • Folk music - FOLK
  • Improvisation - FOLK
  • Jazz - FOLK
  • Opera, Opera Companies, and Musical Theatre - CLASSICAL
  • Orchestral music - CLASSICAL
  • Ragtime - post sad sex music? REMOVE
  • Rap/Hip hop - HIPHOP
  • Reggae/Ska - genius! but they must be separated REGGAE and SKA
  • Religious music - ...REGGAE
  • Rock/Pop/Alternative, etc. and Music Charts - blatant disregard for music in a modern, complex world - divided into ROCK, OLD SCHOOL POP and CONTEMPORARY POP
  • Seasonal and Wedding music - REMOVE
  • Tango - LATIN
  • Women composers and women's music - ...? i think thats included above...
  • DUB
  • R&B
So, according to the above definitions - 50 randomly chosen (this is a lie) albums give me this profile of genre-specific musical interests...

Someone was in my abode the other day and asked me, "how many albums do you have altogether?" more than 460**. The above is a fair representation of the total population. 


** just short of a 9m high stack of standard CD cases.

ALBUM REVIEWS: My threat...

methodological outline for the dissemination of an opinion regarding musical works

Ok, well i listen to at least 2 albums a week. my life is good! my spectrum of music is ridiculous!

but thats by your standards - cos you put things in a box. IDIOT! been awhile since i found something that i could past a label on without twitching. genres should be loosely applied. but if an artist perfectly applies his or her shelf to a poppy-trend thing, they will get props.

albums will be the muchness, with mixes from the bester lesser circulating scenes being ok'd by my subconscious for review.

i've got a ridiculous fixation on listening to albums. if i could bring myself to dish out a 5.5. out of 10*, i probably will listen to the discography and do all the reading i can.

i hate it when people say "uh...and i like music". everyone likes music...you jackass.



FIRST ENTRY

Wow, blogging...the power. friggin awesome. if you have found this blog, then you need to ask yourself 'why?' maybe it was that split second that you stopped to think whether you forgot something somewhere, or when you stopped to see 'is that her?'... all these occurences, even if they happened days ago - have led you here.

how does that seat feel? does it feel deeper? maybe you should go outside...

i'm probably going to say now that i will blog everyday. the truth... well, i don't know the truth. i suggest you rely on your finite/infinite wisdom to guide you.
