Me, my death, first post in a year [11 Nov 2004|02:50am]
I exported my LJ archives to a PDF. I had been reading some of my later entries, 2003, mostly. They were colder, mostly esoteric links and quotes, party invitations and the sort. The older stuff is better. I vaguely remember writing about my death, in any case, one shouldn't do so as it seems overly poignant two years later. Not that this would mean much to any of you, if there are any of you left, as the poignancy is rooted in that I know the author, and it's me, nevermind the numerous spelling errors.

I like to sleep in my office (which is in my apartment) because it has a bunch of windows. I feel like I'm in a city. I'd be crazy to leave here, I just need some drama.
(Seriously, you can't make this shit up.)

Music is a world within itself
With a language we all understand
With an equal opportunity
For all to sing, dance and clap their hands
But just because a record has a groove
Don't make it in the groove
But you can tell right away at letter A
When the people start to move

They can feel it all over
They can feel it all over people
They can feel it all over
They can feel it all over people

Music knows it is and always will
Be one of the things that life just won't quit
But here are some of music's pioneers
That time will not allow us to forget
For there's Basie, Miller, Sachimo
And the king of all Sir Duke
And with a voice like Ella's ringing out
There's no way the band can lose

You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people
You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people

You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people
You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people

You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people
You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people

You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people
You can feel it all over
I can feel it all over-all over now people

Can't you feel it all over
Come on let's feel it all over people
You can feel it all over
Everybody-all over people

...

My life is never ending.

Holy crap I was drunk last night; I don't particularly remember composing my last post. I think we were getting some interested looks last night at Liquids. It's a little b&t but goddamn it's fun. Maybe I'll recap later on.

Now that I have the business taken care of, I want to note that Kendra is hot, according to her Friendster. Yes you. No one called me that I wanted to call me tonight, but I did fall down and laugh with Cliona who is probably as strange as I am. My alligator cowboy boots are uncomfortable and my big painting isn't done. (how's that for an update...)

I was once asked which was better, Rufus Wainwright's or Jeff Buckley's version of "Hallelujah."

In my mind there is no doubt Jeff Buckley wins this contest.

Ha I Hate This [13 Feb 2003|12:12am]
"So, the story goes that co-worker A got sick of co-worker B's constant profanity whilst playing Counter Strike. Co-worker A then hid a microphone next to co-worker B's desk, and captured this stream of rantings. Then, as co-worker A was a member of an electronic music-making concern, he endeavored to edit it all together. The end result was this: The Terrible Mr. G."

Very interesting reading from Salam Pax from inside Iraq. Well supposedly.

I just realized something; using an underscore for a permanent link doesn't make much sense because people unfamiliar with the site don't realize that's what it is.

Racial Slur On National Television Alert [10 Feb 2003|03:23pm]
"But I'll tell you what. I've talked to the commanders, and they tell me, 'Look, you deploy us down there, we stop the drug traffic dead'

We'd save lives because Mexican wetbacks, whatever you want to call them, the coyotes -- they're not going to do what they're doing now, so people aren't going to die in the desert."

- BILL O'REILLY

transcript of the show

It is not acceptable to use a racial slur on national television. I encourage you to follow Mark Kraft's lead and notify pertinent parties about the issue. (link mails to comments@foxnews.com , investor@newscorp.com , mueller@newscorp.com , oreilly@foxnews.com)

This May Have Been a Mistake [10 Feb 2003|12:06am]
I changed the influence ranking on Memeufacture significantly, the system now measures the popularity of the eight most recent first mentions of a particular site. This discriminates against particularly prolific link posters, but also removes the noise favoring them; I think the two cancel out. In any case the results are without doubt more accurate albeit not as favorable to the "big" sites.

[UPDATE]

Perhaps not at all surprising, it turns out the "big" sites continue to dominate in influence after the change, and that prolific writers are more likely to catch interesting things ealier on. At least we know that for sure now.
