From Cy's brain to yours...

1) Cut population growth in areas which permit only conditions for a poor quality of life, to zero.

2) Abolish all organized religion and other movements based on static beliefs, race, and ethnicity.

3) Encourage the expansion and feasibility of rapid, free trade.

4) Encourage social, racial, and territorial integration...

5) Concentrate more efforts into the advancement of sciences and less into military development.

6*) Attempt to develop ever more accurate cosmological simulations of reality (on computers).

This quote made me laugh...

"It is a bit of a stretch, especially when you're talking about electromagnetic forces travelling from the mobile to the scrotum."

A counter-Radiohead movement would fail because...

...Radiohead itself attempts to make music that doesn't sound like Radiohead, so our efforts to make music that doesn't sound like Radiohead would thwart themselves.

Dumbass Republicans are not going to get the nerd vote

Embattled U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum said America has avoided a second terrorist attack for five years because the “Eye of Mordor” has been drawn to Iraq instead.
Santorum used the analogy from one of his favorite books, J.R.R. Tolkien’s 1950s fantasy classic “Lord of the Rings,” to put an increasingly unpopular war in Iraq into terms any school kid could easily understand.
“As the hobbits are going up Mount Doom, the Eye of Mordor is being drawn somewhere else,” Santorum said, describing the tool the evil Lord Sauron used in search of the magical ring that would consolidate his power over Middle-earth.
“It’s being drawn to Iraq and it’s not being drawn to the U.S.,” Santorum continued. “You know what? I want to keep it on Iraq. I don’t want the Eye to come back here to the United States.”

Recap of some noteworthy television DVD releases of '06

1. Chappelle Show - Lost Episodes

The original "race pixies" sketch was supposed to have a segment with Tiger Woods hitting in a long putt, then Tiger's conscience that sits on his shoulder says, "Stick yo dick in the hole, show 'em what a n---- you really are!" Probably the best sketch is the last, the MTV Cribs Dave Chappelle segment. "This jacket is reversible -- on the outside its endangered cheetah skin, on the inside its bald eagle." "Y'all wanna try out some tyrannosaurus rex egg?" "I grind diamonds on my food, not only cuz its the most baller shit you can do with your food, but because it makes my doody twinkle."

2. Brak Show - Season II

Get it for the rap off contest which Dad wins (with the help of his rapping eyebrows). Unfortunately, it doesn't have the special last episode with all the Adult Swim characters at a party at their house. Space Ghost Zorak gets killed by the Brak Show Zorak, and Carl gets propsitioned by Debbie (of Aqua Teen). "Whip it out, fat stuff!"

3. Curb Your Enthusiasm - Season V

Quite possibly the best fucking sitcom on TV. (thats non-animated) In some ways better than Seinfeld. Nevermind that its on HBO and I don't have that shit. When a show makes you feel embarrassed for the main character, you know it getting to you. Its great watching Larry David fuck up and bumble his way through all these social situations, faux-pauxs, always fighting traditional moires, and watching the intense hatred he always manages to generate towards himself. Even though he's a filthy rich Jew with a hot wife and celebrity friends, it makes you glad you're not that big an asshole.

4. Reno: 911 - Season III

Surpisingly funny, morbid and slightly gay. But who isn't?

5. South Park - The Hits

I didn't buy it cuz I'm gonna buy the individual seasons as they come out, but it does contain the Trapped in the Closet episode, which could quite possibly be the best South Park episode ever. Fuck Tom Cruise. "Now I'm in the closet, now I'm in the closet too..." - R Kelly

Feel free to complete the list. Man, work blows.

Wrath Of FROG

Wrath of FROG:

Wrath of FROG destroys all snakes, lizards, other reptiles, mammals, or any creature attempting to feast on FROG, as well as causing temporary blindess to the enemy duelist, as well as pissing off the populace in general.

Note: Wrath of FROG is ineffective against GodZilla.

"History shows again and again how nature points out the folly of man."
"I love you GodZirra!"

Paging the EffeKTiNatoR

Assuming I know what I'm doing (I don't), I just want to see how Cyrus is faring, what with the earthquake and all today.

You know I'm not dead

I've just been living in my head...

Death of "Vocalists mystical ability"...

If I pitch correct my crappy vocals on a song I produce,
have I, in some sense, 'cheated'? Have I somehow
misreprented may talents in a
way that invalidates my products value?

The physiological benefit that is the golden tongue/larynx
has, over the course of the development of musical
culture, become regarded as some kind of mystica
gift. When we exalt the talents of our favorite vocal
musicians, we in some proportion miscontrue the personal
('musical' is this context) developments of the
individual with the results of uncontrollable
physiological developments whichoccured in
the individualspast. A suped up larynx
contributes exactly as much to an
individuals talents as does the possesion of a
sweet custom Gibson or other well made instrument.

So from this angle we can see that the use of pitch
correction on vocals is no more objectionable
than the selection of a fine guitar for a track, or
using some well programmed plugin to compress to
perfection. The basic fact underlying this symmetry
is that the sole contributing factor by which our
musical products have value is 'creative infusion
by intrepretting subjects'. Its the patterns in the
choices of notes in times at different pitchs,
settings on the effects, etc., that the musician
makes that infuses the art product with its value.

So go mess up some vocal tracks.

This Fresh Post...

...will take list form.

1) I'm sick of this 'world-of-irrational-terrorists' scenario that the media keeps stuffing down our throats. Shouldn't the public education system of this country ensure that our citizens are wary of such ridiculous demonization schemes?

2) Josh is getting married to Sarah, which means now I'm one friend closer to being lonely for life.

3) I'm still fascinated by self-refering things, like this sentence.

4) I'm still not loving police, except the ones in Santa Barbara because they've always been cool, because my friends and I are white and harmless and they know it.

5) I'm up 4B.

6) Skiied almost none in 2 weeks. ;(

7) I'm come to the conclusion that I suck at keyboards and need to focus on guitar, even though I really want to utilize Ableton Live. Maybe I can put together some MIDI guitar rig and control things thusly.
