Some more In Rainbows talk

Its pretty good, I'm still getting into it but listening to it pretty much daily.

a few faves:

-15 Step is a funky, signature "5/4"-signature track, which gets my signature of approval

-Weird Fishes, probably tied with All I Need as my favorite tracks, I love the density and multilayering of each track, especially the big, heavenly build at the end of All I Need

-Jigsaw Falling Into Place is great, sounds like the soundtrack to a pensive quest of sorts, also a great buildup and interesting chord developments/unfoldings

-Videotape is also excellent, kind of haunting & somber yet engaging in the way only Thom Yorke can make it, if I had a soul it'd be touched by it.

not so faves:

-Bodysnatchers reminds me hella of Cuttooth...
-Nude reminds me of Don't Get Any Big Ideas!
-Faust Arp... House of Cards would be more interesting if I knew how they created some of those sounds...

alright well that took a good half hour, now i gotta find shit to do for only 1 more hour and i'm on my way home.

When you're pushed, killing's as easy as breathing.

My Encounter with the Beast from the Sea


This guy doesn't look very big in this picture, but is probably 6 feet long and weighs about 5-600 lbs. He was just chillin as me & my crew were taking pictures of him, but then all the sudden he got up and started barking like a motherfucker. Our humanoid scents must have pissed him off, because he then lunged for us, and I barely escaped the grasp of his powerful jaws (not really, they actually only move about 1 mph on rocks, and I was about 8 feet away). But it was kinda scary for a few seconds when he was charging at us, galumphing his oafish, shiny mass at us in a hateful manner.

We saw this sign on the way out:

Then, having lived to go home and write a blog about it, I did.

(if you are bored and so inclined, here are a few more pictures from the journey... i'll probably put up more Hawaii pics in the future, as i figure out how to use my digital camera better)

Blog Mulching experiment 1B...

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

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?

I will test your motherfuckin theory so hard its motherfuckin ass turns red.

What about the urges for interstellar exploration that spontaneously erupt during the dotted, intertwining polyphonic melodies of the Grateful Dead or Pink Floyd?

Reggae: ....thats just country for stoners...

This mother forced her baby to take mad hits of the bizong, so that the child would become more mellow and docile.

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.

...the sole contributing factor by which our
musical products have value is 'creative infusion
by intrepretting subjects'.

How did I resist the call of Taco Bell on the way home from the library this evening?
Why are we still in Iraq?

Darth Maul was not played by an actor, but was rather an actual demon that was possessing Rick McCallum’s waffle iron.

The majority of our work together will consist in furious and meticulous recreations of Paco De Lucia guitar solos from which we will extract nuggets of tonal expression which will later be reimplemented/arranged as a suite of extended non-diatonic 'tone poems'.

Donovan NcNabb took to one final drag from his cock-shaped crack pipe before falling into bed.

Best Muse song?
I say "Knights of Cydonia" because when I'm at the gym and the burn is real cavernous and domestic, and I feel like giving into the hatred of the terrorist, thus letting the terrorist win, that glorious epic comes on and gives me six more minutes on the treadmill, thus lessening the impact on my liver and lungs from all the dirty fucking filth I put in there.

Some nostalgia...

...for all the lovers of early 90's emo/melodic hardcore or something. (Hum, 'Pod')

Damn, that place is going off!

Van Halen goes experimental, attempts to blaze new trails with microtonal cock rock...

Well, not really. At a recent performance in New York, the mega group finished their set on a rather experiemental note when the the keyboard backing tracks for their finale, 'Jump', played back at the wrong sampling rate. The result, 3 minutes of atonal bliss. Note how Eddie tries to transpose his part in real time. Unfortunately, the keyboards are playing back at 48khz when they should be playing at 44.1khz, so there is no way to compensate on guitar; the keyboards are 1.5 half-steps sharp. Lol.

New blood.

What do you guys think about inviting more folk to enhance the girth and potency of Cleansmanship? Murph/Zell/Gorm maybe? (..hehe..)

I bet one of you guys knows...

how to take down a online forum. It's a rather unsecure one as well. Let's do this.

Cody's Newspaper (Approx. Age 6)

Apparently, when I was a youngling, I would create fictional news stories then print them out and put them on people's doorsteps. I chose to show this one because it's remarkably like something I would write today.

The extreme heat of the heat blast will destroy dogs and cats and people.

That is a disaster.

We think strange things called muscles were made by the gun.

Please could you stop that noise I'm trying to listen to In Rainbows

How come I end up where I started
How come I end up where I belong
Won't take my eyes off the ball again
You reel me out the you cut the string

How come I end up where I started
How come I end up where I belong
Won't take my eyes off the ball again
You reel me out the you cut the string

You used to be alright
What happened?
Did the cat get your tongue
Did your string come undone
One by one
One by one
It comes to us all
It's as soft as your pillow

You used to be alright
What happened?
Etcetera etcetera
Facts for whatever
Fifteen steps
Then a shear drop

Top ten unexplained phenomena...

Got this from According to the article, the Taos Hum is the number 1 most unexplained phenomenon, right after bigfoot (italics are mine).

The Taos Hum
Some residents and visitors in the small city of Taos, New Mexico, have for years been annoyed and puzzled by a mysterious and faint low-frequency hum in the desert air. Oddly, only about 2 percent of Taos residents report hearing the sound. Some believe it is caused by unusual acoustics; others suspect mass hysteria or some secret, sinister purpose. Whether described as a whir, hum, or buzz and whether psychological, natural, or supernatural no one has yet been able to locate the sound's origin.

Only 2 percent of the population hear it and yet its the #1 unexplained phenomenon!!?? WTF!! Of the ten, only the 'mind/body connection' and 'UFO' phenomenon are really significant, but what about the cattle mutilations? Why arent they on the list? They actually provide documentable evidence to be investigated! I hate this godamn popular pseudoscience crap.

Here are some phenomenon that actually are significant and unexplained:

1) Observed gravitational effects which we attempt to account for with 'dark matter' theories, which may be the wrong approach, btw.

2) Quantum computations (must parallel universes factor into the explaination?).

3) The material transformation of the earths surface into cities, roads, power and communication infrastructure, buildings, particle accelerators, cars, furniture, computers, sex toys, and anything else you can think of that humans create. Few try to explain this, because it is so easily taken for granted. But of course I try, and you probably know that I would tell you that it leads us right into transhumanism.

Here's a quantum computer. This should make you feel better.
