Anonymous Instant Photophone Moblogging

By way of Boing Boing I came across this site to post your phone cam pics. It can be anonymous but as you can see I've forgone that bit of it. There's some boring pics there and some cool ones. Don't expect anything too spectacular, after all it's just a phone cam. All my pics are HERE. Any cool one's I'll actually post them my blog, but most of them will be on Mobog.


The New Mutant Race Has Begun

Found this through Tribes:
Don't be fooled by the corporations that advertise evolution. "The new breed" is not related to cars, nor is it related to cell phones. Evolution has nothing to do with consuming the latest technological gadgets. Fuck "futuristic movies" like The Matrix. The cyber fringe came up with that shit decades ago- Hollywood has commodified our ideas and sold them to the masses. Fuck the 60's. Fuck the hipsters and occultists who exclusify information. Fuck your obscure record collections. Fuck your goth clubs and your art groups. Activate total information warfare.

Interesting. They need some actual information though, not just propaganda. I'll keep a watch on it.


well that's stupid. i'm using wap blogger to post this and they have a limit on #of characters you can post. oh well. anyone know a better method of doing this?


ICP Fucks George Bush

UPDATE: Download removed so as not to go over limit on server. You should be able to find it on P2P networks.

Life would be so much easier if they just gave you a list of what to buy them. Maybe if they put it on a website that let you order it directly. Oh my god, what a novel idea. Maybe they could call it a wishlist as well. Wow. If only...


Closet Rivethead

I think I'm a closet Rivethead. At least when it comes to the bedroom I am. For a very long time I've wanted to decorate my room like a vampire lair. Dark, metal, concrete, black light, etc. Electric Metal describes it perfectly in step 1 of How To Be Industrial: A Rivethead's Guide:
[Industrialise your bedroom]

* Permissible colours: black. A hint of dark grey is also acceptable. Rust brown may also be acceptable in some circumstances (i.e. in rust).

* Basic materials: metal, concrete.

* Furniture: minimalist, metal, uncomfortable, preferably built from girders or scrap metal. Your shelves could also be held up with breezeblocks.

* Ornaments/decoration: spiky things, rusty chains, tools/powertools, chainsaws, metal cables, barbed wire, computer cables, electrical tape, gas masks, skulls/skeletons, also (obviously) huge posters of industrial bands or films.

* Vital items: technology is the key word here. Therefore you must have: stereo (with huge speakers - let the world share your love of industrial and noise, and make sure they can not just hear it but feel it as well); TV; DVD player; VCR; computer; anything else you can lay your hands on with buttons, dials, levers, flashing lights, etc on it. It doesn't have to do anything, just be stacked up looking scary and technological and overwhelming to any non-rivethead who dares enter into your domain. Also required is a large stack of industrial CDs (vinyl is so outdated darling), DVDs, videos, dystopian fiction, etc.

* Floor coverings: carpet is a big no-no. Only metal flooring is acceptable.

Step 2: Pets for Rivetheads seems to fit as well. Interesting...


Check out the trailer for Girl with a Pearl Earring. It looks like it will be a another great movie with Scarlett Johansson. That photo is from the Esquire UK magazine which I found here.

From Esquire UK Interview:

You only make sense of it when you understand that every major feature is gorgeously out of proportion. The eyes are pools, clear, blue and alert. The nose is an unsculpted lump of clay that is not in the least pretty. The lips are just pure and simple indecent. They are so full and succulent that they could drip. In a shameless exploitation of her finest asset, Scarlett smokes Capris, the worlds slimmest cigarette. As she inhales, the stick looks like a lollipop in a giants mouth.

Dark Side of the Moon

I just got through watching a really great movie. Love The Hard Way with Adrien Brody, is a movie that never got the recognition it deserved, even after Brody won his Oscar. I enjoyed everything about it. It's one of those movies that has the tendency to pull my strings. The emotions expressed on screen resonate with the emotions within me. They're not the exact same, but they are parallel to each other.

It reminded me of feelings I had awhile ago. Feelings of blaming myself for someone else's problems. Of being scared of what the outcome would be if I wasn't there. Anger for wanting to leave. Anger for not leaving. There were happy times. But were they worth it? My life was heading in one direction but got side swiped by a fucking Winnebago. All semblance of control was lost, and now that it's finally back on track, I don't know if it's the right track anymore. Best laid schemes....

It's weird, the things a movie will make you think. That's their job though, isn't it? It's also awkward writing them down. I told myself that this was my space, to say what I want to say. But when you know the people that will read your thoughts personally, it almost feels like I shouldn't speak freely. But fuck it. Like I said, this is my place. The truth hurts, and I haven't said anything that's not true.

Jesus, this post got out of hand quickly.


Things On My Mind

1. I've been thinking about getting my own domain address, but I'm having a hard time deciding what it should be. Should I keep using the Freon persona, begin using my real name, or fashion a totally new handle? That's the hardest question. Where should I host it? sustainablehost.com sounds like a cheap place and they look like they can run MovableType which I want to start using. But there's also some local hosts that I've had recommended to me. As soon as I get a day off where I have some time to do it, I'll decide what to do and do it.

2. I also want to start a blog to deal with the trip to Mexico I'm planning. It will probably take place March 2003 around my birthday. My two cousins will accompany me as I tour the motherland. I want a place to put up photo's of the trip and post thoughts and comments as well. I might make it a group blog, and have my cousins post as well. Since they don't know English, it would be a multicultural site. Every post will be in both English and Spanish, with me doing the translating. So hopefully I'll have time soon to get all this going.

3. I've been wanting to get a dog for a very long time. The problem has been deciding what kind. I guess the price is really the biggest obstacle. So I visited the Dewey Animal Shelter but didn't see anything I wanted. Mostly Pitbull's, which are pretty but I don't have the attitude(balls) for one of those.

Top 5 Dogs(random order)
Siberian Husky
Red Bone Coonhound
Old English Sheepdog

Since I won't be able to shell out $400 or more for a dog anytime soon I'll just keep visiting the dog shelters and see what I can find.

4. I've been reading Quicksilver and it is really good. So far there isn't much action, but I love the history and the politics. Neal Stephenson is great.

5. I also just read the latest issue of Sleeper by Ed Brubaker. He is such a good writer and the comic is excellent. The only comic that I can rate a 10 on every issue. After 11 issues I'm still impatient for the next one, that rarely happens with comics. Usually I read a title for a few months then realize that I just don't really care for the story. Sleeper, Rex Mundi, and Y the Last Man are the exceptions to the rule.

6. Damnit I'm getting tired and can't think of what else to say. Nobody really cares anyways.
