Some songs, written in bullet-style lists. Very funny inducing.
I have to geek out for a moment. Check out Virginia Tech’s System X: 1100 Apple G5 Xservers, 4 Apple G5 Xserver Compliers, and one Xserve RAID for a total of 12 gigaflops of computing power and 2.7 terabytes of storage. Whoa. And it is only the 7th largest supercomputer in the world.
There has been a great cross pollination between the lotsofnoise forum and the urban planet forum. People have been cross posting – the “yuppies” and the “dirty artists”. Hopefully, people are learning that these labels are merely that, but at any rate, the conversation is very interesting and has engrossed me. Check it out.
Hmm. The Sony Playstation Portable goes on sale today. Should I buy one? I suppose I could try to use it for video artworks, then I can write it off, eh?
A just got an email from Tim Devin letting me know that the first phase of the Transcontinental Reversioning Society has been completed – he created a great remix of my Crocket The Ironmonger track Three Chords. Next up is my remix of it, and also my remix of his track, which for now I will not reveal.
His Remix ++++
Original Track ++++
I just hooked up Picasa’s Hello, which should enable me to post photos directly from Picasa. If it works, you should be looking at a rendering I recently worked on here at Osborn. Its of the new offices for Pacifica Electrical Contractors.
There is so much wrong with IMAX theater’s decision to not show the film “Volcanoes of the Deep Sea” because of its mention of evolution, that I just decided to stop going to IMAX theaters while this policy continues. Is there no room for competing viewpoints? Now a movie theater has to take it upon itself to decide which messages are allowed and which are not, on the basis of the supposed religious beliefs of its viewers? Are these beliefs so fragile that people cannot stand to see a film mention an opposing viewpoint in fear of their whole world collapsing?
This Thurs. March 24 at 7:30, FIXED, produced by Lewis Haidt and directed and edited by Neil Matsumoto, will be shown at the American Cinemateque’s Alternative Screen series at the Egyptian Theater. “FIXED tells the story of a quiet young man on the fringes of L.A.’s art scene — whose strong desire to focus on his artwork results in taking drastic measures to free himself from sexual distractions. Along the way he meets a rising art star and a wealthy, older art patron who offers assistance that makes Matthew uncomfortable.” Jeremy and I provided the artwork for “rising art star” played by Tina Holmes. Go see it!
