I’ve seen the future and I’ve left it behind

Remember Simon the muppet from Sesame street? Blue, round head, kind of balding and middle-aged. He would talk (like most muppets) but also had the ability to pipe out a bit of music straight out of his mouth if he needed to – to help explain something. Someone would ask, ‘what’s a trombone?’ and he’d say, ‘well it’s long golden and shiny and it goes “wah-wa-wah-woh” — except it’d be the actual sound of a trombone.

I want to do that on here.
A while back I was going to post an entry on how Black Sabbath have some songs that rival (and probably go beyond) Led Zep in catchiness and hooky guitar riffs. There’s this little bit of guitar in ‘Supernaut’ that sounds a bit like a carpet sweeper on steroids – and I wanted to mention this, but the best I can do to descibe it is what you just read. Which isn’t good enough. The possibility is there to be 100% precise through adding this 2-3 seconds of sound to the entry.
And I seem to be thinking a lot more in fragmented sounds (or maybe just fragmented full stop).

What I’d like is the ability to embed 30 or 80kb worth of audio in a post. It’d work similar to a roll-over .gif where you wouldn’t hear it until you stuck the cursor on it. That’s about the maximum size I think would be viable while bandwidth costs what it does right now. (But you know, I’m really surprised by how many people seem to think it’s reasonable to have their index page running at over a megabyte in size – in images. It’s crazy.) It’d preload the way rollovers do too.
I don’t know if the same javascript used for them could be used for audio or not. Probably not. Maybe XML could do it. This is the bit I don’t know about. Maybe browsers would need to be adjusted for them to recognise it—which is a lot of work. I remembered today, while looking at MacGenius that i had actually seen something like this; the
Primal Scream website, but that uses Flash, which is just that one level further away. It’s not integrated into the browser. There are people that the point would be lost on.

I really like the way that movable type has the facility to upload and stick an image into an entry. There’s less mucking around than using an ftp client etc. It’d be good if this could be done with sound too.

In other news: I watched Signs on the weekend with Ma. The best bit about it was the appearance of tinfoil headgear.

I tried that a while ago, and then ended up just posting a link to whatever midi it was. Surely there’s a nasty javascript that runs and plays something when you mouseover a hotspot, but I think maybe you’d be limited to embedding midis, or just linking to a wav or mp3. If you get into that, you’d want to check your hosting provider’s stance on mp3’s too.

And then there is the problem if people hover over a link/button/whatever and nothing happens instantly… it would have to be preloaded, but either way it takes time. When there is an image of say 80k, it has aplace holder so that at least you know what you are waiting for.. I reckon the sound would need a palce holder too

invasion of the body-tag snatchers

I don’t get this at all. I always wanted to be ‘big in Japan’ but this isn’t exactly what I had in mind. I keep expecting a doppelganger (except with japanese letters on his t-shirt) to walk through the door, klang me on the head with a mallet and take over my identity. Actually, considering my homework load: GoodLuck fella! hahah.
Anyway – since I’m now linking to it, maybe when it updates it’ll start feedbacking and explode. And what’’s with the prawns link at the top?? I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned prawns in here. Whatever.

Via osnews there’s this rumour that apple OS X.3 would go full metal in look. My first reaction was to get whiney about how it’s a rip off of Enlightenment, but instead I think I’ll go on a little nostalgia trip to when I first saw enlightenment. It was december 2000 and i’d been living at the beach for about a month. This is what it looks like, but imagine it being right across your screen. I’d never known a desktop could look so simple but attractive. I’d go sit on the beach, looking at the glassy sand where the waves would just reach to, right out to the horizon and then up into the sky. And I’d think that enlightenment was like the digital equivalent of that.
It’s a pretty neat desktop. Waiting for its successor, E17, to arrive has (and still is) like waiting for Deep Thought to announce the answer to 6×7 is 42.

I’m off to Rancho Relaxo for the weekend. My brother’s computer blew up. He needs his minnows98 disc back. i need to get some study done.

liver! … liver! … liver!

Audiophonicly I’m rockin’ out to – DJ Shadow – walkie talkie, that Beastie Boys track ‘in a world gone mad’ (it’s so hard to make a song political and fun to listen to, but this one’s doing it) … and totally rocking my sox off to one track by an act called Foetus — ‘Cirrhosis Of The Heart’ (Remixed By Amon Tobin). Even on the adequate but small two-speaker computer set up it really rolls and drives.
Everything I’ve heard of Amon Tobin’s I’ve liked so far. I can’t tell if it’s the ‘mystery apsect’ in that I don’t actually know anything about this entity (one person? more?). I don’t know, my head plays tricks on me. I should just trust my ears.

I’m still quietly playing with Blosxom. I had a go of MT2Blosxom the other day. It converts all your movable type entries to -that’s right – blosxom entries. It took me a little while to figure out how to use it (ask if you want to know) and it worked! Kind of. The entries came out in slab format – no line breaks. And moving comments is another kettle of fish again.
Thanks go to nf0 (its coder) for replying to my chumpish plea for help in getting it working.
It’s a patience thing. I’m sure that in a couple of months the road between MT and blosxom will be fully asphalted and signed. Goodness knows the roadwork in general is proceeding at a rapid pace.

I was thinking of changing my tagline to, “blogging without even knowing what it is and how it works”. At midday it gave me a Dr.Hibbert style chuckle but seems kind of lame now. These young turks…

Yes – I doon’t think I have seen it.

I liked the P.B. — it was nice. Nice story. Far enough away from ‘typical’ to be memorable — but not memorable enough that ‘my name is Ignio Montoya…’ will be looping in my head during a workday.

The word ‘bivouac’ is giving me problems right now.

What’s the problem with bivouac?

Old greek word isn’t it? Maybe with a military connotation. Something to do with a camp?

Regarding, PB, I always find it interesting the number of people that know and like it. I remember being at a party in the States once.. for some reason I was talking to some guy about it.. ended up a with a group of like 10 people all reciting lines..

trackback for chumps

“It’s funny, I recently attempted explaining trackback to someone and after a half-hour with no luck I tried the ‘fingers as shadow puppets on the wall’ method but to no avail. Now today I find this – those Trotts must be, like, psychic or something!”

In all honesty, last year when I enabled trackback it was a couple of weeks more before i figured out what the hell it was. And after yesterday, I realise I still need practise with it – I was pinging a fellow weblogger, and when the post went through the save process (which is when it sends out its ping) it was telling me, “500. It didn’t ping through” (500 is rapidly becoming a bad number in my books; it’s also the server error number I get when rebuilding this thing sometimes). So I hit it again, thinking that it was just all the music I was d/loading that was clogging up the pipes, and maybe the ping would go through with another attempt. I did that 4 times, and then realised the pings were infact going through. Ooops.
And all that was before I started noticing typoes in the post, which invariably happens. They somehow make it that MT doesn’t send multiple pings to weblogs.com, it’d be swell if that could be set right across the board.

To stand back a bit, I wonder how much of a correlation there is between 1. How easily understood a new technology is and 2. How quickly it takes off / how successful it’ll be at all. Take the toaster for example. Toasters are easy to understand, and now everyone has a toaster. But DaVinci invented the submarine and then it was several centuries before it was implemented, despite the obvious adavantages of it enabling breathing under water.

I guess I just don’t understand trackback. I can’t think of why it’s good or useful or anything. Does trackback really make the world a better place? You’re comparing it to a crucial invention of the previous century but… I dunno, I just don’t think it’s that great.

But like I said, it’s entirely possible that I just don’t understand.

Yeah, no that’s what i mean monkey — it’s because it’s just not that crucial (and hard to understand) that means it probably won’t take off, or at most be drowned out by some other net gadget in the future that does explain itself without a lengthy ‘HowTo’.

became slightly unstuck in time

Cooly detached? me? Nah.
Thinking about it through the day and I suppose I consider the internet (and webloggen) to be a lightweight medium for conveying a message — particularly in this case where the issue is huge and I strongly disagree with what’s going on. I still think the only effective method of change is direct action; getting out there on the street, walking around and yelling.
A lot of people consider demonstrating to be a waste of time. But then, wouldn’t everything be a waste of time? Recycling milk bottles, voting in an election once every three years? At the end maybe I do it just to make myself feel better. I don’t agree with that whole wankerish adbuster attitude that social change can be affected through designing some really neat posters either.
Webloggen about it all reminds me a bit of that, and a .sig I saw once that read, (please excuse any apparent insensitivity) “winning an argument on the internet is like winning gold at the special olympics – at the end of the day you’re still a retard”.

I would comment on the coverage of it all, but all I can say is that it sickens me and (because of who it is that’s bringing the coverage) I don’t trust it.

I would write about it if I had something novel to say—mostly I don’t. There is one thing – i don’t support our troops. This isn’t draft conditions. The nasty govt didn’t pull your brother’s birthday out of a hat. Young Billy the 17 year old apprentice baker from next door didn’t just nobly volunteer himself to defend King and country. The australians who are there now are career-military.
I don’t think i assume too much when it comes to the individual intelligence levels of humans. When they signed up, they surely knew there was the possibility of it being more involved than checking fishing boats. It’s part-and-parcel of joining the military machine of a capitalist nation-state. The cliche still rings true, “Join the army; travel the world, meet interesting people… and kill them”.
As far as I know there is still such a thing as a ‘dishonourable discharge’ where a member of the defense force can “quit”. Each of them had the opportunity to think through the question, “Did I join to defend Australia or fight for Exxon in the MidEast?”
Given the relative level of wealth here, only people with a radically different world-view to me join the defense force. Exploding shit excites them. (I have anecdotal evidence of this. ;) )They are the same as those people jacking off to this televised war-porn, except they have more pep, more ‘get-up-and-Go!’. I can respect the fact that they think different to me, but I don’t have to support them.

Incidentally this is Howard’s tac now – ‘do you support them or not? If you do, you support Australia being there’. Saying that ‘we can’t pull out now’ is also cop-out.

Put someone in front of me and prompt them to say, “Hi, I’m here to invade you’re country”. That’s when I’ll rethink this position.
Thank to Graham for triggering me to push out this tumerous little tirade I’ve kept bottled too long.

I am not in favour of this conflict.. nor do I support our troops. Though what consititutes support anyway? I certainly have no wish for them to get killed.

I do however feel partly responsible. If the elected head of our clan says we are gonna do this.. then we are a part of it – even if we didn’t vote for him. Our system, the one we choose to live by, put him there.

Maybe we should have a civil war so that we don’t have to be a part of our current war mongering government.. becomes a bit hypocritical then i guess.

I reckon that all those Iraqis that are going to hate Australians, won’t be asking who you voted for in the last election before they pass judgment.

Sorry for the ramble…

Crispy, i think just saying what you said puts you in the Not Cooly Detached camp. :)

Jay – “what constitutes support?” – Good point. I hadn’t actually thought of that. maybe, just not sending a brown paper-wrapped box of biscuits to them if given the opportunity.
It’s just that a couple of times I’ve seen the pattern pop up of ‘rant-rant-rant, sure supporting the troops is fine BUT rant-rant-rant’ — and I wanted to differentiate myself from that.

Was great to see an snippet of Michael Moore taking advantage of the mic. handed to him at the Oscars and slamming little bush. They’ll never invite him back after that. Moore still gets on my nerves a little but he’s light-years preferable to the usual hollywood mafia.

Have been learning stuff about how we categorise, file, store and retrieve things in memory. I thought it was due to my nerdiness that it all was reminding me of the /home directory on the machine here, but then they tell us that half of these models/theories of how the brain functions in that sense were put together by computer programmers anyway. It’s interesting but a bit fanciful—like saying, ‘well i think god looks like this because…’.
For all I know there could be a little man sitting at a control seat in my head, with a whole bunch of levers and a periscope. And a switchboard.

I’m wondering if anyone’s ever thought of electrifying a xylophone? Probably. Okay hmm – someone has, but not lately. I figure it’‘d be done like guitar pickups under the um… bars (what do you call those things?). Would sound particularly good overdriven and blasting through a valve amp.

ask and ye shall probably receive

Another of these weird flow-on things. A few days back I mentioned old-time horror and then last night the movie The Body Snatcher popped up on ABC. I didn’t know anything about it but the guide said it had Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi. Bela Lugosi Rocks Eastern Europe 4 Eva! Unfortunately in this movie last night he only had a bit-part and was offed by Boris fairly quickly. The movie was based on a Robert Louis Stevenson short story. It reminded me a lot of this play I read half or so of – The Devil In The Dark by Dylan Thomas. Generally I find reading plays a pain in the arse, and this was no exception despite it being Dylan Thomas.

I notice Mandrake 9.1 is pretty much Go, but I’m getting weary of this style of updating. I think when I get a bit more financial I’ll send off a money order to EverythingLinux for Debian woody and give that a go. I’m taken with the idea of never having to do a full version upgrade (or deal with package dependency problems) again.

Last week i read a whole chapter made up mostly of a freudian analysis of ‘The A Team’. Who said Arts degrees were frivolous endevours? Actually this particular text book is pretty good – it references all these great shows from childhood like ‘Magnum P.I.’, ‘Miami Vice’, ‘Prisoner’, ‘Dallas’, ‘Knightrider’, ‘Starsky and Hutch’, ‘The Scarecrow and Mrs.King’, (which I remember the name of, but not what it’s about) ‘Hart to Hart’ and ‘Cagney and Lacey’ – of which I have no memory of. So far there’s been no mention of ‘CHiPS’, ‘Simon and Simon’, ‘The Dukes of Hazard’, ‘Mork and Mindy’, ‘Hardcastle and MaCormack’… and all the others.

“Howdy. Howdy-doody from Geelong, Alabama.”
What I’m trying to say is that this town is terribly apathetic, that’s all.

I cruise through these gaps of life where i don’t regularly hang out with any kids (I mean kids in the conventional sense; small, young people) and then they’ll pop up through a connection with adult humans I know. Sometime not long after that, they will figure out that I’m okay, wacky situations will ensue and I’ll get this thought of ‘Whoah! What are these people?”—but in a good kind of way.
Froggy and his wife have two boys – 7 and 8 y.o. The other day I was sitting in their living room and one was playing a synthesizer/keyboard.

nifty bonifty cool

I changed my (g)AIM identity. Was tired of doing the virtual equiv. of crossing to the other side of the street when I saw old aol aquaintances were on. There’s just no common ground there anymore. But also, I’ve always been pretty crap at maintaining frindships. But also — so are they! Yeah. i told ‘em about here, they could’ve visited.
No big deal really.
I wanted ‘Supermodified’ but it was taken. That word’s been pinging around in my head for days now. It’s the title of an amon tobin album, but as a word (or mashing of two words together) I like it. So esquimaux pie it is. Y’know there’s still a lot of french words we’re still using, like autumn. And esquimaux was the standard spelling for eskimo in english up until, oh I don’t know 90 years ago? I really have no idea, it just says esquimaux in one of my H.P.Lovecraft books.

I’ve been getting HTML colour co-ordination inspiration while hovering over the freezer aisle in the supermarket. It’s excellent.

Here’s the neatest little verse I’ve heard in an indie-pop song in years:
I’d let Godzilla step on my head,
and I’d let a mummy chase me around and throw me in a dungeon,
I’d let space aliens perform an autopsy on me
if I could just be near to you.
I’d let dracula drink my blood,
I’d let a zombie eat my arm,
I’d let Frankenstein punch me in the stomach,
just if i could be near…

from Teenage Fanclub’s song, which I’m guessing is called something like ‘Near to you’.
Must go hire some trashy old-school horror movies…. You notice how everyone’s saying ‘old-school’ lately? Haha. I was seriously think maybe 3 weeks or a month ago that i got to say ‘old school’, because it sounds cool, but then i forgot and now I’ve missed the boat completely.

There’s been a lot of talk of zombies lately and it’s reminded me of a buddy (another friendship that I’ve let fall by the wayside (wherever the wayside is) but again it was mutual) — a writer who was at the Gordon with me. Sure there were a lot of writers there, seeing that it was a writing course, but there were only few who actually wrote stuff that I liked. And this guy, CH was one. He went into a phase of weaving a zombie, or zombies, into each story he wrote. And it wasn’t forced either. They just seemed to show up. Must pull out the phone book tomorrow.

Random link for the day – came across while looking for pictures of ‘fat camp’. I like the quotes; “Nerds shall inherit the earth”, “With food like this, ADVANCE doubles as a fat camp” and “ADVANCE has played a key role in my life for….yeah, a whole bunch of years” .

Feeling a tad frustrated with the external insanity flying about this evening. Ah.

I briefly mentioned on Core yesterday that this new search engine, [deleted] has started. It only gathers from people’s RSS (syndication) feeds. I didn’t come across an explanation of how it determines the relevancy of results, but weblogs should get a proportionately larger look in than with other systems.

I’m doing a site redesign at present. It’s still so much of an irregular event that what it looks like at the end is always completely different to the before-starting vision. But i do think I’m slowly starting to get the hang of CSS. The final result is a way off yet. I’‘d really like it to be a clean break from one this the next, for once.

Hammersley mentions a comment-spammer doing the rounds for zipcode.com. I got a couple of these blog-spammy things the other day. Then this morning I thought I’d comment-spam hammersley for a bit of a larf -ahk-ahk. (But seriously – I left a normal comment.)

The last couple of days while tappping into here and I’ve got to a part where the contraction of “it has” would be handy, I’ve typed “it’s” and it has looked completely wrong to me. It sent me into these spirals of thinking no one will be able to understand me. One of those Homeric, “Everytime I learn something new it pushes some old stuff out of my brain!” situations. The tripped out bit is that – that’s what it says on my boxer shorts.

Hehe… I don’t know where they came from – may have just been waiting around at weblogs.com.
