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…

Did you notice over at that link to MT2Blosxom there is a little icon for Twiki? Now I didn’t look too much at the Twiki site itself… but it was Twiki!!… what memories.. Twiki… Dr Theopolis and Colonel Deering (mmmm baby!)

Dude! I felt so out of step because I didn’t recognise the “I am ignio Montoya … father … prepare to die” thing that I went and hired The Princess Bride on vid that weekend.
Now your telling me i missed Buck rogers too?!
Maybe I was looking for something behind the couch when that was on.
I do remember a cartoon version with winged people in floating castles … but no robot(?) named Twiki.

Inconceivable!

You mean you have never seen the TV version of Buck Rogers?

It was very daggy.. and very cool at the same time – if you know what I mean.

What did you think of The Princess Bride?

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..

Yeah – it’s something like that — it just got stuck in my head – it’s weird sounding.

And that’s exactly why I had to see the movie — i was feeling severely left out.
