Library of Congress Video Game Catalog


Tuesday, October 23rd, 2007

second life

According to this article over at Kotaku. The Library of Congress has begun to assemble a team to figure out the best way to preserve video games so they can be studied and examined in further detail in the future.  The video game devision would catalog games just as the film, and recording devisions currently do.  Great to think that someone is doing this. I imagine playing an original version of Space Wars in the year 2068 will be quite a treat.

Im finally on teh intenets for realz yo!

For a long time I was relegated to using CDMA because my previous landlady wouldn’t let me get any connection that was tied in any way to the space she was renting. Don’t ask. :) Anyway, Im pleased to say that I have officially entered the 21st century, and I feel like I’m flying. No more buffers on my YouTube vidz.  Im planning on encasing my CDMA modem in resin and hanging it on my wall for her years of good use.  I got boinged three times this last year using this little bullshit modem. Hope the magic hasn’t worn off.

 teen ass

So, as some of you know, on youtube Im known as  PotheadPundit  and I ve posted a few videos disputing idiot creationists/intelligent design morons.  One in particular where I mess with Kirk Cameron and Bill O Reilly’s idiot discussion about the origin of the world has got over a hundred thousand views, and continues to get around 1000 views a day.  Don’t ask me why. I don’t know. Anyway, so part of my daily routine is reading letters from christians who want to convert me, and today, well, today I was absolutely blown away by one idiot in particular who sent me this gem of an email.

Hello Pothead we gotta talk Evolutuon hmmmmm….. ok Jesus Died for you so you could be free amd live with him forever ok if we came from nothing then why dont we know evrything?? ever thought about that how did we learn to speak talk and how did we know to think???? GOD thas it so are you open to the possibility that you may be wrong?”

now, this would be funny, but because of this guys absolutely idiotic use of the english language I decided I needed to find out more about him.  I skated over to his profile . Besides learning that he is an  “aspiring track athlete” I found out he also likes to look at ass.  I think it is in Corinthians where it discusses the value of staring at girls who shake their ass on their webcams!!:) fucking idiot.

Ron Paul, The Internet, and getting people to do stuff


Saturday, October 20th, 2007

Ok, as readers of this blog have probably already figured out, Im a bit of an internet geek.  I spend a lot of time on the internet, and am fascinated with books like “Made to Stick” and “The Tipping Point”.  One thing that any beginning marketer, or afficianado of internet memes knows, is that it is really hard to get people to do anything.  If you are selling something through the internet, it is a challenge to get people to that step where they finally take out their credit cards and fork over the dough.   If you are trying to get readers for a blog, you have to post concise, interesting, relevant posts daily. And even then Google doesn’t even know you exist for six months.  If you are trying to sell an idea, or get that idea stuck in someones head then you will most likely fail with 100 ideas before one finally sticks. To sum things up, it is extremely hard to get anyone to do anything.

Part of my daily routine is that I go to the YouTube news section, and watch the videos I find interesting. Then I skip on over to Digg and see if anything catches my eye.  One thing that anyone who frequents either of these sites knows is that Ron Paul dominates the political posts by about 20 to 1.  The mainstream media has called them RonPaulaholics,  people who live in this mysterious land of the internet, and email networks to have him on their shows, record and then upload not only every Ron Paul appearance on television, but record and then upload anytime anyone mentions Ron Paul’s name.  Now, why is this at all important, and why am I currently writing another post about Ron Paul? The answer is that Ron Paul for some reason gets people to do stuff.  The idea is so strong that it has changed peoples daily schedules, peoples views on wars, and even got them to use their time uploading, blogging and spreading a political message.

Why is this so important? Currently only about 50 percent of eligible voters get off their asses and vote.  One thing we’ve seen already with Ron Paul continuously showing extremely well at straw polls is that Ron Paul supporters will leave their house to attend a straw poll. They will spend 15 cents to send a text message after a debate. They will blog about him. They will take out their credit cards and donate money. They will make their own videos about him and post them on youtube. In short, Ron Paul supporters make the leap from thought into action.  It takes very little effort to say who you support during a phone poll (which is how most of these presidential polls are done, not to mention the fact that they also call people who will are “most likely vote” in the upcoming election).

One thing that the mainstream media has forgot time and time again.  It is that people who make elections are highly organized groups, these are the people who will actually get out there and vote.  The republicans have the Christian Fundies, the democrats have the Unions and minorities. Both sides have a “get out the vote” campaign.  Now, with Ron Paul, we see the first internet candidate. We are also seeing an anarchic synergy which has propelled an otherwise unknown candidate into the mainstream. Make no mistake, Ron Paul didn’t find the internet, the internet found Ron Paul.

If our numbers remain strong, we will be a force that will wake up the mainstream media.  The idea I would like to spread is that Ron Paul motivates people into action, and that this should become part of the campaign.  We are the people on Digg, and YouTube that make stories stick and others languish.  We have the power to directly alter and help form a political candidate, let’s not lose this opportunity.  Digg this story up, and watch how your participation on the internet can change a presidential campaign. My message is simple. If you agree with it, then start spreading it. Ron Paul makes people do stuff, and people who do stuff, will also get off their asses and vote. :)

The Robot Uprising has Begun!


Friday, October 19th, 2007

I’ve noticed a trend in the last couple days, and that is that remote controlled military devices are beginning to malfunction and turn on their masters. In the above video you see a gun which turned on the audience of a VIP arms dealer presentation. Also the newest article “”Robot Cannon Kills 9, Wounds 14” over at the wired blog caught my eye.

Download Radiohead “in rainbows” for free


Thursday, October 18th, 2007

So Radiohead has released their latest album “in rainbows” for free on the internet (well, they let people pay what they want for it, which is nice). However the site could be a bit easier to navigate, and its not linked from the main radiohead website for some reason. So here’s the fast track to the free radiohead download.

Go here

Click on “Order”

then for the price type in the amount you want to pay ( 0.00 is acceptable) then you will be put in line for the download. Pretty simple really. enjoy.

(UPDATE) Radiohead has just redirected radiohead.com to go to the in rainbows site. Good for them! Always good to see a cutting edge band realise that they should be happy with people pirating their album, and even happier with the fact that even though it is available for free, many fans are still willing to pay for it.

Tetris Apartments

tetris apartment

Tetris Apartments in Ljubljana Slovenia.  I have a soft spot in my heart for Ljubljana as I played a show there last summer, and the food was fantastic, the people inspiring, and of course my show went over well.  I love these sort of projects that incorporate some life into what would otherwise be a pretty stale housing development.  Prague is currently in a real estate boom, and there are tons of shitty suburban apartments begin to sporout up on the outskirts of town.  Thank god my girl and I just got a place right outside of the center.  Anyway, these buildings were designed by Ofis.
