As I suspected, Rhomboids are going to be huge tomorrow. Your videos have been amazing. I'd say that the wind might be a big factor but I am extremely agile. Plus, if Devestatin' Dave has taught us anything, it's that the right outfit makes all the different. Hold on tight.

Woah, too tight...

The West Stripes



Okay. Dish. Much is hoping to have a an exclusive online party after the MMVAs. I haven’t heard who but “The MMVA AfterMath” might feature some great encores. I've even heard that they're trying for an inter-artist jam session. It’s all pubic-hair conjecture at this point but if it really did go down, wow, that would be delicious. The carpet and the drapes.

I’d love to see The White Stripes and Kanye bang out a track. Of course West is far too much of an egotistical prick-stick for that to happen.

Still, sounds like it could be great. I’m not so sure about the name though, after math I usually have recess where I look for my ball. And then a little laugh at my consumer variation jargon class.

Zing!

Give me your shout outs. Give me your adjectives. Give me your best. Don’t know what an adjective is? Learn some grammar. Want to invent your own adjective? Do it. Want to string three together and make a trifectadjective? I think it’s safe to say you’ve nailed it.

I want you to fill in the blank. Pick one. Pick them all. Shoot it so I can hear it. And say it like you mean it.

Everyone needs a good disguise

I love this idea. Carlip collects abandoned grocery lists. Develops an entirely fictional back story for the owner and then with the help of some gifted make-up artists assumes the identity of said shopper.

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1905264178
From Publishers WeeklyStarred Review. Ever since she was a teenager, performance artist and author Carlip has been collecting strangers' lost shopping lists and imaging the lives and people behind them. With the help of expertly applied makeup and outlandish costumes, Carlip has turned herself into the men and women that she imagined. From a wife-seeking, Fu Manchu–mustached redneck to an octogenarian stand-up comic, a washed-up lesbian rock star to a 20-something goth boy, Carlip takes inspiration from both the mundane—potatoes—and the disturbing—mousetraps, cheese, mouse. The 26 vivid photographic portraits and accompanying narratives display the author's humor, grace and a brilliantly creative eye. Carlip's alter egos are larger than life and twice as entertaining.

There are only 9 words

Okay wow. The school system is failing you. Learn some grammar. Your brain should be lean and mean not fat and bloated.

1. Noun: Person. Place. Or Thing. (e.g.) Megatron, Candy Land, gravity.
2. Verb: Action word. (e.g.) spank, defy, electrocute.
3. Adverb: Modifies verbs. (e.g.) spank happily, defy repeatedly, electrocute abruptly.
4. Adjective: Modifies nouns. (e.g.) slimy Megatron, hairy Candy Land, imaginary gravity.
5. Pronoun: Replace nouns in a sentence. (e.g.) Megatron removed his jeans.
6. Conjunction: Joins parts of a sentence together. Megatron inserted his manhood into the toaster and hoped for the best.
7. Articles. There are only three: a, an, and the.
8. Prepositions: Marks the position or relation of one thing to another thing. (e.g.) There is a tiny pirate hiding inside my hat.
9. Interjections: simple sounds to express a feeling. (e.g.) Wow! Oh! What! Sweet Mary Christmas!

There. Grammar 101. At the very least know the nine. Now try to spot all nine words in this sentence:

Great-Polybius! Phreak615 absolutely loved his enormous rhomboids and the way they blocked all light from the blistering sun.

Pump up the Volume is the best movie ever.

Okay maybe just the best movie of the 90’s. Still, I’ll follow Happy Harry Hard On till the day I die. And the Eat Me Beat Me Lady? Shazam! I deify you to find a more compelling sex symbol. There’s a girl here at the office that reminds me of her. I think about her all the time. I even make tasks for myself that put me in her vicinity.

But I digress.

This film had a huge impact on me. My older brother actually set up his own pirate station with a transmitter from Radio Shack. He could broadcast up to four even five blocks away. It was rad.

Sure, now everyone and their dog can have a blog or podcast. But that doesn’t mean they should. Speaking out loud should be a privilege not a right. In fact, talking for the sake of talking should be penalized on a sliding scale. Random outburst? Okay, no big deal, everyone slips up from time to time let’s call that a 5 dollar fine. On the other end you have the full out, standing on a soap box, nonsensical diatribe. That’s a kick in the baby maker.

The point is, if you have something real to say. Do it.

I am simply creating the hole for you to fill.

How to hack broadcast television

So ADAM, BOBBY & HeatVision_and_Jack are wondering how I’m managing these phreaks. Sorry my little Phreaks and Phreakets but you’d need direct access to make it happen. That said; send me your videos, if they’re good I’ll make you famous.

First off, gone are the days of being able to simply “take over” an analogue broadcast frequency and hijack the feed that way - as you can see in my earlier blog here. Everything is digital now. That makes it harder for most, but in fact, easier for me.

Basically, the tech guys here have their thumbs up their asses. New technology plus old tech staff equals wiiiiiiiiiiiide open access.

I have direct access to our digital media server (the source for all outgoing broadcasts). I wired up a custom network cable similar to a RJ-45 cross-over cable and hooked it into one of the spare networking ports. Normally these ports are disabled or at least secured but as I said earlier, this is relatively new and not everyone is up to speed from a security standpoint. Plus, I’m sure they never anticipated me.

Anyways, I ran that cable out to a standard D-link wireless router (works better with Macs than Linkys) and set up a “hidden” wifi network. Now all I need to do is park my car across the street from the building and I can upload any audio or video directly to the server. The actual tricky part is the script that automatically runs an override to the current broadcast stream at pre-set times. Coincidently these times are when I’m out of the office.

Now I can upload and inject video snippets into the main broadcast feed from my wireless laptop pretty much when ever I’m feeling a little saucy. At least for now. I’m giving this whole thing a week tops before my little work around gets discovered.

Anyway, without direct access to the server there’s no way anyone could ever hope to gain access. So sorry. But again, like I said I’ll load your stuff in if you send it to me.

And again during MOD here



Yeah, when they figure it all out I’ll be fired. But fuck it; I’m leaving the country anyways this summer. (Ko Phangan here I come).

And I’m thinking let’s go out with a bang.

Upload more of your videos here (YouTube links to your rants in the comments section). I’ll get them on. I can’t promise when or where, but I’ll get them on. And Sweet Mary Christmas please have something intelligent to say.

Please, this is a LOL free zone.

I hate people that use emoticons and internet slang. Where did we get the idea that butchering the English language was cool? ROFL? BRB? SFW? Come on. I understand that phone texting necessitated a sparse form of communication because you were paying per character. But with most plans that’s just not the case anymore and it never was an issue on the internet. Emoticons are the scurvy of written word. (That’s right, the pirate disease). If you can’t write a sentence that communicates effectively without a ;) a :( or a :0 then I say that’s it were done. We mine as well pack it up now as a generation.

I guess what I’m trying to say is people that use emoticons in their writing should have their nose rubbed in it. And by “It” I of course mean my ass.

Cheers;)

Okay that went better than I expected. And clearly I’m surrounded by the deaf, dumb and blind. It’s been 24 hours and no, I haven’t heard anything about it from programming. Still working out the glitches though, but I’ve successfully managed to hack the channel. Eat it.

“I’m giving serious thought to eating your wife.”

I love that line. It gives me chills. It’s so deliciously subversive. Speaking of which, the time has come. I am going to hack the channel. We interrupt this programming for a special corporate screw you.

Phreak your TV

I modded my X-box. Got the chip off ebay. 50 plus games, what’s not to love? It’s the second hardest workout I get each day.

Now I’m thinking big. Prime-time. National. I’m thinking hacking the channel. And by hacking I mean I’m going to push about three buttons here in master control. (Four if you count erasing the evidence).

Oh. Did I mention that I work for a network? Don’t tell. Stay tuned. Ha. Very funny dick.

"Hack the planet!"

If you haven’t seen the seminal classic Hackers you should rent it today. A pre-baby factory Angelina Jolie stars with a pre-Eli Sold Out Jonny Lee Miller as the best computer cowboys in NYC.

When Crash Override (Miller) meets Acid Burn (Jolie) for the first time they battle for hacked control of the local television network. Tron Deadly Disc this makes me happy. I can think of only one thing better. Angelina Jolie’s lips, wrapped around a Tutti-Frutti popsicle.
Perhaps I’ve said too much.

Load up with the best trailer you’ve ever seen:



Sweet-Mary-Christmas this makes me happy.

I’m sure all you true believers already know it, but the "Gibson" super main frame computer that they hack is homage to Cyber Punk author extraordinaire William Gibson. If you’re not familiar with his books. You should read them too. Right after you watch Hackers.

Mmm. Joliescicles
