>Blame it on Roger Daltrey, whose voice and hair and ego never did it for me, but I've never liked The Who

Then you shouldn't have been reviewing this performance. Evidence follows.

>Somehow it makes sense that a group of ten women could get past macho rock star posturing

You not only dislike The Who, you misunderstand them. Roger was never a poser onstage.

>nutty Radio London jingles—“Drink easy, Drink easy, Drink easy/Puh-lee-zee”

That's “Drink easy, drink easy, pull easy”. 2 “Drink easy”s, and the “pull easy” refers to pulling either a drink (as from a draft tap) or a girl (British slang that you may need to look up).

>With the opening notes of “Miles and Miles”

Oh, for God's sake. It's “I Can See for Miles”. Only one of the most important songs in The Who's career. But you wouldn't know that don't like The Who.

>glowing cell phones were held aloft. (Puh-lee-zee.)

Again, that's “Pull easy.” The joke kind of falls apart if you fumble the setup.

>Money, money, moneybags
>There goes mangy Stingy
>There goes mangy Stingy

That's mingy Stingy. If you liked The Who, you might do better with their lyrics. Hopefully, someone else will be sent to review further Who-related events.

CIA agent's spouse says Bush aide Rove must go

By Sue Pleming
2 hours, 5 minutes ago

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The husband of a CIA agent whose identity was exposed during the fierce debate over the Iraq war accused the White House on Thursday of being involved in a giant “cover-up” involving top aide Karl Rove.

Federal investigators are looking into who leaked the identity of covert CIA agent Valerie Plame, whose name appeared in a newspaper column exactly two years ago, on July 14, 2003. Rove, who orchestrated Bush's presidential campaigns, has emerged as a source for at least one other media report on the case.

You think my shoes are made of leather

I look pretty tall but my heels are high
The simple things you see are all complicated
I look pretty young, but I'm just back-dated, yeah

Substitute your lies for fact
I can see right through your plastic mac
I look all white, but my dad was black
My fine looking suit is really made out of sack

I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth
The north side of my town faced east, and the east was facing south
And now you dare to look me in the eye
Those crocodile tears are what you cry
It's a genuine problem, you won't try
To work it out at all you just pass it by, pass it by

It was a day hot enough to melt chocolate.

I was overlooking the Hudson, from a high floor, south towards Ellis Island, where some of my ancestors came from, because they didn't have multinational police cooperation back then.

I was discussing a project, one which seemed to be easy - unless I complicated it.

I had enough money in change for the subway home, and this job - well it seemed better than jumping - if I didn't complicate it.

You could do many things I said, complicating things.

You could?

Yes, you could.


To complicate things, I said.

Oh. I don't have a lot of money.

Oh, well then lets not complicate things, I said.

Let's keep it simple, I said.

Re: Pop Rocks

Do you fetishize complexity?

When I worked at the dotcom one of my bosses was like that. Everytime we would solve a problem, he'd come up with one more twist—one more thing to squeeze in. And we were trying to make something for the general public to operate. It was inappropriate to the user. So it was stupid.

But he was trying to prove he was smart. It was completely a one upsmanship thing on his part.

Sometimes simpler is smarter. Actually the smartest thing is what's most “right”.

Is that what you said?

Simple doesn't give you job security.

When I was at the .com there was a boss, a CEO, a web master, some programmers, some sales folks, the bosses wife and the freelancers.

The head of sales was like Jerry McGuire. SHow me the money. Ex cigar salesman. Sweating all the time. Musta been on something? Coffee? Cocaine? Life? The other sales folks wer apparently high school graduates with average to poor writing skills. They would hand me the copy and I'd wince. Spell check it.

The CEO apparently used to work at AOL. Woooeeeee! AOL is instant messager for sucky, IMHO. Any tch dork worth their salt knew that from the get-go. Now? I'd join em in a heartbeat.
Sell in baby.

The CEO was like a friend I grew up with - an insincere grin plastered across his face, full of irrational confidence, never met a failure that wasnt a possitive. He'd invent copy, raising his hands to bracket the genius “you'll pop out of your seat, as your eyes do the cha cha!!!” would have been way better than any inane and dispiriting slogan he came up with.

The CEO had kids. He took a pay cut from 100 to 50gs before I left. AOL indeed.

The Webmaster made 120,000 a year - and this was after the bubble burst.

I was earning 20/hr - outasight! I barely knew Dreamweaver, let alone HTML.

I taught my friend photoshop and kept my head down. WHen they asked me to lay up a onesheet I complied. So what if I had little or no print experience? 20$ an hour!

On my earnings I could go out to lunch. One time I had Steak Tartare. I came back really pumped on Testosterone only to have to sit meekly in a chair near the bosses wife.

The Wife didn't get along with many of the females. “You can't get good help,” she said one day about her maid. Upper East all the way.

The owner smoked cigars. I sneezed all the time. I thought it might have been a bit of the 9-11 fallout. Who knows. I'm breathing metal dust now. OSHA says toxicity is based on exposure.

One day we were called in to do a photo shoot. We were airbrushed by a veteran of the Sally Jesse Raphael Show. I looked like commander Data from Star Trek. We all sat on a couch and pretended to be amazed while I ate all the popcorn. Fuck Yeah!

On the street I did the robot. I coulda been one of those whistling mines with silver skin you see around.

Maybe I should call them, see if I can get my old job back. It would be something.

Masters of Flexibility

Yeesh. No need to script every're goddamn fucking right.

Another permutation of flexibility is the designer who obsesses over the size of the end users monitor. This requires “liquid design.”

Database driven websites are what got visual artists excited by the internet. “What if you could add up all the numbers in your number collection?” We thought.

Programs like Debabelizer allowed people to obsess over color palettes, merging them and defining them. - You used to be limited to 256 colors - several being reserved for the browser window itself. NO more! Monitors the world over support millions of colors now!

None of this knowledge has earned me much, if any, money. I never had a mentor in the internet thing. SO I kind of blindly followed whatever complexity there was, hoping I would know enough one day. Well that day has arrived. I don't know shit.

I bought action scripting MX 2004 in 24 hours. I think it might be dated as there is an Flash MX 2004 Professional now. I think the changes are minor - still, I'd hate to be learning the wrong thing.

SO I blew through the first four hours like they were fucking water.

So I saw some seventies porn and the Michael J Fox ad where he goes and gets a pepsi for the chick and then another chick shows up you know he has to get another one. Its a beautifull ad, and on film its simply breathtaking.

3. Pepsi: “Apartment 10G” (1987)
A beautiful woman moves in across the hall from Michael J. Fox. When they first meet, she innocently asks for a Diet Pepsi. Eager to oblige, Fox checks the refrigerator, but he's out of luck. He then jumps out his window into a driving rain, dodges traffic to cross the street and reach a vending machine on the other side. Sure enough, there's a Diet Pepsi in it, so he buys it and returns to offer his new friend the drink. “I hope it wasn't too much trouble,” she says. Pepsi brought the ad back in 2000 for Fox's final episode of the sitcom “Spin City.”

The scenario was a push-button yes — what guy hasn't had a lovely girl ask him for a trifle, and gone way way out of his way to get it?

What if sweetener causes Parkinsons? What if Aluminum causes Alzheimers? My world will be turned upside down.

Michael J. Fox: Wait a minute! Who the hell are you!

Michael After The Show: I'm you! I'm Michael J. Fox! I just came from 90 minutes in the future! The show's a complete dud!

Michael J. Fox: Wait a minute.. whoa, whoa, whoa.. what do you mean? What do you mean? It's gonna be a great show!

Michael After The Show: Michael, did you hear that last joke? It bombed!

Michael J. Fox: Alright, okay, alright.. but how about my next joke?

Doc: Oh, that bombs, too!

Michael J. Fox: No, no, no, it's great!

Doc: Well, try it!

Michael J. Fox: Alright. Okay, here goes.. I'm also excited, because tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day.. and maybe, instead of saying “Top o' the morning to ya”, I can say something like, “Top o' the evening to ya!”

CIA identity of Valerie Wilson and that Rove had confirmed to Novak that Valerie Wilson worked at the CIA.

SO then parse this

Re: Pop Rocks

But the person said Mr. Rove first heard from Mr. Novak the name of Mr. Wilson's wife and her precise role in the C.I.A.'s decision to send her husband to Africa to investigate a report, later discredited, that Saddam Hussein was trying to acquire nuclear material there.

It is not clear who Mr. Novak's original source was, or whether Mr. Novak has revealed the source's identity to the grand jury.

Ted Kramer is a career man for whom his work comes before his family. His wife Joanna cannot take this anymore, so she decides to leave him. Ted is now faced with the tasks of housekeeping and taking care of himself and their young son Billy. When he has learned to adjust his life to these new responsibilities, Joanna resurfaces and wants Billy back. Ted however refuses to give him up, so they go to court to fight for the custody of their son.

This is, unfortunately, a most disappointing book. Despite the respect evidenced by years of resourceful research, a handsome well illustrated format, twenty-eight pages of notes, and a thirteen page index, it trivializes both its subject and her times.

Marion Meade's meticulous documentation of every retrievable Parker love affair, enumerating not only with whom but, as far as possible, how often and where she was accompanied to bed, shows investigative ability worthy ofa better cause. In fact, the biographer frequently extends her conscientious report to inform us whom Parker's companions subsequently bedded.

Mark was born and raised in southwestern Washington State. His ambition as a teenager was to be a great novelist, but Mark was alarmed by the uniformly miserable fates of all the writers whom he loved. So he decided to pursue a career in music instead. After hitchhiking through Europe in search of experience, he moved to San Francisco determined to sink or swim as a poet-singer-songwriter. He sank. Completely bereft, he turned to spiritual seeking and ended up on the street where he spent the next 14 years. Ultimately his search led him to the wild parrot flock, which, in turn, led him back to writing, and his first book: ‘The Wild Parrots! of Telegraph Hill.’ The hardcover edition, published by Random House, was a best seller. The paperback edition comes out in late January 2005.

John Cage died at the age of 80.
In one of the last public lectures he gave...
his lecture focused not so much on his artwork but on
his desires to see the world become
“safe for poverty”.

Poverty is an unofficial crime in this country.
Every once in a while someone comes along this idea wrong. bravo.

I never liked George Michael much
Although they say he was the talented one
Andrew Ridgley drew the map
That rescued me, took me to paradise
I was brought up to the sound of the synthesiser
I learned to dance to the beat of electronic drums
I came alive to the smouldering fire in your eyes
I love you now and I will 'til the day that I die
I had a tooth pulled as a child
I put it underneath my pillow
And when I looked the very next morning
There was a ten pound not
I took it to the nearest record shop
I put it down upon the counter
I gotta tell you what I know to be true
I bought my first record because of you
I was brought up to the sound of the synthesiser
I learned to dance to the beat of electronic drums
I came alive to the smouldering fire in your eyes
I love you now and I will 'til the day that I die
I love everything
I love to be around money
A daughter of negative equity
A child of Black Wednesday
(Blue Monday, Black Wednesday)
This is Sarah Nixey talking
MIDI'ed and into the groove
I've got to tell you
What I know to be true
I didn't do too well at school
They said I couldn't concentrate
The day you flew off into the sunset
Was the day my education was saved
Then years later on Kensington High Street
I saw you drive a white convertible Golf GTI
Carefully edging out into the traffic
Just like a real live human being
I was brought up to the sound of the synthesiser
I learned to dance to the beat of electronic drums
I came alive to the smouldering fire in your eyes
I love you now and I will 'til the day that I die
Daddy lost everything
Our beautiful house, his beautiful sports car
His beautiful wife, I held his hand and told him
Everything would be all right

This is Sarah Nixey talking
MIDI'ed up and into the groove
I've got to tell you
What I know to be true
I was brought up to the sound of the synthesiser
I learned to dance to the beat of electronic drums
I came alive to the smouldering fire in your eyes
I love you now and I will til the day that I die
I was brought up to the sound of the synthesiser

SO I'm sitting minding my own business at the best bar in Greenpoint and this drum solo comes on the juke box and I'm thinking about that one part of Motley Crew's video for “Kickstart My Heart” where they use this famous rollover crash footage from a formula 1 race.

SO then guy asks me who the band is, like I'm some sort of youngster. I say Van Halen, and he goes “Eddy Van Halen.”

Van Halen's “Jump” used synthesizer, something that sounded a little wimpy back in the day. Now? Pure genius.

Aztec Camera's cover of Jump is pretty much a classic. I wish I had the version with the solo - its really fucked up. I don't know where to get it.

Now Diamond Dave is an Ambulance driver or is he?

There are unconfirmed reports that former Van Halen rocker David Lee Roth will take over for Howard Stern when Stern leaves for Sirius Satellite at the end of this year. The report came from SteppinOutMagazine publisher Chaunce Hayden, a Stern regular who claims “an Infinity source has confirmed the signing.”

I saw this very painting in the attic (walk-in), mostly completed, the background was missing, with the paint set still there
in 1963. There was a bust of Shakespeare lurking in the dark behind the chimney. Freaked me out in a double take. I think now, that it was the sense of ‘code’ that creeped me out. I thought, 'I could do that', without the lines and #'s.

I remember in school sitting around shooting the shit. Invariably someone would talk about painting by numbers, or using a projector, or they would use a projector and we would all say how stupid it was to rely on that, but that it would be a good tool.

Fast forward to now. I hate myself. I hate the muggy fucking New York miasmatic funk. I hate overpriced paintings and the people that fawn over them. I hate business culture. I hate the mall, suburbia, the upper east side, the upper west side, SoHO, Chelsea, East Village, West Village, WIlliamsburg, parts of Crown Heights, Caroll Gardens and the homogeneous breeders of all bouroughs and especially the ones that go to Bubbies in Tribeca.

damn this is good:
The Genoa-born artist Vanessa Beecroft - best known for her disturbing installations of living, almost nude, models - said she had had an affair with Cattelan before either became famous and that she was the source for many of his ideas.

“It was in 1990,” she said. "I worked in a gallery in Milan. All I really did was open and close the door. One day he turned up. I didn't know who he was and he tried to persuade me to steal the works in the gallery.

“Later he introduced himself and we saw each other for a period. I've always been infatuated with him. He gave me very beautiful presents, objects taken from the rubbish.”

fingers crossed no one wants to see anything get messy.

Goodnight, Goodnight
Sleep well my dear
No need to fear,

Before picking up at “Love is required…”

He has a powerful weapon,
He charges a million a shot
An assassin that's second to none,
The man with the golden gun

Lurking in some darkened doorway,
Or crouched on a rooftop somewhere,
In the next room, or this very one,
The man with the golden gun.

I'm the hayseed who almost gets everyone killed, but then jumps on a greanade and redeems muhself.

I go home missing some intestine and marry my childhood sweetheart, who designed the grenade that maimed me. We get in fights and stuff.

It all comes to a head when I stop a school shooting spree by grabbing a new non-lethal stun grenade the wife has been illegaly testing in the back fourty because no one supports her, not even me.

Well, she gets two years from the jury, but we both end up getting sweetheart deals in town on all our stuff because we're heroes.

Real heroes.

So I'm sipping a yahoo and looking at my new food processor that makes applesauce and stuff. Who knows what's going to happen next.

Mass hysteria is best countered through prevention or very early intervention. The most powerful tool is for a calm authority figure to give clear and accurate information repeatedly, and to remain visible and available to provide updates and reassurance. In contrast, a message that is dramatic and menacing, as in the Florida case, is guaranteed to have a catastrophic result.
