Thinking about the Soverign Citizen and Tea Party movements gave me the idea - though I don't have any details worked out yet - for a story about an an evil, paralell-universe version of Robin Hood and the Merry Men (not just a version where they're merely regular bandits and tax cheats, one where they border on supervillany and retain an active anti-tax agenda). Again, no idea what the details of the story would be.
It starts with a personal letter from JP Morgan, stating that your account is up for review because PATRIOT ACT...

What's the difference between an original bill, a replica, and an Andy Warhol?


 :oops: Sorry, Yes is the answer to "What's the difference between an original bill, a replica, and an Andy Warhol?"
The difference is No, there is no difference in principle between these three items.
Then that meaningful difference between things is understood as the price exacted by their respective rates of exchange...  Wait...  I see what we just did there...

I just woke up and found this in my kitchen, courtesy of expired Mexican Librium, or something, whatever, I can't read French.  Note to self:  lock doors at night, hide golf clubs :lulz:


                    That's how donkeys gets the girls, see!

More pills here.

Getting old is balls.


Yes. It's kind of crap. And yet also kind of hilarious for reasons I cannot define or articulate.


Back on Ambien.  Only they call it something different now, because people paid attention to the side effects of Ambien, which is a happy name which should have no side effects other than the shitting of joy all over the immediate vicinity.  I've seen the commercials, people are almost as happy as they are in the commercials for getting your dick hard.  But it doesn't make you happy, no.  It makes you not CARE, which - despite certain superficial similarities - is a different ballgame altogether.

I don't believe in god, but I will use the concept against anyone who tries to fuck with my serenity.

Idea for short comedy skit: Dorian Gray has difficulty purchasing beer because the picture on his driver's license has aged but he himself hasn't
Just remember not to have any weed on you this time, Mnkay? :lulz:

Cool, imma gonna try that.  Noticed that my tracks with "auto-pan" have much more detailed presence...  Was also thinking about expanding repertoire of dedicated hardware instruments, like their occupying a discrete position in meat-space would somehow translate to sonic spectrum...  Ooh and on that note, just downloaded Metasynth demo, routing through sound flower, so currently fully functional, for now.  I think I'm having my third Aphex-Twin crush.

Day 3: During my lunch break, created new bassline up a fourth, and tried out an overlapping rhythm pattern.  Might need to thin in out a bit, leave some space.
I've been trying to focus on that recently, was doing some deep listening to the first track on Caustic Window, and it's like all the sounds fit together just right, with the right proportion of space so it can breathe - I always get a little eager and end up smothering things too much.  I don't know how to carve out all that negative space yet...  I was thinking 8-band eq, bandpass, and multi compression?

Aye means really, me Medz, Ye 'hurn's got nutn' do wit it :horrormirth:

It's not like actually seeing Ararat at the Angelica or anything, right: Transformers are always more than meets the eye.

[Ed., anyone catch last night's daily show, something about the correspondent's dinner court-jester... Totally unrelated, I think it's time for me to rest a little and sort out these impersonators ;]

It's the centry of armymen progress, right?

A Turkish politician who has been the Mayor of Ankara since 1994 is currently being sued after unveiling a 20-foot-tall metal robot in the city.

Taxpayers hit the roof when Mayor Melih Gökçek pulled the sheet off his Transformer-like masterpiece, saying it is an enormous waste of their money – and rightly so, as he blew a pretty big budget on it.

The off-the-wall mayor is now being sued by the Turkish Union of Engineers and Architects’ Chambers, who have described the robot as a ‘monstrosity’.

n 49853 1

After the public backlash, Gökçek simply replied ‘Respect the robot’, which surprisingly only made things worse.

Sustainable LARPing?  Sounds interesting, but how do you keep the larpers in the ground once you plant them there?

It's complicated, but essentially you build a feedback system that redirects the energy of their whining into forcing them deeper into the earth.

Protagonist enters racy relationship with girl he thought he used to know, but not really.  Soon he starts thinking she has an evil twin that sometimes tricks him into sleeping with her.  This scenario is facilitated by how her family is primarily composed of private sector ex-military plastic surgeons specializing in facial reconstruction.

Actually, the whole relationship is a set-up, to beta test how effective new procedures are at recreating semblances that are virtually indistinguishable from the original.  Turns out he was dating dozens of girls he thought to be the same, albeit somewhat moody, girl of good ol' southern country stock.  The results were very encouraging.

Protagonist finds himself at dinner, that, for some uncanny reason, he finds himself enjoying with /the/ top-dozen A-List of Hollywood actors, at the head of which he sits.  The conversation is, absurdly enough, about underwear, turning into a nightmare confessional of how many of them had slept with the same "model" girlfriend.

Things get worse as attention moves to our protagonist, and his date.  There is a hint that maybe she may have slept with at least one of the actors.  She turns to him and says "Honey, I have to tell you something..."  He then starts being debriefed on experiment and the actors confess to being impersonators themselves, with the added admonition that /he/ was the fool not to realize, or that, on some level, this is what he wanted.  It was a good ride, wasn't it?

Low rumbling noise in background starts getting louder, turning into sound of suction, drowning table conversation.  Protagonist POV rises, as though lifting off table - fade to white-ceiling.  Pump sounds morph to shrill ring-whistle-silence.  Then the first breath.   All plastic masks and tubes being torn off, seals broken:  Protagonist awakens to find himself being infact herself - the girl inside the dream.
