Apple Talk / Law of 5s Minor Incident #43383 - Pontypool
« on: January 06, 2013, 03:12:46 am »
This might not be super interesting, but I came across a guy who noticed that “Sandy Hook” is mentioned in the movie Pontypool, and believes that it’s an illuminati in-joke referencing the incident that happened recently.

http://fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/sandy-hook-reference-in-the-movie-pontypool/29860/  (I hope you have adblock.)

He could have taken the time to check that the real village of Pontypool has a real road called Sandy Hook, (and then he might have argued that the book - Pontypool Changes Everything - was purposefully set there when it was written 18 years ago as some kind of long running joke,) but what is ironic, is that the movie is about the law of fives, mind viruses, and making nonsensical links with language:

What does it mean? Well, Norman Mailer, he had an interesting theory that he used to explain the strange coincidences in the aftermath of the JFK assassination. In the wake of huge events, after them and before them, physical details they spasm for a moment; they sort of unlock and when they come back into focus they suddenly coincide in a weird way. Street names and birth dates and middle names, all kind of superfluous things appear related to each other. It's a ripple effect. So, what does it mean? Well... it means something's going to happen. Something big. But then, something's always about to happen.

Bring and Brag / No one has heard these before
« on: July 14, 2008, 03:33:53 am »
My PC is dead right now and I've been sifting through my 'music' (a.k.a me just fucking around with a MIDI keyboard and guitar) and there's stuff of which I'm the only person in the world has heard. I thought that was odd so I'm posting a few audio doodles. Nothing special but I had fun half making them and then going "ahhh fuck it" and leaving them inside my external disk.

mucky vicars - From June 2006. Turn your bass down, it's well messy. It would be fun to turn this into an actual song.

Org-rah - The last bit of music I made and it's from December 2007. Hardly any EQ work, boring stereo image, monotonous drums with overly aggressive compression. Actually, when it comes to mastering I'm lazy as fuck.

kul - I made this when I was 17.  :)  I'd just bought my first electric guitar and I think the crappy riff I was playing must have been subconciously ripped from a few places because it's so goddamn obvious. At 01:10 I got bored of the riff, mashed up the sample and electronically made something else of it.

The names are all bollocks because the tracks aren't about anything.

I can't write anything on this laptop because the sound device is terrible.  :sad:

For anyone interested in visual projects, here's a few programs which you might find useful. If you know of any more then please add them.

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / The Subconscious Art Of Graffiti Removal
« on: November 05, 2007, 07:46:00 am »
A short film which I thought might inspire here.

It's a satire that many people I've shown do not understand and usually reject it outright as "boring". Claiming that graffiti removal techniques are actually a new wave of modern art, the short goes on to explain that this is a direct consequence of our societal repression of aesthetic form within a functionally industrial urban landscape.

Unfortunately I can't find the clip on youtube anymore so it's going to have to be myspace video.  :cry: It's not the full film - only around a third of it. I don't know where you can see the full thing apart from on the DVD - Resfest Shorts: Volume 3.

Oh, and for the sake of throwing in another (but completely unrelated) Resfest short: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=JMvO7T5OpCs

Thought I'd share some of R. Buckminster Fuller's works which I've found online, mainly courtesy of the Buckminster Fuller Institute.
