          What the.....? Misunderstanding Men        
It's really simple... Women speak subtle. Men do not.

It's that easy, you want a guy to know that you like him and you are interested in having him pursue and chase you, then you need to be less subtle...you don't want to be too obvious, but you need to be less subtle... Indiana

The above comment was left on my last post... You Say Potato, I Say Potato... Misunderstanding Men

And a few weeks ago Midwest posted about advice from Wombat on Kiss & Blog that goes as follows:

1. Don't initiate anything with a guy (not even friendship), ever
2. Don't initiate anything with a guy (not even friendship), ever
3. Don't initiate anything with a guy (not even friendship), ever


Is it any wonder that I am so totally ambivalent about dating!

I think I might do better becoming lesbionic... sigh....

She can sing, she can dance and she can definitely act. Kelli Berglund stars in Disney XD's hit series "Lab Rats" as Bree, one out of three bionic siblings. She stars alongside Billy Unger, Spencer Boldman, who play Chase and Adam respectively, as her super powered siblings. The series follows their lives as their creator's stepson Leo (Tyrel Jackson) discovers them in an underground lab, and introduces them to the real world.

Starpulse had the opportunity to learn more about "Lab Rats", her cast-mates and Kelli herself in an interview with Kelli.

Starpulse: What were your thoughts when you found out that you were cast as Bree?

Kelli: I was ecstatic! I really loved the character and worked really hard throughout the auditioning process. I felt so blessed to have been given this opportunity.

S: What is your favorite memory with the cast of 'Lab Rats'?

K: We have so many fun memories! One of my favorites, though, would have to be when we all watched the premiere of the show together in a huge screening room at Paramount Studios. It was amazing watching all of our hard work finally pay off, and seeing it together made it that much more exciting.

S: What is the cast of 'Lab Rats' like?

K: The cast is literally my second family. All of us have become so close and we all get a long so well. I always know that whenever I'm on set, they're going to put a smile on my face.

S: What is a typical day for you like?

K: A typical day for me is usually being on set, doing schoolwork, and sleeping! I have to wake up super early to drive to the set, and once I arrive, I have to do several hours of school. After that, I'll have rehearsal or I'll begin shooting depending on whether it's a filming day. After having fun on set all day, I'll completely crash on the drive home!

S: What are some Disney channel shows that you watched when you were younger?

K: A big favorite of mine was "That's So Raven." I also really loved "Lizzie McGuire" and "The Proud Family."

S: Is there any Disney star that you look up to?

K: I really admire Debby Ryan. I began watching her on "The Suite Life on Deck," and since then, I've actually become friends with her. She's such a sweet person and has an amazing head on her shoulders. She gives off such a happy glow that everyone loves to be around her!

S: What are your plans for the near future?

K: I hope to continue filming "Lab Rats" for several more seasons, and from there, continue what I love doing... acting!

S: Tell us a fun fact about you.

K: Most people don't know that I'll eat anything spicy. A little extra kick is always a good thing!

S: Who is your celebrity crush?

K: Liam Hemsworth! He is so adorable.

S: If you could be a cartoon character, which would it be?

K: I've always wanted to be Blossom from "The Powerpuff Girls." Being a super hero, saving the world... I guess I'm living the dream, but as Bree!

          Motoin.de и Motorama.it: Почта России против EMS        
Я уже говорил тебе, что такое безумие?
Безумие — это повторение одного и того же действия.
Безумие — это Почта России.


Второй раз делюсь опытом заказа из зарубежных интернет-магазинов. В этот раз Motorama изначально показала себя не с самой лучшей стороны, но… как всегда, есть пресловутое НО!


Про выбор магазина для заказа защиты я рассказывал после получения первой посылки в этом посте.

Изначально я рассчитывал, что экип беру исключительно на себя, беру мотоцикл и откатываю сезон без второго номера, но как-то внезапно это мнение поменялось, и решили заказывать экипировку сразу на двоих, пока была финансовая возможность. С мотоциклом, правда, на этот сезон обломилось, но ничего, перетерпим, хоть мопед остался, не успел я его продать =)

Выбор защиты

Здесь описывается то, что именно заказывал и причины такого выбора, кому интересна сама механика процесса заказа – пролистывайте ниже смело!

Учитывая, что опыт использования экипировки отсутствует как таковой, мотоцикл планируется двойного назначения (Suzuki Djebel), то экипировка заказывается из всех классов предназначения по принципу «подходит по цене, понравилась с виду, нормальные отзывы», а там будем разбираться, насколько в ней удобно на планируемом мотоцикле.

В этот раз для себя планировал заказывать:
Колени (выбор пал на Dainese Knee V, как одни из самых универсальных, и на которых очень много положительных отзывов)


Перчатки (захотелось мне Knox, хоть и спортивные, но…надо ж с чего-то начинать. Handroid не очень нравится своим «экзоскелетом», выбор пал на модель Biomech)


Джерси (для совсем уж жарких дней поверх черепахи – выбор был исключительно по принципу «по дизайну нравится», остановился на Scott 450)


Балаклава (она же подшлемник. Без подшлемника уже неудобно, тот, что я покупал за 200р в том сезоне уже, такое ощущение, стал на пару размеров больше, плюс с подшлемником дико начинает потеть визор, постоянно приходится открывать на светофорах. Выбор пал на Held Spyder, подкупил сеточкой на носу и ушах, может, потеть меньше будет)


Дождевик (также опыта особо нет, выбирался из того, что есть в наличии в названных магазинах и не слишком дорого (ну не готов я сейчас выложить больше 50 евро за дождевик, да и не для дальняков, на мопеде-то). Будет Ixon Neon)


Рюкзак (на текущий момент использую очень редко обычный рюкзак (на мопеде вместительный багажник+кофр+крючок под рулем, на мотоцикле такого не будет, потому выбирался не особо маленький по объему (что уже редкость)). Выбрал Acerbis Shadow на 38 литров)


Для супруги решили заказать пока необходимый минимум:
Черепаха (женских моделей не так много, остановились на «классике» Alpinestars Bionic Stella 2)


Боты (изначально заказывались Sidi Fusion Lei, но пришлось сменить на Alpinestars Stella S-MX5, причины будут ниже)


Колени (те же Dainese Knee V)

Перчатки (визуально понравились Revit Chevron Ladies, их и решили заказывать)


Балаклава (выбор пал на Dainese Summer WS)


Отсюда начинается непосредственно описание заказов с комментариями и датами.

Встал вопрос, откуда все это добро заказывать. С Fc-moto мне заочно работать не хочется, причины описывал в посте про выбор магазинов. Выбор остался между Motorama, которая в первый раз сработала вполне корректно и приятно, и Motoin, с которым сам еще не связывался, но отзывы были неплохие. В итоге пришлось бить на 2 заказа, по одному с магазина, потому что в мотораме нет необходимого рюкзака и Knox’ов в общем, а в ассортименте Motoin отсутствует такая фирма как Alpinestars и закончились колени Dainese. В итоге заказы выглядели следующим образом:

Motoin.de


Motorama.it


Перед заказом (что рекомендую делать и всем заказывающим) лучше связаться с магазином и уточнить наличие интересующих товаров, несмотря на статусы в интернет-магазине «in stock», «available» и тому подобные. Практически во всех крупных магазинах есть свой склад, но проставляя статус «в наличии» зачастую подразумевается более громоздкое понятие «в наличии на складе фирмы-производителя/поставщика», и, как следствие, возможны накладки и отсутствие необходимого вам товара.

В случае с Motoin проще общаться посредством «обратной связи» на сайте, отвечают довольно быстро и корректно. С Motorama проще делать заказ (я делал заказ для оплаты по PayPal) и в комментариях к нему прописывать вопросы до проведения оплаты, на чем я и обжегся.

Итак, даты и факты:

Motoin.de

13.04
— Добрый день! Я хочу приобрести несколько товаров в вашем магазине. Можете ли вы подсказать, есть ли эти товары в необходимых размерах на вашем складе?
*перечисление товаров и размеров*
Если все товары в наличии, и вы подтверждаете это, я оплачу послезавтра. Если чего-то нет, я изменю товар в заказе на другой или удалю его из списка.


15.04
— Здравствуйте, Сергей
Рюкзак — готов к отправке через 5-7 рабочих дней
Балаклавы — 3-5 дней
Перчатки Revit — 3-5 дней
Перчатки Knox — доступны в текущий момент
Джерси — доступна в данный момент
Дождевик — доступен в данный момент.
Все товары доступны на складах, ждем вашего заказа. Хорошего дня.


15.04
Произведена оплата, на почту пришло автоматическое письмо с перечислением товара, благодарностью за заказ и заверениями, что как только, так сразу все будет отправлено.

16.04
Пришло письмо, что мой аккаунт повышен в должности до «постоянного покупателя», за что полагаются скидки на некоторые товары. Мелочь, а приятно.

22.04
— Добрый день. Подскажите, когда мой заказ будет сформирован и отправлен?

23.04
Извините за задержку, но мы ждем рюкзак от Асербиса, который обещают в течение 3-4 дней
(кстати, после моего заказа статус у этого рюкзака сменился на «недоступен» (снят с производства))

26.04
Автоматическое письмо с информацией об изменении статуса заказа на «отправлен».

27.04
Автоматическое письмо с ссылками на DHL и трек-номером для отслеживания посылки. На сайте DHL указан Российский код, по которому стало ясно, что действительно доставка будет обычной почтой, а не EMS'ом, как и писал zaki в своем вопросе.

Отправление появилось в трекинге на сайте Почты России, и потянулись дни ожидания…

Motorama.it

13.04
Формирую заказ с оплатой через PayPal, не оплачиваю. Далее общение идет в комментариях к заказу.
— Добрый день. Я хочу приобрести эти товары, но мне нужно подтверждение наличия до оплаты. Последний раз (в январе) вы помогли мне с этим. Есть ли у вас какие-то скидки для прошлых покупателей? Если вы ответите по наличию, я оплачу послезавтра (и нужны реквизиты для платежа). Если чего-то нет на складе, я поменяю позицию на другую. Спасибо. С наилучшими пожеланиями.

18.04
— Добрый день. Что по моим вопросам?

22.04
— Здравствуйте! Вы заинтересованы в моем заказе? Почему вы не отвечаете?

27.04
— Здравствуйте. Простите за ожидание (мы заинтересованы в вашем заказе), но у нас есть некоторые проблемы с логистикой, и нам необходимо больше времени, чтобы удовлетворить ваш запрос. Я подтверждаю, что наколенники и черепаха в наличии, но боты отсутствуют на складе, мы заказываем их от производителя (кажется, мы сможем привезти их через несколько дней).

27.04
И тут я делаю ошибку, не додавив их по поводу наличия, устав от ожидания, тем более, зная, что из Германии уже пошла посылка, да и в прошлый раз не было проблем с ботами Sidi, которые заказывал для себя.
— Ок, давайте реквизиты для платежа в PayPal, я оплачу. Надеюсь, заказ будет сформирован как можно быстрее, и это не займет много времени. У вас нет дисконтной системы для покупателей?

29.04
-Я отправила вам платежные реквизиты и прошу сообщить об оплате, т.к. я буду посылать заказ на склад. Я сделала для вас скидку 25% от розничной цены. Теперь черепаха стоит 124 евро, боты — 105, наколенники — 32 за каждый комплект.

Скидка сделана именно с розничной цены магазина, без учета вычета налога VAT, но в целом более выгодно для меня: с доставкой заказ выходит 374,40 евро вместо 407,40 без скидки. А 33 евро — сумма вполне не лишняя =) Но чем дальше — тем страшнее, как в сказке…

30.04
— Спасибо за скидку! Я оплатил, код операции — ***. Жду посылку.

06.05
— Что с моим заказом? Статус не меняется: Paypal (not performed). Почему вы так медленны? =(

06.05
— Мы искренне приносим извинения, но боты оказались с дефектом, и мы ждем большую партию от производителя. Но они будут доступны лишь в конце июня. Если хотите, можно сменить с большей скидкой на модели: Spidi VS-1 (128€) или Alpinestars Stella S-MX5 (168€)


06.05
— Боты Sidi в другом цвете (черно-белые) отсутствуют тоже?

09.05
Если вы не можете отправить боты Sidi, смените их на боты Alpinestars Stella S-MX5, пожалуйста. Цвет — черный, размер 37. Мне нужна эта посылка скорее. Заказ и так занял слишком много времени.

13.05
— Что с моим заказом? Я уже устал ждать...

14.05
— Мы проверили боты Sidi, но они недоступны в 38 размере любого цвета. S-MX5 приходят в конце недели в размере 37. Я понимаю, что вы устали ждать, может быть, мы вернем вам стоимость бот и отправим остальное? Отправить сможем уже завтра утром.

14.05
— Мне нет резона возвращать сумму только за боты, доставка дорогая и покупка не будет выгодной. Если вы сможете отправить посылку на этой неделе — я жду, если нет — лучше вернуть полную сумму. Я надеюсь, что вы сможете.

14.05
— Боты Alpinestars 37 размера придут только в черно-белом цвете, в черном такие будут только 03.06. Сообщите, что нам сделать.

14.05
— Ок, пусть это будут Alpinestars S-MX5 Woman, черно-белые, 37 размер. Надеюсь, что на этот раз все будет нормально.

17.05
Прислан трек-номер итальянской курьерской службы SDA и трек-номер EMS (в прошлый раз был только номÐ

Most of you know Richard Anderson as either Oscar Goldman on The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman, Lieutenant Steve Drumm on the final season of Perry Mason, or Dr. Richard Malcolm, the title character in The Night Strangler. But scroll down the list of Richard’s credits, and you’ll find that he not only appeared in some of the most iconic films of all time—including Forbidden Planet, Seven Days in May, John Frankenheimer’s Seconds, Martin Ritt’s The Long, Hot Summer and Stanley Kubrick’s Paths of Glory—but either worked with, got to know or otherwise crossed paths with some of the most iconic names in motion picture history… one of whom, by the way, played a pivotal role very early in Richard’s career.

Richard talks about these and other key moments in his life in Richard Anderson: At Last… A Memoir—a book that goes behind the scenes of his years as a contract player with MGM, while also revealing some interesting things about the actor that you probably never knew before. Our June 2015 conversation with Richard Anderson will air during in our second hour. Co-hosting the hour will be actor, writer and film historian Alan Doshna. A contributor to such publications as Filmfax magazine, and the associate producer of the documentary The Haunted World of Edward D. Wood Jr., Al was the collaborator on Richard Anderson: At Last… A Memoir.

The first hour of this week’s program will include a replay of our June 2016 conversation with Jimmy Weldon. The voice of Yakky Doodle on Yogi Bear, which continues to air on Cartoon Network and Boomerang, Jimmy also hosted one of the very first local children’s TV shows, The Webster Webfoot Show, which originated in Dallas and aired for many years in Los Angeles and in Fresno. Some of you may remember Jimmy from his many appearances on such classic TV shows as Dallas and The Rockford Files.

Jimmy Weldon has also been one of the country’s leading motivational speakers for more than four decades. He shares many of his ideas in his book, Go Get ’Em Tiger, a part autobiographical, part motivational book that shows that the real definition of success is becoming the person you want to be and doing what you really want to do.

She can sing, she can dance and she can definitely act. Kelli Berglund stars in Disney XD's hit series "Lab Rats" as Bree, one out of three bionic siblings. She stars alongside Billy Unger, Spencer Boldman, who play Chase and Adam respectively, as her super powered siblings. The series follows their lives as their creator's stepson Leo (Tyrel Jackson) discovers them in an underground lab, and introduces them to the real world.

Starpulse had the opportunity to learn more about "Lab Rats", her cast-mates and Kelli herself in an interview with Kelli.

Starpulse: What were your thoughts when you found out that you were cast as Bree?

Kelli: I was ecstatic! I really loved the character and worked really hard throughout the auditioning process. I felt so blessed to have been given this opportunity.

S: What is your favorite memory with the cast of 'Lab Rats'?

K: We have so many fun memories! One of my favorites, though, would have to be when we all watched the premiere of the show together in a huge screening room at Paramount Studios. It was amazing watching all of our hard work finally pay off, and seeing it together made it that much more exciting.

S: What is the cast of 'Lab Rats' like?

K: The cast is literally my second family. All of us have become so close and we all get a long so well. I always know that whenever I'm on set, they're going to put a smile on my face.

S: What is a typical day for you like?

K: A typical day for me is usually being on set, doing schoolwork, and sleeping! I have to wake up super early to drive to the set, and once I arrive, I have to do several hours of school. After that, I'll have rehearsal or I'll begin shooting depending on whether it's a filming day. After having fun on set all day, I'll completely crash on the drive home!

S: What are some Disney channel shows that you watched when you were younger?

K: A big favorite of mine was "That's So Raven." I also really loved "Lizzie McGuire" and "The Proud Family."

S: Is there any Disney star that you look up to?

K: I really admire Debby Ryan. I began watching her on "The Suite Life on Deck," and since then, I've actually become friends with her. She's such a sweet person and has an amazing head on her shoulders. She gives off such a happy glow that everyone loves to be around her!

S: What are your plans for the near future?

K: I hope to continue filming "Lab Rats" for several more seasons, and from there, continue what I love doing... acting!

S: Tell us a fun fact about you.

K: Most people don't know that I'll eat anything spicy. A little extra kick is always a good thing!

S: Who is your celebrity crush?

K: Liam Hemsworth! He is so adorable.

S: If you could be a cartoon character, which would it be?

K: I've always wanted to be Blossom from "The Powerpuff Girls." Being a super hero, saving the world... I guess I'm living the dream, but as Bree!

          Model With Bionic Arm Breaks Fashion Barriers        

Rebekah Marine is the bionic model.

Born with Symbrachydactyly, a congenital abnormality that results in missing or malformed hands and limbs, Marine is missing her right forearm. But she’s never considered it a disability—only a difference. And now she’s using that difference to not only make a big splash in the world of fashion, but to break through the barriers which typically inform the way we look at those with visible disabilities.

          Chasing Rainbows: The Quest to Understand Light        
Is it a particle? Or is it a wave? This week we're looking at light. From its earliest origins and what it can reveal about the Big Bang, to why Newton prodded his eye with a needle to probe the origins of colour, how the brain decodes the visual world and bionic implants to reverse blindness. Plus, in the news, a revelation in the remarkable colour-changing capabilities of chameleons, how an ultrasound can combat Alzheimer's Disease, and what people do with their fingers following a handshake...
          Imaging the Invisible        
This week, how immune cells can be caught on camera as they exit blood vessels, a new design of lensless microscope and one that sees cells in 3D, how sound and heat can be used to find faults in materials and how something as small as an atom can be seen under an electron microscope. Plus, news that nerve transplants can correct metabolic disorders, the World's first fishhook, bionic contact lenses that project emails into your eyes, are statins safe and why are mirror reflections still blurry close up for the shortsighted...
          Building Bodies and Mending Broken Hearts        
This week we find out about bionic bodies. We discover whether it's possible to mend a broken heart with stem cells as well as investigate if soft nanobots could soon be delivering drugs around our bodies. We also bring you the highlights from this years British Science Festival. Plus, in Kitchen Science, we hit the kitchen to investigate one of natures composite materials - a chicken bone!
          Kat's Best Bits        
This week, Kat Arney has been through the archives and picked out her personal Naked highlights, including making experimental jelly, sneezing at computer screens, stabbing potatoes and Ben dancing (badly) in the studio. She looks back on advances in cancer therapy, developments in making people bionic and how new diseases emerge, as well as reliving the chance to meet Alan Titchmarsh, for a chat about the importance of ponds. Plus, we have a brand new bit of the Naked Scientists, where we're looking at Chemistry in its element.
          Droid Bionic Shows Up In Best Buy's System - In Stock September 7th, Ready For September 8th Release?        

imageSince Verizon still wouldn't officially give up the upcoming Droid Bionic's release date, all we've had to chew on so far were rumors of the September 8th release date here and there (the latter was then discredited as an unofficial account by VZW, so it really has no credibility anymore).

To throw another rumor into the fire, one that seems to corroborate all the previous rumors, today the folks at Droid Attic dug up what seems to be an image of Best Buy's internal system showing the Bionic in stock on September 7th.

          The Incentive to Innovate        
One of the things I still marvel at is the way Capitalism drives technological progress. The AEI has a wonderful article up at their website written by Mark J. Perry about the advances in energy efficiency for various house-hold appliances stressing this point. While efficiency and quality of the product have increased cost relative to inflation has actually decreased.

Source: http://www.aei-ideas.org
Thanks to ongoing advances in energy-saving technologies, the chart above shows the significant increases in the energy efficiency of five common home appliances based on historical data that were just released by the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) for the years 1981 to 2011. Those improvements in energy efficiency translate into significant energy cost savings for American households. According to a press release from the AHAM, U.S. consumers could save $90 per year on average if they replaced their 10-year old refrigerator, clothes washer and dishwasher with today’s energy efficient models. The savings from lower operating costs would be even greater when comparing today’s modern models to the appliances of 20 or 30 years ago.
Advances don't stop at the home, of course, anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of history will understand how valuable the Free Market has been in every single field from entertainment to medicine. MRIs, CT Scans, artificial limbs, bionic contact lenses, Deep Sea Submarines...the list of innovations is as extensive as it is impressive.

We innovate to increase productivity and to please consumers. We move forward because in Capitalism there's no profit in standing still.

Just look at the technological challenges that have been overcome because of our beloved system of economics. At the turn of the century in America Private Businesses spent over a hundred billion dollars to ensure no repercussions were felt from the much-feared Y2K bug. That was more than ten to one what the US Government spent.

In 2004 the first Privately-funded manned space flight took place. We're entering into an era not unlike science fiction and it's hard not to be a little optimistic.

          Flashlight Morphs into Floodlight        
My LORD knows I keep moving the beam of my flashlight to find His footprints. 

I want to follow His lead and keep up with His plan of progress for my life.

He knows I'm living in a world darkened by sin and it's hard to see.

This week I caught a glimpse of the intense journey ahead.

It started the day I shoveled some snow. Nothing out of the ordinary for winter in Maine.

I didn't do much, but I came inside and I was hurting.

At first it was a vague discomfort. That night my lower back started to ache.

By the next morning it earned the title pain and I applied heat to relax the muscles. 

Three days later I had to admit I was in trouble. My lower left side felt the same way it had before my hip was replaced. The whole area was deteriorating and I was having trouble walking. My mind began to spin with the possibility that I'd injured my bionic implant. 

Then what?  =8-O

The next day I gave in and called my surgeon's office. He returned my call and, from what I was telling him, he said I likely strained my back. I did as he directed, applying ice and heat, and taking an anti-inflammatory. 

My mind started to stew over possible scenarios. I'd lifted too much weight and pulled something apart. I'd reached out too far and loosened the screw holding in the socket. Or maybe I slightly dislocated the whole joint. Each one was more dreadful than the previous.

Three days later I had to take action. I reported that the symptoms were continuing and set an appointment to be seen. Three days later still I drove to the doctor's office. From one dark thought to the next the pain became a monster ready to devour my life. 

I was sure that any problems with the bionic device, even a small one, would mean more surgery. More surgery would mean repeating the recovery process. More downtime would mean I'd have to cancel my plans, especially my Spring Tour. More forced isolation would mean feeling helpless again. More inactivity, especially after such a remarkably speedy recovery, would lead to nothing but disappointment and fester into hopelessness. 

I was convinced of every single detail.

Right there on Route 89, before I'd even gotten to the office I was caught in a death spiral. My world had closed in. Nothing but negative, even dire, possibilities remained open to me. 

If you've been following this adventure with me in any other places, you'll know how the appointment went. After extensive x-rays and a thorough examination I got a resounding message that the implant is fine. The conclusion is that I wrenched my back, causing the muscle memory to repeat the way it responded to my deteriorated hip. The tightness and spasms, awkwardness and instability were all a product of confused physical connections.

Are you with me?

The x-rays and the confidence of the doctor in what we were seeing brought my crazy-making mind to a halt. On my way out of the office I started willing my posture to be straight and my stride secure. There was a bit of stretching, but it felt good. My wild thoughts were dismissed by the facts. By the end of that day, without a single physical therapy appointment as prescribed, most of the pain and discomfort were gone. 

I considered that reality as I climbed into bed 10 long days after I moved that bit of snows. The transformation was striking. I wondered what this experience might have to do with the rest of my life. It's a question I ask myself often. Maybe that's what pastor's wives do through a life of sermon illustrations.

Whatever the reason, that's when the floodlight came on.

What if the crazy-making process is a habit?

What if every time I/we participate in it, we're actually crippling ourselves with our own thoughts? 

What if it would only take a serious look at the facts to dissolve the emotional, psychological, spiritual pain we put ourselves through?

Now THOSE are some answers to ponder.

More importantly, what if God delivered these circumstances to alert me/us to behavior that is stealing our joy? And He wants us content, fully enfolded in His arms.

In case you are caught in this dynamic, or have a friend who is (ahem), feel free to borrow my strategy. 

Habit Busting Tactics

1. Ask Holy Spirit to wave a red flag at me when my mind is pulled in a wayward direction.

2. Respond immediately by shaking myself, turning away from the destructive behavior and toward the LORD.

3. Build a replacement habit by putting a Godward activity in its place, such as remembering who He is and how He loves me, reciting or meditating on Scripture, singing meaningful spiritual songs.

If this is all news to you, praise God for His gracious gift and share this with others.
If you too are being challenged in this area, what will you do to win the victory?

          My Hip is Too Square        

Hello, Fireflies!


Children of the '80's, you're welcome for the earworm.

I always tell people that I came into this world backwards, and things just got weirder from there.

The truth is, I did come into this world bottom first! I was folded over, and they pulled me out by my heiney.  I always feel bad for my mom when I tell that story.

In the process, my hip became dislocated, and no one noticed until I started walking.. and I was a little lopsided.  By then, it was too late to just stick my leg back in to the socket, so my folks found a doctor who would reconstruct my hip when I was about 18 months old.

I guess I knew it wouldn't last forever, and it has been giving me more and more trouble.  I saw an X-Ray of it yesterday, and the joint is all squished and jaggedy, and doesn't look much like a hip joint anymore!  It explains why I can barely sit at my computer for a few minutes at a time, and I'm using a cane to walk.  It's one of the reasons I've been slow to get back to business. 

I finally saw a surgeon who will replace my hip for me... in a few months... so I'm going to bite the bullet and get a laptop so that I can get back to blogging.  I've missed it, and y'all!  I'm still out there trying new things, and I'm even working on organizing my makeup collection, so there are things to share with y'all, and I love hearing about what inspires you.  In the meantime, I continue to announce things on Twitter, share things that inspire me on my Facebook page, and post snapshots of my life on Instagram.

Anyone out there gone bionic?

          Energizer MK2 UW Boxer        
Energizer MK2 UW Boxer

Energizer MK2 UW Boxer

The X-Bionic Energizer MK2 UW Boxer is a mid-compression boxer short with optimised climate and comfort control. X-Bionic says: REDUCE SWEAT, DON'T PREVENT IT. For automobile owners, the "MK" marking system may just mean a simple model number. For the team of developers, though, these two letters alone represent months or even years of painstaking work and innumerable tests.   The strategic focus is not just the design, but rather is more performance enhancements of the product: More horsepower, larger capacity, better chassis. In the end, of course, it's all about higher speeds and better safety. That's exactly the philosophy of X-BIONIC.   Superior products, like the BIONIC Energizer, aren't just replaced, rather they are constantly improved. Our Swiss textile engineers needed months and months in the research laboratory together with our performance athletes. They focused mostly on the athlete, not on the product. How can we better support athletes in their endeavours? In the end, you could hardly recognize the BIONIC Energizer anymore: a much larger 3D-BionicSphere System, newly defined ventilation chambers, better joint protection.


          Energizer Summerlight Tone UW Slip        
Energizer Summerlight Tone UW Slip

Energizer Summerlight Tone UW Slip

The Energizer Summerlight Tone lightweight underwear provides excellent support and climate control for sports and everyday use. X-Bionic says: LESS WEIGHT, MORE ENERGY. Controlling sweat is good. Taking advantage of it is even better. The Energizer Summerlight distributes the sweat precisely where it belongs - namely, over a wide surface and directly on the skin. The body's cooling is optimised, the athlete needs less energy for temperature regulation, and performance ability increases. If there is no sweat being produced, the action changes. Insulating air is stored and the systems serves to warm. Lighter than its big brother, the Bionic Energizer, it still offers the same technology: Cools when you sweat, and warms when you freeze.

And below are my predictions for this year's Emmys in those same marquee categories. I'm going out on a limb and giving the Academy the benefit of the doubt that there won't be a bunch of repeats from last year or previous years -- save for Viola Davis because of her submission, possible vote split between Moss of The Handmaid's Tale and Globe/SAG winner Foy of The Crown, her Oscar win earlier this year and because she's Viola Davis.

          2017 Anniversary Seasons: 70th, 60th, 50th, 40th, 30th, 20th and 10th        
NBC's Meet the Press has been on the air since 1947 and is
celebrating its 70th Anniversary this year. The Beltway show
 is the longest-running program in the history of television --
spanning most of the medium's entire existence.

2017 marks the 70th Anniversary of NBC's Meet the Press -- the longest running program in the history of televison. But it isn't the only TV program with a 2017 anniversary. Below is a listing by decade of programs celebrating 70th, 60th, 50th, 40th, 30th, 20th and 10th Anniversaries in 2017.

Some shows are very familiar and others are far more obscure. The benchmark is my own familiarity with a program -- the sole qualification for making this listing.

An asterisk denotes a midseason debut and red text indicates a single season program -- but only those which made it into a new year before its cancellation. Otherwise, a short-run is so indicated by the time of the year in which it aired:

Mary Kay and Johnny, Dumont/CBS/NBC (1947-1950)

1957-1958

          Miniature Actuation Solutions for Steeper’s bebionic hand        

Sales of the latest version of the bebionic hand are exceeding expectations at Steeper and Reliance is delighted to be continuing its strong supplier relationship with one of the world's leading prosthetics companies as the bebionic range expands.

Following on from its involvement in the design and manufacture of the original bebionic hand Reliance has continued to provide design support to Steeper during the 12 month development programme for the new small hand.

For use by a female or teenager the latest hand has been designed to provide the same level of functionality as the original hand but lighter and in a smaller space envelope.  The design has been undertaken by Steeper's engineering team with Reliance acting as an industrialisation partner, giving feedback on the design in terms of manufacturability and commercial profile and providing prototype parts as the design progressed.

Reliance supplies the finger actuation for the hand, providing a complete gear and leadscrew assembly, incorporating parts based on its catalogue product range including modified catalogue gears, manufactured by Reliance, together with a standard leadscrew and special, modified leadscrew nut.

The design aim was to bring the original bebionic hand into a smaller space envelope, so the design of Reliance's finger actuators is similar to the previous…

          Reliance Exhibits at MEDTEC 2011        

Reliance Precision Mechatronics (RPM) will be exhibiting its range of components and assemblies at MEDTEC, the UK's medical technology and manufacturing exhibition, to be held at the NEC.  Products will include leadscrews, couplings, gears, and slides.

A major feature at this year's exhibition is RPM's latest product integration capability, demonstrated by RSL Steeper's bebionic prosthetic hand, the finger and thumb actuators of which are supplied by RPM.

The specialist manufacturing capabilities of RPM's parent company, Reliance Precision Limited, will also be featured, including recently expanded cleanroom facilities, dedicated to opto-mechanical assembly.

Visit Reliance Precision Mechatronics at MEDTEC, April 6-7 2011, stand 1321.

 


          Reliance Showcases bebionic Hand At MEDTEC 2011        

Reliance Precision Mechatronics is proud to feature the RSL Steeper bebionic hand at this year's MEDTEC exhibition. This represents the very latest leading-edge technology in the field of prosthetics and demonstrates Reliance's expertise and adaptability in providing customised mechatronic components and integrated assemblies.

Reliance has worked closely with RSL Steeper through the development phase, specifically in the design and manufacture of the finger and thumb actuators. The bebionic hand is fully articulating, with multiple grip patterns, so the challenge has been to achieve the optimum efficiency between speed, power and noise, for the necessary hand flexibility, as well as meeting the weight and size constraints. A thorough technical understanding of the relationship between these requirements has been fundamental to the successful result.

Reliance's design and manufacturing expertise has been called upon to industrialise RSL Steeper's design concept, with rapid manufacturing of development samples to validate the design process. The building blocks have been taken from Reliance's catalogue of mechatronic components, providing the essential gears, leadscrew and nut. These have been adapted to suit the specific requirements of this project, with design engineering to integrate the piece-parts and provide a custom assembly.

          Funky On The Rocks - Sunbathing Under The Full Moon        
This is the kind of beach life my introvert self delights in. Away from the masses, just me and the ocean. These rocks formed this kind of natural lagoon there at the beach of Torre Melissa, Calabria. A still pool at the otherwise often slightly stormy sea. Strangely enough, there weren't many people up there on the rocks. Then again, it was early in the season and the majority of people at the beach were families. So maybe that changed by now. The locals told me it starts to get full after the 15th of July.

Sitting on the rocks at the beach of Torre Melissa wearing boho elephant harem pants and a Free People tank top | Funky Jungle - Mindful fashion, life & quirky personal style blog

Which is why I had the opportunity to play Funky on the Rocks all by myself and enjoy the view over the ocean and the sky adorned with an almost full moon rising early. The Moon and the sea are intimately linked, even tho the Mediterranean Sea doesn't have as high a tide like the more open oceans. Sometimes you may hear it doesn't have a tide, but that's not entirely true. It is just pretty insignificant to those you can experience at the Atlantic for example, or the ones I saw at the North Sea in my youth, where the ocean retreats considerably during low tide.




These Elephant Print Harempants were such a good fashion companion during my beach vacation, other than being my pants fo choice for the road trip. I cannot repeat enough how comfortable they are. But the coolest thing? You can pull them up and wear them as a jumpsuit!

Another great style buddy was this bikini top that did double duty as a fancy bralette for me on this trip down south. And really, I liked it so much as bralette, it's going with me to Germany as well. So I imagine you are going to see it again sometime, soon.

And in case you haven't been following me on Instagram, here's also a close up look at my latest tattoo. Originally I had a different kind of moon planned, a lot smaller and different placement too, but after a last minute discussion with my husband I decided on this one instead. Very pleased with how it turned out. Now I guess I can be a Moon Child too.

          Comprehensive list of 980+ Free WordPress 1.5 and 2.0 Themes / Templates available for download        

Those that support sidebar widgets are labeled as: includes wordpress widgets supportThemes which I have tested as also working with WordPress 2.0+ are labeled as: tested with WordPress 2.0

Note that most wordpress 1.5 themes are likely to work with wordpress 2.0 unless they require specific plugins to work properly (in which case they’ll only work if the required/included plugins ALSO work with wordpress 2.0+)

WordPress 1.5+ uses a system that takes the template to the next level –WordPress themes. Not only are there many wordpress themes which are freely available to download and use in your own blog, but you can use Ryan Boren’s ThemeSwitcher plugin to allow your weblog visitors to change your blog’s wordpress theme on the fly (which is pretty darn cool) (and yes, the ThemeSwitcher does work with WordPress 1.5+ even tho it was originally designed for 1.3)

Since I had to search all over the place to try to find WordPress templates (er, themes), I figured I’d save you all the time and maintain a list here of every single WordPress Theme I could find. I also tried to specify the rare WordPress themes with a three column layout. Make sure to bookmark this page, as I’ll be updating it regularly as more free wordpress themes become available.

Tremendous thanks to the authors who spent so much time putting together these wonderful WordPress themes. If you have (or know of) WordPress themes that I’ve missed, please email them to howtoblog (at) gmail.com or leave a comment about it. (Same goes if your theme is listed here and you want it removed).

Today in a supermarket, aged 24, upon discovering a shocking sense of nostalgia at seeing the reboot of Bionicle - followed by large amounts of googling resulting in ending up on this page, I realised that I am an AFOL who has just left the Dark Ages. I'm currently off work with my foot in bandage so now's the perfect time to buy some LEGO and play the **** out of it! I'm thinking of kicking this clearly expensive fad off with 42038. But 60078 looks pretty nice too. Decisions!

          Blanche on a larger canvas...        


A little while back John was in the studio with his latest painting project, the new Forgeworld Cursed Ettin and I was suitably impressed and intrigued. This was something rather different from John: a monstrous figure. Okay, possibly a poor choice of words as John is rather gifted at making monstrous out of even human sized figures but this was on a much larger scale and on a figure with a rather different sculpting style...

The Cursed Ettin model is a figure sculpted by the enormously talented Edgar Skomorowski who slaves away in the Warhammer Forge section of Forgeworld. He tends towards a more sculptural style than the very graphic rendering employed by the sculptors in the Design Studio. The Ettin has an incredible level of texture in it's skin, rather like an Elephant's, which John saw as rather a challenge. His normal painting style is to paint texture on rather as he would in 2d and he uses paint rather thicker than most mini painters. Both of these factors needed weighing up in painting the Ettin.

The skin started with a basecoat of mostly white with a little orange and snakebite leather added. John followed this with a wash of nut brown ink to pick up the incredible textural detail. The skin was then re-highlighted adding yet more white to build the contrast and then more shading painted into the recesses with the ink mixed with a little black. Then repeated extra shadows with a mix of orange and black ink moving towards orange dominated washes. John leaves the top off his orange ink so it thickens, becoming redder with time. He notes that he doesn't have any red colours of any description. An interesting aside given the rich reds in his work but it reinforces that sometimes getting the effect you want doesn't come via the obvious route and that John has decades of experience to draw upon to achieve the effects he desires in either 2d or 3d.

The bionic eye is a ball bearing with no colour added and he added black washes to the eye sockets. John tends to leave the eyes allowing the sculpture to define them and isn't a fan of the goggle eyed look.

A fairly limited palette of materials and a lot of Snakebite Leather used. For me this one is all about the rendering of the flesh and it's vibrancy speaks for itself. Like all of John's work, it's a vivid slap around the face which demands an opinion. And here's the whole beast...

          Bionic Man        
Remember the Six Million Dollar Man (Steve Austin)? “Gentleman, we can rebuild him, we have the technology. We have the capability to make the world’s first bionic man. Better than he was before. Better, stronger, faster.” [see below clip to remember the nostalgic days of the Six Million Dollar Man] This year we reached a […]
          Top 10 Tallest Proposed Structures (that were never build)        
Some very tall buildings have been erected in recent years, but even the largest of them would look tiny against the structures on this list, which have all been proposed and are, apparently, theoretically possible, at least if the appropriate materials were available. Perhaps some of them will one day become reality; until then, here are the world’s ten largest proposed but unbuilt structures, in reverse order. 10. Bionic Tower 4,029 feet The Bionic Tower has been designed as a solution to land shortage in crowded city locations such as Hong Kong. If it is ever built, this 300 storey
          Transitioning Human Body towards Robotic Adoption         
It has always been a burning talk of the table that the day is not far when humans would be overthrown by their own Frankenstein, that is the artificial intelligence or robots that they created to support their own tasks and make them easy. But there is a slight twist in the scenario. Rather than robots taking over mankind as it is a situation that would arise after decades, something more immediate is being researched upon now. What will be the situation if humans decide to convert themselves into robots? The Head of Biomechatronics Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Professor Hugh Herr, said that human history is at a key transition phase. He further said that the aim of the group is to establish the conditions that are pertaining to technology and science that will ultimately eradicate disability, whether through amputation or paralysis. But the question here is how will humans be posed when this particular goal is achieved in future? On this note, Professor Herr said that they are fusing the build world together with the nervous system. They are on the verge of transitioning from a collaboration that uses technology separately from the human nervous system to a completely novel epoch of incorporation of human physiology. What more? For further information, Professor Hugh Herr is a double amputee. He has a pair of sophisticated and highly advanced bionic legs that enable him to move with natural ease and poise. One of the researcher at the lab demonstrated the method in which they are using the sensors. This is prominent as it helps the led to function according to different functions that the normal led performs. The motor used in the prosthetic legs works in a way that triggers an actual biological ankle joint.

          Can Contact Lenses get Any More Hi-Tech? Yes, they Can!        
Today’s contact lenses are made from either plain hydrogel or silicon hydrogel. The purpose of a contact lens is primarily to provide the corrective vision that people with bad eyesight need. They trump over regular spectacles in terms of utility and let the users do more without having to worry about where they kept their glasses. Their utility does not stop just there though. Modern contact lenses are also used to change the look and the aesthetics of the eye itself. Contact lenses can change the color of your eye and even change the pattern of the eye. Types of Contact Lenses Contact lenses are commonly segmented into hard lenses and soft lenses. The former are made of glass that is gas permeable and cover only part of the cornea. On the other hand, soft contact lenses are extremely flexible, water absorbing and cover most of the cornea. Soft contact lenses, however, come with a shorter shelf life and need to be replaced regularly. Modern Advancements in Contact Lenses Cheaper Contact Lenses: Johnson & Johnson, one of the largest players in the global market for contact lenses, recently revealed that they are about to drop the lower price requirement on their lenses. While this means that contact lenses could get embroiled in a price war that could make them cheaper to the public, the repercussions of this for the companies is yet to be known. This move could be made once the law passed by the Utah government – for banning minimum prices on contact lenses – by Johnson & Johnson and Alcon, all of whom had contested the bill. Sony Files Patent for Camera Contact Lenses: In what seems to be taken right out of a fiction novel’s page, Sony has filed for a patent on a contact lens that can take and store pictures and record movies. Although Sony had actually filed for the patent in 2013, it was made public only recently. The camera can be operated by blinking the eye. Google Bionic Eye: Google has another patent filing done, that of an electronic eye. This device could help a user permanently correct his/her eyesight, at the cost of undergoing a rather intrusive surgery.

Новая героиня Китти Прайд

Китти Прайд была обычной 13-летней школьницей из Иллинойса, когда у нее проявились суперспособности. Она могла проходить через любые объекты, управляя плотностью своего тела. Когда ее суперспособность проявила себя, Китти присоединилась к «Людям Икс». Хотя изначально ее способности считали пассивными, Китти научилась управлять ими так искусно, что смогла спасти друзей и даже целый мир! Китти Прайд отличается не только острым умом и суперспособностями, но и мастерским владением боевыми искусствами (благодаря приключениям с Росомахой), а еще у нее есть друг – огнедышащий дракончик Локхид!

Обновление Marvel Heroes вводит игровое событие Мистический Кошмар.

Мистический Кошмар

Владыка демонов Н'астирх открыл врата между Землей и Лимбо. Он напал на наш мир, сея страх и разрушения. Но действия Н'астирха не лишены смысла. Он пытается сделать связь двух миров неразрывной, чтобы затем окончательно подчинить себе планету и ее жителей.

Н'астирх призвал на свою сторону существ из самых ужасных миров за пределами царства Хель, пообещав им часть захваченной территории. Ваша задача – остановить демонов, прежде чем они добьются успеха.

Многие герои вселенной Marvel объединят силы, чтобы разрушить планы демонов. По своему размаху «Мистический Кошмар» превосходит все еженедельные события и вплотную приближается к событиям Большой десятки.

  • Если группа не в состоянии закончить Лимбо до истечения времени, порталы появляются на каждом участке игрового режима, что облегчит выход из локации.
  • После успешного прохождения Лимбо в группе все игроки получают одинаковое задание. Это значительно облегчит выполнение и сделает командную игру более приятной.
  • Цели для миссии Горгон и Веном изменены на Человека-Обезьяну и Мистера Хайда.
  • Количество сундуков Мистического Кошмара увеличено для некоторых заданий.

  • Количество Легендарных Мистических Свитков и двойных Легендарных Мистических Свитков больше не ограничивается. Шанс выпадения этих предметов увеличен.
Достижения

Вторая часть мистического достижения доступна для разгадки. В случае если игрокам удастся разгадать тайну, бонус к опыту, поиску редких и специальных предметов в размере 63% будет продлен на еще 1 день после завершения события Мистический Кошмар.

With an increasing number of patents applied for or even granted in the year 2014 than in any year known in the history, the humankind has never been so much inventive. The wide range comprises from designing innovative driverless cars, discovery of new drugs for cancer or even building bionic limbs. However, the growth in the innovation has been slowing down, with global patent volume up 3% in the previous year, which is the smallest annual rise from the end of the great recession in the year 2009. Recent years have witnessed around double-digit increase in the percentages. While some part of that may be because of the tighter and strict patenting rules and regulation in the United States, there are also some signs of more shifts in the fundamentals, along with the volume of scientific literature that has been published, which is a precursor to patents which is down by around 22% across 12 different industries. Significantly, the patents for semiconductors have gone down around 5% in the year 2014. That may have spell some kind of trouble for other areas, as microchips form fundamentals for certain innovations including wearable technology, big data and its Internet-of-things, which offers wireless communication through appliances. However, with more than 2.1 million innovative and unique inventions that have been recorded across different industries in the previous year, the whole world is not exactly short of some more new and innovative ideas.

          Author Al Doshna to Visit the Silver Screen Oasis on 6/6 & 6/7        


"When people ask me where I received my education, I tell them it was at MGM-U. The biggest lessons I learned is that acting is a talent. You can't teach it. And even if you have the talent you have to get a part." - Richard Anderson

The Q & A about this book is now ongoing here: 
http://silverscreenoasis.com/oasis3/viewtopic.php?f=114&t=6875


Author Al Doshna, whose background as an actor and writer make him an apt choice to co-write a memoir by veteran actor Richard Anderson, will be joining us Saturday, June 6th and Sunday, June 7th at the Silver Screen Oasis. His latest book was written with an actor of exceptional range, whose life on and off the set is explored in  Richard Anderson: At Last, A Memoir From to the Golden Years of MGM and The Six Million Dollar Man to Now (BearManor). The book, described by one reviewer as a "fascinating treasure trove of anecdotes from throughout Richard’s amazing life," has been hailed by more than one reader as a book in which "every page [is] like a cozy fireside visit with friends."

Al Doshna covers Anderson’s humble beginnings as a young contract actor at that most fabled of dream factories, MGM to his early roles including FORBIDDEN PLANET, SCARAMOUCHE, ACROSS THE WIDE MISSOURI, and THE BUSTER KEATON STORY. Such legendary figures as Spencer Tracy, Clark Gable and Cary Grant are part of his life in each chapter, along with exceptional directors such as John Sturges, William Wellman, John Frankenheimer, and Stanley Kubrick.

Anderson was also there for the classic era of television with stints on everything from Disney’s take on Zorro to The Rifleman to The Man from U.N.C.L.E.. And he starred as Oscar Goldman in the classic series, The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman. The actor, whose debonair style blends nimbly with a natural gravitas, offers his own insights into the changing nature of the entertainment business as he also comments on the artistry and craftsmanship he has witnessed in a career that has spanned over half a century.

Please join us on June 6th and June 7 to discuss with Al Doshna this distinctive actor's travels from stage, screen, and television and to explore the wide-ranging interests of the author into the world of entertainment. All are welcome!

          Los cigarrillos electrónicos y 5 objetos tecnológicos que son tendencia en 2015        

En los últimos años, la tecnología del cigarrillo electrónico llama la atención en el evento de referencia a nivel mundial Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Mientras seguimos pensando que el cigarrillo electrónico es uno de los mejores gadgets disponibles, su ascenso a la popularidad mediática ha dado paso a una nueva generación de electrónica de consumo hasta ser el centro del escenario. CES es uno de nuestros momentos favoritos para explorar todos los nuevos objetos tecnológicos que debutan cada año y no podíamos esperar a ver lo que está reservado para 2015.

Hemos elaborado una lista de las seis principales categorías que dominaron el evento celebrado en enero de este año.

Cigarrillos Electrónicos

Se vieron muchas novedades en la industria de los cigarillos electrónicos en el evento. Una de ellas, por ejemplo, es que los futuros vaporizadores se habilitarán mediante Bluetooth, lo que permitirá usar aplicaciones para monitorear los niveles de uso y nicotina. Otra posibilidad es la adición de dispositivos giroscópicos para el reconocimiento de gestos y reconocimiento de la huella digital para mantener el cigarrillo electrónico lejos de los niños.

Drones

La velocidad a la que la tecnología de los drones está inundando el mercado es impresionante. CES nos presentó al Bionic Bird (pájaro biónico), un avión no tripulado parecido a los de  papel que puede ser comprado por apenas $ 139.

Tecnología Portátil

La tecnología portátil de todo tipo está de moda. Dado que nuestra afinidad por la tecnología portátil es tan grande, esto no constituyó una sorpresa. Amamos nuestros relojes de monitoreo para hacer ejercicio, pero el 2015 promete traer una serie de nuevos elementos portátiles, como monitores de ritmo cardíaco o cinturones autoajustables, entre otros.

TV

En la categoría de tecnología para la televisión, Sling TV de Dish fue el producto destacado de la feria de este año para la mayoría de nosotros. Sling TV promete cambiar la forma en que pensamos respecto a nuestros servicios de TV por cable; es un servicio de TV 'online' por US$20 al mes, con una gran variedad de canales disponibles.

Tecnología para Audio

La gran novedad en el CES 2015 fue el renacimiento del Walkman de Sony.  Aunque el precio es considerablemente mayor de $1.000,apreciamos ver que un producto con el que crecimos tenga otra oportunidad para la popularidad. Y no hay nada de los 1980s respecto al nuevo Walkman; este dispositivo ha sido reinventado con un énfasis en las demandas modernas de los consumidores- alta calidad y música digital.

Coches

Encontramos toneladas de avances interesantes (con respecto a, o en lo que se refiere a)que involucran a los automóviles. Como por ejemplo, la tecnología de "zonas de sonido individuales" que permite a cada persona tener su propia banda sonora en el coche. Los pasajeros podrán escuchar sólo lo que han programado para su zona; bloqueándose los otros sonidos.

¿Qué opinas de la nueva generación de tecnología programada para saltar a la popularidad en el 2015? ¡Cuéntanoslo aquí!

          Arthritis? Thanks, Mom…        

You know those autoplay ads that sometimes run before an online video? Here’s the text version. Libriomancer is still on sale for $1.99 at Amazon, B&N, etc! (I believe this is limited to North America, though.) No idea how much longer this will last, so if you’ve been thinking about checking out one of my books, now’s a great time.

#

Anyway, I had a checkup with my doctor this afternoon, which confirmed something I’d suspected for a few months now. I’m starting to develop arthritis in the middle knuckles of my index fingers.

For the moment, this is a minimal annoyance. It doesn’t interfere with my writing. I notice it mostly when I’m trying to make a tight fist for karate. Or when I bump one of the knuckles against something. But it’s the first sign of what’s likely to be a progressive problem.

(Please note that I’m not asking for medical advice, thanks!)

I mentioned this to my father, and he was happy to tell me I inherited this particular problem from my mother. Which seems fair, considering the diabetes comes from his genes.

Mostly right now, it’s a worry for the future. I mean, I’m a writer. I spend way too much time typing at a keyboard. I know dictation is an option, but for the moment, I rely on my hands. And between some tendons tightening up in my hands (Dupuytren’s contracture) and now this, I’m not sure what’s going to happen as I get older.

Hopefully I’ll just get some bionic hands or something. Maybe I’ll be able to moonlight as a superhero. I could write a noir-style bestseller about my first case: The Hand Job.

Okay, maybe not…

In the meantime, I guess the best thing to do is write as many stories as I can. Just in case 😉

          Rihanna The Last Occult Programmed Rockstar On Earth        
Yesterday was two years to the day that this blog first started (26th April 2008), I have bigger posts in the works but wanted to put out something quick and easy to get me back into a posting mentality.

Rihanna's live performance of 'Rockstar 101' in her Last Girl on Earth Tour was interesting in that it pretty much summarized what a 'rock star' is in the backing video with a colossal Baphomet ram skull (how is that supposed to fit into the 'the last girl on earth' narrative?) overlooking the black latex clad and gold horned mask wearing Rihanna. Up and down pointing triangles (as above so below, you get the drill) and of course what it's all really about for the marionette manipulators behind the music industry; the $$$, power and control. I realize people are probably bored shitless of Rihanna, Lady GaGa and co (I know I am, sort of) but they make it so easy. I was tempted to just post images/video with no words as it is all reasonably self-evident and I won't be retreading over the whole masks, mannequins, militarism, robots, dehumanization and other MK themes' significance throughout. I also probably did not pick up on a lot of stuff from the tour (having only seen short clips from it) and do not plan to cover the symbolism in some of her more recent videos as most stuff seems to have been well analyzed elsewhere and generally things get covered well by the likes of Vigilant and others so will not be focusing on music videos and would like to get into some posts on other things in the media.





Rihanna's mind control is shown in the tour's introductory video for the her song 'Mad House' where she is (see top video), roboticized with a metallic mask forced over her face (like porcelain mask programming) and implanted with chips for control over the now cybernetic Rihanna (plays into transhumanism too obviously, good article at VC on that here). It continues (below) with her inside one of those 'programming pods' (seen in other things I've posted on; if you think of more advanced isolation/sensory deprivation tanks for entering altered states in programming) where a Dream Sequence is initiated symbolizing Rihanna "becoming" the characters she portrays for the live show's narrative (last girl on Earth apocalyptic stuff, based partly on 'The Omega Man' apparently). A black and white shot of her face traumatically screaming while she is kept under, looking calm and content in the pod (but screaming on the inside is the clear implication). Naturally her kitten programming is symbolized by a tiger face superimposed over Rihanna's face. After all the usual subliminal flashes of skulls and all that fun stuff, she eventually performs among mannequins and masked backing dancers (photo below videos).

"A world of her own... A world made of her dreams... And nightmares..."


From 'Hard' comes the militaristic Mickey Mouse hat, it is all ultimately about influencing the kids after all, as evidenced by her singing the aforementioned ultra-suggestive 'Hard' followed by the explicit rough sex anthem 'Rude Boy' at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards 2010. Come on kids, sing it with me! (<>"SO HARD SO HARD... Come here rude boy, boy, can you get it up? Come here rude boy, boy, is you big enough. Take it, take it, baby baby, etc" Rihanna's poor grammar here is absolutely shocking, it should be "'are' you big enough"! That was a joke, I don't mean to make light of a serious issue but I feel it is important to maintain some sort of sense of humor. The lyrics for the performance were apparently changed to "is your love enough" and other slight alterations but please, the children there would know the explicit lyrics and sing the ones they know. How brainwashed do you have to be to see that this is not okay and shows exactly the kinds of minds controlling the music/entertainment industry who would allow this to go forward. People act like "what were they thinking?!" (not as much as one would hope though) when they showed this, but these things are meticulously organized and thought out. Rihanna's handlers could easily have had her sing any other song but they went with three completely inappropriate choices (appropriate though, if you know what is going on).

The themes of militarism, Rihanna entering, sitting on a pink tank above it's phallic cannon (obviously conscious suggestiveness here in the tank's pink colour and the phallic cannon also playing into the 'HARD' song she performs to the kids). Then after 'Hard' two twin plumes of white smoke shoot up, ejaculating (is the pretty blatant implication here, it would be illogical to not make that connection following from 'Hard' and the lyrics sung at that exact time) either side of Rihanna and 'Rude Boy' begins when she dances with the big robots dominating over her. 'Don't Stop the Music' wraps it up and the pink tank, sexy militaristic dancers and twin robots all participate, the song itself is about meeting a guy in a club then (logic suggests, based on the lyrics) fucking him, so obviously fitting the family friendly themes of Nick's Kids Choice awards then. I am reluctant to be so explicit in those descriptions (I can imagine the response I may get) but I feel it is so obvious that it needed to be said.

Above Rihanna on the pink cammo phallic tank and the backing militarist dancers with their over sized "pink wrenches" (replacement for the usual military gun phallus). Below, "slimed" ('sliming' is a yearly ritual Nickelodeon do at every awards, Katy Perry got it this year) kids directly following the song 'Hard' (what ever could Nickelodeon be suggesting here by cutting to that I wonder...).

They also cut specifically to these children with (not) "Peace" symbols and butterflies on their t-shirts and whatnot, no doubt to go along with the imagery of the performance.



Below pics are from the Last Girl on Earth tour to wrap this short post up.

=?
But she is a christian and does charity work!! She's just doing her thing playing a character, get a life! Listen to the interview, she explains all of this! Sorry, but "fans" crack me up. I was listening to Christina's explanation for why she went with the Bionic theme and it almost made me laugh out loud... fans lap up all their adored "artist's" nice little stories about why they use certain things though and fair play to them, what reason do they have to question them, none that would benefit themselves that is for sure. It is worth noting who is behind these tours and who may be ultimately responsible for including these themes in many of the Monarch performers' tours, Jamie King who was the creative director of Britney's latest Circus tour and many more.
"You are the consumer (and that is all you are to them)... She... Your soul option..." Intro video to the Rockstar 101 performance. So this quick, rushed post is really just to get the ball rolling again and get me back in posting mode, more posts up soon on some things away from the music industry. I will probably put up a Caprica post in a couple of days, main focus on the actress playing the Cylon, I also want to get some movies/actor posts going and my Uni commitments finish in mid-late May so will hopefully be able to pick up the pace by then. I was wondering if anyone had any alternatives to 'LinkWithin' where you still have image links but you can manually choose which posts it links to (or just an improved one that is similar but more precise in which are the most related posts) because it obviously struggles to deal with the number of posts and whatnot but it is a good way of linking to other posts so may just leave it if there are no good alternatives.

          The Luciferian Christina        

Quick post, I came across this photo of Christina Aguilera (click for her previous posts/photos) in a Luciferian black magick scene, with a ritual pentagram drawn on the ground and each point/element has a black candle on it. The scene, at the very least resonates with themes of Satanic ritual abuse.

Disney Mouseketeers are predominantly victims of Monarch (trauma-based mind control) programming often involving "Satanic" ritual abuse, this set of images is quite indicative of that I feel. Note the battered and burned doll on the floor which is a standard motif for childhood abuse, Christina's father Fausto's abuse and a sociopathic obsession with control is pretty well known (see this post for some specifics she can recall), a typical Monarch military father (whose name, meaning 'luck' in Italian, reminds me of Goethe's Faust who allied himself with the Devil) who traveled to military bases with his family, eventually leaving them when she was still young. By age 8 they already had her appearing on TV shows singing sexually suggestive songs which is not as blatant as her own 100% sexual euphemism debut song "Genie in the Bottle" (Britney's debut of course was also entirely suggestive), singing the 'Star-Spangled Banner' to testosterone-filled stadiums and in that pentagram-centric 'Star Search' show, in which Britney also appeared before they joined the Mickey Mouse Club (posted on it a lot in Britney posts).

Note her occult pendant, the crescent moon with three pentagrams inside it (notice the same motifs, crescent moons and pentagram symbolism on Magician/Wizard Mickey's conical hat), skull and bones brooch (also wearing a ruby ring [second image below] associated with sexual programming, and a ruby drops necklace symbolizing blood [drops]). Note the black cat, overtly for the standard witch cliché (and it's cultural association with the devil and witches) but more to symbolize her sex kitten programming. Spiders are another common MK motif (all of these kinds of symbols make for good triggers) because of spider tortures' effectiveness (victims describe being trapped in a box with spiders dropped in with them and such) and other facets of the spider are useful for programming (i.e. the spider web imagery is a good template for internal structuring), her red and black clothing may also be an allusion to the Black Widow.


On the other doll (symbolically under her foot/trampled on) note the position of the knife on it's stomach, all very symbolic of ritual abuse (and showing literally how they are used in MK, as the child is emotionally attached to the doll, giving it a personality and whatnot, so it can be used in multiple ways to emotionally traumatize the victim to create splits/personalities). What is that bloody thing above, it looks like a skinned goat head or something? There also appears to be an animal skull (below Minnie Witch photo), possibly a goat though half is cut off. A practicing occultist reader could probably describe the purpose of the jars and whatnot. Included a loosely related image of Christina at Disneyland with a Minnie Mouse Witch (+ sunflowers).
Note the red and black coloured clothing (black/red/white common colour scheme used by occultists such as the Nazi establishment, the red associated with the occult obsession with pure genes/bloodline, black evil/darkness, white light for duality). Click one of the above images where you can see that one of Christina's Hebrew tattoos is on show, it is unlikely that she wasn't posed specifically and ritualistically to reveal the Hebrew letters 'Yud' (Y) and 'Bet' (B) to add a bit of Kabbalah magick to the shoot's (metaphorical) cauldron.
These Hebrew letters are described in the press as representing her husband, currently her long-term handler, Jewish music executive Jordan Bratman's initials, with Spanish words surrounding it reading "I love you always" (a permanent declaration of eternal devotion to the handler). Apparently Roman Catholic raised, she was married in a Jewish ceremony and their son Max Liron Bratman has been circumcised, the bris ceremony was decorated with inflatable penises/phalli (as if the traumatic genital mutilation [however you choose to rationalize it, that's what it is] ritual ceremony wasn't messed up enough).

Note Jordan's Mickey Mouse skull/death t-shirt with Christina, one of the products of Walt Disney Company's cult (in terms of who runs it) of death and perversion. Christina has even been branded with a Walt Disney's Mickey Mouse ears tattoo, in a fitting location (for Disney) below her bikini line (cannot find any pictures, info from Vanishing Tattoo).

The other Hebrew tattoo, below on the small of her back (AKA her 'tramp stamp' as it is known) comes from the symbolic Song of Solomon (important to Kabbalists) 6:3, reading 'I am to my beloved as my beloved is to me.' followed by Jordan Bratman's initials JB (Victoria Beckham has a quote from the same part of the Song of Solomon tattooed down the back of her neck/backbone [this positioning is clearly symbolic, associated with the Tree of Life, see Fashion's Gnosis for details] Britney also had a Hebrew tattoo of a name for God).

The title of this post is a play on words for the 'Luciferian Christ' (Christina/Christian obviously meaning 'Follower of Christ' which is pretty ironic [it is how they think, their sense of humor I feel]), in the same set (taken by Judson Baker in 2005 for Blender magazine, whose split word motif I have noted before, see the magazine cover further down) Christina is photographed with motifs associated with Jesus Christ namely crucifixes. Note all the 'light' symbolism wearing white, with a silver crucifix (and a ruby crucifix necklace). Same again below with the sun/light coming from behind the clouds behind her head (like Jesus, the light/sun of God, he is often portrayed with the sun behind his head).

A bit of Baphomet posing (as above so below) below with the "Holy Spirit" dove (on the 'as above', fitting with the symbolic pose).

Continuing the set below, as the dualistic opposite of the above, dark themes as opposed to light. Speaking of duality, her next album was, at one point going to be called 'Light and Darkness' but seems to have changed to 'Bionic' (more associated with mind control as it suggests dehumanization, body parts replaced or augmented with tech, turning to a cyborg/robot MK theme), there has been speculation that this video is part of viral advertising for it but am reluctant to embed it until it is confirmed one way or the other. Note the skull necklace, blood red/scarlet outfit and the sun's light attempting to break through the dark storm clouds gathering behind her. The red ribbon coiled round her wrist reminds me and is probably symbolic of the Kabbalistic Tefillin.


Note the black crusader/templar-like cross (and the ironic statements about her being different from other "fake" artists like Britney whose system does not appear to be as structurally sound [so to speak] as Christina's system).



Citizen K photo shoot from last year, who to me looks quite a bit like Kabbalistic prima-Monarch witch Madonna in this set (note black/white symbolism above and the mannequins).


A symbolic photo below from one of her earlier shoots below which I thought was poignant enough to finish with. Update on my current posting situation, I've been feeling increasingly unsure of what to post on (there is no shortage of subjects to choose from though, which is part of the problem), I spent a long time on one then decided to start a Mariah Carey post, so that should be up in the next few days and return to the one I was working on.


          Mycotoxic Foods - Top 10 List        
Definition of Mycotoxic - Pertaining to or emanating from a mycotoxin.

Definition of Mycotoxin - Mycotoxin (from the Greek word (mykes) "fungus")

Definition of Toxin - A toxin (from the Greek word (toxikon), lit. (poison) is a poisonous substance produced by living cells or organisms

Courtesy of David A. Holland, M.D. (Thanks David)

Mycotoxins cause a wide range of health problems in humans when we are exposed to small amounts over an extended period of time, and can even be lethal if taken in large quantities over a short period of time. Given the large number of diseases linked to mycotoxins (see Dr. Holland’s list at the end of the article) and our tendency to eat a large amount of grains in our typical American diet, this is a very concerning problem. Dr. Holland states, "Grains are sources of carbohydrates, or sugars, and as such, they risk contamination by certain fungi. These fungi produce secondary metabolites, or mycotoxins."

1. Alcoholic beverages
Alcohol is the mycotoxin of the Saccharomyces yeast--brewer’s yeast. Other mycotoxins besides alcohol can also be introduced into these beverages through the use of mold-contaminated grains and fruits. Producers often use grains that are too contaminated with fungi and mycotoxins to be used for table foods, so the risk is higher that you are consuming more than just alcohol in your beverage (Council for Agricultural Science and technology. Mycotoxins: Economic and Health Risks. Task Force Report Number 116. CAST. Ames, IA. Nov 1989). Before you drink for the health of your heart, consider the other possible risks of drinking. There are safer ways of consuming antioxidants.

2. Corn
Corn is "universally contaminated" with fumonisin and other fungal toxins such as aflatoxin, zearalenone and ochratoxin (Council for Agricultural Science and Technology. Mycotoxins: Risks in Plant, Animal and Human Systems. Task Force Report No. 139. Ames, IA. Jan 2003). Fumonisin and aflatoxin are known for their cancer-causing effects, while zearalenone and ochratoxin cause estrogenic and kidney-related problems, respectively. Just as corn is universally contaminated with mycotoxins, our food supply seems to be universally contaminated with corn--it’s everywhere! A typical chicken nugget at a fast food restaurant consists of a nugget of corn-fed chicken that is covered by a corn-based batter that is sweetened with corn syrup!

3. Wheat
Not only is wheat often contaminated with mycotoxins, but so are the products made from wheat, like breads, cereals, pasta, etc. Pasta may be the least-"offensive" form of grains since certain water-soluble mycotoxins, such as deoxynivalenol (vomitoxin), are partially removed and discarded when you toss out the boiling water that you cooked the pasta in. Unfortunately, traces of the more harmful, heat-stable and fat-soluble mycotoxins, such as aflatoxin, remain in the grain. Regarding breads--it probably doesn’t matter if it’s organic, inorganic, sprouted, blessed or not--if it came from a grain that has been stored for months in a silo, it stands the chance of being contaminated with fungi and mycotoxins.

4. Barley
Similar to other grains that can be damaged by drought, floods and harvesting and storage processes, barley is equally susceptible to contamination by mycotoxin-producing fungi. Barley is used in the production of various cereals and alcoholic beverages.

5. Sugar (sugar cane and sugar beets)
Not only are sugar cane and sugar beets often contaminated with fungi and their associated fungi, but they, like the other grains, fuel the growth of fungi. Fungi need carbohydrates--sugars--to thrive.

6. Sorghum
Sorghum is used in a variety of grain-based products intended for both humans and animals. It is also used in the production of alcoholic beverages.

7. Peanuts
A 1993 study demonstrated 24 different types of fungi that colonized the inside of the peanuts used in the report (Costantini, A. Etiology and Prevention of Atherosclerosis. Fungalbionics Series.1998/99). And this was after the exterior of the peanut was sterilized! So, when you choose to eat peanuts, not only are you potentially eating these molds, but also their mycotoxins. Incidentally, in the same study the examiners found 23 different fungi on the inside of corn kernels. That said, if you choose to plant your own garden in an attempt to avoid mycotoxin contamination of corn or peanuts, it does you no good if the seed (kernel) used to plant your garden is already riddled with mold.

8. Rye
The same goes for rye as for wheat and other grains. In addition, when we use wheat and rye to make bread, we add two other products that compound our fungal concerns: sugar and yeast!

9. Cottonseed
Cottonseed is typically found in the oil form (cottonseed oil), but is also used in the grain form for many animal foods. Many studies show that cottonseed is highly and often contaminated with mycotoxins.

10. Hard Cheeses
Here’s a hint: if you see mold growing throughout your cheese, no matter what you paid for it, there’s a pretty good chance that there’s a mycotoxin not far from the mold. It is estimated that each fungus on Earth produces up to three different mycotoxins. The total number of mycotoxins known to date numbers in the thousands.
On the other hand, some cheeses, such as Gouda cheese, are made with yogurt-type cultures, like Lactobacillus, and not fungi (Costantini, 1998/99). These cheeses are a much healthier alternative, fungally speaking.
Naturally, with this list coming from a group that opposes eating food that is merely contaminated with fungi, we’d certainly oppose eating the fungus itself! That would include common table mushrooms and so-called myco-protein food products.
Other foods that could potentially make our list are rice, oats and beans, given that these too are sources of carbohydrates. And occasionally food inspectors will come across a batch of mold-contaminated rice or oats. However, all other things being equal, these crops are generally more resistant to fungal contamination (CAST 1989).

          How employers kill worker motivation and what they can do to change        

Watch Video | Listen to the Audio

ALISON STEWART: But first: With a new year comes new resolutions both at home and at work, but many of us aren’t motivated enough to get through our to-do lists. In fact, more than half of American workers feel disengaged at their jobs.

Our economics correspondent, Paul Solman, looks at what could motivate us into action. It’s part of his weekly series, Making Sense, which airs Thursdays on the “NewsHour.”

DAN ARIELY, Author, “Payoff”: I think we could get people to both be more productive and happier.

PAUL SOLMAN: Behavioral economist Dan Ariely, who’s joined a chorus of economists bemoaning America’s productivity slowdown.

DAN ARIELY: We’re less productive as individuals. We’re less productive as companies, and we’re more miserable.

PAUL SOLMAN: But Ariely thinks there’s something corporate America can do to boost productivity: better understand human motivation.

DAN ARIELY: Motivation, basically getting people to be happy at work, everybody — everybody benefits.

PAUL SOLMAN: Thus his new book, “Payoff.”

But before the specifics, a bit of backstory. As a teen, Ariely spent three years in the hospital, horribly burned. But it was just recently, when a stranger called him after her son suffered a similar fate, that he realized why people make an effort.

DAN ARIELY: And she asked me to send her son an optimistic note about life. I didn’t know what to say. You know, I — he was so badly burnt and…

PAUL SOLMAN: As badly burned as you had been?

DAN ARIELY: Worse.

PAUL SOLMAN: Even worse?

DAN ARIELY: Worse — worse than I was.

And I wasn’t sure that staying alive is better for him than not. Pain is just terrible, pain and desperation and hopelessness. And if it happened again today, I wouldn’t want to continue.

PAUL SOLMAN: Recalling his own cruel trial, Ariely broke down, out of the patient’s sight.

DAN ARIELY: And, eventually, I said, you know, life is going to be difficult and complex, and you will never have a normal life. But I also told him that technology is on the side of the disabled, because we can do things that we wouldn’t be able to do without it.

Even though it was a very difficult time with this kid, right, it gave me a sense of, I’m giving back, I’m helping somebody else, and I’m connecting with this kid, and I’m doing something that I’m supposed to do in some ways.

PAUL SOLMAN: The lesson for Ariely: Our behavior is driven by emotion, not the conventional rewards like money.

ALEC BALDWIN, Actor: Have I got your attention now?

PAUL SOLMAN: And he thinks corporate America would do well to take note.

ALEC BALDWIN: We’re adding a little something to this month’s sales contest. As you all know, first prize is a Cadillac Eldorado. Anybody want to see second prize? The second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is, you’re fired.

PAUL SOLMAN: Money, threats of no money, Ariely has found they don’t inspire hard work.

Consider this experiment he ran at a computer chip production line in Israel. Workers who made their chip quota got either $30 or a voucher for pizza to take home to the family or a “well-done” text from the boss.

We asked New Yorkers to guess the experiment’s results. Which do you think would be most motivating?

WOMAN: The voucher for the pizza.

MAN: Cash in the wallet. It always works.

MAN: The text from the boss. That would motivate me more.

WOMAN: The bonus.

MAN: Well done more often is definitely more motivational.

PAUL SOLMAN: In the actual experiment, workers who made the quota and received the $30 and those that got a pizza voucher and the group that got a compliment were all more productive than workers who received nothing.

DAN ARIELY: Money was slightly worse than the other two, but they were all much better.

PAUL SOLMAN: But, on the second day, when the workers who’d gotten the $30 were not paid a bonus, regardless of how many chips they turned out, their productivity actually dropped below those who’d gotten zilch.

DAN ARIELY: In total, by giving people $30 bonus, Intel lost almost 5 percent of productivity. That’s a lot. Now, think about it. You give money because you think this would increase motivation. It actually decreases motivation.

The real issue is, how much goodwill do you invest in the work? And goodwill is not something that we can buy with money. It’s very hard to buy goodwill with money.

PAUL SOLMAN: Ariely has highlighted another payoff using, of all things, origami.

It’s already a little sloppy.

DAN ARIELY: Indeed.

PAUL SOLMAN: But you have got time constraints, so…

DAN ARIELY: I see. You’re doing it for me. You’re being sloppy for me. That’s so kind of you.

PAUL SOLMAN: I am. I am.

There’s pride in your own hard work, regardless of outcome.

Anyway, that’s good enough.

DAN ARIELY: You put some effort into it. It doesn’t look like the one in the book.

PAUL SOLMAN: No.

DAN ARIELY: But it’s uniquely yours. And the effort that’s gone into folding it and crumpling it is uniquely a combination of this magical moment between you and this piece of paper.

(LAUGHTER)

PAUL SOLMAN: Right.

DAN ARIELY: Now, in the experiment, we came to people, we said, look, so, this origami actually belongs to us, but, if you’re interested, we will sell it to you.

So, for example, if it was 10 cents, would you buy it or not?

PAUL SOLMAN: Yes. Yes.

DAN ARIELY: Ninety cents?

PAUL SOLMAN: A buck. It’s got character. It’s got a little runny nose. It’s definitely unique, I would say.

(LAUGHTER)

PAUL SOLMAN: Unique.

DAN ARIELY: There you go.

And then if I came from the outside and I look at it, I would look at the same unique features in a different way, and I would basically say, I’m willing to pay maybe 10 cents.

What we found is that people who build it were willing to pay more than five times more than the people who didn’t.

PAUL SOLMAN: Ariely has dubbed this attachment to things we have made ourselves the Ikea effect, and he says it can be harnessed by employers.

DAN ARIELY: If you get people to feel that they are putting something, that they are creating it and so on, their love for the project would increase. The more something is yours, the more you’re willing to invest in it.

So, these are Bionicles, little LEGO robots.

PAUL SOLMAN: But it’s then more demotivating when others devalue that hard work, as in this experiment in which Ariely paid participants to build these characters.

And one of these is like a wrap-around thing here. Hold on. Where do these go? Oh, these guys go at the end of this.

What ages is this for, by the way?

DAN ARIELY: Seven to 14.

PAUL SOLMAN: Seven to 14, so I’m out of the age range, so…

DAN ARIELY: Yes, after 14, it becomes increasingly harder.

(LAUGHTER)

DAN ARIELY: And let’s say you finished, right?

PAUL SOLMAN: OK.

DAN ARIELY: I have it. And as you start building the second one, I break this into pieces.

I’m just doing it here next to you. And then I say, would you like to build another one, the third one?

PAUL SOLMAN: Right.

DAN ARIELY: And if you say yes, I don’t bring a third box in. I give you the one that you just built, and I disassembled.

PAUL SOLMAN: Oh, that’s cruel.

In-your-face Bionicle dismemberment sure demotivated me, and, it turns out, the study’s participants.

DAN ARIELY: Very quickly, they said no more, this is not worth my time.

This is what happens when we destroy people’s work in front of their eyes, or when we don’t let their work reach any fruition. So, imagine that you’re working on some PowerPoint presentation, and I say, we’re not going to present it to anybody, or you’re working on a project, and I cancel your project. I just basically let you work, but I don’t let the product of the work shine.

PAUL SOLMAN: Too often, says Ariely, firms kill motivation by failing to notice what workers really care about. And yet it’s so obvious.

DAN ARIELY: The things that motivate us are to help other people, to feel that we’re useful, to feel that we’re getting better, to feel that we are kind of living to our potential, to get a sense of meaning. All of those things are positive.

PAUL SOLMAN: And, above all, connection to others. Just ask people what most gratifies them, Ariely suggested.

MAN: Watching my wife do things that are completely outrageous.

MAN: Taking care of my family.

WOMAN: My children.

WOMAN: Watching my son dance.

PAUL SOLMAN: And, in my own case, what keeps me doing this job, connecting with folks like Dan Ariely.

That’s cute.

DAN ARIELY: How come the Japanese didn’t think about this, right?

(LAUGHTER)

PAUL SOLMAN: This is economics correspondent Paul Solman, trying to connect with you from New York.

It’s a swan displaying. I have got a whole story in my mind now.

ALISON STEWART: Online, we have more from Dan Ariely. Read an excerpt from his book where he recalls helping a burn victim by sharing his experience.

That’s at PBS.org/NewsHour.

          A Sunday Comic Books Review        
DCBS
Here are reviews of the DCBS comic books that I've gotten around to reading and reviewing, sorted by the original shipping date:
  • Mar 15th
  • Aquaman #19 - Working with people who tried to assassinate you has got to be tough, and I don't blame Mera for insisting on tagging along. As for the rest - nice use of previous storylines to set up lots of plot quickly. The pacing of the issue was great, and the creepiness and mystery are also nice. The only thing that rang a little false was Mortimer's sheer panic - he's a hardened criminal who screwed over a lot of people, and despite what happened to him, I didn't buy the panic. Fear, yes, but the panic seemed excessive. I hope Mera remembers how she defeated Dead Water before, because if she doesn't at least try it, I'll be disappointed.
  • Justice League #17 - Superman talks with a giant baby while everyone else is fighting for their lives. Ok. Nifty. Aquaman gets two pages, and that's good. I would have liked to see more of him, of course, but this isn't his own title, so I'll live with two. Especially when those two pages show him very much in command. It's ok, but I'm feeling the decompressed storyline blues at this point.
  • Green Lanterns #19 - Doctor Polaris, along with a possible set up for more healing that Simon can do. However, if it turns out he's able to cure cancer and not just bring someone he loves deeply out of a coma, that sets up a massive moral dilemma in the form of "why are you punching people when you ought to be saving lives?" I hope that is avoided somehow. In the meantime, the pair of heroes got themselves into a bit of a jam on that final, literal, splash page.
  • DC Comics Bombshells #24 - Well, I'm not a big fan of this storyline mostly because it involves a lot of characters I don't really care much for, but at least it wrapped up in a way that was mostly understandable. All the various plots were explained, and there was even a nice betrayal in the middle of the mess. Fun stuff, but I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next.
  • Star Trek Deviations - In an alternate universe, the crew of the Enterprise gathers under rather different leadership. I guess my main complaint with this is that I cannot tell exactly when and how this timeline deviated from the "real" one. If there were just a few more clues, maybe. It was clearly after the Federation was formed, and possibly just before, during, or just after Kirk's voyages. Beyond that, can't tell. My biggest problem with the book is that Riker is bleeding out and Crusher doesn't seem to notice - even though Riker told her the bad news and comforted her. I mean, what?
  • Doctor Who 10th #3.3 - I love when the Doctor appears in a fairy tale setting, and thanks to Father Wu Wei. The whole story is pretty neat, and I love the artwork in the bits that are being told as a fairy tale. I'm a little concerned about Gabby, however, since this issue put her behind enemy lines with no apparent back-up. Looking forward ot the next issue.
  • Forever War #2 - Wow. Psychic aliens that are curious to see what happens next. And the first contact with the enemy. This all seems oddly familiar, so I'm beginning to think I may have read the book sometime in the long distant past and just forgotten I've read it. That said, a fairly powerful bit of the story.
  • Wonder Woman '77 and Bionic Woman #3 - It took me two tries to get through the exposition part of this book. Yes, the character had to be introduced, and yes, there was even a joke about how long they took doing it, but bleh. I really didn't enjoy wading through it. However, once past that, the book was great. I guess it was just another effort to make me hate the bad guys more.
  • Mar 22nd
  • Teen Titans #6 - Yay, the return of Jackson! As he was originally introduced, Jackson lives in the middle of the desert but knows he has water powers. And in this reality he seeks out the Titans because he feels the need to be free of parental guidance and to have the ability to explore his powers. In the meantime, the Titans have their own issues. I loved that final splash page... almost giggled, to be honest. Beast Boy isn't my favorite character ever, but he's mildly charming in this. Going to enjoy this storyarc, I think.
  • Batman Beyond #6 - Ah, the age-old question of whether Batman or the civilian identity is the mask. Is Terry Batman, or does he take on the role of Batman? And how will that affect his life and desires? And more importantly, how will it affect the people who rely on him? It's a good thing to explore with a new character carrying the mantle - and it's a question that has dogged this particular character from the moment he put the suit on, so it works.
  • Batman '66 Meets Wonder Woman '77 #3 - Catwoman works great for her role in this issue, and I like the interaction between the heroes and the Amazons, as well. This really is a fun book on many different levels.
  • Future Quest #11 - Well, they put together a great plan and it looked like everything was going well, so I'm really curious now as to what may have gotten messed up along the way. It looked to me, based on what the book has given us so far, that it ought to have worked or been working... so I'm drawn in again, wondering what the secret is and waiting for the next issue.
  • Scooby-Doo Team-Up #24 - You know, the Martian Manhunter really is incredibly creepy when you think about his abilities. Invisibility, shape-shifting... it's a wonder he isn't considered more scary than he is in the DC universe. Though having him shift into Scooby's form was hilarious.
  • Dirk Gently: Salmon of Doubt #6 - I don't think there is any way I could even start to attempt to sum this book up - or even any parts of it - so I'll just say this one raised my eyebrows and amused me greatly and leave it at that.
  • Star Trek/Green Lantern V2 #4 - So, while Kirk is dinking about with Khan, Sinestro is ready to take on the universe? Well, it could technically be unwinnable, but Kirk has always cheated and I don't expect Hal to play it straight either.
  • Doctor Who 12th #2.15 - Sort of a predictable ending in some ways - of course the couple would be getting together and of course it would be an alien threat that really pushed them together - but there were a lot of nice elements of silliness and fantasy in there as well.
  • Mar 29th
  • Titans Annual #1 - Wow, Aquaman is more than a little obnoxious in this one. On the other hand, he does have the right to take charge - just glad he gave it up for Batman. I didn't know that about Donna, but then Donna's origin has altered so much I have no idea who or what Donna is in this universe anymore. I mean, heck, Aqualad isn't exactly the same guy that I love in the Silver Age comics either. As for the mystery villain, I have my guesses, and I'm sure I'm wrong, but it'll be fun to find out.
  • Green Lantern/Space Ghost Special #1 - This was a nice fun one-shot, with a good character introduced. The back-up was... painful. But, hey, the main story was great!
  • Back To The Future: Biff to the Future #3 - Biff does more stuff, gets more famous and buys the town. It's not bad, but it's about how I figured it went down while watching the movie, so there isn't a whole lot of new in this particular issue. I suspect the next issue will be slightly more interesting on that front.
  • Doctor Who 9th #11 - Typical Doctor, getting himself caught to investigate something suspicious. Not so typical? His reaction to the treatment. Good thing Rose is there to help, even if she hasn't got much of a clue of what to do. This is a very nice set-up, and slightly unexpected - I was thinking we would see the events leading up to his arrest. This isn't the story I anticipated, and that's a good thing.
  • Rough Riders: On The Storm #2 - The readers knew Annie was alive, but it's clear that no one else did. In any case, this sets up some kind of cult going after the president, and has a nice cliffhanger, even. I have enjoyed this series, and I'm certainly curious to see what comes next.

MAME 0.188


Nouvelle release pour l'émulateur arcade par excellence, mais aussi ordi/consoles depuis qu'il a intégré MESS avec sa version 0.162.

Principales nouveautés :

Citation
MAME 0.188 comes to you with tales of perseverance, blind luck, and the kind of insanity you’d get from no-one else. By sheer chance, a DECO Cassette system Brian Troha picked up cheap happened to come with a set of graphics ROMs for Explorer. While the Explorer program cassette was dumped sixteen long years ago, the graphics ROMs have proved elusive until now. We can finally all enjoy this Tempest-inspired title from the early ’80s.

After much effort and rendering several boards inoperable, Peter Wilhelmsen and Morten Shearman Kirkegaard successfully extracted the programs from the DS5002FP protection modules on Gaelco World Rally 2 and Touch & Go. Yet another seemingly impenetrable protection scheme has been been emulated. Persistence has paid off. This is also a boon for people wishing to repair Gaelco games that have ceased to function after the lithium cell in the protection module has failed. After extracting the program from a working board, it’s possible to reprogram other boards running the same game.

As for MAMEdev-brand insanity, we are (to the best of our knowledge) the world’s first and only emulator for the INTELLEC® 4. This system was used to develop software for Intel’s earliest microprocessor family, the 4004 and 4040. We’ve even put together a user manual of sorts if by chance you want to see what interactive debugging was like in the ’70s. It has lots of fun LEDs and switches!

Fans of handheld LCD games will be pleased to see the steady stream of improvements: 0.188 adds support for several Konami and Tiger handhelds, and vector backgrounds have been added for Mario Bros, Mickey & Donald, and Cement Factory.

On the arcade side, we’ve added support for Operation Wolf SC. This is a version of the military-themed shooter Operation Wolf with reduced difficulty intended for small cabinets located in shopping centres (hence the SC). Children could stay out of trouble storming concentration camps and powder magazines while their parents shopped in peace. Another very interesting addition from Taito’s history is a very rare prototype of Bubble Bobble on Tokio hardware. It has different graphics and music, and includes a functional stage editor. Of course we’ve added an assortment of clones as usual, including versions of Act-Fancer, Kageki, Logger, Solar Assault, Street Fighter II, Taisen Idol-Mahjong Final Romance 2, and Xevious 3D/G.

I’ll finish by mentioning that save states and scheduled exits should now work properly in Emscripten builds (thanks to James Baicoianu), colours are fixed for Time Limit and Omega (thanks to ShouTime dumping the PROMs), and ROM identification (-romident verb) is even faster (under ten seconds on my old notebook).

Section MAME
          Dub, Scratch, and the Black Star. Lee Perry on the Mix        
by
Erik Davis
2006-12-23

Having abandoned the Jamaican tropics for the snowy peaks of Switzerland, the legendary reggae producer Lee Perry - aka Scratch, the Upsetter, the Super-Ape, Pipecock Jackson, Inspector Gadget, the Firmament Computer, and a cornucopia of other monikers and aliases - now makes his home in one of the quietest corners of Europe. A version of this piece originally appeared in 21C, issue 24, 1997It’s an odd but somehow fitting environment for Perry - not because precision clocks and banks have much to do with the intense, spooky, and profoundly playful records he’s known for, but because Lee Perry had always been something of a stranger in a strange land.

Though still capable of turning out brilliant tunes like “I Am a Madman” and “Secret Laboratory (Scientific Dancehall),” Perry’s current output pales next to the pivotal music he made in the 1960s and 70s, especially the Rastafarian psychedelia he cooked up at his Black Ark studios in the mid 1970s. During that incredibly prolific period (he produced over 1000 sides in ten years), Perry fused his eccentric spiritual vision with powerful protest music, made some of the most surreal experiments with dub reggae, and sculpted the first (and arguably greatest) records by Bob Marley and the Wailers. Utilizing low-tech studio equipment with a brilliance and panache that continues to astound record producers and music fans today, Perry earned a place alongside Phil Spector and Brian Wilson as a visionary studio wizard who transformed pop music production into an art form all its own.

These days, it’s Perry himself who is the work of art. He appears in public festooned with pendants, parts of machines, bits of tape, patches, buttons, and reflective mirrors. Everywhere he goes, it seems, he leaves a collage of scribbled notes, cryptic graffiti, scrap-metal idols, paintings of lions and food. Responding to interviewers with a flurry of rhymes, riffs, and puns, Perry turns innocent questions into a cosmological launching pad, revealing what John Corbett describes as “a world of hidden connections and secret pacts:” (128) multinational conspiracy theories, Old Testament prophecies, scatological rants, Rastafarian poetry, incantations of the Jamaican folk witchcraft known as obeah.

All this takes Perry to the edge of madness - at once his apparent mental instability and his intensely performative, almost shamanic, relationship with the chaos of creation. As Corbett points out, New World black culture has long linked the rhetoric of madness with excellence and innovation - musicians especially are praised for being “out of control,” “crazy,” “wild.” While Perry’s hermetic language games and comic-book metaphysics certainly owe something to his daily intake of what one observer described as an “inordinate amount of high quality herb,” his mischievous irony also shows all the signs of the trickster incarnate. Even his “madness” may be a trick. Some colleagues report that when it’s time to talk business, Perry drops the loopy patois and cuts to the chase; the head of Heartbeat Records says that he “plays fool to catch wise.”

Perry is also a kind of Caribbean techgnostic, deploying his almost supernatural imagination within the technological context of the modern recording studio. With its soundboards, mics, effects processors, and multiple-track tape manipulations, the studio is clearly a kind of musical machine. However passionate and spontaneous pop songs may sound on the radio, the music itself is as much a product of engineering as of performance. Despite their crude equipment, reggae producers like Perry, King Tubby, and Bunny Lee became artists in their own right - especially when it came to dub, the instrumental offshoot of reggae concocted entirely in the studio.

Modern Jamaican music begins with signals and machines. In the mid to late 1950s, when a diminutive Lee Perry first arrived in Kingston from the sticks, the popularity of mento - an upbeat and topical Afro-Caribbean music similar to Trinidadian calypso - was giving way to a rage for American rhythm&blues. At that time, powerful and increasingly independent U.S. radio stations were turning away from the old national radio networks towards an inexpensive and popular alternative: DJs playing records for local markets. For the first time, signals were beamed directly at African-American communities. And when the weather was right, Jamaican kids churning through their radio dials would tune into Southern radio stations, and they went especially wild for the gritty, saucy sounds of New Orleans R&B.

From this enthusiasm sprang Jamaica’s “sound systems” - mobile discos that would invade halls and auditoriums with high-wattage amplifiers, turntables, DJs, imported American vinyl, and massive speaker stacks. Besides transforming the invisible figure of the radio DJ into a performer, sound systems also gave their American grooves an unmistakable Jamaican twist by severely pumping up the bass. Amplifying their woofers to the max, sound systems transformed R&B’s low end into a veritable force of nature - the kind of bass that does not just propel or anchor dancers but saturates their bones with near cosmic vibrations.

In the late 1950s, the sound systems were ruled by a host of colorful characters like Duke Reid, who lorded over his “Treasure Isle” dances with a cartridge belt, an enormous gilt crown, and a shotgun that he would occasionally brandish when the competition between sound systems boiled to a head. These fierce rivalries had an obviously economic edge, but their roots lie in the competitive performance traditions of many West African cultures. The fight over customers waged by sound system producers was also a style war, their fabricated alter egos, costumes, and elaborate verbal boasts taking on an almost ritualistic - yet constantly reinvented - dimension. Such style wars show up in various guises across the African diaspora, from the taunts and “disses” of rappers to the yearly carnival competitions of Trinidad and Brazil, when various roving “bands” try to top each other and woo the crowd with music, dance, and costume. As Lee Perry said, “Competition must be in the music to make it go.” (Grand Royal 1995: 69)

Jamaica sound systems were unique in that this premodern, almost “tribal” competition was played out across the modern landscape of mechanically reproduced recordings. Rivalries were not so much a “battle of the bands” as a kind of technological and information warfare: who had the heaviest bass, who had the hottest records. In the 1950s, many DJs considered their imported sides exclusive, buying up all available copies of a new record or flying to the States to buy fresh discs. Spies would show up at rival sound system parties, peering at the record labels over the DJ’s shoulder, and in response, DJs would scratch off labels or stick on false ones.

Here was an environment where a trickster like Lee Perry could thrive. Rejected by Duke Reid, who was spooked by something in his eyes, Perry went to work for Clement “Sir Coxone” Dodd’s rival “Downbeat” system, where he served as a talent scout, runner, gofer and occasional monkey-wrencher. Perry told one interviewer how he once put out the rumor that a certain fellow was selling really “dread sides.” Duke Reid went and bought them all without listening to them first. “And they all old stuff, duds!” For such antics, Duke’s men once stormed a Downbeat party and started punching people out, knocking Scratch unconscious.

With the decline of R&B in the US market and Jamaica’s independence from Britain in 1962, homegrown mutations begin to dominate sound systems. The most prominent was ska, a hopped-up, horn-driven and very danceable music whose intense offbeat punches one apocryphal story attributes to the interference patterns that sliced up radio signals from the States. Perry started churning out ska at Coxone’s Studio One, cutting edgy and punchy songs like “By Saint Peter” and “Chicken Scratch” - the latter earning “Scratch” his most lasting nickname.

Perry always had something of a persecution complex, and frequently turned on former friends and business partners. In part this reflects the cut-throat environment of the Jamaican record industry, where what Dick Hebdidge describes as “tough and wily” producers often acted like pirates. But with Perry - who once knowingly sold thousands of copies of Bob Marley and the Wailers’ Soul Revolution II with the wrong record inside - one can also see the mischievous and occasionally malicious hand of the trickster. Perry certainly incorporated personal attacks into his “mad” persona: a number of Perry songs badmouth former associates or mumble threats concerning obeah men, while the 1985 cut “Judgment Inna Babylon” accused the head of Island records of literally being a vampire.

After splitting acrimoniously from two top studios, Perry started up his own Upsetter studios in 1968, and soon released a tune attacking his former boss Joe Gibbs. Anticipating today’s sampling craze, “People Funny Boy” included a crying baby in the mix in order to show how “upset” Perry was. But “People Funny Boy” also slowed down and reshuffled the usual rock steady rhythm, a bass-heavy rhythm that by the late 1960s had replaced the more simplistic beats of ska. In doing so, Perry helped engineer the beat that would come to dominate Jamaican music in the 1970s: reggae.

Though reggae recalls the relaxed rhythms of the old secular mento music, it has a meditative sustenance that some compare to religious church music or the Nyabhingi drumming of Rastafarian gatherings. Perry claims he just wanted to top his rivals with a new sound that had a “rebel bass” and a “waxy beat - like you stepping in glue.” But the inspiration he cites was a Pocomania revivalist church he passed one night after drinking some beer:

(I) hear the people inside make a wail and say, ‘let’s make a sound fe catch the vibration of the people!’ Them was in the spirit and them tune me spiritually. That’s where the thing comes from, ‘cos them Poco people getting sweet. (Grand Royal 1995: 62)

Pocomania was one of a number of independent revivalist churches that sprung up during Jamaica’s “Great Awakening” of the 1860s, churches which exuberantly fused African and Protestant performance styles, images, and traditions. Pocomania leaned to the African side of things, its Pentecostal-style services owing an obvious debt to African possession ceremonies. Worshippers would dance counter-clockwise to powerful drums while breathing very deeply; this “trumping” would sometimes brings on possession - the “little madness” that lent the church its name.

So at the root of the reggae we have a little Lee Perry madness, a tale of catching vibrations and tuning into spiritual trance. But Perry played a far more direct role in developing the religious dimension of reggae when he began writing and recording songs with Bob Marley and the Wailers. The Wailers were a talented Studio One group known for sweet vocals, American soul covers, and a rebel stance. As residents of Trenchtown, Kingston’s most notorious slum, the Wailers were associated with Jamaica’s “rude boys” - tough, poor and restless urban kids who flaunted authority (and sometimes the law). By the late 1960s, Marley and the Wailers were also turning toward Rastafari, a rebellious and extraordinary religious counter-culture that wove together Black Pride, an “Ethiopian” reworking of Biblical tenets, and a prophetic opposition to “Babylon” - the Rastafarian archetype of the modern nation-state, with its police, economic injustice, and corrosive lifestyles. Perry collaborated with the future superstar on some of his earliest and most powerful songs, tunes that mixed sharp social commentary (“a hungry mob is an angry mob”) with an ardent yearning for Jah.

Since the trappings of Rastafari have been packaged by the international reggae market and embraced - often superficially - by legions of white college kids, punks, and hippies, we should scratch a bit beneath the surface of this vital New World religion. Like America’s Black Muslims, the roots of Rastafari lie with the ethno-religious worldview sculpted by the Jamaican reformer Marcus Garvey. Founding the Universal Negro Improvement Association in 1914, Garvey attempted to uplift and unite New World Africans by emphasizing the superiority of the black man and the glories of African civilization. Anticipating the Africentricity of today, Garvey preached the love of a black deity, a “God of Ethiopia.” He also called for repatriation to the motherland, even founding a shipping and transportation company called the Black Star Line with the intention of transplanting New World blacks to Liberia.

But Garvey never visited Africa, and his vision of Ethiopia had more to do with the visceral power of the religious imagination than with the concrete geo-political realities of an African continent struggling with the ravages of European colonization. By Garvey’s time, Black Christian churches had already embraced the Biblical Ethiopia as a potent allegorical image of spiritual fulfillment, the millennial “Zion” that offered both a redemptive future and a glorious origin. Though Garvey’s call for repatriation offered black folks an apparently concrete solution to the nightmare of abduction and slavery, the Africa he offered was a landscape of religious desire - a virtual world.

When Garvey quit Jamaica for the United States, he reportedly left his followers with this potent prophecy: “Look to Africa for the crowning of a Black King; he shall be the Redeemer.” In 1930, when Haile Sellasie - aka Ras Tafari - was installed as King of Ethiopia, Garvey’s Jamaican followers believed they had found their living god, and Rastafari was born. Ethiopia has been Judeo-Christian longer than most nations on the earth, and Sellasie’s bloodline was supposed to stretch back to King Solomon, his official titles - like “King of Kings” and “Lion of the Tribe of Judah” - drawn directly from Biblical prophecy. Reading their own political and cultural desires into theses Rorschach blots of messianic allegory, Rastafarians transformed the distant king into the Book of Daniel’s bearded Ancient of Days, “the hair of whose head was like wool, whose feet were like unto burning brass.”

As with Elijah Mohammed’s Black Muslims, the early Rastafarians also racialized their theology. As the religious scholar Leonard Barrett explains, “the White’s god is actually the devil, the instigator of all evils that have come upon the world, the god of hate, blood, oppression, and war; the Black god is the god of ‘Peace and Love’ ” (Barrett 1977: 108). Though contemporary Rastafarians speak of “One God” more than a black god, it’s important to note the loosely “gnostic” elements here. Along with the Manichaean tension between the two gods, we have the old gnostic vision of a dark tyrant god who rules over souls in exile. According to Barrett, the early Rastafarians believed that slavery was initially a punishment for their sins, but that “they have long since been pardoned and should have returned to Ethiopia long ago” (111). Only the evil trickery of the slavemaster prevents them from returning to the heavenly home where their living King awaits.

Both the separatist practices and the emotional core of Rastafarian life can be traced to this deeply felt sense that the Rastaman is in Babylon, but not of it. As Silja Joanna Aller Talvi writes, “From the Rasta’s perspective, the whole world is full of Babylon, and Babylon systems are constantly seeking to oppress (or ‘downpress’) and exploit the African.” Rejecting the authorities of this world, Rastafarians attempt to create a separate “God-like culture,” in part by embracing the organic world of nature as a kind of anti-modern alternative to Babylon. Most Rastafarians are vegetarian, eat only “ital” (fresh and healthy) food, and reject commercial products and medicines; many also grow their hair in dreadlocks - the “natural” shape of long kinky hair that’s washed but neither combed, cut or treated. Though Rastafari was spawned in the slums, many “locksmen” abandoned the urban hustle for lives as fisherman or simple farmers; those who remained were shunned by most respectable Jamaicans as “Blackhearts” or boogiemen.

Though the movement had a handful of charismatic leaders early on, and today includes organized sects like the Twelve Tribes of Israel and even members of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, most Rastafarians abhor institutions, grounding their faith in their own direct participation in the divinity and holiness of Jah. As Ras Sam Brown said, “The Rastafarians movement is not a movement with a central focus” (Barrett 1977: 173). Somewhat like the early gnostic sects, most Rastafarians also believe that the Bible is an intentionally “mistranslated” document whose scrambled signals must be read selectively and allegorically in the light of personal revelation.

One of the brightest guiding lights of Rastafari is the flame of the “chalice,” stuffed with sticky marijuana buds that crackle during inhalation. Addressing the sacramental use of marijuana among Rastafarians, Barrett argues that “the real center of the movement’s religiosity is the revelatory dimensions brought about by the impact of the ‘holy herb.’” Long a Jamaican folk medicine, marijuana was probably introduced to the island by indentured East Indian Hindus, who gave the plant its popular name “ganja” and may have inspired its religious use (many of India’s wandering mendicant “sadhus” also wear dreadlocks, eat vegetarian food and smoke hashish in a religious context). For all their glassy, bloodshot stares, it’s wrong to think of Rastafarians as “stoners”; hardcore adherents consume ganja as a sacrament and rarely use other drugs or alcohol. One Rasta explained the role of ganja in strongly gnostic terms, though it is a gnosticism shot through with Rastafari’s powerful social consciousness:

Man basically is God but this insight can come to man only with the use of the herb. When you use the herb, you experience yourself as God. With the use of the herb you can exist in this dismal state of reality that now exists in Jamaica…When you are a God you deal or relate to people like a God. In this way you let your light shine, and when each of us lets his light shine we are creating a God-like culture. (Barrett 1977: 217).

Barrett explains that to the Rastafarian, “the average Jamaican is so brainwashed by colonialism that his entire system is programmed in the wrong way…To rid his mind of these psychic forces his head must be ‘loosened up,’ something done only through the use of the herb” (216). As one Montego Bay “dread” described the plant ally, “It gives I a good meditation; it is a door inside” (130).

Of course, music can also serve as a door inside. The chants and “churchical” beats of traditional Nyabhingi drumming played a vital role in Rastafarian “Grounations,” communal celebrations notable for their ital feasts, ganja smoking, and mystical theologizing. Though not directly influencing the reggae beat, Nyabhingi’s meditative rhythms did infuse reggae with the sense that music can help “loosen up” the shackles of everyday consciousness, sparking the inner light of righteous contemplation.

Bob Marley was not the first musicians to bring Rastafari into Jamaican dance music, but with earthy hymns like “400 Years,” “African Herbsman” and “Duppy Conqueror”, he and Perry injected folkloric nectar into their spare and sinewy arrangements with divine panache. Like American soul, but even more so, reggae would rapidly become a commercial product of the popular recording industry that nonetheless derived much of its power and appeal from a deeply religious set of images and desires. By no means was all reggae Rastafarian, but with “message” producers like Perry leading the way, Jamaica would produce perhaps the juiciest spiritual protest music of the 1970s. By the time of his death at the end of the decade, Bob Marley would rear his lionlike mane over a global stage as the first Third World pop star, his plaintive “redemption songs” spreading the message of Rastafari across a shrinking planet desperate for spiritual heroes.

Though Marley’s records were cleverly packaged by Island’s Chris Blackwell for a white rock audience, much of their appeal derives from the unshakable authenticity of the man, the righteous integrity he shared with many of reggae’s stars. In the ’70s, the cries and beats of Jamaica’s new “roots music” seemed to spring, not only form the hearts of suffering black folks, but from the island soil itself. You could hear these roots in the music’s moist guitars and stoned pace, its “natural mystic” vibrations, and its crunchy, spongy beats (Marley called it “earth-feeling music”). And you could feel the roots as well in the virtual Africa that hovered on the messianic horizon of the music, an ancient motherland and future kingdom built from the gnostic longings of souls exiled in the brave New World of Babylon.

But dub music, reggae’s great technological mutant, is a pure artifact of the machine, and has little to do with earth, flesh, or authenticity. To create dub, producers and engineers manipulate preexisting tracks of music recorded in an analog - as opposed to digital - fashion on magnetic tape (today’s high-end studios encode music as distinct digital bits rather than magnetic “waves”). Dubmasters saturate individual instruments with reverb, phase, and delay; abruptly drop voices, drums, and guitars in and out of the mix; strip the music down to the bare bones of rhythm and then build it up again through layers of inhuman echoes, electronic ectoplasm, cosmic rays. Good dub sounds like the recording studio itself has begun to hallucinate.

Dub arose from doubling - the common Jamaican practice of reconfiguring or “versioning” a prerecorded track into any number of new songs. Dub calls the apparent “authenticity” of roots reggae into question because dub destroys the holistic integrity of singer and song. It proclaims a primary postmodern law: there is no original, no first ground, no homeland. By mutating its repetitions of previously used material, dub adds something new and distinctly uncanny, vaporizing into a kind is doppelgänger music. Despite the crisp attack of its drums and the heaviness of its bass, it swoops through empty space, spectral and disembodied. Like ganja, dub opens the “inner door.” John Corbett even links the etymology of the word “dub” with duppie (Jamaican patois for ghost). Burning Spear entitled the dub version of his great Marcus Garvey album Garvey’s Ghost, and Joe Gibbs responded to Lee Perry’s production of Bob Marley’s “Duppie Conqueror” with the cut “Ghost Capturer.” Perry described dub as “the ghost in me coming out” (Toop 1995: 129). Dub music not only drums up the ghost in the machine, but gives the ghost room to dance.

Though he became one of its most surreal experimenters, Lee Perry did not invent dub reggae. That honor goes to Osbourne Ruddock, aka King Tubby, an electrical engineer who fixed radios and other appliances in Kingston in the 1950s and who built his own sound system amplifiers to get the big bass sound. A musical genius, Tubby was also a gearhead, a tinkerer, an experimental geek. After discovering that he could remix the backing track of a popular tune into a new piece of music, Tubby played these “dub plate specials” to enthusiastic crowds at his Home Town Hi-Fi dances, where Tubby would stand behind his customized mixing console, tweaking the beats on the fly while the DJ U Roy “toasted” over the rhythms.

Jamaican trends spread like wildfire, but Tubby stayed ahead of the dub game by working with top producers like Bunny Lee and Lee Perry while endlessly tinkering with what Prince Buster called the “implements of sound.” Tubby constantly toyed with his four-track console, jury-rigging echo delay units and created sliding faders that allowed him to bring tracks smoothly in and out of the mix. He also just played tricks with the machine, generating his famous “Thunderclap” sound by physically hitting the spring reverb unit, or using frequency test tones to send an ominous sonar through the depths of dub’s watery domain. Though Tubby gave his records names like Dub from the Roots and The Roots of Dub, he had genetically engineered those roots into wires.

However, dub did restore the roots of reggae’s own “dread ridims” by conjuring the ghost of West African polyrhythms via the unlikely mediation of the machine. Though modern Jamaican dance music adheres to the same 4/4 beat that drives most popular music, reggae was already unusual in accenting the second and fourth beats of the measure and in “dropping” the initial beat, all of which produced the music’s unmistakable pulse. By anchoring the beat with the bass guitar rather than the drum kit, reggae also freed up the drums to explore subtler and more complex percussive play. As Dick Hebdidge points out, by the end of the ’70s, drummers like Sly Dunbar were playing their kits like jazz musicians, improvising on cymbals, snares and tom toms to “produce a multi-layered effect, rather like West African religious drumming” (Hebdidge 1987: 82).

Dub launched these already tangled ridims into orbit, using technological effects to thicken the beats and to stretch and fold the passage of time. Besides stripping the music down to pure drums and bass and adding raw percussion, Dubmasters introduced counter-rhythms by multiplying the beats through echo and reverb while splicing in what the producer Bunny Lee called “a whole heap a noise.” And by abruptly dropping guitars, snares, hi-hats and bass in and out of the mix, they created a virtual analog of the tripping, constantly shifting effects of West African polymetric drumming. Though the hallucinogenic effects of dub are usually attributed to its “spacey” effects and the role of ganja in both its production and consumption, the almost psychic pleasures of the music also arise from its silly putty beats and their ability to yank the rug out from under your deeply ingrained sense of a central organizing rhythm.

By giving flight to the producer’s technical imagination, dub sculpted a sort of science-fiction aesthetic alongside reggae’s crunchy Africentric mythos. As Luke Erlich wrote, “If reggae is Africa in the New World, dub is Africa on the moon” (Corbett 1994: 23) Just look at the cover art: Mad Professor’s Science and the Witchdoctor sets circuit boards and robot figures next to mushrooms and fetish dolls, while Scientist Encounters Pac-Man at Channel One shows the Scientist manhandling the mixing console as if it were some madcap machine out of Marvel comics. It’s important to note that in Jamaican patois, “science” refers to obeah, the African grab-bag of herbal, ritual, and occult lore popular on the island. And as Robert Pelton points out, the figure of the scientist is not so distant from the spirit of the trickster that runs throughout this tale: “Both seek to befriend the strange, not so much striving to ‘reduce’ anomaly as to use it as a passage into a larger order…like the scientist, the trickster always yokes just this world to a suddenly larger world” (Pelton ????: 268).

And Lee Perry continued to serve as reggae’s trickster king. Not only did he make some remarkably spare and intense forays into dub, but he applied dub’s spectral aesthetics to the rest of his increasingly surreal, popular, and unorthodox productions. In 1974, the producer built Black Ark Studios, destined to become the launching pad of reggae’s most surreal and moving tunes. A year later, he acquired a demo version of a unique phaser from the States; using it alongside with a Roland Space Echo - a primitive drum machine with loads of reverb - Perry whipped up multi-layered cakes of noise, polyrhythms, ghostly percussion and sounds lifted from other records. He took advantage of anomalies, especially of his limited 4-track. As the producer Brian Foxworthy explains, Perry would fill up the four available tracks and then mix them onto a single track on another machine, freeing up three tracks to add more effects and percussion. Like xeroxing a xerox, each go-around added more noise to the signal, yet the very “decay” of the signal adding a moist, organic depth to the music. It’s a classic example of the trickster’s mischievous relationship to disruption and chaos. As Foxworthy told Grand Royal magazine, “Tape saturation, distortion and feedback were all used to become part of the music, not just added to it” (Grand Royal 1995: 64).

Black Ark was more than Jamaica’s most innovative studio; it was the visible vehicle of Perry’s passionate otherworldly imagination. It’s walls were covered with portraits of Selassie, magazine collages, lions and Stars of David, and visitors would sometimes find Scratch planting records and tapes in the garden. As Bob Mack writes, “By the mid-70s, Perry’s Black Ark had become the cultural/spiritual center of hip Kingston and birthplace of reggae’s most conscious black pride anthems, all of which were either written or coaxed out of the artist by Perry (who at that point was beginning to infuse all his productions with the complex set of Christian, African, Arthurian, and Jamaican folk references that comprise his current cosmology)” (Grand Royal 1995: 62). Soon after Haile Selassie died in 1975, Perry and Marley helped reaffirm the faith for millions by cutting the ardent “Jah Lives.”

Even the name of Perry’s studio was archetypal, resonating with any number of prophetic crafts: the Ark of the Covenant, Noah’s craft, Garvey’s Black Star Line - all messianic revisions to those vessels that abducted Africans into slavery. But the Black Star that Perry followed lied in the depths of space. In an interview with David Toop, Scratch discussed Black Ark in such extraterrestrial terms:

It was like a space craft. You could hear space in the tracks. Something there was like a holy vibration and a godly sensation. Modern studios, they have a different set-up. They set up a business and a money-making concern. I set up like an ark….You have to be the Ark to save the animals and nature and music (Toop 1995: 114).

Perry’s unique fusion of premodern myth and postmodern machines not only shapes his lyrics (in one of his weirdest songs, Perry warns “scavengers,” “vampires” and “sons of Lucifer” that “Jah Jah set a super trap / to capture you bionic rats”), but infuses his technological practice. Exploiting equipment that was archaic even for its day, Perry became a dub alchemist, weaving magnetic, tape, wires and circuit boards into the playful web of his magical thinking. Indeed, Perry spoke about his relationship to technology in explicitly animistic terms:

The studio must be like a living thing.. The machine must be live and intelligent. Then I put my mind into the machine by sending it through the controls and the knobs or into the jack panel. The jack panel is the brain itself, so you’ve got to patch up the brain and make the brain a living man, but the brain can take what you’re sending into it and live (Toop 1995: 113).

Improvising his cuts on the fly, Perry would whirl like a dervish behind his SoundCraft mixing board, blow ganja smoke directly onto the recording reels, even drink the alcohol used to clean the tape heads when he ran out of Dragon Stout. This erratic behavior came to a head in the late 1970s, when Perry started glimpsing UFOs, kicked anyone with dreadlocks out of the Black Ark, and covered its walls with deranged scatological prophecies. In 1979, during what could generously be called a bout of severely eccentric behavior, Perry trashed and burned his studio, and according to some reports wound up briefly in a mental institution.

The question of Perry’s sanity opens up the tangled relationship between tricks, madness, art, and the prophetic imagination, but what is most important about Perry and his astounding musical legacy is how they highlight an often ignored strain of New World African culture: a techno-visionary tradition that looks as much toward science fiction futurism as toward magical African roots. One finds this fusion in the experimental cosmological jazz of Sun Ra, who also pioneered the use of synthesizers and African percussion; in Jimi Hendrix’s “electric church music,” which psychedelicized the guitar with feedback and studio effects; in the juicy cosmic technofunk of Parliament-Funkadelic mastermind George Clinton, which, as Cornel West writes, “both Africanizes and technologizes Afro-American popular music” (West ????: 93). Hip hop music also began with a totally unexpected redeployment of turntable and mixing technology (introduced to the South Bronx by the Jamaican DJ Kool Herc), creating what Tricia Rose calls “an experimental and collective space where contemporary issues and ancestral forces are worked through simultaneously” (Rose 1994: 59). Though predominantly secular, hip hop nonetheless hosts an intense subgenre of rappers who belong to the Five Percent Nation, a street-wise offshoot of the Nation of Islam. In contrast with the worldly concerns of gangsta rappers, acts like Brand Nubian, the Poor Righteous Teachers, Paris, and Lakim Shabazz fuse hard-hitting political prophecies, righteous moralizing, and bizarre numerology into a forceful amalgam of Black Pride and imaginative Africentric “science.”

This loosely “gnostic” strain of Afrodiasporic science-fiction emerges from the improvised confrontation between modern technology and the prophetic imagination, a confrontation rooted in the alienated conditions of black life in the New World. According to Greg Tate, who sees science fiction as continuing a vein of philosophical inquiry and technological speculation that begins with Egyptian theories of the afterlife, “black people live the estrangement that science fiction writers imagine” (Dery 1995: 208). As Perry’s own scathing protest music proves, the prophetic art that arises from this condition of perpetual exile does not simply “escape” from the pragmatic demands of politics. But neither does it deny the ark of the imagination that lies on the other side of the inner door, a tricky craft capable of navigating through the shadowed valleys of this world, guided by a black star whose very invisibility renders its virtual possibilities infinite.

Right now there’s a whole lot of buzz about sex robots. Some people are really excited about them, and think we’ll be marrying robots by 2050. Other people are really worried about them, and are organizing whole campaigns against sex robots. This week, we travel to a future where sex robots are realized, and talk about everything from warranties to ethics.  

[A note: if you listen to our show with or near young kids be aware that today’s episodes discusses the future of sex, and goes into some detail about sex toys, sex work and other sexy time things. If your kiddos are ready for a calm, reasonable discussion of sex and the sex industry, carry on! If you’re not there yet, that’s cool, but maybe skip this one.]

This week we have three experts helping us think through how we get to sex robots, and what we do when we get there. A.V. Flox is journalist who covers the intersection of sex, law and technology. She is very skeptical of all the sexbot hype, and says we have a long way to go before we’ll see anything remotely like an actual sex robot. Madeline Ashby is a science fiction writer and futurist who’s been a guest on the show before. A few of her books involve sex robots, and she thinks that before we get anything human we’ll start to see cartoony looking forms. And Shelly Ronen is a sociology PhD student at NYU who studies sex and sex object production. Ronen says that it’s possible we won’t demand full-on humanoid robots, but instead be totally satisfied by less human-like machines.

Together the three of them walk us through all the things we might have to sort out before and after the rise of the sex robots. How do you keep them clean? Where do you store them? What happens if they break? What will they look like? How do you handle the uncanny valley? Who should use them, and how does their existence impact sex workers?

You can read an optimistic take on sex robots in the book Love and Sex With Robots by David Levy and you can find more on Levy’s outlook on robots here. Levy is optimistic about sex robots — not only does he think they’re coming quickly, he also thinks they could have some very positive impacts. On the other side of the table is the Campaign Against Sex Robots. You can guess how they feel about these devices, and their argument is generally summed up here. Essentially, they feel that prostitution is bad, and sex robots would be a form of prostitution and encourage it, therefore sex robots are bad. This is an argument that many people disagree with, including sex workers who point out that many of them enjoy and would like to keep their jobs.

Plus, we have to make this a lot sexier before it will work for most people:

To top everything off, here are some fun fact about our long tradition of wanting to create and love female robots:

  • Robots were originally assumed to be male. The 1920’s science fiction play R.U.R. that gave us the word robot also gave us the term for a female robot: a robotess.
  • The term “gynoid” (which you don’t see quite as much anymore) was coined by the writer Gwyneth Jones in her 1985 novel Divine Endurance.
  • The term “fembot” first shows up in 1976, in a script for the show The Bionic Woman.
  • Brigitte Helm played “Maschinenmensch,” the female robot in the iconic 1927 movie Metropolis. Apparently her costume was extremely uncomfortable, and other actors would apparently slip coins into various openings out of pity for her. She used those coins to buy chocolate.

TRANSCRIPT

Hello! And welcome to Flash Forward. I’m Rose, and I’m your host.

Flash Forward is a podcast about the future. Every week we explore a possible, or not so possible, future scenario, and try to really think through what it might be like. Each episode we start with a little field trip to the future, before dialing it back to now, and discussing that future with experts.

Go it? Great.

A quick note about today’s episode — if you’re listening with or near young kids be aware that today’s show discusses the future of sex, and goes into some detail about sex toys, sex work and other sexy time things. If your kiddos are ready for a calm, reasonable discussion of sex and the sex industry, carry on! If you’re not there yet, that’s cool, but maybe skip this one.

Okay, with that out of the way. Let’s go to the year 2086.

MUSIC: Alaclair,
Female voice: In today’s world, it can be hard to find a moment to connect. We all spend so much time near one another, and yet, can never seem to get truly close. Dates, dinners, movies they all blow by in the wind, but can never quite scratch that deeper itch. Now there’s a way to feel true affection, true partnership, without the boredom of endless dates. Simply add Hadaly to your life, and you’ll find peace, happiness, passion… and more.

MUSIC: BoxCat
Male voice: Do you find your closet space cramped? No room for that new cyborg lover you just brought home? Come on down to Margot’s Discount Closet Solutions! We’re the only place in town that offers custom cabinets to hold, charge and hide your bedroom companions. Equipped with adaptors and sockets galore, our Closet Solutions have all the room your frisky robot friend needs, and can even hold its clothes and cleaning supplies. You won’t see another custom cabinet deal like this! Our cabinets hold all major models — whatever you’ve picked, tall, short, big, small, horned or winged, we can make a custom cabinet for you, no questions asked!

MUSIC: Strong Suit
Male voice: Do you ever find that your desires are … unconventional? You want more than your partners can give. Something stronger, something bigger, something… more intense. It can be hard to ask, but it’s easy to program. Let the Leopold step in, and make your desires a reality.

/////

Rose: Okay! So, in this future we’ve invented robots for sex. Sex robots. This is a thing some people are really excited about. And that other people are really worried about. There’s a whole organization called the Campaign Against Sex Robots, which argues that they’re a terrible idea. Other people think they should be used to help eradicate sex work, or help people with dangerous desires like rape fantasies or pedohpilia. Some people think we’re going to be marrying robots by 2050. But other people are… less optimistic about that.

A.V. Flox: I think there’s a really big disconnect between what we have achieved and what we have yet to achieve in order to arrive at a place where sex robots are a reality.

Rose: That’s A.V. Flox, she’s a journalist who covers the intersection of sex, law and technology. And she says that for all the buzz about sex robots right now, we have a long way to go before we’ll see anything remotely like an actual sex robot. You see, making a sex robot is hard. Right now the products out there are really just sex dolls, that might have a couple of pre-programmed phrases in them. There are some devices that you can connect to the Internet, to feel like you’re having sex with someone who’s in another room, or another continent. But sex robots, full on walking talking sex having robots, are a huge technical challenge.

Flox: They’re going to require nanotechnology to replicate non uniform skin, and they’re going to require a sort of AI complete natural language understanding, to say nothing of realistic personality simulations. And I think this is a really important story because sex robots aren’t just going to be sleeves or dildos. They’re not going to be simple enough for a single genius to just put together the way that they might a haptic dildo or a chatbot.

But even before we get to realistic skin or convincing artificial intelligence or any of that. We first have to make them them stand up.
Shelly Ronen: The things that do exist, like the dolls, because of the stance, they were designed to have a stance that is most effective for intercourse so they have this frog like stance with their legs wide open. And they can’t even stand on their feet, they have hooks in the back of their heads and they have to be hooked in, in order to have a standing like posture. So there’s some design issues here that these makers are going to have to deal with pretty soon. All the unseen pieces of labor that women are constantly doing in their heterosexual relationships, one of which is just being able to move themselves! Who knew that that was something they would miss about us?

That’s Shelly Ronen, a sociology PhD student at NYU who studies sex and sex objects.

Those sex dolls you can buy right now, for about $7,000, weigh anywhere between 65 and 105 pounds, which is a lot of dead weight to have to move around. And if you’ve ever watched any videos online of robots walking and moving and… falling down. You know that our current state of the art robotic motion isn’t exactly sexy.

Now, once they can stand and move, they have to then look and feel and act convincing. All of this is to say that making sex robots is going to be really hard, and it’s going to require a lot people engineers, roboticists, sex toy experts, computer scientists.

Flox: Which means licensing and investment capital

Rose: And Flox says that that is the big challenge.

Flox: The adage that sex sells is true unless you’re actually trying to sell sex.

Rose: You see, in the United States at least, companies working in the so called “adult industries” often have a really hard time finding investors, getting loans, convincing credit card companies to carry them, all the things that a business might need to actually get going. Tech platforms like the Apple App store and Google Play won’t approve any kind of adult content. Search engines don’t show adult content unless you specifically ask for it, and even then some of it is filtered out. This is all to say that it’s going to be pretty hard to get the money and backing required to make a sex robot any time soon.

Flox: I think if people did a little less daydreaming about sex robots and a little more lobbying for the right of innovators to access loans, payment processors and funding I’d be a little more optimistic about it but I’m really not holding my breath.

But this is a podcast about the future, and EVENTUALLY we’ll probably get sex robots. We just can’t seem to help ourselves.

Rose: Do you think that this is inevitable?

Madeline Ashby: Um yeah, yeah on some level.

Rose: That’s Madeline Ashby, a science fiction author and futurist.

Ashby: And I say that not because I think that people are perverts, I do think that we are all perverts, but I think that it’s inevitable because humanoid robots are inevitable. The fascination of creating life and creating something in our own image is baked in at the biblical level, and baked in even at the level of fairy tale. The creation of pinocchio or other life or even in modern fairy tale terms The Velveteen Rabbit, if you love something enough it becomes real.

Rose: She says that to get around some of the issues of authenticity and realism, the first sex robots might not look particularly human.

Ashby: I think we are more likely to see a cartoony look first. I think that that’s how you skirt the uncanny valley problem, is to make a more cartoony or anime like or video game like face and body and appearance. Like red eyes and blue hair. Not only because Japan and other places is a huge market for it, but I think it’s weirdly easier to say I want to sleep with this thing that couldn’t possibly exist, because then it’s not a replacement for anything or anyone. It’s not a replacement for a person, it’s not a substitute for a relationship that you might have, it’s very definitely the achievement a fantasy.

Rose: Right now the dolls you can buy are highly customizable, you can choose everything from what kind of pubic hair you want, to what kind of freckles you like, to things like adding cat ears or having interchangeable genitalia.

Ronen: Actually I asked Real Doll, Abyss Creations, how often that is, and they said a lot more than you would imagine, a lot more of the orders actually request that the body have a penis but also have breasts and a female face So I think there’s potential for something subversive there

Rose: Now since this show is all about overthinking things, I want to talk a little bit about the actual logistics of having a sex robot in your house. Like, where do you store it?

Flox: It’s not just the robot, it’s also making a space in your life and your home for this robot

Rose: And, how do you keep it clean? Sex toys have their own cleaning protocols that, lots of people don’t follow, and when you scale that up to a human sized device, it sounds like a lot of work to keep it from getting… kind of gross.

Flox: Oh yeah and this is something you run into a lot when you talk to people that work in the adult and novelty industry, which is the euphemism for sex toys. There seems to be a disconnect between the sex toy and the ownership of the sex toy and the caring and maintenance of the toy and high school level chemistry. People don’t really think about this they’ve got a bunch of vibrators they just throw in a box or in a drawer, and they’re mostly all silicone or some variation, and they’re confused when one of them melts or gets discolored, it’s like ‘what’s going on why is this breaking?’ And it’s like well you know you can’t use silicone lube on a silicon toy you can’t just let them rub up on eachother because chemistry works in not very mysterious ways. Please bag your toys please use the correct lube. But we don’t really seem to understand this. So when you start actually investing in a very large purchase like a sex robot that is going to have very complex skin. Oh I can only imagine what a pain in the ass it would be to have a sex doll in cyberskin that you have wash and then dust lightly with powders so that it’s not sticky.

Rose But even if you take great care of the robot, it could, still, break. And when it does, what do you do?

Ronen: I mean sex is a very vigorous activity, most likely if someone is using a doll they probably will want to enact all sorts of fantasies that may involve damage.

Rose: Today, there are “doll doctors” that go around and help fix sex dolls that have broken. But if sex robots become more common, companies will have to figure out how to handle returns and fixes. Or maybe people will be able to do small repairs at home.

Shelly: I think 3D printing technology will probably dovetail nicely with the sex robot manufacturing, and presumably any customization you might want you’ll be able to go to the 3D printer in your living room and print her out a new nipple, a marilyn monroe mole because you want that now.

Rose: These robots will have to be tested pretty rigorously too, to make sure they don’t malfunction during use. Because you’re kind of vulnerable during sex.

Ashby: You don’t want unsafe at any speed in your bedroom.

Rose: And they’ll also probably come with some kind of manual that outlines what you are and are not allowed to do with the robot without voiding the warranty.

Ashby: It’s as sexy as an Ikea manual, and I’m imagining the poor graphic designer who has to put this together in multiple languages, or in the Ikea style where there’s very little language and just diagrams. Imagine unfolding this manual, or more likely looking at it on your phone — and realizing a) nothing is written down and b) you have to figure this out only from diagrams. These are in red these positions are in green so I think that means it’s okay unless I happen to be color blind in which case I’m screwed.

Rose: If you do try to do something with the robot it can’t do, maybe it starts beeping, or maybe it tells you to stop, or maybe it gives you a little shock.

Ashby: I’m sorry I can’t do that, that kind of thing, sure, or, why don’t we try something else, or, what have you.

Rose: Who is the voiceover person who has to read this out.

Rose: Oh and along with making the robots convincing and sexy and clean and safe, they also need to be secure. You don’t want your sex robot getting hacked to watch you or do things you do not want it to do.

Flox: So one of the first things I thought about was hacking. That would be an incredible plot for a thriller, a person with their sex doll is brutally murdered by a hacker.

It’s also possible that instead of a person having their own sex robot with a closet to put it in and a drawer of cleaning supplies and a 3D printer to replace small parts and a roboticist on call for when it really breaks, people might be able to rent time with them instead.

Ronen: So supposedly you can already buy time with them in some red light districts I’ve heard in Amsterdam and perhaps also in Tokyo.

Rose: Which also helps get around the issue of liability.

Ashby: Say for example you and your wife or you and your partner go to one of these places and something happens and someone gets injured, who then is liable? iIf you say for example bought a sex robot and then that happened, if your girlfriend going to sue you because you bought the sex robot? Or can you sue the owner of the robot brothel for not keeping up on their repair plan? A lot of people would much rather sue the owner than take the liability on themselves

Rose: These are kind of silly logistics questions but I think they’re interesting. But there are some much deeper, harder ethical questions too. Which don’t just apply to sex robots, they apply to robots more generally. How do we feel about owning a thing that looks and acts like a human?

Ronen: It’s unlikely I think, by the time we get to the sex robot commodity if we ever get there, it’s unlikely that they will be just for sex. It’s more likely that they’ll actually be a multipurpose device. They’ll take care of your children, they’ll take care of your elderly, they’ll cook your dinner they’ll drive you around. Well I guess you’ll have a self driving car so who knows maybe you’ll be having sex with your car. But it’s more likely that this will be a fully service device.
Ashby: And that’s the deeper actual ethical question, can you love something that you own?
Flox: We’re going to have to think very very hard about what that says about us and whether we want and accept fantasy to play out that way with a very very human-like object made for our own personal pleasure.

Rose: Those are really hard questions that, I don’t think anybody has the answers to yet. Thankfully, we’re going to have a lot of time to figure them things out.

Ronen: I think sometimes we imagine the technological advances pop out of nowhere and a commodity plops down next to us and is like “Hello! you haven’t seen any element of me before and now I’m here this whole hog thing!” And actually technological progress is much more incremental, much slower. We have these teledildonic devices that are just coming out now that network through the internet and let you have sex at a distance. Most like by the time any kind of sex robot, if it ever comes, by the time it comes to use we’ll be so used to having sex with our computers, I mean we’ll be having sex with our partners over the computer, but we’ll be so used to that that the idea of switching over to something that looks more like a partner is probably not going to be so huge of a transition. I think it’s less likely that there will be a moral panic than if aliens land from outer space and are like “here’s a sex robot!” And we’re like all like “oh my god all of our fears have come true!”
Rose: Then again, on this show, we can never rule out aliens.

          Surf Goddess...or Bionic Woman?        
"I'm going to learn to surf," I told my husband. "All the cool people surf. Cameron Diaz and Eddie Vedder and that other guy..."
"Laird Hamilton?"
"Yeah, him. And Eddie Vedder."
My husband rolled his eyes and went back to working on his thesis. "Sounds like fun," he said.

But I was serious. Land-locked, rural dweller that I am, I aimed to surf in my forty-seventh year.

At heart I'm an ocean girl. Born at the rim of the mighty Pacific, drawn to her shore like a King Salmon finding its way home, I sneak away every year and recharge in the grey mist of the Long Beach Peninsula. Surfing isn't such a stretch, really. No so different from rolling up your pants and wading into the waves.

One thing about the ocean in Washington, though. It's damned cold. And at my age, there's less romance in proving you're tough.

So I decided to learn to surf in Hawaii. I studied up, practiced my yoga, and found a surf school run by women.

And on Fathers' Day, I surfed.

North Shore Oahu. Chun's Reef beach. Perfect sun, rolling breakers, my blue-and-white board under my feet. Here's how I felt:



Luckily, we captured some photos. Here's how I actually looked:


And then things got hairy. A wave or two later, I looked like this:



And wound up slightly worse for wear:

 
Swear to God, a surfer dude offered me a beer before he took this picture. When I told him I don't drink any more, he said, "Dude, that truly sucks. Also, you're gonna need a stitch or two before you go back out." 

Yep. I was IN. A real freakin' surfer.

Funny thing, thirty seconds before I cratered, we'd been sitting on our boards watching the waves, and I'd thought, 'I'm doing this again. Not just again, but a lot. Enough that when someone asks what I do, I'll say I'm a writer and a surfer and trail runner...'

Because getting up on the board and knowing I could do it again felt like this:



And if that means an occasional visit to the ER/dentist/endodontist/periodontist, what the hell? At least I can muster a decent attitude after I'm all stitched up:


And the word is, nine-months-to-a-year from now, I'll have a bionic front tooth. Hopefully it'll be surf-proof.

Cheers...and Happy Writing!

          Eyeborg filmmaker fires up eye-cam to document cutting edge prosthetics (video)        
Eyeborg

In late 2008 filmmaker Rob Spence, caught our attention when he announced his plan to jam a video camera in his skull to replace an eye he lost to an unfortunate accident. Instead of connecting the camera to his brain, Spence sought to become a so-called "lifecaster," recording the feed on an external device. Now his bionic eye is up and running, and he's even partnered with a little company called Square Enix to create a documentary about state-of-the-art prosthetics and cybernetics. The short film, embedded after the break, was commissioned to celebrate the launch of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. But, this isn't just some over-long commercial for a game, it's a serious exploration of cutting-edge leg, arm, and eye replacement technology. Check it out below, but be warned -- there are a few images that might not sit well with weaker stomachs.

          Histories of the Present        
by
Darren Tofts
2003-06-12

Jacob Burckhardt had the benefit of four hundred years of hindsight when he constructed his Enlightenment model of the Renaissance in 1860. Herbert Read and Edmund Wilson found the going tougher when they attempted to define the characteristics of artistic and literary modernism - immersed, as they were, in the very things they were trying to define and which, no doubt, were changing and mutating before the ink had even dried on any sentence of Art Now (1933) or Axel’s Castle (1931). Jürgen Habermas, with a mix of equanimity and assertiveness, conceded that he was dealing with an unfinished project when articulating the vast locutions of modernity. In a similar vein, Jean-François Lyotard modulated his theory of the postmodern as that which is “unpresentable,” in recognition of the dynamic complexity of the conditions he was, initially anyway, attempting to circumscribe in the 1970s.

Culture and Technology and Cyborg: the man-machine are motivated by a similar desire to define and historicize the present. Both books, too, are enmeshed in the same conditions they purport to synthesize into writing. Once committed to writing, any account of the contemporary is of necessity a kind of memory, in memory of the present. Modernity and the postmodern condition have been the elusive quarry of previous critics of the present. Cyberculture is the name that has been used to memorialize the last decades of the 20th century and cyberculture is the ostensible topic of both Culture and Technology and Cyborg: the man-machine. Neither text, though, specifically addresses “cyberculture” per se. Rather, they both seek to register and sharpen into relief those features and characteristics that are usually bundled together under the expedient rubric of cyberculture. For Andrew Murphie and John Potts, technological change is the object of their study and, in particular, the manifold complexity of continuous and discontinuous change. The title of their book is indicative of their focus, in that culture and technology are a common formation, not separate fields that have dramatically come together in the name of cyberculture. The project of Culture and Technology, then, is to trace the trajectories that have informed the present as well as to suggest its dynamic, shifting complexity. More specific in its focus, Cyborg is attentive to scientific and technological modifications of what it means to be human, or at least, what it means to be defined as human. The figure of the cyborg, the metaphoric and physical melding of humans and machines, is for O’Mahony a sign of the current status of our metaphysics. It is also an index of our evolution as a species from an organic, entropic life form to a hybrid, machine-like entity capable of cheating the dissolution of the flesh and modifying human nature.

Although both authors cover a similar terrain, they each approach the task of historicizing the present quite differently. O’Mahony’s approach is illustrative and descriptive, offering a series of snapshots - freeze-frames of the becoming-cyborg. Murphie’s and Potts’s text is more academically involved in its theoretical and critical expositions. But more decisively, their text is reflexive in locating the task of writing in relation to their object of study. In Cyborg, O’Mahony gives us a contemporary landscape of ideas, whereas Murphie and Potts afford themselves the more difficult task of glimpsing turbulence before it resolves into the order of critique. Reassured and distanced in style, O’Mahony’s prose guides us confidently through the permutations of the becoming-cyborg, which certainly makes for informed and informative reading. Murphie’s and Potts’s writing, by contrast, both wrestles and bristles with the self-imposed discipline of auto-critique, of assertion qualified by contingency, of statements that are driven by the timely conviction that, such are the order of things now, but by sentence end, things will be different.

Cyborg is very much a populist, descriptive survey of the contemporary meanings, applications, and understandings of the concept of the cyborg and the more general cultural interface between humans and machines. In Cyborg, informatic technologies are fundamentally positive and progressive, seen to enable and advance human life. The book’s range includes biotechnology, cloning, wearable computing, Artificial Intelligence, bionic implants, telepresence, cosmetic surgery, and body modification. While clearly aimed at a general reader, the book is in no way condescending or simplistic; it will be useful no doubt for students as a kind of primer of the becoming-cyborg, a synopsis. But where it will most help researchers is mainly in the details. In a discussion of hyperreality, for example, O’Mahony exemplifies the concept with Mya, an animated personality commissioned by Motorola to be the face of the company’s voice-activated web presence. The rendering of Mya’s visage was apparently so realistic and lifelike that it evoked disdain for ‘the human’ among site visitors. Mya was simply too real, in appearance too much like an actual woman. The desire for her to look more avatar-like, more hyperreal than real, attests to a possible shift from one regime of the real to another, a new digital faith in appearances crystallized in the preference for high fidelity fakes, copies and fabulations. In another example, O’Mahony notes how advances in surgical procedures, such as a larynx transplant, can have potentially disturbing consequences. Retaining the tone and pitch of the donor, the recipient of such a transplant carries the grain of someone else’s voice. For this reason, O’Mahony advises, “surgeons will check in advance that the recipient does not originate from the same area as the deceased” (22). Though clearly utilitarian and beneficial, such technoscientific processes carry metaphysical consequences to do with markers of identity that are not so easily resolved by technology’s purported benefits.

O’Mahony draws connections and establishes parallels, intimates outcomes, but ultimately leaves the reader to reflect upon the extent and significance of possible conclusions. While such a rhetorical stance suits the introductory, synoptic nature of the text, O’Mahnony falls short of bringing together ideas that clearly warrant synthesis and more critical engagement. For example, O’Mahony deals with many historical instances in which monstrosity hovers as the issue of human and technological convergence (as in her discrete accounts of Frankenstein, medieval bestiaries, Greek mythology, or the use of performance enhancing drugs in sport). While she uses the idea of the cyborg as a common denominator, the sense prevails that the perverse, monstrous, or grotesque body is a more urgent issue in what O’Mahony calls the “Cyborg State,” than the desire to achieve eternal life or improve on the limitations of the body. In other words, the label of cyborg, as a technologically enhanced human, smoothes over and conceals more troubling issues to do with the ways humans have historically conceived of and modified the body.

Within the context of what the book sets out to achieve, the failure to address this issue directly, or at least synthesize the recurrent instances of monstrosity that haunt the text, is a shortcoming. So too is the book’s conclusion, which is disappointing, to say the least. Falling into the all too predictable binary scenario that the Cyborg State will be good or bad, positive or negative, O’Mahony reverts, again, to letting the reader ponder the future of post-humanity:

We are now in a position to decide if and how we want to embrace these technologies. With power comes a collective responsibility both to ourselves and to the environment we live in. Utopia or dystopia, the choice is ours. (106)

The critical shortcomings I have identified in Cyborg register missed opportunities more than any one positive fault with the book. Clearly, the book is not pitched toward an academic audience, and its design and production values - striking, illustrative, appealling - indicate an intent to inform rather than engage readers. Culture and Technology, by contrast, is very much aimed at an academic audience and it lives up to the cover blurb: it is “clear, concise and readable.” The cogency and rigor of Murphie’s and Potts’s writing will ensure that Culture and Technology appeals to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. The breadth of this appeal is an important attribute, reflecting the comprehensive coverage of the cultural, critical, and social theory that has been the staple of humanities and social science research for the last twenty years.

Embracing so many fields, and reviewing them all in the broader context of the cybercultural present, is no mean feat - although such an approach runs the risk of repeating the already known, the all too familiar, the already said. Murphy and Potts, however, manage to avoid restatement in Culture and Technology. Their deft review of key debates resonates with freshness and renewed force. In their capable hands, the speed aesthetics of Paul Virilio, the machinic ecologies of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, and Jean Baudrillard’s precession of simulacra, are not only surveyed, but also actively employed so as to make sense of a complex and rapidly changing world. Murphie and Potts take nothing for granted. Their review is a return to first principles, starting with such fundamental terms as the titular culture and technology, media, cultural materialism, and technological determinism. This retrospective critique of the intellectual field is integral to the book’s ethics of contingency: that to understand the present we need to review - in the sense see again - what will work in any given context of inquiry. Their account of Marshall McLuhan’s work, grounded in general concepts of networks and ecologies, differs markedly from the previous generation of media theory grounded in broadcasting. Similarly, their survey of theorists who have specifically addressed issues to do with culture and technology, from Lewis Mumford to Gregory Bateson and McLuhan himself, establishes a platform upon which to locate more contemporary thinkers, such as Jean Baudrillard and Deleuze and Guattari. This recontextualization provides exactly the kind of intertextual, conceptual continuity required to negotiate the discontinuous and surprising emergence of particular technologies at specific points in time:

Technologies do not, then, of course, arise magically from out of nowhere, but where do they come from? Here we shall suggest - following Deleuze and Guattari and other thinkers - that technologies, like rivers and streams or developments in the arts, also flow. Like rivers and streams, they are produced by particular contexts and change as these contexts change. Like rivers and streams, they flow into each other, accumulate in larger rivers or split into deltas. (34)

Cultural and technological convergence requires critical and theoretical convergence and the above passage is a kind of manifesto in miniature for Culture and Technology. Its supple and interlacing critique makes a decisive incursion into the philosophy of the contemporary. What at first appears to be a review of familiar debates, theorists, and ideas converges into applied analyses of the signature themes associated with cyberculture. But even here, discussions of digital art, virtuality, cyberspace, and the networked society extend previous and ongoing academic discussions to a broader, meta-critical space, in which cybercultural concepts are subjected to the scrutiny of inspection, yet resist being ossified into the doxa of received ideas. A discussion of Stelarc’s performative discourse on the body, for example, does not leave us feeling that we know all there is to know about it, for the simple reason that the contexts of his work keep changing, as too his thinking on his work, as too the contexts of its reception.

Culture and Technology is a sophisticated text in that its introductory chapters develop this contingent way of reading the contemporary out of a very useful and precise survey technocultural ideas. This aspect of the book alone makes for a substantial contribution to a diverse range of intellectual fields, of which cyberculture is but one. Continuing the book’s specific attention to cybercultural matters, its culminating chapters offer substantial analyses of key themes that are also foregrounded in Cyborg; namely, cyborg subjectivity, cognition, computers and cybernetics, war in the digital age, e-commerce, the future of the nation state in a networked world, and the broader, philosophical parameters of living with the virtual. Chapter 7, “Getting Wired: War, Commerce and the Nation State,” is especially noteworthy for its discussion of contemporary events, ranging from the 1991 Gulf War to September 11th, 2001, in the context of the logistics of networking, systems of command, control, and communication, and the increased turbulence associated with a vectoral, global culture. The chapter is a tour de force that demonstrates how to write of complex conditions without dumbing them down or resorting to arcane knowledge. It is one of the most illuminating discussions to date on what is actually and virtually at stake in a networked world, from its styles of war, its conceptions of sovereignty, and its modes of business:

It is informational capitalism that has led to what could be the most dramatically social restructuring over a short period of time that the world has yet seen. It has provided the drive behind the restructuring efforts of states and corporations. This has involved deregulation and the privatization of public resources. It has involved the dismantling of the welfare state and the erosion of various social contracts between labour and capital. It plays cities, states and even continents against each other. Its virtual, informational nodes apportion the actual world into territories of value (or non-value), even from one small section of a city to another. Any attempt at an independent, state-based financial control becomes unworkable. (191)

It is a pleasing irony, or fitting synchronicity, in the light of my earlier remarks, that Murphie and Potts conclude Culture and Technology by returning to Jean-François Lyotard’s Postmodern Condition and his discussion of the petit récit. Lyotard’s “little narrative” is an apt cypher of the impact on society of computer technology, networking, and the like. For Murphie and Potts, the shift from grand narratives to a fragmented nodal culture is, as it was for Lyotard, a shift from a monocultural sphere to a serial conception of society and social acts imagined as contingent narratives: “narratives that function specifically in specific times and specific places” (206). Likewise, we can configure Culture and Technology as a series of petits récits, inserted, temporarily, contingently, into the continuous discontinuity of the present.


          Guest Speaking at the Toronto Tri Club        

** Some people have been asking what I talked about at my Guest Speaking gig at the Toronto Tri Club AGM. Which is a great question, since I still consider myself a relative Triathlon Newbie. So I decided I would share my speech from Sunday Night. It is hard to condense my misadventures into a short somewhat coherent speech, but I tried...**

So that introduction gave you some insight into the past few years, and as you can see it has been an interesting adventure for me. Genetically speaking, I am a bit of a hot mess. So it should come as no surprise that I am not here to regale you with tales of my podium finish at worlds. I am a solid middle of the packer, always have been, and likely always will be. Instead I am here to talk about how sport is truly for everyone. And hopefully remind you to thank your body for another amazing race season, while I am at it.
 
I was diagnosed with my heart condition, long QT syndrome, when I was just 17 years old. After months of seeking the right treatment plan, I was eventually outfitted with my first pacemaker/defibrillator. And shortly after that, I decided to take up running.
But my journey to get to that place actually started well before I even knew I had a heart condition.
 
I was 9, my father had his first heart attack. And the truth about the precarious edge between life and death on which we dwell became ever present in my mind. A long happy life was no longer a guarantee. Health was something earned – and almost never given. And the events that followed left a lasting impression on me.
 
The thing I remember most about my Dad’s cardiac rehab, and that time in my life, is that while there are aspects of your health you cannot control, there are many parts that are decided by the choices you make every day. And that is a lesson that has always stuck with me.
 
So at 19, as I a set out my first of what would become many short little walk/runs around the neighbourhood, I knew that despite being really angry at my body for letting me down,  I was ultimately responsible for creating that healthy balanced life I was striving for.

And I found myself grateful to be given that chance at all. 

Arrhythmias are notoriously difficult to diagnose. They often only strike once -  and once can be deadly.
 
Instead I was given a chance to lead this life and to do it in a healthy way. So I promised myself that if I was given a choice, I would always try to practice that gratitude and put my health first.
 
In 2012, that promise was really put to the test.

Because after my Mom’s battle with breast cancer, I went through genetic screening for the second time, to discover that I was BRCA 1 positive. Making my chance of developing breast cancer somewhere between the range of 60-80%. And while there are options, none of them are really great.
 
You can chose to start screening, and screen every 6 months, hoping that you are the lucky 20-40% who do not get breast cancer. And treat the cancer, if and when it is discovered. Or you can act preventatively, and undergo a double mastectomy.

I ultimately decided that health trumps beauty, and acted preventatively with a double mastectomy.  (and since you are now all looking – yes, these are fake)
 
Surprisingly, this was around the exact same time I started to delve deeper in to racing. I signed up for my first half marathon, and ran it the day before I stepped into the OR.
 
I was struggling with the idea of changing my body, in this drastic way. And running was my way of making peace with my decision. It taught me to love my body for all the amazing things that it could do, rather than for what it looked like.

And just like that. I was hooked.

I started signing up for races regularly. I got myself a bike, and a wetsuit, and I started to dabble in triathlon.
 
For me, racing has become a part of my genetic battle plan, but also a huge part of my life.
 
Since I had my double mastectomy in 2012, I have had 3 more surgeries, primarily it deal with my robot heart. (It is not always so glamorous to be bionic). I also lost my Dad in 2013. But all the while I ran, I raced, and I trained. I completed 33 races – everything from 5km, marathons, to triathlons - and I found my peaceful place.
 
Each time I crossed the finish line felt like a victory, because I was here, I was healthy, and I did it.
There have been moments over the past few years where I have found myself questioning my strength, even questioning my sanity. There were moments where I felt beaten. There were days when burying my head under the covers seemed like the only action I could muster. But I kept training.
 
Even your worst run is better than no run at all. And I made a promise to myself, that even though things were hard, I would keep going. Even your worst day (and I have had a few of those) is a blessing, so I would keep moving forward. And each run was a reminder, that even when life was hard – I was bigger, badder, and strong than whatever it decided to throw at me.
 
Some days I run to decompress after work with my husband. Other days I train to part of a community full of amazing and supportive people like you. Sometimes I suffer on the indoor trainer just so I can have dessert guilt-free. But every time I train, it is simply to remind myself, that I can. And I will be forever grateful for that.

Hope to you see at the races.
Love Your Favourite Darwinian Fail,
Krysten

          Classic TV Talk Show Begins Taping         
Producer-author Herbie J Pilato (Glamour, Gidgets and the Girl Next Door, Twitch Upon A Star, The Bionic Book) has teamed with Joel Eisenberg and Steve Hillard's Mirkwood Partners (The Chronicles of Ara for Ovation TV) to produce a 30-minute talk fest about classic television, titled Herbie J Pilato's Now and Then.

The show’s first taping took place February 17, 2016 with first special guest star Cindy Williams, of the legendary TV series, Laverne & Shirley. Director Steve Akahoshi, along with production company, Unstructured Plans, shot the interview.  Pilato, Founder of the 501(c)3 Classic TV Preservation Society, serves as host of the show – which focuses on a single subject from the world of classic TV in each episode.

Further tapings are scheduled for February 22 and February 29 with the following celebrities (in alphabetical order): Kathy Coleman (Land of the Lost), Lydia Cornell (Too Close For Comfort), Ron Dante (The Archies), Bill Duke (actor/director), Kathy Garver (Family Affair), Kat Kramer (Child of the ‘70s), Stanley Livingston (My Three Sons), Gloria Loring (Days of Our Lives), Radames Pera (Kung Fu), Caryn Richman (The New Gidget/The Bradys), Phil Rosenthal (creator of Everybody Loves Raymond), Karen Sharpe-Kramer (I Dream of Jeannie), Ed Spielman (creator of Kung Fu), Larry Thomas (“The Soup Nazi” from Seinfeld), Larry Wilcox (CHiPs), and more.

Gilbert Adler (producer of features Valkyrieand Superman Returns, and television’s Tales from the Crypt) is an executive producer on the project, along with Lorie Girsh Eisenberg. "I know of no one in this industry more connected in, or passionate about, the world of classic TV than Herbie J Pilato," says Adler. "We want this program to become a historically important document in the world of both art and culture."

Says executive producer Joel Eisenberg: "We’re thrilled to be in business with Herbie J. The interests of Mirkwood Partners is primarily with the artistic journey. While celebrating classic TV, we want to know what a television personality does today as an artist…to understand the reality of the business, and for this program to speak to everyone who aspires to make a living in the arts, as well as classic TV fans, everywhere."

Adds Herbie J: "Our team is comprised of amazing talents and visionaries.  We all cherish the classic TV wheelhouse, and to partner with them on a project that will resonate with so many fans of classic TV…and beyond…is nothing less than an honor.”

Project will be pitched to specialized outlets in March 2016. Herbie J Pilato and Television, Ink. is repped by Diane Nine of Nine Speakers. Joel Eisenberg and Steve Hillard, and Mirkwood Partners, is repped by CAA.

          Two More From Huck        
We have seen 18 images from GDB pal Huck Caton, who took a bunch of nice photos back in April of 1995. Today I'm sharing the final two pictures from this set - all good things must come to an end.

The Mark V-style Monorails were at Disneyland for over 20 years, and yet, to this day, I still twitch involuntarily when I see them. The "Lear jet" inspired design is so tied to Walt Disney World in my mind; I'm sure that there are many people who loved this look, but I never could warm to it. The choice of font for the "Disneyland Monorail System" is adorably dated... I am almost positive that I used the same font for a sign when I was just out of high school. Because I had no aesthetic taste.

Nevertheless, this is still a bright and sunshiny look at Tomorrowland when it still had the original Submarine Voyage, and those awesome Mark VII "Stingray" Autopia vehicles. 


It's fanny packs aplenty over near the Starcade! I feel like I have wasted my life, having never owned or worn a fanny pack. But it's not too late - there's hope for me yet. Check out those very 80's colors in the background - swirling teals and purples. It's funny, I had an art teacher who pointed out the overuse of purple in certain paintings, and to this day I have a bias against it, even though it is a perfectly good hue when used correctly.

Say, what's that white spiky thing in the distance? Why, it's Space Mountain! You don't see it very often on this blog. Did the Speed Ramps still operate in 1995? I remember being able to run up them one time (late at night), and I felt like the Bionic Man. Zooom!


Thanks to Huck Caton for generously sharing his personal photos!

          Steve Miller Band: Fly Like An Eagle (Psymbionic Remix)        
Out of nowhere, Psymbioinc has released yet another nostalgia invoking remix. This time he throws a rather funky glitched out twist on the classic Steve Miller Band song "Fly Like An Eagle." Give it a listen and grab the free download.
          VibeSquaD: Bionic Hijinks Review        
One thing I can definitely say about VibeSquaD’s new EP is that it wastes no time. Aaron Holsteinwants listeners to know, in no uncertain terms, what the aim of Bionic Hijinksis: to get them on their feet. Coming in at a razor-thin 16:39 album length, the EP comes roaring right at listeners like the custom hot rod on its cover.

Fresh off his PostWaveFutureCore EP released a few weeks ago, Psymbionic hits the ground running with a brand new FREE remix just in time for Valentine's Day! The classic 311 love song "Amber" gets a bass heavy treatment, turning it from a reggae-rock ballad into a driving drumstep gone dnb venture.
          First light from Weston on Android        
A couple of months ago, Collabora assigned me first to research and then make a proof of concept port of Wayland on Android. I had never even seen an Android before. Yesterday, Weston on Android achieved first light!
Galaxy Nexus running Weston and simple-shm.
That is a Samsung Galaxy Nexus smart phone, running a self-built image of Android 4.0.1. Weston is driving the screen, where you see the simple-shm Wayland client. There is no desktop nor wallpaper, because right now, simple-shm is the only ported client.

How is that possible? Android has no DRI, no DRM, no KMS (the DRM API), no GBM, no Mesa, and for this device the graphics drivers are proprietary and I do not have access to the closed driver source.

Fortunately, Android's self-invented graphics stack has pretty similar requirements to Weston. All it took was to write a new Android specific backend for Weston, that interfaces to the Android APIs. Writing it took roughly three days.

And the rest of the two months? I spent some time in studying Android's graphics stack, but the majority of the time sunk into porting the minimum required library dependencies, libwayland, Weston, and simple-shm to the Android platform and build environment. Simply getting the Android build system to build stuff properly took a huge effort, and then I got to write workarounds to features missing in Android's C library (Bionic). Features, that we have taken for granted on standard Linux operating systems for years. I also had to completely remove signal handling and timers from libwayland, because signalfd and timerfd interfaces do not exist in Bionic. Those need to be reinvented still.

Android has gralloc and fb hardware abstraction layer (HAL) APIs. Hardware vendors are required to implement these APIs, and provide EGL and GL support libraries. These implementations are usually closed and proprietary. On top of these is the Android wrapper-libEGL, written in C++, open source. My first thought was to use the gralloc and fb HAL APIs directly, but turned out that the wrapper-libEGL does not support using them in the application side. Instead, I was forced to use some Android C++ API (there is no C API for this, as far as I can tell) to get access to the framebuffer in an EGL-compatible way. In the end, I had to write a lot less code than using the HALs directly.

The Android backend for Weston so far only provides basic graphics output to the screen, and offers (presumably) accelerated GLES2 via EGL for the server. No input devices are hooked up yet, so you cannot interact with Weston. I do not know how to get pageflip completion events (if possible?), so that is hacked over.

Simple-shm is the only client that runs for now. There is no support for EGL/GL in Wayland clients. Toytoolkit clients are waiting for Cairo and dependencies to be ported.

The framebuffer can be used by one program at a time. Normally that program is SurfaceFlinger, the Android system compositor. To be able to run Weston, I have to kill SurfaceFlinger and make sure it stays down. Killing SurfaceFlinger also kills the whole Android UI infrastructure. You cannot even power off the phone by pressing or holding down the physical power button!

          Just Ignore Him; He'll Go Away Eventually.        

One of my favorite verbal exchanges in an episode of The West Wing occurs in S03E08, The Women of Qumar. In the story, after President Bartlet said at a fundraiser: Everything has risks. Your car can drive into a lake and your seatbelt jams, but no one's saying don't wear your seat belt, someone had a car accident while not wearing a seatbelt and filed a lawsuit naming the President as a defendant. Sam, the Deputy Communications Director, thinks the White House should respond preemptively before the story. Toby, the Communication Director, instead ignores Sam and then has this wonderfully deadpan exchange with the President:

BARTLET
[Toby,] Come with me for a second, would you?
TOBY
Sir, it's possible you're going to hear some stuff about seatbelts today. I urge you to ignore it.
BARTLET
No problem. [changes topic] Are you straightening things out with the Smithsonian?

I remember when I first watched this episode in late 2001. It expressed to me a cogent and concise fact of press relations: someone may be out there trying to get attention for themselves on a topic related to you with some sophistic argument, but you should sometimes just ignore it.

With that, I say: Dear readers of my blog, you may have heard some stuff about Edward Naughton again this week. I urge you to ignore it.

I hope you'll all walk in the shoes of President Bartlet and respond with a “No problem” and change the topic. If you really want to follow this story, just read what I've said before on it; nothing has changed.

Meanwhile, while Naughton seems to be happy to selectively quote me to support his sophistry, he still hasn't gotten in touch with me to help actually enforce the GPL. It's obvious he doesn't care in the least about the GPL; he just wants to use it inappropriately to attack Android/Linux and Google. There are criticisms that Google and Android/Linux deserve, but none of them relate to the topic of GPL violations.


          Clarification on Android, its (Lack of) Copyleft-ness, and GPL Enforcement        

I'm grateful to Brian Proffitt for clarifying some of these confusions about Android licensing. In particular, I'm glad I'm not the only one who has cleared up the confusions that Edward J. Naughton keeps spreading regarding the GPL.

I noted that Naughton even commented on Proffitt's article; the comment spreads even more confusion about the GPL. In particular, Naughton claims that most BusyBox GPL violations are on unmodified versions of BusyBox. That's just absolutely false, if for no other reason that a binary is a modified version of the source code in the first place, and nearly all BusyBox GPL violations involve a binary-only version distributed without any source (nor an offer therefor).

Mixed in with Naughton's constant confusions about what the GPL and LGPL actually requires, he does have a possible valid point lurking: there are a few components in Android/Linux that are under copyleft licenses, namely Linux (GPL) and Webkit (LGPL). Yet, in all of Naughton's screeching about this issue, I haven't seen any clear GPL or LGPL violation reports — all I see is speculation about what may or may not be a violation without any actual facts presented.

I'm pretty sure that I've spent more time reading and assessing the veracity of GPL violation reports than anyone on the planet. I don't talk about this part of it much: but there are, in fact, a lot of false alarms. I get emails every week from users who are confused about what the GPL and LGPL actually require, and I typically must send them back to collect more details before I can say with any certainty a GPL or LGPL violation has occurred.

Of course, as a software freedom advocate, I'm deeply dismayed that Google, Motorola and others haven't seen fit to share a lot of the Android code in a meaningful way with the community; failure to share software is an affront to what the software freedom movement seeks to accomplish. However, every reliable report that I've seen indicates that there are no GPL nor LGPL violations present. Of course, if someone has evidence to the contrary, they should send it to those of us who do GPL enforcement. Meanwhile, despite Naughton's public claims that there are GPL and LGPL violations occurring, I've received no contact from him. Don't you think if he was really worried about getting a GPL or LGPL violation resolved, he'd contact the guy in the world most known for doing GPL enforcement and see if I could help?

Of course, Naughton hasn't contacted me because he isn't really interested in software freedom. He's interested in getting press for himself, and writing vague reports about Android copyrights and licensing is a way to get lots of press. I put out now a public call to anyone who believes they haven't received source code that they were required to get under GPL or LGPL to get in touch with me and I'll
