New Bravo show is a Fierce Tranny Hot Mess

03.14.2008 @ 8:39 AM in Culture
Ever since Project Runway, I've had the impressions of Christian Siriano stuck in my head. Now, everything is fierce and everyone is a hot mess. Course, Angel makes it all stick since he talks mostly that way too. Gotta love SNL though. Oh yea, Hulu is now open to the public, so check it out to see some of your favorite shows and clips online for free. [update] Thanks to nfotxn, i found this fierce t-shirt that can be yours for the fierce fierce price of $20. Make it work! prod_fierce.jpg

AFA Wants to Stop the Silence

03.13.2008 @ 1:37 PM in Lifestream
aalert_ban.gif The Day of Silence is a day when Students in schools across the United States opt to remain silent during class, to symbolize the "silence faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies." Instead they hand out a small card to people that explains that their "deliberate silence echoes that silence, which is caused by harassment, prejudice, and discrimination... that ending the silence is the first step toward fighting these injustices." The DOS is on the April 25th, and has been going on since 1996. However, this year, there is a heightened interest and involvement as a result of the murder of Lawrence King. The AFA doesn't want the DOS to happen, releasing an "action alert" explaining their stance on it and are urging parents to keep their kids home to persuade schools to cancel the voluntary events held on April 25th. Here's the PSA, [audio:] and their FAQ on the event
Read this doc on Scribd: AFA Day of Silence Action FAQ What's Wrong with the Day of Silence? Frequently Asked Questions about the 'Day of Silence' and our protest.... Q. Why should parents be concerned about the so-called Day of Silence? A. This event was started a decade ago by an adult homosexual advocacy group, the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), with the goal of promoting homosexuality to all students in a given school. It has grown enormously, unfortunately, as the support for the 'gay' agenda has been embraced by thousands of schools and impressionable students nationwide. The Day of Silence postures every person who ide

Twitter, In Plain English.

I have two types of friends: those that twitter, and those that don't. The ones that don't are aware of my mini blog, the right hand stream of thoughts and dirty replies that runs down my sidebar. However, very few get the concept and when I try to explain it to them; it oft comes out as too technical and geeky. They can't see the worth and the value I get from knowing what my friends are doing across the web. Perhaps this could help. CommonCraft, the Plain English folk, made a video explaining what twitter is, how to use it, and why we love it. check it out.

Monday Tuneday: MSTRKRFT

03.10.2008 @ 1:32 PM in Culture
Since I wasn't feeling to particularily sneaky to try and record MSTRKRFT when they showed up at the Tralf in Buffalo this Sunday, I bring you a clip of their previous show on the 7th @ StudioB in NYC... MSTRKRFT in person is more amazing on stage than you could possibly imagine. If it wasn't for the annoying opening acts like Mark Webb and Bev Beverly, I could have stayed till the end. However the pulsing highs from the synths of the opening acts put too much fatigue on my club ravaged ears, and I had to leave. Real bummer, I felt a bit like "clockwork orange" being pained to hear music from a group I love so much. However next chance I get I'll be at another MSTRKRFT concert, with earplugs.

Into the Mind of an Autistic Web Junky

03.07.2008 @ 4:00 PM in Technology
Of of the participants in my lab is a non-verbal guy who happens to be autistic. On the outside, he tends to grunt, get in your face and doesn't like people in his way. On the inside, this guy is chock full of intelligence; he loves technology, and can operate a PC better than most staff. No one really taught him either. When he comes to the computer lab, his favorite (ok, only activity) is getting online. He'll come in, grunt hello, point to a few interesting things in my lab (I leave computer parts laying on a table for him to look at, he loves it) and goes right to his station. In his hand is a small stack of papers, and on them are the contents of his interests. LabDrawing_small.jpg

The graphic above is a inverse scan of the paper he showed me today. I've been meaning to scan one in and really inspect it, the information contained is an amazing look into an otherwise forbidden mind. Obviously the first thing is an exxagerated drawing of a muscled man. My guy (can't say his name for confidentiality and stuff) LOVES body building and everything associated with it. I often see him walking down the hallways pointing to his arm muscles and if he sees a buff man he will stop him and squeeze his biceps and then point to his. He's always on muscle sites, looking at pictures and the products associated, like steroids. For fear of him glamorizing steroids, we tend to communicate a negative connotation about steroids, and he now draws them in the garbage, or sometimes, the word crossed out. From the "muesum" drawn on the upper left, I deduced that he also enjoys the greek sculpture, which also celebrate the male figure. Not everything is men and muscles, he is an avid lover of tech as well. you can see the circuitry and "wifi" in the drawing. Easter seems to be on his mind too, with a smiling easter egg posted at the top. Notice his use of a heart to depict the muscleman's face. i've yet to figure that one out. I plan on saving a few more of his drawings.. they really intrigue all of us here. Its like a puzzle.

Santogold – L.E.S. Artistes

03.07.2008 @ 12:12 PM in Culture
I recently started listening to Santogold when I heard of them from the RCRD LBL blog. L.E.S. Artistes was a favorite track and now I have a video to go with it. Directed by Nima Nourizadeh. I really dig the violence, its so artistic and even at some points intentionally faux-realistic. You just gotta watch.
  • This is better than good; this is gold— SANTOGOLD! Santogold is a survivor of a half-century worth of living along musical evolution’s most cutting edges. The only live act that can boast of having out-aged Barbara Bush, having outlived Mr. Miyagi and out-styled Liberace, Santogold is here with future flavor.Already receiving weighty club rotation and airplay in urban Afghanistan and downtown Beirut, Santogold is the first act of the century to boast a post-war following on the International Space Station Mir. Following a live performance broadcast from three thousand miles off the Cape of Good Hope last June, inmates at Leavenworth Penitentiary received Santogold with a celebratory confetti parade. Just another first for the modern super group that knows no bound.Composed of absolutely no members, Santogold is also the first musical outfit capable of claiming the planet’s broiling collective consciousness as their front woman. Longtime collaborator, singer and songwriter Santi White says of her work with Santogold, “We began trying to write pop songs to sell, which made us depressed, so we started writing songs for ourselves instead.” The results of that self-centered conceit is the songwriting work heard for the first time on the full length Santogold album, as yet untitled, to be released in 2007 on the Lizard King label. As unmastered tracks leaked over the internet this past November, the request lines of radio stations from Miami to Hanoi began freezing with a flood of calls from listeners eager to hear the new Santogold sound over their frequencies. From his radio show in the United Arab Emirates capital city of Abu Dhabi, Michael Jackson (the King of Pop) played what Santogold snippets he had been able to pirate from a bootleg MySpace page dedicated to the group. Days later, BBC Radio One reported that the unreleased Santogold debut was heard blasting from the iPod shuffle of Libyan ruler Moammar Qaddafi as he entered an international summit in the Nigerian capital of Abuja. Recognizing the urgent need to address the uproarious buzz, Santogold released the following statement through their label reps at Lizard King: “The response to our unmastered songs has been both premature and phenomenal! We were happy to hear that the children of Darfur have found hope in our melodic interpretation of life on the battlefield of love! We’re hoping that each and every 20-something from downtown San Francisco to central Mumbai will also learn something from our work! And to the people dropping no-knock fire on old ladies in Atlanta: shame on you! Santogold ain’t with that shit!” The trajectory of such early successes leading to newfound political clout is nothing new for Santogold, whose debut album, though half a century in the making, is sure to rock glass pipes from the Lincoln Memorial to Buckingham palace. The flavor of the gold is guaranteed: Santogold! - Via Myspace

WANT: KidRobot releases Adult Swim Minis in April.

03.06.2008 @ 10:56 AM in Lifestream


[Assy McGee, Lil' Squidbillie, Robot Chicken, and Grandma Squidbillie]

This is it. Convergence. The love of the toy merged with the love of late night absurdity... KidRobot plans to release a 20 toy blind box series this April featuring an allstar Adult Swim cast. The figures appear to be about 3 inches tall, and will retail at select retail stores for $7.95 Here's the lineup: Definitely I shall definitely be getting up on this series like a fat kid on a Snicker Bar. I'm not a fan of all the shows to be featured, but I plan on getting the ATHF, Robot Chicken, and Squidbillies. I really really hope the two mysteries are Master Shake and Meatwad from teh Aquateen Series...


  • Via Vinyl Pulse because KidRobot is keeping quiet. Apparently, during SDCC 2007, Kidrobot sent out a press release that they had secured the license to drop the minis this February. That never happened. No one really know why but if Vinyl Pulse is on the money (they nearly always are) then we will see these in early to mid April. Hopefully I'll hear more soon and I'll see what I can do about poking Hero Design to carry a box or three.

Planet Unicorn: Tom Cruise Returns with Episode 6

When Channel 101 cancelled Planet Unicorn a few months back, my world was crushed. How was I supposed to go on without knowing what happened to Tom cruise and his pastel colored unicorn friends? Fortune has prevailed and blessed us with one more episode, despite the belated Christmas theme.
