Various bits of flotsam that washed up on our computers, before we moved to a better blog system in November 2004. Now a repository for YouTube videos and testing new tools. Go to for more recent content.

White wine

Is there a deeper meaning that I'm missing? I think white wine sucks.

emusic suggestion

Nothing potentially says "howzabout it?" quite like classical music. Yet most seduction-oriented classical compilations are either too prim or based on some ridiculous premise that places impossible demands on orgone-stingy composers. (Given current marketing trends, Sixty-nine to Schubert might appear any day now.) Classical boudoir bait's effectiveness hinges not on the gentleness so often embodied by the aforementioned comps, but on rich melodies and lush harmonies — whether played by a solo pianist or a full orchestra. While "gentle" certainly has a place in any worthy classical seduction strategy, a little "volcanic" never hurts, either. Meticulously field-tested for maximum return, the entries in this, one of the dirtiest Dozens, usually focus on specific works or movements simply as a matter of convenience; they hardly scratch the surface of eMusic's voluminously voluptuous holdings. Explore, experiment and most importantly, listen. As Jean Baudrillard once wisely observed, you can't seduce anyone until you've first seduced yourself.

From eMusic 'bootycall classical"


Like previously noted, am seriously not impressed with this software, which obviously sucked up many hundred engineer hours at one of the largest software companies at the world, am not impressed with the overall clunkyness of the simplest tasks.  I'm sure there will be all sorts of typos in this entry, and I jsut don't give a fuck. Why should there be a long lag between my fingers dancing on the keyboards like Cortez across the water and my clunky prose on the screen? Reminds me of Word 6.0 on a Quadra. Blech.


Perhaps blogging is not its primary function, and was just tacked on at the end of the product testing cycle, before the merger? Now, it is slightly better than typing directly into the google/blogger window, but not by much.

To be brutally honest, the freeware Flock workds better than this software whcih shall remain nameless.


Strange also, I have my blog set to email me all new entries, and te first email from a test post says

Subject: [B12 Partners Solipsism] ##TITLE##


Thanks, eh.

Cool huh?

blog tool test

Trying out new blog software - still not very impressed, even though there is a large company behind this test. Ecto is so much more agile. Perhaps there is some obvious error I am making, perhaps this beta still needs more work.

For instance, even though I am typing on the fasted Mac I've ever owned, there are several moments between my fingers clicking the keypad and my words appearing on the screen.


I also have this message:

"[redacted] has disabled your connection to this website because an unknown error occured. For more information contact this website's administrator"

Of course, I am this admin, and I have no earthly idea whassup.

Test Flock

Flock is a free web browser that makes it easier than ever to share photos, stay up-to-date with news from your favorite sites, and search the Web.

Interesting, but obviously still beta.
