Three MCs and one DJ…

Rob @ 9:24 PM

I make mixes.

You like mixes.

You especially like my first mashup album.

I have no idea how long I'll be able to keep the files up, so grab while the grabbing's good!

Stolen from everyone's livejournals...

LJ Interests meme results

  1. captain murphy:
    The original gangsta. Most of Sealab 2021 just would not have been the same without him.
    Goodnight Harry Goz, wherever you are!
  2. emmitt nervend:
    This cute little guy was hidden Where's-Waldo-style in the backgrounds of the amazingly cool and underrated cartoon Freakazoid. He never said or did anything, other than stare and grin maniacally at the camera like so:

    The number of times Emmitt could be found in the episode was hidden in the credits.
  3. hacking:
    This is not just about the Hollywood-style messing about with other people's computers. It's a way of looking at the world, wanting to find out how and why things work, how you can make them work better, and being willing to take the best route to something regardless of whether it's the standard or accepted route.
    Unfortunately, certain interests wish to maintain a negative image of hackers and hacking, leading to the constant portrayals of hackers as mischief-makers at best, hardened criminals at worst.
    The analogy I like to use for the general public is an auto designer or mechanic. With all that person's knowledge, he/she could be out there stealing cars, chopping them up in a chop shop, and making a huge living as a criminal, or he/she could be using what they know to make an honest living, and possibly improve cars past what they were designed for.
    A hacker is not a criminal. The guy in a movie or a played-to-heavy news broadcast who is stealing credit info or destroying systems is a criminal, regardless of whether or not hacking skills come into play.
  4. labyrinth:
    Humans + Muppets + David Bowie. No further explanation is necessary.
    "Pants, pants, magic pants..."
  5. ninja pirates:
    I refuse to believe ninja and pirates are always arch enemies. Some crossbreeding has to happen. When it does, we get the best of both worlds.
  6. psychology:
    I've been on the right and wrong ends of this from an early age, and really had no chice other than to learn what I could about it.
    These days it's an actual interest of mine, and is useful on many levels, including:
  7. social engineering:
    Social engineering is basically using hacking skills in psychological situations rather than technological ones, locating exploitable elements in the human equation rather than the technological one. Like hacking skills, it's a moral judgement call on whether this is used for good or evil.
    Positive examples of social engineers include actors, comedians and humorists, detectives, harmless pranksters, anthropologists, the benevolent types of psychologists, therapists, clergy, activists, and rare non-evil lawyers, and security experts looking for holes to patch against non-benevolent social engineers.
  8. the tick:
    He is the Wild Blue Yonder!
    Possibly one of the best comics ever made. The cartoon was okay, but my definitive Tick adaptation will always be Patrick Warburton's live-action portrayal.
  9. wbai:
    WBAI is one of the best listener-sponsored radio stations ever slapped together out of spit and baling wire.
    It's also the home of Off The Hook, a hacker-themed radio show involving some cool people I know.
  10. ♦:
    What can I say, I like unsupported extended character sets.

Avast ye!

Rob @ 5:02 AM

Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

September 17, 2005

Terribly sorry…

Rob @ 4:51 PM

This should never have happened. I wholeheartedly apologize.

September 16, 2005

Bad Trekkie. No phaser.

Rob @ 8:46 AM

Their hearts are in the right place I'm sure, but this may well and truly be the worst splash screen ever.
