Public Radio

Larry Mantle speaks with Dr. Robert Lawrence Kuhn, author of the article Why This Universe: Toward a Taxonomy of Possible Explanations from the most recent issue of Skeptic magazine, about the many possible explanations for the existence of our universe.

The interview is on an episode of AirTalk today (7/31) and was very good. Unfortunately, the site seems to only have it in Real Audio format.

The article is at Skeptic Magazine in a PDF file. There are 85 endnotes on this thing, so you know it has to be good.

As for the magazine itself, I find it sensationalist and just itching to pick a fight. The article is worth reading though.

little electric motors

Joe Jones plays musical instruments with motors and discusses his music machines.

Listen to his music and watch his contribution (#18 on the page) to fluxfilm, 37 short Fluxus films.


The Little Me Action Figure

A fine idea

Using Picasa's public photo galleries, an enterprising Australian couple (Peter and Judith) has set up a sort of shopping site that shows off their wares. PJs Wood-Works Nostalgic Tin Signs has a lot of great old signs (as shown) and the "main store" has many more categories.

The Complete Commodore Inner Space Anthology is pretty much everything you would need to know about your Vic-20, C-64 or other vintage Commodore computer.

il gabbiano ladro

Brian Kane points to a video of a seagull with a penchant for Doritos. As a bird owner, I enjoy seeing stuff like this. They can be damn clever at times.

I think I got the Italian correct in the headline, since this Italian photo site has a great picture of a seagull with what looks like a piece of bread in it's beak with the same phrase.

This is getting so easy now

I was going to post some really trippy videos of Tangerine Dream performing "Ricochet" live. This was when electronic music needed banks of equipment (and, apparently, 100's of candles.) Then I was going to post a link to "Love on a Real Train" from the Risky Business soundtrack as a way of saying "You've heard these guys before."

I was going to do those things, but it was done a couple of months ago at postpolitical. Check out the Late Friday Night Tangerine Dream Post.

(most everything else on that site is pure crap, but he did beat me to the TD post, so I am linking it instead of stealing it. The guys who run it look young enough to go fight for our freedom. I wonder why they aren't. They are probably part of "Generation Chickenhawk". Fuckers.)

Recently it seems like everyone is jerking me around

American Slang - Randomly Chosen

Please help me find one of these

The documents on the board are in Russian and the guy who posted is Russian. I am hoping this clock is real and available here. Any clues to where to find it would be appreciated. I have already checked out the novelty clocks section at ebay.

(Found at random pictures.)

I sure hope that's not a Decepticon

(Found via the architecture porn group at flickr. The original pic of this there did not give permission for use here, so I took the pic from de.wikipedia.com.)

These will likely sell out

Josten's creating Championship rings for Madden 08

EA is touting the Jostens deal as a perfectly logical extension of the Madden brand into the real world. For players, though, it won't be a cheap extension. The base model of the rings, made out of nonprecious metal and decorated with cubic zirconia and "simulated stones" will go for $149. Rings can also be made from 10K white or yellow gold for $495 each, while wealthy Madden addicts can pay an as-yet-undisclosed premium to have real diamonds incorporated into their game bling.

This comment from ColdfireTrilogy sums it up:

"I can see this,
A. "Hey man whats that sweet ring on your finger, it looks like one of them super bowl rings on TV"
B. "Ya dude isn't it awesome! (wife looks at husband in a disgusted manner) I just got this custom 450$ because I beat the game 35 times and my team went undefeated for 470games straight!"
A. (*awkward silence)
B. "Look at all this custom stuff I have on it, (*points to custom designs), .....(trails off as friend loses interest)"
A. (*speaking to mans wife) "Hey wanna go get jiggly tomorrow night your husband is a loser!""



A brilliant set of sites from the writer of Spirit of '76, Roman Coppola. Color featured prominently in the plot of that film as well.

Lifting Radio Silence

(Found at fark on a thread concerning the security surrounding the new HP book.)

I have had back surgeries and this site helps to distract me from the pain. When I am finding cool sites and ranting, I feel better.

Would acupuncture help with the symptoms of sciatica or would any other complementary medical solutions be worth considering?

I have found it helpful to do the stretching exercises my physical therapist recommends. Do some core strengthening exercises, such as the ones highlighted at The Mayo Clinic. By keeping your core strong, your back won't put itself in a position to cause that sciatica pain you are having.

This book, Back Pain: What You Need to Know (Johns Hopkins), is very good and inexpensive; regardless of what the review on amazon says.

Good luck and try to stay off the pills (unless you really, really need them!)
