mohammed said that, in italics, he did. he didn't use
italics, but he's italician, so it's like he actually did.

in the sunny side if France, they don't wear pants

that Egyptian-in-a-disneyland kinda melodic feel is one of
the modal scales, I believe

I honestly have trouble thinking in scales, it's about
patterns and proportions to my brane

the ending to 1985_brain was intense. also, been watching
more videos on our channel, do you still have a mixer? when
are you hooking everything up again??

i was drinking black cherry soda from trader joe's and i
decided to try and rip off cherry twist by crystal method.
it would be another year or two before i even tried alcohol,
let alone anything else. i fully expected to hate this,
playing it back again, but it's actually quite alright. you
can hear some of my earliest use of the prophet VS in this,
which i'd bought off ebay with summer job money

in 2003, i auctioned off a song commission, i will do
whatever the heck you want if you win the bid. the man that
won ($15) requested i do a song for his girlfriend's
birthday, and it had to involve dogs

i had been hoping for more money, but i had fun making it,
and he absolutely loved it.

jugular, rather popular with my classmates in high
school. it featured quotes from many of them, re-recorded as
voiceover, and some of their voices, by me with a pestering
minidisc walking around the halls. ~farewell, kind sir~

cover of "down in it" by NiN with vocals done using
AT&T deaf relay operator service for all vocals, and some
very deliberate half-ass Prophet VS mashing. i bought that
keyboard as my first proper synth purchase because trent
reznor was always on about it, so i figured i was good to
cover a NiN song

was quite an effort doing that. i enlisted my high school
partner in crime to engage the deaf relay service interface
and type up the lyrics two or three times, as i eagerly
recorded it all

deaf relay service is a service in the US for deaf people.
you log on to the web site and the operator will say
whatever you type. we'd already used it on the school
payphone a bajillion times and covering a song seemed proper
next level

(go ahead)

cacti reminded me of guy that sang (talked over some techno
tracks) about about vampires in new york and a gay boy who
made a virus to kill off the human race. he was quite a big
act I remember but cant remember the names. found this while
searching for it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXdupPQ3UmI

the captain planet remix is quite acidy I remember making
stuff in fl years years ago. also this shitty program called
"dance machine". that was more than 25 years ago

hahaha how did you came up with the idea to auction a song
commission?

selling CDs to my classmates for $5 a CD, whatever they
wanted me to pirate on it. good profit. other classmates had
CD burners and/or cable modems, but torrents didn't exist;
you had to IRC XDCC or audiogalaxy or whatever, so business
was brisk. you want 3D Studio Max? sure, tomorrow

C64, obviously. dad got us a C64 as a "kid's computer." i
actually have a very crusty old memory of going to the store
with him to buy it, a long-defunct chain called "the bit
bucket." i played a game or two on the C64, but i also
remember using it as a baseball bat as my sister hurled a
whiffle ball at me in the basement. i was, like, six. by 9,
though, i had a PC, and i was into it. i love the the c64
aesthetic but i was really never a part of it; just joining
in a decade or two later

the older i got, the more i felt i could make money legally,
a decent amount of it, and live in more peace than i ever
could as a criminal. in my deepest moments, i've
contemplated ransomware, all that -- in the end, i decided:
i loved that easy cash in high school. if i get a 10x taste
of that with holding people's data hostage, i won't ever be
able to appreciate a real job. i'll get hooked on the easy
cash, i'll get stupid, and then i'll get caught, and then
i'll get caught. so, yes, it was glorious surfing the early
cash waves of the internet -- before the first dot com boom,
you could make ten email addresses and get $10, a free polar
fleece just for that. now, people shut down hospital
networks and ask for $100k. i'd be good at that for a little
while, then i'd promptly shoot myself in the foot

i do enjoy the angles, though. money is a tangible result to
all the abstract puzzling

there is also just... i dunno, the satisfaction of
subverting a system. classic hacker mindset. listing out all
the ways you could rip off the mini-market at work, without
actually really caring to do so. just, you know, fuck you,
fuck your stupid insecure mini-market. there's a camera
filming me as i pay for shit but no actual camera on the
stock? jesus christ

bills to facebook and google both companies paid. he is in
jail now.


exactly the sort of scam that worked before the internet.
guys would just draw up official-looking invoices, send them
to proctor-gamble or whatever. most times, these invoices
would be rightly ignored. every now and then, though, since
it was such a huge company, someone would just pay it
without checking to make sure it was legit. guys made
thousands this way. many eventually went to jail

irony is, my dad threw out the C64 one day and i was rather
upset, because it was a year or three past the point when i
began to properly care about computers. i did, however,
managed to salvage an apple IIe with an exceedingly rare,
dope, accelerator card, and hung onto that for a good many
years. here is a buddy and i writing BASIC graphic displays
on it on acid

it was a rather nice moment. i remember thinking: wow, this
is what the 80s must have been like... no internet, some
computer about as fast as a graphics computer, but still
fighting over the keyboard out of excitement

black cherry- would make good contra iii music
cacti- weird surreal horror cacti paranoia. I like the
comedy+horror genre (army of darkness and mellowgold)
happy birthday- maybe this is what son of sam heard in his
head, be careful. Yeah ebay was fun/free before monopolized
by organized crime.
jugular-hmm
down in it-heh, call shitty customer service lines and have
them unknowingly provide lyrics for you. the government just
pretends to help deaf etc to virtue signal when really they
steal everyone's income and force a restaurant with only 4
parking spaces to have like half of them be handicap
parking, using law to sabotage their cartel competition

It's practially ethical to scam money out of big corporate
actors, their secretary probably paid it, they stole all the
land and their whole system is fraudulent fascism. 'the
satisfaction of subverting a system'- there's no economic
niches anymore. It's all mopped up, work at walmart or get
lucky in the no longer new gold rush of narcissistic self
cringe whoring on youtube. I'm reading a book on gemstones,
they make it illegal (weaponized law) for the masses to mine
any gems, they have to do it by stealth and are sometimes
killed for trying. Others control slaves who dig the
diamonds etc for them. A bunch of war to obtain stupid
sparkly things rich jerks wear on their stupid crowns. All
disney movies are about these royalty, all rpgs, only the
royalty matter in the popular culture that was created by
the royalty.

yeah the thing about making money legally its that its
probably through some scam scheme that was made legal.
either you make up that scam yourself or you work for
someone who made it up, so even if it is legal its still
unethical. the world is a mad place. if something is legal
and ethical it probably has a very low profit margin. just
typing my frustrations into this box.

my trade is programming, and when i was last looking for a
job, i more or less told recruiters, "please, god, don't
send me anything where the business model is 'let's make a
stupid app and sell ads'"

what i really wanted was a company that "created value." not
some bullshit ad-supported app, not some "disruptive"
parasitic business model like uber... and, yeah, wouldn't
you know it, such companies do exist. the one i work for was
essentially founded because a guy said, "this shit fucking
sucks, this is painful and retarded, i can't take it, i'm
just going to write some software to do it for me." he had
no intention to start a company. but then people started
asking for a copy

most companies start with a solution and try to find a
problem to solve. "it's a new machine learning algorithm!"
"what does it improve?" "i dunno, we're still trying to
figure that out, but we've raised $10mil in funding"
