Weird dreams

Posted on 22 September 2005 by D' MacKinnon

Jolene and I found some hot new clothes for my new look, I quite like it.
Last night I had some weird dreams. KMFDM was playing a show at a hotel bar for a bunch of drunks. And not a nice hotel, it was some shitty Motel 8 type place in a little shitty redneck town…which oddly enough looked a lot like Evanston, Wyoming. I showed up after they had played and Sacha was trying to sell me some custom modular synth that some electrical engineer had made for him.
I’m not quite sure what that dream was supposed to be about but now I have an urge to listen to some KMFDM.

Commercial work

Awesome….
Last night I heard an instrumental piece I worked on for the CSI tv
series get used in one of their promo commercials. It was totally
unexpected but cool.

Harsh words

Posted on 08 September 2005 by D' MacKinnon

Uh oh!
Steve Ballmer has vowed to kill Google.
From the article:
“At that point, Mr. Ballmer picked up a chair and threw it across the
room hitting a table in his office,” Lucovosky recounted, adding that
Ballmer then launched into a tirade
about Google CEO Eric Schmidt. “I’m going to f***ing bury that guy, I
have done it before, and I will do it again. I’m going to f***ing kill
Google.”

FEMA news

Posted on 06 September 2005 by D' MacKinnon

FEMA news.
FEMA is totally fucking up, their leadership is inept. Perhaps someone should stop appointing his buddies to posts (who then appoint their buddies).
The first one here is from their own site:

FEMA tells first responders not to respond first.

FEMA turns down Amtrak’s offer of help

FEMA turns away experienced firefighters.

FEMA turns away Wal-Mart supply trucks.

FEMA stops Coast Guard from delivering diesel fuel.

FEMA won’t let Red Cross deliver food.


FEMA won’t let morticians enter New Orleans.

FEMA blocks 500-boat citizen floatila from delivering aid.

FEMA doesn’t utilize 600-bed hospital ship provided by Navy.

FEMA turns down Chicago’s massive offer of aid.

FEMA stops delivery of generators.

Some more here.
How else can this be viewed other than a monumental failure?

Regarding Donations

Posted on 02 September 2005 by D' MacKinnon

For those wanting to help/donate the people of New Orleans, please read this:
https://www.redcross.org/article/0,1072,0_312_4498,00.html
I have no doubt that there are people out there trying to profit off of other people’s charity. I suggest everyone give directly to the organization they are trying to donate to instead of going through intermediaries.
