That's right, I'm sick of seeing shitty post about claw grips and other stupid shit. So I'm calling on cool people (especially you CLains) to post something stimulating.

To get the ball rolling I've recently begun to read White Noise by Don Delillo, a fucking awesome book. I'm in need of something to read afterward, any recommendations?

Tree of Life (15 comments)
Posted by mkeiy @ 12:35 CDT, 8 October 2011 - iMsg
So I finally got around to watching Tree of Life tonight. Well, I should say that I attempted to watch it. I had known of this film for a while now, given that it won the Palme d'Or r this year. I had also read that it contained some rather striking visual effects and cinematography.

One thing that I didn't know was that it didn't contain any narrative. Wow, I don't mind watching films that are essentially film clips of intrguing visuals (like: Koyaanisqatsi). Yet when a film is attempting to tell a story, it might benefit when the characters have more than a few words to say to one another.

I bring this up here because I know there are some readers who are interested in film and I would like to know what other thought of it. For the record I couldn't bring myself to watch it past the 45 minute mark and instead chose to skip through the rest, primarily interested in seeing more abstract imagery.

I have had a quick browse of the IMDB forums and as I expected their is no reasonable discussion just fan boys and trolls competing for attention. A great deal of the argument there revolves around peoples difference of opinions regarding the message of the film. Half thinking it presents some deep, profound message of God's will and it's intrinsic link with the natural order of the universe - the other thinking otherwise.

Frankly, in my opinion, I saw the connection and I appreciated the imagery but that doesn't excuse their being less spoken words than there are minutes in the running time (120 for the record). It's a shame because I was expecting something wonderful and all I got was something disappointing.

Online tee shirt printing (7 comments)
Posted by mkeiy @ 06:02 CDT, 8 June 2011 - iMsg
Hi,

So a while ago my mate linked me to a website that would print whatever you liked onto a tee shirt and mail it to you. You had a fair degree of choice over how the image was to be presented (confined to a space or plasted over the whole thing, sleeves and all).

Alas, I didn't keep the link and neither did he, so here I am, wondering if anyone here might know what I am talking about.

Pro-hint, when I first visited this website they were using as an example a tee with the cover from King Crimsons first album.

Weird things that freak you out (142 comments)
Posted by mkeiy @ 21:58 CDT, 3 June 2011 - iMsg
I was thinking about things that get under my skin the other day and wondered what other peoples experiences were like?

Something that I grew out of was an anxiety over closed shower curtains - no shit. I use to be quite hesitant when it came to opening a closed shower curtain. When I was younger I would always imagine there would be a skinned body behind there, or worse yet the predator who perpetrated the skinning!

However, something which has stuck with me to this day and a 'phobia' you might say, in the purest sense, that it makes me bodily ill is a fear of heights. I positively hate seeing people sitting on ledges on a balcony for instance and a whole host of other situations. Flying however I am fine with.

What about you?

So just wondering what everyone thinks about this season past and what the future will hold?

Things on my mind atm:

1. Shame about Ancelotti, I'm nothing close to a blues fan but I don't think he deserved the sack - would be great to see Hiddink back in the premier league.

2. Cannot wait to see both Porto and Dortmund in the Champions League next season. I really hope Villa-Boas stays with Porto also!

3. Will Real manage to beat Barcelona to the top of la liga? If not then I can't imagine Mourinho staying much longer.

4. Will Arsenal manage not to choke? I am a Gunners supporter.

Looking for an anime film (15 comments)

I saw it when I was very young, so this is robotech territory, late eighties early nineties. It was post-apocalyptic IIRC, and it was largely set underwater, involving submarines.

From what I can remember it started off with a pretty pitched battle at a dock of some sort where the main characters are desperately trying to escape from. Which they eventually do aboard an aforementioned submarine.

The plot resolves around them trying to locate this underwater city, or something similar. They are pursued constantly by whomever it was who attacked them at the dock originally.

Any ideas as to what it might be?

I won't go out on a limb and assume some of the detractors changed their opinions after seeing it, but god damn, that was one brilliant movie.

Was it as engaging as 2001? Of course not. Did it show you something you hadn't seen before? That's the real question.

The critics have been correct to state that the film is populated by cliche's, some more apparent than others. That's a fair observation and I wholeheartedly agree with it. But which of the cliche's people have been picking out of Avatar, not been seen in hundreds of other films, spanning numerous genres?

Yes it was very obvious, I believe, I pick up on the message Cameron was attempting to communicate. When hasn't it been? Terminator didn't use fancy dialogue to warn us of our dependence on technology, and the possible consequences of such a dependence. It showed us an impressive figure of a man dressed all in black dealing out death for many and later protection for a few. Aliens attempted to inform us of our own inhumanity towards others and the simple, brute fact, that the universe and whatever life might reside there, may in fact, want to annihilate us.

Avatar tried to go deeper than both of these films, it wanted to touch everyone, somehow, and it might not succeed in this mission. I won't attempt here to note down everything that I saw in this film, nor will I mention all the films that it borrowed from. These are things we will all disagree on but nonetheless remain confident of.

Coming back to the second question I asked at the beginning, did Avatar show us something we hadn't seen before? It certainly showed us a lot of things we have seen before. I mean, the final battle from Aliens was quite obviously the genesis of what would become the final confrontation between the old marine and Jack, even if Cameron didn't know it at the time.

However, I hadn't ever seen anything the way I saw Avatar. Granted I saw it at an Imax screen, which definitely added to the level of immersion, but the moment I saw those two droplets of water in front of Jack's eyes, I was in.

Feel free to ramble all you need, and trust me, I don't need to be called a fanboy, I'm well aware that I am!

Do yourself the favour of seeing it in the Cinema. I'm all for pirating, but you wouldn't miss out on the chance to see your favorite band play live, so don't miss out on the chance to see something so perfectly befitting of the term cinematic.

So aside from the obvious one for many people: pickles. What food do you love to eat when you're baked or drunk or just experimenting with whats left in the fridge the day before your welfare check clears.

(on a side note, I occasionally drink a mouthful of the brine that gherkins come in, nothing like that vinegar hit!)

But my all time top 3 gross out meals are so far
1) Strawberry Jam and Mayonnaise on toast
2) Baked beans + Grated cheese + Chilli + Bacon
3) Milo and Honey on toast

So please add your disgusting recipes. Eating cookie dough doesn't count, that's just stupid, and fucking awesome.

Well, sort of. This is a link to a house set I have recently finished.

I have put another one up on esr, here
I'm not 100% if it is still up, but I think it is.

The tracklist for my latest set is this
1. Trentemoller - Style
2. Agoria - Diva Drive (Extended Remix)
3. John Dahlback - World of Love (Pig & Dan Remix)
4. James Harcourt - Call & Response
5. Richard Dinsdale - Get Off The Streets
6. James Harcourt - Moob (Quivvers Moob Deep Remix)
7. The Cobra - Maurice (Harnessnoise Beneath The Surface Remix)
8. Unkle - Hold My Hand (Dubfire Remix)
9. Mark Knight & Funkagenda - Man With The Red Face

I will let those of you who listen to it be the judges of its quality, but I am quite positive if you like house, techno, prog, or any combination of the three, you will enjoy this mix.

I have been doing a few mixes leading up to this one, usually focusing on songs all sharing a relation to a similar genre. With this mix I've really branched out and grabbed a variety of different songs to see what I could come up with.

My personal reactions have been quite postive as I think the set flows great and if you can deal with the quite marked variations in pace, and can sit down and listen to the whole thing, I think you will really enjoy it!

Please, all comments and criticisms are welcome, even if you want to flame me.

Mouse sensitivity (8 comments)
Posted by mkeiy @ 05:03 CDT, 7 April 2009 - iMsg
Just wondering if anyone can explain to me why the sensitivity in ql is markedly different from what it is in vq3.

Just before I loaded up my vq3 cfg to get a feel of how my mouse responds there, and I found that I can do a 360 with nigh exactly the same space on my pad. The difference is that vq3 has an almost 'sharper' (sorry, it's the best word I can think of) response.

Aside from that, I can perform a 360 in vq3 with 5sens (pitch/yaw @ 0.020) as compared to one in ql @ 2sens (same pitch/yaw). Seems weird to me, just wondering if anyone could provide some answers.

On the topic of mouse input have ID spoken at all about fixing the fucking god awful windows mode bug that some how reduces your sensitivity occasionally upon entering/exiting windows mode?

Cheers.

I put together this mix tonight and I'm sharing it around wondering what people think of it.

Here is the tracklist
1. Ito & Star - Sudoko Kid (Nic Fanciulli Remix)
2. Mason - The Amsterdam Tape
3. Hertz - Chromium
4. Mason - Kippschwinger
5. Komytea - 9
6. Zoo Brazil - Mirrorball
7. James talk - Warm Milk (Dave Robertson & Jon Gurd Remix)
8. Guy J - Under Pressure

If you're familar with those names you should have I would think a good idea of the pace and tone of the mix. For those of you who don't in a nutshell the mix is a house set.

There is one track which I would not at all say is house and that is Chromium. I say its techno, you say its tomatoe, what-ev. Despite this I feel asthough the songs flow rather well, with I'm sure a few exceptions.

There are a few things I am unsure about. Cheif among these is the 9 -> Mirrorball transition, I really like both of these songs but together I think they are too different to work well. You may disagree. One other thing is that the end of the mix just ends I neglected to fade it out.

Well, love it or hate it, I do hope you enjoy.

Hyundai A-Leauge, What is this nonsense? (3 comments)
Posted by mkeiy @ 14:14 CST, 29 December 2008 - iMsg
For those of you outside Australia, the majority that is. The above mentioned 'leauge' is the 'premier' (ok enough inverted commas) Australian football competition.

You see after Australia made it into the last world cup, the majority of the population decided that soccer was cool (yes, football is a rather recent term for many Australian football followers). I don't remember exactly when the A-Leauge was originally formulated, but none the less, I don't believe it would have been as succesful as it is now were it not for the tremendous change in the Australia sporting imagination. All of a sudden many people who had never seen a champions leauge match or serie a match began talking about football, which is kinda weird, because before the world cup victories, not a WHOLE lot of people cared about football.

Anyway, enough rambling, back to the point. The A-Leauge. Before I go on I will admit my bias, I have never watched an entire match, fuck, I've never watched more than 15 minutes. So I might be entirely wrong with what I am about to account to you, none the less, pay attention.

About an hour ago there was a program on one of the Australian cable sports channels, a highlights program of the previous weeks A-Leauge matches. I didn't grab my attention till I saw the replay of Sydney vs Melbourne come on. Not quite sure what grabbed my attention so much, I think I may have seen it mentioned in the paper.

So anyway, the replay begins. This is what I saw. At some point during the game, a Melbourne player crosses a ball to the left wing, where a team of his is waiting. Not to be outdone a Sydney defender goes in to challenge the cross. After a few feet shuffling and a few yards gone fighting over the ball, the two players eventually end up on the sideline. This is where things get a bit funny. The two players although tangled up over the ball manage to break off eachother as they cross the line, they weren't going to fast at all. SOME HOW, the Melbourne player is unable to stop, you know, the way you sometimes find it hard to stop, after taking a few strides.. So he does what anyone would do: drop a shoulder into the nearest thing, that thing in case being the coach of Sydney.

YES, THATS RIGHT.

A footballer dropped a shoulder into the coach of the opposing team. Yeah, cause that happens.

It was totally avoidable, it served no purpose. Except of course to entertain the crowd. You see because thats what we're all about now isn't it. It's disgracful, it's bad enough in the champions leauge that you see players taking dives, but atleast its done in the hope of gaining your team an advantage. Horribly cuntish yes, but alot of europeans can be horribly cuntish, so it fits. What you don't see is outlandish 'stunts' caused for the benefit of the crowd alone. Fuck that noise.

Aside from that, the gameplay itself is just rediculous. You see players creating these amazing shots out of no where. The shots are rarely challenged, probably because they're so amazing lolO!LOL!! Please. Defence in the A-Leauge is a redundant term, along with anything associated with style, or grace.

The funniest thing however was the way they had edited the game for the replay. Everytime something positive would happen to Melbourne, the screen would cut to a wildy celebrating crowd. Wheew it got funny was when the same shot of the crowd was used whenever ANY thing happened to Melbourne. Finally when the game finished was the truth revealed, the celebrating crowd being the majority of an otherwise under capacity venue.

Because really, no one gives a fuck about A-Leauge, except the shitheads would want to be sold bullshit polished as gold. Gimmicks involving off field persons, rediculous tactics, a sick desire to be recognised as a professional venture.

Wow, what a rant, not to mention the fact that many people won't understand what the fuck I'm going on about. Some will, I hope. Till then, fuck the A-Leauge, support Football.

PS. feel free to pick me up on any grammatical or spelling mistakes, I cannot be bothered to spell check, ta.

Hey o/

A few of you may have seen my earlier journals about me moving to Sweden to study in Linkoping. Well It's all set and I leave Aus on monday. I'm travelling around Europe first with a few friends then going to Swe on the 14th of August.

I'm just after like a few phrases, stuff like
how are you
my name is mike, what is yours
I'm Australian

etc :p

I'm listening to myself try a few phrases and I think I sound kinda German, then again, I don't know what a Swede sounds like - never met a guy Swede only a few girls.

So yeah, any help would be grand! Also, when I pronounce Linkoping, the 'koping' part is meant to sound abit like 'cherping'? No idea, I'll probably sound like a douche for abit.

This isn't a jab at America or Americans (well, maybe it is abit) It's more of a question for those that visit this site about the state of their news.

A friend of mine just returned from NJ and he was telling myself and our mates that few people knew about the cyclone in Burma, is this true? To clarifiy, he said that not one person he met since it occured knew about it and he only learned of it by checking news sites.

I find that very hard to believe, that the people he met did not know about it, or for that matter the recent election drama in Zimbabwe. Is this true, are some people in America really that disconnected from the rest of the world?

In Australia you don't even need to watch foreign correspondance programs to learn of things of a heated politcal or disasterous nature, they are just reported on.

I've only been to the United States once in my life and I was far to young to contemplate such matters but as an adult I find it rather scary that people aren't even interested in world affairs. I don't believe that you must be interested, thats your choice. I believe that people should at least be made aware of things, so that they can at least have a choice to be informed, rather than not.

If you're a fan of electronic music which I know that a fair ammount of us are then you're going to like this website.

If it's broadcast live to the web then this site probably has it. Simply fantastic, I've grabbed so much recently. I recommend anything from Winter music conference for starters :D

I would wager a guess that someone has already posted about this, but I'm to lazy to bother looking :D

Does anyone else think that this looks quite fun? I hope it's not TOTALLY dumbed down and silly, but far out - how apparent is the 'casual' gaming esque design. Looks quite spammy, in laymens terms.

Guess we will wait and see.

Having taken a bit of inspiration from a few of toms photo journals I thought I'd share two photos I took from Daft Punk's performance in Sydney, December 23rd last year.

I was incredibly impressed by how they came out and I have since had both blown up and framed.

They both express the atomsphere of the night incredibly well. The first with the guy and girl on friends shoulders, the latter with his arms up in the air. To the person who it could be argued is making the peace sign with their fingers (just next to the girls left arm) thats my own speculation - but I find that it fits with the overall composure of the shot.

The second is taken just a few minutes later at the completion of the last track, preceeding the encore. I love the sole girl reaching up to clap while you can see Daft Punk siloutted against the backdrop of lights. The colous of both shots also are incredibly appealing. But you have Daft Punks amazing light show to thank for that!

Well, there you go, I just felt like sharing something that I really dig.

Wow, what an epic film.

I don't want to get into a prick waving dick fight over all the cinematic reasons I liked this film because I can't be bothered to type them all out again (I've been going off on the IMDB forums)

But I was so impressed by it, I felt like I was watching a new Kubrick film, to some that may come across as a reason to dismiss it as unoriginal but wau, was it great!

Has anyone else seen it, and if so what were your thoughts? Negative criticism is welcome - just remain intelligent.

Cory Delaney (13 comments)

Has this made it to any of you yet?

http://my.break.com/content/view.aspx?ContentID=434175

I was on holidays when it all went down so I'm only now catching the media backlash of the whole thing in Australia. Frankly, it's just incredible how socially retarded television is becomming.

The background of the story is that sixteen year old Cory threw a gigantic party in Melbourne. He used MySpace to circulate the invite if I recall correctly. Sounds great huh? Well that was until the party went pear shaped and people began to pretty much riot out onto the street and throw bricks and rocks at anything in sight. Cops, dogs and even a helicopter (lol?!) were required to put a stop to it.

Ok, so thats the story. Now I'm going to explain whats going on behind the scenes and how the media is reporting on it.

Apparently Cory has been dodging his parents and not returning home to face the music! Despite being SIXTEEN and appearing on NATIONAL NEWS, his parents still cannot go find him and beat the little shit about the head.

Now that sounds like the set up to a Simpsons episode rather anthing resembling a good story. What I don't get either is how his parents could not have possibly found him yet. He is a minor for christ sake so Channel 9 (where he appeared on our more 'high brow' but still shit account affair program) would be responsible for his safely both medically and in regards to his reputation. Therefore they must have contacted his parents on his behalf.

But nope, didn't happen so instead our airways get flooded by this really sick, and socially backward crap. When the male reporter quotes Cory's father, his words are dripping in contempt. This shit belongs in the home and even then, a home you hoped had some psychological therapy around the corner.

It's disgracful that this sort of thing is featured in the news nowadays. I'm sure you could all relate similar stories that had occured in your own countries. As I am sure this is an indication of not only the Australian medias progression but media broadcast across the world.

This was my, less, erm filtered response to the story.

<Mikey> i mean
<Mikey> the parents
<Mikey> its mind boggling
<Mikey> hes
<Mikey> SIXTEEN
<Mikey> drive to where he is, because really.. it wouldnt hard to find out.
<Mikey> beat the cunt
<Mikey> and drag him home
<Mikey> i mean
<Mikey> we're documenting this fucking dysfunction family on national television
<Mikey> its sick, as well as fucking stupid
<Mikey> tv makes me angry :x

Linköping (I'm gonna be living there!) (70 comments)
Posted by mkeiy @ 11:17 CDT, 1 September 2007 - iMsg
A few months ago I posted asking about Linköping and other places and universities in Sweden.

Well I got accepted for LiU and I am very much excited about it :D

Just a few questions I'm wondering about the uni and city in general.

1) there is a place viewable on Google maps called 'Barracken' slightly north from the main uni grounds. Now to me it looks like a uni bar! cause the photo has a small building with heaps of kegs out back and what appear to be students hanging about - am I right? LOL!

2) what sort of night life is there in Linkoping? I'm into pretty much everything from going to gigs (seeing a band in a pub for you non-Aussies) to clubbing to going to a sports game, schwhatever!

3) has anyone on here lived in the student village? It looks like apartments to me, is it - say, similar to what a dorm would be in the US and UK? I understand that Fox went to this uni? If you know him could you possibly ask him to post here :P

The city looks absolutely beautiful! So green (when it's not snowy :P) but I'm quite sure it will be Spring when I arrive, or soon after (mid-late Jan 2008). Well, hope you guys can help us with those questions!


I'd be keen to meet any of you who could help us out with this sort of stuff when I'm there, smash up a pub or something haha. Meeting new people is always a great experience

Ok, I will admit, I did not have high expectations for this film. Which is why I downloaded it, instead of paying money to see it!

It was enjoyable, and it did some interesting things, and kept you entertained throughout. What struck me dumb was the
Don't get me wrong, I rather enjoyed this movie but those above mentioned occurrences just made my sides split.

US Presidential Campaign (60 comments)

Just a question for the Americans that frequent this site.

What do you think of Mike Gravel?

I must say I am both incredibly elated to hear a presidential candidate talking about the things he wishes to implement as I am worried that the mass of Christian voters will simply sand bag him.

I wish dearly for a man of such conviction (as he apparently seems to be) to step into the Australian political arena, but what are your thoughts as it's going to be your votes that matter.

Studying overseas (108 comments)
Posted by mkeiy @ 20:48 CDT, 31 May 2007 - iMsg
Sup,

I'm currently researching destinations where I would like to study next year. The two countries I am starting with are Sweden and the Netherlands.

At the moment the uni's I'm looking at are:
1) Utrecht University (Netherlands)
2) Tilburg University (Netherlands)
3) Jonkoping University (Sweden)
4) Linkoping University (Sweden)

There are others I am considering but I am still unsure if my Uni (Macquarie, Sydney) has relations with them or not (uni of Stockholm/Amsterdam etc).

The reasons I am looking at these two countries is that they are listed as two of the english speaking uni's in europe. and also because I really want to visit them :)

What I am wondering is anyone here currently enrolled at any of these uni's or lives in/near them? Just want some general info about the lifestyle etc :)

thanks for any info left in this journal!
