Dublin Web Summit

Um I sorta thought I would take a bit of Action to publises Moi and BM. There was a conference to which I was invited. A few of the Big Boys were going to be keynoting. Chad Hurley, Jack Dorsey Nicklas Zennstrom, The Founders : Twitter, Skype and Youtube. I couldn’t go because I was broke I asked our local county enterprise board for 200 euros they said they were broke. (How they spent 3.3 million Euros in 24 hours beats me) So I thought I would go up and cause a bit of Mayhem. DublinWebSummit.com is their site I thought I would get their attention so I bought DublinWebSummit.net DublinWebSummit.org DublinWebSummit.biz and DublinWebSummit.info then I regestered DublinWebSummit as a business name with the Companies Registration Office in Dublin. It appears I am DublinWebSummit. So I thought they would be a bit polite. I had my marketing manager with me Declan “Spoons” Walshin a top hat, me in my suit with my Brunel Tie and a big sign saying “Dublin Web Summit is Using 20th Century Technology, (It wasn’t like Our conference in onLand theirs was so yesterday. Brian Cowen (Our Irish PM) and my local TD, Brian Cowen is a BIFFO which is what they call people from Offaly : Big Ignorant Fuckers From Offaly and Offaly County Enterprise Board are Morons and BogOfAllen.com Rules. Thats where I live in Offaly, its the largest and oldest recorded Peat Bog in Ireland. Records start at 200 AD. So of we went. Im not daft so on the way I reported to the local cop shop and told them I was doing a demo. We had a chat, nothing offensive Sir? Nope! Ok Its Your Right! Off we went! : My In my Bright Yellow Flourescent Garda Jacket with BogOfAllen.com on the back and Declan in his top hat. (He plays the spoons Very Very well (been featured on Youtube (Declan Walsh Entertains 2000 hits)) Heres The Press Release:

I went in and asked if they could make an exception for a Poor Disabled Reporter (I have my own registered newspaper) who was a Microsoft Partner, Bizspark start up and over 60. And an Entrepreneur running 80 domains and that officially I was DublinWebSummit. They said No. Declan started playing the spoons and I started giving out 500 leaflets I had printed while doing a bit of a Jig :

Heres The Leaflet:

I had 300 of my OnlyFashion.biz business cards which me Helena and Patrick had spent hours writing BogofAllen.com on the back. So we started our Demo. Serendipitously RTÉ our National Television station were just Leaving and they fimed us. Ha! About 30 minutes later the cops turned up in a big van with blue lights flashing. They nodded to me and I waved and they marched inside to talk with the organisers. Ten minutes later they came out I asked if everything was ok? They said “Carry On Sir” and saluted. hehehehe. Oh the day before I got into more trouble!

STOP PRESS: I HAVE JUST RECEIVED A PHONE CALL FROM OFFALY COUNTY COUNCIL:

at 8.30 am this morning I placed my business card measuring 8.5cms x 5cms with “Bog of Allen” written on it. I Placed the card in a Cars door sill so that it would not blow away and litter. I told the person in reception that I had Done This. She said ok and can I have one.  At 11.54 am I received a phone call purporting to be  from the council 05793 46800 (They Masked Their ID) that I am to be prosecuted AND Fined  for littering.  My Response : See You In Court. Come visit me in MountJoy as I Wiil not pay!  I spent months, mostly without pay authoring Their Web site (link here in the Internet Archive)  in March 2000 to April 2001 If You look at the source code

philp finlay-bryan Typical BIFFO!

Response : I passed a skip grabbed suitable materials and made a big sign the text reads :Official Offaly County Council say BogOfAllen.com is (in very very small letters)to Be FINE (in very very small letter)  D (in very very smal letters ) For Littering. I paraded up and down from 4.30pm to 6pm.

hehehehe

That night I thought Oh they will think Im a cybersquatter and I hate Cybersqutters so I thought I better put together a DublinWebSummit Business plan so I did a bit of the old cogitating and made this!

The next day I went back for the last session, dressed smart casual and asked nicely if I could stand at the back. The chap was less than polite. I tried to pick up a brochure and he screamed “CALL SECURITY” and a woman at the back picked up the phone and demanded Security. I left. Well I hung out for a bit had a few chats. One guy said he only found the place because someone had put my pic on Twitter.

Got Home! They had cut off my Internet because I hadn’t payed my bill. Oh Merde! And I had 20 euros to my name! I needed 248 euros because I was in arrears too. See? I told you I was poor, anyway buying a domain name is far more important than having an Internet connection!….Oh, oops, um something wrong with that sentence…. I did tell you I was mad….? Si i wandered into town and waited for a Prod From God. I looked cool, rich and I was wearing Sunglasses. Hello O2 my mobiles O2. Hmmm wi fi modem! Ok blah blah blah lalala “Well Philip we can do you a six month contract for 59 euros (I only had 20) a years contract for 29 euros (shit) 0r a free one with an 18 month contract. ” Ha! Sorted! Except theres a 15 gig a month limit. I’ve alredy used 4 gigs in 14 hours. 😦
Anyway I ended up making this My DublinWebSummit / Blue Mars Business Plan:

Oh scary stuff. Freud loved cats he said “Time spent with Cats is never wasted. ” When he discovered Cocaine he thought he had found the answer to all humankinds problems (some people still do) until his best mate OD ed on the Stuff.  Merchant Bankers Rule on Drug Money who bailed out the banks to the tune of over 300 million dollars in cash? Coke dealers laundering their drug money. Be Kool dot net with a k advertises my web site. #craic in Irish,  a bit of craic, any craic means FUN!

New Build, Fullerine and Carpe Diem

Flat Fact : Carpe diem is a phrase from a Latin poem by Horace (see “Source” section below). It is popularly translated as “seize the day”. Carpe means “pick, pluck, pluck off, gather”, but Horace used the word to mean “enjoy, make use of”..”

Enjoy, Make Use Of, Gather

For me, when I see something cool I enjoy it and then I MAKE USE OF IT! I Seize it. My PA had logged off my account and logged in to hers. When I was back in front of my computer I started Google.

WTF? Wow thats cool! What is it? I looked at the source of the page and it was described as a buckyball. Hmm, new to me. I did some searching and REsearching. Wow thats interesting. I should know this…did a bit more researching ….hmmm Fullerene… Great a little vid explaining it. Right I’ll seize that, so i turned it into an animation BECAUSE I KNOW HOW TO DO STUFF!! Here is the result >>>

“Time and Tide Waits For No Man” [sic] btw sic = This word is sometimes inserted in a quotation [sic], to call attention to the fact that some remarkable or inaccurate expression, misspelling, or the like, is literally reproduced. So many of our stock phrases use the masculine “Man” , for me this engenders the male superiority trip dissing Woman again. So use it please if you must quote.

Every since we lost the pumpkins I called the welcome area boring. I tried hiding in a bush and that was fun for a while. The Wecome Tree is of course important BUT Generally Welcome was boring!!! It is not anymore the video is on its way in the meantime I an being bounced by waves over the natural bridge on a an island in Welcome! Not Drowning but Waving. I Love It!!!!!!

Sorry, just had to make this. I Am So Excited!! Thanks to Jo Goode 6music for the sounds. I just left the radio running

Stange : I laughed so hard I couldn’t tell you what I was laughing at, so i videoed it. Hey. Its ok to smoke marijuana. Just don’t inhale!


Heres the vid:

Epilogue : I made this this morning for Shaun’s Blog. Well, its International Beard Day and Shaun’s been chatting about it so did a bit more seizing and graphicalling.  Im in the process of setting up Neologising.com coz thats what I do. When I want a word that doesn’t exist i neologise, its kinda caught on. (ssshh its also fun). Of course to be a “proper” neologism its got to be accepted. I just like evolving language. You probably know that “Google” is a neologism and so is “Twitter”……

Misty Hollow Quest 3

Each clue will be close to the Misty Hollow Magical ball to teleport to the next location. There are only 5 for this quest to start. The next city release will have more quest, better stories, and webpages setup.

Touch Me

Davy and V love caves and wonder if there are more here. So they swam back to the small island, and set off to the mainland by the beach. Davy being the daydreamer he is starts getting wild idea’s about moving here. He first envisions a huge dock. V knowing Davy so well looked at his eye’s and notices something is up. She ask.. What are you thinking about now? Davy replied I envision a boat dock here.. V just rolls her eyes..

Touch Me

]Head for that cave for the mh magical ball teleport.

The cave is well hidden. Its best to run to the bottom of the ocean towards the mountain. You will find another “non” clickable mh magical ball. head that way, and up the ramp leading to the cave. Once at the docks the teleport takes you back to the spawn point. Your next clue is on 2 fingers island. 2 fingers island is very easy to notice. This island has 2 rock formations on both sides. *HINT* the island is behind the shops, and to the left. Run towards the mh huts, and look left from the beach area.

He suffered from severe bipolar disorder for most of his life, having at least ten major mental breakdowns, several lasting over a year. He spoke candidly about his condition and its effect on his life:

“I have got so low that I have asked to be hospitalised and for deep narcosis (sleep). I cannot stand being awake. The pain is too much… Something has happened to me, this vital spark has stopped burning – I go to a dinner table now and I don’t say a word, just sit there like a dodo. Normally I am the centre of attention, keep the conversation going – so that is depressing in itself. It’s like another person taking over, very strange. The most important thing I say is ‘good evening’ and then I go quiet.”

Spike Miiligan. I grew up listening to the Goon Show, rolling on the floor laughing my arse off with my brother. The man was a genius. Look:::

He is also noted as a popular writer of comical verse, much of his poetry was written for children, Silly Verse for Kids was published in 1959. After the success of the ground-breaking British radio programme, The Goon Show, Milligan translated this success to television with Q5; a surreal sketch show which is credited as a major influence on the members of Monty Python’s Flying Circus.

I’m depressed now. I wonder what time it is?

A Word from our sponsors:::

Depressed? You Eat Too Many Carbs!!!!

So, I feel a bit SAD. Must be the time of the year too. Think I’ll stop here, I feel tired. Go back to bed after a plate of chips:::

Symptoms of SAD may consist of: difficulty waking up in the morning, tendency to oversleep as well as to overeat, and especially a craving for carbohydrates, which leads to weight gain. Other symptoms include a lack of energy, difficulty concentrating on completing tasks, and withdrawal from friends, family, and social activities. All of this leads to the depression, pessimism, and lack of pleasure which characterize a person suffering from this disorder.

Poor Human Beings. Thank God Robots don’t get depressed …or do they?

Having suffered from depression during much of his life (although less so with the onset of old age), Cohen has written much (especially in his early work) about depression and suicide. The wife of the protagonist of Beautiful Losers commits a gory suicide; “Seems So Long Ago, Nancy” is about a suicide; suicide is mentioned in the darkly comic “One of Us Cannot Be Wrong”; “Dress Rehearsal Rag” is about a last-minute decision not to kill oneself; a general atmosphere of depression pervades such songs as “Please Don’t Pass Me By” and “Tonight Will Be Fine”. As in the aforementioned “Hallelujah”, music itself is the subject of many songs, including “Tower of Song”, “A Singer Must Die”, and “Jazz Police”.

Social justice often shows up as a theme in his work, where he seems, especially in later albums, to expound a leftist politics, albeit with culturally conservative elements. In “Democracy”, lamenting, “the wars against disorder/ … the sirens night and day/ … the fires of the homeless/ … the ashes of the gay”, he concludes that the United States is actually not a democracy. He has made the observation (in “Tower of Song”) that, “the rich have got their channels in the bedrooms of the poor/ And there’s a mighty judgment coming”. In the title track of The Future he recasts this prophecy on a pacifist note: “I’ve seen the nations rise and fall/ …/ But love’s the only engine of survival”. In “Anthem”, he promises that “the killers in high places [who] say their prayers out loud/ … [are] gonna hear from me”.

Several Cohen songs speak of abortion, always either as something distasteful or even atrocious. In “The Future”, he sings sarcastically “Destroy another fetus now/ We don’t like children anyhow”. In “Stories of the Street” Cohen speaks of “The age of lust is giving birth/ And both the parents ask/ The nurse to tell them fairy tales/ from both sides of the glass”.

“Diamonds in the Mine” is often quoted as being a song about abortion with the lyric: “The only man of energy/ Yes the revolution’s pride/ He trained a hundred women/ Just to kill an unborn child”, always being used to substantiate this. However, extensive research suggests this song is actually about the demise of the hedonism of the 1960s. The “man of energy” referred to is Charles Manson and the “unborn child” is Sharon Tate’s unborn baby when the Manson “Family” committed the atrocities in 1969.

In “The Land of Plenty”, he characterizes the United States (if not the opulent West in general) of benightedness: “May the lights in The Land of Plenty/ Shine on the truth some day”.

“Recurring themes in Cohen’s work include love and sex, religion, psychological depression, and music itself. He has also engaged with certain political themes, though sometimes ambiguously so. “Suzanne” mixes a wistful type of love song with a religious meditation, themes that are also mixed in “Joan of Arc”. “Famous Blue Raincoat” is from the point of view of a man whose marriage has been broken (in exactly what degree is ambiguous in the song) by his wife’s infidelity with his close friend, and is written in the form of a letter to that friend, to whom he writes, “I guess that I miss you/ I guess I forgive you … Know your enemy is sleeping/ And his woman is free”, while “Everybody Knows” deals in part with social inequality (“…the poor stay poor/ And the rich get rich”), and the harsh reality of AIDS: “… the naked man and woman/ Are just a shining artifact of the past”.

Ho Hum…..

Breakfast of Champions


[Square Brackets Mine]
Breakfast of Champions (1973)

Full title: Breakfast of Champions, Or Goodbye Blue Monday! [Yep It’s Monday Today]

I have talked to old men who were on battlefields during that minute. They have told me in one way or another that the sudden silence was the Voice of God. So we still have among us some men who can remember when God spoke clearly to mankind. [Silently]

* And so on.
o recurring phrase

* Charm was a scheme for making strangers like and trust a person immediately, no matter what the charmer had in mind.
o page 19

* I can have oodles of charm when I want to.[Me Too]
o page 20

* I will come to a time in my backwards trip when November eleventh, accidentally my birthday, was a sacred day called Armistice Day. When I was a boy, and when Dwayne Hoover was a boy, all the people of all the nations which had fought in the First World War were silent during the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour of Armistice Day, which was the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
It was during that minute in nineteen hundred and eighteen, that millions upon millions of human beings stopped butchering one another. I have talked to old men who were on battlefields during that minute. They have told me in one way or another that the sudden silence was the Voice of God. So we still have among us some men who can remember when God spoke clearly to mankind.
Armistice Day has become Veterans’ Day. Armistice Day was sacred. Veterans’ Day is not.
So I will throw Veterans’ Day over my shoulder. Armistice Day I will keep. I don’t want to throw away any sacred things.
What else is sacred? Oh, Romeo and Juliet, for instance.
And all music is.[Everybody Knows]

* Ideas or the lack of them can cause disease.[YEP]

* Let us devote to unselfishness the frenzy we once gave gold and underpants.

Roses are red
And ready for plucking
You’re sixteen
And ready for high school.

* Teachers of children in the United States of America wrote this date on blackboards again and again, and asked the children to memorize it with pride and joy: 1492. The teachers told the children that this was when their continent was discovered by human beings. Actually, millions of human beings were already living full and imaginative lives on the continent in 1492. That was simply the year in which sea pirates began to cheat and rob and kill them.[You Just Gotta Love Human Beings Doncha]

* Like most science-fiction writers, Trout knew almost nothing about science.

What is the purpose of life?

* Roses are red
And ready for plucking
You’re sixteen
And ready for high school.

* To be
the eyes
and ears
and conscience
of the Creator of the Universe,
you fool.
o Kilgore Trout’s unwritten reply to the question “What is the purpose of life?”

* Trout trudged onward, a stranger in a strange land. His pilgrimage was rewarded with new wisdom, which would never have been his had he remained in his basement in Cohoes. He learned the answer to a question many human beings were asking themselves so frantically: “What’s blocking the traffic on the westbound barrel of the Midland City stretch of the Interstate?”

Symbols can be so beautiful, sometimes. [Ωβ⟶∞ΩΔ]

* I was on par with the Creator of the Universe there in the dark in the cocktail lounge. I shrunk the Universe to a ball exactly one light-year in diameter. I had it explode. I had it disperse itself again.
Ask me a question, any question. How old is the Universe? It is one half-second old, but the half-second has lasted one quintillion years so far. Who created it? Nobody created it. It has always been here.
What is time? It is a serpent which eats its tail, like this:
This is the snake which uncoiled itself long enough to offer Eve the apple, which looked like this:
What was the apple which Eve and Adam ate? It was the Creator of the Universe.
And so on.
Symbols can be so beautiful, sometimes.

* He was a graduate of West Point, a military academy which turned young men into homicidal maniacs for use in war.[homocidalmaniacs]

Our awareness is all that is alive and maybe sacred in any of us. Everything else about us is dead machinery.

* Why are so many Americans treated by their government as though their lives were as disposable as paper facial tissue? Because that was the way authors customarily treated bit-part players in their made-up tales.

* It was Trout’s fantasy that somebody would be outraged by the footprints. This would give him the opportunity to reply grandly, “What is it that offends you so? I am simply using man’s first printing press. You are reading a bold and universal headline which says ,’I am here, I am here, I am here.’

* Listen:
The waitress brought me another drink. She wanted to light my hurricane lamp again. I wouldn’t let her. “Can you see anything in the dark, with your sunglasses on?” she asked me.
“The big show is inside my head,” I said

* We are healthy only to the extent that our ideas are humane.
o Kilgore Trout’s epitaph
o Unsourced paraphrase or variant: We are human only to the extent that our ideas remain humane.

* Hey — guess what: You’re the only creature with free will. How does that make you feel?

* Our awareness is all that is alive and maybe sacred in any of us. Everything else about us is dead machinery.

* There is no order in the world around us, we must adapt ourselves to the requirements of chaos instead. It is hard to adapt to chaos, but it can be done. I am living proof of that: It can be done.

* Here was what Kilgore Trout cried out to me in my father’s voice: “Make me young, make me young, make me young!”
o Last line [Ω]

Better Finish. I know this is a repetion I know Iknow Iknow but I need Cheering up ok?

OK?

Had to Update this

Is my hair ok?

EA Games, Dragon Age. I made a joke about this stupid “game”. I spent 20 mins getting my face right. BEFORE I started the game. The mage was quick. Ynys as you see here is nice, she is a noble woman and a Rogue. Her Dog Shiva obeys her and only her, goes everywhere, fights like a demon, she can pick any lock. You will see tho, Aelfryd,[ÆLFÞRYÐ = Anglo-Saxon name composed of the Old English elements ælf “elf” and þryð “strength,” hence “elfin strength.”] …my Elfin lady warrior. She is my star. Spent an hour and a half getting her right. She’s not so pretty, not a looker like but not homely either. She’s a bit skinny, red hair. A bit Irish….. She has character. We spent the first two hours getting ready for her wedding. She has a bit of an attitude see. Humans treat Elves like scum. She was nearly raped by the local lord. She kicks ass but the humans were too strong. She doesn’t like humans very much. She was rescued by Alistair and he took her off for training. While getting ready to become a Grey Warden she was wandering around checking things out, a bit lost, with her crap clothes and little dagger. She chatted to lots of people. After about 20 minutes she was at the forest gate. The guard turned her away, said it was too dangerous for a little elf, especially a female. She turned to leave when a human messenger arrived and he spoke to the Guard:

He said to the Guard ” I have to deliver Sir Green’s Iron Broad Sword. Do you know where his tent is?”
Aelfryd could interrupt, she had four choices:

  • 1. No, I am new here. Can you help me?
  • 2. Who is Sir Green? Please tell me about him
  • 3. I don’t know anything about that
  • 4. I know Sir Green, I am just going to his tent now, perhaps I can take it for you?

Aelfryd didn’t hesitate for a moment. What would you do?
