An Hypothetical Scenario that originated Brad Paisley’s song ‘Accidental Racist’

illllllllllllli:

The man feels very awkwardly racist while standing by the starbucks pick-up coffee shelf, he crosses his arms over his chest a few times, trying to cover up the flag, but why, he sort of mutters to himself and shakes his head like an electrocuted rat, nuhuh, nuhuh, I ain’t a racist, he tries to say and gets just then a little mad at the black man who is working as a barista but that’s not right either, come on man, he tries to smile at the barista, but that don’t feel right either and it’s a sort of half-wept lemonface, now he bobs his head a little bit to the void coffee soundtrack, is he really worrying about what kind of tweets people might be writing about him now, is this really the modern world we’re living in, I mean, I guess, but I know I’m not racist, he starts to sing to himself in his inner sing-song voice, the voice he knows so well, the one that riles him and reminds him who he is, he’s a country music songwriter and he ain’t racist, he hums a bit, but silently, hums in his head, I’m not a raaaacist, humm humm, sorrrrrry to-th’barista, humm humm, I’m just a whiiiiiite man, living in a south laaaaand, humm, it’s getting there, isn’t it, he nods at the barista, more confident, he is aggressive with his smile and rather than cover his t-shirt he projects his chest a bit forward, he asks the barista where the barista is from, the barista says, ‘from here’ and he says ‘well, great, that’s great, nice to meet you,’ and tries to reach over the espresso machine to give the barista a handshake but he can’t reach very well, so he asks the barista to come out from behind the counter and they shake hands in front of the coffee shop.

And… AWESOME TWIST… the barista is LL Cool J!

phetdreams:

About a month ago I put my money where my mouth was and built a version of the Paul Keating insult generator for Android (after the iOS version hit number 1 in the Australian App Store [tell your friends]). We sold a few hundred copies on Android in the last month, so that’s all good. Today I…

There’s nothing so classy as resenting an artist for being successful because they didn’t “pay their dues” in your eyes.  In the world of art, you either have chops or you don’t. Some people are self-taught, others are not. How you get there is less important than how good you are.
There are lots of ways to become a successful artist, and going to school is just one of them.  But you think taking a class or getting a diploma guarantees fame and fortune, you’re just a delusional asshole.

Goes the same for all the arts, I’d think. In both directions, mind you - delusional pop musicians who think their lack of training means their creativity is unfettered; and delusional classical/jazz musicians who think their training means they’re automatically superior.
So it goes.

Hullo people in Sydney

just a note to say the event on the 25th at the City Recital Hall Angel Place seems to be growing, like a misshapen and disturbing fungoid stain on a cellar wall. My favourite string quartet, FourPlay, have now become part of the evening, so the first half of the night will…

Yup, that’s us :)

Internet Hugbox: A simple proposal on Android vs iOS →

phetdreams:

A few weeks ago we released the Paul Keating Insult Generator for iOS to quite a great degree of fanfare and media coverage. Cool, that’s all great, yada yada. However Alan and I received a ridiculous amount of tweets, emails and the rest of people demanding an Android version. I spent a bit of…

Dan Nolan makes some interesting points here about developing for Android.

As someone who recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy S3 (admittedly pretty much the highest of high ends of the Android market), I couldn’t be happier with the switch from iOS. I’ve never owned an iPhone without jailbreaking it, never upgrade until I can, and with Android 4.1.2(-ish), I had a huge amount more customisation available immediately, even before I rooted and put a custom ROM on. I prefer the notifications on Android, I prefer the way multitasking works, I love the swype keyboard (I’m using TouchPal’s) and integration of LastPass, the ability to run Firefox and share tabs and bookmarks… I totally love being able to tell iTunes to fuck the fuck off: now I can just copy folders onto the SD card - oh, the SD card! I have a 16GB phone which I’ve expanded with a 64GB SD card I mean WTF. And I can replace or swap the battery whenever I like. The list goes on.

But I do realise that the Android market is hopelessly fragmented, with the large proportion of devices using ancient (in contemporary terms) versions of the OS, and it does seem to have much more difficulty convincing people to spend money on apps. So it goes.
Whatever comes next, you won’t find me back in iOS-land phonewise. I’m keeping my iPad so I can keep in the loop but that’s all.

So, if you have an Android device and want to help convince Dan it’s not a dead loss, consider buying his ridiculous(ly fun) Paul Keating insults generator.
