Steve Jobs, I Dare You

May 29th, 2007 - 9:37 am

From C-Net:

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates will share a stage [Wednesday, May 30] at the D: All Things Digital tech conference in California next week for a 75-minute joint interview.

Besides a brief shared appearance at an Apple event in 1983, the two have never appeared together in public before.

Steve, I dare you–no, I double-dog dare you to walk onto that stage and say, “Hi, I’m a Mac, and he’s a P.C.” while pointing at Gates.

C’mon, man, the little dork would flip out. Besides, nobody can turn down a double-dog dare.

UPDATE: Okay, maybe you can turn down a double-dog dare.

At any rate (and in all seriousness), it looks like the Jobs-Gates summit yielded a fascinating discussion. Here’s Engadget’s running blog on the talk, which is a bit jagged (not a criticism, transcribing something like this “live” is a tough job), but still a great read. Thanks to commenter “vitaboy” for the link and the heads-up.

May 25, 1977

May 25th, 2007 - 8:20 am

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock this week, you’re probably aware that today is the thirtieth anniversary of opening day for the original “Star Wars.”

Yeah, that makes me feel old, too.

I didn’t see the first movie on opening night, but then again, very few people did–20th Century Fox had low expectations for “Star Wars,” and it only opened on 32 screens that long ago and far away Memorial Day weekend. The rest, as they say, is history: the movie shattered attendance records at those lucky 32 theaters, and new prints were rushed out to the rest of the country so fast, some of them were still wet from processing when they came out of the cannisters.

Somewhat less long ago, on the eve of the release of 1999′s “The Phantom Menace,” I wrote up a fairly giddy essay on my own memories and impressions from the original movie, topped off with expectations for what turned out to be a decidedly disappointing “new Star Wars” that was hours away from opening. Most of it still stands up; here’s a sample:

A long time ago, in a multiplex far, far away….

To be more precise, it was late May of 1977, at the Mall Garden Twin in Albertville, Alabama. We were visiting my mother’s parents, and most of my extended family went out one warm night to catch a movie. I was eight, fresh out of the second grade, and the movie, of course, was Star Wars.

Even at that age, I was already a science fiction fan. My grandfather worked for NASA, my then-teenaged aunt had introduced me to “Star Trek” on television, and my bedroom was filled with all the space paraphernalia that one little boy could amass without getting into serious trouble. The cliche would be to say that none of that prepared me for Star Wars… but the truth would be saying that all of it prepared me for the experience.

That movie was all I’d ever wanted, even before I knew what I wanted out of a movie–it was flash and bang and glorious vistas and scary monsters and fantastic spaceships and grand heroes and diabolical villains and magic and laser swords and a princess and a knight and talking robots, all wrapped up in stirring music and a vast, epic scale. Star Wars hit me, with all its extraordinary, playful velocity at just the right age. I–and most of my contemporaries–have never been the same. In retrospect, we never had a chance.

I should note that the Mall Garden Twin (now closed) was not one of the original 32 theaters, so it’s almost certain that I should have said “early June” instead of “late May” above. At any rate, it was quite a time, and lackluster prequels be damned, it was a great time to be a kid discovering that far away galaxy for the first time. We’re unlikely to ever see or experience anything quite like it ever again… but you never know. If it could happen once, it could happen again.

Solo Projects

May 24th, 2007 - 8:10 pm

It took a while, but at least some music artists are starting to get it. With a hat-tip to Andrew McNeice’s compulsively-readable guilty pleasure Melodicrock.com, here’s an excerpt from an interview with Nine Inch Nails impresario Trent Reznor:

It must be an odd time then to have a new album, Year Zero, out?

It’s a very odd time to be a musician on a major label, because there’s so much resentment towards the record industry that it’s hard to position yourself in a place with the fans where you don’t look like a greedy asshole. But at the same time, when our record came out I was disappointed at the number of people that actually bought it. If this had been 10 years ago

I would think “Well, not that many people are into it. OK, that kinda sucks. Yeah I could point fingers but the blame would be with me, maybe I’m not relevant”. But on this record, I know people have it and I know it’s on everybody’s iPods, but the climate is such that people don’t buy it because it’s easier to steal it.

You’re a bit of a computer geek. You must have been there, too?

Oh, I understand that — I steal music too, I’m not gonna say I don’t. But it’s tough not to resent people for doing it when you’re the guy making the music, that would like to reap a benefit from that. On the other hand, you got record labels that are doing everything they can to piss people off and rip them off. I created a little issue down here because the first thing I did when I got to Sydney is I walk into HMV, the week the record’s out, and I see it on the rack with a bunch of other releases. And every release I see: $21.99, $22.99, $24.99. And ours doesn’t have a sticker on it. I look close and ‘Oh, it’s $34.99′. So I walk over to see our live DVD Beside You in Time, and I see that it’s also priced six, seven, eight dollars more than every other disc on there. And I can’t figure out why that would be.

Did you have a word to anyone?

Well, in Brisbane I end up meeting and greeting some record label people, who are pleasant enough, and one of them is a sales guy, so I say “Why is this the case?” He goes “Because your packaging is a lot more expensive”. I know how much the packaging costs — it costs me, not them, it costs me 83 cents more to have a CD with the colour-changing ink on it. I’m taking the hit on that, not them. So I said “Well, it doesn’t cost $10 more”. “Ah, well, you’re right, it doesn’t. Basically it’s because we know you’ve got a core audience that’s gonna buy whatever we put out, so we can charge more for that. It’s the pop stuff we have to discount to get people to buy it. True fans will pay whatever”. And I just said “That’s the most insulting thing I’ve heard. I’ve garnered a core audience that you feel it’s OK to rip off? F— you’.

That kind of thing definitely didn’t start with NIN in 2007. More than 20 years ago, I was working in a little record store (yes, they were still records back then) in south Alabama when Metallica’s “$5.98 EP Garage Days Re-Revisited” record came out. The band was (admirably) concerned enough about stores jacking up the price of a short covers album that they put the list price in the title. My boss, who’d wanted to run it up to $9.99 to take advantage of Metallica’s then-cult audience, was pissed.

At any rate, it’s about time that successful artists with established audiences started to notice what (ahem) some of us figured out quite a while back: when your fans have the internet, you really don’t need a record company:

Given all that, do you have any idea how to approach the release of your next album?

I’ve have one record left that I owe a major label, then I will never be seen in a situation like this again. If I could do what I want right now, I would put out my next album, you could download it from my site at as high a bit-rate as you want, pay $4 through PayPal. Come see the show and buy a T-shirt if you like it. I would put out a nicely packaged merchandise piece, if you want to own a physical thing. And it would come out the day that it’s done in the studio, not this “Let’s wait three months” bulls—.

UPDATE: My bad for initially leaving off the last quote, which contained the real point of the post in the first place.

Debate Drunkblogging – The Wrap

May 15th, 2007 - 8:34 pm

Rudy won tonight, if for no other reason than the well-deserved bitch-slapping he administered to Ron Paul. Everybody else lost, Paul doubly so.

That is all.

UPDATE: So who sucked tonight on American Idol?

Debate Drunkblogging – LIVE!

May 15th, 2007 - 7:03 pm

7:03 (All times Mountain) I hope they do the candidate introductions twice this time around. I promised myself, tonight I’d remember everybody’s names.

7:05 Already I don’t miss Chris Matthews. I bet I’m not the only person to say that – tonight or any night.

7:07 McCain looks a lot less Ho-Ahh! tonight, compared to a couple weeks ago. Does that mean he’s on or off his meds?

7:08 Thompson looks like he’s playing under a handicap – answering questions while drinking a glass of water. With a live ferret in it. Could he be more uncomfortable?

7:09 “Mitt Romney – will paint any car for $99.95!”

7:11 Brownback – you’ll forgive me here for being serious – seems to be making a good point, and making it well. However, I doubt I’ll remember it, or him, by tomorrow morning.

7:13 Rudy looks like he took McCain’s vitamins from the last debate. IE, a lot more confidence-inspiring than the last time around. Only, you know, without all the manic gestures. After what I thought was a big stumble, he could be making a nice comeback.

7:15 Tancredo’s tie is so red, it doesn’t even have a pattern on it. We’ll call that look, “I am so a serious candidate.”

7:16 Ron Paul was just asked if he was running for the nomination of the wrong party. Why didn’t he just say “Maybe,” then smile at the camera for the rest of his time? It would’ve been perfect.

7:17 Who is that guy who isn’t Tancredo or Brownback?

7:18 Who is that guy who isn’t that guy who isn’t Tancredo or Brownback?

7:19 Who is that guy who isn’t the two other guys or Tancredo or Brownback?

7:20 “Mitt Romney – your first choice for professional labiaplasty!”

7:22 Best play of the night so far: McCain running to the right while backpedaling his anti-Bush-tax-cut vote. And he didn’t look awkward doing it. 4.2 difficulty multiplier, and even the East German judge gave him a 9.8.

7:24 Best line of the night so far: “Spending money like John Edwards at a beauty shop.” It’s from one of those interchangeable guys wearing a dark suit and red (or maybe blue-ish) tie.

7:25 Rudy is showing his amateur side again, if he really thinks Washington is easier to tame than NYC. Split decision, at best.

7:27 Thompson is bragging that he has over 1,900 vetoes. To that, all I can do is finish my second martini in one big, icy gulp. Back after a refill…

7:30 Strangest coincidence of the night: The live ferret’s name? Ron Paul.

7:33 Say hello to my little friend, Third Martini.

7:36 If I’d have known there would be commercial breaks, I would’ve waited to make my cocktail. If I had known the webcast break would be filled with overly-earnest college students – dressed like candidates, no less – I’d have made tequila shooters.

7:37 One of the overly-earnest college students (easy to pick out, with the short hair and red tie) talked about “Duncan Hunter.” Is that a real candidate?

7:39 The question to Rudy is, “you’re pro an awful lot of gay stuff, huh?”

7:40 The follow up question is, “I mean really, really gay.”

7:42 Rudy claims that abortions went down 16% while he was Mayor of NYC. During that same time, Bill Clinton spent most of his time hundreds of miles to the south, in Washington, DC. Coincidence?

7:43 What happened to Crazy McCain from a couple weeks ago. I kinda miss that flailing, shouting madman.

7:44 Impressive, cutting taxes 94 times. Now if only I knew who he was.

7:45 “Mitt Romney – the name you can trust for industrial-strength air purification!”

7:46 Drunk and frustrated moment of the night: It’s not the ’80s. Reagan is dead. Let’s move on.

7:48 Upstairs, I can hear the baby shouting, screaming, and struggling against Melissa as she tries to get him to go to sleep. He seems more comfortable than Thompson.

7:50 It’s all-abortion talk, all the time. Bored now.

7:53 “Mitt Romney – just a dab’ll do ya!”

7:56 McCain probably shouldn’t brag about how close he is to making a deal – making a deal in a Congress even less popular that Bush is.

7:58 “Mitt Romney – now has tanning salons in eight convenient locations all around town!”

7:59 If I’m not mistaken, McCain just hit Romney, and hard. And right in the pee-pee, too.

8:00 Rudy just thanked whoever it was that accused of of “being soft” “on anything.” Heh.

8:01 “KZ” comments, “Quite a contrast from the two previous debates on MSNBC. Fox news appears to be run by competent adults.” Strange, from the network that practically invented shouting. Strange – but true.

8:03 “Knock on the front door because the back door is closed.” I got distracted and didn’t catch what he was talking about, but I’m pretty sure it was something other than personal lubricant.

8:04 Paul is so quaint, quoting a George Washington doctrine that was outdated by the end of the 19th Century, much less the 20th. Also, did I hear correctly. Did Paul just blame 9/11 on the No Fly Zones? Did he freaking really?

8:05 Thank you Rudy, for punching Paul in the mouth. Or at least, unlike anybody else on that stage, saying something back to him.

8:08 We’re talking about parole hearings? What’s Mike Dukakis doing at a Republican debate?

8:10 I got a lot of laughs at the last debate, talking about “knife-wielding spider monkeys jacked up on Mini Thins.” I just didn’t expect anybody to take me seriously. I swear, all Tancredo is missing is the knife.

8:12 Worst move of the night: FNC going back to the overly-earnest college students. Why isn’t some smart producer over there reading VodkaPundit?

8:14 Attention, Griff Jenkins: A TV career? Really? That’s like getting me a job at a rehab center. Well done!

8:17 It could be the third martini, but it seems like Brit Hume’s last question was longer than the Ron Paul’s Giant List of Things I Blame America For. And McCain, known for his admirable anti-torture stance, is just as convoluted in answering. Or so my martinis tell me. This is not McCain’s night.

8:18 “Mitt Romney – can save you up to 15% on auto insurance!”

8:19 Technical error of the night: In the future, all candidates will be Krystal Reid.

8:21 Mitch Huckleson sure sounds tough when it comes to retaliating against terrorists.

8:25 From now on, all those candidates I can’t tell apart will be called “Jim Beam.” But even without knowing their real names, each of them sounds better on terror than any of the Democrats except for Hillary Clinton. I’ll try and keep that in mind, any time it occurs to me what a weak field the Republicans have for 2008.

8:26 Ron Paul: America can so retaliate! Even though we were asking for it!

8:27 Tancerdo: “I’m looking for Jack Bauer.” We all are, buddy. We all are.

8:29 The question is, “How come you’re all so white? Except for Rudy, who is maybe gay?” Who hid Opie and Anthony under Chris Wallace’s hairpiece?

8:31 “Mitt Romney – nobody beats his price on your brand-new Isuzu!”

8:32 It’s over! It’s really over! I’ll have a wrap in just a few.

8:33 But first, I’m going to take some Valium and try to scruff Gripp Jenkins out of my brain.

True Story

May 15th, 2007 - 7:00 pm

Everybody – me, the candidates, the candidates’ spokesmodels, the candidates’ spokesmodels’ spokespersons, and even the candidates’ spokesmodels’ spokespersons’ flaks – bemoan the fact that each candidate will only get nine or ten minutes “exposure” tonight.

Shoot, I was almost got arrested for just a couple minutes worth of exposure one time. These guys should be happy just to walk free tonight.

No, I Wasn’t Kidding

May 15th, 2007 - 6:52 pm

Just the thought of having to drunkblog another one of these high-speed pseudo-debates makes me take to drink. Convenient, yes? Well, maybe – the thing hasn’t started yet, but I’m already down to the dregs* of the first martini. So I’ll be back in a flash with another large, strong (and very well made) cocktail.

If nothing else, I’ll keep myself entertained tonight.

Thanks for Noticing

Will Collier comments:

In all seriousness, I notice the future-readers at ABC haven’t noticed the 10,000-strong FairTax rally that Neal Boortz ginned up, literally across the street from the debate tonight. I’m reasonably sure the people at that one are outnumbering the predicted protesters by at least 500 to one.

But they’re not protesting for leftie causes, so we’ll just ignore them. ‘Kay?

A quick search of Google News (Beta!) yields zero hits on the big rally. I have to admit I don’t really know what Boortz’s FairTax thingy is all about. Of course, it’s not like I have anybody in the MSN to help explain it to me.

What the Hell Was I Drinking?

May 15th, 2007 - 3:59 pm

Apparently, I missed the debate:

The University of South Carolina’s Koger Center for the Arts was the setting for the debate, sponsored by the South Carolina Republican Party and Fox News Channel. The channel’s Brit Hume was moderating.

Underscoring the dominant issues, Americans Against Escalation in Iraq and the South Carolina Young Democrats sponsored a 20-foot mobile billboard to circle the debate site, bearing the phrases: “Republicans, Mission Accomplished?” and “McCain, Mission Accomplished?” And, activists affiliated with Planned Parenthood also were holding an abortion-rights rally outside the hall.

It sure doesn’t feel like Wednesday already. How long was I out?

Way Early

May 15th, 2007 - 2:43 pm

Will I drunkblog tonight’s Republican debate? You bet I will. Although judging by the last event, I’d best start drinking early.

Stupid, Stupid Newspaper Creatures

May 7th, 2007 - 8:11 am

When the final obituaries of big-city newspapers are written (and they’ll be written online), their history could well mark today as one of the signal events in the buggy-whip-ization of newsprint. From today’s Bleat:

[T]hey’ve killed my column, and assigned me to write straight local news stories.

Really.

It probably won’t do James much good with his bosses for me to point this out, but how dumb do you have to be to spike Lileks? You’re talking about the best-connected and very likely best-read online columnist in America, and what do the geniuses at the Star-Tribune do? They demote him and strip the paper of his signature in-print work.

Ideological payback? Maybe. Dinosaur thinking? Obviously. Stupid? Without question.

If the Strib had any institutional sense whatsoever, they’d make James the poobah-in-chief of their online division, and turn him loose. They’d have the best online paper in the country in less than a month. What they’re doing now is an idiotic waste of talent.

Attention, newspaper publishers with a brain: here’s a guy who can bring in a hundred thousand new pairs of eyeballs in the blink of an, er, eye. You say you’re losing money to the web? Well, he knows more about the online world and how to communicate on it than anybody on your staff.

Don’t be as dumb as the Strib. Hire him away before somebody else beats you to the punch.

UPDATE: Tons of reaction in the blogosphere today, as one might imagine. Lots of it is linked at Hugh Hewitt’s site; Hewitt is off on what he calls “a three-hour rant” on his radio show even as I type.

Debate Drunkblogging – LIVE!

May 3rd, 2007 - 6:08 pm

Duncan Hunter talks tough on Iraq, mostly *towards* the Iraqi army. Smart move? Sure. But who the hell is Duncan Hunter?

TECH NOTE: MSNBC’s live feed hasn’t come up yet, and the Politico’s is so slow as to be useless. I might be switching over to the VodkaMacBook and a TV…

UPDATE (6:15pm MDT): For the first time ever, technical problems threaten to kill a drunkblogging event. Back in a few minutes.

6:20pm Man, who’d have ever thought it would be so much work to set up a drunkblog? Also, who are these people on my TV? The banner says MSNBC. The scroll says GOP Presidential Debate. But half these guys are almost mysteries, even to me. And they got personal invites from Nancy Reagan?

6:22pm Tom McCain just lost a great chance to win Colorado by saying “yes” to Tom Tancredo – but without using his name, and then segueing into a canned response about bin Laden. Rookie move for an old guy.

6:25pm Imagine you’re watching Hardball, only Matthews has ten guests instead of one or two. That’s what tonight’s debate has already devolved into. Now imagine that instead of candidates, we had ten knife-wielding spider monkeys jacked up on Mini Thins. That’s where I hope this thing is going.

6:27pm Hey, a guy I think maybe I recognize, in a dark blue suit and red tie, talking about the environment. Which debate are we watching, anyway?

6:28pm Ron Paul is a respectable guy, usually. But he’s looking and sounding more and more like… well, like a nutbag Big-L Libertarian. I should know, I used to be one.

6:30pm Rudi tried to combine respect for Roe v Wade with strict constructionism. While that’s not an impossible straddle, it’s certainly an uncomfortable one – for him and debate viewers.

6:33 Sam Brownback looks like he’s running for President of Debate Club. Just vote for him – for that – and let him have it. I think he’d be happy.

6:38pm It’s not that I don’t have anything to say, it’s that I don’t have anything to say about these candidates right now. Everybody is trying to sound like Reagan, except for Rudi – and he’s trying to sound like Reagan filtered through Goldwater filtered through Roe v. Wade. I just say give everybody a knife already.

6:39pm Quick aside to Mike Huckabee – Dude, Rudi got rid of his combover years ago, mmkay?

6:41pm Every time they cut to him, all I can see is a Yellow Pages ad that reads, “Mitt Romney – Gynecologist to the Stars!”

6:44pm Tom Tancredo is the Colorado local buy done good, and he’s an easy guy to like tonight. Give props to someone who’s main issue is anti-immigration, when mine is so not.

6:46pm Little known fact: Tommy Thompson is actually made from Play-Doh.

6:50pm It’s always boring watching Republicans talk about government ethics. Not because they’re evil – although some of them certainly are. It’s because Republicans generally think that government, by its nature, is going to be corrupt, period, so long as it does big things it ought not to. Meanwhile, the Democrats are just as bad – but twice as upset. More of them, it seems, suffer under the delusion that the government doesn’t automatically suck.

6:51pm Don’t Oxford debates have a rule requiring novelty ties? If not, wouldn’t that be great?

6:53pm Rudi has said “I hate abortion” two or three times already, in those exact words. But does anyone outside of NOW actually love them?

6:55pm Did McCain just break two taboos? I heard him say “guest workers” and “comprehensive reform” in one answer regarding immigration. I don’t follow the immigration debate like I should, so someone tell me if McCain just flubbed it, big-time.

6:57pm Quick aside to Ron Paul – Dude, “country doctor” isn’t an elected position.

6:59pm Nancy want stem cells. At a nice dinner at a nice restaurant years ago, I displayed bad manners and pounded the table, literally, and loudly proclaimed, “Someday, stem cells will bite Republicans on the ass, and they’ll deserve it.” Here it comes, baby.

7:02pm “Mitt Romney – and his dog, Spot!”

7:03pm Matthews just asked a room full of Republicans if there’s a tax they’d like to cut? He has a show called “Hardball”? Really?

7:04pm Which guy was that, just said he’d cut the AMT? I’m voting for that guy.

7:06pm No one is going to miss me for two minutes if I go refill my martini. So if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go refill my martini.

7:12pm “Mitt Romney – offers low payments for for your new veneers.”

7:13pm Even when Rudi is answering an easy question (Shia vs Sunni) that he knows, he sounds uncertain. And he was a prosecutor? Bad sign.

7:14pm Ditto my last comment, only more so. Rudi could have recited some great stump speech lines, and instead he stumbled.

7:16pm My anti-AMT guy sounds an awful lot like John Edwards on jobs and outsourcing. Buh-bye, VodkaPundit vote.

7:18pm Finally, Rudi sounds like he’s on his game. Problem is, he’s talking about a kind of national ID card. There are lots of reasons those won’t work, however, so color me (still) unimpressed.

7:20pm You know who Tancredo reminds me of? That TV character actor who was everywhere during the ’70s and ’80s. Lots of MASH appearances, I think. Can’t remember his name. I’ll look it up later. In the meantime, I keep expecting him to crack a broad smile and a bad joke, followed by a small hit of laugh-track.

7:22pm Has one of these guys just once used the word “Democrat”?

7:24pm When most of these guys talk about Terri Schiavo, it reminds me what I like least about the Republican party, especially its current incarnation as the *other* party of big government.

7:25pm “Mitt Romney – with the weather, tonight on the News at Nine!”

7:27pm Matthews just asked a room full of Republicans if they hate Hillary? He has a show called “Hardball”? Really?

7:31pm Quick aside to Chris Matthews – Dude, that silibant S of yours is brutal enough to actually drown your Teleprompter guy. Relax already.

7:32pm “KZ” comments, “I think Fred Thompson is winning.” Dude, you just won the debate with that line.

Cheers, kids. I’ll post a wrap in a few.

Have at it, kids.

Getting Started II

May 3rd, 2007 - 5:55 pm

Melissa has the baby and, more importantly, I have a cocktail. And ten windows running just debate stuff on the VodkaMac screen. (I knew I shoulda sprung for the VodkaMac Pro with a 30″ monitor.)

I guess the big question tonight is, how much is this going to suck? Worse then the Democrats last week? Is that even possible? Sit back, suck one down, and let’s find out.

Getting Started

May 3rd, 2007 - 5:29 pm

MSNBC‘s debate preview invoked the name, Reagan, by my count, over eight hundred thousand times in under six minutes. This beats the previous record of 798,112, set two weeks ago by Rudi Guiliani during an eight minute pep talk at the Bakersfield, CA Kiwanis club.

Seriously, if you click the link above you can find the same preview I did, which really does go overboard with the whole Reagan thing. Ten candidates debating tonight, and that’s all MSNBC has to talk about? Let’s hope Chris Matthews does better.

May 2nd, 2007 - 4:50 pm

A brand-new blog-type thing from Patrick Ruffini called “We Win, They lose.” How can that suck?

I’m a Blu-Ray viewer, so what the hell.
