Happy Birfday to Us 

On :54W .:DataWhat?:. turned one year old.

To commemorate this event, I'm going to ditch my Yahoo mail account and shift over to a Gmail account.

The e-mail is now:
DataWhat@gmail.com


During the whole Tsunami coverage phase that the site went through, I scooped up a whole crapload of spam (everyone involved is quite content with my penis size, thank you very much, and while it is flattering to recieve all those e-mails from the deposed king of Nigeria, I'm not giving you my bank account information...so, good day to you sir) so we're starting afresh.

Who knows, maybe next year we'll go old-school and get a Juno account.

fried pizza shooters and flair at Chalotchkie Malone's 



Whoa. I just saw Tadd Mullinix outside Thanos today (looking preeee-cisely like Travis Bickle from Taxi Driver) and now I just heard the Dabrye song "Hyped-Up Plus Tax" in a Motorola ad on the televizzle.
See the ad and jam out to the tune here .

LOL
man I think these are funny...

I thought the innernet struck prevert gold today when someone sent me a link to Jenna Bush undressing on the beach.
Turns out it's a a hoax, but that doesn't stop me from dreamin'...oh and if any female DataWhat patrons can explain to me what is happening in foto 5, I'd really appreciate it. What in the world is happening down there?

::


Oh, and Rob Thomas' record debuted at no.1 on Billboard.

#1. Goddamn, that's a lot of white people buying albums. You know they all bought it and then ate a big dinner of fried pizza shooters and flair at Chalotchkie Malone's to celebrate. "Honey, finish your francheezie! 'According to Jim' starts in 10 minutes, and after that I'll require you to perform during the first minute of Rob Thomas' new solo joint!"
Rant provided by a bitter bitter man who wites his e-mails in a little little font.

.:DataWTF?:. 



I was talking to somebody on the South Side of the building about a program that had stopped running correctly, and when he looked at it he said he was surprised that it ever ran at all because the way it was coded, it should had never worked in the first place.

Buddy, this site's for you. Pretty dork-specific, but basically it gives daily examples of horrible, redundant, and contradictory code.

Example of a typical comment:

My favorite part is the fact that he's doing a do loop instead of a
while so he has to check for an empty list inside (why he didn't just
check it before entering the loop is another WTF). If he just
changed that around to:

while (!IsListEmpty(List))

then he wouldn't need

if (discoveredEntry)
goto DoNextListItem;
else
break;


Of course the real WTF here is the goto since all it serves to do is jump him past his own ASSERT!

OK, I know at least three of you think that is funny.

Wal-Mart Offers Customized CDs

Wal-Mart has introduced an online custom CD burning service that allows customers to buy tracks without downloading them to a computer.

Users select and buy the tracks they want, which Wal-Mart will then burn to a personalized CD. The service charges $4.62 for the first three songs, and 88 cents for each additional song, plus $1.97 for shipping. Based on those fees, a 14-track CD would cost $16.27.

The new service is positioned for consumers who do not have CD burners or broadband Internet access, but who still want to take advantage of the flexibility that digital music provides.

Awesome! There are some Harry Nilsson records and an old Varnaline EP I wanna get! Oh, what's that? You guys only have the rights to the Universal catalog and Karaoke tracks from Sybersound? Uh...never mind...

Also, now apparently you can get married at Wal-Mart.
Sorry, white trash only.

Nathan: Not very.

Adam: Now, if it was long passages, there were some guys -- like Alan (Tudyk) – who had a lot more trouble with it.

Nathan: Alan couldn’t do it.

Adam: Jane didn’t have too much Chinese. It was like a “screw you” here and a “humpin’ dog” there . . .

Nathan: Dong ma.

Adam: Dong ma, yeah. There were some other characters that had more of it,but it didn’t affect me.

Nathan: I had a lot of trouble saying, “The explosive diarrhea of an elephant.”

"My memory declines sharply after Jack White bought me that shot of whiskey" - Steve Bekkala 



I do like that logo

Hoo, golly. Well, Friday night started out innocently enough. Hanging out with Scott McClintock (GLMS) and his cute girlfriend and his equally cute sister, eating garlic fries and drinking Pabst at Jacoby's (PBR downstairs, Strohs upstairs..I don't make the rules, I just enforce 'em). Then Jamie and Greg Lakes Myth Society showed up and we watched America's Funniest Home Videos without the sound. The highlight was this far-off shot of a guy hang-gliding and the text "[Vomiting]...[Vomiting]" repeating in the closed-captioning. Tim showed up with a cold handshake after watching the first three innings of the Tigers game at the CoPa.

When the sound guy arrived, I went upstairs to see if I could help him. He spouted "Unless you know how all of this stuff goes together, no. At this point, it would take me longer to show you how it all works, and frankly I don't have the time." Not "No, man, it's cool" or "Nah, I got it." It was all cocky sound-guy attitude. Bleh. Strike 1.

MCRMCMC

Tenley played a smart angular set of British influenced indie pop. We played with these guys at Havilland's CD release party a year ago and I have to say that they were really spectacular this weekend. Really smart and energetic, great guitar tones, and they had this one song that my brain remembers as "This is the chorus, sing it 'til your lungs are raw" (or "Lungs are long" as Greg heard it and promised to steal for an upcoming song).

At some point the rest of the 'Sleepers and Mr. Gary came back from the Paul Westerberg show. Apparently Paul got really drunk which Porchsleeper took as a cue as to how they should act for the rest of the evening (or potentially their lives). Mr. Gary sounded like a frog. He kept saying "Whoooooo!" but nobody could hear him. Derek spent more time talking about the hairy yam-sack on the guy who mooned the Westerberg crowd than the actual show. Steve said "I totally understand Paul Westerberg now because I've been in his band for a year and a half."

Molly Jean played and proved that she knows more chords that I do. Somebody said "a cross between Liz Phair and Marianne Faithful" which I thought was really good.

Sleepin' when we shoulda been buyin'

We set up next and it got really blurry really fast. Mike Houseman bought us beers and Brian was drinking whiskey-and-whiskeys. My bass was all the way across the stage, so I couldn't feel it thumping against my leg, I could only feel Brian thumping against my leg. Derek's mic kept feeding back, which was problematic, but no diva tantrums from the Sleeper. We played Mott The Hoople's "All the Young Dudes" with Stirling singing the lead and backing vocals by Fido, Tim, and Scott of GLMS. Stirling said he was having a shitty day, but he totally pulled it off like the rockist that he is. There were some brown notes, but KvB said that we hit 98% of them right, which is still an "A" in my ledger. At some point we stopped. It was probably for the best. Afterwards, Steve Motrin from The Fluoride Program asked "What was that one song you played?" and I said "All The Young Dudes by Mott the Hoople" and he squinted and said "Mock the who???" and I said "Yeah."

All the old dudes  plus Steve & Tim All the old dudes  plus Steve & Tim All the old dudes plus Steve & Tim

Jack White showed up to see Loretta Lucas play, but Brian speculates that he may just show up any time anyone named "Loretta" is playing:

"Hey! Loretta is playing at Jacoby's!"
"Uh, Jack? You know that's not Loretta Lynn, right?"
"C'mon guys! Loretta's playing!"
"sigh..."

This Loretta played a quiet set of warm country like Dusty Springfield used to do, and her band was tight (and cute...all of 'em). At this point Johnny Loftus accused me of being stoned. This I neither confirmed or denied. (for the record, I was high on life. Crack is whack).

Loretty

Finally Great Lakes MILF Society went on and battled through a murky PA and several bottles of Strohs to put on a blistering set of songs that I love. This band is smart. Smarter than all the other bands ever. The sound on stage was so bad they had the sound guy turn off the monitors altogether. At one point during a Bowie cover, the vocals went out completely through the PA. Strikes two and three.

Greg, Tim. Tim, Greg.

Doug Coombe took pictures, Grambo, Peebs, and Damore drank beers and said "Schmeers." Big Matt had a haircut and a grin, Jessica smiled the whole time, and Ryan & Mac looked happy.

At the end of the night, the sound guy got pissed at somebody and threw a beer bottle at the stage which shattered and blasted beer and glass all over Derek's amp. Strike too many.

Somehow we got everything into the van (including Brian, against our better judgement), hit the White Castle on Woodward (sack of ten, not a crave case, although last time we did find out that acrave case and three waters comes out to be $1972, which rocks), and made it home in a sleeting rain at 5 in the morning.

Every time we unload the van I think of the Prime Ministers song "Rock and Roll Wife" which starts out with the lines "Late Thursday night early Friday morning, whichever you prefer/We'll pull into our driveway/ Under the stars we'll unload guitars both solid and half-asleep/Our ears will still be ringing." which is exactly like it really is.


::


The panel on Music and Teh Innarnet went really well. Standing room only, I'd guess maybe 80 people total (ten rows of six, plus people standing on the sides, I didn't crunch the numbers). Everybody on the panel pretended to be smart, and everybody in the audience pretended to care what we were saying. I'll be up there with Ryan was quiet but well-informed, Grambo was knowledgable and sharp, Rob was passionate, Sam was eloquent, I feel like I blathered too much, but when we're talking about the Data I get all excited. Gary & Johnny, just so you know: The guy sitting next to you had to fart really bad the whole time but held back out of respect. Big Matt did not escape the same fate as I blasted one loudly in the elevator while the three of us where in there. One of the elevators stopped working altogether later and I can only imagine it was my fault.

.:DataWhat?:. Final Analysis Of The Motor City Music Conference:


dot We picked up our badges without a hitch, and I even got my panelist badge in with my regular band badge.

dot The Fluoride Program's show at the Old Shillelagh didn't have a sound guy, but the guys were able to get it sounding good.

dot My guys got into the Westerberg show at St. Andrews without a hitch (and without having to pay).

dot The MCR showcases did really well (Wednesday: Kid Rock Night, Thursday: Kirk Gibson Night, Friday: Jack White Night, I dunno who showed up Saturday, but I can only guess it was Kwame).

dot We had a blast (but I'd be willing to bet that the team from MotorCityRocks had more to do with the smoothness of our show than the festival's organizers did).

dot Our sound guy was kind of a stressed out jerk. ("Your band is too loud." ...hey listen, I'm not gonna tell you how to do sound, don't tell my band how to do rock and roll.)

dot The panel was well received and I think informative, and there were a lot more people who got really involved than I thought there would be.

dot The Trade Show was pretty lame (think 100 booths from hip-hop labels all blasting their recordings on huge PAs all lined up right next to eachother...and a skateboarding ramp).

dot The shows at Ford Field Friday kinda fizzled due to poor scheduling, lack of parking, and most importantly, lack of alcohol. Hopefully somebody else will report on that, 'cause I really don't know.

dot I heard that one venue cancelled all live music at their location, but the folks in charge of the conference wouldn't post anything on the site because it would look like poor planning and reflect badly on them.

dot Overall, from my immediate experiences, it went off without a hitch, but again, I only involved myself with MotorCityRocks events, and I think that has a whole world to do with it.

I swear to God I'm TRYING to look stupid in this picture
See you next year!


Thanks for the photos Mr. Gary and Big Matt
Thanks for everything else Ryan

Well, Danny rapped all night about his suicide, 



MCRMCMC

BrianSleeper reporting on the launch of the Motor City Music Conference last night:

we ended up stopping by jacoby's after the paybacks show to steal beers from ryan and gary. so we get up there and kid rock is up there with his whole posse which included the hottest little russian girl i've ever seen and that ty stone guy that opened up for us at jacoby's that one time. well before too long, kid organizes some kind of 8 Mile-esque 'sing off' between ty and some drunk guy (not me, different drunk guy). they tried to sing a bunch of motown stuff that neither one of them seemed to know very well. pretty soon stirling is standing on a table with kid rock singing some hank jr. song. sometime after 3:30 the everybody stumbled out of the bar.

surreal


We're playing there Friday Night, and we've promised that we would play Mott The Hoople's "All the Young Dudes" with Stirling singing the lead and backing vocals by Great Lakes Myth Society.

Jesus Christ, people, if that doesn't have provide the festival's greatest possible opportunity for potential catastrophe or pure rock and roll shining awesomeness, I don't know what does.

See you there.

::


Also - don't forget: on Saturday at 2:30 pm at the Cobo Center, I'm part of a panel discussion on Music and the innerweb (for some reason). I'll be up there with Ryan Sult (Motorcityrocks.com), Mark Graham (Whatevs.org), Rob Theakston (Team Dorkwave), and Sam Valenti IV (Ghostly International), and if nobody shows up we'll just end up playing Pictionary which sucks 'cause Grambo is so good at it he'll waste the rest of us.
Plus, MatRog hooked me up with a bunch of AMG CDs, books and magnets to hand out, so I'll be sure to win the coveted "Favorite Panelist" award.

Ooh, Christ is this spooky. Some kid stole the Professor's laptop to try and get the final exam key off of it and got in a little deeper than he intended. he said this at a recent lecture, directed at the kid who took it (since they were tracking him down via the laptop's wireless card anyway):

"I'm not particularly concerned about the computer. But the thief, who thought he was only stealing an exam, is presently - we think - is probably still in possession of three kinds of data, any one of which can send this man, this young boy, actually, to federal prison. Not a good place for a young boy to be.

You are in possession of data from a hundred million dollar trial, sponsored by the NIH, for which I'm a consultant. This involves some of the largest companies on the planet, the NIH investigates these things through the FBI, they have been notified about this problem.

You are in possession of trade secrets from a Fortune 1000 biotech company, the largest one in the country, which I consult for. The Federal Trade Communication is very interested in this. Federal Marshals are the people who handle that.

You are in possession of proprietary data from a pre-public company planning an IPO. The Securities and Exchange Commission is very interested in this and I don't even know what branch of law enforcement they use."

Also happening at the Motor City Music Conference on Saturday April 23rd at 2:30 pm, I'm part of a panel discussion on Music and the innerweb (for some reason). I'll be up there with Ryan Sult (Motorcityrocks.com), Mark Graham (Whatevs.org), Rob Theakston (Team Dorkwave), and Sam Valenti IV (Ghostly International), and none of it made any sense until I started thinking about it: We're just like The A-Team!

Ryan Sult as John "Hannibal" Smith
Charismatic leader, mastermind, loves it when a plan comes together

Rob Theakston as B.A. Baracus
Tough on the outside, tender on the inside. Does all the heavy lifting, pities the fool.

Sam Valenti as Templeton "Faceman" Peck
Good looking, smooth con man, charming with the ladies.

Uncle Grambo as H.M. Murdock
A little bit crazy, but always ends up flying in to save the day.

and finally,

Zac Johnson as Amy Allen
Bewildered reporter, doesn't really know what the job is, but looks darned good in a pencil skirt and a kicky set of heels.


We'll be discussing how bands can present themselves to labels and a perspective audience using websites, blogs, MySpace communities, e-mail lists, online distributors, MP3s and whatever other buzzwords we can come up with.


Cobo Event Center Room 02-41
Saturday April 23rd at 2:30 pm

Pope Brackets 



I really wish somebody would come up with a series of brackets like the NCAA basketball finals, but with the names of potential Popes on the brackets. You could start with real candidates at the top and then get stupid like "Father Guido Sarducci" or or "Cardinal Jimmie Walker" or "Cardinal Ozzie Smith"

Assignments for the DataWhat faithful: Come up with a list of Good Pope names. Then I'll ask Goody or Chris to photoshop up a good brackets list and we'll put 'em in there.
heh..Cardinal Ozzie Smith...

Hey Sara, do people in advertising ever rip off other people's ideas?
Kinda seems like they do.

I probably shouldn't find these as interesting as I do, but these Tricks of the Trade are nifty.

Grave Digger
A vault will lay square in a grave even if the floor of the hole isn't level, but the empty space under the vault will cause the plot to settle unevenly over time. Dig the grave to the length of your shovel, use the shovel against the sides of the grave to check that the hole is the same depth all around, and you wont have to reset a crooked headstone next season.

If you don't have a cock stamp, I'm not interested. 



I've really been into these "Search Tickers" lately. They display what people are looking up on different search engines in realtime.

This girl at the office party gets a little tipsy on cheap champagne and starts telling the videocamera exactly what she thinks of her boss while he's standing right behind her.
Lumbergh!!!

This has been floating around for a while but I hadn't heard it 'til tonight. This guy witnesses a little fender bender while on the phone to his boss, then recounts in hilarious detail these four old ladies beat the crap out of the driver. (MP3)
It sounds like it could be a prank but Snopes gives some evidence saying it's true.
