Warhol Cheapskate

warholmarilyn (2k image)Gonna take the train up to see the Warhol exhibit at MOCA. It's free today from 5 to 8. I guess this is the only way to see Warhol. I don't think I would pay. I like his ideas but staring at a bunch of giant soup cans and going: "yeah man, like groovy" doesn't wag me. But it should at least be mildly interesting.

I want to bring my mp3 walkman. I guess I'll have to leave it in Michael's car. They don't want you bringing squat into the museum.

Install Diary

redhat (1k image)Installing Redhat rather than the usual Mandrake because there is an RPM installer to replace the kernel with a low latency one. Using the RPM sounds good to me. Besides, I've never done a Redhat install. I like these parts from the Audio Quality Howto:

"...Linux is now (with a patched 2.2 or 2.4 kernel) capable of totally reliable, rock-solid audio performance with NO dropouts and VERY low latency, even better than BeOS which was specifically designed for multimedia!"

"...If you meet ALL these conditions, you will get a rock-solid realtime behavior, where a Windoze user can only dream of..."

Hey, maybe this IS a good idea...


Historic Occasion

Was just looking at Brenda's art work again and realized that it's not one rope, it's two ropes that follow each other. LOL. I already knew the piece was a commentary on relationships. Funny how you think you see everything that's there and then you look again and see something else. Hmm. Wouldn't "art" [and life] be disappointing if it wasn't like that?
I'm installing Linux on my DJ machine while I'm making this post. Who knows, maybe I'll be back to Windows pretty quick. This could be it though. No more Windows machines around here...

I guess saying I switched from Windows to Linux while still having a Windows machine around is kind of like saying you're a vegetarian and still eating fish or chicken. A lot of people do that btw. Or it's like saying that you quit smoking cause you only have x number of cigarettes per day, or per week. Yeah, ok.

So now I have to recompile my kernel to reduce the latency--so it doesn't skip when I'm dj'ing. I wouldn't have to do that if I just stuck with Windows. But on the other hand... how would you do that on windows? LOL. Like Eric S. Raymond says: "trying to hack with Windows or Mac is like trying to learn to dance wearing a body cast".
I checked the poll the other day and found only one vote. Whoever it was had selected "Pabst Blue Ribbon". Gave me a good laugh cause with one vote it's at 100% and very phalic looking, thus reminding me of the line from "Blue Velvet": "fuck that shit! Pabst Blue Ribbon!"
