Rock and Roll wrapping paper ... if it feels right .... how could it be wrong.

Pretty much.


John Coltrane asked Miles Davis's advice on how to end a solo because Trane was having difficulty finding a place to end. Miles answered in his raspy whisper, "Take the fucking horn out your mouth."

Generative Sequence
be liked, cocreate experiences, catalyze generative closure in the audience

One of the things I liked the most with Miles Davis, he knew how to play really few notes when needed, and play a whole lot of notes, when needed.

The many notes to remind us of our own virtuosity, the few notes so as to catalyze deep meaning.

This is just my personal preference of course. If someome is brought to Nirvana via Bieber, that's ok as well.

"Shorter discourse on the internet since I can remember:

Credentialed Elite: People who disagree with me cannot even be said to have the boorish manner of Yalies.

The rest of us: Oh fuck off you stupid git.

Credentialed Elite: I am horrified at your opposition to civilized discourse."

Shorter. No $ + time equals less entertainment profit.


"What if the 1990s were a final apex decade of a leisure-oriented, consumer-driven society? The last time a middle-class existed and was working to earn more time at home, more time to themselves, more time to consume culture? The last time there was enough money (fueled by debt) to support the mass consumption of leisure? What if piracy is the canary in the coal mine for the growth of income inequity and the collapse of white-collar labor? What if no one has the time to really consume more than a small fraction of even the diminished current output of the media industries, because they’re working longer hours just to keep from getting fired or even just to make ends barely meet?"

This is an interesting idea but I don't think it holds through. My personal experience is that people I know who live poverty level (higher than homeless but lower than what we'd call middle class) will spend money they don't really have on consuming leisure activities that help them escape from the reality of their stressful lives. It is easier to find $20 for movies (and smuggle in snacks from home) than it is to find $300 for the latest ipod.

On the other hand, I think many middle class consumers have become more educated and frugal-minded.  If I can get a better viewing experience in my home (with my flat screen HDTV with awesome audio) watching a movie on Netflix or Amazon Prime or even On-Demand cable... what encourages me to spend $50 to see the movie on big screen with my sweetie (because WE aren't likely to smuggle in drinks, etc...)? 

Also, if I can buy a movie to watch forever and ever on my iPad, tablet, or smart phone for around $12 - $20 as a digital file that I can stream to my television or my friend's television, why would I pay extra to own the DVD? 

I think industry people need to understand that expecting consumers to support their "business as usual" ways of doing business when technology has made that unnecessary is a ridiculous mindset. Industry has to adapt...  blaming piracy for falling profits is just an excuse for trying to uphold an antiquated system and that can only work for so long...

If games are fun, yes. If games are business that is the wrong metric.

+Jason K Great share. +John Kellden,  I guess McLuhan saw the world through this lens way back when, eh? It is actually a bit scary how powerful the manipulative pull is of this piece. So the question becomes in service to and for what purpose is that power used; and more immediately, how critical it is in service to our emerging goals for this community, for us to incorporate this dimension of storytelling in our outputs and outward facing communications/expressions of the community.

Shorter.

There is no one form or correct way to design a type of game. Anyone who obsesses on the prefect version of a game is either tedious to the point you can ignore or does not know what they are talking about.

"How humans make decisions in non-cooperative strategic interactions is a challenging question. For the fundamental model system of Rock-Paper-Scissors (RPS) game, classic game theory of infinite rationality predicts the Nash equilibrium (NE) state with every player randomizing her choices to avoid being exploited, while evolutionary game theory of bounded rationality in general predicts persistent cyclic motions, especially for finite populations. However, as empirical studies on human subjects have been relatively sparse, it is still a controversial issue as to which theoretical framework is more appropriate to describe decision making of human subjects. Here we observe population-level cyclic motions in a laboratory experiment of the discrete-time iterated RPS game under the traditional random pairwise-matching protocol."

When your marketing department hails from Derpistan.


I will never get over how hilarious it is EVERY time when a company, public service, whatever comes up with a hashtag, and expects the response to be positive because they will it so.

Especially controversial groups like the NYPD.


my former college professor +Anthony Rotolo is dead on. When you open yourself up in a public forum you should expect the public to act and deal with accordingly. it's not like people have actual grievances.
The NYPD's effort to use Twitter to elicit photos of positive NYPD-public interactions backfired on Tuesday, when several users instead posted photos of police brutality to the suggested hashtag #myNYPD.

The natural end path of celebrity culture.

A future world where you can get designer diseases from celebrities, obsession with stars, and meat harvested from the cells of celebrities? Why yes this is  +Toxic Tartary.

And yes, bootleg down market options are available where found.


I am hoping to get some plastic surgery down below and feel like Napoleon. Recent DNA research has show his commander was smaller then his ambitions......
