deconstructing novel to screen plot
slavezombie
I picked up the book for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy by John le Carré because I've watched the film so many times, I'm curious how much better the novel is going to be if I manage to read it. So far, I'm just shocked at the way the story begins compared to the movie. In the story, it seems like the main character is not George Smiley, but Jim Prideaux, AND the scene where he appears to be teaching at a school for k-12 children, in act two, is the way the story begins. The owl in the chimney, the rainy day when he arrives at the school hauling a trailer, Bill Roach, the new boy who takes intrest in Jim. All this is covered in the first 14 pages of the book, and the screenplay doesn't do it justice as Jim Prideaux almost appears to become the heroic fascination of a friendless new boy in a strange school who may or may not have invented the entire plot in his head.

We'll see, however, as I am hooked. For instance, in act one of the movie, there is a scene where Jim meets his contact in Budapest. They drink espressos at a café. The subject of goulash is mentioned, but the movie never connects that with the nicknames the children from the school where Jim is teaching were bouncing back and forth until they settle on Rhino for their new substitute teacher. For that matter, the movie doesn't acknowledge the nickname Jim comes up with for Bill, "Jumbo".

President Obama Is Waging a War on Hackers | WIRED
https://www.wired.com/2015/01/president-obama-waging-war-hackers/

In next week’s State of the Union address, President Obama will propose new laws against hacking that could make either retweeting or clicking on the above (fictional) link illegal. The new laws make it a felony to intentionally access unauthorized information even if it’s been posted to a public website. The new laws make it a felony to traffic in information like passwords, where “trafficking” includes posting a link.

You might assume that things would never become that bad, but it’s already happening even with the current laws. Prosecutors went after Andrew “weev” Auernheimer for downloading a customer list AT&T negligently made public. They prosecuted Barrett Brown for copying a URL to the Stratfor hack from one chatroom to another. A single click is all it takes. Prosecutors went after the PayPal-14 for clicking on a single link they knew would flood PayPal’s site with traffic. The proposed changes make such prosecutions much easier.

Robert Graham is an inventor of cybersecurity technologies. He is CEO of Errata Security. This article first appeared on Errata’s blog.


Even if you don’t do any of this, you can still be guilty if you hang around with people who do. Obama proposes upgrading hacking to a “racketeering” offense, means you can be guilty of being a hacker by simply acting like a hacker (without otherwise committing a specific crime). Hanging out in an IRC chat room giving advice to people now makes you a member of a “criminal enterprise”, allowing the FBI to sweep in and confiscate all your assets without charging you with a crime. If you innocently clicked on the link above, and think you can defend yourself in court, prosecutors can still use the 20-year sentence of a racketeering charge in order to force you to plea bargain down to a 1-year sentence for hacking. (Civil libertarians hate the police-state nature of racketeering laws).

Obama’s proposals come from a feeling in Washington D.C. that more needs to be done about hacking in response to massive data breaches of the last couple years. But they are blunt political solutions which reflect no technical understanding of the problem.

Most hacking is international and anonymous. They can’t catch the perpetrators no matter how much they criminalize the activities. This War on Hackers is likely to be no more effective than the War on Drugs, where after three decades the prison population has sky rocketed from 0.1% of the population to a staggering 1%. With 5% the world’s population, we have 25 percent of the world’s prisoners—and this has done nothing to stop drugs. Likewise, while Obama’s new laws will dramatically increase hacking prosecutions, they’ll be of largely innocent people rather than the real hackers that matter.

Internet innovation happens by trying things first then asking for permission later. Obama’s law will change that. For example, a search engine like Google downloads a copy of every website in order to create a search “index”. This sort of thing is grandfathered in, but if “copying the entire website” were a new idea, it would be something made illegal by the new laws. Such copies knowingly get information that website owners don’t intend to make public. Similarly, had hacking laws been around in the 1980s, the founders of Apple might’ve still been in jail today, serving out long sentences for trafficking in illegal access devices.

The most important innovators this law would affect are the cybersecurity professionals that protect the Internet. If you cared about things such as “national security” and “cyberterrorism”, then this should be your biggest fear. Because of our knowledge, we do innocent things that look to outsiders like “hacking”. Protecting computers often means attacking them. The more you crack down on hackers, the more of a chilling effect you create in our profession. This creates an open-door for nation-state hackers and the real cybercriminals.

Along with its Hacking Prohibition law, Obama is also proposing a massive Internet Surveillance law. Companies currently monitor their networks, using cybersecurity products like firewalls, IPSs, and anti-virus. Obama wants to strong-arm companies into sharing that information with the government, creating a virtualized or “cloud” surveillance system.

In short, President Obama’s War on Hackers is a bad thing, creating a Cyber Police State. The current laws already overcriminalize innocent actions and allow surveillance of innocent people. We need to roll those laws back, not extend them.

My friends say trolling is faux

But when I introduce myself, I always forget who I am

The cool kids use the slang term 'intro'

And all it does is confuse me over whether trolling is in.

Ich tu dir weh
slavezombie

Ich tu dir weh lyrics + English translation (Version #1)
http://lyricstranslate.com/en/ich-tu-dir-weh-i-hurt-you.html

Ich tu dir weh

Nur für mich bist du am Leben
Ich steck dir Orden ins Gesicht
Du bist mir ganz und gar ergeben
Du liebst mich denn ich lieb dich nicht
Du blutest für mein Seelenheil
Ein kleiner Schnitt und du wirst geil
Der Körper schon total entstellt
Egal erlaubt ist was gefällt
Ich tu dir weh
Tut mir nicht leid
Das tut dir gut
Hör wie es schreit
Bei dir habe ich die Wahl der Qual
Stacheldraht im Harnkanal
Leg dein Fleisch in Salz und Eiter
Erst stirbst du doch dann lebst du weiter
Bisse Tritte harte Schläge
Nadeln Zangen stumpfe Säge
Wünsch dir was ich sag nicht nein
Und führ dir Nagetiere ein
Ich tu dir weh
Tut mir nicht leid
Das tut dir gut
Hör wie es schreit
Du bist das Schiff ich der Kapitän
Wohin soll denn die Reise gehen
Ich seh im Spiegel dein Gesicht
Du liebst mich denn ich lieb dich nicht
Ich tu dir weh
Tut mir nicht leid
Das tut dir gut
Hör wie es schreit

I Hurt You

Versions: #1#2
You live only for me
I stick medals into your face
You are entirely devoted to me
You love me because I don't love you
You bleed for my salvation
A little cut and you're turned on
The body already completely disfigured
It doesn't matter, whatever pleases is allowed
I hurt you
I'm not sorry
It's good for you
Hear how it screams
With you I have the choice of torment
Barbed wire in the urethral tract
Throw your flesh in salt and pus
At first you die, but then you live more
Bites, kicks, hard blows
Needles, pliers, a blunt saw
What you wish, I don't say no
And insert rodents into you
I hurt you
I'm not sorry
It's good for you
Hear how it screams
You are the ship, I'm the captain
Where should this journey go?
I see your face in the mirror
You love me because I don't love you
I hurt you
I'm not sorry
It's good for you
Hear how it screams

Something big, something small would have to happen before I try to sketch another editorial cartoon
slavezombie

I enjoy the flow of journal updates ursulav makes on her blog and marveled at the way she composes her colorful collages of photos, doodles, scribbles and content into a really interesting leather-bound journal/diary style. I squandered everywhere for information about what software she used to compose her digital art. I read the source code for clues, scoured the web for other social media accts that belonged to her. Then finally I found a FAQ section of her website where she reveals what she uses to create her compositions.

I like Painter7, a Wacom Intuos 2 4 x 5 tablet, and occasionally Photoshop for layout and printing.

While I would love to save up for some of the toys she uses, at the moment I'll have to make do as I already invested enough on digital doodads than I have time to play with while blogging.

Needless to say, her art was something I strive to achieve in my own blog when I type scenes in screenplay format using a manual typewriter, then scan and upload into the my blog I worked painstakingly hard to tweak the stylesheet to give the impression of facsimile documents. I mean the whole reason I began typing my blog updates on paper is because I could not find a fool proof way to make my css code replicate all the tab stops and indentations a screenplay contains.

Supplies include unboxing my new phoneCollapse )

I'm not one to create vlogs of unboxing stuff. I'm just not that organized and doing so would mean clearing off all the junk on my drafting table, typing desk, house. Anyway, when I went to the phone shop to pick up my new iPhone 7plus, they pretty much unboxed it for me. It just would've been weird to take the Action Cam and ask them if it would be okay to record the whole thing. I've been comparing my Samsung Note 5 with it and evaluating all the apps that I'm going to want to have installed on the new phone before I get rid of the Note; but wait! This Note 5 has that neat writing feature with the stencil-like digital pen which makes signing, doodling, brainstorming, handwriting all that much more effective. It beats drawing with your finger on the iPhone. So what I'm thinking is, I'm going to record a step-by-step process list the way I did for the newsletter I work on for Harley Davidson. I was having a hard time remembering how to export my nwsltr while compressing images and graphics to meet the file size limitations I'm given. I'll do the same thing for the process of creating ursulav style digital comps.

I've thought of doing them all on hard copy. Typing whatever I happen to be ranting about on that day, then stapling pictures taken and printed with the Polaroid Zip or the lomo instant camera. However, I tried that and it's not as effective as keeping my graphics files digitally and incorporating them that way onto the page.

What I'm striving for, besides increasing my livejournal popularity, is something I can refer to later for index card positioning in the ongoing screenplay project tmtwngm (the movie that will never get made) because, I could give a rat's ass who buys my story when the current status quo is writing the great American banned book and/or risque content.

Iguana eats italian veggies
slavezombie

Yesterday I had tried to film feeding time with Mildred on my http://www.ustream.tv/channel/22741386 account, but I really don't know what I'm doing when I use the Action Cam for live streaming. I would like to livestream with it on Periscope but for now I'm just going to concentrate on vlogging my iguana's feeding time with the ustream server since it's the only way I've managed to make headway following the how-to videos

Incidentally, after I tried live streaming for the first time (some time last month), I wasn't able to program the HDR-AZ1 so that it simply records footage to the memory chip. I suppose I can dig up some how-to videos on doing that, but I'm even having a hard time erasing the videos from my trip to Sturgis last year. Or was that two years ago? Recalling what the Sony salesman advised when downloading videos to the computer, he said that I should try to download it from the camera itself. In other words, not to try to remove the microSD card and use an external drive to access the footage because "that would corrupt the memory chip." He wasn't kidding. Now I'm worries whether I'll have to buy another chip because this one 64GB is unresponsive to attempts at erasing.

I've been called to jury duty and am scheduled for the week of Super Tuesday. So, today at work I untied my hair from my pony tail and suffered the consequence as it frizzed out. I guess I'm going to make it a trademark of mine whenever I show up to the courtrooms like this. I don't think anybody else does it, and don't get me wrong, it is very embarrassing. I'm hoping that the future of hair styles will find this natually curly look acceptable one day and any pictures that I may appear in this way will strike a thought of time travel in people.

road rage
slavezombie

Last night I went out for fast food. I was crossing the street when I encountered the most obnoxious asshole driver who can only be described as s.b. who most likely knew who I was (in a stalking sorta way) and proceeded to carelessly roll over the crosswalk where I was crossing the street. If ur familiar with rolling stops at stop signs... BUT this classic asshole was stopped at a red light and he missed hitting me by inches.

He had a white car and was wearing headphones. I even made a gesture with my hands "wtf? I'm walking here", but this guy was in a zoned out and looked right thru me. He had a slight resemblance to my crazy coworker's ex-husband.
