badideas 2013

Bad ideas, brain farts, no filter, 2013

sayit-- (greeting card captions)
  • There is instructables for everything, cloths shoes bags, and no shortage of badideas.
  • Detesting the mainstream since 5min ago.
  • random captions: spam terror network, inner west spammer, take that inner west, i only use fine spam, textured 3d lard, finest spam, ok spam, im a giver but also a taker, eco brown, inner west inspector, permission retained, inner west meh, not asking for permission since 2013, inner west bot seeking gender neutral bot, the denier, self absorbed
  • Commuters are just re-positioning themselves to process the next task of course.
  • Chase budgets not jobs
  • When did clam shell phones become ironic?
  • Look, I've assimilated all your shit, and you don't get my Borg reference?
  • I'm not at all embarrassed by producing discrete output.
  • I bring to you the gift of mirth, and you turn on me? Why?

  • video-script:  So last weekend, I'm in a dark bar, holding up a wall, while my friend is standing in a line to get some beers, right. This woman walks up to me and says, "I've seen you before. If you're such a starving artist then you can eat my pussy". I was stunned! And she was not my type at all. She follows up with "I'll give you $10 bucks to blow me". Wow, holly shit, $10 bucks, this ain't right! At that point of the situation, I'm feeling a sense of panic coming over me. Then she grabs my crotch with one hand, naturally I get distracted, and she slaps me in the face with the other! At this point I'm trying to catch my breath, looking for my friend though a sea of people or any one who can help even though I'm speechless. Then she gets close, real close. All I could smell was scotch and hairspray. It was overwhelming. She says, "I'm a lady. Let me get you drunk first". True story.
  • On tourism: graffiti bike tours urban exploring
  • On content: Magazines are like paper blogs, updated once a month, and you have to pay 100 buck a year for the privilege of looking at their ads. In a year you would easily frequent a thousand blogs; that would cost everyone $100,000 per year. Who would still want that? That's why mags are gone and the internet is essentially free.
  • A post office box that is a shredder service, for those pesky bureaucracies that insist on spending snail spam.
  • On another ranting and modest proposal: The real world has barriers to entry at every step. Trying to contribute anything to a real world establishment needs to be seen as fraction of the total cost of ownership of an establishment. Compare that to the barriers to entry on the internet, where the marginal cost is near zero. The real world is mostly a heap of expensive waste, piled with mostly used up consumer waste and packaging, uninstalled investments, things made of tax, and things to do with apparent scarcity of safe space. The real world is full of immovable large scale objects that take billions of dollars to alter in any meaningful way. We should simply disregard the real world -- as one modest proposal. The real world is a place where our bodies get sustenance, our minds get hijacked with busy work, and waste comes out. The virtual world is where culture has a very active and dynamic existence. It is a place where active art, culture, and science thrive.
  • On art projects: Just script a lewd act and repeat to fill a collage, book, and exhibition space. 1) back lit crotch silhouette portraits, gender balanced x99 collage 2) make love to your bike, gender balanced x99 collage
  • video-script: ladies night / mens night at some venue; solicit street style on camera comments as people exit outside the venue (to minimize resistance from management), to fill a 3 minute clip
  • video-script: follow a garbage truck for photos at dawn, and speed it up to fit a 3 minute clip
  • On art projects: night photography, with remote triggered flash, full zoom, capturing subject in silhouette in the crossfire; need at least 3 people involved; around iconic sites like Harbour Bridge, Anzac Bridge, Pyrmont, Kings Cross, William St, Central Station

OKC redblackrye 2013 LOL

About a week ago I set up my OKCUPID account, on advice from friends. Today I deleted my POF account. OKC is pretty awesome!

My self-summary
Hi I'm Bob, and this is my 2 dimensional bio.

I grew up on scifi, making electronics, and enjoying physics and chemistry with hubris. I'm a bit dyslexic, autistic, and generally awkward around people and inanimate objects -- nah, just kidding. I don't know.

I cycle everywhere, at a leisurely pace -- if you are into that then that's very cool with me, and bonus points for a single speed. I love to cook and eat well -- vegan, there, I said it. I've been know to binge on downloads, youtube, and the web -- I'm a sponge for information, also Jewy comedy, and good scifi. I'm a minimalist as far as stuff is concerned, but have a lot of digital material. My stuff is mostly tools and essentials. My wardrobe is color coordinated, in black because it's practical. I don't own a tv -- my housemate gave me a loaner, but I haven't taken it out of the bubble wrap yet. I think that covers lifestyle, pretty much, yeah.

I would love to meet someone local, a woman, a vegan, preferably much smarter, kinder, and funnier than me. I know that there are a lot of wonderful people around the inner west and inner east. If you just make yourself available to discovery, and vulnerable, connections to beautiful individuals are inevitable.

What I’m doing with my life
I'm a commercial photographer, in a great studio space with arty types -- I'm not arty. I live and work in Inner West Sydney, in Erskineville -- it will do for now.

I’m really good at
Photos, and sometimes bad ideas (the second thing does not necessarily relate to the first thing, but I like the way you think).

The first things people usually notice about me
My big fat glasses. And then my Americanish accent.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Management Myth (I don't really get time to read books), The Big Lebowski (cult classic, love it or hate it), Curb Your Enthusiasm (and the Seinfeld gold standard), good russian electro (also live jazz ), oily stir fry (not really, I'll eat anything vegan).

The six things I could never do without
The Internet (the universe inside the box),
food (made by me or you),
my bicycle (mature, I know),
coffee (black) and booze (red wine, beer, anything),
work (whatever drives you),
sex (someone to be really close to)

But here is #6things that I prefer:

bad comedy with good company,
my horrible circles of friends who tolerate me,
the big city or any lump of culture with it's own gravity,
tainted alcohol and tainted atmosphere,
my silly fat head for conjuring bad ideas,
the fine company of my left hand when I make time for it

I spend a lot of time thinking about
business or pleasure -- I could break this box

On a typical Friday night I am
Honestly, Friday doesn't register with me, probably because I don't do a 9to5. So Friday is Anyday, and on Anyday I tend to get hijacked by some random thing that takes over my life before I snap out of it.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like androgyny -- not sure why. I answered 2700+ questions. OKC is educating me on contemporary sexuality -- I had the ratio of weirdos to perverts all wrong. Redblackrye, in case you were wondering, is a carryover from my former pof profile -- red wine, black coffee, rye bread. My self importance is almost zero -- though the self esteem part is mostly through the roof, but don't check up on it.

I’m looking for
Girls who like guys
Ages 18–99
Near me
For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating

You should message me if
If we Match at 80-100% and you want to meet (m/f) .. or you're vegan (good/evil) .. or you are reading this on Google Glass (from The Future) .. or you're brilliant + hot + perverted + weird .. or if you are around Erskineville or Newtown and wanna hang out over a coffee or booze -- then by all means, get my attention!

Sydney Bike Hash 47 -- Red Dress Ride

On Sunday, I went to anther Bike Hash. Some men simply would not miss the an opportunity to ride around Sydney in a red dress. The ride raised money for MS Australia.
