Tomorrow (Friday, May 25) is Towel Day. For those of you who don’t know, Towel Day is an annual day of memorial to Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The idea is that you should carry a towel over your shoulder all day, in the unlikely event that the earth would vanish into thin vacuum. For a knowledgeable hitchhiker knows that a towel is all you need to get around in the Galaxy. Ideally the towel is decorated with the number 42, so that super computers and mice will have nothing to worry about except finding the question.
A couple of side notes too:
I just added a so called “oneliner” to lw.ls.la (Inspired by pouët.net) which is a simple chat system. lw.ls.la is my home box, so if it eats to much traffic, I may decide to take it down. Until that happens, if it happens, please feel free to drop a line. what I like best about it is the algorithm that takes your IP address and translates it into two colored blocks.
I also want to give a little push to my image board on AnonIB. If you have pictures related to Gameboys and such things, upload them there.
09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0 has actually dropped from 1610000 to 1200000 results. Are people getting scared by the DMCA, are people tired of the hype, was the higher number just a flux in Google’s counting? Nobody knows.
I also received the news that the work on compiling the tracks for the first OXO Unlimited compilation is almost done. The track order and other details will be decided upon on Sunday, but it’s a fact that my track will be the first one on the CD! More news about that on Monday!
In the absence of better things to blog about, here’s another report: 09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0 now has 1610000 results.
I’ll blog about something more interesting tomorrow, I promise. (I’ve got some drafts lying)
09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0 now has 1100000 results. Not the exponential growth I was anticipating. ):
This is a lazy post with two youtube videos.
The first one is another take on the 09 F9 11 02 9D 74 E3 5B D8 41 56 C5 63 56 88 C0 business. (Google has 889000 results today as opposed to 290000 yesterday. I’ll have a daily watch to see it grows)
It’s a little ballad to honor the numbers. Let’s see how long it’ll stay on youtube before the MPAA orders a takedown of the video.

On a related note, I found this delicious link in their bookmarks heap: ANT SCOTT (Glitch art)
And the other one is a commercial that a friend told me about ages ago. I couldn’t find it back then but now I did of a co-incidence.
It’s a dutch banned commercial where a family sits down in their car, turn on the radio and hear a song that says “I wanna fuck you in the ass”. The family, unaware of what the lyrics mean, just keeps on rocking to the song. The commercial, as you might’ve figured, for an English teaching company. (Sorry for not censoring the F word, but I want people who may be searching for it to be able to find it.)
