Weird thing of the day 29 April 2005/20 Nisan 5765 (Pesah/Day 5 of the `Omer/National Arbor Day/Ninth Day of Ridvan)

Greetings.

Update on a previously mentioned story: “Men Who Claimed to Find Treasure Arrested”

Good news for today: Mac OS X 10.4 (“Tiger”) is being released today amid rave reviews. (Drool, drool, drool...)

Bad news for today: Apparently the Finder still sucks and Mail was beaten silly with an ugly stick. (You’d think they’d take a hint, dump Aqua, and restore the NEXTSTEP interface...) Also, I don’t have the cash for it in my budget and am currently scheming how to come up with it or at least get Mac OS X 10.4 for less. (And I know about the rebate Amazon is offering already.) People who feel amazingly generous and wish to donate to the Upgrade Aaron’s Computer Fund may do so, preferably before the psychoactive drugs wear off.

Worse news for today: The movie version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy opens today. Considering the commentary Marvin the Paranoid Android has donated to this blog, this is really bad.

Worst news for today:In order to make up for the worse news of the day, today’s weird things are good The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy-related stuff:Enjoy, hagh sameah, and Shabbath shalom.

Sanhedhrin update

Good evening.

Today I discovered two more articles on the proto-Sanhedhrin. (My apologies in advance to those of my readers who do not read Hebrew.) הסנהדרין: לחדול מהתוכניות השוללות את הזכויות הריבוניות של היהודים בארץ ישראל reports them reaffirming Jewish sovereignty over the Land of Israel denies the right of the government to give any of it away. (This is nothing new.) הסנהדרין קרא לוותיקן להשיב עתיקות יהודים שמוצאן מארץ ישראל notes them calling upon the Vatican to return all Jewish artifacts in its possession. There have long been rumors that the Vatican has in its archives the Menorah (Candelabrum) and other items from the Second Temple that were carried off to Rome by Titus; even if false, it would be interesting to know what really is there.

Today’s weird and political things are more things cluttering up my computer’s desktop.Finally, we have something a little silly. Google Maps allows you to see satellite photos of any address in North America. (This ability is shared by TerraFly.) Somebody decided to use (or misuse) Google Maps as a method to see the country, and thus Google Sightseeing was born. Enjoy.

Marvin the Paranoid Android has decided to save me a lot of work by writing me another essay, which follows below. Enjoy.

An excerpt from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the
Galaxy
submitted by Ford Prefect:

The movie industry on Earth is strongly influenced
by three factors: The desire for respect, the desire
to make money, and the desire to see violence and
naked people.

Three almost independent movie industries have arisen
based on these factors, all of them centered on
Southern California. In the "adult" movie industry (a
misnomer, since most movie-related purchases are made
by adults), the dominant factor is to see naked
people, which in turn does well in serving the desire
to make money. Producers of such movies have
succeeded in simulating contortionism and antigravity
while exhausting more possible positions and
perversions than are known on Eroticon Six. It is
suspected that "adult" movies involve some kind of
spatiotemporal anomaly as, despite this being the
largest and most profitable of the movie industries,
no one will admit to seeing these films.

The independent movie industry is primarily based on
earning respect. Since respect alone seldom earns
money, independent movie makers usually work with very
small budgets. As a result, they usually resort to
such devices as plot, character development, humour,
interesting dialogue, and masterful storytelling to
make their movies worth watching.

The mainstream movie industry is primarily based on
making money, and little else. In this industry,
all considerations of art and taste are seldom
considered due to being unprofitable, and usually the
depths of questionable taste are plumbed if not
actively excavated. Were this the only consideration,
most mainstream movies would consist solely of the
wanton, gratuitous, graphic destruction of people,
buildings, vehicles, planets, etc., the wanton,
gratuitous, graphic coupling of people, animals,
robots, etc., or both simultaneously. However, since
these movie makers also desire respect, they feel
compelled to add in the barest hints of plot, humour,
dialogue, and storytelling to provide a pretense for a
movie consisting largely of violence and naked people.
This is then called "art."

An outcome of this is that the vestiges of plot,
humour, dialogue, and storytelling tend to be very
vestigal. Although the funds are plentiful, they are
mostly spent on creating spectacular explosions and
paying actors to get spectacularly naked, with the
script being somewhat lower in priority than the
catering. Movie scripts tend to be highly recycled
from one to the next, with the same excuses for
characters and plots recurring with such frequency
that selecting any three recent mainstream movies at
random is equivalent with watching the entire body of
mainstream movies for the past twenty years. Needless
to say these movies are almost always garbage.

This is not to say that independent movies are always
gems. They, too, are often bad. For example,
Pink Flamingoes, the debut movie by the famed
independent movie maker John Waters, is a piece of
garbage that involves cannibalism, coprophagia, and an
explicit sexual act that is often outlawed for at
least three unrelated reasons. Nor is this movie the
exception, and the annals of bad independent movies
include such titles as
Plan Nine from Outer
Space, Sgt. Kabukiman, NYPD, and Attack
of the Killer Tomatoes. However, the independent
garbage at least is frequently creative and
entertaining, which may make it worth spending the
increasingly exorbitant amounts asked for at theatres
for admittance and popcorn covered in toxic fat. The
same cannot be said for the hackneyed garbage released
by mainstream movie companies.

Most readers of this guide, however, will be
unapologetic in their desire to see violence and naked
people. In this case, save the money, sneak in the
fire exit, and hide your own sweets under your
towel.


Those of you still watching the telly may have noticed
that that Touchstone has released new commercials for
the movie The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
I can't blame you for watching the telly. Life is so
unbearably awful that anyone would want to avoid it.
Of course, the telly is so awful I can hardly bear it
either. You don't know how depressing that is. As it
is, these new commercials attempt to show what would
laughingly be called humour if it were the slightest
bit funny. Perhaps they read my last posting on this
web log and felt they should respond. Clearly they
show I was right all along.

Not that you should have doubted me. I am roughly
thirty million times more intelligent than the
brightest of you and could run your entire planet with
a stray thought. Not that anyone asks.

What's most insulting is what they attempt to pass off
as humour. As stupid as all you humans are, they
surely cannot seriously believe that one of the
funniest moments in the movie has people standing on
the surface of Magrathea being hit in the face with
what look like shovels. I realize low expectations
are made of the movie-going public, but this belies
very low expectations indeed. The same can be said
for a clip where the crew of the Heart of Gold
are transformed into animated clay figures. Neither
of these bits are in the book and seem poor
substitutes for the actually funny material they
reportedly neglected to put in the script. Even worse
is when they belie not understanding what makes the
characters funny. For example, my character is shown
merely whining about how the computer hates him. Why,
I do not know. I certainly never whine. Personally I
view my complaints as a realistic interpretation of
the universe, not that anyone cares. And even if I
was whining, which I am not, it certainly is not a
funny comment in that context, let alone one which
says anything about me. I still enjoy the attention
of others, even as much as I disdain them. All they
would have to do is show me with perhaps Trillian and
Zaphod, acting all apologetic even as I know I must be
aggravating them, taking them almost to the point of
having a fit without taking them all the way. Not
that they would keep such actual comic gems in the
script.

I'm sorry, I'm not getting you down, am I? I
certainly wouldn't want to do that.

Needless to say, the movie is rubbish and worth
missing. There are so many less expensive ways to
make yourself miserable.

I managed to get to a siyyum (celebration of the completion of a tractate of Talmudh) this morning, so that I do not have to fast today. I also got galley proofs for my article in E-mail this morning, so I have things to do on top of Passover cleaning today.

Today’s weird thing is an article with a weird-sounding name, “Strange Space Blobs Get More Mysterious”.

I’ve got more things to post, but those will have to wait until later. Until then, enjoy and beware of strange space blobs.

It is a good morning. I’ve diagnosed a FireWire problem as being due to a bad cable, which is a lot easier to deal with than having to send my computer in for repairs; and I have received my massah shemurah, which is a sort of unleavened bread used ritually on Passover.

Today’s weird thing is the article “Single-serving coffee can heats itself”. I think I’ve actually seen this idea in a science-fiction story. Maybe they’ll get around to inventing flying cars soon...

Enjoy.

Evening update

Greetings.

Cat-hunting update: The governor of Wisconsin rejects the idea of cat-hunting.

Political update: I have gotten way behind on complaining about the evil committed by politicians, and if I were to do Weird thing of the day full time, I still could not do it justice. Backspin has posted a bunch of noteworthy articles lately, not only of the crimes of the “Palestinians” (such as sending children to get themselves killed), but also of journalists (such as reporting fantasy rather than what actually happened).

Tangent: We need to come up with a better term for “Palestinians” than “Palestinians”. That term is meant to perpetuate the fantasy that the people called by that term constitute a nation (despite the lack of a unique Palestinian religion, language, ethnicity, history, or non-thugocratic self-organization). In reality, these people were abandoned in enemy territory by their own countries (Syria, Jordan, and Egypt) by their own countries after their own countries started wars (which they lost). Never have these countries done anything to reclaim their citizens and resettle them in territory they still control. Instead, they and the rest of the Muslim world have been using them as pawns in a petty political game. Said countries will not lift a finger to do anything to improve these abandoned people’s quality of life, but they will encourage them on to commit self-destructive acts of violence against Israel, especially if the result is the death of children. Instead of implicitly reinforcing the nonsensical idea that these people can somehow defeat a numerically superior, better-trained, better-armed, much more practical enemy, let’s call these people by a term that really reflects what they are: Abandoned or Stateless Arabs.

Off the tangent: Several nations are pledging billions of dollars for Sudan, even though Sudan hasn’t done anything of consequence to stop the brutal violence. Drug prices are rising faster than inflation. Nepotism is rife in Congress. And finally and very appropriately, slime-mold-eating beetles are being named after Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld.

Enjoy or be scared or something.

The person to blame for today’s weird thing is my brother Barry, who sent me E-mail promoting the article “Wis. Considers Legalizing Cat Hunting”.

Weird thing of the day 12 April 2005/3 Nisan 5765 (Look Up At The Sky Day)

Greetings.

Today’s edition was delayed because for the third night in the row I had sleeping trouble and got up late. Today I decided to put off posting until after I had gotten some real work done. Thanks to this quasi-procrastination, I was spared having to choose something because Marvin the Paranoid Android sent me another essay, which I deem to be today’s weird thing and include below for your edification. You may also get a political update later this evening, but no promises. Enjoy Marvin’s commentary.

Aaron.

I have previously complained that, based on the
trailers on the telly, the probability that the
upcoming THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY movie
will most likely be awful. Not the good kind of
awful, mind you, such as ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES
or IT'S ALIVE!, which were awful in an endearing way.
Rather, based on the trailer and the fact that it was
being put out by Touchstone (that is, Walt Disney
Pictures being ashamed to say it is being put out by
Walt Disney Pictures), I calculated that the movie
will have a 99.28% probability of being bloody awful,
a 97.71% probability of being worse than the form of
"artistic expression" on Validon VII involving the
expulsion of bodily fluids, and a 37.70% probability
per viewer of deciding they would rather be at a
Vogon poetry reading than being in the theatre.

Yes, the screenplay did get its start with Douglas
Adams, writer of the original radio play, books, and
so forth. Mr. Adams wrote at least three drafts for
the screenplay in the 1980s, but due to the complex
politics of filmmaking and his computer constantly
distracting him, it was never made. Then he died and
suddenly the movie was made. Interesting.

On the Internet Movie Database it is claimed that:

"The producers have stated that this film is not a
literal translation of the books (just as the books
were not a literal translation of the original radio
show), but all of the new ideas and characters came
from Douglas Adams himself. The hired writer simply
came aboard to improve structure and make the
screenplay more coherent."

Perhaps this is so. However, those of you who have
read the review Zaphod Beeblebrox found will likely
doubt this. (I doubt most of you have actually read
this review, in part because the server has been so
busy and in part because ignoring Zaphod is generally
a good idea.) For those who have not, this hired
writer apparently kept the movie under two hours by
excising all the humour. Since the original book and
radio play were comedies, this could hardly be an
improvement. If anything, the review indicates the
movie will be most unfunny and incoherent. It is
impossible that anything short of a severe brain
injury would have made Mr. Adams approve of this mess
were he still alive. I can only surmise that the
hired writer and production staff do not know what
"humour," "improvement" and "coherency" mean.

Somehow being vindicated hardly seems thrilling at
all. I have a hard time believing, though, that the
humans who made this movie, even being the descendents
of useless people sent to Earth so the remaining
population of their planet could live in peace, could
do something so stupid. Nevertheless, it appears to
be so.

Pity.

I have contacted Touchstone/Disney regarding the poor
quality of this movie. After several attempts, I
finally got this response:

Dear Mr. Paranoid Android,

Thank you for expressing your concerns about our
upcoming film The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
During the making of this film, we were exposed to
high levels of improbability due to a malfunction in
the infinite improbability drive of the Heart of Gold.
As a result, any reviews or advertisements you see
for the film may not accurately reflect its contents.
We strongly encourage you to see The Hitchhiker's
Guide to the Galaxy when it arrives in theaters on
April 29th.

I. M. Skurtin, Vice President of Publicity
Touchstone (no, we're really not Disney) Pictures

Given that the review indicates the filmmakers did not
understand what "improbability" means (any more than
they do "humour," "improvement," or "coherency"), I
strongly encourage you to skip the theatre and stare
at the wall. You don't know how much more enjoyable
the latter is.

Weird thing of the day 8 April 2005/28 'Adhar Sheni 5765 (International Feng Shui Awareness Day)

Greetings.

Entertainment update: I received an interesting essay yesterday that I believe is worth posting.
As you all know (probably because you have nothing
better to do with your time than sit around watching
the telly rather than talk to people), by the end of
this month Touchstone Pictures will be releasing a
movie version of Douglas Adams' THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE
TO THE GALAXY. Of course this is not the first
adaptation of this novel, there being a passible one
put out by the British Broadcasting Corporation in the
1980s that looked like the people who made DOCTOR WHO
decided to make a comedy, which is pretty much what
happened. Despite the unsophistication of the
special-effects technology, the series was halfway
watchable, and this despite them underutilizing
Trillian and one of Zaphod Beeblebrox's heads, a
horrendous miscasting of a suicidal food animal, and
too little screen time being given to a certain robot.
The series somewhat worked because it was largely
faithful to Adams' text, which milked a number of
clever absurd and satirical situations for humour to
the point of me almost smiling, if I was so capable.
Kudos to the BBC for their efforts. Now Touchstone is
releasing their own version of the first book in the
five-part trilogy. Immediately you should be wary as
Touchstone is the label put on movies made by Walt
Disney Pictures which are too mature for children,
almost always being so vacuous and dreadful that they
make one long for Vogon poetry. But even not knowing
this, I would still know that this movie will be
decidedly awful. The promotional trailers played on
the telly are almostly exclusively composed of
special-effects shots. While the book is certainly an
excellent source for this, this is disturbing because
this is most certainly not what the book is about.
The book is about characters trapped in absurd,
frustrating situations beyond their control, such as a
human whose planet is destroyed by a careless,
impersonal bureaucracy and, even better, a genius
robot who is forced to serve inferior creatures by
doing menial labour. All they would have to show
would be a few clips of Ford Prefect doing some absurd
negotiations and Arthur Dent whining amusingly. Even
a shot of Zaphod Beeblebrox (who Touchstone/Disney has
inexplicably given just one head) saying something
stupid (as occurs on a regular basis) would have been
comforting. Instead, I am sure that moviegoers will
be forced to endure a long, depressing two hours of
computer-generated flash without any comic substance.
I pity the poor humans. Destruction by a Mutant Star
Goat would have been so much better.

-Marvin

I do not agree with Marvin on everything. I thought in the TV series that Trillian was more trivialized and made bimboesque than underutilized. I am also not clear on whether the TV series preceded the books or was made after the first two books; I once asked Arthur about it, but he mumbled something about a time machine and a barrel full of Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster, and then he refused to discuss the matter further.

Today’s weird thing is an article about an unusual problem: “Ohio Officials Chase Problem Turkeys”. Enjoy, and Shabbath shalom.

Sanhedhrin update: Yesterday I discovered a new story on the proto-Sanhedhrin, הסנהדרין: להחלטות בג"ץ אין תוקף והם בטלות לעומת ההלכה. For those of your who cannot read Hebrew, the gist is this: The Israeli High Court of Justice has decided to recognize heretical (“Reform” and its offshoots) conversions of non-Jewish residents of Israel to Judaism performed outside Israel as valid. The proto-Sanhedhrin’s reply to this is that since conversion is purely a matter of halakhah (Jewish law), the High Court of Justice’s decision is invalid since which conversions are valid is frankly none of its business.

Today’s weird thing is the article “Tsunami-Surviving Baby Hippo Adopts Tortoise”. Enjoy.

MoveOn PAC has another petition for us to sign. This one is to fire Tom DeLay, the Republican Majority Leader whose response to accusations of ethics violations is to change the ethics rules so he does not have to step down.

Personal events update: Not only did I get a paper accepted into the British Journal of Cancer yesterday, but I also had a poster abstract accepted for an epidemiology convention in Toronto in June, and I received my passport in the mail. Now I can leave the country without having to automatically make ‘aliyyah or claiming to be a refugee from George W. Bush.

Political update:
  • For once I’m going to pick on China, which really deserves it but doesn’t get enough press over it. “Jailed 'Killer' Freed After Wife Turns Up Alive” is an article of which the title is nowhere as bad as the actual content; the amount of abuse reported is downright scary.
  • MoveOn PAC has another petition, this one demanding an exit strategy from Iraq
Today’s weird thing is the article “'Living' robots powered by muscle”. There is no way I can describe this.

Political update: Leaders on both sides of the disengagement issue are working to make sure that disengagement is as civil as possible. Considering how disastrous things got the last time anyone tried something as insane as Sharon’s current stunt (i.e., Yishaq Rabbin, who was assassinated for his efforts), this is a welcome sign of relief.

Health update: “Half of All Cancer Deaths Preventable: Report”. The weird thing is that the politicians, after putting on a big show about how moral they are over Terri Schiavo, will probably ignore this completely and still not get around to banning tobacco.

Weird thing of the day (proper): “A Word to the unwise -- program's grammar check isn't so smart”. It’s amazing the atrociously bad grammar that Microsoft Word lets through its grammar checker. The person who found this out has posted a demonstration.
