Concert, DJ

 
Yes, this is a week late. deal with it. Was too busy last week and swapped my Sunday to Friday for a DJ gig Saturday. Lots of work to prepare. Unfortunately I couldn't do it with my own software as intended. Will take a look at the DJ software I developed next month. I tend to break from projects when things don't go well, had lots of breaks from eye tracking! Project load hasn't decreased but now I can focus on projects. I also committed myself to producing a radio show, but what's one more thing to do?

Three Fridays ago I went to a concert. Went for Jason Derulo but also enjoyed Jonas Blue. Other acts were crap. In segregated seating, a friend beside me also seemed to hate the seats due to the lack of interaction with the stage. No shit, I prefer to be in general admission. You can see fuck all. Fuck all the fucking people who insist on having us back. My advice; just buy general admission. Venues can be talked into letting you on the floor from experience. You may have to settle for the side but it's still better than segregated seating.

Two Saturdays ago I went to my sister's wedding. I forgot that I was a crippled vampire that doesn't function in sunlight; eye tracking wasn't going to work outside and barely worked indoors. If I wasn't DJing the wedding I'm sure anti social and workahollic me would have spent the entire time blogging; I quite liked DJing. Would have liked it better if my eye tracker wasn't a piece of shit. Next year I hope to finish my own DJ software. Not for any professional goals. I tend to build stuff just for something to do. Some stuff I build as spare time projects I'll eventually turn into products though. I could probably combine my DJ software with my DJ automation system; best of both worlds.

Nothing else to say, so, bye!

Concerts, Project ADHD, Mad Computer Scientist

 
Sunday I went to Auckland for a concert. Enjoyed Kelis and Ne-Yo. Saw a bit of Sean Paul, had to leave early because I had something else to do. There was only one really crap act who seemed to be getting off on telling the crowd what to do. I generally don't like acts doing this. "Put your hands up in the air" If I wanted to pay for someone to tell me what to do I'd hire a BDSM hooker. Yes I get it's concert culture blah blah blah, clearly not my thing. If I am paying you should be my puppet.

Monday I went home, short but good trip.

I think my project ADHD has hit crisis point. I want to do too many things. Just this week I resumed eye tracking development and researched how to build a SMS application. I have been talking about launching a music site for about a year, never get around to it. It's also tempting to presue similar faces technology and super resolution technology for video. Before that I am developing laughter analysis software to score jokes. I have a whole other line of entertainment software that I want to launch, same with ecommerce and building navigation software. I MAY have figured out the problem with my pitch shifting code so I can do singing synthesis/auto tune text to speech voices. I need people to sell! I occasionally inquire but it leads to nowhere. I'll try again in a few weeks.

I also want to do screenplays and music production, I'll try and spend a few hours a week after a wedding I'm DJing, need to spend my arts time on that, before that it was Brisbane. The reason I'm developing a SMS application is so I can use phones overseas.

There's a bunch of stuff I haven't mentioned. Perhaps I do too much. If I could monetize the building navigation and ecommerce products that would be a start. Some projects are small so although it feels like a crisis and overwhelming it may get better after a month or two.

I decided that I like the term Mad Computer Scientist. People are free to call me that. This is a play on the term Mad Scientists, a common thing in pop culture. If you're sensitive to mental health issues, I am also quick to anger so it works for that too.

Brisbane 2017

 

Tuesday I performed my final test before Brisbane. Had to delete some stuff, otherwise it went OK.

It has been suggested that I do more crowd funding to travel. I am not really comfortable taking people's money but I am not going to rule this out entirely. I want to proceed with screen productions and music, but traveling with comedy is also appealing. Some people have said that I should tighten my script. I think that I am already hillarious but also think that trying to optimize is a good idea if traveling internationally. I will try to do more experimenting at paying gigs. Some artists frown on this but also frown on not tightening. I will do things my way. As long as I stay hillarious to the audience that is really all that matters. Should I want to travel internationally I will try and pick up more local gigs.

Productions are the first priority. For years and years I have fantesized about hot guys, but also doing productions like sitcoms and legal shows. It's time for me to presue my dreams. Funding is an issue but I can start small, take things from there.

Thursday I went to Brisbane. I can do lots of blogging here. Fuck it's hot on the plane. Slept for two hours last night. Fucking insomia. My fault for working late.

Friday and Saturday I performed and also experienced some shows during those days. It went well. First time was the larger crowd. A man said he liked my comedy because it tells a story of what his mother must go through. Had some straight Vodkas, only about three. More international trips are appealing, funding is a problem. This one was fully funded. Thanks Access Arts Queensland!

Would it be narsissistic of me to view my comedy as a public service? I am narsissistic, so that's OK.

Sunday I went home. Didn't do about as much blogging as I would have like but as Tony Abbot says shit happens! Shit happened with my phone, couldn't get a SIM card, that was an utter bastard, must buy a new phone before my next trip overseas. Basically my phone is a dinosaur and some countries don't support 2G but the accessibility software for it closed down and I am not sure if the accessibility software will work because its serial number is tied to the model. Fuck that, that is a stupid fucking system. Fuck software developers that discontinue their software too. Maybe I can make my own software or find something else. Not being able to text locals is truly disabling. Otherwise good festival. Trying a margarita on flight home taste appears to linger. Good temporary effect.

Comedy, projects, politics

 
Performed 6 new minutes Wednesday, mostly went well, one dud line. I don't know if getting impatient for the crowd to stop laughing is a good sign or not? Have one more testing set, then hopefully two professional gigs. I may have something else that is going to require me to invent remote text to speech software so I can live speak at a remote location; I am looking forward to the project!

I was going to blog about the election but ended up doing it on my news blog last week. Some plans depend on which way it goes, ultimately I prefer left but I have plans to enact (a website to launch) if it goes right. Left would mean I can focus of other things instead of launching a site to do what the government refuses to do. Although the site would be easy but ultimately I have a zillion other projects and not having to do it would be easier.

This blog is a bit short. Oh hurry the fuck up Winston. For people that complain he has all the power you should have done more to increase your side instead of bitching after the fact. This system is shitty but is at least better than parties winning with only 33% of the vote. All eyes on Winston, he probably likes it this way. Stupid pundits should stop mentioning a blue green government is a possibility, you're in an utter fucking fantasy world! Their base would leave the greens and the party would die. How many MPs did the maori party and United Future get? Oh that's right 0! Act 1! All parties had multiple MPs at one stage. Greens would die quicker because their core base is anti national. Greens are not just an environmental party but a their base largely prefers socialism too. Did your TV job come with cocaine?

Comedy and blogging

 
Tuesday I performed stand up comedy, I was fantastic, as always. Well most of the time anyway. Enjoyed it, I always do but I have to have an objective to do gigs. Need to test new content for Brisbane. I may have some other stuff lined up beyond that. However I'm developing a line up of arts related software and that will remain my primarily focus when it comes to the arts, and learning music production. I also want to professionally write comedy, can never get success finding jobs. Maybe I will email more producers or whatever after Brisbane. I am considering crowd funding productions, again after Brisbane. Maybe I should do animations first to build a base. I don't know. I get ideas, and don't have the manpower to capitalize on them. Some I start and forget, some never make it out of the development phase. Some active projects I don't devote enough time to; I just have to automate more of my work. Hey at least I'm not a president too stupid to do anything productive with the power. I feel much better!

I have a Patreon page that basically hasn't been used for years since its inception. I am wondering if the Pateron model would work for a disability oriented production company, could be worth doing. I know that I want to start the organization after Brisbane, undecided on what form. Regarding monetizing my personal blog posts, would be a dream come true, but I am not sure how popular I am. I am lucky if I get two likes per post LOL. I would like to spend more time blogging, but there's probably more creative avenues that would be better use of my time. I am finding it hard to restrict myself to one Brain Blog a month; I could do two however maybe monthly ensures I don't run out of content. I have a post on weight and psychology next month. I wanted to do technology blogs, but I just keep posting about psychology. A problem I have is between blogging and spare time projects I have almost no time for anything else, like researching new porn. I would love it if I could do some blogging in work time; alternatively porn. No not as a performer, I would definitely write scenes though. Would need to research what people like. There's a joke by Jimmy Dore "I'm a wanker, I don't want to do a medical examination" Do people really like the extreme close ups? Let me know? Also let me know how I can be paid for blogging; thinking of connecting my main disability blog to Patreon, that might be a start. Will probably connect a comedy division to my disability production company and talent agency. Sounds like a plan.

Ariana Grande 2017

 
Tried another stand up wheelchair. No idea if I am going to get funding for it. The salesman has everything he needs to provide a quote. Hopefully I get it.

Never staying here again, practically a dump with shit access, both outside and the room. Slightly more privacy. YouTube doesn't work, facebook video does. Fuck that.

It's Friday as I am typing. Off to Auckland. Having Burger King at airport, just because I can, I like soft meat, easier to eat.

Sunday, back home. went to Ariana Grande Saturday. Music was pretty good, stage show was great at time. She pretty much just sang, which I know duh she's a singer but some singers also provide entertaining dialogue. I'd give the show a B. Does this count as a website review? Can I write off the trip as business? Probably not. I really need to start my music site so I can do that. I keep getting sidetracked with other projects. Latest is a DJ automation system. It's my first dual web and Windows project!

Now to do programming for three hours.

Music, comedy, 32

 
I don't feel like blogging; I have no idea how much I slept if at all. Let's say it was a rare time I got intoxicated. Although I did some work at the same time, for a DJ gig. Gives me experience in the field. I should note last night was totally sanctioned by my client, I don't have some horrible work ethic.

Fans of my comedy should note that I am probably going to resume stand up comedy in several weeks; got a probable overseas gig and need to test some new material.

I am now 32. I really should start to make changes to my life; though need an significant income stream first. Eh perhaps I'll continue to build up stuff and do that next year. I don't want to be a birthday grinch, but I am not enthused. Every year I want to do something big, but my business always seems to be not as successful as I would like to warrant it, possibly next year. I need to travel more. At least I have one probable overseas trip, one per year is the bare minimum that I want. Recently I that overseas accessibility is not good. So maybe I can do something with that. I already have two tourism related ventures, perhaps combine those with a few other things and who knows?

Little Mix 2017

 
After Auckland I went to the doctor and it turns out I have a chest infection, on antibiotics. With combined insomia due to hip pain all I could do is half sick days without much spare time programming projects. I didn't like it. I'm probably going to start my half holidays next week. I promised that I would do it for my month of birth.

The following Saturday I went to Auckland and again for a Little Mix concert. Weekend is turning out to be only slightly less crappy than last due to guys cancelling on me. I do enjoy getting rooms very high. On the 14th floor; I like the skyscrapper view. Room also has air conditioning. Stupid case sensitive Wifi password. Didn't work it out until the next morning. Would help if it didn't have a fUckedCode

Concert was good, would have been better if I wasn't on antibiotics and could drink. Found their music to be diverse, enjoyed it. A criticism was they weren't on for long, however nothing could be as bad as the Vengaboys who danced to other people's music half the time, they didn't even use their own voices for many songs. Personally I'd rather listen to a short amount of original music than have them do random covers to fill in time.

Monday I went home, not terribly happy about the 2pm flight, though I did get another two blogs done. 6 blogs in total I wrote.

Sugar Rios

 
Nothing noteworthy in the first week. Thursday the second week I went to Auckland for a Sugar Rios concert. Not feeling 100% so maybe just sticking to a segregated seat is worthwhile h. Almost didn't come.

Saturday now. Concert was good. Spent most of the first half in segregated seating but the music was kind of soft so I thought why not go down? They would only let me on the side for some strange reason; if people can't see me it's their problem, I just laugh when they crash into me and hope they're hot. Surprised the arena was so full a non English speaking band. Going home today.

Generally I avoid annoucing when I go away on facebook unless you I absolutely have to. This time It avoided posting for two days in order to stop an annoying daily notificaton. You've shared 107 days in a row and your friends are responding. Don't care. Fuck off. I'll always post one every 96 hours and almost daily. I appreciate the incentive to not post.

Was going to blog again next week but I think I am happy with a two week schedule for now.

Trial wheelchair, NdT, etc

 
Well insomnia continued for about a week then I was able to kick it, so far, it's Wednesday July as I am typing this... *opens email inbox* it's the 5th. Well I don't fucking know what the date is otherwise. Got a trial stand up wheelchair today, days off were adjusted to fit with this. For some reason I have leg pads, I hate them! They must incorrectly assume that I fling my legs out randomly. I don't! It's too restrictive, not getting one permanently. Just a chest strap will do for standing. Otherwise good apart from sharp parts. And things fall off randomly, hopefully they'll be secured if I get it permanently.

Last night I went to Neil deGrasse Tyson, enjoyed it, although the opening video kind of sucked and the topic frankly was a horrible fit for the rest of the evening; out of place. Let's criticize muslims for being anti science, because talking snakes in the Bible is totally science based and factual. Turkey is pushing for evolution not to be taught, so are legislators in Texas! Sure some parts of Islam are extremists, but the problem also exists in Christianity to a lesser extent. Right wing Christians have had some pretty crappy ideas too such as neoliberal economics, the Iraq invasion and oh not doing anything about climate change because God will save us; fuck off and fuck you. Neil didn't mention Islam, ridiculously out of place video. I'm blaming the Australian organization for that! Otherwise good show. Inspired to write about the myth of over population; he was answering a question about it and basically thinks that there's no such thing, which is basically what I declared on a Facebook post a few months ago. Smart man he is; most people who agree with me are. I also like the idea of science entertainers, will keep that in mind for upcoming talent agencies I run.

Today (Sunday now) I took the trial wheelchair around the block, not bad, just turns too fast in comparison to going straight, can be adjusted, good chair.

Bye for two weeks. Hopefully I will finally start my half holidays then! Having trouble bringing myself to not work full time, too much to do.
