Your (Presumeably) First Introduction to Paul Outerbridge

In meat packer's gloves on December 21, 2010 at 7:29 pm

was this photo:

“The trompe l’oeil is the ironic simulacrum of reality. It is what surrealism was to the functionalist revolution of the early twentieth century — surrealism being but an ironic reverie on the principle of functionality. And like trompe l’oeil surrealism is not quite part of art or art history, for their concern is with a metaphysical dimension, and not with matters of style. They attack our sense of reality or functionality and, therefore, our sense of consciousness. They seek out the wrong or reverse side of things, and undermine the world’s apparent factuality. This is why the pleasure that they give us, their seductiveness, however small, is radical; for it comes from a radical surprise borne of appearances, from a life prior to the mode of production of the real world.”

Yes, I typed all this out for you, dear readers. Yes, Baudrillard is baller. Yes, that is a nude wearing meat packer’s gloves. Is it art? Well, what do you think?

How to make your HTC Incredible play that dramatic Law and Order sound when you receive a text message

I wondered exactly that.

First, download the sound, which is here.

Download it, and put it somewhere easy to find.

Next, dock your phone to your computer so you can browse its folders. This means you need to select “mount as disk drive” when you plug it into your computer.

Next, open “My computer.” There will be two folders that you can access for your phone. One is the storage space in your phone, the other is the removable Micro SD card. The card is usually the second of the folders to appear. For me, it shows up as the N:\ drive. Open the folder to N:\media\audio\notifications, and drag the mp3 into it. Undock your phone, and go to Settings/Sound/Notification sound, where you can select it.



SOTD: The Cramps, “Green Fuzz”

(Nota bene: The first time I ever heard this song was when I was a senior in college, and had just witnessed a boy solve a Rubik’s cube in 20 minutes. Directly after accomplishing this feat, he immediately hopped on a skateboard and skated around the room, drinking from a plastic jug of water, until he crashed into the bed and proceeded to kiss me. The song in that moment ruled utterly.) Read the rest of this entry »
