Human 2.0 yakın mı?

Yapay uzuvlar ve organlarla kapasitesi arttırılmış insan... Şu videoya bakılırsa çok uzak değil gibi!




Child in Time

Deep Purple'ın en sevdiğim, en sevilesi parçası... İlk kez, kendi kazandığım parayla aldığım ilk iki albümden biri olan "30: Very Best of Deep Purple"da karşıma çıkan ve kaseti geri sara sara defalarca dinlediğim bir parçadır. Bu kaydı ilk kez gördüm bu sabah; gayet hoş olmuş. Paylaşmadan edemedim :)

Missing Missy


Bir reklam ajansında (olsa gerek), tasarımcı ile sekreter arasında geçen bir diyalog, e-mail üzerinden. Özetle sekreterin kedisi kaybolmuş ve tasarımcıdan bir "kayıp ilanı" posteri istiyor. Tasarımcı da (artık aralarındaki husumetten mi yoksa tamamen öküz olduğundan mı bilmem) kızla biraz dalga geçiyor. Uzunca ve inkilişçe ama ben okudum (söylemiş miydim, TOEFL'dan 98 aldım ben :p), eğlendim; bence siz de eğlenirsiniz anacım!

Hi
I opened the screen door yesterday and my cat got out and has been missing since then so I was wondering if you are not to busy you could make a poster for me. It has to be A4 and I will photocopy it and put it around my suburb this afternoon.



This is the only photo of her I have she answers to the name Missy and is black and white and about 8 months old. missing on Harper street and my phone number.
Thanks Shan.

Dear Shannon,

That is shocking news. Luckily I was sitting down when I read your email and not half way up a ladder or tree. How are you holding up? I am surprised you managed to attend work at all what with thinking about Missy out there cold, frightened and alone... possibly lying on the side of the road, her back legs squashed by a vehicle, calling out "Shannon, where are you?"

Although I have two clients expecting completed work this afternoon, I will, of course, drop everything and do whatever it takes to facilitate the speedy return of Missy.

Regards, David.

Dear Shannon,

I never said I don't like cats. Once, having been invited to a party, I went clothes shopping beforehand and bought a pair of expensive G-Star boots. They were two sizes too small but I wanted them so badly I figured I could just wear them without socks and cut my toenails very short. As the party was only a few blocks from my place, I decided to walk. After the first block, I lost all feeling in my feet. Arriving at the party, I stumbled into a guy named Steven, spilling Malibu & coke onto his white Wham 'Choose Life' t-shirt, and he punched me. An hour or so after the incident, Steven sat down in a chair already occupied by a cat. The surprised cat clawed and snarled causing Steven to leap out of the chair, slip on a rug and strike his forehead onto the corner of a speaker; resulting in a two inch open gash. In its shock, the cat also defecated, leaving Steven with a wet brown stain down the back of his beige cargo pants. I liked that cat.

Attached poster as requested.

Regards, David.

It's a design thing. The cat is lost in the negative space.

Dear Shannon,

Having worked with designers for a few years now, I would have assumed you understood, despite our vague suggestions otherwise, we do not welcome constructive criticism. I don't come downstairs and tell you how to send text messages, log onto Facebook and look out of the window. I am willing to overlook this faux pas due to you no doubt being preoccupied with thoughts of Missy attempting to make her way home across busy intersections or being trapped in a drain as it slowly fills with water. I spent three days down a well once but that was just for fun.

I have amended and attached the poster as per your instructions.

Regards, David.

yeah can you do the poster or not? I just want a photo and the word lost and the telephone number and when and where she was lost and her name. Not like a movie poster or anything stupid. I have to leave early today. If it was your cat I would help you. Thanks.

Dear Shannon,

I don't have a cat. I once agreed to look after a friend's cat for a week but after he dropped it off at my apartment and explained the concept of kitty litter, I kept the cat in a closed cardboard box in the shed and forgot about it. If I wanted to feed something and clean faeces, I wouldn't have put my mother in that home after her stroke. A week later, when my friend came to collect his cat, I pretended that I was not home and mailed the box to him. Apparently I failed to put enough stamps on the package and he had to collect it from the post office and pay eighteen dollars. He still goes on about that sometimes, people need to learn to let go.

I have attached the amended version of your poster as per your detailed instructions.

Regards, David.

I know, but that one is cute. As Missy has quite possibly met any one of several violent ends, it is possible you might get a better cat out of this. If anybody calls and says "I haven't seen your orange cat but I did find a black and white one with its hind legs run over by a car, do you want it?" you can politely decline and save yourself a costly veterinarian bill.

I knew someone who had a basset hound that had its hind legs removed after an accident and it had to walk around with one of those little buggies with wheels. If it had been my dog I would have asked for all its legs to be removed and replaced with wheels and had a remote control installed. I could charge neighbourhood kids for rides and enter it in races. If I did the same with a horse I could drive it to work. I would call it Steven.

Regards, David.

Bir 10 yıl da Yavuz için geçti :..(

10 yıl önce bugün, hiç ama hiç anlayamadığım, anlamayı veya kimsenin anlamaya ve anlamlı olduğunu düşünmeye başlamasını hiç ama hiç istemediğim mefhum, Yavuz'a tek yol ya da en anlamlı şey ya da olması gereken olarak göründü ve biz Yavuz'u yitirdik.

Yavuz dinlemek istersem müziklerim yanımda olmayan bir yerde, kolaylık olsun diye... Anmak, hatırlamak?.. Hep geliyor aklıma zaten. Birileri bilsin?.. Şimdiye kadar bilmiyorsa bilmesin zaten; gerek yok! Öyle işte...

Predictions from 1964



1964 tarihli BBC yayınında, Arthur C. Clark geleceğe dair tahminlerde bulunuyor. Uzak gelecekten bahsediyor: 2000 yılı :) Ama helal olsun amcaya; hem yaklaşım güzel hem tahminler.


İnkilişçesi olmayanlar için, yarım yamalak anladığım kadarıyla şöyle diyor:
  • Yaklaşım: Geleceğe dair tahminlerden akla uygun olanları, şimdi de yapılabilir ve gelecekte muhtemelen çoktan aşılmış şeyler olacaktır; fakat saçma gelenler asıl o zaman olacak şeylerdir. gibi gibi bişi diyor işte :)
  • Tahminler: İnsanlar mekandan bağımsız olarak, birbirlerinin tam olarak nerede olduğunu bilmeseler de iletişim kurabilecekler. Hatta işlerini mekandan bağımsız yürütebilecekler. Sadece yönetimsel işler değil, fiziki işler de uzaktan yapılabilecek: Edinburgh'taki bir cerrah Yeni Zellanda'daki bir hastayı ameliyat edebilecek!
Adam konuşmuş yahu :) En hoşuma gideni de adam bunları görmüş, yaşamış. Ne kadar gurur verici bir durum olmuştur onun için :)

Stop-Motion severim zaten...

...bir de böylesine farklı, yaratıcı olursa dadından yenmez bea!

V for Vendetta

Creedy:
[desperately shooting at the approaching V] Die! Die! Why won't you die?... Why won't you die?

V:
Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.



Yani diyor ki (naçizane ingilişçemle çevirmeye çalıştım):


Creedy:
[Yaklaşan V'ye umutsuzca/can havliyle ateş eder.] Geber! Geber! Neden gebermiyorsun?.. Neden gebermiyorsun sen?..


V:
Bu maskenin ardında etten fazlası var. Bu maskenin ardında fikir var, Mr. Creedy, ve fikirler kurşun geçirmez.




Eğer izlemediyseniz, durumu anlatacak en güzel söylem -dostum James'ten alıntılayarak- "Ayıp şerefsizim!"dir. V for Vandetta ile ilgili bir yazı da sonra ve belki de öbür bloga gelsin anacım!
