plagus: dearly gparted

code wars: emergent

code wars: emergent

sorry to go dark abruptly, folks.  some of you have been messaging, staring at the chat window wondering whaddup. even my evil nemesis and reluctant companion has been ominously silent.

this is whaddup: you would not want to be here.

it’s been a rough couple days. however, there’s good news, and it’s this: if you have a computer that you somewhat love and want to keep online, even if it’s old (especially if it’s old), this is the best thing ever. right here, this thing, totally saved my ass:

http://gparted.sourceforge.net/

i’m recovering from one of the worst hard drive crashes of my 20-odd years of building and abusing computers. #rangounmuzzled anti-hero and #hal wannabe #plagus was starving for space. he has been for a year since i ran out of coin. just like his dad, he was pushing the #risk envelope with no system protection, no backups, and gradually degrading performance that eventually lost its comic charm, even for an evil robot notorious for being insufferably slow.  see: vista………………………………………………. ………………
……………………….
……………………………………..

( #bsod :-D ).

i could see the writing on the wall, and it was all graffiti of deathiness. i was consolidating 6 terabytes of data, some of it 20 years old, an 8 year old machine custom built for vista when i was a dev there, but today running Windows 8 on a 2003 BIOS that had sketchy USB boot support. so i was robbing peter to pay paul when the plagus randomly corrupted his system partition MBR. next reboot it was down for the count, couldn’t find boot loader, etc and so forth, and things went south from there. the “startup repair’ feature became the ultimate oxymoron as it assigned a random drive to be active without telling me during reboots, then continued to not-repair itself. so corrupt the only analogy is politician.

so after the repair job (air quotes), no windows media would load. repair discs, install discs, windows vista through windows 10 media, partition repair utils on a WinPE, forget it. they would all hang. and if I disconnected all the drives they would simply reboot the moment the system drive connected.

>  : -(

<< poof >> : -(

poof, sad face. lots of stuff on that drive. way lots.

many hours later. late into the evening. the next morning. you can’t joke about how slow it was to fail without hurting my feelings (“i feel older”). so many diagnostics later, some hobo mumbled something about partition table corruption. no, don’t say that, hobo. that’s gross and awful in every way.

every forum that you chase down to recursive partition table corruption yields the same advice: find a way to mount the disk and zero it. that was still the view of the land yesterday, making me very anxious. there was no backup, and during the root cause analysis i discovered a hidden partition with a terabyte of user data. (#sysop #fail, yer fired).

so return your attention to GParted​. it’s based on a Debian​ distro, it boots on a CD. and it was able to boot (after a very long time) with that failed system drive connected (very slowly). even better, it would boot without it connected (quickly) and then let me attach it, and then actually scan it, without crashing, so i could sit on my hands and wonder about my future.

there were two system partitions and one user partition on that drive (i’ll fix that, lay off already). but #gparted initially showed me an empty drive. seemed like all hope was lost again (tosses coin). however, it ships with a ready bash terminal preloaded with a bunch of file system utilities including ntfsfix and testdisk. with shred of optimisim weighing against the need for sleep, i was able to load the corrupted partition tables into an editor, line up all the start and end points, and fix what can only be described as heinous corruption, manually (with a calculator of course).

whoah. did that actually work?

(reboots)

it did. holy cow :-o.

actually it's a moose

painting by Jen Manning

(various bovine sounds)

once I got the partition tables squared away i was able to use the same toolset to repair the MBR, flags, etc. one of the partitions was healthy, so i was able to copy & paste it and onto a new USB drive before I even got windows to boot. the other two were not healthy but i was able to copy the entire file systems onto the drive as a backup as well.

a few reboots (more) back into into windows to restore the BCD and remap the drives according to how they were before i pulled everything two days earlier, and now i’m typing this to you on a the same drive i was about to give up on. it’s going to save me countless days of reinstalls and headaches. so right at the end after the ref blew his whistle and people started cashing life insurance checks, the swell of the music stopped and was replaced but the annoying whine of his fans and hard drives rattling so hard he was shaking. i helped plagus get back on his feet, smacked him around a little, and told him who’se #theboss. then i instructed him to setup all the recovery features and start backing up my entire life’s work onto 6 terabytes of external storage. imagine my shock to see he’s actually doing it. very slowly \m/~

musical risk with saint john

if you’re a listener of Rangounmuzzled or you’ve been following my facebook, twitter or reverbnation feeds, you already know that i’ve been playing musical #risk with Saint John for the last couple months.  using the bothell’s “The Hop and Hound” as our command headquarters, we’ve been waxing philosophic about the music scene in #seattle and dropping pieces on the map, then going out & playing live shows.
every show we play, together or independently, provides a set of measurements:  attendence, engagement, the sound system, the performance space, geospatial attributes of the club, the social accumen of the club owners and even the show schedule.  including whether or not they actually pay as they claim, because the unfortunate fact of the matter is that many promoters and bookers promise money that exists only in their minds.

“we didn’t collect enough at the door” – booking agent that had no social media coverage & never approved my tags

with roughly 250 shows behind him last year alone, saint john’s experience is different from my own, but here’s an unfortunate fact: the only shows that i’ve been paid at as promised, beyond drink tickets, are the ones i’ve booked myself.  and for the “songwriters unmuzzled” series that started to great success at the 192 Brewing Company here in sleepy little kenmore, i’m passing all the compensation directly through to the artists.  i wish i could pay them more, i fail to see why musicians should make any less than programmers because i understand they’re both very difficult and require rare talent to execute at a professional level.

i’ve had some excursions that tested my demographic boundaries, including talent shows and gigs in gay bars, trying to cultivate new fans and establish a foothold in clubs typically avoided by guys with guitars.  i claim only modest success here, but i left a few pieces on the map in each of the clubs i played.  such is musical #risk.

i’ve also had some unforgettable moments.  opening the black sheperd release party with soldier of rock Justin E Kautzman was a night i’ll never forget, and a privilege i’ll take with me to the crossroads.

Rango at the Black Sheperd CD Release

Rango at the Black Sheperd CD Releas

saint john’s game plan is a year ahead of mine, with established residencies ranging from open rehearsals to happy hours.  but the two of us have enjoyed a great reception when we play together.  for all his reserve and dramatic intensity, #rangothedog brings off-the-chain #swampy.  it’s a push and pull, ebb and flow that works well across multiple demographics so we’re planning to play more shows together and cross pollinate our fan bases, with a high confidence they’ll like what they hear (eventually).

our show together last night at The Admiral Benbow was a clear demonstration of this effect in play, as contacts of mine from my home town of Grand Rapids, Michigan met saint john’s carloads of fans, and everybody discovered we had something in common, something good.  and that’s really what it’s all about.

Saint John & friends at the Admiral Benbow

unfortunately for every win, there’s a sobering reality check.  i recently posted this on facebook, recycling an experience i’ve had over and over again in the first three months i’ve been gigging:

Rango Unmuzzled is on Reputation Radio

Rango Unmuzzled is on Reputation Radio

that venue circulated zero links to any of the artists,

and approved zero of the tags

in the days leading up to the show.

the booking agent did, the artists did, even their fans.

but the only people that showed up

were the artists and their fans.

without the support of the venue,

it’s not efficient or effective for anybody.

it’s shockingly common

in a town that pays musicians in beers

if they pay them at all,

where clubowners have legitimate complaints

about attendance at the shows.

“we can do better” – ‪#‎rangothedog‬

it’s true, we can do better.

the live shows are the most exciting part of this game, but there’s another win: integrating artists and content from the live shows into #rangounmuzzled, my indie radio show in rotation on the The Reputation Label / Reputation Radio Station, all over fandalism, soundcloud, and as far as your #roku on the tune-in channel (thank you, johnny!).

“we’re bringing it all together.  the clubs, the indies, the radio show” – #rangothedog, #rangounmuzzled 75

as i write this, it’s the last day of january, 2015.  the new year’s episode of #rangounmuzzled has already reached 6,700+ listeners across the world just on fandalism.  episode 75: apocalypse redux 2015 features the first of two interviews with saint john discussing our game of musical risk and search for #groundzero, recorded live at the 192 brewing company.

what’s to come in february & beyond?

more shows.  more pieces on the map.  more #risk.

operation rango: #risk

30,694 plays

This is a live capture of a reference take of Risk. It’s 100% solo guitar, originally rejected because it was inadvertently recorded on a randomly hanging microphone instead of direct from the amp. I ultimately changed my mind because the ambient sounds of my feet tapping and shuffling on the floor add to the live feeling of it. Produced for Into the Snow III, where rango loses a headcutting duel to the shredder from LA (the first take). little dancing, some psychedelia, and the second take is after the credits so make this face :-D and this one \m/ and this one :-o and then this one again :-D.

A high definition version of Gravity, the first complete music video from #rangothedog. Featuring remastered audio and blu-ray resolution high definition video, this video is a segment from Operation Rango: Into the Snow III, the third and final snowball in the Seattle Snowpocalypse trilogy (still working on it).

“the world needs a hero” – rango, into the snow III

Discover the reason why sticky gloves are important, and all things #somewhat spidery. A metal instrumental from my debut album Etherati, Gravity was composed to submit for soundtrack opportunities that needed to represent speed, acceleration and deceleration, car chases and airplane dogfights. Think coyote vs. road runner, red team vs blue team, with one guitar lead for each team, faster and faster until the downshift in the bridge. Then it breaks out and it’s anybody’s guess who will take it, with the possibility that they both might just crash & burn.

The video was designed to leverage my career as a ballet dancer and demonstrate the the fun and beauty of guitar kata. With homage to comedy great Harold Lloyd and the Emerald City of Seattle, Gravity leads with the observation that two things that are divergent can ultimately become one.

sir gigs alot / somewhat fail

tonight’s ‪#‎rangothedog‬ rant:

‪#‎gigging‬ 10 weeks now, none of the things i’ve worried about for years have been a problem. i’ve dropped my pick (just pawed at it), forgot my fanny pack (where i keep my picks), forgot my lyrics (mumbled something out) and forgot my gear (that’s why there’s two cameras & two guitars at every gig. i can’t afford two amps or two laptops but i would if i could).

actual problems:

Rango the Dog at Cellars

no sound checks
sparse crowds
indifferent owners
reciprocation ‪#‎fail‬
social media ignorance
football on tv’s
house music
sketchy people
rigged contests
promised but not paid
paid in [domestic] drinks
paid in drinks then overcharged
paid in overpriced drinks then complained at for not buying food

and my personal favorite:

the fact that i’ve been incorrectly introduced repeatedly as “mike”.

we can do better. at least we are unmuzzled.

#overheard on #facebook:

i’m not quitting, just upping my game,
 
and calling out the challenges.
 
the music is always the first challenge,
 
“get it right” – #rangothedog, all the time
 
but we have collective challenges,
 
and a unique, golden opportunity.
 
seattle is the cradle of the universe of #grunge.
 
Xana La Fuente knows this.
 
"we are spoiled" - rangothedog

“we are spoiled” – rangothedog

FM and TV are completely saturated with horrible, emotionless, overproduced shit. live music is where it’s at.

 
my facebook edge graph is 2 million people but only a few thousand of them are in seattle and only a few dozen friends here. my friends know who they are, and actual fans i can count on one hand but they get hugs every time.
 
as a community we have a voice. and we have an angle, i’m just not convinced we have the will. take my cameras to every show, and i review the whole show, every time. before and after, what people are saying in the audience when they think they’re not being recorded.
 
we need live streaming. xana is setting the pace here.
 
we need social media coherence and a touch of firehose. i’m doing my part but 99% of folks just watch.
 
sorry to go #meta, but if you listen to my show you get this. i’m writing this message to you on facebook, 70% of my social media graph, trying to get you off facebook. i’m sure Saint John would agree.
 
and you if you can’t get off it, then let’s produce the people that are and leverage the window of exposure we get from The Reputation Label and Reputation Radio Station and #roku and Rangounmuzzled and try to incent people to come out.
 
those that can’t, we could still give them product. but not until we solve some problems.
 
we are close to the edge. yes i love yes. sorry to #tautology \m/~

#policestate USA

Rango the Dog

Rango the Dog

One-world government conspiracy nuts are giving too much credit to people.  We’re not that smart, and the truth eventually leaks.  We couldn’t keep the Manhattan project secret, or anything else for that matter.

Despite my rants tonight on Twitter and Facebook about the #USA #policestate, I don’t believe that one-world conspiracy baloney for a second.  More realistically, our problem is not aliens, incomprehensible evil, or even casual indifference.  There are no sheeple, a stupid term from a condescending lot.

The problem is that we’re equally spoiled, violent, and ignorant.

On one axis we are a historically successful economic super power, able to leverage the yields of our predecessors through generations of changes to our economic systems, the benefits of their inertia, and refinements to our thinking.  We enjoy the fruits of their labors without even considering their sacrifice, much less enduring it.  We are spoiled.

"we are spoiled" - rangothedog

“we are spoiled” – rangothedog

On another axis, we are a people born of violence, children and grandchildren of a bloody revolution, culturally inbred into our spirit over generations.  During that time we have been constantly attacked, attacking ourselves, and returning the favor to the rest of the world.  We have been at war since our inception as a nation, and the entire world has shared the cost, and the benefit, of those sacrifices, with disproportionate allocations of grief and wheat.  We are violent.

Through the magic of abstraction we have also enjoyed the fruits of our labors and the sacrifices of those who came before, without knowing about them.  We have an embarrassing pantheon of leaders, pop stars and cultural icons built on history and luck, enjoying all the bliss with very little to say to contribute to the coherence of our relative tranquility since we were all enjoying the benefits of our rarefied position.  We are ignorant.

Today in the #policestate USA we have for-profit prisons, with the highest incarceration rate in the world.  We live routinely with cops as soldiers, armed and armored emissaries of the state, wielding chemical, electrical, and multiple forms of lethal ballistic weapons, both individually and en masse, with communications networks that allow them to conspire and swarm as commandos against innocent civilians and armed gangs with equal indifference to the law.  (Remember, cops are paid to uphold the law, not protect us).

tiananmen square, american style

tiananmen square, american style

Consequently we have military hardware on our streets, from personnel carriers to attack helicopters and unmanned drones, courtesy of the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD).  Nobody should be surprised, we gave them the authority to do it with open arms at the first sign of fear, when we realized that our ivory towers could fall.  But let me assert to you this:

Houston, we have a problem.  But it probably won’t become a problem until it affects you directly (and it will, soon enough, God forbid).  More people are going to die before it gets better.  This prediction is predicated on my own personal, subjective experiences, which would likely shock you, and the obtuse fact that more civilians have died in the #policestate USA at the hands of cops in the last 10 years than all the soldiers and civilians killed in both of our wars on terror combined.

Think about that.

What was the risk calculation going to war that day?  What is your risk calculation going to work today?

And what is the fundamental theorem of calculus, anyway?

Scratch that last question.  As i said, we’ve been giving the conspiracy theorists too much credit. But don’t scratch this one:

“What are we going to do about it?” – Dire Straits, Romeo & Juliet \m/~

World Premiere Video: Jack Mustard’s Dark Lit Bar

Having just enjoyed the carnal pleasure of a sneak preview of Mustard’s new video, Dark Lit Bar, these words ring more true today than the day they were posted on Facebook:

Jack Mustard

Jack Mustard

“I want to be Jack Mustard for a day.” – #rangothedog

There was already consensus around the initial uptake on the song Dark Lit Bar when it was rolled out on The Reputation Label’s RangoUnmuzzled radio show.  I can paraphrase it this way, based on comments heard from the women in our audience, all of which were unsolicited and some quite unseemly (keep ‘em coming):

That song is hot.

And indeed it is.  But the video punches up the heat to a completely different level by bringing a disruptive factor to the equation: Jack Mustard himself.  Take a phenomenal physique worthy of an MMA fighter, mix it with the the kind of charisma you’d expect on the late-night talk show circuit, add a hand-picked selection of female talent willing to drive home the point of his lyrics, and the outcome is red-hot.

Mind you, he does it with class, delivering the essentially sensual without crossing the line, in a manner that pays homage to Robert Palmer’s Simply Irresistible.  It’s tasteful, a hell of a production, and quite a privilege to view it first.  And it’s entirely possible Jack Mustard will end up a folk hero for his efforts, mark these words:

“That song was playing on the radio the day we met” – future parents

Ladies, you’ve been warned, please dress inappropriately before you go into Jack Mustard’s Dark Lit Bar \m/~
