Radio and Podcasts

My fascination for radio and the medium as a whole is almost as expanse as my newspaper/magazine reading. I started listening when I was 7 years old.

I usually listen and read so many things to the point of overload.

Radio stations I usually listen to:

570 WTNT (defunct)

820AM The Gamut

740AM Zoomer Radio

770AM WABC

1180AM WHAM

1030AM WBZ

88.5FM WMAU

88.3FM WBGO

100.3FM WBIG

Radio shows I oftentimes listen(ed) to:

Matt Drudge: The Drudge Report (defunct)

Truckin’ Bozo

Coast to Coast AM

The Sean Hannity Show

The Savage Nation

Ground Zero

Mark Levin

Shortwave:

When I was younger and in school I’d get home and listen to the shortwave/am and listen till I went to sleep at 10pm or 11pm. This was way back when the internet was not ubiquitous and I didn’t even have a computer at home.

I’d sit and try to pick up whatever I could. I became fascinated with the curious pop up stations that repeated numbers in Spanish and Russian as well as other languages. The aptly named: Number stations.

This scanning of stations instilled the desire to learn languages as I desired to understand what I heard over the various stations on shortwave.

I still carry my shortwave radio and people ask me all the time what I’m doing as I shift around to obtain reception. I enjoy the conversations that come due to my radio listening.

Hebrew and Egyptian Gematria; Space Docker and Mural Observations

This came to me due to seeing the background of this TED talk about 32 common symbols on caves:

My first thought was actually, “Is this a TED talk about Mount Chiliad? Geez, its finally come to this–oh, wait.”

MountChiliadMystery-GTAV-WallMarking

Going off what the game states, the answer is right in front of us:

m5zxdzc

I remembered of how I have always thought the alleged ‘jetpack man’ on the Chiliad mural:

always looked like the Hebrew letter ‘gimel’:


Which then reminded me about Hebrew gematria and Hebrew Otiot.

Which led to some curious observations.

Gimel’s gamtria is the number 3. Which reminds me of the three playable characters. Its otiot is a person in motion–a poor man running and it also means camel. Its root means to give, to deal or to wean. Justified Repayment. To give either reward or punishment.

Which of course reminds me of Michael have to repay some money. That they had to run–put him in witness protection, etc.

So seeing that I looked at the ‘UFO’

and thought of the hand of Hamsa:

800px-khamsa

which means that “humans cannot escape from the eye of conscience” which reminds me of Trevor. Also interesting usage of hamsa is the fifth day of the week, “Thursday is considered a good day for magic rites and pilgrimages.” Which I thought may indicate that yoga or Epsilon robes should be attempted on Thursday?

I thought of the ‘egg’:

of “He is risen” the sunrise, etc.

It reminded me of Khepri:

khepri-2

God of rebirth and the sunrise. Associated with the Scarab beetle–the dung beetle:

110115_sm_dung-beetle_free

that navigates via the milky way.

I thought of the Space docker which is a dune buggy

SpaceDocker-Front-GTAV

and how the Egyptians thought the eggs of the beetle came into being out of nothing. Possibly take the Space Docker on a Thursday?

I also recalled the Hebrew pictographs:

hebrewpictographchart

when I saw the glyph on the Space Docker:

zonczxg

If I’m not mistaken it reads (from right to left):

Pey, Pey, Lamed, Tzadiel, Khaf, Hey, Pey, Dalet Pey

17, 4, 17, 5, 20, 90, 30, 17, 17

Remember every letter is a number and has a mystery:

Here’s more about Hebrew letters as numbers.

I thought of the ‘x’ on the mural (which could be the Hebrew letter) and thought of Teth which reveals both good and evil, a man in rebellion or a man in surrender. Teth represents the Number 9 and also 15.

So could the answer, instructions or more clues come in this form.

Am I seeing what I want to see or is this viable?

Can it be Pareidolia because I know Hebrew letters and I am making it work?

I hope this is something or triggers someone’s mind to a solution, etc.

Radiation…it’s here.

I think people are downplaying radiation popping up around the USA and other parts of the world. – dmotion, 27 March 2011

The time for downplaying is over. This is a disaster getting worse. There is snow in Missouri with double the radiation and in San Francisco a beach with five times the normal radiation.

You have Japan sending in homeless people on basically what I consider a suicide mission to ‘clean up’ the spill. Not to mention steam rising from reactor 3 and its origin yet unknown.

There is no sense of alert or urgency in the international community or outrage for the obvious misleading of the radiation levels.

Then there’s the crew of USS Ronald Reagan which

…sailed straight into a plume of radioactivity, which entered the ship’s water supply. Crew members washed, brushed their teeth and drank potentially contaminated water. […] active duty and former sailors are suffering from cancer, blindness, impotence, and fatigue as a result of the radiation exposure.

At what point is the international community going to wake up and see that this disaster is trying to be swept underneath the rug?

You also have certain inauspicious movements by The Department of Health and Human Services in the US ordering 14 million doses of potassium iodide to be delivered in the beginning of February 2014.

All of these things are a harbinger–of a horrible situation that can be that much less horrible if dealt with now and not when all there is to do is hope.

111 Days of Xbox 360

I’ve been an extremely late adopter to the Xbox 360 and 111 days later I can tell you I’m impressed.

I got my Xbox on a whim on eBay for a whopping $40 with literally nothing–no hard drive,  no power cords, no a/v cables et cetera. It took me a couple days to find the 12.1amps power adapter to fit the “Jasper” Xbox I had obtained.

I went to an electronic parts store, bought the power adapter and picked up the original composite cables. I looked up the serial # and found it had a warranty till January 2013 and wasn’t banned. I was overjoyed. I had originally planned to purchase an Xbox at the time of the release of  “Splinter Cell: Conviction” and the bundle it came with back in April 2010.

 

Then I decided to wait to see if  Ubisoft ported it to the PS3 at a later date. However they didn’t and I argued one game for one console…eh… –but for $40 why not?

I already had “Splinter Cell: Conviction” Collector’s Edition.

 

 

I was fortunate though I had purchased the game via OnLive and had been playing it for a year on the service having logged 137 hours on Splinter Cell. The quality for OnLive games varies on one’s bandwidth and other variables as well however the picture displayed is surprisingly very good. I am not to fond of the keyboard controls–at least for this game and opted to buy a wired Xbox 360 controller to play via OnLive. (I think Microsoft should acquire OnLive and implement it’s infrastructure to the console. They can afterwards polish it up. The subscription playpack would be paid for by Xbox live and the on demand games would truly be on-demand playable within seconds.)

So when I obtained the Xbox 360 I had a controller and one game.

After acquiring it I decided I would play solely the exclusives on the System and that I did. Previously I had desired to Play Fable II and Fable III  having seen the adverts to it…same thing for the Gears of War trilogy–soon to be four.

I have played the Xbox more in 3 months than I have the PS3 in a whole year.

Games I’ve Recently Played:

The multiplayer match-ups, the xbox party features and UI aesthetics have  left me repentant as to why I had not purchased one sooner.

My only gripes would be load times are longer (at least you don’t have the mandatory install thing like PS3)–the pop up/in graphics, the occasional hiccup freezes and how loud the Xbox is in general.

Although these things I have easily accustomed at the beginning were annoying.

Also the achievements make playing video games, games in and of themselves. Yes, PS3 has trophies but they are not as evident or spotlighted.

I am happy to say that in these few short months the Xbox has become my console of choice and I’m looking forward to playing some of the upcoming titles:

Nostalgia

I typed on My Hermes Rocket Typewriter the other day.

Funny I did it because I don’t have a printer(–yes, its bad I know. In this day and age…). Yet it made the process of typing all the more worthwhile. Insomuch I actually posted something. Madonn.

I love my Hermes Rocket. If one day computers ceased (…yes, the horror) I’d be fine typing away on my typewriter.

Which reminds me I need to finish typing my novel on it. Anyways…

Which brings me to this…I bought a Motorola Razr…

No, not that Razr.

This Razr:

–The Motorola Razr V3 Matte Black. Although the Droid Razr is very nice, its rather a wee bit large for my taste. Beside all other things I’d like to have it but probably Verizon won’t let me. Even if they did I don’t much like the $299.99 price tag. Who knows, maybe in six years I’ll buy it! Look at the price drop of the V3 Matte Black:

Indeed .

“Why?” you ask would I purchase such device in 2011–almost 2012…probably for the same reason I bought the Hermes Typerwriter.

Nostalgia.

Yeah, I’m going to use it. I like the fact that it’s a GSM Quad Band phone–although that fact may not be so useful as before as I am no longer employed by the airline and don’t travel outside the Continental USA that much anymore. Although if I go to Canada or even Puerto Rico again (although my Virgin Mobile phone worked perfectly there. Oh, I miss thee Puerto Rico). But overall it’s form factor and nostalgia.

Plus I’m kind of tired of the whole smartphone thing too. I totally blame the iPhone and AT&T for that. Mostly AT&T–yeah,  AT&T. As I couldn’t even use the phone part of the iPhone 85% of the time.

I was going to just use my iPhone 3G on T-Mobile but that wouldn’t be as much fun. Maybe I’ll have to buy an iPhone 2G. ^_^

iPhone 5 Prepaid

I think it’s a long time coming.

If the iPhone 5 comes out with the option of being prepaid it will be impressive to see the sales along with the usual contract sales which in and of themselves will be impressive.

I’d even think about getting an iPhone despite my turn off by AT&T and the whole experience I had.

It’s definitely unsailed waters.

Mars is Green?

So I haven’t written anything in almost a year.

Now Mars is Green?

Yeah.  Mars is Green and dmotion is The Green Face.

Almost six years ago I was just dmotion: Investigating, and Then Commanding–now: Mars is Green: Sage Oversight is Renaissance.

It’s taken me almost six years to decide on a domain name and actually go ahead with it. (Among other things.)

The name–the statement: Mars is Green is what this is.

Mars–in Roman mythology (Ares in Greek) is the God of War and an agricultural guardian. Both which require oversight–sage oversight.

Green is associated with rebirth–renaissance…

This is my rebirth per se…

My rekindling of this site.

(Also Spike Spiegel is from Mars. I like Mars. I like green and I like stuff being green. Had to make it work.)
