Scrub Club’s 8-bit Bullshit

Posted in Infornography on 2007.05.27 by Jacinto Quesnel

Voy a hablar de unos vatos de Wichita mejor conocidos como: “Scrub Club and the No Dough Movement“. Raperos, Gamers de corazón, y Grilleros.

8 Bit Bullshit
El movimiento del No Dough (No Varo) quiere decir que ningún artista en la disquera, ni siquiera MadHatter, el cabecilla de esta guerrilla nerd, hace un solo centavo de la música. Todo lo que sacan se va directamente a mercenarios, comprar más equipo y y mercancía. Eso si que es amor. Como que todos somos bien pobres y ellos lo saben, así que nos regalan sus albums en el sitio web, y hasta las playeras están casi al costo. Así que puedes pimpiarte con la cadenita de metal con el logo de que estas bien roto y escuchar su excelente rap.

Ellos se identifican con el Hip Hop original, el de la calle y el barrio. Y como la mayoría de quienes compartimos su situación se deslindan por completo del Hip Hop que puedes ver en Mtv y escuchar en los antros de Cancún. Pero además son amantes de los videojuegos, igual que nosotros, así que no solo hablan de politica y hambre, te soplan rap en tus viejos cartuchos del NES.

Si te interesa escucharlos te recomiendo que empieces por 8-bit Bullshit que está cargado de 11 rolas basadas en tus juegos favoritos de Nintendo desde la perspectiva del personaje principal. Comedia, si, del tipo que haría que la cabeza de Stephen Hawking estallara de felicidad.

Nerdcore: It’s revenge of the nerds for realz

I am so into Nerdcore. Anything that promotes nerds is great by me. Nerds do deserve more respect!! Check out this hilarious and at times uncomfortable doc trailer:

Gallery Assistant

Posted in Infornography, Memoirs, Silhouette on 2007.05.15 by Jacinto Quesnel

I NEED WORK!

I AM LOOKING FOR A POSITION AS A GALLERY (DIRECTOR/CURATOR) ASSISTANT.

» Job description

A museum/art gallery curator acquires, cares for, develops, displays and interprets a collection of artefacts or works of art in order to inform, educate and entertain the public.

The emphasis of the role is moving away from a purely academic research function towards a wider-ranging career, which includes aspects such as:

  • public relations;
  • fundraising;
  • handling enquiries;
  • education and access activities.

There is growing pressure for museums, galleries and other heritage and tourism attractions to work together to share expertise. When organising exhibitions, therefore, curators need to market them appropriately to ensure they appeal to a wide cross-section of the general public, including overseas tourists.

» Typical work activities

Typical work activities include:

  • cataloguing acquisitions and keeping records;
  • researching and writing catalogues;
  • planning, organising, interpreting and presenting exhibitions;
  • caring for the collection;
  • negotiating loan items and funding;
  • handling enquiries from researchers and the public;
  • planning financial budgets;
  • supervising staff and/or volunteers;
  • giving presentations;
  • talking to individuals and groups about exhibits;
  • dealing with enquiries from a variety of clients;
  • liaising with voluntary groups, the community (including schools, local history and other groups), industry, and grant agencies to secure sponsorship for events, publications and development projects;
  • liaising with management boards, trustees and local council and political groups to secure ongoing support;
  • networking with other museum and art gallery professionals and outside agencies, through meetings and collaborative projects.

More and more time can be spent on the financial aspects of running departments. This means that less time is available for managing collections and the central research element of the job is now only likely to be done either in preparation for exhibitions or in response to public enquiries. The days of narrow specialisation have largely gone.
