Auroras

At first the auroras were faint and I passed time trying to capture some Geminid meteors. The auroras then picked up and formed a nearly fixed but intense green arch, which after ca 30min started parting into several arches and a somewhat more intricate pattern. The auroras were slow moving, but on a few occasions grew more intense and started flickering. I noted approximately 40 Gemenids, one of which can be seen in the photos.

Podcast Series

podcast-flying-ninjassmall.jpg

Many of you may remember the first podcast that our ninja kookiekrumbles from the main site dropped a little while back - and how it wasn’t really a podcast yet, but just a [pretty siiick] mixtape we had posted for your auditory pleasure.

Well now we’ve got the next in what will from here on out be a more regular podcast series - yes, a real podcast now.AA A mix by our very own MUSIC NINJA TRIZLAM should be up, and soon followed by a mix by our in house DJ, DJ WHITE LABEL We’ll have a link to follow posted somewhere soon enough, but for now all you have to do is follow these simple steps:

open itunes

click podcasts

click the ‘advanced’ menu and select ‘subscribe to podcast…’

copy this URL into the window that opens:

music.myninjaplease.com/podcasts/myninjapleaseradio.xml

Now simply download the existing podcasts, and enjoy. When the next in the series comes out, your itunes should be automatically updated.

Enjoy, my ninjas.

Bacterial Orchestra


At the grand opening of Bacterial Orchestra at New Media Meeting in NorrkAAping all expectations were surpassed. Our organism truly had a life of its own. It developed to be resistant still adaptive. It rarely did what we expected.

The experiment was conducted in a underground corridor in connection to the other activities. The laborative site was perfect. The reverberation from the naked stone walls and the concrete floor transported weak sounds to distant cells.

A constant dripping from the roof provided a constant, silent base rhythm for the organism when the organism was left in silence.

The reverberation of the room also provided an opportunity for the organism to break the rules we had tried to enforce on it.

The cells are programmed to die from too loud impulses. But as it turned out the acoustics led to swelling, resonant sounds with no impulse. These sounds could grow and grow creating quite a noise from time to time. When one cell picked up one of these sounds, all the others were infected. Clearly the epidemic didna€™t want to be controlleda€¦

Luxury good sanctions for Venezuela?

Kim Jong-il is to have his access to iPods and other desirable gadgets cut off as part of US efforts to target sanctions directly at the North Korean leader and his power base.

Aside from his own personal use, Kim is said to use gifts of Western consumer goods to reward loyal government officials.

So, the apparent US logic goes, restricting his access to such goods will help to erode his power base.

"Anglo Saxons came to Australia in chains," he told the chat show Cairo Today, "while we paid our way and came in freedom. We are more Australian than them. Australia is not an Anglo-Saxon country - Islam has deep roots in Australian soil that were there before the English arrived."

"I do think you should ask a couple of questions: Do you hate Australians and do you believe in the Western way of life? We should stop the 50% Australians. If you want to be an Australian then get rid of your other passports."
