the GENO show: You're my BOY, Geno!

One of the few shining stars of AKARadio known only to his adoring fans as Geno has graduated to the next level of internet radio greatness. The Geno Show, a recent big hit ever it hit the internet radio scene at AKARadio will be doing the same thing it’s always been up to (that is to say playing the absolute best selections from emo, punk and ska) with one minor exception. As of the 27th, he will be doing so to a much larger audience.  In what is quite a coup, Geno has secured a slot on the internet’s largest punk radio station, RantRadio: Punk!.  You can check it out as always from 10-12 Friday Nights (times EST) on RantRadio: Punk! now. There are rumors of further syndication since his joining of the “Pirate This! Radio Network,” known for syndicating the famed Mark and Darrell show. You can be sure that we will report such news as soon as we learn of it here at rizzn.com Check out the Geno Show website for updates and details: here....

Accusations auf AKAradio

I feel it’s my responsibility to report this information to the public, as there continues to be a smear campaign targeting my good name in effect from AKA.  I’m not certain if it’s a conscious effort to target me, or is a result from misguided community pride on AKA’s part.  Regardless, it is crossing into territory dangerously close to harassment and slander/libel. Witness: it is no secret that I wrote scripts which for the good of the community propped up the programming to ensure it extended 24 hours a day.  Between the two computers in my office devoted to that, there was always some automated script firing off.  The ways these scripts launched were wide and varied… some were custom applications, some were bought applications, some were launched from “Scheduled Tasks” in Windows, some were “StartUp Tasks” in Windows. Spread those different methods across 2-3 computers and you’ve got a lot of clean-up to do.  Despite all the clean-up there was to do, I missed all but two or three scripts.  They were: 1) the script that uploads the Jimmy Factor at 3AM daily until all the archives were moved from my computer to the server, 2) the bot which broadcasts Off The Hook, & 3) Trillian, which unbeknownst to me was trying to log in of it’s own accord. Obviously none of these things will work.  My IP has been banned from the server since before my show was.  If that wasn’t enough to keep me out, the passwords have been changed. If I was trying to hack you idiots, do you think you’d even know about it?  Do...

AKA Radio looks dead

I got up this morning a little late, went to the bank, then went and paid my rent… thus I was a bit late this morning. Went to go look at the schedule on AKA radio to see if they fired my friends along with me. Apparently, the whole station was fired!  The site has been taken down and the stream is down.  It says it’ll be back soon after messages.  Hrm. I’m not even going to enter the IRC room.  Maybe I’ll get James to try to go in there and see if it’s up. I can’t say I’m real broken up over it.  It’s what you get for censoring me.  When you outright lie about and slander me for 3 hours straight, you’re bound to reap some reward for that. /rizzn I just realized that you readers of the site don’t know what’s going on.  Let me boil this down to a nutshell explanation, since I’m tired of telling the story. Last Monday, I was on You’re Wrong on AKA radio.  The panel members couldn’t figure out how to debate or go 20 minutes without insulting either Leo or Myself. Last Tuesday, I contracted a severe chest cold.  I wrote what was perhaps a somewhat brash forum post on the AKA forums that still contained a point that was not insulting, merely constructive criticism. Last Wednesday, I resigned from the You’re Wrong panel.  They weren’t getting the picture.  They were making up their own drama instead of reading the simple words I was typing. Last Friday, I resigned as Program Director of AKA Radio and withdrew the...

Al Heirich Update

Al, you ignorant fsck,   You didn’t have my site taken down, the domain expired (although, I am pleased to see you finally got my name right).   My calling you on the phone was neither criminal, harassing, nor anything to do with my website.   No one spit on the soldiers, and if there was spitting involved, it certainly wasn’t Matthew.  I can tell you this because I have known Matthew since I was 14 years old.  The only time he has spit on anyone was perhaps when getting a bit excited while talking and spittle flew from his mouth inadvertantly.   This is a word of warning.  Rizzn.com is a protected subsidiary of Vision-MicroPro Industries, and if you steal it you will be subject to a civil copyright protection suit. If you are responsible for the difficulty in dealing with ehostpros that I’ve had lately, I’ll make sure to include you on the damages suit against them, as well as perhaps a slander suit.   I’d like you to explain how I’ve tried to harass you.  All I’ve done is try to get you present in a cogent, non-polemic way, your point of view.   You’ve made up tons of facts along the way, you’ve hurtled tons of false accusations, and all I’ve done is broadcast them to the world.  You, my friend, are the one that has ended up looking like a moron.  As I’ve always said, the offer is on the table to explain yourself on my show.   Oh, and FYI, your case has no legal standing.  All of my phone calls are documented and...

Al Heirich/Rizzn is a Terrorist Update

If you click on the terrorist update link, you’ll get the full scoop … but there’s a response posted to my article chronicling the Al Heirich/Riz is a “terrorist” saga.  Al Writes:A few points from Al Heirich1) My original letter was in protest of how the Peace Monkeys treated our soldiers after the parade was over and had nothing to do with thier float. For the record, the Monkeys got drunk after the parade and began spitting on Soldiers and berating them with profanity.2) One of the soldiers was my younger sister. Enough said.3) After my commentary, the phone calls began coming in from Rizz’n and his friends. After a threat from one of these folks, I turned it over to the local District Attorney and one of my companies for investigation.4) I don’t own the e-mail addresses he claims came from me. 5) His posting of my commentary is in violation of the Telluride Daily Planet,s copyright which he tried to acquire to no avail. A restraining order has been requested in San Miguel County Court to keep this gentleman from continuing to harass us.Thank you for the opportunity to clear this up.Al Heirich I respond:Hey Mental Midget1) If Matthew spit on anyone I would be deeply shocked.  Given your reputation in the Telluride area, I take your accusations about as seriously as I would a bum off the street.2) See point one.3) This is a multi-parter.  Hold on to your panties.a. Spell my name right.  Neither you nor your lawyer can spell it right.  It’s not Rizz’n, its not Rizzen, it’s RIZZN.  SEE THE DAMN DOMAIN NAME! b....

Terminally late.

The problem with someone like me who is terminally late is when I’m actually on time, and no one notices, no one believes me. Yesterday, Leo told me that 11:00 is too late to come in, be on time. I got caught behind the bridge today, so I was in at 10:14, according to the clock in my car.  Unfortunately no one saw me until 11:45… so I was late. I’m not sure how that’s possible, since it’s just now 11:47, but still. Perception is reality. Let’s backtrack a little bit.  It’s 11:48 as of this sentence.  My WinAmp says it’s been running for 78 minutes. That means I loaded the WinAmp stream at 10:30.  Before I came into my office, I fixed a problem on the printer, which took me around 10 minutes, which puts me at 10:20.  I checked my email and responded to IMs before I loaded WinAmp, that puts me in about 5 minutes earlier than what WinAmp says. That’s 10:15.  Pretty close to what I said.  However, that’s not what was observed by my partners, so it’s not what reality is.  Reality is I got chewed out like a minimum wage slave for being late. How you see things isn’t always correct.  Don’t always assume you are correct. /rizzn Now playing: DJ Tiesto – Live at Club Space 08-18-2002 (AKAradio.com: Dr SoNy AnD bLaCk IcE’s TaCo...

200 Jews leave France for Israel

Two hundred Jews from France boarded a flight to Tel Aviv Wednesday to make Israel their new home, the BBC reported. About 2,000 French Jews emigrate to Israel every year for religious reasons, to find work and some because they say the fear of anti-Semitic attack has made their lives intolerable. But Wednesday’s exodus only further frosted relations between France and Israel, the report said. France was outraged earlier this month when a young woman who is not Jewish made up a story about how Muslim youths who thought she was Jewish attacked her on a subway. Before she recanted and said she made it all up for attention, French President Jacques Chirac made a personal pledge to clamp down on anti-Semitism. Days later, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon infuriated Chirac when he called on French Jews to flee the country and seek refuge in Israel. Sharon was scheduled to personally greet the 200 emigrants in Tel Aviv, the report said. Now playing: Jet – Will You Be My Girl? (AKAradio.com: Judo’s Radio...

Ric Flair for President

[Rizzn’s Note: I was writing a letter to Joel explaining my choice for president this year, decided to look up some keywords from my letter, and I found an article written in November of 1999 saying what I’ve been saying much more elequently.] Ric Flair for PresidentDAVID DOUGLASS I don’t follow professional wrestling. But like so many other Americans, I get the distinct feeling that professional wrestling is somehow following me. With all the fanfare surrounding the election of former professional wrestler, Jessie “The Body” Ventura, as Governor of the state of Minnesota, I couldn’t help but wonder what the United States would be like if it were governed by well-tanned hulks in flamboyant ski masks and star-studded Evel Knievel capes. As a start, someone like wrestling icon Ric Flair should be elected President. Anyone who can withstand twenty-plus years of ultraviolet radiation and an ocean of peroxide could easily swim among the most vicious political sharks that Capital Hill can muster. It goes without saying that the State of the Union addresses would certainly be far more interesting. The nation would be riveted to its television screens as Flair teeters atop the executive podium, neck veins pulsating, threatening Congress with everything from flying knee drops to scorpion death locks. At the conclusion of his speech, he would repeatedly smash the teleprompter with a folding chair and then swiftly exit the Senate chamber under the escort of scantily clad, surgically enhanced “wrestler babes.” Now that’s government in action! I am of the opinion that wrestlers would handle the press far better than your average, run-of-the-mill politician. I mean, what do...

Win Mark Hopkins' CASH MONEY with the Mark and Darrell Show

The MARK and DARRELL show is on from 8-Midnight EST on SundaysTune into http://akaradio.com to listen!(if the servers are full, try http://rantradio.com‘s talk station) Do you want Cash?  Do you want money?  Then you need to play the PROMOTE teh Mark and Darrell Show game! How do you play, you might ask?  Very simple! We’re giving out a total of 275 buckaroos.  That’s a lot of visits to the hookers down the hall, my friend.  $50 : goes to the person with the most creative idea for promoting the show. $50 : goes to the person the runner up of the individual who brings the most listeners to the show$100 : goes to the person who brings the most listeners to the show.   $2 : extra bonus from Kyle if you are trailer trash babe. $25 : extra bonus from Kyle if it involves boobs. All individuals will be judged by the (arbitrary and capricious) Mark and Darrell Show Panel.  The person bringing in listeners will be expected to provide some sort of documentation of how they brought in that many listeners. This means if you brought in what you estimate as 3000 listeners by painting portraits of Darrell and I on a water tower, then I expect at least a photo of said watertower. Likewise, if you are caught on CNN trying to assasinate the Prime Minister of Khazakstan, and while being arrested you yell out “Mark and Darrell Rules, goto RIZZN.COM”, I expect a copy of the news reel. Bookmark this site for contest updates.  The run for this contest is open, but is tentatively set to be about a month....

Mystery Creature Lurks In Central Maryland

[Rizzn’s Note: I’m not seeing any real coverage of this, nor am I seeing any other websites talking about this.  I heard it on the radio this month and found ONE website on google news that had the story] [original link: http://www.wnbc.com/news/3545383/detail.html] [link to video(FIXED): http://rizzn.net/rizznnethoyote.wmv – if you link it directly, please include a link to rizzn.net or rizzn.com, kthnx] [update: Just so this gets indexed properly, the preferred spelling seems to be “Hyote” even though Coyote is pronounced with the same sounding, people can’t seem to remember that, so they take the “o” out.  I prefer my gramatically superior spelling, but so I’ll be indexed properly by people searching out the story, I’ll spell it “Hyote” again here.] GLYNDON, Md. — A mystery animal is on the loose in Baltimore County and not even the experts can pin down what it is. A Glyndon man found a way to secretly record the beast while it grazed in his yard. For a while it was just lurking in the woods watching the Wroe family until the Wroes started watching it. Jay Wroe: “My truck was parked here, started getting in my truck. I kind of saw it there where the sunlight is and said what in the world is that?” Jacob Wroe: “It looked so weird to me. I didn’t know what it was.” Wanting to get a better look at the beast stalking his family, Jay Wroe put technology to work for him. Jay Wroe: “The next day, I hooked up just portable motion detectors, and put them down back in the woods there.” The trap worked. Jay...

Lack of Content

I realize I haven’t been updating, but as usual I’m over-extended.  You wouldn’t believe how much time c-m takes up.  But I enjoy what I do. I also added a great deal of historical content from 1999 into the blog.  Scroll thru some of the archives from that year.  There’s a couple amusing bits in there. I’m slowly remembering where a lot of old content that can go on here is. And I’m also fighting with the idea of putting a certain private journal online. I have this journal I did when Stacy and I were together, and it really shows another side of me, and I don’t know if I want to put it on here or not.  The biggest reason is I still think of Stacy fondly (especially since we’ve mended fences), and the journal doesn’t really paint her in a fond light.  I don’t think she’d ever read it on here, and furthermore, she has read the paper version, but still, something about it doesn’t feel right about putting it online. I doubt I have enough regular readers that would warrant a vote on the  issue, but if you feel strongly about this, go ahead and write me. I have another design idea I’m toying with — I’m thinking about pushing the content down another 100 or 200 pixels.  Well, probably more like 300 pixels… something like that … and making a graphic frontpage thing that showcases different sets of blog entries… especially since I’m putting in old materials on and actually getting some real entries in here. Ah well, that’s all I can think of...

theShit and I are on a Terrorist Watchlist!

IntroductionI have a feeling this is going to be the start of a very entertaining saga at the very least, so pay attention, folks. This story starts with a parade in Telluride, Colorado, in which some local peace-niks put a float in the parade demonstrating their distaste for war, and ends with a friend of mine (a Levite Jew), and myself (a software executive 5000 miles away) supposedly being placed on a terrorist watch-list. I’ve updated the story’s format to make it a bit more readable, and I’m changing the format of the site a bit for the same reason, but the same essential content is here, and nothing has been edited or changed from it’s original format. If you would like to see original copies of all emails, I will send them to you upon request. Why am I putting this story out there so plainly? Well, part of it is revenge, part of it is preventative medicine, part of it is fighting fire with fire, and part of it is a legitimate fear I have of this thing getting stupid and me being stuck with a black mark on my record that’ll prevent me from having opportunities I’m otherwise qualified for in my future. I want to be first to market with this story. I realize that right now, other than this news story, my front page has an amazing right tilt at the moment. For you newcomers to my site, I yo-yo back and forth on the political spectrum, and I can’t really classify myself as conservative or liberal… I’m essentially for whatever platform ends classism...
