I found out yesterday that George Hotz, the hacker most known for unlocking the original iPhone and hacking the PS3, is now studying at my alma mater, Carnegie Mellon University. CMU has a bash.org clone for saving ridiculous quotes in IRC and around the computer science campus, and geohot already has some great ones in there.

amwatson: George, you have to start working on the assignment! If you don't, you won't have time to run on the supercomputer!
geohot: Don't worry. I have my own supercomputer!
amwatson: ...You have your own 256-core machine?
geohot: Yeah! Well, I have a botnet...

<geohot> I'm permitted to own Sony products. I'm just not permitted to touch them inappropriately.

< Tony0> I like geohot's method of forcing himself to suck less with vim
< Tony0> apparently he rebound the arrow keys to backspace.
< gwillen> I,I vim is properly appreciated in the original Klingon

Oh, geohot! More great quotes at cmubash.org. Thanks, Dannel!

How Do You Draw Hitler Without A Moustache?

The secret to drawing Hitler without a moustache is to draw Hitler with a moustache and erase the moustache afterwards. Honestly, it's the only way. Otherwise you're just drawing a bloke with an emo haircut.

This weekend marks the release of the first new Studio Ghibli film on U.S. screens since 2009. It’s called The Secret World of Arriety and besides being a very sweet, enjoyable film, the title is also a great way to describe the world of Ghibli itself. Everything about their productions is shrouded in secrecy. Then, one day, as if by magic, a lovely movie appears, beautifully animated for the world to see.

Due to that level of secrecy, it’s rare that any worthwhile information on a Ghibli project pops up before it’s good and ready. But today it has. After the jump, read some information about a Ghibli project involving a samurai and another potentially by the director of Evangelion.

The below information comes from the Anime News Network via Bleeding Cool.

First up, a Ghibli producer revealed that Hayao Miyazaki’s son, Goro Miyazaki (who directed Ghibli’s latest film to be released in Japan, From up on Poppy Hill) is working on a samuari period film that blends fact and fiction and takes place “in the northeastern Tohoku region of Japan during the Middle Ages.” A Ghibli samurai movie. Sold.

Next up, Evangelion director Hideaki Anno is curating an exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo on Japanese special effects. This is important because of the following information form another Ghibli employee:

“Director A” and “Director H” attended a meeting about an exhibition that “Director A” is supervising for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo this summer. A major highlight of the exhibition will be a new film work specifically made for the event.

Director A assuredly has to be Anno, so there’s another project. Whether or not it’ll be a full on Ghibli production or a more straight-forwards documentary to accompany the exhibit, however, is still a mystery.

And finally, the article reveals Hayao Miyazaki‘s latest film will likely be ready sometime in 2013.

What do you think about these projects? Any stand out to you?

““The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and somthing else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case.””

“Perhaps most people in the world aren’t trying to be free, Kafka. They just think they are. It’s all an illusion. If they really were set free, most people would be in a real pickle. You’d better remember that. People actually prefer not being free.”
