Zyklon Zombies B, Life and Death Work

Crawling Chaos: Zyklon B Zombies Work

Back along, Crawling Chaos were asked by Curly Jhon and Mackie to do some background music for a performance they intended to do under their moniker Zyklon B Zombies.  The performance was called Dionysian Heights, the name appearing as a band name on the Foetus Products’ compilation Blood Samples From The Pox Clinic.

I’ve just found a tape with most of the performance on it……    So I’m digitising it for release.  And pretty cool it is too.  Watch this space!

The tape is the actual performance tape, I think, with the first minute or two being either my old racing car noises, some set-up test tones for, and the final major bounce track (sans vocals) of “Sex Machine”.  This latter is actually very, very good, and shows the guitar overdubs done by Jeff (Doomage Khult) very clearly and wonderfully – I may release this as it is just so folks can hear the guitar work.

The Actual Performance

Curly Jhon (CJ) has recently found a photo of one of his props.  It’s a little white bull, prior to its coat of gold paint.  I mentioned it here last month on the Crawling Chaos website…    Curly John Pops Up with Dionysian Heights Props

Other stuff I recall is heaps of ivy and copious amounts of offal.   The guys were doing some sort of Dionysian re-enactment for folks’ entertainment.  The offal stunk under the hot lights.  Bacchus was in on it as well….

Description of the Music

The two pieces Jeff & I created are called “Life” and “Death” and the boys used them as they saw fit, synchronising it with their dialogue and actions.  CJ & Mackie directed us, in a general way, as to the feel of the sounds for a given amount of time.  Hence each section is fairly drawn and thus doesn’t particularly matter too much where it’s fed in or out as the performance demanded.

Q.    Why have I called this post “Zyklon Zombies B, Life and Death Work”?

A.    Because that’s what’s written on the tape!  Jeff’s handwriting.

SANS Top 25 Most Dangerous Programming Errors

2009 CWE/SANS Top 25 Most Dangerous Programming Errors

The US Department of “Homeland” “Security” has helped line up a list of common programming errors for all of us to watch out for!

This is nice, but misleading in that it’s not really the US or a homeland that is affected by these lapses, is it?  It’s yer normal Auntie Mavis or Joe the Plumber.  They’re the ones particularly affected.  And it’s not just the US either.  It affects millions worldwide and is more of a personal security thing.

Of course, more organisations than the “homeland security” lot were involved – it’s just that certain news reports from some organisations tended to highlight it, so why shouldn’t I?

Anyway & whatever, the link is highly useful.

When you fire it up, navigate to an appropriate section  and click the section title e.g.

CWE-20: Improper Input Validation

This will then take you to detailed descriptions with several coded examples in various languages, like C, Java and PHP.

It’s very good, actually.  So I’m off to check right now…  ;-)

The SANS description of the project along with various commentaries and links is here: Experts Announce Agreement on the 25 Most Dangerous Programming Errors – And How to Fix Them Agreement Will Change How Organizations Buy Software.
