Christos Ballas ("TLP", archive

Sunday, 14 July, Year 11 d.Tr. | Author: Mircea Popescu

By cause already mentioned I set out to recover the historical TLP archive from further decay in the orclands.

I took the following approach :

  1. First, I downloaded the monthly archive as available on the site (/archive.html) ;
  2. Then, I downloaded the category-based archive, also as available on the sitei ;
  3. Then, I spidered a collection of various other pages linking in ;
  4. Each of these steps producedii a list of links.
  5. Because steps 1, 2 and 3 individually produced the same list of 698 article titles, I therefore conclude I have the complete list.iii

Here is then said listiv, sorted alphabetically (older adnotations of the same material in square brackets listing the year) :

I then proceeded to download each of these ; along with the images included by Ballas in the articles as content (but not various spurious inclusions such as voting buttons etc.).

This resulted in a ball of gnarl, about 45% by weightxiv spurious mark-up and similar nonsensexv. I then proceeded to (mostly) de-gnarl the ball of gnarlxvi, producing a flatfile of the textual content of the archive, which is temporarily available as fulltlp-clean2.txt. The original images discussed are also temporarily available.

I intend to read and adnotate each of these over the coming weeks (and also as feasible replace the shitty images of the original author with better variants if available).

So... hold on to your shorts, Trilema's feed's about to light up!

Questions for a putative interview with TLP, should he ever re-emerge.xvii

  1. When / under what circumstances did he start using the term "core dump" ?
  2. Did he enjoy a torid/platonic relationship with a certain teen by the name Brittany, cca 2011 ; and if torid, did consummation first occur just prior to June 8, 2011 ?
  3. At the time of penning of that Amy Schumer piece, had he any idea that Maria Schneider was raped in the making of Last Tango In Paris, in the specific sense that a) "the butter scene" was improv rather than scripted, and single-take ; b) she was neither consulted nor informed prior ; c) the whole thing was Brando's idea, and it mostly came to him as he went along and d) not only did she not enjoy herself, but rater quit acting as a result ?
  4. Does he actually imagine he's having relationships with the voices he hears ? Does he take that fantasy as far as to alter his behaviour / thought process according to what he imagines they'd enjoy or dislike ?
  5. Did he ever see Equus ? What did he make of the Kaopectate monologue ?
  1. Enumerated list : Clinical ; Clinical.Antipsychotics ; Clinical.Suicide ; Coffee,Liquor,Etc ; CoolBeyondWords ; Education ; HomicidalManiacs ; Humor ; InsuranceCompanies ; LegalIssues ; Media ; Money ; Movies,TV,andBooks ; Narcissism ; Pharma ; PhilosophicalSpeculations ; Politics ; PsychiatryGoneAwry ; RelationshipsandFamily ; Sadly,Porn ; ShortStories ; WRONG ; []

  3. This "completeness" is self-evidently illusionary. For instance, the original article that sparked my interest in the man's work (so much so as to motivate me to translate it into Romanian back in February 2011) was long deleted by its original author. []
  4. Should anyone know of more articles I would very much appreciate a note in the comments section ; I will consider pretty much any custody chain or other proof of paternity for possible inclusion. []
  5. Content-less fluff piece, skipping. []
  6. Contentless piece, skipping. []
  7. The whole article consists of

    if CATIE is so important, and was funded by the NIMH (i.e. taxpayer dollars), why isn't it available free on the CATIE or NIMH websites?  Or anywhere else?  Snakes.  All of you are snakes.

    Which... you know. []

  8. Don't you find that really subtle differences between practically identical titles are the way to go ?

    This is incidentally one of my points of pride re Trilema : there are places where one must type no less than ten characters to distinguish between two articles, but when that happens it's Whore Street and prospective holocaust. vs Whore strat, ie, not even close at all! Not formally, at any rate, by which I mean... not literally. The tree is well divergent, its endpoints are well distributed over the space of possibilities, the leaf nodes are all reasonably distant, how should I put this. And I wrote a lot more articles than he did! []

  9. I'm not adnotating this specifically, it's just some fiction piece. []
  10. Empty article. []
  11. Nothing much here, included in the next one. []
  12. Nothing here, besides the vague announcement of "starting another blog". []
  13. Nothing there, he's just bitching about the TV schedule. []
  14. 4.2 Mb out of 7.7 Mb. Note that the 7.7 Mb figure excludes most of the original html, only the articles and titles having been retained. The material actually downloaded weighs in at 95 Mb, meaning that less than 5% of the html content served by is actually meaningfully related to Ballas' work. []
  15. Besides the usual USG tendrils proto-Republicans and other ideological innocents unavoidably end up scammed into including in their work and their life, there's also large piles of painfully ineptly autogenerated mark-up, in the vein of

    </blockquote><p style="margin-bottom: 0.2in;"><meta http-equiv="CONTENT-TYPE" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
    <meta name="GENERATOR" content=" 2.3 (Win32)"><style type="text/css"><meta http-equiv="CONTENT-TYPE" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

    <meta name="GENERATOR" content=" 2.3 (Win32)"><style type="text/css">

    etc qs. []

  16. I also removed typographical idiosyncrasies of the original author, such as the double space. []
  17. Seeing how I'm keeping this open anyway for updating the links, I figure I might as well collect these here. The ordering's historical. []

  1. Thanks for doing this. It would be a shame to have that site lost to bitrot.

    Is that original deleted article that inspired you in this list?

    Also, #453 has no title in this list.

    Good point. It's this thing :

    Contentless piece, which is why it got lost.

    Obviously enough this page keeps getting updated -- by the time I'm done it'll easily be the most updated article in the history of Trilema, and possibly the holder of the majority of updates a published article ever received, because I never used to do this before.

    So this is to say I meanwhile added an interview ideas list, and well... won't be "&updated" all the time in the future.

    Meanwhile I've decided I really don't like this tard (or rather, I kept observing he's moronic, taking a break, then starting over later with diminished enthusiasm -- until this last pass today when the diminishing finally crossed underwater) ; whatever semblance of insight might've originally sparked interest is so thoroughly buried under sprawling, unyielding idiocy his life's work is not worth my time.

    I've discontinued work on this score as a going concern ; I vaguely regret all the "" prefixed derpage littering my history pages, but I'm not going to actually delete them -- the normal flow of trilema will cover them under the sands of time presently anyway.

    In closing, I augur him the traditional "mai meri si-n pula, bai Ballas".
