Unless you are running a customized version of pdfTeX
which supports PSTricks, you cannot use PSTricks macros
with pdfTeX.
Guaranteed way to generate a PDF is either
  vlatex yourfile.tex
  latex yourfile.tex && dvips yourfile.dvi && ps2pdf14
If you do insist, there is a much more complicated path
using pst-pdf, which involves pdflatex in the way.
Alternatively, if you are willing to beta test the
new xdvipdfmx announced in a separate thread, either
  xelatex yourfile.tex
  xelatex -no-pdf yourfile.tex && xdvipdfmx yourfile.xdv
may work.

OK, let's read the log:

Mauseating!  Why do we have to allow conTeXt macros
to gobble precious TeX memory, when we are running

These means PSTricks objects won't appear in your
PDF file and rotations won't work.

This means you have loaded color (or graphics)
package in a manner incompatible with PSTricks,
which is unavoidable with pdfLaTeX.

See above.
