Sticky Green

If climate change and pollution are some of the biggest hazards humanity has faced, why is it that we only have one big conference a year? Doesn't it seem to make more sense to have a commission comprised of all the representatives from all the countries that want to participate that...I don't know...say...IS ALWAYS TOGETHER DISCUSSING THIS SHIT!!??!!


And I love the people(mostly affluent white Americans) who are screaming about the whole issue being a sham. I guess all I have to say is, if you don't understand the basic principle of heat accumulation then there's no hope for you. Quick experiment. Take your temperature. What is it? That's right, if you're 'normal' it's around 98.6 F. What does this prove? Well, let's see...everything puts out heat. In fact, does anything produce cold without warming something else up? Ummmmmm...nope. So heat pollution is a reality, as is drought, and so is the acidization of the oceans.

I heard some senator talking to some reporter on some station at some time some days ago. She asked him what was to be done about all of this. He said there was pretty much nothing to be done. That what the higher ups are really doing is fighting about money. The most poignant shit he said was, to paraphrase, that the solution is quite simple but would never be enacted because no one would stand for it. His solution? Tell people they just don't NEED to drive as much. They don't NEED all of the luxuries that are burying them. Yeah, right, try and tell someone not to water their lawn at noon during the summer and see what happens. Logic goes out of the window and the chest thumping freedom fighter that lies dormant in most fat, lazy, fuckheads here comes out with guns blazing. 'You ain't got no right to limit my freedom!'

Haha. We're doomed. Fuck yes.

Oh. And I promise. I'll get some music up soon. The Hard Disk in my recorder is futzed. Guess I'll go make my carbon contribution and buy a new one. Sigh.

Open happiness....

You must be kidding.

Cee-lo Green. How far you have fallen.

The Goodies fell off after releasing 'World Party'. I still think that release smacks of producer/label pressure. What's funny is that 'Kast released horrible bullshit easily rivaling the poor job on WP but did it just that much later that people bit. Poor Goodie. Now Cee-lo is a shill for Coke. Really pathetic.

Ah well. There's always the past.

" My mind won't allow me to not be curious
My folk don't understand so they don't take it serious
But every now and then, I wonder
If the gate was put up to keep crime out or to keep our ass in"

Have you figured it out yet Cee-lo?

I'll see you. I'll hear you. I'll feel you. But you'll never be here in front of me. It goes like that though. I am lucky you left that big imprint in me. Whenever I think I have something brilliant to say, I'll stop and think of what you would have said that trumped it. And with such matter of fact clarity. Such obviousness.

The universe got better because you joined it finally.

RIP Tony Patt.

My friend.

I am circuit building, bending, and fixing now. You can email me at for prices etc...

All of these are already out there in the world. I have ONE EFX Looper waiting for labels and ready to go.

First up is the benders standby a Speak and Math. It has a glitch switch, a loop switch, 1/4" out, and a pitch mod. I didn't get crazy w/ this one as I had only the one.

Next is a bent Barbie Karaoke machine. Thanks to Pete Edwards at Casper Electronics for the inspiration for this one! It has an adjustable tape speed, tweakable echo/delay parameters, 2 1/4" mono inputs , one 1/8" stereo input, 2 selectable 1/4" outs, a gain pot, and a master power switch.
Kids keyboard. I added a switchable 1/4" out, gain switch, and pitch mod. The coolest thing is that this keyboard will record up to 7 seconds of your key presses and repeat them back to you, but only once. I added a circuit so that it will repeat the phrase as many times as you want and at user set variable intervals. Basically turned it into a little backup machine. This particular model records the presses of not only the keys, but also the drum buttons, not every model does this, so also it can sub as a super lo-fi drum machine.

EFX Looper/True bypass pedal, noise madness.
