Story
Introduction

Burntsystems was created in 1995 to answer the call of the “burnt” feeling trying to satisfy the “system” or tirelessly trying to conform to an ever changing pop culture. Born Heidelberg West Germany  to a Norwegian Mother and his father an Army Chopper pilot from Bronx NYC brought the turn of the century European techno industrial, his sister’s disco back in the late 70’s and that sampler from Radio shack got on layaway when he was a young American at just 11 years old together to present day. (Thanks to his Dad who rocked out every night on an acoustic guitar-singing Nitty Gritty, classic 50’s bands and his own Rockabilly originals) A Norwegian uncle playing piano and singing his head off in every summer from ages 1-10.  Candlelit reel to reel listening of his quite famous Grandfathers Norwegian Opera. His Mom’s choir practice live from ages 0-33. Christian V was destined to become a singer/songwriter. Taught classical violin and piano in grade school and joined the junior high chorus team by 6th grade-influenced by his mothers classical, his father’s classic rock, older sisters Disco, Euro-techno, Philly electro, D.C.’s hip hop/go-go (was known to break dance in the 80’s when it was called “rap”) Boston’s rave, L.A.’s happy hardcore & rap, goa, Goldie’s jungle, Cosmic Baby trance, Moby’s punk, gothic metal (SOM-Die Krupp’s), Metallica metal, ambient (ORB), acid jazz (Calypso from N’Orleans) electro clash, Johnny Cash, LedZep hair bands, Air bands, Pink Floyd, Ziggy Stardust, Zoot suit Big Bands and rubber bands. You name it. Midi programming & sampling began while stationed in Bavaria under the careful tutelage of Bob Bozak (A music Theory professor in the same Army unit) under band name “Burnt Republic” taught to sequence the difficult lead synthesizer lines, so Christian could concentrate on the singing, lyrical placement and grooving with the lead guitarist. Multi track recording and mastering via cassette and eventually ADAT, then on his own utilizing many of the past and current DAW’s both MAC & PC. The drums; when the session drummer would not show. Bass, when the bass player exited the service and then on his own for over a decade upon completion of his Army term. Whereupon, Christian V. Began development of his own one man band or “Megabite/Burntrobot” era from 1993-1996 where he met a classically trained soprano singer named Space girl Z (aka Zoe Levan) “BURNT! Spacepop (1997-2001) was a pioneer of the many electronica/techno duos to come and created their own brand of music known today as technopera. Covering many artists via Roland midi groove machines, such as Madonna, Michael Jackson and the Beetles. Collaborations began again in the Washington DC area after the “BURNT!” tour ended.

 Currently connected to Sonic Circuits most recent compilation from Washington DC, local Pop stars, “Dirtstarr” “Trapdoor exit”, “Angelpirate”, Jenni Bloodworth, Johnny Graves & the Tombstones and creation of creative remixes for such talent along with new song and sound creations using the latest most creative musical technological tools.

Once I am out I am going to put serious energy into a class action suit for this place and I need ALL of your help to make it happen. I take back everything good I ever said about this Arbor Park Orleans Village fiasco. Forgive my translation but : ATENCIÓN RESIDENTES EN CURSO ¿Verdad? 1. OBLIGADOS A TENER UNA CUENTA DE DOMINION ELECTRIC QUE costar cientos de dólares MÁS DE CADA MES DE SU PROYECTO DE LEY NORMAL o arruinado su crédito o AMBOS 2. TIENE SU COCHE DE ARRASTRE y confiscado más de una vez o no se da ADEQUETE TIEMPO PARA OBTENER UNA ETIQUETA DE NUEVO APARCAMIENTO 3. HA TENIDO UNA HABITACIÓN DE COCHE O MIEMBROS DE LA FAMILIA DE ARRASTRE DE UN PUNTO DE HUÉSPEDES o incluso con un pase de visitante 4. Fueron acusados MUCHO MÁS QUE SU CONTRATO DE ARRENDAMIENTO EN ALQUILER PERO SE DIJO DE SERVICIOS PÚBLICOS O artículos dejados en su patio o porche 5. DESEA PARTICIPAR EN TRAJE DE DEMANDA COLECTIVA CONTRA LAS CASAS HOGAR PARA RECUPERAR TODO O DE SU DINERO MÁS DAÑOS A SU CRÉDITO ATTENTION CURRENT RESIDENTS WERE YOU? 1.FORCED TO HAVE A DOMINION ACCOUNT THAT COST YOU HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS MORE EACH MONTH THAN YOUR NORMAL BILL OR RUINED YOUR CREDIT OR BOTH 2.HAVE YOUR CAR TOWED AND IMPOUNDED MORE THAN ONE TIME OR NOT GIVEN ADEQUETE TIME TO GET A NEW PARKING STICKER 3.HAVE HAD A GUEST OR FAMILY MEMBERS CAR TOWED FROM A GUEST SPOT OR EVEN WITH A VISITORS PASS 4.WERE CHARGED MUCH MORE THAN YOUR LEASE AGREEMENT FOR RENT BUT TOLD IT WAS FOR UTILITY BILLS OR ITEMS LEFT ON YOUR PATIO OR PORCH 5.WOULD LIKE TO PARTICIPATE IN CLASS ACTION SUIT AGAINST HOME PROPERTIES TO RECOVER SOME OR ALL OF YOUR MONEY PLUS DAMAGES TO YOUR CREDIT ? Please contact me. All I need are Names (First and Last) and your address, current within the past year and a half in Arbor Park/Orleans Village. My personal complaints grow by the day. Specifically, Yenneneh & Lisa playing gate keeper to the manager who is unaware or does not seem to care about ANYTHING that is going on right under her nose. It was decent when I 1st moved there. Now that I moved to one of the apt. buildings it is like paying to be tortured daily. Home inspections at 8am in the morning?!? I nearly attacked him but he pointed out that they put a note under my door at 1045pm the night before. Heater was broken and shook the walls for four days-Good f'n luck sleeping. Now the air conditioner is busted. Parking is atrocious. They obviously do not have enough spots. Even though I have paid rent ontime for 4 years in a row I was a day late this year and got an eviction notice pasted to my door, one in my mailbox and an email? Being charged back Dominion Electric for 6 months and being told take it or have your power shut off? Being given 120 notice to vacate but being told I must still stay until the end of the lease? Their paperwork RARELY matches what is said. 90% terrible outweighs the 8% decent. There you have it.

I have been visiting your Bethesda store daily for 8.5 months. Each day I buy a medium dark roast and sometime breakfast. I relax in the store for 30 min. to an hour then head to my office (a short walk away) I return at 10 am because up until today I was given a free refill. (No questions asked) I encouraged my co-workers to frequent this Caribou too and they often accompanied me. Today I was accosted by a worker there and another customer that I was "cheating the system" and "I know better" and I was informed that I was followed from my office and cannot have a free refill if I leave the store. I let them both know this is the 1st I had heard of it and that there must be better things to spend their time and energy on. They both continued to rant and share this with other customers to the point where I felt it necessary to raise my voice and say "ENOUGH!" I am writing you to let you know there are 3 coffee shops all within a block of my work. They each have a policy on refills and no one calls me out and encourages this type of embarrassment of their patrons. Today will be my last cup at Caribou.
