At age 6, I was changing speeds on reel to reel tape recorders, and thus was born an electronic musician working with physical synthesizers, digital loops and samples, field recordings, slide whistles, harmonicas, acoustic guitar, and drum machines. Male and female guests vocalists appear on some tracks. Gave Andy Warhol a cassette album of my old art rock band Camouflage Danse in NYC.

No Wedding Cakes for Gay Weddings?

Yet Christian bakeries provide cakes to heterosexual weddings where alcohol is frequently abused, so is that condoning alcoholism? By doing so, you're affirming what they're doing, which is sin. 

How about providing a wedding cake for warmongers, men and women in the military? That's affirming the opposite of what Jesus taught about non-violence and how we are to love, not bomb, our enemies.

Kevin DeYoung has an article expressing the anti gay wedding view.

http://www.churchleaders.com/pastors/videos-for-pastors/254251-kevin-deyoung-attend-homosexual-friends-wedding.html

On that post, Costa K states:

QUOTE

So should we go to a wedding if the couple have already been living together? That is, "living in sin"?

Should we go to a wedding if the couple already have children? That is, "born out of wedlock"?

Should we go to a wedding of two unbelievers that is officiated by a celebrant and there's no mention of God?

Conversely, should we go to a wedding of two unbelievers who make promises to God yet have no intention of keeping them?

Should we go to a wedding where the couple just want the old stone church to look great in their photos so they grin and bear all the God-bits?

We've all been to weddings such as these. Yet if we are consistent, we wouldn't attend any wedding that was outside of God's set design and purpose. Yet we do.

Or is the bar set merely at gender? That is, so long as the couple are male/female, it doesn't really matter what their situation is.

I have a feeling that we are inconsistent in our beliefs and practices about the weddings we currently attend and officiate.

Perhaps we need to give greater thought to what we are already doing, rather than focusing on if we should go to a gay wedding.

It is some interesting stuff to think about on an individual basis. But, at what point do you decide for others what their religion must be?

Yes. You have a special dental practice. Everyone else thinks their practices are special too. So what can you do to let people know that it's YOUR dental practice they need to visit because it truly is the best? Here are some helpful tips from Dr. Roger Levin.

No Aliens Would Care About Planet Earth

http://www.npr.org/sections/13.7/2015/05/27/409670639/why-arent-the-aliens-here-already

NPR article states that aliens have not visited Earth because there are no aliens, humans are the only intelligent lifeforms.

How absurd.

Humanity is so anthropocentric, so focused on how "great" and superior mankind is.

I see no evidence of it whatsoever.

If humans are the most "evolved" species existing, this Universe is in serious trouble.

There is nothing of the slightest bit of interest on Earth for any extraterrestrials to bother with or care about. There is no reason for them to contact us or teach us anything.

Extraterrestrials have seen our warmongering planet. They've noticed our TV shows, Hollywood films, music, art, literature, medicine, agriculture, and governments. They're not impressed. In fact, they're disgusted.

No sane, intelligent aliens would come to Earth, except to harvest us and cook us for dinner.

Maybe they'd use chemtrails to alter our atmosphere and GMOs to change our food supply, to make them more suitable for their needs.

But visit with us and chat? Share some incredible technology with us? Help us learn how to travel instantly from galaxy to galaxy through worm holes and time warps?

No way.

C.S. reportedly said Earth was quarantined, to keep humans from infecting the rest of the outer space civilizations. This sounds right to me.

#aliens   #extraterrestrials  
If we learned we're the only ones looking into the night sky, it'd be impossibly lonely. But it might also mean there's something holding all beings from a higher state, which may spell our doom too.

Street Photography Genius Vivian Maier

http://erickimphotography.com/blog/2014/04/14/5-lessons-vivian-maier-has-taught-me-about-street-photography/

I have recently become initiated into this benevolent cult of radical street photography.

I engage in it to celebrate the average person and to expose government negligence and crimes, particularly the inept City Council where I live.

I love this Barnes & Noble bookstore and shop there all the time. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly, so the customer experience is very pleasant. I'll sit there and skim through books of interest while my wife shops over at the nearby Michaels craft store. I buy all my books there and most music CDs too. Special ordering is a breeze and the orders arrive quickly. Staff workers are kind and extremely helpful and knowledegable, unlike most other retail stores. The book selection is great and new titles are constantly arriving. If this store closed, I would be very depressed. As a book worm, I just love hanging out and perusing the aisles. I also like buying Computer Music magazine (UK) there and have also purchased various non-print items like tote bags and moleskin journals. Keep up the great work B&N.

Castle's Patio Inn is the very definition of a cozy, friendly neighborhood bar/restaurant. Formerly Ray's Patio Inn, this place has the Lexus of garlic cheese spread. It's a world famous cheese that's a family tradition for Peorians and Central Illinois. You can't have Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year's without a crock of Castle's Patio Inn garlic cheese spread. They serve a small crock and Ritz crackers to any patron who asks for it, and it tastes great with a couple beers or sodas. Wonderful establishment. Unique and fun.
