Str8 Sounds "live" at GAR (Grand Army of the Republic) Hall - CIAO Art Show

No, I have not a single clue who this Str8 Sounds fan is, grimacing, like they all do.

Thanks to William Ordaz and Edward LaStrange for inviting me to perform at this historic event.

This is like The Stepford Wives Journalists Try Extra Hard to Make a Scandal Out of a Slightly Interesting Church. Will the Church of Wells take over the town? How many voting members do they have now? Will they unsubscribe from the Sunday paper? How many gallons of ice cream do they deprive the town of?

Early Christianity Was Pacifist

http://medicolegal.tripod.com/warisasin.htm

Good list of quotes and references to early Christian teachings and opinions on non-violence.

#pacifism  
“The early Christians took Jesus at his word, and understood his inculcations of gentleness and non-resistance in their literal sense. They closely identified their religion with peace; they strongly condemned war for the bloodshed which it involved; they appropriated to themselves the Old ...

Employee of the Month parking spot 

Because nothing says "Good job!!!" like a special place to park your car. That's what employees care about, right?

Forget the fact that being a good employee means the company makes more money, or retains customers, or is able to expand its operations.

Rather have a bonus check? What? Do you think money grows on trees?

Free mp3s - Str8 Sounds "live" at Grand Army of the Republic Hall, Peoria, IL - 5 PM Friday, July 3, 2015

https://str8sounds.bandcamp.com/album/live-at-the-grand-army-of-the-republic-hall

(1) GAR Hall - set 2  (new age industrial dirge) -- 26:55

(2) GAR Hall - set 1 (ambient hiss) -- 6:12

The inaugural event marking the first time this event has been hosted at the GAR Hall.

Ambient static, industrial space music, specialty noise, and electrophonic drones for the next 12,000 years of human history.

Embodiments of radical art noise and sonic disequalibriums were dished out handsomely, in a spirit of meekness and shadowiness.

#techno #noise #music   #art
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.

Str8 Sounds techno / noise / electro-blues LIVE at the historic GAR Hall

 - CIAO Art Show. Friday, July 3, 2015 at 5 PM and 7 PM.

GAR Hall, 416 Hamilton, Peoria. Hamilton at NE Madison. Look for the cannon and cannon balls.

Aliens and futurists will appear in bodily form.

You'll argue about this for many long minutes or days. But if you miss it, you won't be able to debate it in the elite downtrodden circles.

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.
