a bombastic exorcism of vocabulary.

And we converge.

The horizon was hackneyed, disinterest ringing from tongues' tips to attenuating glares. Aberrant codas cogitating diffident standoffs debilitate impending atrophy and relocate the archetype meaning of those words. No jive or colloquialism is impervious to the ephemeral nature of endemic speech, no matter the intransigents of some; to think otherwise is simply baleful to any burgeoning street. We must codify this reality, this law of nature and diffuse the disputatious dissonance, dissembling intractable gainsay. A cloture to end acerbic cants is a farewell to disingenuous euphonies of amelioration. My alacrity to assuage this gnawingly insipid peeve with emollient precision I believe will be beneficent bilaterally. Allow encomium its place in honest praise and expose the deleterious impugner for his denigrating ways.

The Four-Five-Six-Seven String Coterie of Cacophony is cognizant of its dissonant discourse albeit coherent and cohesive.

Hilaaaaaaaaarious.

Christine O’Donnell Introduced to Concept of ‘Separation of Church and State’ for the First Time

  • 10/19/10 at 12:50 PM
Christine O'Donnell was a Constitutional Government fellow at the Claremont Institute, and talks about her love of the Constitution all the time, so we know she is pretty much an expert on the Constitution. But even she was stumped by a complicated and often overlooked passage from the document when it came up during a debate with her Senate opponent, Chris Coons, earlier today.
Coons said private and parochial schools are free to teach creationism but that "religious doctrine doesn't belong in our public schools."

"Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?" O'Donnell asked him.
When Coons responded that the First Amendment bars Congress from making laws respecting the establishment of religion, O'Donnell asked: "You're telling me that's in the First Amendment?" ....

"You actually audibly heard the crowd gasp," Widener University political scientist Wesley Leckrone said after the debate, adding that it raised questions about O'Donnell's grasp of the Constitution.
Raised questions? No. There are no questions. For someone hoping to serve in the Senate of the United States, saying "You're telling me that [the establishment clause is] in the First Amendment?" is like a prospective astronaut saying, "You're telling me we can't breathe in space?" It's like a heart surgeon walking into the operating room and asking, "You're telling me there are four chambers in the pumpy thing?" And so on. 

Update: Now with embarrassing video:

BOSS Loop Contest 2010 - "Lima" by Daniel Harris



This video was made for the Boss Loop Contest 2010. I used the Boss RC-50 and RC-20 loop stations, as well as the Boss DD-7 and some other pedals.

Tech specs: The DD-7 is roughly in the middle of my pedal line; the RC-50 is the last and the RC-20 is second to last. I ran the stereo out from the DD-7 into an old practice amp, while the main and loop were sent to a Mesa Boogie combo (.22 Studio). Both amps were then mic'ed (one with an SM57 and the other with a mock 58) and along with the vocals (a CAD dynamic mic) were sent to an ART Tubefire 8 interface and recorded into Garageband where it was also mixed.

Guitar: Raines Bebop 7-string.

The mix: vocals are in the center, the stereo out from the DD-7 is panned toward the right and the RC-50/20/main are toward the left.

The video: shot using two Sony DVCams simultaneously--one on the ground, one on a tripod--and edited using Avid.

Credits:

Music: Daniel Harris Levine
Video: Daniel Harris Levine

Lyrics: Seth Kroll
Video Edit: Erika Street

A different arrangement of this song can be found on my album, "Thirty-two bit isn't really eight bits better", released in the fall of 2008.

Enjoy!

Love,
Daniel Harris

My friend Jake Hess: An American Journalist Arrested in Turkey



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: CHRIS CAESAR
CHRISCAESAR@GMAIL.COM
(508) 868-1592

ARREST OF WINNACUNNET GRADUATE, FORMER PORTSMOUTH
HERALD CONTRIBUTOR BY THE TURKISH GOVERNMENT CONDEMNED
BY PRESS FREEDOM ORGANIZATIONS; AT LEAST TWO DEMAND
HIS “IMMEDIATE RELEASE.”

ANKARA, Turkey – A freelance journalist with ties to the New Hampshire Seacoast and Boston has
been arrested in what appears to be a politically-motivated act of retaliation by the Turkish government,
watch-dog groups reported Friday.

Jake Hess, 25, formerly of Hampton, was detained by Turkish police after publishing a series of articles
critical of the Turkish government's treatment of Kurdish refugees. Officially, the government alleges
Hess has collaborated with the Kuridstan Worker's Party, or PKK, a militant group outlawed by the
Turkish government.

Hess's attorney, Serkan AkbaĊŸ, said Hess "wrote several articles that angered the authorities,” adding
that the timing of the arrest “clearly shows that they got annoyed with his articles.” His latest piece
(http://original.antiwar.com/jake-hess/2010/08/04/kurdish-refugees-were-not-living-just-not-dying/
print/) for the Inter Press Service news agency - examining the displacement of civilians after Turkish
attacks - was published on August 4.

Akbas says Hess was detained without access to a lawyer for nearly 27 hours.

"Jake Hess is a legitimate journalist,” Mohamed Abdel Dayem, the Committee to Protect Journalists
Middle East and North Africa program coordinator, said. "...we call on Turkish authorities to
immediately release Hess, and not hinder his reporting."

“Detaining a journalist should be an exceptional measure resulting from a thorough investigation
establishing he has committed a serious crime,” the press freedom organization Reporters
Without Borders said in a separate statement. “We call for Jake Hess's immediate release.”

“He is a legitimate journalist of extremely high integrity,” London Independent columnist Johann
Hari added on his blog. “The idea that he would have any alliance with, or sympathy for, a terror group
is utterly absurd. Yet he is currently being held at the Diyarbakir Anti-Terrorism Branch.”

“Jake Hess is one of the most passionately consistent advocates for human rights I have ever
met, period,” long-time friend and fellow WHS grad Chris Caesar said. “I hope we can have
a good laugh about these charges when he comes home, because right now, I'm mad as hell.”

Hess was raised in Hampton, NH but attended college at Suffolk University in Boston, MA and
received a graduate degree from Brown University.

According to reports, the US Embassy has declined to comment on the situation.

###

Friends and family are urging others to contact the State Department at 888-407-4747 and the US
Embassy in Ankara 90-312-455-5555 to express concern about the case.
