Extra-judicial

I’m not using the prefix of extra to mean larger, in this context, it means outside of. I have written before about the administration’s use of predator drones. Like I said, there is an argument to be made about pursuing folks that are actively fighting the US forces beyond the combat zone and doing away …

Another great protest coin

Another “hard times” token, this one in silver. “No pyramid can endure when the base collapses… So let it fall.” I continue to be impressed with the artwork and symbolism in these things, they are miniature works of art in their own right. I ordered some of the Amero silver coins tonight, what do you …

"End the Fed" and other rebel coins

The groups I belong to on Facebook (Libertarian party, Mises Institute, etc.) land me on some interesting ads lists. One caught my eye, it is a group minting silver coins that say “End the Fed” on the front and a chart showing the devaluation of the dollar on the obverse.They are 1 oz. silver coins …

This machine kills fascists

That was a line in a book I was reading. It rang a strong bell, but I couldn’t place it. In the story, a punk rocker was saying it after an unlikely dispersal of an alien with a guitar chord. But who was that? Who said that? Oh right… In many ways, Woody Guthrie was …

The Georgetown store…

… is lovely. I have now worked there two full days and I can say I really enjoy working there. It is spacious, look great, and seems to function very well. The best thing, the absolute most wonderful thing about it though is NATURAL LIGHT!!! The whole front lets in a lot of course, but …

Self sufficiency and freedom

My stereo

I know you’ve all been waiting with bated breath waiting to hear what I’ll be doing next with my audio gear… Well, you’ll be able to rest easy now, now more sleepless nights worrying! I’m still enjoying the heck out of my Squeezebox Touch. It is the digital front end I have always wanted in …

Last FM and more…

I had mentioned Pandora radio before, I now feel that I have found an even better internet radio service. It’s called Last FM and it is amazing. Here’s the way it works, it looks at all the music you have played, in iTunes, internet radio, and on your iPod, and builds an artist library for …

I have music again!

So, my Squeezebox Touch got here today. In a lucky break, so did my switch and ethernet bridge. To recap, the SB Touch is a network/internet music player you can hook up to your stereo. I can stream the music from my computer via the network to it, or I can use it independently to …
