    Take some Precautions Hazard approaching. 

    This from a Blog I read regularly.

    http://www.golemxiv.co.uk/2011/12/the-miracle-of-solvency/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=the-miracle-of-solvency

    Banks are teetering on the edge some sensible precautions are in order. Keep some liquid resources Cash at hand dried food candles fire wood that sort of thing
    handy if there is a widespread problem it will take a few weeks for other means of exchange and distribution to kick in.

    Don’t panic and if any financial organisation is in a position to vote or dispose of any of your savings or assets under discretion delegated to them or through fraud probably best just to get the paperwork changed.

    The real big problems for the Banks kick in in the first quarter end the system will likely start creaking ahead of then. We are entering a period of adjustment when what is real is becoming apparent and the fantasy nonsense narrative of debt based money pedaled over the past 40 years that was not corrected in 2008 when if politics had been for the people it  would have been and should have been.

    Anyway my honest assessment is that it is sufficiently worrying to take some small precautions it is a world wide problem

    If the banks do not trust each other and they do not why should we trust them ?

    I am optimistic for the future long end of 2012 into 2013 but first half of 2012 could get rough Iran China North Korea Pakistan Afghanistan particularly Iran and presently Syria are all being subjected to NAtO and israeli war crimes similar to those committed in Libya and Iraq before . If there is not reform in American British and EU state political and corporate systems of governence there will be war and probably Civil war / revolution.

    If we use the internet and our family and business Networks to assert our collective democratic will the criminals in charge by default presently should be brought to justice.

    Anyway I would be dishonest not to share my honest and sincere concerns here so there you have it.

    I’m more than happy to provide any number of sources and what not upon which I base my assessments they are not politically motivated I am a committed anarchist and have no political leanings what so ever a plague on all their houses my only concern is for the welfare of my Neighbor and his neighbors and their neighbors neighbor as it is in nature so it should be in politics.

    Modes of Thought 

    There are 7 whole notes in the western musical scale and Major is minor.
    Modes its Where you Start
    Harmony is where you finish
    Melody is how you feel about it
    Rythym is Praxis
    Enharmonic is a signpost to Plurality but its called according to which direction you approach it from.

    I just listened to a Lecture on Goethe and Kant and truth and freedom(1) I think Robert Johnson may well have seen the Boris Karlov silent movie of Faust. I also watched the Wizard of Oz with my Kids last night, the Scarecrow wasn’t tuning Guitars at the Crossroads and the Wizard gave him a diploma but really said its within ourselves an Inherent intuition Kant called it a priori knowledge.

    A few Goethe Quotes

    We know accurately only when we know little, with knowledge doubt increases.

    The effects of good music are not just because it’s new; on the contrary music strikes us more the more familiar we are with it.

    All theory, dear friend, is gray, but the golden tree of life springs ever green.

     read my own post and remembered this really funny link i looked at posted at the acmebargig beta testing bulletin board.

    Its called the Contempory composers bullshit generator and is very funny

    The Contemporary Classical Composer’s Bullshit Generator

    My most personal mechanism always features strongly in any of my quartal compositions. I was first introduced to the concept of ‘eclecticly-Stockhausenesque orchestration-illusions’ last year, and it has allowed me a greater depth of installations, especially whilst developing the ultimate mechanism. My goal, in essence, is to layer musical recordings. My latest composition explores the boundaries between sounds and conflicts, whilst utilising a highly apparent attitude to a traditional, periodic sculpture. I am very much influenced by the idea of contextualising theoretical intricacies, particularly whilst combined with a highly tonal approach to meanings. The fact that tessituras tend to (at least in their repetitive state), textually compose, even in the presence of a strong material, is, you will agree, patently absurd.

     It took me a long time to develop my ear a balance of both is a way to Work Smart and learn smart use whats there but aim for this ( one of the best lessons on You tube this)

    My other 3 favourite lessons Ever.

    Eureka Moment this one for me. Plurality is an amazing concept and not only in Music

    Chord construction learn how they work not what they are Intervals ( ear training is the key to understanding Intervals its like a Chef testing for seasoning)

    Books.

    Bill Edwards Fret Board Logic and Michael Lydon Six Swinginbg Strings and Ralph Denyer Guitar Hand Book and the guitar for dummies Series.

    Two of the greats of You Tube Justin Sanderscoe and Andrew Wasson.

    Whatever works for you but Cotton wool in the ears isn’t likely to assist at least at the beginning. Beethoven only went deaf later.

    If you can afford to spend a little time with a Teacher then great if not seek out someone further down the line than you and steal their Licks ( people have been doing that longer than the record industry has existed


    And Robben Ford on What are the essentials

    I watched this video regarding the basics on Robin Fords Guitar Dojo site the other day
    and thought it was pretty good. Harmony Rhythm melody but mostly Rhythm. With Rhythm on your side you can busk to anything.

    Happy Christmas 

    Its been a year of discovery for me I continued a journey of thought and learning which started in Sweden 3 years ago now when I had been revolted by one of the Millibands referring to someone questioning the Global Warming Narrative as a denier. For me this moment sums up what is wrong with our modern politics the questions of ordinary people are seen as inconvenient and heretical just by dint of existing.

    Anyway I plan to write before the New year or in the run up to New years eve in more depth of what I  plan to do next year with my discoveries and my Still optimistic outlook that a better world can be designed and made for all our Children and neighbors so with that message of hope and love Happy Christmas one and all from this small Tribe of Swedish Vikings.

    And for those I haven not heard from but think of often.

    Time perception comparative experience Pavlovs Dog. 

    Steve it is as you say not for everyone witness the Fire Bird x furore to see how true that is.

    What is amazing with the Line 6 Variax’s is that all the processing is done on the instrument and it is plug and play like a regular guitar Acoustic or electric the only trick needed for the acoustic modelling is an acoustic Amp ( High Range acoustic amps )

    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=High+Range+acoustic+amplification+for+guitar

    Heres Rolands offering always a good starting point.

    http://www.roland.com/products/en/AC-100/

    Being in a room with a beautiful Acoustic and no amplification is a completely different experience I would go as far to say that that becomes a spirtiual commune between Player instrument and listener in a way that intervening amplification can’t enhance outside of the live situation signals are going to be running through conducting material either as electronic currents or digital streams once into the signaling realm there really is no difference anymore.

    The time factor is greatly reduced with the Variax guitars although workbench is maybe getting into time consuming territory, the deep programming and other technology in setting eq and so forth is a curve that exists for all and comes down to how much time we can spend on it both playing and the production skills in Sound Vision content and so forth. I was discussing with Johanna yesterday how we base our views upon our own comparative experience and those learned from other sources of information we trust sometimes unwisely.

    Heres a link to a 1 hour and 15 minutes documentary I watched the other day which touches on the idea the psychological responses displayed by Pavlovs dog are played upon more than any of us really care to acknowledge I think some of the reading I haver been doing on Standard Concert pitch
    Is really quite alarming in how small everyday things can effect out natural equilibrium.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MWpxH-RlFQ

    This link comes from a totally unrelated subject but apart from Guitars and Sound Modelling which I spend probably half of my time on the other half of my time I spend as a Monetary reform Activist this next link is a longish article with an even longer discussion regarding the economic system and its present troubles part of those troubles is actually routed in some of the false beliefs we adopt as a pavlovian response to expected rewardThe Gibson Guitar forum is an insignificant small caricature of this social dynamic. Part of what I really enjoy about the club here and our ongoing guitar party is that we are interested in each others music and guitars but beyond that the ideas and feelings communicated through the music which we produce.

    The UK Government has received a European Commission ultimatum to hand over £20 million within two months or face legal action. The wrangle is over the fact that import tariffs on frozen garlic from outside the EU are lower than the rates for fresh garlic. And, according to the Commission, UK authorities carelessly levied the lower rate applicable to frozen garlic on imports of the fresh product from China, in breach of EU customs rules.

    A Commission statement explained: “Between 2005 and 2006, the UK customs authorities allowed imports of fresh garlic from the People’s Republic of China under wrong authorising documents. They have erroneously stated that the goods imported were frozen garlic for which significantly lower import duties apply.

    Econosophy and other musings – Post a Comment 

    Another of the 21st Century Pamphlateers. Reading the comments Toby who writes Econosophy and other musings recounts talking to Parents of his daughter about the Leisure economy and Guaranteed Income I would call it something like the Social Dividend or Commons Dividend and it could be Spun as Churchills Net across the Abyss that no one is free to fall below. Anyway raising these questions on hbow things are done is so much like the Empreors New clothes Follow the link for a translation of the original.

    Blogger: Econosophy and other musings – Post a Comment:

    So off went the Emperor in procession under his splendid canopy. Everyone in the streets and the windows said, “Oh, how fine are the Emperor’s new clothes! Don’t they fit him to perfection? And see his long train!” Nobody would confess that he couldn’t see anything, for that would prove him either unfit for his position, or a fool. No costume the Emperor had worn before was ever such a complete success.
    “But he hasn’t got anything on,” a little child said.
    “Did you ever hear such innocent prattle?” said its father. And one person whispered to another what the child had said, “He hasn’t anything on. A child says he hasn’t anything on.”
    “But he hasn’t got anything on!” the whole town cried out at last.
    The Emperor shivered, for he suspected they were right. But he thought, “This procession has got to go on.” So he walked more proudly than ever, as his noblemen held high the train that wasn’t there at all.
    We are like that little Child speaking truth to the Grown ups Toby. This is a nice translation of the story we all so often recall. I for one have not read it even to my Children, I shall put that right at Bed time tonight.
