32E02E46-9BEB-4ED4-9837-17B66A6692B8

by patrick devlin Members of the Acme Arts Collective collaborate on an audio visual celebration of the end of nearly one hundred years of cannabis prohibition in the state of Illinois. The Green Leaves Sonic Triptych is comprised of three ambient improvisations by lichen on synthesizers and grumpy singlaub on effected guitars paired with videos by d.hopkins. Spanning over one hour, the improvisations explore droney ambient spaces and follow groovy downtempos with video that serenely celebrates both the in-studio recording and beauty of the cannabis plant. Contemplative, uplifting and slightly psychedelic, the sonic triptych embraces and intrigues…much like the effects […]

Re-name Columbus Day Indigenous Peoples’ Day : Patriotism, marketism, exceptionalism – destinyism? : The prison of the isms

712073DE-6D5C-41DF-B07E-DAC399073024

by Patrick Devlin Columbus day can be a warm day or a cold day (and this year was spectacular autumn falling through cool sunshine) but it always provides an opportunity to reflect on the day as a holiday representing as it does a kind of anachronistic celebration of manifest destiny – and we know that we have grown beyond all that…shameful as it is as a part of our history. It had to be someone, and it was Columbus who ‘discovered America’ and, among other accomplishments, initiated the Euro-American human trafficking biz. We are reminded of both the inhuman brutality […]

COVID News : CDC’s deleted draft has political waft

covid-19 C

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that a medically inaccurate draft its guidelines which censored reference to the internationally recognized fact that the coronavirus can spread from airborne transmission over a distance greater than six feet and also from exposure to tiny droplets and particles known as aerosols that can remain in the air for up to several hours for apparently crass political reasons had been updated to reflect actual medical fact.

Worker Solidarity, Eugene Debs and Why Labor Day is not International Workers Day

Worker Solidarity, Eugene Debs and Why Labor Day is not International Workers Day

‘It’s not difficult to figure out – are you a worker or an owner?’ g.singlaub by Patrick Devlin A salute to working women and men in America on Labor Day! Even after 50 years of stagnant wages, union-busting, job outsourcing, and the appalling lapdoggery of politicians in both legacy parties who serve the interests of the modern oligarchs – we are obliged to stand with our fellow workers and acknowledge that our work makes our land. And, remember also that it is not to enrich the selfish wealthy that we work…at least that is what Eugene Debs believed. “I am […]

Who says young adults can’t contract COVID19? Not the WHO

B99A35E8-6550-493C-997C-461BF6303021

With legions of brazen low information citizens in the US and the U.K. willingly providing fresh hosts for COVID19 to seed, whether (mis)informed by politicized preachers or (mis)guided by self-diagnosed immortality, the World Heath Organization warns these masses of malignant ‘me-firsters’ that their mindlessness may manifest in more of the menacing malady. The technical lead for the WHO’s Coronavirus task force, Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, cautioned recently that although “most of the people who are experiencing severe disease and ending up in ICU are people of older age (and) people who have underlying conditions”, the organization has recently seen “more […]

Funny: guy who gave felonious banks trillions warns public servants that social programs are expensive

By Patrick Devlin In an apparent effort to highlight one of the reasons why Americans do not have universal health care, the federal minimum wage has not been raised in ten years and a vast majority of Americans live “paycheck to paycheck”, the fabulously spendy former president Barack Obama told a group(ie) meeting of recently elected Democrats that they should dream big, but watch the pennies, as they pursue fairness and equity for all Americans and robust environmental protection as legislators. With no obvious sense of irony, the former president, who presided over gifting private banking companies that are owned […]

Christian zealot, and US official, celebrates secret media mass

by Patrick Devlin American Secretary of State, Mufti Mike Pompeo, called a press briefing prior to his leaving on a spiritual/political/imperialist sojourn to the ‘land of the Bible’ this week, without calling upon America’s press outlets. Gothi Pompeo instead summoned a select group of the chosen to receive the good news about his plot for the spiritual and economic domination of foreign peoples and lands. The media Saltigue were brought to communion at the behest of Dastur Pompeo who determined to exile journalists who are scribes for our nation’s heathen publications, including the New York Times and the Washington Post.

Iowa’s cracker King does the white nationalist thing

Iowa’s cracker King does the white nationalist thing

by Patrick Devlin Breaking news from Iowa, the land of the intolerant and ignorant: The unashamed cracker, Representative Steve King gave further demonstration to his constituents recently of his determination to continue to engage in racist tropes as he dog whistled derogatory comments negatively comparing his white voting base to people from New Orleans. Both groups are victims of catastrophic flooding. The intolerant and proud white nationalist Iowa politician told a group of red-necked constituents at a meet and greet yesterday, “We’re Iowans, and I’m always proud of our reaction to this… We go to a place like Iowa, and […]
