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 […]

#BarbaraYankey Stuns Science with Discovery of Human Hair Heart Stopping Syndrome

by Patrick Devlin cross posted at mLaw #BarbaraYankey, a self-described “scientist”, has made worldwide headlines again this week with her team’s discovery of what they are calling “Human-Hair Heart Stopping Syndrome.” The shocking discovery was reported by graduate student (meaning, not yet a doctor) #Yankey, who currently goes to school at Georgia State University. Yankey made headlines earlier this week when she reported that the cardiovascular risks of consuming #cannabis exceed those of consuming tobacco – a strange “scientific” finding given that the US government reports that tobacco kills more than 400,000 citizens every year and also has reported year […]

Trump-thugs: The most fabulous and violent narrow-mindedness America has ever seen (yet)

Trump-thugs: The most fabulous and violent narrow-mindedness America has ever seen (yet)

by Patrick Devlin As the bully-boy coward Donald Trump spoke at a rally at a Christian college on January 20 in Oklahoma, a gang of his middle-aged flabby thugs assaulted audience members who chose to silently protest the public event. Strangely, for this audience of self-proclaimed Christian Trump-thugs, no one mentioned the words of Jesus; “I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.” The assaults have now become […]

Universal soldiers and terrestrial body counts

Universal soldiers and terrestrial body counts

by Patrick Devlin When a terror event happens scared Americans, shaken from their consumer product induced coma, often begin demanding answers. After the inhuman and insane Paris attacks many citizens, perhaps overcome with fear and anger, demanded to know how faithful Muslims could have let the attacks happen and demanded that Muslim communities take responsibility for and apologize for the attacks. This strain of fetid group think was shown in all of its intricate bigotry, know-nothingness and apoplectic xenophobia on CNN as two of its talking head news announcers aggressively demanded an apology from a member of the Parisian Muslim […]

A Thank/sgiving Day Appreciation

A Thank/sgiving Day Appreciation

by Patrick Devlin Thank you NSA, for deciding that I cannot have privacy…ever : your fascism is breathtaking. Thank you oligarchs, for decimating the middle class and ending class mobility forever : your greed is stultifying. Thank you industrial farmers, for killing the soil with chemicals : your destroying biodiversity is unceasing. Thank you media moguls, for neutering necessary news and for creating ‘infotainment’ : your selling out democracy is complete. Thank you Christian zealots, for excusing your bigotry by twisting theology : your interpretations justify child killing. Thank you Republicans, for mixing class war, imperial war & religious war […]

War is a racket…would you like to buy some surplus military hardware?

War is a racket…would you like to buy some surplus military hardware?

by Patrick Devlin In Sonny Boy Williamson’s song called “Decoration Day” he sings that his deceased wife asked him before she passed to bring flowers to her grave on every Decoration Day. Already a holiday of remembrance for the nearly half a million Civil War dead when the song was recorded in Aurora, IL in 1938, Sonny Boy’s wife asks him that he pay respects to her while he is at the graveyard on Decoration Day honoring the memory of our fallen soldiers. The years tick by, the number of fallen ‘warriors’ (in today’s parlance) rises unabated and we stand […]
