Updated Art - Music : Added “Harmonica Reference Charts”

You can take Latin two ways!

You can either look at declinations horizontally or vertically and the same goes for a lot of other things. The point being that no matter what your personal preference is… Okay, it’s all right if you have a personal preference when it comes to studying Latin.

As naughty as it may be, sorry, I just watched a dramedy-series with a dominatrix and the associated bondage, as a harmonica player, you just have to take it both ways: absolute and relative; if you want to understand it. “Well, do you?” I’m just going to stick with, “Punk!”

The charts include the chromatic harmonica, all twelve keys ten hole diatonic Richter-tuning, with their associated absolute pitch charts, relative pitch charts, and as a bonus, for all twelve keys, the twelve positions you can start on with their name and number, based on the Circle of Fifths.

Updated Art : Added section “Art - Music” with article on the Chromatic Harmonica

Embodiment is the answer!

How does your instrument work? How do you make your body work for you instead of against you? How do you examine absolute pitch sets? How do you analyze relative pitch sets? How do you find patterns that are easier to memorize than key-specific interpretations of musical scales and chords? And what’s the best approach to practicing them and playing them? Questions one ponders when learning to play, aye? (Did you notice how it stays formal by using ‘one’, but not too formal by adding the ‘aye’?) I’ll at least answer a couple of them for you…

Updated Art - Writing : Added sci-fi short “Countering Clovis”

What does it really mean to have the majority?

Some people cheer, because they have a square, and they feel that that’s the democracy, but do they really have the democracy? Isn’t it better to say, “You may have a square, but we have the democracy?”

To fight is a part of life, but when do you fight? When do you wager? When do you plan? When do you wait?

These questions aren’t always that easy to answer, but one thing they are: necessary to answer before any kind of conflict should be engaged in. Think, reason, and above all else, feel.

Updated Sophism - Physiology : Added Article on the Limitation to Light Speed as the Maximum

It’s just a proper and correct explanation on why we will never be able to go faster than light…

I don’t know why anyone would consider that important. Did I also mention that it is a really short read, about half a page? Big ideas, few words. Elevator pitch that!

Updated Politics - Party Program : Cancel the Minister’s veto on public network wages!

For a representative democracy this seems terribly autocratic…

According to the media-law in the Netherlands (2008, article 2.3 paragraph 4) as Minister of Education, Culture, and Science one determines all by oneself what the proper maximum wages are at the public networks, that cleverly seem to circumvent all laws for the general public in terms of the right to union or set up a foundation, which means that you are allowed to make lots of money, as long as you do as the Minister tells you to.

Seriously, I’m tired of the constant newspeak thing we have in the Netherlands, much like anyone else. Okay, I have to admit, they came up with a solution: silence Dutch news completely and I don’t know what is true of foreign news.

Anyway, the quality of our public television network sucks and the only people saying that they do a great job are politicians and the people that work for the public networks. They get selected because they present the news neutrally, which is a nice way of saying they don’t have empathy, which also makes their presentation style highly unsympathetic, not to mention that they are silent on or neutralize murder unions, hard drug stores, and other illegal activities that the government stimulates by financing the public networks to revolt against the system.

Are you looking for a fascist government with every single symptom of it being a fascist government, including considering the option of concentration camps? I don’t see it. Nuh-uh! Not here! Not the Netherlands! We’re a country that prides itself that it’s efficient! Ask Hitler, the families of the Jews we exterminated, and the judges that condoned and supported it and were allowed to stay on after WW II.

I was brought up with the idea that my great grandfather as a Mayor provided food to the people during the hunger winter and that he didn’t collaborate with the Nazis (a minority of Dutch, Germans, and all other peoples), but according to my grandmother who married his son, he was a cold man. Also, he was a Mayor of countryside towns where they didn’t have a shortage of food, so did he make sure the cities in the west were supplied with food? I spare no one. I want an investigation. My grandfather was as sweet as can be, but some of my family-members aren’t, so what am I to make of that? 

The main question being: when will the cold prolongation of WW II in the Netherlands finally end and when will we get peace instead of oppression? No more fascism! No more psychopathic and sociopathic judges! We want our system of law and our democracy to be upheld!
