Another piece of the video of me jamming. . . with some weirdness thrown in. . . for good measure. . .
Played on a Yamaha SA2000 plugged straight in to a Peavey VTM 120 Half-Stack.
Recorded live with a digital camcorder. The music was played by a Russian (collegiate level, I believe) jazz group recorded live in 1974 that I was jamming to. I added the movie sound clips and pics with Windows Movie Maker. . .
Centauri Emperor: How will this end?
Doc Holiday: Well, I s'pose I'm deranged. . .
Bill The Butcher: Is your mouth all glued up with cunny juice? I asked you a question. . .
Ambassador Kosh: Aahh. . . You seek meaning. . . Reflection. . . Surprise. . . Terror. . . For the future. . .
Don't Forget To RATE IT!
Thanks To Quade77 For The Evil Pic Idea!
Well . . There it is. . .

India now has the bragging rights for creating the cheapest computer tablet in the world- the $35 “Aakash” (pron: uh-kosh), which means “Sky” in Hindi. Newsx has more.
“The groundbreaking device comes with a touch screen, 2GB of RAM, WiFi connectivity, and USB ports. There’s no word yet on what kind of software will be used on the device, which often significantly drives up the cost.”
But it isn’t just about a cheap tablet.The BBC reports, developer DataWind (pron: like the two words) and the Indian government paired to provide tablet technology to impoverished students, who otherwise couldn’t afford it.
“Experts say it does have the potential to make a huge difference to the country's education, particularly in rural areas where schools and students do not have access to libraries and up-to-date information.”
Aakash is meant to help push more Indian students into higher education.
Currently, only 7 percent of Indian students graduate from high school.
India’s Human Resources Development Minister called the device a technological milestone. VentureBreat quotes him as saying...
“The rich have access to the digital world, the poor and ordinary have been excluded. Aakash will end that digital divide.”
Datawind hopes to eventually lower the cost of each device to under $20 - but how does it stack up to more expensive cousins? Tech-exclusive compared the top-selling, $500 iPad 2 with the Aakash, and concludes...
“There is absolutely no comparison…iPad 2 literally stands ahead in all aspects as compared to Aakash tablet.”
Adding, “Indian government and manufacturers of the cheapest tablet have dumped some of the important features… to maintain the low price of the device.”
But the developers say Aakash is less about retail, and more about providing cheap technology to help students. On this point, the HR minister considers the tablet a success.
“There are some moments in history, which will be milestones, recognized by future generations. This is one such moment. Today, we see the beginning of a dream realized. A dream in which every student, in every corner of this country, will have access to technology.”
Tech exclusive reports the tablet will be available for retail purchase - with bumped up specs under the name UbiSlate - by the end of October for $60.

Kicking off a riveting sci-fi trilogy, National Book Award winner Pete Hautman plunges us into a world where time is a tool - and the question is, who will control it?
The first time his father disappeared, Tucker Feye had just turned thirteen. The Reverend Feye simply climbed on the roof to fix a shingle, let out a scream, and vanished - only to walk up the driveway an hour later, looking older and worn, with a strange girl named Lahlia in tow. In the months that followed, Tucker watched his father grow distant and his once loving mother slide into madness. But then both of his parents disappear. Now in the care of his wild Uncle Kosh, Tucker begins to suspect that the disks of shimmering air he keeps seeing - one right on top of the roof - hold the answer to restoring his family. And when he dares to step into one, he's launched on a time-twisting journey - from a small Midwestern town to a futuristic hospital run by digitally augmented healers, from the death of an ancient prophet to a forest at the end of time. Inevitably, Tucker's actions alter the past and future, changing his world forever.
