I found this interesting robot reading of a Cass Suntein report on conspiracy theory, so i decided to make a conspiracy step song at 140 bpm it’s pretty straight forward stuff and should be easy to mix into a bunch of different style  sets. Below are links to the original file for you to make your own, he says some pretty funny stuff, check it out, clever fellow. it’s long and it isn’t a great song or anything, what’s important is some of the stuff he say’s, great foundation to throw stuff on top of, have fun kids.

Abstract:
Many millions of people hold conspiracy theories; they believe that powerful people have worked together in order to withhold the truth about some important practice or some terrible event. A recent example is the belief, widespread in some parts of the world, that the attacks of 9/11 were carried out not by Al Qaeda, but by Israel or the United States. Those who subscribe to conspiracy theories may create serious risks, including risks of violence, and the existence of such theories raises significant challenges for policy and law. The first challenge is to understand the mechanisms by which conspiracy theories prosper; the second challenge is to understand how such theories might be undermined. Such theories typically spread as a result of identifiable cognitive blunders, operating in conjunction with informational and reputational influences. A distinctive feature of conspiracy theories is their self-sealing quality. Conspiracy theorists are not likely to be persuaded by an attempt to dispel their theories; they may even characterize that very attempt as further proof of the conspiracy. Because those who hold conspiracy theories typically suffer from a crippled epistemology, in accordance with which it is rational to hold such theories, the best response consists in cognitive infiltration of extremist groups. Various policy dilemmas, such as the question whether it is better for government to rebut conspiracy theories or to ignore them, are explored in this light.

Ok, this has been a dream of mine for almost 20 years:  Get a large abandoned building in the warehouse district part of town, you know the type of building: over a hundred years old, freight elevator, bricks, big wooden floors, loft style spaces. Create a storefront, simple gallery space cafe incubator style accommodations.   Have at least one large open area for large art shows, music events, fundraising events etc.  then the rest of the building is used for housing the artists, studio space, workshops, printing presses, kiln, darkroom, any type of equipment that helps artists make art.

Believe me I’ve been close to realizing this dream with 2 very large projects that involved lot’s of    people but they were business world geared ventures   (they never listen to the crazy artist guy, it’s always “hey did you get that new website up? we need those t-shirts? you don’t want us to pay you to let you perform at our show do you?”)

I’m currently involved with The Poor Souls Society people, who seem to be on there way to achieving something similar to this

So far i have found one amazing group in London who seem to get it

these guys are amazing and have come up with several things i never dreamed of       Crisis center for ending homelessness

scroll to bottom of this page to watch the video

go to that second link and watch the video, you will be amazed, Please God help me get something like this going here

What are you talking about now Stephen?

This may sound crazy but it’s really a total simple logical obvious thing:

cargo shipping containers are everywhere all over the world, you don’t have to drive very far in any city on the entire planet to find one of these things abandoned in a vacant lot.  Every Dock has the facilities already in place to move them around very efficiently, the systems for moving them by boat plane train truck and even helicopter are all already in place and being used daily.  They are a solid structure, easily modified, and when you drop them on a piece of land you don’t need a building permit, lot’s of regulations and red tape can be avoided in areas where this may cause a problem

I’m by far not the first to come up with this idea

The daily green article on shipping container homes

whole website dedicated to cargo container living

Tokyo design week competition

If you really think about this it’s a no brainer, slap some solar panles on top maybe a pop up wind turbine (think of it as a sailboat sucking air and wind for energy conversion)

it wouldn’t take much to get this rolling full steam and we could use up the millions of these things that are just laying around everywhere

Ok, here’s how it goes, a simple black/white image on the front. Make sure you have some info about your good will intentions, charity etc. make sure to put web address on there. On the back you can sell sponsor logo space.

Create a not for profit 501 c 3 for all the  money to go to/ come from, and to manifest all your good works from.  For instance this one here is for this blog site and it’s quest to do what God’s will is.

All the money will go toward this goal, we don’t have any sponsors for the back yet, so if you want to get on this near the top, give us a call.

Ideally this would have an event date, time and location also. then to lower the per print cost you get a stack of heavy paper to increase the print count with paper that costs cents instead of shirts that cost dollars. If you work your formulas out right you can literally get shirts for as low as 2 bucks a piece and have most if not all of your costs covered by the sponsors on the back of the shirt.   This is a real shirt, and soon to be a real not for profit 501 c 3, with a board fo directors consisting of church leaders from multiple denominations, theologians and philanthropists

contact Stephen at my custom union printed T-shirt business in St. Louis MO

Everyone wears T-shirts, turn on a tv to a show on starving kids in Africa, if they poorest of the poor wear t-shirts, everyone does, walk down the street, count the number of t-shirts, open up your drawers, count how many are in there.  Now imagine making a custom thing that you can put whatever you want on it and imagine that thing cost you as low as $2 to make and can be sold for $10 or more.

Remember the cost of printing goes down as number of prints go up, those prints don’t have to be on T-shirts.

Great advertising for your cause, great morale booster for your volunteers.

We are on a quest to…

Know God’s Will

Artists, Writers, Bloggers, Researchers, needed

I’m Serious About this folks, i printed the first one yesterday, i actually have white ink in the screen right now, I’ll get a pic up soon, i promise

i have 3 dark shirts, ringers a couple of them, all size large I’ll let em go for $10 you cover shipping (we can do the us mail little box thing it’s like way cheap)

I will probably be selling the white tee style with black ink (it will look like the pic above) for $10 as well to start with

if i get some sponsors for the back, cost will go down to like $5 (lower for bulk with your logo on back)

and if i can get these things goin right, we can get the cost down to like $3 to someone buying it and still raise millions for charity

literally save the world,  I’m not kidding

I hereby pledge to have totally open books on these shirts from day one, this is my gift to the world

seriously

as of right now there is only one and I’m wearing it

I Seriously do not get how no one can understand this I Literally know hundreds of people who put on events

  • you can get your cost per piece down to $2 (or lower) per shirt, no more than $5 bucks per shirt total cost printed
  • you also get prints on paper that can potentially sell at fine art prices ($100+)
  • and you can easily have them paid for before you print by sponsors

This seems so simple and people come to me all the time and end up being disappointed with prices and costs

Biggest mistakes people do when they try to get shirts printed

  • they want lots of colors on little amounts of shirts
  • they have no idea what they want from the artist and make him redo and change the concept 20 times
  • they expect you to be creative immediately on a complicated thing that they themselves have spent months trying to visualize and still can’t
  • they complicate the shirt more and more and want it faster, there is a wide variation on types of prints and how difficult they are
  • a print shop loses money on orders all the time in hopes of that bigger job that comes next
  • a steady client gets things printed for way less than they should
  • a one time client HAS to be charged a high amount unless the job is big enough, find that tipping point
