"Pioneer in the design of books, annual reports, and other printed material that relied on meticulous attention to the details of page composition, the elegance of simple type presentation, and the juxtaposition of elements on a page. His hallmarks were impeccably clear design, brilliant colors, smart typography, and an adherence to particular geometric foundations." via

Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.
John Coltrane in Jazz (dir. Ken Burns, 2000)
truly one of the greatest ever.
Modified Runoffgroove Tri-Vibe. Great circuit and a true vibrato, the only changes here are a slower rate range and a little more depth.
The goal was to get a vibrato circuit that could give me a “Boards of Canada in a box” sound. A lot of the perceived “human element” in BoC’s songs, in my opinion, comes from the way that everything seems to be played back through an old misadjusted tape deck. There’s wow, flutter, and pitch warble all over the place, typically pretty slow and shallow.
I don’t normally care for pitch mod effects. I like this circuit because there’s a wide sweet spot for subtle dreamy detuning. It’s not wild at all, and not gimmicky. The switch allows two levels of dry mixing which yield above-average phaser sounds.

exclusion act in 1882
This man has a name. His name is Frank Embree.
He was falsely accused of raping a 14-year-old white girl.
Embree maintained his innocence but confessed after receiving over 100 lashes.
With tears pouring down his face, he agreed to own up to the charges if the police agreed not to torture him any further.
He was castrated, skinned (front and back), lynched and burned alive in front of a cheering crowd on July 23, 1889.
If you are American this is your history, don’t ignore it. Make sure that you make up for it by changing America today.
