Ether in the Attic

Oh my, life is so great and blissful.

This week on Ether in the Attic, Hubcap Walter reminisces about the good Ol' days of the 21st century, Pre-Utopia. Things were hard then. Not that hard, but hard if you were soft. Things are soft now, and hard things are softer. Except rocks. Rocks were always hard, didn't matter when, except for pumice. That stuff is pretty interesting considering its a rock. It floats for crying out loud. That's something you can't in this damned "Utopia!"

Aboriginal Outlet - Episode#4 - Aboriginal Role Models

First Nations pride themselves in their culture.  I was able to interview three people who show a different aspect to their culture.  I have Tracey Peters, a Traditional Lillooet Dancer; she performed on Aboriginal Day at Lheidli T'enneh Memorial Park.  I have Clayton Gauthier who is a FN artist and he makes his own drums.  He has his first book, "The Salmon Run." I also have Jennifer Annais Pighin, she is a well-known artist.  She is also a teacher and is part of the Khast'an Drummers.  

Clayton and Jennifer can be found on Facebook, if you are interested in looking at some of their artwork. Thanks for listening.

This Week's Top Wikipedia Edits: Show Homes can be Built and Sold like any Other House

According to Wikipedia:

  • "The aluminum air battery was invented in 1989 in the city of Montario" 
  • "The original grandfather clauses were contained in new state constitutions and Jim Crow laws passed by white-dominated state legislatures from 1890 to 1908 in most of the Southern United States to restrict voter rolls and effectively prevent African Americans, Mexican Americans, and poor white people from voting.... White Democrats developed statutes and passed new constitutions creating restrictive voter registration rules. Examples included the imposition of poll taxes and residency and literacy tests.... The term 'grandfather clause' arose from the fact that the laws tied the then-current generation's voting rights to those of their grandfathers"
  • People go to school and learn the alphabet, so "why did you even need to make the alphabet on this crappy encyclopedia if you can just go ask a random teacher and learn it?"
  • "Show homes are often built in such a way that they can be sold like any other house, and as such are connected to electrical and telephone cables and have functioning water systems"
