The Man Who Stole America’s Soul

How do we endure this nightmare any longer? How do we accomplish the immediate task to remove the metastisizing cancer-mouth from the WH? We suffer in a stew of his venomous finger-tapping. Can someone PLEASE stop his Twitter account by any means necessary?

Today as he walks into church on Easter Sunday, Don the Con decides to rain hellfire and damnation on our nation’s Dreamers (AGAIN). Another piece of my soul drips out onto the rug. We “NEED WALL” 3-feet-wide and 420-feet-high built around this inhumane snake oil talisman. His hourly execrable tweets ramp up the nation’s ire. Be gone, demon!

DonTheCon   LOCK HIM UP!  LOCK HIM UP!

Here are a few biblical passages on “deceiving” which I find apropos to this Easter Sunday day of Redemption:

  • 2 Timothy 3:13  While evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
  • Leviticus 19:11  You shall not steal; you shall not deal falsely; you shall not lie to one another.
  • Revelation 12:9  And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

The soul of America has been lost many times over and redeemed on few occasions, but this time I feel that America enters the possessed state of eternal damnation.

Let us forget not the memory of the dark deeds of white evangelicals on an Easter Sunday in our past…

Let us forget not the horrible deeds of the 45th sitting illegally-elected President of the UnTied States.

Oh, please Chinese space station plummeting back to earth: can you land on Mar-A-Lago later today?

For me, today is not a day for cute bunnies, colored eggs, and sugary peeps. Today is the day to stand tall in the resistance.

About danaj33

I have been teaching in the Broadcast Electronic Media Art department at City College of San Francisco since 2001. I was a part-time faculty member until 2009 when I became full-time. My career as an audio engineer spans 27 years since the first day I began to record and mix songs on my Tascam PortaStudio (cassetter 4-track) in the early 80's while attending college at UC Berkeley. I formed a couple of bands and sang lead (sometimes playing rhythm guitar) until 1988 when I discovered that the "behind-the-scenes" tech realm was much more to my liking. I love how an audio engineer controls the ENTIRE sound mix, and not just one's own instrument. I then began a career as a live sound engineer in earnest and have toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe as front-of-house sound engineer for a multitude of bands on various record labels (most notably "Medicine" on American Recordings) and have been a staff engineer at the venerable Bottom of the Hill nightclub since their inception in 1991. The club and its staff are like family. I have maintained a live sound production company since 1989 called dcj Productions that has provided sound to the Bay Area community (mostly in the non-profit sector) in both large outdoor sound events as well as nightclubs and music halls. In 1991, I started recording bands on an 8-track Tascam TSR-8 analog tape recorder and moved into the digital realm in 1993 to 16-tracks of Alesis ADAT connected to a Soundcraft Ghost console in my home studio. In 1995, I advanced to Pro Tools and have been recording exclusively digital ever since, combining audio skills in sound for film as a location recordist as well as an engineer in post-production sound design and mixing. I remained "strictly analog" in my live sound mixing until just this past year (2012). Now that one can obtain a decent, live sound digital mixer at an affordable price, it was high time to check out digital for live. I now have a Presonus StudioLive 16.4.2 to work on with my students to give them much needed hands-on experience with a digital console. I co-owned and ran APG Records & APG Studios, an SF record label and recording studio, from 1999 - 2004 which had a distribution deal through EMI. The company folded in 2004. I continue to record music and engineer live performances at many Bay Area venues in addition to full-time teaching at CCSF. In 2001, I was hired to the part-time faculty at City College of San Francisco in the Broadcast Electronics Media Arts department where I have taught many of the classes including Digital Media Skills (BCST119), Basic Audio Production (BCST120), Digital Audio Production (BCST124), Sound Recording Studio (BCST125), Sound For Visual Media (BCST126), Advanced Sound Recording (BCST127), Sound Reinforcement (BCST128), Audio for the Web (BCST135), Video for the Web (BCST136), and Field Video Production (BCST145). I have also taught classes in sound design, audio for animation and games, music video, and computer applications at Art Institute of California-San Francisco, Globe Recording Institute, and Laney College in Oakland, CA. A few CCSF Projects: - Produced a promotional video for the Math department Bridge Program titled "Quadratic Rap". - Produced a new employee orientation video for the Human Resources department at CCSF - Coordinated audio for camera - SF Mayoral Debate, Fall 2011 - Coordinator of Audio Industry Advisory Panel for BEMA, Fall 2011 - Co-Coordinator of Video Industry Advisory Panel for BEMA, Spring 2012 Outside Affiliations: - past Vice President and Interim President Board of Directors - Bay Area Girls Rock Camp - past volunteer/contributor to Women's Audio Mission - past member Bay Area Women in Media and Film - current member of Audio Engineering Society - current Board of Directors for Camp Reel Stories
