Daily Beast Revealed as Propaganda Rag

Shards of Truth in MH17 Investigation (But not at Daily Beast)

Doing what the Dutch investigation has so far declined to do – smear the separatists and Russia – the “Daily Beast” comes up with a belated hit piece, adding exactly nothing new, but taking the opportunity to repeat the US propaganda line…

‘How can you tell it’s a smear job,’ you ask?

The one link to any opposing ideas goes to a discredited piece of obvious disinformation, that infamous Photoshopped picture of an attacking plane [above]. The Daily Beast uses the smarmy jibe, “as some Russian media claimed,” to pretend they’ve actually looked at both sides of the debate. They have not, and will not.

My response there won’t post, so I’m annoyed. Perhaps they have my email and/or IP address on their list as well. But their site won’t put it through, not in Chrome, Opera nor Microsoft Internet Explorer.… Read the rest

Sasquatch Screams Recorded in Missouri

What do you all think? What’s making those scream? Is it all a hoax?

via Cryptozoology News:

A researcher believes he has recorded the screams of ‘Sasquatch’ in the southwestern Missouri part of the Ozark mountains.

Randy Savig, a disabled 50-year-old that has been investigating the Bigfoot phenomenon for over three years, says the audio recorder captured the alleged screams at 10.30 p.m. in an area known as Pine Ridge.

“For the most part I do audio work,” he told Cryptozoology News. “This was the first time I have been able to catch this close enough for it to be fairly clear,” he added.

The audio file, which lasts close to three minutes, was reportedly recorded with a parabolic microphone and it represents a series of unidentified howls interrupted by dog barks and a train whistle. As soon as the train sounds subside, the howls resume.

“We were at camp about a mile away,” says Savig.

Rock N’ Roll Samizdat: Soviet Era Bootleg Records Pressed From X-Ray Film

xrayLaughing Squid shares several remarkable examples of Soviet era audio samizdat. Neat stuff. Kind of spooky looking, too. Click through the link below to see the rest.

With vinyl scare and various western music genres like rock and roll and jazz banned in 1950s Soviet Russia, enterprising music fans would create records using X-ray film discarded by doctors and hospitals. The records were cut with scissors — often unevenly — with a cigarette hole burned through the middle of the platter and the music itself pressed onto the film using a special recording device. The result is a “multimedia” record that, when held up to light, reveals the skeletal structure left over from the film’s original use.

Listen to Rare Recording of Aldous Huxley MIT Lecture on Visionary Experiences

huxley_visionaryThe fine folks at Open Culture have unearthed another treasure: A 1962 recording of Aldous Huxley lecturing on visionary experiences. I’m guessing albums like these were the TED talks of their day. Unfortunately, I can’t figure out how to embed it, but you can listen to it here

Via Open Culture:

Having transplanted himself from his native England to California in 1937, he eventually achieved great regard among the region’s self-styled intellectuals and spiritual seekers, giving talks at such mystically high-in-the-zeitgeist places as Hollywood and Santa Barbara’s Vedanta temples and even Big Sur’s famous Esalen Institute. But the prolific speech-giver also went farther afield, to far squarer venues such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. There, in 1962, he recorded the album Visionary Experience: A Series Of Talks On The Human Situation:

Disney’s New Microphone Allows Transfer of Secret Audio Message by Placing Finger to Ear

imagesCodename “Wet Willy.” Soon to be followed by the private text message deliver system, “Pull My Finger.” Olfactory messenger app “Smell My Finger” is already in beta test. Tech bloggers are currently researching a new hot app called “FingerBang.”

Via Wired.

Disney researchers have developed a microphone that lets a user record a voice message and then relay that message to another person simply by touching them with a finger.

The microphone converts the voice message into an inaudible signal which is transmitted to the body of the person holding the microphone as an inaudible signal. It can then be transmitted from that person’s body to another person’s body through touch. The recorded sound only becomes audible when touching someone else’s ear. Their ear canal acts as a sort of speaker, allowing them to listen to a secret finger-transmitted message. The sound can’t be heard by anyone else but the person being touched
