I feel sad for the trauma America is experiencing

This presidential election – stepping back and thinking about it – stepping back and feeling it, sensing its energy – more than anything I think its kind of sad, no matter what candidate wins or loses, its like America has already lost in some way. America is suffering over this. America is not happy.

Americans should step back and ask themselves honestly: Do we need this? With all the other things we need to be concerned about, is this how the leader is chosen for the highest elected office in government for the country?

Easily invoke a mystical energy in your private space


1 stereo, shelf system, boombox, or other audio system
1 laptop, computer, stereo, or other audio system


Play one type of audio stream (can be a type of music or soundtrack to any type of video) on the stereo, boombox, or other audio system. Keep the volume to just above the audible level. That is, the volume should be low, just above the threshold where you can discern what is actually playing. This is the background sound source.

Next, on the laptop, computer, or other audio system that is nearer to you play a different type of music or audio stream. Adjust the level so that it is equal to or perhaps just slightly higher than the other audio source. This is the primary sound source.

Pick a type of music for the primary source. For example new-agey or space-type music. The background source could be something more active. It could be a soundtrack from Japanese dramas. It could be dance music. Or you could reverse the sources and have something really slow in the background and something more busy in the foreground. Feel free to experiment.

When the two sources mix in your environment they will create a mystical energy that is really cool.

You can also play around with equalization settings for the two audio sources. Find the optimal eq for the background source and the primary source.

You can also have a fan or air purifier running in the background to create an extra lush effect that really makes you feel isolated from the outside world, in your own mystical space.

You can also do things in your mystical space like drink relaxing herbal teas, take baths, read, meditate, or just relax.

Sometimes I just like to let my mind wander and think of all kinds of fascinating things. For example you can visualize the Cosmos and different galaxies and celestial objects. You can imagine different types of energies and all these different, amazing beings across the universe.

Install MediaMonkey on Linux (Ubuntu 16.04 “Xenial”) using Wine

MediaMonkey 4.1.14 running happily on Kubuntu 16.04 "Xenial" Linux

MediaMonkey 4.1.14 running happily on Kubuntu 16.04 “Xenial” Linux

These are notes about installing MediaMonkey on Ubuntu 16.04 “Xenial” Linux. This information is also valid for Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Linux Mint, and probably Debian and other Debian-derived distributions.

I would give MediaMonkey an “almost gold” rating. For all intents and purposes it is working flawlessly although there might be some little issues.

The best reference is from MediaMonkey’s website which has a page Linux, Wine & MediaMonkey.

See my other page Install Photoshop and other Windows apps and games in Ubuntu for information on installing Wine using the official Wine PPA repository and on installing the latest version of winetricks. Both of those steps are required before proceeding below.

Once Wine and winetricks are installed the process to install MediaMonkey is as follows:

Install winbind

sudo apt-get install winbind

Set up a prefix for MediaMonkey

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.MediaMonkey ~/bin/winetricks

Select Install an application and click OK. However immediately click Cancel. In the next page that appears select Install a Windows DLL or Component. In the list of available components select and install the following:

vb6run vcrun6 vcrun6sp6 wsh56vb wmp10

When wmp10 installs it will install and launch Windows Media Player. The only reason this is installed is to get the codecs. Still, in the privacy settings window that appeared I unchecked everything.

Once all the components are installed and Winetricks returns to the previous screen, select Install a font and select and install corefonts.

Now exit Winetricks. It is not necessary to change any other setttings. Leave the Windows version of Wine set to the default Windows XP.

Install MediaMonkey

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.MediaMonkey wine MediaMonkey_4.1.14.1813.exe

The setup should run and complete normally. Note I did not install MediaMonkey as a portable installation and I left skinning support enabled. I unchecked the option to launch MediaMonkey at the end of the installation.

Install the MAD plugin

Without this plugin MediaMonkey won’t play mp3 files. Download the plugin from the MAD plugin website and install it:

WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.MediaMonkey wine MAD\ plug-in\ 0.14.2b.exe

It will ask for the path to install the plugin. Rather than the default path C:/Program Files/Winamp instead install it to C:/Program Files/MediaMonkey.

Using playlists from Windows

If you have a MediaMonkey instance running under Windows you can choose to export playlists as m3u files. However you will likely need to do a little slicing and dicing of the pathnames in order to get the playlist to work with your new MediaMonkey running under Linux.

At my home I have all my music on a network drive which is mounted one way on Windows systems and another way on Linux systems.

Here is a typical entry from a m3u playlist that was exported from a Windows machine:

..\Music\07 - Other Music\VA_-_Some_cool_music\a_track.mp3

In MediaMonkey on Linux select the File menu and then Open URL or File. Navigate to a file on the same drive as your music collection and open it. When the file is loaded right-click on it and select Properties and note the pathname of it. It might look something like:

Z:\home\user\storage1\Music\07 - Other Music\VA_-_Some_cool_music\a_track.mp3

On the Linux system I have mounted my network drive under /mnt/storage1 and then I created a symlink to /mnt/storage1 in my home directory: /home/user/storage1

Notice that that the paths are the same from Music until the end. It is just the beginning of the paths that needs to be modified. You can use Notepad++ to do a global search and replace or you can use Perl to perform an in-place regex substitution which I show below.

First, make a copy of the exported playlist.m3u. In this example I use playlist_copy.m3u:

perl -pi -e 's/^\.\./Z\:\\home\\user\\storage1/g' playlist_copy.m3u

[I know this might seem complex but here is a good reference on Perl regular expressions.]

In the modified playlist file the entries should now look like:

Z:\home\user\storage1\Music\07 - Other Music\VA_-_Some_cool_music\a_track.mp3

Now you can open the modified playlist from the File menu of MediaMonkey (File -> Open URL or File). All the songs should load and play normally. Note that this just loads the songs into Now Playing, it does not actually import or save the playlist. To save it follow the steps below:

Saving playlists

To save all the songs loaded in Now Playing first create a new playlist by right-clicking on the Playlist entry in the Media Tree in the left pane. Select New Playlist. Now on the right at the bottom of the Now Playing pane select List and Save Playlist. In the popup window select the playlist you just created and click the Save button.

Note that if it is a really long playlist it might take a very long time to save. One playlist I have with over 2,000 entries took almost 10 minutes to save. For some reason the file writing process is slower under Wine.

Install skins

Before copying over new skins it is necessary to open the Tools menu and select Options -> Skin (the very last entry at the bottom). Select any skin other than the default Metro M. This will show a preview of the skin. You can either click OK to keep it or Cancel to stay with the default. Either way, it will create the Skin directory inside the MediaMonkey config directory, which is what we need.

You can then copy your favorite skins from Windows using a graphical file manager like Dolphin. Copy it from the MediaMonkey Skins directory on the Windows computer which is usually C:\Users\your_name\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\Skins Skin files have the file extension .msz Copy any of the .msz skin files you want to your Linux MediaMonkey Skins folder which is under /home/your_name/.MediaMonkey/drive_c/users/your_name/Application Data/MediaMonkey/Skins

Crank it up!

Don’t forget about the excellent program PulseAudio Volume Control which allows the volume to be cranked up above 100%. I find it essential on my laptops.

sudo apt-get install pavucontrol

Final thoughts

I’m really blown away that I’ve got MediaMonkey installed and running right now under KDE Plasma in Kubuntu. I love it!

As I mentioned in the previous article about installing Photoshop under Wine, I truly hope that this article will encourage people to ditch Windows and make the switch to using Linux.

The globalist tyranny that hides behind the lies, deception, and manipulation

slave auction flyer

The actions of globalists have been going on for a long time. Dutch spice traders ruthlessly murdered and enslaved people of the East Indies (Indonesia) in the 17th century to force them to labor on plantations.

Portuguese and British slave traders brought slaves to the New World and forced them to work on plantations for hundreds of years.

The globalists are still around today. They are now flooding western countries with vast hordes of “refugees” and “migrants”, destroying communities, destroying opportunities for their own citizens, crushing dreams and ruining their cultures.

Just as water fluoridation was claimed to be beneficial to health (specifically to teeth) and promoted by the United States government for the sake of indemnifying the Department of Defense and its contractors from litigation related to the extremely harmful health effects of chronic exposure to fluoride which is a byproduct of the production of weapons-grade uranium, the huge influx of invaders is being promoted as beneficial to “the economy”, as being humanitarian, etc. etc.

What is most appalling however is the extensive lies and deception and the fact they completely fail to admit to any discussion or debate about policies regarding immigration.

Instead, they equate anyone who wants to discuss the issue or – Heaven forbid – is actually opposed to the swarm of immigrants the vast majority of whom cannot even read, write, nor speak English – they equate it with racism and worse.

I would like to say that, contrary to Hilary Clinton and the globalist oligarchy for which she is a shill, there’s a huge difference between wanting to throw people in gas chambers and opposing illegal immigration.

The globalists are completely unwilling to have a discussion about the issue. They are forcing it upon their peoples despite the huge consequences and they are forbidding there to be any rational debate or discussion about it.

This is the globalists in action. They are the same people who enslaved people in the 17th and 18th centuries. Their methods have changed, but they are doing the same thing. The consequences are also ecologically dire as Planet Earth is pushed far beyond its carrying capacity and huge disasters like the Gulf Oil Spill will become more commonplace as more and more resources are exploited on unimaginably vast scales to supply these huge populations they are creating.

The sad thing is that a lot of well-intentioned people are accepting what is happening out of a sense of guilt. Its important for people to understand that they are not responsible for the actions of globalists in the past nor the present. I can assure you that my ancestors – poor people from southern, eastern, and western Europe – had nothing to do with the globalist slave trade. And even though our ancestors had nothing to do with the slave trade, they also paid the price in various ways as communities have been destroyed and opportunities lost because of its long-term negative effects.

To feel responsible or guilty for the actions of globalists is muddled thinking. People should feel proud of their heritage and also clear about it. We are honest, hard working people. We built America – its roads, its buildings, its great institutions – with our own hands. We fought for it and paid the price in blood.

Now that precious sweat and blood is being spent by lying globalists, claiming to be humanitarians. People like Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Joe Biden in their supreme arrogance believe that they are entitled to give away the blood of our ancestors so that they can score humanitarian brownie points. But that sweat and blood is not theirs to give away. America is not theirs to destroy for the sake of their sick agendas.

To me that is what the meme Pepe is about. It is about awareness of the situation and how globalists and their shills are deliberately manipulating people while they destroy our culture.

It is also about awareness of things like the Jewish bankers and their globalist agenda. How much money did Clinton get from Goldman Sachs? Why hasn’t the actual reason the 9/11 attacks occurred – because of the actions of Israel against the Palestinian people and other acts of atrocity in the middle East including the West’s support of autocratic, dictatorial, brutal regimes – being discussed?

If they sometimes use provocative images to get the point across about the destructive actions of Goldman Sachs, George Soros, and their agendas so much the better. People should be asking why the globalist Jewish bankers are dictating American foreign policy and why America continues to support Israel and dictators in the middle east.

Hillary Clinton is a globalist through and through. She is no different than the Portuguese slave traders, only more sly. She is just as willing to inflict suffering upon vast numbers of people as the Portuguese slave traders were. Her Clinton Foundation was more than willing to cut deals with third-world dictator/thugs – who tyrannize their own populations – for the sake of huge profits for her friends and family. Hillary Clinton is a globalist thug and money is what talks with her, regardless of how dirty it is and how much tyranny lies behind it.

Behind it all is tyranny against the hard-working peoples of western countries who are now being betrayed and are watching their cultures crumble and their communities rot.

America and the world is starting to stand up against the globalists, against the ivy-league oligarchs, media pundits, and politicians who are destroying the western world and causing new forms of enslavement and catastrophe.

On the issue of competence let’s get straight to the point: The person who is President of the United States is also ultimately responsible for the CIA and the military. Its no secret that the CIA is run by the Department of State and, as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the head of the CIA.

I don’t like the way Obama and Hillary ran the CIA and the military. I think they were corrupt and incompetent. Hillary used her position as Secretary of State, as head of the CIA, to cut extremely lucrative pay-to-play deals. In addition, her and Obama and the rest of their staff bungled too many areas of foreign relations.

I do not want these people to continue running America. Donald Trump will pick more competent and far more honest and dedicated people for critical positions within the government. We do not need lying, globalist, profiteers out to make big $$$ for themselves in these critical positions. We need good, honest people who sincerely want to help America and do what is best not just for Americans but for the entire world.

I know that Donald Trump is running for president because he truly cares about America. He has enough money that he could literally buy an island somewhere and retire. Instead he has chosen to take a stand for our country which is clearly failing its people and failing in so many ways.

He deliberately places himself in the firing line of continual media hits, attacks, and slanders so that he can get his message out, so that he can become our president and fix the damage caused by a negligent, highly corrupt, incompetent oligarchy.

Please vote against globalism, tyranny, lies, and deception. Please vote for Donald Trump on November 8.



Is sometimes a slow process

Can start from a seemingly, disorganized, chaotic beginning

Requires perseverance, dedication, devotion, and patience

Requires *love*

Is founded upon intention

Is what we do naturally when we are the way we’re supposed to be

One thing about where I live

The area I live in has some amazing music. Absolutely amazing, mind-blowing, spirit-uplifting, epiphany-inducing dance music!

Its important to appreciate it!

I love the fact that there are other crazy people like me who love to dance their asses off 🙂

No matter what else you do in life go out and dance sometimes. Dance like crazy. Open up to the highest cosmic energy and channel the energy fearlessly and lovingly!

I’m so happy I’m a healthy vegan too, because I don’t need any kind of substances to uplift me beyond good music and good energy.

Cosmic energy is the ultimate high.

Today I had a realization: When you are channeling cosmic energy its ok to just let it happen. Part of the wisdom of tranquil abiding is to just let cosmic energy flow naturally and not have to worry or think about it. It doesn’t matter what it “means”, what anyone thinks, or anything. Its just natural and wholesome like breathing.
