James Prattas has been leading a five year project in progressing the T102, a product designed to introduce natural solutions to a global problem. We are all exposed to UV radiation, Satellite Signals, Wi-FI, and many other environmental toxins in our modern life. Our goal is to provide a safe new proven scientific alternative to minimize UV radiation and the resulting skin cancers and melanomas.

The science and technology behind these incredible shirts consist of magnetic T1O2 Titanium particles that are combined with Nano-Rutile TiO2, and Nano-Anatase TiO2 under a very high temperature above 1000 Degrees.Then the proprietary magnetic particles are bound into the material fibers by a process which uses Tesla electric current to stabilize the bonding. Inside the yarns of different materials, the Titanium particles remain permanently bonded, and will never wash out. The material is Odorless.

Through the innovative use of crowdfunding on Kickstarter, James Prattas is exposing his much needed product. We would love to share more content and pictures with you! There are so many benefits to wearing T102 you must see for yourself what the T102 is all about on Kickstarter, here.

This sounds so cool!

Cliqmaps will serve as the first social platform to influence as much presence offline as it does online. They want to fuel events that establish a sense of social bond worldwide to capture content from their Cliqmaps app. Cliqmaps will bring people together to share experiences, and show off their unique style.

Cliqmap’s focus is to implement an intelligent but simple design into their app, allowing for a lot of possibilities, and also making it user friendly. By combining the use of google maps with an advanced but simple to use video editing software, the Cliqmaps app will allow groups to showcase their skills like never before. Cliqmaps truly shows devotion to its community by giving every single dollar that they raise over what their asking, and using it for a reserved community event that acknowledges the Veterans and transient youth of northern San Diego.

This month Cliqmaps started raising funds through the innovative use of crowdfunding. Their crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo will help them achieve their goal of spreading the word about their new application. Money raised to help this small startup company will go towards establishing the infrastructure, marketing, and development of the Cliqmap phone app. Click here to check out the Cliqmap campaign page.

Cliqmaps sounds like it could be used for some very Orwellian purposes, but it also seems like it could have many good uses as well.

"Guitarist/singer Michael Barrow is a magnetic frontman, commanding the room’s attention as he slays through solos, vaults off drum risers and amplifiers, and literally leaps, thrashes and careens around the stage. Bassist Bryan Schanck matches him in energy and force, the two pushing against each other in instrumental duels or writhing on the stage floor as they solo while keysman Ariel Cortes builds the wall-of-sound atmospherics and Danny Piechocki batters his kit."- Creative Loafing



Zulu Wave's African-inspired experimental sound defies strict genre categorization, instead a thrilling and energetic mish-mash of influences. Their debut albumJAGORILLAis available today. According to the band, a jagorilla is a fantasy mix between a jaguar and a gorilla. That fantastical mix defines the feeling behind the album: aggressive, mysterious, hard to describe.


Frontman Michael Barrow came to the US from South Africa after spending much of his youth in Zimbabwe. After having some success with his previous band, he wanted to continue to build on that in America with all of the new opportunities that were available. Using Craigslist, along with a little bit of trial and error, the first few variations of Zulu Wave were born. Even back then, it was hard for people to describe what the band was doing, and the band continued to experiment with their sound. The music is a mix of Michael’s African backgrounds and love of noise and experimental music, along with the rest of the group's more traditional musical experiences.


After some time, the band settled into their current lineup (Michael Barrow on vocals/guitar, Danny Piechocki on drums, Brian Schanck bass, and Ariel Cortes on keys) late in 2013 and immediately started work onJAGORILLA. For the band, JAGORILLA is a personal experience, being the culmination of years of work. Zulu Wave's story is one of constant evolution, developing an aggressive new sound that doesn’t easily fit into the usual genres, and that will continue to change in the future.


Zulu Wave'sJAGORILLAis available today. Check it out now.

Straight-up rockin with great melody changes.

This movie was a pack of lies without even a happy ending. The scene in Greenwich Village in 1961 wasn't as it is portrayed in this film. People helped each other out and didn't look down on each other for the style of folk they played. "Getting somewhere" wasn't the most important thing on people's agendas, but I guess these Hollywood types can't envision such a mindset. Also, the man whom this film is based on was not beaten to death by the husband of a female singer. On the contrary, he was active until his death in 2002 and lived into his sixties.

This Sunday, October  19th from 2 pm until 5....
At  The  Black Dog, 227 West Front St. in  Stirling.
The ‘Amazing Jam’! Even more amazing music... 
This Sunday afternoon  at The Black Dog in  Stirling. We’ll be playing music there for about 3 hours. Welcomed by both staff and the patrons in the lounge and  restaurant, our music is appreciated. 
Once a month on Sunday afternoons. This Sunday afternoon  (October 19th). Time is from 2 pm until 5.
The  format is a ‘song circle’ with the lead changing from person to person among the  group. Everyone has the option to offer a tune when their turn comes around, or  pass to their neighbour if they’d rather. Depending on the music, the mood,  choice of instruments, etc. some will choose  to support whoever is leading a song, others may prefer sit out and listen.   DSCF1663
We invite you to come out and join us, making music with old friends;  for sure, there’ll be some new faces too.
“Bring your instruments, your  voices and your music. It’s  all unplugged  and it’s all good! Guitar, bass,  harmonica, banjo,  mandolin, ukulele,  fiddle, accordion,  flute, celtic harp – the list goes  on.
“There may be only 4 or 5 of us or maybe a whole room full of  musicians. A place for ‘first-timers’ and experienced  players alike. A  good bunch of people playing all kinds of music together.  People in their teens all the way through  proto-geezers. Maybe even an DSCF1647sincipient-geriat or two....
“The  blues does not rule. Any  acoustic music from punk to  polka!”
(Baritone sax and tuba set up in the parking  lot....)
Hope to  see you Sunday afternoon in Stirling.
