Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007

Revisiting an old medium

I have been enjoying listening to a local radio station here in L.A. area for the past few weeks. The morning show has an interesting disc jockey (Joe Escalante, Esq.) who was in the 80’s punk band “The Vandals”. He is one of the few, from the scene in Orange County / Los Angeles punk scene, that did not get stuck in the muck that most bands, and band members back then fell into. Actually some of my favorite old bands from then are more popular now then they were back then. A few of the real great ones broke up as members went to college and put those careers ahead of the band.

Joe is one of those who went to college, and he became a Lawyer. Good choice for someone in the music business. But he has expanded his talents to many areas (wiki link here) (Joe’s Escalante web site here). He has some great legal advice and insights for band members, writers, artists, producers, and documentary/independent films. On Fridays Joe hosts “the Barely Legal Radio Show” they take calls from people in bands etc. that have legal questions, on indie 103.1 (webcast here). Some of the other DJ’s include Henry Rolands (from the band “Black Flag”) and Steve Jones. ( I don’t care much for those two musically)

Today I was listening to them talk about a Joe Strummer benefit concert and a limited edition poster. Got me thinking of all the artwork I use to do for bands and their flyers, logos, and much more. I miss that style of artwork. I got sorta anti-hippie, anti-political, and at times some in your face glimpses of history. The later was an attempt (that worked well) to attract attention and discussion. So I decided today to try and get back into doing some of the artwork that I enjoyed so much. My artwork has been very stagnant for the last few years. A couple years ago, I did start some excellent pieces that have multi dimensions (layers). One I like will cost me $500.00 just to create the original. I will post some updates on my progress next month.

Well I have been very busy with work lately and should have some free time soon. So I am very tired and will be signing off for now thanks all.


About Ian Bach

Independent Online Terrorist Hunter I teach people how to hunt down and shut down the Bad guys web sites. I also teach about the various countries and cultures. Like most cases it is a small group of bsd eggs that in this case call themselves Muslims but in actual fact they are more like how KKK call themselves ",True Christisians". But in both cases / groups they preach a perverted and twisted view a religion. In the case of ISIS, all Qaeda, al Nusra, and the rest of the terrorists who claim to be true Muslims most of these groups follow the Wahhabi teachings. They are almost all Sunni and their goal is global domination. Yet they must be very bad at math and history. Since most Muslims prefer a separation of church and state and also mist are against Shari's Law. Esp the twisted and overly exaggerated form of Sharia Law that the Wahhabi and other bad guys use. I have studied terrorism, insurgencies, and the best tried and proven methods that work to fight terrorism. My Blogs have many links and articles that can show you who are the best and most knowledgeable people in the fields or counterinsurgency and counter terrorism. When I find great practitioner's I always listen to them to find out who they learned from and who they respect and admire. Thus I am always learning new stuff from the best and most successful in their fields of knoeledge. I strive to be an open and ethical source of information, I have met many awesome, kind, caring, and loving wonderful people many who I am close friends with now from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran, and many from S.E. Asia which also has a high percent of their populations that are Muslim.We must always strive to be aware people are not any one particular religion via that's what they chose to be, instead most people are a particular religion because that's what their parents and/or county is. I was raised Catholic but because I became Interested in magic ,(illusion - smoke n mirrors) and science which lead me to study many religions, and I would call myself an atheist. Yet sometimes when I lose my keys ZI find myself praying "Hail Marys" and a few "Our Fathers" which most always aides me in finding my keys. My belief is that if I just frantically look around for my krys, good luck it takes me for ever. But by saying these prayers it is like s sort of meditation and my mind becomes more calm, which is why it helps my find my keys.
