Hello again, and I am sorry I neglected this blog for some time.

Here’s the 411: I am taking classes at Santa Ana College this semester, which is almost done! I am in transferring to California State University, Fullerton this fall. I am probably going to be working or interning this summer, so I won’t be updating this blog anymore. (At least in the foreseeable future.) I would suggest you check out my Twitter feed, @BenBurk1111, and  my Facebook profile and page, Benjamin Tyler Burkhardt and “Ben B.” respectively. I also have a YouTube account, under my Google account “benburkhardt1111@gmail.com.” You may also email me at my previously mentioned Gmail address or my Facebook email address (same, only @facebook.com instead).

Peace be with you,

and have a happy life,

Ben

A Time For Choosing

By Gary P Jackson

When I first learned of this, late Thursday, I was so angered I couldn’t even put it into words. Even now I’m really doing all I can to measure and moderate my tone. One thing about it, now we know why so many were adamantly opposed to auditing the Fed!

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders [Socialist-VT] reports the first ever top-to-bottom audit of The Fed shows $16 TRILLION in secret “emergency” loans to American and foreign banks and other businesses. All sympathetic to the democrat party.

Last year, the gross domestic product of the entire U.S. economy was only $14.5 trillion!

These secret loans started during President George W Bush’s last year in office, December 2007, but it was all orchestrated by the Fed. In fact, many of the people who work for the Fed also have ties to the banks and corporations who got…

The Chronicles of a Skinny Jeans-Wearing Toronto girl

I’ve been blogging for a little over two years now. You would think I would have been a best-selling author and have publishing houses begging for my signature on book deals by now. But alas… it’s been a slow journey. I have no complaints though. While my personal life has seen better days in the past few years, blogging has been like the first sip of morning coffee. Warm and comforting.

Of course, I’d be lying if I said there were no low points of being completely uninspired and unmotivated. But even at those times, I always knew that I had a little niche that was all my own. I had a small following of people who gave me the satisfaction of having clicked on my blog link even if they could have cared less for its content. Every single view that shows up in my blog stats gets a celebratory smile…

If you’re a fan of listening to live music and doing who knows what in a city that makes you choose your own adventures, then there’s a good chance you’re a fan of SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST. After we endured a 46-hour trek from Toronto to Austin via train last Spring, the minute we landed into the home of the Longhorns and the somewhat unauthorized birthplace of independent sound, our hearts sank into our chests, and the neverending roller coaster of new music began. The weekend festival prides itself in main attractions, making SXSW the local town band, but the one you will forever love. Dusting off this year’s eclectic lineup injected with hip hop, garage rock, punk, R&B and electronica, here’s our picks – aside from favs Titus Andronicus, Santigold and Fiona Apple – for artists to tune into.
