Clif for Indiana

I don’t know how to start this, so here it goes: I am running for Indiana House of Representatives, District 100 encompassing parts of Downtown all the way east to 465.

I have been a resident of Indianapolis since 1992 when I moved here to continue my education at Indiana University Purdue University, where I work today bettering education in Indiana.

I have several educational degrees, however, the one I am most proud of comes from Martin University, a Primarily Black College, with a Masters of Community Psychology. I have spent the last 20+ years in Indianapolis trying to facilitate and repair relationships across lines. Most recently, I have become a member of the Citizens Alliance for Public Safety in educating and enabling citizens within our community.

So for now, that is it. I will be creating a new website. This one was really a way for me to keep track of things I found interesting and share with very few friends. It will be the same address, but if you are a friend and want to know my weird interests, my background in Psychology, Machine Intelligence (‘AI’), Community Justice, Education…and whatever weird things I love…don’t worry, this blog will still exist!

I love you all…I hope to hear from you in the community soon.

Ever think, “Maybe My Grave Site Needs A Hidden Camera?”

Vice found this company selling blackops tools to police or military or “selected clients” meaning anyone with enough money but won’t blow their cover.

Unfortunately, FOIA requests do not care about your company hawking cheap Chinesium repackaged into expensive covers in which you can rip off the gov’t by selling the products at 1000x what you could at AliExpress.

Old Skool: Hifi Audio on the C64

I cut my teeth on the Commodore 64. I had access to TIs and Apple IIes and all that, but the C64 was what pushed me. And it was what put me into the music industry at a young age writing shitty sequencers and MIDI toys, building my first interface from an RS232 port adapter.

A friend of mine and I successfully used the paddle input as a pseudoaudio encoder that only had the worst and most distorted 2 second samples. So when I think about the fact that someone has figured out how to get 90 seconds of audio at CD quality from a C64, I’m actually impressed! Check it out!

BBC Sound Effects Free

In another life, I ran, co-founded, and nearly went insane for Sonikmatter. We did a lot of different things, but the commonality of the people I worked with was that we were all musicians and sound designers. Not always in that order. These days, I have access to all the sounds I’ll ever need and sites like this ensure that others do too. All sounds free for personal, educational, or research purposes. Commercial purposes may cost extra.
