Monthly Air Raid Siren Absent, Oakland, CA 8/3/2011

I was going to record the monthly Air Raid Siren for artistic purposes:  I wanted the air raid siren that freaks me out monthly.  There I was with microphones and all: stood up by a symbol for the nuclear annihilation that has haunted us since the Cold War.  

I could hear them off in the distance, very faint.  Must have gone off somewhere in Oakland, but nowhere near me, at any point today.

I did, however, find a treasure trove of recordings of the San Francisco tests...

I previously noted test anomalies here

Be seeing you.


Short on law enforcement, due to budgetary restraints necessitated by the recent (but thankfully over) Slight Economic Downturn? Have the new advance-approval regulations given adequate warning that a political protest is planned - only to find local enforcement just does not have the personnel to cover the event?  No problem! At last, a solution to the taxpayer burden of security and the looming possibility of civil unrest. No need, thanks to Unicor, to risk minimizing security in your Home Town -- and the additional costs are minimal!  

An ever accelerating number of Americans, now from all walks of life, have seen their lives ruined by incarceration, and this population is only expected to grow exponentially. Even now, lucky participants are daydreaming of a better life, in anticipation of the excellent opportunity this employment will provide.  They will receive rigorous hands-on training in the complete skillset required to keep the peace in these troubled times, and will know how to use a taser as well as a gun! Have Unicor police your next event!
