My cousin Daniel A. Bellware on Bellwares.

...our common ancestor [is] Louis Hébert, the first farmer, pharmacist and settler in Canada and his link to the holiday...

After Louis Hébert died, his widow, Marie Rollet married Guillaume Hubou in 1629. On the advice of Samuel de Champlain, she remained in Quebec with her children and new husband during Quebec’s occupation by the English. They were among the twenty French colonists to stay. After the French regained control of Quebec in 1632, she took in Native American (First Nations) girls being taught by the Jesuits. One of them was an Algonquin girl, baptized as Marie Olivier Sylvestre. It was around this time that Champlain told a group of First Nations leaders “Our sons will marry your daughters and we will become one people.” It came to pass in November 1644 with the first recorded marriage in the church of a First Nations woman, Marie Olivier Sylvestre and a French settler, Martin Prevost. They were the great-great-great-grandparents of Sophie Giroux, the mother of Francois Xavier Belouin and grandmother of John Henry and Louis Napoleon Bellware.

[We are related to Louis Hébert directly via another ancestor.]

The best number to get a hold of NJ Unemployment is 732-761-2021

I'm just going to keep posting that until I don't have to call anymore.

So they told me I should know on December 7th. Whee.

Here are Sebastian Lipszyc's awesome names for pedals: "smooth dinosaur for drive, star horizon for reverb, white dress for eq"

Waxing Poetics is a band out of Norfolk. Mike Mills produced an album of theirs back in the 80's.

Origami Angel's Bandcamp.

EHX Pulsar programmable tremolo.

Aion Effects ODR-1 kit

Our podcast Earthkiller suddenly got a lot of downloads in May. No idea why.

Triode Pedals -- they look really nice. 

My genetic makeup is not very exciting.

I'd like to make a kind of Pultec-in-a-pedal sort of thing. 

Klon Klon Klone

 Andertons picked the Wampler Tumnus over an original Klon Centaur. 


Although it's pretty clear your mileage may vary.

JHS shoots out the Klon vs a Boss OD-200.
The Boss does much more than aquit itself.
