    It was back during 1973 -74 period that Isao Tomita and Mike Oldfield (Tubular Bells) that would signaled (to me) the coming age of electronic (and digital) music possibilities.

    Dick Hyman...yeah, that was really his name...he was lesser known perhaps but his music was unique and progressive to say the least. He had one big 'underground' hit sometime in the time frame...

    He started doing electronica in the early 60's....

    What a place ...

    Portland's Peculiarium - Short Documentary

    Pacific NorthWEIRD

    The Freakybuttrue Peculiarium in NW Portland, OR is a gallery of all things "peculiar" - celebrating UFOs, alien autopsies, Bigfoot, ghosts, urban legends, the macabre, horror movies, DB Cooper, Chupacabra, and much much more! We spoke with owner Mike Wellins about what makes this place so weird...

    Thinking

    Came upon this Clif High video rant below today ...

    But let me first say ...

    Unfortunately many do not understand that the Eceti ranch is a private property ...
    And guest cannot visit without a requested e-mail invite ... Noting even during paid
    events including this week's Eceti annual 4th July conference ...

    Saying that, I will comment that my old friend James Gilliland's desire to keep peace
    and harmony at his ranch during these events is totally supported from someone
    like myself who has lived and work there during an extended period of time in the past.

    Still i can appreciate and understand Clif's disappointment and dis-pleasure with this
    news (apparently) denying his request to visit (for the first time) there during this
    weeks conference . Though i do find it odd and interesting (since Clif only lives a short
    3 hours drive away) why the great need and desire to go now?

    Though it's no secret that Clif has publicly criticized James Gilliland and his ranch
    on social media in the past, Clif also is having an ongoing online beef with James 'friend'
    Jordan Sather, while also having disputes with Corey Goode's (a conference speaker this year)
    claims of encounters with cosmic other worldly beings - So should there really be any
    real surprise to Clif's being prohibited (by management) in his attending this weeks
    events at the ranch?

    Oddly though I am with you Clif on all this - I am sadly disappointed for you as well
    in this development. I have not always agreed with James - politics and sometimes
    even his taste judgement in personal matters - So i sympathize (with you) and wish
    you and James will come to terms and (hopefully in the future) can and will make peace.

    Having personally heard the testimonies of upwards of a thousand people (while living
    there) I can honestly say - no one has ever told me it wasn't worth the time and trip ...
    And with you only living a short ride away, I'm hoping it all will amend and follows
    through in you having your own personal Eceti experience - much sooner than later.

    PS - So wonderful to hear you health is on the mend !


    eceti bans me

    clif high



    ECETI banned be from attending their PUBLIC gathering on July 4th 2019. This is my statement about that ban and my response to it.

    Clif does not tolerate the f*&^ery. And so he's making an official filing. His rights have been violated. This is both hilarious and serious. I'm definitely interested to see how this pans out.

    James response ...

    The Latest from ECETI and James Gilliland
    ECETI.ORG


    Cliff High and his followers

    Due to ongoing public slander of James Gilliland, ECETI, and harassment of some of our speakers along with the open admission of how Cliff prides himself on being a provocateur, trouble maker, in addition to his constant threats inviting people to sue ECETI on the basis of slanderous assumptions, and lets not mention threats using legal codes having nothing to do with ECETI a private ranch upon which a private event is happening by invitation only we have chosen to not allow Cliff to attend the ECETI conference. He and some of his associates and followers are a security risk. Some have already crashed the gate and entered the property illegally and were immediately escorted off the property. I am sure these tresspasses would make Cliff very happy along with the doxing directly due to his acting like a victim in a matter he started and continues to perpetuate, a matter upon which we have addressed factually and professionally. His sense of entitlement, arrogance, agression and narcism have us baffled.

    We have to ask the question after his slanderous remarks and harassment would you invite him to your ranch or home? Why would we expect him to behave any differently at the ranch. His agenda in coming to the ranch is obvious we are merely setting boundaries choosing not to participate or subject others to his transgressions.

    His constant slander and harassment have been well documented, they have no foundation in truth or merit, again we are worried about his mental stability posing a threat to the peace and tranquility of the Sanctuary along with guests and harassment of our speakers.

    This will be dealt with legally in the very near future using real codes and violations. He and his followers attempts to force their way on the property through threats and other means will be unsuccessful. There is a high level of security and any trespassers and disrupters will be escorted off the property immediately.

    We have to ask ourselves are we creating heaven on Earth or are we pushing our own unhealed agendas. Quiet enjoyment of the land, freedom of speech, the right to gather and practice our spiritual beliefs as long as no harm comes to others are Constitutional and Divine Rights. We would suggest Cliff and his followers honor these rights. We are not and have not been the trespassers in this situation. We have never met Cliff, he has never been to ECETI nor has he ever attended any of the 33 years of healing sessions, ongoing workshops and classes at ECETI as tens of thousands grateful people. So upon what does he form his be lie fs and assumptions and what is motivating him? It is not the first time unconscious people, victims and seekers of fame and notoriety have tried to gain it at the expense of ECETI nor do we expect it to be the last. We would like to remind Cliff rather than boasting of being enlightened and a master all enlightened beings operate under Universal Law. Universal Peace, Brother/Sisterly Love, Individual Freedom and Prosperity for All. We might want to add service to others and impeccable integrity. His actions have fallen far short. We strongly suggest It would be wise for him to direct his energies into taking care of his own health and mental wellbeing. Again, we go back to three kinds of business. Your business, Gods business and other people’s business. Other people’s business is God’s business. He might want to talk with the tens of thousands of people who have had incredible experiences at ECETI rather than continue on his negative driven agenda.

    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    You said it, Elen.

    Thanks for sharing that, Gio. I don't know about the history between Clif and ECETI but if he's been harassing them over the years, he shouldn't be surprised.

    I like this part:

    This will be dealt with legally in the very near future using real codes and violations.

    Love

    Last time this occurred was back in 1926 !

    This past weekend locally ...

    ICYMI: A planned Fall outdoor wedding at Mt. Spokane quickly turned into a winter wonderland Saturday, forcing some last-minute changes to move indoors, but a quick outdoor shoot provided some breathtaking photos that are going viral! Congrats again Sean & Brittany!
