The Sylvad Physiognomy

What Eastern Woodland Indians Looked Like in 1638 

The appearance of this French soldier depicted in the news story linked below is identical, in terms of skin tone and facial features, to the Indians in New England, Virginia and Canada illustrated and described between 1585 and 1711 by European explorers and missionaries. This was so well-known to 19th Century scholars that the term Sylvad was coined to describe people living on the once heavily forested shores of Northern Europe and North America, suggesting that people living in such similar habitats naturally looked similar.

There are various theories for this similarity of appearance between Europeans and Amerindians, supported by archaeological and DNA evidence, spanning from the Ice Age to the Iron Age and even into the late Middle Ages. However, In White Indians and Yellow Negroes, the investigation is limited to evidence of interracial slavery, rape, marriage and adoption between Europeans and Aboriginal North Americans beginning in 1500.

I plan on using the blogspot to build this book, as Lynn has the ability to extract images from links which I do not on the main site.

Final Words

Parting thoughts from Big Ron -- Look for Let the World Fend for Itself, to be published in November.

Basically, in Baltimore, it’s all about dealing with the blacks. There are a lot of different kinds of people in Baltimore that the liberal media do not even credit with existing, like the Indians, who are right on the front line.

Masculine Digression

When I was growing up you would do stupid shit like get into fistfights to get a girl’s attention. Now, the way things have gotten, you just have to be masculine. Just not cowering down and bite your nails and you can attract a woman, because men are so far gone now that they aren’t men.

The women are disappointed and the men are listening to this bullshit on social media and the news and Hollywood. Women want to fuck a man. You got these feminist chicks with a beat-down man and what do they do?

They go cheat on them with a real man. It’s just not sustainable.


When you got a caper, you usually have a dummy. You don’t pull your car in the parking lot. You get a dummy, fill is head full of shit, give him a gun and if he makes it back you take half the money. Those three guys that robbed the 7-11, the idiot who gets the $26 and gets shot and the two other dumbasses that run off, it’s not their caper, it’s somebody else’s caper, the guy with the car that’s waitin’ on a back street.

The smart has always dominated the stupid. That’s just the way it is. You got the Big Brain and you have the dummies that actually take the risk to pull the caper off.

There’s always a big brain in every caper.

Shit comes together, not organized like some kind of military regimentation, but by who is the alpha male, who is smarter. Even if its two men, you’ve got a smart guy and a dumber fucking guy. That’s how that shit comes together.


I didn’t mind enforcing company policy and regulations, but I didn’t rat the men out or screw them over for the higher ups. I’m not duckin’ people over for the bottom line. It didn’t matter to me if they had a family or bills or were single and wanted to drink and smoke crack, but dealt with them how they were as an individual, how they dealt, how they were. I got along well with the higher ups, the big brains, the architects, but I’ wouldn’t fuck over the men for them.

[Lateral loyalty]

Everyone is an individual. There is no absolute.

I had one kid on the job a few years ago who was a good worker but just wanted to drink and chase pussy. They wanted me to fire him and I wouldn’t. He was a smart fucker, mechanically inclined. He was a smart fucker and liked pussy. I wasn’t going to cut his throat for that. So he learned what he could and moved on. More power to him. I could understand their concerns that he wasn’t moving up in their hierarchy, but he wasn’t harming them either, just making his way.

Us working guys need to look out for each other.


Without a doubt, dealing with the dindus is number one. That’s what gets the hipsters in trouble. They’re just preyed upon. But the working class whites that are still here are familiar with it. A lot of them are just windus themselves.

A good thing to say to law enforcement if they stop you and ask you if you’ve ever been arrested just say to them, “I’m not legally obligated to answer that, officer, I would like to speak to an attorney.”

It’s never good to talk to law enforcement. Not that I’m an anti-law enforcement guy. But you have to look out for yourself. They never ask you questions to help you. Whatever happens, happens. If they are going to plant evidence on you, they do. If they are going to beat the shit out of you, they will. It never works out good to challenge an officer, never works out good to challenge a person in a position of authority. Sometimes you have to take it upside the head and okay-doke them a little bit. Cops believe that most people are lying and since most people are stupid they [the cops] put things in your head and start their narrative. It’s never good to talk to the cops. The limbo right before you're arrested gets a lot of people in trouble. Tell them, “Arrest me and take me to booking.” Don’t say anything. Ask for your lawyer.

Part of what I’m saying is based on what a good friend of mine—who was a detective—told me and the other part is based on experience. Unsolved crimes are never good for police districts. Better to have someone who is charged and not convicted, that’s still a “solved” crime according to their perspective.


The city—and America more and more—is all run according to who is desperate enough to deal with the blacks, so the Jews sold to the Koreans and the Koreans are all selling to the Pakis. It’s always going to be in flux, because no one who is not desperate will do business with the blacks. It’s really that simple, “Who is willing to do business with people who will definitely steal from you and might kill you.”

Conscripted in the Drug War

John Paul Barber is a reader and a listener who was arrested 20 years ago for selling cocaine and served time in federal prison.  He lives in Appalachia and has seen the casualties of the opiates crisis first hand. 

Hey Lynn,

You mentioned in your email you were surprised that I'd been in federal prison. I'm not exactly sure what you meant but I assume you meant you were surprised my crime was serious enough to warrant federal attention [yes, this is what I meant]. Well, most people wouldn't think it warranted federal attention. I was only 19 years old when I got busted so I hadn't been alive long enough to be a kingpin or anything. At first my charges were only state charges, but after about six months the local authorities turned my case over to the Feds by putting me on a conspiracy indictment with six other guys. I only knew one of them. The reason they do this is because federal sentencing guidelines are way more harsh than state guidelines. It looks better in the local newspaper and on the cops' resumes if the crooks they bust get lengthy prison sentences. If my charges had stayed at the state level, I would've most likely gotten probation as a first-time offender. Instead I received 75 months in prison plus 5 years of probation upon release. I also had a $40,000 drug tax that I owed. I never paid it. I just had bad credit for ten years until it came off my credit report. The group they put me on the conspiracy case with was the first time my local officials turned a drug case over to the Feds. Apparently it worked well for them because they did it to about a hundred more drug dealers after that.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to make any kind of excuses or portray that I was treated unfairly by the authorities. I knew I was breaking the law and there were consequences for that. At the time though, I didn't realize the consequences could be so severe. I played with fire and got burnt and I take full responsibility for it. I also learned a very valuable lesson... easy money is rarely ever worth it. The best throw of the dice is to throw them away.

Like I said before, the drug war issue was what first got me interested in politics. With all that time on my hands I had plenty of opportunity to think about things. I became curious as to how a 19 year old kid who'd never been in trouble before could get six years in prison for selling somebody something they wanted. A friend of mine in prison loaned me a book called Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do (The Absurdity Of Consensual Crimes In Our Free Country) by Peter McWilliams. Peter was a fag who died of AIDS and lymphoma. He got in trouble for growing over 4,000 pot plants that he distributed to co-ops for medical marijuana patients.

Anyway, I read that book and quickly became an advocate for drug legalization and also took several other libertarian political positions. As I've gotten older my views have changed quite a bit. With regard to drug legalization I had an a-ha moment about eight or ten years ago when it dawned on me what the results would be. Most all of the violence associated with illegal drugs in America is perpetrated by blacks and Hispanics. So what would these people do if dope started being sold in stores like cigarettes and alcohol? Do you think they'd all go get jobs and become fine upstanding citizens? Hell no, they'd start robbing, extorting, and kidnapping for a living if they couldn't make money selling dope. At least in the drug business most of the violence is limited to other participants in the drug game. Them killing each other is a eugenics program as far as I'm concerned. Regular folks would be the main ones targeted for robbery, extortion, and kidnapping in a world of legalized drugs.

Advocates for drug legalization usually bring up the fact that drugs used to be legal in America many years ago and we didn't have anywhere near the problems with it that we do today. This is true. You could go to a pharmacy and buy cocaine and morphine if you wanted it. But it was also when we were a 90% White, Christian country. I live in majority White Appalachia where we have some of the highest drug addiction rates per capita in the country. Yet we have hardly any violent crime. Sure we have plenty of breaking and enterings and petty theft, but people here aren't killing each other in the streets over dope. There's not a trailer park full of junkies in my whole county that I wouldn't feel safe walking through by myself or with you or anyone else. That said, I'm not even going to entertain the thought of drug legalization in a White ethnostate. Anybody who thinks a White ethnostate is ever going to happen in America needs to be drug tested themselves.

Yes, it's true that Big Pharma, Politicians, and Law Enforcement have big-time interests in keeping the system the way it is. But at the end of the day, nobody's forcing drug addicts to put that poison in their bodies. They do it by their own hand. It's a two-way street and where there's a demand, a supply will always be met. I blame a decay in overall moral character as the biggest cause of America's drug problem. I'm not all that religious but I'll be the first to admit most drug addicts need Jesus more than they need rehab.

So what kind of solutions do I propose? Well, as you can guess, definitely not legalization. However, the drug war itself is a total joke and a waste of time. I think drugs should remain technically illegal and kept as an underground activity because at least the dangerous element of it will deter some people from getting involved in drugs. At the same time, I also think law enforcement should take a hands off approach toward drug dealing and drug buying. Kinda like how we treat sodomy laws today. It's technically illegal in a lot of states to be a faggot but nobody gets arrested for it. Selling drugs is a great jobs program for the black and Hispanic community and keeps them from committing more real crimes against regular folks who aren't involved in the drug trade. And let's face it, what race of people are more genetically suited to deal with pathetic junkies than black drug dealers? A junkie needs to deal with some swarthy, aggressive thug who'd just as soon shoot you in the face as tell you the time of day. Maybe it'll discourage some of these addicts from further pursuing such a degenerate lifestyle.

Cops should focus their time and resources toward going after criminals (including drug addicts) who are committing real crimes against people and property. And these criminals should be severely punished for it. I'm totally ok with public floggings and bringing back chain gangs. Regular prison is just another massive welfare program and it isn't a deterrent for a lot of folks, especially blacks. It's like a big family reunion for most of them because half of their cousins are in there too. The only thing they're missing out on in prison is women and that's not a big deal for a lot of blacks. They'll turn "prison gay" like it's nothing. A hole and a heartbeat is the only requirement that's needed, a heartbeat being optional in some cases.

The vast majority of our illegal drugs (pot, meth, cocaine, and heroin) come in through the Mexican border so the greatest deterrent for drug trafficking would be THE FUCKING WALL!!! Put gun turrets on The Wall, bring some of our soldiers home from protecting the borders of other countries, and give them orders to shoot to kill anyone trying to cross or smuggle anything across that border. That would put a huge dent in the supply of drugs into this country.

Our other big problem is prescription painkillers. That's going to have to be a political solution that will take a strong hand and a lot of will power that most likely doesn't exist. Big Pharma is one hell of a powerful lobby. I don't believe in some grand conspiracy to drug the population to make us all mindless automatons. Greed is what drives these people. More profits, higher stock prices, more funding for law enforcement, etc. Add that to the centuries-old desire of humans to alter their consciousness and you have this giant feedback loop that fuels our appetite for drugs. I really don't know what a solution would be for that or if there even is a solution. We live in a culture of instant gratification where there's a pill for anything that ails you. A major cultural shift in moral values is probably the only thing that can cure our addiction to prescription pills.

Lynn, I hope this helps you understand my thoughts on America's drug problem.

PS: Tell James thanks for passing along Narco-Night Train. I'm about 50 pages into it and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Great stories. James has mastered the art of description. Other than smelling bodily fluids I feel like I'm riding Baltimore public transportation when I'm reading these tales.

Thank you, Mr. Barber, I agree with much that you have stated here.  I appreciate your perspective as someone who has been there, in more ways than one.

Rubbing Out Palefaces by James LaFond

Are you the same color as the fools depicted acting like goofballs on network TV commercials? Does every violent criminal and serial killer depicted in movies and on TV hold an uncomfortable resemblance to your pale person? Were you born to the world as a monster of the evil pigmentation that falls between beige and pink? Has the world at large grown sick of your privilege, of your jaunts aboard your private yacht, of your mansion, of your Rolls Royce? Well, as you eye that cardboard box in the alley with a little more familiarity, you might want to read what you are in for, when you become a paleface pedestrian in world that hates you. The author has lived on foot and made his way alone by night, in Baltimore, Maryland, as one of the most hated men of the world’s most reviled race, and here is a slice of his story of survival. With contributions from Lili Hun, Lucas McKane, Baruch, Ishmael, Nero the Pict and Jeremy Bentham Also includes the mini-books Hero Song of the Thugs and How the Blacks Saved English.

Daddy’s Girl

Ideas for Parenting a Daughter in Today’s Sick World

Lynn, I saw a question bearing on this from God’s Own Prototype on the comments to Episode 11 of the Crackpot Podcast.

Traditionally brothers, uncles, fathers and grandfathers are expected to take on the role of protecting a young woman outside of the home, eventually transferring that responsibility to an approved escort and eventually mate.

However, since our society has been specifically engineered to place the individual male and female as members of coerced groups [school classes, employee pools] and alternately as vulnerable individuals [making one’s way to work or school, for instance], with the home space increasingly occupied by lone individuals, a father must try to extend his traditional duty of educating his son in the means of aggression to his daughter, despite her usually physical and psychological unsuitability for surviving or prevailing in violent circumstances.

What Your Daughter Needs

  1. Fires arms expertise,
  2. Automobile handling and maintenance,
  3. Judo,
  4. Boxing,
  5. Blade expertise,
  6. Tactical awareness.
The most important are 2-6 outside the home and 1-5 inside the home. 3-4 are for dealing with mildly abusive dates and mates and other females. In the world we are entering, a woman needs to possess special operations soldier level tactical awareness and to be able to ride and shoot.

Sympathy for the Devil

My friend John Paul Barber commented on the Spooky Halloween episode of the Crackpot Podcast:

Skulker Jones was inspired by Sympathy For The Devil. Sympathy For The Devil was inspired by Mikhail Bulgakov's Master And Margarita. Jagger was a fan.

Thanks for the tip, Mr. Barber, I had never heard of Master and Margarita, have you read the book or seen the series?

Crackpot Podcast Episode 2, Now with a Proper RSS Feed

Hello friends,

I have been learning basic web skills that were highly relevant around the turn of the millenium!

I believe I have set up an RSS feed through FeedBurner that will allow you to subscribe to the podcast through iTunes or your chosen blog or podcast aggregator.  This means that you can download the mp3 when you have access to sweet WiFi, and then listen at your leisure without sucking precious data or worrying about poor connectivity.  If you don't know what these words mean, don't worry!  I will continue posting all new episodes on YouTube at my channel.

If you are extremely tech savvy, you will already know that you are supposed to use that orange button with curved white lines radiating from a dot in the lower left corner.  If you are on a desktop or laptop, that button will be over on the right hand sidebar.  If you are on a mobile device, the button will be all the way at the bottom, below the previews of all the recent posts.  That button will take you to our FeedBurner page, and I will let you handle it from there.  Please let me know in the comments if you are able to successfully add the feed or if you have any trouble.

To celebrate this development, I will be posting the mp3s of our earlier episodes to catch you up, and all new episodes will be posted this way as well.

I have some other plans to improve this blog, and I welcome your feedback and suggestions, please leave them in the comments.

Poetry Wars: Kipling's The Stranger

For our latest installment in the Poetry Wars, The Checkered Demon's piece at James' main site, Wherefore Art Thou, My Brothers?, brought to my mind another of Rudyard Kipling's works, The Stranger.  Kipling expresses many of the tenets espoused in our little corner of the internet, the preference for one's own people, without any claim of supiority, the power of blood memory, and our responsibility to our posterity.

The Stranger

The Stranger within my gate,
 He may be true or kind, 
But he does not talk my talk--
 I cannot feel his mind. 
I see the face and the eyes and the mouth,
 But not the soul behind. 

The men of my own stock,
 They may do ill or well, 
But they tell the lies I am wanted to,
 They are used to the lies I tell; 
And we do not need interpreters
 When we go to buy or sell. 

The Stranger within my gates,
 He may be evil or good, 
But I cannot tell what powers control--
 What reasons sway his mood; 
Nor when the Gods of his far-off land
 Shall repossess his blood. 

The men of my own stock,
 Bitter bad they may be, 
But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
 And see the things I see; 
And whatever I think of them and their likes
 They think of the likes of me. 

This was my father's belief
 And this is also mine: 
Let the corn be all one sheaf--
 And the grapes be all one vine,
Ere our children's teeth are set on edge 
 By bitter bread and wine.

So Her Master May Have Her Again by James LaFond

A History of Runaway White Slaves in Plantation America: Part Two

Between 1617 and the 1850s, as many as a million white women were enslaved in Plantation America: as house servants, sex slaves, field hands, bar maids, unwilling wives and laundresses. If any of these women could be made to take the slightest tan they might be passed off as mixed and therefore black, which would consign them to a full lifetime of bondage. Within this book are the stories—ranging from fragmentary to epic—of Caucasian and mixed-race women, brave women who made their break for freedom in a man’s world.

Jester in a Strange Land

A Mojo Vision from an Ole Piney Woods Coon

Recently returned to my mountain cottage from the Summer Palace (Lord Ishmael's place ), I began cautiously peering out into the Mojo.  The Prince had seemed worn, but recovering: a man gradually cutting the ties from his domain for awhile, notching the throttle back in stages.  He was still edgy for the sudden disaster that could occur due to his absence.

Lord Ismael lolled in the shade favoring past wounds, surrounded by beautiful women and grandchildren.  I offered him a potion given to me by Tennessee spirits blenders, then confronted the Prince and passed to him the True Sword: a berserker's sword, as my instructions had read.

We yodeled bullshit into the night, praying in our ways to the void, all knowing our lands had fallen beneath the sway of evil necromancers who at this very moment were terrorizing women with banana skins.  Lord Ishmael and I fell into undoubtedly holy swoons soon, but the Prince traveled onward, even unto the dawn!

Stolen as a babe and spirited away from his potential domain to a foreign one, where those of his clan were unknown, he had slowly come to sense his difference, and handled it poorly and then by instinct perfectly: returning to his source.  He found his lands blasted battlefields, well into the grasp of the necromancers and falling farther daily.  He began his crusade.

I could go on and on, but, what happens in Deer camp stays in Deer camp...so to speak.

As for the Mojo?  Japan will receive an atomic bomb kit with an inletted stock, ready to go with limited effort.  India will receive goodies too.  The United States of Amusements will stand back and watch.

'Then in the Night It Was Gone' Mescaline Franklin, Post Script, Wyman Park Dell

Crackpot Correspondence Files

I wanted to hear Mescaline Franklin's thoughts about his and James LaFond's Wyman Park Dell video project. Below are some questions I put to him and his responses:

What made you return to the park this past August, after visiting it last year?
James wanted to do videos and we both thought it would be good to revisit the Lee Jackson Monument, he wrote an article on it for Counter Currents when we first visited in early 2016. We lucked out a week before Charlottesville. James and I kept discussing when they would finally take it down and then in the night it was gone.

Was your visit on a weekday or weekend? Did you see anyone else there who appeared to be there to study the monument?
I actually don't recall, I think it might be the weekend. The three times we have been there, there was no one checking out any of the monuments, not a lot of foot traffic despite the school and museum. Almost like people are afraid of something...

Have you been back to the park since the Lee Jackson monument was removed?
Not yet. We plan to go for a before and after.

Are there any other Civil War monuments that you have spent significant time with?
I have seen many in my trip. The Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument and Confederate Women's Monument in Baltimore were also taken down. Both monuments were quite beautiful with female figures comforting a dying male, suspending my misogyny for a moment. The base of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument was debased with red paint and graffiti. I assume the Women's monument base is also spray painted.

There is an awesome one in [redacted] but I wouldn't bring attention to it, there is also a monument for the [redacted group]. I would not reprint these last two for fear of bringing unwanted attention.

Do you have plans to visit and examine any others?
I have been looking at many monuments lately, including Federal/Union and Great War ones. They will not be safe for long either. This is about erasing white people, anyone with a brain knows this. And that white liberals lead the way makes it all the more frustrating.

I will find what I can and see if James will tag along. Not even Shakespeare's various monuments are safe.

60% or more of the country, including more non-whites than the media admits is AGAINST these actions and it does not matter one iota.

Getting James to Gettysburg would be an adventure, that place is a monument metropolis in the middle of farm country. We shall see, there is still plenty in Baltimore to see, like the old Mexican-American War monument, imagine if that thing was in your home state of California?


Thanks for doing this, Mescaline. This series of videos is one of my favorites of all of James' work and it wouldn't be possible without you. I look forward to helping out with any future video projects.

Praise for the Lady and the Knave

The Crackpot Counterpoint

I've been buying your books at a clip of about 2 per week. If I ever get the chance to meet you, I might ask for a couple of autographs.

I can't say enough good things about the Crackpot Podcast.  Mrs. Lockhart is the perfect counterpoint. That show wouldn't work as good as it does if it were 2 dudes talkin', I don't think.

"Why are these psychopaths always sending me emails?" I imagine you screaming. "Don't they know I'm trying to WRITE?!?"

-Tony Rooster, 10/6/17

Thank you very much for the kind words, Mr. Rooster, I am so glad you enjoy the podcast!

Drink Deep of Night

Song of the Secret Gardener

What if our nightmares, myths, devils and demons had a singular source, a source so advanced as to be as a scientist to our bacteria, so alien as to be unable to communicate with us, without becoming us? A possible answer to these disturbing questions may be found in James LaFond’s Drink Deep of Night, a tale told in that place where wonder and horror meet in the mind.

An Undead Facet of Uncle Sam’s Scam

A friend of mine was recently selected as the CEO of a company selling power-lifting and body-building accessories, by a millionaire, who came across his $10 million by working as an engineer, rebuilding Iraqi infrastructure which had been destroyed by American arms, with all of his millions supplied by the American taxpayer.  He confided in my friend that although he never skimped on material or procedure and pocketed unused funds, that most “rebuilders” did.

Based on his interaction with his single share-holder, my friend, the budding CEO of a meathead accessory empire, soon came to the conclusion that there was zero probability that this “German asshole, who hates America but won’t leave” abstained from unethical billing in his lucrative career as a “rebuilder.”

The man is down to only a few million dollars now, is in a panic that he might actually have to work one day—like his poor son the Mercedes mechanic, who is an object of shame in his eyes—and is feverishly attempting to market “green” building materials to home improvement giants such as Home Depot.

Let's wish him ill luck.

I always thought that our nation’s adventuring into overseas nations would bring terrorism to our shores, but I never considered that it would bring such vulturous grafters from third-party nations.

The most telling lesson to take from this story is how our now global currency system and its initial growth paradigm will turn even the lottery winners among us into quivering parasites, forever dreading the prospect of their host organism failing to bleed to feed their endless need.

How to do a Podcast the Crackpot Way

James' footnote on my announcement of Episode 10 finally prompted me to publish this piece:

1. Can you believe this 25-year-old kid from the Slacker State caught up with me? It's time to jump from the roof—but I want to hear what she had to say with this idiot... For I do not remember...

As I noted in my comment there, this is so wrong!  Read on to find out why...

PS, I am working on getting an RSS feed set up, but I need James to get on the phone for a little tech support.  Please let me know any preferences or suggestions you have for that.

Lynn Lockhart's Podcasting Instructions

This little podcasting adventure started as a way to help James prepare for his interview with Kevin Michael Grace. Since then, I have read with interest Kevin Steel's production notes. Grace and Steel are real journalists with a lot of experience, and what is really rare, conservative outlooks. Their podcasts are wide ranging, include interesting subjects and have really high production values. Steel is responsible for the technical aspects and he has more equipment and far more know-how than I. I also have what he doesn't have, which is a couple of kids chattering in the background. This is all to say that the Crackpot Podcast is a decidedly amateur affair. Notwithstanding that, I thought I would put together a quick summary of my current work flow for those who are interested and for my future reference.  If you have any suggestions for improvement, by all means leave them in the comments!


Currently recording 2-way Skype calls with MP3 Recorder in stereo, one channel per speaker.  Would like to try a three way call, but would probably need each participant to make a recording in Audacity for that.

Listen & edit:

  1. Open Audacity and import the MP3 Recorder file.
  2. Split the stereo track into individual channels.
  3. Clean up my channel, since my silences usually have kids talking, or coffee slurping.
  4. Clean up James' channel slightly, only removing major noises and use Noise Reduction for AC if necessary.
  5. Remove from both channels any interruptions, major coughing fits, etc.
  6. Shorten some silences, since I am often dumbstruck, apparently.
  7. Add an intro track and a closing track if needed, usually taped separately.
  8. Put the two stereo channels back together into a single stereo track.
  9. Arrange the tracks: intro at top, next is the stereo track, closing last.  Use Align>>End to end.  This places the tracks in order for mixing.
  10. Split the stereo track to two mono tracks.
  11. Mix and render to a new track.
  12. Close other tracks.
  13. Save project.
  14. Export audio as MP3.
  15. Listen to the audio and write show notes in a BlogSpot draft.

Make a video:

  1. Use Windows Live Movie Maker, this was free in my Windows 10 upgrade (also free).
  2. Import pictures for slide show.
  3. Arrange the pictures.
  4. Import the audio MP3 file.
  5. Adjust the viewing time of each image (select all and do all at once) to ensure the video is long enough to accommodate all audio.
  6. Add captions to crackpot image at beginning of video.
  7. Save project.
  8. Export as a WMV file.  This takes time for my old and non-video optimized laptop (ie it is not a gaming rig).


  1. Open my YouTube channel in web browser.
  2. Click the upload button.  This takes time, significantly more time for HD videos, such as those shot by Mescaline Franklin of Wyman Park Dell.
  3. Navigate to the WMV file and begin upload.
  4. Adjust titles, credits, etc.  
  5. Hit the button and publish!
  6. Come over here to the BlogSpot and finalize the show notes, add the video link and hit that button!
  7. Email the Boss so he can post on main site.
