The Genesis and Meaning of the Atomsound Studio

Atomsound™ Studio soundproofing technique from JohnLSayers.com
Looking back and forward at the Genesis of the Atomsound™ Studio

Pictured above is a sound treatment for my garage studio utilizing rubber pads on the floor joists (to disolve street vibrations) way back around the year 2000. I had thoroughly researched John L. Sayers' amazing forum on sound studio design and opted for a simplistic but (quite) effective and artistic solution in my one car garage.

Although we've long since moved on from this studio (left it for work at GOD.TV and IHOPKC.org international satellite television broadcasting gig in 2007), the knowledge (and immense fun!) had building and using this studio is not dormant. Although our current unenhanced dedicated bedroom has no soundproofing at all and is completely exposed to our street's constant sirens and boombox rumblings a mere 15 feet from the window, we are active and are now planning a new soundproofed ergonomically-friendly arrangement.

What "sound-design" - whether environmentally shaped or directly influenced by tools - are you doing in your life?

Are you aware of the influences that distort your perception of reality? Are rumbling, squealing "noises" distracting you from hearing the pure sound of life around you? Have you set up "bass-traps" and "soundproof tile" to help you discern better the "atomsound" - the resonant frequency of God - in the people and events around you?

Are you actively grasping the controls of your "soundboard" and "digital audio workstation" to adjust the incoming sounds? To better optimize the frequency of love, peace, mercy and patience in your mind and heart - the "recording" media you will take with you into eternity?

Help atomsound resound in you by taking inventory of your surroundings and attitude toward those surroundings. Record life responsibly!

KC Kauffman Foundation's Entrepreneurial Fever Sweeps Planet

KC Kauffman Foundation's Entrepreneurial Fever Sweeps Planet

by Tom Chaffer, founder of Seed Revival and Atomsound LLC, husband, papa and author of plain sense writings.

This morning I took particular pleasure, as I almost always do, in reading the Wistia.com weekly email. I was tickled by their comment,
"We thought that making videos would expose us for who we really were: four scared people sitting above a framing store trying to figure out how to get traction and not give away the fact that we had no idea what we were doing."
That SO expresses my feelings about the entrepreneurial journey.

Shawn Daugherty of KansasCityShock.com and Kyle Rogers of Knoda.co (no m!) present at 1MillionCups Jan. 8, 2014
What I'm finding out at 50, as one of the oldest app-preneurial-startup-types I know… is that the fever that typifies the spirit of an innovator is insatiable.

I've imbibed in my first Global Entrepreneurship Week, the chart-topping initiative of Kansas City's Kauffman Foundation, and I have to say my eyes are now wide open to the opportunity and wellspring of invention and enterprise available to me and to everyone reading in 2014.

Having successfully imbibed in my first Global Entrepreneurship Week (gew.co), the chart-topping initiative sparked into being by Kansas City's Kauffman Foundation, I have to say… my eyes are now wide open to the opportunity and wellspring of invention and enterprise available to me and to everyone reading in 2014. And it all springs forth from right here in my home town, the heart of America - Kansas City - now one of the world's fastest-rising startup cities.

As Jonathan Ortmans, President of Global Entrepreneurship Week in Washington DC says in this introductory video, it helps you "learn about whether or not - at some point in your life, you may have the interest and the skill to be able to join a startup."


More info:  gew.co/about - unleashingideas.org

Ortmans continues,
"Now we think entrepreneurs might be the force for change in their countries for things beyond just economic change - that they can actually make the world a better place… The possibility of human endeavor for the benefit of all."
A total of 138 countries hosted  Global Entrepreneurship Week events in November of 2013, with videos, tweets and posts lighting up the hashtags - #gew - and search engines, startup-fever ran high throughout the week - especially here at the ideological "ground zero," my own Kansas City.

The highlight for me was at an amazing "card-swap" event at Global Prairie where Shelly Kramer - v3im.com, twitter.com/shellykramer - who spoke to the ever critical "fever-space" of digital marketing and how innovators can create customers and build buzz with these powerful social platforms. Her story of self-discovery was raw and inspiring, encouraging us to take the bold chances on authentic and yet targeted engagement on Twitter and Facebook and beyond.

I've experienced with my own startup Twitter account, twitter.com/seedrevival, that it is, by far, my hottest spot for my own startup dream - especially for interacting with the thought-leaders in our space.

The Seed Revival team, like Wistia's wistful beginnings, also consists of four scared innovators hanging out in a (virtual) room above a "framing" shop where we individually work hard to pay the bills with our online and telecommuting family businesses.

The ancient art of seed collecting and the human right to keep these seeds without cost has been all but stolen from the citizens of Earth by massive corporate conglomerates who would "patent" ancient genetics as if it were a morally acceptable thing to do. So these "four scared people" have caught the entrepreneurial fever from our sense of urgency to answer the looming planet-wide seed crisis. The "GMOs" (genetically modified organisms - seeds with poison in them, basically) are nothing more than tiny, poisonous destroyers of these two pillars seed harvesting and seed keeping.

By the same grace that packs abundance into every untainted seed, we will do something about it.

Add to the GMO nastiness mono-cropping, heavy tillage and a generally broken agricultural system which was spawned by massive corporate greed and you can see why the Earth's nutrients have stripped from the soil and massive deforestation is washing away what's left.

With this scenario in mind, t's easy to see why activists are "cropping" up all over the place!

We are calling people across the Americas and around the world to fully realize the ancient wisdom of free and unaltered seeds for farmers and gardeners alike. The nutrition and health of all the world's children are truly at stake and we are driven by the fact. Seed Revival's mobile hub proposes to move quickly on this growing niche of urban, suburban and rural gardeners and farmers who have both small and large stakes in the "seed-time and harvest" fight for the future.

The plants that feed the world have been in the gene pool from the beginning of time and have a masterful genetic complexity that needs no fixing at all!

Whether its because of the very real threat of non-tested "GMO's" or the looming economy crisis, we are positioning ourselves to answer the questions, make the connections and sell the goods that, truly, "make the world go 'round."

Watch out for another set of "four scared people." We recognize the stewardship of the entrepreneurship spirit and are running with it.

Lil' Guy Fixin' Stuff

#TheologyThursday"If God brings you to it, He will bring your through it."
Seems to be the theme this morning! 
As we prayed for a dear friend just now, we were thinking about little David's attitude: "WHAT? There's a dude TAUNTING ISRAEL? How DARE he!? I'ma go FIX this." 
Bam. That is all.

Response to silentmiaow's In My Language video

Please watch the AM Baggs aka SilentMiaow video, "In My Language." It's a brilliant unveiling! I'd like to quote its author: "It is meant as a strong statement on the existence and value of many different kinds of thinking and interaction in a world where how close you can appear to one of them determines whether you are seen as a real person or an adult or an intelligent person. And in a world in which those (interactions/thinking patterns) determine whether you have any rights there are people being tortured, people dying because they are considered non-persons because their kinds of thought is so unusual as to not be considered thought at all!" "Only when the many shapes of personhood are recognized will justice and human rights be possible." "Acted and sung by AM Baggs & assorted objects" Please rate and respond! Distributed by Tubemogul.

Spirit. Some people hear it. Some people fear it.

This is one of my favorite videos from WAY back (in internet years) - April of 2007! What's that like 14 human years? 21? Lol! Anyhoo.. it's good enough to re-blog, fo sho.

Check it out. It's Holy Spirit filled video podcasting with the best - me (by the grace of Yahweh), Steve Schultz and his AWESOME prophetic video podcast that was so on the cutting edge back in the day (and needs some help to get back on its feet), Mark Chironna and, my new best mentor friend in Yeshua, Lance Wallnau! Plus some sweet Scriptures.

Just want to shout out to anyone who hasn't yet given into the Beautiful Maker, Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah (from the Hebrews, for the planet), now is a REALLY good time to dive into His depths.. the depths of His masterful DESIGN of the universe.. and of YOU.. the depths of His love.. that ties it all together.. the depths of His profound wisdom. What Yeshua offers of Himself is NOT religion.. unless your religion is to take care of the week of your planet, as if it were you yourself being downtrodden or forgotten. All that other so-called religion is worthless and wasteful self-worship and/or idol-worship! (Yes, I'm talkin' to you hyper-religious Christians as well!)

Yeshua.. He's not church-i-fied. He's ALIVE and He's good. And He longs to be face to face with YOU and with the poor in spirit (and, for that matter, with those steeped in meaningless sunday traditions.. but they gotta get outside the boxes to find Him!).

A great guideline for people studying the Bible - "All word and no Spirit, ya dry up. All Spirit and no Word, ya blow up. Filled with the Spirit and singing the Word, you fill up and overflow with justice-flavored Love!"

Before the Haiti Earthquake - An OHMHaiti.org Promo Video

http://ohmhaiti.org This video was finished July 5th, 2009. Since then things have changed radically. Haiti, per capita, has suffered a disaster far worse than any ever before in the Western Hemisphere with the earthquake that struck January 12, 2010 at 4:53 p.m. Consider visiting http://ohmhaiti.org and lending your support as they are uniquely positioned with indigenous Haitian pastors to reach Haiti from within. I'm bummin' for not thinking to post this (and other work I did with James Adams, founder of OHMI) earlier. He and his team have worked so hard in Leogane, Haiti, and other hardest-hit areas!

Battle Hymn a Beck-IHOPU-Obama-Jesus Mashup

December 30, 2009

Atomsound Video Podcast on the blog. Glenn Beck asks WHY was Derrion Albert beat to death for not joining a gang. Is it capitalism and corporations that have caused gang-related crime? Is it because of not enough government? Maybe Or is it because God is no longer trusted in America... 10 commandments in public, Christimas hymns that praise Jesus are too contraversial. It's not OK to make public school children praise Barack Obama in public schools as a savior while forbidding Christian expressions of faith. Christian songs, prayers, writings and readings of Hebrew scripture established our country and should remain. Rehearsing (?) for singing the praise of dictators is strictly forbidden in the United States of America!

Glenn reminds us that the Battle Hymn of the Republic holds deep value for Americans still. It was nearly our National Anthem and there is a growing number today who are choosing, due to it's rich heritage and Godly prophecy, to adopt it as such.

America, wake up. Embrace the Maker and grow in His grace.

Creation groans for Sons and Daughters..

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky displays what his hands have made. Psalms 19:1 Let no one expect anything of certainty from astronomy, lest if anyone take as true that which has been constructed for another use, he go awaybigger fool than when he came to it. If perchance there should be foolish speakers who, together with those ignorant of all mathematics, will take it upon themselves to decide concerning these things, and because of some place in the Scriptures wickedly distorted to their purpose, should dare to assail this my work, they are of no importance to me, to such an extent do I despise their judgment as rash. - Nicolaus Copernicus (Polish astronomer 1473 1543) Distributed by Tubemogul.

Steve and I were talking about depending upon the Creator and Sustainer of matter and breath and he came up with this brilliant take on life in Yahweh! It's like trusting the designer/operator and construction genius of a great roller coaster.. My original song, Untamed from Zion, wraps this one up with some amazing roller coaster footy! Lyrics follow: Jesus, when You're majesty has finally hit the ground and You're reigning untamed from Zion I will fully sing of Your love I will fully sing of Your love When the fateful justice Of Your terrible, swift sword extends over all of the earth I will freely dance in the streets I will freely dance in the streets There's a better day comin During Your kingdom reign we'll say, "King Jesus lives in Zion Putting an end to pain...

AtomsoundTV asks Will You Be A Voice?

TheCall.com - big meetings in San Diego, Kenya, Washington DC, Nashville and beyond - big meetings that represent an explosion of underground night and day burning for the love and justice of Yahweh to invade earth in the person of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah! Be a voice for Jesus. Be counted among those who will speak and petition the courts, proclaim in the forums... both heavenly and earthly... Then they that feared Yahweh spoke often one to another: and Yahweh hearkened, and heard it , and a book of remembrance was written before Him for them that feared Yahweh, and that thought upon His name. (Malachi 3:16) It's time. You were destined for this moment. You are a changemaker. Yahweh's eternal Son, Beloved Yeshua was born in a manger in Bethlehem and, by the power and insight of His kingly rule of the Universe, YOU ARE A CHOSEN ONE. When He raised His torn, royal head upon the cross and shouted, "IT IS FINISHED," YOU were one of the ones He was warring for... and YOU were set free to be a voice in this increasingly callous age! You who have seen His love... please... speak truth to power and to defend the defenseless with His truth. Be a voice. See www.theCall.com and www.IHOP.org/free and www.mmasfy.com (for filmmakers) www.atomsound.tv/vision and especially watch www.atomsoundfilms.com for more information regarding your greatness in Messiah Yeshua.
