Recycling Plus Interest
Recycling Plus Interest
My son comes to me with his MP3 player in hand and says “Dad, its dead.” I promptly take the battery out, turn to the junk drawer and grab yet another one from the package of fresh, new batteries. “There you go buddy” I say, “Now don’t leave it on okay? Turn it off when you are done listening to it.” I grab the so-called “dead battery” and toss it in the garbage and return to other fatherly duties. What’s wrong? Sounds like a normal scenario. It was to me anyway. My wife notices the toss. “What are you doing?” she asks. I guess I’m supposed to recycle those. Who knew? I’ve always thrown them in the garbage. Recycling to me was making sure I crush my soda can and toss it into a plastic bag in the garage. When that becomes full, I gather my four bags and make a trip down to the recycling semi truck to get a few dollars. I usually spend it by the time I get back home. Recycling has been turned into a complicated process. It’s pushing the limits of the consumer’s willingness to “save the planet.” In order to “save the planet” and “go green” a consumer and proper citizen must learn extensive recycling rules that eventually costs them valuable time and money. I do not understand why there must be a recycling effort in place for just about every type of manufactured item. Recycling is not a single simple process. For example, my city only collects plastics that have a number one or a two on them. What do I do with plastics three, four, five and six? I think I have to toss them in the trash. Glass must be from only food and beverage containers and well cleaned. Cardboard cannot be from soda or cereal boxes. Break those boxes down and put them next to the paper bundled in that brown paper bag. I keep a gallon zip lock bag in my kitchen for old batteries now. Battery recycling drop off is offered in my city only twice a year. Do I feel good about recycling now? I better. Wisconsin law requires me to recycle cell phones, DVD players, computers and many other electronic devices. While I understand these devices contain hazardous materials, collection of these items seldom occurs and it costs me a significant amount of money to drop them off. A television set will cost me thirty dollars to dispose of. Even though most states require these items to be recycled only about 12% actually are (Grossman, 2006). United States recyclers like Basel Action Network (BAN) estimate that 50% or more of the United States’ used computers, cell phones, and televisions sent to recyclers are shipped overseas for recycling. But much of this obsolete equipment ends up as toxic waste, burned or allowed to degrade in landfills in third world countries (Grossman, 2006). Why recycle these materials when we just ship them overseas to sit in other countries’ landfills? In a world of “stuff” there’s got to be a better solution. My garage is now jammed with items that are outdated or broken, and I will have to spend more money to throw them away “correctly.” Is all this effort needed? Do we or do we not have the room to simply just throw this stuff away? “A. Clark Wiseman of Spokane’s Gonzaga University figures that, at the current rate, Americans could put all of the trash generated over the next 1,000 years into a landfill 100 yards high and 35 miles square (Bandow, 1997).” Currently, there is not a problem relating to gross space requirements. Most landfills are small and designed for about ten years of operation and that is why environmentalists dwell on the horrors of antiquated landfills. The relevant consideration is new landfill capacity, rather than the number (Wiseman, 1997). “If landfills were truly in short supply, then the cost of dumping waste would quickly rise. I would then see the financial benefit to reducing my waste volume (Fedako, 2005).” Have you ever compared the amount of trash of a “home prepared meal” versus a “fast food” one? You’ll find that fast food meals generate less trash per person then do home-cooked meals due to packaging (Bandow, 1997). A study from the Reason Foundation, “Packaging, Recycling, and Solid Waste,” concludes that recycling, though sometimes beneficial, all too often wastes resources. For instance, producing paperboard burger containers yields more air and water pollution and consumes more energy than manufacturing the polystyrene clamshells that most fast food restaurants used to use. “Polystyrene items are cheap because they require so little energy and material to manufacture-without reading a chemist's analysis, you could deduce from the cup's low price that it's an efficient use of natural resources (Tierney, 1996).” While fast food changes are complying to offer consumers a “green” meal, they do so simply because of the society mindset that green is better (Bandow, 1997). What John Tierney wrote in the New York Times nearly 10 years ago is still true: "Recycling may be the most wasteful activity in modern America." Is “g

Arvie Bartolome: My Shoegazing Experience
MY SHOEGAZING EXPERIENCE is a concept album that plays with the shoegazing genre and it also presents the “lighter and playful side” of Arvie Bartolome. Its concept is so absurd and ridiculous that it has become one of the most original ideas this year so far. The concept: consists of an imaginary recording session wherein he had at his disposal, more than a dozen stomp boxes (guitar effects), a couple of drum machines, stacks of huge amplifiers all miked and hooked into a multi-track recorder – and subsequently gets all the equipment destroyed and toasted due to extreme levels and voltage overdrive. In real life, he was only equipped with a small old Macintosh computer, a few music software demos (notably Guitar Rig 2 demo) and his trusty Fender Stratocaster and an insane amount of creativity and concentration to be able to record thru the whole thing in two 15-minute takes – without readily hearing the result of what he was recording! Amazingly, he emulates all the “destruction” he has done with his imaginary equipment – the unwanted noises, the crackling of electricity, the muddy recorded sounds due to popping wires, to the sound of burning amps; and is skillfully able to make the recording melodically and aurally interesting. “Shoegazing" is a genre of alternative rock in UK and coined by the Brit music press because the musicians in these bands maintained a motionless performing style, where they stood on stage and stared at the floor while playing their instruments, hence the idea that they were gazing at their shoes. Therefore, My Shoegazing Experience is “pseudo-shoegazing” because he never even sets an eye on his feet during the album’s creative process.All the eleven tracks in this album chronologically tell the tale of Arvie’s “Shoegazing Experience”, and it also includes two bonus tracks that are soon to be “sleeper hits”. Produced by TENGAL. Released June 2007.
