The California Register *Special Edition* drops….

a shot of the hard copy. The California Register. January 2015. Buster the cadaver-sniffing dog is featured; so is police corruption/laziness and/or incompetence.

….and this writer is responsible for a great deal of the content.


If you did not receive a copy of the edition in your mail or PO Box today…I published a PDF of the prototype below so you can enjoy my words as much as I enjoyed writing them. A full copy of the paper in finalized “ATP” as-is form should be avail. to me soon.
This is not EXACTLY what was printed, but now that it’s out there, here is the editorial as it was initially laid out … the Approved to Print copy is a hair different but my words and are essentially equivalent.
Por Vous: B7 to B8 prototype*
Viva la voce y la pluma libre! The subversive graphic…defacing a Cal Poly “concrete welcome slab” electronically by this writer and published a few months back on this site as dark-satire… (MADE in MSPAINT!) is published as-is in the paper…I admire the chutzpah shown by the publisher of this seriously cool newspaper. His name is David Smallwood and is known as “Pismo Dave” in the Five Cities area.

Por Democracy: viva la marketa libre’! Lee la advert abajo. Gracias!

You could say this writer’s been pretty busy….you could say this writer sits on his ass all day. Whatever the case may be, the priority has been write a decent editorial for The California Register and setup/configure the hardware and software this li’l creative project known as Tapper7.com is going to need moving into the future.
I recorded episode zero of Season 1 of the Tapper7 Podcast. It’s not suitable for primetime or late-night, but I thought it was fun to make and once I figure out the specifics of creating a [1400px X 1400px] graphic and configuring the RSS feed I’m just gonna drop the m-fer.
So….if you are one of my valued readers in San Luis Obispo County….check your mailbox. You might see an editorial written by some idiot named “Chris Welke.” **UPDATE** Breaking news in the Kristen Smart Case has forced the editorial staff to place the holiday edition ON-HOLD ’till January.
“Expect us.” In your mailbox next year. We are NOT anonymous.
I had to scrap the PHP for this site and we’re…sort of starting from scratch. we ARE doing a full-on redesign.
For now it’s simply choosing a theme — I made a few customization’s, the site WORKS. you can read/access the information presented here…especially if you are a new visitor and end up here as a result of my upcoming piece in The Register and want to know a li’l more about the subversive, OCD, schizoid pseudo-intellectual known as Chris Welke.
Please make use of the comment section on any article if you want to throw me under the bus, compliment me or threaten to kill me…..I love comments. I publish them unedited.
Not counting spam, which has not gotten past our security ONCE since September. It makes creating content a trillion times easier but also throws off-would-be commenters. You can always hit me up direct w/o all the CAPTCHAS and math problems by sending an EMAIL (I know…) to:

chris@tapper7.com. If you would like your note to appear as a comment, you MUST wade through my system … as SNL called it back-in-the-day, this is a “ruining it for everybody” situation and I apologize on behalf of India and Red-state spam-bot builders who r—- the comment section on this site.
Follow the links regarding My Dearly Departed Better Half if you are interested in contributing to my/her work….after all…Dominique deserves all the credit. I learned to report at Poly…Dominique taught me how to WRITE. This time of year
….I really really really REALLY MISS HER BAD.
If you want to support this Web site…scope out the sponsors you see peppered around here. It’s easy to do, you don’t have to buy anything from them….just…check ’em out, you might even find a great holiday gift. Afterall, the algorithm matched ME and MY CONTENT with YOU and your known preferences. Google knows more about you than YOU do…so why not let them help you shop. Think the algorithm knows it’s neary Xmas and that you still have gifts to buy? Is that the dumbest f—ing question ever?
Forgive the awful aesthetics seen here while I put the finishing touches on more pressing WIPs.
Lots of music reviews, movie madness, tech reviews, cringe humor and the prose you hate to love is coming back on a regular basis with a vengeance so don’t trip-out on that dear reader.
“We” (I keep acting like there’s a team behind this juvenile artistic endeavor) will also be presenting a year-end tech review…we’ll pay tribute to all the devices that were damaged, lost, destroyed or taken prisoner (clipped) in the line of duty to bring Tapper-creative content straight to your dome all year long.

…a personal thanks to the people BESIDES ME who really DO help make it happen and the bloggers who qualified for my upcoming SHORTLIST: Tapper7.com’s “Blogs that don’t suck 2014.”

I’ve reviewed almost 4500 blogs this year for comparison, education and because I get REALLY BORED and LONELY sometimes….regardless, I’ve located about five…..FIVE!!! Count ’em FIVE blogs that are informative, creative, original, have a nice design, are NOT a scam and NOT completely full of shit.
We will honor and highlight those blogs because, well this is MY blog and I’m the shot-caller HERE if nowhere else….I also want to spread “the good-good” since all year I mostly just put “the all-bad” on f—ing BLAST.”
We MAY also put businesses, Web sites, people and places on BLAST for f-ing me, someone else or society over…just to stir up some s—.
….haven’t decided what to call THAT list yet.**UPDATE – Negative articles ON HOLD till holidays close, be ready though, this list would make my ol’ neighbor Dick Nixon VERY PROUD.” (Except for the not-keeping-it-a-secret-part). F— it.
No matter…thx for YOUR patronage most of all. If you enjoyed this site in 2014 – 2015’s going to keep you informed, entertained and maybe even laughing, SLIGHTLY MORE THAN 2014 DID!

There WILL be lots of music and movie-related comment and commentary.
The Podcast WILL launch or I’ll die trying.
Drum Corps will be visited and revisited and beat to death as usual.
If law enforcement fucks with me, you or anyone else, I WILL REPORT IT. Just like 2014…OCSD ON BLAST! (Nice time to shoot a black guy at HOLLYWOOD AND HIGHLAND BTW ….fucking LAPD man…..)…let’s get all mixed-up in the NY/Boston/Chicago/St.Louis race-baiting-racist-above-the-law-COP-fucking BULLSHIT cuz in LA….things go GREAT when the black population [overtly shit on constantly] loses their collective tempers, doesn’t it? hmmmm?
Rodney King, Watts, … Reginald Denny’s brick-to-the-kisser at Florence & Normandy? Yeah…let’s DO THAT AGAIN.<–sarcasm
OCSD, LAPD, SLOPD, OCDA, SLODA….you suck. [MOST OF YOU]: You’re awful. Incompetent, Incapable, Corrupt, Racist, Trigger-Happy, sneaky, full of shit and I sincerely hope you get AIDs in 2015 if you haven’t been diagnosed yet.
Oh yeah…that’s what I wanted to say…especially with the ultimate demise of The OnA Show and the fervor with which all humorists miss one of our own…one of our best. He’s black too. <= and would’ve loved that joke.
Patrice O’Neal…RIP Big Dawg. In HIS HONOR-THERE WILL BE AIDS JOKES.
And to the Japanese high command that bombed the hell out of Pearl Harbor 73 years ago…how’d that work out for ya? Get a nice face-full of Oak Ridge Laboratories and The United States Marine Corps? Ya DID didn’t ya?

Semper Fi.

Cal Poly San Luis Obispo News Archive Part 2: Brian Gillis

This assertion appears in many subsequent posts. The scope of what you are about to read is massive and touches on every single aspect of what is wrong with the closed-system comprising the university, the city, the chamber of commerce, law enforcement, the media….Cal Poly generates a massive income stream for this system and w/in it…it is above the law. As a Senior++, I failed to provide the amount of research and coverage that Brian Gillis and his tragic death deserved.
A photo of Brian Gillis

I will NOT fail him or his memory again. What follows is the message. Patricia Gillis, Brian’s mother, sent to me yesterday. I actively avoided the city and the university for over a decade. Only in the last few days have I even checked in with online print media, one of which I was a staff writer and both of which I deplore. In my request for more information regarding the death, this is what she wrote to me using my contact form:

“Mr. Welke, I just came across your site today, 9-21-14. Thank you for posting the information regarding my son’s death at the hand of evil Sigma Chi brothers and Alpha Phi sorority sisters as well. This is a hard time for us right now as Brian’s birthday is Oct. 11th and he would be turning 32 this year. Also, Brian was on a USAir flight from Providence via Pittsburgh to San Diego on 9-11-2001. He called us about 2 hours after the WTC tragedy happened to let us know his plane was next for takeoff when Pittsburgh closed their airport. Being raised Irish Catholic and attending Catholic schools through high school, I often ask God why he did not take him then, instead of letting him die the way he did. We proved in our civil suit without a doubt who sold the GHB to the frat, David Seminsky, and who had mixed, Matt Heintz, and had it stored in his refrigerator well in advance of Brian consuming it. SLODA and SLOPD promised us they would make an arrest when the civil suit ended, which is the only reason we settled, but then they just continued to drag out the manslaughter statute. But, these punks can still be arrested for 2nd degree murder because the GHB and Gatorade was mixed ahead of time and they knew exactly what Brian was ingesting. We also proved that Brian did not know there was GHB in the Gatorade he drank, per Nick Potter. There is so much corruption involving Brian’s death. I hope you continue to keep Brian’s memory alive as well as all the other Cal Poly students who have died under suspicious circumstances and were brushed under the rug. As far as I am concerned, Cal Poly is a death trap more than most colleges. I have worked in education my entire career and am well versed with the ongoings of corruptions at the college level with frats and sororities. Also, the “red hand prints” that were painted over at Cal Poly is another major issue. I believe Dan Blackburn, along with a lawyer found out that Cal Poly, SLO at the time of Brian’s death had the highest rape crime rate of all the UC and State Universities in the state of California. Sidenote: Sigma Chi and Alpha Phi are brother/sister chapters on most college campuses in the U.S.”

Let’s pull the bullet points out—for your consideration:

  • Gillis wants to know why God did not take her son on 9/11
  • The dealer’s name is David Seminsky
  • the man who mixed the faderade’s name is Matt Heinz
  • The District Attorney LIED to Brian Gillis’ family-instead let charges cycle through a complex PC array*
  • There is eyewitness testimony in open court from Nick Potter who stated that Brian Gillis didn’t know the drink was laced
  • Potter’s words are almost indisputable-Perjury is a PC 118 Class D FELONY (4yrs-CDC)
  • Gillis said her son’s death involves “so much corrpution”
  • She said that fraternities and sororities are corrupt— based on her professional experience
  • Cal Poly is characterized as “a death trap”
  • The name of the fraternity is Sigma Chi that has a “sister” sorority Alpha Phi
  • In my 1st draft of this featured post, I specifically remember a report on “Rape per unit capita” and that San Luis Obispo was #1 in California. I can’t remember if Dan Blackburn stopped by the Clear Channel Studio at 51 Zaca Ln. or if he called or emailed us, but at the time it was difficult to generate reports like that, he was one of a select few resposible journalists in town … in another post I mentioned that I had no contact information . If you are out there Dan…my name is Chris Welke, I was a staff writer at the “Mistake” Daily around 2001-2002 but did most of my reporting at 93.1, in 2004 I produced the morning news at KVEC and was a fill-in guest and/or call screener for “The Dave Congalton Show.”
  • Re: Patricia Gillis’ statement:
    1. I can’t read all the way through it without getting choked up.
    2. I’m conflicted about whether or when/how her son may have passed on earlier and whether or not that is “better” but Brian Gillis died in an awful, run-down, decrepit and very dangerous place. I can verify this. Gillis died in the worst part of the “white-ghetto,” (Stenner Glen) with my awful studio located on the same block. The act itself occurred along California Street – “Fraternity Row” aka “Rape-Central.”
    3. She ID’d the man distributing date-rape drugs and the name of the man who probably paid for it and made the infamous mixture that was the immediate Cause of Death in official reports. That’s what I want – NAMES. We finally know “who” this was IMPOSSIBLE to figure out when the story broke, my few sources close to the frats knew it was Sigma Chi but they all went on “a camping trip” the same day Gillis’ body was found. hmmmm…..
    4. From the information I have, were I the DA, I would charge both under PC 192(b). Manslaughter is “the unlawful killing of a human being without
    malice.”-PC
    (b) Involuntary--“in the commission of an unlawful act, not amounting to felony; or in the commission of a lawful act which might produce death, in an unlawful manner, or without due caution and circumspection. This subdivision shall not apply to acts committed in the driving of a vehicle.” -(PC)
  • This is a felony charge (4yrs-CDC) I’d select this as the most likely to yield a guilty verdict. We are now aware that a settlement was reached, indicating both men likely have criminal defense retained…as of this draft, the SLO District Attorney says the are stuck in the ID# and Classification phase needed to open a felony case and issue an arrest warrant.
    5. Gillis asserts that both men can be charged under PC 188. “Such malice may be express or implied. It is express when there is manifested a deliberate intention unlawfully to take away the life of a fellow creature. It is implied, when no considerable provocation appears, or when the circumstances attending the killing show an abandoned and malignant heart…. (etc)” -PC
  • Key description: “an abandoned and malignant heart” it is awfully poetic for the California penal code…to me it describes what happened. Because it is a Class A Felony I would NOT file charges under this because:
  • 1. Guilty verdict probability reduced— heavier burden of proof on the state. The sentancing guidelines being “15 with an L”
    2. If convicted they would be eligible for parole after 7 years…. THIS IS A BIG IF STATEMENT….it is better to be certain both are convicted on felony counts, where they will enter the CDC/Parole system which will ruin their livesSo where do we go from here? Ill be writing more stories and editing that massive amount of content I just generated to increase its value…The San Luis Obipso District Attorney is funded by the taxpayers of San Luis Obipso County, I am not one of them but I was from 1998-2004, I can almost guarantee there is no way to get ahold of and ADA’s but there is no reason NOT to pester them with emails and phone calls. My question is: “I was informed by the family of Brian Gillis that you are processing charges under Penal Code 192 for Matt Heinz and David Seminsky? Yes….why haven’t you filed charges yet…Brian Gillis died 10 years ago….yea….I understand that you can’t comment regarding an ongoing investigation can we please speak off the record this is a matter of some importance…..etc.” In abstract: are other cases involving suspicious death, agg-assault, 1st degree burglary, attempted murder, attempted murder with GBI, attempted murder with Gang Enhancements, (for US Attorney: kidnapping, tax-evasion) and  sex crime also stuck in a some theoretical Penal Code ID/Class Loop? I call shenanigans on that. I’m not an attorney, but I see enough evidence already to issue warrants for the arrest of Heinz and Seminsky on suspicion of manslaughter, file 1 felony count of 192(b) against both and if any physical evidence of the drug exists an additional concurrent count of Felony sales (GHB) for Seminsky and felony possesion (GHB) for Heinz (HSC Section 11377)
