Curse of Consciousness —

I wouldn’t recommend the pursuit of consciousness to anyone. I would not have chosen it for myself. I didn’t. It chose me. If it hasn’t called your number yet, don’t worry. It will, eventually. It will draft you from your small life and make impossible demands. You will say, “No”, “It can’t be done”, or […]

Rameses B – Meaning Of Life —

“You will simply become, completely absorbed in soundAnd therefore you will find yourself, living in an eternal nowIn which there is no past, and there is no future,It all becomes one doing… one happening You will simply become, completely absorbed in soundAnd therefore you will find yourself, living in an eternal nowIn which there is […]

Looking at you, likeYou could see what I do Showing you the songsThat made me feel likeIt was all worth somethingAnd I got so lucky… Now I want to spread it out far and wide, toCatch you all on this rideWhat’s yours is also mineIt can all coincideIt can all coincide

ToTD —

That quote in red defines how I feel music should be treated by every true artist at its core — a foundational, instinctual motive to create music not for profit, but for expression. Everything after that is just icing on the cake.

Makes Sense to Me —

This seems to make sense. Not for *all* people, but many I’m sure are too prideful to admit they were conned or taken advantage of. Embarrassing. I want those people know that nobody’s judging them and there’s no reason to feel any shame. Cut your losses; you found him out—leave it at that. We’re all […]

Felon —

I think we all need to take a look at Trump’s track record from 2016-2020. I think we’ve all got a bit of amnesia from what happened, and didn’t happen during that time period, because it seems like we’re all moving forward with the 2024 election like it’s a do-over. Trump had 4 years to […]

Anyone who DECRIES this verdict —

What makes more sense is that anyone who DECRIES this verdict is a danger to you and your family, because they’re not respecting the rule of law, juries made up of people just like you and I, or our legal system on a foundational and constitutional level. I don’t think any Democrat, Independent, or any […]

Trigger —

I think we can all agree that most people aren’t triggered by the _content_ of racist/sexist/transphobic/etc. comments, but solely by the *intent* of them (and the person’s reputation). I’d like to make a video series with puppets, where they all hurl insults at each other based on their appearance or perceived race/sex/etc., mimicking modern human […]

Religion vs. Moral Compass —

I think that some hardcore religious folks view people who don’t believe in their religion as fundamentally bad, unenlightened or flawed. Evil, in some cases. I personally think that non-religious people are just as moral, ethical and kind as everyone else. They simply don’t subscribe to an organized, official group or way of thinking. They […]

Why does it have to be this way?I’ve done everything My soul turns to blackI cannot escape thisI can’t take this anymoreFighting for scraps Selling myself to the ones I hateThe ones that are killing us all “Stand for something”KamakaziKamakaziKamakazi I just want to be freeI want to believeBut with all I give,All I get […]

People Problems —

Dare I say, in the United States? Child porn isn’t a technology problem. It’s a people problem. Mass shootings isn’t a gun control problem. It’s a people problem. “Far right”, Neo-Nazism and MAGA isn’t a politics problem. It’s a people problem. Human beings need to come together, now more than ever. We’ve been divided and […]

Repetition —

You wanna know the secret to success? Repetition. It’s no more complex than that. Music and rhetoric. Art and politics. You wanna steer a people? Repetition. We’re all fucking apes. We think we’re so smart, so evolved… go fuck yourself. We’re animals, feeding off of the umbilical residue of generations before us… In the end, […]

Nothing to Gain —

I know I’ve written about Mudvayne before, and the song “Nothing to Gain” (from L.D. 50) has always stuck out to me with its eccentric time signatures. I was just listening to it again after some time. Parts of the song, including the outro, are in 17/8. Yeah, you read that right. And it fucking […]
