My Life’s Been Long Gone

Souls sitting in silence are as useless as an appendix

Being perched above a fire full of sticks

It makes me sick when people suddenly don’t know how to speak

Because they’re so untrusting of another soul that they build walls around them

To me, it makes them weak

I seek a person who can hold an intelligent conversation

With connotations of sensations of creepy pulsations

So strong that they run down my spine

And in time, we find that we knew each other all… Continue

silver fuckn bells people!

So I just went to one of the best places in NOLA, an abandoned paper factory by the river. We cycled with two cat people on our tandem over there and watched the sunset. Good holiday.



I had a pretty successful show in Los Angeles, I sold most of the pieces off, which'll pay for posting at the very least.

I managed to get a couple posters done for some friends.





Looking forward… Continue

Music to my ears....The Slack Republic



As we end the year look back at a lost musical gem the unreleased, till now, Slack Republic album.



"Recorded in the early winter of 2006, these 9 songs are part of the final and incomplete works of The Slack Republic. The best possible effort was made to compile these songs into the closest representation of the album they were written for.



Inspired by the… Continue

site tech problems

using a mac with firefox and tonight safari

problems...

sporadic rejection of posts. Sometimes posts show up, other times the spinning icon slows to a speed reminiscent of dialup. I usually give up after about 2 minutes. Tried sending an email related to this, but the same thing happened.

Sometimes when I go to reply to a post, no text box appears and the icons on the page stretch out.

Is it just me?

My first day going natural at work.

Today is the first day i've wore my hair natural at work. It's early so there aren't many people here yet. But already i'm starting to get looks. Most of which are people just staring at my hair trying to figure it out. Their faces are so funny. Kinda like they're thinking really hard on the toliet. Haha but anywho they don't say anything about it, just stare. I guess they're so use to me with permed staighten hair. I've been off of perms for about 10 months now but i would still flat iron it… Continue

NEVER-NEVER-NEVER GIVE UP

If you cannot come first,
Try not to be counted as last. .
If nobody is with you,
Try not to be hated by all. .
If you cannot rise up
Try not to fall down. .
If you are not the best,
]Try not to be worst.

It's not just me...

Aside from being blatantly insulted by friends, family and complete strangers for having lip piercings, a red mohawk , and considerably different, dare I say, diverse, taste in music. Pop culture rubs me all sides of the wrong way. Anyway, I haven't watched BET in almost 10 year and still, if I turned to it within the prime time block of 2pm-9pm, I'd be greeted with the same dribble I saw then and the main reason I stopped watching it in the 1st place. And to all my peers: If I don't like and… Continue

I'm New Here...

Obviously I'm new here and there are no 'friends' requests yet, not that I expect any during this time of the year when everyone is having their Christmas and New Years with a loved one or whatever.

So, I'm an Alternative Electronic/Rock Singer/Songwriter who's record Nothing Sweeter is going to be released in March which will be upon us ridiculously soon that actually gives me time to plan out a tour later on this year. The reason I joined this site is because, I am always constantly in… Continue

Tech N9ne-KOD review

Ever since around 2002, I’ve been a fan of Kansas City, MO rapper Tech N9ne. His album Absolute Power was released on my 18th birthday, and that album changed my perspective on rap. I’ve even referred to his music as “progressive rap” due to the eclectic nature and lyrical references. Aside from Steve Vai, Randy Rhodes and various guitarists in Heavy Metal, Tech’s speed rap technique was very influential on my wanting to play faster guitar. A common theme through a good amount of Tech’s albums… Continue

SAUL WILLIAMS- THE MAN BEHIND THE FEATHERS

For a man who's name evokes intensity with a shield of mystery, Saul Williams' single presence can quiet an entire room packed with people crossing all racial demographics. Making history with Afro-punk as the headliner of the 2009 U.S. tour, Saul Williams seemed like the perfect candidate to represent our idea of freedom of expression fused with tossing out racial boundaries and social norms.…

almost Xmas

Yesterday the car officially went bye bye. I didn't cry. I was just really sad all day. I feel naked totally without it. I got $400 and spent half of it already on groceries and replacing stuff that needed it and hair. Sometimes I get antsy and call a cab.



I want to get new clothes but that isn't likely. I went to the salvation army and there wasn't a thing in there. sadness.



The exotic BP guy I don't think is going to happen. My second sense tells me he's not a very nice… Continue

The ClockTable is a organization with a goal for success that's presented with a

unique sound as art in the purist form of Music & Multie Media. Clocktable Musik is

a organization that strives for greatness and utilizes its resources to reach that goal

successfully. " HELP ME HELP YOU " is a cliche of The ClockTable.

“Hotel Atlanta Incidentals” Part 2:

Meeting Your Idol That You Never Knew



Since this is winter, the days are shorter; nightfall is at 6 PM and this Atlanta night is freezing. As I’m walking out of the mansion, I noticed this older gentleman who was doing the smoke bomb effects earlier in one of the scenes of the video. I see him leaning on the rail facing the pool. Puffing on… Continue
