For anyone who follows me on wordpress, I have a new page on Facebook for the band I am in, the bands name is Tragic Magic. So go to the facebook page for Tragic Magic and like it and you will remain informed about the bands activity.
So, as I posted on my other blog, I am on vacation and hoping to make the most of my time. Hope to write at least one good essay exposing the frailty of our current system and how we are being duped and exploited for profit. The world is dying at the hands of those who think with their wallets and wisdom has become an afterthought. Common sense is a thing of the past, and education has been thrown under the bus. We need to wake up America, and then set good examples for the world. Isn’t that what we were famous for? Being world leaders? What happened. We were set up by bankers, corporations and our political system was shanghaied by those who wanted total power over the masses. We ignored warnings by such men as Thomas Jefferson, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and most recently, Ron Paul. They all warned of impending circumstances which would affect our quality of life and the opportunity to develop as a conscious race of people. All those warnings were shrugged off, ignored in favor of convenience. Now look at your neighbors as they work two or three jobs to survive. Look at your neighbors as they lose their homes. And think to yourself “that could be me next.”
Wake up America, time is getting close, and the new Rome will fall as predicted.
I was asked to write a guest post based on a comment I made on a blog recently, so I agreed based on the amount of hot air I had on the subject. It was posted yesterday, and its link is here, Guest Post: Shattered Dream Of Peace. If any of you get the opportunity, please check it out and give a comment, and thank Daan for allowing me to place my words and thoughts on his blog page, it would be appreciated.
In other news in my life, the band is coming along well. I believe there is no other band out there which sounds like us. Reason being – my vocals sound like no other vocalist. Not being pompous, just realistic. Example; Rod Stewart, not many sound like him – and you can usually pick up his voice. Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull, Robert Plant, from Led Zeppelin, John Cougar, and I think you get the point. They all have original voices. And so do I. So our material is unique. But its also because we have a timekeeper who is spot on, and a guitar player who can sit and write songs with me one after another – such is his creativity. No we only need to hire another bassist. We seem to be Spinal Tappish when it comes to bassists. Any good bassists out there? Anyhow, we plan to get a bassist, and record the first of (hopefully) many CD’s and then send them out into the world. And they are not songs based on hot women, fast cars or entertainment. They are songs based on thought, feelings, and change. Of course I make them sound too stuffy by describing them that way. And they aren’t stuffy. They range from classic rock styling to heavy metal and maybe a few mosh songs. I’m old but not dead, and can use my vocal cords to propel what I need to.
Well, enough for now, gotta go. keep in touch. And please check out the guest post I wrote. Thank you.
Today I try again to hold my bitter thoughts in as I go to work. I know there are better things I could be doing with my time…like starting a proper revolution, saving the world, creating with the knowledge I possess. But none of those things will pay the bills, so off to a thankless job.
