The Instinct

Now, I normally don’t like this kind of music. But when I hear heart in music, I can’t help but enjoy it on some level. I ended up listening to pretty much this entire album and had a good time. That’s gotta say something, right? Well, fuck you if you think otherwise, cause that’s just the way it is.

It’s rock. It’s fairly straight rock, but by no means classic rock. I would consider signing them if they were in Australia, cause I know they could draw a crowd and tap into that shit that sits on the fine line of normality, even if they’re not quite there themselves. Seriously, though, fuck what I think, you make your own damn mind up. That’s what it’s all about, right?

Civilization Type: Zero

This is an EP I’ve been working on. It’s not mastered but I don’t care, and you won’t either – the sound quality is fine because it’s electronic. Can you play it in a club? DON’T. It’s for relaxing. It’s for a Saturday or Sunday morning or whatever morning you decided to wake up and chill out and soak in sound.

It has a premise. Nikolai Kardashev first proposed the Kardashev Scale in 1964 to measure a civilization’s level of technological advancement, based on the amount of energy a civilization is able to utilize. The scale has three designated categories called Type I, II, and III. A Type I civilization uses all available resources impinging on its home planet, Type II harnesses all the energy of its star, and Type III of its galaxy. We remain a Civilization Type 0.

Don’t take this as a negative, as we are still a young and strange species. Maybe we will stay that way forever but look at the whacky progress we have made. We are not a -I nor a -II… we are moving forward and have come a long way…

Truth, Lies, Optimism, Negativity & Authentic World Peace

I will never lie to you, but I will lie to myself. I will convince myself I am good and strong enough to stand in front of a crowd with rocks in their hands, ready to fling them as hard as they can as my knees shake and my voice breaks. I will explode with anger and blood vessels will burst – sense will be made and sense will be shattered. My heart will ache and my heart will love, but I will never lie to you. Ever.

Truth is valuable and it helps us grow. We should share the truth as much as we can. What is the truth? What the fuck is the truth? Well, I don’t fucking know… something true? Something we know or feel to be not a lie. We can argue on this all day, but what happens when someone tells you one thing and another person tells you something else and you sit there with a look on your face wondering what the fuck is going on? It will happen to you; it’s happened to me. It happens all the damn time and rarely anything ever comes from it except a confusing feeling that something isn’t right. Well, that’s because something is terribly wrong and I don’t know what it is, all I know is lies are everywhere and lies are bad. Is that being negative? Well, fuck your optimism if it’s blind and ignorant because I’d rather be negative than be a sucker chump, even though it’s inevitable because we’re all sucker chumps – well, most of us.

Negativity is bad, nobody likes negativity it means something is bad and nothing can possibly be bad – we must surround ourselves with people who lick our assholes clean and tell us we are beautiful so we feel good about ourselves all the time because any form of criticism or negativity will shatter the illusion and that is .. bad… I mean good…

Whatever. Look, it’s Authentic World Peace !
