Yours is an optical mind of the optimal kind; and mine turns melodic and harmonic tides, words that rhyme forming moments in sonic time. With the help of the sounds running through the underground, vibrations paint auditory landscapes. All of it could make, break, or elevate our frame of mind, forming an optimal optical kind. So, moving picture shows are made for cinemaphiles like you, and vivid soundtracks are made for audiophiles like me.
Care for a spot of green tea with honey and ginseng ? Rich in antioxidants, creating a subtle sense of confident confidants. These words are my bond on either side of the pond. Bloody Hell, can't you tell this scene is a sacred secret dreaming ? And now here are the screaming bastions of passions. No matter how we tell them the truth of the matter, it shatters their walls forming the infinite halls the size of a high multiple of pi. Never ending ascending stairs rise toward a sky that abides being eternally next to be. Walk with me...
With riddles I excel far better than well enough. Too tough, rough, the stuff that cinema and audio addicts wrestle with as we drift, for you and I'll be gone in the global miles. Now if you excuse me while I attend Mass, genuflecting with class in a cemetery so very vast. As massive as this universe, you and I always defying defining the glorious ascension as a mention of pi's pine staircase, where the pieces of the infinite space-time fall into place. These our infinite hours, we're only beginning the surface scratching as ideas are hatching entwining and matching the best of intentions in our casual causal relationship of creation. For this all is our nature, without hesitation as you bend the lights slow; I'll bend the pitches home; and now the show begins to grow and flow. As the orchestra swells, as they raise the curtain... Here we go.
How are you today ? This is another Update Blog, so although I have taken issue with a few things, I'll leave that all to another time.
In Carnegie Mellon University news, I'm still debating whether to apply to the Creative Writing program in the English Department or the Music Composition program in the College of Fine Arts. As a transfer student, I can only apply to one school at a time so, there's all of that to consider.
Will have to talk with my cousin who designed the album art for “At This Point” about starting the printing process and ordering the finished product. I'm stuck on that because I plan to submit the album as my portfolio. I'm also awaiting an answer from CMU on whether that will suffice.
I think that I stand a better chance of being accepted into the DC of H&SS (Dietrich College of Humanities & Social Sciences), and then begin my sophomore year in the BHA program (Bachelors of Humanities and Arts) for a career as a Singer-Songwriter in the music world, with great connections to pretty much go anywhere I want. What would be really great is if I could teach as a Professor at CMU. I know that I'm crazy about this University, but it's one of my homes, and in my life those are few and far between.
Wow… didn't think that I had that much to say.
As always, if you need somebody to lend an ear, I'm right here. I may write a few tons, but when you talk I'm all ears, somebody to bounce ideas off of, to be an objective 3rd party. I'm still online interspersed throughout the day, and I check my email and such once or twice every day. That is still the case now that we're living in Florida. So... no worries needed there.
Keep on keeping on,
I'm certain that some of yinz are wondering why the surge of posts about LGBTQ rights on my social media sites. This is why... since moving down here to Tampa, Florida, I've come to feel as if I'm being followed around by the people here in the south. I know that it's just an insecurity or probably my paranoia, but none the less it has come to bother me.
But then again, living here in '96 - '99 there were many times that were filled with clashes between LGBTQ and Southern Baptist and Evangelical Bible-Beaters.. On the drive down through Northern Florida there was billboard after billboard about it (Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve-type ads).
And so, I won't forget where I've come from, because frankly it's worse here now than the late 1990's, which is probably because Marriage Equality has become the law of the land and so many down here resent it tremendously.
So when you see an influx of this type of post, just remember: I will try to not become obsessed and/or bitter. I just don't want to live that way, but The Ghost and I are living this... here and now. As always, I'm here to hear everyday. Simply comment, email, or look for me on social media sites. I will be there for you. Until then, just remember that you matter, and to respect, honor, and love yourself.
Keep on keeping on,
I greatly love taking photos at interesting locations and in certain moments of time, when both of them seem to jump out at me. The photos used here were taken in an 1800's Hot Spring Resort in an Arkansas valley that was part tourist trap, part homeopathic paradise. Back then the only cameras that I owned were one-time use cameras, so that's what accounts for the crappy quality of the photos.
"Midnight Blue" was composed and penned far more recently. The strange beauty that I felt when creating the song is the very same eerie "Insane Asylum" quality of the resort. Don't get me wrong; I was captivated the whole time, snapping photos of the amazing stained-glass windows, but the presence of an electric shock therapy machine next to a bed and the other strange devices like a beauty parlor chair that looked more suitable for a dentist office chair... everything was so strange, complex, and yet surprisingly beautiful. Actually, "Midnight Blue" has that same quality to it. It's strange, broody, and complex, tying together its own complexity in 2-3 lines at the end of the song.
Every facet of this artistic venture was all created by me. That just seems to be the way of things recently. Kuderski is overrun by project after project these days, so when the concept came to me, I just bought the needed software and went to town with it.
It's not uncommon for me to do said creating all at once. "MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 2015 Plus" is quite reasonable price-wise, and is also turning out to be a great fit for the concepts that I have in mind for future videos. It's fairly intuitive and user friendly. plus plenty of new functions to mess around with over time, keeping me interested. Can't wait to see what comes out of this all creatively.
Check over the "Midnight Blue" 3-Track Single below, If you like what you hear, it's $1.00 for the whole thing, or whatever you feel the tracks are worth to you. As always, yinz guys, if you need somebody to give their undivided attention for wherever we are in this thing we call consciousness, I'm right here. Goodnight and God Bless.
