No sickness can come near to blast my health;

My life depends not upon any meat;
My bread comes not from any human tilth;
No wings will grow upon my changeless wealth;
Wrong cannot touch it, violence or deceit;
Thou art my life, my health, my bank, my barn–
And from all other gods thou plain dost warn.


new piece of “kit”…

pianodeserves a new song right? Well – I haven’t worked much with this piano yet – it was tweaked over Christmas by a family member, and is tuned, at the very least, somewhat to itself. It is from Holland originally, and is quite old – will say more as I find out more….Yesterday I was working on cleaning out the fireplace – and I sat down and played this cascading melody…and then decided to go downstairs and see how “ïn tune” it was with my studio, then I wrote this song…took about 30 minutes – and I decided to share it with you – I am actually working on another tune with ambitious, yet to be announced plans – but this will have to do for now you said

ok – there it was…

it was fun to watch a Wednesday go by without putting a wallop up. Some of you are wondering where SKIA / Pull is, well – I put it up – and unless you were here within an hour (via RSS or something) I took it down. It’s just too much for right now (it really is melt your speakers aggressive) – plus – I wanted to go a wed without publishing anything – you know – just to see what it’s like. Plus – I already have been working on the next song I will be putting up… I think…I actually have the lyrics this morning for another song which might be cool…we’ll see – gotta check with my label – they’re saying moneys tight – and Lady GAGA is the bomb.

The blessedness of life –

depends far more on its interest than upon its comfort. The need of exertion and the doubt of success, renders life far more interesting to the poor than it is to those who, unblessed with the anxiety for the bread that perisheth, waste their poor hearts on rank and reputation.

Happy 1-1-11!

honestly – I entered this simply because the numbers are too cool. Having said that – I really do want to wish each and every one of you a great and healthy body, soul and spirit and, well I have some newsworthy news. The wallops have come to a close (you knew that right?) – but have no fear – that does not mean that the flow of songs have stopped – it simply means there will be a slightly different emphasis as the year 2011 begins to rise and walk. I have been signed to a new jingle agency in New York – more on that will follow. I hope to be spreading my creative wings into some video and animation technologies, along with writing fresh batches of songs – even having a new challenge in mind (kind of like the wallop series – but a bit heartier if you will). I have some interesting projects in the works that require some prolonged focus too, so the timing of the new in terms of year / benchmarks etcetera couldn’t be better. So stay tuned and here is to a wonderful 2011!
