David Bowie 1947– 2016

​ In the wake of learning about Bowie’s death, one of two things compel me to write. One was how amazing the film Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars was. I actually watched it on his birthday on Friday night with my love. I found myself so enthralled by the sound and the performance,…

Mixdown Begins

I should really state that it has truly begun already since the pre-mix stage for most of the songs is already a step in that direction, but it is a technicality in truth. Mixdown has begun. There is one song left to edit vocals to, and that is Polaroid. There is a song called Dead…

Mortality

This morning was a little tough. I awoke with this feeling of my mortality on this world. I am a believer of an afterlife, or rather an interim life, since what I believe actually happens is that you come back here to learn a lesson, or maybe even take a class on an aspect of…

Angels and Demons

I was out shopping… leaving the store. I kept thinking that my morning had been off to a strange undefined start. An accident that morning (not mine), my wanting to scrub things, the decision to hold off creativity, but not being able to (wrote music this morning) seemed to me markers of sorts.. but when…

Creo que la felicidad no es un misterio, solo que no debe ser definida. Todo cambia. Entonces, mejor no definir si no explorar las avenidas que se abren o se cierran en la buscada de una vida mejor.

Time is a vampire. It begins taking from you the moment you are conceived. Draining you of life slowly. There is no sunlight, garlic, wooden stake or prayer that will stop this monster. It eventually feeds until there is nothing left

Hay días en cual ciertas memorias vuelven como fantasmas en las brisas de verano. Me hace parar y pensar. Aveces hasta sonrió. Es increíble la memoria de la piel.

The Journey Ends?

When I last left off, I was leaving the area between Sudan, TX and the plains of New Mexico, which was a full day and  night of dreary driving in the rain and fog. I dubbed that jaunt The Wastelands, and although this one village I filmed and photographed was indeed a prize to end…

The Wastelands

I was in the heartland, and it was so sunny, so wondrous.. but by nightfall last night the rain had begun, and everything seemed grayer than my camera could take it. I stopped in for the night near Sudan, TX and had a good night’s sleep. My spirits were high. That is until I stepped…

The Test.

I awoke to find that the rain had not stopped, and it did not from the time I left till now, at Cline’s Corner.. NM. I have 6 hours to go before reaching the Grand Canyon, but this last jaunt of the trip has been the most trying for me. The weather turned from rain…

Journey PT.2

I have stopped in the town past Santa Anna, Tx, funny enough. The place just called out to me. There’s nothing for miles but this little Steak House in the middle of nowhere. And here I am, enjoying a Coor’s Light and waiting for a T-Bone, Texas style. This will be my full meal of…

Journey Pt.1

The flight to Houston is great so far. I managed to sleep one hour, and when I awoke, the melodies of two songs I still needed to commit lyrics to were on my mind. Out came the laptop, and I went through them both. So although no vocal tracking was done, I can honestly say…
