America the Beautiful

In my ventures throughout Rock & Roll, I now test myself as a producer. Not an easy task at all (especially when working with amazingly talented people). I’m fortunate that I wasn’t limited by the skill of others. I feel like it went well and I hope it reaches you…

The Story

We’re in an age where laws are created to suit the needs of the highest bidders and Wars are started just to keep weapons revenue and other financial interests rolling. We’re in an age where information and misinformation runs more rampant than the diseases they want to vaccinate us from, where it is no longer “acceptable” to discipline your child, but you can march through streets in protest, dressed as a woman’s genitals; where utmost importance in schools is placed on sports and tests rather than ‘actual’ education, and where basic healthcare is too expensive, and life saving procedures mean a lifetime of debt for yourself and your family members.

Welcome to the American Dream?


Asides:

My great-great grandparents came on a boat to America to escape everything that is essentially now commonplace.

And of course, it’s not just in America.

As one person on Takeo Tama’s previous blog commented, “You want talk paradigm changes, ey? Come 2 SERBIA!”

I believe You!

I have something to tell you…

Some of you had commented on one of my previous blogs, that you were glad to see me ‘back’, I have to admit, there is a good reason for why I had slowed down. But No, I’m not stopping.

I basically slept through most of December, January and February.  Yes, I’m fine, and no nothing was wrong.  It’s funny though, I wish I was not joking (about the sleeping part) I’m feeling much more awake now, and as you see..  back to business as usual.

So I guess what I’m ready to tell you guys outright is… that I’m expecting a baby!

I should be able to introduce my new bundle of joy to the Takeo Tama Team and to the world this summer. Hopefully to become a great aspiring artist, musician, inventor, and rocket-scientist. (or some combination of these). I couldn’t be happier.

Life has changed a lot for me in the past 5 years especially, my perspectives have changed, and I know they will continue to change. They have all been good changes, wanted changes, and I am looking forward to continuing our adventures with my new little one.

My healthcare job will of course have to stop for a little while, But the change of pace will be fine, if not only a little financially scary.

I know everything will “come out in the wash” so to speak. SO for now, I’m trying to stay as healthy as I can, and prepare.

New music, new art, new ideas, and a new found understanding of complete and total love will surely follow.

Thank You Friends, for your support.

Consolidations and Anticipations

In case you noticed, the websites have been consolidated. As Sekrett Scilensce so eloquently put.. “My site is a penis after showering”, (Though I do not wish to compare my website to this ridiculous mental image).

These consolidations come as we are spending more time and focus on uploading our music, recording songs and putting new ideas into motion.

On a personal note, I am anticipating winter’s end so that I can spend more time sightseeing some of natures beauties without being cold and worrying about the car slipping off the road and into a ditch.

My time in the Midwest has been life changing and exciting but I am looking forward to seeing where our travels will take us next.

More to come soon!

The Bloody Crocodile, Cake, and Jazzyness

First of all, How have I never seen “Finding Neverland” until now? It’s poetic, it’s hopeful, it’s tragic, and I just almost bawled my eyes out for 10,000 reasons at once.

“I suppose it’s like the ticking crocodile, isn’t it? Time is chasing after all of us, isn’t that right?”

I’m often accused of being off in my own world. I suppose it’s like that for artists of many sorts. It’s not as much about being displeased with the current reality, as it is about just getting lost in your self, and finding where it takes you.

Don’t get me wrong, I have several goals set, and I feel i’m practical and efficient most the time, but then there is the almost hyper, whimsical, silly, and easily distracted side that can imagine a whole course of events from one decision, only to come to the conclusion that the other choice may have a more exciting outcome. Decisions, Decisions, So many decisions…

I picture an image of the starving artist these days, just wanting to get their music heard. Then there’s me, the not-so-starving artist.  Partly because I baked a cake, (Ooey-Gooey Goodness) and partly because I ate my cake.  Just curious, did any one catch my joke just now? I enjoy puns and jokes a little too much.

I still want you to hear my music though. After all, time chases after each of us, eh? Some times you have to turn, stop and chase after some of it yourself. It may have taken a while, but that’s what I did.

So now I present to you my latest…

“Special, (I’m In No Mood)”

One word.. “jazzyness”. I like it.

True Movie Magic And The Masses Who Miss And Missed It

In between working on things, I spend some of my time watching movies. I love older films mostly. More story, less CGI/explosions, and realistic dialog.

Kids cussed, families weren’t perfect, and the realness of it was just good. It’s a relief to view them, not all the actors and actresses had perfect teeth or bodies, it’s just life, and good story-lines portrayed.

In one, the cop just wants to retire so his nutty wife can relax, but he ends up hunting down a deranged ex-husband who has snapped.

(Can you guess which movie this is?)
Tell me below…

In another, all the students trying to become doctors test what lies beyond death by killing and then bringing one another back.

(Can YOU GUESS which movie this is?)
Tell me below…

In another, a young boy wants so desperately to be older that he wishes it, only to find that he teaches others how to be younger at heart.

(CAN YOU GUESS which movie this is?)
Tell me below…

Every film has been enjoyable for different reasons and, they are extremely creative. They have meaningful plot twists and even though some are more far fetched than others, they’re somehow relevant beyond reality.

I don’t watch daily television programming at all, although, I have to admit, I will occasionally get sucked into a season of some series and marathon it for a day or two.

My original sin?

Damn you NETFLIX!

And now, an important message from, TAKEO TAMA:

Scroll down below and tell me if you know which movies I watched, or, you can tell me about the time you got sucked into your TV and found yourself riding horseback in an old western, but, don’t tell me about the time you met Jesus and bet him five dollars that he didn’t really know The Devil (we all have an idea how that likely turned out)…

The Weather And, The Wine (Be Warned, Things Could Get Naked)

Here I am, engrossed in my own world, listening to music, working on a painting, the windows are all open, the wind kicks up, I’m enjoying the breeze with a glass of wine…

Wind, which is now throwing the blinds all over the place, add some lightning–It is beautiful, it is bright, it is “extremely” loud and ‘incredibly’ close…

Wine has a funny way of changing your perspective. It gives you grand ideas, such as, “Yay, let’s go outside and watch it.”

I love watching lightning.

The next day, it turns out the town closest to mine had a tornado (in which no one was harmed thankfully).

My oblivion nature makes me laugh…

There is much I don’t know about this entertainment industry. Further still, much I don’t know about myself. I’m still learning and growing and stretching to see how far I can reach. I haven’t always been a Professional Singer. This is new (although, I used to be a magician’s assistant, for a short while).

And as they say, “Don’t quit your day job?”–Well, my day job is in the medical-field but be warned, this music, this art, and my company are not my ‘hobby’. It is not my “pet project’. I just might drop kick the next person that infers that this is all it is.

You can not be a king in your own village, eh?

Blow me (and yeah, I’m a girl but, do it anyway).

With the completion of each new song, I feel the excitement of possibilities. I get excited because this is all stuff that If I heard it elsewhere, I would enjoy listening to it, and they would become my new favorites. I find myself humming them during work, around my patients, and apparently, there is some humming that I do even in my sleep.

Anyhow, about that magician’s assistant thing; this was many years ago. Don’t laugh too hard, but prepare to be amazed!!
