I was laying awake last night and thinking something… I can’t fully recall what exactly the thought that occurred to me was. I should have gotten up right away to write it down, as I know it will return to me at an inopportune moment.
Earlier this week, I was reminded of The Weather And, The Wine (Be Warned, Things Could Get Naked) — Over a year ago, we were sitting enjoying drinks and watching the bad weather, only to find out that it was a coming tornado (not near off) — We had no idea! — Well, as that’d happened before, we had our own “separate” tornado scare recently; the weather sirens went off, except this time I have a child so, I can’t drink and laugh and curse at the sky. We actually had to quickly go down to the basement and wait it out. Nothing came of it but some heavy rain (thank goodness).
Again, the change of perspective looms in my mind. I am a moody mess some days. But then I remember where I am now, who I’m becoming, and all the shit I’ve been through. I am grateful. I am angry, but I am grateful.
Channeling The Anger:
I’ve wanted to push a few select songs to the mainstream radio to see how they will do. It’s a big step, it has it’s own risks, kinda. A lot of work must be done, most of which my partner is doing, because let’s face it; he is much more organized and disciplined than I am currently. I am however, a work of art (in progress), and this FM radio push was my idea.
The parts are in motion, time will tell.
Like a hyper-child, I just farted?
I have a few other creative ideas brewing that I will need to fully flesh out, before moving forward.
As you may be aware, Takeo Tama Co and it’s affiliated artists (ie: SS and I) have been working hard in the background to continuously distribute and redistribute title after title and more are on it’s way.
From adversity comes diversity, but that’s a story for another day. As usual there is a wide range of music represented here. Continue to check out what’s available for streaming and digital downloads.
As well as a few titles are available in physical disk form.
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…

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?
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!”
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.
