Trump is a disaster with issues on climate change, true. But the change of our economical structure is inevitable as solar, wind, and renewable energy sources grow less and less expensive they are passing that curve where coal is too expensive thus forcing more and more coal plants to shut down and large corporations switching over to renewables because not only are they cleaner and more efficient, but they are becoming more economically beneficial for them as well. Therefore, our environment will not be saved by political reasons, but because of economical reasons. Silver lining yah yah, keep hope ey 😉😇

I was talking to a DACA recipient last night and his story of how his family came over here is incredible. His mom came here when he was five and his little brother was born here. They are super loving people and hard workers, all of them have no criminal record and multiple jobs. If Trump’s DACA plans are to go through after these six months here, his little brother would be left here without a family and him and his mother would have to leave their family and work to go to Mexico where there is no family or livelihood waiting for them. Please write your local representatives to stand up for DACA. Text “RESIST” to 50409

Hops on soapbox:
No one needs you. They prefer your presence in their life. Self-preservation of life is the first law of nature. Despite how much we may think we need someone, we learn to live without them if we have to.

Thus, what this need we feel is, is a selfless love to share part of our life with one another. Therefore overwhelming gratitude to my family and friends who prefer sharing part of their life with me. Thank you for not needing me, yet still choosing my presence. Infinite Love

*hops off soapbox*

The difference between the truth of this world and the truth of Love is that one divides and tears down and One builds up and gives grace. The alikeness is each truth pisses everyone off in one way or another 😂

Wow, an honor to be on the same show as Brother Ali Flogging Molly and Aphex Twin

The mystical Black Lion looks out ahead with his eyes fixed and focused out unto the horizon. Upon some point of past shadows and demons with the blood, he paid through countless battles to be at the point where he is now, is still poignantly fresh and trickling down his eye and the front of his mane. Here he still stands victorious. A heart catharticly emoting the treasures and wars of it’s own eternalness. This is my spirit animal. This is my story. This is Kidnapped.

This album Kidnapped is both literal and personal for me from a whirlwind of emotions from when I was young and then extrapolating that metaphorically paralleling the effects of an enslaved mentality and the way the world works.

 

In case any of you may be interested in the breakdown of this universe deemed Kidnapped, this is in way a double album that works to each of it’s parts. The halves CD 1 & CD 2 are split in 18 songs a piece, symbolically representing the gift of ‘Life’ blessed to Us. (חי )

 

Each part has it’s respective bonds as well. Tied to the trauma of Kidnapped thy psyche…

The first half represents physical and emotional trauma. Each half however, is in two parts, broken between 9 songs a piece…9 numerologically is linked to the cross and finality of things. The first nine songs tied to physical and the next nine emotional.

 

The second half represents psychological and spiritual trauma. Also to note, the first 9 songs of the album and last nine allude to each other more with words while the middle flow with each other more musically, giving the universe of Kidnapped a circle, mathematically π or ‘Life’…

 

The weird and wild chaoticness of a Kidnapped psyche is balanced by breaking these two testaments of lives within themselves for a structured four parts bound by the cross, or nine. Four represents disciple and stability, thus winning back the psyche from what was Kidnapped. Furthermore, for each part of nine there is a song that acts as a bridge on the fifth song of each of the four parts. The fifth being perfectly fit to give flux within each part to give ties and leeway respectively within each.

 

Lastly, there are three bonus tracks. Of course three representing the trinity. Two books of Life with the trinity hiddenly woven beyond it. Thus, we brave the thirty-nine stripes of Jesus Christ. In essence, One may be Kidnapped, but the soul only grows beyond…Thusly, in a world of where religions are bastardized, the holy spirit within Us cannot be defeated. God was stolen from Us. Kidnapped is the stealing of God back unto His children…

 

Love has already won; so we will always overcome…

This is the first song I’ve completed entirely in Japanese!

Shh, this is one of the bonus tracks off the upcoming Kidnapped album so it may only be on Soundcloud for a limited time. The instrumental was produced by the awesome DJ Cutlass!  This is a fun Japanese trap song that is bouncy and danceable while still being lyrical and uplifting, I hope you dig it and have as much fun bouncing around to this as I did making it 🙂
