As you can see it looks like I may be running into a few issues using IFTTT. I'll tweak some of the settings and try again.

IFTTT

Nice to finally see a good mobile update for Google's mobile app. Anyway. I'm currently testing the service "IFTTT" If This Than That. Hopefully my services will share across the board as advertised.

"The Souls Of Black Folk"

Simply amazing book. I definitely recommend all to read if you haven't read this book already.

An excerpt from "The Souls Of Black Folk" by W.E.B. Dubois

"I have seen a land right merry with Sun, where children sing, and rolling hills lie like passioned women wanton with harvest.  And there in the King's Highway sat and sits a figure veiled and bowed, by which the traveler's footsteps hasten as they go.  On the tainted air broods fear. Three centuries' thought has been the raising and unveiling of that bowed human heart, and now behold a century new for the duty and the deed. The problem of the Twentieth Century is the problem of the color-line." - W. E. B. Dubois

What I love to do.



Tonight I'm enjoying my Courvoisier neat and doing one thing I absolutely love to do.  With that said, you should know that I'll be sharing some great music very soon.  I've recently been dedicating a lot more time to producing and mixing.  I'm not sure what it is but after I returned from Afghanistan I began to view how I spend my spare time a little differently then I did before I deployed.  Whatever it was that changed me has caused me to develop and seek perfection more
now then ever before.

LISTEN UP!!! #2 Porter Robinson and Kimbra

Hello everyone!  This week I've decided to try something new.  This past Monday, I opened up my trusty music companion Spotify and played the first new release title to pop up.  It was slightly liberating to simply choose without thinking to deeply.  I must say I am pleased with myself for being risky and just taking a chance.  When browsing the "New Release" section of Spotify I get a bit overwhelmed with the amount of artist I am unfamiliar with.  This usually detours me from taking a chance, and I usually end up going with the trusty old playlist.  Happy I didn't give up easily this time as I have discovered two albums that have refreshed my musical pallet.

The first album I discovered was "Worlds" by Porter Robinson.  I happen to be a fan of CERTAIN types of electronic music as I produce forms of electronic music myself.  I must say that after giving the album in its entirety a few listens, I feel like this album was created specifically for my ears.  I enjoyed every minute of it.  Be my guest and listen for yourself. The album is on the right! Enjoy!

    

(Favorite songs on Porter Robinson's "Worlds" - "Sad Machine", "Years Of War", "Sea Of Voices")


In my search for new and great music I discovered another album worth talking about.  "The Golden Echo" by Kimbra is definitely worth every minute.  This girl has got enough jazz, soul and personality in her voice to keep me listening for days.  I will have to say that even on my first listen I had to repeat a few songs before I continued. Yes they were just that good.  Her voice is well accompanied by intricate and sophisticated melodies that kept my ears on high alert.  If you are a musician like me the fine details won't go undiscovered.  Check it out below.  As of now I'm still very much enjoying this album.


   

(Favorite songs on Kimbra's "The Golden Echo"- "Goldmine","Rescue Him","As You Are".)


This will conclude LISTEN UP!!! #2.  Thank You to all who stop by every now and then.  I'll definitely try and keep you all updated on any other great music I happen to discover.

Ignorance Is A Disease!

Recently I skimmed over my Facebook timeline.  I came across a rather ignorant Facebook post.  Don't get me wrong I'm sure we've all seen our share of ignorance in social media, but seeing that post emptied any amount of tolerance I had left.

I have come to realize that there is insurmountable amounts of bullshit news getting passed over the web.  I have also come to realize that people are connected now more then ever before through advancements in social media.  With that said it is easier and faster to pass false information over the web.  This in itself is not at the core of my disgust.  The thought of individuals believing this false information along with many who look to social media for truth is what disgust me most.

So with that I leave you with one of my recent Facebook posts.

I'm Back!!! (Again) Back from Afghanistan

It's funny how I consistently post about being "back" from somewhere, but here I am back in the good ole U.S. from my nine month tour in Afghanistan.  I've been enjoying my CHARGED leave so far and it's quickly drawing close to its end.  I am currently sipping on my new favorite "Captain Morgan Black" and a "Rocky Patel Sun Grown" cigar.  I've recently visited my hometown which is currently undergoing a water crisis.  I'll post a link to that fiasco at a later date, but as of recently the situation is still unresolved.
 I'd just like to say thank you all for visiting my blog and I will definitely be posting more frequently now that I am safely home.  Thank you again.
  Oh and I also have great music in the works and on its way.  Just a few finishing touches I need to make.
