Golden Age (Demo) : 11.05.17

I believe we are the verge of something amazing. Never before has our species had access to so much information and connection to each other. If we can collaborate more and let go of our egos and our desire to dominate others we will see peace on earth. When we start providing for the needs of everyone regardless of race or class, we will know peace... we will see heaven on earth. This is the beginning of the Golden Age.

"At the brink of the golden age
All the information's in your hands
We don't know what to do with it
So we sit around without a plan
And I'm still fighting you
And you're still fighting over me
I'm still fighting you
Do we have to compete?
Teach me how to break away
Teach me how to break away with you
Cause I hate being a slave
I don't want to be a slave with you
And I'm still fighting you
And you're still fighting over me
I'm still fighting you
Do we have to compete?
Open the door, open the gate
To heaven, to heaven
Open the stars, open the love,
Of heaven, of heaven...
At the end of petro-age
Humanity came together to agree,
That there's no need for fights or war
When we all have everything that we need
I'm not fighting you, and you're not fighting over me
I'm not fighting you, we can live peace"

 

Numbered Identities : 02.12.15

Earlier this year, Lady Rae and I almost lost all forms of identity due to theft. This song came to describe the state of confusion I was in from trying to love others in a world of classism, numbered identity/existence, and hard data versus my own personal desire for humanity.

Inventory : 01.11.15

After any period of crisis, it is wise to take inventory of all that one has. On January 1st 2015 my car was stolen along with cell phones, wallets, and identity information. I feel just about out of the crisis, so I am taking inventory of what I have left as they pertain the two passions I have: MUSIC & DESIGN.

Guitars, PA systems, Speakers, Studio Mics, Oceanographers CDs, 1 Computer, 3 Hard Drives, and an education in Graphic Design.

...

After taking inventory of what I have I've realize that there is nothing to be worried about. I need to be thankful for all I have. Most of these things have been provided by my parents. A huge wave of gratitude and warmth sweeps over me. Even though there was nothing to prepare me for the trauma and effort it would take to leave the nest, they really left me with everything I needed to succeed. Thank you Mom and Dad.

Determination : 01.08.15

Every time The Oceanographers has fallen apart, the more determined I was to have it succeed. 2014 was the "Year Everything Came Together"... 2015 is the “Year of Determination”. Goals will be set and plans will be put into action to achieve them. I am determined to become a successful musician/designer in the land of infinite art.  

With this determination, I will be creating, testing, and documenting my process, ideas, and findings in this captain’s log on theoceanographers.com. My hope is that other artists will be able to find their own path at finding value in the world of cheap art.
