American Individuality

American Individuality is a song I wrote over ten years ago. The recording of this song was for my “Interstellar Sideshow #13” album. It was only a few months before my successful cancer treatment. (God is good!) When first recorded, the lyrics were darker. The verses were rapped (the first and only time I’ve done that). It was a different time, for sure…

Fast-forward ten years; I’ve learned more. Audio plug-ins have advanced to allow worthwhile revisiting everything I’ve previously recorded. When I hear the difference-Wow!

After looking at the old negative lyrics, I kept the title-but nothing else:

American Individuality

Everything you think you know is wrong.
Indoctrinated at an early age.
Many people with separate songs
Try to escape from society’s cage.
Constant struggle sifting through it all.
Propaganda on a major scale.
Willful blindness precedes the fall.
In the end, it’s certain God prevails.

More than survive, we will thrive – American individuality.

Break the chains that hold you down.
Eliminate pre-determined thought.
Take a stance, stand your ground.
Become that someone you’ve always sought.
Each of us is more than statistic
Or mad experiment run amok.
Choosing faith over State or mystic,
And self-control over luck.

What It’s About

Here’s what it’s about: America was founded on individual freedom, not the collectivism preached in the socialist cesspools of “higher learning”. Sure, it’s hard to fight the constant bombardment of lies we’re subjected to daily, but we must. Struggle makes the victory that much sweeter.

People are beginning to wake up from their deep slumber. We are tired of a two-tiered justice system which caters exclusively to the “ruling” class. We exist in an increasingly fragmented and hostile society. Artificial intelligence animates the inanimate and kills off the living.

Despite the obstacles- more than survive, we will thrive

American Individuality!

Free Speech-Part 3, Winter Soldier Video

Ending Attacks on Free Speech

After years of watching Socialists, Communists, Fascists, etc. completely stifle free speech and free thought in schools and media, we finally have a President who is ending attacks on free speech. College campuses especially are no longer places for lively debate. If you are white, conservative, Christian, over 50, you have no platform to speak. I won’t be subjected to the violence others spew on social media while people with my point of view are racist, haters, etc. Talk about bullies! This blog contains Part 2 of my ongoing narrative about free speech.

President Trump At CPAC 2019

President Donald Trump at CPAC March 2, 2019 said:

“We reject oppressive speech codes, censorship, political correctness and every other attempt by the hard left to stop people from challenging ridiculous and dangerous ideas. These ideas are dangerous,” Trump said. “Instead we believe in free speech, including online and including on campus.

“Today I’m proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research grants….”

“If they want our dollars, and we give it to them by the billions, they’ve got to allow people like Hayden (Hayden Williams, the young conservative assaulted recently at UC Berkley) and many other great young people and old people to speak. Free speech. If they don’t, it will be very costly.”

I will no longer be silent about my thoughts on President Trump. He will fight for my right for free speech. That’s why I love America and I will die for that right. There will no longer be a doubt who I support from now on. I support President Trump because he has clearly shown me that I as an individual, my right for free speech is as important to him as it is to me. Call us racists?-NO!-LOOK IN THE MIRROR!!! DO THE RESEARCH!!!

Just the Start

This is just the start. We are in the midst of a great awakening. People are starting to see what’s going on and they are demanding changes from the people who are data-mining them, as well as the government that they fork over ever-increasing taxes to.

I’m not the only person to leave the big search engine and social media. We won’t be back unless and until the playing field is leveled. As far as government is concerned-TERM LIMITS!

Say what you will, but so will I. I support individual freedom, not violent mobs. I stand with President Trump. That’s my choice. God Bless America!

Winter Soldier Video

I wrote a couple of earlier blogs about constructing my composition, now it’s time to produce and release my “Winter Soldier” video.

First, lets go back to where we left off. I had the lyrics and worked out the vocals. Then, I recorded them, along with some guitar- a little rhythm and some slide run through my Amplitube 4 plugin. Next, I mixed down to a 24-bit master wav file.

I took the finished file and dropped it into my Filmora Pro video editing software. I started making videos with Windows Movie Maker, but soon learned about Wondershare Filmora which I now use because of it’s great value and features.

Lastly, I get my videos from Storyblocks Video, there again, for quality and value. I string them together, add some effects, render, and upload to my Vimeo channel. Here is the final video:

From here, I will then release the 9 minute single of “Winter Soldier” on DistroKid.

On to the next project!
