What If?

What if we’ve been played? I thought there was a lot of weird happenings during the past few years. Lots of things don’t add up. This Santa Surfing video was removed from YouTube, but I got the Vimeo link:

Very Interesting….

What do you think?

The Ultimate Goal

The ultimate goal of the 2-5% of those protesting the premeditated murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis on Memorial Day is to divide, then force us into socialism. Look at who’s funding a lot of it:

George Soros- Puppet Master

Recognize this man? Research for yourself. He has help elect a radical group of influential politicians over the years with the vast wealth he has accumulated off others’ misery. He is the definition of evil. Just look at him. Don’t believe me-research.

Divide and conquer-the goal.

We had a “President” that tried hard to start a race war for eight years. He failed because Americans are good freedom-loving people. We have a lying mockingbird press that gets their marching orders early every day; they all read those exact lies daily-verbatim. They’ve been complicit, but we’re waking up.

Guns

Why does every mass killing (planned by the deep state) always end up with politicians trying to take guns from law-abiding citizens? Gee, isn’t that what happened in Nazi Germany?

Look familiar?

Didn’t they disarm Blacks after the Civil War? Wasn’t that easier for the Democrat KKK to keep them enslaved and intimidated?

Guns are to protect the citizenry from their over-reaching government. Look at Venezuela, Cuba, etc. Guns are what they want because then, they have no resistance to steal all of your freedom.

Climate Change

I’ve always called “Climate Change” “Weather”. Carbon credits are nothing but payoffs/wealth distribution-robbery. A lot of the so-called experts have been paid-off. Face it- you can make a study to show anything for enough money.

China

Covid-19 easily could have been a pre-planned event to make Communist China the world’s top economic power-cornerstone of the Global Cabal. It came from Wuhan. It was man-made, not naturally occurring. Who actually released it is not clear. Let’s find out. Their freedom grab in Hong Kong backfired.

I don’t take anything in the mainstream media/socialist politicians at face value. They LIE! That’s kept them in power-not for long!

Again, what if we’ve been played? We have. Research!

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!

The Outlier Saga

The Outlier Saga…

The Outlier saga begins in March, 2018.  I had retired from a job I had for thirty years to devote more time for music and video pursuits.  I scrapped my web hosting service, began learning WordPress, set up a new website, fired YouTube, Facebook, Google, and LinkedIn, learned a new video editor (Filmora),  began a blog, and just walked away from anything that I could not support.  Also, we began a two month home renovation, so it was a very transitional time,  indeed.

Now What?

Now, we began by getting a  couple of sounds together…  I chose Waverazor to get a bass we can drop in when needed.  Then, I added a couple more sounds using Waverazor (again) and Syntronik.  SampleTank 3 is a VST I often use, and this time is no exception.  These plugins are made by Ik Multimedia.  I chose a 16 instruments-worth of sounds that I think might work.  My philosophy is simple- use a lot of instruments for small stretches.   If I’m bored, you’ll be bored, right?

I needed to have a title track for my new album-“Outlier”, so now what?  First, I had to shove away the clutter by getting the Skyypilot website back up, start a blog, switch my video host to Vimeo, learn  Filmora (for editing my videos), and began to use some new, essential Waves plugins.

Let the Music Begin!

After choosing 87 bpm (beats per minute), let’s let the music begin!  I just started out on Waverazor and got sounds for the two tracks that those two instances occupy.  Then, I picked a sound that Syntronik would trigger.  These samples are from vintage synthesizers, so that’s always interesting.  Putting old sounds with new is a good thing for we short-attention span folks!  No instrument is totally set in stone at any point (in my view).

OK, now I let the recording roll along and sparsely fill the space with sounds and little themes that I attempt to stitch together.  After starting and stopping for about 8:37,  I decide to end the free-form with a little rock.

I  put a rhythm and two slide electric guitar parts through Amplitube 4, another fine Ik Multimedia product for guitar and bass processing.  You can completely change any guitar tone AFTER the recording-invaluable!

I decided the bass parts would be shared with a sample from Ethno 2 , Waverazor, and Waves’ Codex.

Get a Groove Going

Time to get a groove going on the Outlier saga…  I put together midi loops from Waveform 9,  DrumCore 4, and various odds and ends.  Usually, I have a couple of different-sounding midi kits that blend together.  I selected drum kits in DrumCore 4 and one of in previously chosen SampleTank 3 instruments.

Now, I put my simple blues guitar theme on it- two slide and one rhythm guitar.  Next, I added a simple bass part, trading with a Waverazor instrument track.  I filled in a couple of chord progressions with SampleTank 3 instruments and percussion from Waveform 9.  

Taking Shape

This song is taking shape.  Next, I wrote  the lyrics to rock section- “Walk Away”.  After singing along a few times, I have a melody in a framework.

The end has a call and response thing going on.  I decided to be the three piece one-man chorus, so there you go…

The Choices…

All the choices we have in audio plugins are staggering.  I use mainly Waves and IK Multimedia plugins, but I’ll describe these and the others more in depth as my blog slogs on…  You have to “fish or cut bait” at some point, and live with your choices.

I’m finishing up this 16:30 monstrosity soon…

To be continued,,,
