Unknown Sensation

I made a budget for myself in power point.  I've also been cooking delicious meals.  I really always love taking center stage, but I was put on this Earth for more than that.  If I were as much of a sensation as I am in my overactive imagination, would I really be living the dream or not?  I'm enjoying the album, "Blackbird" by Alter Bridge whilst I write this post.  There's more options out there.  I'm going to keep learning!  I'm stuck in the middle with you.

iTunes in 2022

If you've read my blog or we've interacted, you'd likely know I love the old-school!  

The latest thing I've checked out was the functionality of iTunes now in 2022.

So, I used my iPad and redeemed a couple Apple gift cards.

I bought both a musical album and a movie on iTunes.

The album downloaded to both iTunes and Windows Media Player without issue.

To view the movie, I bought a USB-Type-C-To-HDMI adapter, and I was able to watch, "The Batman" on my living room TV. 

iTunes basically portals you to Apple TV for movies and TV.  It didn't look like you could view directly from iTunes.  To me, this appears to hurt the ease of use through a PC.  On an iPad it's pretty slick, though!  It was pretty easy, and the picture was good.  I loved that I didn't need to unlock my iPad to pause/resume the movie.

Aromatherapy in HD

I finished The Ballad of Icarus, so getting it ready for launch on streaming media!..  

Working to get really strong muscles to support my frame.

I went for a nice long walk yesterday evening as I bumped my favorite jams!..

And then, playing Yoshi's Wooly World was another treat entirely.

I have been enjoying iPad and added Twitch app.

Technicolor Light is a DJ, making really uplifting music, I discovered on Twitch!!!

Showing myself a lot of the ropes in iZotope as I remaster my 8dreamixes.

It is a powerful program, it runs smoothly, easy to use, and gets results!.. 

2 new originals going public on Spotify soon.

The Ballad of Icarus, which is in post production via Oasis CD online.

Speed Queen, which I have remastered myself.

I still need to create the appropriate artwork for these works.

Yesterday's walk was a real journey, I snapped some beautiful photos!..

I love being adventurous I really do.

A can of NOS energy and a hiker-nature-music-high is smarter for me than a bowl of the devil's lettuce.

So Said Solomon, Softball Sayer - Slowly Softly Soothingly

I have been writing rap lyrics and meanwhile creating drumline and guitar recordings for a different project.  On my walk yesterday, I practiced singing.  I found you should always enunciate but emphatic enunciation when singing in the much higher range, helps even more.  Consonants being exaggerated can perfect imperfection.  Also, it can give you a side quest as a vocalist and entertainer.  One of the compliments I've received as a singer is that listeners can always understand what I'm singing/rapping.  I sing soulfully, improve & work with what I got, yet keep it light even when a subject is heavy!

I have a lovely new friend in my life.  She lives a ways a way, but thankfully, we have plenty of phone calls.  I guess that is another adventure in the making!  

Metaphorically, I'm first at bat.  It is on me to watch the pitch, read the field, run the plates, and slide on home.  Kindness, love, empathy, ambition, calmness and smart thinking - are all rewarded.  You didn't hear that from a rookie!  You heard that from Donald Neu(jah homeboy talker, MC annnd fly walker: Phrosty D.)

Walk This Way

Journaling helps tame the noise upstairs, mediates for gremlins of fear and doubt, records activities throughout the years, documents personal and professional achievements.  Journaling is really good and I realized I was behind on my journal notebook.  My pen-crutch got me off my ass afterwards and so, homeboy has also cleaned my room a little more and started a load of laundry.  

I'm grateful for the support of my family and friends.  I'm grateful both for opportunities and pitfalls.  I'm grateful for passers by and friendly clerks.  I'm grateful for the internet for literally being essential but also giving me a public forum to share my music and musings on life, love, and the American way.  I'm grateful that I have a brain programmed to try again and learn by experience, a clever brain desiring to do its job well.  I'm grateful for my elders who have listened with me and steered me in the right direction.  I'm grateful for my disability in the way it allows me to see the world differently and is a conduit to create!

There's no free lunch, and life is no picnic.  But we are here to walk each forward in the direction of peace and prosperity.  We will fall.  We will take a few hits.  Maybe we'll even undergo an 8-Count.  Rest assured our personhood matters and we are future light.  So if life hands you lemons, don't just start blasting because I've been there too.  I've overreacted and defensively sunk in my teeth to a supposed enemy.  Here we are again, the voice in my head says, and it believes all the worst.  All I can really say is when you feel stuck and rather out of luck, it gets better, it works out, there is always a solution.  If a supposed enemy who was caught in the spiritual crossfire reads this, my apologies and higher intentions towards you and your way forward.  We sail by the same weather and are set by the same sun, on our way back home.

I'm grateful for my guitars and digital music studio.  I'm grateful for music in the park, disk golf, and doing skateboard tricks.  I'm grateful for my MP3 player, yes MP3 player LOL.  I'm grateful for libraries and shopping malls.  I'm grateful for my apartment and the grace given to make mistakes in my experience of independence.  I'm grateful for a nice bet, hot water, a stove, fridge, and microwave.  I'm grateful that my parents taught me right from wrong.  I'm thankful for the bullying I went through because it made me never want to put anyone else through that same thing, and it taught me compassion.  I'm thankful for games like 'Jenga: Bob's Burgers edition' 'Uno Dar' 'Cards Against Humanity' 'Mancala'.  I'm also thankful that God made me - just like this!

The bigger picture is love. I know I'm good.

So, I talked with an old friend on the phone.  She said we all have highs and lows and live imperfectly but keep looking up.  


When I got hospitalized for mental health, I began reading more.  It put my world in the context of that book's world.  I've kept reading for entertainment, and also a coping mechanism on into the now.  Reading feels more open to my interpretation.  


Music, skateboarding, videogames, cooking, reading, an eclectic education, and all my other ventures have value in and of themselves.  No more pressure.  Forget a cash grab.


The bigger picture is love.  I know I'm good.
