The New Era - A Musical Collage... 

Musical Video Collage, created mostly to complement the 'Allies' track; and not intended to represent any person, thing, or event...

 

Hmm, interesting. Just noticed the following photos in my Pictures folder (that I completely forgot about) from when I moved to (and lived in) Raleigh, of vehicles that just happened to drive (or be) in front of me. This license plate reads: REMBR911. The next one reads: RLNTLSS. And the one after that reads: 'Demented'!!! Ooh, good. (Its all psychological, man). Damn. Ya' just can't make this stuff up. No further comment...

The New Era - Allies 

This track was somewhat influenced in part, by a fascinating (and very deep) book written by David Wilcock called: The Ascension Mysteries.

The song should soon be available at online music sites such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon...

Disclosure: I do not personally know David Wilcock, so I am not necessarily endorsing (or not endorsing) him or his work (at this time) because, once again, good judgement comes from good character; bad judgement from bad character. But what I will say, is that this particular book is an extremely interesting read in parts, and may very well hit upon some very deep truths, that you will probably just not read (or hear) anywhere else in quite the same way; with even some of the things (he writes about) which I myself have learned (and sensed) in my own research about things. (In other words, some of these things, at least, sorta' lines up in a way). I'm very open minded myself, and glean whatever knowledge I can, that kinda' makes sense, and (figuratively) throw away the other stuff, that doesn't; or is somewhat questionable...

For instance, the Luciferian Cabal thing, sorta like hinted at in The Rolling Stones, 'Sympathy For The Devil' track, and their album: 'Her Satanic Majesties Request' is something I started to wonder about myself later on in life. (Although, some of my friends and I were big Stone fans, and use to play many of their songs when we were kids, but didn't exactly realize what we were playing or singing at the time, when we used to perform that particular song for instance). Also, among other things, like the Rosemary's Baby movie (which is a VERY dark flick) and the relationship to Sharon Tate, Charles Manson, etc. are just some of the things Wilcock goes through, that really sheds light (no pun intended) on allot of this shit, and (as I said) which I started to understand myself, as to what it was all about (later on in life) when doing my own research on these things, for personal reasons; as I sorta' touch upon in some other places on my own website here. And also, once again, the important (and dangerous) thing here is that: Even if you do not believe any of this, THEY do! And may even be more prevalent then even I initially had realized, and in some cases, even quite obvious. (And even sometimes, goes pretty high up). I can pick right up on it, either way, myself. It's called discernment, and good judgement. (Because, I'm one of the good guys. Just sayin'). Although, this is just one of the many things Wilcock writes about in his book. (Although, he does somewhat focus on "The Cosmic Battle Between Good and Evil" thing, as what seems to be the primary theme of this particular book). And he does seem to have a certain interesting knack for tying allot of these things together...

Maybe, just maybe, it's all related in some way. Wouldn't that be a kick in the ass! (I mean, I can't explain how this all got here. No one really can). Some kind of (general) prison planet? May be...

Just some food for thought, in keeping with the subject matter. Whoa. (Pretty credible, I must say). Blows MY mind...

And some seemingly supporting videos, in keeping with the (Luciferian) Cosmic Good vs Evil thing Wilcock discusses in his book, that very well may explain allot of things, to which you can include (as I have also uncovered in my own research) some pretty dark stuff, like Human Trafficking, financial fraud, murder, psychological torture, abuse of power, sadistic (or masochistic) behavior, deceit, conspiracy, etc. Though, of course, everyone who participates in these things may not necessarily be part of some kind of Cabal or into Satanism, but just a serious asshole. Either way, as Wilcock (and many other experts in this field) explain, it still (by its very nature) often has some kind of deep spiritual or demonic influence in some way, whether you believe there really is some kind of dark (evil) spiritual world, or not...

Also, in my research (and what many others believe) there are some locations that seem to have more of a high degree of this kind of dark influence (often due to the particular actions of those who reside there) then other places, and the signs of this are pretty recognizable...

For instance (but not wanting to get too personal here) part of my reason (and my research) into the Demonic (although, not obsessively, because I recognize the possible danger in that) was not only because I just happened to live at the very same time, in the very same area in Maryland, where the Feds had traced the source of the 2001 Anthrax Attacks, when I then realized that I was being targeted by some extremely sick and dangerous, and even criminally insane individuals, who were also involved in some very serious crimes, that crossed state lines. (And I don't mean the Feds, generally speaking). 

And also, because of something that was said to me by someone, some years ago already, in regards to the psychology of, and how these particular criminally sadistic, psychological types operate; and because she also had told me that I was: "psychic and very smart". (Which were her EXACT words!) And she then proceeded to tell me what would happen. And, as I was informed, how extremely evil (lower then dogshit) individuals for instance (especially when a conspiracy is involved, to attempt to put you out of commission in some way, or to like use someone in an attempt to hurt you, and/or attempt to use that person in an attempt to provoke you, and/or in an attempt to fu*k up your life) quite often will use 3 primary tactics, as their secret weapon, that are usually attributed to the Demonic; because they are basically just cowards to begin with...

1. Deceit. 2. False Stories. 3. Slander. So, of course (being extremely intuitive to begin with) I would pick up on things when they happen, and recognize the signs; but being a sensible person by nature, I would also wait for something to be validated in some way (or sometimes even test it out) and then I would know (without a doubt) what I was intuitively picking up was right on, and the reason why those people were lying about me to a certain person, for example. Sometimes, I may not even know (at least not right away) exactly what the lie they told that person (that I supposedly said) was, but never-the-less, I could see the situation (in my mind's eye) as clearly as I am typing this right now. (And then, the physical validation, by the expression on a person's face, and/or an off the cuff remark, etc.) In other words, it would be like downloaded right into my mind, is the best I can describe it. (In the sense of being able to head tap a person, and yep, just like reading their mind). Of course, it would usually involve a girl, because I don't like guys! And, if through just simple common sense, for instance (knowing human nature and all, assessing the psychology of the area I'm living in, etc.) if I did not mention that girl to anyone, well, then there would have to be a reason why they would have lied to that girl to begin with, right? Common sense itself, would tell one that. (When you start putting two and two together, and things just don't seem to be adding up, for instance, regardless of anything else). Neither here nor there, but for my own documentation, edification, and in relation to some of the influence in writing the song itself, and just maybe you can relate (Na, I doubt it. I don't know, maybe) in this particular scenario, its at that point when you realize that she very well may have (unknowingly) mentioned me to like, the wrong kind of people. (And/or like, the wrong kind of people seemed to have picked up on it, when the poor girl just happens to innocently mention you to someone, for understandable reasons). Ya know, its like a kinda bad area to begin with, kinda' situation? (Uh, oh!) And if she is very attractive (and they believe your going to be attracted to her) well then, of course, jealousy comes right into play. And wallah! That's the person they would attempt to use in their deranged scheme (in their sick, twisted, criminal minds) in an attempt to hurt you (and to attempt to provoke, and/or get to you, or set you up; usually without the girl ever really knowing; as they will continue to work on her and lie to her in the meantime). Because, they want you to be really miserable, like they are. And it would provide them with allot of accomplices, if necessary. Especially, if it is (generally speaking) pretty much like the psychological profile of the area to begin with, and something is going on, in more ways then one...

Alright, I don't know where I am going with this (but it is somewhat in relation to the song itself) as I saw the scheme from the very beginning. It was like the download thing. Didn't hear voices (at least not yet in my life, thank God). Its more like a strong impression, and so clear, that its almost like a voice did whisper it in your ear, but there was no voice. Same thing with individuals, like Allison Dubois for instance, who is a Psychic-Medium. (Although, she may also sometimes see things like house numbers and the like, when assisting decent people within law enforcement, from what I understand). And then, its like all of a sudden, God gives you discernment about the whole situation. (Even though, you may not be particularly very religious; but I have heard it said, it doesn't necessarily matter, because God looks at the heart, not necessarily if one is religious. He knows what is really in a person's heart, like when one who has this kind of gift, for lack of a better word, head taps people; you are sorta like given almost like that same insight. But with it, comes great responsibility. That's why I also say, God looks at the heart, because he knows who he can trust, so some people have greater insight then others. And it could also just be where someone's mind, or soul, or whatever you want to call it, is functioning at a higher power or somethin', and God really doesn't come into play at all. Except, the discernment thing. That I cannot explain, because I am only human).

But when that happens, you see motive. And, you sometimes even see the scheme before it even happens! (Or, while it is happening. Or, after it happens). You see what's in the heart of the individuals involved. And you freakin' read their sick, psychopath freakin' mind!!! It can almost be compared to seeing a movie right in front of your eyes. (Or more like, in your mind). Its incredible, and it often blows my own mind! Just sayin'. There is no psychological profiler that even comes close. (Although, I know there are others who have these same experiences, especially among the psychic profilers; with some even having been scientifically verified). If I said anything else, I'd be lying... 

But anyway, where am I going with this? Oh, yea. The Demonic thing. (And the song). And I am already giving much more away then I want, because I know what's goin' on, and because I also know there are crimes being committed here, and whose involved, without even knowing most of the people who are involved, and I can sorta' see what the crime, and crimes are. (And that the individuals involved are extremely dangerous, in more ways then one). Oh yea, it gets better. (Its always the way). Ohhh, boy. So let's just leave it with this...

Yea, the demonic thing. And I mention the Demonic thing, because of the Psychological Profiler (discernment) thing. As with the anthrax attacks, I get that same feeling that it is demonic in nature, at its very core, and the people involved in the conspiracy are EXTREMELY evil, and dangerous. (Here's a clue, so as to not tip off the bad guys). In the Exorcist movie, Father Meron says to Father Damian, his assistant, in relation to the person possessed: "DO NOT ENGAGE IT IN CONVERSATION!!! It CANNOT be trusted, AT ALL!!! It has a demon. Duh!" (Okay, the 'duh' part was just me attempting to be humorous). And of course, do not discuss things in relation to your personal life, reveal your feelings, etc. to someone who doesn't really have your best interests at heart to begin with (or who may even seek your demise, for whatever reason) and who may very well, use it against you in some way, is what I am trying to say. (And, that's how dark the situation may really be). But that's always been my own rule of thumb, anyway. (You always have to access the situation wisely, and if you need to confide in someone, it has to be someone you can definitely trust, without a shadow of a doubt; especially in these strange, unusual times we are currently living in, and in light of whatever situation one may find oneself). So, to tie this all together myself, I guess, it can very well be compared to the cosmic battle between good and evil thing. In other words: Whatever is negative, and causes one stress, pain, and suffering for instance, I would think, cannot be of God. But whatever is positive, and brings fulfillment to one's life and helps you to achieve your full potential, and destiny, would be; and what the Universe (if you will) really wants for you. (If one is at least a decent person, that is). I would think, anyway. (And still learning myself). But I guess, that's pretty much it, in a nutshell. Yea, I see the bad guys reading this, and his wheels; the wheels in their devious, sick minds are turnin' accordingly. They're ALWAYS scheming. Its incredible. I see it so clear. Whew...

(Its big, man). Enough said. But I'm gonna' take a chance and keep this here for now. Damn. No pun intended...

Wow, was that deep! Once again, note to self: Try not to drink and blog! I'm still gonna' leave it for now though, for some reason. That I don't even freakin' fully understand! (Or maybe, I do). Way too much info though. (God willing, in the future, much shorter, and much less personal). But yea, these kind of books can do that to you. (At least, that's the effect it has on me. May effect different people in different ways, I don't know. But yea, its that intense). Weird. And speaking of weird, might as well now check out the following videos. O.M.G.

I know people are generally not this deep. At least, not in America. In fact, I think this is probably going to be the last song that is going to be this intense. Just had to get it off my chest, I guess. Sorta' like therapy...

The New Era - A Christmas Story (Reprise) 

Remixed version of 'A Christmas Story' set to images...

The audio file quality used in this music video was recorded in 24 bit. (Whether or not YouTube alters that in some way, with the upload of the music audio wav file that I used, I am not sure at this time). Just to provide a comparison, for interest's sake, if you didn't already know: CD's are recorded using 16 bit technology. But for online (or mobile phone) streaming, most music audio files are usually 16 or 24 bit respectively...

Hopefully, this track will be available for download (and streaming) at online merchants and streaming services like Amazon, iTunes/Apple Music, and Spotify, by my online music distributor before long...

Note: While I am on this, I have noticed that THERE ARE certain tracks assigned to my Apple Music and Spotify artist profiles, in particular, that do not belong to me. From what I understand, this does happen from time to time (for whatever reason) with other Indie artists as well, and has happened to me before; with those particular tracks (in the past) having been eventually removed. However, some of these tracks do seem to be a bit strange, and should obviously appear to be somewhat out of place to begin with, especially if you happen to be familiar with my music, and my story. (No pun intended).

Just mentioning this, to prevent any confusion there (if one happens to see this in the future for instance) as I am currently working with Apple and Spotify to have these (particular, and currently out of place) tracks removed; but keeping my fingers crossed...

By the way, check this out. Cool... 

YouTube Mix - The New Era - A Christmas Story (Reprise)

The Tragic Loss of John Lennon - 40 years later... 

I can soo relate to this song. (In relation to the passing of my close friend John Sullivan, for instance, as I mentioned in a previous post). Can't believe though, that it is 40 years already, since the death of John Lennon; and the initial shock many of us felt regarding a level of evil and insanity (in this country) we hadn't quite seen before. (At least, not since maybe, the bizarre events surrounding the assassinations of John and Bobby Kennedy). So much so, that it even made some of us consider (even if it was like, years later) that maybe there was something more to it, and insidious, lurking somewhere within the infrastructure (and DNA of a nation that seemed to have begun to lose its innocence) if you will.

(As we had seen, with all the senseless mass shootings in this country some years later, for instance; seemingly influenced by an often extremely corrupt, incredibly selfish and callous, and even criminally insane leadership, and establishment, that ostensibly had set the tone for what had become a violent nation, that seemed to always be looking to provoke, and/or get involved, in the next war).

I would therefore, like to dedicate this post to the memory of one of the greatest (and one of the most influential) musical legends (and one of the most brilliant, unconventional philosophers) who ever lived...

Yea, I've heard this story before, that Mark David Chapman (the killer of John Lennon) was into some kind of satanic cult or somethin'; at least at some point in his life. Put this here, just for some food for thought, I guess. (I mean, it makes ME wonder). Because, let's face it, people just don't go around doing such unspeakably sick, senseless, and evil sh*t like what he did, without something pretty crazy and deep going on inside their minds, one way or another. Maybe its all related in some way, on some kind of 'Rosemary's Baby' kind of level, I don't really know at this time. But (lets just say) it wouldn't surprise me. It can be a pretty dark world out there, for sure; although the guy did seem to have some things goin' for him. I mean, he was supposedly happily married, etc. It wasn't like he was some kind of homeless man on the streets, or the like. (And I am definitely not deriding the homeless, of course. God forbid. But you get the point). In other words, he did have a choice, regardless. (As, I have also heard it said, that there ARE people who have actually made a pact with the Devil, or sold their soul to the Devil, in exchange for fame and fortune, or for money or power, and the like, but it usually, eventually at least, ends in destruction, because the Devil, as it is said, is, well, evil!) Nobody forced Chapman to do what he did. He seemed to do it willingly. Why? Was something else goin' on, that he never really admitted, for some reason? I mean, one thing is for sure, he IS one crazy motherf*cker. One way or the other. (And, is most likely, not an honest person to begin with). No doubt about that one...

Couldn't really find a better video (at this time) in relation to what has become known as: 'The Abbey Road Medley', but definitely think it couldn't be more appropriate for this blog post, and in relation to the 40th anniversary of the passing of John Lennon. In fact, I can still remember listening to a radio station back in New York, when all this was going down, where they dedicated about 3 days in memory of John, and the events that had just recently transpired, that I still have on cassette tape, where you can hear the disc jockey getting all choked up when introducing the above track...

The New Era - A Children's Song / Moonlight Slumbers (Video II) 

                                    Through the Eyes of a Child 
                                                          -Pamela Penta 
Look at the world through the eyes of a child As if everything you see is new Take wonder in the rising sun In the grass covered with dew Watch the morning birds Waking up and taking flight Finding food for their young Who are hungry from the night Watch the flowers reaching up To catch the morning sun 

Take rejoice in your life A new day has begun!! Watch the world around As you go thru each day Smile at a stranger Help someone along the way Be grateful for each breath you take Give someone a helping hand Smell the roses along your way Feel your toes in the sand Experience all that is around you Don't live with blinders on Let go of all that is burdening you And in the end, you'll have won.

A cinematic like conception, musically and visually inspired by the poetry and simple wisdom embedded in the enchanting stories of some of those fairy tales, that seem to have the ability to make us dream, and bring us back to a more innocent age... 

Some of the music in this track was initially inspired by a cassette tape that I had purchased some time ago, of various Christmas compositions written for children by Mozart; but the title of this piece was also somewhat inspired by some of the lyrics in the Surf's Up track by The Beach Boys...

The New Era - Zion 

Many creative individuals have a dream of that special place, where everything is beautiful and peaceful. Free from violence, war, evil, and lies. And all the other negative stuff that is quite often associated with those bad things, along with the bad people who usually cause them. Where justice and compassion rules. And where decent people can live out their dreams, unhindered. A place that you can call your own, if you will. John Lennon coined a phrase for that imaginary place as: "Nutopia". (You can call it whatever you like). I like to call it: "Zion". Which in reality, actually began with a vision originating with the jewish people, from a long time ago. 

Websters definition of 'Zion' is this: "The ideal nation or society envisaged by Judaism. 2: Heaven. 3: Utopia." This song started out with the chords for the chorus composed on the guitar, over 20 years ago already! I sort of developed the idea for the tune from there. And finally decided to brush it off (take it from the archives) and finish the song; which I decided to put on the: 'And Then, Winter Came' EP...

The final completion, and the lyrics to this track, were also influenced by that somewhat brief period of time when I visited a Jewish Community Center back in Maryland called: Beth Shalom, and which I mention in the 'Its A Feeling' blog post, where I learned about Kabbalah, the hebrew language, and Judaism, from the Rabbi there, as I was searching for answers, and the meaning of life; and in rememberance of the time I was invited to spend Passover with some of the attendees of the center.

It was a mystical experience (of Hope) in a very unusual place, during a very unusual time. And now, facing another very unusual time, which caused me to finally create a music video of the song, as it seems there are certain similarities of events, in a country, that has seemingly (and even deliberately, in some cases) lost its way...

The New Era - Its a Feeling 

"I believe in intuition and inspiration... I sometimes feel that I am right, even when I don't know that I am."  -Albert Einstein 

Just another track from: 'The Walkersville Sessions' album, released back in Jan. 2009. Just another song that I somewhat inadvertently tried to experiment with, as best I could, using one of the music video service sites. Yea, I have to admit, some of the final results kinda' makes me cringe, as do some of the lyrics (which were written sorta' like 'tongue in cheek' to begin with, and during that time period while living in Maryland). But (even though I am something of a perfectionist) that's how you learn, I guess, if nothing else... 

I was also sorta' like on a certain time frame schedule, as I tried to coordinate the release of the album with the online distributor, so I really couldn't go back and change some of the lyrics for instance, or experiment too much with the track at that time. Once its assigned an ISRC code by the Distributor/Publisher for instance, that's it, you can't make any changes... 

I kinda like let it ride, to never-the-less see the results of what the final product would turn out to be. (Like an artist using a canvas). And to then, just sorta like forget about it. Almost like throwing dice. Yea, ya' see, I've also become something of a student of psychology, for various reasons, and in certain ways; also, because of the fact that I just happen to be extremely intuitive and all. (Can't help really being that way. It seems to be, just the way I am). I pick up on EVERYTHING! (Like sonar). In other words, I pick-up on how things may be interpreted, whether those interpretations are either (maybe even) deliberately wrong, or right. I know how different (and certain) people think. (And am a great judge of character). Ohh, yeaa. But that's sorta' besides the point. (I mostly just mention it, because you have that intuition part in the lyrics and all. Not sure where I was really going with that to begin with). In other words, the track was basically, kinda' like, just a snapshot in time. I like to document certain things in my life, but at the same time, do get a little nervous about getting too personal, because I know there are (unfortunately) allot of crazy people out there. (And the U.S. has become pretty crazy). So, I do see the benefits of abstract lyric writing, sorta like how the group 'Yes' used to write. (Even with some of these blog posts for instance, I get somehwat nervous; also depending on the particular area I may happen to find myself. Not to even mention the fact, that I was a Whistleblower and all). But anyway... 

The reference to God, and the like, in that certain section of the lyrics, was sorta' influenced by things related to (during a rather short period of time) attending a Jewish Community Center - that also had something of a Synagogue (or like a Jewish Chapel, if you will) with an Ark in it. This was after a dream I had of talking to a Rabbi, which I really still don't fully understand. But there he was, when I decided to kinda' test the dream, and walked in! (I don't read too much into it though). Did sometimes attend some of the services though, and would even sometimes go in and pray before the Ark in solitude. Not particularly very religious though. Just kinda' like wanted to know: "What does it all mean?!" Just like the current demo version of the track: Sweet Madonna* - which is really a throwback to a time, when I was a kid, and my musician friend Dave had converted to Catholicism, and we were invited to play guitar for a Charismatic religious group; which we would do sometimes, and then were invited by a bunch of girls to attend a weekly rosary meeting. And then, revamping the lyrics many years later, when I visited the National Shrine Grotto of Lourdes in Emmitsburg, Maryland; sorta like reminiscing of that time in my life. (The girls were really sweet, and very pretty, I have to say). Also, thought I could turn it into like an interesting  Disney type, animation, lyrical image, of like fairyland or somethin'... 

You see, back then, after Dave talked to me about the Bible and all (and still somewhat naive) I thought I had found the meaning to life; and being the type of person that I am, I like read the Bible from cover to cover, probably twice! So, I know allot of these guys are full of shit, when they try to interpret it to fit their own agenda and all. (So this track, is one of those songs from the album, also because of some of the things I was going thru at the time, in a very unusual place to begin with, like the 'Sweet Madonna' demo track* - recorded around the same time period, was just a reflection of that spiritual searching, if you will, for a rather short period of time, for meaning, and answers). 

But anyway, getting back to my point, yea, trying to fit that God part into the lyrics, within a certain number of bars, etc. was definitely a challenge, and as I said, kinda' makes me cringe when I listen back to it. Oh, well... 

With all that being said, I do have to say (like with Eastern Mysticism, and Kabbalah, for example) some of the learning and influences do kinda' remain with you, even if it is just for a certain period of time... 

*The original version of the song: 'Sweet Madonna' is posted to the Blog here on April 21st, 2018 at about 23min and 23secs into the live video. See below for the current demo version of the track, with the revamped lyrics mentioned above...
