I think this is awesome promotion of creativity

~~

If anyone's ever read my story "Conquering Paradise" (in Opium print #1), you probably guessed that I love the bands Disturbed and Nine Inch Nails.

Look here at what NIN is up to.






I have been on a "strike" from MTV (and later, VH1) almost since inception and the reason is simple.

When I listen to music, I like moving through my own introspect. The band has given me the music, the feeling, and I like moving through my own visions. Frankly I also hate the sexism in many of the commercial videos too, but that's another complaint. To me, it's similar to watching a movie before reading a book. I know most people LOVED "The Shining," for example, but I didn't. My visuals were considerably different than that presented, so much that I couldn't enjoy the film. BUT I had the chance to see someone else's interpretation and it still didn't violate mine.

I don't know if that make sense at all, but I think this is a cool experiment and I look forward to seeing the various interpretations.

The Wicked Witch is taunting me.

And Disturbed (as well as many other groups) gave a concert for troops in Kuwait...

Of all things, I forgot my brand new camera for the last reading, but luckily someone DID have hers.

Soooo, here are a few shots from January's reading.

Some of the eager audience




Don Capone















Mike Young (yep, out of digital space - love a camera phone, yes?)















We had to skip February because:
a) I got bad flu
b) I got a new job
c) I moved
d) All of the above

Yes, it was a stressful yet exciting time.

OKAY
