haven't got a clue.. NEW SONG..

I've got a new jazz blues ballad for you..



when I wrote out these quirky jazz chords I'd found sounded cool together, I counted the measures and it was 10.. that brought immediate memories of miles'/bill evans' famous "blue in green" which was a 10 measure bluesy jazz ballad.. my changes are totally different but the bluesy feeling is the same.. so I thought of zappa and knew it had to again be me.. outside the box.. that's where i love to be.. "smooth smokey vocals".. "trademark… Continue

INTERVIEW with nicky quick (rapster)





I first ran into Rapster on one of the OMD's... Gourd, it's been so long I can't even remember which one, though it was most likely the original MIXPOSURE... as happens with most of us, some kinda' conflict erupted, so he moved on (I know how that feels, I've done it myself more than a few times)... I always loved his jazz riffs, though, so have kept in contact when/where ever possible...… Continue

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
