planet earth

well, this touring year is over.
it has been an amazing year!

some of the highlights, which some of you may have shared with me were:
the first tour back in january, which was my very first tour of my very first album, european opening for the great perfect circle!!!! our first and only headlining gig of europe was phenomenal, the album had only been out a month or two and the turn outs and enthusiasm were incredible !! thank you all for coming! (and i am sorry we didn’t make it to portugal ! one of my favorite countries in the world!!!! next year!)

my oh my the curiosa tour, the most romantic tour of the decade! dare to be romantic is what i say, and everyone on that tour does! wow, the euro summer festivals, and my decade reading festival anniversary! then their was the sweet hearts of the detroit brothers and sisters, the von bondies! and last but not least, the beauty of the finns of h.i.m.. which i believe to have been one of the most compatible musical unions of the year. that balance between heavy and romantic, strong et vulnerable, love, but metal. what a way to end the year. thank you everyone who made this possible and shared these moments with us.

now it feels like a free fall, no show to play, no band as my structure, just my unknown future.

i am most excited about getting working on my new material.
i have been feeling inspired in my brain as of late.
lot’s of lyric writing.
in the making of the last album, my biggest concern was to exercise my musicianship. my tools of choice were; bass and guitar and collaboration with the other musicians. for this next one, i am eager to expand in the areas i was avoiding last time; brain, lyrics and vocal experimentation.

i speak of following my gut a lot, which i do with pride and joy, but this time i will let my brain do some translating, for it to not be so abstract and more precise.

what i have learned in this last year, through touring these songs for the first time, is i am there to communicate, not only with the performance and sounds, but with words and my ideas.

by watching people in the audience and speaking to those after the show, the fire to connect has grown. as i have said many times, music is the great connector. it has a beautiful power to bring people together. so we are, and so our music will evolve and the message expand.

so this winter i will hibernate, and build sounds and atmospheres around these ideas i have. where as in the past, i would build ideas around sounds.

i wish you all happy holidays, and most of all a lot of hope for our new year.
2005, coming for us. full of opportunity and possibilities.
hope for the best, in love and health.

thank you for all your support in the past amazing year.
i made these sounds to share, and now i am.
thank you for listening.

I am doing a paper on beginner guitar and have been downloading information for the last hour. I donโ€™t know how I came across planet earth but I am glad I did. It has set me back a little because I have spent the last hour reading your archives. If you donโ€™t mind I would like to add you to my favorites so I can back again and read some more. Well I need to get back to beginner guitar. I am almost finished with it. Great job.

    I am a skeptic about sexual enhancement pills but not anymore. The first night I using Vicerex I made love to my girlfriend for an hour. I had an erection in the middle of the night when I woke up about 3 am. That morning I made love to my girlfriend for another hour and did not ejaculate at all. I am lovin it and I am going to buy much more. Thanks for the help. Works great for penis enhancement.

    laser cosmetic surgeryConstantly thinking about a particular facial feature or body part might be relieved by visiting a plastic surgeon for consultation on whether it is worthy to change. Cosmetic laser treatments can be expensive and are usually not covered by medical insurance.

  36. Time Freedom Fighter says:

    cosmetic surgery caCosmetic surgery can be very succesful, but it is not risk-free; even though laser cosmetic surgery poses fewer risks than invasive surgery. Altering ones appearance is a serious decision and should not be taken lightly; cosmetic surgery does not always work as expected.

  37. Time Freedom Fighter says:

    dr sal calabro cosmetic surgeryEven the most simplest procedures in cosmetic surgery can go awry, because it is dealing with your outside appearance. Cosmetic laser surgery is more commonly used in laser resurfacing of the skin, but it can also be used in other procedures.
