The Vanilla World View is, in a way, a religion that's not a religion, a belief system that does not depend on jargon. The book, or manifesto, also entitled The Vanilla World View, spells out this belief system and unravels some of the "unanswerable questions" that befuddle so many of us .

The Fifth Wave: A Prelude

The Fifth Wave is about to launch.....in the next few days I will be posting the first song, "Listen To My Whisper" -- after I iron a few kinks out. Though it will be the first publicly posted song, it's actually the second -- "The Bridges That Lead To You" is too low-key and unusual to be a lead-off song, so I'm holding it back.

"Listen To My Whisper" in a beta-beta form can be found on Soundclick, if you simply can't wait. A rap/dance/pop whirligig, the thing by its very audacity will probably garner some attention.

Plans for the Fifth Wave include "Back To San Francisco", a multi-part track that will feature some strange, technical pyrotechnics, as well as an anthem to be called "Love Ascension"......the songs in general will be more low-key, but much more elaborate in construction, with more special effects. There will be two exceptions: "Listen To My Whisper", which will replace "Unfold Me" on the DANCE IT FORWARD track lineup; and a yet-to-be-named track that will be a little experiment of mine.....

By the way, I'm glad I didn't hype the "#1 with a bullet" prediction for "Echo You" too strenuously.......my spirit superiors apparently decided to stop my impertinence, so they broke the MP3 charts site...and it's still broken, after well over three weeks! I can take the hint.......maybe I was supposed to wait until the start of the Fifth Wave.

Upcoming Bits And Pieces

Two items of note:

1. The Fifth Wave will begin soon with "The Bridges That Lead To You", a song that will highlight a few evolutions my sound has taken. The direction will be a bit different, as always. "same old same old" doesn't apply here.....'what the hell is that?" is more my style.....

2. In my effort to out-hype Hype itself, I'll release "Echo You" soon...you know, the track that I predicted will reach #1 in the Web charts within 60 days.....which won't be easy, considering that the #1 song is up in the stratosphere. We'll see......

Dance It Forward: The CD


Soon the Dance It Forward CD will be ready to go with Amazon. To help give it a little boost I am going to release a new song, entitled "Echo You", that I think may go all the way to #1. Remember the old baseball story about Babe Ruth's pointing to the bleachers and saying he would hit a home run "there", and then doing that very thing? To show you the force of one human will, I am going to do the same thing....with a single song. Check back for launch time.....

To keep things in perpective, the songs on this dance CD are all linear, of course, and they all amplify certain elements of my theory of Destiny Paths. As I said, I want to redefine the purpose of music, bring back the importance of the message without spoiling the fun."Dance It Forward"? The point here is that two mirroring energy generators are better than one, that dancing/living/loving is a passionate manifestation of positive energy, of Love energy -- be it Vanilla, Cinnamon, or Ginger. The purpose of "soul mates" is to catalyze our spiritual development by providing a echo-mirror energy boost through a kindred soul, through someone with whom you have had contact many times over past lifetimes, souls whom you touch, energize, and then ascend......

The CD will contain 11 tracks.....9 full-scale dance numbers, and 2 chill-out intermezzos. Those two, "Cinnamon Talk" and "Vanilla Love", are obviously about the two Love energies...one is a chill-out bossa nova tour de force, and was a whole lot of fun to put together. You'll find a lot better harmonizing here as well. One song, "Learning The Dance", is actually a three-song medley......

The past six months have been draining for me, it's true, but 2004 isn't exactly an ordinary year.....and you'll find out why soon enough.....for that matter, so will I......
