Wow I gotta fucking tell you man...

You made the dream a reality.

You took it, you ran with it, you MADE IT happen.

God dang dude...

SMH.

I'm so proud of you and I feel like we've broken through a barrier heading upward.

It's surrounded by an essence of sexiness, sheer creative energy in other words.

I feel it man... I really feel it.

You know what to do... you know how to do it.

You've done it.

Thanks Annie!
I was very pleased with how it all came out. To know as little as I do
about the video stuff, it feels like a huge accomplishment. Can't wait
until I get good at it!

Your video gave me an idea.

I don't want to share it publicly though...

OK, the story...
About 12 or 13 years ago I read an article, blog-post, forum post, something.
Somewhere. No idea where. Not even sure if it was real life or a fantasy fiction
type thing, although at the time I was convinced it was real.

It was about a Master/Slave kink relationship. Told from the perspective of the
Slave. They were talking about how their Master required them to remove their
testicles. The Slave was hesitant but finally agreed. They went into graphic detail
on how this was done. At home. By a doctor friend of the Master. Sounded brutal.

The story went on to say that the Master then required the Slave to relinquish their
penis. This time, the Slave was more hesitant. Now, if I recall, the Master didn't allow
the Slave the time they needed to think it through. Instead, he drugged him and the
Slave woke up hours later, restrained. Both Master and doctor standing over him, the
Slave came-to and realized what had happened. His penis now tied-off, purple and
nearly dead. The pain was said to be overwhelming. Not sure how it "ended" but somehow
I remember it like the Slave just accepted it because it was ultimately to serve his
Master. 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nullo_(body_modification)


Sooooo, a couple nights ago I was working on the main synth line/riff in "dead for you"
and that memory popped up in my mind. Thinking, just how badly broken a person
would have to be to not only mutilate their body [most people do it willingly] but also
to alter a very important bodily function AND bring an end to sexual pleasure. Well, I mean
conventional sexual pleasure. All in service to another. Another whom you view as far more
important and/or worthy than yourself. And that got me thinkin'.

How many "normal" people in "normal" relationships do just that, everyday, to one extent
or another? In happens in marriages, sometimes it's the wife - sometimes, the husband.

For whatever reason, to whatever degree, erasing themselves in order to serve another.
To submit. Co-dependency. Intense forms of neurotic attachment. It's sort of like it's own
form of BDSM. Only without the leather and ropes. And that also got me thinkin'.... Just how
much of that whole scene is "organic". Or Healthy? Sure, embrace your inner freak, but
don't become a victim. Pain. Pleasure. That strangely wavering thin line. Why the need to
be punished? Not only in outwardly obvious kink-lationships but in regular everyday "normal"
life? Not to even mention the need/desire to dominate another. Especially in ways so extreme
like the Master/Slave thing ^^^ up there.

Not making any judgments here, just wondering where it all roots from. Some deeply felt
inadequacy? And this isn't to slam the BDSM types, it's more in line of a case study in general 
human behavior. Like the beginning of the video, all those "society" types, hobnobbing and 
schmoozing. It's all so fake. So empty. In my mind, with that clip, I was looking at them but
seeing the ghoulish faces of the Others from "They Live". So they're all walking around Slaves
to what Master? Status? Prestige? It's just laughable. How they'd condemn the BDSM types for
being freaks or weirdos but they're doing the SAME dance, just to different music.

Anyway, it was just a feeling of how some people are willing to kill themselves off while alive
just to please another. Needing that level of approval so badly that you'd do anything for it.

That was the thought behind the song. While the video does align with addressing that 
issue, it ended up being less harrowing, at least at first glance and on the surface.

I don't usually like to explain away artistic endeavors but I do like to tell the whole story.

TL;DR -- I like dem boobies!!1  <<<-- The Millennial synopsis for this post. ; )

Seeing as how we're both dudes, that would be one awkward scenario.
How's about a fist bump instead? An across-the-room fist bump.

Safe distancing and all.

I truly believe that couples who indulge in a bit of controlled pain and suffering probably enjoy a more healthy relationship overall. I'd be willing to test out the theory with the right fella.

I can agree with that. And I'd only say it's a problem once it becomes
manipulative, non-consensual and/or violent.

Make No Sound - A poem by: Annie Stacie

Words abound but make no sound
Without an instrument to express them
Feelings that pound through silence astound
When surrounded by those who can sense them
No secret kept and all is open to the adept
Who without words still know them

Bro I'm so stoked and honored...

You know what, I felt this wave of creativity coming, but I had no idea how it would play out.

I wasn't sure what I was gonna be doing that was even creative, LOL!

Like I was thinking "What am I gonna be doing, painting??"

But this has taught me that stuff I've made in the past will come into use in the future and this is a perfect example.

It showed me that I've been doing the right thing and it's not about striving to create more (even though that's really great to do), I have already created a lot of stuff that can be used for other things.

Thanks again man.

Whew, I'm so glad it's finally done! 
Hopefully now I can get back to normal sleep hours!

    If our planet were to one day fall to the silent invasion and bloody
      conquest of an unknown force of foreign origin. “This Earth It Shall Burn”
      tells that story.

      Unfolding in a not-so-distant future setting, our world is taken over
      and forever changed by an invisible enemy. They had been watching
      us for millennia. Their contempt and disgust had been fueled by our 
      boundless inhumanity. The unfailing infliction of tragedy and catastrophe 
      upon our planet and fellow man. Our species had become unruly, spiteful     
      children. This was to be our new Parenting.

      Once the battle engaged, we were great in number. This was used
      against us. Famine, disease and war, however, was not enough to 
      remove our distasteful presence from this world. It was then that they 
      turned us against one another. This was by far the most effective 
      strategy in our complete and eternal demise.


      This album was written and recorded between 
      September 29, 2019 and May 3, 2020. 

      —This Earth It Shall Burn—

         ordo ab chao
         place of lost souls
         the veil between
         all the broken pieces
         scenes from a dying world
         and all things were still
         as the embers fade
         beginning of sorrows
         endless night
