McCarthy (Vocals / Production), Zack Meyers (Production / instrumentation / vocals), Hen 'Hiwatt' Marshall (Production / engineering), Derrick Baseck (Percussion / synthesis), Bon Harris (Synthesis / production), Brad Apodaca (Synthesis / programming), Michael 'Prophei' Dietel (Production / programming), Anthony Baldino (Sound design / synthesis), Paul Barker (bass guitar), Christian Eigner (live drums), Jon Bates (Guest vocals / production / instrumentation), Mark Walk (Vocal production), Maria Lui.

Movie: After Earth

Well, watched “After Earth”, with Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith… it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either… the plot idea was cool, but I think the acting wasn’t very good, which is odd being that it’s Will Smith. Here’s the general description from
        “A crash landing leaves Kitai Raige and his father Cypher stranded on Earth, a millennium after events forced humanity’s escape. With Cypher injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help.”

Do I recommend..? I’d say skip it.

Not Enough!!

Well, I’m looking at my discography on Bandcamp, and I haven’t done enough! What I mean by that is… I would like there to be like 60 or 70 EPs/Albums there… As, some of you may know, I like being productive… and right now (yes I know I have one more single to release, and then the new album), I feel like I could do more… by the time I die I would like to see at least 40 albums in my discography, if not more (ideally more)! I feel like I’m getting started on my journey (I know…  I’ve been doing this since 1998-99… almost 20 years), there’s been a lot of time that I struggled between 1999–2004, and sometimes I look at that part of my life and wonder… how did I not know how to stay healthy..?; mentally, physically, and spiritually..? I spent a lot of time dealing with stupid bullshit! I cannot afford to do that anymore… Something I knew a long time ago; Life is very short! We have maybe 80 -100 years on this planet (100 if we’re super healthy, and diligent), and I cannot afford to struggle health-wise anymore! I am not going out with nothing to show for it!! So, on that note, I wanted to ask you, what are your thoughts on life? Are you doing enough?...or even, have you figured out what you want to do?

Movie: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows

Well, watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows, which is the second movie from the new TMNT movie franchise… it was ok! It was a throwback to the old cartoon with Beebop and Rocksteady, Casey Jones, April O’Neal, a return of The Shredder and The Foot Clan, and as well as Krang! (Baxter Stockman was in there too!) I liked it, it wasn’t the best… unfortunately it is not at all accurate to the original comic series, but it was still good fun! Basically, The Shredder and Krang try to take over the world… and you guessed it, the Turtles are there to stop it! Would I recommend..? If you are/were into the old TMNT cartoon, I would suggest checking this out… if you want something that is more closely related to the original comic, I suggest maybe take a pass!
