Facebook Sucks. But Suicide Sucks more.

I REALLY wanted to gripe about Facebook/the Internet and the way everyone abuses their freedom of expression and opinions about nonsense, using buzzwords to sound like they know what they’re talking about, “15 things you didn’t know about this useless celebrity”, “This idiot got arrested for this stupid shit”, “I’m battling depression – I’m a victim” and trendy links to more bullshit, but instead of ranting I’ll just write about it in this sentence I just finished.

On that note, Depression/Suicide is serious shit. Whether or not it’s a last ditch effort for attention, or simply an escape from the shackles of this MESSED up world, ultimately it’s the end of a life. Which is what crushes everyone who loves that person, regardless of why. Now, I’ve written songs that brush on this topic (”Neck Tie“, “The Good Life“) because admittedly at some points I’ve asked myself “What am I even doing here?” and “What have I ACTUALLY done for this world?”. But there’s usually a sense of Hope or Love that brings me back.

…and Segue… My friend and amazingly talented Photographer Suzanne Sagmeister recently asked me to get involved in a project of hers called “Conspiracy Of Hope” which I didn’t hesitate to hop on board with. Basically the idea is give Hope to people who have been affected by or dealt with Suicide. She is doing a photography project (which I believe I am a part of) and on MONDAY, August 18th, we’ll be recording a song with a bunch of Talented artists/Producers (think “Band-Aid”, We are the World, type thing). I’m really looking forward to that. This whole project is important and wonderfully moving & inspiring.

On a MUCH MUCH MUCH Brighter and unrelated note, I’ve received the Masters back for The DC Show’s Drinkognito album So I will be sending that off to get Manufactured shortly!! Wahoo! Thanks to DJ Nato in Edmonton at Up In Arms Studios for doing that!

GQ and I are also looking forward to the Podcast Interview/Performance with FYFC Lights Out Radio THIS Friday, August 15th. It’s NOT LIVE so go follow their page to be the first to hear it when it’s put up this weekend. Gonna be full of laughs and music!

Well… Here’s a Comic Book Version of the Doomsday Cartel (The DC Show) that I drew one night. DC Show
