Maybe someday when I replace all the recording equipment I sold off a few years back I can finally finish this demo. I'll have to completely re-record it, but still.
I wrote this little ditty in 2009 under less tumultuous socio-political times. But its message of unity and the overcoming of differences and the celebration of the fact that we’re all here, human and alive, is timeless. And timely on a day like today.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
It’s that special time of year
We should gather with each other despite our fears
We’ll break bread and dine with wine
And discover there’s no trouble and we’re just fine
We are all of the same blood
So it’s silly to throw punches instead of hugs
Peace is not (just) for the naive
We should be wearing our compassion upon our sleeves
So let’s celebrate today
And be grateful that we all have a voice to say
That we’re thankful for our lives
And we’re laughing, dancing, singing and giving high fives

Saint Ruckus is the umbrella project name for a few different solo music projects that I consolidated together. It's all one-man-band, producer, self-engineered stuff by me at home in my la-bor-a-tory. This is an anthology of some of the stuff I've done over the years, going back to 2007 up until around 2009 or so. Mostly [...]

Here are the lyrics for a little ditty I wrote and recorded a little over five years ago for my 2009 demo LP Bridging the Disconnect. Given its subject matter and the social unrest that has plagued our society of late, I’d say its message is rather timely. To listen to the song just click on the title. [...]
