Many people consider the 1970's the best decade for music, with 1977 commonly considered the best year in music history. The early 70's is highlighted with hard rock legends such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and Deep Purple, with the late 70's featuring the punk movement that began in the 60's with The Velvet Underground, MC5, and The Stooges then blossomed in 1977 with the likes of Ramones, The Clash, and The Sex Pistols. There was the glam rock of David Bowie & T. Rex, progressive rock such as King Crimson, the birth of New Age with Blondie & Talking Heads, power pop such as Big Star & Badfinger, and a band from Louisiana called The Residents devised their own category. Now in 2012, even the mainstream pop and disco of the 70's sound great.

A love story plus social commentary that questions: Should work dictate happiness, should happiness be defined by currency, is getting rich the only means to be happy? Is it better to be like everybody else in order to generate more currency for the bank owners in the tops of the skyscrapers? Or, is it better to be individual and make history? The quest for love is natural; the quest for greed is not. 1979 was the best year for music.

NC-17 SOUNDTRAXXX is being edited, revised, and published. The literature content is gradually being removed for publication or  being transferred to the upcoming site: MHQ HEADQUARTERS. The music countdowns, however, shall remain here.

In the meantime, and why I haven't posted anything in a long time... I am proud to present, the first actual book publication, a dystopian epic: The Mansion Feel free to check it out; it is self-published and fully independent.

According to the plant and animal life on Earth, which eventually unfriends the human race amidst bold accusations coming from an oddly-shaped row of trees: the concepts of government, religion, and economics were fabricated by the same sources that devised such absurdity as Black Friday sales, fashionable bowling attire, expiration dates for vaginal lube, and marketing strategies to entice specifically targeted mayonnaise consumers … and these sources obviously did not originate on the Planet Earth. From Prohibition to the dystopian future plagued with revolution, animosity towards society, and farming hippos with growth hormones, characters such as Squirrel Abraham and Jimmers Waffles (raccoon) not only challenge the status quo, but also question the entire history that created it.

Compiling 30 Sections and 68 different themes and storylines, which explore topics ranging from concepts of customer service to victimless crimes to a town in West Virginia that repeatedly becomes a ghost town; and featuring guest appearances from the likes of seahorses, dragonflies, praying mantis, chickens, and raccoon, The Mansion chronicles the plight of the human race, where Primitive Man evolved into the species known as Homo Bowler, and set out to destroy the world in a quest for decorative plates, generic shoes, and non-dairy powdered creamer.
