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.
Don't be fooled into thinking that because Hootie & The Blowfish, Shania Twain, and Garth Brooks have the best-selling albums of the 90's, they are a representation of the entire decade. In fact, most of those albums are now available used on amazon for one penny...so much for standing up the test of time. For better or worse, the Seattle grunge scene took over rock formatted radio with Nirvana & Pearl Jam becoming the most popular. But, those thinking outside the box found a disturbing comfort in shoegaze, noise rock, and harsh experimentation coupled with traditional pop. Some of the darkest music in history actually came out in the 90's. Being as the stories on this site are based to the music, the stories within can delve into disturbing material as well. For many, this is a good thing.
