It's been a while since I wrote in one of these, and though it does not matter directly to me, perhaps it will at least make a difference to world and how it is influenced. Even if just a little, something small and insignificant can be worth it in an end result continually chaining to the next positive of our own opinion. Even if we are not here, we made a difference, and that is our immortality, simply what has yet to come as a result of our existence.
Anyway, I decided to write a philosophical status post on facebook of one of my opinions, thoughts and what ever else you want to classify it under. At first it seems like it is a bit negative, but give it some good thought and read deeply. It is meant to inspire, change and create a positive outcome in all our lives. In any case, here is yet another way to perceive the world from yet another set of eyes. =)
"In a world full of games you either win or lose. And if you chose not to play you simply get thrown away.
You know at one point friends, significant others, many forms of love and attraction used to be based on a persons personality, beauty (inside and out), compatibility, bonding etc... But nowadays it's about who plays the game better.
It's come to be what is more important than who you are is who you pretend to be that first moment we meet. It's about the game you play, not the person that we see and learn to love, respect and cherish.
Because in this material world of games and luxury, we wish for but one thing, instantaneous gratification. The problem with that is anything instantaneous dissipates just as quickly. Not only that but we live in a world of disposal. So of course if it does not catch our attention we dispose of it looking for the next gratifying thing.
But gratification is just but a emotion, solely dependent on us. And nothing about us or those around us lasts forever. But yet we take it out on everything external to us, just like our lack of self worth, respect, confidence and contentment.
When will we learn that the problem is not the world we live in, but us who is changing it into it's next evolutionary stage? But most of all, how we choose to perceive it. Most of life is not sentient, more importantly the laws of nature that bind us is not sentient, even if there is a sentient force that may or may not have created us and set these rules.
That means our ideals of the world and what it should be, how we should be, and how to act is all man made. It is our fault we take action, but it is also our fault to deem it negative or positive in our own opinions influencing our outcomes of both emotion and physical action/reaction.
So you see, by playing your endless games, you are only fooling yourselves and falling deeper into despair of happiness and contentment. "Be yourselves and stop playing a game, that is the only way you can learn to be happy, truly happy. Both with yourselves and others.""
In honor of my brother, who died two years ago on this day, here is a demo from my next album called "Wherever You May Be". I started writing it shortly after he died, and found some comfort in it. I tried to write it in a way that I think he would enjoy it.
I hadn't planned on sharing it yet as it's not finished, so this will only be available for streaming today.
I know that he looks down on you and smiles because you are alive, and pursuing what you feel most within your heart. The place is beautiful, and the song is gorgeous as well, even if sad at the same time.

I was recently informed that my "Shattered" EP, a collection of works to date, has been added to the heavy rotation list for an online radio station over at http://www.Bloodlitradio.com and the track "Set Me On Fire (Ashes To Ashes RMX) was actually featured as the 10th song on last Monday's 2 hour show! You can hear the 2 hour exclusive in it's entirety by heading over to the website and checking out the archive section. Otherwise, just listen to their 24/7 online stream and you may hear one of my songs!!!
I have also submitted the track "Set Me On Fire (Ashes To Ashes RMX) to a few other online radio stations now that I know it is radio worthy. Stations to look for it on are
I have finished the cover art for the new album "Rise + Fall", which you can see below.
Additionally, I have uploaded a new demo for everyone to check out called "From Shadows". You can stream it here or you can head over to https://soundcloud.com/flamesoficeofficial where you can stream it and download it for FREE!!!
Needless to say, things are progressing with the new album and I will (hopefully) have a release date set sometime in the near future along with an official track listing, so keep an eye out for more to come! In the meantime, enjoy the new track and artwork and let me know what you think of both!!!
VF user lalakingless was the 500th fan and got the COMPLETE Flames Of Ice Discography (plus some extra tracks never before released to make her ears bleed) as my way of saying thank you! Go stop by her page and congratulate her!!!
So, I got a series of songs (5 in total) sometime last year and I don't remember where from, but I have been listening to them this whole time thinking that they were NIN songs. One of them has become a favorite song of mine, but come to fin out they AREN'T NIN songs at all!!! As it turns out they are by a band called "Halo In Reverse" and if you're a NIN fan you NEED to check these guys out!!! Here's a link to that favorite song of mine. Tell me what you think... was it an understandable mistake???
