Smells Like Green started in the spring of 2007 as an experimental jam band. After several recording sessions an unmarketable CD was circulated in the winter of 2007. Spring 2008 found Smells Like Green traveling in a new darker industrial/experimental/rock style direction. Several demo versions of a concept album have been written, and most had been released. The concept album in question was "Taboo;" a record about the darker side of love and sex, ranging in emotion from lust to love to jealousy, control and even hatred. With the album there was a short remix record of Bside tracks called "A Bitter Blackhole Bitch Remixes." The two albums have been pulled back for remastering and rerecording sessions. From that experience with writing, recording mixing and mastering all by myself I had moved onto a more ambitious and darker project. A manifestation of all of my inner demons called "The Suicide Machine Anthems." The recording process was yet another series of learning experiences. From it came a dual disc length mega record released to Itunes (US, Mexico, Japan, UK, European Union), Napster, Rhapsody, and Zune. Following the release of "The Suicide Machine Anthems," was yet another 12 track B-side/remix record called "Cold, Quiet and Distorted," also available on the internet. Followed by yet another full length album called "The Wanderer(s)" which represented a current state of the bands sole creator. The future holds tours and shows to promote the records as well as remastering sessions, re-releases, and all new material. Stay tuned.

Let's be realistic, I only left because the Netherlands, being a Western country, are considered a better opportunity for higher education.
Learning languages is something people just do around here; it's part of the school curriculum. You can't travel for more than a few hours without ending up in another country and in need of speaking a foreign language.. so there.
I do think people whose mother tongue is English automatically have the privilege to not need to learn much more than that. Surely it's useful for travelers and certain jobs, but still..
It allows me to unleash my inner literature/language/logic-freak, I went to lots of private classes in my high school years. Haha.
As for the thesis, it'll be reduced to a super simple document with a fixed target group. It will hardly be a reasonable, reliable work.
Here comes the catch: it's much, much more limited than that. And it has to be for free.
Nah, I already submitted a 40-page proposal so I have an idea in which direction I am to go, but nonetheless, the client will hardly get anything out of this.
