I’m still here

This winter has been seriously brutal my friends. I’ve had to deal with a long-lasting cold, 2 middle ear infections, all while working. I’ve had to rest as much as I can to get back to normal, and I still don’t feel all that great. It’s been shitty to say the least.

Meanwhile, Scars Like These update:
Our bass player Chris quit the band, we recorded an amazing sounding new EP  called Defiled, and hired a new bassist, Vic DeVille (ex-Devil’s Grippe).

Copies of Defiled will be out soon.

2017

Hey friends,

Again like I always say, sorry for the slow updating. Life can be really busy sometimes. But it’s the end of the year so I should say something.
It was a year that had a lot of ups and downs (probably more downs), but it almost balances out as an okay year. This is for me of course, not for others who may have gone through way more hardships.
Well, the biggest highlight for me was auditioning and being hired into the band Scars Like These. This was big for me because prior to that I had only been in bands that never really got around to playing shows regularly. So this was my first year of playing shows regularly and I gotta say its a lot of fun. That was the big part of the year for me.
Nothing is peaches and cream of course. On the darker side of this year, I had lost some people who were very close to me. Now, and probably for the rest of my life, it will affect me.
There was a lot more to this year that I didn’t mention because it’s a little too personal, but I can pretty much sum it up as an okay year, just not great as how I felt about 2016.
As for Oblivion’s Realm 2018, I will continue to post reviews and Scars Like These updates. I hope for a new MoonCandle release, and a lot more movie reviews here.
My original 2018 plan was to post something every day, but I may save that for 2019.

Have a great rest of the year, my friends !

Movie Reviews on their way

Hello friends,

The original reason I made this blog site was for the purpose of putting together something that wasn’t Facebook — something that was more me, more personal whether people read it or not. Most of the postings on this blog as of late have been about the band I am in, Scars Like These. This blog was intended to be more than just about my band. I also have MoonCandle, as well as my previous bands Coffin Born, Terminal Frost, etc. I also made animated movies on 3D Movie Maker years ago. In recent years, they were uploaded onto YouTube and that was part of my inspiration to make this page. I wanted to share all of my art that has been unseen to most of the world.

I also write because I think it is something that I am good at. Unfortunately it can be very difficult to keep up with. To get back into the practice of writing regularly, I always feel writing a movie review is very helpful. Since I’ve opened this blog site, I’ve only had a few movie review entries. I don’t think it is enough. I need to post more. I got really in-depth reviews on Martin Scorsese films that I started after the Taxi Driver anniversary and have not yet finished. I have also planned a George Romero and Tobe Hooper In Memoriam. I even want to write something about Bill Paxton, but seriously with time going by faster and faster, it just continues to get difficult.

To get past all this and just start writing regularly again, I needed something I could write about with ease. On Friday Oct the 13th last week it hit me. My friend at work and I were talking about our favorite Friday the 13th movies… well shit damn! I own them all and haven’t watched them in years, so I popped them in when I got home from work. Friday afternoon till early Monday morning right before work… I finished all 12 films. Crazy, right? I must have no life.

F13-0

It was worth it.  I love all those movies even if there were some bad ones. It definitely made my weekend. It just felt right with Halloween getting closer and all.
So here it is everybody, get ready for it.  The next post onward (if not band-related) will be all the Friday movies reviewed in order.

Okay folks, check back very soon 🙂

SLT in Bensalem tomorrow

Hello my friends,

Scars Like These has a show tomorrow night in Bensalem, PA. I’ve actually never been up there. It’s also a far drive from where we are coming from. However, it should be a good time. We are playing with those guys Old Fezziwig, who were the main band when Terminal Frost did its one and only show. I bet the guy might remember me, and be all surprised to see me in Scars, haha. We will see. I’m definitely stoked. I like when we do shows on Saturday nights. Even better, I don’t even need to bring my kit except maybe a part or two.
What’s also odd is that between this show coming up and the last one, we haven’t practiced at all. But we fucking killed it the last 2 shows, and I am disappointed in not coming across any pictures or footage! Well except these pics with Frank from LowBrau Bastards, but where am I? D’oh!

So anyway, it’ll be fun. I’ll be putting more stuff up soon.

Not the greatest start to the new year

My friends,
Sorry I have not been able to update this regularly like I had preferred. Sadly, the year hasn’t gotten off to a great start for me.
First off, my band Terminal Frost is technically on hiatus. Ryan and I talked and agreed that the rent at the jam spot has been costly, and without a bass player to split with us we simply cannot continue to be unproductive.
I moved my drum set out of there. Now it is currently in a basement. I am officially without a band at the moment except I am trying to work on new MoonCandle and my debut solo album of Dave Debauchery.  My microphone isn’t sounding good on my new computer. It sounded perfect on the old one, but for my Windows 10 not so much.
So I bought a new microphone. Unfortunately I am missing a splitter cable to put it into the new computer. Weird, the microphone didn’t even come with the cable, it’s just “assumed” I already have one. Gotta love it.
All this nonsense is going on and I still continue to procrastinate. For that I am sorry.
I had good plans for this blog and they will still continue as long as I have the time. This blog isn’t just for my music updates, its also for my writings.
There were other things that were personal going on in January that I won’t get into. I will try my best to be more productive on this page.

Today’s the big day

Hey friends. Sorry for the lack of posts as of late. It’s been a busy (and depressing) time of year. But things are looking up now.
In my music history news today, myself and Ryan Beagle (my old guitarist from Imminent Death in 2005 who also did voices for some 3DMM movies of mine) is helping me pick up my drum set at Nick’s parents house and bringing it to his place. It’s been almost a year and a half since I’ve played on my actual drum set. I can’t wait to see it again and start this new band.
More news to come !

Boycott Valentine’s Day

Only in A-fucking-merica does such a stupid “holiday” exists that makes or breaks relationships. Be smart and independent – boycott relationships in general! They only make you weak and vulnerable. Live Laugh Love my ass. I say DIE CRY HATE, motherfuckers!!

Still a ghost to this world

I still go unnoticed. After all these years, no one really cares what I have to say about things. No one will ever read it. No one is going to care what I want to show the world through music. No one will ever listen to it.  People will leave you in life, because they only think about themselves. It’s all true. You will be left alone by yourself with no help and no love or support. You’re just a nobody and always will be, that is how the world is viewing me.
People will stay in their phony relationships with their “soul mate” and be weak the rest of their lives rotting away like the rest of the sheep. Go ahead, follow the herd, and be like everyone else. Follow the human traditions of “love and marriage”, and have children in an over-populated world where the internet already exists to ruin lives even further. Go ahead and rot your brains with video games and computers, and you’ll die even faster.I’ll still be a ghost, invisible to your pathetic existence with my pathetic existence.  I’ll be in the background dying while you’re having a ball living in excess with your success.

Approaching 30…

It’s getting close to the end of an era, but not really. I still feel like me, but I want to do a lot more. I think a good way to start off is to have people see these animated movies of mine I made in my glory days.

I may have been young and immature and a fan of b-rated horror movies, but you can see a lot of creativity reflected and what would be foreshadowed in my music and movie taste. I am very excited to present these films to all of you.
Each day I will post a movie in the order that they were released, and you will see a progression of a kid trying to make a funny/violent movie, to trying to be serious despite how silly all the characters look from this “90s children’s game”.

Well, anyway, more explanations of that when the time comes, but right now, please stay tuned… updates shall be prevalent…starting tomorrow…

Dave

Just a small preview of what you will see...

It’s gonna be a rough week

Work, work,and more work awaits while maintaining other issues. Trying to stay positive. It’s been good talking to some people lately who have been keeping me positive. If I get a little time this week, I wanna write some more from my short story collection called Tales of Death, and put some more movie reviews up. I’ve been watching a lot lately.
