At the start of February, I was approached by this new, but terrific site, The X-Files Truth Podcast, and one of the team members, Agent Summer, wanted to do a profile piece about the site. From there it evolved into a phone interview.
It was a fun experience, and they cover a lot of ground with me. They were even gracious enough to feature snippets of my original music. This traces the origin of how it all began with the Lexicon, our role with The X-Files: I Want To Believe Blu Ray, as well as the launch of a new web network project.
This isn’t a typical blog entry, as it doesn’t relate to The X-Files, nor does this deal with the meme explorations of past entries, but the events of the past week have compelled the following observations. Simply put, the tragic Earthquake and Tsunami disaster in Japan, as well as the Nuclear plant disasters, does leave one reflective. It’s difficult to escape the real world, or the harsh realities of life, it’s difficult to be altruistic, or inward thinking during periods such as this.
The following song has been running around in my mind over the last couple of days. While I have always been a fan of many Queen songs, this has always resonated with me, as I suspect it has for others, especially the last few lines. We do seem to be at a crossroads, especially since 2008, it does look like we have some choices to make as a collective society: will we treat each other far better than we have, and be our brother’s keeper? Or will be continue down destructive paths?
While I understand that the economy is bleak for many people, but if you can afford to do so, please give to the Red Cross, or any charity organizations that are sending relief to Japan.
