Throughout "ATBPO", we hear Night Ranger continuing their hot streak that kicked off with 2011's "Somewhere In California". Ten years on, and two highly acclaimed albums later, "High Road" and "Don't Let Up", the band's latest...

The Lyrics From Billys Forest Chapter 256

Where are we? Why? The tall elm and pine look the same. We can see how far we've traveled since the Covid lockdown because careers have changed, landscapes the same. Our only certainty was the arrival of Spring. We don't sound the same. I can't tell if we've been hardened like an old oak or weakened at the roots like a Lodge Pole Pine. It's fact that we're making up as we add on layers of fiction. Where are we? Why?

The Daily Mess Maybe I Wasn't

Breaking free of what other people think. Removing opinion and judgement from the journey by way of identifying with the truer self and not what's been painted into place. In the mid 90's called me an artist. 25 years later I'm not sure his assessment was true. Although I changed my life to become what needed to be lived up to, in looking over my shoulder the weirdness I was and still am doesn't convince me that all of this is about being what another person called me. And I'm not alone. Who...

Stream Thinking Using Your Words

July 29, 2021 We all have a lot to say. How we use our words can lead us toward troubled waters. Mainly because most of those receiving don’t meet your presence with acceptance.
