The Stage of Dreams / Blog

Familiarity and Atmosphere

I remember the first three times I heard Appetite For Destruction by GNR, I didn't like it at ALL!!! My friends kept playing it though and after a while I absolutely loved it and needed to hear it over and over again. I also recall that a year before anyone else was talking about GNR a kid on my school bus was blasting the Appetite album and saying how incredibly cool it was and the rest of us said it sucked.

Isn't it funny how when something sounds different our first reaction is to dislike it. It takes time to get "it" and a lot of persistence if you're an artist doing anything out of the ordinary.

It's easy to get discouraged even if you are talented at what you do. I believe the most important thing besides having great music to play live is to set the atmosphere.That is to make people feel the music through the light colors, backdrops and stage props. It could be a total garage feel like Metallica, a stage with a few Light Bulbs hanging Down or a masterful grand entrance like Bon Jovi and other eighties bands use to pull off. The most important thing is to make it a show and make it memorable. This is the Stage of Dreams philosophy. When this band first comes out with phase 1 it's still going to be a show, not a massive production but even when we're opening for other bands it will still be something to talk about \m/

Sup Today Big Brother Lyrics

What sup Today Big Brother, Looking in Your Crystal Ball, What did you expect to see, In This Mental Asylum, Where I March, Out Of Time, You will put me back in Line, Well I don't need your guardian Angel Watching over me,

Drug laced Cigarettes, You take out of mouth, and I was feeling fine,

yeah I was Feeling Fine,

What sup Today Big Brother, Looking in Your Crystal Ball, What did you expect to see, In This Mental Asylum, Where I March, Out Of Time, You will put me back in Line, Well I don't need your guardian Angel Watching over me,

Take my Guns, I won't let go, better run cover and save your selves. and I was doin fine, Yeah I was doin fine.

Metal

One of the things I like most about metal music is that it's not a popularity contests, it doesn't matter how you look or even how you act. You could be the ugliest meanest person on the planet and as long as you are a master of the craft the fans of metal will support the music \m/ Another thing I like is that the sound is so powerful and a song made long ago has the same power it had the first time it was heard, some examples of this are Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, Screaming for Vengeance, Fast as a Shark, Holy Diver etc..... \m/ Even though metal is not so popular where I am located it does not bother me for it doesn't change the fact that metal is the frequency that resonates in my steel heart and soul.

Ominous Disguise Lyrics

I'm watching you destroying me, tearing down the walls of obsessed obscurity, sanctuary I shall find, You can't live without me, Darkness Falls and I'm Alone Staring terror down inside my home,

Words of silence Spoken to me Through your ominous disguise

How your thoughts betray You can't live without me Echoing cries blurring lines Falling from the edge I realized Encoded in my thoughts I saw through your eyes

Words of silence Spoken to me Through your ominous disguise

Exposed Revealed My thoughts you steal

Why I Chose Rock-N-Roll Crazy Nights

This Loudness Tune captures the vision of a venue filled to capacity with hard rockers banging their heads with fists in the air and singing along with Rock n Roll Crazy Nights You are the Heroes Tonight!! Thousands become 1 with the music and I can feel a crowds energy every time I listen. \m/ . . \m/

Funding Option 1

To make this happen I have to break away from conventional thinking, I can't be like the red coats fighting in lines out on the open battlefield. It's going to take a decent amount of cash to bring the stage of dreams to life, there's no doubt about that. My starting point for funding the stage of dreams is to create products and sell them at the local flea market (songs, t-shirts, stickers and anything else I can think of). If nothing else it will be a place to advertise.
