The Altruistic Messiah™ ~ Ben Vandagriff / Blog

SAYING WHAT I WANT ~ RIGHT HERE & NOW !!!!!

BEN HAD BECAME A JACK OF ALL TRADES, AND A MASTER OF NONE. HIS PERSONAL MISMANAGEMENT IN SELF REPRESENTATION IS NOW CONSIDERED A SOMEWHAT - ALMOST LEGENDARY AS THE DE-FACTO STANDARD EXAMPLE OF HOW THINGS OF THIS NATURE SHOULD NEVER BE DONE, AT LEAST BY THOSE VERY FEW PEOPLE WHO . . . EVER ~ EVEN SEEMED TO NOTICE . . .

They say you can WISH in one hand ~ From the first percussive stick on stone beating out the rhythms of early man to the aleatory serial compositions of Karlheinz Stockhausen ~ & beyond, I have found inspiration everywhere in the reality that is life ~ & beyond ! In the words of our great American composer Charles Edward Ives "Music is life". It's hard to be blue when you even have access to an entire symphony orchestra anytime you wanna record a variation on the good old 12 bar blues !!!!! . . . . It's tough being me ~ but someone's gotta do it !!!!!! Together, we are sharing in a prototype of social engineering that is bringing different media's into a shared collective. One that is lending light to darkness ~ as my sisters & brothers, together we've created, as both a team & individuals ~ so many strides in mass communication that the exponential ramifications will echo throughout ~ not only our very lives but for all eternity ~ infinity ~ as victory is ours to share with every single living person ~ forevermore ! The multiple joining of our friends & fans on multiple sites creates the kind of community that promotes itself in it's very best light ~ with unity there is a multi-level cross promotional platform that brings out the greatest benefit to everyone involved in the commonwealth , also providing the camaraderie of our willing invitation to bring new friends into the fold ! The world will continue to come closer together ~ as we lead by example together with Peace ~ Love & Respect !!!!!!! In the schizophonetic statistical analysis of artistic achievement ~ there is often more than one point of view available at any given time . . . ... if we were to let history decide ~ we might not be around to let them know if they've got it all right or all wrong anyways . . . The way I hear it ~ it's different every single time ! So If I decide to butter someone up with flowery songs of praise ~ so be it ~ for I do tend to wear my emotions on my sleeve, so to speak. I really don't mean to affect people with any negative energy ~ but I do intend to cause a reaction ~ because in the long run, overall, I sincerely believe it is the way to create a positive shift in the balance of everything that is important in life. Now this is not to say if I had an unlimited budget ~ that I wouldn't go out and obtain the finest talent available ~ in order to enhance my vision ~ I think the London Symphony Orchestra would come in quite handy ~ as well as innumerable other highly trained & talented professional musicians, visual artists, actors, dancers, choreographers, film makers, writers, comedians, magicians, street performers etc., etc., you get the idea (I wonder if the Mormon Tabernacle Choir could pencil me in next Friday) as well as many of the unique talents I've found here on Moiko ! Anywayzzzzz ~ They say you can WISH in one hand ~ So you can call me Ben ~ & you are always welcome in my Ashram / Asylum !

Music is Living in Motion !

Music is Living in Motion !

By conceptual design I've successfully incorporated an obscure semi-random artificially intelligent element of transitional potential throughout every applicable aspect of my artistic creativity.

I am providing this optimal psychological communication, & therefore developing an ideal situational environment that will facilitate the sustained future transformational possibilities in relation to all of my musical compositions.

This is truly a new revelation!

I do this in order to allow the music to forever move forward , to refresh, to remain in transition, in perpetual motion, to organically grow, to become something that's always different from what it just was, to evolve beyond what it is now & to constantly change into what it eventually inevitably might someday become.

I am bringing the music to life !!!!!
