Umm Shakespeare...what's a Heathen?

Also, while your at it...explain what a" Heathenz Muzik Crew" iz Homeboy?

These are the two questions that we get most often when we're out and about. Many people have preconceived notions about what we mean when we say "Heathen" and mostly we enjoy pointing and laughing at them when they get it wrong. Now we see the need for some clarity and after several (mAAAAd) guinness' pints and a few (HELLA) shots of Jack [ and stuff ]....we came up with THIS ( we think)!

tHe HeAtHeN dEmAndMenTz ;)

I. Thou shalt be not a poseur: Do you and love what you do. Own your imperfections and use them as weapons. II. Thou shalt pop thy tag: Heathenz refuse to be boxed into any one genre, label or category. Heathenz are free to create whatever they want, however they want. We love to mix and blend and twist music into different shapes...the only rule is that it must be dope! III. Thou shalt not hate: Haterz are the lowest form of lifeform in the known universe. There's only two types of people in this world, Haterz and Creators. Haters can't create so they criticize, they attack $%!7 that's over their simple little heads. Creators love to see another doing well, it inspired them to do the same. IV. Thou shalt live your life to fullest:There's a difference between living your life and breathing to death. Heathenz savor every second and seek to live life at its maximum. IV. Thou shalt question authority, and then beat it into submission while it's distracted V. Thou shalt be fresh till death: Heathenz don't do stale or lame, not in style, music or thought. Heathenz come dope and original, or not all.

Inside the writers studio: "Lonely PPL" w/ commentary Pt 1

Normally I dont say #$#$ when it comes to my creative process or my approach to writing songs. I'm a private person by nature (and a musician?! go figure) in fact those who know me best sometimes wonder if they know me at all, but i digress. Im going to attempt to explain how I write my songs and give y'all a sneak peak into how we do things round here. Those who know me will tell you that I love The Beatles, As songwriters, These guys are easily some of the best all time. Anyway, the song that Im recording "Lonely PPL" is an homage/shout-out to one of my favorite Beatles' songs, "All the Lonely People." I feel like it is a gorgeous song and if you've never heard it...google that @&*! I mean I could post a link...but what?! Ghozt 'sposed to everything? Anyway, my song deals with the same themes loneliness, detachment-in-a-connected-world, the secret mental life vs public image, angst...These are some of my favorite things to write about because these are things that people hate to talk about.So the challenge that I always have as a writer, is that I have to be ill enough to get people to listen to $#!& they refuse to talk about. Luckily, Im that ILL ;) (Somewhere BMG just hit the **RAGING EGO BUTTON**) Anyway below are the raw lyrics with commentary. "Lonely PPL" El-en-or Riggins lives by her dolo/in a crowd peope she still feeling solo/ she smell like coco, chanel her manolos/ copped for the high high, she feel low low/ so she like why try/ better get loco, turn up the mojo and shake it like a go go find her some wise guys n kick it like dojo now here come the oh no part no yoko wit no supervision, no future vision, should she cross her fingeR cross her fingerR superstition? she feel unclean even as she glisten/ too bad you cant shampoo that condition she puts on her mask as she leaves for the door/ the one, even she dont believe anymore so young so dumb, so comfortably numb/ running from the person she cant be anymore The name Elenor Riggins is a play on Elenor Rigby which is a name that appears in the original song The personality (if that makes sense) of the girl is based on a girl that i work with, who's lost...but she's functionally lost so it's hard for people to tell but if you're paying attention... she's a broken toy just like that rest of us my fav lines are "in a crowd of people she still feeling solo" and "too bad you cant shampoo that condition". You see girls like this everyday Hair: AWESOME, make-up: STELLAR, body: BANGIN spirit: DYING BY THE SECOND. Thats the picture I'm trying to paint
