Art and Literature, Movies and TV / For the Sci-Fi book lovers
« on: July 05, 2012, 03:32:47 PM »
They arrived many centuries ago, wanting only to help us.

Mark is an average, if not even a little bit nerdy, teenage boy.  He does well in school, does extracurricular activities, has a good relationship with his parents.  Quiet and uneventful was the name of the game when it came to his life.  That was enough for him to be content for now.  That all changed the day that Tonya walked through his classroom door.  The minute he saw her, he knew his life would be different forever.  At the time he had no idea how different it would be.  There was no way he could have ever prepared for the changes that followed her entrance into his content life.

Today, Agent John Atash is filled with questions. What is the mystery of Christie's son Steve? Why are they here?  Why does the Government want to question him?  What is their involvement in all this secrecy? John Atash gets caught up in an immense coverup, but whose coverup is it?
With Chaos surrounding John, he struggles with his emotions.

As all of the satellites rain down back to earth, the great super powers of the world go to war, but is it their war after all?

Other Ambient (and related) Music / The Ancients awesome review:)
« on: December 10, 2010, 05:35:14 PM »
Thanks John for doing an awesome review of my album, The Ancients and keep up the awesme work..:

On his newest release, The Ancients, Darren Rogers weaves a musical tale of the “lost knowledge of Atlantis.” The story spills forth in four fairly long tracks, the shortest just shy of 10 minutes, for a little under an hour’s worth of calm, sighing, melodic music. Truth is, The Ancients doesn’t really need the ostensible theme to work. My first listens were made free of that context and I liked what I heard; no deeper sense or insight was gained through knowing Rogers’ narrative intent. The opener, “From the Stars,” is the longest track, a lush and graceful flow of soft chords with an undertone of approaching sadness. A very nice ambient work that stands on its own. Rogers appropriately layers some drama beneath his drifts on “Utopia Lost” and carries it easily into “Celestial Voices from the Heavens,” where the composer makes strong use of a vocal sample, coming like the voice of a lone Atlantean singing in prayer. To me, this track starts a bit uncertainly but levels off a few minutes in. Towards the end Rogers gives it a distinct spacemusic feel. I can’t decide if the closing/title track starts out with the sound of panicked voices–which would make sense if Rogers is ending his story with the ruin of Atlantis. It’s a little distracting but, like the track before, this one eventually smooths out on a bell-tone melody that gives way to starry, pensive pads.

All in all, The Ancients is a solid piece of work that hovers on the border between drifty ambient and deeper spacemusic. Well worth a listen.

Everything and Nothing / Which is it??
« on: November 25, 2010, 09:55:19 AM »
I have kind of switched gears from music to creative writing and was reading yesterday about one's craft in that do you do it for the fame and money or do you do it for the love of it???
If you do love your craft and look around at the other people that are doing it just for the fame and money, do you have despise for them??

Esp since our art is ever changing from what we use to know to new things, so would one continue writing for your craft even though you know maybe the art you love is dying???

I would love to hear from listeners too about what they think...

« on: November 07, 2010, 09:15:11 PM »
Just got finished watching yet another reality tv series called Married to Rock about the wives of rock stars(yes I know, why am I watching yet another mind numbing reality tv show. I don't know...just makes me go off and not have to think for a while hahahah. anyways), etc and just got me to thinking of that they should do one called, Married to Ambient. Would be very interesting to see what happens in the day to day life of being married to an ambient star:)....

Other Ambient (and related) Music / Alternate Realms 2 review
« on: May 19, 2010, 04:45:42 PM »
Darren Rogers' new deep-space sonic tour, The Alternate Realms 2, is packed with big, familiar, sweeping synthesizer arias built on warm, arcing pads woven through with a nice touch of drama and description. In fact, these tracks are so ethereal and transporting, I was totally thrown by the Spanish guitar-dominated track, "A Dreamer's Dream." The comparative weightiness of the guitar and the sharp edge of a wailing vocal that drops in later are a tough fit that just feels out of place here. Rogers is at his best with the soaring architecture of "The Crystal City" and the breathy, hypnotic wash of "The Soul's Regenesis." With the one exception, I quite like the worlds Rogers is showing me here, and I will be back to visit them often.

so please go check it out at:

thank you for your time:)
