Nikola Tesla

He gave us so much, and yet I think he would be both amazed and quite saddened by what this world has become. This is my favorite quote from him.



‘Nikola Tesla (10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was an American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.’


I find it hard to believe that so many have no idea about all the inventions he created, and what an impact it was on the world we now have. Among all of his inventions, most notably he gave us efficient AC motors, wireless, and the radio – and so much more.


Rock on Tesla! You were an example we should all try to follow!

Ok.. I keep going back to this song:

Live To Rise


Because it freaking rocks, and it was in a cool movie – The Avengers. I think it might be their best song yet, and they’ve been around for a long time, and put out a ton of cool songs.

Black Hole Sun

Which is about an interesting topic :)

…which I won’t go into here.


Rock on SoundGarden!

Last Chance to Dance

We are entering a new age, my friends. Stormy skies everywhere I look.



Standing on the edge of a moment, I hesitate to whisper. It’s too much, too fast and I’m not ready.



If I close my eyes will it last forever?



And the instant I open them again, will anything have changed?


Ray Stage


There… I’ve said way too much.

Winchester Rebels

Looking for a great rock band? Well here you go.

Winchester Rebels are awesome, and their latest album Warrior rocks!

‘WINCHESTER REBELS was formed in August of 2009 in Santa Barbara California. Former “The Awakend” frontman, Nick Hunt and “Sicker Than Others” Bassist, John Livergood, came together after about a year of talking and started putting together a sound that would echo great hard rock bands from the 90’s with a twist of the new. Shortly after picking up a studio in Isla Vista, we ran across our friend Nick Fitzgerald, guitarist from “Battleship Grey,” and things started coming together. Barry Carter filled in on drums and we picked up James Longorea to play Guitar and fill in the rest of our sound. The drums are hard hitting, the guitars are heavy, the vocals inspire and carry the melodic sound of a band that demands to be heard. We have been compared to the likes of Alice In Chains, STP, Danzig, Muse, Bowie, Incubus and others. Listen to our music and you decide. See you at our next show.’ -WR LastFM bio

You can catch them everywhere, but here’s a few of their pages to visit:
