BLEU’S CHOIR I recently sang in Bleu’s choir at the Bank America Pavilion. Pictured above are four of the handsome male members of the choir. It was a WFNX Distorientation event and Bleu made the most of it with 50 people on the stage at one point (all decked out in tuxes and evening dresses). Besides the vocal choir, he had a 15-piece guitar choir! Most people know that Bleu has moved out to L.A.—he still gets coverage from The … Read More >>

  PARIS Ahhh—a real vacation. I spent 10 days in August exploring Paris and, wow, was it beautiful. I kept a journal and took a lot of photos.

VACATION The Summer Peace issue is done and after I finish distributing it, I get time off before the September issue. This year I’m actually going to go someplace.

But I may need to know more than that to get around. … Read More >>

END WAR NOW UPDATE Ahh, 44 singers showed up to be apart of the choir and lead vocal tracks on April 15th at Hi-n-Dry. We’ve got 59 tracks of music and vocals that sound great, but I’m still looking to improve the song with a surprise in the ending. By the time this song is mixed, we’ll be involved in another Middle East war. Just joking—but the real possibility makes it not funny.  Go to to hear the demo … Read More >>

The first segment of Dreamers Wanted is called “End War Now.” Go to and check out the demo of “End War Now.” See if this project is … Read More >>
