Yes, I have a chip on my shoulder

I’ve succeeded in several aspects of my life. I’ve had a successful marriage and raised a strong, healthy son who’s now serving our great nation. And I’ve brought us from the working class into the upper middle class, with a healthy safety net. I’m in pretty amazing shape and I’ve aged very slowly.

However, I do not consider myself successful. I do not consider myself successful because I have yet to turn Astral Eyes profitable. And for that, I have a chip on my shoulder.

A chip on my shoulder is a good thing

Contrary to popular opinion, I strongly believe having a chip on my shoulder is a good thing. Once again, I’ll use sports as an analogy. If I had to put money on someone, it would be the one with the biggest chip on their shoulders. Look at the biggest winners. After winning over and over again, they still feel like they have something to prove.

I’ve already proved everyone who doubted me wrong. I’ve had plenty of people who thought I’d never amount to anything.

But I’m not happy and I refuse to be content until we’re touring the world and making big money. Then, I want to build an entertainment empire. Thus, you see me not just doing music, but learning directing, learning drawing, storyboarding, writing, editing, and everything else.

Musically, I’ve already proved that I’m a damn good musician. I still need to prove that I’m an awesome composer and orchestrator.

Stay hungry

I write this blog because I love to write. I also keep a blog because I want to meet similarly minded people. I’d love to meet highly motivated people, both on the business end and the artistic end.

I want to create jobs that people look forward to going to. My mother dreamed of some day having a scholarship, but she never lived to see it happening. I’ll carry on that dream and put it in her name once we start making the big money.

I also want to do great things for my country. I want to set aside land for forests and wolves. Wolves are underrated creatures. They keep nature balanced like no other land animal. I strongly believe America needs to preserve more of her open space to save her soul forever. I’m a strict Bill of Rights guy, but also a guy who cares about the outdoors because I’m a true Romantic.

I’d love to inspire other folks to pursue their dreams. America talks about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and I take that shit very seriously.

Anyways, stay tuned for a lot of good music. We’ll be releasing a song at a time in 2017. This stuff will be like nothing you’ve ever heard. It will be true Romantic Metal.
