That Helmet tho!!

All right guys. I don't know if you remember back in the day when I first started there in the helmet. Who was actually a old plastic Thor toy helmet.
[OLD TOY ONE]------->>>

I eventually upgraded to the black one that you guys have seen me in and pictures.

I think we all like the black one a lot better.
                   [NEW BLACK ONE]------->>>
It's got those cool side wings/face guards, and it seems to remind everyone a little more of Batman then Thor. I can definitely appreciate that.

But what the heck is up with this new Thor helmet! It even has a digital, Mega Man, futuristic feel. Is the Marvel Cinematic Universe copying me?  did they sit down in the meeting with Thor it was all like, "Hey we need you to be more like the Xero guy. Change your helmet to Black and make it more digital."

     Every once & a while a track will come along & have the "it" factor, this is one of those tracks. As hip-hop continually seeks to reinvent itself, this mix sets a new bar. "Worship At Ya Throne (Future Bass XEROmix)", has the right balance of fluid, precise & powerful lyrics combined with a music bed that is sure to please even the pickiest ears across the EDM board. This track is evidence that when members of the body of Christ come together & seek to glorify God, that God shows up & honors that request.

     This is the beginning of what you have been longing for in music, something new, something fresh & something with purpose, don't sleep on this track."

The song "Zombies" isn't about the walking dead. It is about drug addiction and withdrawals, but also uses the idea of "zombies" as both a metaphor of the public psyche AND the mental state of a drug addict when he's between highs. It is not necessarily referring to street drugs, because I want to include the mentality of the person who is on way too much prescription medication as well.

When you listen to the lyrics about how this guy feels, you can see that he's willing to ignore the consequences for the sake of his drug. He goes from "willingly ignorant" to "totally apathetic".

The red part in the log represents the chemical structure of the main ingredient in Xanax, a powerful antidepressant.

Lyrics:
(Verse 1)
I see the Storm a-comin'
I see the coulds a-formin'
I'll pay no attention to the weather today
Cuz it's dead behind those darkened eyes
(Verse 2)
Ain't no emotion stirrin'
ain't no ideas a-formin'
I'll pay no attention to the wind and the waves
Cuz it's cold inside that hardened mind
But could it be
that as we're livin' in a fantasy
we've given over our minds to a life we never wanted to lead
and so I, turn up the bottle and try to forget tomorrow
like it doesn't really matter to me
cuz these eyes have been blind to the dark and the light
and all I see is the gray in between
(chorus)
when the lights go out and the darkness falls
how long will you hold on?
when the push comes to shove and the time finally comes
how far are you willing to go?
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
fighting the Zombie Virus off
(Verse 3)
I don't care what you're saying
Can't hear the song you're playing
I'll pay no attention to the kids in the way
Cuz I'm numb behind this hollow smile
But could it be
that as we're livin' in a fantasy
we've given over our minds to a life we never wanted to lead
And so I, I pop another pill
I take the chaser like it doesn't really matter to me
cuz these eyes have been blind to the dark and the light
and all I see is the gray in between
(chorus)
when the lights go out and the darkness falls
how long will you hold on?
when the push comes to shove and the time finally comes
how far are you willing to go?
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
fighting the Zombie Virus off
(Final Chorus)
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
Cuz it's dead behind those darkened eyes
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
Cuz I'm numb behind this hollow smile
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
I knew I wouldn't be the only one
fighting the Zombie Virus off

4th Quarter Closed

This is an announcement for all of my entertainment friends in the Michigan area, that I will no long be doing any events OUTSIDE of Shiawassee county for the rest of the year. I've had a few invitations to attend events or to perform at events outside of the county, and as much as I love to help, I simply can't do it this quarter.
This trend will continue through most of January, and perhaps February, if the winter is really bad. I will remain in the studio, finishing up my recordings for Ascension, and for some other projects in the works. I will always be open to discuss any local events WITHIN the Shiawassee Area. For inquiries about major/large but non-local events, please call or email me.
Thanks guys, and have a great rest of the year.
XERO
