Thank you to those here on Myspace that have helped us further our cause. We can't do this without your support. Here is what you have accomplished so far:
•"Now Lie In It" debuted as one of the top ten selling albums on Metropolis Records.
•"The Sub Space Tour" covered 16 cities in 9 different states in the US including Chicago, Memphis, Phoenix, Atlanta, Houston and Miami.
We are an independent band. The music you're getting is a pure vision, not some marketing scheme.
We couldn't have done this without word of mouth leading to CD sales. And direct support from fans.
"When are you coming to my town?" is the most common question I get. If it were up to us, we'd be on tour non-stop. But none of us have trust funds. Everything we do depends on you. Now is the time to step up and be a solider in our battle to open minds around the globe.
This is me talking directly to you here.
It all comes down to supporting the good stuff and showing record companies that they can't force you to like something because it is the only choice you have. You can make a call in one hand, play arcade games in the other with your music collection hanging from your neck and a supercomputer on your lap that is wired to the world. There is no way to keep you from the latest music.
Spread the word to your friends, add us to your favorite music, post bulletins with links to our website. Support our mission of mind liberation by adding our banner to your page.

Books are using your imagination. How can you be an "individual" if you don't pursue knowledge instead of letting others present it to you? ...
HeroesI aspire to be my own hero. With these people as my inspiration:
Quentin Z (the most smart, talented and good hearted person I've ever met - his music is otherwordly), The journalist who threw his shoes at Bush (I just love self expression), Helen Keller (for not giving up even though she had every excuse), Anne Sullivan (for not letting her give up), Martin Luther King, Martin Gore/ Dave Gahan/ Kraftwerk/ Nick Rhodes (and other musicians who had to withstand backlash for introducing something new + inferior technology to do their art), Rosa Parks (for not moving), Michael Moore for speaking and Barbara Boxer for listening and The Black Caucus for protesting in the first place, Rosalind Franklin, Ph.D. (took picture of double helix DNA structure and died at 37, possibly from her work, never knowing she was the key to one of the most important discoveries of our time), Larry Flynt (for smoking out rat's with his own money), Burt Rutan (Space Ship One and a visionary), Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking, Those responsible for the Cassini-Huygens space probe on Saturn's moon Titan. If you ever want to impress me then stand up for what you believe in and follow your dreams no matter how hard they are to accomplish - if there's a will, there's a way. Be yourself.
George Bush and all his cronies. Governments that keep the people down through fear, intimidation and LIES - all bullies coerce money from their victims while claiming they are providing "protection" and "safety". Anyone who picks on a person or animal to boost their own ego. Only losers pick on things that can't fight back. People who are afraid of cats or "just don't like them" because you have to win them over to gain their affection. People who do not live in reality and follow instead of think. People who are unwilling to work toward a goal, but expect to benefit from it. People who collect women on myspace, the way some people collect stamps. Drones, abusers and people who react before they think. People who spend time categorizing other people based on their physical appearance, so what? I can't imagine how bored with my own life and insecure with myself I would have to be to bother. Anyone who gets angry because of this paragraph.
I want more than the usual 9-5, the 2.5 kids, the Chevy Suburban and the soccer practice. I want to experience the energy of life, not spend the rest of my days counting down my death and doing what is expected. I am in control. I've seen the worst of the world and now I choose to enjoy living. I've had to fight for everything, nothing has ever been handed to me and I'm grateful for every day spent doing what I thought life could be. Ever notice it's only the truly miserable people who force their small views of life on everyone around them. I don't listen to the miserable, they are weak. The harder they try to bring me down, the more it fuels my fire. I do not need to compete, or perform for the supervisors of the world. I know what they are up to, man. I'd rather build than destroy, anyone can destroy. What does it accomplish? When you are finished all you have is a pile of rubble. No, I am looking to build, sure it is harder, but I always did like a nice challenge.
I am a true voluptuary and I see the world through that perspective. But my intention is not to shock people or get the attention of males to build my ego. I'm married. I get plenty of attention. I'm fascinated with class, kindness and sophistication. I've seen things most couldn't imagine and have done much traveling but I've never stopped learning. I'm looking forward to seeing much more of humanity and the world. I don't lie and I don't cheat. I am an idealist and a realist - which are often at opposing sides. And I notice everything. Yes, everything.
If you catch me at the right moment, when I am truly into it, I can stop time, you'll feel it when it happens. You will not need to breathe and your heart will be between beats, I can reach out and manipulate the fabric of reality right in front of you. Those who can resist the temptation to say or do something to make it stop will get to share the energy, unfortunately it is too frightening for most and they abruptly ruin the moment. I'm always looking for the ones who can handle the intensity.
I don't believe in right and left, I believe in right and wrong. I also believe in civil disobedience, laws were made to be challenged. It is the responsibility of the people to make sure our lawmakers are not abusing the power we are allowing them. And it is our responsibility to let them know we do not approve of their actions. Nothing ever changed without someone first saying "No." Napoleon bragged that he could train men to sacrifice their lives for a scrap of ribbon. Wonder if he's ever had Freedom Fries...
Art is resistance...

Who I'd like to meet:I'd basically like to meet everyone, but I usually like the sweet ones, the shy ones and the genuine ones. It takes guts to be kind in a world based on survival, I admire those that remain hopeful. I like the ones with an agenda similar to mine. What I am looking for are comrades in the fight against conformity, conservatism and capitalism. I am looking for people who see through the crap of the day to day, who see past skin and bank statements and who operate on a different wavelength than Baywatch. I am looking for the ones who aren't afraid. I want to talk to people who don't see boundaries as challenges or kindness as a sign of weakness that can then be exploited. I want to meet those who are confident enough to think that any club who would accept them as a member must be a pretty cool place. I want to meet women who are inspiring. I want to meet men who have goals and dreams, interests and hobbies (collecting women on myspace is not one of them). I don't care if you wear the latest designers or know the names and birthplaces of every band that has ever existed, it's not a competition. I don't care if you are gay or straight. I don't care if you are androgynous or transsexual. I welcome diversity. I want to be proud of people for achieving, growing, learning, expressing and for being themselves - whatever that is. You can be vanilla, chocolate or strawberry - as long as you don't preach your lifestyle to me we'll get along fine. I don't care to debate you. I know what I am, I am a dominant woman who knows her place in life and I'm happy to not be just like everyone else or what society would like me to be. I want to meet people who are above their animal instincts. I want to meet couples who do not see the man as an ATM, or the woman as an accessory. The 80's were a great time in music but I have moved on. We base our choices nowadays only on what we see and that is unfortunate, I've always wanted to be way more than that. As a woman I am constantly judged based on appearance and most people never look any further. I like to be what you don't expect. I'm everything at all times and very real. I don't want to talk to someone who only sees themself as a reflection in a mirror. Make-up is amazing when used to express personality, it is dull when used to cover the lack of one. I don't want to talk with someone's insecurities, I want to feel the energy of their life, I don't want to be met with judgment or fear. I want to be supportive, encouraging and open. People who get bored easily are boring, if you can't entertain yourself then why should I find you interesting? I expect a lot from people, because I expect a lot from myself. There is more to life than cars and jewelry and I expect to find what I am looking for. Care to join the quest? Go ahead add me, make my minute.
If I've requested to add you, I've read your profile and found you interesting. I may not send an email. I'm not into collecting people. I don't compete for who has the biggest list (I get pages and pages of adds a day, I could easily do the big meaningless list thing). Every profile added I find intriguing in some way. I always respond to emails, unless you are rude, ask something that is answered by my profile or do not respect my relationship - then I will delete you or report you. I am busy and have no time for bullshit or barbarians, but will make time for the right people, always.
Who I don't want to meet:IF YOU ARE A BAND- READ MY MUSIC. I'm on here for a sense of community, not to be harassed.
I'm not looking for sex, or flirting, or teasing or anything of the sort. There are plenty of women on here who are, find them. I have my man for life and monogamy is one of my most sensual fetishes.
Those who claim to be bitches and assholes are not my cup of tea. I don't have time for it.
I am looking for quality, not quantity -
I won't add you if:
I suspect you're not a real person.
If your profile is blank.
If I can't tell who you are because you have nothing but pictures and videos and no information about yourself, I make friends with people not pictures.
If you don't have any music listed.
If you only have one photo and it isn't you.
If you are in the service then approach me as a person, not a soldier.
If you are male and have nothing but females. (I don't waste my time reading profiles of men unable to make friends with other men).
If you refer to females as bitches, ho's etc. or if you claim to "love the ladies"- I will block you from contacting me. I don't want a big deal made out of my gender.
I don't care if you're on my list, I'm not competing, I'm looking for quality people with
interests, not to be part of some list of hot chicks. It's creepy how many collectors exist. If you are single and looking for dates that's fine, leave me out of it, but what irks me is that even married men are doing it - it's so cavemanish. Women can tell you are collecting them to boost your own fragile ego (and some of them take full advantage of your weakness). I like people who see through bs, not perpetuate it. If you are a man and you are on my list consider yourself part of the elite.
If you have anything of the above, you are not quality. Buzz off.
It can take about a week for me to add you, longer if I'm sick or out of town or if Myspace is having problems, so don't get discouraged and remove yourself. I read everyone's profile, look at their pictures and get a sense of who they are before I add someone and it takes time. I will either accept or deny everyone, ..if you are still waiting for an approval it means I haven't been able to read your profile yet...
In the cases of denials don't take it personally (most people don't fit the qualifications above). Simply send me an email and introduce yourself for a better chance. I'm attempting to keep my list hand picked. I especially deny a lot of bands, it got to where I was swimming in promotions and that is not why I am here.
What I approve: Personal messages to me, great, thank you. I always reciprocate, just may take awhile or unless your page crashes my machine.
What is iffy: I don't approve large pictures or images, unless very compelling.
Just don't bother: I absolutely do not approve advertisements for bands or most personal projects. This is MY page, not a bulletin board. Show some respect.
I do not approve comments with sound. It gets old real quick.
