The King Charles Era
New sound, new style, still the same loser.

Seen but not heard.

The discipline of Michael Hayes

...with the Southern charm and Metropolis attitude.

In 2012, I had just gotten out of jail, earned TheAppleSupercomputer and (most importantly to me) garnered a buzz of elephant proportions.
Yet due to social debts, I was convinced to go out and get a deal.
By 2014, I ended up with one.
Most of my time on the roster, I was unhappy.
My humor was censored, my opinions watered down and my musical content was limited.
There were times when I would cut loose, but I didn't go too far.
In fact, the loose-cut could be seen online.
Nothing foolish, just more abrasive than the execs were used to.

6 years later, I'm in a similar position.
As my birthday approaches, I want to remind myself that A LOT wouldn't be the case if it weren't for me.
From the darkly, happy-go-lucky me to the conservative Balboa me to the brooding, psychedelic me and/to wherever else I may go.
Every Top 5 list is comprised of people who know about me.
Every negative thing said about me I gave you the ammunition to say.
To not know what this means is to have options.

But who let you know?

Happy birthday, Sonic the Hamilton.

Gilmore sermons

Psalm 38 King James Version (KJV)
38 O Lord, rebuke me not in thy wrath: neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

2 For thine arrows stick fast in me, and thy hand presseth me sore.

3 There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.

4 For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.

5 My wounds stink and are corrupt because of my foolishness.

6 I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.

7 For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh.

8 I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.

9 Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.

10 My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.

11 My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore; and my kinsmen stand afar off.

12 They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.

13 But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.

14 Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.

15 For in thee, O Lord, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.

16 For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.

17 For I am ready to halt, and my sorrow is continually before me.

18 For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.

19 But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.

20 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.

21 Forsake me not, O Lord: O my God, be not far from me.

22 Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation.
