Late Winter and Early Spring

Image
March has been a very interesting month weather wise, we had a late snow storm immediately followed by Spring weather in the 50s(F) to 70s(F). But no worries that has no stopped my fellow Baltimorians or I from still spreading good vibes.
 I've been listening to the semi-final mixes of the "LunaVerse" album, making last minute adjustments, and even thinking of re-imagining one of the songs. Its just not sitting right with me, so I may have to try and see how else to present it to you all.

 I also had the opportunity to upload a couple of albums to The Mosnonauts BandCamp page which I've been getting feedback on from the lovely members, they seem to be enjoying them, here they are:

 Also later this month, I am honored to be part of a short list of local artist who will be giving a private performance to some very special people, to help convince them to bring their music festival to our beloved Baltimore.

I hope March has been treating you well, more from news will be …

And its only February!

What an active Winter we've had.
Two months in, and there is already bans against minorities, rejection of refugees, and a political cabinets being over run by spawns of hell themselves, all while a tiny tiny doll, who believes is a real person, stands and lies as if its his oxygen. Holy Crap. The so called president is Pinocchio.

I will be doing a benefit concert in April, to help raise money for a lovely cause called "Henna With Love", that gives 100% of the money towards treatments for refugees.

More on this will come.
In the mean time, please be kind to each other.


Much love

A Shiny New Year

Image
Its a whole new year, yes certain things didn't go as we planned in the past, and things are looking a bit trepidations in the future, but it is STILL the future non the less.

I'm still excited because I will be part of a couple of projects this year (if not more). One of which will of course be "LunaVerse", as well as being a co-producer with Maurice of Stinkiface Studios for artist Janice B.'s upcoming project.

I'm also hoping to bring out The Moonbeams for more performances, as well as working on personal things, and hopefully blog a bit more if I can.

Thank you for being part of my journey thus far, I really appreciate all the love and support you have given me. And if this is your first time here, Shukran wa Marhaba (Thank You & Welcome).

Lets make 2017 amazing for all of us.
I love you all.

Dec 19th : System Down !! SUDAN

Image
On Dec 19th of 2016.
The people of Sudan are rising up against the Government.
Omar Al-Basheer is threatening to "KILL" anyone who goes out marching against him.


I feel like NO one talks about my beloved Sudan, its almost always under the radar. They revolted TWICE in the past 3 years, but NO one spoke about them. The media has no problems talking about Egypt, Syria, Libiya, or almost any other country, but it comes to my beloved Sudan, suddenly the media has nothing to say, and this is not just in America.


My people have been FORCED to not only revolt, but to document their own revolution. They use cell phones to document the marches to YouTube, for the rest of us to see what is happening on the ground level. The Sudanese Government knows this, which is why they have no problem KILLING anyone who apposes them.

Enough is Enough!I'm using my site to help spread the word about what is happening in Sudan. They have already banned this site there, but its not banned in the rest …

The Christmas Special : 2016

Hello Mosnonaut, I hope you are all doing well, it has been a while, and I miss you all very much. I apologize if I have dropped off the face of the planet. I had to make some important life choices, and due to that, my life has gotten a whole lot busier.
The bitter sweet news is, things are still moving forward, just at a slower pace than I expected, but forward momentum is what's important here, we must keep a positive eye on things, especially in these interesting days of ours.
I'm here today to help spread some cheer, and laughter to you all. For the past couple of years I've had the honor of being part of The Christmas Special, a comedy variety live show put together by comedian / speaker Spencer Humm (of Hack & Slash).
I'm honored to say that I will be joining them again this year for this year's "Old Time Radio Show" themed Christmas Special. We have lots of fun at these shows, lots of laughs, and good memories for everyone. Yes i…

Technology + Art : Tablets

Image
Hello Readers, Mosno here, Tablets are great, I love them, they are convenient, light, and now a-days very powerful. There are many flavors, and many manufactures out there, so what I'm going to do is tell you about MY tablet, the one that I choose, because it fits what I need it to be.
I have the Galaxy Note 8, and here is why I got it. -It's an Android OS (which I prefer over Apple OS). -It comes with an integrated stylus, which comes handy when I draw sketches for idea for album covers. -Its an 8inch tablet, so it's a perfect size for reading as well.
But one of the main features I got it for, was for its native application called "S Note". I love this app, it allows you to create different types of notes, including ones which allow you to draw and audio record into the note.
That feature is by far, my favorite feature. Because it allowed me to create a digital song journal. When I'm working on new songs, I can type lyrics, draw the chords of the song, an…
