Languages of Harpers Faery

These are not all the languages, nor are they full dictionaries of the languages, merely a basic guide. It is worth noting that these languages usually have their own alphabet and cultural interpretations of symbols; in addition to word and name differences. In this guide we only use Common symbols for simplification of quick universal translation. There are some hybrid words between human and faerie languages, because cultures have cross-over evolution blending.

Hey You Guys (Green Rap) – AMM SCOD concept by Drogo, lyrics by Codiak, rapped by Codiak

HEY YOU GUYS

People please wake up, our planet we are killin’;

Polluting all our resources, nothing left for the children.

Please think of the native americans before us.

Show respect for the mountains, open plains, and the forests.

Man-kind extinction, that’s what we are facing.

We maintain our cell phones, but mother earth we are defacing.

There is no way to deny it, there are changes in our climate.

Warfare and shrapnel, we care more about gain capital,

than the reservation (resurrection) of our fragile planet.

(Drogo, they don’t hear me man! Wake em up!)

HEY YOU GUYS

Man-made chemicals, factories, vehicles; form death called smog.

Best believe we are breathing it all.

Children born with disabilities due to radiation in facilities.

Poisoned waters, West Virginia took it personal, I’m from there.

Nuclear bomb testing, gunned down while protesting.

This ignorance is persistent, mother earth needs our assistance.

Can’t stand by idly, there’s a fight brewing inside of me.

Elephants and rhinos getting murdered for their ivory.

Families misplaced, industries they replace THEM;

It’s all about the money, what about THEM?

Pipeline running through the MOUNTAINS.

Gator belts and shark skins.

Love comes from the heart AND soul.

Our young ones gotta know,

tickin’ time bomb, and the world about to blow….

world about to blow….

not a word about the blow….

word about the blow…

Drogo Quotes 4

Posted in Interviews, Psychology with tags , , , , , , , on April 29, 2014 by Drogo

I was told all my life not to pursue a career in Art or Music because they don’t make money; even my liberal artsy parents told me that… now after having died a few times and been reborn, i have a few things to say about that common statement. Popularity and Finances are only two aspects of the game called LIFE. First off we should not all strive to be Mega-stars who ‘make it big’ because the very concept is based on the framework of oligarchy and i do not want to encourage plutocracy. Secondly in an equal democracy of citizen artists we have the ability to schedule or freely live our own lives and walk out our doors without getting assaulted by pop-art-artsy (capitalist journalism). Thirdly i would rather live in a nut-house with no bills to pay, than not be able to draw or make noise and still be expected to pay bills – and not even get free medicine.

*

Treat yourself good, so you can do good for others, or at least be nice to those that deserve it.

*

Patience is a key to happiness, influence, and wisdom.  Patience is not always the same thing, sometimes patience means giving way to another; but other times patience is something we teach to others by taking our time in front of them on the road.

*

I want to take the time to say thank you to all those that take the time to communicate respectfully as equals; or at least as benevolent overlords; thank you! even when communicating in ‘drill instructor’ mode or ‘silent apathy’ mode, there is either an underlying spirit that cares, or there is not… and with patience you can recognize the pattern of behaviors for what they are. A good actor can play a villain, but check safeties on guns and go out for drinks with the actors they killed on set, to make sure there are no ill feelings left over after the parts are played. I think fear stops people from tending bridges.

*

i dont experience time in a strictly linear way; most moments my mind is leaping back and forth between the past, future, and fiction; like a work song or marching cadence – living in the present flow but transcending with memory and imagination. I am sure this is indeed how most minds work.

*

In the game of Progress, setbacks remembered become steps forward quite quickly.

*

Gonzo architecture means becoming the project; and authority is a mask for violence.

Musician Chris McKinley “Rise of Tides”

Posted in Cooperatives / Communities / Networks / Travels, Critical Commentary of Civilization, Individuals / Members / Monsters / Creative Writing, Interviews, Poems, Rhymes, Riddles, Song Lyrics & Analysis with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 19, 2011 by Drogo

Chris McKinley

Band “Rise of Tides”

1. Why did you start “Rise of Tides”:

To make waves, big waves, little waves, all kinds of ripples in space. Though, it was actually another band when I started, called Sidewalk Renegade. The name Rise of Tides came from an old song we wrote called, “Saw You”. The intro lyrics went:

“Improvised discreetly
A coupe disguised keenly
Masquerading as democracy…
I see waves crashing and crushing
I see masses combined as One rushing
To the lands where the sands of time are sold by the dime
Appearing here before my eyes
A rise of tides”

And so that’s the kind of vision that Rise of Tides was born out of, and the way we found the name.

It’s been an ongoing process of co-creation. Initially I was just a shy poet at heart that was fortunate enough to be encouraged to sing and suddenly found in music that most potent form of communication and greatest fulfillment I’d ever experienced, so the rest just fell into place.

2. Tell us a little bit about your band:

It’s really just us and our hearts, so perhaps saying anything’s saying too much when the music itself is the best communication.

We are like minded artists with a shared deep appreciation for the power of music, (art in general)’s capacity to effect change and inspire progression, inside one’s own self and the outside world.

We all have a deep love for the art, are moved and inspired by that vital, most open expression this rich medium grants us. We enjoy music of every variety (that is, honest music made for open-hearted creation’s sake) and find the phenomenon of sounds as music fascinating for when brought together they seem to be able to engender high-level communion, fullest communication, share joy, make sadness beautiful, offer reflection, empathy and personal connection, even revelation in so many emotionally riveting ways.

3. How does your music express progressive ideas?
Rise of Tides supports all progressive movements where Peace is the Way, supporting eco-consciousness, co-creation, self-reflection, and growth through expansion of self.

I would say that there’s a lot that can be read into lyrics-wise, for those interested, though it’s the music the guys in the band create that gives the context.

For me our music simply feels like a natural evolution of rock music with various influences that help us push the boundaries, thus in this way it could be said to be progressive as well (though commercial radio may have confused things a bit over the years). Fortunately we’re no longer limited to radio to explore and find new music to appreciate.

4. What are some of your favorite progressive ideas?
I’ll provide a few quotes that chime with me.

“The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which he he has attained to liberation from self.” -Einstein

“To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men,—that is genius.” -Emerson

And Martin Luther King Jr:
“I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values….
True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it is not haphazard and superficial. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring….
This call for a world-wide fellowship that lifts neighborly concern beyond one’s tribe, race, class and nation is in reality a call for an all-embracing and unconditional love for all men. This oft misunderstood and misinterpreted concept — so readily dismissed by the Nietzsches of the world as a weak and cowardly force — has now become an absolute necessity for the survival of man. When I speak of love I am not speaking of some sentimental and weak response. I am speaking of that force which all of the great religions have seen as the supreme unifying principle of life. Love is somehow the key that unlocks the door which leads to ultimate reality.”

5. How important is “Organic” design in your life, as opposed to simple mechanical design? For example in the food you eat, buildings you live in, and work you do…

Poetry, music and artistic-activism are my life’s true work. Aside from that I’ve been health conscious as far as what I eat and drink for a large part my life now, buying from organic farmers through Fair-Trade whenever possible. Especially by supporting local farmers by visiting local farmer’s markets.

I support the rising world revolutions for peace and justice, free and open software movements, the KillerCoke campaign, GnosticMedia, TragedyandHope, among many other positive-action groups.

Organic just makes sense. Eco-consciousness allows us work with naturally efficiency that is most conducive to long term enjoyment and survival of this living, Earthen mother-ship. The excess industrialization our living planet suffers can be heavy and distressing, I’ve found it helpful to remember this wonder that has created us as such able stewards and this gives me great hope, understanding that this is all just part of the process. Ever seen Woody Harrelson’s flash-poem? “Thoughts from Within?” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dj0GZQdCct8

6. Do you have any other plans for future “Development” of these or any other goals? Advice for others?

Rise of Tides supports Ubuntu/Linux and the free and open software movement and look forward to doing a lot of work in this regard. We are excited to be kicking it off this year with the Ubuntu partnership and RiseofTides.com coming very soon, as well as new tracks from our first official album release!!!
We are presently preparing a couple of new members to tour with us, though very soon you shall be able to find us supporting various righteous, progressive movements, positive campaigns, festivals, benefits and would love suggestions if anyone knows of something they feel Rise of Tides should be involved in.
Advice for others? To live an authentic life. To question everything. To seek Truth and inquire within. Love without condition. Be willing to be wrong in order to know what’s right. Watch Paul Stamets Ted Talks on 6 Ways Mushrooms Can Save the World. Stay young at heart. Always leave room to grow, and don’t eat the yellow snow, unless it’s after a reindeer that looks like he thinks he’s flying and you want to go flying with him, then go for it, but really, that’s at your own risk.
