What now, Mr. Trump?

Since his presidency started, there’s been no shortage of entertainment and I’m really not sure how to feel about that. From the controversial cabinet picks after claiming to want to “drain the swamp”, to the so called “travel ban” he is still fighting for, it just seems to never slow down. The newest “whoops!” coming out of the white house is the “Mar-a-lago” controversy.

Now don’t get me wrong, everyone is entitled to their own opinions on him. Like him or hate him, it is your right and that is what our democracy is all about. Now with that being said, I believe that this recent incident is completely unacceptable.

For those of you who aren’t in the loop on what is going on, Donald Trump was eating at his private Florida resort with the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, when receiving the news about North Korea test firing a missile into the sea, off it’s eastern coast. Instead of moving to a private and secure location, Donald Trump stayed on the patio, where the public had full view. Normally when dealing with countries like North Korea, the president and his team would move to the situation room, or a “Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility” when they are away from the white house. This ensures that no one can eavesdrop.

One of the club members at Donald’s resort named Richard DiAgazio was so close he snapped a picture for his Facebook. He wrote: “HOLY MOLY!!! It was fascinating to watch the flurry of activity at dinner when the news came that North Korea had launched a missile in the direction of Japan,”. He posted this picture:

Mr. DiAgazio also posted a photo of himself with the military aide that carries the nuclear codes. Sadly, we are so used to incidents like this with Mr. Trump, that it will be swept under the carpet. I gotta give it to him though, the guy certainly knows how to entertain.

Like I said before, everyone is entitled to there opinions. I believe he is careless and that just may catch up with him. Please do not be shy, let me know how you feel about this! All opinions are welcome, and let’s be respectful!

The Incredible Power of Social Media! (COM0011)

Growing up I was obsessed with classic rock. From Led Zeppelin, to Steely Dan, to the Dire Straits, I just couldn’t get enough of it. I always dreamed of what it would be like to pick up a guitar and have real people actually enjoying your music. From there on out, I decided I was going to be a musician.

I started playing guitar around the age of 8 and haven’t looked back. I formed many bands throughout the years, but never had anything to serious. It wasn’t until a band I formed with some high school friends that I really discovered my potential. We got into some really heavy music and decided that was the path we were going to take. This was around the year 2014 and we had a few songs written. Like every local band, we made a Facebook and YouTube page, and had all our friends follow and like us. We had finally had enough songs and we released our self-titled EP. selftitled

After releasing this album, we never would have expected the outcome. We suddenly had not only our friends liking and sharing our music, but strangers from different countries all over the place. It was insane! We started getting such a great demanded, that we started printing and selling our Cd’s and also printing and selling t-shirt. Some songs were breaking over 10,000 plays on YouTube and we were getting many show offers in the southern Ontario/ Montreal area.

Once the hype over our EP settled down, and we played some shows, we received an incredible message on Facebook. It was a record company from Florida called Famined Records that was interested in signing our band. We signed with them and have recently put out our newest album titled TRANSIENT.                                                                                                                                                                transient

It’s crazy to think of how powerful social media has become. All we had to do was make the music, and it did the rest. Although we are very far from being at any kind of “rockstar” status, it’s pretty cool to know that my dream of having somebody genuinely give a damn about my music, come true. Never doubt social media as a way of getting your brand, or band, out to the rest of the world. Now tell me, what has social media done for you?

Here is a ink to one of our new songs. Be warned, it is fairly heavy! Enjoy!
