this is a blog

Welcome to my first blog on here. My name is Christian. I am from Atlanta, Georgia. I've been living in Washington DC for a while. I was born in 1983. I have a Poli Sci degree and a half decade experiance as a performing synthesist. My two central music projects at the moment can be found online at and .

Here's a pretty song I wrote:

I am currently at a transition in my life; quitting my seasonal job in DC after I've been carefully saving and working 50-60 hour weeks since March. The next six months will involve traveling to Europe, as well as to the American West, living alone on a mountain in North Georgia working on music 24/7, and touring the greater US with Bajskorv and Worms of the Earth. I anticipate this to be a fairly interesting time in my life, and therefore I've decided to create this blog to share my observations and conclusions with people beyond those I already communicate with on MS and facebook.

Also, I do have many strongly held political beliefs. I don't like the war, or George Bush, or racists who attack immigrants. I don't like Democratic politicians who take money from the same companies that already bought out the Republicans and whose policies differ from them very little. I have many friends who are gay, lesbian, or trangendered, and homophobia as well is something that bothers me a lot. I also don't like the fact that being rich is a prequesite for official political participation in the United States. I identify as a Trotskyist.

I suppose its pretty common place these days to dislike our government and perceive it as corrupt. Right wing populism and left wing populism are both growing. To anyone who's still confused as to why anyone should criticize and distrust the American (form of) government, I reccomend that you apply for a job as a waiter in Georgetown.

I'm very politically aware about the world, yet while I am traveling I think that any kind of committed, organized political activism will be difficult to participate in. Therefore, I can at least keep myself abreast of events, keep my mind sharp, and contribute somewhat to political struggles by honing my skills as a writer in the meantime. Writing is something I've been meaning to do more of, but I've never really had the time for it these past years. Day jobs and before that school didn't help.

Anways, here you go. Laugh like a fish.


  1. Good luck with your new website. The ISO is not trotskyist, it is a reformist pressure-group on the Democratic Party. Check out this article from The Internationalist no. 12 to see what the Trotskyists say about imperialist war and how to defeat it.

  2. Thanks for the comment fred. Cool someone else read this... but I thought that tone was a little whack. I liked how it went from this epic portrayal of naval armadas and 20 years of Afganisatan being blown up to the world-historic significance of the presence of one guest speaker on one panel that a tiny socialist group in new york did.

    I was there in 2000, 2001, and ever since, and though I wish we had broader support and were more effective, I don't think that if I went back in time and had to do it all over again I would do anything politically different.
