This Is What It Is

Getting started.

It's always a pain in the ass. You face the blistering sting of potential failure, the lingering sense that things aren't okay, and the fleeting notion that you might get something done. Eventually.

Well here we are, toes dangling over the edge and staring down into the abyss of What Could Be.

And what exactly could be, you ask?

My hope is that this site eventually turns into a hub for like-minded artists and musicians, a playground for indie creators.

For now, it's the central location for my virtual band - The Pale Hypnotic. But here's the secret: that's not just a band name. It's also a philosophy.

The Pale Hypnotic is that swirling creative energy that churns inside every creator. It's the spark that a reader feels when she loses herself in a book; it's the awe that a child feels when he stares at the night sky and thinks, "What could be up there?"

The Pale Hypnotic is imagination. It is creativity. It is the nature of making, the indescribable feeling you get when handed a ball of clay. It is potential. It is a means. It is.

Welcome to the yawning void of What Could Be. Won't you join me as we start exploring the shadows?
