Which Wave Are You Headed

Reminiscence back to that 80s flick, where you see Tom Cruise speeding down the freeway on his motorcycle in Top Gun (I left it a little blurring to give it that retro feel). 

When you look back to the eighties it is as if your looking directly into a world of science fiction. Think about it; the movies, the style, lol the hair, and the many innovations and inventions in technology. But what’s most scientific about this era is the music, and the immortal legacy it left behind. I’m not talking Sweet Dreams, Beat it, or When Doves Cry. I am speaking about that new wave, that retro they call the New Retro Wave.

For the last two weeks, I have been hardcore listening to eighties electro music, particularly something called Retro Synthwave or New Retro Wave. I guess it’s a thing, because to me it is a thing. It makes me think of lasers, sci-fi books and movies, which brings me to my point. The eighties were the prime era of Science Fiction novels and movies; Terminator, Explorers, Blade Runner, and of course Star Wars, and my unsurpassed favorite Alien. These films set the tone for writers like me. It was a foundation, a fresh wave of creative stories. And the titles chosen were very simple because they spoke for themselves, no complications or exaggeration at all. Today it’s hard to choose good titles because our predecessors got first pick of the very simplistic ones.

Let’s not forget James Cameron gave us iconic female characters such as, Ripley and Sarah Connor, Lucas awarded us with my ❤ Princess Leia, and their stories were organic, unique, and most importantly character development wasn’t an issue.

Sci-Fi movies and novels of the eighties had the advantage of being written during an infinite era, where technology was changing, evolving. A time where young people were finding new ways to live. An era that produced geniuses. And a time when culture became as modern as it had ever become. 

As for technology, there were all these perceptions, designs, and predictions of where it could leave us as human beings, hence the fresh concepts of flying cars, colonized moons, and laser-firing weapons. The fact we had to wait over thirty years for VR headsets and hoverboards was a fatality, but hey no empire is built in a single decade. Honestly, I don’t consider those “hoverboards” as real hoverboards. Where’s the hove?

When it comes to this retro electric music, I feel as if I’m lost in space, aboard the Millennium Falcon. Not fighting in any battle, just enjoying the endless starlight sky of…space

The beams, laser sounds, and hymns of other illustrious sounds related to the universe elevate my mind, striking me into trance from where I cannot and will not escape. My body bounces. My fingers twitch as if playing the keyboard.

Synthwave is a retro electronic music genre reviving 80s beats. Its popularity has grown in recent years, and while not mainstream yet, the synthwave has become notorious. The assistance of modern computers has provided retro electronic with the necessary instruments needed to manipulate a more advanced tone, while still retaining its past organic flow. 

A Few Lost Places in History

Beauty, one of the most intriguing yet deceptive things to the human being. The City of Biringan is renowned for its gorgeousness…and fear! A mythical city that lay in the surroundings of the Philippines. Any who dare enter the mystic city become the hunted

Kitezh, a city believed to have been founded by Georgy II, Grand Prince of Vladimir. Known as the Invisible city. In the 13th century the fearsome Mongols heard of the city and proceeded to search for it…

Thule, is largely known, however, it is still not well known if you catch my drift. Associated with Antiquity, modern scholars place its exact location in Norway. But others claim Thule to be either Iceland or Greenland.
The Nazis inserted a heavy interest in the Thule mythology. Hitler believed Thule to be the origin of the Aryan race.

What if I told you of a kingdom in Canada where men of blonde hair in expensive furs rule? Native Americans near the Saguenay River told French explorers tales of gold mines in Canada. Scholars say it was the El Dorado of the North, however explorers found no such existence of a place called Kingdom of Saguenay.

This past month has been full of the days I continually prayed for, where she is living her dreams and basking in endless happiness. Needless to say this woman has never done nothing that DID NOT exceeded my expectations. I have always been left stunned, amazed, and outwitted by her resilience, dedication, honesty, and above all else her ambition. She can be cold and ruthless, but I love her all the same. Julia Walton is a conqueror, natural born leader, hustler, and renegade! #facts 100%

We share a variety of different values, beliefs, and morals, but just as much common traits. Like any true friendship we have had up and downs, trials, and tribulations but remain close. The one thing that’s never really been a problem is the distance, we live hours away and remain as close as two peas in a pod. We inspire each other. We are partners in crime. I pray that in 50 years we are still just as close, sipping margaritas in the old folks home hahaha

I say embrace your inner basicness because you only get one great, basic white girl in your lifetime. Julia’s traits has become mine, I have adopted many things from her such as, coffee, veganism, health, exercise, Vlogging, candle shopping, and much more! I wouldn’t trade any of the experiences she has given me, being her best friend is the greatest gift this universe has offered me. I embrace it.

Renegatus

Previously written in 2010. Edited in under 24 hours, and released from me to you in 12 hours may I present my new anthology Renegatus!! 

Written and translated by me, Timothy Mason, but the events depicted were witnessed by my alter ego, Ravengaddafi. For those who have read A Principality of Bullets you know him as the most infamous historian. 

He is a man of mystery, darkness, and pure cunning. Ravengaddafi is the first scholar, or person for that matter to travel across not only time, but a variety of different universes, galaxies, and dimensions.

So join him on an adventure of four crazy stories of renegade princes and righteous men striving for revenge, conquest, justice, and deception.
Enjoy!

And remember beware, for every hero is a villian, and every villain a hero

Just A Random Thought of Meaning

Know that your only limit is you. No one can limit you and don’t let anyone limit your dreams. And always remember the sky is not the limit, the universe is your limit. But remember the universe is expanding, meaning your dreams are limitless. 🎖🎗

Learn. Grow. Evolve. 😊😁

Your destiny begins on the railway, and ends on the railway, but if you achieve true freedom you never leave the railway. Instead you become the conductor, you become the master of your own fate. Chasing the stars at your own pace, but be weary about time. Time is short, yes, however, don’t rush too fast or too slow. Move at the right time, right pace! Life is chess not checkers 🃏

Your soul and spirit meet on a bridge by the Waterfall, where a duel of fate begins. Do you surrender to divinity or humanity? 🤔

Make Your Own Blessings, Self-Preservation is All About Self! 

If I can enlighten the world through history and story then I consider myself not an artist but a philosopher 📚

We are energy living in a physical place, our glow aka spirit is Eternal, we are just expressing our glow in the human form at the moment.
We Pray to relics, look for divinity in institutions, and confess our sins to men in white collars. We share our secrets with men who consider themselves holy, but isn’t more amicable to share secrets with friends. Or better yet have no secrets, be as open as book. Spread honesty and piss on lies.

Positive energy, honest words, and freedom of institution keeps us healthy, grants us long life, and self stability

The center of everything is realized through knowledge.

Knowledge is only found in three areas: history, literature, and experience.

History shows us the mistakes of the past

Literature shows us how to solve problems through stories

Experience changes our perspective and outlook on life
