Update on Music Projects

I think I got back into the music a little too soon, and I'm sorry. After my mom passed away in January after a heartbreaking battle with ovarian cancer, the decision to spend some time mourning, healing, and being with my family was sort of a no-brainer. I took the time I thought I needed and put everything else on hold, and did what I needed to do to take care of me, my wonderful dad, and my wife. When it…

Mom Update: Headed For Hospice

I wrote you awhile back about how my mother recently discovered she had ovarian cancer. I am thankful for the kind words and prayers our family was offered at that time. After several weeks in the hospital, her oncologist has told us that there is very little chance Mom will be able to make it through further treatment. Her reaction to the first round of chemo weakened her so much that she is still in the hospital and can barely walk, and can't negotiate the stairs in her house at…

Mark has penned a new guest blog for The Trenches. In it, he relays his personal experience dealing with some fake conservatives who talk a big game about "changing the culture" but mistreat those who actually want to do so.  In the case of Chris and Dana Loesch, they have long told anyone who would listen that Mark wanted undeserved support in the production of The Solution is the Problem, which was finished to rave reviews without any help. In Why We Fail, Mark fills in the…

New Blog at The Trenches: Deconstructing #TGDN, Part Two

Mark has written a new blog at The Trenches. Part two of his Deconstructing #TGDN series focuses on why he temporarily joined the so-called "Twitter Gulag Defense Network" and how it inspired him to finally leave the old guard of new media behind, and take real culture change to their followers. The response to the Deconstructing #TGDN series has been overwhelmig, as thousands of Twitter users run from the stigma of…
