Feel free to check out these posts. Do you have any favorites? Which things did you like about the Ospreyshire blog in 2019?

DEAR INNOVARE IS HERE! You can stream and buy it now!

It’s finally here!

My first full-length album “Dear Innovare…The Souls Of Ignored Pioneers Shall Be Ignored” finally drops. It’s only $7 for 41 songs. If you pre-ordered it, then you should get the whole album now.

If you didn’t buy it, then please support me whenever you can. Regardless if you do or not, you can stream the FULL ALBUM on my Bandcamp page or this album player on this post. This thing was a fun experimental genre roulette while making songs involving various inventions, artwork, medical breakthroughs, music, film, architecture, and even anime. This is a unified theme of creators who were overlooked for their creations and/or had their works stolen.

Feel free to check out this album!

Unlikely Associations

When I expect flipped chairs and flame wars
I get blindsided by polite responses
I don’t try to start battles
Based on opinions
Yet I become suprised
When olive branches and doves fly around
Perhaps there was more tact than I anticipated
Showing civility despite my own strong opinions or uncomfortable truths
As people actually appreciate my thoughts and facts on various matters

Pathos Formula Wave: One Score of Rage Lyrics

I’m so so sorry for not doing this sooner. I forgot to include lyrics for the last EP I recorded a few months ago. They’ll be on the Bandcamp page and on here if you ever wanted to know what I was saying.

If you do want to listen and/or download at your own price, then you can click here.

Nonet #1: A Friendship Becomes Astray

You wanted the shiniest medals
As you planted a holy facade
Alas, you were so much less
Sorry for believing
And for my silence
Uprooting will
Be at hand
You false
Friend

Nonet #2: Hate as a Trendy Endeavor

Hatred was the quickest endeavor
Draining a county per second
Growing the most toxic prairies
The unsound are exalted
The congregation howls
As exaltation
to trendy gods
Forsaking
Purest
Hearts

Nonet #3: Crimson Stained Flowers

Pearly flowers shower over you
While basking in crimson waters
Some drones have dubbed you a queen
Wearing a defiled crown
Do you understand?
You say you don’t
But you lie
As you
Smile

Nonet #4: Abject Disrespect

I hope a bleak future awaits you
As you survive a great penance
I want you to think of me
As misfortune will land
Abject disrespect
Will come for you
This mirror
Told you
So

Nonet #5: Dog Whistle Language Waltz

Misinformation is your gospel
Dog whistles are your sermons
Someone should have severed your
Loathsome arsenic tongue
So, great architect…
Will your churches
Be rendered
Unto
Doom?

Nonet #6: Not Another Piece of Art Bashing a Jock (Oh Wait. It is. Can You Not Read the Sarcasm?)

This ego and a stadium are
The same size and beckon spotlights
Touchdown minds and field goal hearts
Embossed like big letters
Along with colors
For the home team
Varsity
Buffered
Pride

Nonet #7: Valleys of Endless Pretension (A Post-Rock Fanatic Satire)

Swarthy monochromatic get ups
Scream “I’m a talented composer!”
Drowning in delay pedals
Incalculable times
Pretentious bridges
Turning noses
Skyward and
Faking
Art

Nonet #8: An Expose on a Feedback Loop

You have no light to complain about
The sound of my voice as you scream
Constantly while bossing me
And being petulant
You need to grow up
Stop projecting
All your faults
Onto
Me

Nonet #9: One Score of Rage

Once core of rage under lock and key
Re-contextualized into
An unbound sonic thesis
Despite my placid moods
I’m far too patient
Which was a curse
For being
Silenced
Then

I Longed For Someone Like Me

When I was in front of the silver screen or the tiny screen
When I immersed myself in hardcovers or paperbacks
I felt empty on the inside, but didn’t even know it then
As a child, I was impressionable
The others found their heroes (however fictional)
While I looked for others who didn’t look like me
Grasping for something to boost my esteem
As I died on the inside while being oblivious
The others found their heroes or morals
When they NEVER applied to me
The others assumed I was a villain
Who deserved to be punished at all costs
Even when I minded my own business
No prince, no superhero, no fairy tale protagonist
Looked like me
Years later, I was forced to create my own worlds and heroes
While it was constructive, I wished I did it sooner

Things I Learned from Disney Movies (or How Jaded I’ve Become with Reality and Adulthood)

WARNING: The following poem is scathing in it’s honesty and has elements of caustic sarcasm in it. I’m normally a literal person, but the rare times when I get sarcastic, I’m merciless with it. Don’t expect me to hold back and not just because I’m not a fan of this company.


The Happiest Place on Earth was all a lie in hindsight.
I certainly wanted to be happy and joyful, yet I was never meant to have that kind of positivity. I could die not visiting those castles in Orlando and Anaheim, and I’d be okay with this (Sure, I’ve been to Orlando, but I never went to THAT place).

There were things I learned, but I never realized some of these things until I was in my teens or even as an adult.

I learned that beauty always equals goodness because ugly people are worthless at best or evil at worst.

I learned that happy endings come to those who don’t work hard or work smart. Well, only for certain people, that is.

I learned that originality is a sin, so it’s better to adapt, buy the rights to something or outright plagiarize someone else’s work.

I learned that princes don’t look like me.

I learned that true love is the only things that matters.

I learned that if you’re female, then you better be a size 2 at worst. Being very emaciated or obese is tantamount to being evil for those lacking a Y chromosome.

I learned that wishing is the best way to get what you want. Well, only for certain people.

I learned that fantasy is more important than reality.

I learned that you can sing your cares away because nothing EVER bad happens in musicals (Bjork reference!).

I learned that Africa is more appealing to the animators when there are no humans who look like they are from the continent. It’s a lascivious fantasy for both furries and open racists. Yeah, I said it!

I learned that stories should be recycled for that cash flow.

I learned that poverty and homelessness aren’t really THAT bad especially if you’re a stray animal.

I learned that cultural appropriation and racial degradation is the name of the game although the Polynesian community managed to be taken respectfully though.

I learned that you can’t be a hero unless you have at least one dead parent. I guess broken home lives are better for them?

I learned that life isn’t like the movies and I wished more people would notice this. Not everyone will have the same experience and some are targets of ridicule. I pity those edified by a mouse.
