It has long been our desire to do a bang-up recording of music we've been working on for a long time.  In the 22 years we've been writing and playing together, we have yet to get there.  Ideally, some interested party with good connections in the music business would partner with us in making that record happen.  Failing that, we would sponsor the recording ourselves.  Toward that end, we hoped that visitors to this site would help contribute to the cost of that effort by downloading tracks.  More importantly, downloads would give us the moral support we needed to feel confident enough to go ahead with that project.

In reality, precisely the opposite occurred.  We lost money, paying to keep the download option active and the failure of the effort affected our confidence in a profoundly negative way.

We gave it five years, and in that time, we earned precisely $7.20.  Not even appeals to friends and family made the slightest difference.  At the same, the option for others to download was costing us $10/month and countless hours of ad-formulating in an effort to try to stimulate down load sales.  To say that the download option was a abyssmal failure is a flagrant understatement. 

To the pitiful few who did, actually, exercise the option, we'd like to say a heartfelt 'thank you'.  Your generous support did far more than just add some change to our pockets; it kept our spirits up, which was more valuable to us than you can imagine.


If the authorities who're investigating Daniel Fernandes Rojo Filho are right, he is a “key link” in the cash laundering chain used by the Sinaloa Cartel, stated Yadira Galvez, a safety analyst at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).Apparently, this Brazilian businessman is nicely positioned as being a collaborator with the Sinaloa Cartel,” Gálvez stated. “The operations from the Sinaloa Cartel might be adversely impacted if the authorities carry on to capture (high-ranking) associates like El Chap and if they penetrate the monetary structure from the cartel. This might undermine the power of the Sinaloa Cartel. Cash laundering allows the Sinaloa Cartel and other transnational criminal organizations to make use of funds produced by unlawful activities to buy weapons and also to bribe corrupt officials, the security analyst stated.

Unlike El Chapo Guzman, who was seldom seen in community and never photographed throughout his years around the operate, Daniel Fernandes Rojo Filho made no attempt to maintain a reduced public profile. On websites and on social media he posted many pictures of himself posing beside luxury vehicles and private airplanes. He also designs himself as Brazil’s “chancellor” within the U.S. His website,, is titled “Brazillian (sic) Chancellor to U.S.A.,” and describes the chancellorship’s function as “a various educating and learning community that produces, discovers and applies understanding to improve the health and well-being of Brasil and also the globe.” The “chancellor” title is actually an empty honorific bestowed by a private Sao Paulo cultural and business association which has offered similar titles to a host of company and enjoyment figures. The “chancellor” title has no formal Brazilian government link. No one seems to care that he does not have any distinct business passions besides to advertise occasions, that are widely publicized in celeb and lifestyle magazine Caras. click on to get much more information on dfrf enterprises llc

It’s Not Freedom to Do Whatever Makes us Feel Good!

Don DeVlieger Jr

7/4/2015 – Independence Day

This is a revision of an article I wrote on March 22, 2013. That was titled ‘Freedom, I Can Do Whatever I Want Now!’

In March of 2013 I posted this comment on my personal Facebook page: (reworded slightly)

‘Are there boundaries for freedom? Can we live any way we want and declare that, that is freedom at its core? This is a serious question! One party is pushing the boundaries in the name of tolerance. The other is being labeled freedom killers for understanding the limits and pushing back. There is a right and wrong way here friends. All cultures in history that fell apart did so because they refused to understand this as America is now.’

I was listening to talk show host Rush Limbaugh and here’s what he said on the topic of freedom, specifically, here, on gay marriage: (from the actual transcripts 3/17/13)

This issue has now catapulted to the top seemingly of everybody's list. It's stunning the way this has happened. In the millennial generation, 25 and under, it's all that matters; gay marriage. Young conservatives 30 and under, 35 and under… Gay marriage, [is] all that matters. People are willing to leave the [Republican] party if the party doesn't change its mind, and you know how it's happening? Not just on the basis that love is a wonderful thing and who are we [conservatives/republicans] to say somebody could or could not love somebody [of the same gender].

Seems like I've waited a lifetime for this to happen. Strange how a vague idea to go find solitude and write songs on a tiny Island in Croatia has become The Al Goodwin Band. This will be special, a lot of you know I recently lost my brother and my relationship broke down. Guys like Steve, Roy and Dave were there for me. Once again music has saved me and directed me.
Come and see us perform our debut show, love to see loads of you there.
Love and music, Al x

You Judge Me

by starla angus on 15-Jun-15

My Fine Music-kins -- One time I worked on a movie set and I was cast as a homeless person -- I mean I really looked the part.  We were working on location and not the studio so I had to use the bathroom at the Long Beach Convention Center.  When I went to use the bathroom I could not believe the reaction from people passing by me.  Most people would hang their head down and walk on the farthest side away from me -- no one would make eye contact with me.  Why are so many of us so quick to judge someone just by the way they look -- we should look beyond clothing, skin color, age and gender.  All that really matters is the soul.

I just released my latest song “You Judge Me” and that’s what it’s all about -- Hope you like.     Peace, Starla 

What's Real

by starla angus on 22-May-15

Commercials first started airing on television to cover the costs of producing a show because television was FREE.  Now TV ain’t free anymore, it costs a whole lot of money and the commercials are still there.  In fact, last night I turned on the show CSI: Cyber and timed the commercials and guess what -- in this 60 minute show there was 18.5 minutes of commercials!!  That’s OVER 30% of the time -- time to send you repetitive messages to Buy, to Spend, Spend, Spend -- often on stuff you can’t afford.  There’s a fortune being made at the expense of our free will.  If the commercials on TV or radio don’t get us, how about the spam we get everyday or ads on your cell phone, tablet or social media -- the relentless phone calls by marketers -- all this is what made me write this song and make this video “Stay Out” -- I mean, are we turning into a society of materialistic technologized puppets who’ve lost track of what’s real.    Peace, Starla

Life is not a static phenomenon.  To the human individual who strives continuously to establish something enduring and dependable to use as a fulcrum, around which an orderly and dependable set of daily doings can be arranged, the allure of the elusion/illusion of certain kinds of permanence – health, vigor, financial sufficiency, favored pastimes, friendships, love relationships, social standing, political balances, intellectual assets, et al – is forever present, and yet, forever out of reach.

From the moment of the advent, in this dimension, of the initial massive flood of quanta that led to the Universe we see now, every form of energy - whether bound, as matter, or free, as radiation – has been in some state of movement, relative to all other parts within the whole.  Even things that look permanent, like gold and platinum, are part of bigger things whizzing through space, whose spatial relationship with other big things is always changing.

To most people, what the exact relationship between heavenly bodies might be, at any given moment, is not something you should be concerned about.  Gold and platinum objects certainly LOOK permanent and static to a creature whose useful time span rarely exceeds 100 years.  Why not try to establish something similar in one’s life circumstances?

Well, to start with, it’s unnatural, and since we are particles of Nature, itself, patently foreign to our very being.  Indeed, an obsession with the idea of becoming secure by trying to inhibit and control change in life can be a very pathological thing.  One need only contemplate what such an obsession in the Kim dynasty has done to North Korea to get some idea of what horrors that obsession could have created if the Axis Powers had won World War II!

Up to now, this year was not a good one for precipitation.  There was less overall snow than usual and it did not get as cold as we had been led to believe it would, based on the prior experience of long-term locals.   The two small creeks that come down from the mountain and run through town had diminished to a trickle.  Groundwater reserves that supply the creeks had been drawn down below normal for the year.  The general consensus was that we were almost certainly in for a bad fire season, with lots of newly-killed trees to feed the blazes that invariably follow the electrical storms of late summer.

Between the two of us, the semi-serious mantra of the day - every day - became, "Let there be rain!"  What we were imagining was not one of those ephemeral little showers that occasionally sweep over town, but something solid and sustained to hydrate the soil under the lawn, right down to the hardpan.

So, on Monday afternoon, as we were driving back into town from having shown a visiting couple, who had been impromptu overnight guests of ours, a property for sale on the south slope of the middle fork of the John Day River, and the skies over Long Creek Mountain started to fill with undulating banks of clouds, we were moved to posit that our invocation was about to be answered with, at least, a good shower or two over the coming night.  But, by next morning, it still hadn't rained and we thought that, perhaps, we'd been teased by Nature once again.

When I was 18 years old I got into a horrible car accident. I was riding shot gun and the guy that was driving ran into a big tree. I went through the windshield, hit the tree and bounced back onto the front seat of the car. The guy that was driving ran away and left me there and I remember waking up and I was lying on top of all this glass. I was in shock, scared and very cold. The paramedics showed up and I was so glad to see them. They comforted me and told me everything was going to be alright. I had to have over 50 stitches on my forehead and the surgeon said it was amazing I survived.
This is why I wrote this song “Angels On The Run”. It’s one of my earlier songs but I just made the video for it. Firefighters and paramedics should be appreciated for the risks they take and the comfort they provide.

Tis the season to go a-hunting - mushrooms, that is.  Well, we looked for hours in the woods adjacent to county road 3945, to little avail; just a box full of Russulas we couldn't get a solid ID on (russula mushrooms are a big family, with a large variation of edibility that ranges from delectable to mildly poisonous).  Coming back, we noticed a great many discarded cans along the roadside.  It's a twisted irony that this area is celebrated as being so close to nature, which it is, while being regarded by those who use its back roads as little more than a giant dump.  You think picking up cans is easy?  Quite the opposite.  You have to get out of the car, pick up the offending item, shake off/out the dirt, put it in the trunk and get back in the car.  Then you drive another fifty yards and do the same thing, all over again.  More often than not, the container is down some steep embankment, strewn with boulders and woody debris.  One of us would drive while the other collected.  After a couple of miles, we'd switch.  We did about ten miles and then quit.

That wasn't the end of it, however.  These geniuses tend to want to finish their beers by crushing the can, before tossing the unwanted evidence of in-vehicle imbibing out the window.  This makes it hard - if not impossible - for the return machine to read the bar code on the side of the container.  If it can't validate the container, you don't get credit for it on your redemption slip (usable in the store as cash).  So when we got home with our 250, or so, containers, we first had to clean and unbend them before they could be redeemed for - wait for it - a nickel apiece.  Right now, we're completely without income of any sort, so the nickel looks OK to us, when added to the incentive we feel to leave the world a better place for our having been around.  Just about anyone else, however, is going to pass up the opportunity of getting a nickel for a can that has to be collected, cleaned, unbent, transported to the supermarket and run through the machine so you can get a token that needs to be redeemed at the checkout stand.  Most people are viscerally averse toward the idea of being induced to do the right thing for insultingly small change.  The standard response is,"I've got better things to do with my time."  As far as a recycling program is concerned, the abyssmal results speak for themselves; it's a stupid system.  Take away the cheesy deposit refund and it becomes a simple matter of handling one's recyclables in a responsible way - the way people in Seattle do it, where residential recycling rates now approach 70% of the waste stream.  The psychological implications of the volunteer system are subtly complimentary - it's expected that you will respond positively to the opportunity of being able to recycle, because doing so is better for society than chucking the stuff into a can headed for the landfill.  Being the upstanding type you are, you will find the expenditure of a little closer attention to your disposal habits no problem; in fact, quite the contrary.  Oregon's system, on the other hand, suggests the complete opposite.  The message is a subliminal backhand - not lost on anyone with an IQ above 100 - if you're not being held to that little bond called the container deposit, you lack the attributes needed to recycle of your own accord.

#OH_NO!!!!!!! SPICE DIANA THE FAST RISING STAR QUITS VOCAL POLICE. Spice Diana,the quickly rising star of the 'Onsanula' fame has quit Maro’s singing camp 'Vocal Police'. It is just a few months since she got signed to the group but she came out to make her voice clear about her action to leave the group and Vocal Police overall manager Xavier Solomon came out to say: "On behalf of HUMBLE MANAGEMENT LTD I officially let it out to the public that singer Spice Diana is no longer under our management. You can now contact Spice Diana on her personal number for business." Reports making rounds state that the singer breached her contract with the management after she failed to co-operate with the manager on business terms and shunning show she had always been booked to perform on a couple of occasions. Spice Diana is no stranger to all this since she was earlier signed to Kalifah Aganaga’s Twinkle Star Agency before she quit to join Humble Management.
