    #1 it makes sense. and that's why Mark Mulligan puts as the first reason in his text the fact that these companies play double agent.

    I think it happens mainly because tickets for high profile artists sell out quite fast. so, even if you're a hardcore fan, you might not be able to buy them the proper way (a good example of this here in Brazil is with our biggest music festival, Rock in Rio)

    People seem to only care when they can't get hold of a ticket, and then instead of scalping the industry they get scalped by scalpers. This is not a case of supply and demand, this is definitely a case of monopoly or oligopoly control. If fans want to pay inflated prices, then give that back to the artist community. This is not about cutting out the middle-man, it is about cutting out the middle-scumbags.

    "GuamBomb; Musical Warrior Frank Diaz"

    WED, 1/25, 8pm PST

    Link to upcoming show:

    What do ya know? A fellow islander on the show? And a Chamorro at that! What a co-inky-dink! Okay, maybe not coincidental but god bless the positive aspects of social media! How we can reach out and "touch" one another nowadays is such a gift. At least it can be.

    Speaking of gifts- Frank Diaz, Pacific Islander from the Northern Marianas and Southern California joins us to share his lyrical talent and story of what inspired him on his journey. We'll also get to hear more about Guam and why Frank was hyped to bring the island culture to the mainstream forefront.

    You're definitely gonna get a "taste of the islands" and "REAL TALK" tonight with GuamBomb on!

    aka "lil guam", "long hair don't care"

    To learn more about Frank Diaz or check out some of his other music, visit:

    I'll be launching a merch store for my DarkScapes designs soon...there are a few things available now at my Society6 page, but it's time for a proper site for the project.

    I used to often post "Random Thoughts" to my blog, but haven't in a while. As I'm sitting here in my studio tonight enjoying a Merlot on a RARE night off, I look around at different projects - music, a film I'm directing, web & UX design, notes from a game video score, even a cryptocurrency book - and I'm in Random Mode, so I wonder: how many of you are (to use Emilie Wapnick's term) "multipotentialite"? I'm curious - what multidisciplinary projects are you working on? Don't be shy - post about 'em! :) Donnie Maynard Christianson

    #6 hey Mark, I just followed you. Dude, you ARE into a lot of different stuff - cool!

    Hmm, I think it depends on the person - I've known people who just do that ONE thing and crush it, but if they try other stuff it doesn't work. And vice-versa. I've tried to just do one thing but honestly I get burnt out - I need the variety.

    So I do think if someone is geared for being a polymath, they'll thrive. Trying to follow a single path can be like a straitjacket - when I was touring full-time, I didn't want to look at a guitar after 9 months on the road, and that's how I got into CG. I didn't love guitar any less, but I needed to express my art in other ways.

    One musician I follow (Leah McHenry) says she "works in seasons"; I tend to do the same thing - breaking from music for a month or two to focus on my web businesses (and of course Dec/Jan is the best time to trade crypto and laugh at the BTC-e trollbox... ;). And then sometimes I just take a few months to work on my film.stuff.

    I'll hit you up on the other social media too (my username is circuitscream)

    #7 Thank you Donnie some of the ground work for the characters is here on beBee for the Silver Guardian and Peace Lords.

    Studies have shown that having a form of spirituality in life actually can aid in being more productive in the workplace as those who do often deal with stressful situations better.

    #5 @Max🐝 J. Carter wow, very cool. I'd love to see those works man. You're doing amazing work - IMHO we could all be more spiritual, and so many corporate environments could use better vibes for sure.

    12/01/2017 #6 Mark Sandusky
    Haha Donnie! We have to connect. We're both "multipotentialites" with the same potentials and interests. For fun, I write, illustrate and animate. I'm also in two relatively successful bands (playing SXSW etc) Outside of that, I trade bitcoin and work as a producer in Los Angeles for live action commercials. The next commercial I'm in talks with is for a point of sale device that accepts crypto-currencies.
    Now I have a question for you - do you think being a multipotentialite is helpful or not? Sometimes I love it, but sometimes I think "man if I just focused on X, would I be more successful?"

    #4 Well Donnie thank you and thank you again for asking. I'm a born Shaman and have had total awareness since birth. I do a lot of working with people in various stages of reaching the proverbial mountain top. In corporate consulting I take spiritual living and put it in corporate speak to create a better work environment.

    The cartoon is going to be an animated series. It's based on a persona I used to use for writing back in my independent film days, The Movie Whore. Film industry people loved the name.

    The script is called The Silver Guardian an is about a dude who keeps god in check and just happens to be assigned to earth in a human body. He is telling his story to a shrink with flashbacks.

    The graphic novel I will publish as it features women characters who are designed to strong characters who are not sex objects and two of them of intergalactic defenders known as Peace Lords. It's set 40 years from now. and the earth is united and defended by the Peace Lords who come from many worlds.

    #2 The idea behind the show is myself and a cohost working in skits and comedy with guests who are out there acting locally to make an impact in global issues we discuss daily.

    Let's see, I have a local community project I am putting together called Bard School to give people the education they can understand instead of only waht they can afford.

    I have a script I am working on.

    I have a cartoon I am slowly working on.

    I have a graphic novel I am developing.

    I have a series of lectures I keep updating.

    I have various Shaman activities I engage in daily.

    I have a radio show I am putting together.

    I write a ton as a blogger.

    Thanks for asking.
