Jeannie Well first let me say, to answer the question, I'm definitely dancing to the song! The sounds are amazing!! But I also love the humanity feel to it. Love Is honest above everything else. Got to get through to get to it. ❤🎶❤

J.D. a mellow groove to calm the agitated mind. TRJ's distinct chopped vocals blur the line between synthetic and organic as they communicate a mantra from a vulnerable place.

  • Upcycled Cassette w/Artwork (First Run)
    Cassette + Digital Album

    - These upcycled cassettes are between 32-60 minutes. I record this 32 minute album on a loop, so it will keep playing through the whole cassette. However, on cassettes where the album doesn't fit - secret tracks may be snuck in there ;) tee hee!

    - Artwork and labels for these were designed by yours truly and are printed at a local shop in town on FSC certified paper and with acid free ink.

    - Shipping & Handling includes USPS First Class parcel postage, packaging material, and covers the time spent processing the order by Team MC.

    The idea for upcycled cassettes was born because re-using is more efficient than recycling. Many people like music they can hold in their hands (myself included). The most common forms of music for your hands are CDs and vinyl, however these forms of media must be constructed from new materials. I considered CD-RW's, but I couldn't find a version that was stable. Then I thought...what about cassettes?! People have boxes of them laying around! I used to make mixtapes! I love mixtapes! With a good machine, I can wipe cassettes clean and put new music on there!

    And a final FYI - new music can be recorded onto most cassettes (more info here: www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Record-Cassette-Tapes/). Who knows, maybe someday in the future upcycled cassettes will be all the rage and your little cassette will be considered both very useful and in demand. Enjoy!

  • Original Inked Animation Frame (NOT A VINYL)
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    ** ATTENTION ** This is not a vinyl! The only way to include a pre-order of the album with this order is to call it a vinyl, but it's not! It's an original drawing!! Ok, read on:

    In making the music video clip for "Enough Love" - I made so many drawings! Out of those hundred, I chose my favorite. These are the favorites!

    Hand-drawn and then inked with pen and nib on 20lb paper, these are pieces of some old-school, traditional animation magic. Each sheet is 8.5" x 11".

    Each still is an original. The number on the top left shows which of the 13 stills you received and the number on the top right is the frame number (for animation purposes). Lastly, I initialed the bottom right corner of each onel.

    Shipping & Handling fee includes USPS Large Envelope postage, packaging material, and covers the time spent processing the order by Team MC.

about

A while ago, after a long day of physically demanding work at a job that paid barely enough to get by, I was waiting for the bus home. I usually biked 11 miles to and from work, but it was extra late, about to rain, and there was a dangerous bridge I didn’t feel like crossing. I had been waiting for a half hour when someone appeared next to me with a bike.

Another half hour went by and the bus showed up. I let some people go before me - one of them was the other biker. When it was my turn to board, the two bike spots on the front rack were taken, which I didn’t think mattered since the bus was pretty empty and my bike could fit in the aisle. Unfortunately, the bus driver informed me “No bikes on the bus. Next bus in an hour.” I asked him what I could do to get on the bus with my bike, no dice. I told him I would hold my bike very safely, but he didn’t budge.

I was livid. I felt I was being put in danger for some stupid rule the driver couldn't even explain. I gave him a scathing look, got on my bike, and pedaled as hard as I could away from him. I was so mad, I actually pedaled faster than the bus.

When the bus eventually passed me, I flicked the driver off and felt rage run through me. Then immediately, I felt sick. The thoughts in my mind were bitter and toxic. Even though I was pretty sure the driver didn't see me flick him off, I still felt ill.

Then I remembered a practice (I think it's called officially a Loving Kindness meditation) where you can send love from yourself to other beings. So, with each hard stomp on the pedal, I decided to think, "love. love. Love. LOVE." Which soon turned to shouting "LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!" all the way up the rainy street. I was still angry, but after another mile, something in me gently began to let go.

I saw lights flashing far away in the distance. They weren't moving further. I kept getting closer and then I understood: the bus driver had pulled over and was waiting for me, it was about 1 mile before the dangerous bridge.

That was the first time it really clicked for me that love is indeed more powerful than anger or force. Only love makes things grow and bloom. And it's only through love, not fear-mongering or threats, that we can create lasting change in miraculous ways that would otherwise be impossible.

So long story short, I wrote this track when I was feeling lost, angry, confused, and in need of a great comfort. Given what I learned that day on the bike, I filled this piece with the word "love", no matter what the feeling was behind it. So here it is, a mantra in music form. I hope it makes you dance.
