This video is total satire, please don't be offended! It was supposed to be light-hearted and funny... and tbh definitely making fun of myself. lol I've watched a lot of people say that edm producers don't have talent or that they aren't real musicians so this was my way of playing off of that. Shoutout to all the hard work home producers do! :D
xo, and Welcome to Level 2,
Happy Wednesday Cyborgs!
Have you ever heard of the saying "once in a blue moon?" It means rare event happening only once in long period of time. Did you know that the words "Blue Moon" came about because of a "second full moon" in a single month's time and only recently held an astrological meaning. In the time of Shakespeare, there would have been no astrological meaning at all! They did use the phrase "Once in a Blue Moon," however, as far back as 1528 or, perhaps even further.
William Barlow, Bishop of Chichester's The Treatyse of the Buryall of the Masse (1528), included a sarcastic reference to a blue moon:
"Yf they saye the mone is belewe, (If the say the moon is blue,)
We must beleve that it is true." (We must believe that it is true.)
Do you believe everything you see, hear, read or are taught? Or do you question further to find out more?
I always question to learn (Jonathan does as well.) That's why in the past year, he has really built on his knowledge of the music business and expanded on his focus of creating new music!
He's excited to share with you his growth as both a singer/songwriter and as a producer. His focus is tight but his horizons are broad. In the next few months he will be sharing with all of you, new music, new videos, and creating more opportunities for you to interact with him and and support him as he takes his career to new heights... like a Rising Eon hahaha (which you can listen to in the video above!)
Kick off your shoes, walk in the grass barefoot and drink in good energy!
PS. Like the "Rising Eon?" Click here to download the song!!!
Happy Sunday Cyborgs!!
Did you know that on January 31st we will be witnessing a Super Blue Blood Moon - the second full moon of the month!!! To me, that's pretty cool because it means that there will be NO full moon in February, this year. However, we will still have a total of 13 full moons by years end.
For those of you who may not know, a Solar Eclipse marks new beginnings while a Lunar Eclipse marks the end of the Lunar cycle as well as growth in our lives. Pretty emotional so if you find yourself more 'moody' than usual, there's a reason!! You can even be brave and look up what it means in your 'Sign.' Mine is Aries and Jonathan's is Virgo.
Speaking of, I checked out a website about astrological signs and it had this to say about Virgos:
"Virgo- With an eclipse in your 12th house you can expect a clear spiritual awakening about the purpose of your life. It might be clear that you have to let one thing go in order to serve that purpose, but it will be worth it."
How cool is that?? An epiphany is definitely happening for this guy! Mine's all about self expression and letting my true feelings known. . . watch out! Hahahahaahahahaha!
Did you know that one of Jonathan's favorite subjects was Astronomy? The Universe and all that it holds, the stars, planets, unknowns and discoveries are so in his wheelhouse of curiosity. All of this explains why he is so into Electro Pop!
One of my FAVORITE songs Jonathan did, was a song called "Galaxy" on his 4th album, "The Space Between," that was released in 2013. Check it out here It's pretty awesome because it's about a relationship that you have no support for- We've ALL been there!
Leave a comment below and let us know what your experience is with the SUPER BLUE BLOOD MOON!
Good Morning Cyborgs! Admin Rob here, once again to bring you some great information about relaxation, ask what you do and let you know some secrets of Jonathan's relaxation techniques as well. Together we can help each other chill a bit and not get too uptight with all that hostility going on in the world!
It's not only important for us to relax in our everyday lives, but it's super important for anyone in a creative space to have the ability to chill when we hit the preverbal road block, writers block, painters block. . . well you get it. I personally like to walk barefoot in the grass while listening to some meditation music. Jonathan on the other hand like to play Pokemon Go or even dance. . . not to mention shopping! Who doesn't love retail therapy!
Relaxation can be in the form of meditation, playing, well, anything that makes you feel inspired! It needs to transform you, take you somewhere else where the real world takes a break from the forefront of your mind. Did you know you can take a relaxing break for as little as 5 minutes? That's about the length of your favorite song - extended version!
If you're searching for some new music, Jonathan just released on his new YouTube Channel, an inspiring and captivating new instrumental titled, "Chaos." You can find it here and let it take you away! Give it a thumbs up and leave a comment!
Speaking of comments, what is YOUR favorite way to relax? Do you have something that totally takes you away from the stress of your day? Comment below and let us know!
In response to the YouTube Adpocalypse 2018, I've given it a LOT of thought about what I'm going to do. I've decided that rather than get down and sad about it, I'm going to change things up! If I'm getting demonitized, what the hell do I care now, right? hahaha My decision may surprise you... and confuse you. hahaha
Admin Rob (Jonathan's new assistant!) here stopping by to say 'Hi' and let you know a little bit about myself!
I am super excited to be working at Level 2 Entertainment, alongside Jonathan. He's truly a great person to have as a boss! He's quirky, funny and very kind! He even buys me a coffee on occasion! I like to surround myself with really cool people who are a positive influence and I really feel lucky to be doing just that,
I worked for Jonathan a few years ago and am so grateful to be back on staff! I love people (you guys,) and I love to be creative and use my writing skills so I'm totally looking forward to bringing everything to the table that I have in my 'fun' toolbox.
It's important to Jonathan and myself that we both communicate with you, who mean the world to us. As I get more and more comfortable with my job, I will be asking for your thoughts on merch items you would like to see in the future. If you haven't already, check out what we have available here!
