SPECIAL NOTE:due to technical issues, the old postings from Ankhabar News have been moved to this page. The old blog is down and will be replaced soon. Enjoy reading past news from Ankhabar. The Webmaster, 12-22-10.

Anyone who is frequenting this site may notice some changes. It's time for change. YES WE CAN! lol...Well I've never blogged on here really but I think I might start to..Like water passing down a stream, relative to the things it affects, time seems to stand still. It is always "now".Everyday is "today". This moment we exist in, is the only moment we will ever really know. And we really don't know anything about it. All the world's geniuses and scientists still can't tell you what the meaning of life is, why we are all here, or what it all means... Maybe that isn't the answer though. Maybe the answer is in the question itself.Embrace that darkness. Treasure the mystery. Enjoy the human experience as it is...I want to tell you that I am done looking, I've given up, surrendered, and am going to just go on and live my life the best I can, so so should you. But that would be a lie... I'm never going to give up, and neither should you!peace,anx'

"'Tis the last rose of summer..." - Sir John Stevenson

Today is the first day of autumn. The autumnal equinox, to be precise. Astronomically-speaking, the equinox is more than just a box marked on a calendar or the start to fall. Astronomers define the autumnal (fall) equinox as the moment when the Sun crosses the Celestial Equator, heading from the north to the south. And what is the Celestial Equator? Its just the projection of the Earths equator onto the heavens. As the Earth rotates, the Celestial Equator appears as the midpoint of the skys motion...
So, I feel it's time to celebrate. Summer is over. September swept in and whisked me away with it's seemingly endless dry, cool days. Times are changing. I have to remain hopeful that they are changing for the better. Progress has been made; and I can seem to see a bit of light shining through at the edge of the woods.I'm have uploaded the release of "canfour" onto itunes-should show up on the store between now and November 30th.. It is a collection of odds and ends that have not made it onto any major release, but are tracks I enjoy and I hope everyone else will too. It should be available on itunes, Rhapsody, and eMusic within the next few weeks.Peace, Love, and Happiness!-anx

AMAZON MP3 and has been released on iTunes MP3. Compact Discs are now available - order form on the right. ---------------->More music on the way from RPD- a new 6 song EP has been recorded in Madison (at Madison Media Institue) and is scheduled to be mixed in January. Anthony Whitehead is the engineer and co-producer and he also helps out on some bass tracks. Anthony Brown plays drums AND guitar on this, changing it up a bit.All is well out here in space, it is quiet as usual. I hope everyone in every walk of life enjoys the merriment of this cold and wretched yet somehow heart-warming season.Stay warm, folks!-

'Illinois Earthquake and Doomsday Dreams' Around 4am CST last night there was a 4.3 (updated to 3.8 ) magnitude earthquake about 50 miles west-northwest of Chicago. That is quite far from me (in Milwaukee, WI) however I think it woke me up this morning. A similar earthquake took place in April of 2008, which has got me questioning the media calling it "rare".I vaguely remember waking from a dream in which I was having the back of my head drilled into. That is a rather uncomfortable thought. Perhaps it was a small bout with sleep paralysis, something I have suffered from since as early as I can remember. I do not remember waking up afraid and going back to sleep, but I do remember seeing where the foot of my bed should be - there were white walls. I do have white walls in my apartment so maybe my brain was just mixing up images in my proximity, but at any rate it is all very strange. I also remember a voice speaking to me within the dream, inside my head. It told me things, things I have heard before - at the time it all made sense.The usual "you are one of a select few chosen to convey the messages of your world's demise" routine. Of course, this could all be suggestive thinking. There was that drill in "The Fourth Kind" movie... And I've been reading a lot of Project Camelot stuff and Alex Collier. Maybe I should take a break, hehe. Also last night a local TV station aired a Star Trek: TNG episode where Geordi gets abducted by Romulans and is mind-controlled through his optical-cortex implants. Damn Romulans. So no wonder why alien abduction and mind control were subconsciously spinning around in my mind whilst I slept.Then, I was reading the news this morning online regarding the IL quake, and I came across a comment on a local news site, story, which was in all caps and which I see now has curiously been taken offline.I will have to recap from memory - Basically the commenter said that she woke up at 6:30am because she had a class at 8am and looked at her phone and saw three missed calls from her mother around 4am - she knew something was wrong so she called her mom. She had just awakened from a dream in which the world was ending. (I think she spelled it "endid" hehe.) But anyways... she also mentioned it was strange the quake did not wake her: it woke everyone else in the house up but not her. "The dream must have felt it: maybe that is why I had a dream about the world ending."Strangeness. I wonder.. Mind Control, HAARP, 12th-dimensional beings peering down through all the lower densities? What's going on here? Is it all coincidence? There is something happening either to me or to this world (or my world, my reality) that demands a really good explanation.I want answers. I probably won't get them until I die but I want them now!In other news, musical releases (rock!) are coming soon from Rose Pedal Division... Keep an eye on this site for new announcements.-anx'
