Gothic Fantasy, PaganFolk / Earth Folk... Morrigann and eco-anarchy

(bloggummschmoggumm...its a long one Rob!)

We had a great time in Rijswijk last weekend at the lovely Gothic and fantasy fair in Rijswijk, an event which has grown a lot in the last years and has been a really fun place for us to play for the last 11 years now! 
We met loads of dear friends and fans... we talked much to little with sooo many groovy and lovely people...(there's never enough time eh?) here's some impressions:


-A tiny beautifull girl , just a few years old, in a black dress with ravens wings on her little shoulders ... took both my hands in hers and thanked me for playing her song staring at me with the most intense , earnest dark eyes imaginable... she's called Morrigan ... I was stunned ... can't really explain why that is important to me on so many levels, just trust me it was...
- I was also reminded by an old friend of mine about a conversation I had years ago with him about putting more of our "message" into the song lyrics themselves... (and not just having me talking for hours on stage to explain what the fuck we mean with our life style and PaganFolk musick) ... well Alex "wyldwood radio"..the new CD "EARTH WARRIOR" will see that suggestion put into action in a big way! 
-and I met a very young ,utterly cool looking activist called Damien (like my son) who had been demonstrating against Monsanto and its evil practices... that's so cool!... that gives me hope!... because... I'm sorry guys but this has to be said... the last few generations have produced so many spineless consumers that I was getting really worried about the ability of people to actually get out in the streets and do something had been lost to the human race...
Hearing Damien's story reminded me that it's not too late for the human race, there are younger cleverer monkeys on the planet now who are already a lot wiser than us older monkeys... I realise that it's so important to keep on warning people about the fact that there is a WAR on NATURE going on at the moment (cleverly disguised as a war on practically everything ranging from fictional terrorists to drugs ) and we are all free to choose what we do to decide the outcome of this war...

do we stick our head in the sand? , stand on the sidelines and watch as the defenceless biosphere is being stripped to it's bones by insane and powerhungry corporations sponsored by our own governments?...

or do we take action into our own hands?.. do we rebel against those who would sacrifice our world and the future world of our children to appease the hunger of a handfull of too rich shareholders who really do NOT need any more power or money?

OUR decision is clear, I've been an eco-anarchist as long as I can remember,I'm connected to the land, I have no choice...
and as a band , We are OMNIA, we are Earth Warriors, we honour our ancestors, we honour the living earth... we fight for our brothers and sisters in nature... and as we do so, we become free...

Greenthingz and in the future... one day...peace 
My respect to you all Shaman SteveSic

ps: I didn't have a picture, so I re-used this one I took last year... tits an' skulls... now that's Gothic art!
