"These two words, nerd and geek, are frequently used interchangeably. However, this does a great disservice to all nerds and geeks who wear the badge of their respective anti-social lifestyle choice with pride. For this reason I feel that it is of the utmost importance that we correctly define the two terms.

A geek can best be defined as one who maintains an excessive fascination with a single thing or collection of things. I use the more general term thing only because there is a wide range of fascinations available which may qualified as geeky. Some have asserted that the object of obsession must be one that is not considered to be socially acceptable or commonly observed from the majority of inhabitants of any give society."

"The Schemata" by Redhead...new mixtape w/ videos?

It's been a LONG journey for me in the past few months, but now is that time. I'm putting together a new project to be released on October 30, 2011. It's called "The Schemata". It's an autobiographical mixtape where I wanted to discuss aspects of my life for a change. I feel it's important to talk about these things because it allows me to really show that I am who I am, and I don't want to change what makes me special. When you're in the music industry, a lot of times people become skeptical about ideas that are not conventional. They become confused on its meaning, its effectiveness, and if it will translate to others. I'm not concerned about how I'm perceived to others as much as I'm concerned about my own sanity. There's a lot of times where I've done records "because it fits what's going on" (in the music industry), but doesn't necessarily reflect my personality or my talent. I want to atleast have for 1 project, while I'm an unsigned independent artist, that shows that there is still a piece of me that lives on. Everybody talks about a brand that they're pushing, but I'm nobody's slave. A person can't own me. I provide a service, but I'm not the product. My music is the product. As a black man in 2011, I feel that I don't have to explain that difference too much.

What I also learned during these times is revisiting my past skills, such as video directing. I've directed EVERY video that involves this project, recorded and mixed every song, as well as helped in the artwork. I have associates that can help out, but everyone is trying to win, so I learned to be on the same pace and not become dependent. Here are a few of the things released so far:

Shoutout to ALL the blogs who have been posting my material in support of this project. More to come, especially more to come. I plan to be a lot more proactive than I once was. Also, be sure to visit my Tumblr page at http://redheadpg.tumblr.com. I can be able to update that with my phone more easily on the go. As more press rolls around, I'll be able to update this page as well.
