A PSA: Don’t Drink Or Do Drugs And Drive (Otherwise, What You Do Is Your Own Business)

“Drunk drivers…

Tonight, I was hit by a drunk driver. It was on a major highway in New Jersey. I’m still shaken up. It’s only apparent to me, as I’m struggling to type this, at the moment. I’m very lucky.

I’m typing this out, right now, sort of as my own therapy, to remind myself that it really happened.

The drunk driver was driving on the wrong side of the highway.

But wait, it’s more fun from my perspective.

I’m in the center lane, doing approximately 65 mph. A semi was in the right lane, in front of me. The semi puts its left turn signal and starts moving into the center lane. That’s too close to me, so I move into the left lane. Suddenly, headlights are coming around the truck and I have two options; turn right, into the semi (that’s a strong “fuck no”) or turn left, into the grassy median, risking guard rail and cement barrier. Grassy median, it was. I start to turn left when the impact occurred. If I wouldn’t have done so, I wouldn’t be typing this, right now.

I was hit on the passenger side. My vehicle rolled at least once. I don’t know. It was about 2:00 am. It was dark. I know, the vehicle ended up on its side. No airbags deployed, that I am aware of.

During this time, I leaned in toward the passenger seat. When the vehicle came to a stop, The driver’s side was on the ground. The passenger side was smashed. The windows were all shattered on that side. The doors were smashed shut. Once I realized that this really happened, I unbuckled my seatbelt and surfaced through the passenger side window. I hopped down and looked around, trying to figure out what the fuck just happened. I saw a couple of cars pulled over. One was definitely the car that hit me. Someone rushed over to see if I was okay and told me how they had called the police. They had been following this person, on the correct side of the highway. They gave witness statements.

The ambulance came and made sure I was okay. To be perfectly honest, I’m extremely shaken, but not a scratch. I have a bump on my right shin. I have a bruise on my left thigh. My lower right ribs are tender. I was shaking glass out of my hair and pulling it out of the crack of my ass. I don’t even want to think about that, ever again. EVer.

They asked if I wanted to go to the hospital. I’d told them no. I probably shouldn’t have. I will be going there in the morning after I wake up. I probably should have the ribs checked.

One thing I will say- I have some pretty bad-ass survival instincts.

Anyway- fucking drunk drivers. Just. Don’t.


I’ve since been recovering, having been prescribed pain killers, muscle relaxers, and high doses of ibuprofen. I haven’t yet picked up any instruments. My wrist is not ready for the bass, nor do I think I’d be comfortable spreading my fingers to play keyboards.

I can sing, though. I can fucking scream- at the top of my motherfucking lungs. I want to- I really do.


You get one chance at life. Take that chance. Tomorrow doesn’t come for everyone.





Introducing Jennifer Stewart

A few months ago my beautiful wife, Jennifer Stewart, had suggested that I listen to a song by a certain Damien Rice, called 9 Crimes.


Well, after hearing it, we decided to cover it and give it our own, special spin:


Jennifer did an amazing job! I look forward to working with her again, in the very near future!

Our cover can also be found on Soundcloud and ReverbNation, right now!

I hope you enjoy hearing it as much as we enjoyed putting it together!

Special thanks to Fabian Morelos (aka Exemia) for the incredible post-production!


A Few Major Announcements

So much is going on, I’m not really sure where to begin!

I suppose, to start, I would like to say that we are excited and pleased to bring aboard Jennifer Stewart into the DJversion666 project! She is currently putting dozens of incredible things in motion. We are all looking forward to the vast number of elements she brings to the table!

Speaking of Jennifer- she and I are just finishing up a cover of an incredible song by Damien Rice, putting our own, special flavor to his song.

Things are going extremely well with the live project! We’re estimating being ready to launch by the end of April. A few venues have mentioned having us. As soon as we are officially ready, I will be reaching out to everyone. Stay tuned!

Another awesome announcement:  I have been asked to cover a song by a German techno/industrial  group for their upcoming tribute album! I don’t want to give too much away, at this time, but suffice it to say I am honored!

I am also looking forward to working with Edit/Erase! We’ve been talking about a collaboration or two for a while now. I believe it’s about time we make this happen!

It goes without saying, I am looking forward to working with the Master Of All Things Audio- The Man Behind The Mask- Fabian Morelos:  Exemia! I know, he’s an extremely busy man, not only with his personal project but he also has this incredible collaboration with the guys from AudioCentesis, known as Aim & Execute (Remember. This. Name)! Know that great things are coming to your ears from this man!

The next DJversion666 album will be more than just me! Yes, I will still be writing the songs, the lyrics, and doing the arranging, but Nathan, Renee, Brian, Jennifer, and myself (along with everything Fabian brings) will be laying down some serious, fucking tracks! This album is going to bring everything we do to a whole, new level!

We are coming. It will be beautiful.
