Before King Famous, there was a play.
The play had no real setting, it took place in a Black Box. It wasn''t until some time later that the world in the play became much larger, complex, and unpredictable. Before King Famous was named the Musical Warrior, he was an interpreter, rapidly became a punk rapper, was named a shaman, then soldier, then storyteller. He became The Musical Warrior because that is what people named him. King Famous performs with honor and respect for all living things.
While his primary medium of communication is musical theater (because it allows for King to utilize his full repertoire of monologue, poetry, song and dance), King Famous has performed and still performs in any type of venue, at just about any type of show. He works with other artists, producers, and organizations to entertain, educate, and enlighten.
The relationship of man to machine gave birth to King Famous. It was the running rhythm of the machine that evoked the need for dinosaur dreaming, repeated sound, and purity in song from the backpacker.
The rural environment turned micro-industrial town was (is) home. While farmland existed, it was rarely seen, often built on, often destroyed. Haphazard commerce, and space for cars and asphalt were erected, perfected, and then shined and buffed -- one after the other after the other.
Solace was found in the sounds from the classic piano playing by my brother, Brad Scheller.
Everybody has a machine, mom said. I own and operate many, and often feel I am rebelling against my own existence, bred to absorb and take advantage of myself and those around me yet feeling sorry for the fact that I can (and do).
Basic needs stay basic--food, shelter, family, friends, work time, play time--when these needs are challenged by a false encouragement to be "new" and "right", I get confused. I remain humble, my only goal to create positive energy that will benefit any sized audience. The audience can be found everywhere at all times.
So much hinders on my brother, had he not taken ill that day of the concert, I might have not been in the backseat of Rosen''s (Rosen!) car. The whole trip seemed to happen just so I could see that sign "Famous King Pizza." (see comics) It was too good to be true.
Man, machine, local cyborgs--we are operating them so we can make them be more like us so we can use them better. The more they do, the less we do and this is the land. Other plans seem to have roots established within themselves and there is a bubble here--a bubble over Holiday City.
