Alliance Festival is an annual Christian music charity benefit festival. It is set to take place Saturday, August 3rd, 2013, in McDonald, PA (20 minutes from Pittsburgh). There will be numerous musicians and national headliners all playing Christian based music…..and most of it will be heavy. Procinctu is a proud sponsor of this event.
As was previously written in How Sounds and Pictures Change Our Brain, we need to be aware of everything our minds consume. This especially includes music, and not only the subliminal messaging, but also the obvious message. Exposing yourself to positive lyrics and ‘worship’ music, is a lot more beneficial to you than what you would get from modern pop music. Check the article to see just how destructive other music can be.
Alliance Festival will feature around 50 bands, and you can view them all HERE. But to give you an idea, the lineup includes….
- The Devil Wears Prada
- Demon Hunter
- Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
- The Word Alive
- Norma Jean
- 12 Stones
- Maylene & The Sons of Disaster
- MyChildren MyBride
- Love and Death
- Still Remains
- This or The Apocalypse
- Becoming The Archetype
Does that give a good enough idea?
So come and check out Alliance Festival. If you can make it, say hi at the booth, or just look for me anywhere throughout. Procinctu is the VIP Lounge Sponsor. Get your tickets HERE. And now for the official press release for the event….

Back in April, I had an awesome trip down to Chile. I had wanted to check out the country for quite some time, and the impetus which made me go was the Sovereign Man Workshop. While I still have yet to finish the written recap of the visit, I wanted to bring up one thing (totally unrelated) that I picked up down there. Granted, I could have discovered it at home, or anywhere for that matter. But sometimes, things work out in ways you don’t expect. This thing I’m referring to have found, is the Lifehouse Everything Skit. I’ll first explain how I came to see it, and my initial thoughts.
As it worked out, I was able to meet him on my last full day in the Chile. That was actually pretty appropriate since it acted more as a day of thanks to God for the trip. So hanging out on church grounds, and seeing the ongoing projects of the church, was a great top off for the visit to Chile. We talked faith, culture, and politics…and I was even treated to food. At some point during the day, almost instinctively, the priest pulled me aside to run the Youtube gauntlet. You know how it works. He showed me some lyric videos of Christian pop music and such, and I retorted with the ‘disconcerting’ Christian heavy metal videos. But when he showed the “Lifehouse Everything Skit,” I was thinking, wow!
Lifehouse Everything Skit
At first, I wasn’t sure what was going on, and pretty unmoved by it, but that quickly changed. Here is my range of thoughts during the video:
1:00 – Is he seriously having me watch this?
1:30 – Why is Jesus being such a wimp? C’mon Jesus!
2:00 – Oh, I see what’s going on.
3:00 – Ohhhh, damn.
3:30 – Well, this is pretty powerful.
4:00 – Don’t tear up in front of the priest. Don’t tear up in front of the priest.
4:30 – Praise Jesus!
Really, it was a powerful video. But personally, light rock and easy listening doesn’t agree well with me. And so I wanted to make this heavy metal version of the Lifehouse Everything Skit. Enjoy!
Choosing the music for the Lifehouse Everything Skit (Heavy Metal Version) wasn’t easy. But with so many options, I ended up picking a band I’ve had in heavy rotation as of late, Hope For The Dying. And coincidentally, they debuted their latest album when I was in Chile. So it already had that liberty/uplifting vibe about it to me, since I walked the streets of Santiago while first listening to it on my Ipod.
I was going to use ‘Open Up The Sky’ as the song for the Lifehouse Everything Skit, especially because of it’s ending ‘realization’ scale. (if that makes sense) But I couldn’t ignore all that goes on in the song ‘Visions,’ so I used both. I ended up choosing Visions for the culmination part of the Lifehouse Everything Skit. I did have to manipulate the video a bit, making it faster in some areas, and slower in others. But overall, I think the music fit the video pretty well.
I think the video speaks for itself and needs no further description. So I hope you enjoy and can get something from it. But for the rest of you who find these vocals ‘disconcerting’, I included the original version as well.

Justice is Swerved. The media’s offensive coverage of the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case was itself an injustice. As the months passed from the original altercation, thousands more blacks were slaughtered in the ghettos and beyond, all across America. Where is THEIR 14 months of news coverage?
Truth is, those souls aren’t worthy of the media because the situations surrounding their murders don’t fit the narrative. So because their killer was not a (partially) white dude, do their lives not matter?? Justice is swerved by the mainstream media, the president, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and other race baiters who are hypocrites and only foment hatred. They don’t actually want to bring about real change, because if they did, then they’d be out of a job. Here is my take on the George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin unfortunate reality. But even more so, below you will find the REAL issues, and the REAL solutions.

They say, “Time flies when you’re having fun.” Well we must have been having one hell of a good time, because the midway point of 2013 is already upon us. It’s been several weeks since I last spoke about silver, and a lot of news has occurred since then. This news mostly can be found printed in RED ink. So now that the year is half over, it seems like the perfect time to give an update on silver……here is the 2013 Silver Mid Year Report. Read the rest of this entry »
