Q:

Regarding Bullying - art that came from it...

Hi there,

I was one of those kids who got bullied in school and now that I'm stable from all that 'fun' i want to share a song I wrote called 'Geek Club' that I think you all may like.  

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6opL2AjCkQ

I also have another tune called 'Bullies' which is from the perspective of the geek, and in true 'geek' fashion, I drop my pick during the performance.  This is the only recording of this song, (soon to  change)

Cheers and stay in touch!

for those of you who didn't get to see the first video I had listen, here's an acoustic (kind of electric - it was an experiment...) version of Geek Club.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPvM43W-C4U

Many of my other songs are listed there too - in fact I'm working on rock-n-roll history, starting with a song called "Bonaparte" - I'll try to get this and many others up the in the following weeks.

Take care all,

Hi Junkyard.Academy,

Cheers to you for expressing yourself through these songs! I will pass them on to some people I know - I think they could truly make a difference in a kids' lives. It helps to know that you're not alone, and others have gone through (and come out on top) of tough bullying situations.

Thanks for sharing!
