The reason why Prince deleted his Social Media Accounts should be obvious to even a fetus.
My Wife and I suggest you protect yourself. You may be a victim and not even know it. Search “Psychopath” and “Sociopath” for more information. Arm yourself with knowledge and awareness. Avoid dangerous individuals and potentially hazardous situations.
Here is the deal Everybody:
We have pulled most of the already released portion of the Library for re-mixing and re-mastering. What we have been working on is deciding on the new release format(s) for the entire catalog. In total, I have over one thousand titles to date. We are keeping previously released “Albums” intact including “World Record” which was released to set a World Record back in 2011.
Since everything will be a digital release, we have been in discussions involving a digital “Multi-Disc” single album format where you could purchase the entire works for a bulk price, but due to the size of the catalog, this is not viable. Another option we entertained was multiple volumes or albums, but from a total bulk pricing standpoint, that also does not make sense. So, we have decided to release each track as a single “Album” and let each retailer decide the pricing.
We have just started releasing titles, so it will take some time until the entire Library of Works is available with each retailer. Please note that some titles may take longer to become available depending on which part of the world you are in. Thank you for your patience and support and we trust you will enjoy what has taken great effort and time to produce for you.
Great News Everyone! At the recent urging by my Wife, I have been writing a New Book in my spare time. The book chronicles my escape from multiple Psychopaths throughout my life and particularly focuses on events from May 2009 up to my final escape, when I met and married my Wife Maria. The book is non-fiction and completely based on true events. The work is nearing completion and will be published as an eBook that will be distributed on Amazon. Price and publish date will be posted publicly as soon as details become available.
This month also marks some changes regarding my extensive Music Catalog. You will notice that some prior releases will no longer be available for purchase as they are being re-mixed, re-mastered and re-released. In addition, all material that has never been released for purchase will soon be available world-wide through your favorite music retailer.
My Wife and I love this quote from Dr. G Simon:
Most disturbed characters don’t hear that little voice in their heads that urge most of us to do right or admonish most of us when we’re contemplating doing wrong. They don’t “push” themselves to take on responsibilities, and don’t “arrest” themselves when they want to do something they shouldn’t do. If they do hear that little voice, they can silence (or “compartmentalize”) it with great ease. But for many disturbed characters, that voice is quite weak in the first place. In the most severe disturbances of character, conscience is not simply weak, underdeveloped, or flawed, but absent altogether. Even the capacity to form a conscience is sometimes nonexistent. Dr. Robert Hare aptly named his book about the most severely disordered character, the psychopath, Without Conscience. It’s hard to imagine there are individuals with no conscience at all. That’s one of the main reasons such people are able to prey upon others. Very few can believe that the person they’ve been dealing with is as heartless or remorseless as they intuitively might suspect.
Welcome to October! Many things come to mind when it comes to October. What most people think of is trick-or-treating, candy and dressing up in wild costumes. Festive Finery and bags of goodies aside, here is a pictorial Top 4 for your October enjoyment!
It will be very refreshing to play the drums again live with my good friends from Air Supply whom I have not seen since the Rik Tinory days. I am also VERY excited to be going throughout the month of September to UOE so I can visit with fellow Warner Bros. Employee Ellen DeGeneres. My Wife has never been there before and she is jumping with joy!
Two years ago in my Hometown of Weston, Massachusetts, I married my Wife Maria. I am truly the most fortunate man. A happy marriage to the perfect spouse is the essence of perfection.

And now for a totally random post:
I love freedom of speech almost as much as I love my Spouse. There are too many whackaloons in the world, and to them I say: If you’re so miserable, then just blow your brains out and get it over with.
Now for some random, awesome images to get the juices flowing, and if you’re offended, I don’t care and you’re too sensitive.
Ah the misinformation of the internet. A search for the origins and meanings of the word (or term) “Lurker” brings up everything but the truth. I (Glenn Scott Davis) first used the word in 1979 at a recording studio. There were people that didn’t belong at the studio because they didn’t work there, didn’t know anyone personally there, were not involved in our works in any manner and had no reason for being there other than gawking. I asked several people who did belong there: Who are the Lurkers? The word stuck and rapidly became part of “Weston Lingo”
I am so appreciative that I “Live The Dream” that my latest release is titled: Living The Dream. Thanks to everyone that helps me live the dream on a daily basis! In other news, the Chick Magnate Video has just hit 2 Million Views! My latest video “In Love” has only been up for a few days and has already been viewed over a half-million times. My Wife and I are both elated and filled with joy that so many of you are enjoying the music and videos. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Top Mistakes Parents Make
This article also relates in many ways not to just children, but grandchildren as well. It is also a widely known fact that women are the worst offenders when it comes to these mistakes.
Here are some signs that you should seek help:
If you took offense to this article in any way, you are in denial and the first step to fixing things is to realize what you’re doing and if you truly want to be the best parent, you will want to change not only for the child’s sake, but for yourself.
With another wonderful Thanksgiving celebrated and a new year right around the corner, I have paused to reflect yet again on all that I have to give thanks for and appreciate. On a constant basis, I am always thankful and appreciative, but this time of the year is especially blatant when it comes to reminding myself of all the joyous aspects that life has bestowed upon me.
The following is a list of what I consider to be the highlights of the year so far:
The Original Video Upload of Chick Magnate has officially surpassed one million views and as you can see above, it has just been added to the International SM Site VK. Thank you!
Billboard: Hello, and thank you for the Interview.
Glenn: You’re welcome and thank you too.
Billboard: How would you like to start this Interview, Glenn?
Glenn: Is it my turn to start?
Billboard: Yes. Say anything you like.
Billboard: Yes, like.
Glenn: “Like” as in Facebook?
Billboard: No. “Like” as in: “What you like”
Glenn: I like music.
Billboard: Do you “Like” Music, Glenn?
Glenn: No. I Love Music. I Love Music almost as much as I love My Wife.
The Most Haunted Place in the World
While it’s possible that there are endless places on earth that are haunted, one place stands alone as the scariest and most cursed; The Highway 192 in Florida. The sheer number of abandoned places and things that dot the curse that is 192 also make it the largest haunted and abandoned thing and place in the Sunshine State, if not the world. The years of decay has taken it’s toll on this once thriving vast collection of hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions, gas stations and other assorted businesses. The memories of men, women and children of all ages frolicking about whistle like a ghostly noise through the palm trees and other flora and fauna that still reside in and around Highway 192.
While many have attempted to dare to enter the areas that comprise 192, only one person has actually successfully been able to live to tell of the infamous and fabled curse that is 192. The man responsible for this epic feat not only lived it, he was gracious enough to actually document it through audio and video. The documentation is undeniable proof that this place exists and that it is in fact completely cursed. This man is the famous, the one and only Adam The Woo. Below is the proof in sound and full living color that offers all who watch a chance to wander through and relive the Curse of Highway 192.
My Father made his fortune in the Safety Products Industry and I worked with him from a very young age up until his passing in 2000. Being an avid yachtsman since a young age as well as working at my Father’s Company, I am all too familiar with the importance of safety, particularly fire safety. I have come up with a state-of-the-art Fire Safety System and have filed a patent for it. My Grandfather invented Playtex Gloves, but never filed a patent and the idea was stolen, so I am not going into great detail for obvious reasons. Once all the legalities are in place, I will be negotiating manufacture with several possible companies.
The system is not limited to Marine use and the application possibilities are virtually limitless. Just about anywhere there are people, or things of value, this system can be used. It will be inexpensive to implement in any environment. In addition to saving lives and property, it will greatly reduce the cost of Insurance on a Global Scale while simultaneously saving Insurance Carriers billions of dollars.

Don’t Touch That Dial!
By GLENN DAVIS DOCTOR G
The music was equalized when it was recorded, mixed and mastered. So why do so many people insist on coloring the sound so much? Personal taste? Poor acoustics? The listener is not sitting where they should be (does not apply to those wearing headphones)? A cobby stereo system? Or is it just habit?
We have all seen and heard it…..the boom-boom-boom coming from the car that is losing it’s hardware due to all the vibration from large volumes of air being moved. With the advent of the “Sub” there has been a sonic revolution of sorts; Woofer Wars. Who will reign supreme could be determined by a decibel meter and a count of how many times the coil hits the stops. The car with the broken glass and missing nuts, bolts and screws could make the win a two-way tie.
Professional engineers, producers, musicians, or even a consumer who is an astute audio purist will tell you that flat is where it’s at. The artist you are listening to most likely wanted his or her record to sound like the listener was right there with them in the studio or on the stage. A great recording should allow the listener to “walk right into the mix”. So why do so many people insist on boosting this or cutting that?
There are as many theories of equalization (WHEN/IF required DURING the actual recording/mixing/mastering) as there are records or artists. At one end of the spectrum are technoids who will tell you that equalization provides you with a systematic method of sound shaping. They will whip out all sorts of books and show you the curves. At the other end stand the knob twiddlers. They’ll tell you that an equalizer is nothing more than a slightly more complex version of the so-called bass and treble tone controls. Keep tweaking knobs till you hear something you like, then stop. Usually the best path lies between these two extremes; I call it “informed” knob twiddling.
First, let’s deal with the imperfect ear. As a youngster, you could have probably heard even a slight breeze blowing in your ears as you walked along, but age and repeated exposure to loud sounds (concerts, machinery, etc.) deteriorates the frequency response of your ears. Whispering “sweet nothings” to your sweetheart during a concert will do you no good. He or she probably can’t hear them. This is why pros let their ears “rest” before doing any critical audio work.
Rule: Pay attention to the state of your ears and hearing. This is the major downfall of the knob twiddler’s theory. Remember that your ears lose bass frequencies at lower volume levels. The fact that everything sounds awesome when you “crank it up” has more to do with psychoacoustics than your skill with the equalizer.
Equalization falls into two general categories: enhancement and correction. Even if you have the perfect microphone in the perfect placement for the perfect performer, when you bring up the fader on the perfect console, you could find that it “needs something”. On the other hand, you may be down to your last microphone-you know the one-that old radio shack house brand that has beer and saliva caked all over it from the days you played those bar and wedding venues. Even in a non-critical position, this mic leaves something to be desired. But what?
In the producers chair, I am often baffled at people who say things like, “I don’t know, sounds like it needs a little 7k” or “give me a 5db boost at 11.5kHz”. Equally baffling are the people who say, “Everything sounds fantastic, just brighten up the lead guitar track and make the bass a tad darker sounding”. As with any foreign lexicon, it’s all in the translation.
The only way to go beyond the simple bass and treble concept is to refine your hearing and break down the spectrum into more defined segments. Bass is 10Hz to 200Hz, low-midrange is 200Hz to 1,000Hz, high-mid is 1,000Hz to 5,000Hz and high is 5,000Hz to 20,000Hz. The hertz (abbreviated as Hz) was named after German physicist Heinrich R. Hertz & represents a unit of frequency equal to one cycle per second. Kilohertz (kHz or k) are regular hertz multiplied by 1,000. On a recording desk, four thousand five hundred cycles per second is labeled as 4,500Hz, 4.5kHz or 4.5k. Kind of makes you want to go back to the lows, mids and highs concept. But wait, you may already know more about this hertz business than you thought.
The American tuning standard is A-440, which is 440 hertz. When a guitarist plugs into a tuner, they tune the E string to 82.41Hz, the A to 110Hz (two octaves down from A-440), the D string to 146.83Hz, the G to 196Hz, the B to 246.94Hz and the high E string to 329.63Hz. If you wish to alter the low end of the instrument, you should be boosting or cutting in the 80Hz-to100Hz area. If you want to bring out the upper range of the instrument, you can boost between 250Hz and 400Hz. You can even go up higher to bring out the harmonics and the sound of the pick on the strings. A gander at an instrument frequency chart will tell you the range of a particular instrument. Full spectrum instruments like the piano can pose a problem though. Piano parts can often cover the entire frequency range, but you can chose the frequency you want to emphasize.
How much equalization should one employ? If you are looking for a “thin” telephone speaker sounding vocal, then you are justified in removing all the bass and low-mids from the part. With amplified instruments you should always try to get the best sound out of the amp before trying to fix it with equalization. Whoever coined the phrase “We can fix it in the mix” was making a joke.
Mixing a record is the most severe test of equalization skills. Blending all of the tracks requires balance and separation. A textbook example of sonic separation involves the kick drum and bass guitar. To be effective, they have to work together, yet they have to be distinct. It doesn’t matter if it’s a song from the Glenn Davis Doctor G World Record Album or something from Elvis, lil Wayne, or anyone else. A great way to solve the issue is to decide what should have the deepest sound in the mix. If it’s the kick, boost the lows and cut the low midrange. This will leave the low-mid open for the bass guitar. Reverse the procedure to obtain the opposite result.
The best way to improve your technique is train yourself to listen harder. A trained ear can easily pick out the deficiencies in a sound and that listener will then be able to take the proper steps required to correct it. Regarding the average consumer of music; I heard the speaker re-coning and windshield repair industries are doing very well.
A long time ago, when the world was new, people used to live and work in the same place. Some people worked at home, some nearby in the village. Children grew up knowing how their families worked, sharing troubles and joys, adventures and routine. People felt in control of their lives.
Then a great magic transformed the land. Called the “Industrial Revolution,” it enticed the villagers away from their homes, brought them to ever-growing cities with promises of excitement and comforts beyond imagining. Instead of working at home, the people learned to work in great factories, to mass-produce all the wondrous inventions of the wizard called Manufacturing Technology (“MT” for short).
As the wizard’s magic grew in strength, some problems began to appear. The cities became more and more crowded. The air filled with fumes. The crowding produced increased violence. Many people began to feel constrained and oppressed, no longer in control of their lives. The wizard’s magic was a magic of increasing scale: Only the big could keep power-big companies, big government.
Then a new wizard appeared, called Information Technology, or “IT.” IT grew at a prodigious rate. IT started giving power to the people. IT let them communicate with each other, even see and hear each other at great distances. IT gave them new tools for thinking, for creating sounds, for creating visions, for creating worlds. In just a few score of years, IT’s magic became the means by which most people were doing their work.
But MT wasn’t defeated by this. You see, MT had captured the hearts and the minds of the people. MT made them think that they had to be where it’s big in order to survive, in order to have all the goodies that MT’s magic produced. They thought they had to “go” to work to go to work. They thought that work had to be separate from where they lived. The concept of BIGness had become the important thing to the people-and not what bigness actually did for them.
But not for everyone. Some people (the others though they were crazy, or weird, or subversive) began to use IT’s magic to restructure their lives. They found that they could work at home again, be with their families, spend time in the villages where they lived, and support themselves as well as when they were with the BIG groups. They found that IT let them regain control of their lives, to learn, to create, to expand. IT started quietly at first, the faint few whispers of the incoming tide of change. A person here and there working for the BIGs started to work at home some of the time. A few used the growing power of IT to start their own businesses at home. As IT’s magic grew, so did the number of people who discovered the old ways with the new tools. They began to build new home lives. IT grew. The number of “homies” (people who worked at home) grew. To millions.
Then one of those homies crowed too loudly. The BIGs became alarmed. They said, “You’re trying to destroy THE WAY! You’re being UNFAIR! You’re not playing by THE RULES! You’re trying to change THE GAME!” They attacked the homie like ratters a rat. You see, they didn’t realize that IT had made the rules obsolete, enabled the ways of work to be restructured.
But the tide of change kept coming in. The smarter organizations adapted the rules to the new ways. The rest of the world started to use IT’s magic to make new nows and new tomorrows. Governments fell. The world became more closely interconnected. The homies began to be in the majority. The cities began to be liveable once more.
And then-they all went down to the seashore and lived happily ever after, right? What’s a news story like this doing with such fairy tales? Let’s get serious!
Information technology is growing in power per buck at about 58 percent a year. IT’s been doing that for countless years. Think about it. That works out to a huge cost reduction for the information tools to do a growing number of information jobs. IT’ll keep doing that well into the future.
IT is the basis for the revolution in music and recording of all sorts: audio, video, written communications, etc. IT’s magic is literally giving power to the people….especially professionals. The music business and recording industry is but two of the areas where this is happening. Right now a low-budget home studio can produce high quality masters. No more $200-$2000 per hour studio rates like back in the day. There are people working out of a bedroom putting out high definition material for release as a feature film or for use as a movie or show on television. Same goes for radio. Others are topping the music charts by doing the same with songs and albums. The few BIG labels left standing today have been doing their recording internationally for quite some time.
Yet BIG can be beautiful. For some things, like collecting massive resources to do well understood or very complicated procedures, or quickly producing large quantities of stuff, BIG can’t be beat. For others, like artistic creativity, there may be a better way. Starting at home.
Here comes the tide.
