We created a lot of good stuff.
It was a good run.
But it’s time to retire this entity.
If you’d like to keep up with my new writings, scribblings and other portfolio stuff, check out my new blog at cruzfolio.wordpress.com.
Also, all Cultured Animal videos and music have a permanent home in progress over at the Cultured Animal tab. So thanks to everyone who worked on these projects through the years! And thanks to those of you watching/listening.
All the best,

Pedigree is a marvel to behold
Let me have it right quick
And I’ll be most tender in my heart
That’s when I will soften
And cease to flex
The beating loosens a bit
As if effort is not necessary
Blood need not flow
There’s not much oxygen to process
In that upper atmosphere
Smiles wrinkled on our faces
Yes, it’s been that way for quite some time
They don’t waiver
To the current conditions
Smiles are earth
Moist with rain
Sparring with the wind
To stay in place
And they remember our cadence
Wrinkles guide them back
When we bruise each other
When I was a kid, I recorded pop songs in the basement. Hundreds of tracks sitting in a box that trace characters, sketches and feelings I hadn’t thought about in a while. Instead of writing a daily journal entry, I would hit the record button on my father’s digital mixer. And so now I have embarrassingly beautiful teenage memories in compact disc form. Sometimes unrefined, usually odd, but always honest. There’s a lot of synth layered in there too, Sweet Jesus. Nevertheless, this recording habit made me a better writer once upon a time, so I’d rather these little songs collect dust online than in a box. And why the hell not: I’ll be posting a few of them here. Because internet.
