Persecuted Christians around the World.


Please check outΒ Open DoorsΒ who help Christians in trouble. You sign up for free information and can write cards to imprisoned believers. You can also donate. Small amounts make a huge difference. It is quite shocking to read about the suffering these people of faith have to endure, especially since a lot of these stories are kept out of the mainstream media.

I didn’t know for example that Egyptian girls risk being kidnapped by Muslims if they are Christian. They get approached much in the same way as we’ve seen Muslim men do over here in England – with so-called grooming; here in Europe girls end up being pimped out by the guy they thought was their boyfriend, while girls in Egypt think that they’ve met their future husband only to be forcefully converted and married off to someone else. A grim affair indeed; intended to bring shame and humiliation upon Christian families.

There are also stories of minorities within minorities such as Rohingya Christians, who are never really mentioned by anybody. Persecuted Christians seems to be largely a non-topic, with former Muslims turned Christians an even greater non-topic….This global issue has thankfully been mentioned by US Vice President Mike Pence (which I’ve mentioned before), even England’s Theresa May lent her voice during her Christmas message and met with representatives from Open Doors, etc; Hopefully we’ll see a change in the popular narrative as a result? One can hope.

Grizzly tales are shared within the pages of these magazines from communist countries such as North-Korea and China, yet Muslim majority nations appear to be the greatest offenders when it comes to intolerant, violent, persecution of those that they disagree with. Which is particularly interesting when bearing in mind that many of these Islamic territories used to be Christian once upon a time, even Jewish in some instances (which I’ve mentioned in another entry).

It is obvious that there are many tragic fates that are being kept away from the public light, which is a great shame. We should remember these people and their stories. It is even better if we remind them that they are not alone! Sign up for Open Doors’ monthly information package if you are curious and want to help; it’s free!



My Album Is Still Charting after over 2 weeks on the Amazon charts! :) Thanks!


On the 28th of January I was overjoyed when I saw that my classical album had hit the bestseller list once again, both in classical romantic and easy listening! It peaked on #2 from what I could see, but since the charts are updated every hour, it can easily be missed if it goes to #1, unless you stalk your own releases.

My album has continuously been charting since its release in December 2014, which makes me extremely happy! Usually a release will experience sales when you as an artist receive press exposure, play gigs and release new videos. So the fact that the album keeps on charting without any press buzz at the moment, gigs (I’ve been ill for a year) or new videos is crazy! In 2016 I also experienced that my music video for Paganini Cap. 24, went viral for the 2nd time, after a guitar site in Mexico posted it on their Facebook.

Whenever people come across my work and it is shared it is obvious that there is great interest for it! I’m looking forward to release new music. Right now I’m happy to be recording again! Thanks a lot to those who pay for my work and let other people know about what I do! As an independent artist I really appreciate all support! If you want to read about my Major Label experience in 2016 (the secret project) + my health (why I’ve been “gone”) you can read about that on my website right here:Β Commandermusic

Thanks again to those who support what I do! Make sure that you check out my Amazon bestseller books and previous releases on my website. Everything can be found there. ❀

I first released my 1st Children’s book in early 2014, after missing the Christmas rush due to CreateSpace dragging their feet – sadly.

The book received little to no exposure besides my own social media and this interview right here:Β The Freezing Snowman.

Fans would buy signed physical copies directly from me, but on Amazon and Kindle it looked pretty dead. So you can imagine my surprise tonight when I saw that it had finally charted! Once again I’m incredibly grateful!!!!! A huge thank you to those who buy my work, and if you’ve missed out, then make sure that you check it all out πŸ˜€ ❀ Thanks again & God Bless!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When You Think You Are Healthy ….


Yes; I’ve written about the problematic nature of micro plastics and thought to myself that I would try to separate myself from this carcinogenic heresy.

Apparently this is easier said than done as plastic permeates all aspects of our convenient, civilised, societies. The picture on top of this entry perfectly illustrates the macabre comedy of the situation: behold a gluten-free, tree-hugger-friendly, lactose-free, over-prized, politically-correct loaf, wrapped in *drum roll* plastic. :/

I guess I’ve realised that the only way to fight this insidious invention is to grow your own vegetables, hunt game, and/or keep farm animals, while making every meal from scratch. Considering how quickly it is possible to devour cheese and crackers, sandwiches or chips for an instance, I don’t even want to think about the amount of work that would go into such an endeavour.

Respect to our ancestors who actually had 6-7 kids on average, while running households without any of our modern appliances, not to forget looking after the farm while the man was out fighting whomever.

Yes our societies are convenient, but this convenience is creepy. Now that I’ve been made aware of that plastics leak into our food and water; I have a hard time not noticing it. Our parents did not grow up with it the same way we Millennials have done, so I wonder what people will say about the plastic obsession in the future and whether or not it will all be banned. :/


Ancient Greek Myths – The Universe, The Gods, And Mortals told by Jean-Pierre Vernant.


Those who’ve experienced the elementary education offered in Southern European countries can consider themselves lucky, as you really get an introduction to the “Western Civilisation” perspective, rather than the post-modern version void of “the classics.” I remember how we had several volumes of history books for each school year, thick books as well, that offered way more than what my peers and relatives were presented with up North. I recall that the Italian public school system was four years ahead the Norwegian one which is quite something to think about. Even though that was the case there was little that was given away when it came to WW2 and these type of things, probably because of Italy’s role, I can only assume.

If you find yourself in a similar situation to mine, there will be a need for a brush up at one point or the other, which is precisely why I decided to check out the Greek Myths once again.

Some of it made me remember, some of it was new. It was an interesting read and a reminder of how people find new ways to express the same ideas and concepts. The idea of a death ray, for example, is nothing new, as “War of The Worlds” echoes the evil Cyclops who can grill you with their eye, the same can be said of Maleficent from Β “The Sleeping Beauty” , which brings to mind the story of the Golden Apple, thrown into the midst of a party by a disgruntled entity who was not invited, (indirectly or directly depending on how you want to look at it,) starting or laying the foundation for the Trojan War.

Jean-Pierre Vernant is an extremely gifted writer, the preface was stellar and the main text was impossible to put down. I would highly recommend this work!

It is especially interesting to notice how women are being portrayed. There is this popular myth out there that Christianity was created to oppress women in particular, like a vicious plot, since women were empowered under paganism. However, it certainly doesn’t come across as such, when reading how “sexist” the Greek Myths are/were; with the first woman being practically blamed for everything, much like Eve in Christianity. I have not read the Norse Myths yet, but female characters are apparently severely sidelined with male entities of war taking centre stage. This is of course very interesting when thinking about modern narratives…..I’m assuming that our current age of egalitarianism is unprecedented; at least that is the impression I have as of now; but I might come across something that will change my mind in the future.

Here are some cool quotes from the work; as always: I choose to highlight what I consider to be of interest, it is always best to read the original text in its entirety….

How women are described in Greek Mythology.

“Now, the stories show this Pandora, like her whole genos-the whole “race” of feminine women who descended from her – with a particular characteristic: She is always dissatisfied, demanding, self-indulgent. She is never content with what there is; she wants to be sated, surfeited.”

“…Pandora has a voracious appetite, she never stops eating, she must always be sitting at the table … But any household with a woman in it will develop that insatiable voracious hunger. In this sense the situation is similar to what occurs in beehives …”

“Similarly in the human households, on one hand there are the men, who sweat over the fields, break their backs digging the furrows, tend the grain and then gather it; and on the other hand, inside the houses sit the women who – like the drones – Β  swallow up the harvest.”

“Not only does she swallow up and exhaust all the resources, but that is precisely a woman’s main reason for seducing a man: What she’s after is the barn … she sings the young bachelor her big seduction aria because she actually has her eye on the grain stores. And every man – like Epimetheus before them, all agog, transfixed by her looks – every man falls captive.”

“Indeed, woman, the wife, is a fire burning up her husband constantly, day after day, desiccating him and making him old before his time.”

“If a man marries, his life will pretty certainly be hell, unless he happens on a very good wife, which is extremely rare. Conjugal life is thus and inferno – misery after misery. On the other hand, if a man does not marry, his life could be a happy one: He would have his fill of everything, he would never lack for anything – but at his death, who will get his accumulated wealth? It will be scattered, into the hands of relatives for whom he has no particular affection. If he marries it is a catastrophe, and if he doesn’t, it’s another kind of catastrophe. Woman is two different things at once: She is the paunch, the belly devouring everything her husband laboriously gathered at the cost of his effort, his toil, his fatigue; but that belly is also the only one that can produce the thing that extends a man’s life – a child.”

The greatest threat to men:

“Throughout the long journey to follow, at every moment, behind all Odysseus’s adventures with his companions, this forgetting – the erasure of any memory of the homeland, any desire to return to it – forgetting is the constant danger, the evil.”

How the mob is described in Greek Mythology.

“Men make too much racket. There is the ethereal, silent realm where the gods withdraw to think and gaze upon one another, and then there are these humans, jumping about and agitating, shouting themselves hoarse with quarreling. So from the gods’ standpoint, a good war every now and then solves the problem: back to peace and quiet.”

“… the gods shift over to men the responsibility for decisions they shy from, the same way they sent them the misfortunes or baleful fates they wanted to avoid for themselves.”

How the Greeks identified gender….

“He sees some fifty girls there; Achilles does not stand out among them. Odysseus opens his sack and displays cloth and needlework, clips and jewels, and forty-nine of the girls crowd around to exclaim over his trinkets. But one of them hangs back, indifferent.

Odysseus then takes out a dagger, and that pretty little girl lunges for it. Outside the walls a battle trumpet blares: panic in the women’s quarters, the forty-nine girls dart away with their bits of frippery, while just one – with a dagger in hand – heads for the marching music.

Odysseus has unmasked Achilles just as Nestor unmasked Odysseus – and Achilles in turn is ready to go to war.”

“Identitarians” Β according to the Greeks:

” … Those who embodied the unconditional attachment to the unchanging, who proclaimed the need to preserve traditional values against whatever is other from themselves, against whatever questions them or forces them to see themselves differently – these “identitarians,” the Greek citizens confident of their superiority – are the very ones who topple over into absolute otherness, into horror, into the monstrous.”

Just like the Vikings described men of the East as effeminate, well so did the Greeks.

” … Pentheus harbours the idea that a monarch’s role is to uphold a hierarchical system in which men take their proper place, women stay at home, foreigners are not let in, and Asia – the East – is considered to be populated by effeminate folk in the habit of obeying a tyrant’s orders, whereas Greece is populated by free men.”

How feminists are described in the Greek Myths…

” His mother snatches up her son’s severed head, sticks it on the tip of a thyrsus, and marches about in delight with the thing, which in her delirium she imagines to be the head of a young lion or bull impaled on the end of her pike. … she boasts of having been hunting with the men and like a man, of showing herself to be even better at hunting than they. With that mob of demented, blood-spattered women, Agave goes over to Dionysus, who is still garbed as a priest.”

How Warriors are described by the Greeks:

” Cadmus does as instructed … sows the dragon’s teeth. Hardly has he finished than from each tooth springs up a warrior – already full grown and armed in military gear, with helmet, shield, sword, lance, leg guards, and breastplate. Once up and out of the ground, they eye one another with contempt, snarl, and hurl challenges the way men do who live for slaughter, warfare, and belligerent violence – soldiers through and through. Cadmus understands that they could easily turn on him.”

When offered immortality Odysseus turns it down, since he values his family way more, not evenΒ his encounter with Achilles can change his mind:

“Odysseus had visited the land of the dead; there among the spectres he had heard Achilles say how dreadful it is to be dead, how this phantom with no life or consciousness that a person becomes – this nameless shade – is the very worst future a man can imagine. And now, after his long journey and all his ordeals, Calypso offers him the chance to be immortal and to stay forever young, no longer to fear death and old age.”

“What Achilles says in The Odyssey is the opposite of what The Iliad proclaimed: that Achilles had the choice between a short, glorious life and a long life without glory, and he had never hesitated or doubted for a moment: He would choose a glorious life and heroic death in the flower of youth, because the glory of a short life ending in a fine death was worth far more than anything else. Now he says exactly the opposite: Once a man dies, given the choice he would rather be a poor louse-ridden peasant alive in the most benighted backwater of Greece than great Achilles in the world of the dead.”

What Odysseus sees when he visits death:

“They form a vague mass of beings who used to be individual persons but can no longer be distinguished. From that mass swarming past him there rises a terrifying, unidentified sound. They have no name, they do not speak; it is chaotic noise.”

The island of the sun god.

“The place does belong to the sun, that all-seeing eye.”

Sirens at work:

“But meanwhile, even as these beauties are revealing the Truth with a capital T … their island is ringed by a mass of corpses, flesh decomposing in the hot sun on the beach. These are the bodies of all the men who succumbed to the Sirens’ call and died. … What they say to Odysseus is in a sense what will be said of him when he no longer exists, when he will have crossed the frontier between the world of light and that of shadows, …”


Maintaining Positivity In A Culture Dominated by Negativity.


Ironically enough I’ve found faith while simultaneously losing faith over the last few years since I started blogging and reacting to events unfolding on both sides of the Atlantic. I’ve Β been doubting our secular values and constructs more and more, and while this has been happening my heart has increasingly opened up to spirituality, which is interesting.

Yesterday I decided to read my own Lyric Book to see what sort of message I’ve been projecting in the past, and it gave me a certain sense of comfort and relief to see that I was funnily enough broadcasting sentiments that I wasn’t even aware of could be perceived as spiritual in nature. I am happy to see that I was aligning myself with positive energy, criticising negative and destructive forces detrimental to us all.

When reading through my long blog entries on here, out of fear that some of these posts might potentially fuel negative energy, I couldn’t fail to notice how ridiculous a lot of the source-articles that inspired my entries now seem, even though they are not that old at all. It is very, very, obvious, that fear mongering and catastrophic scenarios are constantly being brought up; Brexit would be the cause of WW3! Everyone would instantly die of cancer! Mass panic could be sensed everywhere with the election of Trump, as if though Trump + Brexit would equal instant apocalypse for everyone, everywhere! I ridiculed these sensationalist sentiments; and I believe that a great number of people will look back at “the public discourse” thinking of it as silly. It is good for an instance to see that politicians are now all of a sudden openly discussing topics that just some years ago were seen as off-limits. It shows how quickly things can change. Hopefully this will tackle chaotic conditions on both sides of the Atlantic and in the rest of the world. I fail to see why people would be keen on destabilization; I’m not a fan.

Negative news stories broadcasting acts of evil, with journalists moaning our imminent demise cannot possibly be seen as particularly uplifting material, and when one thinks about how massive this negativity-assault is on our senses it certainly raises some questions.

It has become increasingly obvious to me that a re-connection to spirituality and family values is the solution. Reading about something like this for example is horrendous, the same can be said of the focus on the latest lone-wolf gun-man in the U.S.A. It is important to always remember that wherever there is destructive, hateful, energy, there will also be a positive one. An example of this could be those who heroically saved their fellow students in Florida, or in a war setting: Oskar Schindler’s bravery in helping persecuted Jews.

I received a book for Christmas written by someone I fundamentally disagree with politically, but his assessment of those on the right-political spectrum is probably very accurate; conservatives react to the antics of politically creatives on the left, who want to shake things up with all sorts of strange ideas. My entries are no different; they are reactions to what is happening, since I do not approve. I do however sense that things might not become as gloomy as many fear. I have a hunch.

If you feel down and don’t like the direction that your country is moving in you should try to get involved with something; I’m assuming that when somebody loses it, they have all of this pent-up aggression and internal negativity that just spills over turning them into agents of chaos. Strange really if you think about how the criminal acts of political terrorists always outshines whatever message they allegedly want to get out there. If you want to change the world it is probably more productive to read about Rosa Parks. Those who want to change things need a network and a proper plan.Β Help Those In Need.


What Is New?


Yes, that’s what I’m wondering after reading a Wikipedia entry yesterday about conspiracies regarding “The New World Order.” It showcases how conspiracy theories have always been around, and that the only factor that seems to change are who the bad-guys are … this is an entertaining read if anything: Illuminati confirmed. Β That being said, there have been cases of creepy conspiracies being blown open for the whole world to see, yet it is quite funny what the human mind can come up with….The New American Spies…..

This is a good article criticising the art of diagnosing people from afar, a practise that appears to be reserved for lone-wolf serial killers and world leaders vilified by the mainstream press. The article is hilarious and calls out all of those mental-health professionals who came out of the wood work to give Norway’s most notorious gun-man all sorts of labels without ever having interviewed him properly. The article then concludes with some telling revelations of how Putin has been diagnosed with Aspergers based on how he moves in videos, a conclusion reached by a research group over at the US Naval War College.

There is also a rule in place within the therapist community called the “GoldwaterRule,” after psychiatrists came out and publicly concluded during the 1964 presidential election that the Republican candidate Goldwater was mentally unfit for office. However it seems like psychiatrists and psychologists alike have thrown this rule under the bus in the wake of Trump, undermining their own credibility by throwing around the one diagnosis after the other. I shared another excellent article from Norway on Twitter not that long ago, where it was pointed out that everyone are talking about mental health disorders at the moment, even those who don’t really have an official diagnosis. Yet the real issue at hand is that people don’t talk about why they feel down or why they might suffer from a panic attack. It has become trendy to self-diagnose while avoiding the real reason as to why one might feel out-of-it. To paraphrase a popular online meme: “Before self-diagnosing yourself, make sure that you are not surrounded by assholes.”

This act of self-diagnosing and assuming all sorts of things is a worrying trend that I got caught up in myself back in 2015, when I prematurely and ridiculously came out of whatever closet. Totally ridiculous; but we are all a product of the times that we live in, regardless of how free-thinking or independent we like to fool ourselves into believing that we truly are :/ So next time you think that you are depressed, well maybe you just have a bad day, and if you feel upset about something then maybe it is time to talk with the individual who is pushing your buttons for whatever reason, if that’s the case. It is also unwise and equally ridiculous to diagnose other people with all sorts of ailments, something I think everyone is guilty of to one degree or another. “This weirdo did so and so, hence he/she has to be insane!” Really? Says who? The fact that medical health professionals also fall into this trap is very telling and does not reflect well neither on their profession nor our current culture of general confusion.

Here is an article about Jordan Peterson a clinical psychologist, with qualifications, who knows what he is talking about. I might not agree with all of his statements, but when talking about human nature, etc; he is incredible. Check him out if you dare!

I do believe that we have legitimate reasons to worry not just in our part of the world but in the US as well, yet this article is interesting and recommend some intriguing books that everyone should probably check out. (It is of interest to note that people on the right are being criticised for adopting leftist methods, it’s a never-ending battle of ideas and values and the people on the other political spectrum want to win the tug of war obviously, and are not happy to see what young conservatives are up to).

If you want to feel dizzy or you need to fall asleep but are struggling, then I can highly recommend reading about theΒ Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
