Welcome to the Grubblescope!
This is the domicile where one has the chance to look at the world through the lens of the Grubblescope.
You may be asking yourself, at this point, what in the hell is a Grubblescope?
Well, the Grubblescope is the name of my blog and a variation on the theme of the Hubble Space Telescope. It is a glimpse of the universe though the lens of Graham Czach, me. This may sound egocentric, I know, but I assure you it is not. Give me a chance to explain here. Everyone has their own lens that they see life through or a filter that they come to perceive what their so called reality is. Since everyone's perception or idea of reality is different, I would like to share mine with all who will read because it might make you smile or laugh or angry or entertained or aware or enlightened or whatever. Whatever it does, hopefully it will touch you and make it worth your time to have read. I don't particularly feel that my Grubblescope is more special than anyone else's reality/movie and/or blog that they make up and live in from day to day, but I do want to share my Grubblescope reality of experiences, thoughts, opinions, beliefs, and recommendations, even scientific things as well - obviously because of the name relating to the Hubble;) I like to check out other peoples stories and experiences because I find them entertaining. Come on, how fun is life without entertainment? Don't answer that question. I promise I will make them entertaining in one way or another. It all depends on how you look at it. So, I want to invite people to open their minds and comment and speak out about how they feel, what they know, why things are the way they are, and anything else people want to share concerning my blog posts.
For this first post I just want to get acquainted and let you know that "I honor the place in you in which the entire Universe dwells, I honor the place in you which is of Love, of Integrity, of Wisdom and of Peace. When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are One." This is the definition of an ancient Sanskrit Hindu word, Namaste. I've always liked the definition above best because of the way it is worded. I feel that I live by that and could not have said it better. I learned this from my mother, who is a master Yoga instructor and has taught me so much in life including the power of balance and virtue. I can not thank her enough for all the unconditional love and support she has given me since I was born. I will tell more about my amazing mother in a future post because I think she deserves an entire one dedicated to her and you will know why when you read it.
I hope everyone who is reading this has had a chance to buy a copy of my debut album, "Lucid" and listen to it. I'm extremely excited to put it out there and share my passion with the world. If you haven't bought it and/or haven't heard it yet, please stop what you are doing and BUY IT NOW!!!;) haha, no..I'm serious. It is finally the first album that I feel completely satisfied with from beginning to end. I mean I'm super OCD and a perfectionist, which anyone who knows me knows this, so it has been a incredibly long and rough journey, but it is so worth it. And on the same token, It could always be better in my mind but you have to know when to say when and know when it's done. I'm happy with the final product and think it is totally worth it to buy a hard copy CD because of a few things including the amazing and talented artist, Jeff Jordan, and his original artwork he made for the album, the quality of a CD is way better then an mp3, and if your computer or Ipod or whatever crashes, you will still have a hard copy for back up.
I want to thank everyone again who had a hand in the making of the album and supported me throughout. I especially want to thank the following people again. The main performers, Kris Myers, Matt Nelson, and Chris Siebold, Co-producer/engineer Matt Nischan, Engineer/mix master Manny Sanchez, Artist Jeff Jordan, Executive producer Avery Baron, Website master Dave Glines and Burn Bright, my parents Jeff and Kathy Czach, and my amazing true love Monica Kowalski. I couldn't have done it without you guys. You have made my dream come true. I also want everyone to know that I truly appreciate anyone and everyone who purchases a copy of the CD and so do many other people and creatures of this world, and the earth itself for that matter, that will be helped through the donations I'm making to Greenpeace, Planned Parenthood, the American Cancer Society, and the Art of Living Foundation based off of a portion of the proceeds from album sales. I'm doing this because my goal with this music and this album is to change peoples lives through music and I'm following my music and the messages within it by donating to organizations that change lives and the world we live in for the better. I will post more about this later and explain some of the messages and substance within the songs on the album, but for now I bid you a farewell and come back to visit soon. I will try to keep up with regular Grubblescope posts so please check back with the Grubblescope shortly.
