Jason Mackenzie Toy Company?

That's right folks, there is a possibility that I may be in the Toy Business in the near future.

The toys will be from the upcoming sci-fi action book series that will be launching in six months.

In the next several months I am releasing two book series one of which is action sci-fi in the young adult category. The action sci-fi book series will be released for now on free eBook. Hopefully printed versions will come out not too far in the future.

Now I'm not saying that's its also going to be a cartoon and comic book...but we're doing up all the sketches and drafts for the characters from the book series and they will be posted on the internet so everyone can see what the characters would look like IF it was a comic or be honest we don't have the people right now to do the voice overs so theirs no cartoon planned at this time.

So we're putting the book series out in novel format and then releasing all the sketches for the characters in comic book / action cartoon format just to see how it's going to look for now so everyone can see it.

Then we're releasing the diagrams for the action figures of the characters from the books on the books webpage.

After that we're going to be making Prototypes of the action figures from the books for a possible toy line if its successful. So if all goes well with the action figure prototypes we may be selling them through the mail.

When the prototypes for the figures are done I will be posting all the pictures for them on the books webpage along with all the character art and toy layouts. Hopefully it will launch but we're just going to see how it goes for now and show everyone the potentional cartoon series  / comic book material.

In the meantime the eBook version and character images will start coming out in the next six months.

Look for the prototypes for the action figures to be released in about two years.

So we'll be posting the ebooks and art starting within the next six months and the comic book  / cartoon art along with prototypes for the action figures will be released in two years.

So we're releasing the whole set from the book and we'll see where it goes.

Stay tuned! Check out the sci fi book series starting in about six months on free eBook!

Don't Break My Emo Heart - Part 2

Several weeks later the band was getting ready to play their first concert but all was not well with the group. Bic, Smith and Jim had taken the time and made a really great three song promo cd-r for for their band which had  nice disc label on it and good artwork and sound and took it pretty seriously. For them the band was their main interest but for Edge he had a different use for the band.

Edge was using the band as a means to make a small business out of booking concerts in the emo scene in Port City and as a reason to get Sara to like him. On top of that he was trying to mix the emo scene with the lgbt scene so he could be openly bisexual with Sara as well at the lgbt clubs where he wanted her to meet other people with him in an open lgbt emo scene relationship all at the same time.

Jim says to Bic and Smith "Y'know Edge is getting pretty weird man with all this emo club stuff in Port City and with Sara and them asking what they think of the band all the time." Bic says "yeah, not that I care but he's being super gay." Smith says " I know, everything he talks about as emo is really gay when he shows you." Bic says "Man, hanging out at the lgbt club for concerts is not really my thing dude." Jim says "Same here man, I'm from a small town man. Everyone says Edge is booking stuff at the lgbt clubs and saying its emo. I'm not doing that man. Everyone here will think your gay."

The guys decided that they would play few local shows and then do their CD release show at the local all ages club and then call it quits and end the band before the big concert in Port City. For them, playing concerts in the big city in the emo scene with the open lgbt community was just too much for their small town interests. They decided they would tell Edge they were breaking up after the CD release show and there would be no concerts in Port City.

As the CD release show approached the band played several times and was one of the best local acts and surely would have been well recieved in Port City. The promo cd-r sounded super good but playing in a band like that was not really what the guys wanted to do.

For Edge the CD release show and upcoming concert in Port City was going to be the best night of his life. His dream of the perfect life was coming true..he was playing in an emo band and putting out records, starting a band booking business in Port City and joining the emo club scene and the lgbt community and then he was going to even get the girl he was in love with all on the same night.

Edge had made the perfect life for himself and at the CD release show it was all about to come true.

The CD release show was pretty successful and they sold tons of copies of their promo CD. After the concert Edge approached Sara. "How did you like the concert?" She responds "yea you guys were really good." Edge says "Will you guys come to the big concert in Port City?" Sara says "No, we can't make it." Edge thought she would be impressed by him now because of the CD and concert and says to her "If you can't afford to go we can drive you." Sara says "No thanks, we're not going." Edge says "oh, well maybe you guys can come hang out with us sometime then." Sara replies "No thanks, we're not I interested in hanging out with you guys.I gotta go." Sara walks away and Edge says "oh sorry" with no reply from Sara.

Edge says to Bic "yeah Sara and them don't want to come to Port City." Bic says "yeah sorry man we can't either we're quitting the band and don't want to play any more." Edge says "What?" Jim says " yeah we're all done with the band man thats it." After several minutes the guys convience Edge they are serious ruining Edges dream  of the perfect life forever.

Edge had lost everything. No girl, no band , no concerts, no booking agency because he was kicked out of the emo scene by his friends and no lgbt community all in one night.

After that everyone hated Edge for pulling the gayest stunt ever and Edge remained in the  small town where no likes him and he is the most jealous person ever and tries to ruin other peoples chances of playing in bands by making fun of them because his dreams of the perfect life were ruined years ago and he blames everyone but himself.



Don't Break My Emo Heart

The Story of an Emo Youth Playing in a band dealing with the struggles of being gay / bisexual in the emo youth alternative music community.

All characters are fictional.

A Short Story by Jason Mackenzie

A few years back just after high school was over Billy Piedmont was sick and tired of the boring life he had in high school where everyone made fun of him so he decided to change his name to Edge Mascara and start an Emo Rock band and join the openly gay lgbt community in the big city and make a name for himself in Emo Rock and concert promotion. Edge had fallen in love with the perfect emo girl and set off to find the dream in real life he had. The perfect girl, an emo band , concert promotion and being openly gay all at the same time. It was the perfect life and all within his grasp he thought so he set out to make the perfect life.

"What's up guys?" Edge asked his fellow band mates "Not much." They replied "We're just trying to come up with a name for our band." Edge says "Yeah I got us booked at the local youth center and the all ages club in the City." Bic the bass player says "yeah man, we need a name soon cause we gotta put it up on the poster in Port City."

Port City was about two hours away from where they lived and was the home of the emo rock scene and the largest lgbt community of the Coast, both which Edge desired to belong to.

Smith their drummer, who just went by the name Smith says to edge "yeah, did you get your guitar strings thing fixed yet and pick up that amp we need to play the concert?" Edge responds "Not yet, I gotta go find out if I can get the amp for the concerts before I buy it because I don't have the money but I wanna see if I can borrow it for a few days so we can play shows. I'm also gonna have to put my guitar into the shop to get fixed because the 3rd string keeps popping off but if I can't get it fixed on time I'm gonna have to borrow one for the shows we're playing."

"Oh yea." Smith replies "we're just waiting to see what your doing cause we're all set." He says. "Yea." Says Jim the signer "we're all ready to go. We're waiting for you man so what's up then?" He asks edge.

"Well." He says "Things are really busy right now and I have a lot of stuff to do. But I talked to the club owner in Port City and playing the concert is no problem and I was asking around about who might be there from the emo scene in the City but he doesn't know." What Edge meant was he was searching the lgbt classified personal ads in the paper in Port City and he was trying to find out if the gay scene was going to emo concerts in Port City and he was trying to meet them by playing shows and booking concerts.

Edge says "So we've been going regularly to the local all ages club and they have some good bands so I wanna see if they want to come play with us in Port City plus they have a big crowd locally and I wanna see if some of the fans here want to go see the concert in Port City like Sara and them. Do you know if Sara and her friends are coming to the local concert this weekend because I want to see if they will come to the show in the City with us." Jim says "I dunno man, I only see them at shows." Smith says "I don't know. That's just a bunch of people the go to the all ages club I don't know them
" Edge says "oh I thought you might know them and I was going to get you to ask them to come to the concert in Port City."

What edge meant was Sara was part of a younger crowd who went to the all ages shows he was in love with her and wanted her to go out with him and help him start a concert promotion business in Port City and start an emo club scene at the all ages venues and join the lgbt community with him and meet other openly lgbt people around the club scene.

Bic says "Who cares about all that anyway, we got like three songs recorded and need to come up with a band name for the poster and we have to get the artwork printed for our promo cd-r because the emo guy said they would accept a promo cd-r if we have printed artwork and its better than a demo the guy said." Jim says "Yeah man, we need to finalize the name and logo for all that plus we need to practice. When are you getting that stuff done?"

Edge says "Well I'm working on the amp and guitar and stuff and I can't decide on the name to go with for the band. I was going to see if Sara and them wanted to help out pick the name to see what one the local crowd likes."

What Edge meant was he was in love with Sara and was trying to go out with her by getting her to choose their band name.

The other guys in the band were busy getting their promo cd-r ready for the indie emo sales guy hoping to get a record deal or something out of it, they had a three song cd-r but no band name yet and were working on the artwork. Edge who was assuming the role on his own as band leader was booking the concerts and trying to get amplifiers for the them.What the other guys in the band didn't know was that Edge was more interested in the emo crowd and the lgbt scene in Port City and he was just using the band ad means to get into the scene and go out with Sara where they could be openly bisexual together in Port  City and no one would know, plus it all looked normal because they all dressed emo and all the guys wore makeup anyway and the girls dressed indie looking and all fit in at the clubs. Edge thought this would be an easy way to be openly bisexual without drawing too much attention.

A few days later on Friday night at the local all ages club where everyone hung out Bic says to Sara "Edge wants to know if you and Roxanne and them want to go to our concert in Port City and help him decide what his choice for our band name should be." Sara who was 21 and three years younger than Bic says to him "Why would he want me to do that? I don't even know him and no one even saw you guys play yet." Bic says "I dunno we're just trying to get a CD done and play our first show." Jim says to Sara "yea, and uh Edge is all like he has to go to Port City all the time and talk to club owners and stuff about booking concerts and he wanted to know if you guys wanted to help pick out the band name and go with us to Port City to see the concert we're playing." Bic says "Yea Edge is being really wierd man, plus he didn't get an amp yet and all he talks about is the emo scene in Port City." Sara says "I don't even know him and I've never been to the emo scene in Port City before. I don't know what he's talking about." Roxanne says "yeah that's pretty weird. You guys should pick out you own band name but if you want my opinion I'll look at the list you have. "Sara says "yeah, why would edge want me to do all that?"

What Sara didn't know was that Edge was setting up a plan for her to join the emo rock scene in Port City and the lgbt Community with him.

Just then Edge walks over to the group of them and says to the girls "Hey, do you guys ever go to concerts in Port City because we're playing there in a couple months and wanted to know if you guys wanted to come with us to support the scene?" Roxanne says "I dunno that's pretty far." Sara says "yea, what's up with your band name?" Edge says "Why?" Sara responds "Bic said you wanted us to pick it out." Edge says to her "Right, what I mean is kind of like a poll of the local fans and then I thought you might want to come to Port City and help support the emo scene and make the crowd bigger for the concert." Sara says back to Edge "yea, I don't think I can do that." Edge says to her "Just think about it, we're gonna have  good time.Plus this guy I know runs a record store there maybe I can get you a staff discount on some CDs." Sara says "uh, Port City is a little far and I don't have much money for CDs right now." Edge says" just think about it. It would be way more fun if the local crowd came to the emo club in Port City when we play." Sara says "I probably can't make it." and walks away.

What Edge actually meant was he was trying to ask her out but was too scared and was trying to get her to go to an lgbt club in Port City with him under the guise of an emo concert.Edge decided that he would ask her again later and try and see if she wanted to start hanging out with him and his friends.

A few days later at their band practice Smith says to Edge "yea we got a band name picked out and everyone likes it." Edge says "Which one? Did Sara and them have poll or something?" Bic says "No, we just told them what we were going to use and they said it was cool." Edge says "OK, what one did everyone like?" Jim says "Its gonna be called Emoscreamer and we have a logo done." Edge says "oh, I wanted to be there when you decided but that one is super good." Bic says "yeah you said you couldn't make it so we did it without you.The crowd at the youth center said it was awesome but they can't make it to Port City because its too far." Edge says "oh, they might change their mind later I'll ask them the next time they are at the all ages club here." Bic says "OK, we gotta practice for the shows."

What they didn't know was that Edge had been trying to set up a date with Sara and was trying to think of a reason to get her to go out with him to the lgbt club in Port City where he was going to try and go out with her.

This is my new blog location

So I decided to make a new blog here on Blogger because I can't be bothered to do all the Wordpress on my regular page at which is currently DOWN. 

My page at is now going to be used for something else so I have decided to create this blog as a supplement to the main page and Twitter. I am too busy with music right now to maintain the old blog format with all the recording, mixing masterring and artwork production that goes into that. So right now it's all mixing and mastering albums and doing tons of art and etc. I'm also working on a few grindcore compilation series that aren't part of my main label Forward Regression Records with a smaller label that's also coming out soon. So that's going to be an ongoing  series of grindcore compilations apart from the releases on my label.

The webpage address for Forward Regression Records is . Which if you didn't know is the old name of the heavy metal thrash scene that was out on the now defunct Polygram in the 1980's which I NOW OWN. So it's Forward Regression / Banzai Records I might call it but may change slightly. That's so I can cash in on Polygrams old name and be right awesome on the internet.

The new Collapse albums will be out soon and will be available at the page for download. I will probably be releasing all of Forward Regression's albums and Grindcore compilations series as free internet downloads off the main page in mp3 and High Definition FLAC . I know all you Hi Def  FLAC fans will need this format. 

So right now we're getting all that together.

I am also currently working on a few Books that will be released as FREE E-BOOKS at in the near future. So I have DROPPED the Blog format and have switched to FREE EBOOK so get out your reading glasses and ebook reader because that will be out soon. There's no print versions planned yet but feel free to print your own if you want when they come out.

So all I have been hearing is Hilter's Hermaphrodite and Hitler's Cock jokes from my half finished book Does this story Make any Sense? from my old blog. I never finished the book because I got too busy writing sick riffs and shredding death metal lead guitar solos for my new albums and now that's coming out. I may finish the story someday buy who knows?

This is how the book more section on how some guy from the United States Senate named "Ozzy" picked a fight with Ozzy Osbourne in the 1970's and that why they started the PMRC in the 1980's, then Jello Biafra went on Oprah in the 1980's and proved Tipper Gore and them are criminals and will probably get the Death Penalty in the United States, the clip is on You Tube. Then the rest is about how Hilter made the Military Weapons for the Third Reich in the United States at the US Military and then converted them to Nazi Looking in Germany, then at the end of the book you find out that the Hermaphrodite is really about insects and how the Queen Hermaphrodite impregnates all the hive or something and they all follow her around that's the supposed origin of the story.

PS. NO POSERS so hit the bricks losers you're not included in my Books and Records Label.
