Big shouts out from Toronto, Canada
December 30, 2013 at 8:26 pm #40313
(especially to those 90′s ravers and junglists and hullas who do not cuss the name of Christ!)
I’m an aspiring DJ, learning on a Pioneer DDJ-SX, which makes it simple.
I have loved electronic sounds since earliest memories: planetariums, listening to music in England in ’91 from their MTV, like Moby’s Go (woodtick/radio mix) … MIDI and keyboards old turn of the 90′s video game sound tracks (like Zack McKrakken and the Alien Mind Benders) and tape decks and record players at home, and my dad’s gigantic concert band room in school … loved the drums the most! HUH!
I think modern electronic music, by what I hear around me (like right now in a Korean computer cafe cause I don’t have access to internet at home or school at this time) IS HORRIBLE!!!
I posted something in another discussion, and it shows my taste in music … there’s so much good stuff out there; and I guess, by what all I’m saying here, that’s why I turned to God’s DJ’s because you’re doing awesome stuff here and probably know Christian worship dance music (is that even how to call it??? Kind of weird to me, cause Bacchaus music (the Grk. god not the Goth band) to dance to is totally not what I thought was accurately captures my sense of praise and worship in the classical sense, like the stuff I love to participate in at church … chant, polyphony, organ …
well, that just put a foot in my mouth.
Just check out the other post and don’t hesitate to jump right in and respond to this or that one. I’m looking to befriend oldskool house heads, techno snobs, trance addicts, ravers and junglists and hullas in Toronto who reformed and transformed their life to Christ, find me on facebook at
I’m totally open to everyone … I live in a community of broken people with mental health and addiction probs as the clean and relatively healthy “Theology Intern” cause I study theology at the Toronto School of Theology and want to be a chaplain/spiritual counselor to the mentally ill … anyhow, that’s just my other passion, pray for me brothers and sisters, peace and good health.
This is where I’m at … the lady in black is my boss. In two weeks notice I threw my first party at 6 St. Joseph Street, it was sooo rushed but every one was impressed; I played five hours and sometimes there was no mere mortal but me in the room except for me because of friend’s obligations, but it was cool because people came and left and all had a good time!!!
Her name is Kim (my boss) she wants me to throw other parties; you’re all welcome to come over and play too! (We are a charity and open to anyone on the crossroads of life to plant “seeds of hope” in people minds and hearts and souls). She was impressed. She knew and hung out a lot with Chris Shepherd in the early to mid nineties … weird connection, huh?
If you guy’s want to make this grow and make it bigger, super awesome! Let’s do it!!! I want to visit you all in Toronto too, whomever you may be, who are interested in making a new friend. I just turned 32 and have the “single celibate” vocation for now so I’m not interested in dating and I’m straight (if people need to know that … :\)
Ready and willing to connect to other areas of Canada … but I don’t have a passport.
p.s. My brother mostly lived in Toronto while I was growing up in 1990′s Sault Ste. Marie. When I moved to school in 2000, life kicked me in the face (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-Azs5J7i1U … I’m the dude with the black rectangular square glasses, flat-cap, and blue shirt and mild Hungarian accent, ’cause I’m first generation Canadian and really don’t have an identity in anything but my holy faith, seriously) … but I got out of it soon enough in 2004.
Loved those parties, but they hated me for the most part because I was smelly sketchy, well, I was more then that I was “ill” … . It was time to regroup, reassess, and renew … got myself clean (it was easy enough, didn’t do drugs for the past ten years, and have drank alcohol for five, come this New Years …. I miss having red wine though with rare steak though …)
Life began to change when I met a religious sister who was awarded the Canadian General’s award for starting up the Out of the Cold Program. She’s like a grandmother/grant aunt to me I did a lot of volunteer community work and continued to form my mind through studies at UofT…. a while ago she got involved with 6 St. Joe’s; Sister Susan’s her name … she founded 6 St. Joe’s and I’ve been living at Lazarus House for the past year and a quarter.
Jesus healed me, in truth of all of this; he restored my mind, he’s working to build up my body; he nourishes my soul daily in the Blessed Sacrament and he’s connected me to awesome religious communities like Madonna House (http://www.madonnahouse.org/) … that have taught me way of the Gospel in totally dedicated, radical and outreaching way … and monasteries and friaries to ask them for prayers. He wants me to use my talents and gifts and knowledge to promote a healthy culture of light and life to people who are perdition. I met a girl at a store at Eaton’s centre who said she was into techno-trance in the 90′s and she was a stylized pentagram; ravers definitely need God! I remember my first raver friend, he’s was always in depression … born on the Feast Day of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
Anyways, peace and love in Christ to all of you … I think I have a lot to learn from all of you both in terms of music and in terms of something much more important, LIFE!!!!December 31, 2013 at 11:18 am #40316
Sounds like God has met with you in a big way, and will most likely use you to save a lot of souls for Him. Glory to God.December 31, 2013 at 3:22 pm #40319
Amazing story! I know someone from Madonna House. But I’ve never been there… yet.January 2, 2014 at 3:24 pm #40342
To God all the honour and glory!
It’s been definitely times of growth in faith and humility through hardship and through love of family and friends, but most of all my God, that brought me this far after my reversion in 2004.
Thank you, 12 Tribes!
No one can no for sure if I’ll be used or not by God, but ever since my reversion back to my faith, I’ve been burning to be used in this electronic music ministry. I keep on asking Him to use me, I keep on saying yes to Him; and I keep on entrusting myself to his Mother, renewing my consecration to her according to St. Maximilian Kolbe’s prayer which sooo powerful.
Jesus keeps on reminding me in prayer to entrust myself to my patron saints and the holy angels … I’ve got back up here below too! http://www.carmelitemonks.org/
Johan Earthquake … who do you know at Madonna House?!? I have a friend who is possibly considering to be an applicant and starting there in June … she at MH for a eight months. A true friend. There awesome holy people there, aren’t they?!
The reason why I plugged the consecration here is that I visited Madonna House twelve times in Combermere and has my old pal David from Manchester England told me things were pretty slow at Madonna House until they began to pray the “Total Consecration,” for the whole house, or have some sort of total dedication to Our Lady. Then it exploded. I’ll see if I can put up a post of the party project that I’m putting on, it’s related to that. Probably in the spiritual discussion section because it’s related to that.
Pax!January 2, 2014 at 4:21 pm #40353
