When Snippets Become Spin-Offs: The Murder Rule and More (Part Three)

As I had said in the previous ‘Snippet-Spin-Off’ posts, a new novel I am working on, titled (as of now) The Murder Rule, will be written in at least three parts. The first two, and updated, posts, concern a murder of a singer and front man for a band on the wane trying to get back into the limelight (which would be Part One of the new novel). The singer, Denny Spradlin and his band, Wolfin, is featured in The Prodigal Band Trilogy, mostly in the first trilogy novel Battle of the Band.

This post features another minor character in Battle of the Band, that is also featured in The Prodigal Band who later in the novel plays a key role in guiding the prodigal band Sound Unltd to their given ‘mission of God.’ His name is Bobby Jones, a band fan-turned-roadie who later creates a song the prodigal band is guided to perform once they accept that ‘mission.’ Bobby, originally from Dallas, Texas, finds himself mind-boggled due to psychedelic drugs he took while partying in the fictitious city of Richmont, California, a fictitious city I use often in the trilogy. He’s so drugged out he can’t even remember who he is… but somehow remembers the phone number of his parents, whom he is getting in touch with months after he left home mysteriously.

The snippet below is the beginning of the first chapter of Part Two of the new novel. More sections of this chapter will appear in coming snippet posts. Enjoy!

The Truth About the (Music) ‘Industry’ Expounded in The Prodigal Band Trilogy (Part Four)—Mind Control

Sorry for the delay in posting! This continues the posts from The Prodigal Band Trilogy regarding how the music industry operates. The mind control I refer to here is not MK-Ultra type or magic-trance type operations, but spiritual, using crystals and rituals combined with ‘prayers’ to spiritual entities; in most cases, evil ones.

However, the first snippet post is part of a song given by good spiritual entities (the angels called the Tooters) to an early 80s rock band singer, Cobey McLeod, that would later serve as an example to the prodigal band, Sound Unltd. The song is called “The Legend of the Prophesied Band,” has a ‘surf music staccato,’ and is featured in Chapter One of The Prophesied Band. This snippet contains part of a verse of the song the ‘prophesies’ the band in question partaking in evil, which it would of course:

Then, the surfer-riffs clashed with metallic onslaught. McLeod’s voice spoke of deals made with the ungodly and lives of pleasure wasted.

And they will dance with Satan,

And they will be filled with lust.

Their minds won’t be their own.

They’ll be the tools of the unjust.

But, like the Prodigal Son, they will come home to live in the ways of The Creator. And the young will follow them.

I emphasize here the final two lines, “Their minds won’t be their own, they’ll be the tools of the unjust,” the evil satanic character Corion and his minions.

Snippets of Reality within The Prodigal Band Trilogy: Alternative Personas

There are many websites, word and video, that expose what could be “mind-altering” techniques and experiences with drugs (or other means) that affect personalities of celebrities, among others. If you are reading these posts you likely know about certain pop stars who have supposedly developed “alt-personas”–YouTube is full of these videos: Beyonce as “Sasha Fierce,” Nikki Minaj as “Roman,” and Lady Gaga saying in some TV interview “I swear to Lucifer…”…I could link to these videos but the reader should do the research themselves. Vigilant Citizen has lots of these video snippets on that site as well as that YouTube channel. Did these celebrities decide to change their personalities themselves or were they programmed? I really don’t think anyone but the celebrity themselves can answer that…and then you have the whole “Laurel Canyon” scene of the late 60s where rockers’ personalities “changed”…MK Ultra? Monarch programming? Who knows? But according to Cathy O’Brien who wrote “Trance Formation of America” (an extremely disturbing book I read in the mid-90s), several country-western stars were programmed by these methods. I kid you not.

Or, is Beyonce’s “Sasha Fierce” persona just for stage-shows (and an album) only? I am sure when Beyonce is by herself (if she ever is by herself) she gets to “be herself.” Because believe it or not, celebrities do value their privacy, even those who can’t help but seek attention. If Beyonce and others really are programmed–and I have my doubts because I need verifiable proof they really are being programmed–I am sure they are “allowed” to “be themselves” every now and then. Otherwise, they might go stark raving mad, IMHO! So I really do think Beyonce and the rest can actually be themselves at times when they are not seeking attention (or being programmed?).

In my The Prodigal Band Trilogy, for instance, singer-front man Erik, as attention-seeking as possible (until he finally grows out of it), when seeking privacy, loves to go fishing, as I point out in a few places within the trilogy.
