  1. The Soundcloud I have posted here is a new one that I had to start as I ran out of space on my old one and can no longer afford the pro unlimited plan. My original Soundcloud, www.soundcloud.com/ruby_plexus, is a lot less lonely.
  2. Currently listening to some of Afgin's new album on youtube. I am enjoying it!
  3. So I finally watched Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. It was ok. I appreciated what they were trying to do with it. I could think of worse ways they could have ended the new trilogy.
  4. Hey everyone! I am still alive despite not being around very much. I've been through a lot in the last few years that I have nearly forgotten what I used to post on here. I have been away from Goa Trance for too long! I hope I can keep posting on here more often in the future though at the moment I am not sure exactly where I will be.
  5. I figured I might as well post something here just because there is no reason not to. So I ran out of space on my old soundcloud and lost my pro unlimited plan due to lack of money, but I have since started a new soundcloud for myself. Here it is... This was written during my time here at the library in Buffalo in the last week or two. I am still homeless unfortunately and I lost all of my ids and shit, but I am slowly trying to get everything back on track. If you don't like the kind of music I am making or it's poorly produced, please don't be upset at me because I really do not have the means to do something like I used to. This is just for something to make sure I am still checking in with something new to listen to for all of you so that you know I am not dead. That's the thing about not having anything produced for about 8 months is that I have a thing about making sure I make something because otherwise I get stuck on the idea that everyone will think I am dead or something if I do not.
  6. I am all for psychedelics becoming a topic of interest in relation to mental health in people. I too believe they can do enormous good on this planet in the way they can make one re-examine themselves and their place in the world. For those who suffer from being too in the limelight, psychedelics might be a good retreat away from society long enough to realize that their lot in life is not so bad.
  7. Currently listening to Salsa Celtica - El Camino from the library and I am immediately transported to another time and place earlier in the summer when I was getting nuked in Niagara Falls and people were dead, or so I thought.

    Why go to Europe when you can spend time in western New York instead?!
  9. Currently hogging some free wifi at a Target, trying to figure out how I can let people know I am still alive even though I am still homeless and still having problems with finances even though my tax returns came in and I have some money on hand for the time being.
  10. So once again I am just sitting here in the central library in downtown Buffalo contemplating my options. I managed to purchase a pair of headphones despite having little to no money so there's that going for me. I really do begin to wonder what in god's name happened to the world. I am very lucky to be alive right now and yet I have so little left of my life. I don't know. I found a website that emulates a Linux environment with LMMS on it so I might fiddle with that or perhaps go get my bike repaired. Just another day living life in a sort of quasi twilight zone daze. At least I will know tonight will be a moon night almost guaranteed and that's always a good thing. Did you know that over the late summer and early fall the moon was blocked out of view in North America and effectively hidden? The lack of moonlight caused the night sky to plunge into near total darkness and crops had their growth stunted. On a bus ride to Chicago, Illinois earlier this year I witnessed farmlands with 1 foot tall corn stalks in September.
  11. I'm just hanging around the central library here in Buffalo, NY pinging domain names and smiling way too much.
  12. Hey, I just came here to say that I cannot ping the host and this is because there is an effort to secure that particular host since it was compromised. Do not despair! You and Fabien will receive ownership of everything again in the near future. The authorities are on the case.

  13. And here is where it all began for me... https://www.facebook.com/pg/Rubys-Plexus-Adventure-457396631118738/posts/?ref=page_internalhttps://www.facebook.com/pg/Rubys-Plexus-Adventure-457396631118738/posts/?ref=page_internal
  14. https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2019/11/google-facebook-surveillance-privacy/ It seems Amnesty International has just confirmed what we all needed to hear.
  15. Sometimes I wonder, but I think all of the mysteries and unanswered questions come down to nothing but Perspective. What's yours?
  16. So the Shield Act of New York came through for me! Apparently I can no longer be found and connected with through VR. It worked. Please save yourselves! Please!
  17. Hello everyone. It has come to my attention recently that there is a major problem around the globe and it has to do with Facebook, and to a lesser extent Google. They have been active in launching something referred to as RCS or Rich Communication Services. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rich_Communication_Services This has been responsible for connecting people to one another in ways they should not. It allows for an exchange of thoughts and also enables others to monitor and probe you. I have seen too many people lose their lives due to this insanity to just sit around and forget that so much of what we loved and cherished is now gone. Most of this is enabled through Facebook and its VR services, such as Messenger. Fortunately, there is a solution to this. It has to do with biometric information. This is your fingerprints, eye scans, and voiceprints, anything unique to you and your body. Facebook has been given access to this information that they never deserved. Some states have started enacting legislation to fight this invasion of privacy and sanity. In Illinois there is something known as the Biometric Information Privacy Act. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biometric_Information_Privacy_Act This legislation is currently being used to sue Facebook. https://law.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/ca9/18-15982/18-15982-2019-08-08.html Here in New York there is the Shield Act recently signed into law which will go into effect October 23. https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/bills/2019/S5575 These laws will protect you from people and organizations who wish to harm you. The idea is to become a resident of the state of Illinois, Washington, or New York. What you can do, and this even applies to foreigners outside the United States to is to go to one of those states, purchase a PO box or UPS Mailbox and then go to the DMV and receive a photo id or identification card to that mailbox. As soon as this happens, that information will reach Facebook who will purge your biometric information from their database. This in effect will prevent others from finding and connecting to you so you can be alone in solitude, peace and quiet with your own thoughts. It may be the only way in which you can protect yourself from mortal danger. If you have any questions about this feel free to email me at jbarker12@protonmail.com or my phone number 716-220-4123. Please stay safe everyone.
  18. Hello everyone! I wanted to let you all know about what has been happening to me. So about 2 and a half years ago I was living in Buffalo, New York working as a programmer when my boss inadvertently forced me to take time away from work due to my concerns regarding a security audit at the company. He forced me to see a doctor and get approval to return to work. At that time it was my parents in Cranberry Twp, Pennsylvania who took me to live with them against my will. While I did receive permission to return to work, I only stayed at my job in Buffalo for about 5 months before I was just fired for little to no reason. So then for the next 2 years or so I was living with my parents in Pennsylvania and I even found work there, but I was repeatedly admitted involuntarily to psychiatric facilities for no reason which was jeopardizing my career. Almost 3 months ago I decided to escape my parents and return to Buffalo, NY. It seems that at some point I had my identity stolen and my very participation in society was challenged. I am currently homeless, without work, with very little money. I do not know exactly what to do. I could really use some help. If you can help me with money, I would greatly appreciate it. PM me for details. Edit: Please contact me via email, not the psynews messenger if you would like, rubyplexus@protonmail.com
  19. Thank you so much for that sentiment! It means a lot to me.
  20. * Feel free to use this thread to check in with everyone from time to time Hello everybody! It's been a very long time since I have been around psynews and the psytrance scene. For the last year I have barely kept up with anything going on. Unfortunately it would seem my work life invaded my personal life in well... let's just say bad ways. I will still be around here though I probably won't be anywhere near as active as I used to be. For those curious, as you can see from my soundcloud, I have been producing a ton of shorter, accessible songs mostly of the downtempo variety with the same unusual production ideas/sounds that keep things interesting for me. I know some of you have enjoyed my Goa Trance in the past and I am so appreciative of that. Unfortunately, my life has taken a nose dive and I am not sure I will ever return to psytrance, but I wanted to let you all know what has been happening with me. Also, you can check my twitter for various stuff like project files and other works of mine. https://twitter.com/barkerj216
  21. I didn't expect a compliment on a 4 year old track, but thanks.
