Welcome to the NVSounds Blog! I'm Richie, a fun loving, free spirited rocker, who has a mission to save the world. I live for music. Every chance I have I am playing an instrument, from the drums, to the guitar, to any other musical implement I can get my hands on. Technology is my other forte. I have been an electronics enthusiast since the 6th grade when I built my first computer. One of my favorite activities, besides playing music, is a combination of music and technology: audio design. I design and build custom audiophile-grade sound systems for my own use, and occasionally for private order.
I am blogging, not only to share my passion for sound and technology, but to pass on The Dream. I want to be a source of hope for the future, hope that the world has not been completely consumed by the hateful masses, hope in knowing anyone can change the world.
It is my belief that we as people have fallen into a hole, not only in our polluting, self destructive, industrial manor, but in our every day lives. I think there is something wrong with the world, when people question the motives of a man showing, (what used to be) common, courtesy. The Dream is for everyone in this world to live as better people, to be helpful to each other and beneficial to society, to live like people ought to live.
This blog will encompass the topics of music, technology, and philosophy. These topics are all tied together at their source: People. I intend to put forth the best of the best, posting reader-submitted essays (and other content) which have a message for the world.
The blog is dedicated to Dylan Reid Faircloth The First, the man who put The Southern Dream into motion. Dylan was tragically killed in a car accident this last summer in 2010, but he lives on through the many lives he touched. I intend, with this blog, to keep Dylan’s spirit of hope alive. Anyone who knew Dylan for any amount of time is changed because of it, I do not plan on letting his vision for the world stop now.
“The Dream won’t die.” -Dylan Reid Faircloth The First
I strongly encourage readers to contact me with essays, or other content to be potentially featured in the blog.
