[^] $ the rhapsody manifesto > an agreement between the ocean grove artistic collective & the not so odd world....
trt-94...if you’re consuming our art with any pre-conceived notions or expectations of how it should be presented then you will find yourself extremely disappointed;
we would rather fade into obscurity and die out than live prosperously in a pigeonhole of mediocrity

<in any art form we engage with, there is need for inventive thinking that goes against uninspired standards>
<we grew up on music that bred fun and passion, perhaps that notion has been lost along the way?>

<in the art form, in performance, in personality?>
<we’re completely assured of our shortcomings, but it’s about knowing your strengths and weaknesses and working on them accordingly>
<we’re not going to buy your respect; we’re going to earn it>

<show weaknesses and flaws>
<in all that we do we endeavour to not put up some facade>
<punch me in the throat>
<it is all too common seeing people not being true to themselves or their art form    
merely to be perceived favourably>
<too many people fear the judgment of others, which holds them back in their creative boundaries>
<why is everyone trying so hard not to fuck up?>
<humans are inherently flawed, so why communicate an artificially manufactured perfection?>

<we want an og show to be an experience like no other, beyond the music>
<an all-accepting culture and outlet one can immerse themselves in>
<moshing and violence is officially done as far as we are concerned>
<be proud of where you are from, who you are, what makes you dissimilar>
<we suggest climbing on someone’s head>

<not just to tear me down>
<don’t take shit from anyone, don’t forfeit your morals for any fuck head>
<if its morally reprehensible you need to let your voice be heard>
<suck on that kick stick before you get too fucked up and misplace it>

i’ve been misused, yet again
so self-destructive, boundless and bare
i front tough.
teeth shut and shudder.
so self destructive – the bottleneck.
watch as it trickles down my face
we are the dead years, we grow from our own fears and we exist to outlive doubt

* a message to the followers:
make the most of the time you have.
we strongly believe in social connection and death of the ego.
take the opportunity to embrace people of different creeds and cultures, there are so many stories that can be shared and the world is a weird and wonderful place.
it truly pays to lend your time to absorb other people’s interests and beliefs.
no doubt you’ll be remembered for it.
it’s a level playing field, treat everyone equally and ALWAYS be wary of the little guy.
don’t be a flog, mate.  
and she loved it.
