HOPE

Hope by Brian Toledo & Eric Toledo

Written & Recorded on 4/14/2001 by Eric Toledo using a Yamaha MT4X 4-track cassette recorder, purchased at Skips Music Sacramento, CA and given to Eric by his Dad. Thank you for your continued love and support.

The Holy Toledo Brothers:
Brian Toledo – Drums
Eric Toledo – Vox, Acoustic Guitar 1 & 2, Bass

This is dedicated to anyone who needs a little HOPE in their lives.

I’d love to hear COVER versions of this song, lyrics or not or whatever. To spread the simple universal message of HOPE. Please help me spread HOPE by covering this song and sharing it.

Included in the album download is the original lyrics & chords for HOPE. Unfortunately I cannot find the master cassette tape or I’d upload the individual tracks as well. This song is CCMUSIC licensed.

You can download an alt mix of HOPE free on SounCloud too: http://soundcloud.com/eroctech/hope

Background

Written when I was 22 during a very dark time of change in my life. HOPE is my prayer. I struggle with Bipolar. I have struggled with depression since I can remember. At age 13 was the first time I was hospitalized for my depression, it would not be the last.

I’ve had many good years and some bad, mostly good. I’m very lucky. I was able to get help and have friends and family be there for me. Not everyone has that or is too afraid to speak up. No one wants to talk about Mental Health yet in the USA alone about 43 million adults suffer from some mental disorder A YEAR. Yet many lack access to mental healthcare. Instead of more bombs and bailing out the rich maybe we should change this? Just a thought.

We all have those times in our lives when we just don’t see how we can make it past right NOW. But you will make it. I promise you it’s going to be ok. It may not be easy and you will have fears and doubts aplenty, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. It’s ok to speak up.

Believe in something other than yourself. Be kind to yourself. Never give up, never surrender. Go and make mistakes. Lots of them. They are going to happen anyway might as well enjoy the ride. And above all LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. Especially yourself.

This life is a gift. Take it easy.

peace,
et

STAR WARZ: The untold story of ‪#‎eroctech‬ and the birth of The Black Penguins or something yadda yadda

Back in May of 2010 I had become obsessed with this long music video/mini movie in my mind. It all started with The Beatles and Muddy Waters, then I started messing with Family Guy’s Blue Harvest – STAR WARZ. Things got trestrange to say the least. Like a real life movie.

It’s only taken me 5 years to post these. I hope they don’t suck. These are unedited since 2010. They are as is.

al “NO! Inc.” carter – drums
david “NO_BEARDO_NO” emmert – bass
eric “eroctech” toledo – guitar

Special thanks for SUPER and all my SUPER PEEPS for the loves and support and your HEY art. I see every SUPER tile as a piece of art worthy of being in any museum. SUPER is a unique place of empathy rarely found online. CHECK IT OUT the iOS & Android app here http://super.me

This video a celebration of the early days of THE BLACK PENGUINS and SUPER. This entire project was possible because of SUPER. This was not planned out months in advance it just kinda happened. I found the untitled song and a post here and post there and HEY I think I got something. The goal was to just put it out there. Keep things raw. GET IT DONE. So hope you enjoy.

I highly recommend watching this video by James Victore about “Feck Perfuction”. Inspiration for us all: https://youtu.be/SVw5e6EYFUg

Recorded on 11-11-2010 HEY (original file name SR052-untitled-dec-11) is the 3 time we all three met together to jam. This song never made our debut album “Mark it Zero”. No edits except the intro & outro nonsense (tails out). Also TIP – we recorded our practices using Front & Back stereo pairs mics then summed down. Try headphones for that in the room vibe; as well as blasting it on some speakers with low end.

VIDEO of “The Shack”. The room were the magic happened:
