DJ Interviews: The Last Ghost

 Here's my interview with  The Last Ghost

How'd you get started in music?

I started in music in Edinburgh in 1994 with a band called Back Door. I was on bass and sometimes drums. In 1996 I got serious in music with the band, The Rain. 

Who are your inspirations or influences?

The obvious ones are the older ones like  The Beatles,  The Who and Pink Floyd. I'm also a Paul Weller nut but far too many others to mention. 

What advice would you offer aspiring performers?

If in doubt, just do it. You will fail at first then get better. If you love it and enjoy it then you have already won the lottery. Enjoyment and experiences from music are worth more than money and fame. 

How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or singers?

I'm unique in that in only really started doing solo music seriously into my 40s after a few years if bands then doing nothing for years and years. Also I keep finding new ways to write songs all the time. I am still learning at my age. 

Any new gigs or albums in the future?

I am currently working hard on my 6th album. I have 20 songs I am trying to get down to 11. I hope to release it in September this year. 

If you fancy checking out my music, it's all here:

DJ Interviews: Oxai Roura

 Here's my interview with singer, Oxai Roura

How'd you get started in music?

I started music as a drummer when I was 2,5/3 years old. In fact, my late father initiated me to the art of drumming. As a kid, I also loved to sing. I never stopped drumming and singing ever since; even if, on my musical path, I also learnt other instruments such as guitars, piano, electronic instruments... and many different traditional instruments from planet Earth (such as Senza, Kalimba, Congas, Djembe etc.).

Who are your inspirations or influences?

When I was a teenager I listened to different kinds of metal music (Thrash, Death, Grindcore…); My favorite metal band is Cynic (Progressive Metal) their album named Focus is incredible ! Then, later I seriously thought of becoming a jazz man, because creators such as John Coltrane, Steve Coleman, Ornette Coleman & Thelonious monk impressed me a lot with their original concepts & creations. I’ve also been deeply influenced by Minimal Music (with composers such as Steve Reich and Lamonte Young) and original electronic music (composers such as Björk and Aphex Twin). Dub Music is also another strong influence that I have…and, of course, I must not forget to mention sacred traditional music from various parts of the world ( such as Africa, Amazonia, Himalayas...) !

Also, I would like to say that my growth as an artist have been influenced not only by musicians and composers, but also by other types of artists like Baba Credo Mutwa, David Lynch and Salvador Dali.

What advice would you offer aspiring performers?

Keep a deep and unbreakable faith in life and in yourself. Stay focused on love, joy and light. You are a unique being. No one else can offer to the world what is hidden deep inside of your heart and soul. Cultivate honesty and integrity towards yourself and towards the audience.  Cherish your dream(s) and believe, with all your heart and soul, in yourself, and in your dream(s)... even if nobody else do so. Self love and love of all beings and life are keys for real & durable success... and for a good holistic life !

How do you set yourselves apart from other bands or singers?

In truth, I don't compare myself to anyone else. What is the point, what is the use? The fact is that I'm very intensely working on one goal, at least since 2003 ( with my very first solo project called The Exu Experience Atabaques N'Bass Vol.1) which is: becoming the best imaginative and creative artist I can be; and share (new) original and very unique concepts & pieces of art with the whole world.

Any new gigs or albums in the future?

Oh yes: indeed ! Actually I'm working on several international projects with different fantastic artists. They are all amazing! 

We're in July 2023 right now; so, I will first begin by talking about an awesome collaboration I'm doing with an "award singer and recording artist" from Alabama, USA. His name is Keyon Harris. Together we created a piece of art called "No More. Multidimensional Version 1". We released it on July, the 1st, 2023 on Youtube and BandCamp. ( Youtube Link For your readers: )

So, we're now thinking of creating other songs together, and these songs could become an album. I also have to say that, in this very cool creative project, we're blessed to work with two fantastic visual artists who are Wrix2 (Aka Whitney Rix Victory 2), from the USA; and OrYon CreaTion, an extremely talented young artist from France.

Now, in 2023 I also released, on my Youtube channel, a very unique piece of art I created with an awesome artist from Japan named AcidCat. Our project is called MUWAY 3.6.9 and we already released an original video called "Eshu In Muwa"; and then, we released, in May 2023, another version of this song dedicated to the Japanese audience...and it was recorded live in Tokyo ! This video is also available on my Youtube channel and on AcidCat's Youtube channel. ( Youtube Links your readers: & )

Therefore, we're now working on different new ideas and songs; and our goal is to release an album together in the future.

Besides, you may also hear of another collaboration I do have with an original Aborigenese artist from Australia named Boorook. Our music is very interesting and we may play it live in Australia and/or in Europe in the future...

Last but not least, in 2019, I began a collaboration with a star from Burkina Faso, West Africa. His name is Séonifa Dabiré AKA Judicaël Dabiré. We already recorded a live studio session called " Hybrid Napala. Initiation". We will perform together on stage, in France, soon. Also: we will record new songs, in a near future, and we will share them in the form of an album with the whole world, probably in 2024. God willing.

Stand & Shout: The Blind Dancer

Here's another story of mine that I hope you'll enjoy it's centered around a girl who goes by Oyster who becomes a dancer to Trinity Blade despite being fully blind & in the end her dream comes true. Enjoy

The Blind Dancer

By Ivy Moon

Ramon voice-over: Have you ever told yourself that you were going to see a goal through no matter what? Well for our good friend Oyster she had one goal that she just had to meet. Luckily for her we made it happen.

(We now see a blind girl who has a fold up cane. She has aquamarine hair & she’s wearing a maroon tank top she’s also wearing black pants. This is Oyster Rains. She’s listening to Trinity Blade’s latest album.)

Oyster: I love this song & Well I’d better get ready to go.

(She heads out to only to see Ramon waiting for her. They escort one another.)

Ramon: So you have any plans later on?

Oyster: Not really just listening to music & playing video games mostly. You want to come?

Ramon: I’ll try but I got to meet up with my friends.

Oyster: Yeah I know that you’re busy. But do what you can.

Ramon: I’ll try.

Oyster: I wanted to ask you something.

Ramon: Shoot.

Oyster: Do you ever have dreams or a lifelong goal?

Ramon: Yeah. I dream of opening up for my favorite punk metal band the flaming crossbows. If I keep hammering away I just might someday. What are your dreams?

Oyster: I would like to be a dancer for my favorite band.

Ramon: Who would that be?

Oyster: Trinity Blade of course.

Ramon: Oh yeah?

Oyster: Yeah  have it all pictured.

(We now see her out in front of a gigantic audience as she cheers the band on. We see Ramon now as Sage grab her hand. )

Oyster: Sage Sparks taking my hand and asking me to dance onstage with him & the band. It’ll be a dream come true.

Ramon: That sounds like an awesome dream. You really think that’ll happen?

Oyster: I’m sure it will. Only problem is that I have no way of going to the concert. My parents have to work & my sister lives far out.

Ramon: Well you don’t have to worry I happen to know Sage Sparks.

Oyster: Really?! You’re for sure?

Ramon: Yeah he & I are good friends & I’ll make sure he makes your dream come true.

Oyster: That is too cool. Thank you so much.

Ramon: You’re welcome. We’d better get inside.

(As they head indoors Ramon races up to his locker to grab his supplies & his inhaler.)

Ramon (Thinking): I just hope the guys are okay with this.

(After class we see the band gathered for a meeting. As Sonia arrives we see her scrambling for a spot.)

Kari: What’s this about now?

J.D.: If I’m correct Ramon did say something about having a special guest for our concert tonight.

Kari: Where can he be anyway?

Hazel: He’s coming right now.

(Suddenly Ramon arrives though out of breath he regains his composer.)

Ramon: Sorry I’m late guys. Anyway I called you guys here.

Kari: What’s up?

Ramon: You know Oyster right?

Hazel: Yeah that blind girl from our art class of course.

J.D.: What about her?

Ramon: Well she wants to dance at one of Trinity Blade’s shows

Hazel: I don’t know

Kari: We already have things planned out besides I doubt she can keep up.

(Suddenly a voice is heard groaning as Oyster emerges)

Oyster: I guess that’s how it is.

Hazel: How long have you been there?

Oyster: Long enough to hear that you don’t want me to dance with you I’ve been dancing for a long time & just once it’d be nice to dance with you again.

(She runs off in a huff.)

Hazel: I didn’t know.

J.D.: You guys could’ve handled it differently she’s danced with us before so the least we can do is ask her to dance with us again, Ramon & I know her well & she’s been progressing a lot in both dance & music so I wouldn’t go judging people if I were you.

Hazel: You’re right I wasn’t really thinking.

Kari: I wish that here was something that we could do.

Ramon: Apologize.

Hazel: What? Now?

Kari: You started it so end it.& besides this your fault as it is mine so you can apologize for the both of us.

Hazel: Yeah you're right. I’ll go tell her right now.

(She races from the meeting room only to see a nearby bus drive the upset Oyster home.)

Hazel: Wait! Oh man I didn’t make it in time.

(She then heads back to the meeting room only to see Kari& J.D.)

Hazel: I didn’t make it in time to apologize.

Kari: I know for a fact Ramon rides her bus. Maybe he told her.

Hazel: Yeah you’re right.

(Meanwhile over the Blast house we hear Ramon talking to Oyster on his cell phone. She’s heard crying.)

Ramon: I’m sure Hazel didn’t mean anything by it.

Oyster: I don’t understand why she doesn’t like me.

Ramon: She likes you it’s just that she gets carried away from time to time. Everyone does. & besides the only thing you can do is prove people wrong. You’ve got talents that some of them don’t know you have. I’ll bet you might even surprise yourself.

Oyster: That almost sounds like something Sage Sparks would say.

Ramon: Maybe.

Oyster: Have you ever spoken with him? After all you are good friends with him.

Ramon: Trust me when I say I know him.

Oyster: That’s great. Um listen Ramon if its okay by you would you be my escort tomorrow night?

Ramon: Sure. I just have to run an errand & I’ll meet you at the concert. How does that sound?

Oyster: Sounds awesome.

Ramon: Okay see you tomorrow.

(He turns off his phone. Meanwhile Sonia heads up to his room She then sits beside him.)

Sonia: Hey you do remember that we have an appearance to make after the concert right?

Ramon: Yeah some talk show over in Lunar Bay right?

Sonia: Of course do you need me to pick up anything?

Ramon: Well you could call in a special order, chicken club sandwich with coleslaw & fries, & to drink fruit punch. Oh & one other thing.

Sonia: Yeah what is it.

Ramon: Can you pose as me?

Sonia: Let me guess you’ve got a friend to deal with right?

Ramon: Exactly.

Sonia: Okay here we go again.

(At the concert we see the band setting up meanwhile we see Oyster sitting in the audience.)

Oyster: I wonder where Ramon could be. He said he’d meet me here. Oh well he’s probably in the bathroom.

Ramon: Hey sorry I’m late.

Oyster: You made it.

Ramon: Heck yeah I’d never miss out on this.

Oyster: I really want the chance to meet Sage.

Ramon: I’ll go get him wait here.

(As Ramon leaves Oyster then feels her CD cover.)

Oyster (Thinking): I can’t wait.

(Suddenly music is heard playing the intro of the group.We now see a spotlight shining down as the crowd goes wild as Trinity Blade begins to perform their first set as Sage takes the stage.)

Sage: Thanks everyone. Before we begins I’d like to ask a special friend of mine to come up here & take the stage. She goes by the name Oyster & from what I’ve heard she’s a terrific dancer. So if you’re out there Oyster come on up.

(The spotlight shines in Oyster direction as Sonia dressed as Ramon leads her to the stage.)

Oyster: I’ve waited for so long to meet you.

Sage: How’d you get the name Oyster?

Oyster: In truth that’s just a nickname my real name is Morgan.

Sage: I see. Well enough of that let’s see you move.

Oyster: You got it.

Hazel: 1-2-3-4!

(A hard rock song is hear playing. As Oyster take her place alongside the band. Insert ‘Wonder Girl.’)

Sage (Singing): I’ve seen you around

Claiming you can talk the talk

But I got to know if you

Truly have guts.

I’ve seen charades before

All of them I ignore

I know that deep down you really know what’s what.

So quit the act show me your true self.

I want to know just what it is you’ve got

Kari: C’mon!


Go! Go! wonder girl

I want to come into your world

Go! Go! Wonder girl

Go! Go! Wonder girl!

Nobody know you they way I do

I’ve seen what you’ve got inside

Don’t be scared to unleash what you’ve been hiding.

No matter what they say I’ve got your back

Show the world just what they don’t know.

(Chorus repeats)

(Guitar solo, Drum solo.)

All: C’mon!

(Chorus repeats twice.)

Go! Go! Wonder girl

Go! Go! Wonder girl!


(As Oyster does one last two step the crowd cheers wildly for both her & the band. Trinity Blade then waves out.)

Oyster: Thank you so much for letting me dance with you. I have a confession to make.

Sage: Yeah?

Oyster: I always wanted to sing this song that I wrote especially for you. So if it’s okay by you may I?

Sage: you certainly can.

(The crowd goes wild as Oyster reaches for the microphone.)

Oyster (Singing): Something you’ve done

Has really gotten me  inspired

To really get out.

Though sometimes I earn a lot of animosity

That make people want to shout.

In the end it’s all about me wanting to be

As good as you.



You’re more than a muse to me.

All of these things you’ve done.

Helping me to be strong

I’ll keep you in my heart for this.

It’s something you’ve done.

(The crowd cheers her on as she hands the microphone back to Sage.)

Sage: That was beautiful. & you wrote that for me?

Oyster: Yeah I did. I wanted to let you know that you’re an inspiration to me.

Sage: That was great Morgan.

Oyster: I can’t believe you said my name.

Sage: And I’ll never forget it.

(The concert continues on as Oyster dances with the band to a few more songs. The next day we see Ramon now back to normal as well as the band & Oyster in class.)

Hazel: I hope that you can forgive me for what I said the other day I guess I forgotten how great of a dancer you are.

Oyster: It’s okay. I just hope to take the stage like that once again. By the way I never told you what happened Ramon. I got the chance to sing with Sage Sparks.

Ramon: Really you sang with him?

Oyster: Well actually I sang to him.

Ramon: Yeah I heard that you did an awesome job.

Oyster: By the way weren’t you around for the show?

Ramon: Oh I was but I had some business to take care of. I had to leave early. You know how it is.

Oyster: Oh I get it. You had a family emergency.

Ramon: Something like that yeah. But for now howabout we catch up on our studies.

Oyster: Oh sure.

(So with that Oyster & the band listen to the lecture of their teacher. Meanwhile in the Blast household Mirabelle gets a disturbing phone call from Dr. Parsons.)

Mirabelle: Oh no that’s awful.

(John arrives in the kitchen.)

John: Honey what’s wrong?

Mirabelle: Well Ramon’s condition is getting worse.

John: Oh no! This isn’t good.

Mirabelle: We have to tell him somehow.

John: I know honey we’ll think of something.

(After class Ramon & Sonia arrive from school.)

Ramon: Hey mom what’s going on?

Mirabelle: Well Ramon I’ve got some news for you.

Ramon: Yeah what is it?

John: You might want to sit down for this.

Ramon (Thinking): This can’t be good

(Ramon & Sonia look on as their parents approach him in shock.)

Stand & Shout: Let It Rock

Hey there everyone, DJ Dizzy here & I wanted to share something special with you all, This is an original story that I've worked on & I've been trying to get it published for sometime but there have been some setbacks financially so I'm going to share them here.

One of them is a series that I've worked on called Stand & Shout about a boy whos the front man to his up & coming rock band despite having   a serious illness & while I;m not going to give too much away I will say that it'll encourage others to follow their dreams regardless of a disability or illness. So here's hoping that you all enjoy it.

Let it Rock!

By Ivy Moon

(We see a young boy who has black hair with blonde bangs & blue eyes. He’s wearing a black shirt with dark denim jeans. This is Ramon Blast. He’s seen dancing around to a hard rock track as we hear him narrate.)

Ramon voice over: Hey. You see that kid dancing & playing air guitar? That’s me. My name is Ramon Jason Blast. You can call me RJ then again everyone does. For as long as I could remember I always wanted to be a rock star. But there’s something standing in my way of it.

(Ramon then tries to shout only to produce a whooping cough.)

Ramon: Oh ouch. My chest hurts.

Ramon voice-over: That would be none other than lung cancer. It’s already in an advanced stage & it’s really affecting my throat or rather my chest. It’s left me unable to scream or shout. & every time I try this happens I cough up blood.

(We see a woman with brownish blonde hair brown eyes & wearing on orange top & denim jeans she’s chopping vegetables this is his mother Mirabelle Blast.)

Mirabelle: Ramon! Are you okay? What’s wrong?

Ramon: It’s my chest it hurts.

Mirabelle: Oh no. I’ll call the doctor.

(In the living room we see a man with black hair & blue eyes & he’s wearing a vest like suit. This is Ramon’s father John Blast.)

John: What happened?

Mirabelle: Ramon’s coughing up blood.

John: Look I understand & respect his dreams of being involved in the music business but I’m worried that he’ll kill himself doing this. He shouldn’t be singing.

Mirabelle: Look John this is his dream. If he wants to do this then let him.

John: Well I’m against it.

(Meanwhile we see a man in a white coat examine Ramon from top to bottom as Ramon rises up from the chair. He puts his shirt back on.)

Ramon voice- over: That’s Dr. Parsons he’s been my doctor since I was born. Well here’s what had happened: When I was born my lungs were semi developed & I had contracted tuberculosis & it had quickly turned into croup. Though the doctors had treated it there were signs of it still left over. & that’s when they discovered that it formed a tumor. They decided to let it pass so they gave it a full month. & in that month the tumor began to grow it was too late so basically that’s it.

(We now see a young girl wearing her brown hair down with a bandana that’s blue & white she’s also wearing a yellow tank top with grey shorts. This is Sonia Blast Ramon’s little sister.)

Sonia: Ramon are you okay? I just saw the doctor leave.

Ramon: I’m okay I just had an accident.

Sonia: You coughed up blood again didn’t you?

Ramon: Yeah. But I can’t help it I really want to prove that I can sing but how can I do that when I can’t even shout?  It’s useless

Sonia: Why don’t you try hitting a high note maybe then you’ll get it.

Ramon: You know I can’t do that.

Sonia: Just try it. I like hearing your voice.

(Ramon inhales & hits a high note.)

Ramon: I did it. Uh-oh (coughs.) That does it I’m calling it a night.

(He changes into his night clothes & heads upstairs.)

Ramon: I’m going to bed now.

John: You want me to turn on your ventilator?

Ramon: Sure.

Ramon voice -over: I use what’s called a ventilator it’s a special device that separates the dust that’s in the air. My parents really care about my health although sometimes I feel like they spoil me. Let me give you the grand tour of the place. Over to the right side of my bed is my guitar. I got that when I turned 11.

(We see a black & green flying v electric guitar on the right side of his bed)

Ramon voice- over: I play it every so often. & as you can see I’m a hard rock aficionado I have a lot of CDs by the most awesome artists. The Flaming Crossbows, Slider that’s a J metal band, & I like Tracker. One of my dreams is to open up for them. My friends & I have a band called Trinity Blade & we rehearse nearly every day. But things have been getting difficult what with my breathing problems.

(We see Ramon in bed sleeping as we enter his dream we see him on stage with his friends we see a girl, Hazel a paraplegic who has blonde hair & brown eyes & is wearing a red colored tank top & plays the drums. We see a tall guy on bass guitar this is J.D. who is tan & has spiky red hair & is wearing black leather pants & a navy blue tank top & another girl on keyboards named Kari who has pink hair & is wearing a black dress with matching boots.)

Ramon: Are you ready to rock?!

(We see a crowd of millions of people cheering wildly as we hear a hard rock instrumental)

Ramon: This is a song that I wrote a long time ago.

It’s called “More to me.”

(Singing): You think you know all you need

to know about me?

Take a good look at what you don’t see.

Sometimes what’s fact is always

fiction. Between you & me that’s causing some friction.

Listen here. There’s more to me than meets the eye.

It’s not that hard to get it right.

Want to tell you this once

Get to know somebody

There’s a lot more to me.

(The crowd cheers insanely wild as well as chant Ramon’s name)

Crowd: Ramon, Ramon, Ramon.

(He awakens to find John standing at his door.)

John: Ramon wake up it’s time for school.

Ramon: Oh… okay

(He heads into the upstairs bathroom & brushes his teeth as well as washes up & get dressed. He then heads downstairs as his friends wait for him.)

Ramon: Hey guys.

Kari, J.D.& Hazel: Hi Ramon.

Mirabelle: Have a good day at school.

(They’re seen walking to school.)

Ramon: I had the most awesome dream.

J.D.: What was it?

Ramon: I dreamt that we were playing a sold out arena& it was pandemonium. My voice came in loud & clear.

Kari: I’ll bet it did. Lately it seems your lungs can’t squeeze out any air when it comes to hitting notes.

Hazel: C’mon Kari you know he can’t control it.

Kari: I’m just kidding

J.D.: Well it wasn’t funny

Kari: Sorry Ramon.

Ramon: Just don’t do it again.

Hazel: Oh yeah I should tell you that the talent show coming up. & on top of that there’ll be some record producers coming out to see it.

J.D.: Which one?

Hazel: Hot Jam records.

Ramon: No way!

Kari: Are you serious?

Hazel: Heck yeah first prize is a recording contract & the chance to perform your own sold out show.

J.D.: This could be our big break.

Kari: Yeah, we better get in on this.

Ramon: Yeah but first we have class.

(In class we see a woman with blackish blue hair & she’s wearing a green & white dress. This is Tessa Freeman their teacher.)

Tessa: Okay class who can tell me what the poet Augustine said in his latest works?

(She points to Ramon as he’s heard coughing.)

Tessa: Ramon are you okay?

Ramon: I’ll be fine. I just have to clear my throat.

Tessa: Are you well enough to recite the passage?

Ramon: I’ll try He was making the point that no matter what the obstacle is you should try to overcome it like with me & the dreams that I have right?

Tessa: Right you will reach them. & with that said we’ll be taking a break.

(The kids leave as does Trinity Blade We now see them eating lunch at the cafeteria which is made up of pizza, salad, hoagies & more.)

Kari: So what song should we do for the show?

J.D.: I’m thinking that we should check the competition so maybe that way we won’t be doing the same thing.

Hazel: That’s a good idea I heard that the competition is supposed to be a bit heavy this year.

Ramon: Well we’d better practice & fast.

Hazel: Okay then to the music room.

(We see Trinity Blade practicing their instruments a hard rock song is heard playing as Ramon strums his guitar.)

Hazel (Singing): You want to play rough

I’ll show you how rough I can be.

Don’t get cute with me.

I play like one of the guys.

Kari (Singing): One of the guysbigsurprise.

No need to despise.

Girls together: We play as hard as the guys!

(As the music fades the bell is heard ringing. They leave the music room for one last session of class then head over to the auditorium for the auditions for the talent show. One of the producers who is wearing a black suit & blue shades & the other who wears a grey suit with red shades these are Mr. Hunter Steele & Mr. Jack Tucker.)

Hunter: Begin the auditions

(We see a boy band wearing silver & blue suits with combed blonde & brown hair. They do some messed up dance moves.)

Hunter: Don’t quit your day job next up.

(We see a dance troupe as one of them stumbles.)

Jack: Not what we’re looking for thanks anyway. Next!

(We see a heavy metal band waving their hair as they play the microphone falls from the stage.)

Hunter: Okay don’t call us we’ll call you. Next!

(We see Trinity Blade set up their equipment we see a shaking Ramon as they take the stage.)

Ramon: Oh man we don’t even know any songs.

Hazel: Don’t worry all you have to do is sing that song you sang once at rehearsal.

Ramon: Which one?

Kari: I think it was called “That’ll Do.”

J.D.: Let’s just get out there & make this an awesome audition.

Hazel & Ramon: Right

Kari: Let’s do this.

Hunter: Okay let’s see what you guys can do.

Hazel: 1, 2,- 1 2 3!

(We hear a hard rock instrumental)

Ramon (Singing): Hey, Yeah!

That’ll do it for the moment.

Don’t want to hear your lies.

I tell myself not to fall for it.

 (Trinity Blade comes in on the chorus)


That’ll do it for me

I took my chances on you.

It ends for us.

You & I are through

I wanted to something but now I finally can.

I’m not part of your sick plan.

Hear me now that’ll do!


(Cheers & applause are heard by the room.)

Hunter: That was impressive! I think we’ve found our finalist you’re in.

(Trinity Blade is heard cheering.)

Kari: Wow you really rocked it Ramon.

Ramon (hoarsely): Thanks.

Hazel: Uh oh. That doesn’t sound good.

J.D.: Ramon you sound awful.

Ramon: Relax I’ll be okay when rehearsal starts.

(During rehearsal we see Trinity Blade practicing.)

Ramon (Singing): I want to rock you

Like there’s no tomorrow, I want to shout!--(Coughs)

Hazel: Something’s up we have to stop.

J.D. & Kari: Ramon!

Hazel: What happened?

Ramon (Faintly): My voice. I think I lost it.

J.D.: Are you sure it’s not shot?

Ramon: I’m sure alright.

Hazel: Let’s get him to the nurse.

(They rush over to the nurse’s office where Ramon sits on the chair. We see a lady with blonde hair & green streaks & wearing her nurse’s uniform. This is Renee The school nurse. She looks at his throat.)

Renee: Well it seems that your strained your voice.

All: Oh no.

Ramon (Faintly): Can I still perform in the show?

Renee: Unless you play your guitar you can.

(They leave the office.)

J.D.: Well that’s it we’ll have to bow out.

Hazel: Oh man & we worked so hard for this.

(Suddenly Hunter approaches them.)

Hunter:  Why the long faces kids?

Ramon (Faintly): I lost my voice.

Hunter: Is that all?

Hazel: What do you mean?

Hunter: You see I know about your ordeal here. I’m a shinigami & I can repair your problem just like that.

Ramon: What are you going to do?

Hunter: Here drink this. You’ll know soon enough.

(He hands Ramon an elixir. He drinks it. Suddenly his hair begins to go from black to blue & is now shoulder length, his blonde bangs become platinum blonde & his eyes are now a slanted and wisteria.)

Sage (Deeper voice): What just happened?

Hazel: You just happened.

Kari: Ramon you might want to hear yourself.

Sage: What do you mean? My voice it changed! I think I’ll try my luck on that high note.

(He inhales & hits a high note which shatters some windows.)

Sage: I can breathe & I’m not coughing.

Hazel: That’s awesome!

J.D. & Kari: I’ll say.

Hunter: What did I tell you? From this day forward Ramon is no longer your name. From now on you’ll be known as Sage Sparks only when in this form.

Sage: Well okay.

Kari: Oh yeah! now that our singer is feeling better will be rocking harder for sure.

Hunter: Now get in there & rock it!

All: Right!

(Later that night we see students as well as teachers gathered amongst the crowd of 400 people in the audience. Trinity Blade stands behind the curtain Ramon looks on.)

Ramon: Oh man I think I see my parents out there.

J.D.: Keep it cool.

Hazel: We just do our best.

(As they watch behind the curtain they hear the emcee. who has black hair & is wearing a custom white suit.)

Emcee: Are you ready for a show?

(The crowd cheers wildly.)

Emcee: Okay then let’s begin!

(We see many different acts perform as well as rap, pop, & rock groups. We also see solo dancing & singing acts.)

Emcee: Well that was entertaining & now what you’ve all been waiting for. Here’s an act that really made a big splash during the auditions. Give it up for Trinity Blade!

(The crowd cheers wildly as they take the stage we see them in different outfits. Kari is now wearing a purple tank top with a black skirt. Hazel is now wearing a red & grey tank top with black leather pants. J.D. is now wearing a green T shirt with grey pants & Ramon a.k.a. Sage is now wearing a long leather jacket with dark black shades over his eyes.)

Sage: Thank you so much. This song that we’re about to do goes out to my dad. I just hope that he’s listening.

(Insert ‘My time to fly’ by The Urge as the band plays yet another hard rock instrumental.)

Sage (Singing): It's my time to fly

Proving ground tonight

Try to be the best that I can.

I've grown to be a man
Only human can understand
I fill my lungs with fear and I exhale.
(Trinity Blade comes in on the chorus.)
It's my time to fly
Father, be with me tonight
I'm right on target
Keep the dream alive
It's my turn to fly
Got to prove this tonight
Sage (Singing): We’re in 2009
The refugees survive.
The whole of humanity lies in my hand.
Give me the chance tonight
To prove to you what's in my eyes.
Bring us to victory.
Dreams become reality.
(Chorus repeats)
J.D. (Singing):Let’s do it tonight.
(Kari plays a brief keyboard solo as the band follows with an intense instrumental.)
Sage (Singing):It's my time to fly
Father, be with me tonight
I'm right on target
(The chorus repeats)
All: Let’s do it
Let’s do it do it do it
(As the music fades the crowd goes wild with cheering.)
Sage: My name is Sage Sparks, we’re Trinity Blade & you’ve been rocked.
(The crowd goes wild once again with even more cheering.)
Emcee: That was Trinity Blade let’s hear it for them one more time!
(The crowd cheers extremely loud as they take their bows & exit the stage.)
Sage: I think they liked us.
Hazel: It’s not over yet we still have the other group to worry about.
Emcee: Now coming up next to the stage is a band who call themselves Boogie Pop.
(We see three girls wearing sparkling blue, pink,& yellow outfits. They have red, blonde, & brown hair with blue, green,
& brown eyes. These are Kayla, Marina, & Jade.)
Kayla (Singing): It’s party time so 
pump the bass
Going to rock you 
because we’re loud 
& in your face.
Better get down because
we’re going to rock this town.
(As the lights go off we see one of the girls slip.)
Kayla (Singing): C’mon & feel the 
beat cause I’m pouring 

On the heat.

(Suddenly Marina& Jade are seen arguing.)

Kayla (Talking): Will you two chill out already?!

Marina: Who are you telling to chill out? This was your idea!

Kayla: Can we please just get through this?!

Jade: You can get through it on your own I’m out of here.

Marina: Me too!

(They’re seen stomping off the stage as the emcee takes the stage.)

Emcee: Well that was uh unfortunate. Since we’ve seen all of the acts the only thing you have to do is vote. We’ll announce the results shortly.

(As the audience text in their votes we see one of the people’s Votes one vote Trinity Blade as do others text in their votes as well.)

Emcee: Okay guys the results are in. Are you ready?

(The crowd is heard cheering)

Emcee: In 3rd place we have the dance act Sidestep!

(We see 6 boys & girls take the stage in sequin outfits.)

Emcee: In 2nd place we have Master Yuki.

(We see a boy wearing baggy jeans & he has blue & silver spiky hair.)

Emcee: Remember the winner shall receive a recording contract with Hot Jam records as well as their chance to perform their own sold out show.

J.D.: Oh man what if we didn’t win? We didn’t come in second or third.

Kari: Yeah might as well give it up.

Sage: Wait for it.

Emcee: Coming in 1st place & the grand prize winner is, Trinity Blade! 

(We see Trinity Blade run across the stage as Sidestep & Yuki congratulate them.)

Sage: Oh my gosh. I can’t believe it we won!

Emcee: That you did. Anything you’d like to say?

Sage: Yeah to all of you people out there who voted I just want to say thanks for your support. & to all of you who ever had a lot of doubt just keep going strong & believe in yourself because dreams can come true if you never give up.

Emcee: Wiser words were never spoken. Let’s hear it for your winners Trinity Blade as they take the stage once more.

Sage: Thank you so much. This is a song that we had done a long time ago. It’s called “My way”

(We hear a heavy rock instrumental)

Sage (Singing): This time around is a new day.

Time is on my side as you can surely see I know for a fact that things are going my way.

Been through hard times but that all ends.

It’s a new beginning which I hope never ends.

I got to say oh I got to say that everything is going my way.

No more of getting pushed around.

That’s right the time is now.

Things are going my way!

Oh yeah things are going my way.

(The crowd cheers wildly as Trinity Blade rock the house.)

Ramon voice-over: & that my friends is how it all happened Looks like something tells me that this is the start of something new.  Now that I’m living my dream other than lung cancer nothing will slow me down. Believe it!
