The Age of the Sage

  • Released 2006
  • 17 Tracks

Notes from Dave:

This album came as a result of what I refer to as the “Era of Pain” finally coming to a close. 17 songs made up this album. Out of all of them, No Saving Me still stands out as my favorite.

While this album has a variety of depression fueled songs, it is also known as the start of my insane and ridiculously stupid one-man war against Paris Hilton. It’s possible that my anger became misdirected (or more so redirected) at her. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a fan of hers by any means, but I also can not ignore that this may be what happened.

In Long Time Coming, I took one very long verse and let what was left hit the wall. It was actually made after Final Thoughts, which causes that title to make no sense. I think by that point, I had basically started giving up but hadn’t quite made it there yet. Then again, as further albums showed, the depression eventually turned into more anger and eventually dissipated altogether. It would have been nice if it happened all in one week, but unfortunately, that is not the case.

There are others on this album that I really liked, such as HushZero, and NerdDetermination of the Damned was also one I dug, but the end pisses me off since the Mandy I spoke of in that song fucked me over later down the road. Literally only a couple months later. Fuck ass.

Love Paris is my ex-wife’s favorite from this album, and probably in the top 3 of all of my music. It was a very ridiculous reverse of what I said in Bomb Paris. I made it because after Bomb Paris, several people were saying I must really want her. I’m not sure how that makes any sense. The song wasn’t written, but instead, I simply said the opposite of what I said in the original song. That’s why it sounds even more ridiculous.
