VIOLET DAYDREAM - MEOW turns 20!

Posted by Soda on May 31, 2019 at 8:05 PM

Crazy to even say...this album is now celebrating it's 20 year anniversary. I always talk about other people's records that changed my life...but this one certainly has and I MADE THIS ONE. I'm so happy to have been a very young kid making music on as serious a level that I possibly could have. I was the only teenager in my town saying I was making records. People didn't get it. I'm going to celebrate this album as much as I can for the next few weeks and breathe some new/more life into it. This record did a lot for us...some really awesome experiences. I can go on and on...I'll do a big post for this over at MUSIC-SURVIVAL-GUIDE soon. I wanted to do much more for this album 20 years later but my budget is really not much of a "budget" these days. But how cool is it that I can tell you that today, 20 years later, "MEOW" is getting bit of a re-release digitally! It'll now be further and finally available on services like iTunes, Amazon Music, Google Play and well beyond that as it continues to get distributed. You'll be able to STREAM this record now well outside of the Soda world. Music never dies, it continues to live and sometimes grow. So, go discover and never stop digging and maybe sometime this weekend find a new spot to listen to "MEOW" and let me know what you find! Special thanks to Mike for years of camaraderie.


Radio play, Podcasts, and other shit...OH MY!

Only one rehearsal remains before the NOX CULT reunion show THIS SUNDAY. The support and excitement this week has been really rad. I'd like to thank Wadio and Ambush Radio for spinning the band this week:

***ATTENCION***

Happy April Fools Day! The below transmission is no joke.

Brothers and Sisters of the NOX, the CULT has been resurrected! Yes, NOX CULT is back together. One more time. We have been brought back for a benefit show to honor and empower our Cult Member, Friend, Brother and Father, Gio "Silver Fox" as he fights for his health. This is an official announcement about the engagement which will take place on May 19th. The line-up is absolutely incredible. This is our first time performing together in over 3 years and my return to the stage in 2 and a half! This will be a night to remember. Ink the date and get to this. Let's shake the world. Wherever you are make your plans now and get there early. We want to see ALL. OF. YOU.


Happy New Year! 10 years OfficialSoda.com!

Posted by Soda on January 1, 2019 at 10:10 PM

Well...Happy New Year. It's 2019...hard to imagine. Also amazing that my website has now been up for 10 years. Thats' when I really started the "Official" Soda thing...I figured I needed a way to seperate myself from any soft drinks, haha.

I was thinking, what can I do this year for my little anniversary? I have a bunch of stuff in mind from Crafty Chaos events, MUSIC-SURVIVAL-GUIDE Podcasts, possible shows(!), sales on merch, giveaways...a bunch of stuff. I've got a whole year to do whatever I like :) And, I will. SO, thanks for stopping by and being around.  For the first day of 2019 I will release a new Episode of the Podcast tomorrow, BUT, below is an advance link:

Soda & MUSIC-SURVIVAL-GUIDE in the new issue of Vellum!

Posted by Soda on October 20, 2018 at 12:30 AM

Guys! I'm so psyched to be in the new issue of Vellum Mag that just came out! "Vellum 21", just released, and I was kindly sent a digital copy to drool over. It looks amazing. This shot of me is from ArtNY some months back AND they even dropped a full page MUSIC-SURVIVAL-GUIDE ad. Geez, what a surprise! Please check out Vellum Mag over at: www.VellumArtzine.com

What an honor, Vellum Mag has been an advocate for me for so long and I'm just so grateful for these beautiful things. 


What an HONOR!

Posted by Soda on October 18, 2018 at 9:20 AM

In all of my years of running around on the maddening path I have followed for so long I have never been presented with such a gift. I'm always so flattered when people I have met along the way surprise me with any sort of something of any kind. But this...this goes beyond anything I have ever received. And to be given this gift because I have, quote/unquote, inspired someone, is the sweetest center to this whole thing. I'm so honored and just blown away by this. I'm finally a goddamn action figure! Really a dream come true to be immortalized in plastic form...especially for such a geek and hardcore toy guy like myself. I may not be some famous-type "artist" like I thought I may have been when I was a kid with those kinda daydreams (Lord knows I've tried) but, it's things like this that make me realize that I am truly successful because I HAVE influenced someone in a positive way. For any of you that have ever given a shit, past, present or future. You have made it all worth it and I thank you. - Soda figure by Guy Bernice-

FOUND! Unopened copies of MEOW by VIOLET DAYDREAM!

Posted by Soda on August 12, 2018 at 10:15 PM

Whoa...hey guys. SO, 11 unopened copies of the long out of print and highly sought after album, MEOW by my old band Violet Daydream have been found. Our bass player, Mike, recently cleaned out old boxes in a closet and found a handful of copies of the record that got us a production deal when we were very young kids. It has been hailed as a classic and I am so very happy to have been a part of that magic. I now have put the copies up for sale in the BUY STUFF section. Get it while you can!

My first dive into the Enamel Pin Game!

Posted by Soda on May 15, 2018 at 6:45 AM

Hey guys! So, as you know I do my SODA’S CRAFTY CHAOS project in which I make candles, light switch covers, prints…etc. I wanted to announce that today; I will release my first run of enamel pins! I wanted it to be very special SO…it is an ode, a bit of a tribute, to my favorite band, JELLYFISH. I figured, what better way to start this endeavor than to bring something awesome like this to the still existing Jellyfish community. I will be bringing more pins to life down the line but for now, head over to my store and grab your set, limited to ONLY 30 SETS!
