On 2/2/2010, the artist formerly known as Timothy Harada passed into oblivion.

And from out of the smoldering ashes of the funeral pyre emerged the resurrected TVC-16 - Son of TVC-15, brother of HVC-3, singer, writer, thinker, trickster, bodhisattva and now podcast host.

TVC-16 has emerged from a sea of change with a new single: It's All Up to You, produced by Remi Desroques of Wave Reader Productions and he is in the process of recording a full CD with him, featuring Yuji Kasai on guitar.

Though TVC-16 has adopted many nomenclatures over the years, including Debussy Xanthankis, Debut X, Timmy Gianakos, Tim VanCampen, and Timothy Harada, as Shakespeare once wrote, "a rose of any other name smells just as sweet." Therefore, with his resurrection, TVC-16 has dissolved all of his former masks to reveal his true self.

TVC-16 is the son of TVC-15 (you may or may not remember the song written about her by David Bowie during his drug tripping days, but even he doesn't remember).

TVC-16 left Eagle Peak in Kuon Gonjo to come to this muddy swamp to show other Earthlings their true nature as Buddhas.

With a voice of "wonderful sound," TVC-16 sings, writes, laughs, swims naked in the ocean, dances and does many other things we won't mention here.

In one of his former incarnations, TVC-16 was a student at the new Soka University of America in Orange County California, the still evolving premier institute of peace, environmental, self transformation, empowerment studies of the 21st century. His writings from that great citadel of learning have been published in four books (See The Collected Writings From Soka University of America). There he learned (among many other things) through the great teachers, incredible fellow students and from his mentor in life, Daisaku Ikeda that, yes it is true, as Daisaku Ikeda wrote, "A great revolution in just one single individual will help achieve a change in the destiny of a society and, further, will enable a change in the destiny of humankind."

In a prior incarnation TVC-16, wrote a semi-autobiographical, Buddhist discovery novel, Myth Shattering, where he appears as "Debut X."

"Let your soul fly free and naked" and take the journey through evolution with TVC-16 on his new podcast: The Peace From the Far East Podcast.

Oh yeah I forgot to say, Adonis tried to go to the grand canyon one spring break in our shorts, not checking the weather and it was snowed out and we drove though a blizard on the way and there was zero visability in the park so they wouldn't let us in, so we had to watch an IMAX 3D tour of grand canyon in Grand Canyon City.

My old CD and book can be found all over the internet, by searching Timothy Harada, but yes adonis has copies of both, but new CD will be out hopefully by summer. I still haven't seen Avatar, because movies are so expensive in Japan (almost never go) and they only play them in English a few days each week, usually on the more expensive nights, over $20.00 plus you have to pay 3.00 for the glasses and you can't bring your own even if you just baught them seeing the same movie last week.

Yes I can't wait to be home, I hope it's sunny when I'm there.

I've also never been to Lost Wages. I don't know why I've always been alergic to the idea of going there. I must have died their in a past life.

Hi Tim, ahh TVC-16 that is_____Have not read Myth Shattering. Perhaps Adonis has a copy I can borrow, I will ask him. Anyhow we'll all be seeing you soon. Have a nice flight back to the land of the Rockies, the Great Smokey mountains, the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Yellowstone and of course Las Vegas ( which is currently eperiencing a little bit of financial distress, or so I hear) Are you up on the situation in North Korea perhaps? So where can I get a copy of your new CD? What is your impression of Avatar by the way? I'll sign of with a saki toast "Happy Hosshaku Kenpon"
