  • Found a new friend named Eli who knows probably a good 75% pf my musical tastes
  • Got a new tattoo that says Let Go & Let God!!!
  • Haven’t written any song of the day’s for IVM for a while so just did a few. Am up to 476 currently
  • Have been going through the TV show Bones-it’s really good
  • Work has been getting better slowly, but surely
  • Working through the book of Acts-need to read the Bible more
  • The laptop has bit the dust (Can’t empty the recycle bin & this has caused the computer to lose tons of space)

  • Produced another couple of shows for Ripper Radio

  • Most recent bands I have seen are Evergreen Terrace, Needtobreathe & Judah and the Lion. Missed the Zauntee show as was so expensive. Also saw an acquaintance of mine’s new band where they are keeping their identities hidden. Kinda remind me of Slipknot but more screams. Not a Christian band at all.

My YouTube Channel


I, Timo, have spent many years involved in some way with the Christian music industry and has seen well over 400+ shows. Will be attending Needtobreathe & Judah & the Lion in May 2024. Saw Owl city in March.

Have an awesome son, Tyler, who is now 16 & likes video games & fixing his car.

Began my adult career as a regular Army soldier & currently work at State Farm Insurance in Complex Claims. I graduated with a B.A. in Mass Communications in Broadcast Journalism from Winthrop University & hold the CPCU, FLMI, AINS, ALMI, AIC, AIS & ACS insurance designations along with the EOM Level 1 Certification.

Run an automated online radio station & website “Casting Such a Thin Shadow” which has given me the opportunity for several live telephone interviews over the years. I DJ & produce an online radio show currently for Ripper Radio which airs primarily in the USA, but also in Japan & Great Britain. As far as the music on this site goes, the genres reach from the 60s or even earlier to literally tomorrow! The station runs 24/7 as of September 2020.

Toastmasters, I have completed my CL, CC & ALB public speaking designations while holding the VP of Education & Treasurer offices.

Write music reviews (Song of the Day) for Indie Vision Music.

Aspired to be a news reporter & have considered producing or directing newscasts. Here at State Farm, I have considered the following areas: Creative Services to work on video production, commercial underwriting, talent acquisition or leadership.

Prepped for the voice for Quinn Ravensword for a television series The Last Dragonslayer which is being helmed by Kandy Kane from the shock rock band Rackets & Drapes, but is currently in hiatus.

As a wannabe musician, I play bass guitar & drums & dabble in electric/acoustic guitar & have amps, mics, 2 basses, acoustic electric & an electric guitar, electronic drums, 2 amps, 1 separate head, mixer, violin. I have never found any like minded individuals nearby that were ever interested in music. Yeah it has been a lonely struggle. Most of my fave musicians have rarely been heard of by most & those that have have left the Christian realm. IE Underoath
