“Certain writers can cook. But other writers know how to delight the senses. William Fredrick Cooper takes it one step further and tantalizes us with UNBREAKABLE. An emotional, enjoyable read, from the very first page to the last taste you will find yourself wanting more. The characters are well crafted and the story will resonate long after we are finished the literary journey. This author has an ear for words akin to MJ’s ear for rhythm. Thank you, William, forgiving us a book that is both impossible to put down and as addictive as the intro to ‘Billie Jean.’”

Shred guitar: It takes an extremely talented musician to be able to play this music. Alek is, and his latest album, an EP called Panopticon is a trip through his life and various emotions through different phases of his last decade.
From his Bandcamp page: During my last 10 years of professional music experience I went through many emotional states. Being in numerous different projects and acts gave me insight into a large scope of personal mindsets, ranging from experiencing the lowest of disapproval and despise, to the highest bliss of love and acceptation. This EP’s musical realm depicts all those emotions about the world and what they came down to. I look at it as a Panopticon, a perfect all seeing prison, where a single guard is the omni-observant. The big question stands: are we the guard, or the prisoner? I hope this music gets you a bit closer to my innermost world.
We are looking forward to hearing about his experiences and how they shaped this incredible musical masterpiece. We'll also be listening to 3 of the songs from the album.
