When I was about 15 years old I came to my Religious teacher (I studied in a Catholic School) and asked him why I felt more connect when I was surfing or skateboarding and not when I was at Church (we were obligated to attend mass in school). His answers was: "I think you are smoking too much weed!" I was shocked! First because I haven't even tried marijuana on that time, and second all I was looking for was comfort for the emotional issues that I was dealing with. Not satisfied he added: "You are most likely going to hell with your music taste!". I can tell you many stories, but this one was the last drop.
The funny part is until then I didn't even tried marijuana, and I decided to try afterwards. Believe it or not, it was one of my biggest spiritual experience. Bottom line is, Religious or not, you just don't say that to a 15 year old kid.
What is Rock-it-ology all about?
Rock-it-ology is like a religion, but not like the ones you know (we pay taxes), more like a sarcastic satire version of a Religion with a true message. Bottom line Rock-it-ology is about Art, Science and Vibe.
Art because it is the only thing that change the world since art gives us a different perspective so we can create the new.
Science because we can experience what works and what it does not work and create tools to help our world. However, needs to be science without sponsors.
Life is not about waiting the storm to pass neither about learning how to dance in the rain. Life is realizing your are the storm!

Well, Rock has been a huge passion of mine, but most important Rock saved me so many times from doing something stupid. I can truly say that rock saved my soul!
Why punk the world?
I grew up listening “voce so faz arte” which in Portuguese means you are a Punk. But not punk in a good way, punk in this case meaning you are worthless. However, is NOT LIKE THAT. Being a punk means you do not put up with crap, you live in the now, and you challenge the status quo.
