What's a Bonkleton?
I'm Bonkleton. My name is Jesse. I'm not important; I'm just some nerd.
What is important is people. What they think, what they feel, what they say. I am literally alive to care about people, even if I sometimes pretend that I'm supposed to care about myself.
I'm hopeless - I keep falling in love. The songs of souls are beautiful, and beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but when I think I see a beautiful soul, I find it hard to ignore.
I hear the songs of souls everywhere, literal music, written and spoken words, visual expressions, imaginary worlds, and even logical systems. Maybe it's projection on my part, but maybe it's a soul trying desperately to be heard in all the mental noise.
Our songs are mashups of all the songs we've listened to. My song is a unique blend of those I've listened to in my life. I love them for sharing their songs, since they've enriched my life more than I even realize.
This is where I share my recipe. This is the ingredients you need to make one Bonkleton. These are the songs you shuffle to make my playlist.
I'm the way I am for a reason, and that reason can't ultimately be about me. I must be me because I can benefit others. That's all I ask. I don't ask that my song become part of yours. It's not about me. I only hope my song can help you.
Our songs stay behind to sing the story of our lives, as the lyric goes. I don't want my story to be about me. I want my story to be about what I loved.
Thank you for hearing my song. Whatever form it may take, whatever method I may tell it, this is the song I was born to sing. It literally can't be anything else.
