I'm Vincent Frank De Benedetto, New York Times-quoted-and-cited writer, philosopher, Agape Master, musician, inventor, long-term family caregiver, and more, full bio here. THE FSD GROUP is the title of my new company, the business framework representing and uniting my fourteen fledgling business entities. "FSD" is the term formed by the initials of the full name of my Father: Frank Salvatore De Benedetto, the de facto Founder of THE FSD GROUP.
Eight of the divisions of THE FSD GROUP comprise the MESSAGE OF HOPE/DE BENEDETTO MUSIC & WRITING STUDIO/(MOH or DE BENEDETTO STUDIO, for short), ultimately the most important grouping within that larger corporate framework, and at whose Internet home you now reside. Indeed, most of the more-developed projects are writing or language-related, or musical, and thus fall under the heading of the MESSAGE OF HOPE/DE BENEDETTO MUSIC & WRITING STUDIO.
Note that the Message of Hope Music & Writing Studio is a separate entity from MESSAGE OF HOPE the musical project or band, and indeed the latter, the band, formally exists under the auspices of the former, the Studio.
The eight basic divisions of the DE BENEDETTO STUDIO are:
The projects of the DE BENEDETTO STUDIO are also presented by website.
I'm from a talented and ambitious family. My writing has been cited and quoted by The New York Times. My Father, a composer, was on television: a guest on the Joe Franklin television program. My Uncle Joe was a painter. I've corresponded with 1.) Steve Jobs, legendary founder of Apple Computer, who responded to my letter, 2.) Mary "Sean" Young, legendary Blade Runner actress who played replicant "Rachael" in the original 1982 seminal Blade Runner film, who also responded to my letter to her, and 3.) in an important effort in "musical forensics," I also corresponded with Katherine Powers before her death, who also responded to my letter, the last surviving person with an immediate family connection to lyricist Chet Powers, her brother (aka "Dino Valenti"), composer of the classic 1967 song Get Together, famed musical work known the world over and permanently associated with the Summer of Love. The song proffers one of the most profound and persuasive presentations advocating Brotherly Love ever found in any creative work, manifest in: melody, plaintiveness of vocal, and especially lyrics.
Read my full bio here.
Though my creative output is diverse and thus crosses fields and industries, my most important work is written and musical, hence the logical need for a separate master organizational entity for these two areas, the DE BENEDETTO MUSIC & WRITING STUDIO, officially based as of November 2019 on this web page.
As a Commune-ist, that is, one advocating for all of society the values of the Commune: brotherhood, sharing, mutual aid, sacrifice when necessary, mutual provision of goods and services, actively tending to each other's needs in every sphere of life, in fact, in other words, Love, I'd prefer to give away my work to anyone who wants or needs it. As global society has yet to become so elevated, however, and still employs socially and morally primitive mechanisms like money, I simply can't do that, yet. Accordingly, I'm forced to attempt to monetize, that is, convert to saleable form, all my work, much, though not all of which, is listed and briefly described, below.
Thankfully, the entire point of my work in social science, all my work, is to effect a global society where such backward practices have been eliminated, consigned to the dustbin of history.
The following projects are most developed, meaning, closest to completion and generation of income. You'll notice that each has its own website:
BOOKS IN DEVELOPMENT

Social Science & Political Theory

Inventor, fictional Knarfian language, first creative work thereto telling the tale of the three happy brothers Slappo, Grilbee, and Wonker, the first of more than one children's book based on the fictional Knarfian language, irresistible to children, yet a potent pedagogical tool for assisting them to pronounce every sound in the English language.

DE BENEDETTO STUDIO PROJECTS LISTED BY WEBSITE
This is a more concise list of projects than that above, as it has tighter, that is, more clearly and strictly defined, criteria for inclusion.
Relative to the projects that comprise the above list, this list, below, includes projects with a live website, and thus completed or closer to completion, whether intended for commercial introduction, or not.

OUR BETTER SELVES

OPEN LETTER TO JJ ABRAMS
Laments and discusses the deleterious influence of Director JJ Abrams on both the Star Trek and Star Wars franchises.
Explores the nature of art.
Blade Runner 2049 Must Include Rachael
Justice and cinema project, to redress the misjudgment of making the very long-awaited sequel to the iconic sci-fi film Blade Runner, without including noted actor Mary Sean Young and her iconic Blade Runner character Rachael. The sequel is called Blade Runner 2049.
Note, November 2019: I just found out that Ms. Young, while not appearing in the sequel, was technically associated with it, and in so learning I concomitantly learned that she may have prevaricated (lied) regarding her association with the film. I had several email exchanges with her prior to the release of the film and she asserted that she had no association with it. I must learn more about precisely when *she* found out that the production company responsible for the film, Alcon Entertainment, had intended to use her likeness for the film--before or after she declared to me that she had no association with the film and that the relevant powers-that-be had glaringly omitted her entirely from the project.
This is important because in earlier years Ms. Young was a crusader for a more sensitive and honest Hollywood; even now . If her actions in this case hue to the injurious opposing standard, all for the sake of her career, it's a naked example of just how the system of slavery called "capitalism," that planet Earth so desperately needs to elimate, can eventually wear down even the most moral and enlightened crusader.

DE BENEDETTO STUDIO - MORE
As serious as I've been over the years about creating music, it's my Father Frank Salvatore De Benedetto, musical composer, writer, pencil-sketch artist, and intellect, who first had professional demo tapes made, and ventured into New York City on multiple occasions, often with his songwriting partner, JP, to promote his own original composition. My Father also appeared on the Joe Franklin Television Show as the composer of Let Us Talk About the People, serious candidate for official New Jersey state anthem.
Accordingly, I consider my Father the inspiration for, and spiritual and titular head of, THE FSD GROUP, the parent company of DE BENEDETTO MUSIC & WRITING STUDIO, and, at least, the spiritual head of this latter entity.
DE BENEDETTO MUSIC & WRITING STUDIO is a division of THE FSD GROUP, whose Corporate Headquarters is here on the East Coast of the United States, about fifteen minutes from New York City. At an unspecified future date the facility will open to all staff. At that time, Team MOH members will be invited to freely make use of the space as their professional base of operation, to work, rest, eat, network, and socialize with other employees of THE FSD GROUP (i.e. other members of TEAM MESSAGE OF HOPE).
Investment & Assistance Wanted
DE BENEDETTO MUSIC & WRITING STUDIO seeks entrepreneurially-minded individuals for whom our message of love and hope resonates, to invest time and/or money. You'd be a member of TEAM MESSAGE OF HOPE, or simply TEAM MOH.
If you've carefully read one or more of my key creative works or ideas, above, or this or any of my other approximately 30 web sites, or listened to any of my musical material, and found yourself awed, impressed, or simply drawn to my unique combination of intellect, values, facility in language and music, dynamism, and singular devotion to saving the world through Love, in a deftly commercial manner that will likely produce both a radically changed world and a rich group of investors and assistants, JOIN ME!
Email me immediately or for further information read carefully through this additional key investing resource.
I need assistance in part because of my full-time role as parental caregiver, which I've been doing now for almost 20 years. I do it because when it comes to my principal conceptual tool, LOVE, and the system of belief and behavior built upon it, I walk the walk--no matter the personal cost. Anything less would impugn my integrity--and would thus obviously render suspect or invalid my work as a social scientist, philosopher, and writer, which I won't let happen, as my projects are built on my integrity in executing the philosophy that I assert as the best available for humankind.
Such dedication, however, comes at a huge personal and professional cost, as it leaves precious little time for much of anything else--like continuing to develop and bring to fruition the various writing, music, and other projects falling under the rubric (category or group) of the De Benedetto Studio.
Accordingly, I need help--which is where persons like you come in.
One or more of my unique and powerful projects are expected to produce spectacular profit, that will be shared very generously with loyal team members. For example, when I net $1M from any of my revenue streams, books, music, software, t-shirt design, invention idea, etc., key Team Members will likely receive something like $1/2M; that's $500,000. Each time I earn big--you will earn big. You have my word.
There is no cost to apply for a position on TEAM MESSAGE OF HOPE, working for THE FSD GROUP, THE DE BENEDETTO MUSIC & WRITING STUDIO, in particular. But understand that, though remuneration will be delayed and cannot be categorically guaranteed, these are real jobs, requiring commitment, competence, and diligence, nonetheless.
