My birthday was full of surprises the number of birthday wishes was a lot higher than I believed it would be,Thank you all for the support
and kind words
its been a strange year, I suddenly started writing books
a few months ago and i have not stopped
I am currently writing a Book Called "Xanda"
its set twenty years in Kiki's future or twenty years
after the third book of Kiki and is from the point of view
of her daughter Xanda, I don't write to be popular,
I write because I believe in what i am doing
and its the same for my songs, I believe in them.
I have been adjusting things and closed some sites
the Internet has changed and I don't want to be left behind.
Most of what is happening now is more and more
middle men have taken over and I will not pay
someone else for something I created.
we now live in a world were we will buy rubbish
because the adverts tell us how great it is and
the real talent is being left behind,
I will continue to write and produce songs
for as long as it is possible for me to do so
but I fear the money men have taken over
and the rest of us have been left behind,
I live off free sites and services
without them my music will die, so support
the free sites and give talented people a hand
where ever you can.
My New Books - Click Books menu
I have finely finished the three books of Kiki and they
have been published so you can join Kiki
on her adventures across three galaxy's
Mini Update on a massive scale
I have added a new menu category Books in the menu above

every other page, the Music page now has my songs and also
I have a new Video page, I have also included my personal Twitter page

Click image to play song
Secret Service is finely released, I started this song
after I wrote vagabonds and villeins but I did not Finnish
it until recently, the song says it all I don't need to explain it
but what you will not know the original version was called
they do it like Rabbits and was a sexual innuendo style song
after Manny years pondering what to do with the song
I came up with secret service a complete rewrite of the original
but the basic sound is the same another thing I did was to release
it for free on reverberation as part of my new name a gift just for you.
The new name is William john butlers Muzopia
because others have ripped off my name to sell products
that i don't endorse, muzopia is mine I own it
when I thought the name up i looked on all the search engines
to find it and i got a zero result that was 8 years ago
now there are variations on the name and even some clown
using my name, I cant afford to pay to protect it
i don't make any money from it so I have to put up with it
I have one variation on the name that i use and that is ArtZopia
yeps that's me, how long before that's ripped off.
The First book of Kiki
Its been a while and i am itching to get back to my music
but first i would like to let you know what i have been doing
over the last few mouths really most of you will know but
some will not I have written a book, five hundred pages not bad
for a song writer who only uselessly writes on page at a time
I spent more time on my book making it acceptable for kindle
than I spent writing it, it just fell onto the pages and i still
haven't stopped, yet the next book is being written now i have
just took a break to tell you about it
The book is about a young girl who daydreams not about
pop stars or move stars, but about finding the truth, finding
the lost history of her people, its her life all from her point of view
and is set one thousand years in the future, all but small
parts of our history is lost kiki comes back to our time
on her first mission and finds here that the secret agency's
are trying to take her world knowing that theirs will end
Kiki's world is idiotic and beautiful and gold it a nice color
but means nothing to them and money has no place ether
everything is free, so her world and our are vastly different
this is just the first mission she has many, I have written
the book so its real warts and all her lovers and every
aspect of her life is there she cant even use the toilet
with out me writing about it, so be warned this is now
pushover of a book it has many plots in many cultures
and Kiki likes her girlfriends allot, its a book of
discovery and mystery and can be very dark also
so is adults only.
I have to take my hat off the small army of friends
and fans who have followed my work over the years
,each time I say something stupid they put me back on
the right track again, so thank you, you inspire me.
I have some great ideas for muzopia
One is to strip away the music, so its like that time
when I was sixteen and singing on to a cassette tape
in my bedroom, Muzopia in the flesh, Like the song
evil minds in its original form, the way it was in
the 1980s it was a completely different song
the words had power and meaning
the 2005 version the music has the power
and the words are drowned out,
I love it that way don't get me wrong but only
I know what it was like, I may not do it, but I like the idea
so its worth looking into a little deeper
I picked up my guitar the other day, I broke a string,
and Then replaced it and I have been looking at it ever since
I don't have a writers block I just have yet another cold,
In part three insane I said Its hard to breath
well its the same with this cold.
Happy birthday Muzopia
On the 14,04,14 Muzopia will be Eight years old
so to celebrate I have re-released my first muzopia song
"Part three insane" released Originally on myspace
and had about 4000 plays, it was that what
encouraged me too continue and I look back
pleased with my musical career with great happiness
I feel muzopia made a mark
VAGABONDS AND VILLAINS:
The world has changed and not for the better
so I Know will attack this change in words and music.
This song is not a protest song its a direct attack,
remember that when you play it, i have spent many months
Checking out the information before i wrote this song
and this is from my perspective so its the emotional impact
more than the facts.that i write about.
i will let you look it up your self and not push the issues any more.
you have to listen 1st to know what i am talking about.Hint..
The Video is not like anything i have done in the past
i used free stock footage from http://www.beachfrontbroll.com
and the images only hint to the lyrics of the song
in a very gentle way.
i believe all my years of watching French cinema
Especially the time-laps motorway shots attracted me to them
and oh yes! the ultra high quality shots.
Since muzopias return i have had two local number ones
the first being (Me My girl and I)and Second (Seek U).
Me my girl and I Hit number one in just a 7 days
The fastest moving song ever for muzopia.
On 14/04/2006 I created a Studio Band called Muzopia
and with Muzopia I have made Five albums and Twenty videos and a few Thousand Photographs Everything was written /directed /edited and produced by me.I had a very large following all over the Net,
last count was coming close to 16,000 and made connections
to people all over the world and collaborated
with a selected few Singers and musicians,
during this time i also supported many human rights issues
and i feel happy and satisfied that using The muzopia name
and large network gave some help to others.
I closed muzopia down in January 2013
while it was still going strong, But Only Three months
later i reinvented it.
UPDATE: Muzopia Is Back
a few months down the line has shown me
that i need to re-start muzopia, i can't turn my back on it t now,
it became what is was in the first place and that was me.
This is my new journey.
I am back making music as Muzopia and as before
managing it under my own name William John Butler
Nothing much else will change
The directions i had been taking before had an endless pathway
and its a place i will be traveling for ever and a day.
