The (Original) Love Theme arrangement….

[su_youtube url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NuMt1eXcVgw&list=PL6190678AC679EA41&index=45"]

In loving memory. Dominique. Mother, Daughter, Writer, Artist, Creator, Educator, Thinker, Researcher, Philosopher, Colleague, Nurturer and Friend. 1970-2012. RIP Dear Heart.

A better version....//draft located recently avoids FB backlinks..."raw cut" WIP: Recover chops post-surgery to remake an at-minimum better recording. This arrangement was created in memory of Dominique....who shined everlasting hope, knowledge, honor, courage and above all LIGHT and happiness into this writers life. Dear readers - since so many of you listen to me and actually take to heart some of my suggestions and ideas...please visit the blog her loving stepmom created... it will enlighten you, warm your heart and give details as to the best way to help Dominique's two children. Mainly, if you go to amazon.com and purchase one of her wonderful nonfiction books on film theory and history, most of that money will support her family. She far out-shined me in writing ability, and if you maniacs find my web junk readable... (you do ...why? idk...maybe see a shrink?) you will greatly enjoy her work. There is a great deal of unpublished works and stories and screenplays...even film that is as yet unpublished...how to get that done is a task I promised to complete, but 1000s of pages of notes, scripts, stories, storyboards and tapes are sadly missing (at least to me) we spent years assembling this work...it would be a great shame if this work is staling in a garage or storage unit or worse, in a landfill. All I have is 5 pages of notes (just brainstorm scribble she wrote down) and what I can remember....they are not my stories, Dominique painstakingly wove them over a lifetime...all I did was transcribe, organize, edit and consult. Some of the screenplays would blow your mind...2 or 3 of them I could recreate from memory, but the quality would be reduced and if I sold them? Of course every cent will be donated to her family. Finding the notes? hard. Finishing the work and marketing it? The three I can roughly outline in my head will sell. the rest that my awful STM has lost...same. "10 out of 10 studios WOULD BUY AGAIN."

SoCal Drum Corps Weekend…

I haven’t been able to hit a one-two-punch BD/SCV show since 2011. So this was a big deal. There isn’t much to review because I was mostly working and socializing. I missed every other corps, but that doesn’t bother me so much. I wanted to check out Devs in the Read more…

Best improvised radio bit ever….

By Greg Hughes and Anthony Cumia, you can hear them live on Sirius/XM Radio Monday through Friday. Still no “hole” after all these years and still fighting for free speech – unparalleled in cringe humor. After Greg, Tony and the master Phil Hendrie retire there will be little quality-innovative, hardworking, Read more…
