GREEN MONKEY on the i-RADIO!
Thought I should let you know that I will be a guest on Hollow Earth Radio tomorrow (Sunday) from 4-6:00 pm.
Will be playing a variety of whatnots that you cannot hear everyday, so it should be fun.
Tune in, turn on, drop in, etc!

Have spent the last few days working on remastering stuff. Preparing a new CD of Jeff Kelly home recordings for release. Will digitize Melting Fish today. Decided I need a stand alone CD burner.

Hey Music Lovers -
I had a crazy idea last night on my way home that could be fun.
It is simple -invite anyone and everyone who is interested to make a video of one of the songs on Tom Dyer – Songs from Academia Vol. 1 and post it on youtube.com. At the end of the month or so, I’ll put out a Survey Monkey to our mailing list and let everyone pick the best one. The winner will get a yet to be determined prize – I’ll buy ‘em lunch, a 100% genuine French Beret at Byrnie Utz Hats in Seattle (directors need one right?) or something.
Wait a minute you say, do I need fancy equipment to do this?
Nope. Just a computer with Windows Movie Maker (comes with Windows) or iMovie (ditto) and an MP3 of whichever song you want to do, which you can get off this website. Anything fancy beyond that is just icing on the cake.
Drop me a line if you wanna play – I’ll keep a list of whatever is going on. And do feel free to forward this to any prospective videographers you may know!

So the Huskies gagged and the Seahawks stunk, but Yoko Ono has a new album and it’s GREAT!
The following 100% real exchange took place on Facebook yesterday:
YOKO ONO! Just got her new Plastic Ono Band disc “Between My Head and the Sky.” Awesome!
Who needs more Beatle’s re-do’s when you can have this?
A Facebook friend
Would you please explain the appeal of Yoko Ono to me.
I’ve really tried to understand and I just don’t get it.
hmmm. Well, there’s 3 main kinds of Yoko.
There’s the long jamming warbley type vocal thing like on Side 2 of “Live Peace in Toronto” that drives most people nuts. I sorta respect it, but don’t have a lot of need for it. Too screechy.
There’s the kinda folky Yoko that she did in the mid 70′s on “Fly” that I have even less use for.
Not screechy enough.
Then there’s the edgy-pop Yoko, typified by her tracks on “Double Fantasy”
(which I liked way better than John’s), “Season of Glass” and “Walking on Thin Ice.” Ahhhh – just right!…
This is #3!
Thanks! I think I have primarily exposed to the first version.
There you have it! NEW YOKO = GREAT!
