Florence tablecloth,
Hand-made, busked for transaction…
Holds dear memories.

In life’s Fall season,

Hearts remember youth’s music…

Meet Sir Groovy

leave a comment »

David Leibowitz is Sir Groovy in my book! As Chairman of SirGroovy, he oversees an organization dedicated to music by connecting “TV Producers, Music Supervisors, Filmmakers and AD Executives to indie labels worldwide.” I had the chance to sit down with David at Digital Hollywood this Fall. Here is what we discussed:

Bob Dylan Must Be Santa!

with one comment

Some years ago I saw Bob Dylan play with Paul Simon in Northern California. It was a joy to see these sages play a double-bill and perform duets together. But, Bob keeps on playing and touring, constantly writing new music and giving new voice to old songs. Love him or hate him, he has been one of the most prolific song writers of my parents generation, my generation, and probably my children’s generation, too. Yeah… WOW!

Last month, this musical American bard released “Christmas in the Heart” an album that will raise money for charities around the world.

Dylan has been much criticized for his music video of “Must be Santa” (see below). I have to disagree with the critics who think it’s just too bizarre. What is Santa but play and merriment? This polka-infused version of the song is nothing but fun as Dylan oscillates from Sage to bartender to leader of a party of merry-makers! Pat Boone can sing about Mommy kissing Santa Claus and Dylan can’t have a little fun with this Christmas myth?  Bob Dylan has a long history of doing Christmas right with plenty of respect, even on this album. I, for one, finished the video and felt like gettin’ up and dancing to celebrate Christmas. Not bad for a new rendition of an old Christmas Song.

Don’t take my word for it, decide for yourself:

Ready to Launch

Screen Shot of Entry to aSiteAboutSomething.com

Tonight Press Forward Publications will launch aSiteAboutSomething.com. Promotional material of the site describe it this way: “Over two years in the making by a small coalition of the willing, talented and inspired and an even smaller budget, the site promotes the diverse novels and songs of Richard Geller.”

Coinciding with the launch of the website, Saxon Mills has produced a music video of one of Richard’s songs. “Wishing” is a song about people helping each other during hard times. It was my pleasure to work with Richard and the team of actors and filmmakers to realize a vision for a video with a powerful message. Releasing this video during what we hope is the bottom of the recession; we are curious to see if the piece touches a note with people, if people hear a call to action. The text “help where you can” flashes on screen at the end of the video.

Whether “Wishing” becomes a large commercial success, or remains an inspiration to a few, we wish Richard Geller and his team much success with their innovative approach to online, viral, and social marketing of Richard’s books and songs.
