Storm Clouds Rolling On By Put On A Nice Show
Recently I joined a wonderful group of ukelists. Joe Cardozza is the Ukleadies simply amazing teacher. Everyone knows Joe from his musical partnership with RENEE and JOE MUSIC and from the Bandit Kings, but did you also know that he gives private music lessons in the comfort of your own home? For more information about Cardoza Music, visit Joe’s website here.
You can download RENEE and JOE’s first full length studio recording, Dreamsteering, here. I am a fan of Renee’s singing and so far, my favoirte track is their beautiful song “Molly,” but I haven’t yet had a chance to listen to the entire album of songs.
Dreamsteering was recorded in Gloucester at Bang a Song Studio, and was engineered and mixed by Tony Goddess and Jen Morrison.
The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.

A German film crew is here on Rocky Neck for a couple of days filming on George Sibley’s wharf, which is now a lobster shack restaurant. Fun to watch.
Moolongz become very sad when they encounter humans who are not evolved enough to see or hear them, which is why they have decided to remain on Earth, to help humans evolve and become the joyful, fulfilled, abundant beings they were created to be. Soon many humans will begin to say: “I See Moolongz”, which Moolongz will be overjoyed to hear. Can you see Moolongz?
When Henri Smith brings New Orleans Friends & Flavours, featuring Grammy-winner Amadee Castenell to Cape Ann Marina’s Waterfront Pavilion on August 29, he’ll be helping to raise money for the Cape Ann YMCA — and he’ll release his new live CD recorded at The Larcom Theatre last March.
This will be Henri’s first live CD and it features stellar guests, including Grammy-winners Charles Neville and Amadee Castenell along with young, rising stars — all brought together by Henri Smith, one of the country’s premier band leaders.
Recorded and mixed by Bill Winn (whose award-winning credits include Whitney Houston and Herbie Hancock among many others), this CD is destined to become a classic — and you can get yours signed at the concert.
Henri Smith concerts have been selling out, so you probably shouldn’t procrastinate.
Get your tickets now (right here) and then you can relax the rest of the summer.

Inge Berge is among the finest and most sophisticated
songwriters on Cape Ann. His lyric is sharp. His music is
self-contained and utterly complete. And his right hand hits
a perfect groove on the guitar – every time. World class all
the way. ~ Fly

The Scent of Paint.
“my studio is in my kitchen. the oil paint gets messy. i have nearby
sheets of blotting paper to cover this up when i am done working for
the day. i don’t need inspiration to work. i just work. right now i’m
still working on the 22″ square with the standing figure. it’s leaning
against a gold verre eglomise of keys. it’s not finished.
this morning the scent of the paint was a bit heavy in the kitchen.
i took the paper off the palette. got out the easel and started to work.
decided to take the figure off the center of the canvas. re drawing,
trying to relate some color notes. not too picky. just trying to
stay out of the center.
2 hours this morning brings me to this. i will leave the set up for a bit.
go for a short walk. have some lunch. and start again. i have six hours
to paint. or stretch another canvas. maybe both.”
best, and onward.

Daily Discussion- What Is Proper Etiquette When It Comes To Dogs Barking In Your Neighborhood Throughout The Evening/Night?
I wonder how the thought process goes for dog owners whose dogs are outside and bark throughout the evening and into the night (like non-stop barking).
Do they much like the dog lovers whose dogs jump up on you and get your clothes all filthy think it’s cute when they bark all night outside as well?
You think those dog owners are saying to themselves “Ahhh, that sweet melody of my dog barking away at bunny rabbits in the yard all night, I bet all our neighbors love listening to our dog just as much as we do. Isn’t it just music to your ears and oh so soothing when you’re trying to go to bed. puts me to sleep every time”
I’m not the kind of guy that ever wants to call the po po or animal control on their neighbors. I’d really just like them to realize that there are neighbors out there that just might not appreciate their dog barking all night the way they do.
What are your thoughts on the subject? Have you ever encountered this and how did you handle it? Leave a comment on this post and explain what course of action or non-action you would take.
