*Ernie Haase & Signature Sound have now posted audio clips of all songs from their new project _Here We Are Again_. Go check them out! And take a look around their snazzy new website while you’re at it. I’m no professional web designer, but to me it appears to be a VAST improvement on the old one. Oh and guys… the matching red suits are baaaaaaad. Thumbs up.
*Speaking of EHSS’s new album, I appear to have had a sudden influx of new readers because my recent review of said album was included in EHSS’s latest e-letter. To the e-team, thanks for the reference, and to those of you who found my blog that way, welcome! Make yourself at home, and I hope you like what you read.
*At Terry Franklin’s request, Scott Fowler recently sent out a call for anyone who might have memorabilia related to the few nights back in ’91 or so when Terry subbed with the Cathedrals—photos, flyer, etc.—to scan it and e-mail it to him. If I have any readers who could help in this area, by all means send whatever you’ve got to Scott. He and Terry will both appreciate it!
*It’s neat to see Poet Voices back on the road. Nice trio, good history of singers and songs. New promo video here, new website here.
*If I can ever get around to it, I’m hoping to post a review of Declaration Trio’s new project _In Good Hands_ soon.
*There’s a new documentary coming out this year about the gender-cide of baby girls throughout the world, particularly East Asia (China, India, etc.) Watch the trailer, shudder, and pray.
*Obama can sing. Who knew? I’m not completely surprised though—musical talent, like athletic talent, tends to run strong in the black race. Perhaps he should leave politics and become a recording artist instead? We can only hope.
*I have now succeeded in uploading my cover of “Because You Loved Me” on Godtube. Now you can enjoy the (polite cough) unmatched brilliance of my voice WITH a sunset in the background. [NOTE: If you know me even remotely well, you know that was entirely tongue-in-cheek. But since I can sometimes be misunderstood even by people who should know better, I just wished to clarify.]
In all seriousness though, I didn’t think this was completely terrible, considering I gave myself less than a week to learn and practice it from scratch, but if you wanna hear this song SUNG by a SINGER, check this out. Not that it’s anything special, just another young Asian prodigy. Yawn.
*I survived my first calculus quiz yesterday. (It was only two questions long.) I like my prof. I spontaneously murmured in class the other day, “This is so much fun.” His response: “I think it’s fun,” smiling with satisfaction at the full blackboard. I was told I do a good impression of him. I’m a good mimic in general, whether it’s my mom, my dad, Jimmy Stewart, Barney Fife, or Heath Ledger’s joker. Voices and gestures. WEIRD, I know, but I’m actually not kidding. But I guess I’m especially good at geeky people who wear glasses, as a geek who wears glasses.
As usual, the thread is yours. I don’t get many comments on these for some reason. Go ahead guys… Rave about the new EHSS album! Or the joys of calculus! Or my stunning (or not-so-stunning) vocal chops! I don’t care… just discuss something.
