Monday and a new week begins

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Monday, September 20, 2010

Today a close friend of Nancy's celebrates a birthday
Since I have met her I have come to know what a dear, wonderful person she is.

I am also aware that she comes and sits on The Couch just about every day.

Today, leave a comment for Aline and wish her a special birthday!





This evening on MUSIC ON THE COUCH I am thrilled to welcome Abigail and Lily Chapin. Their musical genealogy can not be denied; daughters of Grammy winner Tom, granddaughters of great jazz musician Jim and nieces of Harry, these two young ladies have talent inside.

Their new album TWO dropped the other day and we get to talk with them about their history and their future plans to support this album and beyond.

J. Everett Dutschke came into the live chat room for the show with Victor Wainwright and continued to come back week after week. I learned he was a musician who sings and plays guitar and goes by the name of Dusty. Along with Se'An Farris-on guitar, percussion and vocals, and a programmed drum beat they recorded GUITAR CZAR under the name of Dusty and the RoboDrum.

In the last month or so, Dusty has brought Courtney Phillips into the fold as a vocalist and keyboard player and to strengthen the sound of the band.

Performing what I call contemporary blues, they have a sound that will stay with you and make you a believer.


I posted over on Facebook yesterday and have made a mention of it here and TRAVIS over at "Trav's Thoughts" even gave me a special place on his new sidebar...BUT, this weekend I finally finished reformatting all the stories...so

Today I want to officially announce the opening of one of my sister sites. COUCH MATINEES is all done.

I went through and reformatted all the stories to get rid of the annoying colors that I insisted on using when I initially posted them. I standardized each post so they are all formatted alike. With the new template, I also used a teaser of the opening of each story on the main page.

Remember, you can get there from the set of links right under the header above.

I am also pretty happy with the header...

11 Of Your Sparks

  1. Travis Cody Says:
  2. I saw the stories pop up in my reader over the weekend. I'm glad this project finally rolled to the top of the list of to-do! The header looks fantastic as well. I'm looking forward to taking some time to revisit the stories.

    Now about MOTC...Mondays, dude. DWTS returns tonight, and the 49ers are on MNF. I'll have to start listening to the archive.

     
  3. TechnoBabe Says:
  4. Hubby and I are thrilled for you that you will be interviewing the Chapin younguns. I will check out their album TWO. You have certainly been busy. I added COUCH MATINEES to my reader. Good luck.

     
  5. I'm with Trav; your show is on a baaaad night. After football season, perhaps I can start listening live. Or, of course, if the game sucks. ;)

     
  6. Jay Says:
  7. I had a feeling MNF was going to interfere with the Couch. I'll be there, but I'll also be watching the game and tweeting. But, I'm good at multi-tasking. I'll replay the show in archives later in the week too. Just to give you an extra hit. I'm a giver like that. ;-)

     
  8. TRAVIS: Sorry about the reposting all weekend..
    I selected Monday, knowing it might be a problem with live listeners, but Monday's for musicians seemed to be the best night

    TECHNOBABE: Thanks..hope you listen in archives

    SONGBIRD: What? The Colts are not on! LOL Just remember to download

    JAY: Yeah, but again..it was more for the guests and you rock..actually listening to you right now

     
  9. Micky-T Says:
  10. Your fiction still makes me wonder.

    I think I read most of those over the last 3 years, I'll check them out!

     
  11. Micky-T Says:
  12. And Yes! the header is GREAT

     
  13. Mags Says:
  14. Hi there-just wanted to stop in...I know it's been a while. My head is kind of spinning, actually!!!

     
  15. MICKEY: Thanks my friend...you rock

    MAGS: HEY THERE..thought you lost me! LOL Hope you are well and the love is still keeping you warm (I know it is!)

     
  16. Yes, I know I can download; the problem is finding the time to listen to it afterwards! And, yes, I know it's not the Colts tonight (that was last night - *big cheesy smile*), but it's FOOTBALL, for cryin' out loud!

    Oh, and a meeting at school, and tae kwon do, and....yeah, you get the picture now?

     
  17. Mimi Lenox Says:
  18. Your fiction is for daylight reading hours. Boo!
