Imagine discovering something so profound it could change the entire world for the better. David Posey believes he has. David is autistic and along with his brother Joe, suffered violence as a child. David has spent his fifty years wanting to be normal, loved and engaged in life, but simply can´t get beyond his past and his disability. David believes that what most people believe is racism is actually something else. When he demonstrates it, people change immediately and for the better. It is through this device he believes he can heal the world and heal himself.David´s brother Joe was the best high school basketball player in America and the events that ruined David’s life were brought about by Joe´s pursuit of his dream. Joe survived and prospered despite a nightmarish journey in Viet Nam. The Content of Character tells the multigenerational story of a melting pot American family from David and Joe´s childhood onward. David is the voice. He builds a relationship with Amanda, a co-worker in the market research firm where he operates the waiting room for interview subjects. Despite his inability to express himself with any device but a quoted song lyric or a line from a television show he manages to tell her his story. He is building a new life until his big Uncle Bjorn, a giant from the north woods of Maine, explains real life as he sees it; both the good and the bad. This causes David to reverse directions and he finally reveals the horrors and the truth of his childhood to Amanda. Despite all the pain that falls into each life, David survives, achieves, and finds love. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phil Ross.

(2016/Strawberry Rain) 12 tracks, Limited Edition to 500 copies. It´s A Shame Come Lay Beside Mc There Wasn´t Time D Day, C Day End Game Another Lifetime Gone Bob Then Uongs From ´Mc Margin Fading Ways, Fading Faces It´s Getting Harder To Breathe Border Retreat Deserted Shores Holy Loch Time (Reprise) The title for this collection of songs reflects my sense that the music I am writing is so far from the mainstream commercial scene that it was/is, along with anything attempted with individuality and integrity, invariably marginalized, hence the title ´Songs from the Margin´. The boundaries that were breached by ´´the underground´´ during the sixties into the seventies have long since been repaired and boundless banalities have returned to hold sway once more. Popular music (and alternative music too has its similar herd instinct) is a vacuous pursuit of the already familiar, hence the domination of music which is firmly genre fixated. Yet there is so much music that is more accomplished than the over-exposed chart fodder that saturates our awareness and public places. However I hear few complaints from the consumer addicted public. Most accept what they are enticed to buy. Roy Harper couldn´t have put it more concisely in the sleeve notes for his epic ´Lifemask´ in 1973. I feel that music has been even more devalued since those heady days. It´s cheap or free, as expendable as last year´s fashions and its intrinsic worth is entirely nebulous. And worst of all generally no one wants to hear this expressed as it is deemed too negative. I think it is about confronting the reality that exists, but for most it´s a shrug of the shoulders and a bland ´´What can you do?´´ I leave you with the thought that those who care nothing for content, who can articulate the least the reasons for liking anything are always well catered for. Perhaps this explains to some degree why this project has taken so long to ever be available. Finally, my thanks to the musicians and all those who helped in technical and production matters, i.e, Steve Hall & Walter Mets. Thanks escpeially to Michael Klein for all the work in rescuing and remixing the songs from rapidly disintergrating mutli-track tape in the nineties - that was in the last century!

Jacques Offenbach (1819–80) ranks among the greatest composers of lighthearted operettas, and his famous songs continue to charm millions who know neither their names nor their composer. This volume features the sheet music for 38 popular songs from 14 operettas. All are reproduced from the original sheet music — a few from the original piano-vocal scores, and some with lively pictorial covers. Contents include four songs from Orpheé aux enfers (Orpheus in the Underworld), five songs from La belle Hélène, four songs from La vie parisienne, six songs from La Grande Duchesse de Gérolstein, seven songs from La Périchole, three songs from La fille du tambour-major, and more. The complete French texts appear on the music pages, and a separate section offers English translations. All songs were chosen by Antonio de Almeida, a renowned conductor and authority on Offenbach, who also provides an informative Introduction.

Internet piracy: It’s an eternal battle pitting indies versus corporations, free spirits against the money-grubbing Scrooge McDucks of the world. Right? Sort of, sometimes - maybe not. Freeloading takes a critical, cool look at a near-pervasive phenomenon that involves almost everyone who taps a keyboard: Beyond that, it´s a reminder of the truism that for every action there are consequences. What happens when we pirate a favorite work of art - a song, book, or movie? And as importantly: What, if anything, can or should be done about it? Internet piracy has created unlikely allies. On the one hand, there are original creators of content, including artists and corporate copyright holders - on the other, legions of free-spirited consumers who see themselves in the hacker/OWS tradition. Author Chris Ruen, himself a former dedicated freeloader, came to understand how illegal downloads can threaten an entire artistic community after spending time with successful Brooklyn bands who had yet to make a significant profit on their popular music. The product of innumerable late-night, caffeine-fueled conversations and interviews with contemporary musicians such as Craig Finn of The Hold Steady, Ira Wolf Tuton of Yeasayer, and Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio, Freeloading not only dissects this ongoing battle - casting a critical eye on the famous SOPA protests and the attendant rhetoric - but proposes concise, practical solutions that would provide protection to artists and consumers alike. 1.
