|That song I played last time backwards and forwards sped up–did I successfully create a desire for you to hear it regular? Well if so then you are triple-lucky, because you get to hear it THREE TIMES! Forward at regular speed! One produced up, one just guitar and vocals, and one guitar and piano! Tell me what you think! And enjoy!|

|Today a ditty I like to play on the piano, thoughts on force, and an a cappella arrangement of “Make Our Garden Grow”, written by Richard Wilbur (text) and Leonard Bernstein (music). This arrangement is by Jay Giallombardo, and the recording (for my chorus to learn the song from) is by Ben McDaniel.
I cannot stop singing this song in my head, last couple days.
On this 10-year anniversary of one of the most horrific events in modern memory, I thought I’d offer, for anyone who might care to hear, a song I wrote about it.
I happened to be living in NY at the time and so got a strong taste of the whole thing, the smell of destruction and of smoke, the grey dusty war-zone feel of the streets near ground zero after the tragedy, the general feeling of soberness in the city, and yet the great strength and sense of community that occurred.
This song was written on a piano at NYU in a building that had overlooked the twin towers, and is a reflection of my own feelings.
|Pretty exciting. This is the very first video podcast of the Should Be Famous Podcast. Boy are you in for a treat! (hee hee hee, ha ha ha, Oh HO HO HO!!!) Ok I can’t lie. You’re not really. But it does help me to explain gravity and acceleration (they’re the same thing).
And I threw in some other stuff as I played back some hot new recordings by my phenomenon of a sister, singer-songwriter/vocalist extraordinaire Courtney Atack.
The podcast is available in plain mp3 format as well (no video).
