Who Do You Love? – Influential musician/bands

MidiMike

I am fairly new to the blogging world, but after a few months I have learned a lot. Recently, I was amazed at the response and the thoughtfulness in the lists provided by other bloggers in the community  on my Love/Hate post. Comments mentioned knowing me a little better and with so many of you posting your list I have been able to know some of you better as well. In addition to that, I thought it was actually a lot of fun. I would like to suggest another sharing of ideas. I would LOVE to have your thoughts on bands, artists and musicians that have influenced your life. I do not want to restrict this to bands per se, but to include individuals, songs, groups and bands or musicians. I will continue to post articles highlighting bands you may not be familiar with and I hope your answers will make…

Antibes was a Greek fortified town named Antipolis in the 5th century BC, and later a Roman town, and always an active port for trading along the Mediterranean. Today it’s an attractive and active town, popular with “foreigners” from Paris and the north of France, with non-French, and with the local population.

The natural beauty remains in the vieille ville (old town), with the ramparts along the sea and the long, arched protective wall along the port. There are plenty of little streets for exploring, restaurants of all types and prices, and lots of shops, from authentic little hardware/general-stores to tourist gift shops.

Ollie and Emma - The Series

image

Just finished the Mandy Phones Home shoot which was went extremely smoothly considering some very last minute alterations from the original idea.  With a great minimal crew that came from all over the island we shot another great clip of Madeleine Harber who is only getting sharper at her role of playing Emma’s vivacious hyper sister Mandy.  The show now goes in for editing so stay tuned to see her in action.

What’s great about this team is the spirit of making the show the best it can be.  Everyone jumped in on roles that are sometimes not their usual background but made it not only work but rocked it.  Writer/ Producer Cheri Jacobs was on set as an Assistant Director, Production Manager acted in a number of roles including providing the voice for Mandy’s friend on camera, Writer/Producer Tom Pogson stepped up for his debut as Director and Brew…

My Favorite Song: City of New Orleans; New Twist: Johnny Cash

PenneyVanderbilt

Twilight of American Rail Travel” means different things to different people. To me, it meant the period in the 1960’s until Amtrak when passenger service went downhill. More specifically, it was the “Empire Corridor” running along the Mohawk and Hudson Rivers to New York City. Before the “twilight”, well maintained, well patronized New York Central trains ran this route. When Amtrak began in 1971, service was sloppy, not as well patronized, and equipment was very “worn”.

My favorite song is “City of New Orleans” written by Steve Goodman and sung by Arlo Guthrie. It talks about the same period, but on the Illinois Central Railroad. Lots of similarities!

Found a Johnny Cash video of the song we thought you might enjoy.

“Riding on the City of New Orleans, Illinois Central Monday morning rail Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders,”

Yes, rode on train like that too. Although lot…
