Blue Tooth

I always wondered where they got that name. Blue Tooth...Blue Beard...Blue Moon...Blue Bird...What's with all the blue?

BTW, ever listen to the Joni Mitchell album called, "Blue"? It was the first one I bought, and I think it may be her best. Although I also love Hejira, even though I hated it at first. I might have liked it better if it was called, Blue Hejira.

if your video camera with hard drive has BLUETOOTH just put it next to the computer and the movie will JUMP into your computer. the pc willDETECT the nearness of its kin and suck up the film. Then upload to you tube. blietooth is the nameof wireless technology invented by the norway people. Their famous admiral was named mr bluetooth. REALLY!!

Sounds complicated, canarsie....it also sounds as though you're pretty tech-saavy (an area in which I seem to be lacking). I know what pc is, though, and by "tube", I think you mean "Youtube.com", "Cable" I definately know since I take pitcures with a digital camera and then upload them to my lap-top through a cable, and oh yeah, I watch alot of cable as well (The Simpsons, Family Guy, Who Wants to Be a millionaire - standard TV fare).

But the only thing I have not heard of is "vlietooth", or did you mean "viletooth"? That would be a good name for a heavy metal band.

"Viletooth": the band your dentist warned you about! Comming to your town this Summer on the Cavity-a-Palooza Tour 2007. Brush and Floss!

Modern Times

Good idea. Is there a camera that also takes video, or do I need a separate camera and video camera? Any recommendations? As you can see, I have not caught up on this aspect of technology.

Morristown

I had a gig last weekend in Morristown, New Jersey at a place called the Sushi Lounge. We were a duo of acoustic guitar and cello, doing standards and a lot of Dead tunes. It was a cool place...comfortable, with great aromas circulating about. Many people commented on the music. "Awesome" was how one person put it. I guess you don't get to hear an acoustic guitar and cello playing classic rock tunes every day.

Mit Romney - Private Eye

Love it! Great post.

Where is everybody? Mit Romney is running for president for crying out loud! He was also the governor of Massachusets. That's not TOO far from Vermont! And he's running as a Republican, so the issue of him being a Mormon is a big deal because it seems the Christian right are not fond of Mormons. He also has movie star looks...better than Ronald Reagan, so he has been getting a lot of media attention. But maybe not in Vermont. LOL! Maybe you guys were too busy shoveling snow the last few weeks. Heard you got a few feet!

But Anna Nicole has gotten more meda play than good ol' Mit. By the way, I saw a picture of him campaigning in front of a sign that said, "Mit Happens"! So we know he has a sense of humor. But I digress...

George Harrison did get suprisingly little media coverage. But I was in my twenties when John Lennon died, and I have to say, it was even bigger than Anna Nicole. it really was huge. For one thing he got shot...right on a New York City street. It was a shock, and it was sad. All you heard was Beatle music on almost every radio station for at least a week. There were big gatherings in Central Park. Lots of articles, shows, etc.

When George go so little attention it made me realize that John WAS the Beatles! Of course, that's not true. But he was the leader and the one who really got involved in the culture of the sixties. He was more dimensional than the others. He had also just come out with the best solo album of any of them. He would have certainly made some amazing music since then, but at least we had Anna Nicole for all these years. And we still have...Mit!

And who could forget Charley the Unicorn?

Long time no chat, Anna Nicole, T-Shirts and "Detective Romney"

Hey Aaron - sorry that I haven't written in a while - been busy with my job and my theater group. You raise soem good points as always on the Hezbollah-Nazi connection, Catholicsism, Judaism, and the late Mrs. Smith. But first of all, I do feel I should ask you this:

Von Cello Wrote:

"Now as for the Mormons...let's not bring Mit Romney into this!"

Mit Romney? Who is he? That's a cool name....he could be somekind of film-noir character.
"A quiet night in a city who knows how to keep the Sabbath holy. And in one soltary cathedral on fundamentalism street, one man still prays to God for answers to the age old question: "Why is mormonism so lucrative"? I don't talk much, I just pray and provide voice-overs. That man is me, Mit Romney, Private Catholic".

Where was I? Oh yeah, I don't belive I've had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Romney - who is he?

And about Anna Nicole Smith - I'm sorry she's dead, but shouldn't the families or friends of celebrities beable to grieve, and decide legal matters without media scritiny? Sure, someone rich and famous (or famous because she was rich) died, but people die everyday. I heard the other day that 1 child dies everyday from HIV...there is no way you could wake up tommorrow morning and think that a child with HIV will be sprared...we just don't have the technology, nor the cure yet to help HIV patients recover.
But my point is, people die, no matter how rich or newsworthy they are; the media has a really wierd obsesion with remembering the people who, as I paraphrase an idea you had Aaron, had a lot a lot of looks, but not a lot of talent; or a lot of money, but not a lot of heart. Talk about talent and heart, the late George Harrison had both and then some. When he died, Beatles fans definately took note. There were stories in the newspaper, and on VH1, of course, more than likely there was some coverage on the big three (CBS, NBC, ABC), but I would not be surprised if Anna Nicole's death is getting way more air-time then George's passing, or even John Lennon's demise several years ago recieved. Like you said, Aaron, the media and entertainment industry seems to not recognize and respect true talent when they see it or hear about it....how about the actual GOOD singers on American Idol; not the ones Simon Cowell thinks are good, but the ones who get booted off the show but end up a meager, but honest life for themselves songwriting? What about the innovative ones, I should add, who work tirelessly to bring new instruments to the level of accepted, rock/pop reportoire? They are the true American "Idols"....not that we should worship them above God, of course, but let us give praise to the working class hero, and the struggling artist.
I've heard enough about Anna Nicole and her bones, and her baby, and her many suitors, and burial plot in the Bahamas. As I said in an earlier posting, let us make t-shirts and stand outside FOX headquarters. These shirts will say "She's Dead Already...Get Over It"! Yeah, that's right, don't weep for Smith's family....they're doing alright for themselves. Let us instead, weep for the lower middle-class family who wonder where their next meal will come from and when, or how about weeping for New Orleans, and then actually acting on it and assist with the clean up down there! Man, we live in troubled times. That's my rant for today, I'm gonna go make myself feel better by listening to a bit of Celtic music, maybe I'll accompany it with some spoons! Good night and God Bless America.

Huh?

Did you read the article? She was not an actress, a singer, a model or anything that would traditionally make someone famous. She was just:
Anna Anna Anna Anna Anna Nicole!

What Can We Learn From Anna Nicole's DNA?

Wow! Her death dominated the news here like Lady Diana's! It was the most reported story on FOX, MSNBC and CNN for days. All the people involved in fighting over her body, her baby, and her money are now famous. Even the judge is now famous! Yet she is someone with no obvious talent. That is why I wrote the article about her life, and what we can learn about music from it. Let's see if it gets picked up on a lot of sites.

Life

The Circle Game is one of my favorite songs. The other song is one I wrote called We Go Forward. Both are about how we advance in life and are unable to go back to what we had. Joni Mitchell's song only speaks about this life. Mine aludes to the afterlife, or death if you prefer, "We go onward, never to return". As for the Sinatra lyric...it speaks for itself.

Circle Games

And the seasons, they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down.
We're captured on a carosel of time.
We can't return, we can only look behind from where we came,
And go round and round and round in the circle game.
- Joni Mitchel

When I look at children, I always see myself.
When they look at me now, they see someone else.
We go forward, never going back.
We go forward, never going back.
And we go onward, never to return.
- Aaron Minsky

Do be do be do. Be do be do be.
- Frank Sinatra

Steve, you missed a good night. Last night I went to the Bar Mitzvah of Stuie's son. At the party was Stu Troyetsky, Stu Fish, Howie Kaplan, Roni Koppels, Neil Korman, and several other friends from Canarsie.

Do you remember how weird it was on that first moment when we saw each other after so many years when I picked you up in Coney Island? Imagine that times ten! It is weird how we humans go around this merry go round and watch each other get older and more funny looking!
