        Promotional video for Green Earrings - The Steely Dan Experience. Shot live, no overdubs or pre-recorded tracks. For booking info www.greenearringsband.com The ten members of Green Earrings bring a myriad of experiences and influences together in a quest to accurately replicate the sounds of Steely Dan. The result is "the closest thing to being there" you're likely to encounter unless you are sitting in the audience at a Steely Dan show. With four part harmony vocals, smokin' hot horns, and a rhythm section comprised of regional pros, this powerhouse band covers the Steely Dan catalog from Can't Buy A Thrill to Aja and beyond. You'll hear both studio versions as well as tasteful updates from Steely Dan tours over the past decade. If you love Steely Dan, this is a “do not miss” show!

          On July 3rd, Erica and I rode our bicycles across town for the 1st big testing of the Cycle Powered Cinema project :) Mark Maynard, along with a team of other local people behind the project, organized the dry-run screening of Night of the Hunter (which was the 1st film Mark thought of playing quite some time ago when first mentioning the idea on his site). A group of about 40 people sat along the Huron River, just behind the new http://VGkids.com building, on blankets and snacked on popcorn and wore glow sticks. There were some minor issues with the wiring, but the CPC team learned a lot from it, and I hope they host another event soon. It was definitely a night I won't forget - it was a great experience.

                    In 2008, I really started watching daytime television...the election race was also going on and it was a really exciting time in our nations political history...that reads as strange but it's true. Well...all of this hype, information, and virtual cultural influence was manifesting itself in my brain, and I eventually had to purge it. The result is this psycho-satyrical-pop death trip. In my mind, I've created a perverse combo-version of "2001: A Space Odyssey", the "Wizard of Oz", and the story of the immaculate conception vs Rosemary's Baby. The whole thing was produced in a very John Waters-esque way. In 2009, "Muerta..." was performed as a multimedia puppet show at the Dreamland Theater in Ypsilanti, MI. A couple years later, we filled in the gaps to show it as it's own full feature video. Special thanks to Naia Venturi for making an amazing Sarah Palin puppet to add to her masterful collection and all of her acceptance and unconditional support of weird artists. Eternal thanks to the talented friends who helped on this chaotic project. (for the happy ending (?)....watch until the credits end....for the director cut...keep watching. (*) -dbqp

Many people have been asking, "did she really go across the street and get a tattoo?". The answer is, "yes, yes she did".
