Before we begin, here’s my latest youtube video (hunkasaurus.com or youtube.com).
#45. THE WEST: Music video of Pet Dog Guitar instrumental, “The West” featuring the artwork “Watchdog”. Short and sweet.
You can also see this or any of my 45 videos on myspace.com/musead too. And that’s what I want to talk about here. I am really enjoying myspace – the site to connect up with others.
And before I go any further I want to
INVITE ALL NEW FRIENDS TO MY MYSPACE PAGE . I WELCOME ALL OF YOU TO ADD YOURSELF TO MY NETWORK OF FRIENDS!
In recent weeks I’ve gone from 40 friends to over 170! I’ve searched out people that look interesting to me. Many are celebrities, some like Shakespeare, are no longer with us, but someone has taken their name and made a site dedicated to them. That’s why I have Renoir and Darwin for friends for example. But there are also musicians, filmmakers, and much much more. For example here are some of my new friends, most added in the last few weeks.
Art: You’ve heard of RENOIR, THE ANDY WARHOL MUSEM and perhaps HR GIGER and BASQUIAT, but how about new artist finds like SERGIO E (from Spain) or NORI (from Malaysia), or NACCARATO or ETHEREAL.
Writing: There’s SHAKESPEARE, EMILY DICKENSON, but also zinester stars like DAVIDA and FIRE (Llori Steinberg).
Film: There’s CHICAGO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL, BOLLYWOOD, WONDERWOMAN, TRON, and director BRAD ANDERSON.
Comedy: BILL HICKS, BILL MURRAY, and DANA CARVEY.
Fashion: There’s NYLON magazine, and designer BEN SHERMAN.
Local favorites: INWOOD THEATER, BAR OF SOAP, A HISTORY OF DALLAS MUSIC, GRANADA THEATER, REVEREND HORTON HEAT, ERYKAH BADU and SALIM NOURALLAH.
Politics: STOP THE WAR, PROJECT PEACE, and SGT. MAXWELL’S PEACE CHORUS.
Music: (and here’s the bulk of the new friends) Classic artists like:
BEATLES, FRANK SINATRA, DEAN MARTIN, BOB DYLAN, FRANK ZAPPA, SUN RECORDS (and lots of rockabilly), ELVIS PRESLEY AND THE BLUE MOON BOYS, SCOTTY MOORE, ROY ORBISON, PHIL AND DON, EDDIE COCHRAN, RICK NELSON, BRIAN SETZER, NEIL YOUNG, and then there are my favorite women singers such as: INGRID MICHEALSON, FEIST, BJORK, AVIRL LAVIGNE, CYNDI LAUPER, and other women artists that may be new to you; KERLI, LAUREN FIELD (London), TATYANA SHERMAN (Kiev). Plus lots of new musical finds from here and across the globe such as: SPONGETONES, TRONS, GNARLS BARKLEY, DARK CAPTAIN LIGHT CAPTAIN, and THE ROGUE ELEMENT.
Icons: I also LOVE to add the myfriends with fascinating animated art icons. For those you have to just look and see their creative work.
Come take a look, and if so inclined join my art revolutionary network of friends.
