Videos

March 9, 2019

Videos? Maybe it’s time to give them a rest and get back to the audio, the music!

When you have to spend thousands to make a video, that means 99% of musicians can’t have careers. It’s a way to keep the music corporate, generic, and bland. TeXas Video Showdown, the worst video ever made, on purpose; protests all this and the fact that only 3 men control the music industry (CEO’s from Warners, Sony, Universal) When was the last time you heard a musician protest anything in the music business?

What if you are a great musician, but you don’t want to spend 100 thousand on a video?
What if you are a great musician but don’t like teen pop that always sounds the same?
What if you are a great musician but you don’t support the 3 CEO’s that control the music business?

My 1,900th Song – Youtube

April 8, 2018

March 19th, I wrote my 1,900th song titled “I Was There”

This turned out to be a very short, crisp, almost baroque, guitar instrumental. Simple as can be and less than one minute long.

There are two short different passages, the first then the middle and a repeat of the first

Take a listen on this short Youtube video.

(NOTE: it’s easier to record it first, then film it. Can’t do both and get a good version!)

This Great Romantic Scene …

August 2, 2017

This very short youtube video, is from a South Korean TV drama called She Was Pretty, or Just Not Pretty. This excerpt is from episode 13, and I think it is one of the most romantic scenes I’ve seen in film or TV.

I don’t want to give any analysis before you watch. But here is a little set up for most who don’t know the TV series.

The couple are starting to fall in love. He is in the hospital because of exhaustion. She is hiding in the closet to avoid their female boss who came to visit him. The night before, they had their first real kiss.

OK watch and see what you think.

Now that you have seen it, I want to comment on it.

First of all wasn’t that fun? This was a scene that was not important to the plot at all. it was in the first half of the episode. So why did they add this sparkling piece? All those involved must have spent some time on this minute and a half! Watch again and note the writing – how it’s so fresh and unexpected. Then note that the actress went through about 5 or 6 mood changes in that 90 seconds!

Pretty great stuff! Now for more fun go back to the video and read some of the comments.

Details: The female actress is Hwang Jung-Eum, the actor Park Seo-
Joon. The writer of the series is Jo Sung-Hee, and the Director is Jun Dae-Yoon. Well done each one of you!
