Shoo Bop, My salute to background singers!

May 15, 2018

Time for another video from my string of new songs.

These are demos, not studio recordings! Look for the lyrics, and song!

This one is called ‘SHOO BOP”, my salute to all background singers! Yeah Yeah Yeah!

Cello, new song demo and video

May 4, 2018

Dear Reader,

My new music video for my song “Cello, A Love Story”,
is now posted on my youtube channel. There is some art to fit too.

This is a rough demo, not a studio recording like my 9 cds.

To fit the words, I played my guitar like a cello – all low notes! See what you think.

Headphones are best. PS, recorded live, no auto tuning here!

CELLO
(c) Tom Hendricks 2018

1.

I was caught off guard, reading some books one day
When I heard next door, someone began to play.
Cello practice there. She played some scales to start.
Then after a pause, she played a piece by Bach.

Chorus

First she played it sweet like a Siren sings
Then she played it rough like a stormy sea
Passion in her bow as her cello rang.
Passion in my heart, not too far away.

(guitar lead, then repeat chorus )

2.
Music shows the soul. Its more than skill or rote.
When she strums the strings, feelings in every note.
(I) listen when I can, don’t want to miss her play.
(I) really have to find some way to meet some day.

Chorus (repeat).

Poems of Hope and Despair

April 27, 2018

You may have reached the gate,
but you’re still on the locked side.

a hole in my pocket
I found a penny
it rolled away …

Poor sick child,
now a leaf
in the wind.

Dreams
are like bubbles and
pop
when we awake!

Maybe things
will work out if …
But in truth
I really doubt it.

Are we not
porcelain plates
in free fall …

Every day
I ache and ache
every day
a darker path.

There’s a desert
in her heart.

Something like
the beating of wings
within all life.

What a shock
to then find out
all the zen was
in the pencil!

Most of the time
my head is a rock /steel
but now and then
there’s a piece of flint … (for WIS)

no matter where
in Kafka you read
the oppression begins.

She dips her wishes
into boiling water,
her favorite tea!

Reasons Musea is Against Ads

April 3, 2018

Reasons I’m against ads?

Start with these 4.

1. Ads directed toward children.

2. Ads that show the company as perfect, while the customer is portrayed as a fool.

3. Corporate gathering of personal data to better target ads.

4 Advertisers often change, or censor content in the programs they sponsor.

There is a better way to support artists and to get content out of the hands of corporations and back into the hands of the content makers .

Set up an online pay for play service where clicking on a webpage pays a penny or so to access the work of the artist, musician, writer, filmmaker, architect, dancer, photographer, journalist, scientist etc.

This simple step eliminates the entire layer of corporate middlemen, allows any artist of any kind to get compensation, and allows independent media to be free of ads and pressure from sponsors.
