Here Come The Rain

§ October 29th, 2010 § Filed under book content, chapter, moving pictures, performance § No Comments

Since spending time in Venice, California, I’ve had the good fortune to meet some interesting people. One such person is Venice boardwalk artist Arthure Moore.  Arthure has had it, lost it, gotten it back, let it go all over again.  The interesting thing about Arthure is that in many ways he is as happy or happier than many other people I know who would appear to “have” more.

Arthure and I have coffee (ok, I have coffee, and he has beer) several mornings per week when I’m in the ‘hood. He’s bright, talented, and…funny. We could all learn a few things from him, and he’s a great add to the world of hownot2suck.

There are two parts to this film, which premiered at the hownot2suck @ businessnbeing ebook launch in Toronto, on September 13, 2010.  And, I’m happy to report that the films floored the audience.

ps the chapter Here Comes The Rain is at the foot of this post.

Beware Of Your Dreams

§ October 28th, 2010 § Filed under #hownot2suck, book content, chapter, moving pictures, performance § No Comments

Now more than ever, we need to consider our dreams.  Are we willing to take the required action to achieve our goals?

The world of composing music for film and tv is a long one before success arrives in any tangible manner.  My managing of composer Robert Carli has been a high point in my career.  But, it took tenacity on both our parts to  find success.  It did not come overnight.  Even now, success is assured only by continuing to push a rock up a hill.

Here’s a look at some of Robert’s talents, as part of an improvisational performance that took place during the hownot2suck ebook release party of Sept 13, 2010  in Toronto.  Note that Robert also knows how to surround himself with talented people!

and here is the original presentation including my introduction to Robert Carli.

And here is the chapter from hownot2suck
