Ryan Adams with Mandy Moore -" Oh My Sweet Carolina" (iPhone4 video)

I decided to profile this song/video even though i briefly mentioned it in an earlier post...If you haven't seen this iPhone video I shot of Ryan Adams and his band rehearsing for 826LA's benefit for Judd Apatow's (and Dave Eggers) book, "I Found This Funny"...then you should.

It's a sincere, beautiful song that Ryan Adam's (with his wife Mandy Moore singing the chorus) voice really gets to me. Lyrically playful with depth, it's a song that I find myself singing out loud, much to the chagrin of those around me. I actually like this version better than the album...but that's really two different stories (studio versions and live).

David Bowie 1983 Dallas Rehearsals.

Another collection of songs I'd like to share with y'all is set in 1983 when Bowie was getting ready for his "Let's Dance" tour
or whatever it was fucking called.

Bowie had heard and convinced Stevie Ray Vaughan, then generally an unknown guitarist, to play on his album and tour with him but Vaughan
opted out of the tour (SRV decided to focus on his band Double Trouble and record an album). He did however play on the rehearsals which are these ones here.

They are soundboard recordings but they are at 128k, so not the best (and not the worst) audio resolution.

Anyway, for any and all Bowie fans they are interesting to hear Bowie at probably his high point (popularity wise...not creatively in my opinion) of his career.

The set LIST: (by the way, this is not the full set with it.)
1. Star
2. Heroes
3. What in the World
4. Look Back in Anger
5. Joe the Lion
6. Wild is the Wind
7. Golden Years
8. Fashion
9. Let's Dance
10. Red Sails
11. Sorrow
12. Cat People
13. China Girl
14. Rebel Rebel
15. I Can't Explain
16. White Light/White Heat

California College of Arts (CCA) has a film of mine up...

On their media site...
For some reason my school (CCA) has kept a music video i did then (1999 or 2000??) online...i haven't seen this in 10 years...if you have time and feel like spacing out to a sound/image dream landscape...then click on this 4:13ExperimentalFilm.

Feels weird watching something I created but don't remember doing (well...i remember a few moments but it's hazy).
