Marlon Brando interview

When I was a kid movies were my first exposure to photography and music. If you have ever looked at a picture I took, or heard a song I wrote, or listened to me play drums you heard or saw some fragment of artists like Pink Floyd, Allan Holdsworth, Miles Davis, or Marlon Brando in there. I first saw Marlon Brando in the Movie Apocalypse Now at the Cinedome Theater in Orange California with Chuck Lantz​ back in 1979 (or so). I became a fan of his acting and began to search out his movies. This is a long but interesting interview probably happened sometime after he won the academy award for The Godfather. It’s amazing that at one time (on television) two people could have a conversation like this (and as long as this).

Linda Suzanne Sings

Linda Suzanne set out to create a concert event that would raise money for rescue animals. During the final moments of production the Las Vegas Mass Shooting occurred. Since Linda and her husband (John Wackerman) are members of the Las Vegas entertainment community Linda decided to donate and equal portion of the the money raised for victims of the mass shooting.

Regarding too much news

“The truth is, in an age of unfettered access to the worst of humanity, we have to act as our own gatekeepers if we want to stay sane.”

At the front desk of the Keio Plaza in Japan with Tony Williams, Bunny Brunel and John Wackerman

When I was young, I used to follow all these drummers and then after some time I realized they were (in some part) emulating this dude. I was lucky enough to meet Tony (thanks to the dude on bass in this video, Bunny Brunel​) at the Keio Plaza in Japan. Tony was of course kind and cordial when I met him. We didn’t say too much to each other. But he had a depth to his presence that I have not sensed in many people.

Ableton Tips

I looked at most of the Ableton “One Ting” clips and this was one of the only that resonated with me.

My iPhone won’t let me delete my pictures and videos with my Preview or Image Capture App

When my iPhone runs out of memory or storage I usually back up my pictures and movies with the Preview or Image Capture apps that are built in my OS on my MacBook Pro. Lately I noticed that the delete button is greyed out (or is it grayed out).

The problem is iCloud. When your phone begins to notice you are running out of storage space it will ask you if you want to turn on iCloud to free up some space. Once you turn on iCloud you are then unable to delete files off your iPhone with your Preview or Image Capture apps.

So the solution is.

1.  Back up your picture and videos from your iPhone.

2. Turn off iCloud for pictures and movies

3. On your iPhone click the home button then click, settings, yourname, and icloud. The turn off iCloud Photo Library. You will get a message about removing photos and movies off the phone (which is why you backed up before doing this step.

3. Use Preview or Image Capture to delete the pictures and movies you do not need. If not doesn’t work you will need to unplug your iPhone from your matchbook and plug it back in.

The Kate Bush Story

I first heard of Kate Bush by my friend Louis Oliart’s girlfriend Cathy. I named my daughter after Kate Bush. I have viewed every interview, owned every recording and yet she still remains a mystery to me.  For me she is one of this artists who stands apart from most.
