Today In my travels I stopped at the Longboard grill for a Duke and Pictures
Recently I saw this video about a DJ called DJ tiestro or something like that.College kids flock by the thousands to go see his shows.He has fog lights pyro technics etc.Folks seems to love him.He plays hip hop and techno and girls go nuts for him and thinks hes a rock star.I suppose Wolfman Jack Alan Freed ,and Cousin Brucie got caught up in the moment but WE DJs must remember not to let the fame get to our heads.Its about the music!Remember that.Sure its great to hear that folks love you and that your the greatest but Remember to stay focused on the ultimate mission:Good Music! Sadly many Radio stations have fallen because they abandoned their audience and listened to corporate sponsers.WCBS FM tried another direction years ago and eventually went back to their original format because the listeners spoke up.NEVER forget your listening audience.reach out to them.Love them.Respect them! Howard Stern was once a fun DJ on WNBC and was funny as heck.Fame got to his head and he is hardly ever heard from now.WNBC stayed from their listening audience and went to a sports channel as did WABC. When your get heady and forget your original mission things go bad. TV has its victems too.MTV and VH1 used to play great videos but then a virus called reality TV took over ..and is still there!Its said the music industry is suffering.Gosh why is this? MP3s are replacing CDs?Oh perhaps.Vinyl is on the comeback because folks like to collect music.not files.We want to read who wrote what song and how it came about.How can we Jumpstart the music industry?Anyone?Music?Anyone?

So I'm thinking of cool things to take pictures of when the weather is nicer.I've noticed some funky mailboxes.Around our area.I also look forward to seeing cool Gardens,antique cars shows and festivals.Id also like to get some pictures of stained glass like in a church.Of yes and cool steeples. Id like to also more more video tours of local shops.Thus far no one has objected however to be on the safe side I always ask. OK time to turn to music.I have 2 new CDs from the library.I have 1 or 2 more in transit.That will inspire me to make a new mix.Since I got my camera my mix making has been neglected well maybe not neglected but I having been making many mixes lately. my Creative engine needs to get started again. Ideas,and comments are welcome. I'm so looking forward to spring! Trish

This weekend was a bummer weather wise.Rainy and cloudy No Opportunities for outside picture taking or videos.I hope the weather will be nice this week.Im not much into sports but happy the Giants won! Oh yes i do have good news!The BP is down so0 I don't have to go back to my regular dr for 3 months but I do have to get bloddwork done,the ears checked out,an eye exam and a mammogram.Ooph does it ever end?
OK I say I don't like talking politics but I gotta get this out.If it came down to a Barack Versus Gingrich vote I'd vote for Barack!He seems nicer,he's not afraid to cut loose in this speeches.You can tell by the way he looks at Michelle and his kids hes a happy loving father and husband. I saw the debate with Gingrich and he went nuts when the other guy brought up with past marriage issues.What does he think once he got nominated it would all go away?OK I'm willing to forgive his past but the American people DO NOT need another Monicagate.We don't want our president running around having sex with his interns and then denying the whole thing and then admitting it days before he leaves office. We need someone who is straight up and honest with us.A man who's not afraid of answering tough questions or face tough issues. Some folks thing Obama took the credit for the Killing of Bin Laden but he Clearly stated the our Navy Seals were the heroes and he gave the order for them to carry out the mission. Gingrich seems to get to angry about his personal life and issues he doesn't agree with.We don't need a hot tempered president.We need someone who is calm under pressure and can take the heat. Go Obama!
