One of the things I do on the side as much as possible is help out my friends; there is a soon-to-be released 10-song live DVD released for Happy Body Slow Brain, cure people I like very much, that I put together just to help them get the word out. Also on the books for this year, I am hoping to contribute either a still photo series or an experimental video to help The Family Crest promote the funding for their next album and, while they don’t know it yet, I’m going to convince them to play live in my house where I can produce another live video series.
Needless to say, when I met the painter / sculptor / print-maker, Jonathan Shimony (the man featured in the Lithographic Printing video in my previous post), and got to know him throughout my months in Paris, I couldn’t help but put together a little something that he can use to tell the world who he is and what he is about:
So, that’s that.
I leave for Normandie on August 14th with Fleur Offwood (click me) to catch the first couple nights of her small acoustic tour. On the 16th, it’s a train back to Paris and then a flight the next day back to Los Angeles… the end of a long, long trip…
…until the next week when I head to New York for a few days to be shown around by a very nice man named Matt.
