turn on the YouTube! Rush Hour Soul is on and they're playing "A Talent For Loving!" Yes, our music video is up and running. Be sure to go watch it. Please leave comments and ratings for the video on YouTube. We need a huge push to get over and you can help. Be sure to tell 10 friends to tell 10 friends to watch "A Talent For Loving." And enjoy. We know a lot of you have been waiting a long time to see the video. Especially our supporters in Great Britain. We miss you, we truly do. So go watch the video, then come back and finish reading my blog. I can wait...
We had a small gathering of friends and fans this evening and screened "A Talent For Loving" in surround sound (5.1 rocking the hizzy). Of course, on YouTube quality is sacrificed for convenience, but you'll get the gist of the video, no doubt. Everyone in attendance had a good time and they clamored to watch the short twice more. Hope the neighbors didn't mind. Cheers to everyone who made it over.
There are many people to thank for helping us through the process of creating and releasing this video. First, we have to thank director William Archer for crafting such a wonderful video and for bringing on a first-rate crew. Foremost amongst the crew, we must thank our taller-than-us director of photography, Dennis Madden. Genius. Thanks, as well, to Nina Angeleri of Home Films for producing the video. The whole group of guys and gals working on the set at the Bedford were wonderful and patient with us. Kudos. A job well done.
Next, we need to give props to our co-star, Sarah Monrose. She looks stunning in the video and Sarah added so much glamour to the whole endeavor. Also on set of course, were our photographer Patty Tokahuta and make-up artiste Molly Gordon. Ladies, you are the alpha and omega for Rush Hour Soul. Grazie!
A list of thank you's wouldn't be complete without mentioning our Golden Circle again. These friends and family members really assisted us with paying for the video (it sho' wasn't free) and donated a minimum of $200 to us. So, humbly, we thank:
The Kelseys (especially tour sponsors KS1 Security)
The Rolstons (of Free Heart Farm)
Many of you also made smaller donations to our tour fund. We hope you all received your postcards from the road. Thank you, as well. We are nothing without our Soul Mates.
I've made a few changes to RushHourSoul.com that should be eye-pleasing. That's the idea anyway. Well, it's been a very long business day here in Rush Hour Soul-land. Time for me to retire for the night. But for those of you just waking up on the other side of the world, you're in for a pleasant surprise. You might even forgo the coffee; just get your jolt of Rush Hour Soul! Holler!!
Love, Power, Peace
