Be Still…

March 13, 2009

Internet connection

An online presence…

mine isn’t THAT big but it takes up a lot of my time.

Twittering.

Blogging.

Facebooking.

All of it to update the world of the events of my life.

A few weeks ago I gave up Facebook for lent.

Tonight, I realized how much of my free time is dedicated to the internet. So, I’m done for a while. At least until Lent is over with.

If you need to contact me, email works fine (kdm83@aol.com)

It’s time to be still…


Soul Pancake is Here!

March 10, 2009

soulpancakelogo

What is SoulPancake? Well, it’s more of a mission than a Web site…

We want to make discussions about Spirituality, Creativity, and Philosophy cool again. Were they ever cool? I have no idea. But it seems like a good idea. We want to engage the user to “Chew on Life’s Big Questions”™. (I was kidding about the ™ symbol; you can use that phrase however you want. Even to sell frozen taquitos.) Where do you go on the Interwebs if you want an irreverent, fun, and profound take on God and Art and the Soul and Faith and Beauty? Fox.com? Maybe. But maybe also here at SoulPancake.com.

We provide some rockin’ content (interviews, blogs, challenges, contests, features, and more), but it’s really all about having YOU—the SoulPancake community—bring this site to life. Say what’s on your mind. Be real. Talk about WHY WE’RE HERE. And if I say something that offends you, let me have it.

Just remember: Life is a rich, weird, difficult experience. So join us as we go on the spiritual and artistic journey that is SoulPancake.*

Interested?

Music Monday — Week 4

March 9, 2009

This week…

The Cast of Rent

Now this isn’t really a recording artist

and maybe it is becasue I got tickets to see the show in July with Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp starring.


Adam Pascal


Anthony Rapp and the Cast [excuse the bare bottom and other debauchery little kids]

Rent is a rock opera, with music and lyrics by Jonathan Larson based on Giacomo Puccini’s opera La Bohème. It tells the story of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York’s Lower East Side in the thriving days of Bohemian Alphabet City, under the shadow of AIDS.*

What are you into this week?

A Fine Fenzy

“A Fine Frenzy is a blend of sounds and influences. Where there’s Ella, Aretha and Louis, there’s also Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Aqualung and Keane” HARP Magazine

From her website:
After teaching herself to play piano, Alison increasingly invested her internal narratives into song form. She found solace in the melodic melancholia of new global British bands Aqualung, Radiohead, Coldplay and Keane, etc… She was also moved by the diatonic minimalism of Philip Glass and the transportive allure of Icelandic music (Bjork, Sigur Ros.) Inspired, Alison developed the sound of A Fine Frenzy – hypnotic piano arrangements under classic American melody fused into irresistible, atmospheric songs with the power to reach around the world.
