Here Comes Christmas...

...by Green Sparkle Frog (yes, my band).

So, my band and our record, are on the first round, 56th Grammy Ballot...

...if there are any NARAS voting members here at DU, I appeal to you to have a listen and consider us when you vote.

And if you're not a NARAS member, the appeal is the same, except, you can't vote.

But, please have a listen, and let me know what you think about our record.

Artist: Green Sparkle Frog

Album: Die Happy & Other Songs About Life

Categories:

Part 1: Album of the Year - entry #0469; Best New Artist - entry #235

Part 2, Field 4 Rock: Best Rock Album - entry #98.

Hear the record at Spotify.com, search for Green Sparkle Frog (yes, you have to sign up and download their application, but it may be worth it - you can set up a free account and listen to anything available there besides GSF).

-or stream at our web site - GreenSparkleFrog.com, click on the "AUDIO" link, no sign up or anything needed.

Thanks for your consideration.

"La Luz de Germs" at the Vincent Price Art Museum...



I have been working with GERMS on a limited edition version of a floor lamp (only 4 in Edition One, with 1 artist's proof version, which is a variant of the final v1 edition), inspired by GERMS' paintings, which very often feature a floating, tentacled, luchador-inspired figure, which is the model for the lamp.

The four versions of the lamp will be on exhibit at the Vincent Price Art Museum, along with some new paintings by GERMS, as well as his site-specific work.

2011 prototype:



The 2013 versions feature hand-carved teak wood tentacles:





We are still waiting for the delivery of the hand-carved wood from Thailand, and then we have less than 3 weeks to complete the assembly and installation.

I'm a little bit nervous, as we come down to the wire, but have no doubt it will be wonderful.

So I've been running ads on over 3000 web sites, incl. DU...

...promoting a song from my band's CD. The promo campaign has run for a month now.

DU Star Members will, of course, not see these ads, but I'm wondering if anybody else out there (non-Star freeloaders like me) has seen them, besides me?

It's for Green Sparkle Frog, "She's That Kind of Girl" - the ads link to a free download of the song, via ReverbNation.com.

Any feedback from anyone would be appreciated, thanks.

Timothy Leary NEUROCOMICS...

...here's a link to a blog review, apparently published today, of a comic book I worked on back in the 70s with Pete Von Sholly and George DiCaprio (yeah, Leo's dad).

My son found the blog review via an automatic update from a "gadget" on his iGoogle page, and emailed me to tell me about it, which strikes me as highly synchronistically amazing, not to mention, quite Leary-like and all.

I painted the cover, co-designed/inked the inside panel borders, and did the lettering.

I was just thinkin' - "what a great movie this would make!" - just Imagine the 3D Special Effects!!

There is a link, at the link above, to the entire comic, should anyone want to peruse it in detail.

So I installed the Firefox update a few days ago...

...and ever since, I've been getting periodic pop-up windows trying to get me to do a multitude of surveys.

Which is extremely annoying.

Anybody else experience this, or have a fix to stop it from happening?

Oh yeah, also, I now have this thing where certain words on web pages are hyperlinked to advertisements or something...which I also don't appreciate.

If anybody knows how to get rid of these, I'd appreciate learning how.

Thanks in advance.
