I have some good news and some bad news...
The bad news (well, sort of bad, sort of good): I'm all sold out of CDs of MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS: the Musical. (Well, I did keep one, to frame and put up on my office wall-so now I have to find a "CD frame"-which I Googled and it seems they are out there-I mean they exist, not that they are "out there" in a weird, spacey way-well, you know what I mean!)
Anyway, the good news: Digital downloads are now available on CD Baby (and in a little while, will be on iTunes, Amazon, etc., and even on internet radio-Jango)! The good thing about CD Baby is that it includes album notes, so you can read the whole story of the play-turned-musical. (Some of you may recall that MORE PRECIOUS THAN DIAMONDS is my 10-minute play, which was published by Smith & Kraus in THE BEST 10-MINUTE PLAYS 2009 before I adapted it into a short musical).
Kudos to my brilliant designer, Ewa, who made the new album cover (CD Baby requires a square cover, so my round CD artwork just didn't cut it). Isn't it pretty?
Please visit CD Baby and experience the "fresh and pretty" songs for yourself! (Quote from Don Grigware of broadwayworld.com). And if you enjoy it, please tell your friends (and wax eloquent with a review of your own!)
Welcome to my blog! This is a first for me, and I feel a little like a kid on the first day of kindergarten. I'm trying to remember all I was told ("Raise your hand, don't just talk out of turn") as well as being awed by the surroundings (live rabbits! live other kids!)
On the other hand, this is the no-rules worldwide web, a virtual Wild West of uncharted territory where one can get lost in the desert of...I don't know, I just tossed my GPS. But it's all beautiful and shiny and new (blogging, I mean) so I'll try to inspire you or tickle your funny bone or throw out some crazy/interesting factoid...anything but bore you or insult you. And, please, let's keep this virtual playground clean from any "crud", if ya know what I mean :)
Oh, and here's my first invitation to y'all: please visit my Dad's new website, www.SamuelLloydHutchinson.com. He is a cartoonist and I'm so proud of him! He's the creator of Parky the Kangaroo and also has a new cartoon book available, BINGO BANDWAGON, 230 ORIGINAL CARTOONS.
Enjoy, and I'll catch you later!
