All in the telling

The latest technologies, including cloud, social, anything mobile, Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have and will continue to transform business, especially the customer experience, which still revolves around the story. Storytelling is still the centerpiece. Nothing new there. Storytelling has been the centerpiece since before anyone could even write….

Tin Foil

Andrew Bird does Tin Foil even better than the Handsome Family: Late New Years Eve paper hat on your head It was hard to believe that you’d ever be dead And that dream that you’re falling you’ve had since you’re five Is a bird on your shoulder that whispers goodbye What is moving will be…

Improvised Deconstruction

A few clicks is all it takes The kooks you don’t love me From the bottom of my heart from the wasteland you’ve got everything going to plan man De-de-duh-duh-duh-duh-de-de-duh-duh

Pigs on the Wing

Part 1 If you didn’t care what happened to me, And I didn’t care for you, We would zig zag our way through the boredom and pain Occasionally glancing up through the rain. Wondering which of the buggars to blame And watching for pigs on the wing. Part 2 You know that I care what…

Swim Until You Can’t See Land

We salute at the threshold of the North Sea in my mind And a nod to the boredom that drove me here to face the tide and swim (Whoaaaa) I swim (Whoaaa) oh swim (Whoaaa) Dip the toe in the ocean. Oh how it hardens and it numbs. And the rest of me is a…

Charlie Parr

I had the distinct pleasure of spending this morning down by the Mississippi River with Charlie Parr, shooting a video for City of Music with Dan Huiting, Chris Cloud, Dave Hannigan and the rest of the MPLS.tv crew. He’s such a good spirit and talented musician. Amidst such a perfect backdrop for his sound, the…

Crazy

A tremendous cover by LaMontagne‘s of the Gnarls Barkley song. How did I ever miss this from 2008? I remember when I remember I remember when I lost my mind There was something so pleasant about that place Even your emotions had an echo In so much space And when you’re out there Without care…

Beg Steal or Borrow

There’s no video in that there below thingy but I like it just fine with only the new single that plays from Ray LaMontagne’s forthcoming self-produced album, God Willin’ & The Creek Don’t Rise, being released, well, like it says, August 17: So your home town’s bringing you down Are you drowning in the small…
