Another week of fun and games here!

Thanksgiving was lovely, filled with friends and family, laughter and fun.  

We enjoyed some downtime with the kiddos and went to see the annual Santa Monica Westside Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker.  

Since it wasn’t video game related, we were hard pressed to elicit any enthusiasm from the boys…. sigh.  

I will keep trying to feed in some culture tho….  Brian and I and our mom loved it!  LOL


Plus a fun pic of the boys!  Autumn in LA! LOL


On Sunday, I jumped back into album production, starting with a super cool session with percussionist Christo Pellani.
Such a joy to work with Christo!
Then, I had one day at the mixing board with Vito before we launched into prep for shooting my first ever music video!!
Last Wednesday and Thursday, I went WAY outside my comfort zone with Chris Cairn directing and filming LOMS, the video!
Thank you Chris, Vito, Emiko, Joni, and Laura for making it all go off so incredibly smooth, and making me feel so at ease.
For the first time ever, I didn’t freeze in front of the camera!  LOL
In fact, I truly enjoyed the experience and really can’t wait to see the director’s cut ?
Chris’ deep knowledge of lighting and framing, and his creative style made even the raw footage look amazing.
Vito was an attentive executive producer, adding lots of creative ideas to the production.
Here’s a raw shot, compliments of Vito’s excellent photo journalism ?


Now…. we wait for the call from Chris for a viewing.  

In exactly a week, LOMS will drop into iTunes as a single for purchase, plus a super high quality music video as a calling card!

never set out to do all this…. it has just rolled in like a beautiful wave, inviting me in….. so, hey, why not?  hehehe

In the midst of all this, I received in the mail my first ever invitation to The Grammys.  

Having been invited to add vocals to two CD’s that are up for nominations, I guess I qualified as a member…. crazy!
