The Crabbo and Jabbo Show- LIVE April 17, 2008

It has been so long since I’ve posted to this blog…the sidebar widgets are sadly out of date, and my life has moved on in ways I would never have imagined since “Queston of the Week” first gave me wings.

I’ve thought about leaving this blog behind…and I might just do that… or perhaps I will bend it to more powerfully reflect where I am now in my life…

I have a project in development that is the light of my creative heart, but I also have a new project with my husband, that focus on many of the things this blog focuses on…. namely… how to create the life of our dreams and to tell the world that who we are is perfect.

Its been 8 months since “35” premiered. The first web drama to stream live on the web, “35” was a labor of will, of love, of pain, of tenacity and in retrospect… of celebration. In the past two years the web 2.0 community has unleashed a torrent of tools and sites that now make it possible for artists of all sorts to Green Light their own creative projects. To produce work on a scale which only months ago would have been deemed impossible, and to reach a global audience with our music, our sculpture, our crafts, our videos. We no longer have to wait for casting directors, for investors, for galleries or film festivals to deem us worthy… we can stand behind our own work, tell the world that we are passionate about what we do, we believe in ourselves and that is more than enough!

“35” was designed to be a presented in two seasons, and we hope to bring you season 2 ASAP. We also have another webisode in development… but in the mean time…

The Jabbo and Crabbo Show- Live and Interactive The artists (and otherwise cool person’s) guide to creativity and technology on the web.

It is Guiesseppe and my hope to build a community of artists who support one another in living the lives we dreamed of and bringing our work to the Internet. We will offer everything we have learned this past year and will offer up tips each week that will make it easier for every artist to publish their work, to collaborate with other creatives, to market their art and (hopefully) live a more fulfilling life.

We hope you will join us on Mondays at 9:15 at . If you would like to receive an email reminder right before we go live each monday, contact us and we would be more more more than happy to oblige!

We also want this show to by YOUR show… so let us know what you want to learn about, and what topics you want to discuss. Join the Community!

Live TV! Overcoming My biggest Fear! June 16, 2007

Well not the live part… that feels like second nature…

In a post some weeks ago I wrote about the hardest thing I’ve had to overcome and that thing of course was my fear… lotsa varieties that manifest themselves in oh… quitting, failure, overeating, procrastinating… you know… but they all boil down to one thing… fear that who I am is not enough.

Well.. here I go… tellin the world that I who I am is enough.. that I am passionate and powerful and I believe in me….

(I know…that sounds so dopey and self-helpey… but its true..if you have a better way to say it please submit!!!! I would be ever grateful!

A fantastic DP just signed on…we will be shooting virals in a few weeks…..Everything is falling into place…. Here I go!!!

indie musicians of the week.. Halou May 25, 2007

Haunting… melodic… electronic…moving

We chose Stonefruit from Halou’snew album “Wholeness and Separation” for this week’s single of the week… but we could just as easily have chosen the irresistlbe “Everything is OK” or the portishead reminiscent “Honeythief”… the vocals are magnetic, the music unforgetable…

After 10 years of producing, both for themselves and other artists… the grass roots power of the internet is finally bringing Halou the attention they deserve…Check out Halou’s new album, Wholeness and Separation….
