LaughJohnLaugh Band Rocks a mix of Blue Celtic Pop

I was at an Irish Business and Arts networking Seminar last night and Black 47's Lead man and all round great guy Larry Kirwan said in music You have to have a plan ... man. 

And he is right - I gotta have a plan.

So my plan if I want to keep playing, recording writing and living music is one where I get to earn a living. So I have a band now that does just that.

I am well used to being the solo guy with a guitar so now added to that awesomeness (that's an americanism I picked up) is an Aedel like singer a drummer/percussionist  & a bass player plus an accordion instrumentalist giving an Irish flavor or banjo/mandolin player for a blue grassy Pogues feel.

Shows so far in NYC have included long sets at big events like Saint Patrick's Day show (3 sets) Bar 773 Brooklyn Half Way to St Pats Celebration (3 sets) Irish Haven Brooklyn Maguire's Pub, Woodside, Queens NYC (3 sets) Band set list is divided roughly into 3 types of material - Celtic Pop and Catchy original…

Yo Procrastinators

The War of Art: buy this book

Its part of the deal
where the artists wheels squeal
He don't want to repeal
for failure has it's appeal
So stay in mud he will pig
and dance a stationary jig
but he needs to get up and about
do a little huffing n shouts
to let people know about the show he propo
and rhyme everything he can til he understand
that procrastination can kill
stone dead any Artistic dreams
and its a fight to the death
against the forces of blehh

So I did get a FANBRIDGE mailing list going on and so sign up to it and I'll communicate some warm and cool ill sthuff John does:

A Steve Jobs letter found - the iMan continues to instruct from beyond- Give it away now.

Steve Jobs Startling New Apple Letter.

In a startling find from beyond the grave the founder of Apple, Steve Jobs has left a revealing and illustrative letter about his generosity and desires to share the benefits of Apple consciousness with all the world.

The typed note accompanying some lyrics was found in his personal effects and annotated with his unique personal handwriting.
"if I get a Billion from those MoFo Samsung fuckers then I'll give it away now too"  The phrase 'give it away' was underlined several times.

Sources close to Apple have not denied the existence of the letter and in an off the record comment from an insider in Cupertino (Raul Cerveza PR Department) said

"it (this sad-sack give-it-back story) was like some fucking article that could appear in that stupid rag 'The Onion'. And just cuz the guy in Microsoft does it, does n't mean we have to go do it too. What a joke -" "We are Apple, we are iPad, iPhone. iMe - we …
