WHERE DO I COME IN?
If you're not familiar with her illustrations, wait until you see what the great Maria Eugenia has been up to in Brasil & abroad (her website will clue you in). She has a magic touch with all sorts of art (and one of her illustrations within this video was nominated for the "American Illustrators Award 2013"). Watch it a second time and just stop the frame anywhere and check out the detail/color/talent.

HALFWAY HONEST LIVING
Time to bring Maria Eugenia back for an encore.
"Halfway Honest Living"
(from the CD "Rosler's Recording Booth")
Video by Maria Eugenia
Written by Don Rosler
Performed by Jeremy Sisto & the Valentines
Everett ("aka" Popadelic) Bradley from the "Holidelic" album! This is soon after Papadelic landed on earth, AND by coincidence not long before Everett was continually abducted by the E-Street band (oh and Hall & Oates, Brooklyn Rundfunk, the Broadway show "After Midnight"...). Yes, they've never been seen in the same room at the same time, but show biz is like that. Love this song and thankful that Papadelic didn't solely receive the great George Clinton songs on his former planet, but also had some old school r&b ballad singing up his sleeve (so he could sing the fx$(#*$k outta this!).
Written by Everett Bradley & Don Rosler
Video by Mike Chiodo (who, is a founding Holidelic member and co-wrote many of the other songs. Like Everett, a triple threat times 10).
DORIS FROM REGO PARK
This mostly lyric-only video is something we put together quickly, when the song was played all-of-a-sudden outta-the-blue almost back-to-back by WNYC and WFAN airing and then the NY TImes article in 2010. There's just too many stories to share about the song, Doris, how it came about and what happened before/during and after. I will write about when I open up the blog department of this new site.
"Doris From Rego Park"
Written & performed by Don Rosler (from "Rosler's Recording Booth").
"My Reprieve" (from "dogbrain: Nest")/Video by Jason Kessler/
Song produced/performed by dogbrain. Written by Jay Ward & Don Rosler
"Wreck" for Halloween 2014.
Jay and I wrote concocted it together, despite the interference from the townspeople, and a number of relatively harmless explosions.
I had fun trying new version of the video in iMovie land, but the track and the production, by Jay, are the stars, and it is one of my favorites.
Performed by Jay "dogbrain" Ward.
All instruments by Jay, sans background vocals by Everett Bradley.
Written by Jay Ward and Don Rosler
