I wanted to give people an update on what I have been doing. I have recently been spending time organizing my poems into chapters and deciding on what poems I am going to be publishing in my book. Altogether right now my book will have 4 chapters (the first is what has been previously written, posted on this site and put to cd. I have also decided to keep the poetry and songs separate leaving 24 poems in each chapter and I will have an EP album of about 6-10 country-rockish a capella songs which I will be working on recording soon. Which brings me to my next update, I will be trying to record videos of all my poems and also put them online. I will also be continueing trying to collaborate with other musicians/producers in mixing my material putting it to music mainly to provide online for my fans for free on myspace and facebook. I bought 100 blank cds and 100 sleeves to burn my a capella cd on, however I have to fix the "Wuuu Saa" poem as I left out a line on the final recording and being the anal OCD perfectionist I am, I want to fix it. Please check out my first online television appearance with Ben G on NoBsTV. You can see my performace portion at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8bgBEBGFxs and the interview portion at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuMDQB3GiZU&feature=related. Except for the swallowing break towards the end of Bridge the gap, I am really proud of my performances. I felt the interview went extremely well too, I was very relaxed and comforatable. Please feel free to email me and let me know what you all thought! AND PLEASE HELP THE JOE CONSCIOUS MOVEMENT BY SPREADING THE WORD!
