Hey! My friends are competing for a grant to help improve LA’s arts and culture… If anyone is curious or lives in LA and would like to know more (or vote for their project if you like their idea), please follow the link.
Their idea: Play With Music Platform
PWMP is a comprehensive, scalable music platform for education. We’ll start as a pilot after school program & scale into a tablet app based platform.
PWMP will teach not only basic music skills, but the fundamentals of modern audio engineering, sound design, production & editing. Starting with a song structure provided by The New History, students will create & play their own song “parts”. They’ll choose an instrument (or use what is being taught in class), and each student will perform their own original “part” on video. Then they’ll build a “virtual band” by assembling their video performance with other videos made by classmates, and/or from our PWMP Database (a database of peers, including kids in other schools, & pros).
“Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.”—The Little Prince (via thepussykitten)
A repost from years ago, but necessary… especially when you realize you were way too nice to someone. I don’t know if I believe in karma, but I’m learning my lessons this year. Now, for some grooves — headphones on and volume turned up. Play on, kids.
Surely this is a repost, but this song popped into my head this AM and required some attention. It’s perfect. As I cuddle my cup of coffee this morning, sort through the thoughts in my head… I see that calm grooves are the best complement. Sorry Taylor Swift, I do like to dance, but for now… let’s mellow it out.
Hey Everyone - Stephen has been training his ass off for months… and has super dedicated his life to prepping for his triathlon with Team in Training to help bring awareness to and help fight blood cancer.
He has 1 day left to fundraise $700 to meet his goal and every bit counts. Please donate if you feel that you can — $25 will go a long way — if only 28 of my followers donate… he will have reached his goal! Then all he has to do is kill the Pacific Grove Tri. ;)
