“Hello In There” By Mister D: A Video By Katrin…For Me!!!!
And Happy Labor Day Weekend – Be Safe! See Ya Soon

Mister D: It’s funny how inspiration works. As a kid I was inspired by Bette Midler, Bruce Vilanch (yes, I was smart enough to know Mister V’s influence at an early age, after all, I was a Divine Child myself), Carole King, and Elton John. Of course, Bette led me to discover the likes of great songwriters like John Prine, Tom Waits, and Patty Griffin, to name a few.

Anyway, I did a one or 2 take version of Bette’s “Hello In There” a few years ago (not the best I’ve sung it), and some people really liked it. Katrin and Crystal were 2 that asked me to put it up on My Space, so I did, because I tend to do what I’m told…especially from 2 lovely ladies such as these. They’ve been big BLB supporters for a long time. Well, Katrin made a video for it (I believe she said she’s a newbie at this, so wow!)…it’s hard for me to say it, but she was inspired by my performance, plus she was inspired by a lot of the original video work Darrell Redmond had done (has done?) on his site, Bette On The Boards. You ladies and germs also need to check out his personal website: www.darrellredmond.com Read More

Non Bette-Related: I Need A Favor, If You’d Like To Help Someone (Not Me!)

Mister D: My good friend, Lorna Flowers, a songwriter here in Nashville via London, placed 3rd in the Country section of the Unisong contest this year and they’re having a People’s Choice vote from now until September 10th.

You can vote 3 times a day so if you could help my friend out that would be fabulous. With the prize money, she could actually afford some of the lawyer fees to become a bona fide US citizen. Yippee-ky-Yay…that would be awesome.

Remember: Her name is Lorna Flowers and the song is “I’m Not Ready Yet” Read More
