“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 I was so flattered by the video and the response to some of my music that it’s inspired me to keep on practicing and recording…so the wheel of inspiration keeps on turning. Not sure if I expressed this quite right, but I wanted to thank Katrin, Crystal, Max, Todd, Herb, Darrell, and others who have written me about my music and my dreams. To be honest, this has not been the best of years for me, but things are looking divine at this point…it helps when you have friends. And ya know….Ya Gotta Have Friends!!!! Love, Mister D Give Katrin some positive love for this!!! 🙂 Direct link to video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zr0SL2_q7MI Also check out Katrin’s other videos on YouTube.com: Click Here Visit Katrin’s My Space Page: http://www.myspace.com/donbradshaw

Mister D: Na na na na na na! I’m telling on you! That’s what I would entitle the email just sent to me. Have a gander!
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN! I BW was not happy to find your webb moving into the Jeff Stryker arena, Therefor, Please remove me from your sight and I’ll be informing Ms. Midler about this matter. I had hoped you”d be on the up n up but I now see that I want other avenues by which to connect with the woman I find to be one of the Best in the business. Therefore, Having the standards I have and I’m sure she would agree, Remove me at once and do not contact me any further other than to let me know you received this, Thank-You, BW ...

Mister D: Bruce gets chatted up by Mr. Billy Masters (why, oh why can’t I get a teensy interview???) Bruce and Jeff Stryker!!!! Bruce to do his one man show as a benefit for the Provinctown Theatre Labor Day Weekend!!! I do believe Mister Vilanch qualifies as one of the hardest working men is showbiz!!! Did I use enough exclamation points in this update????? (!!!!!) Love, Mister D From Bay Windows by Billy Masters August 24, 2006 (Mister D: The above show (in EL-Lay) has been extended (no pun intended) thru Sept 3, 2006) For ticket information: Click Here)
I had a chance to chat with the divine Bruce Vilanch last week on One In Ten, the weekly gay radio program on Boston’s WFNX. We kibitzed about the show he’s been working on in Los Angeles with Jeff Stryker in addition to some special upcoming gigs. You can listen in at www.BillyMasters.com. One thing La Vilanch is particularly excited about is heading to Provincetown over Labor Day weekend. No, he won’t be vacationing (although something tells me he’ll get some fun in). Brucie will be doing his fabu one-man show as a benefit for the Provincetown Theatre Sept. 1-3. For more information, you can head to PtownTix.com. FYI, I’ll be at the Friday night show (like Bruce, I love an opening). ...

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 theyâ€™re having a Peopleâ€™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” Anyway, here is the link to vote: http://www.unisong.com/PeoplesChoice.aspx
Here’s a little more about the contest: Voting is now open for the Unisong People’s Choice Award. Vote for your favorite songs! You can vote up to 3 times per day. Vote for your favorite song 3 times or vote for 2 or 3 different songs. You can vote everyday. The choice is yours! The People’s Choice Award of $500 USD will be awarded to the best song as voted for by the public online during a three week voting period. Voting ends on September 10th. The winner will be announced on September 15th. It’s easy to vote for your favorite song(s). Once you have decided which song(s) you’d like to vote for, simply click the button next to the song name that says “VOTE”. It’s that easy! Please note that we have decided to display the songs in a changing “random” order to avoid influencing the voting. The songs displayed are the top 4 winning songs from all 17 categories. ...
