    Interview for The Amazing Adventures of Paddy Platypus

    in Books

    By Tom dePaolo Illustrated by Tom Swimm Can sudden fame and fortune replace the love and connection we have of our home? What is a platypus and what makes these creatures so unique in the animal kingdom? These questions and more are answered in this heartwarming story about a platypus that discovers that home is truly where the heart is. “The Amazing Adventure of Paddy Platypus” is the story of Paddy, the fastest swimmer on the island of Tasmania. He is so fast that Sir Hugh Tidybrooke, the head of the Department of Waterways, Foreign Affairs and Underground Railways convinces Paddy that he should go with him to the United States and enter the swimming championships in Los Angeles. Paddy wins all the races he enters but is frustrated with the hubbub of activity in the big city. He doesn’t enjoy his sudden fame - reporters harass him, bellboys try to take his traveling kit, and his life is turned upside down. In the final championship ocean race, he surprises everyone when he keeps on going and swims all the way home to Tasmania and peace.    Show More Show

    The Musicians Social Club's Blog Talk Radio Show

    in Music

    On Friday December 27, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. est. I will have the privilege to interview singer/songwriter, Laur'e Pen. She is an infectious young personality. The artist formerly known as Lauren Watson, she grew up being inspired by many of the twentieth century’s recording artists like Lauryn Hill, Black Eye Peas, Beyonce, Frankie Beverly, Michael Jackson and James Brown to name a few . But Laur’e Pen is definitely a product of the twenty first century. Laur’e is a multi-genre artist broadening her appeal to a mass following. But if you had to categorize her style, I wouldn't try, It’s like trying to categorize Miracle Whip, Kleenex, the Platypus and Prince. She is what she is and she does it like she does it. Laur'e Pen stands out from the other artists because she is multi gifted and she thinks outside the box. This makes her more of a polished jewel than a rough cut stone. Pen is ever evolving and reaching for her higher “PENness”. Laur'e is about to expand her brand into some entrepreneurial ventures in the near future. A plan that will solidify her place and establish her as the indie "Super Star" she is destined to be.  Laur'e released her first EP "Poison" and it has been garnering a great deal of online buzz ever since. Her debut video "Poison" ("POISON" Laur'e Pen

    in Books

    Daniel Klein steps into the spotlight to talk about his journey from jokes and stunts to celebrated author. Get to know the man behind the best-seller, what he stands for, how he wants to be remembered and why he chose to write, on this special edition of Author Spotlight.

    Daniel Klein journeys to the Greek island Hydra to discover the secrets of aging happily. Drawing on the lives of his Greek friends, as well as philosophers ranging from Epicurus to Sartre, Klein learns to appreciate old age as a distinct and extraordinarily valuable stage of life.

    He uncovers simple pleasures that are uniquely available late in life, as well as headier pleasures that only a mature mind can fully appreciate. A travel book, a witty and accessible meditation, and an optimistic guide to living well, Travels with Epicurus is a delightful jaunt to the Aegean and through the terrain of old age led by a droll philosopher.

    Malachi Bazan On Primetime

    in Culture

    Listen Live @ http://www.swoopsworld.com
    On Thursday November 3, 2011 at 12pm/PST our guest will be Malachi Bazan of Revenge of The Platypus. Tune in at Swoopsworld.com.

    Revenge of the Platypus

    West Coast trip hop band Revenge of the Platypus has been compared to everyone from Brooklyn duo Javelin to electronic duo Ratatat, but he draws his inspiration from sources ranging from RJD2 to Leonard Cohen. These are the sounds of electronic music, chill wave, and indie. It is perfectly designed for the placement in Film, TV and Commercials, what with its offering as two separate CDs, “Dreams” (the one with vocals) and “Dreams Instrumentals” (the one without).

    The creation of Pamona, Illinois-born Malachi Bazan, “Dreams” and “Dreams Instrumentals” follow the release of Revenge of the Platypus’s initial recording “First Flight” from 2010. All of his art finds its genesis in Malachi’s long history in the film and video game community. As a digital sculptor (sometimes called a character modeler), Malachi worked on the movies “The Barnyard,” “Night at the Museum” and “Pulse.” He then turned his attention to video games: “Shadow Run” and Sony’s spy-centered “The Agency.”

    Every episode of Swoop’s World is archived here on the website. You can find it the next day embedded with the weekly episode description. Or log onto iTunes and download it straight to your favorite MP3 player.

    DDFZ PRESENTS...Lamar Webster

    in Social Networking

    Music Biography for Lamar Webster
    Bassist Lamar Webster grew up in the Midwestern town of Dayton, Ohio, and by age 12 had taught himself, by ear, to play keys, guitar, and bass. Growing up in Dayton meant being exposed to several musicians, who later became famous in their own right, including The Ohio Players, The Majestics, The Fabulous Originals, and Lakeside, among others. Currently, Lamar is the editor of an online newsletter called the DMG (Dayton Musicians Guide), which details the rich musical history of the local Dayton music community, focusing on the era from the mid 1960s.
    A self proclaimed historian of the Dayton Funk music genre in particularly, the DMG newsletter has been in existence for the last few years. It is forwarded across the country for fans of famous, Dayton musicians and many others, not as famous, but just as talented. Because of his efforts, research, and work preserving the history, the local Dayton music community is paying tribute to Lamar and the DMG with a show at Gilly’s Jazz night club in Dayton, on Sunday, August 14, 2011 at 7 PM.
    Lamar learned, by watching other Dayton groups at various talent shows and battle of the bands, alongside many who would later become famous, like The Ohio Players, Lakeside, Zapp & Roger, Slave, Faze-O, Platypus, and Heatwave. After graduating from Nettie Lee Roth HS in Dayton, Lamar played, briefly, with a top flight group the Soul Experience, and a few other bands. Eventually, with his brother Dallas Webster, he started a band called Cypress, a self contained band, which later became Record Player. Record Player was one of the top cover Funk bands in the area, and they opened for several acts including the Bar-Kays, Al Hudson & One Way, Captain Sky and Bobby Blue Bland.
