Margie's!

     So today, I got excused from school because we are doing NOTHING! So, my sister and I are spending some time at Margie's in Down Town Greeley! It is so much fun! The smell of fresh coffee filling the air! But I have to go back to school... I am going to enjoy my day today though!

Fun Friday - What's For Breakfast?

Fun Friday – What’s For Breakfast?

 

Well, it’s certainly been a newsworthy couple of weeks hasn’t it? So, UN resolution 1973 means we’ve got the go ahead to use all necessary means to protect the civilian population of Libya, Bahrain invited a one thousand strong Saudi task force in to quell the protests there, thirty pro-democracy protestors have reportedly been shot in Yemen (according to today’s lunchtime news) and of course Japan has experienced a magnitude 9.0 earthquake, a tsunami and is now facing a category five accident with wider consequences due to the ongoing situation at Fukushima.

 

It kind of takes your breath away doesn’t it? Here’s a fictional story about a man on his birthday.

 

It’s a Sunday, he wakes, groggily eyeing the clock on the bedside cabinet that dutifully informs him it is 9.26 a.m. He turns over and notices the absence beside him. Hauling himself out of bed he makes his way into the kitchen from where he can hear activity of some description.

 

He stands in the doorway and clears his throat to announce his arrival to his significant other as she pours a little oil into a frying pan. She turns and smiles, returns the pan to the hob and the oil to the cupboard. He looks at the worktop and notices the packet of bacon, the sausages, the carton of eggs, the bread in the toaster, the mushrooms and the can of baked beans as she walks over to him. Placing her arms around his neck, she kisses him softly, does the nose-rubbing thing and says, “Happy Birthday hun.”

 

He considers the situation, remembering that this year and last they haven’t had to take a day off work on his birthday, as indeed they had done the previous three years. All told, for the last four years she has cooked him a fry up on his birthday and, given the evidence before him, he is reasonably confident he knows how the next hour or so will pan out.

 

“What’s for breakfast?” he asks.

 

She narrows her eyes and gives him a playfully delicate slap on the cheek. “What do you think?” she replies with evident disdain before pulling away and proceeding to fill up the kettle.

 

Below is a video pointed out to me by a rather creative animator chap (who’s doing a video for the Inkysmudge track The Needs Of Strangers but that’s something for another day) about motivation. It’s a TED talk by Daniel Pink about how what you think motivates people, in fact, oftentimes doesn’t. Anyone who’s ever worked in an organisation where they want to find out how they can make staff enjoy their work more without giving them a pay rise may recognise some of the things he says ;)

 

 

The most salient point, I think, is that business does not do what the science tells them. That’s right. Apparently a lot of people go around doing the opposite of what all the evidence tells them they should do. That I could put on my dalek voice and walk around the room saying, “Extrapolate, extrapolate, EXTRAPOLATE!” goes without saying.

 

Instead I’ll probably just look at the evidence and ask, admittedly somewhat sarcastically, “What’s for breakfast?”

2 Big Shows Coming Up!

First of all, I will say - Hello. How are you? I am phenomenal, thanks for subconsciously asking.


I'll be performing with Sound in Stone, Brown Bird, Eye Witness, and Bella Birds!! Every one of these guys has done great things and continues to work hard. I'm really pumped to see Brown Bird. I've missed every opportunity over the years. Always heard good things about 'em.

The next show is the 26th @ Lucky Dog Music Hall 

Peyote Radio Theatre: A Tribute to the music of Jeff Buckley - Thanks to Derek Kerswill, Roger LaVallee, and Ron Mominee, we've put together a great set of songs reaching across his short but explosive and intensely influencial career. More information will come on this very soon! Keep an eye on my facebook page.

Another post is coming soon as well about the plans unfurling around my first ever studio album. So stay tuned, be excited with me, and get ready for great things to come!

Love and Sugary Sweetness,
--dam

Gearing up for one or more new albums

Hello Friends and Fans,

It's been a cold, but productive winter here on the Benderosa, where I've been working diligently on a whole herd of new songs, many of which are in the Country and Americana genres, and a few of which are more alt-rock or folk-rock.

I'm also on the lookout for future bandmates in my area, starting with the drums and bass. The rhythm section is the foundation of a song, whether it's recorded or performed live, and I want to find muscians with the right chemistry. I love the sound that Robert Plant got on his last two albums and I think that percussion can do a lot more than keeping time and laying down the backbeat, although those are tremendously important, too.

I'll keep you posted on my progress. Meanwhile, I hope to see you at 8:00 pm, Monday, March 28, at the Double Door in Chicago. Just $5 gets you a rousing half-hour set with me plus four more acts. It's an Americana extravaganza. 

Till then, cheers,

Ben Sage
