LOUIE’s in the House – a Richard Berry remix revisited

Here’s a tasty little gem for Friday the 12th….

Three years ago, I stumbled over an inspired remix of Richard Berry‘s original LOUIE LOUIE recording. Blue Johnson aka Bangkok Blue did a jazzy remix of the song, and shared it with the world via YouTube.

He called this revision “LOUIE’s in the House!”

He was born Richard Monsour in Boston, Massachusetts […]

a plea for my friends James MacLeod and Deborah Merchant

Today, I’m sending a shout-out for two friends that are battling cancer right now, and could use some assistance.

James MacLeod is a good friend I’ve known for three decades. I’ve worked with him on more video productions than I can keep track of …. with quite a few of them involving world leaders, […]

My primary New Year’s resolution is to work towards finishing more video projects, including the big project connected to this very website.
