Uncharted at Greenwich House Music School has emerged as one of New York’s most exciting and unpredictable live music series, drawing attention from tastemakers and curators from across the city. Every Uncharted performance features New York City artists premiering new projects or meeting with new collaborators for the first time on stage. Past featured performers include a collaboration between Marc Ribot and Emeline Michel, Sony Masterworks recording artist Bria Skonberg, Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings guitarist Binky Griptite, acclaimed harpist Brandee Younger, vocalist Deva Mahal, jazz trumpeter Steven Bernstein, Broadway’s Grace McLean (The Great Comet), avant-garde theater artists Erin Markey and Emily Bate and many more.

The new Uncharted season runs April 4 to May 2, 2019 and (new this year!) will set the stage for a robust plan of artist development and education. Uncharted artists will get GHMS support in a variety of ways including rehearsal and recording space, professional project feedback, PR and marketing advice, and instrument storage at no financial burden to the artist! The ultimate outcome is that the projects incubated at Uncharted will be developed and presented with our help at other storied venues in New York City (stay tuned!)

By now I’d like to think that you’ve seen the trailer for Disney’s “Dumbo” but if you didn’t please click HERE to be on point with us all. Today the Tim Burton envisioning of the classic Disney character opens in theaters everywhere. Let’s review the poster, premise and casting before we close this post up.

The Premise: Holt was once a circus star, but he went off to war and when he returned it had terribly altered him. Circus owner Max Medici hires him to take care of Dumbo, a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him the laughing stock of the struggling circus troupe. But when Holt’s children discover that Dumbo can fly, silver-tongued entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere, and aerial artist Colette Marchant swoop in to make the little elephant a star. (c/o Wiki)

STX Entertainment: “UglyDolls” Final Trailer

Though I felt it normal to have two trailers to share with you for a release, I had to admit that I was a bit surprised by a third and now final trailer for a movie like “UglyDolls”; “SHAZAM!” maybe, and “Avengers: Endgame” most definitely but not this particular kind of animated feature. This LINK will bring you to our other posts if you wanted to see them and we love when you spend a little more time here and then you can come back and enjoy this final trailer. Take a look.

The Plot: Moxy and her UglyDoll friends travel to the other side of the mountain where Uglyville nestles and finds the town of Perfection, a place where everyone is perfect. There they encounter Lou, who gathers recruits to train for perfection and ultimately find a child in the real world. Eventually, the UglyDolls learn that being oneself is more important than perfection when Moxy meets lonely perfect doll Mandy.

Happy 17th Birthday To My Cat Spooke (3/24/2019)

Hello my friends, I am happy to be blogging today in celebration about it being my beloved black cat Spooke’s Seventeenth birthday. As I’ve noted before, she was born in my first apartment over on Fort Hamilton Parkway and has been a part of my household ever since. She was the offspring of my still very much missed Momma cat Shadow who I lost in 2015. Spooke was initially kept to keep her mother company and she has not really lost any of her amazingly pleasant disposition. I’ll repeat myself from last year with the notion on how awesome it is to have had her for so long and its just amazing to know her actual birthday. Shadow had her kittens way back when on a night when I went to see the band Power Windows over at Peggy O’Neill’s bar not far from my house. When I arrived home at holy mackerel o’clock in the morning, there were kittens in the box with her. This photo below was Spooke just a short while ago. She’s pretty much adopted this part of the couch since I usually go there and I get meowed at when I am there and she wants it.

For the annual photo I didn’t have many ideas on what to do and I had envisioned something with several cards with some kind of cat themed dialogue but the idea was gone before I could figure something cool out. That made me just doodle a “17” and position it behind her on this spot. As you can see, she was not amused by my jostling about and calling her attention to the camera for the shot. While she is seventeen in people years, in cat she is actually 85 so she is very senior and allowed a little bit of cranky if she deems it necessary. Though still very talkative to me, she is slowing down a little bit and doesn’t bolt around the apartment as much as she once did. That’s fine because at times she was a blur when she did that. One of her favorite things to do is look at the laptop screen while I am typing away and just lazing on my shoulder while doing this. I need to snap a shot of that and add it into this post. I can add that she’s gotten to hear more Metal and Hard Rock than most of my friends give a chance to but don’t worry I am not blasting it too loud here since I have to focus on it for articles and absorb any subtlties. Don’t worry about her though because when she finds too much noise being the case in the living room she retreats to the bedroom and takes that over. That is where the next shot came from. As I’m posting this in the afternoon I can say that Spooke has already eaten some of her favorite food and she remains a crazy for gravy cat so I tend to buy those from the market more than the others. She will also get a few extra treats for the day as time progresses for being good.

Of course in these days of everything being showcased on Instagram, or as The Influencers would say “The Gram”, I gave Spooke her moment in the spotlight. This shot was taken yesterday before I went off to a couple of functions. We hope that you click the “<3" on the image since she deserves it.

Thanks again for listening, I hope that all of you readers with furry babies are spoiling yours as well when they have birthdays or anniversaries to being yours since they are so important to our daily life. Spooke means the world to me and I love her very much and tell her this every day. I like to think that after 17 years that she understands.
