...ok ok ok - I admit - I really did play the piano a lot - and I played a lot of atonal loud rhythmic stuff early on... so I don't really blame my mom for wanting to hear something she recognized...   ;-)   

I would have never developed into the player/composer/whatever I am today - had I not started pounding on the piano at such a young age - and my parent supported my many rounds of starting piano lessons, then quiting, then starting, then quiting...   and they put up with the trumpet playing, and the bands, and the 4 o'clock bar gigs when I was in high school...  sent me to jazz band camp and all that...

Wow.   I miss my mom.

John

p.s.  Hey - this got very unfunny all of a sudden!   Bad me.  Bad me.  Bad me.

Uh oh!  Time for "Ambient Celebrity Rehab"! 

"John, why so sullen?  Maybe if you played some MELODIES now and then, you'd feel better..."

"Your "music" makes me sad - you darken my world with your art.  I will no longer enable you by telling you I like your disks."

"Do you have to listen to this stuff every day?  True, it makes the French healthier, but that's in SMALL DOSES!"

"You can quit anytime you want?  Really?  Turn in your I-pod...  c'mon, hand it over..."

I wish I was a Glowworm; a Glowworm's never glum. 'Cause how can you be grumpy, when the sun shines out your bum?

Favorite comment from co-worker...
Older Georgia woman "This is really interesting.  It changes, but it doesn't really change."

I've been told it sounds like sci-fi movies, or a ride at Disney World.

BTW, is Ambient Celebrity an oxymoron?

Making the Ambient Band (or maybe Making the Supergroup)  sorta fashioned after P. Diddy's Making the Band

Steve Roach hosts a group of young and struggling ambient artists who live together and try to hammer out a record in Steve's studio.  Roach browbeats and intimidates the contestants, oftentimes making the female ambient musicians cry with his tough love straight 'out the desert.  Sometimes Steve makes a member do a silly chore like walk all the way to downtown Tucson to get Steve a sugar cookie, just to show their "hunger or passion" to be a ambient star.  Robert Rich and Gigi "Oophoi" make guest appearances to aid with Steve's pimping.

(f)Earfull

Unsuspecting contestants have cameras strapped to their heads and are dropped off at haunted hospitals, hotels, and houses - and subjected to an entire night filled with dark ambient music.

Hosted by Brian "Lustmord".

The Surreal Sanctuary


We go from rising wannabe ambient stars of the previous pitch, to washed up ambient hacks in this hilarious reality-drama.  Dirk Serries never stops with the gloating that he was the most accomplished of the house, which irritates Martin Franklin to no end, and the fisticuffs ensue!  Michael Stearns shows up unbelievably overweight, and we learn in the confessional that he's become a pill-popping religious fanatic, who denounces all his great works as "of the devil".  Sadly Nik Tyndall has had so much botox done that he is now unrecognizable.... not that any one would recognize him anyway  ;D

So we all have one episode that is outline based on our music.

Mine would be an hour long, no dialog, no action, me sitting in a chair, staring at a blank wall. :D

Start with 10 artists. The first artist who sells 9 copies of their CD/CD-R/download is booted off because no true ambient musician moves that much product. This way you can get factions and manipulators getting everyone to gang up on one artist by buying his product. Then the gang turns on another of their own. The first of the remaining 9 who sells 8 copies gets booted. etc.

Eventually there are two left. Who wins? The one who can hunt down an original vinyl recording of T.O.N.T.O's Expanding Head Band.
