ARTIE WAYNE ON THE WEB OCTOBER BULLETIN BOARD

October 27, 2011

My longtime friend Grammy winning producer, engineer, and music supervisor Brooks Arthur called me up to thank me for the article I wrote about him a few weeks ago. He also asked if I would post his thank you to everyone who took a moment to write a comment…

Artie:
“Since I do not have access to your entire mailing list, please be kind enough to pass my thank you note along to all your readers for me.

WOW! Quite an experience … thinking I was gonna’ read an article (a little blog) and then BLAMMO, messages and wonderful notes from you, your readers, my colleagues and of course … Friends. Well, truth be known, everyone of you guys and girls and groups and singers & musicians & producers & engineers & studios have helped to make me who I am today. Every session, every moment, every laugh, every tear, every hit recordand those records that should have made it but didn’t, are all a part of my heart forever!

It took alot of doing to scroll thru the tributes and remembrances without welling up a few times, but I powered thru it.
                                                                                                                                                                                                Yours in song, FOREVER!”

This seems to be the year of the documentary, with the Phil Ochs film, “THERE BUT FOR FORTUNE”, and GEORGE HARRISON’S, “LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD”, tearing up our collective conciousness. Now we can look forward to BEACH BOY, DENNIS WILSON and THE COWSILLS coming to theaters, and finally the long awaited film celebrating BOB MARLEY which is in final negotiations, and will be on our screens late next year!

People have been asking me how my stem cell procedure (using my adult stem cells…not embryos) is working. I tell the them that I’ve gone from feeling incredible for a few hours…to feeling like I’m gonna’ die! As the weeks go by though, I’m starting to even out and feel optimistic that I’ll walk again!

IN THE LAST FEW WEEKS WE’VE BEEN READING ABOUT THE “OCCUPY TOGETHER” MOVEMENT, WHERE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD HAVE GATHERED TO PROTEST AGAINST INEQUALITY, MONETARY DISFUNCTION, AND THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE.

WHEN ASKED IF SHE WOULD ALLOW HER SONG, “SHINE” TO BE USED AS THE ANTHEM FOR THE MOVEMENT, SINGER/SONGWRITER HEIDI LITTLE, SAID SHE’S “HAPPY TO LET ANY ORGANIZATION USE HER SONG AS LONG AS IT’S IN THE NAME OF PEACE.”  http://heidilittle.com

The quote of the day comes from Producer, composer, and all around good guy, QUINCY JONES. Even though I haven’t seen Q in years, I remember the time that we spent together as one of the highlights of my life! I read something recently he said to his critics that inspires me whenever I get low on self esteem.  “Not one drop of my self-worth depends on your acceptance of me”

AFTER BEING RAINED OUT LAST MONTH, MY FRIEND DON ORIOLLO, WILL BE HAVING HIS ART SHOW IN FLORIDA, FEATURING HIS PAL, WORLD-WIDE ICON, FELIX THE CAT DEPICTED IN DOZENS OF DIFFERENT SETTINGS AND ART TECHNIQUES. FOR MORE INFORMATION GO TO http://felixthecat.com

    Great idea for a Bulletin Board, Artie … and I love the photo you used to get the ball rolling! Good job.


  2. Occupy Wall Street is a dysfunctional movement with many dysfunctional players, people who hate this country, socialist, and people that are so ignorant and have no idea why they are there. Now we find out the group Acorn, now under different names all over the country, are “organizing” this mob. It has nothing to do with peace as we’re finding out day after day. And whats with a protest the protestors stay in place indefinitely. The science of that is disgusting. There are hygiene problems and more than just sleeping going on in those tents. This a mess with political sanctioning from an administration that itself is dysfunctional.

    • Artie Wayne Says:

      TONY…YOU’VE MADE A LOT OF GOOD POINTS. UNFORTUNATELY, THERE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO PARTICIPATE IN SUCH GATHERINGS WHOSE AGENDA HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PROMOTING PEACE.

      IT TRULY IS SAD, SINCE PROTESTING HAS BEEN THE ONLY WAY TO EFFECT CHANGE IN THE U.S. THROUGHOUT OUR COUNTRY’S HISTORY. ONLY ONE THING HAS BEEN APPARENT IN ALL OF THESE RECENT DEMONSTRATIONS, THERE ARE NO LEADERS TO BARGAIN WITH…NO COMPROMISES TO BE MADE, AND NO ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN WITHOUT CONSEQUENCES.

      WE HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT DESPERATE PEOPLE WILL DO DESPERATE THINGS, EMBOLDENED BY SEEING OTHER PEOPLE ON TV AND THE INTERNET, WHO SEEM TO GETTING SOME KIND OF SATISFACTION

      IRRATIONAL RATIONALIZATIONS ARE NOT GOING TO SAVE OUR NATION…ONLY GOD CAN!


      • You’re right Artie … Only God can but we have shut Him down and so deeply secularized the country we don’t go to His principles and precepts any longer for the answers. A sweeping change back will be a daunting challenge for the country. I think that so many will be reluctant to do that. It might even be bloody if the progressives see an erosion of what they have achieved. Look at how much this country has changed and look at how everything is failing since we’ve turned our backs on Him. Like I’ve said many times in my writing, How do you like America without God so far?!


  3. God is alive and well in the hearts of every man , woman, and child on planet earth. Didn’t you hear? It’s an uprising … full of love, respect, and care for one another. That is why we all came here. Your friend in music and positively transforming the planet Heidi Little

    I ever have.
