MUSIC ARTIST CALLOUT! Flashback Friday #FF — So, for the last month, I’ve been sharing 2011 interviews I did for OUTlander in Austin. They were with GodDes and She, Esther LaVonne, and two defunct bands, Petals and Lipstick Letters. The last thing I posted on my YouTube Page was the Official Lyric Video I edited for my brother, Panamatic, that many of you have already seen. Not so much, a flashback because I did it in January, but I did want to say that if there are any artists or bands out there that want a lyric video created for one of their songs, please message me here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, because I’d like to try my hand at another one. Thanks!

Throwback Thursday #TT — I was looking for that ’80s song that was like a Latin freestyle/eurodance song that had the lines “blow your whistle” and “pick up those sticks.” They used to play it here, in El Paso, on Power 102 all the time. I danced to it with my mom at a company party of hers years ago. I don’t know the artist or the name of the song. Anybody know it? So, instead, I’m going with “It’s Gonna Be a Lovely Day” by the S.O.U.L. S.Y.S.T.E.M. from The Bodyguard Soundtrack. Heard the original while having dinner with my family, recently.
Throwback Thursday #TT 2 of 2 — The second Jody Watley music video I want to share is “Most of All.” It has always been one of my fave of fave Jody tracks. Patrick Leonard was one of the two writers on it and he produced it as well. He worked with Madonna a lot during this time and that may be why I respond to it so much. It’s a sweet bittersweet song.

Throwback Thursday #TT — Not so much a throwback since this pic was part of a photo shoot I did some time last year in 2013. It is the last of the shoots I did like this, so it’s the last one I’ll be sharing. It was with El Paso rock-and-roll artist, Jimmy Electric.
It was kind of an impromptu shoot. I was living in Austin, at the time, but was back in town visiting for about a week. Before getting to El Paso, I frantically Facebooked to see if I could find a local artist who was interested in doing a creative, conceptual photo shoot for one of my music sites (that is no longer active) on short notice. This way, I could meet my deadline.
Jimmy Electric was game and jumped in willing to try to make something happen in solely one day in his apartment. The day became long hours, but we did it.
He pinned up a red sheet he had to use as a backdrop. I looked through some of his clothes and at the props he had strewn about his apartment. Well, they weren’t really props. Just stuff he owned. But, they were props to me. He had some cool stuff and we made it work.
A shoot like this can be fun and exciting, but only with the right people, fashion, props, and ideas involved. The problem is you don’t know that until you get there and it’s all been said and done. In this case, I consider it a success.
This is my favorite shot because of the boom box, jacket, and angle. Jimmy has a different fave that he used as the profile pic for his official FB Page. I believe it’s still there.
I’m back in El Paso, now, so support local talent. Check out the rest of the shoot in the Photos Albums Section of my Facebook Page and ‘like’ Jimmy Electric’s FB Page.
