Official Selection to the 2009 Rhode Island International Film Festival

Thrilled is an understatement, so thankful to say that MOMz Hot ROCKs has been accepted for screening at the Rhode Island International Film Festival August 4th-9th,  2009

The festival is quite special, in the heart of Providence.  I like the way that sounds already.

It is also personally special to me as I lived outside of Providence when I was 2! and have 2 of my favorite people in the world, Madeline and Bill, close by.

I hear its quite fun, Certifiably Jonathan, a dadamentary on Jonathan Winters (about to be released on DVD) won an audience award there last year. I worked on that film too and can't wait to go myself.

August will be beautiful, everyone's invited.

Rock Star Mommy is a Big Idea

MOMz Hot ROCKs superstar Judy Davids aka Rock Star Mommy of the Mydols in Detroit has a whole page about her in The Big Idea's Donny Deutsch new book The Big Idea:  How to Make Your Entrepreneurial Dreams Come True, from the AHA Moment to Your First Million!

Page 45.

in the chapter called "Make Love, Not Work" under the subtitle "Living Loud" it reads:  

"This one will blow you away.  At age 42, Judy Davids made a career decision most girls make as teenagers. She decided to become a rock star.  And that's not all.   She had no training and didn't even know  how to play an instrument!  Yet over night Judy went from soccer mom to rocker mom."

Quoting Judy's blog:

It goes on to tell the story of the Mydols with such great writing that even I was inspired by us!  There is a 'Big Lesson' sidebar that reads:

"Be bold about following your dream.  The marketplace responds to boldness."

The page ends with a quote from Judy herself, " As long as you have passion and fun, and are constantly learning and evolving, you can do anything."

Way to go Donny for shining a spotlight on Judy.  She's so deserving, a great person, I love answering the phone from her, I never know what wild project is in the works and am thrilled and amazed to see the sprouts blossom.  It might now be an understatement to say SHE ROCKS!

Come out TONIGHT for Loene Carmen from Australia at SXSW

All you SXSW swarmers, come out TONIGHT 9pm to Stephen F's Bar, 701 Congress Street, Austin, TX and show some love to Loene Carmen!

Loene came through Los Angeles on her way to Austin last weekend and played at the Echo in my neighborhood for the Aussie BBQ. She was amazing, solo with an electric guitar she held her own and drew the crowd closer at a club usually packed with bouncing full size bands.  Her lyrics are lingering, crafted with Nashville mastery and georgeous string playing.

I've known Loene for a long time, she, her daughter and partner at the time sang a song on an album I produced for my son's preschool, Schooloaf:  Everything but the Crust Vol. 1. Her daughter Holiday is now 18 and in a band of her own, BRIDEZILLA with a large following and airplay to boot!

If you are in SXSW sieze this chance to see the lovely Loene.
