The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.
I am a visual artist and writer living in Baltimore. I don't have any artist friends. Frankly, artists scare me, there so darn flaky. The above picture is either of me or proof that I'm a pretty decent artist. My goal is to be a self sufficient artist, whereas I wouldn't have to do something else in the day in order to eke out an existence. I also like to attend various cultural events around town. I go to plays, the symphony, etc. Also, I have Asperger's Syndrome. I found this out recently and it has explained a heck of a lot as to why I am as I am.

Today, I again spent my Saturday at the library. I went there to drop off the cd’s I borrowed a couple of weeks ago. The CD’s that were due today were: Buddy Holly’s Greatest Hits, Television’s Greatest Hits; Volume 7 Cable Ready, CBS: The First 50 Years, and Television’s Greatest Hits Volume II. So for the past couple of weeks I’ve been listening to the themes to TV shows and Buddy Holly.
From doing this I’ve learned that Jesse Frederick has a real knack for composing a hook. Frederick sang and composed the themes to Full House and Family Matters. When the show’s were originally on I never payed that much attention to their theme songs. However, listening to the CD I found their themes to be both hummable and instantly memorable.
I also liked Rockapella’s, Where In the World Is Carmen Sandiego? I have never watched Where In The World is Carmen Sandiego? so the tune was new to me. I also loved hearing an old favourite of mine, Joey Carbone’s theme to, It’s Gary Shandling’s Show. I’ve always loved the fun simplicity of that song.
I was stunned to find that Ann Hampton Calloway did the theme to The Nanny. If you can recall I saw the very energetic Ms. Calloway in concert at the BSO last season. She was simply fabulous!
Anyway, the CD’s I took back were soon replaced by new cd’s : The Great Depression: American Music in the 30’s, Enya - Memory of Trees, The Golden Age of American Rock ‘n’ Roll: Hot 100 Hits from 1954-1963, Volume 7, and Nipper’s Greatest Hits:The 50’s, Volume 1.
As you have probably surmised from my public library CD choices I have a snowball’s chance in hell of ever finding them on iTunes. The music that iTunes offers is usually new. They seem to rarely to back track and offer golden oldies.
