A hiatus yes, but plans… have shifted!

by SirLady on August 4, 2015

Its been a great ride being in the indie scene throughout the years. I’m lucky to have been blessed with great people in my life both personally and professionally who believed in the work. And because of that, I was able to personally broker and score projects to some of the greats.

Things have shifted now, I live in Montana, and have fell in love with the luxury vacation rental market, which I simutaneously was doing alongside the music in Woodstock NY. It very successfully took of, thus the move out west for further expansion.  So my days are now spent a bit different than a year ago, but I still write often, and for anyone who is looking, I have an extensive catalogue available for license.

Moving forward, all the music updates and much of the catalogue will be on Twitter and SoundCloud. I’ll also be releasing an upcoming album over the fall with some of the work done during the past two years. A lot of treasures that will make that real music lover happy!

So for now, enjoy download and share what you like from the links below!

The Hiatus is now complete….

by SirLady on April 5, 2015

I’ve shifted gears…. Separating the music from all various forms of paper except for sheet music.

My wise 94 year old amazing elder from NY, asked me why the move to Montana…. I told her all the reasons why and she said so perfectly while taking a sip in between her martini, “Well Dear everyone just wants to be free’….

So its time to break the chain, and set music free. I’ll be posting free downloads from much of the music that has been done in the past 18 months, as a gift, as music was the gift given to me.

The good ole’ radio stations might be a little stagnant, but I’m really digging a lot of different online programming including this cool program from across the pond. Great music and good story telling in between.

 

 

Foodie Friday – A Cure For What Ails You….

 Fresh Ginger Tea

Fresh Ginger Tea | Big Girls Small Kitchen
POSTED BY CARA for Big Girls Small Kitchen blog  ON THURSDAY MAR 27TH, 2014 |

This afternoon, I’m going to sound like a hack selling some cure-all elixir on the street corner. This homemade, heart-warming, health-giving brew is so good, it’s worth the risk of like sounding like a shill, though.

I promise, this potion of minced fresh ginger slowly steeped into hot water, finished with spoonfuls of honey and squeezes of lemon or lime has cured me of: oncoming colds, indigestion, being freezing, exhaustion, and even the Sunday blues.

I first had a tea like this in a much richer variation, a thick, sweet liquid served hot in tiny cups. You could only drink a few sips, the tea was so rich and sweet, but the taste was so developed that when we looked at the recipe we were amazed to find just three ingredients: ginger, honey, and citrus. The instructions explained a lot. Those ingredients simmered for a long time, maybe even hours, until they reduced and the tea grew syrupy. In the end, I never made it this way–it was just a little too much.

When you need to drink a lot of tea–when you’re dehydrated or feel like you might be coming down with something like a spring cold–that syrupy stuff doesn’t do. You just can’t drink enough of it. And that’s the reason I started brewing a weaker version. The ginger steeps for at least twenty minutes, so there’s plenty of spice and flavor. I can’t explain what deliciousness happens to that flavor when you add the honey and lemon; that’s the moment the cloudy ginger juice goes from a simple tea to an elixir you might want to sell on a street corner, or at least tell everyone about.

The tea has become such a staple of my drinking life that when Skinnygirl Daily asked me to share a recipe inspired by my participation in the Healthy Habits Challenge, I knew it was time to post about the brew. There’s no one food or drink that makes me feel so consistently good after I eat or drink it as this tea, and so I thought I’d give you the magic formula for making the cure-all stuff yourself. Drink it after an indulgence, to ward off a cold, or to chill out at a moment when you feel some creeping nervousness. It’ll cure what ails you.

**Recipe**

Fresh Ginger Tea with Honey and Lemon
Makes 4 cups (I drink them all myself)

Ingredients
1/4 cup chopped ginger (from a roughly 2-by-4 inch piece, peeled)
4 cups boiling water
about 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
juice from 1/2 a lemon

Place the minced ginger in the bottom of a glass pitcher, four-cup measure, or French press (that’s what I used). Pour the water over, cover, and let steep for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, stir in the honey to dissolve, then add the lemon. Taste, adding more honey or lemon if you like. Pour into a mug or glass, straining if you wish (I never do, since the ginger naturally settles on the bottom). Drink hot, warm, room temp, or cold.

A huge trove of John Lennon’s writings and drawings is coming up for auction in New York City this summer, offering a renewed look at the former Beatle’s lesser known comic literary side. According to Sotheby’s, the 89-lot collection titled “You Might Well Arsk” constitutes the most extensive sale ever of Lennon’s original artwork, autograph manuscripts and corrected typescripts.

The items come from the private collection of Tom Maschler, the publisher partially responsible for creating Britain’s prestigious Booker Prize. Maschler worked with Lennon on two books in the 1960s, In His Own Write and A Spaniard In the Works, and the manuscripts came out of those projects.

20 Underappreciated John Lennon Solo Songs

“My relationship with John Lennon was different to those I had with all the other authors I worked with over my years as a publisher,” Maschler said in a statement to the New York Times. “Having seen a superb sketch of his that a mutual acquaintance showed me, I met with John to suggest that he should produce John Lennon ‘In His Own Write.’ I then had to inspire in him the confidence to write and produce the drawings.”

The collection includes a number of satirical drawings, doodles and gibberish poems, as well as the manuscript for a Sherlock Holmes parody Lennon wrote in 1965 called “The Singularge Experience of Miss Anne Duffield,” which is expected to fetch between $40,000 and $60,000. A 1964 drawing titled ‘Neville Club’ includes the caption, “Puffing and globbering they drugged theyselves rampling or dancing with wild abdomen, stubbing in wild postumes amongst themselves…” Its estimated value is between $18,000 and $22,000.

A John Lennon literary souvenir of a different sort went up for sale last week when auctioneers Cooper Owen offered a letter Lennon scrawled to Phil Spector blaming Keith Moon and Harry Nilsson for urinating on a recording console.

The “You Might Well Arsk” collection goes on sale through Sotheby’s in New York on June 4th. Highlights from the sale were recently exhibited in Austin and London and will be on view in New York beginning May 28th.
