Monroe Calculator Company

"Our latest offering is this snazzy, up tempo industrial musical that celebrates the strength and innovation of the Monroe Calculator Company. ...

the show is very well done featuring some top notch arrangements for what sounds like a standard big band supporting a number of singers who professionally deliver the material without a hint of irony. ..."
Pastor McPurvis shares Monroe Calculator Company - It’s A Brand New Ball Game.

Pinocchio in Outer Space

Well, 1960's tots loved outer space... and Pinocchio was a well-known character whose rights dwelled within the public domain... I guess this combo of ideas seemed like an obvious choice. A real seat-filler. Plus, it featured Mr. Arnold Stang (the voice of Hanna-Barberra's"Top Cat") as the voice of Nurtle the Turtle (created just for this production, I'm guessing).

Arnold Stang:
"One of the most recognizable character actors in the history of film, he is most likely remembered by latter generations for his equally recognizable voice. Small, slight, bespectacled with horn-rimmed glasses, bulgy eyes and a voice that was a sort of high-pitched nasally, gargly yodel, he was cast most often as impish, nerdy types. He was born on September 28, 1925 in Chelsea, Massachusetts and grew up there in the Boston area. He began his show business career at the age of 10 when he successfully auditioned for radio's "Horn and Hardart's Children's Hour." He has worked in every area of the entertainment industry starting in radio, the transition to television in its early years, theatre productions on Broadway which led to films...both live and animated and commercials."

The New Blogger set-up has arrived

Wave goodbye to the old blogger.
PCL is now monitoring the web from the new blogger outfit.

Scary. I know. We'll get through this experience. Together. Hold my hand. Stay brave and I think we will come out safe and sound somewhere at the end of the tunnel.
What will we see as we enter the light? Will there be free love? Free food? Are we going to walk in the high but smooth grass together naked under clear blue skies as the sun tenderly caresses and massages our skin? Will the beer be strong and good?
Or will we see evil trolls lurking behind dead trees in the dark poisonous forrest. Will we starve because the bird flu killed all tasty animals. Will all mp3s sound like Kevin Federline or Crazy Frog? Will Ted Nugent be there to greet us and wish us luck? Or will he just shoot us down on the spot?

We'll see.

Lee Hazlewood: 76

"... And now, with Hazlewood at age 76 suffering from renal cancer and peering into his own mortality, what does that fatalism feel like? What does true mortality look like as one enters life’s final stage? Hazlewood makes it sound like another assignment. “I didn’t get all that I heard in my head onto the damn records.” From the breadth and depth of classics, old (Poet, Fool or Bum) and new (his just finished swan song, Cake or Death), you can’t help but think he’s being falsely modest. Until you find out that there ‘s nothing false about him at all.

I don’t even have all my albums. I got a great story of how that came to pass. When I lived in Stockholm there was no crime at that time. Yet, my apartment got robbed. Now, I didn’t have a lot of stuff. But there was this long coat that I loved and my whole album collection—my stuff included. They only took my records. The cops didn’t speak English so I had to have a friend of mine translate the fact that only the albums I had made were stolen. Suddenly everyone in the room breaks up laughing. Then my friend translates into English what the cop said: “At least we know he wasn’t a music critic.” ..."

Robert McGinnis (Illustrator)

From mcginnispaintings.com:

"Robert Edward McGinnis was born in Cincinnati in 1926 and grew up in rural Wyoming, Ohio. His artistic talent was first encouraged by his dad, "Dutch," who helped his son draw such things as his favorite cartoon character, Popeye. Later, despite Robert's complaint that he would rather play ball with his friends (he was athletically talented and keenly competitive), Robert's mother, Mildred, insisted that he attend a drawing class held on Saturdays at the Cincinnati Art Museum. After high school, McGinnis hitchhiked to California and worked as an apprentice at Walt Disney Studios, drawing Mickey Mouse and other characters and learning about cartoon animation. Then World War II interrupted production of animated films, so McGinnis returned home and studied fine art at Ohio State University and took night classes at the Central Academy of Commercial Art. He also played the position of left guard on OSU's football team (for more information on this, read the entry directly below this one). In the mid-Fifties he moved to New York City with his wife Ferne, who is also talented, artistically and musically. (They subsequently had three children, and they have lived in Connecticut since 1960.) McGinnis went to work creating advertising posters at the Fredman-Chaite Studios. One day by chance he was introduced to an agent by a fellow artist. The agent took McGinnis's samples to book publisher Dell. As a result, McGinnis was able to shift his career into high gear, and in the ensuing decades he produced an astounding body of top-quality, highly expressive illustrations and fine art paintings."

Thierno Barry and friends: first meeting

These recordings of a Senegalese singer visiting The Netherlands where made during a live radio broadcast january 12th 2007 (except track 7 which was recorded afterwards at René Rikkers' house) with local musicans in Zwolle (Netherlands) which had never played with one another, neither with Thierno Barry. There was a small hour to get to know each other and to agree on what songs to play. There were only a few common French words to communicate with, so we tried to talk in a musical way, although in the small studio it was very difficult to hear each other's instrument while all were playing. Not everything went perfect, but every participant felt that something very special was happening here.

seperate songs:
1. Sant 10.5M
2. Improviation off broadcast 9.6M
3. The house of the rising sun 4.9M
4. Une petite improvisation 7.3M
5. Kairo 9.6M
6. Sama-way 12.2M
7. Sant (reprise) 11.9M

Thierno Barry sings about life and is here accompanied by local musicians from Zwolle: Inge Pruilaar (guitar and vocal on House of the rising sun and Percussion), René Rikkers (Djembé, Dum dum and percussion), Remco Takken (guitar on House of the rising sun and bass guitar), Jan Turkenburg (flute, pan pipes and penny-whistle)

In Sant Thierno (solo) thanks all his friends that helped him in his life. The recording starts off in limited mono quality (recorded from transmission), for the seperate stereo-mic was switched on a little late.
Track two is an improvisation, that took place during another item in the show, i.o.w. this was not broadcasted.
The house of the rising sun also starts in mono and continues in stereo half-way.
Kairo means: peace! Thierno describes in this song all the countries of Africa that are at war one way or another, the attacks in Europe and the wars all over the world. He urges people to get real and return to civilization.
Sama-way is dedicated to some very special people he has met in The Netherlands.
Sant (reprise) is recorded right after the show. René was so enthusiastic that he invited Thierno to do another recording at home as a demo to promote Thierno's music.

At a young age Thierno Barry played at cultural evenings and at the Alliance Franco/Senegal in Zichuinchor, Senegal. He wanted more, however, so he started an adventurous journey, alone with his guitar. He moved to Abéné, were one day he met René Nieuwenstein who arranged a release of his group Salam on the netlabel WM recordings and invited him to visit The Netherlands.

Reiniger's Prince Achmed

Stephen Worth of the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive Project Blog tells us a little about Lotte Reiniger and what is probably the oldest surviving feature-length animated film, "Adventures of Prince Achmed":
"... In 1923, Reiniger and her husband and business partner, Carl Koch began work on an ambitious project... a feature length silhouette puppet film based on "The One Thousand and One Nights". She worked with animator Bertold Bartosch and background artist Walter Ruttman for three years on the film. The paper cutouts were jointed using wires and delicately arranged on top of a lightbox, where it was photographed frame by frame. Reiniger continued to animate her distinctive silhouette films up into the mid-1970s. She passed away in 1981. ...

Archive volunteer, Eric Graf was perusing a local library book sale when he spotted an amazing find... a portfolio of prints from Reiniger's landmark film. Published in Berlin in the year the film was released (1926), this group of images shows just how beautiful Reiniger's work was... and how unique."
