GSP #22: An archive of all the promises we've made and broken.
Getcha Some Productions Podcast Episode 22 https://reverb.grsm.io/GetchaSome (https://reverb.grsm.io/GetchaSome) A podcast covering all things related to music production: from the first note to the last fan and everything in between. Our mission is to create music and to inspire others to do the same. Not your typical podcast, each episode is a live business meeting. We are figuring out how to build a music production company (a media empire) as we go and listeners come along for the ride. This is an archive of our progress or lack thereof. This podcast is always candid and unrehearsed. In this episode we discuss: This is episode 22. The double deuce. We’re rolling on 22s yo! Yo MTV Raps. Dan is bringing the heat! Dan is bringing fire! Dan is coming in hot! Dan is having a spicy hot love affair with his Fender professional jazz bass. He leaves it on the bed and he takes pictures of it and posts them on social media and people love it. Dan decided that if his bass was a human she would be the redheaded girl from that 70s show (Donna Pinciotti played by Laura Helene Prepon). Because she’s not the easiest to get along with but totally worth it. I talk a bit about how I learned a solo arrangement of a Christmas song (you can see were a bit behind on a podcast because I’m still talking about Christmas and it’s long gone). I also talk about about my old friend Jack Reilly (https://www.jackreillyjazz.com (https://www.jackreillyjazz.com)) who unfortunately has passed but I recount the musical moments of him coming over the house and playing tunes on the piano in particular playing Christmas tunes around Christmas time and the family sing-along but it was a pleasure having a very Skilled and knowledgeable musician in the house so it was not your average sing-along. Jack as an aside also happen to be a great scholar of Bill Evans who is one of my favorite musicians of all time and I happen to be re-reading a book right now that Jack wrote about Bill and it’s very interesting and inspiring if not intimidating. Link to arrangement of Christmas Tune: https://barrygreenevideolessons.vhx.tv/videos/the-christmas-song (https://barrygreenevideolessons.vhx.tv/videos/the-christmas-song) In 12 years I’ll probably have a whole set of Christmas music if I’m not dead. I’ve listened back to all of our old podcasts. I’ve listen to all the promises we’ve made and broken. We discussed the fact that, since we are such a young company, we need to do a “mission gut-check” pretty frequently. Maybe even as frequently as every 10 episodes. That way, we can always be revisiting and staying on target with what we’re trying to accomplish in this business. We spend a a few minutes remembering our old project Jollyship the Whiz-Bang (https://www.thewhizbang.org/about.html (https://www.thewhizbang.org/about.html)) and how that was a long running and relatively successful project. It was a band. A real band. We were in a band. We went on tour a few times. Recorded a bunch of albums. Now, the project is over and we do have some recordings to remember it but we don’t really have a lot of good video content or blog/documentary content for posterity and archival purposes. It’s like, with the exception of the albums, it just disappeared into the ether to be forgotten in the river of sweeping and discarding nature of time. The inexorable march forward. And we even did an “off off” Broadway play at a nice theater and we don’t have any video of that. That was a very elaborate in-depth production of our play and music and it’s a little bit insane that we don’t have a good catalog of this stuff. The idea behind this podcast is that, 10 years from now, when this is the biggest production company on the planet and people are offering us $100 million for our catalog, we will have the records of the process in the form of this podcast. This podcast is the catalog. This podcast is our posterity. This podcast is our archive of how this...
