A Communique from Skip

At the CMJ Google Musicians Gallery, 10-18  Open House Gallery NYC.  Open to CMJ badge holders, Industry guests. RSVP, 2 PM to 2 AM, Followed by another impromptu performance.  All nine of us with Jay, debuting ’10 10′.  The following day we will be taking part in a panel discussion at Paley Center, (CMJ badge holders, media RSVP guests only) 1 PM.  Many thanks to all who took part in Occupy Wall Street #Sept 17 anniversary, to Anonymous for keeping the site going, (after Jay’s apparent firing by Nathan), and to the very handsome Tom Morris.

It’s with some trepidation that I make an update, to make a clarification, or address some concerns of critics, (as they may be), concerning musical directions, Films Crew Band, (Collective’s) involvement in activism even at the periphery, these weren’t my decisions and the directions not mine, (as much as I agree and share in their vision), they were Shawn’s, we are working from his back catalog and recordings. My cousin, an almost peerless musician, composer, and honorable as a human.  A special thanks to those of you who have been so encouraging and supportive, especially Kurt Vogl.  We will have some site updates rolling out, and as some may have noticed, Chris Sweeney is making a move from behind the drum kit to focus on engineering.   Skip Walker.

A Communique From Tom Morris (Originating Poster

First and foremost, I would like to thank whoever wrote the “About Tom Morris” section. It was both precise and flattering!

On a different note, I have been on hiatus for a couple years. Pursing a master’s degree and educating myself in other ways. What were those lyrics? “She can’t be convicted, she’s earned her degree.” Yes, once my program is completed I will be unstoppable, but definitely not impenetrable. Wink, wink. Speaking of higher education, I remember the good ole’ days when SZ would mesmerize me with his use of higher vocabulary. It was like trying to decipher ancient hieroglyphs.  I am most confident that him and I would be able to have marvelous conversation with one another now.

However, education does not consume my life. I do have a fun side too. For instance, this summer I bought the World of Warcraft game. Yes, I am guilty as charged!  The game allows you to choose an individual’s race and class, which is an interesting concept. Though I was displeased when ‘Queen’ was not a class option. I have been called a “bitter queen, ” “size queen,” and not to mention I think Queen’s hit “Killer Queen” was written about me. Strangely enough, ‘Shaman’ and ‘Mage’ were class options, but does Blizzard Entertainment really think I am trying to be stunt double to Victoria C.? Glad I kept that receipt. If only we could return all dysfunctional things…and people, the world would be a better place.

I have missed all the crew. It has been too long.

Love, Tom
