It's a small thing. Yes, but I couldn't help myself. I had to share this.

When I think of fingerpickin' acoustic bottleneck slide Folk/Blues with a DIY homemade resophonic guitar, street performing, or spoon playing, I don't readily associate those musical folk arts with MTV. Who'd a thunk it? It's a Christmas miracle, it is!

Just over a year ago, I was invited by my friend Artis The Spoonman to help him with a video project. That project was slated to appear on MTV's new online site called B-Sides. Director Virginia Bogert's short doc has just been posted online. Here's a link to the site.

The video features pieces of several of my original musical compositions, including my new song, "That's More Like It". Once at the site look for the link to the "Seattle Scene". Once there, you'll find the video about Artis The Spoonmen. Enjoy!
