a day that will live in infamy? Nah, just kidding. Here’s the latest.

1. Had a mind blowing, A+ idea for AIWU (Alice in Wonderland UNLIMITED) marketing come to me. Well it didn’t actually come to me, I mean I worked for it with pen and paper, over and over again writing the words, AUDIENCE , STUDENTS and MARCUS. These words kept me on focus. I have to think about the audience first, and teach my new students artist to put the audience first. I can’t wait to test this new idea:)

2. A small movement from the first soprano aria from AIWU is mostly done. I want to put the prelim tracks up on youtube for students to practice with. Maybe I can get that in tonight before the eyelids fall.

3. I had a cool idea for the Caterpillar, who won’t actually be a caterpillar but instead will be a… (Shhh!)

4. Bunch of new stuff up at YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/marcusunlimited Happy Halloween.

5. I’ve been having fun with the Artist’s “Morning Pages” concept by Julia Cameron from her book the artists way:  (I was considering posting an Amazon affiliate link here but, I have to wait on something first.)

6. The original Time Machine by H G Wells is an amazing book. Such vivid Steampunk lore it is.

7. Recently found out that a young voice student won a 1st place, grand champion at a San Jose vocal competition. Nice!:)

8.  I’ve been thinking about letting students take a run at doing their own cut of my Harmonious Haiku albums: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/mjcu

9. I recently asked a question on Answers.yahoo.com about which 3 literary classics  pre-1900, would most parents desire for their kids to read prior to college. Some of the responses were obvious and wise, but I was quite surprised how only one book kept ending up in the top 3 must read; “Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice?” Not that its not a great read but I wouldn’t have thought it would have outscored Hamlet or Great Expectations, or…?

10. Newman’s own sesame ginger salad dressing is amazing on confetti coleslaw, wrapped in a heated corn tortilla!
