I Want My Bob TV

This just in ... My first-ever music video is available for your viewing and listening pleasure.

I say "viewing pleasure" with hesitation, because I cringe every time I see myself in this. Hopefully, your response won't be so unnerving :-)

My longtime pal Lee Mueller produced this video for a film editing class he took this past semester. It's to an original song I wrote and recorded last year called "Sin Is On Your Face." The girl in the video is our theatre friend Liz Landeau.

Enjoy. And thanks to Lee and Liz for their generous work on this!

You can also view the file at Google Video.

3 Step Success Formula Video

In case you haven't heard, 2006 is the Year of Internet Video, a subject I covered in a recent post on my Music Promotion Blog.

The way I look at it, I am not simply an author. My mission in life is to empower musicians, writers, artists, and other creative people. Books are one vehicle I use to get that message out. But I also use whatever methods are available to communicate, including a web site, this blog, a podcast, public speaking, and now online video.

Want to see my first foray into using streaming video to educate and inspire creative people?

Just click the play button, give it a spin, and let me know what you think:

Feel free to share this video with your friends. You can send them to this page, of course, or go to and see the many options you have to share the clip -- and even embed it into your own web site.

FYI ... online video doesn't have to be flashy or expensive. I used a cheap home karaoke machine-type microphone to record the audio portion, and Windows Movie Maker to edit the video. Movie Maker comes free with the XP operating system. I love technology!

How might you use online video to promote what you have to offer?
