My friend and fellow blogger, Joe.My.God. used to refer to himself as "dead inside." I challenged myself to write a song that I felt caught the spirit of his statement. So, I wrote a song called (of course) "Dead Inside" and enlisted the great transgender singer Alexandra Billings to sing on the demo. Here is the product of our collaboration.
Living In The Bonus Round on blip.tv is a mix of my online reality show, The Jim & Steve Show, music videos, podcasts, random video bits of live performance, vlogs and interviews. Jim and I travel a lot behind the scenes of show business and we meet a lot of interesting people.Professionally, I am a songwriter. A former Baptist Gospel singer turned cover band musician turned singing waiter turned LA music industry exec turned 0ff-Broadway musical theatre composer (completely by accident) turned blogger turned actor turned video nut. (But who isn't?)I remember being an early adopter of blip, but then migrated to YouTube. However, I like this blip TV player where someone can come and just watch my shows without having to click a lot. I'd love your feedback. MORE RANDOM BIO BITS: One of the first Internet diarists. AIDS survivor. (I'm historical!) Listed below: A few of my awards for the musicals "The Big Voice: God or Merman?" and "The Last Session" which I wrote with playwright Jim Brochu.
