when my friend ashley had her third child, i asked “how ya doing?”
her reply “i’m drinking from the saucer.”
she said her cup was so overflowing that she was drinking from the saucer.
that’s how i felt last night after our UP IN MY TREEHOUSE musical.
i was drinking from the saucer.
after months of practice and preparation, of songs and motions the choir delivered. the kids were so good.
after months and months of practice, filming, editing, the actors delivered. the narrative part of the show was touching and poignant, and such a blessing.
as part of our program, we had mustache-on-a-sticks and kazoos.
i made a deal with the choir on the front end that if they didn’t misuse their prop, or use it at the wrong time… they could keep it when we were done. everyone got to keep their props.
the songs were great.
one of the songs, i got to co-write with curt campbell. jeremy brown produced the song. alex shot a music video for us. the whole thing was a blast from beginning to end. you can get a free download of our song here: http://www.longhollow.com/articles/read/800
the other songs are a group of brilliantly written songs from the SLUGS & BUGS UNDER WHERE? album. songs like Mexican Rhapsody and Ninja got a strong response.
