Outside my window a new day approaches.  Dawn accompanied by the song of early birds and the scolding chatter of squirrels is much more pleasant than the piercing ring of an alarm-clock.  In less than hour (or two)  marchers/demonstrators/placard-holders/concerned citizens/disenfranchised members of the community/zealots/bigots/the curious/tourists and assorted gawkers will gather at the steps of the Supreme Court where inside nine justices will deliberate on the issue of marriage equality in America.  It's pretty hard to say that they will be deciding on the definition of marriage (see DOMA and Prop 8); which, unless one peers behind the veil of popular culture and accepted 'world history,' may seem irrefutable and impermeable.  Instead the real decision will be whether or not certain groups of individuals can continue to enjoy the benefits and privileges of a certain type of societal contract currently unavailable to others because of a extremely narrow interpretation of…

THE MUSIC VT: LUCA LASERRA

The PEEP-MASTER Interviews Luca Laserra

PM:  Fans have been watching and waiting for the new album; what can we expect?
LL:  I have been feverishly working on the new album.  I'm eager and excited to unleash my new album and share it.  It's been a true labor of love. I've put in blood and sweat, as well as tears, to this album and I hope it shows.  It's really a new extension of me.  I like to say it is innocence bleeding into decadence with no apologies.  There is definitely something for everyone with the new record.  It's a slight departure from 'Adrenaline' my first record.  I feel that the sound is of a more mature me expressing an adult point of view.  Yes, a progressive-house beat with pop sensibilities.
PM:  Did you write all the songs yourself?

LL:  Yes, I wrote every song on this new album.  Writing for me is very emotional, and cathartic.  I love the idea of channeling a point of view through the power of words and melody.  I see it as a creative fr…

Looking outside just now, it could be easy to forget that just yesterday a snow-storm was expected to blanket many parts of the East coast.  Instead, just loads of rain were received, and the garden seems quite rejuvenated as a result of this.  I see tiny shoots on the clematis vine and the rose bushes will blossom early and abundantly; butterfly magnolias and forsythia will erupt shortly, and the crocuses are almost ready to burst forth in proclamation of spring.  All this activity makes me happy.  Have a wonderful Thursday . . .
