Internet Radio & One Last Awards Hurrah!

It’s the October Noizeletter!

What’s the difference between a hockey pig and a mom?* Here are the Top Five Noizy Thingz…

1) Catch The Internet Radio Broadcast!

Mark your calendars for The Kids Show on November 2nd at 6 PM EST, a Colorado radio program broadcast live worldwide on the web. We’ll play Doctor Noize songs and — get this — my Noizelet daughters will be discussing and sharing some of THEIR favorite music by other artists and composers! I’m actively lobbying Sidney to choose Shatner’s “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” cover. And it is no technical exaggeration to state that Riley is about to become a 3-year-old musiciologist whose musical tastes and insights are broadcast live worldwide.

2) Children’s Music Web Finalist!

Phineas McBoof is a finalist for the Best Recording For School Age Children award! This is the last award it’ll be up for — we’ve gotten great PR and won’t be paying more submission fees for competitions. We’ll spend that money instead on future products, signed Ringo Starr E-Bay memorabilia, and daily overnight mail love proclamations to Rick Astley. Thanks to all who’ve been so supportive. Only a few of you have truly thought I sucked, and only one of you actually used that suckiness as an invitation to write the “it sounds just like noise” criticism my moniker begs for. Being a musician named Doctor Noize is not unlike running for President under the name Albert Qaeda, so I thank you for your amazing restraint…

3) Weldon Dodd Is Noizemaker Of The Month!

Weldon Dodd, who has more children than hair follicles on his head, has been my buddy since kindergarten. Check out our website and I dare you to tell me it isn’t SICK — and I mean in the young hip urban celebratory sense of the word, as Weldon used in a recent email to me and his other Homeyz: “My Hello Kitty cleats are SICK!” As Doctor Noize’s webmaster, Weldon has donated hundreds of hours to create a site that clearly reflects the love of the game more than “just another job.” Thanks Weldon.

4) My Last Young Birthday!

October 30 is my last birthday as a young man. I’ll be… 29. (One of those digits is accurate.) Here’s my wish list… A new guitar; a very special private one-act play by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen; a bikini thong actually worn by Dick Cheney; a video of future Senator Obama biting the head off a live bat at an Ozzy Osbourne concert in 1986; a brain upgrade; an all-expense paid trip to Thelonious; your help booking a show at your kid’s favorite venue; and a gigantamous angel investor capital injection into Pictoria Creations. (Note: You don’t have to give ALL those things yourself; just pick one.) Ask yer kids what they’d get Doctor Noize for his birthday and post it in the forum. The top answer gets published.

5) The Part Where I Act Like Your Mother & Repeat My Advice!

You youngsters remember to buy yer tickets in advance for the Bus Barn show in Los Altos this weekend! I’ve told you every Bus Barn show has sold out, yet there are always a few people who show up the day of the event upset they can’t get into the first show. So eat yer vegetables and get yer tickets in advance! If there’s a huge influx of folks at the door, we’ll add a second show at 11 AM.

Thanks for yer support from yer buddy for life,

Doctor Noize

P.S. I’ve heard rumors that some of you will be writing in “Doctor Noize” for the Presidential election.
P.P.S. I think this is a really bad idea, and it would definitely slow down album production.

* It’s a rhetorical question, actually. Sorry for the confusion.
