Recently I had the fortune of talking to a very creative and savvy friend of mine. This friend is much more informed about how to communicate with society in today’s gizmo-happy times, particularly when you want to reach a lot of people and share a variety of things from music to photography. Myself, I am a slow learner – but after much consideration I think I may developed some new and fresh ways to keep viewers of WWW.CCTRUBiAK.COM happy and entertained more frequently. I would also LOVE to hear of any suggestions on what YOU may want to see more of so please share your suggestions!
So here is how it will look going forward:
MUSiC TRiBUTE MONDAYS : This is where I will continue to post anything pertaining to music that influences me; from my tributes to albums; songs; genres; singer/songwriters; cover art etc. As of now I’ve been very sporadic in my tributes (BOB DYLAN, TANYA TUCKER, OLiVIA NEWTON-JOHN, LABELLE, CRYSTAL GAYLE, JUiCE NEWTON etc), but this will allow for more consistency. I’ve really only touched the tip of the ice burg.
FiLM TRiBUTE TUESDAYS : Similarly I will do my best to post tributes to the films/actors/actresses/directors/genres that again, have inspired me over the years. Up to now I have done short features on PAPER MOON (1974), KLUTE (1971), CARNAL KNOWLEDGE (1971), LADY SiNGS THE BLUES (1971), THE ROSE (1980) and THE PURPLE ROSE OF CAiRO (1985) but there are many more films to be discussed. Any thoughts from you?
ANYTHiNG GOES WEDNESDAYS : On a day like Wednesday I say anything goes – so I may feel like doing a tribute/feature on anyone from a LOCAL ARTiST, to an exceptional SUPERSTAR from our times who has relevance to me and my own sensibility. To date I’ve featured Ottawa-based photographer DARREN HOLMES, DEEDEE BUTTERS as well as STONEY MARTiNS and the OUTSiDERS – but keep your eyes open for future features on THE PEPTiDES, AKSHAY TYAGi, DANNiEL OiCKLE, DAN ZiEMKiEWiCZ and more.
QUOTABLE THURSDAYS : I am often inspired by the words of wisdom that can come from anyone as relevant as LADY GAGA to as everyday as the LiTTLE OLD LADY WHO SAT ON THE BUS NEXT TO ME. Here is where I wish to share these words of wisdom with you.
PHOTO FRiDAYS : Here I would like to post any image or photograph of my choice, be it one of my own or by any given photographer, living or dead. For all the years I spent pouring over TiME, ROLLiNG STONE, VOGUE, LiFE, iNTERViEW – there are millions of photos I find striking and inspirational – so let me share them with you!
Again – don’t be shy and let me know if any of you have ideas or suggestions on how to spice up CCTRUBiAK.COM.
Catch you on the flip side!
