Radio Star – Martha Wainwright

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Watching the news tonight, my heart goes out to all you poor NYorkers and New Jerseyites. I pray for you all and wish I could do something. Come to Montreal if you can. It’s a great place. There’s lots of room here. We need some serious immigration to Canada!

This video was inspired by Martha’s song Radio Star on her latest CD Come Home to Mama and the amazing full-Moons we’ve had lately that I’m in the habit of filming from our front porch. Sounds a bit grand. I use an old Flip videocam that I put on a tripod then go back in the kitchen and make supper while the Moon rises. The problem is the Moon is small and moves so slowly that I had to figure out ways to make it bigger, manipulate it and make it do silly stuff. I worship Steve Jobs (and proud of it) and everybody at Apple for making it the most innovative company that ever was/IS for us the artist/individualist/musician. Thank you Martha, Moon, Nessie, albino squirrel and cute dogs from Montreal’s Plateau, and Sylvan L. for putting it together for me in Final Cut.

MARTHA’S NEW WEBSITEMartha has a new CD. It’s got lots of great new songs beautifully produced by Yuka C. Honda. Here’s a video of Martha doing Kate’s Proserpina. This is the last song Kate wrote. It was around mid-October 2009. She sang it in the Royal Albert Hall Christmas show on Dec 9. This was to be her last public performance.
