Music Messenger Bags @ Spreadshirt Store

Please note the new music messenger bags @ my CHM Music Stuff Spreadshirt store with bass clef or treble clef graphics. These messenger bags are different from my CafePress bags in that they come in black or gray. See a black one below with a silver treble clef graphic.

Fender® Hello Kitty®

Fender® Hello Kitty®

Something different.

I don't know if it rocks...? What would Hendrix think?

Well, if it gets more girls to play guitar...

Wonder if Fender has a "Hello Kitty" bass?

Mozart's 250th Birthday Today

(Jeez, and I thought I was old...)

Wolfgang Mozart, the young genius who brought us "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" among other good tunes.

The movie "Amadeus" is a must-see.

Some nifty Mozart links:

From NPR - lots of Mozart celebration goodies... http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5164428

The Mozart Project - pretty much the ultimate Mozart website -

PS: Sorry about mentioning the new music graphics twice - guess I was more up-to-date with my posting than I remembered. (It's been a long, hard day....)

Duty and Honor, in 24 Notes - Los Angeles Times

Duty and Honor, in 24 Notes - Los Angeles Times

This gentleman is being kept very busy as a volunteer bugler at veterans' funerals. He hated seeing mechanical bugles and recorded music being used as taps for these vets. Good for him.

New CafePress Promo & New Music Graphics

Made some new tuba and "melody" (aka Notes & Staff) graphics today, including a few nice black T-Shirts.

Find the new graphics and black shirts @ Black Music Shirts including Musical Instrument Black Shirts

Also... in the "regular" tuba sections

There are white, blue, and pink versions of the "melody" (aka Notes & Staff) graphic on black T-Shirts. There are white and "silver" (light gray) tubas on both black T-Shirts and on a variety of "not-black" merchandise, meaning most of what CafePress offers. Only the "silver" (light gray) tuba is on the "not-black" merchandise (as the white one would not even be possible).

I have done just about all I can do with that tuba graphic - what I really need now is a sousaphone. : )

The new CafePress promotion?

$2 off $20 Order - Coupon code: JAN2
$5 off $40 Order - Coupon code: JAN5

This promotion is January 10 - January 19.

Yes, this is about the loooooong (is 639 years long enough for you?) John Cage organ concert.
