The anti-resolution resolution

It’s just after 11:00 p.m. on January 1st, at least in this time zone. Technically it’s still New Year’s Day, although that is rapidly drawing to a close. I’ve been puttering around the house all day, working on home projects and thinking about how to proceed with the List and with this blog, after a … Read more

A little pause

How good are you at pictograms? Charades, maybe? As you can probably tell from the header above, we’re going to “pause for a minute”. This blog will be on hiatus until later in the summer, so we can work on some projects that are very important to the List. In the meantime… In short, we’re … Read more

Summer schedule

We’re looking forward to the summer months, when we scale back some of our activities and amp up others. So as of this week, we’ll be moving to a bi-weekly publication schedule for Next7, as follows.

Working in the arts, most of us are perpetually … Read more

Who’s confused?

With Southern California experiencing an actual burst of winter (if brief and still mild) and government bodies updating health restrictions with a dizzying yet understandable mixture of hope and caution, no one would blame you if you look like the RCA dog right now. But things are looking up, as you can see from the … Read more

Yes, you need some coaching. (We all do.)

Call it processing. Call it the buddy system. Getting some perspective. Finding a new viewpoint. What you probably already know is that being an artist and performer is hard, and no one should go through that life alone. Whether you need a single session to clarify your goals or lay out some plans, or a … Read more
