If I’m Dreaming, Don’t Wake Me
Posted on December 11, 2010 by Incoming Tide
…its 2:30am, I’m wide awake or maybe dreaming, solving the worlds problems, one after another…until about 5:00am. This abnormal process of late, isn’t a mid-life crisis or I’d run to the restroom every hour, its my journey as a Producer. Usually the worlds problems are just my ‘to do list’ for the next day, week or month – I’m not selfish, I tried lowering the unemployment rate.
So its been awhile since my last post, a bit unprofessional so says the social media experts. My answer to them is that I was under intense pressure, managing a restaurant, consulting with other restaurants and analyzing Murphy’s Law. Yes, Murphy’s Law should be top of mind when producing a project, especially as an independent producer, the list multiplies.Read more

Patrons lined up for bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches in downtown New Rochelle are being blasted this morning by chants of "give peace a chance" blaring over the stereo system. At the Starlite II Diner in downtown New Rochelle, owner Michael Dietz is playing all John Lennon music all day and all of the time.
The walls of the tiny diner, a local gathering place for years, are usually lined with Lennon and Beatles memorabilia. Today it's Christmas decorations but Lennon's memory pulses through the restaurant.
Deitz wants more Lennon music so if you are planning on stopping in today bring your favorite Lennon tracks on CD and ask him to spin the disc while you eat.
If you have memories of that tragic day of December 8, 1980 share them here. Where were you that day? How did you hear the news?
