3. Rarities & Absurdities

This month:  An unreleased demo of an oft requested, but rarely performed, ballad: 'Little Green Lady'.

An mp3 download of a recorded track selected from among Dean's collection of unreleased musical rarities and re-discovered early recordings' Some stuff no one's ever heard. Some stuff Dean doesn't even remember he wrote. Some works in progress. And some stuff that's so embarrassing Dean won't even release it now! Well, everything but that stuff.





4. Deano's 'Picks'

This month we feature the NY based group, Too Human, a wonderful musical duo consisting of Roger Bruno and Ellen Schwartz, two extremely gifted musicians, who have combine their considerable talents with extraordinary musical results. Lend an ear. You'll be glad you did.





5. Matt's Mindbenders

Check out this month's oh-so-cool, mind-bending cryptic crossword puzzle devised by my pal, the wise and inscrutable, Matthew Lees, puzzle-miester, problem poser and astute figure-it-outer. This month, Matt has devised a clever and funny mixed-up lyric puzzle which uses the songs and lyrics of my third album, 'Rumpled Romeo', as its theme. Oodles of fun!

6. Ask Amelia

Puzzled? Befuddled? Perplexed? Ask Amelia. Even though she's not much more than 12" tall, Amelia's still one of the smartest primates we know plus being the voracious reader that she is, she can pretty much answer any question you may have about any conceivable subject in the universe. Plumbing problems? Ask Amelia. Dating dilemmas? That's Amelia specialty. Trouble filling out your tax forms? Amelia can help. This is one astute monkey. No question, no matter how complex, absurd or pointless, is beyond her scope.





7. Guest Column

I Bet Your Dog Can't Do This!

Once a month, this guest column will provide a forum for the rants and raves or well-reasoned arguments or simple domestic anecdotes of one of our readers or if you see something really cool on the net, like this month, send it to us and we'll share it with the rest of the gang. To contribute something to the Guest Column send it with the words: Guest Column Submission in the subject heading. Spelling and penmanship counts! NOTE: This month's offering is one of the silliest video clips I've ever seen, sent by world-class bike racer, Mihael Ginghina. I have no idea where it came from, originally, but I promise it will make you laugh.





8. Bosom of Suburbia

This month's Episode
"Squirrel Heaven"
Another hilarious episode featuring that rascal, Earl the Squirrel.
Ongoing adventures of a certain hapless singer/songwriter that lives in the suburbs of New York with his family and a small menagerie. Real life!
PLEASE NOTE: This photo-comic-strip has a PG rating, which means
it's not really intended for kids and parental guidance is suggested. Actually,
It's meant for really immature adults, savvy teenagers and extremely precocious
13 year olds. Content may include occasional swearing, drinking, pot-smoking, inter-digitation (that's handholding) and exploding cats. However, no animals were
harmed, or in any danger, during the making of this production - yet.
