Sur­prise, sur­prise! Thanks to NASA astro­naut Clay Ander­son, my Colum­bia CD appar­ent­ly took a lit­tle trip to the Inter­na­tion­al Space Sta­tion, via the space shut­tle Dis­cov­ery mis­sion STS-131.

And The Winner Is…

Do you pay atten­tion to the Gram­my Awards?  I must con­fess: I don’t, not espe­cial­ly.  Sure it’s fun to watch the year­ly fash­ion show, and see the lights and glit­ter and lip-sync­ing played out… and we chuck­le at all the win­ners’ bab­ble, and then laugh at the com­men­tary about the bab­ble, and then at the com­men­tary about all the com­men­tary!  But, when it comes down to it, frankly, most of the time I’m left with the feel­ing of where’s the music?  Where’s the real music?

We post­ed about this video a while back on our news page. Final­ly we’re able to post the clip for you.

This trail­er ver­sion is an excerpt from Bill Judge’s film Micro­Grav­i­ty. It was released through his Bod­hi Leaf Pro­duc­tions com­pa­ny. This doc­u­men­tary looks at the cre­ation of my Colum­bia album, focus­ing on the track enti­tled Micro­grav­i­ty.

Hope you enjoy it!
