Please Come to Starbucks

On the last weekend of “The Vic & Paul Show” this past June, our good friend Robert Mendel was kind enough to videotape the show for three performances at The Push Lounge.

Rob was assisted in this effort by young Daniel Rashid, who manned a second camera on Saturday evening — and Ronny Crawford, who shot second camera on closing night.

I spent a good deal of time in July learning how to use Final Cut Express – and here’s the first fruit of those labors.

This first video installment features one of the show’s musical numbers: a haunting, wistful ballad about true love overcome by the franchising of the American landscape. We’ve all seen what’s happened to the character of our neighborhoods as corporate cookie cutter malls replace the unique charms of local Mom & Pop establishments. This song adds a broken heart to that tragedy.
