Summer is here. Ayahhhh! I'm sitting in my office on the 3rd floor of my humble abode, somewhere in Lexington, MA. It's so %(@^&$@!& hot up here. I think I'm hallucinating. Keep Cool....
**** I need your help! I'm going to be moving over to a professional email host. I've been mailing all of these newsletters I send to you from my home email program. It's become unwieldy. With the pro system, I'll have better delivery (less rejections) and I'll be able to keep track of everything.

So, over the next few days/weeks/months I'll be doing this. You will receive an email from the new system asking you to confirm that you want to be on the list. Your choice, of course. You can't be on my list without you confirming/ agreeing to this - those are the new rules that I have to follow. I know I'll lose many of you - probably a huge amount of you. But 'dem are the breaks.

I'll be doing this over the summer. I'll be emailing you my newsletters to you until September and then on to the new system. If you realize, sometime in the fall, that you havn't been getting my stuff, you can go to my website and sign up if you desire (or write me). Otherwise it's been a good run and I'll miss seeing your name on my lists and remembering you. Now on to my gigs.....

new cd coverCD review from The Austin Daze:

Kenny Selcer – Don’t Forget About Me: A total blend of folk, Americana and contemporary sounds. Using instruments as varied as the glockenspiel and lap percussion to the commonplace guitar and drums the production is unconventional and it’s sound reflects that. Selcer produces well-crafted songs with a variety of deliveries that makes the album an unexpected listening experience. (review web page)

radio My tunes from my CD are getting airplay around the country. 60+ Check this out: Kenny's Radio Play - not all listed on this page yet. Call your favorite station and request it. Thanks.

Some random quotes.

Words are a heavy thing...they weigh you down. If birds talked, they couldn't fly.
Sy Rosen and Christian Williams, Northern Exposure, On Your Own, 1992

How is it possible to find meaning in a finite world, given my waist and shirt size?
Woody Allen (1935 - )

Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.
Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

The summit of happiness is reached when a person is ready to be what he is.
Desiderius Erasmus (1466 - 1536)

Ignorant men don't know what good they hold in their hands until they've flung it away.
Sophocles (496 BC - 406 BC)

Get away from the crowd when you can. Keep yourself to yourself, if only for a few hours daily.
Arthur Brisbane

To be always intending to make a new and better life but never to find time to set about it is as to put off eating and drinking and sleeping from one day to the next until you're dead.
Og Mandino (1923 - 1996)

Be not ashamed of thy virtues; honor's a good brooch to wear in a man's hat at all times.
Ben Jonson (1572 - 1637)

Only the hand that erases can write the true thing.
Meister Eckhart

With Epcot Center the Disney corporation has accomplished something I didn't think possible in today's world. They have created a land of make-believe that's worse than regular life.

Know, first, who you are; and then adorn yourself accordingly.
Epictetus (55 AD - 135 AD)

Before you do anything, think. If you do something to try and impress someone, to be loved, accepted or even to get someone's attention, stop and think. So many people are busy trying to create an image, they die in the process.
Salma Hayek

We are more ready to try the untried when what we do is inconsequential. Hence the fact that many inventions had their birth as toys.
Eric Hoffer (1902 - 1983)

My friends are my estate.
Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)

I try to avoid looking backward and keep looking upward.
