Help with creating media release that includes video

Posted on August 21, 2011 at 11:17pm 3 Comments

Here's one for the web savvy folks out there... I am trying to create a media release that I can embed a YouTube video in, that is sent via email. My budget is a big ZERO, so any tips or helpful links that you may have are very welcome. Thanks, TjB

Small portable PA system suggestions

Posted on June 20, 2011 at 2:49pm 4 Comments

I feel that it's in the best interest of my voice that I look into buying a portable PA system in the near future.  After performing two outdoor shows this past week, it was brought to my attention that I am losing the battle with street noise.  Any suggestions for a small portable PA?  I found the Fender Passport 150 on Amazon.  Has anyone used this system?  Thanks for your help, Terrence

Promotional material suggestions?

Posted on May 23, 2011 at 11:55pm 7 Comments

Hello everyone,


As I begin to grow my little puppet company, I wish to eventually offer stickers or postcard pictures of my puppets to the children I perform for.


Does anyone have a sticker printer they are happy with?  How about a 4"x6" postcard printer?  I have used VistaPrint for my business cards, and I am happy with them for now.


Thanks for your help,

Great show Terrence and what fun to do. I have slated myself to do 4 of my 5 Grand Kids school classes (5th isn't there yet). As well as my Mothers assisted living center. So watching you was great. Great focus :)

Thats cool man. I am currently collecting all the old looney tunes i watched growing up. I want my kids to have the humor i did growing up. That will include gumby and woody wood pecker too.
