The Cap Tip Club - note to friends and followers

Dear friends, family, acquaintances, Twitter followers, LinkedIn folk and Facebook and MySpace friends - if I left someone out, you are included.

ShortTermContent at Blogger publishes things that warrant more than a casual tweet or microblog. Thus far I have only dipped my toe in the river of content this model could bring forth.

Clearly the next step is the creation of a Cap Tip Club - a means by which you in your own thinking and travels can ensure that your observations or quotations will be published in a form that will ensure that it is listed in the Search Engines and read by more than a few people. This is not yet a massive traffic destination but I know it has influence because of what I hear here and there - ideas that were launched here that have been "picked up" as it were.

The Cap Tip Club will have a full time editor. That would be me. All it takes is the use of email to inform me of what you want said and your permission to present it in a way that makes sense to me. My typical credit will be a Cap Tip - a tip of my CAP (the acronym means Congregation of All people) - to the author, using whatever designation the author desires. Full name, moniker, whatever.

Just send an email with your suggested piece to and I will take it from there. In time I will add all those who like me are willing to use their actual names online to a Cap Tip Club list that I'll publish so it appears on every page.

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
