Merry Christmas from the 2 Newest Internet Music Sensations - English Raven & The Bright Lights + Dave's Disco Divas

Merry Christmas PLN!!

The holiday season is upon us once again and it's time to send out those Christmas cards. You may have already seen the first one I made on English Raven's blog featuring the (un)lucky Cecilia Coelho (drums), Michelle Worgan (bass), Mike Harrison (rythym guitar) along with the Raven himself on vocals and me grimacing my way through all those riffs.


Season's Greetings from English Raven and the ELT Bright Lights Band! from Jason Renshaw on Vimeo.

Apologies to those Bright Lights who didn't make the band but this only works with profile pics that are clear, straight-at-the-camera mugshots. Alternatively, you may breathe a sigh of relief that yours was not suitable for JibJab purposes! ;)

Of course, the parallels between the worlds of rock n'roll and ELT are obvious: 'touring' around foriegn countries and 'performing' to an expectant audience; using everyday live as an inspiration for writing songs/materials; the desire to experiment and go in a new direction pitted against the label/publisher's demands for a 4 minute/page made for radio/a unit piece of work; alcohol abuse; the wish to go back to basics and try something more 'unplugged'....

Well, I took a new musical direction for a second card, ditching the rocker perm in favour of a disco afro! This time, the victims are 4 of my favourite gals from my PLN with lovely, easy-to-manipulate profile pics - Shelly Terrell, Burcu Akyol, Vicky Loras and Greta Sandler:

The guys should be thankful I'm not a premium member and therefore couldn't access the Christmas Chippendales card! :p In the cards or not, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Enjoy the festive season :)
