Issue #39 — Thursday, June 23, 2022
I’ve updated the Coffee section of Kharlie.com, adding more recipes. Look them over and try them if you like!
A new page has appeared in the Newsletter section of Kharlie.com. It’s called Oo Kingdom Music Posts. The links go to detailed posts on our family site, The Oo Kingdom, and the posts are about my music. There are posts for most years going back to 2005. Many of those pages were recently added to bring The Oo Kingdom up to date.
In addition, there’s a new Pre-Kharlie section inside the Newsletter section; this deals with the early beginnings of my music, up to when I took the stage name Kharlie M (October 4, 2014). The posts are different from the ones on The Oo Kingdom (I can do that, since I manage both sites).
These are interesting and fun to read; they also provide good insight into what makes me tick as a musician (and as a person). Enjoy.
Currently, I’m working on a remake of the Wedding Day album. The original four songs have already been remixed and remastered, but three new tracks will be added. The title will change as well.
Once that is completed, I have enough original songs for three more albums. I’ve played most of these a lot over the years, so you may recognize some of the titles. I have them arranged by category (sort of): some are bright, mostly happy songs; some are darker and sadder; and others are love songs. The tentative track listings appear below.
While I plan to record all of these in the coming months (or couple of years), I’m unsure which to do first… so I’m asking you to help me decide. Please contact me via email, or via Messenger or text if you have that info. Help steer Kharlie M in the right direction!
My wife, Wendi, is now unable to walk more than a few steps; she is basically wheelchair bound. She was approved to get an electric wheelchair, but insurance doesn’t cover a wheelchair accessible van. A friend started a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money toward the purchase of a new van. Please contribute if you can. We’re also exploring additional funding options.
I normally don’t report on other bands’ music anymore, but I’m making an exception here. Prone to Sorrow, the duo of Mackenzie Benish and Victoria Pearl, just dropped their first album entitled Subtle Observations on June 17, and it’s a doozy! They will have it at the Janesville Farmers Market on June 25; you can also download it at Bandcamp. Find the link on their official website, pronetosorrow.com.
