Almost fame and fortune - April 11, 2017

In March of 2017 Pie Town Soap was contacted by Hatch TV to
showcase for their panel of judges. The show pitches
goods from creative entrepreneurs to corporate stores and
financiers. They discovered Pie Town Soap while preparing
to shoot a pilot in Phoenix and pushed hard for us to
participate, almost guaranteeing a slot on their show in LA
later this Spring. However..when they sent the contract, things
were not so cool...they wanted us to "sign away all right and trademarks
forever and everywhere" etc etc. So we said..uh.."no thanks'!
But it was nice to be in the running...

"BUFFALO" ON PADDY KEENAN CD - October 19, 2010

Uilleann piper Paddy Keenan from Bothy Band fame is putting together
an album of his travels and is including a track from from my cd,
Blue Apples. Recorded in Charlottesville, VA in 1992, Paddy piped stellarly on a few cuts including "Buffalo" and he will be using that track on his new CD due for release in April 2008.

The Cd will have some of his own material and some live recordings.
There's a track written by Paddy and Steve Morse, guitarist from Dixie Dregs, now lead guitarist with Deep Purple. There's a track with Afel Boucoum nephew of Ali Farkatoure, Mali Africa; a singer guitarist from Japan singing folk song in Japanese, and many more intersting and diverse cuts.

Paddy writes:
"The song Buffalo would fit very well with a piece I wrote in honor of  Chief Black Kettle of the Sand Creek massacre."

New VPK CD, Re-issues and More! - June 30, 2009

Hello Friends and Fans!

I am very excited to offer several new items for sale, a re-issue of
my CD from the Jethro Tull tour (complete with Ian playing flute!)
and more.

I am very excited to offer the following exclusively to my fans:

Item #1 SOMETHING ABOUT DRIVING CD Live from the Jethro Tull tour that I opened in 1999 all over the US and UK. 9 songs and 8 intros (these intros are all great raps,
most of them over 1 minute long relating humorous stories etc) There is a GRAND introduction from Ian Anderson himself, as well as members of Tull backing me up
on a few songs. The CD features the original artwork, 6 panel insert and tray card in jewel box. PRICELESS but you pay only $20!

Item #2 GREATEST HITS CD "MONUMENTAL" I am happy to say I have made the ultimate compilation CD. 15 songs including cuts from Blue Apples, This Guardian at Noon,
one song from Something About Driving, an AWESOME version of "Spider" that I thought was long lost (produced in 1995 by Christian Quick), a live version of "You and Me" from a recent show with Ralf Illenberger that just rocks, a full length version of "Holy Day" from 1997 with harp, synth and flute, AND a brand spankin NEW song never before released entitled
"The Face on Mars". This song was recorded by Billy Moss (of Stevie Nicks fame) and features great bass, sitar and keys..very cool.
YOURS for only $15!

Item #3 JETHRO TULL MEMORABILIA PACKAGE This features a copy of Something About Driving (personally autographed), a very cool Tour Book, handmade and put together from all my photos and memorabilia from the Jethro Tull tour (set lists, journal notes, posters, itinerary etc)
20 pages color and b&w. AND a bonus CD of the original messages that Ian Anderson left on my answering machine in 1998 PLUS a long lost recording of my old band in Virginia doing my favorite Tull song "Inside". The recording features Greg Howard (of Dave Matthews fame) on Chapman Stick and includes some funny banter too. So to re-cap, this mega package contains the LIVE Tull tour CD, The Tull Tour Book, and bonus CD!
PRICELESS but you can have it for $35!

Item #4 A PIECE OF VYKTORIA'S GUITAR! Yep that's right. In order to buy a new guitar, (I rolled over my favorite Takamine with my CAR..TWICE, in the parking lot of a gig in March) I am auctioning off pieces of my old one that got smooshed. This guitar has a RICH history and was my favorite. It played over 2000 shows and has shared the stage with many musical
luminaries. It was at Kerrvillle, Telluride, all over the place from 1994-2009. Imagine this...your
very own chunk of guitar (approx 2x3 inches), handsomely framed with a background of text telling
the history of the guitar. Each one unique and numbered and autographed. A true "piece of art"
and a great conversation piece. There will only be 50 of these available.
TRULY PRICELESS but yours for $25!

Irem #5 THE WHOLE NINE YARDS everything above for the one low price of $65


Fee free to pass this email along to any music lovers and Jethro Tull fans you might know.

ASTROLOGICAL READINGS: Having studied for 12 years and reading
professionally for 7, I offer personalized astrological readings, taped or in person. These are very comprehensive, not a "generic printed astrology profile".
The reading is taped, 90 minutes, and the cost is $150. Email me for more info.

Personalized natal and transit
readings. Inspiring and illuminating,
helping you to better align your life
& goals with your soul’s intent.

Vyktoria's penetrating insights and the ability to communicate in a compassionate and enlightening way, have been a source of inspiration to many. She draws on myth, alchemical symbolism and psychological tools of transformation that honor us as co-creators. She has studied with Liz Greene at the CPA in London and Gavin Carruthers in Sedona AZ.

Free Will is ours with every choice we make. An astrological
reading helps to clarify those choices and our best times and
avenues for maximizing our understanding, success, healing, growth, and bettering our relationships with each other and ourselves.
