Malachy McCourt on “organized labor” (Author House) by Daniel P Quinn.

“In these times of studied ignorance idiocy illiteracy and strutting ingnoramusses, it’s a relief to read Daniel P Quinn’s adroitly titled ‘organized labor’. Quinn is adept at the written word as he is at the spoken word with all his theatrical ventures. Reading this collection you can almost hear the gentle strains of an operatic aria in the Italian parts and musicality is not absent in the other parts.

A book… rich in content and well worth taking on a short or long trip. “

Isn’t headline “Renew search for extinct Life” an oxymoron if its dead ?

It is light-hearted, complex, and dead serious as well.

I hope you enjoy it.

Mars(zipan) ore not.

Mars to us in 2021.

Isn’t headline

“Renew search

an oxymoron

if its dead ?

They could be Irish too.

Well “they” have our polar caps,

but probably don’t speak Icelandic.

Having been to Iceland briefly

I can vouch for that.

Mars, not so much.

After the brutal, carastrophic scorched Ukraine to rubble, what do you suggest as an alternative ?

Dealing with a meglomaniac and scycophants adds a whole new level to what is going on above and below ground.

If the Russian people knew the TRUTH there would be a new reality to stop the war.

Propaganda mixed with fairy dust from putan the ballet or olde Russia just don’t make it either.

“Organized Labor’ (AuthorHouse.com)

“Organized Labor’ (AuthorHouse.com) by Daniel P. Quinn is a wonderful book of poems. His language is very specific and his images powerful. There are poems that evoke old New York and also poems that address recent issues we face today in the world since 9/11.

Jeritza and Newark a toxic-combination post-mortem.

ArtsPRunlimited, Inc.Former Maria Jeritza estate in serious disrepair in Newark.While giving a tour to a colleague from New York for the Cherry Blossoms, I took a detour to show him the Jeritza estate. It was a mistake a few days ago.The roof of the guest house seems to be imploding. This would be a Historic Landmark disaster for the Forest Hill section of Newark and the Opera community from here to Vienna and The Met.
In conjunction with The Metropolitan new production of DER ROSENKAVALIER they honored Jeritza on the Grand Tier with an exhibit of her costume jewelry as worn on The Met stage. A colleague brought it to my attention only a few years ago so Jeritza is still honored and remembered at The Met.Maria Jeritza was a superstar at the Metropolitan, Vienna, Czech, + LaScala Opera who premiered Opera’s by Puccini, Strauss, + Janacek. Jeritza also loved, lived, and stayed at her home and estate in Newark NJ for 40 years. Let’s not abandon her heritage now.
The New York Times noted in their obituary she was a star of Opera’s Golden Age in the 20th century. She was an Opera Diva, who lived, retired, and died In Newark in 1982 at 94. She attended and supported opera at The Mosque Theatre and Symphony Hall in Newark, NJ. Her appearances would generate instant applause at each performance with her blond hair and blue tinted glasses.Homage to Maria Jeritza, who resided In Newark and made opera andmusic history in Brno, Newark, The Met, Vienna and inspired and worked with Giacomo Puccini, Leos Janacek, and Richard Strauss during her stellar career.MARIA JERITZA, STAR OF OPERA’S ‘GOLDEN AGE,’ DIES AT 94 …www.nytimes.com/1982/…/maria-jeritza-star-of-opera-s-golden-age-dies-at-94 .- Maria Jeritza, the internationally renowned soprano who has beencalled … Miss Jeritza was one of the great artists of opera’s”golden age,” (1887-1982) longtime resident of Newark,NJ who sang for Richard Strauss, Leos Janacek, and Giacomo Puccini:Premiere’s at the Met, Vienna, Brno, LaScala in her illustrious career in Europe and the United States.Richard Strauss wrote 4 Last Songs (and one last song for Maria(Jeritza ) who retired to Newark after her international opera careerfrom Vienna to The Met.Puccini loved Jeritza as his favorite TOSCA.

My Arts career began via Intercultural Studies and Contemporary Arts at Ramapo College where I produced a Classical Concert Series featuring Emmanuel Ax; Fred Sherry; Ursula Oppens and Joyce Mathis when they were Young Concert Artists. Emmanuel Ax had Tea in my kitchen before his recital.Claudio Abbado invited me to spend a season in Milan at LaScala as a guest directing assistant. Later, I was a Guest of Aer Lingus for The Dublin Theatre Festival in Ireland and afterwards directed THE GIGLI CONCERT in Rome (in Italian).More recently, I worked with French Cultural Services honoring the Orchestre de Lyon, France at NJPAC in 2017.

ClydeMay 8Liked by Opera DailyWhat a poorly written and hackish thought, that it is the dominance of male composers that’s behind the portrayal of mothers as villains. Could it be that a maternal villain is simply more interesting and melodramatic given that it is so against the type of the caring and self-sacrificing mother?I agree that most endeavors of the world would be very much improved had women and people of color had the same rights and opportunities as the privileged.2Reply

Ukraine/Prokofiev/Putin/Nevsky:

Alexander Nevsky is the score composed by Sergei Prokofiev for Sergei Eisenstein’s 1938 film Alexander Nevsky. The subject of the film is the 13th century incursion of the knights of the Livonian Order…

I remember 9/11 very well—with the terrifying thought we had been bombed. The sky was eerily quiet and all you could see looking downtown was opaque smoke from Belleville, NJ. The Ukranians are now being bombed again and again. The NO FLY ZONE could be effective. The world shares this burden; but WE MUST move further to stop it as well.

Insightful comments— about the grim persistence of Putin’s shabby reign these past 20 years and still. He has become a malicious figure splaying bullets or bombs in Checynia, Syria, Ukraine as his own Reign of Terror. With all those demonstrations against him and this new war effort, there may be glimmers of reason in Belorussia as we saw last year. When Putin is blood thirsty and in his own irreality…

Excuse me, but having been born in the 1950’s I really had no sense of the Baltic countries, and I had a high school Ukranian classmate who hated the Russians. There was a reference to the Lithuanian armies in BORIS GODUNOV the other night on PBS. From the 18th century that had real resonance today. That former “no-mans” Russian territory still sits between them all. Another tinderbox issue. Putin now revealed as a meglomaniac. Rasputin anyone ?

During WWII, the battle of Kiev in Ukraine, June to Sept. 1941, between Wehrmacht and Russian troops was the largest armored engagement in history.10,000 tanks and support vehicles between the two slugged it out. Russia won.

In a weird way, I think Putin has WAR & PEACE in his head or the Battle on the Ice from Prokofiev’s ALEXANDR NEVSKY !!!

And when that battle was over the Dead were strewn everywhere. Echoed in the profound Aria of lamentation !!!

Christine Conforti to do book signing on 5/6/22 at Uncorked.

“The Legend of the Season, Magic of the Pearls” was inspired by an accidental photo of the Great Falls of Paterson. 

0CC0BCD1-0E3E-405F-9292-2E2A97A4C282.jpeg

A mysterious white splotch appeared in the photo giving rise to the profound story of a heroine who saves the new world from a virus… in Paterson before Paterson was Paterson. 

This story was first published in 2007. 

Christine Conforti founded the Ivanhoe Artists Mosaic Inc in 2006 a not-for-profit arts organization. hosting daily and seasonal events,  and exhibitions in Paterson, New Jersey’s historical Ivanhoe Wheelhouse. Christine developed a substantial following and expanded her work to many locations around her community. She created various classical and experimental theatrical works while simultaneously building a platform for other artists including youth.

In 2013 she created the Teen Arts Lab funded by HUD an arts/history after school program for teens. Christine then shifted focus and became a part of a commission to paint the 75 foot wall facing the Great Falls of Paterson in 2016 and again in 2018. The mural is still there in the Great Falls National and Historical Park. Christine annually curates an art exhibition there during the Great Falls Labor Day Festival and has appeared in various programs throughout the tri-state area.

Many of Christine’s writings were born out of historical facts. The Legend of the Season, developed from a photo taken when the Great Falls were completely dry.

The photo led to the story and the story inspired Christine to paint 26 paintings for this enchanting book. Don’t miss this unique one-of-a-kind experience in storytelling.

In 2021 Magic of the Pearls was ranked #1 Best Selling ebook in 20 categories, in 5 countries. 

For more information call 973-800-9988
