O.K... I can almost see the furrowed brows on some of my collectors' faces.

So I have also published the 

"Collector's Edition"

with my traditional white background that will go with the rest of your MOUSIE Girls, although I think it would be perfectly all right to put the new one with the black background with your other MOUSIE Girls if you want to, especially if you already have "Cigar Girl."

The title of the new "All Hallow's Eve New Orleans" is "Turn, Turn, Turn." It is a picture of Persephone, the ancient Greek goddess of Spring, who was once noticed by Hades, the god of the Underworld, who so coveted her youth and beauty and liveliness that he kidnapped her and dragged her off to his Kingdom. Her mother Demeter, the Earth Goddess, caused the earth to go bleak for sorrow because no matter where she sought she couldn't find her lovely daughter. Eventually Zeus made Hades relinquish Persephone and allow her to return to the living, and Demeter made the earth bloom again, but because Persephone had eaten 6 pomegranate seeds while she was in the Underworld, every year at the autumnal equinox she must return again to sit beside Hades as his queen in the Underworld, and the earth goes bleak again until her return in the Spring.
In the new print, Persephone is holding a pomegranate which is cut open to reveal the seeds (which form a subtle peace symbol) and on a small table beside her are the various stages of the pomegranate from bud to flower to fruit. Behind her is a round window that looks out on a New Orleans cemetery, and the quote at the bottom is from Ecclesiastes:
"To every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven."

The song "Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There is a Season)" was adapted from the the Book of Ecclesiastes in the Bible and set to music in the 1950's by Pete Seeger, who added an ending phrase: "I swear it's not too late." It was not until 1962 that he recorded it and released it on his album The Bitter and The Sweet on Columbia Records. It has been covered by many other musicians, most notably by the The Byrds.

The lyrics are taken almost verbatim from the King James version of the Bible (Ecclesiastes 3, verses 1–8)~
1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

 

I swear it's not too late.

Peace and Love,

MOUSIE

You Pay Only for Shipping and Handling!

In January,  2008, I rushed into a recording studio to  get these songs down for copyright purposes. I had spent the past few months working on getting my Mardi Gras 2008 Print finished and published, and really had not been spending any time on my music, so I was out of practice, and the renditions aren't perfect yet, but the songs are "tastefully bawdy" (if there is such a thing!) and lots of fun!  

These are all songs that I wrote at Pensacola Beach last summer, plus one Bonus Song from 1983, accompanied with guitar and ukulele.

Please Note If you are also ordering Prints~ This CD will be shipped in a protective box separately from any Print Order (I can't put it in a tube!) so the $6 for the CD will be applied in addition to the Shipping Fee for the rest of your order.~ Thanks, MOUSIE

       When I started to record this I was really nervous, so I sang an old song that I wrote in the 80's, knowing that I had played it so many thousands of times I could just put it on automatic. It is a very sad song. My wonderful husband, Fritz the Cat, had not appeared yet at that time, perhaps because, as I sang in the song, I didn't know what I'd been looking for, and didn't know if I'd ever find it. Unbelievably, in 1994, after I had sat talking with my sister, Kitty, and my best friend, Saundra, and created a clear and precise description of what I was looking for, Fritz appeared, and he matches the description perfectly! 

       My songwriting has been on the back burner for the past few years, but my new Ukulele and our new circumstances have inspired a passel of new songs, and I'm really excited about getting them out there for people to enjoy! Take advantage of my free offer now, and get a sneak preview of things to come!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

       My most recent song was inspired when I was given the exciting opportunity to be involved with the upcoming Robosapien Movie, a family oriented story reminiscent of the Geppeto and Pinocchio tale. It involves a scientist who has created robots that he thinks will be used for humanitarian purposes, only to discover that his creations are being used for military purposes. His little boy robot ends up lost, broken and confused, living with a little boy who finds and repairs him. 

       I had the delightful experience of doing a cameo appearance of "New Orleans Artist MOUSIE as herself" in the movie, as a Jackson Square artist who draws a caricature of the little boy, played by Bobby Coleman (star of "Martian Child" with John Cusack.) Conceived and produced by Avi Arad (Spiderman, X-Men, Ghost Rider, Fantastic Four...) and directed by Sean McNamara (Bratz, The Cutting Edge: Going for the Gold, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel) the movie is scheduled for release in 2009.
