What’s Going on Around Here


Dear Readers, Listeners and Others,
Here at Listen & Be Heard Weekly we are in a transitional phase between this website you are visiting now, and the transformed one you will be visiting as soon as Allison Pilapil and I can work it out between us. You will find many improvements, not the least of which will be more efficient use of my time…
There has been a bit of a shift in focus as far as content goes as well. I am always searching for writers and reporters, so if you have an interest please do get in touch with me. I am also always inundated with e-mail from arts organizations and artists who want to get the word out about what they are doing. So I have been making an effort to update parts of the site daily or several times a week. You will find fresh content more than once a week that you can subscribe to at the following addresses:
http: //www.listenandbeheard.net/artistsinthenews.htm
http: //www.listenandbeheard.net/auditions.htm
In addition, in the absence of art reviews (art r eviewers please take note that you are needed) I have been posting some of the pics that come in my e-mail weekly at
For movie buffs I have added some headline feeds that will keep you up-to-the-minute on all the latest movie news.
I see that these pages have been getting a lot of hits, so I believe I am moving in a direction that is useful to many of you. That’s it for now folks. Much more later.
