Turn It Off
Back in the days of newspapers,
Media Guru Marshall Mcluhan said
that one slipped into one's morning newspaper
as into a warm bath.
You could read the front page, or skim the headlines,
or just go right to your favourite section.
It was, he said, a relatively "cool" medium.
Now we have much "hotter" mediums bombarding us
relentlessly with factoids, infomercials and come-ons.
It's no wonder that we sometimes just
feel the need to call out over the cacophony:
"Turn It Off!"

This song was produced by
Ross Campbell and Claire Lawrence
Pinewood Studios in Vancouver,
Dave Pickell on the Prophet Five
on Fretless Bass
Kat Hendrikse on Drums.
Edmonton Film Makers
who were also Ross's
in his early swing band
Wrote & Produced a
dynamic music video for
Turn It Off,
which can be seen in the
Video Gallery on this website,
under the title "Turn It Off Again"
In it, they portrayed Ross in three different personas:
1) Computer Ross, who
discovers he can use his digital tools to create
a fantasy world
and simulate rockstar status;
2) Cave Man Ross,
his Alter-Ego & Nemesis
3) 4-yr-old Ross,
played by his son Riel.

TOP FAN CLUB!
Thanks a lot!
