News Addiction


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!" 




Turn It Off
00:00 / 04:04

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.

If you REALLY like this song, please send Ross a couple of bucks to help fund his next album of Original Music, where your name will be included in the Credits, and you will become a Member of his

 Thanks a lot!
