"Dijonaise" by RedGoGreen the band

 

We'e been devouring everything our Friend Frank has been throwing our way for almost twenty years now, which is pretty easy since he's a damn fine Pastologist, a purveyor of exceptionally well designed Pizza over at Pizza Time Again, in Niagara Falls, NY. In fact, we say we knew him when he was just the guy from Pizza Time inTonawanda, NY.... but that was four stores ago, and a long time away....

Anyhoo, Frank has a band, RedGoGreen, and they are pretty kickin'. Not really a garage band, more of a group of local musicians who are working to break into a pro venuse while they ply their day-to day wares in their day-to-day jobs. But some things, y'know, are just in your blood, and that's why this song really works for me... I know Frank as a chef... so it makes sense I'd want him to sing a recipe to us all... Enjoy...







 

"Run" by Paloma D'Auria

 

 

We do not know Paloma. We've never met her nor have we heard of her prior to Friday the 13th 2012. But that turned out to be a lucky night for us since we discovered this very talented young artist who won "Best Music" at the FLICKFest at Nichols School film festival.

Sporting a thick mane of hair, an infectious smile and a wicked Ukelele beat, Paloma's music video, which she wrote and sang, stands out not just for the solid lyrics and peppy music, but also for the comfortable and lightly breezy music video that plays nicely into the tune without swamping the message. The whole thing has a confidence that belies it's low-budget and draws you into it with ease.

We hope you will find it as much fun to listen to and to watch as we did

 

 


"A LITTLE OF YOUR HEART"

On Martin Luther King Day parents did just like Judy and I did, got up, had breakfast, said goodbye to their son or daughter who had the day off from school, and went to work. Then they came home and had dinner as a family. 

The parents of Aundria Hudson did NOT have dinner with her again. Aundria, a 17 year old classmate of Colin's was killed in an accident while crossing the road that afternoon. 

On March 4th a benefit concert was assembled at the Tonawanda High School auditorium, run by one of Colin's classmates and featuring a number of his classmates doing musical numbers in honor of Aundria. Colin wrote this song both for her, and also for Hope Fuller, who was very near the end of her time on Earth as well. It's a beautiful song for two very beautiful young women.




"SAVE YOU FROM YOURSELF"

January 13, 2010, Colin rung in the new decade with a song he wrote himself, "Save You From Yourself" at the second "Tonawanda's Got Talent" talent show from Tonawanda High School. This was something of a first for him as you'll see he's backed by classmates Jordan Steiner on drums and Chris Kisiel on Bass. Chris stole first place with a stellar piano composition and Colin nabbed second place with this number. Special honors go to the sound team for the show who this year at least managed to keep the microphone working.

 

 

 


 

WILLY WONKA 2: CHARLIE'S FIRST DAY

In December, 2009 Colin and his pal Jeff Noworyta played the lead roles of Willy Wonka and Charlie Bucket in Willy Wonka Jr. at Tonawanda Middle School, where Jeff was an 8th Grader and Colin was a newly-minted alumni. After weeks of backstage jokes about Willy's true motivations, the pair did a short video speculating on what Charlie's first day as factory owner would be like.

It should be noted that they were working without a script to produce this loony video.  Enjoy!



More recently, Jeff and Colin co-starred as Oliver Twist and Fagin in Tonawanda High School's production of "Oliver!" - See the News page for a special announcement about that production.

 



COLIN'S MUSIC

From time to time TV's Colin likes to belt out a tune on one of his instruments. We like 'em, and we thought you might too.

1) All Along the Watchtower



2) Every Day I Write The Book




TONAWANDA'S GOT TALENT

On June 10th TV's Colin appeared in a year-end talent show for Tonawanda High School. There were many fine acts and a fun time was had by all. Below are a few of Colin's Favorites:

 

1) Caitlin Devlin-Brooks and Ben Streeter performing "Without You" from RENT.

Caitlin and Ben are two very talented people Colin has enjoyed appearing on stage with, and he was very impressed with their beautiful rendition of this song. Their voices mesh marvelously, and Ben's piano playing is very skilled.

TONY BUTTINO

One of the earliest interviews, TV's Colin, then just known as "Colin", was looking for something different for his in-school TV news show. When we had the opportunity we took it, and here is the first interview with a bona fide Emmy winning TV producer, Tony Buttino. Tony co-created the PBS success READING RAINBOW. 'nuff said?

WIVB-TV'S GUEST "WHY-GUY" TRYOUTS

You don't get to be called "TV's Anybody" until you've been broadcast on TV by someone else's hand. So this past November 2006 that's just what happened. Local CBS affiliate WIVB-TV in Buffalo NY was holding open auditions for the soon-to-be-open "Why Guy", their local-color reporter. Many tapes were submitted, but for some odd reason Studio Kaiju holds this clip in highest esteem. Thanks a ton to WIVB-TV for giving us permission to include this clip on our site, and thanks even more for being so generous with TV's Colin.

KAPPA MIKEY PROJECT "STILL SOCKY AFTER ALL THESE YEARS"

TV's Colin entered the "win a part on Kappa Mikey" contest with this cool clip. Not only does he assay the role of "Suave Mikey", but he also plays "Argyle Footworthy", a creation of his, to Dad's "Socky". Sock Puppet theatre!!!! No.... he didn't win. But that doesn't mean he doesn't get to spend time with Mikey Simon himself, Mike Sinterniklaas. Check out more than a few interviews with the man on the "Animation" page.




The talented folks at Animation Collective, the company that makes "Kappa Mikey", generously gave a package consisting of a T-shirt, some postcards and an interactive disc to all the participants in the cameo contest. Here's TV's Colin enjoying his prize.

LUCY-DESI DAYS 2003

The Reboy Family often attends the various festivals in nearby Jamestown, NY celebrating the First Couple of TV Comedy, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. Here is the report Colin filed for his school TV station in 2003. He even participated in a candy-wrapping contest based on the "Job Switching" episode of "I Love Lucy". For comedic effect, he decided to deliberately fall way behind in his duties, which neither Judy nor the third member of their team, a local woman who actually had hopes of winning the contest, knew in advance.
