Museum Piece is a poem I wrote after a break up with a girl back in the 1980s. I put it to music in 2016 and have now added images to make the final product; a video. Best watched on a large screen. Sit back and enjoy this kind of creepy piece in which I narrate as well as play the accordion.
I wrote my AMVIC endorsed training program because I felt that I was not happy with the expensive programs which I was subjected to when I served as an automotive sales representative. I sold two new cars on my first day in that work. Anyway, with a lifetime experience in selling things, and 20 years as a high school teacher, I approached the development of a sales training program from two perspectives; a sales professional and an educator. My program is the most cost effective way to train sales staff and comes with four multiple choice exams, 62 training topics, and an RV supplement. Purchasing this program for a one time cost, over time this exceptional training manual makes the training of sales staff simple and ever less expensive.

My Mermaid From the Sea is a poem I wrote in the 1980s when I went through a poetry writing mania and wrote a whole pile, as I am wont to do, (note my video regarding my adventures in publishing). I wrote the music for it in late 2017 when I began working with Logic Pro X. You can find this piece in Sound Cloud but not illustrated. I made this video this morning. It is May 2 and a snowy day here in Red Deer, Alberta. I guess my mind needed to go to the beach.
In this episode I talk about what happened at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Ancient oak beams do not burn easily according to a video I watched after making this presentation. I watched as someone held a blowtorch to such a beam and it would not catch fire. It smouldered and indeed there was some carbon, but no burning. Hence, that makes the Notre Dame fire even more suspicious.
In this episode I talk about some of the things I have written. I talk about my publishing experiences and run ins with thieves. The primary thief is Wim Meiners who was one of the founders of what was first called, Publish America and became America Star Books. Just over a year ago he and his company disappeared. I was about to order up some books and called my agent, Karen Wuchter but all I got was her answering machine; which is still picking up messages to this very day. Anyway, one day I was poking about on the internet and Googled my name to see what sort of activity was out there. As I scrolled through the pages I came upon a site which listed one of my novels; A Journey to the Underside, as a free pdf download. I checked into this and found a site which you can register in and apparently obtain all of my published books complete with the cover art for free. The book named apparently has over 2000 reviews averaging 4.8 out of 5 and I have not see one red shekel for my work; not for any of it except for some copies I was able to sell when they first came out. A Pirate's Tale is reviewed in a forum in the official website for the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise by the founder of the site who said: 'I don't like books. I don't read books. But, Gertjan Zwiggelaar's, A Pirate's Tale is an awesome book.' I have seen no royalties and yet there are thousands of copies of this book out there. Now I am struggling to just make ends meet and make rent every month and others are making money off my books. Indeed, four of my books where converted to iBooks, Kindle and the Barnes & Noble version and are being sold but I see no commissions. Not even a piece of sea shell from the beach where Wim Meiners may be sojourning on a vacation or Karen, Rachel, or the other one who agented purchases, some of which were never honoured, as well by them. HUGE FRAUD. They left over 70,000 authors in limbo. Out of all of those peoples' books, my novel, Hanzel Sventska is the largest ever produced by that publisher in their history! Not one red cent to the author. People wonder how can it be I am still generally well humoured. If you want to help, please note my PayPal information. Thanks.
In this video I make a strong case for considering people who fluoridate our drinking water are war criminals and must be prosecuted for their crime against humanity. City Councils who support fluoridation of our potable water are criminals, bottom line, who deserve a good hanging for what they have done to us.
I have stacks and stacks of filled sketchbooks. Here are a few for your viewing pleasure. I initially thought I would narrate this piece and even indicated that in the titles. However, after watching the sketches and listening to the horn concerto I figured that was enough. My talking would not have added much.
I apologize for the sound track. It appears some background noise came into the equation. Nothing serious. This truly is my favourite horn concerto. It's in B flat Major. I composed it in 2018.
