General news Lisa Loeb here, and today is Tuesday June 3!!! My new CD, Camp Lisa is in Barnes and Noble stores today!!
Please, please, please go out and buy a copy for yourself or someone you know. This project really means a lot to me. I went to summer camp and wanted to share that experience with kids who wouldn't normally have the opportunity to go, so a portion of the proceeds goes to the Camp Lisa Foundation, which supports S.C.O.P.E. to help send kids to summer camp. You can help!!

...and by the way, although it's a kids' record, I think you'll like it even if you don't have kids. I want to see all the myspace friends out there heading to Barnes and Noble, or B & N.com to buy a copy, or buy it as a gift for someone.

notes from Lisa: The Very Best of Lisa Loeb, the Singer-Songwriter's First
Posted by: admin on Friday, January 06, 2006 - 10:33 AM
General news

[January 06, 2006]

The Very Best of Lisa Loeb, the Singer-Songwriter's First Retrospective, Spans Her Career from Her #1 Debut ''Stay (I Missed You)'' to ''Single Me Out,'' the Theme to Her New Unscripted Series ''#1 Single''

LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)-- Jan. 6, 2006 -- A dozen years after exploding onto the scene with "Stay (I Missed You)" from the Gen-X movie classic Reality Bites, Lisa Loeb--one of the most recognizable musical artists of the last decade--premieres not only her first "best of" collection but her own unscripted TV series. With E! Entertainment Television's "#1 Single" debuting in January, The Very Best Of Lisa Loeb (Geffen/UMe) will be released January 24, 2006. Heard on both is "Single Me Out," the theme song to the TV series.

Featuring 18 selections, The Very Best Of Lisa Loeb includes all of her hits from five albums from 1995 to 2004, from the orchestral "Furious Rose" to the rocking "Fools Like Me" to the stripped-down acoustic "Sandalwood," as well as the most memorable tracks from her career to date. The literary Loeb also penned the album's liner notes.

After growing up in Dallas, this modern-day Mary Tyler Moore enrolled at Brown University and formed a duo with her roommate. After graduating, she moved to New York and began playing the New York City club circuit to sell-out crowds all over downtown, backed by her group Nine Stories. Friend/fan Ethan Hawke brought her to the attention of Ben Stiller, who was starring in and directing Reality Bites. He added "Stay (I Missed You)" to the soundtrack and the single hit #1. Loeb became the first unsigned artist to ever reach the top spot. "Stay (I Missed You)" was certified gold and earned Loeb a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group, the U.K.'s prestigious Brit Award for Best International Newcomer, and a record deal with Geffen.

Her debut album, 1995's Tails, went gold and Top 30 and spun off the Top 20 hit "Do You Sleep?," "Waiting For Wednesday," "Taffy" and "Sandalwood." "Stay (I Missed You)" was also reprised. Known for her sexy-and-smart girl-next-door persona, accented by her trademark cat-eyed glasses, Loeb created music that touched a new generation. She toured America, opened for Lyle Lovett and appeared at the first-ever Lilith Fair, a celebration of female artists featuring Sarah McLachlan, Patti Smith, Aimee Mann, Emmylou Harris, Tori Amos and others.

1997's Grammy-nominated Firecracker yielded the Top 20 "I Do," "Truthfully," "Let's Forget About It," "Falling In Love" and "How," which debuted on the soundtrack to the summer blockbuster Twister. That year she guested on the Counting Crows' European tour and also starred at the second Lilith Fair.

From 2002's A&M album Cake And Pie, The Very Best Of Lisa Loeb culls "Bring Me Up" and "Underdog." That same year a revamped indie version of the album, titled Hello Lisa, showcased "What Am I Supposed To Say." 2004's Rounder disc The Way It Really Is included "Fools Like Me."

Today, with a "best of" collection, starring in "#1 Single"--about looking for love in the 21st century--touring and working on a new album, Lisa Loeb proves she is here to stay.

General news Locking in on Cannes Film Festival:
Waltham native Robert Locke's Debut Film

The Family Web
to be at famous venue.

By DeAnna Putnam TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER WALTHAM - The banks of the Charles are a long way from the French Riviera, but an independent filmmaker who grew up here will make the leap when he heads for the 53rd Cannes international Film Festival in two to weeks to market his first film, "The Family Web." Robert Locke, 33, has already seen his film achieve status as a Zoie Film finalist for "Best Feature Film" in the people's choice category. Locke and others finished the final edit of "The Family Web" at the end of February. The movie will be ready for theaters in June, he said. Cannes is "basically a schmooze-fest," he said, "If you don't go to Cannes, you're not in the movies. The video will be screened, and I'll go ; there with the trailer and a million business cards. But, I may already have a deal with a distributor back here before I go. " Marketing an independent film can be tough because some companies aren't going to get it. I'll show it to 19-, 20 -year-olds and they love it. Other people don't get it."

When Locke needed to find a band to appear in his film, he picked Big Fat Cadillac, whose style he describes as "heavy, Southern-type rock -n- roll. " Big Fat Cadillac's songwriter Chris Pavao's mother grew up with Locke's mother in Waltham. Locke first got into drama in sixth grade with Waltham Children's Theater. His parents, Martha and Bob Locke, still live in the city, and his mother teaches at Waltham High. After he graduated from high school, Locke went to Central Connecticut State University. "I majored in theater the first two years," he said, "then just switched my major to computer science to have something to fall back on." Locke also minored in math, which allowed Locke, to teach junior high math for a year when he first moved to New York.

The fall after he graduated from college, 21-year-old Locke wanted to give acting a shot. He packed his bags and moved to New York. where he's lived for 12 years. The following Summer, he landed his first job with a minor roll in a film called "Spike of Bensonhurst." The role landed him three days work, one spoken line, and his Screen Actor's Guild Card. Paul Morrissey, one of Andy Warhol's directors back in the 1960s, directed the film. After the film, Locke decided he wanted to concentrate on learning his craft. He started doing theater and said he has acted in more than 30 plays over the years. In 1992, Locke started a theater company when he met director Philip Jackson, who had a theatre space in Queens. "The deal was he had the space, I would do the work." Locke said. "Well, actually, he handled the technical side. I handled getting the actors and setting up auditions." The new production company, August Sun Productions, performed "The Family Web" as a play in the fall of 1994. Locke said he always thought the play would work well as a film, but at first didn't tell anyone. "The play had eight characters and the whole thing took place in their living room," he said. "You have a deadbeat dad, the crazy stalker boyfriend, the younger daughter is confused about her sexuality, and the son is a beer-guzzling member of a band."

Locke calls it a comedy about your average dysfunctional family, but then adds the family, all things considered, is actually doing pretty well. The oldest daughter is a lawyer, the son actually stuck around to help the mother out with the bills, and the youngest daughter just graduated from college. "But it's a wacky family," he said. "They're fighting all the time." . Cast members include Debbie Loeb, the sister of singer Lisa Loeb; model Jason Olive; Anthrax bandmember Frank Bello; actress Allison McDannel ("Another World"), and Trish McGettrick ("Celebrity," and guest appearances in "Law and Order" and "Guiding Ught"). Locke also plays a supporting role. After doing the play, Locke started taking classes on "guerrilla filmmaking" for new, independent film-makers. With what he learned, Locke started thinking about how the play could be reworked for film. He signed a contract in 1997 "with the playwright. Tim Burrows, who then set to work writing the screenplay. "Opening night I'll be crazy when we do it in New York," he said. "We've got bikers - bikers were part of the crowd and some of them have lines. They were regulars at the bar we used - the Caves on Staten Island. It was an old brewery, and they turned all the little rooms into caves." Locke said the film was filmed over eight days and produced for under $200,000. "If you can produce a movie for that, it's like squeezing blood from a stone," he said. But it cost enough that Locke was down to spare change after paying everyone. Once, he even had to sublet his apartment in the city for 12 months to pay to get the film transfers out of the Lab. I've always worked in restaurants," he said. "'When we were doing plays. I was producing theater on my tip money."

E! Lands Loeb for Reality Show

Anthony Crupi

NOVEMBER 15, 2005 -

Lisa Loeb is the latest in a long line of musicians to land her own reality series, as the bespectacled indie folk singer bows #1 Single on E! in January of 2006.

The show, which is projected for eight episodes, follows Loeb as she returns to New York from Los Angeles following her break-up with longtime boyfriend Dweezil Zappa.

Although Loeb says that music remains her primary occupation, #1 Single isn't the first time a cable network has built a series around the singer. Last year, she and Zappa co-hosted the Food Network reality strip Dweezil & Lisa, a single-season series that wasn't renewed after the couple broke off their 6-year relationship.

notes from Lisa: Biography update
Posted by: admin on Tuesday, November 22, 2005 - 04:21 PM
News Lisa Anne Loeb (born 11 March 1968 in Bethesda, Maryland, United States) is a singer-songwriter.

Loeb, who is of Jewish faith, attended The Hockaday School in Dallas, Texas, one of the top rated private boarding schools in the United States. After graduating in 1986, she went to Brown University where she graduated in 1990 with a degree in comparative literature. She is the first and only unsigned artist to have a number one hit on the American charts, with the song Stay (I Missed You), featured on the soundtrack to the movie Reality Bites and later released on her debut album Tails. Her band Nine Stories is named after the J. D. Salinger collection.

Loeb was discovered by actor and friend Ethan Hawke, who lived in an apartment next to her in New York City. Before contributing Stay to Reality Bites, Loeb had developed a following from her acoustic performances in a New York City coffeehouse. Originally a duet act with another woman Elizabeth Mitchell, the albums Liz and Lisa and Liz and Lisa - Days Were Different were released independently, as was a solo project called The Purple Tape.

Though Stay was her break-through song, Loeb has successful radio hits with other songs from Tails including Do You Sleep?, Taffy and Waiting For Wednesday. The song Hurricane was contributed to the soundtrack for the film Twister. Tails was released in 1994 and achieved platinum status.

In 1997 a second album called Firecracker was released. Though critically praised it did not have the commercial success of Tails, though the single I Do was popular on radio and music television. At this point Lisa also dropped her support band Nine Stories. The single Let's Forget About It was also released.

Loeb did not return to studio recording until 2002's Cake and Pie. The album was a commercial failure and did not receive any major backing or promotion from her record label. She was eventually dropped, and she bought the rights to the masters of the songs from that album. It was re-released independently in late 2002 with the songs rearranged and some deletions/additions. New packaging was also featured, and it was retitled Hello Lisa. In 2003 a children's album, called Catch the Moon, was independently released.

Loeb also dabbles in the acting field. Her debut was in a guest appearance on the television show The Nanny in 1997. She played the voice of a newborn baby in The Rugrats Movie in 1998, and in 1999 was featured as a news reporter in the horror film House on Haunted Hill. 2004 will see the release of the film Serial Killing 4 Dummies which featured Loeb in her largest acting role yet. On January 16, 2004, her television show Dweezil & Lisa first aired on Food Network, in which she shared title billing with her then-boyfriend Dweezil Zappa.

She also was featured as the voice of Mary-Jane Watson in the MTV produced animated show Spider-Man.

In 2004, Loeb changed record labels once again, due to a lack of promotion from her former label Artemis Records. She was signed to the independent label Zoe/Rounder, and The Way It Really Is was released August 2004. The album is Loeb's fifth studio recorded album.

When not touring, or doing other promotional work, she resides in Los Angeles.

Lisa's Style
Lisa Loeb is easily recognised by her stylish eye-wear. A role-model for all glasses-wearing gals out there, she is almost always seen wearing her trademark, dark or tortoiseshell framed, sometimes cats-eye shaped spectacles.

In the past she has been known to wear designer clothes to red-carpet events including pieces by "Miss Marple" & "Petro Zillia".
anyways, someone asked lisa on her site what her prescription was. here was the question and her response :

Q: So, what's the prescription on those bad boys? Are we talking legally blind? Would you know a loved one past 5 feet? Does squinting really help myopics or is it just an endearing way to tell us sighted people you have no idea what we're showing you?

A: Squinting does help to a certain extent. Also, making a tiny triangle- 1mm x 1mm with your fingers and looking through it also helps (seriously). My prescription is -4.75 +0.50 x 8 in my right eye, and -5.75 + 0.50 x 24 in my left..
