Sorta. I just received my quarterly BMI report, and it’s always fun to see old works popping up on television shows. It would be nice to know before-hand, so I could actually watch the damn shows, but such is life. Among the new..
BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL (CBS) – Apparently they used one of my old techno/house tracks on July 28, 2004. Nice! I’ll probably never see it, but nice anyway.
JUST A KISS (MOVIE CHANNEL/SHOWTIME) – Used “A Little Bit Of Ecstasy.” I don’t even know what this show or movie is. Time for Google.. “A fateful kiss between a dancer (Marley Shelton) and a director of TV commercials (Ron Eldard) sets off a series of sexual and emotional misunderstandings among a group of young New Yorkers, who are each faced with the classic quandary: ‘To cheat or not to cheat?’ Veteran actor Fisher Stevens directs this Kafkaesque romantic comedy penned by Patrick Breen, (who also appears on-screen in a supporting role) with a cast that includes Kyra Sedgwick, Marisa Tomei and Zoe Caldwell, as well as artful and sensual scenes of rotoscoped animation.” Rated R, Nudity, Mild Violence, Adult Language, Adult Content. Holy shit, Marisa Tomei. Marisa Tomei! Supertopnice! I must buy this.
MELROSE PLACE (SOAPNET/STYLE) – They keep playing the re-runs, I keep collecting checks. Works for me.
NIGHT AT THE ROXBURY (TBS) – Also used “A Little Bit Of Ecstasy” (old news). But the cool thing here is how much it pays when the film is broadcast on cable. Nice nice.
BMI reports are also starting to show activity on local cable and Internet plays. It’s not a ton of money yet, so who knows how accurate the tracking is? But at least it’s there.
Last quarter, I noticed a BET movie called INTIMATE BETRAYAL which had used one of my songs. I bought the DVD. I can’t remember which song they used right this minute because I’m afraid to watch that movie. LOL! But any movie with Marisa Tomei in it, I can watch. Woo hoo! I just found it on Amazon (bad reviews, but who cares?). I might even get in the car and head over to Circuit City..
