Interview with Tim Russ

TV Interview!

Veteran Actor Tim Russ

Interview with Tim Russ of “Star Trek: Voyager,” “iCarly” and many other TV shows and movies by Suzanne 6/30/20

This interview was one that I actually sought out, which is rare for me. I usually get invited to interviews via email, but lately I’ve been more pro-active and have been emailing PR reps to ask for interviews. I received an email from a new upcoming channel called The Atomic Channel. A lot of it was about Nichelle¬† Nichols (ex-Uhura, original Star Trek), and her work for NASA. Tim Russ was mentioned, too, as hosting a new show for the channel. So I asked them if I could interview either actor. Unfortunately, Nichols has a health condition that prohibits her from doing interviews.¬† They told me that I would have to contact Tim Russ directly.¬† I thought, “Oh, is it that easy?” Apparently it was. I found his website and emailed him.¬† He very kindly replied, and we set up the interview.

Make no mistake, this man is very busy, so it was very nice of him to take time out to let me interview him. He has quite a few movies and shows coming out, not the least of which is the upcoming “Where’s My Jetpack?” on the Atomic Channel, which they haven’t started filming yet.¬† He also has a band and a family. You will hear all about it here. I informed him upfront that I was not going to ask him a lot of “Star Trek: Voyager” questions because this site pretty much covered everything I could have possibly asked in their interview with him last week.¬† I enjoyed talking to him about the future, social media, music, his daughter, astronomy and more.¬† He’s a very cool guy. Perhaps the coolest person I’ve ever talked to.

Here is the audio version of it.

Suzanne: Growing up, you moved around a lot. How did that impact you?

Tim: Well, it probably led to my choosing this as a career because there was a lot of insecurity in terms of not knowing where you were going to be year after year. Not knowing if and when you were going to move. If you made friends, you’re only with them for a short period of time. That’s very typical to the kind of lifestyle there is in terms of working in film, television or theater, the same kind of thing.

Suzanne: Sure.

Tim: There’s a lot of uncertainty. There’s getting close to people for a period of time, and then not seeing them again after that, going our separate ways. And I think having to adapt to different situations in different places also, I think it lends itself to that sort of lifestyle, which is you’re not sure what’s going to happen next. It doesn’t bother me that much. It had an effect that was [inaudible 00:01:21] probably beneficial for my pursuing a-

Suzanne: Well, that’s good.

Tim: An acting career.

Suzanne: That’s good. When did you get interested in acting?

Tim: I was 16, in high school. I took an acting class a few times. I really liked it, really enjoyed it. Then I did a couple of musical plays in high school, same time. I got a really big kick out of that as well. So I decided to go and study it in college.

Suzanne: Great.

Tim: It was as early as I was 16. I think I was 16 or so.

Suzanne: Do you remember what musicals you did in high school?

Tim: I did West Side Story and You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown. I did those two. I also play music. I started playing music when I was about 15, as well. I was playing guitar. I was performing in bands during that same time. So, I mean, I got started in all of that stuff roughly at the same age.

Suzanne: Sure. Yeah. I was in high school musicals. West Side Story is actually my favorite musical. So-

Tim: That’s good.

Suzanne: That’s a great one. I saw that you did some graduate theater work at Illinois State University. Did you graduate there?

Tim: No. I went to Austin, Texas. [inaudible 00:02:30] University, four year school. Bachelor’s degree down there. Then I went and did some postgraduate work in Illinois State University, on a scholarship. I didn’t stay there more than a year, about a half. Then I came back home. I didn’t get a Master’s degree. I just stayed there for a short time and came back home.

Suzanne: Okay. I got you. My husband’s a professor and we’ve moved a lot. We were there two years at Illinois State, so that’s why I asked.

Tim: Oh, okay. Yeah. It was all right. I did a show when I was there. I did a play and then the rest of it was just classroom work, mostly. It wasn’t as fulfilling as it was in Austin when I was pursuing my Bachelor’s degree. That was a much better college because it was a lot of hands on.

Suzanne: Right.

Tim: [inaudible 00:03:18] University is not so much hands. There’s a lot more theory and class work. It was all right but I wasn’t that interested in doing it. So, I could have possibly stayed longer and done… I would have had to put in another semester or a year, something like that to try to get that degree but I don’t know. At the time, I didn’t feel it was necessary.

Suzanne: Well, I had no idea that so many famous actors went through there. It’s amazing.

Tim: Yeah. There’s a few that have gone through there. Looking at it from the timing standpoint, it might’ve been… if I hadn’t left when I did and then moved to Los Angeles when I did, I don’t know if my career path would’ve been the same. I might have missed the career path. It’s very possible that I would not have done what I’ve done now. I don’t know how it would have turned out. That would have been an alternative universe for the story because I have no idea if that would have hurt me or helped me staying longer there then moving to California and maybe not moving to Los Angeles when I did it. I don’t know. I don’t know how it would have worked out.

Suzanne: It’s hard to look back on all your choices in life and try to second guess them because you just don’t know what would have happened, right?

Tim: It’s impossible.

Suzanne: Yeah.

Tim: It’s impossible to do other than looking back. Yeah.

Suzanne: Yeah. Now, you’ve had a long career in many types of shows and movies from sci fi to comedy to soap operas. Do you have a favorite genre?

Tim: It depends on the circumstance. I like doing sitcoms because you have, in many cases, a live audience. They’re a lot more exciting and thrilling, adrenaline pumping than doing… and its immediate feedback [inaudible 00:05:21] stage than doing straight film and television in terms of single camera. So, the genre doesn’t really matter that much other than I would enjoy doing, period pieces or, in terms of films, action pieces in terms of films, things like that would be a lot of fun. They’re a lot more of a challenge to me. In that regard, I have enjoyed doing those types of projects. Sci fi is fine. It’s interesting. It could be fun and kind of challenge as well, as the genre for a type of film to work on. In those respects, yes. Film, television, if it was standard stuff, it would be action and sci fi, period pieces. And if it was comedy, sitcoms would be great or television as well for those students. Stage is always fun just because, why? I would enjoy doing those genre in the [inaudible 00:06:25] that they’re in.

Suzanne: Is there any type that you haven’t done yet that you would like to do?

Tim: I haven’t done a lot of period stuff and that’s what I would like to do. I haven’t done hardly any period pieces. Most of them have been contemporary or science fiction feature pieces, but not in the past, half period pieces. I would love to do something like that. Have not have a chance to do too many. I’ve done maybe one or two.

Suzanne: Well, I think you’d probably have to move to England to do something like… They seem to do a lot of those over there.

Tim: That’s entirely possible. That is entirely possible. I’ve done a Western, which was a kick. I’ve done… Let’s see, late 1800s. I’ve done a couple of pieces in the late 1800s that were pretty interesting, that were different, but literally only a couple. Not many more.

Suzanne: Tell us about the show, Where’s My Jetpack?, on the new Atomic TV channel.

Tim: Well, I haven’t done that show yet.

Suzanne: Oh okay.

Tim: It’s on the slate of stuff that they want to do on that screening thing that they’re putting together. I have not done that. I haven’t spoken to them in a long time about how that’s going to be. It’s going to be some kind of TV talk show format, and it’s going to be a show based on futurism. Based on where the future might lead us, what we might have in the future, where it might go and what we have now compared to what was projected, decades ago.

Suzanne: Cool.

Tim: That’s the concept of that show. We haven’t actually filmed or taped any of that yet.

Suzanne: Okay. I wasn’t sure from the description of whether it was going to be a regular thing or it was a one time thing, so it’s going to be a regular thing?

Tim: I think it’s supposed to be a regular thing, semi-regular. I don’t know how many episodes they’re going to do. [inaudible 00:08:29] having different guests on every time they do it and it might be once a month or something like that, that they actually put a show together and put it on. That’s probably what the schedule will be, once a month. Then they’ll run that for a while and then do the next one and run that one. Or it might be every two weeks. I have no idea because they haven’t actually gone into production on that yet.

Suzanne: Right. Well maybe they’re waiting to see what happens with the whole pandemic.

Tim: Yeah. Yeah. There is that isn’t there? Really nagging and annoying pandemic.

Suzanne: Yeah, I follow you on Twitter. So I see all your tweets.

Tim: Do you?

Suzanne: You’re active on there.

Tim: They come in waves. I think there was a wave last night and this morning. Yeah. I don’t know. That’s kind of been my outlet here of late, rather than trying to do a podcast or anything like that. People keep wanting me to do podcasts and [inaudible 00:09:41]. That’s seems like a lot of work to do all that. I almost want to say to myself, “Who cares?” I rant about whatever it might be, the subject. Who’s going to care whether I got that going on or not. I mean, it’s just setting up a microphone and blabbing for half an hour, about whatever. I just don’t see that as being that big a deal. Whereas, the Twitter, I can just put those out in the soundbites and pretty quick and I can post things that people have sent to me, just pass them along. That’s cool, relevant. I do that. I think it’s an important forum. I mean, we were discussing the most important issues in the country.

Suzanne: Right.

Tim: Via tweet, now. I mean, they’re [inaudible 00:10:38] via somebody tweeting, including the leader of the country who is using that forum. I mean, that’s never been done before, along with a myriad of other things that haven’t been done before. So, if everybody’s wanting to be on board and do it, since I started using it, there’s been quite a response in terms of followers. I was not aware that would happen, but apparently it has.

Suzanne: Oh yeah.

Tim: Yeah, yeah. It shouldn’t matter whether or not I worked on a television show or whatever I’m into business. It shouldn’t matter.

Suzanne: Right.

Tim: What I post on their in terms of that. It generally isn’t that. I don’t usually talk about anything that has to do with Trek. It’s usually politics and social issues that are happening and anyone should be on top of and aware of and tuned into what is happening.

Suzanne: Well, probably people read what you say and they decide whether they want to keep all… if they’re just interested in Star Trek, they’re probably not going to keep reading what you say. You probably have gotten people more interested in the subject.

Tim: Yeah. I’m thinking it’s the case. I still get a lot of Trek stuff on there. People respond with Trek stuff, which is fine. I don’t mind that. It’s just, if they’re also getting a dose of what’s happening and what’s going on and becoming aware of, and maybe even passing that information on and talking to other people about it, getting a discussion going. Even if it’s just getting a discussion going, that’s a good thing. Just to get people to show that they’re aware of it. I’m not talking about… I don’t tweet about sports. I don’t tweet about the Kardashians. Tweeting about stuff that’s actually really relevant and important. If people can get on board with that because, if they’re asleep and one day they wake up and they don’t recognize anything and it’s going to be too late by that time to be aware of stuff.

Suzanne: Now, have you… I forgot what I was going to say. Oh, sorry, I lost my train here. You had a lot of interest in astronomy. Are you still doing that?

Tim: Absolutely. I post stuff on Twitter. I post the images that I take on Twitter and on Instagram and Facebook as well. I’ve been doing it for 35 years. I own about seven or eight telephones. I’m actually an ambassador for one right now. Sort of a rep for a brand new one, that I’ve been imaging with, lately. It’s Unistellar EVscope combination, their name. It’s really a nice piece unique to the astronomy in that it sort of merges across the line between an optical telescope, one that you could look at through the naked eye and see objects and a camera. You’re basically combining both of those elements into one piece where you can still look at the object through the eye piece. Yet, you can also image and download the object that you’re looking at to be able to send it to other people so they can see it as well-

Suzanne: Oh, that’s nice.

Tim: Outside of the telescope. That’s what that’s for. It’s pretty cool piece.

Suzanne: Do you post those on Instagram, the photos?

Tim: Oh yes. I post the photos on Instagram and Twitter. Go on my Twitter feed, they’re all on there. Have I don’t know-

Suzanne: Okay. I have to go look there.

Tim: Seven, eight, 10 on there. I just posted some recently. As a matter of fact, last week I posted some more. So yeah, they’re on there and it’s a really sweet piece of equipment. I use the other ones as well. They’re optical. I look at planets, the moon and all that kind of stuff. I’ve been doing it for, I guess, up to 35 years. I know it’s been past 35.

Suzanne: There seems to be a renewed interest now in space travel. Do you think we’ll ever move to other planets or travel the stars?

Tim: Yeah. We will eventually do all of that. We’ve covered this globe by exploration and also by migration. As a species, I think we’re destined to do the same thing in space. We will evolve physiologically. We will develop technologies that will allow us to make that transition. That’s a tough transition because we’re not designed for space. Not by any means are we designed for space. It’s been one of the most hostile environments you can imagine. We will have to adapt. That’s what we’re really good at. We will adapt our environment space and we will adapt ourselves physiologically in space, as well.
We will eventually, genetically evolve to a point where we can survive or live on another world, perhaps breathing another type of atmosphere perhaps, and dealing with a lower gravity and things like that. We will eventually evolve to the point of where we can live anywhere. Space travel will… It’s already started. It’s not going to be any stopping it. It’s going to happen.

Suzanne: Good.

Tim: So, yeah. It’ll be fascinating to see it starting and really getting going in my lifetime. [inaudible 00:16:37] and my daughter certainly witness the changes and things like that. Yeah. It’s going to happen.

Suzanne: That’s good. I like that positive Star Trek type of vision for the future, rather than so many… there’s so many negative ones out there, now. I guess, because so many bad things are happening in real life.

Tim: Yeah. Yeah. Well, being earthbound is, that’s another challenge in itself. What remains of earth, people who are [inaudible 00:17:04] and staying on earth is going to require revolutionary, heavy lifting as well. We have to figure out how we’re going to deal with ever increasing population and depleting resources and the waste generated and the effects on climate, et cetera. We’re going to have to deal with our home planet, almost in the same way. We will be dealing with our gene cells genetically and modifying ourselves, genetically. We will be eradicating disease. We will be not having to suffer pandemics. We will be resistant to all kinds of things. We’re doing it with plants, now. We’re going to be doing it with people as we go along. Injuries and recovery from this and fixing physical issues, occurring.
It’s all going to change. That I think is positive. It’s very positive, but at the same time, we have to deal with the size of our population and the food and water that we have to keep everyone alive. And also, the whatever quality of living there may be for 8 billion plus, whatever comes out to be people. That’s-

Suzanne: Right.

Tim: That’s the challenge that we have here on earth. We will have to apply the same technology, the same type of innovation and invention by those brilliant minds to come, that will have to deal with solving those problems and those issues in a collective effort by nations and nations leaders to put the priority of humankind and people, families first over everything else. Material wealth, for example. [crosstalk 00:18:53].

Suzanne: Well, I sure hope that does happen.

Tim: Yeah. That’s where we’re going to have to head.

Suzanne: You mentioned your daughter. I know she’s acting as well. Did she get your love for astronomy?

Tim: Does she what now?

Suzanne: Did she picked up your astronomy interest?

Tim: Oh, well, did you say is she interested in Astronomy? Or did you say is she interested in the career? I missed the last part.

Suzanne: No, I said, I know she’s acting. Is she also doing astronomy? Does she have that interest?

Tim: Oh no, no. She doesn’t have that bug right now. She’s much more into, let’s see, her boyfriend dancing and singing and acting. She’s much more into that, than she is Astronomy. She’s still a young one and has not really picked up any outside hobbies, really.

Suzanne: She’s a singer like you though?

Tim: What’s that?

Suzanne: She’s a singer like you?

Tim: Yes, she does sing. Yeah, she does sing. She’s got a couple of recordings that are on iTunes right now and she’s still pursues it from time to time. It depends on the job or gig that might come up. She has done a number of musical plays and shows and things, and she’s a really good dancer. She actually choreographed hip hop performances with a dance crew that she has. She trying to stay up on all of that right now.

Suzanne: Oh, great.

Tim: Yeah. She’s still interested in all that.

Suzanne: That’s cool. I noticed that your singing voice is very different from your speaking voice. It’s a little more raspy. Who were your influences in singing?

Tim: Well, there are a number of influences because I’ve been listening to music for 45, 50 years.

Suzanne: Sure.

Tim: It’s been everything from back in the day with some of the super groups that existed. Fantana, Sly And The Family Stone, the rock group, Chicago, things like that. And then moving on it to, I’d say a little bit of Bruce Hornsby, Peter Gabriel. There’s been a lot of singers and bands I’ve really been influenced by. Some RnB groups and things like that. There’s stuff that I have recorded and that I did perform live is quite a variety of material. I used to… I’ve played everything from hard rock, back in the 60s and 70s, to RnB [inaudible 00:21:32] 70s. Into pop in general, top 40, which encompasses a lot of stuff. Into folk, music, guitar, acoustic guitar, solo vocal did that for a long time.
And then back into top 40 and alternative and, kind of, what I’m doing now, which is sort of classic rock. There’s old school roots music, moves and things like that-

Suzanne: Yeah, I was going-

Tim: I’ve [crosstalk 00:22:00] the entire gamut. My voice has sort of matured and sort of evolved into having a range of different styles. I use that range. So yeah, I’ll get… some of the stuff might be a little bluesy, and a little bit more gravel range. And then I can turn around and sing, Keb Mo or Eagle Eye Cherry or something in the next minute.

Suzanne: Okay, great. Yeah. I only listened to a few on your YouTube channel and it was very bluesy.

Tim: Yeah. There’s some of the stuff that’s blues based on there. On iTunes, I’ve got a wider variety of stuff on that, as far as all those songs go. There’s a whole big range of things on there. The stuff on YouTube is probably the band demo. I don’t know which one you heard. I think it might have been the live band demo. I’ve got maybe one or two of those on there. [crosstalk 00:00:23:00].

Suzanne: One was a recording. I think you were by yourself on the other one, but I’m not sure.

Tim: Yeah. I’ve got two music videos on there. One is called, We. The other one is called, Lead Me Home. And-

Suzanne: That’s the one, yeah.

Tim: They’re pretty different. Yeah. Lead Me Home. And then there’s one called We, which is more, I want to say 80s, techno pop. Completely, day and night different, from Lead Me Home, the one you listened to. [crosstalk 00:23:25] that’s on there is called, We.

Suzanne: I’ll have to check that out.

Tim: If you listen to that, you will see the difference. And then I’ve got band demos my band live band demos. Tim Russ crew are also on there. That’ll give you a smattering of the live performance and the difference between all the songs.

Suzanne: Okay. It sounds like you have quite a range. I understand because I’m a singer too. I do all kinds of stuff.

Tim: Oh, are you?

Suzanne: Yeah. I mean, I’m about five years younger than you are. I know a lot of the same kind of music. I had a band briefly, but we live in a small town now, so there’s not much of a musical presence here.

Tim: Yeah?

Suzanne: So when we move-

Tim: You sing? What style did you sing?

Suzanne: Well, I like oldies, rock and pop from the 60s and 70s, little bit of 80s. That’s pretty much… but I’ve done musicals and stuff like that. I took voice lessons.

Tim: Is it more rock? Or is it more [crosstalk 00:24:21].

Suzanne: I used to be a music major, and I took classical training, and I did that kind of music, and I was really into musicals. Then I got into karaoke, where it’s mostly pop and rock. I did that for many years and I still do that quite a bit when I can go out. Then lately, I’ve been taking lessons again and I’ve been focusing more on musicals. So it just depends on my mood. Just like you, different styles. (I forgot to mention that I was also in a band, briefly)

Tim: That’s cool.

Suzanne: Yeah. It’s fun.

Tim: The band stuff is always fun. Fronting a band is always fun. To me it’s always been a question more of choosing the right songs rather than how well it’s been or didn’t sing. I did more just getting the right tune that seems to work with audiences on a regular basis, or that seems to work with the band.

Suzanne: Right.

Tim: That’s been my experience more so than whether I liked it a whole hell of a lot or whether it was popular or on unknown or whatever. I tend to pick songs that are not that well known because I like to rearrange and do my own stuff with them. I don’t write that much of my own material because I’m personally not always in touch with all the stuff I’ve written. So I don’t usually perform it. I’d rather perform really good songs period.

Suzanne: Sure.

Tim: Good meaning, they work with me and they work with the band and they also work with the audience.

Suzanne: Right, right.

Tim: Play attractive and appropriate to the instrumentation that you have also in the setting that you have. I mean, to stand there and pound the ground and scream and holler some song out there that’s just mostly noise and not a lot of vocals, it waste of time.

Suzanne: Exactly.

Tim: My band is vocally driven. The songs have to have meaning. The lyrics got to mean something. They got to have something going on. The types of songs, the [inaudible 00:26:32] have to be a variety of stuff. My thing is about the variety.

Suzanne: That’s good.

Tim: If you listen to a 45 minute set, you’ve heard 12 different groups and 12 different types of songs, all in the same genre, same ballpark based on the instrumentation that I have. But, I want to say tasty. I want to say that they’re not going to give you a headache. It’s not some bracket or noise that I’m going to play just because I wrote it. I don’t give a rat’s ass if I wrote it, man. I just care about whether it’s a good song, man. Then, if nobody responds to the tune when I play it at three or four different gigs, then I’m going to cut it. I mean-

Suzanne: That’s good.

Tim: If I don’t get the feedback, if I don’t get a reaction from it, [inaudible 00:27:19]. If you don’t feel that coming back to you, then it’s no good. It’s just not working. I’ll dump it. To me, it’s just about, whether the track has to be right. The song has to be right. The setting you’re playing in has to be just right. Otherwise, it’s just a waste of time. A lot of people make that mistake. It’s not picking the right tune.

Suzanne: I think you’re right. I think too many bands pick, “Oh, this is easy. Let’s do that,” rather than trying to get something better.

Tim: Yeah. Yeah. The song, the tune, the song’s only got a couple of changes in it or whatever it might be. And that’s fine. It’s just that what the song is. Is it a track that works with your band? Works with your vocals? Works with the band and works with the audience and the shedding and the instrumentation that you have? If it works like that, it could be simple or it could be complicated as long as it works. I was doing one not long ago, trying to get this damn tune. I kept trying it and trying it and trying it. It had a few changes in it. It was not as simplest song in the world, but it was just not working.

Suzanne: All right. Sometimes, yeah.

Tim: It just didn’t work. It just never coalesced really.

Suzanne: Well. You never know. You come back to it later, in a few years, you might decide you like it.

Tim: No. I’ll just dump it and get something else. I’ll just replace it with something new, something different. I’ll grab something right off Shazam, if it’s a great tune. I’m going to go grab that and did that one. Nobody’s ever heard of it, but it’s a good track. Let me run that down.

Suzanne: Sure. Why not?

Tim: Not too many super popular. I don’t do super, super from… I don’t do classic pop tunes that much. Maybe a couple of them here and there, but not… well, some that are just way too popular to play live. You just don’t want to do that. Let them beat me to the ground [inaudible 00:29:18]. So I don’t tend to do that.

Suzanne: I understand I could go the rest of my life without hearing, Mustang Sally, from a band ever again.

Tim: Yeah. Wouldn’t that be something, right? Mustang Sally.

Suzanne: Oh my gosh.

Tim: Yeah. Like that. Yeah. Old Time Rock And Roll. [inaudible 00:29:32] Old Time Rock And Roll. Yeah. We’re not doing that. That goes into the wedding bands, in a pile somewhere.

Suzanne: There you go.

Tim: That’s where that belongs.

Suzanne: All right, well, I think I’ve taken up enough of your time and I really appreciate it.

Tim: Thank you very much. No worries. I’m glad you got some stuff for that. Is this going to be an article that you’re doing or?

Suzanne: Yes. Yes.

Tim: All right. Cool.

Suzanne: Well, I do interviews and TV actors. I’ve been doing it for about 15 years and I was taking classes for a few years and I graduated again. I’ve been trying to get more interviews to try to, yeah.

Tim: Very cool.

Suzanne: It’s fun.

Tim: You say the class is in Journalism? Is that what it was?

Suzanne: Yes. They were mass comm, mass media courses and I graduated-

Tim: Mass comm. Mass media. There’s a lot of mass media out there now.

Suzanne: Oh, there sure is. So-

Tim: It is a smorgasbord. It’s a free for all. That’s what it is.

Suzanne: It’s hard to get heard, even though my site’s been around since, before the turn of the century, as they say.

Tim: Yeah. Well, there’s been people writing stories about stuff that’s happening since the [inaudible 00:30:53] play tablets. The Symarians. I mean, that’s been written down since that long ago and I think they just found some [inaudible 00:31:05] that’s even older than that by a couple of thousand years. Anyway, that’s cool. That’s what it is now. All at our fingertips. We just pull it up.

Suzanne: That’s right. That’s right. Well, I appreciate it. I will send you a link when it comes out. If you could send me links to you and your daughter’s iTunes songs, that would be great.

Tim: Oh yeah. Shoot. Let me figure that out. I think they’re on… I don’t know if I have them on, they’re not going to be on the channel because I don’t have… you have to have a picture with one of the songs. The other one, she had a music video for, with a friend. This was a while back. I’ll send the one I recorded with her in the studio, then. This was a while ago. Her voice has changed since then.

Suzanne: Sure.

Tim: The other one after that she did, and she did it, a friend of hers in a studio, which is one of a dance pop tune. It’s not that great in my opinion. Somebody else wrote it and she recorded it. I said, “Ah, whatever.” I paid for the music video, to get it done but it’s kind of a bubble gum pop track. I think I’ll send Mystery to you. That’s like a regular song. It would be something for Disney radio. Disney radio, pop radio station, wherever they have. It would be something suitable for that or something. I’ll do that. That’ll be probably just, I’ll just send the link to whatever. I’ll send the track to you.

Suzanne: Okay, whichever works.

Tim: You can check the video out called, We, on YouTube, that’s on my channel. You can see the difference between the songs. That one is mine. We, is mine. Lead Me Home, is not. Lead Me Home is somebody else.

Suzanne: Well, thank you.
