my domain name, website, and internet musings

October 26, 2006

at long last….my website is easy to find! to many it may not seem a big deal to have a domain name.  living in the country on dial-up (so much for universal internet accessibility) has been a part of my lack of web presence. i am someone who prefers face-to-face contact in the moment so the integration of internet community into my life is slow. i have conciously followed a somewhat neo-luddite philosophy much of my life (i dry clothes on a line). these are a few of my excuses for not joining the 21st century wholeheartedly.

my favourite excuse though has been this one.  i had such a grotesque computer teacher in grade ten (frequently taking advantage of his position of power, he used every opportunity to lecture our class on how great the corporation of mcdonald’s was). i was eternally turned off of computers. wonder how he views the smash hit movie ’supersize me’ and the first quarterly loss ever by the corp in 2005?

as i navigate a little more of the sometimes beautiful internet highway, i’m glad to see much of its power resides in the hands of the people. let’s keep it that way.

the new site’s beautiful to look at! and i’m keeping it simple for any folks who match my profile above. thanks so much to brett who is leading me through cyberspace this time. thanks too to james trickey for original web design and hosting since 1996 and petr maur who designed the last site after ’stray’ was released in 2001.

I just got your new CD this week and I haven’t stopped listening! It’s full of feeling, evoking emotion and delight. You are an inspirational woman…I love to listen to this music while dancing, driving, and writing.
I’ve previously found deep connection with the chickadee in my life for healing…so I am smiling deep in my heart with that one. And as I’m working on much cleaning (mental, physical, and emotional) “some old things” hit deep…as well as all the others for various reasons.
THANK YOU for believing in yourself and blessing the world with your talent!!!!

Hello Christine and friends,

Just to say that I hosted another Christine Graves concert at my home in Ottawa which attracted about 45 people recently. We had the good luck of having much of Wreckless Daughter featured, plus a sampling of a bunch of other older great songs, like Survival, which get better and more relevant with age.

I highly recommend this format as everybody ends up enjoying themselves. There is also an immediacy to the music, and an intimacy, that makes for truly great muscial appreciation.

PS Encourage people to buy their v. reasonable priced tickets before the day of the concert to ensure a good showing.

Jamie

After I met you last week, I put “Wreckless Daughter” (I bought the CD at Shadowfax about a year ago) on my computer and rediscovered it. Careful craftsmanship gives each song distinct character. Loved it. And good you’re teaching at Musicworks — hope it develops into a musicultural centre.
