Once upon a time, Patti and I bought a 1973 Dodge Duster. It was our first car. It was 1987, we were teenagers, and we'd race that car up and down the New York State Thruway, all the while being able to see the asphalt blur by beneath our feet through the rusted-out floorboards.
I bring up that car because when you opened the hood, you could see the engine (a slant-6 for those keeping score at home), the battery, the buckets for anti-freeze and wiper fluid, and the road beneath. That's it. The guts of the car didn't take up the entire space. There was room for doing things like heating up meatball sandwiches as you drove. Nowadays, one opens the hood and one sees nothing but wires and motherboards and plastic and belts and bolts occupying every square millimeter of the compartment. The attempt to create a website now feels that same way. I look, and I'm lost.
I've always had a handle on how to create and maintain a relatively rudimentary website. I'd crack open an html editor, and an application like Adobe FireWorks, and I'd be good to go. Not anymore! Programming and coding has become so critical in the creation and maintenance of a site, that I've just officially tossed my wee hands into the air.
With that in mind, I've transferred my domain name, which I've had since 2001, and I'm hoping for the best with my new hosts, weebly. To this point, it seems quite easy to create and maintain, be it from a laptop or from my iPad or iPhone. I like that a lot. It's clean, which I like as well.
I've set up links for purchasing my discography, including my forthcoming album, The Agreeable Passage of Time (which I can't wait for you to hear), along with space for upcoming shows, and an ephemera page for videos, photos and a slideshow of past concert posters, as people always seem to ask about a gallery for those.
I know what I think... Let me know what you think.
