The Newest Super Cool Website Thingy…

I am so far behind on blogging I’ll probably never catch up.

Wanted to write about the great JT/Carole King show. Wanted to write about playing with Rick Saturday night. Wanted to write about the clergy retreat show. Wanted to write about Memphis (probably still will…). Wanted to write about the FeastFest show. Wanted to write about getting an email from Robert Lamm (kid you not…).
Wanted to write some other things that completely escaped me now.

It’s all too much to think about. So, for the moment I’ll just write about the coolest new website gadget I’ve found this month…

It’s an iPod mp3 player for my website. And after a lot of work, I’ve finally got it up and running all over the website. The player below now loads when you visit the main page of my site ( But feel free to play around with it here:

I’ve also set up an individual player for several of my soundclips pages: the “Songs for the Time Being” page, the “Return” page, and even the “Connections Band” page.

Pretty cool, huh?

Yes. I actually do get excited about this stuff.

I’m such a geek.
