Experiment in Wordie

I tried listing some of my core values that I write about on my blog in "Wordie."

Wordie is a java applet on its home page, that allows you to scramble and colour your words (any) in patterns you choose and randomize.

This is my first crack at it:

My second crack:

New Free Music Site: Live Concerts for Streaming Only

My blogging has been slow with many captures but little follow through.

My funk began with some introspective thinking about Deep Brain Stimulation and the anguish of those who are lifted by it, versus the failure of traditional treatments to help. Depression is an illness not easily lifted once set in.

Speaking of depression, not many have both exogenous and endogenous factors working on them at once SMILE.

For me, I know I turn around stronger for the experience. For others, they don't make it.

For my bloggin interlude, I have facebooked extensively, and will have to take a 12 step program from it, as I am meeting very interesting people and making friends that just are not possible in any other world, virtual or otherwise.

But all is not lost to my readers: today I found a great little site that has classic rock concerts for free, requiring only a login. The catch of the site is the cross-selling opportunities but the hook is free streaming of concerts that are not visual but audio, with the feature that the audio is very well done.

100 Acorns

100 Acorns

100 days of conceptual instructions by Yoko Ono.

Very cool ideas to take into ones consciousness, and then perhaps take into action!



Yoko Ono's IMAGINE PEACE project is coming to Toronto for the first time this fall as part of Nuit Blanche, the annual all-night festival of contemporary art that runs from sunset Sat 4th Oct to sunrise Sun 5th Oct, involving dozens of international artists.

Thousands of Nuit Blanche visitors will tie their wishes for the world to Ono's Wish Trees near Lamport Stadium.

After the festival, the wishes will be gathered by the artist and stored as part of the IMAGINE PEACE TOWER in Iceland.

A large IMAGINE PEACE billboard will probably be erected to face the Gardiner Expressway and 40,000 IMAGINE PEACE buttons will be given to Nuit Blanche participants.
