I have my own domain! ductapeguy.net

After many years, I'm finally setting up a webhome at my very own domain: http://www.ductapeguy.net

I'll be moving over there in stages for the next little while. The reason for the move was to consolodate all my web things into one place, so I'll take a while to move in.

Anyway, today was a very busy day in my Internet life.

1. I set up this blog and domain http://www.ductapeguy.net.

2. I was featured on Episode 37 of Bill Dey’s Country Music Podcast.

3. My audio recording of my brother-in-law Andrew Beatty’s novel, White Trash Land has been accepted for distribution onpodiobooks.com. It should be available for download in the coming weeks.

4. My new Librivox Community Podcast is now up. It features material and a recap of my experiences at Pocamp Toronto.

Lots of New Stuff

While I'm at PodCamp Toronto, I have a gig at C'est What in Toronto opening for Uncle Seth and alt-rock band +Nurse.

The Gig is on Saturday February 24 at about 9pm. There is no cover charge that night, so come on down if you are in the Toronto area. As most of the audience are podcasters, I'm sure there will be many recordings of the concert.

This could be an opportunity to expose my music to a whole new audience.

Although I've long said that all my music here is podcast safe, I set up a new account with the Podsafe Music Network.. After only one week, my Duct Tape song was played on the Living with Mungo Podcast.

My new Librivox Community Podcast is now up. I Co-hosted this with Kristin from Librivox. Download the MP3 file here

Are You Happy Mom?

My mother points out that it is over a year since I updated this blog. Actually she pointed out that it was 3 months, ... and 6 months... and 9 months... You get they idea.

In the last 1-1/2 years, I have been very busy with a new workplace, a new home, listening to a million podcasts, booking acts for a folk club, recording public domain audio-books for Librivox.org, spending time with my wife and daughter, and rediscovering my faith.

In an attempt to rediscover this blog, I will start to answer the question: So what have you been up to?

Funny you should ask.

  1. On the music front, my entire CD and several newer songs are available on my EZFOLK.COM site. http://ezfolk.com/audio/bands/600/
  2. Last December 26, one of my songs, Homeless Babe was included on a list of 128 CC licensed Christmas Songs on Some Rights Reserved, the blog of Uwe Hermann, a German Debian developer. The article was featured on boingboing! This led to over 1500 downloads throughout the year. The song is currently the #2 all-time downloaded Christmas song on Ezfolk.com.
  3. I still maintain my classroom webpage, but at a different school. Mr. McGaughey's Grade 2 class http://par.scdsb.on.ca/classes/mcgaughey
  4. I have been recording chapters of public domain audiobooks for Librivox.org . Over 2500 people from around the world are volunteering to try to record ALL PUBLIC DOMAIN WRITINGS and release them as free audiobooks. My (somewhat out of date) page on librivox is http://librivox.org/wiki/moin.cgi/DuctapeGuy . Some of my contributions to librivox include:

What's Not to Like?

Angryalien.com has flash animations of 30 second re-enactments of classic movies ... as re-enacted by bunnies.

I am particularly fond of It's a Wonderful Life.
