As it’s Micro Monday I’d like to give a shoutout to the new @til Today I Learned microblog site made by @simonwoods – I’ve been falling off the #Indieweb wagon recently, and it’s community-led things like things that are inspiring me to get back on the horse. Mixed metaphors I know! #MicroMonday

Design of My Website (Cathie LeBlanc: Desert of My Real Life)
I discovered the IndieWeb about six weeks ago and wrote then about why I think it’s an important movement and community. Since that time, I’ve made a concerted effort to update my web site so that it looks like I want it to look. Although I’m not yet done, I’ve made good progress. I recently...

Really interesting article, Cathie. I do like the idea of having different pages for different things but all driven from the same ‘root’. So photos end up on a photo page, short notes on another page, etc.

Electribal Memories - Wikipedia from en.wikipedia.org

🎵 Just finished listening to the 1990 album ‘Electribal Memories’ by Electribe 101. One of my absolute favourite albums, and I only bought it by chance!

I usually popped into the record shop in the nondescript dormitory town I grew up in to see what was new, and kept seeing this under “E”. After a few visits nobody appeared to be buying it. I was intrigued enough to buy it album coverwithout knowing anything about it – something I almost never did.

Billie Ray Martin’s voice just blew me away (and she was only, what, 20 years old back then!). The combination of the understated electronic music and her soulful powerful voice, for me, approaches perfection.

There’s not a duff track on the album, and it ends (excluding remixes) with the epic tour-de-force title track: over 10 minutes of immersion in electribal memories (listen to find out what they are!).

The album is timeless. Twenty-eight years on, and it’s never lost its hold on me. And, I hope, never will. Enjoy… 🎵

 

@AnquetMaps On OMN PC are there keyboard shortcuts to zoom in and out, and to change between maps? On @memorymap it’s easy (+/- and I/O). Simple functionality, but so much quicker than clicking / scrolling.
