My Groovetech isn't streaming!

So I thought I would listen to my son's music on my RealPlayer since my server seems to be working today.   Some time ago I recorded him singing karaoke and then, in some instances, made Flash movies to turn them into a virtual online album tribute sort of thing.   Very Burning Man (for me!)

If you want to go to the site, the URL is

Well, it isn't Groovetech (although he is in the process of compiling a disc of original trance songs... he's quite the musician!)

I don't know if this will work or not, but I thought I'd post the links to some of his songs here.   If you have RealPlayer, the links should launch it.   I have no idea what happens if you have another streaming media player.   Feel free to post comments about that or about the site.

You are my Sunshine (acapella)
Smile and Think of Me (all original)
Counting Blue Cars
I'll Be
Always a Woman
For the Longest Time
Rocket Man
She's Got a Way

Of course, he's not half bad looking either!

I tried to tell Dad about my Leave No Trace certification..

NExt weekend, Im getting my Leave No Trace certification in Black Rock Desert. Though I grew up in the Mojave, this will be my first time on the Playa. By the end of the weekend, I will be qualified to oversee cleanup and instruct others in the Leave No Trace ethics. The training includes orientation and guidance from master LNT guides, and a two day trip through the playa.

Part of the training is learning one specific tenet of the seven tenets of the philosophy, and teaching it to the group. Mine is "Camp and Travel on Durable Surfaces"

When I told my dad about this, he scoffed. "Bunch of hippies! Bunch of socialists! I thought we were supposed to leave the earth better, not leave it untouched!" (Nevermind the bluster - he's all stuff.)

"But dad," I said.. "You cant spell 'conservative' without 'conserv.'"
