OFF THE AIR

Saturday, August 11th, 2012

been there done that

After 12 years of posting thoughts, brain farts, ideas, links, editorials and other stuff on this blog, I have decided to no longer provide updates on weidemannia.

Been there. Done that.

As you know, I had closed my social networking sites on MySpace, Facebook, Classmates, Linked In and many others I have since forgotten, because the initial thrill the Internet provided as a creative environment for me has turned into more of a chore. I am proud to say I have never “tweeted” and have no interest in the tweets of others. I just don’t care.

Perhaps, the straw that broke this old camel’s back was receiving over 25,000 spam-generated “gee this blog looks great – keep up the good work” comments posted on my articles – even though I had completely disabled commenting. I have no idea why they showed up, and 1 and 1 couldn’t explain it either – but based on the nature of the comments received, I believe some lonely Polish programmers who feel their actions of disturbance annoyance and are important to the betterment of the planet. Anyway, I am in the process of deleting all comments.

BUT, don’t be forlorn.

I am maintaining my epiclectic Flickr account, and will continue to upload images and photos there. Their method of preventing spam and blocking posters – when rarely required – is much less painful.

The images on the right will continue to link to my updates for those of you who happen to land here first for some reason.

Honestly, I expect no one to actually read this far.

If you do, let me ask you to take a moment and reflect on what you are doing with your time, and if it could be better spent by stepping away from the computer, laptop, smartphone and iPad, and taking a long walk in the woods.

Enjoy life!

It is with a heavy heart I must let my web friends know I will no longer be able to share my photos or album covers. Due to unexpected circumstances I will be closing my account. I have enjoyed every one of your comments and will miss your smiling avatars.

Best wishes to you all!

Radio Use Only

Friday, July 21st, 2006

How many of you out there had a favorite radio station you listened to as a kid? Remember how closely you identified with them? You probably also remember that the stations would release record albums in the local market as give-aways or promotional items.

Well, a new site has hit the web that promises to be THE center of gravity for gathering together all of those album covers – from all across the country. It’s only getting started now, but if you have a few albums in your collection to contribute, I know they would love to hear from you. Check it out!

The One and Only

Thursday, August 12th, 2004

Everyone on the planet is familiar with the now infamous record album cover featuring a beautiful woman sitting in a pile of whipped cream. BUT, if you, for some reason, have never ventured into a thrift store and browsed the bins of old LPs, I can guarantee that if you get in your car RIGHT NOW and drive to the nearest Salvation Army, Goodwill or garage sale, you WILL spot a copy of this album.

Amazing but True!

When Did You Last Twist?

Thursday, July 1st, 2004

If you didn’t already know, I collect vinyl records. During one of my recent treasure hunts, I uncovered a copy of Parkway’s ‘Your Twist Party With The King Of Twist Chubby Checker’, from 1962, in pretty nice shape. As I cataloged the album, I enjoyed reading the 42 year old cover notes, and I reflected on how times have changed. Enjoy this flash from the past. [ more ]
