May 9, 2000 Updated links here and there. November 1, 1999 Made important changes to the Friends Links page. Excellent new sites added and old site-descriptions improved :) September 30, 1999 Replaced some music links with better ones. I _will_ make more audio files someday. Been busy with other web-projects, and just busy being in love :) July 9, 1999 Updated some links. May 27, 1999 New on the links page, a wonderful site I recently discovered called Imagine Radio. It allows you to customize your own online radio station, playing the artists _you_ want to hear! (Nobody's paying me to endorse it ;) I just tend to sound like a commercial when I'm enthused about something.) I couldn't resist. I set up a SunSinger station courtesy of Imagine Radio! It's programmed to play the female artists featured on A Site For Sore Ears as well as other singers I enjoy and plan to pay tribute to in the future. To listen while you surf ASFSE (or surf the web in general), just click on the animated radio icon you'll find at the bottom of most pages on this site. Have fun discovering new music and listening to old favorites! :D March 16, 1999 Encoded and uploaded some Edie Brickell real audio files. I'll try to write out descriptions/comments on them today. That's actually the hardest part for me. Writing those mini-reviews. Tough to express in words why I like the song, and after awhile you run out of different ways to say essentially the same thing..."Is good! I like. Listen. You like too." :P Oh, by the way, A Site For Sore Ears celebrated it's one year anniversary 8 days ago. Yeehaw! March 2, 1999 New midis, and many music links. Replaced all the existing real audio songs and added some new ones to the Abra Moore, Cyndi Lauper and Paula Cole pages. Started the Shawn Colvin page. Song samples to come soon! February 25, 1999 Almost finished the renovation! Yes I've been working hard redesigning. Y'see this is one of the first sites I made and I've learned a few things since then, so I decided it was time for a change. It's not too drastic and maybe nobody'll notice a difference 'cause it's subtle and since I'm using the same colour scheme. Oh well :) I've changed the layout a bit, created new graphics, enhanced old graphics, prettied up the tables, eliminated dead links, added many new ones, and reorganized in general. I'm also in the process of redoing the real audio files, as well as making brand new ones. This'll take awhile 'cause I'm a perfectionist. I aim to make the sound clips smaller (but not shorter), yet good quality at the same time. I've also revised and in some cases rewritten the mini-reviews/comments to go along with the audio files. Well if anyone's reading this, lemme know if you think the joint looks better now. And keep checking back for new songs! November 26, 1998 Updated the Friends Links page. Changed some descriptions and added banners, including one to a friend's recently redesigned Deborah Gibson Mini-Shrine. Check it out for some rare songs and very well-written album reviews! November 1, 1998 Fiddled around with the webrings page. Added new Women's House of Music graphics but kept the old around til I'm added to the new version. IF they add me, I should say. I'm a bit worried about the "need constant updates to your site" criteria. ;) October 26, 1998 My goodness, I really didn't mean to let a month go by again! LOL! I can't believe how the days and weeks are zooming by lately. It's Twilight-Zone-y! Anyway today I added more banners to my Sun's Pals page. (Hey isn't that what I did last month?! ;) So check out my pals' pages, puhleeze. Okay I SWEAR I'll get some Shawn Colvin real audios and reviews up next time. If anyone's still with me? Anyone care out there? hehe September 30, 1998 Another month, another update. haha. Anyhoo I do have other sites to work on and school-stuff soon as well, so expect one or two updates here each month. Doubt I'll be able to do more than that. So what have I done for you lately? ;) Well I just fiddled around with my Sun's Pals page (links to my friends). Please visit cause most of them are music-related anyway. What did I change? Some of the comments there were outdated and I had some new friends to add (yaaay!) I rearranged the whole thing alphabetically to prevent cat-calls of favoritism and cat-fighting amongst my amigos (hehe just kidding). Also added new banners there, and linked to my own personal homepage Crispy Corner. Yes I am my friend. :P August 26, 1998 Well Crosswinds messed me up again. Thanks to Fudge for letting me know my real audio files weren't working. Once again the server where I stored my large audio files, deleted everything. So I've given up on Crosswinds (and I'm not linking to it when I mention it because believe me, you don't want to go there) and uploaded the audio files to a friends account. So NEWSFLASH the sounds are working once more! The HTML's been changed to reflect the new address of the files, so everything should work. If something doesn't I'd really appreciate an email (or guestbook entry) telling me so! Okay I know there havent been many updates recently and I apologise. What with my family-feuding and monitor-mayhem...I've been kind of distracted. Also I've been making friends (hey I'm allowed to have a life and run a website too! :) and, don't feel betrayed, but, working on new websites (gasp). So bear with me, and one of these days when I'm in the recording/encoding mood I'll put some Shawn Colvin song samples up, as promised. :) And other singers in the future of course. Cause I do expect to discover and fall in love with more music. It's just not something I can plan to do in regular intervals ya know? ;) So forgive the irregular updates to this site, and don't give up on it please! Come baaaack! Please? Oh by the way...reason the Tori Amos page is still audio-less after all this time is, my dear friend Becky's been borrowing my Tori cds for...oh I'd guess...MONTHS...hehe..I wouldnt mind this if she was only _listening_ to the darn things but she hasnt gotten around to it yet. GRRRR. And no Judy Garland songs yet cause frankly I don't feel as motivated to make them anymore now that somebody else has made real audios for his Judy site (after visiting THIS website and seeing my plans, I might add, if I was feeling bitter, which I'm not ;) So now that it's already out there (wasnt before this to the best of my knowledge) I've lost that "Gee I'm gonna do something new and creative now! What fun!" energy. Thus the delay.
