I created an e-mail account probably around 1998 or so with the then heralded Yahoo! service.  The internet was a fairly new thing to me and I didn’t have much of an idea what I was doing outside of my comfortable AOL bubble that I had created for myself with the help of the many “free” CDs they sent in the mail promising “Fifty free hours of AOL use!” or whatever the hell it was.  I have been riding with this e-mail account since its creation and have been deflecting the attempts of other people to convince me to jump on the Gmail bandwagon.

“Yahoo sucks,” is a frequent argument.

“Gmail actually works,” is another one.

New free music

Well, after two years of fumbling around, I managed to finish a full album which can be downloaded (for free) right here.  It’s called Boundary Waters for the simple fact that I like how that phrase sounds.  I heard it used a few times last year when the forest in northern Minnesota caught fire and the smoke could be smelled as far away as Milwaukee.
