Sound File Fails! I'm workin' on it, honest.

"Anonymous has left a new comment on your post;
'Hi, I can't seem to download these songs, is there a problem?'"

Hi, thanks for all the message, one and all.
Yes there's a problem, and I promise that I'm trying to fix it.

Ancient posts, ancient links, an uploader that appears to still have all the data after all these years, and is happy to share it with me, and sometimes with others, but not in all cases. Frustrating!

And I hope to have a handle on it soon, thanks.
I would love for you to be able to get at the material I have for you :)

NEWNESS! Happily sharing some new things with you!

Sometimes there's not a lot of new for a long while, and then other times...

So: Along with slowly trying to update and tinker with one thing or another right here on 'I'm Learning To Share', I've been crafting some other treats and diversions regarding my interests.

I'm unveiling a few new projects. Here are some links and info for you:

YoYo Burckhardt is my avatar name in Second Life, where I've been actively DJing for about the last 10 years or so, playing 'live' sets at various virtual dance clubs there.

The 'YoYo' blog is related to that, primarily a place to post DJ playlists and other things related to that experience - - including links to archived audio 'airchecks' of some of those sets...

The audio is parked at a Mixcloud page. 
Each post references a mostly complete playlist at the YoYo blog. Each mix is taken from one continuous audio file, a DJ stream, warts and all, with the occasional rambling mic break, referencing text chat conversations with folks who were there at the time. Something a little different than a typical mix on the web.

Definitely something a little different for me to be doing. It might be the era we're in, the isolation, the 'if not now, when' feeling - - but I find myself relaxing my stance on NOT sharing myself. Me. Me talking. My face, talking at you. Reading things, telling stories, rambling at length. If there's a concept beyond that, it's me sitting down for coffee or tea with you, and sharing something. Socializing, sorta, almost. Socializing by myself. I never thought I'd do this. I'm trying it on for size, we'll see what happens. With this 'I'm Learning To Share' blog, for all the years it's been sitting here, there was always an intent to really actually share myself with you, and I could never quite do it or feel like that was anything anyone needed. I'm still learning, maybe. ;)

These links will also be posted here in the blog sidebar for a little while (until the 'new' wears off), cuz I'm determined to not undersell this as a thing.
