Detouring the usual ~ “and now a word from our sponors”~ : Yes, the sidebar to the left has been ‘refreshed’ for your listening pleasure.

Hey folks, it’s chilly but sunny at my tiny spot on the globe today. At the moment I’m making an effort to deal with the advertising that appears from time to time on blogs. These marketing exploits run the gamut from insurance sales to something just the barely acceptable side of what might be termed “solicitation.” I’ve discovered the ads cavorting in my blogcasa by visiting when not logged in and from different computers than those from which I usually finger yap from.

I’m not quite sure how these ads affect the appearance of the videos posted in the sidebar to the left << — . I hadn’t given this much thought until still a dreamer inquired where was the video I referred to in a comment.  So I thought maybe an aside post of this nature was in order.


Hitting the  “play” > arrow for these videos will get  you a concert in miniature while you’re visiting . Or you can enlarge to full screen–or go to YouTube to check out the comments, turn on the captions or explore whatever else is offered. But you do not have to venture to the tubes of you in order to listen to the music.  Take note that the majority of the videos have been refreshed/reloaded/replaced by new offerings.  Birdy is today’s headline act with “Wings” and “People Help The People”.  Further down the sidebar Mr. Frost is live with “White Lies.” Along the way there are some “Bad Men,” and Odetta’s cover of Dylan’s “Masters of War’–among other things such as “Don’t Stop.”  I’ve retained “La Lista” because it’s currently my go to uplift song of choice and I like having it at the ready.

There’s no way to know who likes what in these video buffets unless there are comments left here X. Everything offered is subject to my whims and mine alone. Having said that last sentence, I am interested in indie music creations–as in those people who do not usually have the money to market their music on the radio waves or MTV. So if you ever care to share an “unheard” voice, please don’t hesitate to drop a video link in a comment.

Thanks, gracis, merci—cheers.


Yeah, look to the left. If you don’t see music videos there, please let me know. 🙂 ~~~ sound waves all around~~~

    I see it and hear it Eva. Beautiful. This girl has soul. Would I be considered indie? If so, I will be sending you something soon; for your approval of course. 😉

      Hey Johnny. Let’s see, do you have a major recording contract with a music company? If not, then I suspect you’re VERY indie indeed. 🙂 Looking forward to hearing more of your music.

        I wouldn’t take a contract. I recorded a new one today. Coming soon. 🙂

    Last time we chatted, you mentioned something about waiting to hear which of Cissie’s “sidebar” songs I liked best. I didn’t realize you meant YOUR sidebar (DoH!) and so I went sifting through YT’s sidebar recommendations of her related songs. My brain…I swear, it just vacates my head sometimes! Of YT’s recommendations, I love ‘Gimme That Swing’…now I’ll start over and try it from the YOUR sidebar here…

    Unpromoted, non-commercial artists? If you ever want to take a skim though it, I’ve got an eclectic playlist with mostly un-famous stuff from artists around the world. Some of the songs are totally in other languages and I have no idea what the words are…but the tunes all really rock 🙂

    Hope you’ve made a full recovery & all is well with you! ~Reb

      LOL–Oh MisBehaved Wonder Woman!!! I’ve switched out the Carsie Blanton from the sidebar. Yikes! Sorry. Thank you for the link to explore.
      I’m am feeling good thanks. 🙂
