Web Page to Change, again!

I am going to be revising this page tonight and tomorrow. wayemason.com is getting its own webhosting. My new consulting page will be the top page you hit, and all the fancy nerd stuff (RSS, links, images) will no longer be on any pages but this news page. This will allow me to start using this page for more formal –more–

Prolific Posting Prohibited by Illness

I have a medium serious head cold. Swelling, sore, liquid filled sinus action. I have big plans to write long scathing critiques about the provinces cultural investment problems, and also the lack of maintainance money for existing buildings, but I can barely bring myself do any work above clicking between daytime television shows. Maybe later. In other news, if you –more–

Last FM, not the answer

So you are registered on Last.fm. You go to check the recommendations to see what you should ask for for Xmas. You make the mistake of listening to the Lowest of the Low first record, for old times sake, the week before. One listen! And all of a sudden Last.fm is telling you to go listen to the Tragically Hip. –more–

Project Based Lifestyle

I realise more and more I need to fill my life with projects or risk bordom. I read a phrase the other day “If you want something to get done quickly, give it to a busy person.” I am at the opposite end of that right now, I need one or two big projects to come along to get me –more–

This week, on this old website.

I cannot believe I found this in archive. My original website, hosted on Chebucto Freenet, from late summer/early fall 1996. This baby is 10 years old. I take pride in the fact that my website, while HTML 2.0, was simple and clean… rather than the multi-hued, colour riot that was so common back then. AA551

ONE GREAT CITY

Mr Mayor, I am concerned about the article in the Herald today regarding city staff pulling down signs that may have been on the private property of citizens. The caviler attitude of Mr O’Brien is astounding! If an overzealous worker went beyond the city right of way right onto lawns, not only was s/he trespassing on private property, but the –more–

Urban Planning in HRM?

The ChronicleHerald.ca Halifax city hall is seeking an urban design consultant for a planned 18-month, $200,000 study intended to help municipal officials shape the look of metro’s urban core in the future. HRM is actually planning streetscapes? Development rules? Who are you, and what have you done with my city? On second thought, never mind!

Vogue Page added

I have added a short resource page/plea for help and sanity about the Vogue Theatre. The place is crack for creative people, totally addictive as an idea. I think about it too much. You should too.

Fixed it

A #99 had changed into a (( in the style.css file. And this meant nothin’ in Safari, my browser of choice, and meant it was totally broken in Firefox. But now that is fixed. UNFORTUNATELY, Feedlist does not work with non XHTML 4.0 compliant browsers, so EI 5.1 for Mac breaks on my website. I have edited the obscure “Handler –more–

Things to do today….

I am pretty much bored. I have about 1 hour of work to do before the end of the week. I am thinking about driving to Ship Harbour today to look at a house/cottage/country home/money pit I want to buy. 2 hours down if I do. Maybe tomorrow I will reward myself with a trip. The blog looks good, at –more–

CD of the Week

Bill Janovitz – Lonesome Billy This record was released in 1996 on Beggars Banquet, and was the first solo record by Buffalo Tom frontman Bill Janovitz. To me, Bill’s voice is such a part of the sound of Buffalo Tom, so for the most part, this record is one of the best records the Tom never released. Those of you –more–
