Longmire’s Groove

Posted by Mr. Longmire on Jan 4, 2009 in Music

One of my many half-baked ideas is to create music for an album. As I have no musical ability whatsoever… and limited resources to real musicians, I am going to use GarageBand and in some cases, karaoke versions of some tunes to accomplish this. I have already finished one track and I’m working on others. When finished, I hope to offer it to you, my friends, for free or for a nominal price. Here for your listening enjoyment is a little something I like to call… Longmire’s Groove … awww yeah!


New Orleans trip

100_0497I just signed up on Flickr and uploaded some select photos from my trip to New Orleans back in July 2008. You can view them here, if you so desire.


The past two years, if you’re interested…

So, what have I been doing for the past two years?

Basically not much has changed in my life. Still working at the same job, living in the same house, seeing the same woman and still not married. I traveled a little during that time. My girlfriend is in an administrative assistant organization that has annual conferences and I tag along sometimes. In 2006, we traveled to Tampa for her conference and last year visited New Orleans. We also went on a cruise last year to Key West and Nassau, Bahamas. I have some video from that cruise that has to be seen to be believed. Friends have been telling me that I MUST put it on YouTube. I will do that soon.

Oh, last year was fun when I came home during the Memorial Day weekend in May to find my house flooded. The water supply line to the toilet in the master bedroom came loose and sprayed water freely for two days straight while I wasn’t home. It flooded half of my house. The next few months my house was torn up as contractors dried the floors out, replaced the sublooring and floor, carpets, baseboards, some wall areas, and replaced a bathroom vanity. It was quite a pain, but also a blessing as I did get some ancient carpet replaced.

I just signed up on Flickr, so I will have some photos to share from time to time.

Well, that’s all for now.

It's me.. Longmire!

It's me.. Longmire!

Hello there. I’ve been away for a while, haven’t I? Just over two years. I guess I should explain, huh?

Well, blame it on laziness and inconvenience. One day of not feeling like writing turned into two days. That turned into a week, then into two weeks, then into a month. A month eventually turned into a year, then before I knew it, another year passed! Oh, I had plenty of entertaining things to share, but I just got into a mood to where I tired of the chore of posting entries.

That’s where the inconvenience came in.

The way I posted entries was this… I would write in Dreamweaver, which is website authoring software, and then post the updated page via FTP. I only did this from my home computer and by the time I got home from work everyday, I didn’t want to get back on a computer to do anything. I just wanted to unwind and watch television or play video games.

Well, I finally arrived into the new millennium and am now using blog software that allows me to log in, write, and publish wherever I have access to a computer and internet connection. Much better way to do it. On the advice of friends and associates, I chose WordPress to blog with. I recommend it highly.

About the web site: I plan to overhaul The Wonderful World of Longmire. A totally new design and some restructuring… mainly tossing out some old pages that take up space. Definitely staying are the two most popular features of the site… the romance novel covers (more to come) and the Planet of the Apes Funkified saga (I WILL FINISH IT IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS).

I missed out on quite a bit of commentary in the election year that just ended. Eh, well, you can never run out of Sarah Palin jokes. NEVER.

I started doing some joke stuff on subjects that are now way outdated. I guess I should do a special page titled “Outdated Material That Never Got Released In Time” and throw them all in there.

So, bookmark this page and come back often. I’m not planning to stay away again.

Oh, and one more thing… HAPPY NEW YEAR!
