Sometimes having a long name, or a long band page name, can be quite upsetting when you want to create web pages with a URL to share on other websites, on say, face book? a maximum of 32 characters. Did a count on mine, my name alone without all the Christian middle names thrown in, makes 20 characters, that's without the http:// stuff and the www at the end of it. The aging process, one then thinks that the name is the easiest to remember. Does not work with promoting your ideas for social service. Shorter means sweeter. Found to my dismay that the youtube subscribers, though the page has been viewed by over 47,000 people, has only 200 subscribers. I have 49 subscribers when last I looked. You need 100 subscribers to change your URL to a shorter one, and it is once only. So I followed a suggestion about getting 2000 subs without paying for it, had a power failure and bombed out on completing the process because while watching his video with absolute avidity, I forgot to subscribe. . If you do like someone's methods and they work for you, a bit of appreciation in subscribing would help that chap,not only to motivate him/her (chappie for the female? ha ha), into making more stuff that is helpful, but also gets their brain boxes working on your behalf.
I hope you availed yourself of the download "Electrolyte". This is a spoof on "missed opportunities" for those of you who would like to start your home businesses. The ideas were "genuine" and in practice in my home, inventions abound from water systems to new materials used which were "unthinkable" by the average individual who isn't a risk taker. I am. The attitude is "I pay to get shoddy workmen, so I may as well take a risk, cos I am going to paying someone in any case!" Find this rather hilarious, though the Bank Managers beg to differ.
Anyway, the spoof.. Be inventive. You may not make music, but making money is an open option, plus freedom of course. Starved often, and slept on floors, so I know. Now bribery and corruption... what can I give anyone as a means of getting the 100 subscribers? You let me know. Bribery is not a dirty word, you work for someone and they expect you to perform? A good simile, on that thought for the day, it is almost 1 am on the 14th of July and I am taking advantage of an internet that works when it normally does not. I love you all. My most favorite fan club is here. That's a fact!

Just to let you know that if you did not get a reply to your email to me on firstname.lastname@example.org, it is because your email does not work. example stoogechandler@Outlook.com says mail box not available. Otherwise you will get a reply, always. That's a promise. I keep my promises.. The second method of contacting me is interactive and on face book, faster than on email cos I have 3000 odd messages and it is most often subscriptions to places that I contribute my blogs and ideas, thoughts etc. If I am online. I have an internet connection which is slower than a wet week, and I am telling you, it is very wet in the hills of Wariyagala and will continue till August. We have monsoon months and dry months.
As you may notice, i up load songs which I consider good music. Going by the number of plays on www.reverbnation.com/Taba but it could be that the choice could be different if you actively participated in telling me what YOU would consider a song that I could then upload here for you all to listen to. Music is a personal taste. You all liked and it is universally liked "I just wanna be me", There are over 170 songs on reverbnation, the start stuff and the latest, including the "spoken word" songs with my music in the background. As one of my other fans suggested, she would like the background music as a separate song :) Love feedback. Can then visualize my pouring over the notes on the web to "remove the vocal" and make it an instrumental. Mind Boggling. Edits? Ugh.. Horrrrrrrible! And it is all done on Audacity (source forge free ware), with trials and errors on RX3 from Izotope. Greek chum! Let's say under the player on fb a comment with the song that you like? On the pinned post for example? If someone likes the same song, like the suggestion, then I get the numbers.. Once a month? Once every two weeks?
I am just feeling horrible because I had to give a female friend to the vet because she neglected her pups while having a ball in my premises and then returned after 2 days absence teat full. So sent her to the vet too. Now she is baby sitting her pups in the shelter, and today, I sent the 2nd female for spaying because the pups and animals that visit are vagrants and I adore animals and people! Surrogate mother is my second name to lonely hearts club people and animals. Love you all.. Let me know. Or messages in the inbox here? Still learning about websites.

How do you know? I have dedicated the number 1 song to my number one group. Simple. Easy. sincere! Thought you may like to see the real me, minus hair dye in patches, miss my 8 year old student who always said "Missed a bit" when he showed up at my classes. Learnt loads while with me, then the mum moved him to a group class for company. Sad..
By the way, did you all know that the two main stream religions follow two Arabs? One from Bethlehem and the other from Mecca. The first promoted his Dad.. an invisible being who created water, the land, the earth, you and me, and 5 "Do not" precepts kill steal etc.. which actually related to the habits of the then incumbents of their respective country. Even the "He who is free of sin, cast the first stone" blah relates to Chop Chop square in Saudi Arabia, and we, everyone of us, who gets not even music from these two, but blessed with talent from the dad of the first, follows them "religiously" So much for that. You all know I love children, without exception, in any part of the world. The second is attempting to empower women to recognize their importance in society. The followers of the second, have no voice, Up in arms about that!
Peace! When will we have it? Here.. Music, and the many music websites, and peace reigns as long as it is not plagiarized.
For you.. "No bridge too far", a video showing me in my inspired moments, post dinner, belly full, aging, and enjoying bliss. And my creation Cottage of quartz. Come visit, bring along your member tag here, and proof that you are a fan of mine, then its free meals.. accommodation pays for the cost of incessant renovations, Waiting on a gutter repair man and an electrician, connected cos without one, we can have uninterrupted electricity and horrible bills, with the other we can live, and have power failures. Remember, love you all, mentioned often, and yes, I am now, sort of, connected to the world. Emails .. always welcome.. email@example.com and replied. Better facebook and my time line, shows what "rabble rousing" I am up to :) not really. Logical and programming makes it always "true" .. Mucked up my computer. Attempted to rectify an illegal copy installed by the computer people and destroyed my computer.. Stay cool.. That's the temperature in Kandy at any time of day.

Hello me beloved friends.. Sorry I have been most neglectful of you and the world.. Decisions and income. The latter rules the world, and so too the status of one's life.. Moved into a slum in a hurry cos of a decision to rent my place on the 1st of December which never happened. But to give vacant possession means to move the entire contents of a home to another home, and blessed in that I do have a home to go to, my Quartz Cottage in the hills, means minus the internet, no telephone either unless I get a WIFI connection. May investigate the likelihood of that, and instead of having it firing along, it may just limp along. No uploads cos they are in my home. Maybe I should have brought it along on a USB.. Give me a couple of days to get into the idea of doing things in two steps, a bit like a dance, than in one step, straight off the press. Made two songs and more, it is all on www.reverbnation.com/taba where my songs are..
I hope you all are happy and have had a blessed season, presently locked out or locked into my "Flat" which fits into my kitchen in the exalted surrounds of the champs elysee of Colombo 7, my family home. Dealing with senility of the landlord and frugality to miserly! Ah.. Iife can be fun though a battle! Remember to have a look at the face book timeline, cos There is my latest posts from a very cheap but functional phone but it cannot be used for page shares or from the internet.
I do love you all.. Seasons greetings.. stay blessed and be happy.. Fight with the landlords and play your TABA music as loud as you can.. I am on you tube.. Created some new Video's ... Giving you my latest creation, and a kudos to a dead sister who was my "musician".. Melanie my sister..

7 days in Kandy with my Quartz Cottage project, creative stuff of course, like walls without cement (youtube), and creative flooring without tiles. The latter always reminds me of hospitals, and I have successfully avoided going to one cos have relatives who are doctors and family who are Veterinarians, trust the latter really. It is understood that people often confuse doctors and with a dose of indigestion, you could be diagnosed as having heart failure, and vice versa of course where you are given meds for gastritis and you end up dead with a heart attack! Veterinarians are always better cos they have silent patients who do not confuse the issue. And unless muzzled tend to bite if the medicine is painful. I would like to do that to my heart specialist who almost killed me! My latest song is called "Flipped" about a woman who goes nuts cos her doctor want to marry her for her ailments. A get rich quick scheme. Maybe I should marry him cos all his patients are "Dying " to know him. And in that frame of mind, made "joy in the eyes of my father" which I have uploaded with a download for you all cos heaven awaits you if you marry your doctor! Just kidding! Past midnight does this to one. Anyway, I love you all! Just to let you know! If there is a song that you like, sort of vote for it, by sending me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or send me a note via www.tabafordancemusic.com (uninterrupted music and messaging all in one).. Waiting for the day when I become a millionaire! Hope you become one sooner. God bless!
