My Friends/Art Tribe
Our friend/best man James Muir's MySpace site for his band Router. He is a very dear, old friend and his voice still gives me chills.
Cardie Clanton - Spoken Word Poet. His words are powerful when read, even more powerful when heard in person. Consider yourself blessed to have seen him perform.
Lahkem Burrell's MySpace site White Label Magazine. He is the most multi-tasking, multi-talented artist I know. His talent shines in everything he does from rap to fashion, from graphics to his new mixtape magazine.
Official Music Sites
Craig David's official site. his new album is on its way out anyday.
British band Everything But the Girl's Official site (recently updated - first major update since 1994)
Buzzin' Fly Records - Label started by Ben Watt from Everything But the Girl. Includes a really fun mini downloadable mp3 player called a FlyPod sampling the artists signed to the label.
Tricky Online - Tricky's Official Site. Don't ask me why am fascinated by this man and his music. I just am.
Art & Literature Sites
Postal Seance - a mini-site for the funny but interesting Henrik Drescher book. Testing a theory that if you send a postcard to someone who has died and it isn't returned by the post office, it must mean they received it!!
Goreyography - A site devoted to the late Edward Gorey. I loved his subversive sense of humor and gorgeous little gothic drawings!
Edward Gorey Mystery Games - These are wonderful little Shockwave games that Edward Gorey designed for the "Mystery" series on PBS. Too much fun!!
The Willow Tea Rooms - A wonderful site from The Willow Tea Rooms, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, a brilliant art nouveau architecht and artist.
The House for an Art Lover - Another site honoring a building designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Peter Max Online - I've loved Peter Max's work for a long time. His work has undergone a lot of changes, but always remained happy, colorful and inspirational.
