I just thought I would say Hello.

I found this place sort of by accident and because somebody had posted a link to my website within a conversation here.

I'm a political news junkie from Canada and International Events are my interests.

Hi! Andalublue

I chose the name "Calm" way back in 2001 while at MSN groups.

When signing up for groups, I noticed that most everyone were not completing their profiles.

I wrote a few poems about it all.
http://www.dotandcalm.com/calm-archive/Calm-Poems.html

I write a lot of poetry.

At the moment I have just completed a poem about the NSA whistleblower named Edward Snowden and I'm attempting to find a singer and band to produce the tune.

As of last evening, I had found somebody to do it for 400 bucks and they lived in Serbia.
(YouTube Video)
Jovana - Demo singer for hire,Online studio singer for hire, Female Session singer, Backup vocal - YouTube

Then, after I sent the lyrics, she refunded my money and claimed that she could not do it because the Serbs hate Americans (I'm Canadian) and she was too afraid of backlash.

So, I'm still on the hunt for a vocalist and band.

Wow! Was she afraid of the backlash of the pro- or anti-Snowden crowd? Serb or American?

Hi! Andalublue

As I understood the reason, it was because there is much paranoia in her neighbourhood as per the Yugoslavia conflict. The winners (Kosovo) love America and the losers (Serbia) dislike Americans. I'll say one true thing about the singer, she was really honest and returned my money. She could of just kept it and there was nothing I could do about it, because I had wired it via Western Union. I only lost the 25 bucks it cost for the money transfer.

Yesterday, I found a band in Canada and it is gonna cost me 500 bucks. I really don't know how happy I'm gonna be with the music arrangement because the band is known for jazz tunes and jazz is not my cup of tea. The tune should be ready by Monday the 8th. I got some coffee mugs and T-shirts on order and a YouTube channel set up already.

Are you a news/political junkie?

I have a V-Bulletin forum (like this website has) which I set up just for my own personal use in 2004. I use it to sort of store and catalogue stuff I want to keep or save for future reference. I chose V-Bulletin because it has a very good search module. I'm the only member. I normally don't have it open for public viewing, but would give you a peek if you were interested. I believe the database to be the largest non-commercial news aggregator website in North America. I host the V-Bulletin forums on my own server in my own home. In past conversations with you, I have linked to DotAndCalm (hosted at Blue Host) but that website contains less than 5 percent of my overall content. The stuff I post at DotAndCalm is just where I copy/paste particular threads from my V-Bulletin forums.
