Nice one John et al. and very nice of the reviewer to mention your website John
http://www.lightgfoottribute.ca
But how come there is nothing of any substance on it?
Do you need any help??
A page of photos from the concert, the scan you have just displayed here and a biography or 5 of the participants would surely be a nice touch.
Instead all you get is a link
"SUNDOWN is aUTS Promotions production"
that only opens the page
http://www.lightfoottribute.ca/utspromo.html
with just your nice picture and a pious and optimistic statement
"more information coming soon."
So is Christmas!!

Dear Modem maderator I thought I had been behaving myself pretty well of late so I do not understand your admonition.
I was merely highlighting the undeniable fact that John's website was strangely bereft of any interesting content and proferred my help as a trained web author.
I note that John has agreed with me and has already added a new "news "page at:-
http://www.lightfoottribute.ca/news.html

a page headed
"May 2,2009 Gordn Lightfoot Tribute Show Canadian Legion, Aurora, Ontario"
where pleasingly to me John took up my suggestion of showing the cutting full sized
I think I am correct in saying that previously his website had more information
Now if his site had been indexed long ago by a search engine *** such as google it would almost certainly have been possible to look at old archived copies in the internet archives
by simply entering his domain name into the search box at:-
http://www.wayback.notlong.com

but if you do they deny that they have ever heard of it
I therefore googled (soon to be 'binged") for the text on that page
"May 2,2009 Gordn Lightfoot Tribute Show Canadian Legion, Aurora, Ontario"
yes including the well known typing error!!
and found:-
http://omo9ja.com/vidfeeder_view.php?id=C6VHh4zpHAQ
which I at first thought was some sort of youtube wannabe
but in fact has simply embedded John's original youtube video
complete with the caption
"Added On: May 4, 2009
Author: 002002jes
Length: 4:4
John Stinson and Paul Bartlett play Spanish Moss at the SUNDOWN - Gordon Lightfoot Tribute show in Aurora, Ontario on May 2, 2009
 
TagsMossDayLightfootStinsonSpanishRainyJohnPeopleGordon
Rating: 5.0 (2 ratings) View: 142 "
An educated guess would be that the "jes" in the moniker of the author (002002Jes)
implies that it was John E? Stinson who got that video onto that web page.
the website itself:-
http://www/omo9ja
is ostensibly the
"Nigeria Online community"
"Linking Nigerians Everywhere"
I must remember to pass a note of it to my fine Nigerian educated cardiologist



If the author was indeed "our" John I find it strange that he should have selected that website to display his prowess as when I met him and from the videos I have seen he looks to me to be the very model of a Canadian WASP

And another peculiarity while I am at it on John's home page he refers to
"SUNDOWN is a UTS Promotions production"
but the UTS outfit according to information on:-
http://www.utspromotions.com/info.html

is in Sacramento Califnoria and
"
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN OUR EVENT. UTS PROMOTIONS IS A HIGHLY MAINTAINED BOOKING AGENCY. WE LOVE OUR CLIENTS. WITHOUT THE CLIENTS WE ARE LEFT IN THE DUST. WE BOOK SHOWS ONLY IN (ALL 50 STATES) THE UNITED STATES. WE ALSO BOOK GIGS FOR WEDDINGS, BIRTHDAYS, AND EXCUTIVE EVENTS.
UTS PROMOTIONS UNLIMITED

1731 HOWE AVENUE SUITE 536
SACRAMENTO"
NOTE "all 50 states" ONLY
and no mention of Canada
John??
***I now find that googling for "gordon lightfoot tribute stinson" does now produce results for lightfoottribute.ca so it is now being indexed and should get crawled over by the internet archives device
(i apparently then takes 6 months for results to appear in a wayback machine's search
