So you admit to being a philistinian. :P

Some day I'll buy a Whistler. I may even contract you to do a portrait or something if you are willing.

A portrait of you?

I imagine something in the style of Picasso, with weird and distorted features.

Oh, wait—

In response to overwhelming indifference, I am now offering COFFEE MUGS on my website! Click on the "purchase" link.

If you'd rather buy a painting, that's okay too.

I'd rather buy four paintings. Will you sponsor a new wing for my house?

You want paintings?

I'm sort of disappointed. Those are great mugs.

It's very difficult, keeping these nineteenth-century aesthetes happy.

I've added a so-so public domain recording of the Promenade theme from Mussorgsky's Pictures At An Exhibition. It's on the Gallery page, and it should open in a second window so you can listen as you browse the pictures.

I couldn't make the darn thing loop, so I pasted four recordings together and the playback stops after that. I don't think anybody will want to hear it five times, anyway.

I'm a bit intimidated by the whole multimedia concept, so if anybody can look in and see if it works for you (not all browsers work the same, as you know) that would be a help. There's also a recording of Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag on the Porpourri page.

A while back I purchased the entire Jay Ward sound library (the Jay Ward Studios created Rocky & Bullwinkle, George of the Jungle, etc.) and I'm resisting the temptation to have everything go POP! or BOING! or OOOGAH!

Don't worry, I won't do it. Since half the world does its surfing while on the job, it's a serious offense to blow a visitor's cover by making a noise he isn't expecting.

Might be entertaining, though.

It works, but it doesn't start playing automatically. I have to download the file, which takes several minutes.

Hm...odd. I'm sure it comes down to having to embed the file. I've tried that, but the playback is distorted.

I shall consult my web guru on the matter. I am taking him out tonight for a steak dinner. That should do the trick.

Not that it matters. If people want to hear music as they surf, they're probably playing their own. I'll shut down the audio until I can get it right.

Oh, nooooo! :(

Came seeking the link to Whistler's website and his signature, in which the link was given, has gone!

I thought I had bookmarked it but I can't find the bookmark either.

Please help!
