ART AND MUSIC SITES
-- the first web site we
developed, for Budwick Music Company, showcases a remarkable artist.
MORO is one of the most talented guitarists and composers the
twentieth century has spawned -- his history is fascinating, and the
compositions that find their ways through his guitar are
spellbinding. He plays a guitar that is a rare piece of art in
itself, made by master luthier Marcelo Barbero. His web site
provides photos, audio samples of his work and the tale of this
incredibly gifted minstrel. Add his music to your collection --
three vinyl LP's (for the vinyl collector) and
four CD's are available at this site. Take the jump to
Amazon.com from his site too. Visit our
music page for some music videos of
this great artist.
Trío Sol de America
-- music in the great musical tradition of Mexico, in the San
Francisco Bay Area. These guys are good! They've got some videos on
so oyou can listen. Contact me if you'd like to hire them for
your event , you can do so through the Gigmasters link below.
What's not to like here? Chris Watson's eclectic site has a bit of
everything... music, essays, photography, humor ... and don't
miss his song lyrics, which in my opinion can be construed as most
awesome poetry. (Some R-ratings on this site.)
I first came across Ron's work in a small
poetry volume years ago and was really impressed with his eye for
beauty. Even more amazing to me, he and the co-author of
that little volume got me started in modeling by recommending me to
a reputable modeling agent who took me on. My modeling career
was short-lived, but working with Ron planted the seeds of my own
photographic journey, and I eventually moved to the other side of
the camera.. Ron's work over the years has been absolutely
incredible. Check it out!

happens to be Mary Barnett's husband (gee whiz, so that's
why they have the same surname!) Mike is a guy with many interests

(For example, check out this conversation one night while Mike is
watching a western movie on TV):
Mary: "What ya watching,
Mike: "Quiet Burp".
Only took Mary five
minutes or so to realize he was watching "Wyatt Earp" starring Kevin
Costner. 'Nuff said. Mike's a funny guy. He's also studying
classical guitar. Click on the animations below to see videos of
him practicing. And of course, his web site was developer by
