Ongoing Conversation Band Identity

i saw that you posted my e.mail on the vvn site. i don't know if you
have time for this, but you might find this interesting...

someone bought the domain i was using for ramona at one point
"" - they've kept the name and are using it in
reference to their dermatology, with the site specifically and solely
addressing seborrheic dermatitis (severe dandruff)... weird that they
kept my name and are using it to endorse their whatever...

also i received an e.mail from some corporate dude named arthur
simmons. he wrote ( don't really have to read the whole thing.
mostly my response and the result.) ::


I contacted you the other day about, but you did not
indicate interest in it.  If you are interested in the domain, you can
take priority position to acquire it here:

Also, I have received a number of questions from my morning email
about domain purchases.  So, I thought I would take a moment to answer
the most common questions:

1.  I don't want to rebrand everything - Not to worry, you do not have
to rebrand at all. After you buy the domain, my system can
automatically link to your website
( for example).  You will be up and running with the
new domain almost immediately.

2. I used to own this domain and lost it!   - If you owned the domain
previously, we will work with you.  Our company has special policies
and discounts for domains accidentally lost by previous owners.
Previous domain owners have priority to acquire the domain.

3. How much does the domain cost?   - We accept all reasonable offers
on domains and we sell the domain first-come, first-serve to the first
reasonable offer.

You can submit your offer on here:

Most find my priority domain notice system to be very useful. If you
prefer not to receive these messages, please simply send me a quick
email and I'll be sure you don't receive any more.

<<<< i replied >>>>

this domain means nothing to me anymore, though it is my name and i
find it absurdly gross that you are holding onto it and trying to
resell it.


a few days later i checked and found that the site
now consists of a log of maybe all of my previous online press...
strange huh?

anyway, you're site is funny how you have random e.mail posted. hope
all is well. could i trust you with a new song or two? you wouldn't
send it around or anything? ::ramón

>I’m booking a show for a friend who’s touring from philly with another person from France. I was trying to get in touch with brenden, but apparently he hasn’t been in montréal for a while now. anways, would your band be interested in playing, and, if so, would you be able to play?
>you can listen to some of the music here:
>also, if you know a way to get in touch with people at friendship cove, I’d appreciate that!
>also also, for some small world info, remember that show you played in brighton, mass a few years ago, at the HOSS? there was a dude who lived there with big sideburns, named dan shea? well, he’s putting out the ramona cordova album. I just thought I’d throw that in there…
>please get back to me, if you can!

ramona córdova is a project which was started in the fall of 2005 by ramón vicente alarcón:

i remember starting to play the guitar when i was 8 or 9 years old. i had a cheap guitar, that got passed down to my family, which looked like Marty McFly’s guitar, from Back To The Future. i used to just stand around trying to play like he did in the film.

i remember when i was 11, i started getting very interested in photography. this spawned from viewing links on blogs i had found through make out club, and live and candid photos i’d seen on photographer’s websites of the bands i loved. i was excited because the middle school i was about to attend had classes on photography. sadly, my family had to move again and i never had the outlet to properly learn anything about the medium.

i remember too when i was 11, how i first discovered the art of creative writing. i had a teacher named mr. hommel, and he loved to write and to read. he had us writing and reading all the time. it taught me how you can really get lost in this, in a great way, and how you can create something that otherwise wouldn’t exist in your world.

i remember when i was 13 or 14, and my family bought our first computer. eventually i saw beyond the video games and the Mayo Clinic Family Health Encyclopedia that the computer came with, and began to use e.mail for the first time to keep in touch with new friends from florida! this was a huge door to the world of possibilities in internet technology. better yet, eventually i started to make fake ID’s and imitation driver’s licenses on Window’s 95 – Paint Brush. in high school i took a graphic design class in which everyday we would go through the instruction book for adobe photoshop until we were at the book’s end.

then i remember getting caught up in bands that i had from the time i was 14 until i was 21. i had forgotten, or at least pushed aside, the ambition and motivation to do much else besides focusing on having great press photos, and getting the attention of managers, booking agents and labels.

i am so glad that today i am able to remember all that i truly love to do. and so, these days i am focusing on my creative passions in full. i hope that this will be evident in the things i plan to present in the near future.

BAHHHHHHHH!!! blah blah blah… fuck it! i’m a person!
