The Mission Is Clear

I re-launched this website in late Spring of 2018 with the intent of using it as a creative, communicative and commercial tool. It’s still a work in progress, like so many of the projects you’ve read about on these pages. I haven’t published nearly as much as I’d planned to, but I’ve gained a small following of paid members to whom I am very grateful, and I’ve learned a lot in managing the site and producing content. It’s been a wild eight months, full of ups and downs, probably much like anyone’s challenging life (Keep your chin up and keep moving, kid.)

Now, with the dawn of the new year, I find myself not only doubling down on my commitment to producing original music, but also shifting the website’s mission in a way that we can all feel good about.  I’m now donating 15% of all revenue generated by this site directly to Society of St. Vincent de Paul. If you didn’t know, this organization’s mission statement is, “End poverty through systemic change.” I stand firmly behind that very basic mission, because poverty is the fundamental source of most suffering.

Since re-booting the human operating system to function on love-and-kindness-based values seems to be taking a very long time, the Vincentians provide poverty relief and assistance to those suffering in lack and need.  And, since my poverty-relief infrastructure is not what theirs is, it makes sense to divert a portion of the funds from memberships and downloads to the mission.

The added benefit of this tactic is that it lights a spiritual fire under my ass to produce more, and to increase the social value of the music, podcasts and other media you get from me. It’s gonna make me do more, because 15% of Not Much is still Not Much. But it’s something.

Feast Your Eyes And Ears On Music, Recipes, Stories And Much More.

Here in the well worn office chair of John J. Goddard, countless hours are spent culling the depths of the collective subconscious brain basket, ruminating on the findings, then turning them into little totems of meaning for you. And I love doing it, damn it. I’ve written two books, recorded several albums’ worth of music, made weird videos, and so much more, friends. It’s all been in an effort to make you laugh, cry, think, or hug the person nearest to you for dear life. And I’m still goin’! There’s a new album of jazzy funk music I’m working on right now, as you read these very words.

WHA?

This abundant wellspring of brain candy is the reason I created a simple way for you to download and digest as much of it as you like. It’s a membership to this site that gives you artist-direct, unlimited access to independently produced books and music by yours truly for one low, yearly or lifelong subscription price. If you become a member today, you’re gonna have immediate access to at least triple the value of what you laid down for admission. That includes:

E-book versions of both o’ my books, Dalmatian Cooking, and Lamb Goes In Town!! That’s 320 recipes and a crazy little fairytale with a lamb as the main character.

Oh, I’m not done. You get HOURS of MP3’s of my original music. The current collection includes R&B, Ambient and Darkwave, and it’s doing nothing but growing. Hell. Yes.

Is meditation and mental discipline your thing? You’re gonna get some binaural audio tracks to help you reach nirvana.

Do you like a good novel? You can watch The Art Of Self Exile, my new one, unfold here before your very eyes, complete with photos and multimedia.

All you need to do is become a $20 Yearly of $50 Lifetime member HERE, or through the menu up above.

And I need new members to help me keep producing more stuff. About 100, to be exact. Become a member today or share this with anyone you think would be interested. Do that for me and I’ll keep the good, independent stuff coming.

I love you all so much it hurts. Help me keep giving.

Ambient Textures: Volume I

I’m updating and re-uploading everything… EVERYTHING. This collection of ambient music was completed by yours truly in 2004. It was originally released under the nom de plume of my instrumental band/experimental music project, Cenozoic, with the title AON::Omnilateral. I have since added a track and remastered the entire album. Members have access to a free download of this and everything else I’m uploading today, and forever, as long as their membership remains active.

Memberships are pretty reasonably priced to fit any budget, so I hope you’ll consider becoming a member today. If you like my work, a membership will save you money on downloads. Here’s a playlist of Ambient Textures: Volume I for your listening and downloading pleasure.

Easy Caesar Salad Dressing Recipe

I can’t remember exactly when I developed this recipe, but it’s extremely easy and unbelievably delicious. I am told by just about everyone who tries it that it’s the best salad dressing they’ve ever had, not just the best Caesar. It’s tangy, savory, bright and zesty in all the right ways. It’s maybe the only Caesar salad dressing recipe you will ever need, and I hope you love the video below.

You can purchase and download MP3’s of the song with a PDF of the recipe, which you’re free to print or save to your device for later use. Members at the Silver and Platinum levels have access to free downloads of this and all other media downloads I publish. If you like what I’m doing and enjoy having it at your disposal, you can see why becoming a member has its benefits. But if you just want both this recipe and song for today, you won’t hurt my feelings at all. My family thanks you for your support of my darling little business.
