An Ideologue's Idea Log: Entry #10

Ways I need to change the "Eben Brooks Band" website to be just the "Eben Brooks" website, and ideas on how to accomplish them.

  1. New shopping cart. The osCommerce shopping cart is buggy, plus it's way more than I need . . . kinda like swatting flies with a bazooka. So I need a new one.
    • Go with the PayPal off-site shopping cart
    • Look into CDBaby's cart to see if I can adapt it to my needs
    • Look into possible solutions via WordPress
  2. Redesign "About the Music" page. It currently only highlights one album, Mirrors. I need for all album information to be available, but also for it to not be too long.
    • Make "About the Music" a gateway page, which links to individual pages about each album
    • Implement expandable/collapsible album/track information
  3. Create new intro video. I liked the "Presenting The Eben Brooks Band" video I had up before, but now, of course, it's no longer germane.
    • Take existing video footage and make video "presenting" just me
    • Talk to Sun, Moon, & Stars Productions about putting something together
  4. Write new bio. The one I have is old, old, old. Some of it still applies, but not all of it. (No sub-points to this one; I just have to sit down and do it.)
  5. Redo the logo. Again, no sub-points, just something I have to get off my butt and do.
  6. Fix the news feed. Darn it! Why doesn't anyone tell me these things are broke?!?

Possible suggestions
You might talk to Kay (the "other half" of the Shapero pair) about possible solutions/suggestions here - she's the web programmer (I'm pretty strictly embedded & real-time "stuff").

Re: Possible suggestions
Thanks. I may do that in the next few days or so.

I have experience with logo design if you want a hand. Design wise I am ruthless, creative, and work well with others.

Thanks for the offer, but that's actually the one area I've got pretty well covered. Just have to sit down and do the work.
