New! LairMap to Illuminate the Lost

After some thought, I decided to create a bit of a Site Map for the Lair, in order to bring to light some pages that might not be Visited too Often, for the Primary reason that most LairLurkers don't even realize that they exist. Better that than try to submit a bunch of Obscure individual pages to Search Engines in the wake of the Home Lair, and get that Much more junk email for Herbal Viagra (and breast enhancement, penile enlargement, and miraculous home businesses doing Goddess-knows-what, etc.) in return! So, in order to make the Lair more Fun and Accessible, here are links to all the Lairs (Completed and Otherwise) Established to date. I hope that this will make it Easier for you to navigate through the Tangled mess that is Kari's Lair. Then again, it might also get you hopelessly Lost in dark, obscure LairCrannies that rarely see the light of day! But at least you'll hopefully have fun while getting Lost in here...

HomeBase, MarketLairs and Artist Tributes

Well, first of all, I assume that everyone knows where the Home Lair Page is by now...

***

Now, then, let me introduce myself. My name is Karen Ingrid Olsen (I got this name by having Scandinavian relatives on Both sides). I am the notorious LairMistress referred to in the signature of all my emails. I do not look like this:

She is just here to call attention to my Musician's Bio Page, my brand new Proto PhotoLair, and the Online version of the Goal Scenario 2001 page. And now we have, as of August 15, 2002, a Really Brand New Musician's Resume for your Friendly Neighborhood LairMistress!!

As for our Subsequent Annual Reports, Annual Report: Goal Scenario 2002 was Posted on March 29, 2002; and our newest one, Annual Report: Goal Scenario 2003, was Polished Up and Posted on Tuesday, August 26, 2003!

And Speaking of PhotoLairs, our first Haunted Gallery, featuring nonphoto images used in the Cafepress eStores (see below), is now Up and Running! The Haunted Gallery II, probably still to be expanded, has also Gone Up since this LairMap was last Revised!

*****

I now have not one but FIVE LairShops open online, courtesy of Cafepress.com, including the Latest, The Lair of Cards, our first Premium LairShop, exclusively for prints, cards, stickers and other Paper Stuff! Since our last Update, Artifacts of the Lair, and The LithicLair: Neolithic LairShop, have also been Upgraded to Premium shops. Here are the same set of Links now up on the Home Lair:

Another purpose of the Lair is to promote and offer tributes to my favorite musicians, especially those performing in the Folk, Celtic and World Music genres:

During the most Eventful Summer of 2001, I somehow fell under the spell of an Enchanting local acoustic musician and songwriter by the name of Jason Webley. I now have all of his officially released recordings to date, and have sent a copy of "Against the Night" to my parents, so they can hear what I've been gushing about all summer. But for some reason, my Mom says she's "afraid" to let my Dad hear it (oh, come on, now)!! I also took part in some of Jason's Guerrilla Concert Events. A review of one of them, and the now-Infamous Halloween Concert 2001, are at these links:

As visitors to the Lair have discovered, my Home Lair info items eventually spilled over onto two Archive of the Lair pages. In early September 2002, we consolidated the Archived entries from 2001 in, as you might expect, the Archive Lair 2001. In January 2003, we began to assemble an Archive Lair 2002, in anticipation of the Lair's Second Anniversary! Archive Lair 2003 duly followed suit, Same time, Following year. LATEST UPDATE: Archive Lair 2009 has just been Dredged and Shored Up, with mass Semiannual transfer of Archived posts proceeding immediately Thereafter! Here are LairLinks to our full range of Murky caves:

I write songs too. I've been writing them since High School. Some of them are Highly Controversial. I have a strong paranoia that God has been trying to sabotage my musical career, because my songs would destabilize the Cosmic Equilibrium if they were too widely heard. But I'm in the process of getting them out there anyway. Here is the Index for their Lyrics:

Oh, By the Way...

You may have noticed some Colorful logos on various pages that don't look like the Usual animated gifs. As of April 2008, the Lair is Still participating in Affiliate Programs with Indie-Music.com, while Ending our relationship with Apollo's Axes.com and BooksOnline.com. Hence, we are now updating our pages as regards LogoLinks and Such.

Here is an example of an Indie-Music.com LairLink: Need Gigs? Join Indie-Music.com

Our other Affiliate program can be Checked out at the bottom of this Sitemap; for some reason we're not Allowed to refer to said program explicitly. It's the large LairBanner with the heading "Sacred Traditions: Global Spirit Music."

Needless to say, all LairLurkers and other Friends and Visitors are more than Welcome to take the occasional SideLurk and check out these Online LairShops!

Our Lovely (and still Unfinished) LairLinks Complex

Here at the Lair, I have a fetish for Links pages. I absolutely love them. They are how I find things I wouldn't even know to look for via search engines. I created the LairLinks Complex (which is still a work in progress) not only to aid myself in finding valuable info relating to Music, Freelance Writing, Political Activism, Earning Money online and various Personal Passions, but also to help other people with like interests in their quest for knowledge on the Net. At least, I HOPE somebody besides myself finds these LairLinks pages useful. But I will keep building them, Regardless, following the outline I have developed (give or take a few extra pages!)...

***

Here is the LairLinks Main Index Page. This one, at least, can be said to be Finished. The dimly-lit animated graphic of Stonehenge disappeared from Animation Factory altogether, so I replaced it with an animated Kokopelli figure.

***

We begin, of course, with Music. Here is the link to the LairMusic Index Page. The individual LairMusic Links Pages run as Follows:

LairMusic Organizations & Publications Page
LairMusic Seattle Club Demo Sites Page
LairMusic Indie Resources Page
LairMusic Genres Page
LairMusic Artists Page
LairMusic Open Mics Page
The Shiny New Drumming Page
LairMusic Lyrics & Soundfiles Page

*****

Even after the demise of the Themestream.com site, I continue to be bitten by the Online Freelance Writing bug. Thus the next category of LairLinks pages will be our LairWrit Freelance Writing Resources Directory:
LairWrit Writing Directories Page
Self-Publishing Resources Page

LairWrit Index Page
LairWrit Individual Markets Page
Zines and Zine Directories Page

Clear as Mud, eh...?

Okay, now, does all this help make the Lair easier to navigate? I hope so--I had to take a special crash course in making HTML tables just to make it look halfway Presentable! So come do some exploratory Lurking in the Lairs and their various compartments that you haven't checked out yet, and bring this map and a good flashlight with you! Happy LairLurking!!
