CELEBRATING A MILLION AND A HALF VISITORS TODAY!

February 21, 2010

I want to thank everyone who visited Artie Wayne on the Web and brought the total visitors to over a million and a half!

This site is devoted to music of the sixties to the present, our evolving pop culture, and whatever might be spinning around in my head at the time. I’ve always enjoyed turning people on and pissing people off and now I have my own forum to spread the word on the internet. In addition to that, over the past year I’ve used the power of blogging against the tyranny of some music business accounting practices, social network scamming, and the blatant disregard of consumer rights!

For example, for weeks I’d been calling and complaining to Time-Warner cable for sending me picture and sound out of synch’, which forced me to watch “Dancing With The Stars” with everyone dancing off  beat. As soon as I blogged about the problem and threatened to upload video tapes of what I was experiencing to YouTube, within six hours the problem was corrected…as my friend Paul Williams once said, “We’ve Only Just Begun”.

I hope you’ll continue to drop by to be informed, enlightened, and hopefully entertained.

Regards, Artie Wayne https://artiewayne.wordpress.com/about-artie-wayne/

    Hey Artie,
    The Andy Rooney of Rock? No!
    Perhaps the Pied Piper of Rock or the Steve Jobs of Rock (Always coming up with something new).
    Your subjects are always unique and irresistible.
    Well done Artie,
    Paul


  38. Hey Artie,

  40. Ira Howard Says:

    Hey Artie,
    I love to listen to Andy Rooney but he doesn’t know half the stuff you do. When I grow up, I hope my website attracts at least a fraction of the hits you’re enjoying and I’ll call mine a success. Great info you’re sending out. Mazel Tov.
    Ira H.

  46. Lesley Gore Says:

    Congratulations, Artie. 1,500,000 is a lot of people. Keep up the great work. Lesley

  47. John Braheny Says:

    Artie, You get those hits because you’re a consummate story teller and because we can track your personal history in tandem with the history of rock and roll. You were there, you’re honest about both your failures and triumphs. You da man! Proud to be your friend.

  50. elaine o Says:

    You’ve given so much, wishing you

  51. Country Paul Says:

    Hey, good buddy – have a quick and total recovery!

  52. Ciji (Portis) Gardner Says:

    Take care of yourself Cousin Wayne. I hope you’re back in action soon:) We need your blog!

  53. Steve Dworkin Says:

    Hi Artie, Always enjoy reading your site. By the way, they have these programs where you talk into a mic and it translates what you say into text, so you don’t have to use your finger. Of course, what comes out as text is nothing close to what you said.

  54. Bobbi Cowan Says:

    Hi
    Artie…Maybe its time to get one of those voice-activated machines, so all you have to do is speak to your computer and it goes up on your blog.
    Will miss your take on the events of our lives, but I’m sure your finger will heal and you’ll be back banging it out soon.
    Meanwhile, happy Passover to your Jewish half, and a lovely Easter to the rest of you.
    Love,
    Bobbi

  55. Mary Weiss Says:

    Hi Artie:

    Congratulation! I hope you are on the mend
    shortly.
    I always enjoy checking out your site.
    I wish you a very speedy recovery.

    Best,
    Mary

  56. Sharon Says:

    GEE!!You’re supposed to slit your WRIST, not your finger!!Who will I harrass until you get better???


  57. Hi Artie, Congrats on a million and a half. Once your finger heals, who knows maybe you’ll double your record. Happy Spring, Peggy/The Angels

  58. Eddie Hodges Says:

    Jeez!!! I remember when we were talking about only a million visitors!!! Congrats, Artissimo. I knew you’d get here. Love and Peace,

    Eddie Hodges

  59. Steve Owen Says:

    Artie,
    Congrats on the great success of your blog..YOU have no
    idea all the great information you have imparted about
    the music biz! I love reading all about it and your adventures, things that happened and all the people
    you have interacted with….
    Looking forward to more “stuff!”

    Best,

    Steve Owen (Steveo)

  60. Andrew C. Jones Says:

    Well, Artie, what can I say that hasn’t already been said, and said better? Congrats on one-and-a-half million, here’s to two-and-two-half million soon, and hope your thumb heals up quick.


  61. Artie I don’t know how you do it. Are you sure there aren’t three of you?!

    Keep on keepin’ on,
    –Phil M.


  62. I’m not sure exactly why but this web site is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later
    on and see if the problem still exists.
