Irish Internet Radio and TV from Dublin, Ireland.

I've finally made a Squidoo lens for The Chieftains. I kept putting it off because I know they've got a ton of CDs out there and there always seemed to be other artists I wanted to build lenses for. Then I got involved in creating web pages at my own Have Pun Will Travel website - see my last post for more information about that.

Yesterday I got caught up on making pages for my website that related to Squidoo lenses, and today just seemed like a good time to get The Chieftains lens made. I organized things a bit differently for creating the lens. I got a discography off Wikipedia and used that to attach ASINs (they're like ISBN numbers for books, but they're specific to Amazon). There were only a few albums for which MP3s also exist, so that made things a bit easier, but then I discovered there are DVDs to go along with about a half dozen albums, so I included those as well.

I've also created some video showcase lenses for Altan, Alasdair Fraser and Flook. The Flook one ended up looking pretty much like the original lens except it's got ten videos instead of two.

Of course, all that meant updating the Celtic Music: Lenses lens as well since that lists all the lenses plus the video showcases. I'll probably be adding video showcases for a bit, since it's interesting to check out all the YouTube videos for the various artists and groups and choose the best ones.
