THE END OF AN ERA... we are almost at 2010

Well yall,

from year 2000-2004 we gave yall www.kwinmd.com that ended.
from year 2004-2009 we gave yall www.mckomandoni.com that ended.

For about 10 years we been using www.garageband.com and www.geocities.com to showcase our music.

S.O.A.z was started by Va'Les, Omega Redd and me. Va'Les came up with the name and the 3 of us made it go as far as we could take it.

I paid the money to get the domain name mckomandoni.com for 5 years... and that website died. Just like mp3.com & I am surprised www.garageband.com is still alive.

Now Reverbnation and soundclick are the best places to put up music, also a new one, podomatic is pretty good too....

I came over here to see if this was still up...

THA HOOD/ BBS on REMOTE is stil standing after all these years of websites goin out of business.

Check this out, this is what happened to geocities:

On October 26, 2009, your GeoCities site will no longer appear on the Web, and you will no longer be able to access your GeoCities account and files. When visitors go to your GeoCities web address after October 26, they'll see a page letting them know that GeoCities has closed.

If you upgraded to Web Hosting before GeoCities closed, you were able to redirect your GeoCities web address to send your visitors to your new address on the Web, a personalized domain name (such as widgetdesigns.com) that you selected when you signed up for your new plan. This redirect will remain available as long as you keep your Web Hosting site.

Please note that you must have upgraded before October 26 to redirect your GeoCities web address to a Web Hosting account.

I used to use geocities to design the pages of both www.kwinmd.com (from 2000-2004) and www.mckomandoni.com (2004-2009) and also when I made www.omegaredd.net (from 2003-2005) and www.paullove.net (from 2002-2004) I used GEOCITIES because it was FREE....


Now they are tryin to sell it. My question is, why now?

Back in the early days 2000-2005 there wasn't as many myspace, ning, facebook kind of sites to make you a website page at, back then, they would have made more money sellin this.

Now, when there's a whole bunch of places you can put shit up on the internet, they decide to sell this....

I first heard of GEOCITIES ( a Yahoo product) when I went on the website for UGF / Mad Flavor Ent (THE LABEL I WAS SIGNED TO BACK IN 2001). UGF / Mad Flavor used Geocities web sites....

I decided I could do the same shit they do, and made my own. After tellin Va'les & Omega Redd my story of cuttin out (the middle man) and takin the LABEL out the picture and doin all the shit they did for their artists, Va'Les said we are Self Owned Artists, we are S.O.A.z.......That's kind of how the concept came up....


That GEOCITIES shit is funny though...Glad that I stopped promotin mckomandoni.com and made www.thesoaz.ning.com the main focus....of all my promo, that's now finished.

your boy
