Hi Zoobie,

I think that it is great that you market your websites so much. Stick with it. The one thing I would say is that I think everyone on this site who is going to go to one of your websites already has, so you might want to start advertising them some where else instead.

Hi Mickey -

Well, this consists of several streets, sites, and alleys dedicated to busking and street performing video and related exposť.

If you wander around Busker alley, off to the left you'll see Freaky street.

If you're really lucky, you may see thru the fog a very mysterious Phantom alley.

I think you get the idea...

Do the performers on this site know that you've used their material? They're not even credited.

In a quick browse, I saw:
Ed Stander
Lee Zimmerman
Master Lee
John Higby
Reid Belstock
Bill Ferguson
Neal Rempel
Dan Looker
and several others, but none of them had any credits.

Plus, those video clips are at least 10 years old.

Seems kind of odd to me.

I didn't give them credit...
I gave them cash...which is much better.

It's a start...but if you and others wish to try to name some of the over 1000+ buskers and street performers clips from 4 continents, be my ghost.

What's currently displayed is a mere fraction of what will take years.

I'll entertain names and suggestions at zoobie007@yahoo.com

Who's on first?
Is that me?

Really? Some of the performers featured on your sites are friends of mine and I can easily verify this.


As you probably know, Zoobie, a performer spends his entire career trying to create and hone a unique identity for his or her self and the respective act. Many would find it a bit insulting to see their work credited to "this busker" or "a busker."


I agree with Jim that you should credit performers by name.

It may take you a little bit of time, but it's the least you can do.

Here's a sneeky peek of ghostly images with those crazy buskers and street performers in Phantom Alley. Simply right click and 'save target as' the 10.7mb link below. This allows you to continue surfing.

Munster Madness

Who are these munsters?
Enjoy!
