In 1991, my mother dies at the hands and under the abuses of my step father. I have my
daughter with me out in Missoula and we have been working on the Kicking Up Dust
Cowboy project. I had here for the summer and we had been doing some craft work and
I was going to meetings and putting a lot of time into trying to close a TV deal on our
project. July 24th I get a call from my little brother that my mother had died.
On June 16, of the following year my little brother dies of Aids. I learn much more from
him and my sister about some things that I don't want to put in this part of my story. But
I learned much about child abuse and the sexual abuse of children by their fathers. I was
in such a shock from all the death in my own life, having some problems with money and
my own clear mind learning more about the fact that my mother was killed, I did not
spend much time doing any of the work that I like to dedicate part of life and time to...
I had enough to do to take care of my own.
In 1993, my step-father dies and his crooked lawyers and accounts go about stealing
many millions of dollars from my sister and I. My girlfriend ends up pregnant and I
have to move from Los Angeles to Texas for awhile to begin a fight for my family
estate...soon my Grand mother who raised men for seven years of my youth dies.
I have a little boy in Montana. Do a concert with Waylon Jennings and we hear he is
too drunk to get on the stage and some Rainbow Family hippie dope dealers screw
me in a deal and I go on the run to find out how to get my family estate back in Texas.
The Country attorney of Missoula sides with the crooks and that is a chapter to be
read somewhere else...
May 31, 1994, my little boy Robby Auburn Standley is born in Missoula, Montana
Then my real father dies...In 1995, I am spending a little time in Los Angeles. I have been in
a study during all of this on the evolution of the Internet. Back in 1994, I had worked as the
co producer of the short wave radio broadcast of Willie Nelson's Farm Aid. At this time I got
interested in the Internet. I continue to study the Internet. Then my Grandmother dies who
raised me for seven years of my young days when my father had left.
I put together what ended up being one of the first audio/video webcast ever produced
online. The show was only two months after the first ever webcast done by House of
Blues. You will notice on the flyer and from the article below the show was done for
Children of the Night
On Jan. 24, 1997, my little girl Ashley Delsenia Standley is born in Austin, Texas.
