Dan Corkill

Welcome to my personal web pages. (Umass-related information can be found at http://cics.umass.edu/~corkill).

Music

I listen to a lot of music, mostly rock and popular songs from the early '60s onward. I enjoy singing, too: in Amherst LSSE's very casual Come As You Are Chorus and with the significantly larger Rock Voices. I briefly “toured” with Barry Manilow (sang in his backup choir at Foxwoods in March 2015).

Song of the Day

Starting in May 2015, I began selecting and sharing a song each day on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Here is the list of all my #SOTD selections to date.

Karaoke

I began singing karaoke in the Fall of 2015 and have become a regular under the name D¢. Here is the list of songs that I have attempted to date.

The Tiers

The Tiers was a four-person rock cover band operating out of Omaha, Nebraska in the late 1960s. Yes, I was a member, so check us out...

Pinball

I enjoy playing, restoring, and maintaining pinball machines. I'm always on the lookout for places to play pinball around the Amherst, Massachusetts area. Drop me an e-mail at dancorkill@comcast.net. By the way, did I mention that I enjoy playing pinball?

Heartland Farm & Horses

Others in my family are into horses.

Weather in South Amherst

I maintain a personal weather station (PWS) in South Amherst, MA. Here are the detailed weather connditions in South Amherst.

Three-Player “Dummy Hand” Spades

I enjoy playing card games, especially Contract & Duplicate Bridge and Spades. Sometimes it's hard to find a fourth for these games, and I've become particularly fond of “Dummy Hand” Spades, a 3-player, cut-throat version of regular 4-player Spades.
