    San Fran is solving their issues

    Sad. Sounds like the local prof's plans for some of Mark Twain's greatest works. The irony, of course, with AF and Orwell is huge in that the manipulation of language and thus communication to stamp out troublesome ideas is one of the big notions proffered in 1984. But kind of appropriate given...

    Saw Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit tonight

    Cool. It was opening night for the venue. They have a bunch of local bands today and Robt Cray plays tomorrow but I don't think it is open to we regular citizens. It's a great venue except it is outdoor and rather than the terrain sloping towards the stage it slopes away once beyond a large...

    The Round Up Dilemma

    There is an absolutely huge solar farm in Byron, GA--home of the sister concert ot Woodstock known as the Atlanta Pop Festival in 1969--with acre upon acre of panels. Every time I pass it I wonder how they keep weeds and grass beneath them controlled and how they even cut the grass. You'd need...

    Saw Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit tonight

    Interesting. I can never figure out that fam tree math stuff. I think I was in my mid 30s before I figured out the dif in an aunt and a niece or brother in law. They were all just "relatives" somehow. My mother's side are Jackson and Smith so ascertaining who might be one's relatives with those...

    Greenville, AL. He's really good, Bill. I'm not expert on the guy but he just doesn't seem to write any bad songs kind of like James McMurtry but much better live and a top notch player himself. Very literate. Check him out.

    Is it the one you got at Monica Lewinsky's yard sale? Don't know if you know this but it had a stain on it.

    Fried Green Tomatoes is a good movie

    That movie was shot in Juliette, GA right near my folks house and not far from where the Allman Bros owned an old farm house back in the day. I think it is the one on the Brothers and Sisters album cover. The town now is a destination for lots of weekend bikers and has a little restaurant there...

    Saw Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit tonight

    I hear ya. It was about two blocks from my house at the debut of a new amphitheater they just opened on campus. A friend gave me a ticket. I usually avoid concert situations and would rather see a band in a more intimate setting such as a club or listening room but there is something about a...

    Saw Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit tonight

    Really good. JI was rocking the top w p90s and a couple with HBs. His other guitarist played Teles, Firebirds and SGs. Really good band if you ever get a chance to see them. Some excellent slide work and his song writing is superb. I was really impressed. I had seen them once...

    Trying to get back to the best a man can be..

    It's all just too funny. There's an ad for something--I can't recall what--where a woman is making some pretty cool sculptures out of used motor bike tires. In her monologue she says something like, "The world is starting to change and I want to be a part of that." I'd like to know when was the...

    Tarantino's newest: see it!

    I look forward to seeing it. QT often has those fractured time lines and, as said above, parts that seem to meander but I think that is part of his charm and, really, that's how life itself typically goes if only in our heads. By today's standards the Manson crew's body count was minuscule. But...

    Well, I was in BK anyway...

    When my son was about ten or eleven or so he first started trying to play music and write songs. The first one I remember was called Meat Eating Herbivore. I think the lyrics said something like.... "Creeping, creeping, creeping...pounce!" Thought it was a great idea. Deep cover.:laugh2:
