‘At the end of that long white line …’

Any Waylon fans out there?

Waylon Jennings himself is no longer among us, but his ghost certainly haunts the sound of one Sturgill Simpson, a Kentucky boy who takes the country sound and puts some strange twists to it. The song highlighted below comes from an album titled “Metamodern Sounds in Country Music,” which gives you some idea of what he’s up to from time to time.

Enjoy, and I hope everyone has a great Passover and Easter. And for those two young ladies traveling that long white line at the moment cross country, come on home girls. Dad will have the barbecue ready by the time you get here.

Tom - "money is not required to buy one necessity of the soul"


Go to the homeless in downtown Atlanta, give them that message, and then report back to us, unless the beatings you get render you unable to speak.

Morning

Off we go in the soft-shoe morning

To trip the light fantastic,

Off we go with the wind’s melody

As we spin around again.

Sliding and gliding, sway by sway,

All is done with care.

Minute to minute, day by day,

It’s Morning’s voice we hear.

Hearts with one purpose alone
Through summer and winter, seem
Enchanted to a stone
To trouble the living stream.
The horse that comes from the road,
The rider, the birds that range
From cloud to tumbling cloud,
Minute by minute change.
A shadow of cloud on the stream
Changes minute by minute;
A horse-hoof slides on the brim;
And a horse plashes within it
Where long-legged moor-hens dive
And hens to moor-c*o*c*ks call.
Minute by minute they live:
The stone's in the midst of all.

WB Yeats, late one I think. Probably one of the ones predicting the Irish Uprising on Easter 1916.

Yep. 

Too long a sacrifice
Can make a stone of the heart.
O when may it suffice?
That is heaven's part, our part
To murmur name upon name,
As a mother names her child
When sleep at last has come
On limbs that had run wild.
What is it but nightfall?
No, no, not night but death.
Was it needless death after all?
For England may keep faith
For all that is done and said.
We know their dream; enough
To know they dreamed and are dead.
And what if excess of love
Bewildered them till they died?
I write it out in a verse --
MacDonagh and MacBride
And Connolly and Pearse
Now and in time to be,
Wherever green is worn,
Are changed, changed utterly:
A terrible beauty is born.

Yeah hard to say. Probably much the same in terms of anger, but in a different genre perhaps.

Watched a beautiful tribute to John Paul II today. MY favorite Pope.

You are priests, not social or political leaders. Let us not be under the illusion that we are serving the Gospel through an exaggerated interest in the wide field of temporal problems.

The unworthy successor of Peter who desires to benefit from the immeasurable wealth of Christ feels the great need of your assistance, your prayers, your sacrifice, and he most humbly asks this of you.

I'm just wondering if he's advocating we vote differently or engage in some sort of revolution.

@straker -- Probably both.  Especially if the Kenyan Usurper-in-Chief is still on his throne......  (eyes:rolling)

Seems that there is a document enshrined in some fancy building in DC that spells it out pretty clearly.....


"That whenever any form of govt becomes destructive to these ends (Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness), it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it and institute a new government, lay its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness"


Anyone have any trouble understanding this?  Lays it out pretty well.

anyone seen anything from Yakker after this seemingly alcohol induced rant?

@skydog12 --  I wish I had a picture of my grandmother on my father's side in one of her Crowns!  She was a stringent Baptist and you know how those Baptist women LOVE their Crowns!!  The Crown had to match the Purse and it had to match the Shoes.  It didn't matter if it matched the dress!  The Crown was the show, everything else was inconsequential!  A day like today, Easter Sunday! -- She'd have her Crown made weeks in advance; scheming and plotting with her "Crown Lady" to make the most eloquent, (sometimes the BIGGEST), and substantial Crown to show off.  Sometimes, I'd wonder how her neck held up some of those Crowns! You wanna see some fierce Sunday competition?  Go to any Black Baptist Church on these three Sundays:  Easter, Mother's Day, and Women's Day.  That's when the REAL show/service begins!

Crowns are cool.


I saw some good ones today. 


Lunch at the Buford Farmers Market.


Cafeteria style, they sell by the pound, so you can just point at what you want, rather than try and pronounce it.


We Albanians can f up some Korean words.

@skydog12 --  Wow! I thought LA'ers (Los Angeles), were weird, but NYC takes the prize!  I don't get the MEN in an Easter Bonnet parade though, (although 3 men had the BEST most inventive bonnets I've ever seen); it seemed like there were more men than ladies!  A few of the guys just looked like they were trolling for dates though -- that's a new all time "different" way to get a date -- showing up at an Easter Parade in your Easter Bonnet tying to make a Love Match, or at least a hook up for the afternoon!

@gotalife  Fox has obama at 45% approval and that's probably generous.
