Two Things

Artist Dork found my Jesse and James Pokémon socks in her laundry. She threw them at me and literally say “Looks like Team Rocket’s blasting off again.” *sigh*

The newest neighbor to the hood is playing his bluegrass folk country shit very loudly. I think it’s time to welcome him to the neighborhood and blare my Welcome to the Madness playlist. Quiet Riot, anyone?

Elsewhere University- Feathers

Like a whole bunch of other people, I saw @charminglyantiquated ’s Elsewhere University Comic and got SUPER INSPIRED. And since she’s so generously encouraging other people to play in her sandbox, I present ‘Feathers’.  EDIT : PART 2 HERE

You go to Elsewhere University. You’ve been going to Elsewhere University for (years and years and years and years) for three years now. You know how things are. You’re not an RA, but… Mm, you could have been.

Might still be. Aren’t yet.

This is your junior year (you think). You know how things are. You carry salt in one pocket, iron in another, trinkets to bargain away in your book bag, offerings in your purse, pearls around your neck.

Marty Stuart talking about Clarence White’s original B-Bender.

In addition to being Marty fucking Stuart, the man is also one of country music’s greatest historians. Listening to him document how he came about acquiring this sacred instrument is a treasure, and his reverence for CW and his family makes this video even sweeter.  

There’s not much better in the entire world, Niall thinks, than early mornings on a horse farm. Of course, being set in the heart of bluegrass country out in Lexington, Kentucky, doesn’t hurt. It’s early in the day yet, but he can hear the start of the horses waking up downstairs. They probably heard him get up, and, true to form, immediately expect breakfast.

In A Moment

Scroll I through bluegrass country
eye alone and on a lookout
drowned in spirits staring at clouds.
Among mechanical waves crushing
on concrete shores lined with glass and grit.
A lonely whistle howls down that line,
a sole engineer earns his wage.
A glass mostly empty for now
but my soul awake and full of glee.
Why but for I am soon to be free.
