This is soooo spot on. I live in Upstate NY and most of my younger co-workers devour this stuff. Every song is worse than the last one. It's friggin torment. I have played them a bunch of Haggard, Jones, Waylon & Willie (as well as Yoakam, Lovett, Hayes Carll, Steve Earl, etc.) on my ipod and they honest to gawd have never heard of them (despite them being name-checked on a lot of current songs).  Forget about Roy Acuff, the Carter Family and Bill Monroe.

To be fair, I cannot turn on a current Pop station without being tortured either. Some of it is being too old (60), but I DO find stuff being released to enjoy every week - Lydia Loveless, Jason Isbell, Pieta Brown for example. It's out there, just not on the radio. Really like The Roots, Alabama Shakes, Nicole Atkins, MØ and Goldfrapp  on the Pop and Rock side of things. 

I've given up on Radio, but not on Music.

#Halloween without #TheCramps is like Thanksgiving without food poisoning. Thank you Lux & Ivy for being the Johnny & June of Psychobilly. We miss you terribly, but will remember always. Stay sick, turn blue.

Nothing says #HappyHalloween like Screamin' Jay Hawkins. "Whistling Past The Graveyard" from his 1994 album 'Somethin' Funny Going On' (it was produced by my friend the late great Buddy Blue - he also plays guitar here)  #Halloween

This is blowing up all over right-wing twitter this morning. They are quite certain that this proves definitively that POTUS and State Dept were lying from the git-go. Don't have FOX on my cable, but imagine this is all over that, too...

Space shuttle Endeavour is on its way from Los Angeles International Airport to the California Science Center in Exposition Park. The 12-mile route, which includes major thoroughfares such as Manchester, Crenshaw and Martin Luther King Jr. boulevards, looks radically different than it did months ago. Power lines have been lifted and trees removed. Nearly 2,700 steel plates were placed on streets to better distribute Endeavour’s weight and protect the century-old infrastructure underneath.

Introduction
Gender: Male

Age: Older than Richard Alpert

Quotes: "The Virtuous Life is its own punishment" - TMGL 2001

"What's the ugliest part of your body? ... I think it's your MIND" FZ 1968

"The pigs are walking! The pigs are walking!" LA(Phd) 2004

Just in case anyone is interested - "The Most Gracious Loser" is a handle I adopted in 2001 as a sort of back-handed tribute to Al Gore and Richard Nixon.  It is a reference to the mythology of the times that, following their respective very close election results, Al Gore was characterized as a 'Sore Loser' and Richard Nixon, a 'Gracious Loser'.  A closer reading of the machinations of 1960 tell a different story if one cares to peer behind the curtain a little.
