Sturgill Simpson – “Metamodern Sounds In Country Music”

I’m no proponent of country music, generally, but there is something about this album that has it in the heaviest rotation lately. This song is the one that sold me on him. It gets weird and not especially country in parts. The rest of the album is lyrically odd, too, but runs more early-to-mid-70’s musically. I love it.

Blog Birthday

I took several hours on the 4th of July in 2003 to install Movable Type and start my blog. I don’t have all of those old MT posts formatted and imported to this Worpdress install but looking back through the internet archive, I kinda want to.


It took *forever* to get that milk clip art the right size.
