The Internet & Alcohol - A Writer's Challenge.

A clever reminder that challenges for those who attempt to translate experience to words have existed for the entirety of history. I wonder how Thoreau would’ve railed against twitter, though I know that Whitman would’ve been all over Instagram.

Hope From Pete Seeger

More Hope From Pete Seeger

I really like the idea of lots of small leaders, giving the people what they need where they are. Instead of these vast hierarchies that encourage coldness & dehumanization of the community, real local connections, perhaps even local flair besides the Wal-Mart and the pop radio station. Homogenization of culture helps no one, least of all the artists. Rest in Peace Pete.

Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) Is So Wise.

Cat Stevens, now known as Yusuf Islam is a singer-songwriter who converted to Islam in the late 70’s and dedicated himself to philanthropic & educational efforts throughout the Muslim world. He’s being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year, so get at him for Catch Bull at Four & Tea for the Tilleman. Amazing, truly American sound.
