(no subject)

A morning work out and getting utilities scheduled for hook up has improved my mood greatly. And hey I only will have to go a week without internet. I can do a week. Right?

hey atlanta folk.

So my godfather Sparky and his wife Rhonda are playing in Atlanta soon. They will be at Eddie's Attic on Thursday, December 6, 2007. They are blues and folk musician. If your in town and have a chance go and check them out. They really are quite good. Go see them and tell them McCoy told you about the show.

I listened to sparky alot when I was growing up. I grew to love the music. His mix of blues and folk and what they used to call "negro spirituals". The music is just is compelling. I heard a lot of the music in O Brother Where Art Thou long before the film ever showed. I looked into Robert Johnson because of him and began my love of blues. He had a lot to do with my love history as well.

pretty much if you like music and stories go see him.

here are a couple of links to check out.
