First of a new feature, and a farewell to Steve Jobs

Why the sevens? Mostly because it is just a midpoint between 5 and 10 – which have both been done.

So I will just take a list…rattle off seven things, and hopefully you will get some insights about me. You might also pick up some cool things that you like as well.

Seven Songs I Currently Love

  1. We’ll Be the Light – Dirty Guv’nahs
  2. So So Long – The Damn Quails
  3. Close Every Valve to Your Bleeding Heart – Ha Ha Tonka
  4. Stopping By – Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit
  5. Prettiest Thing – The Avett Brothers
  6. Remain – The Great Divide
  7. The Road Less Traveled – Cory Morrow

I also wanted to take a moment to express my thoughts on Steve Jobs. My friends over at Wilbert News Strategies shared an article on Facebook today from PRWeek talking about how Steve acted as his own PR guyand pitched cover stories to Time Magazine among others. He was definitely a brilliant mind, and will be sorely missed by many.

I really loved this commercial.  So long Steve.
Update: Betanews has a version of the Think Different spot with Seve Jobs voicing I like it better than Richard Dreyfuss. (a warning on the betanews link – the video quality leaves a bit to be desired)

Splice the Music! – Justin Townes Earle

So…Garden and Gun posted a video today from Justin Townes Earle,

10 notes into the song, and I knew I had to have the album.  It is really great!  (and worth the 2.99 at Amazon)

He has an amazing family background. Also a friend of Mike McClure.  I will be getting his other albums ASAP.

Also, everything seems to be falling into place.  Life is not too bad right now!

Goofy hat, but the post needed a pic!
