Currently rewatching the X-Files and blogging about it. (This "project" is on temporary hiatus, but will hopefully resume soon. Hopefully.)
if you just want to hear a playlist of my audio posts, well guess what, you can do that here.
I also run:
trouble minx, a tumblr about Spoon
Avedon & Erté, which posts one classic Richard Avedon photo and one Erté art deco masterpiece a day, or at least it does when I get around to filling the queue.
Ask a question
Every man knows that he is a sissy compared to Johnny Cash. —Bono
From our beloved* Nashville Scene (thanks, Lauren!)
Here’s the joke and its limp punchline: “Remember when Ronald Reagan was president? We had Bob Hope. We had Johnny Cash. Think about where we are today. We have got President Obama. But we have no hope and we have no cash.”
Get it? President Obama’s that dude with the funny foreign-sounding name — not like the old days, when real Amurkins had names everyone could pronounce, like Johnny Cash. We don’t remember Republicans always pronouncing it with such fondness, since the Cash name tended to stand for nuisances such as minority rights and prison reform. But that name is sacrosanct here in Music City, and Pith hates to hear it besmirched by a political opportunist — especially one who claims that he’s an agent of change, after 18 years anchored like a tick on the legislative hide.
The 10 billionth song was “Guess Things Happen That Way” by Johnny Cash, bought by Louie Sulcer of Woodstock, Ga. He will receive a $10,000 gift card.
Though I wish that 10K had come my way, at least it happened to someone with good taste.
Also: Louie Sulcer is 71 years old, which makes this story even more fantastic.
Watching Walk the Line, can you tell?
