“ I am at a loss to figure out why a person would need to carry a firearm into the courthouse or any other government building, for that matter, that alone is a recipe for disaster. This is a disaster looking for a place to happen, not if, but where and when. ”

Happy 82st birthday, Roy Clark! Here he is playing Alabama Jubilee on the Porter Wagoner Show.  His guitar skills are insane. Also, watch him SLAY Malaguena in this cameo appearance on The Odd Couple.

***Porter’s laugh at the beginning of his video is amazing. His Nudie suit was always on point**

(Allerbammer)

An underrated classic country musician.

SPIDEY SUPER STORIES #9 (June 1975)
Art by Win Mortimer & Mike Esposito
Words by Jean Thomas

A couple of fun facts. The first, this story was based on an Electric Company script written by Joss Whedon’s dad, Tom Whedon. The second, flag pins were approximately 40% larger back then. 

Hope everyone is having a great Easter!

I love finding the book I’m looking for at the library; often today, it might be a graphic novel, or a big biography. But, Fulton County needs to refocus its budget to better support librarians. Atlanta Fulton Public Library is firing more librarians this month. Let Fulton County  Commissioners know, people: librarians work for VOTERS. todaysdocument:

It’s National Library Week!
Remember being this excited to check out a book? (Maybe you still are.)

From “The Day the Books Went Blank”, a 1961 educational film intended to show the importance of maintaining quality libraries, from The Library Extension Agencies of the six New England States.


The theme of this year’s National Library Week is “Lives Change.”  How has a library, or librarian, changed your life?

Ever since the ’50s, Wilson has proudly carried aloft the moldering, web-festooned banner first hoisted by Charles Addams.” – Paul De Filippo, The Washington Post

Our latest Backstage at Mountain Stage video with Loudon Wainwright is not to be missed. And also, not for the easily offended. Listen to the entire segment here.

That’s our Loudo! [Language. Not for the language sensitive…] Fine for the musically sensitive!
