Patriot Convention

Why I Can Vote With a Clear Conscience

This is the one election that in all of our history is a fork in the road that we had better choose wisely.

This next president will appoint several Supreme Court justices.

That alone should be enough to make everyone sit up and take notice.

If HRC is allowed to stack that Supreme Court, the country is gone.

It is that serious. There is no turning back, none.

We will not have the luxury to say, we can hang for another 4 years.

The communist planks are all in place…

...that ball is at the finish line and just needs that last punt over the goal posts and it is game over.

That one issue will have ramifications for decades.

Your children and grandkids will experience the full weight of that one issue alone.

Alan Lomax Archives

No Depression

"The recent web debut of the Alan Lomax Archives channel is a treasure trove for musicians and listeners of all types of American vernacular music. The clips all were filmed between 1978 and 1985, mostly in North Carolina, Mississippi, Texas, and Louisiana. The material reflects Mr. Lomax's fervent desire to record local music varietals before the onslaught of mainstream media homogenization. Many of the clips were from a TV production "American Patchwork" that eventually aired on PBS in 1991.

The most well known musician in the series is R.L. Burnside. Here he's playing a scorching electric tune solo in front of a barb wire fence. It just gets better after that. The material of course ranges far and wide with sacred harp, gut bucket blues, NOLA brass, folk ballads, all in abundance.

Most of the musicians likely never made a recording afterward, but due to Lomax's calling, their songs have been preserved. This channel eventually leads to the even deeper collection at Cultural Equity. Clearly the material is staggeringly unique. Take some time this cold winter to bask in the warmth of some hot blues."
Reminds me of playing pool listening to Leadbelly at EHS.
