Jolene – Pensacola.  From Wingate, North Carolina. Jolene’s In the Gloaming, from 1998 is one of my favorite records from one of my favorite years for good alt. country music.  There’s a Son Volt vibe, with hints of early REM.  Great song on a great record.

And when the band plays “Hail to the chief,” They point the cannon at you. River Whyless, because it’s time for anyone who isn’t complicit in this train-wreck to stand together and make it clear that these racist, misogynist oligarchs who are waging war against our country from the inside aren’t representing us, and they … Continue reading Star Spangled Eyes(image)

The EME-DRM war wages on, while those of us who just want Flash and Silverlight to die long-overdue deaths and to continue watching videos in our browsers await our fate. It’s difficult to imagine that any content distributors that are currently distributing unprotected media are going to start using DRM merely because there’s a W3C-approved … Continue reading W3C, Big Media, Cats and Bags(image)
