I haven’t been playing the old guitar too much lately, but that pattern may be changing. I saw a video of Mr. Boise Song Talk that was real good and inspiring. And last weekend some of the ‘Coffee Cats’ got together to play a few songs.Read more "six string"
This is a continuation of my post from earlier today. I’m jotting down some things I remembered from last night’s Bridge School benefit concert. I left off in between sets, and while Letter and I were away from our seats on another stroll around the amphitheater we heard a few cheers and people shouting. He […]Read more "when the dream came"
The Buffalo Springfield at the Bridge School Benefit, October 23rd 2010. The show started around 5pm, with a light rain falling.

Neil Young Archives, Volume 1 was released this week, and from what I can gather it appears to be quite a project. He’s released this in multiple formats; CDs, and DVD or Blu-ray. The DVD/Blu-ray sets include lots of additional Archives content – photos, video, and his 1974 film Journey Through the Past. And Blu-ray […]Read more "hello mr. soul"
