This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!


3 Day Fast is next week! We’ll learn words like “Autophagy”

143 days until EXIT PLAN

Last Thursday, I talked about ordering some records and I got them. In particular, I got my Lead Belly record from Third Man Records – Huddie (hyoo-dee) “Lead Belly” Ledbetter.

Via Third Man Records: Louisiana delta native Huddie “Lead Belly” Ledbetter is the master of twelve-string blues guitar. His story is one of high-highs and low-lows, from serving stints in prison after killing a man in a fight for a woman’s heart, but then eventually earning early release by entertaining his fellow prison-mates and penning a song for the governor, thus cementing his reputation of singing his way out of prison. His songs have been widely covered by artists such as Elvis, Nirvana, Johnny Cash, and the Grateful Dead.

Played at the beginning of today’s babble was Nirvana covering Lead Belly’s “Where Did You Sleep Last Night?” during the television series – “MTV Unplugged.” The show was recorded on November 18, 1993 and then aired on the cable television network MTV on December 16, 1993. MTV Unplugged in New York is the live album from Nirvana which was released on November 1, 1994. Kurt Cobain had died earlier that year in 1994 on April 5th.

Play the clip of show.
