recourses for the malignant and benign

just trying to find these little things in this life and the next one, those small irrationalities, or misplaced and mispelled catch phrases, tiny indsicretions that had you running and falling on that day to day

Johnny Cash talks about the Gospel in this lost, animated interview. 

Another goodie from blankonblank!

I have to admit that’s pretty awesome. Would never have thought here would be a cartoon Johnny Cash.

Cafe Du Monde

And there. Might be burning up outside though in the NO.

coachella:

It’s like that y’all - Day 1 is a wrap!

Wish I was there. Seems like a really cool festival. And to see the reunification for sure.

“If you have to ask what jazz is, you’ll never know.” Louis Armstrong (via flameinthebloodstream)

That’s what I’m talking about Louis.

The Eagle Band.

*When Buddy Bolden went insane in 1907, Frankie Dusen took over Buddy Bolden’s Band and renamed it the Eagle Band after the Eagle Saloon at Perdido and South Rampart Street in the Storyville district of New Orleans. The band was very popular in New Orleans between 1907 and 1917 and reportedly continued to play much of the same repertoire as when Bolden was the leader of the group. Many of the musicians that passed through the Eagle Band in the Teens would become the chief proponents of Hot Jazz during the 1920s. The band made no recordings, but The Eagle Band was the link between the dawn of Jazz as represented by Buddy Bolden and the cultural phenomenon that jazz would become during the 1920s. Sidney Bechet remembered the band this way;

 “The Eagle Band was much more of a barrelhouse band, a real gutbucket band, a low down band which really played the blues, and those slow tempos. To tell the true the Eagle Band was the only band that could play the blues. That was really a band”.

Gutter music that’s what like. Some funky butt junk.

E.J. Bellocq’s Portraits of Storyville 1912

A mysterious man Mr. Belloq was indeed. But what great pictures he took. I wonder what else he took. Ha.

Down The Line, Basin Street, New Orleans, 1908
‘In 1908 the train terminal at Canal and Basin streets, one block from Storyville, was completed. To reach the station, trains travelled past the Basin Street bordellos, where the (often naked) prostitutes waved to the passengers from balconies.’ 

Been reading about Storyville recently. Oh what a time syphillis and cocaine cues all ills. You can count on that one.

"The blues to me is like being very sad, very sick, going to church, being very happy. There’s two kinds of blues: there’s happy blues and then sad blues. I don’t think I’ve ever sang the same way twice, I don’t think I’ve ever sang the same tempo. One night’s a little bit slower, the next night’s a little bit brighter, depends on how I feel. I don’t know, the blues is sort of mixed up thing, you just have to feel it. Everything I do sing is part of my life."

Happy 99th birthday to one of the greatest voices of the 20th century:
Billie Holiday (April 7, 1915 - July 17, 1959)

Happy birthday Lady Day. Has to be one of my favorites of all time. Strangely angelic ephemeral voice.
