Cracker Barrel

A sadness hung in the air of the Cracker Barrel in Pascagoula Mississippi. Everyone sensing they had been bamboozled but not ready to admit it to themselves. 



Leadership is a mater of intelligence, trustworthiness, humaneness, courage, and sternness.

Kiss Me Son of God

The search continues.

At first, I thought it was ‘Minimum Wage’. Then ‘You and Your Racist Friend’. Both deserving of further exploration.

But in the category of life imitating art, tonight I believe the winner is ‘Kiss Me Son of God’.

I built a little empire out of some crazy garbage
Called the blood of the exploited working class
But they’ve overcome their shyness
Now they’re calling me “Your Highness”
And the world screams, “Kiss me, son of God”

You take a listen and decide for yourself.

Refurbished Gibson L-00


Just realizing that I posted the before images of the Gibson L-00 but never got back to post the after pics.

I can’t say enough about the work that Elliot John-Conry and Dan Erlewine did. Its not just the way it looks but the tone and soul they brought back to life. True craftsmen.
