    Well, I'm kind of bored tonight, so here's something. Recovering Bassist's cover of "Hurricane" that had the Ponchartrain in it reminded me that I had begun practicing this song for some past season but didn't use it. If I ever use it for a season, I'll probably overdub some melodica to try and mimic the accordion. Original by Lucinda Williams, but I'm more familiar with Emmylou Harris' cover of it. Brief commentary at the end to explain what the French terms mean.

    I realized when watching this video that a needle scar is clearly visible in my right arm. This is not from drug use. I have an identical scar in my left arm as well. They are from the late 1990s when I used to regularly donate plasma for some extra money.

    Earlier this week I found out that Hüsker Dü drummer Grant Hart had died of kidney cancer. Like many dirtbag Gen-Xers, Hüsker Dü made me feel less alone during my difficult formative years. I had an opportunity to book a show for Grant at a time when booking shows was the last thing I should be doing... and this happened. I always hoped I'd have a chance to do right by him, but I never did.

    Here's a bonus for the Drug Season. A Jimmy C. Newman song, written by Tom T Hall from 1969. This 45's of this song were actually recalled after complaints from country radio stations, and from the FFA, both of whom were offended by this one! lol

    In August I saw Lucinda Williams live in concert for the first time. A magnificent night.

    Here's her original "Like A Rose" from her third studio album, "Lucinda Williams" (1988).
