I'm really enjoying A Prairie Home Companion this season. As a longtime fan, I have not been tuning in the past few years. And the times that I did hear it, the show was a far cry to what it was many years ago. In a near genius move, Garrison Keillor selected Chris Thile to succeed him as host - and he is knocking it out of the park. The show has returned to 'must listen' status each week. Here's a clip from last week...
Three days before he died, John Lennon talked with 'Rolling Stone' for nine hours. For the first time, we present this extraordinary interview
(From the article): The whole universe is a wheel, right? Wheels going round and round. They're my own wheels, mainly, but, you know, watching meself is like watching everybody else. And I watch meself through my child too. The thing about the child is . . . it's still hard. I'm not the greatest dad on Earth, I'm doing me best. But I'm a very irritable guy, and I get depressed. I'm up and down, up and down, and he's had to deal with that too – withdrawing from him and then giving, and withdrawing and giving. I don't know how much it will affect him in later life, but I've been physically there. We're all selfish, but I think so-called artists are completely selfish: To put Yoko or Sean or the cat or anybody in mind other than meself – me and my ups and downs and my little tiddly problems – is a strain. Of course, there's a reward and a joy, but still . . .

Herbert Jeffrey "Herbie" Hancock (born April 12, 1940) is an American pianist, keyboardist, bandleader and composer. As part of Miles Davis's Second Great Quintet, Hancock helped to redefine the role of a jazz rhythm section and was one of the primary architects of the "post-bop" sound. He was one of the first jazz musicians to embrace music synthesizers and funk music (characterized by syncopated drum beats). Hancock's music is often melodic and accessible; he has had many songs "cross over" and achieved success among pop audiences. His music embraces elements of funk and soul while adopting freer stylistic elements from jazz. In his jazz improvisation, he possesses a unique creative blend of jazz, blues, and modern classical music, with harmonic stylings much like the styles of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel.
The posters would accompany VHS tapes as they traveled from town to town for local screenings.
Some of these are amazing....
(From the article): At that moment, Wolfe had been exposed to what he would later clarify as the "Golden Age of Hand-Painted Movie Posters from Ghana," an approximately fifteen-year period between 1985 and 1999 where original movie posters were created for an economically-driven, functional purpose: to accompany rare VHS tapes traveling from town to town like a circus sideshow. As Wolfe explains, "suddenly, with the arrival in Ghana of PAL tapes, video cassette machines, and portable gas generators, they had mobile cinema." Entrepreneurs would set-up a small television set, modest speaker system, and roll into town to introduce entire generations of moviegoers to martial arts, sci-fi, and horror films that otherwise would not have made an appearance until decades later. The posters were most often painted on the reverse side of recycled flour sacks—a makeshift cloth canvas—and then rolled onto wooden dowels for ease of transport. Since each tape required its own unique movie poster, "the best and brightest of a generation of sign painters became the people who created this work."

A flashback to when John Paul White and Joy Williams were getting along as The Civil Wars. I wish that they were able to get it together again.
The first flight of an untethered hot air balloon—humanity’s first really successful attempt at flight—took place in 1783 when “Pilâtre de Rozier and the Marquis d’Arlandes” flew over Paris. The first real photograph was taken in 1826 when Joseph Nicéphore Niépce took a picture out of his window. It took more than 30 years for someone to put these two inventions together to bring us the world’s first photo from the air. That photo, an 1858 aerial image of Paris, France, captured by Gaspard-Félix Tournachon is no longer with us. But the next best thing, says PetaPixel, is in the caring hands of the New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art: an 1860 photograph of Boston captured from 2,000 feet.
To highlight human destruction of animal habitats in East Africa, photographer Nick Brandt shot giant panoramas of life-size animal prints in their former habitats. The project is titled Inherit the Dust.
Inherit the Dust Indeed!
(From the article): Brandt’s photos offer a stark look at how humankind has impacted places where animals used to roam, but no longer do. He found locations where explosive urban development displaced animals due to the building of new factories, wastelands, and quarries. He then erected one of his animal portrait photos on a giant panel, placing the animals back into the scene.

Almost 30 years before Kodachrome, two French brothers invented a way to take color photos. The autochrome process they developed gave the soft, slightly blurred images the feel of an Impressionist painting.
