So I recently got a new computer and, with the sudden preponderance of space available, I realized I could return to my obsessive/illegal pursuit of new music - and by new I mean new to me. What follows is a short playlist. I decided to put it together when I heard the first song, "Miss Ferris" by John Hartford, a great song about steam boats. One of the characters in the song is a boat captain named Buck. Seeing as my great uncle Joseph "Buck" Davis was a steam boat captain, it only seemed reasonable that I should post up this song. The other tracks that follow are fairly recent acquisitions and other things that accompany that song well.

The image above is a lithograph depicting a steam boat race on the Ohio and Monongahela Rivers in 1949 - the boat on the left is my Uncle Buck's. (Parts of Hartford's song take place in 1947 as he notes, so the steam boats he is talking about could look a lot like these.) Buck's boat was the Wm. Larimer Jones, and as it notes in the bottom right corner "Ran course of 1.6 miles in 9 minutes with 4 light barges." Unfortunately that wasn't fast enough, as he lost to the opposing ship, The Homestead, by one second! The race was so close that this lithograph was made to commemorate it. Below is a somewhat blurry detail shot of the info about Uncle Buck's boat.

Ok, enough family history. Here are the tunes.

I especially like the crackliness on the dark strips.

This piece is a continuation of an idea from a previous piece I did, titled Consummate V's (5x7, acrylic, ink, newsprint transfer on cardboard).

hello again.

I have a lot of old stuff and new stuff to share..
here's some old stuff:
I went to the Vanity Fair Oscar party to assist my hero, Larry Fink.

here he is at work:

he took this picture:

I met some of my photographic heros, and it was really incredibe to see Larry at work.
here are some random pictures that I have floating around my computer..
they are just scan of cvs prints so they are nothing to look at.. but I thought you kids might get a kick out of Elton John and his love for in N out.

a dream with everyone you have ever met, but have not ever met.
a middle school dance but everyone is alot older, they smell like smoke and they are a bit more awkward.

a Bard party, except the reason you know everyone is they are famous, and also they come up to you and make small chat.
