Daddy??? Did you know Dr King...

Fought his whole life for equality of all races?? “Yeah bud, I did know that”. Well, Daddy, he gave his life for that...

I’m so glad that, even living in the south, my ever intuned, sensitive child can appreciate the importance and the sacrifice of this day! May we never give up fighting for “The Dream”.

Recorded 50 years ago today

And some cool pics of that day:


Merry Christmas!

From the DocReed2003 fam and Dylan!

A song for the resistance...

May we keep up the fight, even when it feels like we’re losing; may we provide each other strength, even when we are on the verge of collapsing ourselves; may we provide a shoulder to cry on in times of despair, even when we are crumbling from our own sorrows; and may we never lose hope...

Freedom isn’t lost yet...

Brian Williams interpretation of the Black Belt

Brian Williams’ just said...it’s ‘remarkable’ that the map shows that Doug Jones took the ‘Black Belt’, which he said referred to the ‘topsoil’. Jesus Christ Brian!! Wtf man!!?? Yeah, maybe people in the 19thC referred to that area for the “topsoil” but here’s a NEWSFLASH bro, that area in modern times is known as “the Black Belt” because of the large population of African Americans, largely as a result of the history of slavery in that area...you know, because of that fertile topsoil you referred to. A representative of the UN has recently remarked about how shocked they were at the level of poverty in the “Black Belt” of Alabama. So, fuck you, Brian, for your ignorant comment...(Sorry, that comment by Williams just pissed me right off)

Our new fur baby....

Our family lost a fur baby this year and we’ve been feeling the loss for weeks. We recently were walking through our local pet store picking up a few things for our shi-tzu when I felt a nose nuzzle me on my side. That was the moment we were introduced to the soulfulness of the greyhound. We made a decision to adopt a racing greyhound and our journey of adoption came to fruition on Saturday. At the end of our home visit, I’d love to tell you that we chose our baby, but, in fact he chose us. Our baby boy, Dylan, has been an amazing addition to our family. He’s still getting used to his knew home, but he’s already bonding to his fam. I couldn’t help but share a pic of this amazing animal with you guys!

Only because it feels like we need a musical pick me up around here!!

Fall smells...

It’s finally getting colder here. I just stepped outside to take the dogs out and the crispness in the air was a nice feeling. The extra gift was the smell of wood burning fireplaces coming from down the street. It’s one of those smells that takes me back to childhood...a smell that evokes so many memories. Just thought I’d share.

The best in modern country music....

A dedication to my lovely bride....(if you’ve never heard of Jason Isbell, go check him out. He and his wife Amanda Shires, who’s also his backup singer and fiddle player, are incredible. It also helps that Jason is a liberal and vocal about his beliefs!)

Anyone watching the CMAs tonight...lets pull for one of our own...Jason Isbell

Isbell has been around a while, most famously associated with Drive By Truckers. The guy is a phenomenal singer/songwriter. If you don’t know his music and like traditional or alt-Country or Americana...I can’t recommend him enough. He’s an outspoken liberal, and his album “Nashville Sound” is up for album of the year...despite being an “independent” album and not being pushed by a major label. Saw him recently at the Ryman in Nashville and it was unbelievable. Also, his wife Amanda Shires , who also sings backup and plays fiddle for him, is an incredible artist in her own right!

The night I saw him at the Ryman, they had invited the local ACLU to have a table in the lobby...freaking awesome!

Here’s taste from “Nashville Sound”
