Bob Jones is finally making more musics. Here are some of his latest work. Make sure to look at the Harmonic Visualization before (and durning) listening to the piece. It really allows for a richer experience.

I had this concept--after a strange dream, while scoping out the I Dreamed I Saw st. Augustine
tab in my just-in-case-it-disappears downloaded dylanchords
, of ...St. Augustine
as a slow moody slide in Open D ala Blind Texas Marlin. But then I got to wondering whether someone might have a chord dictionary online where a few variations on a first position B Minor
in Open D might be found. Voila! Achtung, Baby! Behold Brian's huge chordlist collection
. Oh, man, he's got your standard and open tunings on guitar plus mandolin, uke, banjos, bouzouki, pipa and lute. A living room guitarist's must have, no doubt, although a few more open tunings for pipa would have been nice... [more inside]

Back in 1963, a TV special called "Folk Songs and More Folk Songs" aired, which featured a cross section of the "folk" artists who were at that time just beginning to receive wider media exposure. Aside from the squeaky-clean, white bread embarrassment of groups like The Brothers Four
, the show redeemed itself with performances by a very young Bob Dylan, who sang The Ballad of Hollis Brown
(with banjo and bass accompaniment) and Man of Constant Sorrow
. And here's two more very early Dylan TV appearances, from Canada, 1964: A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall
and Girl From the North Country
. Here's the same Girl From the North Country
performed years later, once again on broadcast TV, in duet with Johnny Cash, from the Johnny Cash Show. [more inside]

Anybody remember Slow Bob In The Lower Dimensions
? Turns out the short video, once a mainstay of early 90s late-night MTV, was created by one Henry Selick,
director of, oh, The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach, Monkeybone,
and the forthcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Coraline. A lot more
on Selick; also, higher quality, alternate format (but slower loading) versions are available here.

There are approximately 81,000 Robert Smiths residing in the United States. Bob Smith USA
appeared at the AFI SilverDOCS film festival yesterday to a sold out crowd.
Bob Smith (New York City) dons his Satan costume to preach the virtues of atheism; Bob Smith (Pennsylvania) puts on his red nose and teaches as part of a Christian clown ministry; Bob Smith (Syracuse) spends his retirement transforming his yard into an oasis of junk; and Bob Smith (Texas) runs for county sheriff.

The making of a D-Day tradition...
I immediately get goosebumps
when I hear the score of Band of Brothers
...I'm not sure why, maybe it was my local connections (Dick Winters
, Bill Guanere
, Albert Blithe
, Babe Heffron
, Thomas Meehan
, Ralph Spina
, Harry Welsh
, and Robert Strayer
are all from Philadelphia), the surrounding suburbs, or Pennsylvania), or maybe it was because the original airings took place in the shadow of 9/11 (the premiere was September 9th, 2001, with the D-Day drop occuring in the second episode, Day of Days, on 9/16/2001), but this series will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart. Everything is done so beautifully, from the special effects
, to the sound, the music
, to the dutiful translation from Stephen Ambrose book
to the screen. It's certainly worthy of the 9.5 out of 10 that IMDB readers
had given it. Every year now since, either HBO (On Demand - you have to subscribe to HBO plus have digital cable) or the History Channel
has played Tom Hanks'
and Steven Spielberg's
masterful WW2 epic. You can think of it as Saving Private Ryan, but 3 times as long. Even if war movies are not your thing, I can almost guarantee that they will see the human side of the soldier and becomely deeply invested in the characters. Follow the men of Easy Company from training and the running of Currahee, to the parachute jump on D-Day, through the liberation of Europe, the horror of a German concentration camp, and eventually to the end of the war, to Hitler's mountaintop retreat. I'm not the only one - check out the numerous fan sites to BoB (forum shorthand for Band of Brothers) here
, and here
, as well as entries on TVTome
, and Television without Pity
. If you want to try before you commit to watching the whole thing, I'd recommend the episodes Day of Days
, and the Breaking Point
