Andrew Jackson Jihad and Jeffrey Lewis Join Tallahassee Turns Ten
We are extremely lucky to get to contribute to Tallahassee Turns Ten, a covers album made in tribute to the first Mountain Goats album I (Sean) ever heard. I remember it like it was yesterday. Some time in 2005, my girlfriend told me that she had heard a band that reminded her of a smarter, better version of my band. This band was the Mountain Goats. We went to Zia Records together and I found Tallahassee. Mountain Goats fever struck our group of friends and has been plaguing us ever since.
Ben and I have gotten to see the Mountain Goats 4 times, once accompanied by the amazing Peter Hughes, once with Franklin Bruno on piano, and twice solo at the Harvest of Hope and Plan-it-X fest respectively. The latter occasion was amazing, JD had such a grip on the audience (600 people!) that he unplugged his guitar and finished the set without amplification.
I’m sure it can go without saying that The Mountain Goats have inspired us. We have learned many things from this music, and have become a better band by taking note of how John Darnielle conducts himself. Good style. Always classy. Jovial yet firm.
The guy on the right half of the picture is Jeffrey Lewis, another tremendous songwriter. I have had the pleasure of seeing him play twice now, and I believe in him. He is one of the good guys, as my grandfather would say.
thanks for reading! read below to find out more about this awesome project. :-)

Andrew Jackson Jihad and Jeffrey Lewis Join Tallahassee Turns Ten
Phoenix band Andrew Jackson Jihad are known nationwide for their energetic folk-punk and their DIY work ethic. Jeffrey Lewis has been praised by Will Oldham, Jens Lekman, and Jarvis Cocker for his songwriting, especially his literate, often absurd lyrics. In 2008, Lewis illustrated a “comic book press kit” for The Mountain Goats’ album Heretic Pride. Both are now a part of Tallahassee Turns Ten.
Jeffrey Lewis will be covering “See America Right” and Andrew Jackson Jihad will tackle “Alpha Rats Nest”.  Anyone else excited about this? If you haven’t already, you can back the kickstarter here. Just $5 will get you a digital download of the whole thing.


This is a thing now?! Woot!

Ben Smith Artist: Mythologies Explore the Banal & Bizarre

Ben Smith’s paintings take the ordinary, even the banal, and transforms it into something curious and unique. Many of his works are portraits, but far from recording reality, they touch on the surreal by adding multiples of the subject, other strangely placed characters, or even conjoined creatures that are obliquely interacted with. In short, his subjects are experiencing something pretty far out.
Especially in his series Personal Mythology, paintings seem to touch on feelings of doubt and divergences within a personality, giving rise to a quiet search for resolution, perhaps found in a greater sense of identity. What is it to have two versions of yourself? To see yourself as both large and small, or another creature entirely?

The Cabazon Dinosaurs: A Surprise in the Desert

For more photos of Dinny and Mr. Rex, explore the Cabazon Dinosaurs location page.

For any adventurous road-tripper making the 157-kilometer (97.5-mile) drive between Los Angeles and Palm Springs, California, there are three surefire signs that you’re on your way: vast expanses of desert, fields of industrial windmills—and dinosaurs.

Dinny the Dinosaur and her companion, Mr. Rex, tower over the horizon of Cabazon, California. The pair were created by sculptor Claude K. Belle as a roadside wonder to attract customers to his Wheel Inn Restaurant located beneath their feet. Belle led the project without the help of external companies, opting instead to work with a few friends to complete his vision.

Dinny, an Apatosaurus, came first in 1981, built from salvaged interstate materials over the course of 11 years. In all, she measures 46 meters (150 feet) in length and stretches 14 meters (45 feet) into the sky. Mr. Rex, who is slightly taller at 20 meters (65 feet) came next in 1986. Made from concrete and steel, both dinosaurs weigh more than 100 tons each.

In addition to their photogenic exteriors, the dinos were designed as hollow structures that visitors can explore. Dinny’s belly contains a gift shop and adventurous Instagrammers can scale Mr. Rex for a shot of the desert horizon through the Tyrannosaurus’s mouth.

Technology then and now

at first i thought it was the same number then I noticed it said GB and damn

As one of the tech review magazines said a few years ago when the first 32 GB micro SD cards came out, “At last it is possible for a single human being to accidentally swallow all of the data collected by the Apollo Program.”

now that is a review
