An instructor at the local community college was a big fan of Lyle Lovett, and even mentioned him in the title poem of  her poetry collection, The Hillbilly Vampire.  She wrote that some people thought of hillbilly vampires as "Lyle Lovett in a cape," but they're actually people who raid mountain culture and carry off quilts. I loaned the book a long time ago, but I'll try to find the poem and post it.

Hearing that I was planning to attend a k.d. lang concert, a coworker blurted out "She's a lesbian! I'd never listen to a lesbian." Proof that bigots are punished; she's missing out on one of the greatest voices of all time.

This reminds me of an incident involving my late father. I came home one day to find him walking through the house singing "Karma Chameleon" and asked if he'd ever seen Boy George, wondering about his Southern Baptist reaction to George. He shrugged and said, "I like the song. That's all that I care about."

This is footage from Farm Aid 1990 viked from Youtube. The sound quality could be better. Listen to the studio version; you'll go to pieces over it.

Amazing

I've already posted this in a comment on another journal, but I wanted it in my journal, too.

BB&T is to be commended for paying back the money and for refusing to finance private projects on land seized under eminent domain. Their costumer service isn't bad, either.
