Angel Band
Blue Ridge Mountain Boys

sptread:

In 1963 The Blue Ridge Mountain Boys released Hootenanny N’ Blue Grass. I’d guarantee you that this one will never be released on CD. Here is a paragraph from the back cover.

The Blue Ridge Mountain Boys are among the best blue grass exponents around. Each player is steeped in the blue grass tradition, having been raised In the backwoods of the south and southeast. The vocals are handled by Hershel Sizemore, Rual Yarbrough and Jacob Landers, all from Alabama. Hershel is from Leighton while Rual and Jake are from Muscle Shoals and Russellvllle respectively. Rual Yarbrough also performs meticulously on the banjo. The other banjo player is Charles Trent. The two guitarists are Jerry Kennedy and Kelso Herston who along with the bassist Buddy Klllen and drummer Murrey Harman round out the balance of the band.

Good luck finding a copy of this one.

Ugh this is wonderful. Traditional, skilled bluegrass.

"It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.

You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything."

Procrastination Is Not Laziness | Thought Catalog

I’ve posted this before but I’m posting it again because it’s just so important and really gets at the heart of why so much advice about procrastination, much of it targeted at people who have ADHD but are just considered “lazy,” fails. Before you can tell someone to “just do it already,” you need to think about the reasons they’re NOT doing it, like all the meanings they’ve attached to vague terms like “success” and “failure.”

Oh wow.

That resonates too much.  As I sit on tumblr at 1 in the morning, avoid studying for a test I have at noon today.

OK..so this is why I end up doing most of my stuff near the deadlines.

"In a world where inequality of ability is inevitable, anarchists do not sanction any attempt to produce equality by artificial or authoritarian means. The only equality they posit and will strive their utmost to defend is the equality of opportunity. This necessitates the maximum amount of freedom for each individual. This will not necessarily result in equality of incomes or of wealth but will result in returns proportionate to services rendered. Free competition will see to that."

First the “Against Libertarian Brutalism" piece and now this. Jeffrey Tucker seems to be joining team left-libertarian, and I approve.

it’s been in the making; Tucker’s pretty chummy with Charles Johnson as of late. right, left or center though, Tucker still has one of the most personal and hopeful conceptions of liberty today.

"Earlier, I stated that this essay’s purpose was political revolution; then I stated that it was merely to convince you to become an anarchist. But it should now be clear that I was not moving the goalposts. If you become an anarchist, then you have already completed the revolution: no government on earth has any legitimate authority to bind you to any obligation that you did not already have on your own. It’s a mistake to think of the State as holding you under its authority while you struggle to escape; at the most, it has power, not authority over you. As far as your former government is concerned, you have the moral standing not of a subject, but of the head of a revolutionary state of one.”
