The video that started it all

For me anyway. I remember staying up late and watching this. I was amazed–I’d never heard anything like this. In my small town you got southern fried rock, country, some horrid metal thing, folk or classical. I’m sure there were other things going on, but that’s all I heard in …

ARGH

I DID post yesterday. Yesterday NIGHT as a matter of fact, it took hours to get the post together because of a sick kidlet. Somehow it got mangled last night during some what, system maintenence or something? I’m hoping this doesn’t take me out of the running. Because it WAS …
