Legacy of Badassery

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

You know I have every one of JC’s groundbreaking American Recordings series, in which he performed songs of his, songs of others, songs old and new, and single-handedly proved that he owned all musical genres.  Everything he uttered in his voice became his unequivocally and forever.

Johnny Cash’s 80th birthday week continues! Cash doesn’t want to hear about how hard some bitch-ass rappers are because they used to deal E in the Chick Fil-A parking lot back in Winston-Salem and did 16 months in juvie.  Cash got stripes. Badass!

Dunno what’s gotten into me, but here’s another hate-defeating image.  Hating while Gary and Benedict share a hug would be like hating in a room full of baby bunny rabbits. This picture gives me so many feelings, and all of them good. It puts tears in my eyes, it does. I love you guys sooo […]

The antidote to yesterday’s vitriol, something that is pure and perfect and impossible to hate.
