Kickin' the ass of Jesus
I bit the bullet and signed up for Apple Music. Last December I bought a Smart TV and got Netflix thinking it would be good company for me in the lonely nights of winter. To be honest I’m really not a TV guy. I like books and music. There were some good TV shows to be sure but the next day I had no good lines, no good stories and nothing I could offer you my faithful readers. Spending two or more hours in front of the boob tube is not for me.
Apple Music is amazing as I have listened to music I would have been to cheap to download and try out. I can listen and do other stuff too. This is the perfect compliment to a studio. I don’t know how Apple figured out I have passion for free wheeling renegades and poetic outlaws but the first recommendation was Outlaw Country.
Check out the words to these two songs. Man I wish I could write like this!
Well, I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison
And I went to pick her up in the rain
But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
she got run ned over by a damned old train. Steve Goodman the perfect country song.
Or how about?
She left me for Jesus and that just ain’t fair
She says that he’s perfect, how could I compare
She says I should find him and I’ll know peace at last
If I ever find Jesus, I’m kickin’ his ass.----Hayes Carll
The written word is my love. It is all started with my Uncle Jimmie who paid my wages in the Pottery with any book I wanted. No cash just books. Look at what it did for me!
I thought I would show you a bit of the blood of Jesus from the wood kiln today. I always liked the line from potter Sandy Simon- I like porcelain because my blood shows up so well on it.
