3 words.....PAT THE BUNNY
I love Pat The Bunny! I remember when i got kicked out of the house for the first time i moved in with a junkie, who would later become one of my best friends, and at the time i had just discovered probably nothing, possibly everything, and it changed my whole perspective on folk and lyric writing.. some deep shit on that album, helped me though a rough time.

Been listening a lot of folk punk these days, on Ramshackle Glory now. Check out Blackbird Raum and Dummy Head Torpedo if you haven't heard of them.


(The whole album is in the channel)

i have never been into bluegrass & am aging out of being able to tolerate all the screaming in folk-punk, but i do have an enduring love of appalachian old-time that started from trying to learn clawhammer banjo. tommy jarrell is my all-time favorite classic folk artist in that genre...be good tanyas are a really lovely, girly indie neo-americana sort of band. oh yeah, check out roscoe holcomb for some true lonesome old school mountain banjo blues!

Bluegrass/folk like old blues are history in song. Americana at its finest imo. Folk punk/traveller stuff is like homage to those stories and like a carrying on of the torch. It always feels old timey. Simple and nostalgic. There really is so much history and depth in it i love it. I love to wander youtube listening o stuff in these general genres. So much good shit. Ive really dug this song lately..... hogslop string band ~ Reuben's train

Pandora is your best friend. Their Americana station is amazing.

You might be surprised at some good folk bluegrass music from The Grateful Dead... also a lot of good Jerry Garcia solo stuff too.

Holy shit, sure as fuck after 6+ hours of straight bike polo.
I am now on the road!! I spent money on the luxury of a nice ticket to Old Town San Diego, from there I will visit my godmother in East County and then hitchhike up the coast to the East Bay to visit friends and family. It’ll be in time for my 19th birthday!
The feeling of finally doing this is fucking amazing!

OK, so, my pack is a military duffle bag that is somewhat old, and I'm not sure it will hold up to traveling across the entire continent; so I'm open to suggestions on the best (?) replacement to buy....Thoughts?
