"Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them. At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction - so easy to lapse into - that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us."

Yeah, it's a complete mystery *cough*muttlange*cough*.

I'd like to take your "Harlan" reference a few posts back and run with it...

Steve Earle and Del McCoury Band:



Emmylou's going back:



Dave Alvin, "Across the Harlan County Line" (and a shout out to "Justified", season 2 was amazing)



Somewhere in the You Tubes I ran across this cover of "You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive":


The same woman has a lot of bluegrass- and folk-inspired tunes that she plays with her daughters on banjo/mandolin/fiddle. They're good... I wouldn't necessarily call them great but the family music thing is pretty cool.

And now for something completely different: Mozart on a mandolin!

These guys were the opener at the Aesop Rock show in Denver this June, I had never heard of them before. I was blown away how good they were, and was super excited to see them making a few stops in Colorado on a second round of touring. Wouldn't you know it though, I had an exam the night they were in Boulder. Next time...

HAHAHA! One of my favorite Family Guy scenes. Now I had to go search for cool drum videos...way to make me waste time at work Kiefer. You might appreciate this one. Danny Carey is freaking awesome and one of the many reasons Tool will always be at the top of my "Music that is awesome" list. This list is by far superior to anyone else's list fyi...



Can't hear the rest of the band well, but you can see Danny Carey be is normal super drummer self and its cool to hear his drums more out front. His beats are just... :YY :bow:
