Bill Traylor

Posted by michaelavorgna in Uncategorized

12914traylorBill Traylor (April 1, 1854 – October 23, 1949) began making art at the age of 85. I’d say the areas he doesn’t touch are as important, if not more important, than the areas he does touch which may or may not have something to do with the fact that he didn’t start making art until he was 85 or that he began life as a slave. I really don’t know, who would? Its as if the entire surfaces of his found surfaces, the story goes Bill refused to use the drawing paper he was offered, are lit up with a lightning bolt of life’s energy. Lovely.

Key Industries Men’s Long Sleeve Button Front Hickory Stripe Logger

The cotton work shirt. You can pay about as much as you’d like for a cotton work shirt. I’d imagine the more you pay, the less likely you are to actually want to work in it. If your ever on the lookout for a tough, study, thick, heavy, and durable (it feels like it can stand up on its own) 100% cotton work shirt that you wouldn’t be afraid to work in, I recommend the Key Industries Men’s Long Sleeve Button Front Hickory Stripe Logger ($26.99). Cut big and built to last. Comes in Tall sizes for you tall-sized specimens.

Available from Key Industries (est. 1908).

Of course I missed out on the new :ZOVIET*FRANCE triple treat from alt.vinyl. Dammit! Consisting of a 7?, 10?, and 12? (sound familiar) in a lovely boxed set, I am kicking myself for not getting on this list. Dammit!

Milford Graves + Don Pullen
In Concert at Yale University

This ever elusive album  has just come up on eBay. My guess is it’ll sell for hundreds. Super-limited private press hand-painted edition.

from Brett Milano’s Vinyl Junkies

No, I don’t have one and neither does Thurston Moore (but if I was him I would).

Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso UFO
Son Of A Bitches Brew

Even though I’ve only listened to a few pieces of a few tracks (and they sound bitchin’) from this double LP I needed to have it. Needed to have it. Just released by Important Records, today. I have a feeling it is an important record (I could very well be wrong).

Comes in black, salmon, blue or both-colored vinyl for $20.
