DBT Week in Review - 10/16/09

Damn laptop committed harakiri this morning. Luckily, a trip to Best Buy produced a bad ass 300 dolla replacement. Last one. Whew! $300. Yes, I am laughing the laugh of a man who feels like he just stole something.

DBT Lore.

Ford razes long-empty die cast site | | The Times Daily | Florence, AL:

"The area's unemployment rate exploded to near 20 percent when Ford ceased operation. That was followed by the discovery of contaminants in the groundwater near the plant and several lawsuits from workers and nearby residents who claimed the operation led to them contracting cancer or devalued their property. The environmental concerns were largely linked to the cleaning solvent Ford used in its manufacturing process."

Jason Isbell

Shoals musicians guide new generation of artists | | The Times Daily | Florence, AL:
Jason Isbell still remembers the advice Barry Billings gave him nearly 15 years ago when he was a kid hoping to break into the Shoals music scene."


Lake Fever Sessions - The Dexateens


Road-trip mix-tape | Music | The A.V. Club:

"But if I must avoid both repeating myself and getting overtly personal, I’d say you want to have a copy of “Take Me To The Speedway” from the Dexateens’ Red Dust Rising album. Here’s where you’re going to want to trigger this one: Assuming you’re taking the most direct route from Seattle to Nashville, you’ll find yourself at some point on the I-24, passing through Kentucky. You’ll also find yourself a mite peckish, and you’ll stop somewhere—maybe a grocery store, maybe a truck stop or a gas station—to get some quick focus via a Coke and some jerky. Walk back to your car. Feel that little frisson on your skin and at the base of your brain that tells you that you’re really in the South now, and that means you’re in another country. Get in the car, give your navigator a little wink, and put on “Take Me To The Speedway.” Then you’ll know."
