New Mexico, for you I will return.

Traveling through Arizona and into New Mexico today, maybe Texas.

Alright! New Kurt Vile song out and album to come. My friend Ted Young worked on this one!

Snow piled around the doors of my house, listening to Nebraska, hoping I don’t get swept into the ocean. 

Great song, Great Voice

Nicodemus, Kansas:



"Nicodemus is the only remaining western town established by African Americans during the Reconstruction period following the Civil War and represents a largely untold story of the western expansion and settlement of the Great Plains. Nicodemus arose from the efforts of an organized group of African Americans who wanted to create a supportive viable African American community, relying on the values of home life, education, religion, hard work, and the social, religious, and political organizations that grew out of a tradition of mutual assistance. Nicodemus continues its heritage through organizations that promote local inititives and economic growth while preserving its strong historical foundation.”
