In loving memory of Mary Lunny, who passed away in March.
An extraordinary woman, missed and remembered, rest in peace.

We start this mixtape with Buddy Miles, who passed away in February.
his version of Down By The River remains a stone cold classic.

If you like any of this music, you really need these two websites in your life:
http://funky16corners.wordpress.com : http://fufustew.wordpress.com
You should also check out the radio stylings of Mr Fine Wine here.

Some timely words from Kurt Vonnegut, who passed away this time last year:

"No matter how corrupt, greedy, and heartless our government, our corporations, our media,
and our religious and charitable institutions may become, the music will still be wonderful."

I hope so.... read the rest of Blues For America here, interview here, quotes here.

. . : : Firstborn - When It Hits you Feel No Pain : : . .

A few years ago I made an album for Independente under the name of Firstborn.
Its one of the things I'm proudest of, and includes musical heroes and heroic friends.
Here it is: When It Hits You Feel No Pain

. . : : Hollace Metzger, artist / poet / architect / photographer : : . .

Someone who speaks from an intimate, personal perspective, but reaches out, and connects
with thousands of people through online galleries, blogs, and particularly MySpace. Fascinating.

"Observing The Labyrinth From Heaven" is her new collection of poetry and photographs.
You can order it online, or download it from virb.com, the spoken word audiobook is coming soon.

. . : : The Brian Jonestown Massacre : : . .

The MySpace blog of Anton Alfred Newcombe gets more relevant every day,
a sobering, frightening, and darkly hilarious digest of world events and great music clips.
I wish he had his own TV show, but maybe a MySpace blog can be just as powerful: click here

. . : : P R E D A : : . .

Nobel peace prize nominee Shay Cullen works with Preda.org
to help people escape from exploitation and slavery in the Philippines.
Whatever you beliefs, their work is inspiring, click here.

As we say farewell until the next time, let us consider the words of Eric Burdon and War:

"You can't hold on to life...you can only touch it...."

Love always,
