Head,

That sure is one fine belt buckle head, it must weigh at least 3lb. I'm glad you managed to find one of the half dozen automobiles in your front drive that actually worked, got it off its blocks and going so that you and your buddies could go bowling. No doubt the sounds of Johnny Cash were thundering out of your eight-track as your roared down that dirt track in your primer coloured pick-up (with buffalo horns on the front grill and a confederate flag flying from the CB aerial).

Grits is ground hominy. Prepared in boiling water - a good starch dish...usually a breakfast side. Mrs. Barsnake has a couple recipes that serve as dinner dishes. Grit & cheese casserol. - Sounds weird - but actually tasty. She likes 'em better'n I do.
They're not too bad with butter and sugar.
and the beat goes on...

Pata,

Yes, you could choose any culture in the world, replace a few key words and the stereotype would fit. But for an Irishman that would be bacon and cabbage instead of beans on toast and Daniel O'Donnell instead of Lonnie Donnegan.

What the fuck are grits anyway? I hear these Rednecks (sorry Blackjack I mean a certain type of economically deprived, politically conservative, Caucasians normally dwelling in the Southern parts of the USA) on TV talking about grits but I've no idea what they are. What are they? What do they taste like?

I never knew that takin the mickey out of a Country Music singer would arouse such passion. He just a fucking Country music singer. I can't stand American Country Music or Irish Country Music, it's all crap as far as I'm concerned. I can't stand Country music. It's not about being more sophisticated it's about not liking depressive, whining, 'cry-into-your-beerglass' music.

And Blackjack, if you can't laugh at a Redneck joke you need to lighten and loosen that PC straight-jacket that well-meaning liberals seems to choose to wear.

Relax [boyo], [light up a Player], open another bottle of [Guinness] (trying not to break another tooth), take the weight of those [bovver] booted feet and gaze lovingly at the large framed picture of [Lonnie Donnigan] above your fireplace while your beer-bellied wife/sister fixes you up a nice bowl of [beans and toast].

Lord Hobhobhobgobblin has gon back to the ivory tower, methinks. Good. More Bud fer the rest of us.

As a rule, I'm not that big of a fan of country music. I live within biking distance of Folsom Prison, and when I bicycle past it I think of it more as the former home of Rick James than of Johnny Cash.

Still, when I heard him do "Hurt," I had to give Cash the shout out. Fucking amazing.

Anyone ever tried a shot of Deva in a Budweiser?

You know what Hobbes? Tonight when I go
to the bowling alley, I'm gonna down
a dog with ketchup and hoist a lightly
salted Bud in your honor. I'm gonna say
a prayer to baby Jesus that maybe someday
you'll understand and be touched by the
wisdom, simplicity and benign wit of the
likes of Junior Samples.

Ok in the right thread this time.

Hobby, you take me back to my hillbilly
childhood. sigh.

I was 8 years old.

My Aunt Ruby had a spit cup. Yep,
like I said before. 90 years young
dippin' snuff and staring blankly
at the portrait of Buck Owens on the
victrola. Reminded me of an old opium
addict. Every once in awhile Miss Elie
would put a finger in Aunt Ruby's
lip and scoop out the old wad. Then replace
it with a new one. As I sat silently drinking
cream and coffee out of a disposable plastic
cup, the cone kind that sat in the 1970's
Ice cream parlor colored plastic holders, brown,
yellow, olive green. Never ran out of coffee in
that place. Elie had one of those big son of a
bitches made 30 cups or more.

I spent the night there a few times and Miss
Elie handed me an empty coffee can. I asked what
it was for. She told me "Fer the middle of the
night, if'n yah can't make it to the facilities in time".
Which was only ten feet from the bed
I would be sleeping in.


Yes, I can appreciate Johhny Cash. I don't
care for country music much but I like his
style, he's a good story teller. Don't mistake
the melancholy in his soul for geriatric
warbling, even if his worst sin is that of
being an entertainer.

But then again, he could be a big prick.
I don't really know the guy personally.

What is it with some folk and Johnny Cash?



It has something to do with the fact that every word that the man sings sounds TRUE. He's not a great singer, not a great musician, but he has that SOMETHING that makes you feel like he's lived every word and knows your own pain.

Oh, I'm sorry, you probably weren't looking for an actual answer. You were just looking to get on your high-horse and make sure everyone knows how much more sophisticated you are.

"Redneck?" For a preported socialist, you seem to have an awful lot of disdain for the working class...

apart from ring of fire id never really paid much attention to johnny cash. im not big on country music. however i think its good to see him stretch his limits and play with other genres of music. his version of hurt didnt do much for me at first listen but when checked out the clip at director Mark Romanek's site i changed my mind. i think he gives the song a whole new and much deeper perspective. it quits being a tune by some angst ridden man but a reflective look back at an entire lifetime and the realisation that in the end, we all end up in the same place.

heres a quote from the NIN hotline
In a recent article on RollingStone.com about the video of Hurt put out by Johnny Cash earlier this year, Trent Reznor explains his initial reaction to the video:


Cash's producer, Rick Rubin, sent a copy of the video to NIN's Trent Reznor. "We were in the studio, getting ready to work -- and I popped it in," Reznor says. "By the end I was really on the verge of tears. I'm working with Zach de la Rocha, and I told him to take a look. At the end of it, there was just dead silence. There was, like, this moist clearing of our throats and then, 'Uh, OK, let's get some coffee.'"


and before you ask, no i dont drink budweiser... i prefer belgian high octane beers and irish stout when i drink beer at all. i usually stick to south african and australian cabernet sauvignon. mmmmmmmmmm

Relax boys, chew some more Redman tobacco, open another bottle of Bud (trying not to break another tooth), take the weight of those cowboy booted feet and gaze lovingly at the large framed picture of Johnny Cash above your fireplace while your beer-bellied wife/sister fixes you up a nice bowl of grits.

What is it with some folk and Johnny Cash? He's just another redneck hick singing corny Country music about cars, drunks, losers and women leaving their husbands. It's only good for crying into your Budweiser to.

True, have you heard Cash do Soundgarden's "Rusted Cage"? He got some air time with that one as well.

I saw a 2 hour bio on The Great Johnny Cash on E, I think, which was quite awesome. The Man in Black cannot be compared.

In college I won $50 off my rent doing "Ring of Fire" in a Karaoke contest.

Just saw the complete video of Johnny Cash's cover of NIN's "Hurt."


Wow.


It's been around for a couple of months, but it's starting to get some major airplay on VH1.
