Taj Mahal- Texas Woman Blues

August 12, 2011
"There are no mundane sensations on the Bayou, it seems. There is no fear, only terror. No casual delight, only pure, joyous bliss. No tipsy, only drunk. It is exactly like being an LSU fan."

— Thanks for passing this gem along Liz. (via lilkim)

Hayes Carll- Drunken Poet’s Dream

July 29, 2011
"

I am so full of advice. Any more questions?

About boys? DO NOTHING, MAKE THEM COME TO YOU, DON’T BE CRAZY

About food? EAT LOCALLY BUT ONLY IF YOU ARE A RICH ASSHOLE. EVERYONE LIKES RITZ CRACKERS AND CHEESE

Cars? BUY SOMETHING INEXPENSIVE, YOU AREN’T THAT FANCY

Home decor? GO THRIFT SHOPPING, SPRAY PAINT STUFF. DON’T MAKE YOUR APT LOOK LIKE A PIER ONE

Makeup? SPLURGE ON FACE STUFF, BUY LIP AND EYE STUFF CHEAP

Clowns? ALWAYS SCARY

Skin care? WASH YOUR FACE WITH A ROUGH CLOTH

"

"What she asked me to talk about after she was gone, was how in the olden days when her husband was minority leader of Congress and my father was majority leader of Congress, that Democrats and Republicans were friends, and that they worked together to get things done,” NPR’s Cokie Roberts said. “And I must say, she asked me, she gave me this somewhat daunting assignment five years ago, but it seems incredibly appropriate today and particularly this week as we see what’s going on in Washington right now being very different from what was true then."

"This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body."

— From the preface to Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman.
