At tommoody.us I just put up some new music, and a post about the '60s beatnik TV horror show host Ghoulardi. It's kind of an experiment, to work with a different format and post items without comments.
Update: More posts have since been added.
I'm going to watch FROGS on Wednesday.
hi tom--i miss the discussions on your site. it's kind of a bummer they're gone.
Sorry about that, bxk--the threads are still open here (unless they're closed due to spam).
< delurk > Your page is on my daily read list. The mix of sounds, images, politics is unique.
Thanks, Mark. When I was in college a couple of my friends (brothers) amused us at parties by doing "Jed Clampett dances." Ebsen had this weird high stepping, slightly fucked up way of dancing that you see occasionally on TBH. I figured in '07 "There's gotta be a YouTube of that" and sure enough--it was the raw material for my own HMV (Hillbilly music video).
A previous comment of mine was more rancorous than I intended. I'm generally happy to get email about shows. What bugs me is the art spam that goes out to every perceived writer and the missives from public relations personnel who have obviously never looked at my page but start their pitch with "love your blog."
does this mean that you're not gonna put up the rest of those american mammal paintings?
Hi, p.d. Thanks for the reminder. I will put them up at tommoody.us but I have no set schedule so please check back occasionally. Also all my "archive blogs" are here at the Tree and are active. Some of the previous mammals are here.
nice. the barn is sweet, but the galvanized utility building ls great.
So, instead of pulling a billmon you're pulling a vvork?
Right, at Vvork the authors don't devote whole posts to griping about computer hardware problems they're having.
Nice Salon letter.
Thanks. It just blurted out--I was surprised that anyone still misunderestimates Bush's Midland roots.
I sort of understand the uppercrust Houston milieu. My parents didn't live in the same sort of neighborhood as the Bush's until was long gone from the state. That was a nice snapshot of Midland, which I've never even passed through.
