Jason Isbell – “Southeastern”

Buy this album.  Immediately.  There isn’t a bad song.  It has almost a ‘hollow’ sound, but the songs and the melodies are anything but.  My Facebook feed and Spotify stalking column were all abuzz with songs from Jason Isbell’s ‘Southeastern.’  Drive By Truckers fans know what I’m talking about.

Vintage Ties

Considering the general ‘dress code’ for men has dwindled over the past 20 years, wearing ties has become less and less prevalent except for bankers and lawyers.  I don’t wear  ties very much.  I stick to neckties rather than bow ties, as I prefer the look  (note – I can tie my own bow tie.  Probably better…
