The return of the weekly link roundup

Posted on 02/11/2023 in misc

I had a weekly email newsletter back before Substack was cool. I quit doing it years ago, and I don't even remember why. Anyway, inspired by Brian, I just decided 5 minutes ago to revive the weekly interesting links email as a weekly blog posts.

Side thought - I wonder when the last time was that I referenced another blog as inspiration for something, as opposed to a Tweet?

Learning to Love Paper Books Again

I stumbled into Robert Jon and The Wreck last week. How did these guys put out six records without me noticing? Their mix of southern rock and R&B goes down as smooth as a shot of Tennessee whiskey. Check out Chicago, Oh Miss Carolina, Gold or their newest single, Come At Me for a taste.

This warm weather we've had all week has me really feeling the wanderlust. I'm ready to de-winterize the camper and get out into the woods. Realistically, I've probably got another two months. Ugh.

I like hearing from readers, all three of you! Nobody comments on blogs anymore, and I'd rather not use Facebook or Twitter as a comment system so it's back to the email.
