Star Trek speaks to some basic human needs, that there is a tomorrow - it’s not all going to be over with a big flash and a bomb. This is the human adventure. It’s just begun.

Q:hair, windpipe, wrists, feet
Hair: What hair color looks best on you and what’s your natural color?
Brown I guess, I’ve never dyed it anything other than it’s natural color. Except for the odd cosplay, that is.
Windpipe: Do you sing?
Whether it’s good or not, I do haha. I’ve been singing along to all these songs I’ve been reblogging and I’m very thankful no one can hear. But yeah, I’ve posted me singing before, it probably needs work haha.
Wrists: Have you ever broken a bone?
Not that I know of. I thought I might have broken a pinky or toe before, but nothing major… thankfully.
Feet: Favorite pair of shoes?
I have a pair of “athletic” (I guess you’d call ‘em) Doc Martins that are fantastic. I wear them most often. They’re super comfortable and durable.

In 2003, John Clarke in The Times wrote that “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground” was “the most intense and startling blues record ever made”. Francis Davis, author of The History of the Blues concurs, writing “In terms of its intensity alone—its spiritual ache—there is nothing else from the period to compare to Johnson’s ‘Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground’, on which his guitar takes the part of a preacher and his wordless voice the part of a rapt congregation.”
Hard Time Killing Floor Blues, by Skip James (1931). In the infancy of this blog (two years ago or so) I posted standard-quality mp3 songs. I’m going to the East Coast for a few days this month, and I decided to try to keep up by re-posting some of those tunes in HQ.
James recorded for Paramount in 1931, only to see the Depression kill his sales. He was rediscovered a few years before his 1969 death, and the only real money he ever made in his lifetime from music was when Cream covered his “I’m So Glad.” Like Robert Johnson later, on songs like “Hellhound On My Trail,” James did much of his guitar work in open D tuning.
