I just finished the book a few minutes ago, shifting consciousness from the snowy, subzero photos to this warm, sunny CA morning. The book is superbly crafted in a style that is Tom Groneberg (who writes one of the book jacket endorsements) meets John McPhee. I have pushed cattle in Montana and currently work on a 250 acre ranch--a mere back 40 to the Sun Ranch's vastness--and will always think of the wolf-elk-cattle drama in "Badluck Way" relative, and not entirely un-analogous to, our daily matches of heron and coyote against ground squirrel and deer. I hope Andrews will write another book very soon.
Do you have contact info for Dane? I need to get in touch with him!!

Hollywood loves to ruin things. Honestly, I don't know why they haven't tried to remake more Best Pictures. I think Sean Penn was smart enough to stop them back in 2006. Way to take one for the team, Sean!
Ah, but the cartoons and movies crapped all over the comic books. Fair's fair.
This is not accurate. There are two separate facilities at Lompoc, a federal prison camp and a penitentiary, and it has been this way since well before 1990. the penitentiary has always been a very rough, violent prison, never a "Country club." There are fat, lazy officers, and there are very hard working conscientious officers, but some, convicts and journalists alike like to paint with a very broad brush. There are also convicts that are very likeable and pleasant to be around and others that make your skin crawl. Prison is a microcosm of society. Some convicts piss, moan and complain every day they are in prison and others make the best of a bad situation. Just like real people, right?
"American Land" is also a great Springsteen "land" song.
Of course I'll be wearing my grandpa sweater!
Here's the event link to Chris and Tig's show at the Big Sky Doc Film Fest:
We tried to pitch this to WEIDE (for Curb Your Enthusiasm):
He never replied.
The album title certainly draws attention. We are all sinners, after all, but for the blood of Christ.
Hi Andy. Nice work.
If you're interested in promoting a show at the ZACC, it's a pretty easy deal. And straightforward. I don't know what exactly constitutes "legitimate" in your book, but there are relatively small handful of volunteer folks who are trained to open, run, and close the space and they do regularly. If you'd like to receive the training, I think that it's perfectly fine that you request it from ZACC staff. Regardless, as a volunteer-run operation, it requires you have a trained volunteer on hand at your show, to help you run it. These folks got an email when you inquired, and it may simply be that they're otherwise busy.
Venues most missed. The White Birch, The Nunnery (Mostly for Parties), The Toole Shed and if you want to get a laugh, Mr. Bo Jangles.
I had a show booked at the Hammer Haus when it got closed. I immediately sent a message to the ZACC Below to see about transferring it there. I got an auto-reply back that basically said, "don't call us, we'll call you." I don't really have a problem with how anybody chooses to run their own space, but so many promoters I know are so busy tha they need gentle reminding that you're still there and need an answer. So I tend to agree with the Kaimin that there are no legitimate all ages venues in Missoula.
Here's the auto-generated reply:
Hello and thanks for submitting your event to the ZACC Below!

nice Gilbert Grape reference.
I love Tom Petty's songwriting, but I think his voice sounds like hell.
What's yer beef with Petty, The Man? Just curious...
Thanks, Eric. I just corrected it. Apologies for the error.
