Sunday Sounds

Sunday Sounds

Mystery And MannersSunday Sounds counts as a soulful, reflective glance on days at hand…like a literary church show or something…laid back and hopefully a redemptive article for every Sunday.

Well, Thanksgiving is over and the holidays are on…
My Georgia Bulldogs managed to beat state rivals Georgia Tech yesterday, which should really serve as the Dawgs’ bowl game. By the way…more Athens, Georgia, news on the way next week. Florida vs. Alabama next week should be interesting. NFL on Sundays always proves as a medicinal tonic, and this is the meat of the season. Sports remain a cultural bond we all look forward to following for engaging emotions without grave stakes...like art. It’s a story, but I’ve had enough of Tiger driving his Escalade into a tree this weekend. As the sun sets...

Today’s musical rotation sounds like this:
Gram Parsons: “One Hundred Years From Now”
The Louvin Brothers: “Satan Is Real”
Ben Harper: “Picture of Jesus”
The Jubilee Gospel Team: “Oh Lord, Remember Me”
Bloodkin: “Limb From Limb”
The Black Crowes: “What Is Home?”
Blind Willie McTell: “You Got To Die”
Reverend Pearly Brown: “You Gonna Need That Pure Religion”
Bob Dylan: “Going Going Gone”
Jim Dickinson/Ry Cooder: “Paris, Texas”
Tom Waits: “Come On Up To The House”
John Coltrane: “Love Supreme”
Otis Redding: “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long”
Widespread Panic: “Nobody’s Loss”
The Georgia Sea Island Singers: “Moses”

Literary mentions for today include:
Paul Hemphill’s “Georgia, Georgia” from Too Old To Cry
Stanley Booth’s “The King Is Dead! Hang The Doctor!”
Hunter S. Thompson’s “The Great Shark Hunt” from the book of the same title

The film mention stands as Jim Jarmusch’s Dead Man.

Quote of the day: “Knowledge and courage. These are elements of greatness. Because they are immortal they bestow immortality. Each is as much as he knows, and the wise can do anything. A person without knowledge is in a world without light. Wisdom and strength are the eyes and hands. Knowledge without courage is sterile.” –Balthasar Gracian

Well, that's today's episode of Sunday Sounds. The photo above is credited to the great William Eggleston.  Rest Easy,
