Malcolm Holcombe

Drove with Robin to Devil's Backbone to hear Malcolm Holcombe. A dark and stormy night. Elemental. Strange, beautiful.

free stuff

January 26,2009

Turning our backs on the National Mall for a moment.
In that post Inaugural moment.
States and Cities are positioned like reptiles at the Alligator Farm, mouths wide open.
The free stuff.
Toss the chicken.
Alejandro Escovedo was at the Gravity Lounge ten days ago.
Visit his web-site for free stuff.
Music from "Real Animal".

Met Mr. Washington two weeks ago. He has a mission, a ministry, singing. No plans to stop until everyone has a home. "Come to Me"

Bach, Flip, Marvin Brown, Look3

Still alive. The Festival of the Photograph, "Look3", Nick Nichols vastly expanded backyard party, going on in Charlottesville. Heaven on earth. People with cameras everywhere, music everywhere, images everywhere.
Moncure talked me into Flip video. Amazing little machine, what have the digital Gods wrought.The fabulous Marvin Brown plays Bach.
Two photojournalists staying here in the Starkes house, Sahal Abdulle from Mogadishu and Paul Brown from Beckley. Both troublemakers in their home places.
Trouble is what good journalists do.

while bob was hiding

Malcolm Holcombe is at Gravity Lounge tonight. I don't have any shorthand to adequately describe Malcolm. He is a singer. He is a songwriter. He is a creative genius.
On a good day he might do better than that. Listen.

At City Council Monday night it was mentioned that Mayor Brown is a fan of "The Wire". Mayor Brown is a Holcombe fan as well. World class taste!

not forgotten

?Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather
have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.? - Aristotle

Malcolm Holcombe's
CD will be released tomorrow. Malcolm's music was the inspiration a year back for a photo essay on excellence.

Twin Oaks

Drove out to the Twin Oaks community with Danny Schmidt and Devon Sproule. The short story is 102 people being nice to me. Pay it forward. Sproule and Schmidt are musicians + both have connections with Twin Oaks. The community fed me, let me sit next to a wood heater and listen.

There are days when I feel like I am sitting on the sidelines getting ready to be readmitted to the game of life.

Being with these players, with these kind people, gives me cause for optimism.

Memo to Mr. Dylan-Bob: both these musicians dance around the genre question: jazz/folk/roots? Spin them on your XM show and possibly you could supply a label?

getting there

Navigating an anfractuous landscape, happiness and melancholy, steeply up and down.
Creating images the work proceeds on two fronts, physical and emotional. The physical work can be corralled with methodology. The emotional work, it's like night.

to life

easter sunday, 1989, lee park

I had a chance to pick 20 slides and put them to music. I worked it the other way around, picked the music and found twenty images.

The song is Mama Told Me So by Malcolm Holcombe.

It's a Quick Time movie, big download, 3.0 MB.

That's J.R. above, vocalist. We were at the same place at the same time Saturday night. I asked and he gave me photo permission.

I have piles of pictures, compulsive habit, can't stop now. Being pushed out of my house by prints, negatives, photo paraphernalia. Can't stop now.

I want to stop. Right now I want to stop.

Wake up tomorrow and begin again.
