    Not Mt. Rushmore and never will be, but notable as a fine Kentucky artist, Covington native and Scott High grad Jesse Thomas wasted no time running off to L.A. immediately following graduation, and turned critics' heads with her tasty folky outpout on her first EP in 2010. I've had the pleasure a couple of times catching her live on tour when she made her way back home to play locally. Here's a fantastic in-studio performance from her...

    Over the last 15 years or so Louisville native Jim James has become massively famous as the leader of the jam rock band My Morning Jacket, and pretty much now is being considered the father of the this hippy genre now that Jerry Garcia has passed. Just like Deadheads who travelled the country following The Grateful Dead, you now have hippies far and wide traveling to follow Jim James and My Morning Jacket. Here is My Morning Jack live on...

    Not yet Mt. Rushmore, and perhaps never will be depending on who's doing the judging, but noteworthy nonetheless, 33 year old Cellist, singer-songwiter, and multi-instrumentalist Ben Sollee from Lexington, Ky has steadily been mounting his music career with his very tasteful blended brand of heartland folk, bluegrass, jazz, and classical putting out 10 full length releases over the last 9 years. Aside from his own solo work he has worked with...

    Of course not all of these would make Mt. Rushmore, but it's an interesting list of some of Kentucky's greatest singers and musicians... Kentucky's Greatest Musicians - Kentucky for Kentucky

    nees1212 just made me recall something that happened to me 28 years ago. When I was 25 I took my first plane flight to visit a friend in California for a two week visit where in that time period we were all up and down the coast as far south as Laguna Beach, and as far north as Oakland. We drove the long Highway 1 from Venice Beach, where she was living, to San Francisco to hang out there for New Year's Eve. On New Year's Day we drove...

    I promise you that until this post here that you are responding to, I hadn't even thought of it, and I assure you that you are completely wrong with thinking that this is where I was purposely headed, as I was most certainly not, and even with the post you are referring to, while it is race related, it was not all all meant to turn the entire topic in that direction, yet only to magnify the origins of serviced dining as food for thought, if you...

    Most certainly, and then you must pay for the food that you order. My questioning is more related to the formality of having someone serve you at a table, waiting on you hand and foot. What are the reasons and origins of this type of social convention, and the tipping that goes along with it? Why is it that restaurant owners just don't pay a decent wage to their employees and the tipping policy done away with like it is done in other...

    To expand just a bit on this idea of superiority, there is a fantastic exquisite 4 story mansion at the corner of 4th & Broadway in downtown Cincinnati called the University Club where the patrons are by and large extremely wealthy white folks. Though not widely known, from its inception many years ago, and still today the entire service staff of this establishment is 100% African American. While it is true that this place offers people...

    Not exactly. I'm not saying that this is the reason, or even the only reason, but asking if for some if it is, and of others just what is their reason.

    Served dining leads to tipping, and I'm questioning some of the possible reasons of this social construct, and, right, wrong, or indifferent, how we came to consider it the common practice that it is. In England for example, there is no such practice of tipping, and while visiting there I was informed that tipping could be viewed as an insult.

    When I was a freshman in H.S. I joined the track team to throw 8 lb Shot Put & Discus, and with literally no true guidance, decent enough strength, or any previous experience with it, I was absolutely horrible, and no doubt the worst on the team. In competition my throws didn't even qualify to count. Day after day in practice my shot put throws were awful. One by one each team member would take their turn being mindful to not throw until the...

    Let me first be clear that I in no way would ever go as far as trying to campaign that our culture do away with the much patronized and popular social construct of table serviced dining, and considering that there are countless restaurants that offer more of a serve yourself alternative, depending on one's preferred style of eating out, people have numerous options regarding what suits them, and can choose accordingly. Using Riverfront Pizza...

    So this dude Durnad Jones and his band The Indications from Bloomington, IN played a free show tonight at MOTR on Main in OTR downtown Cincy, and because I was asleep at the wheel, and didn't think to check to see who was in town that might be worthy of checking out, I missed what was probably a pretty decent sounding live free club show. :banghead:

    Concrete Blonde - "Joey" (1990) This song is about being in love with an alcoholic. Concrete Blonde lead singer Johnette Napolitano wrote it about Marc Moreland of the band Wall Of Voodoo. Moreland died of liver failure in 2002.

    Jimi Hendrix - "The Wind Cries Mary" (1967) Jimi wrote this in 1967 for Are You Experienced?; it was inspired by his girlfriend at the time, Kathy Mary Etchingham. He'd gotten into an argument with her about her cooking. She got very angry and started throwing pots and pans and finally stormed out to stay at a friend's home for a day or so. When she came back, Jimi had written "The Wind Cries Mary" for her.

    Neil Diamond - "Sweet Caroline" (1969) Diamond wrote this song about his second wife, Marcia Murphey, who he married in 1969 (they divorced in 1995). He needed a three-syllable name to fit the melody, however, so "Sweet Marcia" didn't work. The name Caroline is one he had written down, and it fit the song perfectly, so that's what he used.

    I'm a little late in submitting reviews for two awesome free Fountain Square shows that I attended on Wednesday and Saturday night, but better late than never. Wednesday night is Reggae night on Fountain Square, and with the weather absolutely perfect this one was massively attended to enjoy the happy peaceful jammin' sounds of the Jamaican group "The Talking Dreads" who wonderfully mixed traditional Reggae tunes with Reggae versions of...
