And the rocks might melt and the sea may burn.”

Welcome to Yakutat

While en route to the Yakutat Lodge, two people in a car were charged by an agitated bear. A warning to anyone contemplating picking up a hitchhiker.


TajMo

Bluesmen Taj Mahal & Keb’ Mo’ have released their first album together, and are now touring the Globe.

Albany, NY: 8.17; Minneapolis, MN: 9.6; Des Moines, IA: 9.13; Austin, TX 9.22

You’d think an enterprising young man could make something work with those choices.

“There’s something working in life, in the Universe, in the bigger picture, that has nothing to do with commerce and money. I found after 20 years of going after money, that the faster I ran after money, the faster money ran. I finally ran out of breath, and stopped running” — Keb’Mo’

A bear walks into a liquor store…

Roger Thibodeau posted this video of a bear walking into his Juneau liquor store around 8:30am Friday morning. I appreciate the bruin taking its time to make a decision at the candy rack: “Do I feel like a Kit-Kat, or am I hungry for a Snickers? I can be a real bear to be around when I’m hungry.”
Unfortunately, the bear was shooed off before he decided.

After leaving the liquor store, the bear wandered over to Harri Plumbing and Heating, next door.


Normandy

This drone footage was taken in 2014 during the commemoration of the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day Invasion. It’s some phenomenal footage, and I thought today would be an appropriate day to share it.

This came to C-to-C via Milwaukee

Gregg Allman at the keyboard and his brother Duane on guitar in 1971

The world has lost another musician and an incredibly unique voice. Gregg Allman, co founder of the Allman Brothers Band has passed away. A band that was constantly tied to tragedy, starting with Duane’s death in 1971 from a motorcycle crash, the Allman Brothers pioneered “southern rock”. It should be noted that the band members themselves tried to distance themselves from that term. “I’d rather be known as a progressive band from the South,” said guitarist Dickie Betts. Their live performances were the best in the business.

Gregg Allman was 69. RIP.
