Tappin' that Thing/Expressman Blues

I once camped out on a beach in the freezing cold amidst an insane rainstorm. I had to set up my tent in pitch black with no flashlight..... I was ill prepared to say the least. The focus of this trip was a weekend-long Mandolin workshop in Cape Cod. I opted to camp for 15 dollars/night rather than spend the 90 dollars for the on-site cabins. The special guest at the workshop was the great Rich Delgrosso and the whole experience got me familiar with Blues music, and more specifically, mandolin blues. Two years later and accompanied by the unfortunate passing of the legendary Jack Rose, I started exploring more old-timey music and pre-war genres after attending the Jack Rose Tribute show in Philadelphia (which, amazingly featured artists such as Thurston Moore, Paul Flaherty, and Chris Corsano). It also helps that a co-worker who devotes much of his livelihood to American folk genres sported me a hard drives-full amount of his collection. Thanks! Above is some more recent blues mandolin that I stumbled upon after looking into the likes of Yank Rachell and Sleepy John Estes. All while going nuts over the new Freeway and Jake one Stimulus Package, of course. -Jagwire

One time in middle school, I wrote POWELL Skateboards a letter in search of this legendary video called "The Search For Animal Chin". I'm sure it was a letter filled with some innocent skaterat words that any other company would have laughed at or completely disregarded. But POWELL responded back. Not only that, but they sent me a free copy of the video (which wasn't even available in stores at the time) and a giant sticker. I was stoked, and I still have love for them today because of this. Thanks guys.
