notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

I Guess We Remain the Same

September 9th marked what would have been Otis Redding's 65th birthday had he not tragically died in a plane crash. I missed this date and for that I am sorry. For those of you who only know Otis by "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay", I urge you to invest in a greatest hits to better educate yourself. I'd say he's without peer and his recording career spanned a measly seven years, he sure as hell didn't mess around.

This site does more justice than I ever could to the man himself. Hurry, you'll get some great tracks by the man; I recommend the live version of "Satisfaction", "Cigarettes and Coffee", "A Change is Gonna Come" and, well, all of them to be honest. Enjoy.
