Oh wow! A "new" Monroe box set!

For devotees of Bill Monroe's music, the CD box sets issued by BEAR FAMILY beginning in 1989 were the answer to a listener's dream: having the bluegrass originator's complete recordings tastefully collected in boxes, with informative books included. What we now have is something even more dreamlike: all the familiar Monroe recordings for DECCA in 1950-51, featuring lead singers Jimmy Martin, Carter Stanley, and Edd Mayfield, presented next to unbelievably all the outtakes (none previously issued) of all the tracks. Among other things, this means multiple takes of Raw Hide. For musicians and careful listeners who have studied that spectacular recording for years, it's as though a new set of Stone Tablets has been found.

It also means the "tape blip" we've always tolerated in The First Whippoorwill is now corrected, as the previously issued take was from a faulty tape dub whereas the "new" 1951 version is from the original master. Accompanying this gold at the end of the rainbow is a revised discography by Neil Rosenberg, and notes by Dick Spottswood (edited by Rosenberg) with recollections by Monroe fiddler Charlie Smith. Bluegrass music at its finest!___

“So essentially, what you have is a battery made with some of the cheapest and most abundant materials you can find on Earth. And it actually has good performance,” said Dai. “Who would have thought you could take graphite, aluminum, urea, and actually make a battery that can cycle for a pretty long time?”

A cheap and efficient battery can be made from common materials: graphite, aluminum, and urea (a component in animal urine that is widely used as fertilizer). This could have enormous implications for bringing solar power to under-developed regions of the world.___“So essentially, what you have is a battery made with some of the cheapest and most abundant materials you can find on Earth.

Billy Redden - Deliverance

via Tom Isenhour who said:
And what become of the famous "banjo boy" from the scene in the movie "Deliverance"? Well, he's still kickin' around and still can't hit a lick on a banjo. Interesting interview with the boy who played the part in the movie from a few years ago. And by the way, anyone who knew just a little bit about bluegrass banjo knew the banjo you saw in the movie was not the one you heard over the big screen.

7 Women Smashing the Bluegrass Glass Ceiling
Bluegrass is often maligned either as one of the whitest American music genres, or one of the most male-dominated. Certainly, the main foundational figures of bluegrass were all men—Bill Monroe, Earl Scruggs, Lester Flatt, Jimmy Martin, Ralph Stanley. But women have been a part of bluegrass from the beginning, first with Sally Ann Forrester on accordion in Bill Monroe’s first band, and later with pioneers like Louise Scruggs, Earl’s wife and a powerful businesswoman in the bluegrass music industry, or Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard, a duo most often quoted as paving the way for women in bluegrass. Today, it’s not as hard to point to powerful women in bluegrass, from country star Alison Krauss (who has a new album coming this year), who got her start as a precocious bluegrass prodigy, to popular Americana artists like Sarah Jarosz or SaraWatkins... more »

END OF THE ROAD: A CONVERSATION WITH NORMAN BLAKE
February 10th, 2017 / BY JOSEPH TERRELL
But the bullet point version of his career misses what makes him fascinating: a stubborn integrity in his approach to making music -- commercial pressures be damned -- and a bizarre serendipity that’s led him right into the center of some of folk music’s most important moments of the past half-century. Now he’s capping off his long career with Brushwood (Songs & Stories), an album of beautiful, spare folk that is jarringly modern and political. The songs would sound timeless except that Blake is singing about social media and the Internet -- and he often sounds righteously pissed off. It’s hard to explain Norman Blake briefly, but the back-story is worth it.

Kenny Smith launches guitar instruction site
Kenny Smith has been a favorite among flatpickers since he popped up with Claire Lynch in the early-1990s, through his memorable stint with Lonesome River Band, his more recent career with his wife in the Kenny & Amanda Smith Band, and as a founding member of the Band Of Ruhks. Recordings with those groups, and his own solo projects, have established him as a technical master of the steel stringed acoustic guitar, and as a highly musical artist on an instrument often given over to repetitive patterns and stock licks.

The Pizza Saver
commentary from +Frank Beacham

If you’re one of the seven billion humans on this planet who enjoys getting pizza delivered to your door, you have a piece of plastic to thank.

Yes, that circular plastic thing that goes in the middle of the pie to prevent the pizza from sticking to the top of the pizza box. It's called a pizza saver.

It was invented on February 10, 1983 — 34 years ago today — when first time inventor, Carmela Vitale, file her patent for that piece of plastic.

That tiny little plastic invention has saved humanity from eating smushed and stripped pizza that has half of its cheese ripped off because the pizza got stuck to the cardboard top of the pizza box.

Without the pizza saver, delivery pizza as we know it would look more like blood and guts smeared onto a giant bread thing.

The Pizza Saver
commentary from +Frank Beacham

If you’re one of the seven billion humans on this planet who enjoys getting pizza delivered to your door, you have a piece of plastic to thank.

Yes, that circular plastic thing that goes in the middle of the pie to prevent the pizza from sticking to the top of the pizza box. It's called a pizza saver.

It was invented on February 10, 1983 — 34 years ago today — when first time inventor, Carmela Vitale, file her patent for that piece of plastic.

That tiny little plastic invention has saved humanity from eating smushed and stripped pizza that has half of its cheese ripped off because the pizza got stuck to the cardboard top of the pizza box.

Without the pizza saver, delivery pizza as we know it would look more like blood and guts smeared onto a giant bread thing.

In the power ranking of necessary ingredients to a good pizza delivery, the pizza saver is probably right after cheese and before any topping.

Because pizza boxes are typically made from corrugated cardboard boxes that are stiffer than most typical take out containers and are relatively decent at keeping food warm (as the corrugation process adds a sort of air space insulation layer), it has one design flaw: when a hot pizza gets placed inside the box, the top center of the pizza box starts to sag and droop because of the steam.

The longer the pizza is in the box, the steamier it gets inside the pizza box and the softer that top middle center of the box gets. The top of the box sinks and attaches itself to the pizza, flaying the cheese and excising the toppings upon the box's opening.

Enter the pizza saving genius known as Carmela Vitale, a local councillor and pizza lover from Dix Hills, NY.
In her patent, Vitale detailed the "package saver," which was a tiny temperature resistant tripod that provided support to the sagging pizza box. It would be placed in the middle of the pizza to maintain the structural integrity of the box.

So next time you order pizza, remember the thankless grunt work that the pizza saver does every time to make sure your pizza arrives in good shape. It's basically every pizza's guardian angel.

BTW, Vitale never got rich off her invention. She is a secretive woman and allowed the patent to expire after just a couple of years.___

The best virtual assistant appliance was invented by this teenager

Dylan Rose is kickstarting a new kind of wearable. It’s a virtual assistant appliance called Kai that clips onto any glasses and transmits audio through bone conduction. It’s a brilliant concept, but here’s the best part: Dylan is still in high school.

Tom T. Hall: The Person Comes First
You sit down as a person and write a song. If you’ve written a song by the time you stand back up, you’re a songwriter. But the person comes first. You can’t look at the thing from somewhere up above, or from some place of supposed knowledge. Anyway, if you look at the state of the world, mankind has a lot to be humble about.

Flatt & Scruggs
circa 1949
Lester with D18. Earl's banjo has a bow-tie neck with a hearts and flowers peg head. Banjo was sent back to Gibson and They put that on the Banjo. Gibson didn't do that kind of neck work anymore so they would pop the old finger board off and put the "Bowtie" fingerboard on.

What did Vizio know about what was going on in the privacy of consumers’ homes? On a second-by-second basis, Vizio collected a selection of pixels on the screen that it matched to a database of TV, movie, and commercial content. What’s more, Vizio identified viewing data from cable or broadband service providers, set-top boxes, streaming devices, DVD players, and over-the-air broadcasts. Add it all up and Vizio captured as many as 100 billion data points each day from millions of TVs.

H-O-L-Y C-R-A-P
