Okay…completely random but Dolly Parton is just hilarious.  I love her interviews and how she’s so honest and funny.   It’s a very weird mixture of her being self-deprecating, but also proud that she’s really trying to be the best person she can be.

So anyway… Great voice, great song writing, great sense of humour, great honesty, great charity.   She really just seems like an all around good person.

Anyone that can refer to themselves as looking like “hammered snot” is A.O.K. in my book.

Dolly’s Hammered Snot interview with Ellen

BBC Interview about her book charity

Also for your listening pleasure I really dig this song…

Okay… So Utah Phillips.   He died in 2008 and I’m pretty bummed about it.   The weird part is that I agree with very little of the stuff he advocates, but I love to hear him say it.  He tells stories and passes on a lot of knowledge that seems to have fallen through the cracks.  The part I like the best is that they are stories.  He makes them feel personal and intimate for you.  He is basically what I always pictured in my mind when I hear the phrase “spin a yarn.”   

So before I launch off on a free-speech well… speech… here are a couple of clips of good ole Utah… and a really cool stencil at the bottom that I’d love to get on a T-Shirt some day.

This is what Utah thinks was the funniest story he ever told was: Utah’s Funniest Story Ever

I want this T-Shirt

Just for a moment read this article ignoring all the talk of UFO’s.  I actually find this very interesting.

or this one

Okay…so something hits a wind turbine, or it has some sort of structural failure.  Whichever it is, the part that I find interesting is that they can’t find the 3rd blade.  The turbines at this farm are actually a smaller variety as its blade was only around 65 feet long while other turbines I’ve seen have blades well over 150 feet.  Okay… so the part I find interesting… the blade is large and fairly heavy.  Where the hell would it go?  If there was some sort of structural failure and the blade flew off, can’t someone do a quick back of the envelope calculation and figure out the possible distance it could have flown?  Why haven’t they been able to find it?  

Hmmmm…. weird.
