BMF LOVED MISS CHICKY. Why did you have to go baby?

This song “The Man Comes Around” was written entirely by Johnny Cash not long before his death. It was one of Jeff’s most favorite songs and he had asked The Unsatisfied to cover it for his birthday party in 2010. They did a beautiful job.

You can run on for a long time but sooner or later God’s Gonna Cut You Down.

BMF gave me a 000017 today for his birthday. August 5, 2017

I have this wonderful string of August days that include some of my most beloved people’s birthdays. My mother on August 4th, my Shelby on August 7th and most of all my BMF today on August 5th.  He would have been a certain age but now he is ageless. When we were first together he didn’t feel his birthday was such a big day. He would say oh it’s just another day. I said that is ridiculous. Your birthday is the greatest day of your year! And from that first birthday we spent together we would celebrate and make his birthday a big deal every year. Sometimes it was just simple with a bottle of absinthe, crazy loud music and a deck of cards, sometimes a small party with family and cake coring, trips to see the Sex Pistols and Van Halen but in 2010 BMF had the biggest most epic punker birthday ever to happen as far as he was concerned. We thrived on it for a long time. He was in love with it!  We were going to try and top it, but we never did.

Now he’s gone and I’m alone on his special day. I plan to celebrate him quietly with marathon work on MusicFilter. He would have liked it. I started tonight to refresh and restore his box trilogy posts at MusicFilter. Those boxes represent so many things that were going on with BMF at the time in 2009. He built them with his hands and he enjoyed it and was so proud of the result. He was really very happy creating them while listening to his music, smoking cigarettes and sipping bourbon all night. When he finished his punk rock shed he placed the trilogy so he could always see them, open them and enjoy them. Now his remains rest inside one along with his special favorite items and photos and I can see and touch and love them. These are priceless artifacts and a reminder of this man I loved so much.

And then he rewards me with his signs. (more…)

No Values

No Values / some history

no values was on Black Flag’s second release, an ep called “Jealous Again”. Greg Ginn wrote the song and Keith Morris originally sang it. My fave version of the song was done by Hank3 on the West Memphis benefit album put out by Henry Rollins ,which by the way was one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to.

My NEW favorite version of No Values is now by The Unsatisfied with guest shouts by ME….awesome. Be sure to take the time to listen to, get to know and rock your balls of to The Unsatisfied if you haven’t already.
