We’ve probably reached Peak Marfa.
Can’t wait until the Coen Bros make this into a movie.
A somewhat more sensationalistic look at el Valle de Juarez.
New Mexico’s favorite industry is back in business.
What I’m Listening To:
Dwight Yoakam-Secondhand Heart
Man, I am really glad to see Dwight Yoakam back on a major label and making new music. He’s going out on tour again, and Sam Outlaw is opening for at least one date if you want a great night of California country, that’d be the one to see. Dwight’s always played with form and sound, trying to meld a lot of different things. His newer stuff seems more ragged and rockin’ drawing more on Liverpool than Bakersfield. I’ll take it.
What I’m Drinking
Shiner Birthday Beer. I try to pick up a sixer of these every year. This is certainly one of the most memorable of their birthday beers, a chocolate stout that tastes pretty much exactly like a chocolate cake. This one’s good in small doses, since it’s heavy and rich. Definitely best enjoyed on it’s own or after dinner.
