Any news of the ethnic breakdown of victims in El Paso? We know that Dayton was 6/9 AA folks

Seems odd we haven't (or at least I haven't) seen any reports of who was killed in El Paso ... not really ANYTHING about who they were.

Dayton was obviously later and yet by Sunday PM we knew the 6/9 number, so ...

Have I just missed it or has El Paso police still not released any such info? Maybe having trouble contacting next of kin for everyone, possibly?

r.e.m. - king of birds (studio-1987) singer ... sing me a song!

Missed 1 Sgt ;) My fate was sealed before I met you darling ... I was 1/2 down a shallow grave

so little room for you to catch me falling ... still you took the little love I saved ....

john hiatt & the goners - riding with the king (live-2000-ish?) B.B. & Clapton's cover was good, but

It's not better than John's original ... esp. not when played live with the legendary Sonny Landreth ripping it up on the Slide (or Ry Cooder on the studio version)!

lyle lovett & rickie lee jones - north dakota (live ... guessing 1994?) - drop dead gorgeous

I saw him on the this tour at teh Paramount Theater, Oakland, CA. Sadly no guest spot from Rickie that show, but it was still FANTASTIC. Joshua Judges Ruth is a phenomenal record ... and Lyle and His Large Band are consummate pros ... always put on an incredible show.

I remember in the morning waking up
With your arms around my head.
You told me, "You can sleep forever
And I'll still hold you then."

lyle lovett - tiny desk concert (live-2012) cause it's never a bad time to hear some Lyle ...

you know those songs that just wreck your s**t sometimes, and you love 'em for it?

More recently Phoebe, but going back a LONG time Conor (Bright Eyes) have been doing that to me. Their new collab is the bee's knee's to this old indie/americana fan ... not sure which of the two wrote it cause either easily could've, but regardless this tune is just ... devastating.

Are you kidding me with this sh*t:

My arms are strapped in a straightjacket
So I couldn't save those TV refugees

And Phoebe is a Goddess ...

From Jan 2019, right after the record dropped ...

April 2019, after some practice and work on the song ... both versions awesome ...

My telephone, it doesn't have a camera
If it did I'd take a picture of myself
If it did I'd take a picture of the water
And the man on the offramp
Holding up the sign that's asking me for help

I got a job and I'll work here for the summer
I fold the towels and set them by the pool
Everyone looks happy with each other
'Til they step away and say the thing they really meant
They always sound so cruel

I didn't know what I was in for
When I signed up for that run
There's no way I'm curing cancer
But I'll sweat it out
I feel so proud now for all the good I've done

I know a girl who owns a boutique in the city
Selling clothes to the fashionably late
Says she cries at the news but doesn't really
'Cause there's too much fun, too much time
And too much plastic money to be made

I didn't know what I was in for
When they took my belt and strings
They told me I'd gone crazy
My arms are strapped in a straight jacket
So I couldn't save those TV refugees

When they're on their backs
In a bloody bath
Full of sarin gas
On a screen

I didn't know what I was in for
When I laid out in the sun
We get burned for being honest
I've really never done ...
Anything ...
For anyone

To fall asleep I need white noise to distract me
Otherwise I have to listen to me think
Otherwise I pace around
Hold my breath
Let it out
Sit on the couch and think about
How living's just a promise that I made

justin townes earle - ahi esta mi nina (studio-2019) a duet of this song w/dad Steve would wreck me

May it one day come to pass ...

Oh mi Esmerelda, you's a sight for sore eyes
I'm just off the bus from Clinton, they put me out on (a bout?)
I'm on my way home to see mami now
Fancy meeting you along the way

Naw, don't go, ain't you got a minute for your old man
Let me buy you something to eat
Just a cup of coffee from a bodega
I was hoping we might get the chance to speak

There's so much I want to say to you
So much of which would just do no good
Like I will never ask you to forgive me
'Cause darling, I just don't think that you should

You're the only good I've ever done with my life
I've never done right by you
Might feel as though I owe you an explanation
But I think that you already know the truth

So I'll just say I'm sorry
But I know it's not as simple as that
I think you and I both know better
Than to think that we can do a thing about the past

So how 'bout that cup of coffee?
Give me a cigarette, I know you smoke
'Nuff about me, let's hear about this boy that you've been seeing
Baby, I think you'd be amazed by what all I know

I know you look just like your mother
When you look at me that way
You know that look, it never worked for your mother
So what makes you think it's gonna get you any place?

Ahi esta mi nina
You have such a pretty smile
Ahi esta mi nina
My only child

shakey graves w/shovels & rope - unknown legend (studio-2015) cover of a great Harvest Moon track

Great stuff ... two of my favorite current acts, covering one of my favorite records ...

reina del cid and toni - luckiest man (live-yesterday) a totally random surprise ...
