The Lonely Goatherd Blog And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats - Matthew 25:32
Up to the minute notes on the current state of free thinking and free living: Kentucky moonshine - original analysis and reporting from MoreThings, and all round pop culture museum of sight and sound - photo galleries, mp3 and video downloads.

Live free or die!
I wouldn't want to ask people to just give me money cause they like my website, but do please take a quick look at Barger's Boutique. You might find yourself a little something-something for 2 or 3 bucks that you just can't resist! Any of the round images you find around MoreThings will get you to an Amazon page to buy my stuff and help ol' Al keep the lights on.
To explicitly state the obvious, these external links go to interesting and provocative websites, but they speak for themselves. I don't necessarily agree with anything they say - especially that no-goodnik Richard Marcus.

New CD Album Releases, 2-23-2010: Mose Allison, Chuck Berry, Snoop Dogg, Hall & Oates The most interesting proposition this week is Chuck Berry Have Mercy: His Complete Chess Recordings (1969-1974). These four CDs include 71 recordings made back home at Chess after several years at Mercury. His first record back was the classic "Tulane" and this includes his only full fledged #1 single, "My Ding-a-Ling."
Mose Allison - author of such classics as "The Summertime Blues" - is back this week with The Way of the World - his first album in 12 years. What I've heard sounds pretty groovy.
More Malice is a supplemental soundtrack follow up to Snoop Dogg's movie Malice N Wonderland. It contains five new songs, besides various remixes and whatnot.
