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.
Al Barger and MoreThings - getting people's goats since 1998.
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, 3-9-2010: Jimi Hendrix, Broken Bells, Gorillaz Definitely Jimi Hendrix is the big enchilada this week. Valleys of Neptune is a whole hour worth of previously unreleased studio recordings. Most of them were cut with the Jimi Hendrix Experience as parts of a possible follow up to Electric Ladyland.
Broken Bells is a collaboration of James Mercer from the Shins and Brian Burton aka Danger Mouse. I haven't heard this, but Mr. Burton was co-creator of the greatest pop song of the decade, so that alone rates a close hearing.
