Apple Valley Hillbilly Garden & Toyland

Rosine Barn JamboreeOver the holiday weekend, I went with Mike Shiflet—who works with Two Dollar Radio on film production—to Western Kentucky to visit J.D. Wilkes, whose debut novel The Vine That Ate the South we're publishing next spring 2017. We are producing a video interview with J.D., who is the charismatic and spirited frontman of the group Th' Legendary Shack Shakers, who have been on tour throughout the U.S. and Europe for much of this year. J.D. took us to the Rosine Barn Jamboree on Friday night, listed by the New York Times as one of the top 52 destinations in the world, and then the following day to the Apple Valley Hillbilly Garden & Toyland, run by Keith Holt and family, which is such a brilliant, singular hodge-podge of artifacts and puns.

 

Since returning home, Eliza and I have been tearing through the Netflix series, Bloodline, which lives up to the high expectations set by the first season.

I've been reading a ton of submissions, but just picked up Alejandro Jodorowsky's latest from Restless Books, Albina and the Dog-Men.

Brett's been shooting hoops alone at strange hours of the day down at the secret public park Bball court. The nets are too small so I'm constantly having to jump sky high to knock the ball out of the net (because obviously I make every shot I take—eff you Steph Curry;).

Angel Olsen has a new album, MY WOMAN, dropping in September. I'm a total fan boy. She just released a self-directed music video for a new single off the album, Shut Up Kiss Me. I've probably listened to the song a hundred times in two days.
