armadilloface5:41pm: I couldn't handle J.C. with a handlebar
A friend of mine told me that he saw a picture of Johnny Cash with a beard. I said this is absolutely impossible.... the man simply didn't ever EVER grow a beard. 

But maybe I'm wrong?

armadilloface11:32am: Tell that long tongued liar and that midnight rider that God's gonna cut him down

I just got two Johnny Cash albums. 'American V : A Hundred Highways' and 'The Gospel Collection'

The last JC album is so gorgeous. You can hear how fragile his voice is and yet the songs have never felt more dear. 'Four Strong Winds' (written by Canadian Ian Tyson) 'Like The 309' and 'God's Gonna Cut You Down' are pretty righteously bad ass songs.

This Marks the Man In Black's First-Ever Number One Debut. Check out the new single "God ’s Gonna Cut You Down" Johnny Cash's "American V: A Hundred Highways" (American Recordings/Lost Highway) debuts at Number One on both the Billboard Top 200 Albums and Top Country Albums charts. The album, which was released on the Fourth of July.....

armadilloface11:18am: You can talk the talk... but can you walk the walk?
I'm doing my best to channel a young and wild Johnny Cash in this video. 


Something must've worked because we ended up walking away with 'Best Performance' of the day.

splott8:16pm: Seeking a Specific Picture
I started a portrait of Johnny Cash a few months before he died, and I'd like to finish it, but I lost the picture I was drawing from.
I'd torn it out of a Rolling Stone, a couple/few months before he died. It was a full-page photo, but not a cover. It's a late picture, he's got white hair and tons of wrinkles, and he's looking right at the camera pretty much straight-on, and I think he has one hand below his chin altho I'm not positive about that bit. The background was some warm color I think, red or orange...or maybe golden wood?
I've searched the Rolling Stone website and I can't find it. If anyone knows which pic I mean and/or could tell me at least which issue of the magazine it appeared in so I could order a copy, I'd be eternally grateful!!


EDIT: Incidentally, it's the same time-frame as this pic from looking_glass's journal. :)

didjagripweed8:24pm: If merits a cut..lemme know.
I read Bob Dylan's Chronicles last week and of the hundreds of passages that stuck out, this one seemed especially relevent ;)

(He's refering to his Oh Mercy album here):

"I wasn't sure that we had recorded any historial tunes like what he (his producer) had wanted, but I was thinking that we might have gotten close with these last two. "Man in the Long Black Coat" was the real facts. In some kind of weird way, I thought of it as my "I Walk the Line", a song I'd always considered to be there at the top, one of the most mysterious and revolutionary of all time, a song that makes an attack on your most vulnerable spots, sharp words from a master.

I'd always thought that Sun Records and Sam Phillips himself had created the most crucial, uplifting and powerful records ever made. Next to Sam's records, all the rest sounded fruity. On Sun Records, the artists were singing for their lives and sounded like they were coming from the most mysterious place on the planet. No justice for them. They were so strong, can send you up a wall. If you were walking away and looked back at them, you could be turned into stone. Johnny Cash's records were no exception, but they weren't what you expected. Johnny didn't have a piercing yell, but ten thousand years of culture fell from him. He could have been a cave dweller. He sounds like he's at the edge of the fire, or in the deep snow, or in a ghostly forest, the coolness of conscious obvious strength, full tilt and vibrant with danger. "I keep a close watch on this heart of mine". Indeed. I must have recited those lines to myself a million times. Johnny's voice was so big, it made the world grow small, unusually low pitched-dark and booming, and he had the right hand to match him, the rippling rhythm and cadence of click-clak. Words that were the rule of law and backed by the power of God. When I first heard "I Walk the Line" so many years earlier, it sounded like a voice calling out, "What are you doing there, boy?". I was trying to keep my eyes wide open too."

I just downloaded this video, and I love it! I laugh each time I watch it, so I thought I would come and share it here. It's a video of John impersonating Elvis, and its priceless.

braintoad1:14pm: I'm surprised there hasn't been any posts about it yet.

Today is Johnny's birthday.  So Happy Birthday to the Man in Black.


Happy Birthday John Ray Cash

Your music changed my life and many others.
Your music and influence will never be forgotten.
Your music touched thousands of lives and I doubt it will ever stop touching lives.
From With His Hot and Blue Guitar all the way down to American IV: The Man Comes Around, everything you've done has been fantastic.
Feburary 26, 1932 is when you were delivered to use and September 12, 2003 was when you left us, those 71 years were probably the most wonderful years this world has seen.
I love you Johnny, we all love you. We miss you and we thank you for the years of music and the years of joy to come from further listening.

I remember the Man in Black.

fnord2312:23am: new memberness

I was listening to "The Highwayman" today, and it made me cry when it got to the part with johnny- "or i may even be a single drop of rain, but i will remain...and i'll be back again and again and again"

I've always loved that song, (and waylon and willie and kris) and it just hit me hearing it that Mr.Cash is gone...but maybe not ya know? Its odd to hear a song about reincarnation from 4 country artists.

I'm Amanda. *waves hi*
