Full disclosure: the Townes Van Zandt film advertised to your right was directed by a friend of mine and produced by another. That aside, it is a compelling movie with a strange staying power. You don’t have to be a country music fan or a Townes aficionado to appreciate this one.

So do me a favor, give them a click thru.

Personal aside: as some of you will probably remember, I was introduced to the music and story of Townes Van Zandt by one Mr. Steve Earle, who played songs like Mr. Mudd and Mr. Gold as we sat in the back of a bare-bones tour bus driving from New Mexico to Colorado one fine afternoon. Which was, in retrospect, not a bad way to do it.
