Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday


Inspired by the book Timber by Ralph W. Andrews. Soundtrack provided by Buzz Martin, the fantastic logger/country singer and songwriter from Oregon's coast range. He was born in a tent and died in a hunting accident in Alaska in the early 80's. I was told about Buzz by Lelan at M&L rare records and models in Ravenna. Thanks Lelan!

Monks with Guns


I was recently at the Vatican and while strolling through one of the Pope's libraries I stumbled upon this picture. I believe these monks were a vigilante sub-sect of the Benedectine order of monks. They stockpiled weapons and artillery well up into the 1970's.

My Dream Had No Name (Raiding of Baranov's Castle)


A new scene from My Dream Had No Name. Wherein something ancient and strange is stolen from Baranov's Castle in Russian Amerika. Soundtrack provided by myself finger picking the dulcimer to the archaic tune Nine Hundred Miles (a relative of Rueben's Train and Train 45). This tune will be on the limited edition vinyl lp soundtrack to accompany the book.
