So this happened while I was in the mountains. As you can tell from my commentary, I know a LOT about bear behavior, especially their climbing abilities.
This post is several years old but I find myself thinking about it very often, so I finally went back and found it.
Shandon’s commentary is excellent, particularly:
“Don’t jump bear. Don’t do it. You’ve got so much to live for.”
Those words spring into my mind anytime I see anyone or anything climbing dangerously, be it a child or a squirrel or an insect.
Traditional flamenco is a singer’s art, born in the cradle of Roma culture in Spain. De Lucia was neither a singer nor Roma, which makes his accomplishments all the more extraordinary.
The world just lost a true guitar hero. I’m barely familiar with his work outside of the amazing performances on the Friday Night in SanFrancisco album, but I’m entirely certain that the man was a true master of his art and one of the greatest guitarists who ever lived.
Thankfully he leaves behind a large catalog of recordings for us all to enjoy, remember him by, and use as a completely realistic, albeit unfair, measuring stick for other guitarists.
I’m surely not the first person to make this connection. I’m just surprised it took me so many years to get here.

Yup. They sound great. And huge.
It would take approximately thirty-nine Arcade Fires to create the same sound that these three guys made in this performance.

Me to Heather, mockingly predicting what the annoying male contestant is going to make: “Derrrrrp. Yeah I’m going to make a Bread Pudding Burger!”
Audio from the TV: “I’m going to make a Bread Pudding Burger.”
Me to the TV: I told you! Goddammit! You’re so predictable!
Me to Heather: If the next girl makes French Toast, I’m going to kill someone tonight!
Me, mockingly predicting to the TV what the respectable female contestant will make: “I’m going to make Coconut Ice Cream and a Hamburger Bun French Toast!”
Audio from the TV: “I’m going to prepare a Shaved Coconut Ice Cream and Hamburger Bun French Toast.”
Heather, terrified and jumping away from me: “Oh!My!God! BB! WHO ARE YOU GOING TO KILL?!
Both of us: *uncontrollable laughter*

It’s safe to say it was the happiest year of my life!
I think I’d give 175 days to save the world from dubstep, particularly the way it has infested nearly every other genre.
