OnePlus Buds Pro Headphone

This wireless Bluetooth model from OnePlus delivers very good sound quality and active noise reduction, combining elements of in-ear and earbud earphones. These earphones have an isolating design and an ambient sound monitoring feature; they will provide some muffling and electronic canceling of external noises and reduce the amount of sound that escapes from the earpieces. As such, they are best for those who want highly portable earphones that reduce the noise they hear from their surroundings or don’t want the sound from the earpieces to disturb others.

2 Kool 2 Be 4-Gotten


This is hands down, the best song in the Lucinda Catalog. Lucinda describes the inspiration for this song coming from a book of photography by artist, Birney Imes (out of Oxford Mississippi), entitled Juke Joint.  One image includes a few guys playing pool in a juke joint. The background wall is tagged with the core inspiration for 2 Cool to be forgotten. “too cool to be forgotten, June Bug vs. Hurricane”.

“Sorry, no credit. Don’t ask. House Rules. No exceptions: No bad language, No gambling, No fights. June Bug vs Hurricane”. June Bug vs. Hurricane, hey hey.

Try to paint a more vivid portrait of a moment in timelessness.

Steve and Lucinda

 Lucinda Williams and Steve Earle, fine artists each on their own. Lucinda has a special emotional place in my heart for the Car Wheels on a Gravel Road release. If you have not yet listened to the entire album, start to finish, stream it this weekend. You will not regret the aural experience. Those more adventuresome may want to purchase the Austin City Limits live concert performance of this entire release (video included below). Steve Earle deserves our full attention.  I have not given him his just due, yet we start at the beginning with Copperhead Road (see below) and take it to his Death Penalty opposition period, with Ellis Unit One.

There is a Lucinda track from the new release, Good Souls Better Angels,  especially attention worthy,  entitled, “When the Way Gets Dark”.  It is a simple plea, helpful to all, when the way gets dark, don’t give up.  This heartfelt encouragement is especially needed at this difficult time of stupendous uncertainty, change, tumult and big decisions. Thank you Lucinda for expressing this in such a sweet and beautiful way.
