This is some footage that didn't fit in the trailer, but a cool guy (a family friend) who drops some wisdom and picks some kale.

Michael Beach Nichols traveled to Nebraska, South Dakota, and Pine Ridge Indian country last summer to film this. He then worked on it all year, adding some footage at Humboldt House and stuff he taped at the last Krylls show. I think it looks great. I hope you do too.

The Plains' media moment
Picture The bestest of literary/news publications seem to have hit on how big, picturesque, and vital the Plains states truly are. First, the New Yorker featured my fellow South Dakotan Rebecca Norris Webb on its photo blog, for her beautiful photo project "My Dakota."

Then the same blog posted Dina Kantor's photos of Treece, Kansas, which is being relocated due to pollution. Dina is my friend Shira Kantor's sister, and they are documenting Treece together. (See the image "Ja...

My review of Luc Sante’s book Folk Photography: The American Real-Photo Postcard is now up on the Faster Times. It’s in the form of six real-photo postcards. Pictures by Jay “shutterbug” Davis.



While I’m updating things here, here’s an older post I should have put up: a blog on polygamous Mormons and Wallace Stegner.

Here are some links to Mike’s videos of me playing a couple of tunes in the late afternoon a couple of weeks ago. For some reason it looks like the videos won’t embed themselves, so you’ll have to click the link to see the fruits of his talents.

I scanned my Hellbender patches for illustrations on this piece. Plus, I used a flyer from the Rapid City Punk Rock Archive.

Just so you and I can keep track, here are my latest pieces on this world-wide web of ours:


1. a “review” of Joan Didion’s classic book, The White Album, up on the Faster Times.


2. an analysis of the poetry in the hate speech of the Rev. (for “reviled,” of course) Fred Phelps, Mr. God Hates Fags himself; this is up on the reliably fascinating Killing the Buddha.


3. a review of A Heartbeat and a Guitar, a book about Johnny Cash’s strange and brilliant album Bitter Tears, on the Faster Times as well.

The change in seasons, pollution, market fluctuations, and any number of other factors can leave your body vulnerable to attack by dangerous outside elements. Before you feel that first tickle in your throat, down a jigger of this booster cocktail to arm yourself.


In a small mortar and pestle (or with a zinc-galvanized nail in a thimble), crush:


2000 mg Vitamin C

1 dash instant coffee


Pour powder into a martini shaker and add:


5 pumps gel alcohol (such as Purell) with aloe

1 tsp. pomegranate juice

3 ice cubes


Crush, shake, and strain through a germ-proof facemask.
