“I’d like to wear a rainbow every day, and tell the world that everything is o.k.
But I’ll try to carry off a little darkness on my back.
Until things are brighter, I’m the Man in Black.”

Counting the days to get a set of his stamps.
Date of release not yet known.
Hot. Damn.
The forever stamp, which will be square to resemble a 45 rpm record sleeve, is based off a photograph of the “Walk the Line” singer in 1963, as he recorded “Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash.” The stamp will be released later this year and will cost the same as any other stamp — a newly raised 46 cents.Johnny Cash to grace new postage stamps via CNNMoney.

To the man in black
The best thing I found in Hollywood, asides a dark cool dive bar, with cold beer and a Keith Richards Shrine. It does exist, and we found it – not far from the main touristy Boulevard stretch.


I find it very, very easy to be true 

I find myself alone when each day is through 

Yes, I’ll admit that I’m a fool for you

I’ve started to play a significant amount of Johnny Cash again in the last few weeks.
Comes and goes, but has mostly lingered for many years.

As a teenager I didn’t know where Jackson was, but I knew I wanted to go to Jackson.
Which are your favorite singles? Or favorite memories while listening a song?
Knowing my audience quite good, I know that at least one of you got to see him in concert, perhaps before I was born..
