Did this yesterday. Today in contrast has been super stupid. I think somebody stole my identity and its hindering my ability to get a tax transcript. Now I sit in the IRS office with a number and hate everything. Ugh.
Happy 81st birthday to the Coal Miner’s Daughter Loretta Lynn.
In a career that has spanned 50 years Loretta has has had ten Number 1 albums and sixteen Number 1 singles on the country charts.
A number of her hits became a center of controversy upon release and were subsequently banned from some radio stations. These songs include “Rated “X” (a song the double standards divorced women face), “The Pill” (about a woman new liberation due to birth control) and “Wings Upon Your Horns” (about the loss of virginity.)
Loretta is touring this spring and summer playing select dates throughout the US.
Yesterday we drove up the coast and were so close to San Francisco that we said fuck it and kept driving. We had about six hours today for me to cram in as much stuff to drag my dad and brother around to see in the city as possible before having to make the nine hour drive back to Vegas. It’s been three years since I’ve been there and it’s weird to look back and think of how much living and going to school in the bay changed things for me. I was standing in Chinatown and got a call from savannah saying I got into SCAD with a pretty bangin amount of scholarship money. So I guess it starts again, big changes in the near future and shaky hands all day. Damn.
