Kevin Nutt's avatar View Kevin Nutt's profile Options

Scratchy vanity 45s, pilfered field recordings, muddy off-the-radio sounds, homemade congregational tapes and vintage commercial gospel throw-downs; a little preachin', a little salvation, a little audio tomfoolery.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/12 8:02pm sinner:

I'm a little under the weather. Otherwise, fine. Thank you.
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:03pm Dafydd:

Sorry to hear that . . . the music should be good medicine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/12 8:04pm sinner:

You are right! Plus some strong hot coffee....
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:06pm Dafydd:

Is the Pleasant Grove on CD?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/12 8:07pm sinner:

Yep. This May Be My Last Time Singing on Tompkins Square records. 3 CD set. All killer.
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:16pm Dave B:

a little bourbon goes a long way too!

if it doesn't help directly, it sure helps to forget
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/12 8:17pm sinner:

...watch that David....
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:19pm Dave B:

apropos that the lyric just hit home...

"Ain't room in the church for the drunkard..."

I'll behave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/12 8:21pm sinner:

Hah! But also we can remember Psalms 104:15 "Blessed is the wine that gladdens men's hearts..." This verse is not in the Baptist Bibles....
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:21pm Dafydd:

I hunted for the Pleasant Grove set with no sucess -
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:23pm Dafydd:

Hey, no whining you two!

  Thu. 3/22/12 8:24pm Dave B:

I'm not whining....

I'm bourbon-ing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/12 8:28pm sinner:

I love puns.
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:29pm ADM:

I'm beginning to think that there's no better A Capella music than in Southern Gospel.
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:30pm ADM:

There is an ethos here: doing the most with what you have.

3 skunks walk into a church one Sunday. The preacher say to them "I'm sorry but you're going to have to sit in your own pew." How's That?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/12 8:32pm sinner:

Hah! Hah! Love it. This is not a pun, but: What's the difference between a Methodist and a Baptist? A Methodist will say hello to you if you run into him at the liquor store....
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:33pm G:

There was a never a Christian or Catholic prohibition on alcohol, just on misbehaviors you may commit while on it.

The Christian anti-alcohol thing in the south started during the great revivals of the early 1800s. Baptist and Methodist cuircuit preachers and revival preachers looked to attract working class southerners by inveighing against the diversions of well-off southerners -- gambling, dancing, drinking, etc. It was a sociological clarion call that had nothing to do with Christian theology or Christian historical practice.

New England prohibition has also comes out of early 19th rigoristic Christian revivals, but within the Congregationalist tradition (not Baptist or Methodist, as in the south).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/12 8:33pm sinner:

ADM: That Blue Jay Singer track just kills me with all those vocal colorations.
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:34pm Dafydd:

Why don't Baptists have sex standing up? It leads to dancing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/12 8:38pm sinner:

Hey G: Thanks for the post, but Baptists are anti-intellectual too! Sounds like you have read Christine Heyrman's Southern Cross: The Beginnings of the Bible Belt.
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:39pm Dafydd:

Why do you have to take two Baptists with you when you go fishing?

Because if you just take one, he'll drink all your beer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/12 8:41pm sinner:

Dafydd: More hah, Hah!! The fishing joke is my all time favorite Baptist joke.
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:41pm Dafydd:

It seems there was this minister who just had all of his remaining teeth pulled and new dentures were being made.

The first Sunday, he only preached 10 minutes.

The second Sunday, he preached only 20 minutes.

But, on the third Sunday, he preached 1 hour 25 minutes.

When asked about this by some of the congregation, he responded this way.

The first Sunday, my gums were so sore it hurt to talk.

The second Sunday, my dentures were hurting a lot.

The third Sunday, I accidentally grabbed my wife's dentures... and I couldn't stop talking!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/12 8:44pm sinner:

As a husband I would like to officially distance myself from the joke of my colleague.......
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:44pm Dafydd:

There's a little old Christian lady living next door to an atheist. Every morning the lady comes out onto her front porch and shouts "Praise the Lord!".

The atheist yells back, "There is no God".

She does this every morning with the same result. As time goes on the lady runs into financial difficulties and has trouble buying food. She goes out onto the porch and asks God for help with groceries, then says "Praise the Lord".

The next morning she goes out onto the porch and there's the groceries she's asked for, of course she says "Praise the Lord".

The atheist jumps out from behind a bush and says, "Ha, I bought those groceries - there is no God".

The lady looks at him and smiles, she shouts "Praise the Lord --- not only did you provide for me Lord, you made Satan pay for the groceries!"
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:51pm Dafydd:

Thanks for the great music, I hope you enjoyed the jokes. Good night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/12 8:53pm sinner:

Love the jokes! Of course! Be well.
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:54pm Dave B:

Meghan's doing a "Seven Sins" theme next week on Underwater Theme Park. I'm having a hard time finding songs for "gluttony"...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/12 8:55pm sinner:

She is? I'll have to listen in..maybe that would be a good time for the bourbon....
  Thu. 3/22/12 8:56pm Dave B:

Thanks for the music Kevin. Til next time
  Thu. 3/22/12 9:05pm G:

@sinner 8:38pm: Sorry, had to go out for a little bit. I haven't read that monograph, but the rise of anti-alcohol/gambling/dancing in the south 200 years ago is part of standard American history-of-religion books...
