Personal Canon: “How Crayons Are Made”
On Episode 8 of the 11th season of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Mister Rogers showed us a film that has always stuck with me—and which has stuck with many of you, too—about how crayons are made. Mister Rogers’ show was always so calm and informative and direct that it pulled you right into it, and that power has not lessened decades later. This segment has, for whatever reason, fascinated many of us ever since we first saw it. I have never been in a conversation about Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood where this segment didn’t get brought up in the first five minutes.
You can watch the six minute segment here on PBS.com.
I absolutely remember watching this when it aired… It’s stuck with me ever since, too…
New record this Summer… Not a Born and Raised “plus”… A new group of songs to bring the whole thing up to date with Summer 2013. I have that hunger that always precedes something meaningful. See you all soon. And thanks for the warm welcome back to the stage. Getting back on it a little at a time.

“Nathan For You” is the funniest show on television.
The new Hendrix album is really great. It’s mixed to sound TOUGH, it’s in your face, there’s no crazy stereo effects… It sounds like a Black Keys album. There have been dozens of posthumous Hendrix releases, most of them reshuffling the same catalog of unpolished jams, but this is an important document. The way I see it, the records that spell out the Hendrix legacy are “Are You Experienced”, “Axis: Bold as Love”, “Electric Ladyland”, “Cry of Love” (or whatever re-release contains those tunes), “Band of Gypsys” and now, “People, Hell and Angels.” This is one of the best sounding albums I’ve heard in a long time, and it’s the most blistering Hendrix sound recording to date.
I would love to hear the three studio releases with this treatment… check out Axis: Bold as Love vinyl LP in MONO if you want to hear Hendrix in a similar fashion…
