"And the Sky Turns to Fire..."

I'm declaring today Patty Griffin Day here at YDLM. This is my Patty playlist on I think you have to do a quick sign up to the site to be able to hear these songs in their entirety (I may be wrong, let me know)...but it's WORTH IT. I've gushed over Patty over and over on my site, and I will never stop. She's my favorite songwriter. My friend Terra introduced me to her music a couple of years ago and it's changed/saved/touched my life many times over.

Press play and let 'er rip. Not everyone will be in the right mood to hear this music right now, but I'm certain it will touch *someone*...and that makes me happy:-)

Visit Patty at!

Oh and I don't know if Patty is gay, straight, bi or other, but when she's singing to me in my dreams, she does mention Home Depot a you do the math;-)

Hi, Arlan, I read the site everyday. I wonder if you might be interested in posting about my new blog, the VULVAlution. You can see it here:
It's a fierce feminist art project. I'd love your readers to know about it and submit!

YAY! I'm so thrilled you're promoting Patty Griffin. She is a f*cking amazing songwriter/singer & a very hot ticket in the TX music scene.

Thank you for mentioning Patty Griffin. I was introduced to her music a few years ago at a Megan Mullally concert and she covered 'Flordia'. Amazing.

Happy New Year!

Patty Griffin is incredible! I've seen her in concert and it was just indescribable. I'd have to say my favorite songs by her is "Nobody's crying," making pies," "rain," and "stolen car"
