Oh hi. How are you? It's busy as shit around here. I've done nothing but TCOB all week. For those of my friends off rambling the world riding powder, I tip my hat to thee. I'll be there soon...?

ANYWAY, watched that movie Lawless late last night. Do you know it?

I won't spoil anything by telling you that it's about bootleggers in prohibition-era Virginia. Also, Nick Cave wrote the screen play if that means anything to you.

Watch it because of the music (Nick Cave, plus haunting hillbilly bluegrass), watch it because Tom Hardy is quietly bad ass, watch it because of the hot-rodded Model Ts rigged to outrun the cops (whiskey runners really were the forebears of modern-day NASCAR), watch it because it's one of those sweeping family stories that you can't help but get caught up in.

I'm down for Tom.
