An offbeat, unusually compelling on-the-road magazine by way of blues singer, Carl Gustafson, who says he does not like track, in reality, he prefers silence. (Calling to brain keyboard immortal and whimsical Glenn Gould who he stated he did not like piano music.)

Who is Carl Gustafson, you'll ask? An iconoclast, a insurgent, a provocateur.

A flag bearer for human dignity?

An Indiana Jones type adventurer, seeker of fact, justice and a greater American means? convinced, certain, definitely.

An outsider artist, a Henry Darger operating in obscurity on his grand imaginative and prescient for his oversize cloth of existence, and wishing to percentage it? Oh, definite.

And combine this in, too: one half Edward Abbey for his meticulous strength of statement ("I want that mankind, wealthy or terrible, may perhaps a minimum of plant a unmarried flower or signal their signature upon their existence in a few specified approach. in the event that they do, i'll become aware of it."), one half Thoreau logging nature notes, one half Kerouac at the highway, one half Dylan Thomas raging into the nice evening, and at last nineteenth century French composer Hector Berlioz writing his funny and insightful Evenings within the Orchestra - in simple terms this time the orchestra is a blues band.

Another half anthropologist Margaret Mead residing one of the natives, one other half Zen grasp along with his Buddhist reputation, reluctant or in a different way, of all issues round him on any given day, he rigorously observes and notates the entire minutia round him on any given day, all of the whereas maintaining a talk with himself, occasionally bemused, occasionally indignant, occasionally transcendent.

The writing this is paradoxical, maddening, complex by way of turns....and then suddenly riveting. you will see your self in those pages - that is the riveting - after which, i feel you could simply see the chance of your greater self, too. that is the magical.
