RIP Andy Griffith
« on: July 03, 2012, 01:46:30 PM »
A really big influence on me growing up.  From the New York Times: 
Quote
Andy Griffith, an actor whose folksy Southern manner charmed audiences for more than 50 years on Broadway, in movies, on records and especially on television most notably as the small-town sheriff on the long-running situation comedy that bore his name died on Tuesday at his home on Roanoke Island in North Carolina. He was 86./quote]
Never regret money spent on old books, old dogs or old friends.

Andy, the Godfather of ambient music. He'd sit out there on the porch tweeking away at his Moog modular late into the evening.....just amazing. Gomer would stop by and say, "Shazam! What the hell is that?". Of course nobody in Mayberry would ever "get it" but he didn't care.
Ambient isn't just for technicians!

The artist isn't a special kind of man, but every man is a special kind of artist.

Don't be afraid to grow, give yourself a chance.
