". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

YouTube Video for "Between Piety and Desire" from *Kiss You Down South*

Dan Rose made it, down there in New Orleans, where the Mardi Gras krewes are a-rollin!

A video for "Between Piety and Desire," cut #3 from Ned Sublette's album Kiss You Down South. Music recorded at Piety Street Recording in New Orleans, produced by Ned with Peter Gordon and Mark Bingham. It was a treat to work with Ned, and not too difficult, as I live, not between Piety and Desire, but a handful of blocks downriver of. All images acquired with me cellphone. Live footage was obtained during Ned's record release party on December 7, 2012, at Siberia, on St. Claude Avenue, New Orleans.
