Since this song is probably not new to anyone, if you’d like to go back in time for a vintage live version of this classic hit from 1972ish click this link. (This video was my first choice but it said this video can’t be embedded and must be viewed at Youtube.)

Behind this edition of Slash’s Stash: I picked up this cigarette box that someone had apparently thrown on the ground. I can’t stand that people litter, it’s really sad. This was in a national forest even. I thought of this song so I hung on to it. Finally picked up some wine. Now I can recycle the cigarette box! (This Merlot by Cable Car is a nice easy-to-drink dry red wine for under $10.)
Fun music fact: It’s Bob Dylan’s birthday. Born Robert Allen Zimmerman May 24, 1941.
Special Note: Thanks to everyone who has sent well-wishes and love to Slash & I. We are having a lot of fun with this cat blog because of you, thank you!

Grandmother’s Buttermilk Cornbread
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup cornmeal
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8 inch square pan. Melt butter in large skillet. Remove from heat and stir in sugar. Quickly add eggs and beat until well blended. Combine buttermilk with baking soda and stir into mixture in pan. Stir in cornmeal, flour, and salt until well blended and few lumps remain. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

I really liked this recipe because of the buttermilk. It came out very moist, fluffy, with a great buttery flavor. I used organic medium grind cornmeal, whole grain and stone ground which added a nice grainy texture. After trying the medium grind cornmeal I think the coarse grind would be too much for me. Serve with real butter and honey. Great cornbread recipe, enjoy!
The song is “Keep Off The Grass” by Todd Snider

It’s been a month now since our road trip to Flagstaff, Arizona but it seems like it was only yesterday because the memories are so vivid from the experiences that touched my heart. I wrote about the experiences I’m referring to in my last post Poverty, Stray Dogs, And A Solution To Dog & Cat Overpopulation. I’d like to share a little more about the trip which has to do with another passion of mine that’s right up there with cats – music! Afterall my cat’s name is Slash.
I’d like to dedicate a song to our recent trip. I chose this one because it best represents the impression the area left me with. The song is called Depression by Ryan Bingham. The YouTube video below is by The Roadhouse KEXP and is a live acoustic version.
The concert that we went to see in Flagstaff was Todd Snider, a long time favorite of ours. My boyfriend has followed his career since the early 90′s. We’ve both seen him perform so many times it would be hard to name them all (which I’m sure you don’t mind). The Flagstaff show was the first time our friends saw him perform solo and as usual he did not disappoint. The last time we saw Todd together was when Great American Taxi (one of our friends favorite bands) was touring with him.
The photo above is from the show that Todd and Taxi preformed on Halloween last year at the Fillmore in Denver. Todd was Bob Dylan for the night and the members of Taxi dressed up like nuns. It was a nice treat to hear them cover some of Dylan’s classics.
This photo below is of Todd & Taxi from The Boulder Theatre in the Winter of 2010.
It seems that Todd is more well-known these days and other musicians are covering his music. While it’s nice to see more people discover his musical talent I can’t help but cherish the good old days when he wasn’t so mainstream. I’m happy for him though and he definitely deserves it. He’s put in many years of ”paying his dues”.
In an attempt to tie back to this cat blog, I hope that one day after “paying my dues” the first group of CatPurrology subscribers will be glad to have followed in the beginning before it became so popular – yeah right! Bloggers can dream though can’t we? All joking aside, I wonder if there are other cat admirers who are also just as passionate about music? I know that Coffee Kat is a music lover.
