10 Questions - Jack Russell by Prewitt Scott-Jackson

Today we track down Jackdaw Russell in the wild for 10 Questions. A high-octane member of Whiskey Folk Ramblers and The Daybreak Hits, superlative artist, lover of fowls and uncommon dervish of the whirling variety, Jack's probably more fun than legally permitted in our region. 

Catch WfR May 4th at Tin Panther, Jackdaw will have his bad ass prints available at East Main Arts Festival in Arlington May 5th, and at the end of the month get out for The Daybreak Hits Record Release party at MASS on May 25.

Buy his art and have the decency when you see him out to give him whiskey. --LB

1) With which creatures do you share your quarters?

3 humans, 2 dogs, downright reckless amounts of cats, all the chickens I can get my hands on (13 & counting), and ducks!!

2) Most likely Pop Culture Alien Overlord?

Hello Kitty. Like you could disobey or say no to Hello Kitty.

3) What can’t you live without?

I’m going to skip all of the boring things that i literally could not live without and say: nerdy sci-fi/ fantasy books.

4) Most Important Morning After Food?

Grease. Preferably Ol’ South or Waffle House grease.

5) Personal Symbol of Freedom?

The gaping black abyss that has replaced all hope and meaning.

6) Build a Bridge or Open a Door?

Can it just be a log over a stream? That one.

7) Super Hero Alter Ego?

Anyone remember Marvel’s Speedball? He bounced around all over the place and people put up with him okay. He tried to help.

Democrats. Beto 2018.

9) Given the choice to come back as any animal, which one would you choose?

Jack Russell Terrier. That would blow minds.

I Like This Song - Majik Taylor's "Hold On, Sanity" by Prewitt Scott-Jackson

I Like This Song celebrates songs by local bands sans clichéd music journo over-analysis.

The furthest we take the dissection of songs featured here is, well, you guessed it: "I Like This Song." 

---

Today's featured song is the lead single from Majik Taylor's forthcoming debut LP Bad Facesa Get With It! Records joint flying your way May 12th.

As fate would have it, Majik Taylor is slated to perform this Friday night (May 12th) at Fort Worth's newest venue Main at South Side (aka MASS) with Signals & Alibis + ATX'er Julian Neel.

Music starts at 9pm, full event details posted here.

There's so much magic happening in this Majik Taylor musak vid-yo that we are officially changing our name to David Blaine Noise. Srsly, I already fwd'd the directive to our IT guy. 

Look, we try to hide our bias for everything Get With It! but THEY KEEP MAKING HITS! (More hits than Sony anyways).

I mean, what would you have us do?

Now, let's see here.. what clever but not-too-clever way can we go about breaking down this song??

Hmm??

Well, Shia doing a pretty great job of it.

Or should we go full Olsen twin?

G.O.B. perhaps??

Not sure which GIF best represents our feelings towards this track, but I do know this: I like this song.

about the word writer person:

Prewitt Scott-Jackson writes Dad poetry & short fiction when he's not hyping and typing for Fort Worth Noise. His writing can be found in Ghost City Press (New York), Five 2 One Magazine (Los Angeles), and Sick Lit Magazine (Texas), among others. He prefers short walks on the beach because – and I quote – “It’s really hard to walk on sand.”
