“SNAKE FARM”

Panorama 1 edit b

We caught our nocturnal friends The Mag Bats playing at dusk for a change at Legend Brewery. Most of the time there’s next to no light where they perform. As we were leaving my wife was singing along with a song sung by Wes Freed that I captured some of on film (SNAKE FARM). Think he may have something with this piece although the Crow tunes and “Ghost Lady” are great too! compared to most that is grind out in Nashville. I do like the Nashville TV series and loved Dwight Yoakum but Wes is like no others. Hope this could be a bullet for them!

    Hey, thanks for the pics and video. I really appreciate that you came to the show and documented the evening. By the way, “Snake Farm” is a cover song – the original author is Ray Wylie Hubbard: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89VR_lZehw4

    • Thank You! Mr. Hubbard, Great Song! :

      “SNAKE FARM” Ray Wylie Hubbard

      Well a woman I love is named Ramona
      She kinda looks like Tempest Storm
      And she can dance like little Egypt
      She works down at the snake farm

      Chorus:

      Snake Farm – it just sounds nasty
      Snake Farm – well it pretty much is
      Snake Farm – it’s a reptile house
      Snake Farm – Uuuggghhhhh……

      Well Ramona’s got a keen sense of humor
      She got a tattoo down her arm
      It’s of a python eatin’ a little mouse
      Wearin’ a sailor hat that says snake farm

      Chorus

      I asked Ramona how come she works there
      She says it’s got it’s charms
      Nothing to do in the winter
      Now and then some kid gets bit at the snake farm

      Chorus

      Well Ramona likes her malt liquor
      And a band from Wales thats called The Alarm
      She said she cried when they broke up
      She still plays their records at the snake farm

      Chorus

      Sometimes Ramona calls me up
      And says come on down here, it’s getting warm
      She runs everybody off
      And we…you know…it’s a snake farm

    Isn’t that a buzzard in the photos? Those photos are starting to get viral on Facebook (I’ve seen ’em in 4 places now), but everybody seems to think the bird is a hawk. I think not?

    • It’s a Crow, just the way the light is hitting makes it odd. I always photograph buzzards too and have gotten home to find it was really an eagle in some cases. A Condor is sort of a buzzard so thunder winged birds as the native americans dubbed them should be appreciated too. The Rookery downtown is in a constant swirl of Birds of prey hovering above waiting to swipe an egg or grabbing a young bird in trouble. “C’est la vie”
