From Brad on 2:

Country trio BlackHawk (Goodbye Says It All) will make a $15,000 donation next week to the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center in memory of their former member and co-founder, Van Stephenson, who died in 2001 from skin cancer.

The group set up a memorial fund in Van’s name when he passed away. The $15,000 will be used for melanoma research.
The two other guys, Henry Paul and Dave Robbins, have taken on a new member, Anthony Craword, and they’ve now got a deal with newly-formed Rust Records.

[Sorry for the space-wasting picture layout, but for whatever reason, image alignment breaks in this template and I don’t know why.]

First of all, I love this news. For obvious personal reasons, it touches me to see the $15K being donated and earmarked for melanoma research.

Secondly, the fact that they’ve regrouped and have a new deal inspired me to write a song. But it was taken from one of the 13 songs I already drafted this month, so my NaSoWriMo count didn’t increase. Oh well.

Thirdly, and I truly don’t mean to sound in any way disrespectful, but didn’t Van Stephenson (at least in that picture) look a lot like (a younger) Timothy Busfield (with a mullet)?

    I think Van looks more like Jesus.

    To answer your question, no. In fact, I thought when I first saw the picture (before reading the post), “Is David Duchovny doing a movie as a country singer with a mullet?” David Duchovny. Definitely.

    it doesn’t break on mine. it’s a style somewhere in the CSS that comes with your chosen template. it can be overrode, though.

    Well, I had the first one aligned right and the second one aligned left, but they both looked terrible so I just threw them each in their own line. But I guess I need to dig into the template again at some point (that’s always a slow weekend project, and I don’t see one of those coming up for a while yet) and try to resolve it.

    Is that the same Van Stephenson who did “Modern Day Delilah” sometime in the mid-80s?
