Roy Buchanan, One Of The Pioneers Of The Telecaster Sound. Roy Buchanan has long been considered one of the finest, yet criminally overlooked guitarists of the blues rock genre whose lyrical leads and use of harmonics would later influence such guitar greats as Jeff Beck, his one-time student Robbie Robertson, and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons. Although born in Ozark, AR, on September 23, 1939, Buchanan grew up in the small town of Pixley, CA. His father was both a farmer and Pentecostal preacher, which would bring the youngster his first exposure to gospel music when his family would attend racially mixed revival meetings. But it was when Buchanan came across late-night R&B radio shows that he became smitten by the blues, leading to Buchanan picking up the guitar at the age of seven. First learning steel guitar, he switched to electric guitar by the age of 13, finding the instrument that would one day become his trademark: a Fender Telecaster. By 15, Buchanan knew he wanted to concentrate on music full-time and relocated to Los Angeles, which contained a thriving blues/R&B scene at the time. Shortly after his arrival in L.A., Buchanan was taken under the wing by multi-talented bluesman Johnny Otis, before studying blues with such players as Jimmy Nolen (later with James Brown), Pete Lewis, and Johnny "Guitar" Watson. During the mid- to late '50s, Buchanan led his own rock band, the Heartbeats, which soon after began backing rockabilly great Dale ("Suzy Q") Hawkins.
On April 15, 1839, after 3.5 months of what the prophet Joseph said was his trial “equal to that of Abraham”, and while being taken to Boone County, the men were allowed to escape after the sheriff and 3 guards drank whiskey while the 4th guard helped them saddle their horses to escape. The first 2 photos show Liberty Jail as it stood until it was no longer used in 1858. It remained vacant for several years and was used as an ice house until it was purchased in 1904 by Leroy Stephens. He tore down the remains of the upper floor and built a house on the original foundation. In 1939, Wilford C. Wood bought the house for $400 and donated it to the Church. Then in 1949 Brother Wood purchased the house next door for a missionary couple to give tours. The Liberty Branch held meetings in this home for a time. The current visitors center was built in 1962 and has a reconstructed cut out of the old Liberty Jail inside. You can see the original Liberty Jail key on display. #churchofjesuschristoflatterdaysaints#doctrineandcovenants#libertyjail#ldshistory

He had me at his teeth. 😂😁 It's evolved over the years. Things to include, but not limited to: his prayers, his love, the finger his daughter has him wrapped around, his bond with his son, his depth of character, and still those teeth! Happy Father's day to my partner in offspring. #anomally#hitthebullseye#babydaddylove#pioneers#love#givemeyourforever 💙
Day 16 - Most consumers have no idea how much Matthew Carter’s work has affected their daily world. From designing typefaces for corporate branding to solving printing and readability problems, Matthew Carter has designed typefaces for any occasion. From retail fonts such as Verdana, Georgia and Big Caslon, to being commissioned by Time, Newsweek, SI, Business Week and many other printed publications, there doesn’t seem to be an industry where Matthew Carter’s influence is felt. He has taught classes at Yale and lectures frequently. His talks are as educational as they are funny, and you walk away learning more than you would have in many typographic-driven lectures.

A small, tiny, miniature disclaimer: this theme is flexible! If there is another designer pioneer whose work you’re passionate about, you can use her/his name (as long as they are not part of the list for the first week). It does not necessarily have to be Max Miedinger. If you choose someone else, share some of their work with the rest of us…that way we all learn something new 👍😀
I’m looking forward to seeing all of the lettering from everyone as we explore the world of design and typography! Be sure to hashtag #20MinutesOfCray and #crayligraphy, and tag @crayligraphy, @20minutesofcray, and @typebynikita for a chance to be featured in our stories!

Leaving to trek...and 3 days later after crossing Wyoming and all it threw at us - High winds, storms, rain, full HOT sun, meeting 7 teenagers who became our instant family, traveling the same trail the early pioneers walked on, gravel hill (the steepest part of the real trail from Iowa to salt lake and whoa! That was a lot of work to keep our handcart from taking us all down with it), a water crossing with our handcart where the water was up to my mid/upper thighs....and I'm tall! 😯 Ticks, mosquitos, thunder and lighting, staying warm through the night...and dry....passing pionner graves, seeing the trail markers left so they knew where to go, being rained on, our handcart tipping over, staying in the same places they camped, a real pony Express stop from back when it ran, women only handcart pull....teaching and reminding us that there are times we need we need to stand on our own and in our own strength and step forward in faith, silent pull that allowed us to hear the sounds of the handcart and nature around us, sitting on buckets as chairs that double as our "luggage", sweating, muscles burning, breathing in dust, dust and more trail dust, walking uphill for 2 hours and digging deep to keep going, crying, sliding down hills as the handcart dragged you, falling, stumbling, dodging "fresh ones" on the trail aka cow poop, mud, and taking time to enjoy it all including some Virginia reel/Johnny O style dances with over 300 people in a meadow in the middle of no where Wyoming, tug of wars, campfire chats, laughs, testimonies, stories, connecting ......and on the second night as I crawled into my sleeping bag in our tiny tent I said "I just love trek! It's great!" ....and all Steve Pyrah could do was laugh at me.
Can You Believe There Was A Time When People Who Were Labeled Advocates, ACTUALLY Advocated For Their Oppressed Community Members?
People Such As, Sylvia Rivera, Marsha P. Johnson, Miss Major Griffin Gracy, And Countless Others Were REAL Pioneering Freedom Fighters And Liberators.
These Amazing Selfless Ahead Of Their Time People Did THE REAL WORK. They Cared About Moving The Movement Forward And NOT About Clicks, Views, Wearing Fancy Dresses And Making Television Appearances.
As Long As Their Are People Being Murdered In Cold Blood In The Streets Worldwide, The Advocacy Work Isn’t Done.
When You Celebrate Gay Pride, Please Know It’s These People Whom You Should Be Grateful For! #OutMagazine#SylviaRivera#MarshaPJohnson#MissMajorGriffinGracy#Pioneers#Icons#Legends#Liberators#HappyPride2019#KnowYourHistory #HeavenlyTouchHairDesignByTaye❤️💇🏾🙏🏽💆🏾♀️
