Dwight Yoakam Teams With Jack White to Record Two Classics
Dwight Yoakam is like a bottle of bourbon from his home state of Kentucky—he just keeps getting better with age. On June 10, the master of honky-tonking, hip-shaking and heartbreaking is giving fans a little something to sip on: two new tunes.
Dwight teamed with Jack White at his Third Man Studio in Nashville to record two classic songs—“Tomorrow’s Gonna Be Another Day” and “High on the Mountain of Love”—as part of Jack’s Blue Series, which has featured artists such as Beck, Tom Jones and Shovels & Rope, among others.
“Tomorrow’s Gonna Be Another Day” was originally featured on the Monkeys’ 1966 self-titled debut album, while “High on the Mountain of Love” was written and recorded by Harold Dorman in 1960 before being covered by a bevy of artists, including Kenny Lynch (1960), Johnny Rivers (1964), the Beach Boys (1965) and Charley Pride (1981).
You don’t have to go back very far in Dwight’s catalog to hear the influences of the Beach Boys. Check out the soaring harmonies on the guitar-propelled “In Another World” from Dwight’s 2015 album, Second Hand Heart, for more than a hint of Brian Wilson and company.
As part of the Blue Series, singers and bands traveling through Nashville are invited to Third Man Studio to record a song or two to be produced by Jack, who then releases the songs as soon as possible on 7-inch vinyl and digitally. Dwight’s new tunes will be released on June 10, available for pre-order now.
Vox editor suspended for encouraging riots at Trump rallies
Does Emmett Rensin look like a Scared Little Terrorist?
An editor with the website Vox was suspended Friday for a series of tweets encouraging protesters to “start a riot” at Donald Trump rallies – shortly after the Republican candidate’s supporters were attacked outside a San Jose rally the night before.
Was this Woman pelted with Emmesin Eggs?
“We welcome a variety of viewpoints, but we do not condone writing that could put others in danger,” the site’s founder, Ezra Klein, said in a statement announcing the suspension of Emmett Rensin. Emmett, deputy editor for the site’s first-person section, had taken to Twitter as reports first emerged of the chaotic scenes Thursday night outside the California rally, where protesters confronted supporters of the presumptive GOP nominee as they departed.
Law abiding good American Trump Supporters were punched, kicked and verbally assaulted in many way by Mexican flag waving liberals, while and one woman was seen on film being hit with an egg and other trash.

Rensin tweeted that it’s “never a shame to storm the barricades set up around a fascist.” He then posted Advice: If Trump comes to your town, start a riot.
His suggestion was followed by a series of similar statements. “Listen, if Trump is Hitler then you’ve got no business condemning rioters. If he isn’t, you’ve got no business pretending normal is better,” he argued.
Several bloggers, including Ed Morrissey of the conservative Hot Air, criticized Rensin’s comments, but it was not until Friday afternoon that Klein chimed in. A frequent commentator on MSNBC, Klein left his position as a Washington Post columnist to start Vox in 2014.
Is America being invaded by Mexico?
In announcing Rensin’s suspension, Klein asserted he welcomes debate, but that “direct encouragement of riots crosses a line between expressing a contrary opinion and directly encouraging dangerous, illegal activity.”
Do All Anti-Trump supporters have such long fingers?
Meanwhile, Trump commented on the San Jose chaos during a rally Friday afternoon in Redding, Calif., calling some of the protesters “thugs.”
Rensin continued his tweet-storm well into Friday morning, while clarifying and defending his position.
He wrote: “I wonder how many of the people beside themselves about anti-Trump riots have called for armed revolt against Obama in the past 8 years?”

The Outcome Is Up To You
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
You determine the outcomes in your day to day life, because God has given no one but you power over your options. When things aren’t working out for us, we often look elsewhere for the reason. Like Eve, we say, ‘The devil made me do it.’ No, Jesus said, ‘…I give unto you power…over all the power of the enemy…’ (Luke 10:19).Like Adam, we say, ‘Eve made me do it.’ But the Psalmist says, ‘…I trust God, so I am not afraid. What can human beings do to me?’ (Psalms 56:4). Sometimes we believe circumstances beyond our control are responsible, but with God ‘…all things [including people and circumstances] work together for [our] good…’ (Romans 8:28)—not for our defeat! Your misbeliefs victimize you and predispose you to a lifestyle of trying to change people and circumstances. That’s like attempting to unscramble an egg. You become a blame-fixer instead of a problem-solver. Accept the truth that no matter what Satan, others or circumstances do, God gives you the right to the last word in your life. ‘…greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world’ (1 John 4:4). The outcome is not determined by what goes on around you, but by what goes on within you. ‘…as he thinks in his heart, so is he…’ (Proverbs 23:7). The devil can only determine the outcome with your permission and co-operation—and you don’t have to give them! So believe in God’s ability to bring you triumphantly through this difficulty.
Prayer Heavenly Father,
my eternity is in Your hands, You give me all that I need to face the issues before me today.
Now the choice is mine on what I do today. May what I do be what Your will is.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen
