Those Darlins

"The artist is the opposite of the idealist. The artist does not tinker with the universe, he recreates it out of his own experience and understanding of life." -Henry Miller

Blur The Line feels like an eponymous debut. This record is not a departure, nor is it simply growth. It is a realization purely of where Those Darlins are as artists right now. With Blur The Line, Those Darlins take away the labels and constructs that people use to define, categorize and finally destroy. They don't want to hide or create some manufactured mystery. They show it, reveal it. That revelation is more powerful than anything else.

Those Darlins entered the public eye in 2008. They took on matching surnames and announced themselves a gang of resilient outsiders, apiece a misfit of southern upbringing, with its problems and charms. Their self-titled debut carved out an ethos and a spot on the map. Their warning: they weren't just anybody's darlings; if you didn't want them in all their wild glory, you didn't need to hang. They followed that rural-tinged debut with Screws Get Loose – a spiky garage/art rock album that launched them onto the international scene. However, growth can be painful. In those travels and the travels that followed, the collective appearance they had cultivated began to strangle their individuality.

Jessi, Nikki, and Linwood set out to uncover the true complex, contradictory nature of themselves as individuals and as a band. Over a year in the making, Blur The Line is the product of this search. It was written and recorded during their first extended time off the road since formation – this time with a lineup evenly divided between the sexes after the addition of Adrian Barrera (Gentlemen Jesse & His Men, Barreracudas).

The result is a record to file on your shelf between Patti Smith's Easter and Fleetwood Mac's Tusk. Blur The Line is a first-rate album of powerful tracks that mingle heavy rhythms and distorted Neil Young guitars with ear-candy harmonies and a slew of captivating lyrics. The band called on Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, John Cale, Jeff the Brotherhood) to produce Blur The Line, and it turned out to be a revelation – a chance to stretch and give shape to their work with his supportive, ordered back demeanor and experienced hands at the helm.
Blur The Line is a look inward, asking larger questions and tackling an archetypal theme – the opposing forces that lurk in us and in our world. "This might be the most important theme on this record," states Nikki, "Balance and finding equilibrise within ourselves and others."

This isn't mopey existentialism; it's a salute to what's always been at odds in our world, and the beauty that comes from that friction. Asking huge questions leads to great art. The record is an exploration of dualities: masculinity/femininity, nature/civilization. Blur The Line is nothing if not forthcoming, alcoholic with sardonic humor and overt sexuality, coupled with sincere vulnerability and often brutal honesty. "I don't think a three piece female band could have prefabricated this album," notes Jessi. "Nor could an all male band."
On BTL, it's Those Darlins' capability to equilibrise and love both the masculine and feminine powers (as all great rock does) that gives them potency, and in that crucible, great music is prefabricated – without the reductive and often exclusionary world of "women's" rock. Feminist critics deride oevres by bands like Led Zeppelin as oppressive and one dimensional while ignoring their long womanly hair, flowing shirts and moaning falsettos that sing, in truth, of women's actual power, albeit to the sound of phallic guitar thunder. On the other hand, Patti Smith makes no apologies about her love of men and male-created art. She comprehends the power of both male and female etc, and chooses simply to be an artist. Balance.

The sparks of the band's self-scrutiny might have been lit during the band's European tour last summer. A German broadcasting interviewer asked of the band, "Are you optimists?" After some blank stares, Linwood moved the conversation along. But Jessi couldn't shake the question – or her inability to answer it. "I was hung up on the realization that the answer was no. I remembered a time when I was an optimist, but somewhere along the road that had changed. I wanted to get back to an optimistic point of view." Her eventual reply became the lead lyric in one of Blur The Line's most potent numbers, "Optimist"—"Used to be an optimist / It got too dangerous."

Listening to the album's bookend tracks, we hear the band's musical and thematic approaches at work. Their modern take on the underpinnings of rock and roll is revealed, bubbling up from the gritty traditions of both white rural folk and African American blues. Starting with the graphic, moving narrative of "Oh God," a modern story that chronicles a shadowy exchange with an unsettling host of visuals, and ending with "Ain't Afraid," a vivid and blustering 12-bar declaration, the album's narrative comes full circle. "I don't know what lays in store / but I ain't afraid anymore," sings Jessi. Facing fear leads to empowerment.

The coming months will have Those Darlins back on the road, doing what they're known for: delivering some of the most dynamic and indelible live shows today. Come ready. As Jessi shouts on the anthem "Western Sky," "I don't wanna hear another civilized roar / Let's make our own noise."

Rocks to Riches: Practical Geoscience Literacy for Financial Professionals

Rocks to Riches:

Practical GeoscienceLiteracy for Investors & Finance Professionals

 Innovative Experiential Learning with Practical Outcomes

A New Educational Offering From Cambridge Home & Kingfisher Consortium / drkurtgrimm.com

 

Synopsis: You comprehend the value of learning more about Earth sciences and economic geology: effective communication, business success and enhanced recreational experiences with your family and friends. Why sit in the dark all day, listening to a monologue of technical slides, when you can learn more while enjoying yourself and meeting new colleagues via hands-on learning in small learning groups? Rocks to Riches links one-of-a-kind conceptual art with beautiful specimens and more, and will launch in Jan 2014 at the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference. Our one-day, hands-on short course will engage practical concerns and equip the learner for clearer communication, risk management, and business success, while providing an adaptable Earth literacy and enhanced recreational experiences.

 

Rationale      

1) A typical short course equals a day of lecture and perhaps some scribbles in the technical manual:  Ho hum. This conventional approach fills seats, but does not build highly effective, multidimensional learning that sticks.

2) A hands-on approach  is the ideal way to build a strong foundation or extend an existing one.

3)  Rocks to Riches is part of a larger set of one-of-a-kind learning tools, being developed and exercised by a prize-winning innovator in geoscience  and sustain-ability teaching & learning at the University of British Columbia.

4) Earth is Water’s Planet. Magmas are wet: when rocks and hot fluids interact, mineral deposits might form. When these deposits are properly characterized and effective communication occurs, successful projects yielding wealth, employment and sustain-able success can result. 

5) Risk management: The Bre-X debacle demonstrated the consequences of investors operating without a sound geoscience foundation.

6) In a volatile economy with elevated metal prices, now is a very good time for investors to expand geoscience competence.

 

Summary of Course: At the outset, Rocks to Riches is a one-day experience, where short survey speaks from recognized experts will alternate with hands-on laboratory-style sessions, using minerals, rocks, satellite imagery, maps and technical reports. Participants will be clustered in groups of eight and will move from station to station during three 90 learning-laboratory sessions.  Rocks to Riches will equip engaged geoscience novices with a clear and expandable foundation; more experienced professionals will learn even more, AND get many of their tough questions answered.

 

Unique-features: 1) Experiential Learning: Hands-on with rocks, maps and reports. 2) Picture-driven synthesis 3) Brief expert introduction to geosciences and mineral deposits geology using one-of-a-kind graphics 4) Course participants will be clustered into groups of eight and move between different learning stations. Three 1.5 hours work periods will occupy most of the active learning. 4) Engaged learners will also develop practical experience that will enrich their leisure and family time (“Hey dad, what’s this rock with the bubbles in it?”). 5) Furthermore hands-on learning will make future visits to investment properties more useful and meaningful, by advancing your professional competence and credibility. 6) Superb course materials, including a couple of small surprises, will far-exceed your typical “short-course manual”.

Instructional Team: The instructional team unites award-winning geoscience educators with experts in mineral deposits geology. The course developer and lead teacher is Dr. Kurt Andrew Grimm (drkurtgrimm.com), an associate professor in Earth, Ocean & Atmospheric Sciences at the University of British Columbia, where he was awarded received UBC’s highest honor for excellence in teaching and learning. His pioneering emphasis is on effective learning outcomes, using innovative approaches that have been well-tested in the field, laboratory, classroom and well-beyond. Kurt’s entreprenurial and consulting activities deliver expert knowledge and superb presentational and engagement skills to applied geoscience, and transformative sustain-ability learning.  /// Additional power include university power and recognized experts in business-based geosciences, and will be acquirable on the course website (see drkurtgrimm.com). The calibre of the learning materials is unprecedented.

Summary: We are NOT aiming to cram a lifetime of specific expert knowledge into a blizzard of powerpoint slides. Our teachers and the course materials are specifically prepared to equip non-scientist, finance professionals with a valuable and enjoyable day of experiential learning! Subsequent offerings to permit deeper learning, will be adapted to conference-based and field-based formats.

Logistics: Rocks to Riches will launch in January 2014, on days that immediately bracket the Vancouver Resource Investment Conference (January 19-20, 2014;  http://www.cambridgehouse.com ). Sharing a venue with VRIC (Vancouver Convention Centre West), will make your travel logistics simple. With offerings on Jan 18 and Jan 21, the course will run from 9AM to 5pm. Local participants know this beautiful venue in and spectacular coastline setting overlooking Burrard Inlet and the North Shore Mountains. Out-of-town participants can arrive a day primeval and/or stay an additional day, and have a life and career boosting experience.

Registration Information: Registration and course materials 5. (includes catered breaks and lunch). For enrollment visit the course website (under development; links to drkurtgrimm.com. Early bird registration, for participants in the World Resource Investment Conference (Vancouver, Might 2013) includes a 0. discount.

Additional expertise: Course registrants requiring detailed consultation with geoscience experts might be further assisted during their stay in Vancouver. Please describe your specific needs in your course registration, and our team will work to assist you.

Course Certificates: All participants who complete the course will be provided a certificate of course completion. For those participants requiring or desiring more, a written and practical examination might be provided at modest additional cost.

Additional Field Trip: If interest permit, we are planning a one day field trip on Jan 22, 2014, where course participants might exercise their work based learnings in spectacular settings near Vancouver. 5. includes transportation, food and a digital archive of our field based learnings for future presentations 

Future Courses: This course is foundational to a broader family of practical learning experiences, including field courses in other spectacular settings. Course website (under development) will link to drkurtgrimm.com.
