first_imgIn their new video for the song “Fever Dreams”, Tom Hamilton’s American Babies got trippy, psychedelic and extremely animated. The track, off the band’s recent release, An Epic Battle Between Light and Dark, delivers imagery very much in the same vein as both the album and song titles. The video, directed by Tea Leaf Green guitarist Josh Clark, opens with Hamilton falling into a nightmare of straight disassociation from reality, a literal fever dream. As he slips further into this altered state, we see the Babies front man contend with the likes of ice cubes from his whiskey glass turning into a rattlesnake, running from bipedal fish, and taking a dive off a serious cliff into a never-ending pit.Tom Hamilton Announces Dead After Party With Marco Benevento, Oteil Burbridge & MoreHamilton told Philadelphia’s The Key: “The overall vibe for this record is to dig into those dark places that we don’t like to acknowledge, and I wanted his creative process to have mirrored mine.” He went on to say, “The moment when your inner filter starts to twitch a bit, that’s when you know you’re on to something. I found the video to be weird, at times scary, and even profound.” Check out “Fever Dreams”:Tom Hamilton’s American Babies have a busy schedule over the next couple of months with shows at Philly’s Live From The Lot, Brooklyn Bowl with Jackie Greene, Disc Jam Music Festival, and Beanstalk Music & Arts Festival. Hamilton also recently announced a special late-night show at The Fox Theatre in Boulder after Dead & Co. on Sunday, July 3rd with American Babies and special guests Marco Benevento, Oteil Burbridge, and Grahame Lesh’s Midnight North (get tix here).[via The Key]last_img read more

first_imgRecreational DemandGeorgia hunting preserves buy about 5 million quail annually, Dozier said. There is also a market for quail in Alabama and South Carolina.”In the past several years, it seems like our hunting and recreation demand keeps increasing,” he said. “There could be increased demand in the future.”Quail BusinessTucker’s quail operation would be considered large, Dozier said.”For someone just starting in the business, I’d recommend buying about 5,000 quail — no more than 10,000 — to really learn the business,” he said. “Learn how to grow quail before you really increase your production up to, say, 40,000 or 50,000.”Tucker said he respects quail and is thankful to make a career out of growing them. But he doesn’t get attached to them. He knows what awaits some of the birds. Some will fall to hunters. Some will fall to natural predators, like house cats, he said.”Cats are very skillful night hunters, and a quail doesn’t have a very good chance at night against them,” he said. “Anyone that has a quail operation can tell you how elusive they can be.”But some of the quail will survive and multiply.”Those birds will turn wild, hatch new babies and continue to grow,” he said.Quail-hunting season begins Oct. 1 and runs through March 31 on Georgia hunting preserves. A decline in certain natural habitats has severely decreased the wild population of one of Georgia’s primary game birds: the bobwhite quail.Though a state initiative has been funded to save and restore quail habitats, there is still a need to meet the demand for hunting. That’s where someone like J. Todd Tucker steps in.Tucker owns and operates Southern Star Quail Farm in Moultrie, Ga. The quail he raises and sells will be used on the estimated 175 quail hunting preserves in Georgia.”I’ve been in livestock all my life. I started raising cattle with my family,” said 29-year-old Tucker. “But we didn’t have enough land to do it with cattle.”So Tucker downsized, so to speak. With six acres of land, Tucker takes care of about 10,000 laying hens and sells about 750,000 day-old chicks annually.”I stayed with it and made a living,” he said. “It just so happens I’m doing it raising quail.” The decline has been blamed, in part, on changes in the way farm land is managed in Georgia. Many farmers are working larger fields. To get those larger fields, farmers often clear out the brush, weeds and trees between small fields.But quail need insects and heavy brush like the area between fields, Dozier said, to nest and thrive. With four consecutive years of drought and unstable prices, quail production could be an excellent alternative enterprise for Georgia farmers, said Bill Dozier, an Extension Service poultry scientist with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.On the DeclineSince the early 1960s, the wild quail population has fallen 70 percent in Georgia, Dozier said. In 1960, 4 million wild quail were harvested. That figure dropped by 1996 to only 630,000.last_img read more

Former Atletico Madrid and Spain striker Fernando Torres has announced that he is retiring after 18 years in professional soccer.Torres, 35, has been playing in Japan’s J.League with Sagan Tosu but mostly will be remembered for his stints with Atletico and Liverpool, plus a hugely successful international career with Spain.last_img read more
