howdy banjists!

Thursday, May 17, 2007


My name is tim and I have been playing the banjo for around 5 months, so i'm not to killer just yet. I have been playing guitar for about 2 years, piano for 1, and harmonica for one. I can also do stuff on the pipe organ, but not in public! I live in annville, pa, and I only know one other person who plays banjo and digs folk music, sir zach of mink. I call him that because other than the banjo he likes to slay dragons and be chivalrous. He should be somewhere in my friends.

One day a married couple named Gary and Bridget found a big shoebox on their doorstep. They looked inside, and were shocked to find a red haired baby. They chose to raise the baby on their own and named him Timothy, after Timothy Treadwell, also known as “Grizzly Adams” for his fondness of bears. However, this Timothy was growing up fast. He was a plump baby, and while other methods of baby transportation eluded him (he was too big to crawl) he eventually mastered the “Baby Roll” (as Gary called it) where he would get around by rolling on his side, like Gandhi. Tim learned eventually learned to walk and then talk. Tim then became enthused with animals, much like his namesake. Tim had chicken pox on his first week of kindergarten, and that made him sad. But a week later, Tim was up and at’em and was tackling grade school like the proverbial grizzly bear. He would have made Grizzly Adams proud. Tim had to go to New Zealand in fourth grade, he didn’t want to, but he loved it and made a lot of friends, all of whom he has lost contact with. Timothy decided he better join a “clique” around eighth grade, and decided to buy a guitar and grow out his hair and try to be angsty. Truth be told, Tim didn’t have a lot to be angsty about, so that didn’t last. Around ninth grade, Tim got pretty literary and started memorizing the unfashionable poems of Allen Ginsberg, Eddy Poe, and Gary Snyder. Tim started listening to more folky music around this time, too. Dylan eventually led him to Guthrie who led him to Seeger who led Tim everywhere. Around tenth grade, Tim abandoned the angsty agnosticism that never satisfied him and never really satisfied anybody. Tim started a big ambitious spiritual quest that continues to this day. He read big chunks of the Bhagavad Gita and memorized the Four Noble Truths and Eightfold Path. He started reading Nietzsche and working out but that didn’t work out.
