Music Monday: The Man In Black


Dark and classic, today’s Music Monday features one of the best American singer-songwriters to ever live, Johnny Cash.

In college, I spent some time in the South United States and developed an overwhelming appreciation for Mr. Cash.  While touring Nashville, Tennessee I had the opportunity to visit the Country Music Hall of Fame and fully immerse myself in his historic musical career. And since then I’ve never stopped listening. In fact, I even had this bumper sticker on my car for a number of years:

According to my iTunes play counts, here are some of my all time favorites…

Johnny Cash – I’ve Been Everywhere

Johnny Cash – God’s Gonna Cut You Down

Johnny Cash – Country Boy

And, of course, the forever famous…

Johnny Cash – Ring of Fire

  1. The hop cells are one color with a different colored cuff. The millions and millions of riot gloves also share this scheme. If thats all you were implying, then you’re correct (and very astute). Thanks for the post, Tumbas.

  2. the cell ii’s are maybe like a thinner version of the riots……but not that much. I mean other than a flashy cuff and maybe some technical things, these gloves dont look that much a like…sorry 412 but i gotta go with gaclax on this one

  3. Tumbas, normally I agree with your judgement on gloves. 

    The only things that makes the gloves in this post similar is the glove being one color and the cuff (I guess you can call it the cuff) being another. That, and the fact they are a mid range glove at best. The cuts on the hand of the glove are completely different offering a different feel and protection. The knuckles/finger layout is different too. The actual “cuff” is also set up differently, yes it has the tri piece construction but what glove doesnt these days?

    If I am going to buy custom gloves I am willing to spend over $100 to get a better quality glove then either of these.
