Jolene Sugarbaker, the Trailer Park Queen

I ran across Jolene's videos on YouTube.

While cooking is her usual subject (& kinda not my thing), she did a few interviews with artists showing at an Artomatic 2007 event in Northern Virginia:

Michael Torra

Stephanie T. Booth

But my favorite Jolene may be her serenely caffeinated performance on an Omnichord (an electronic simulacrum of an autoharp). Kinda Dolly Parton does Mother Maybelle doing Kraftwerk.

Entering the 21st century by slow degrees, I'll go so far as embed the Jolene on Omnichord video below. Dig out, Miz J!

I'm so glad Les Paul invented the Internet.
