This is the last dam run of likker i'll ever make...

Postby Ratabilly » Sat Mar 05, 2011 8:50 am

If anyone is interested, here's the youtube link for "this is the last run of likker i'll ever make" from Popcorn Sutton... its basically "The Last One" but with a lot more footage...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXkoc5-9a-Y

I've seen "The last One" and from a distillers point of view, this extended version has a lot more information on what he's actually doing all the way through the run.

Enjoy.

Thanks for the link Ratabilly -- I'm a fan of yesteryear and enjoy documentary type works that reflect on the way things used to be. Reminds me of how folks used to get together and have a "killin", hog or calf, and lots of folks would turn out and lend a hand. There'd be music and laughter all the while the work was getting done. Had my first taste of moonshine at a hog-killin at an uncle's place. Folks lives aint lived like this no more. Everybody too busy and life's too quick. It's 0350 AM here right now and I'm so excited I can't sleep. In about 3 hours I'm taking my 10yo son and we're traveling back to my home town to celebrate an age-old tradition -- a country Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday). In the rural areas of South Louisiana folks would travel the countryside on horseback collecting chickens and fixins to take back and make a big gumbo. This was the last "shen-dig" before the lenten season which starts on Ash Wednesday. There'll be a parade through town this afternoon. My son and I are going to meet up with my brother and the three of us will go and join up with about 150 horseback riders that make the treck through the countryside. We stop at farm houses and the landowners will release chickens and the men (young men for the most part) will run down the chickens and put them in cages on the wagons. There will be one wagon with a 4 piece band playing traditional cajun music and there'll be a couple wagons with tubs of beer. We'll make our way back to town in the early afternoon and this mass of livestock and humanity will spearhead the parade as it makes it's way through town. Needless to say, my chicken chasing days are long past at this point but I do enjoy the horseback ride through the countryside and being able to visit with friends and relatives. This will be my sons first Mardi Gras "run".

Enjoyed that, thanks. My favourite part was the reasoning that it wasn't illegal because he'd paid tax on the copper :8)

Now that sounds like my kind of party! Hope your son loves it enough to teach his son :8)

after you install it when you go to you tube or any other flash player etc video site, works with redtube etc..

go to the video you want to DL, on you tube you can select select your resolution in the bottom right corner of the video

as soon as the video starts playing move your mouse over it and in the top right of the video a button appears giving you the option to DL the video.

it will save it in the original format its uploaded in you mydocumnets folder under realplayer downloads

No problemo, i've been watching this guy that uploaded half of it on his youtube channel about 8 months ago, and stopped at part 7. I'd check about once a month if he had uploaded the rest, and then last time i checked, somebody else had fully uploaded the documentary, and the video is better quality than the first one anyway.

I saved it with YouTube Downloader, It's about 1.2 gig, but im sure if you convert it to AVI or something you can compress it some more...

I just watched the lot. If you can ignore the parts which were obviously done for the camera, I mean, who builds a moonshiner shack in the middle of the woods and hangs out a shingle to say who owns it, drives all over the countryside in a Model A in the 21st century, thinking that no-one will notice him and towards the end, has a fiddle and banjo band playing while they are bottling the product?
There are some parts however which explain the procedures which we are using today and gives a bit of an insight into how the oldtimers possibly built there permanant stills. I don't think though that they would go to all that trouble just for one rum.
But then, that may just be me.


Cheers.

yup, you're right tracker. A lot of it was just a "show"...

But back home, they'll do all of what you've seen in that video for all kinds of events. (Maple Sugar season, moonshining, animal killings...) The bluegrass music, the old temporary shack (sometimes permanent), the old vehicles and everything else is part of the hillbilly lifestyle.

Now, if you knew Popcorn, knew he was the only one in town that owns a model A and seen it parked randomly somewhere in the bush on the side of the road, well you're right... it's a bit dumb.

But if most people (in a more remote town) ARE hillbillies, and most of them own old vehicles, and all look alike with their overalls and plaid shirts, well then its not that uncommon after all... :wink:

I gotta agree about the Model A though, it is kind of easy to spot... But everything else is still happening in some areas to this day, although you wont see it happen EVERY day... Welcome to rural Canada! :roflmao:

Edit: 'cause of stuff that didn't quite make sense, pardon my french.
