Wait a minute, he died five years ago?!? Stupid Facebook.


"The mind is a gourmet; let us furnish it with savory and delicate dishes, suited to its taste; it will eat all the more for sensuality's having whetted the appetite."

--Hippolyte Taine, as quoted in Edmund Wilson's To the Finland Station: A Study in the Writing and Acting of History

He [Gilgamesh] returns empty-handed to Erech, and here the epic probably ended.

--S.H. Hooke, Middle Eastern Mythology


Apparently, the leather jacket belonged to the deceased drummer.

Speaking of deceased, I haven't done much internet this month, so I just saw, three days late, that Dave Brubeck died.

:(

Dave Brubeck, Whose Distinctive Sound Gave Jazz New Pop, Dies at 91

Take Five


Echo and the Bunnymen--Porcupine


Finished To the Finland Station, made some progress in both Hawthorne and Whitman, and got up to Hittites in Middle Eastern Mytholohy.

The Bill Evans Trio--Waltz for Debby


Was putzing around at ye olde usede booke store with Mr. Comrade and picked up an old Pelican volume called Middle Eastern Mythology by S.H. Hooke.

Thus far, Gilgamesh, Ishtar and Tammuz, and the Enuma Elish. Fun stuff.


Durand Jones and the Indications

Lindisfarne--Fog on the Tyne


Finished A Clash of Kings and was suitably impressed.

Halfway through To the Finland Station and also decided it's time to pick up where I left off in Leaves of Grass. Hopefully it will be easier to read poetry at work than long chapters about direwolves or dialectics.

VA--Africa Funk - The Original Sound of 70´s


The Grateful Dead--Aoxomoxoa


I started with Hawthorne, moved on to Poe and finished with Lovecraft. (Reminds me, I've got to go back and finish those Hawthorne and Poe volumes.)

Am happy to report that I was able to read three chapters of A Clash of Kings at Sugar Candy Mountain yesterday. Huzzah! Paid to read, I love it.

Last night/this morning, I read the first bunch of chapters about Jules Michelet in Edmund Wilson's To the Finland Station: A Study in the Writing and Acting of History and it kind of made me want to put down the latter and pick up the former's History of the French Revolution.

Finally, recent current events seem to have knocked our Capital reader's circle off course. Still stuck halfway through Chapter 15.

Monday Morning Jazz Brunch

Ornette Coleman--Change of the Century


Heaped debris made the entrance to the vast left-hand building doubly easy, yet for a moment we hesitated before taking advantage of the long-wished chance.

--H.P. Lovecraft, "At the Mountains of Madness," At the Mountains of Madness and Other Tales of Terror


Charles Mingus--Mingus Ah Um


Samara Lubelski--The Fleeting Skies


Monday Morning Jazz Brunch

The Cannonball Adderley Quintet--At the Lighthouse


Was talking to my ADHD-afflicted friend after work about the 2/3rds of "At the Mountains of Madness" and, while listening, he typed it into youtube and discovered this low-budget animation film that we watched (and now I'm not sure I want to finish the story):

At the Mountains of Madness - Short Animation Movie

Then we watched Rats in the Walls which wasn't included in the volume I am (was?) reading.

Earth--The Bees Made Honey In the Lion's Skull


Phil Chess, RIP


Ted 2 which I liked more than I thought I would, and I never even saw Ted 1.

Free State of Jones which was pretty badass and features the only cinematic scenes of Reconstruction ("Union League! Union League!"), minus Birth of a Nation of course.

District 9 which I had never seen before and liked quite a bit. Watched it along with some Vice News pieces on The Jungle in Calais, which was quite a mind blower.

And, this evening, went over a friend's and watched Crimson Peak which I had a hard time taking seriously because [bubble bubble bubble] but it was fun to call out other films it reminded me of--"Notorious!" "The Shining!" "Jane Eyre!"


Neil Young--Time Fades Away


Monday Morning Jazz Brunch

Hank Mobley--No Room For Squares

Noname--Telefone


Your Feet's Too Big


Got out of work early and headed over to the Intersectional Feminist Fondue at UMass Lowell and was three hours early. Finished reading Chapter 15 of Das Kapital for tomorrow's readers circle and then realized I didn't have any of the other books I was reading. Popped the trunk open (everybody has three boxes of books in their trunk, right?) and opted for a collection of H.P. Lovecraft stories, a Del Rey collection from the seventies called At the Mouth of Madness and Other Stories. Read the two shortest ones in the collection ("The Statement of Randolph Carter" and "The Shunned House." Liked 'em a lot.
