I liked the rastas in space.

I only got to watch the first half; pretty intense shiznit.

More Leiber, Melville and Doyle, but this time Professor Challenger instead of Sherlock Holmes.

Best part of the flick.


Big Black

Thelonius Monk


Well, I don't know how long "long" is, but Joe Abercrombie's got six books out (five of which I've read) which are pretty awesome:

The Blade Itself
Before They Are Hanged
The Last Argument of Kings
Best Served Cold
The Heroes
Red Country

I also like to recommend the Long Price Quartet by Daniel Abraham (which actually isn't that long).

School sucks.

No, Geraint. It's f#$*ing Babymetal!!!

(Btw, poking around on youtube, I have discovered that I was nowhere near being in on Babymetal from Day One.)

I came by to catch up on my Curtis but got distracted by hawt Swedish commie rapper chicks thanks to Comrade Lunzie.

And while I'm here:

More Vive le Galt! rap

More guillotines

Even more communism

And more Babymetal


I don't follow metal much, but I am happy to see that I, thanks to Rone Barton and Paizo.com, I was in on the Babymetal from Day One.


I'm actually spinning Big Star again (Radio City this time) but I just saw the headlines so I figured...

Thanks for the reminder that I need to read the rest of Joe Abercrombie's work Comrade Doodlebug! I've read the First Law trilogy, need to read the stand alone stuff now.

For the record, I bought a copy of Red Country, handed it off to one of my players and he, no gushing fanboy, said it was the best one yet.

I handed it off to another one of my players who had also read all the Abercrombie books, let's see what he has to say.

As for myself, I realized that it's going to be quite a while before I get to Red Country because I decided that I am going to re-read all the other books before I start it and I don't think I'm going to do that for quite a while.

So, really, I guess I don't mind if Rothfuss (and Martin, for that matter) take their time.


I am still anticipating/hoping for a last-minute Joe Abercrombie/Henry James-style big reveal that Kvothe is really a lying, self-serving asshat and all the accusations of Gary-Stu-ing will turn out, instead, to be unreliable-narrator-dom.

I mean, the guy's an English grad student, isn't he? If he's just a hopped-up fanfic writer, I'm gonna be a little disappointed.

So, when's the next Kvothe book supposed to come out? Sometime after the last volume of A Song of Fire and Ice?

In the meantime, I started The History of Mary Prince, A West Indian Slave because I like happy, light-hearted books.


Sonic Youth--Rather Ripped

Reena
Incinerate
Do You Believe in Rapture?

and Sleepin Around which, for some reason, somebody make a video for featuring their dog.


I've watched quite a few movies that I haven't posted about mostly because they were not very good blockbusters.

I did, however, also watch The Black Swan which, among other things, caused me much confusion about the proprieties of courtship on the Spanish Main and also reminded me a bit of my recent readings on bride kidnapping.

(Maureen O'Hara is hawt, btw.)

I was going to drive down to Boston today to catch a showing of Godard's Le mepris (Youtube says it's "Probably the greatest French movie trailer ever") but unless watching the trailer inspires me further, I think I'll just order it on Netflix.


"But the publication of the Melville family diaries and correspondences, with a connecting narrative, by Melville's oldest grandchild, Eleanor Melville Metcalf, Herman Melville, Cycle and Epicycle (Harvard University Press, 1953), is perhaps the most directly revealing introduction to the author as man."

--Harold Beaver, "Bibliography" in Billy Budd, Sailor and Other Stories by Herman Melville

So I feel like I've been reading almost exclusively fantasy lately. Does anyone have any recommendations for good hard science fiction (preferably recent)?

I think the only good, hard, somewhat recent science fiction I have read is Charles Stross's Accelerando. I liked it.

Finished The Swords of Lankhmar, read some more Sherlock Holmes and replaced my library copy of Melville's short fiction with a copy of Penguin's Billy Budd, Sailor and Other Stories, purchased at Goodwill for 99 cents.

Cock-a-doodle-doo!


:(


Spent a lot of time earlier this morning, late last night, listening to Brtisihiznoid modsters turned Sufis, psych-out cults, Wagnerian Krautrock and Bolivian heavy metal. Huzzah!

In between, I managed to also listen to:

Future Islands (for the video game players)

Live Husker Du (for the hardcore nostalgists)

and The Locust (for the bugmen)

Was listenin' to this while cleaning up from last night's game. 'S awesome.

The Black Goblin's all like "What's this?" so I click on some more links and find a trailer for a documentary.

Holy shiznit.


School sucks!


Made the comrades listen to Ya Ho Wa 13 last night. I think I may have shattered their minds. Huzzah!

I still see 3packs of cassettes in Dollar Stores from time to time. Im not sure who buys them...now I know! Its Doodlebugs.

We goblins, of course, love your pinkskin trash.


A whiles back, I discovered that the Boston Public Library had an awesome collection of cds and I began supplementing my record collection by taping a bunch of stuff I'd take out.

Years later, I no longer live in Boston and have a 20-year-old car with a cassette player. I begin taping my records to listen to on the way to work and back. After repeatedly using the same blank cassettes for five years, they start breaking. Blank cassettes aren't as easy to find as they used to be, so I start scavenging from the Boston Public Library tapes.

But now, of course, I have to go buy the albums that I am taping over. So I start looking for a copy of Dwight Yoakam's Dwight Sings Buck (linked over in the Good Covers thread). I go to the "alternative" store in Nashua and don't find it, but the clerk tells me they have a copy in their Manchester store. I do, however, find the 3 cd boxset for Hawkwind's Warriors on the Edge of Time. It's $35 bucks. I've never seen a copy, three-cd box set or otherwise, of this album, so I buy it. Huzzah!

A week later, I stop by the Manchester store, easily find Dwight and am strolling about when I see a used copy of Doremi Faso Latido, which, again, I don't think I've ever seen before. Huzzah!


The Swords of Lankhmar which, as far as naval voyages go, is much more entertaining than anything I've read thus far by Melville.

Also reminds me to look up that German-speaking dragon-riding zookeeper who makes a brief appearance early in the book...

I've been reading Louisa May Alcott's gripping sword-and-sorcery saga Little Women.

Just got to the part where the paladin (Beth) and the barbarian (Jo) have met up with Sir Laurence and they stormed the Moffat Castle to rescue Meg. When Beth rammed the candelabra through Ned Moffat's skull in revenge of his horrendous treatment of Hannah, the loyal family slave, I almost wept. Can't wait to see what they get up to in the Slough of Despond. I bet Mr. Brooke gets his.

[Rough sketch for a re-write of Little Women.]

I need to return to 'Moby Dick' and 'Heart of Darkness' though, because I'm finding what I read affects how I write. I'm sure Wayfinder doesn't need the story of a poor but virtuous and spirited half-orc girl's adventures with beaux and balls.

I don't recall exactly from Moby-Dick but in "Benito Cereno" you need at least four clauses marked off by commas per sentence.


Finished "Benito Cereno" and went on to "Bartleby" which I always thought would cut a little close to home ever since I saw that episode of "Head of the Class."

Feel Good Hit of the Summer.

I found a mix-tape I made around the time that song came out:

Broadcast
Deltron 30303

and, um, Madonna (although, a different re-mix than what I have on my tape which is less dance-y and more space-y)


G#@#%!n quacks.

Huzzah that you're okay!


"Proud Mary" was originally by CCR, who were the greatest rock'n'roll band that these United States of America ever produced.

The Minutemen do CCR

And then they do them again

And then they do them again

And then, for good measure, they do Van Halen

Piccio dal Pozzo. Kind of Canterbury Scene-y, which is not what I was expecting.

In addition to enjoying this, I also found Gal Beeri's comment from 11 months ago to be particularly insightful, beautiful and true.

Just one more post on page 129 and I'm gonna cheat. Instead of listening to it now, I am going to bump it and then skip directly to page 132 after I listen to I'm Gonna Take You Home again.

Less culty unhinged wigout, more psyche-y country rock, a la Workingmen's Dead/American Beauty era Grateful Dead or A Jug of Love by Mighty Baby which is also well worth a listen, if only because it's the only actual Islamic country and western (ish) album in existence, so far as I know.


I watched a bunch of movies over the past five days which were kind of a mini-vacation.

Guardians of the Galaxy, I enjoyed.

Ender's Game, I didn't. In fact, I fell asleep twice and then had to rewatch the last half hour the next day. Made me wanna go back into some of the locked Ender's Game threads and start a fistfight.

I also was subjected to the entirety of The Matrix Trilogy. [Yawns]

I saw it yesterday. I was pretty unfamiliar with the characters, plot, etc., etc., but still thought it was pretty entertaining. Also, is it just me or did Drax look like a bulked-up, blue Sexy Putin?

Went home afterwords and was subjected to the hetero life partner watching all three Matrix films. I much preferred GotG.
