Hard to believe nothing I've read has had a page 55 since the end of last month, but, true, apparently. Lot of works in bigger volumes. Anyway,

But she wasn't really listening.

--Michael Moorcock, The Whispering Swarm


Underwater Moonlight bonus tracks:

Goodbye Maurice or Steve
Only the Stones Remain
There's Nobody Like You


I chose Moorcock. Cuz, who can ever get enough...

Anyway, autobiographical, growing up post-war, hanging out in Swinging London with Alexis Korner and Mervyn Peake, about to meet the White Friars.

Like it so far.


[Sobs]

Holmes and Moriarty just tumbled over the Reichenbach Falls.

Which leaves me, again, trying to decide between Aptheker and Moorcock...


Non-porn, The Thirty-Nine Steps was pretty fun, too, and if you like it, I highly recommend the Alfred Hitchcock adaptaion.

(Madeleine Carroll in handcuffs, mmmm, okay, maybe a little more porn.)

Although, IIRC, there isn't even a love interest in the book.


--Neuromancer is the shiznit.

--I remember that list.

--Three Men in a Boat was wicked funny.

--I haven't read those two, but I thought I heard they weren't set in the same world as all his previous books? Which has nothing to with whether they're any good, of course.

--I liked the sex scene in Before They Are Hanged, too, but, then again, I usually like sex scenes. I'm a bit of a pervert.


Monday Morning Jazz Brunch

McCoy Tyner--The Real McCoy


The Count of Monte Cristo is a no-brainer, I guess, but I was constantly reminded of the old Britflick Kind Hearts and Coronets.


I don't know who that is, but, yay!!!


For Stephen King/Kathy Bates fans


Ain't that the truth!

Roky Erickson - "Heroin"

Neat.


Must choose between two books that I recently received as gifts:

1) Herbert Aptheker's American Negro Slave Revolts (from Mr. Comrade)

2) Michael Moorcock's The Whispering Swarm (from The Black Goblin)

Didn't really expect to receive a gift from The Black Goblin. His birthday is next week, and I bought him Patrick Rothfuss's The Slow Regard of Silent Things.

The Soft Boys--Underwater Moonlight


I very much liked The Jewels of Aptor and Devil in a Blue Dress. That is all.


Nothing to say; just didn't like this thread falling off the main Messageboards page.

Like everyone, I'm guessing, who ever took an Afro-American Literature course, I ended up reading a lot of Zora Neale Hurston. Even wrote a paper on her literary tiff with Richard Wright in his communist phase. Sided with her, surprise, surprise.
She seems like an interesting figure, although this is the first book if hers I've read.

Yeah, she was apparently quite the bon vivant, studying with Franz Boas, writing and fighting with Langston Hughes, loving and leaving young black studs all over the place, etc., etc.

I swear I posted about further further readings I've done since then along this line. I remember composing such a post. But I can't find it. ??? Was it all a strange dream

Happens to me, too.

Doing one of those reading-three-books at the same time thingies again.

Daily reading schedule:

a) One speech by Malcolm X
b) A couple of Whitman poems
c) One story from The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
d) Commie propaganda


Clicking on The Buzzcocks link led to a promo I'd never seen:

What Do I Get?


Monday Morning Jazz Brunch

Charles Mingus--The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady


Yeah, The Maltese Falcon is the shiznit.

Finished The Interesting Narrative and moved on to Malcolm X Speaks.


More Daevid Allen (I think; or, so YouTube tells me)

EDIT: I don't think he's in here, actually.


Almost done with The Interesting Narrative, etc., read a commie theoretical journal with exciting articles about Clara Zetkin and the Greek Civil War, and swallowed a sizable chunk of Leaves of Grass.

Took the latter to the "Soup and Art Night" at the second Brooklyn Soup and Art night. If challenged on my lack of art, I was gonna declaim homoerotic verses about pressing my breast to the breasts of drovers and machinists. Fortunately, I wasn't challenged, but some other dude heard I had a copy in my pocket and asked to see it. "Yeah, I don't know, man. Strange dude I just met, wants to see my Whitman? Sounds a little intrusive, if you ask me..."


More Daevid Allen


Been a television gluttony binge for me lately, doing the whole first season and a few episodes of the second season for both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and 30 Rock. A lot of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, too. There was a funny joke about Adam Sandler and Leon Trotsky from one of the more recent episodes, I think.


I am there, I help, I came stretch'd atop of the load,
I felt its soft jolts, one leg reclined on the other,
I jump from the cross-beams and seize the clover and timothy,
And roll head over heels and tangle my hair full of wisps.

--Walt Whitman, "Song of Myself" in Leaves of Grass, "Death-Bed Edition"


More Gong!

The entire Radio Gnome Invisible Trilogy, even though I already linked two-thirds of it!

Flying Teapot
Angel's Egg
You


More Gong


Walt Whitman: Pathfinder Contributor


They cooked their provisions also in iron pots, and had European cutlasses and cross bows, which were unknown to us; and fought with their fists among themselves.

--The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano, or Gustavus Vassa, the African. Written by Himself


More Gong

Television - "Guiding Light"

Thing I'm finding the hardest to adjust to in NYC: Just because Marquee Moon is playing in a bar doesn't mean the bar is cool.

Anyway, more Gong.


Gong--You


Finished No Truce with Kings, flipped the Tor Double over and was gonna start Leaves of Grass, but got annoyed reading about all of the different editions that Whitman had put out, particularly the way it had gone from 90-something pages to 400+. Instead, read Black History and the Class Struggle: On the Civil Rights Movement and Black History and the Class Struggle: Massacre of Philly MOVE. Not sure what I'm gonna read next.


Gong--Magick Brother


The Gong retrospective begins...now!:

Radio Gnome Invisible Part II--Angels Egg


How to order KFC like a boss


Then when he knew that everyone was at dinner in the long dining-room at the back of the house, he just walked very quietly down the stairs, opened the side door and marched out, down the garden path and out at the tradesmen's gate.

--E. Nesbit, "Accidental Magic; or Don't Tell All You Know" in The Magic World


More death:

Apparently the bassist from Free and co-writer of the second best song ever recorded also died.

:(


Finished up "The Part Played by Labor in the Transition from Ape to Man," read a short Filmguide to The Battle of Algiers by one Joan Mellen, retrieved E. Nesbit's The Magic World from the Love Basement and had a jolly good time with it, less so Virginia Hamilton's In the Beginning: Creation Stories from Around the World and am looking forward to finishing No Truce With Kings on the next bus ride to Brooklyn.


Due to computer usage, I finally discovered, after all of these years, that the copy of At the "Golden Circle" Stockholm, Volume 2 by The Ornette Coleman Trio that I bought used is actually the cd for At the "Golden Circle" Stockholm, Volume 1 in the case for Volume 2.

I read on the internet, of course, that Vol. 2 is much better.

You be the judge:

Vol. 1
Vol. 2
