Each is a collector’s item in its own way—not because of any special artistic quality, but because each captures on a canvas, suspended in time and space, a frozen moment of a nightmare


In my personal universe, the observed Hallowe'en season traditionally begins on 9/22 (the day after my birthday) and extends through All Souls Day (11/2.) That's just the way we do it around here. This year's project is to watch Night Gallery in entirety. Starting now, this means we have to watch 98 episodes in 42 days, 2 1/3 per day. I think we can do it.

Guitar on Parade


I'm currently kind of "curating" this old Martin ('49 O-15 if I'm reading the serial number etc. right). Needs a bit of maintenance and set-up but it's really satisfying to play even as is. I've been playing it non stop and it has already "sparked" a couple of new songs, so, guitar success.

Shilling is My Business


"Shipped in an unbelievably cool custom shipping box for this release based on the original King Dork Approximately design created by legendary graphic designer, Frank Kozik."

The album is on discogs, which somehow makes it seem more real. (Matrix # is wrong though: it's RAD-002-1; *-2 is the CD.)

Anyhow, even if you missed out on the initial limited gold pressing, you can still get the "vanilla" black vinyl version, or the CD, or the "balbum" (download with book.) It's work mail ordering it from Sounds Radical for the box alone, as well as for the combo packages and other stuff. I think of the box as an important part of the release in fact, but there will no doubt come a time when they are no longer available, so act now.

Go here for KDATA;

and here for other stuff.

Okay, that's about enough shilling for now, though I'm sure I will shill again. Shilling is my business, and shilling is, well just, you know, okay.
