Living Nudes - My World Exploded

Tommy from Heaven is an Incubator recorded and released an album recently! It's awesome and I suggest you head over to the band camp site HERE and buy it!

Cooper Light Socket/Ruby at the Roadhouse side x side

There's definitely something here. Unbelievable work by youtube Beyond Reason who also did the Sam and Tracy/Naido Cooper side x side from earlier in the season:

The idea of Lynch directing one scene while watching another to pace it is marvelous! The detail in this season is beyond anything he's done before, simply because he's had 18 hours to work with and what amounted to more time to shoot it than a standard film shoot.

2 weeks and 3 episodes left I want the climax but am afraid to get to it.

See you in the trees...

New From The Bronx Coming September 22nd!

Bronx I, II and IV are still among my favorite records from this century. If this first 'single' is any indication, V will join them up there.

Pre-order the album HERE.

Dead Cross - Live in Santa Ana

Monday was Dead Cross at the El Rey in Hollywood. My friend Keller and I hit it the early and caught Secret Chiefs 3 play a killer set; a great surprise as I didn't even realize they were playing. Spruance and Patton in the same building? FNM reunited, might Bungle one day?

I digress.

After more than a 45 minute wait between bands we became concerned. Our concern was justified when Dave Lombardo and Michael Crain ducked out from behind the curtain and told the crowd that Patton had been injured in a car accident and the show would have to be re-scheduled.


Keller and I hit another bar, or rather a Mexican Cantina that appeared out of thin air after we found a strange green ring behind a beat-up old RV covered heavily with surveillance. The rest of that experience is foggy to say the least, but I think I ate a Negro Modelo and drank a chicken fajita.

Fast forward to Tuesday and the rescheduled show was announced for... that very night. Bummer, because there was no way I could make it to Hollywood. I had to miss the show.

Very glad Patton is okay and I hope Dead Cross come back to play LA again VERY soon. The album, which came out on Patton's Ipecac label is among my favorite things he's done in years.

Evolution of the Arm: A Twin Peaks Discussion (Ep. 15 'There's Some Fear in Letting Go')

Fifteen tops fourteen as my favorite of the new Season thus far (if you remove 8 from the equation). I think that weekly one-upping will continue unabated until the end.

The Genesis of Preacher (Season 2 Ep. 9)

Forgot to post this last week. First episode this season I had some problems with. Harry Connick, Jr.? Really?

Evolution of the Arm: A Twin Peaks Discussion (Ep. 14 "We Are Like the Dreamer")

My favorite episode of The Return thus far. Well, my favorite if you just remove 8 from the equation.

The new Brand New Album is on Youtube

Pre-order the vinyl, CD or digital here. Been waiting 8 fucking years for this - one listen in and it's not what I would have expected but it's good enough to buy and analyze for months on end. So yeah, I'm happy.

The Genesis of Preacher - A Preacher Discussion (Season 2, Ep. 8)

This episode more than any other so far has made us very interested in how Cassidy's origin and evolution is going to play out in this adaptation.

Evolution of the Arm: A Twin Peaks Discussion (Ep. 13 "What Story is that, Charlie?")

Hands down the most frustrating episode of the series to date. Better upon second viewing but then again I don't pretend to expect David Lynch or Mark Frost to do anything other than what they want. I'll still be here cheering it on. Even if it frustrates me so this close to the end.

Evolution of the Arm: A Twin Peaks Discussion (Ep. 12 "Let's Rock")

Watched this in the Seatac airport on my way back from Twin Peaks Fest 2017. First time through was super-charged up front and disappointing on the back end. Second time through I really dug.
