2018: September 20th

This song has seemed especially haunting to me lately. There's a cosmic reverie to the lead guitar that  reminds me of Zeppelin at their most mysterious, and also sounds - if you'll pardon the purple - like an impossible gaze into the abyss.

Issue #1 of Batman: Damned blew my expectations out of the water. The story at this point, which is teaming Batman up with John Constantine, begins perfunctory enough. What really seals this one is the art and the format - it's the over-sized magazine size Brubaker and Phillips use for the Criminal Specials, and Lee Bermejo's renditions of everything, especially the design for Batman's suit and his dark depiction of Gotham, are absolutely gorgeous.

Playlist from 9/19:

M83 - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming
Type O Negative - Dead Again
Jóhann Jóhannsson - Mandy OST
Earth - Primitive and Deadly
Angelo Badalamenti - Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me OST

Card of the day:

From the Grimoire: "Not knowing when to stop for the love of the "battle". Loud and clear.
