2018: October 24th

I fell pretty hard into this Minsk record last night. Several of the guys in the band were in the Chris Connelly-fronted The High Confessions back in 2012, and I'd been meaning to check them out ever since.

31 Days of Horror continued last night with Jacob's Ladder. Such an underrated film. So damn creepy, and especially interesting when looked at as an extrapolation of the old, "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge."

Card of the day:

The ups and downs of life, fate, whatever you want to call it. Definitely feeling that right now. Relationships strain, others wane, others reform. I try to keep an even keel, regardless. If I know you and I speak to you in any form outside of my work life, I probably love you.
