Some Spooky Dr. John for your October 8th

Chalk another awesome recommendation up to Mr. Brown. Of course, I've been aware of Dr. John's music for a pretty damn long time and never really dipped a toe in, but when Brown recommended this to me yesterday as a left-field pick for some Halloween music, I jumped right in and found myself fully submerged in Gris Gris, the Doctor's first Voodoo-infused take on his Night Tripper persona. Really good stuff, and you'll see a lot of where Tom Waits pulled from when he left the drunken piano-schtick behind.

No offense meant to Waits, he'll always be one of my favorites. But the influence is on his sleeve, for sure.

Card of the day:

I always kind of think of the Twos as the spicket through which the Cosmic Perfection of The Crown trickles into Reality. What that means for me today, I'm not sure, but I'm hoping it bodes well for my writing session scheduled for this evening.
