Every Loser


A few weeks back, I hadn't even realized Iggy Pop had a new record until Mr. Brown messaged me about Every Loser. After a couple listens, I'll say it's a pretty solid album. Then I heard it again this weekend and it really grabbed me.

I haven't been all that receptive to the stuff Mr. Pop has done in the last ten years or so. The album with QOTSA as his band was okay, and although I did dig 2013's Ready To Die and his work with Underworld, neither held my attention for very long. Probably not the music's fault. This record, however, has something different: Producer Andrew Watt, the man that made the two most recent Ozzy Osbourne records. As good as those are to Ozzy, this is to Iggy. 


NCBD picks! 

Yeah, I know I'm cutting back on what I buy, but I can't pass up a new Tynion book. Especially one titled Blue Book.

I skipped last week's Nightcrawlers, but the first Storm and the Brotherhood entry in Sins of Sinister was good, so I'm definitely picking up Immoral X-Men #1. 

Saga brings me great joy. 

Phantasmagoria has proven to be a sleeper hit for me, and I've next to no doubt that, once this issue is out and the series is tied up, it will end up on my 'Best Of' list for 2023.

Monetary conflicts that affect both K and myself at the moment. We're having issues getting our tax returns - which we did on the 8th - submitted due to some computer issues with the company we go to. I take this to mean hold steady and don't let it create conflict.
