I had not heard of the band Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs until Mr. Brown sent me something about their newest record Land of Sleeper, which dropped on Friday. I listened to this one on the way up to Indiana on Friday, and it's a fantastic Doom/Stoner Rock record. Favorite song so far? "The Weatherman." Really unique song that almost reminds me of a Robert Howard entry into the Cthulhu Mythos with its eerie chanting and whining guitar. Check it out, and the Seven Pigs Bandcamp is HERE.
I watched three movies yesterday. Here's the list in trailers:
Outstanding film! There are a few little acting hiccups with the kid leads, but not in any way that takes away from what's here. If you ever wanted to see what Reservation Dogs mashed up with The Thing would look like, find Slash/Back on Shudder and hit play.
I had not seen Red Dawn since it first hit VHS, so circa 84/85. This was homework for an upcoming episode of Elements of Horror, with the remake following tonight (remake I have never seen). I can't help wonder how much of the OG Red Dawn is propaganda, or if this was simply a case of, "Hey, these fears run rampant in our culture, let's play with what it would look like if it really happened."
The sad irony, of course, is that if you push this up to today and set it in Ukraine, well, it becomes a f*ckin' documentary.
This movie remains as wonderful and ridiculous as always. Hey Keith David - just put on the damn glasses already!

I keep seeing that Empress coupled with Aces, which makes me feel like I'm flirting with some kind of breakthrough. This time, instead of an emotional nod, we see Will, and adding to that the Five of Cups, which speaks of Emotional conflict, I'm left wondering what am I not seeing? This doesn't appear tied to my writing endeavors, and the last five days have been a bit of a vacation from that, so I'm not sure how to interpret this. In cases like this, I've begun leaving the three-card Pull on my desk all day as I work, so the cards are always right in front of me.
