Sefven Days of Steve: Day 7

We bring Seven Days Celebrating Steve Albini's career with a track from what is, in my opinion, one of the greatest production statements in Independent Rock history. Really, The Jesus Lizard's Goat, Liar and Down are all neck and neck for that honor, all produced by Albini. 


Pretty robust week, considering how I've downsized. Here we go:

I could have sworn this book ended with issue five, but here we are at #6, and the end isn't for another month yet. 

Love this cover. Feels like this book was on a little hiatus, glad to have it back. 

This Untold Destiny of the Foot Clan book is proving to be considerably better than I originally anticipated. LOVING the art by Mateus Santolouco, so I'm here for that, at the very least. But I'm really interested in seeing where this Casey-Jones-with-the-bad-guys subplot goes, and overall, I dig seeing a continuation of The Foot's story without Shredder. 

I'll just eat my words and say this now: so far, I love this book. I'm still not hip to ANYTHING Marvel has done with Aliens in comic form, but this? This is a really cool "What If" continuation of Cameron's Aliens.

So checked out on these. Last issue of this series, which means it should just be two issues to go before I can get out of the X-books altogether. 


The first teaser trailer for Francis Ford Coppola's upcoming Megalopolis dropped earlier in the week. 

This is as far as I'll be going with trailers on this one. This film is slowly creeping into the role of one of my most anticipated films of the year. To read some of what FFC has said about this, I think this could be one of his greatest films (after Dracula and Apocalypse Now, of course).


Various - The Void OST
Graveyard - Lights Out
Yerusalem - The Sublime
Lustmord - Much Unseen Is Also Here
Ian Lynch - All You Need Is Death OST
Adam Egypt Mortimer - The Obelisk
Chelsea Wolfe - She Reaches Out to She Reaches Out to She
Amigo the Devil - Everything is Fine

• IV: The Emperor
• Knight of Pentacles
• Ace of Cups

Action; approach Earthly concerns with Intelligence, and an emotional breakthrough will follow. That's a bit fortune cookie vague for a reading, but I'm spent.
