so i did this stupid thing on my alternate reality blog HOT DOG WATER BONDAGE where i talk about my favorite one-album-only bands. no reason.. just something i've always wanted to do.
MDF was fun. still plowing through all the shit i bought... haven't even scratched the surface of the vinyl. so far the ones i keep revisiting are DIAPSIQUIR and Herman Kopp's NEKRONOLOGY.
watched We Need to Talk About Kevin the other night. a pretty solid cliffnotes version of the novel. some really great imagery, Tilda Swinton nailed it, and the kids who played Kevin were all sufficiently assholish at a demonic level.
Prometheus was alright. i'm not as upset by it as some, but the gripes are warranted as the script is sort of a pile of shit. the performances and the visuals and the ideas try to will the writing out of sucking ass, but sort of lose that tug of war. still... it's light years ahead of Alien Resurrection and the sub-reprehensible Alien vs. Predator movies.
got a nice stack of used 70s/80s horror sleaze DVDs from FYE this weekend. some Jess Franco, some Jean Rollin, some Spanish fuckgore.
Bryan Lewis Saunders is my new hero. really makes me feel like the ineffectual chump that i am. i do what i can.
writing lyrics for the next TUNNEL NUN record. got about 7-8 written, aiming for 14. hoping for a late-summer recording. THE COMMUNION is reving up for summer shows/writing/recording. good to be busy.
