So this is album 40

I've made it to 40 albums and I feel like the music's slowly getting better.
For this song I was inspired by the idea (brought up to me by e. rega) of using bad materials to make something beautiful. This was made with a dollar store recorder and I couldn't be happier with it.

Oh and, Considering that School is starting up again

and I'm not sure how often I'll be able to post, I'll throw in another song while my workload is light. Here is the second song from album 38, also featuring Cellist Diana Palermo entitled Widow's Walk Movement 3 (Swelling Waves).

This is the album art for Days Run Away XXXVIII: Widow's Walk


Album 38 has changed now to Widow's Walk, and features tracks performed by my friend, fellow artist and Celloist Diana Palermo (Who's works in Printmaking and Fiber art can be found at

I'm extremely happy with the pieces done so far and I look forward to collaborations in the future.

Where I am

Rarely will I make these entries in anyway personal, However, I figured I might as well rattle off my most recent influences beyond sports.

Before that, here's the new song: D.R.A. III: Reflections Of The Water In The House Moved Before Us

As one may have already figured out, I'm a huge fan of Charles Bukowski. Having read even more of his work I can confidently recommend just about any of his publications to those who are not yet familiar.

Books that I'm reading now or have read in the past month or two:

The Qur'an:
A truly beautiful work. Truth be told, and I hardly make reference to this, I am a Christian. However, I do find it extremely important to read and better understand this work/faith as a whole.
For anyone who would rather not pay:

The Book of Enoch
A brilliant, pre-christian, prophetical (and eventually gnostic) text covering a great deal of fallen angles and various other judeo-christian myths.

Mockingbird Wish Me Luck by Charles Bukowski:
A brilliant collection of early poetry.

…………and I'm now reading………

Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon

North by Louis-Ferdinand Céline

…and now, the music…

To make it known, I'm not going to go too heavily into why these albums are great (or if they're not great, why I Just like them). These are just the records that have been played more often in the past few months than any other.

Fleetwood Mac: Tusk

Lindsey Buckingham: Law & Order

Francoise Hardy: If You Listen

Cocteau Twins: Blue Bell Knoll

The Curtain Hits The Cast by Low

Midlake: Trials Of Van Occupanther
(Let it be known that this album has not one weak song. I never thought I'd fall in love with it the way that I have)

Ornette Coleman: Skies Of America

…and the comics that I'm reading (both graphic novels and series that are out now)…

Booster Gold (The Current Run)

Berlin: City Of Stones by Jason Lutes

Doom Patrol: The Grant Morrison/Richard Case run

I'll probably end up touching upon the plethora of other comics and albums that I'm listening to in future posts. Until then, I hope all of you are still enjoying the music!

Go Birds

Well played Eagles, Well Played. I may not be the first to admit this, but I didn't see you guys getting this far. Equally promising is the Sixers in their last win, and the Flyers, who won their last game and hold third place in their division.

All around good job guys.

First song from album 38, my shortest in a very long time.
D.R.A. I: Í

As proof that we don't always suck

The sixers had a great game last night, beating Houston 104-96 (The rockets, mind you, are quite a good team). Between this, and the Eagles, I'm feeling pretty happy about Philadelphia sports.

Here's a song from the album 36:
D.R.A. III: T.F.T.W.C.G.

Chad, Chad, Chad…what a good run we had.

With respect to the comeback this season, I suppose I shouldn't be too disappointed with the Fin's loss yesterday.
They made it farther than anyone would've expected, leaving behind two other, sober, but probably equally disappointed teams in their path (Bret Farve Jets, and the Patriots).

Ultimately, they got destroyed by the Ravens. The Ravens are a tough team, and it was certainly a tough season.
Here's to you Chad, and the comeback team of the year.

In other news, lets go eagles!

Oh and, you go Eno, a man after my own heart:
