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:
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.

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!
