NO COAST

Picture Click that big picture and you'll go to the new album I have out! It's called NO COAST, and it was written and recorded in two short bursts: one in July of 2016 and one in June of 2017. It's the audio companion to my first chapbook, MURMURATION (2012, Passenger Side Books). 

The first three tracks are from that first session, where I could only record so loud in my apartment, which I only bring Read more of this blog post »

A cute story I probably would have liked more if I was reading it to a kid. Nice art and colors, but a curious layout: single panel per page surrounded by about an inch and a half of white space on all sides. There are a handful of pages taken up in ...more

Absurd, funny, and endearing. Gets a bit lost in itself sometimes, but the way it wonders about the failures of love clashing against technology is more (dis?)heartening than it comes off on the surface. Made for Love’s contemporary spin on the class ...more

566 Frames by Dennis Wojda
Rate this book

This disjointed, two-tone wonder tells the story of a family surviving strife through magic and vice versa. A bit of a hard-to-follow mess, but there’s a comforting sense it’s all by design, that Wojda intended time and space to be exactly what they ...more

Stitches by David Small

The art is masterful. Controlled wisps for line work and the overlapping splotches of black and white watercolor. A few of these panels in here, even as one as simple as the rain, really hit me.

The story is in the same vein as other popular coming-o

I haven't read alot of Murakami, but I highly recommend his early works, 'Wild Sheep Chase' and 'Dance, Dance, Dance' (the sequel). More recently, people say good things about 'The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle' which will be the next I read..

Japanese in translation my favorite is Junichiro Tanazaki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jun'...
One of my favorite authors of all time..
