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 »

This sat on my shelf for years, having scored it at a Half Price Books for $1 forever ago. A Mark Leyner introduction threw me off right away, as well as blurbs from Art Spiegelman and Daniel Clowes. Who the fuck is this dude?

I’ve had this series sitting on the shelf for about a decade after a friend gifted me an extra set he had. I finally cracked open the first trade and kind of wish I hadn’t lugged this stack of books around for the past ten years!

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..
