  • books: lady of avalon, marian zimmer bradley

    so i’ve been reading lady of avalon and i’m a little more than halfway done with it. it’s the first book in the avalon series beyond mists that i’ve read, and i’m a little disappointed. the writing is not as engaging, and it has a slow start, but that’s not the problem i’m having with…

  • new releases: thom yorke and cut chemist

    Thom YorkeThe EraserXL from allmusic.com:The Eraser, Thom Yorke’s first solo album, is a pleasant surprise, an intensely focused set of nine songs that are predominantly electronic.
