Reading: "Full Dark, No Stars" by Stephen King

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

Mark, glad you got those Twisted reissues. I really loved the four extra tracks on Suckers and wish they would've replaced much of the second half that was released.

Chuck, thanks, man. I will always be fascinated by Roots since it is one of the first culturally artistic metal albums put down. What they accomplished may not be on the same speed as their most well-known work, but it's definitely a highwater mark creatively-speaking. And yeah, that is an all over the place week, bro. I'm doing likewise as I job hunt every day. Good to keep the mixes up.

cjk, great list, are you digging the new Earth? I finished that King book a short bit ago. Recommended as I usually feel about the majority of his books.

Ray, i enjoyed "Full Dark, No Stars" - it's easy to love his short stories and novellas. I am a huge fan of King's work, but must admit I haven't read much King over the last 15 years or so except "Cell."

i am digging the new Earth - however, i don't think i have had the time to properly digest it in a dedicated environment so i'll reserve final judgment until later on.

i agree with chuck, "Roots" is a nice pull. i will have to listen to that this week, too.

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

cjk, I have a friend who has given me every King book for Christmas since Pet Semetary and I had all the rest prior to. King is absolutely my writing idol and he inspired me to pick up the pen at age 14. I started reading him at 12 and I was hooked forever.

I also needed to get some isolation for the new Earth album. It's not something you want to listen to if you're preoccupied or have others around you. That album must be digested in a private sanctum.

Gregg Allman - Low Country Blues
Amon Amarth - Surtur Rising
DevilDriver - Beast
Sister Hazel - Heartland Highway
Still can't shake anything DORO!!
