New Music –
|Coil – Horse Rotorvator – Way back in December, when I started this 80’s kick I’ve been on recently, I asked for suggestions from the fine fellows of SBG Nation. AMR suggested I give Coil a listen, that it was kind of a precursor of Nine Inch Nails. Well, I don’t know if you know this about me, but I have been known to listen to some NIN now and again, so I vowed to give it a shot. To make a long story short(er), this album was tough to find, but now I’ve got it and I like some of the songs quite a bit. Favorites are currently ‘Slur’, ‘Ostia (Death of Pasolini)’, and ‘Blood From the Air’.|

Random 10 Short Story – making its triumphant return.
My plans to hop a boat and sail away from this disaster vanished as soon as Nameless Evil Henchman #4 came through the door. He looked terribly out of place in his tailored suit amidst the freak scene that was the 42nd annual tri-state rooster showdown. He spotted me right away (as if he didn’t know I was there before ever venturing in here). Once he was face to face with me, he told me the patient man I had grown accustomed to had gone away. I asked him if the old man was ever going to get tired of following me and just forget my debt. Apparently not, I was treated to a rant about how this Nameless Evil Henchman was different from the previous dudes I had dealt with. He was here to instill a new world order for me, and if I had any thoughts about how we’re going to be friends he was going to disabuse me of that notion. I told him he had anger issues, and if he wanted to get to the bottom of them, I knew a great therapist. He turned purple. He said, once he was through with me, he was going to hang one of my fingers on his trophy wall right next to Bab’s uvula. Who? I asked. Never mind, he snarled, you’ve got more important things to worry about. You’re telling me, I agreed, I lost all my money at the cock fights, can you spare me some cash? He told me I was hilarious and walked away.
You don’t know the half of it I thought as I rifled through his newly pilfered wallet.
