Some nice new selections announces in the 33 1/3 series: https://333sound.com/open-call-2018-res ... -3-series/
Man, I like Murder Ballads, but I'd have preferred a different Nick Cave one. And obviously they dropped the ball on Roxy Music.

The one I'm really looking forward to now is Japan's Tin Drum. I'm gonna go check on a release for that.

Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Heraclitus (EMI)
Developers (Developers Developers)

From Elvis In Memphis is as good an album as London Calling, can't wait for that.

Related to this Mark Fisher anthology, I learned that in the 90s he was part of an electronic group called D-Generation, who released one ep, Entropy in the UK. The only digitized copy I could locate is available as a melded YouTube upload:


All in all, pretty decent. The third track makes liberal use of Lydon's closing line at the Pistols' Winterland show.

I haven't read a book in quite some time, but I've fallen in love with this one. He basically re-writes the end of Bram Stoker's Dracula,so Dracula defeats Von Helsing instead of vice-versa, and now 3 years later vampires have taken over the world and Drac himself is fiancee to the widowed Queen Victoria! Dr. Seward from Stoker's book has become Jack the Ripper, slashing the "new-born" vampire prostitutes in Whitechappel! I'm about 200 pages in, Dracula hasn't even made an appearance yet, but everyone talks about him.

That's a wild concept. Looks like it's a series of books by the same author following Dracula in different time periods.

I'm very excited about it. It's also a very easy read, dozens of 5-8 page self contained chapters, so nothing drags.

I'm gonna finish this last hour of book one of the Fellowship of the Ring and then jump on to the driverless horse drawn carriage of the Newman audiobook. I was looking some fiction to break up the wanderings of the hobbits already.

I've never done an audio book, how long do they take? Obviously, it depends on the length of the book, but what, 4 hours? 8 hours?

The Anno Dracula one is just over 11 hours, which is about average. I tend to knock out around one every week and a half or so, on average. The beauties are you can listen while doing other shit (I listen while doing chores and walking to work) and you don't gotta pay if you don't wanna. It's very rare I don't just steal them.
