I’ve always been lukewarm on QOTSA. They had a few good songs, but seemed a bit generic. Nothing really sold me on them, but god damn, their latest album really gelled together. I haven’t specified one song because, as you can see by that awesome video, huge chunks of it work together thematically, enabling them to do this half hour long graphic novel rock opera thing.
My reading list for the week (okay, let’s be real, probably two). Crappy vehicle Voltron for scale – Optimus is on break.
Learned a harsh lesson from my optimistic list last month. I just cannot read like I used to – largely because I have jobs and write books now. When I was barely employed and broke, I’d go to the library every week and grab a dozen books. I’d be back a week or so later for a new stack. In a way, I miss it, but I guess the trade-off is that I’m not getting rickets from malnutrition brought on by a diet of half-cooked instant Ramen, Taco Bell and angst.
