Heavy Metal Hitting Machine

Howdy there, dear readers. Just a quick clip roundup to break the silence:

OSI: Fascinating.
Wolves in the Throne Room: Not bad, I guess.
White Sox: Yikes.
Pegboy: Timeless.
The Bird and the Bee: Okay.
BPA: Surprisingly awesome.

In other news, a pair of fundamentally different yet ultimately excellent sites have brought me aboard, and for similar purposes. Look for me Monday mornings at The Beachwood Reporter with the weekly White Sox Report, and again a few times a week at upstart Mouthpiece Sports talking (you guessed it) White Sox baseball. That’s a lot of baseball, isn’t it? I need to get better about these updates, I suppose. Or just write about more prog-metal and folky songstresses.

Also as promised, issue three of Normal Words is finished and available for your viewing.

On a side note, I’d like to thank everyone who made it out to the 2nd Story Festival on the 7th. I killed my voice doing it, but the chance to tell you all my grizzled cubicle stories was easily worth whatever ailment came my way. I will keep you posted on when the next reading happens; probably not until sometime this fall. You will know as soon as I do.

Alright, that’s enough for now. Thank you as always for reading.
