Sods and Odds
A little while ago, I posted about the graphic novels I have been reading over the past while. I made one serious omission: Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips' Criminal Series. Brubaker's stories find their footing in the pulp and crime genres recalling Jim Thompson's work. (The Killer Inside Me, The Grifters, and The Getaway) Geo and J are not fans of the crime genre, but even they found themselves enjoying the collected Criminal stories. It is a grim world of losers and predators, aptly depicted by Sean Phillips moody artistic style. The duo are also working on a pulp superheros and supervillains series called Incognito. Compelling stuff, actually.
After a long time of searching, I have finally pucked up a copy of The Flaming Lips experimental album Zaireeka. Rather than re-explain it too you, just follow this link. I have hopes for throwing a Zaireeka party at some point.
