Links for February 10, 2019: An Angry Gay’s Overdue Screed on Bohemian Rhapsody, Chivalry is not that, naked webcomics, Terry Pratchett’s Oblivion mod

Christine Kelley posted a belated, but powerful response to Bohemian Rhapsody, a Queen biopic I have personally refused to watch because shouting and throwing eggs at a movie screen is not my idea of a good time: An Angry Gay’s Overdue Screed on Bohemian Rhapsody. That’s Not What Chivalry Is by Dr Eleanor Janega is […]

Links for the day: Chronicles of the Witch Queen, Lynxlet, Sweet Potato Curry

A new Chronicles of the Witch Queen story, Castle of the Gods, started on Wednesday at the slightly more relaxed schedule of three per week. Read it, starting at this page: http://cotwq.thecomicseries.com/comics/314 I’m pretty much only the webmaster for this webcomic at this point, but I love it for how surreal it’s gotten. This one […]

Albums bought, July 1 – September 30, 2016

Yeah, I don’t really post here much anymore and I even let the deadline, if you can call it that, for these quarterly posts lapse. Collecting records is literally the least demanding hobby I’ve ever had, but I’m still not keeping up with it well. Not that I didn’t buy any records! I did, and […]

Albums bought April 2 – June 30, 2016

This quarter, Aggie and I finally completed the restoration work on our Thorens TD 165 MKII turntable, so I’ve been buying a lot of vinyl to play on it (as well as digging through both my old LPs and the ones I bought in the past few years but hadn’t got around to open yet). […]

Albums bought January 1 – April 1, 2016

A lot of West African music this first quarter of the year. More from non-physical sources as now that we’ve brought back a lot of our stuff from storage, all our rooms are getting a bit full, so I don’t want to add a lot of physical objects. Likely to skip out on Record Store […]

Albums bought September – December 2015

A slow trimester during which I mostly bought reissues and live albums. Only one of these would make my Top 5 for the year and I’m considering selling off some of the physical items already. Bert Jansch – Moonshine (Bandcamp) Deep Purple – …To The Rising Sun (Live in Tokyo 2014) (CD/DVD) Gentle Giant – […]
