Dead Love: Dead and Lovely, Tom Waits

Dead Love: Dead and Lov...

God, I love Tom Waits. That’s why I’m treating you to one of my favorite Waits compositions this Sunday morning. Dead and Lovely—he could be singing about me! I will hum this tune all morning. It’s particularly alluring when matched with nostalgic images of Cuba...

14. Three-days-dead (3)...

“Oh,” stammered my lame-brained escort, “Someone broken in,” stating what he thought was the obvious. If he’d been more observant, he’d have noticed that though the place had been ransacked, there were no signs of forced entry. The vandals, whoever they were, had let themselves...

Dead Love: A Little Gloomy Today

Dead Love: A Little Glo...

Feeling a little gloomy? I am. Really gloomy actually. And when I feel that way, I dive into a comic book. This time it’s Little Gloomy, a supposedly goth-related comic created by Landry Walker and Eric Jones and published by Slave Labor Graphics. Little Gloomy lives in Frightsylvania...
Dead Love: Obon, When the Dead Rise

Dead Love: Obon, When t...

I love Obon, Japan’s festival of the dead. It’s happening this year mid-August, though there’s always a question about the date, since it is supposed to take place in the 7th month of the year by the lunar calendar and we use a solar calendar. So some celebrate it...
Dead Love: Amy Winehouse, Back to Black

Dead Love: Amy Winehous...

Mourning Amy this morning, the sorrowful phrasing of this signature song, playing over and over in my head. Back to Black, Amy. I feel you, even now. … You went back to what you knew So far removed from all that we went through And I tread a troubled track My odds are stacked I’ll...
Dead Love: Bozeman Zombie Walk Postmortem

14. Three-days-dead (2)...

“Oh my, what has happened here?” gasped my companion. He made his way through the apartment, drawn, no doubt, by a fascination with despoiled opulence. The hall, which stretched from the left side of the entrance toward a distant back wall, was flanked by a series of doors that...
Dead Love: Zombies Walk in Bozeman, Montana

Dead Love: Zombies Walk...

Bozeman Zombie Walk tomorrow. Oh, oh, oooooohhhhh, I so wanted to go with my own zombie cowboy, but it was not to be. Moment of utter dejection. The shuffle though town begins at 8:30pm on Saturday (tomorrow) night at the Zebra where the undead congregate, rub shoulders and other...
Dead Love: Voodoo Child

Dead Love: Voodoo Child...

Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Child on Sunday morning. That’s really all that needs to be said. … Hahaha I said I didn’t mean to take up all your sweet time I’ll give it right back one of these days Oh yeah If I don’t meet you no more in this world then uh I’ll...
