An Initial List of Albums to Look Forward to in 2013

There will be more, and I’m sure I’m forgetting something so there’s sure to be an addendum article at some point, but I’ve been curating lead-off singles and cryptic messages (thank you QOTSA for making the almost mind-bending wait FUN w/ those) for a few weeks over here and I felt compelled to compile a list to help get others excited as well. I always hear how there’s no good music anymore. WRONG!!! Let me persuade you. Even if you’re unfamiliar with some of these artists give them a whirl, there’s something on this list for everyone.

Well, almost everyone…

Thee Comics Column #23 – Gary Spencer Millidge’s Strangehaven

I remember reading about Strangehaven back in the mid-nineties. Probably in Wrapped In Plastic magazine, as it very easily would have/will appeal to fans of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s landmark television series Twin Peaks. Somehow, despite my rabid Twin Peaks obsession I never managed to pick up even a single copy of Strangehaven. If I had – picked up even a single copy that is – I would  have read the series start to finish as I’m planning to do now after stumbling ass-backwards into a copy of the first trade, “Arcadia”.

Thee Comic Column #22: Karen Berger

I think it’s appropriate to dedicate an episode of TCC to Karen Berger, who until December 3rd of last year was the Executive Editor & Senior Vice President of DC Comic’s Vertigo imprint, when she announced she would be stepping down.

Cymatics and Bjork

If you look Cymatics up on the interwebs you will find the following definition: Cymatics (from Greek for “wave”) is the study of visible sound and vibration, a subset of modal phenomena where typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm, or membrane is vibrated, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste, or liquid. [1] Different patterns emerge in the excitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency. – wikipedia.
