Something Good to Read on a Sunday for August 5th
The summer is just zooming by. How is it August already? The 2019 calendars are in the stores. Next year’s IKEA catalog is in the mailbox. People are firming up Halloween plans. It’s a Sunday. Take a breather with some hot link blogging (see what I did there?).
There is to be a Blacksad Video Game next year. Yes, you read that right. Rock, Paper, Shotgun has more information than you could ever want on that news. Blacksad writer Juan Diaz-Canales has otherwise been busy with two additions to the travels of Corto Maltese; and, his horror story Fraternity will soon be brought to the states by Lion Forge as part of their excellent Magnetic Collection.
Mute Records has announced reissues of three long-out-of-print Throbbing Gristle recordings: Journey Through a Body, Mission of Dead Souls, and Heathen Earth.
Beware of Mister Baker. Seriously. This was a weird one and I’m not easily disturbed by musician excess. As of this writing Ginger Baker is, against all odds, still alive. You can also watch Beware of Mr. Baker on Netflix.
