“Emily’s Illness”, a forgotten 45 from late 1967 recorded by a 17-year-old non-singer named Nora Guthrie, is an overpowering musical force. In the three-minute span from its opening harpsichord down-note to its double-reverse coda, “Emily’s Illness” expands to occupy all attention, saturating its environment to the extent that music and listener are ineluctably fused into one unit.
Now for something completely different: all the scripts for 2019 miniseries Chernobyl free to download. Still the best TV adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft I’ve seen.
Speaking of: Here’s a 1975 pastiche/parody of HPL by Jorge Borges. Apparently Borges thought Lovecraft was a second-rate imitator of Edgar Allen Poe.
If I were to say what I think “Catholicism” represents, trend-wise, it would be something like this: the desire to see something ascendent that is aesthetically lush, intellectually rigorous, ambiguously reactionary, and which, above all, people can’t get mad at you for.
Perfect Alignment by Dave Coggins over at The Contender. If you know me, you know this is exactly the kind of thing I’m always talking about: owning fewer clothes which last longer and you love more.
