Another Gamble review

The cool-headed and sensible Trace over at Croft Fantasy Book Reviews has decided she too is a fan of The Gamble of the Godless, citing its "good strong characters" and declaring that she was "fascinted by the various animal communities." There's a bit more, so feel free to go over and take a gander.

BTW, the Croft web site is an interesting place, filled as it is with reviews of fantasy and dark fantasy books, not to mention a wide variety of odds and ends (Season Two trailers for The Walking Dead, anybody?). So feel free to leave a comment, as I'm sure your interest is much appreciated...

And hey! We won't tell her she got the name of the book wrong, okay?

My new, new favorite band

Okay you know the drill by now: These guys ROCK.

Wooden Shjips (yeah, I don't understand either) playing  "Home." Check out the tricky Neil Young "Hey Mey My My" riff at the very beginning, before it deconstructs into 5:45 of droney, fuzzed out goodness...

Dumb video. Amazing song.

Remember hard rock? Ahh, those were the days. Here's a terrific song by a band called The Nevers, whose album Saint Bernadette was released recently and which I'll be reviewing on PopMatters. The video is dumber than a stick, so I recommend closing your eyes and enjoying the blissful rocking-out experience. It's almost like 1978 again...
