What to listen to on the trip? I'm opting for an mp3 collection featuring:
A selection of My Bloody Valentine eps
What Made Milwaukee Famous's Trying to Never Catch Up
Blue Note Plays Bacharach
David Axelrod's The Edge
And maybe some old Roxy Music
Speaking of MBV, I think I might put together a track-by-track mix of the original Loveless, combined with Japancakes' recent cover disc. (Isn't this fascinating?)
I'm just wrapping up Erik Larson's Thunderstruck, so I'll grab something new to read, too. Maybe The Golden Compass.
Much writing to do, though. Hard to read when you know you've got writing to do.
Suddenly a lot of plot directions are running through my head for HAWAIIAN DICK. Just finishing up a quiet little stand-alone story that introduces a new character I'd like to keep, and re-opens the door to Byrd's past. Also, Byrd has another brother we have yet to meet.
