All hail the Devil’s Chord!

Published by under Full of ideas,Subculture

The Church was nervous that it caused demonic ecstasies and banned it for a long time. Now it’s everywhere: Rush’s “YYZ,” Liszt’s “Dante Sonata,” […]

!Meet The Staff!

Published by under Subby Love

They’re going to hate this. I can’t remember our Flickr account password so until I get home and upload these pictures properly, I’m going to post them here. Oh, I HATE this camera.

Published by under Lou Life

John Perkins : Confessions of an Economic Hit Man Haruki Murakami : Kafka on the Shore Chuck Klosterman : Killing Yourself to Live […]

Storm of ‘Aught Six

Published by under Lou Life

Electricity is good. I don’t care what John Zerzan says. And, boy, do we have it here. The air conditioning is so cold, I have a sweater on. Somehow the Loop escaped Mother Nature’s wrath and we are living the high life. Feel free to join us. And don’t let the five thousand non-working traffic […]
