With each succeeding year I come closer to Jainism. But I realize that there is always some killin' you gotta do to stick around. How is that for a benevolent creation? Even the heaven of farming sounds like hell.

Re: What book are you most looking forward to?

Apropos of nothing but the Waits "Murder in the Red Barn": Many farmers with red barns used to mix cow blood with their red paint. No, not a Satanic ritual for better crops, they simply believed it helped preserve the paint against a harsh climate. Who knows if it did.
Now get this thread back on the rails.

Re: What book are you most looking forward to?

"Now get this thread back on the rails."

How about this one?

"Sounds and Infinity: Appertaining Witchcraft and the Faerie Faith," by Lee Morgan.

Traditionally speaking, even more perilous than having faerie encounters is speaking about them afterwards. The results could range from death, blindness in the eye with which you perceived the Good Neighbours through to losing the boons previously granted. I am not alone in pointing out that folklore spoke of Them as dangerous and terrible but this simple rule of silence is seldom observed nonetheless.

Instead of speaking of their experience faerie-touched folk would return from genuine encounters with certain gifts. These skills carried by the light-shadowed range from the healing abilities of the Faerie Doctor, to musical and poetic gifts which have enriched our artistic heritage. This is fitting as the most potent gift Faerie has to offer us is the utter alienation of their perspective, the total Otherness of Their perspective…

Re: What book are you most looking forward to?

Also, for those who appreciate his detailed outsider art:

"The Sketchbook of Stanislav Szukalski"

“Stanisłav Szukalski (13 December 1893 – 19 May 1987) was a Polish-born painter and sculptor who became a part of the Chicago Renaissance. He also developed the pseudoscientific-historical theory of Zermatism, positing that all human culture was derived from post-deluge Easter Island.” (Wikipedia)

Ernst Fuchs, one of the founders of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism, wrote 20 years ago:

“Szukalski’s work stands up overwhelmingly next to that of the greatest masters of all styles and cultures.” When Fuchs saw Szukalski’s remarkable sketchbooks, he exclaimed that these should be published one day. Well, his wish is our command!

A major US network will air a feature-length documentary about this outstanding artist towards the end of the year, produced by a very prominent Hollywood personality.

The introduction to the sketchbook has been penned by weirdo oddball genius Charles Schneider, connoisseur of all things Szukalski.

We have compiled a facsimile of his most remarkable sketches from his 1924 diary plus some very personal and highly erotically charged and unseen drawings from his correspondence and vintage photos. The book will be bound in red leatherette, blocked in gold and printed on fine age-toned art paper.

I had wondered myself. It appears so as the author of the website said that he had this book coming out, but the attribution was a little indirect.

Love the Waits quote. I never knew that farmers mixed cow's blood to get red paint.

Put your faith in God; he won't expect you.
Put your faith in death, because it's free.
If you believe in nothing, honey, it believes in you.
