Why is my blog called Inhuman Swill? Because you can unscramble the pieces to make William Shunn.

Ground zero for zombies

A more full report of last evening's reading with [info]matociquala will have to wait until I'm less frantic at the office, but I will commend to your attention one photo by the Slushgod (my wife likes it) and one tale of zombie visitation by [info]nick_kaufmann.

Back to work!

Jump, jump for my love

I have been infected by [info]baldanders (well, I asked for it) with the music meme where you get a letter and have to list ten songs that start with it without consulting any reference material. Just the first ten songs that come to mind.

This was much harder than I thought it was going to be. Here is my list:

  1. "Jump" by Van Halen
  2. "Jane Says" by Jane's Addiction
  3. "Jack of Speed" by Steely Dan
  4. "James" by Pat Metheny Group
  5. "Jack Frost Blues" by Jack Frost
  6. "Jump" by N*E*R*D
  7. "Jumpin' Jive" by Joe Jackson
  8. "Joy" by Lucinda Williams
  9. "Jesus He Knows Me" by Genesis
  10. "Japanese Cowboy" by Ween

If you want a letter, let me know.

ShunnCast #23

| No Comments

Epidode #23 of "ShunnCast" is now available, in which the propriety of Debussy is called into question, an impertinent hooker preempts Oingo Boingo, and the merits of harvesting one's own Christmas tree are put to the test and found wanting. (And a happy birthday to me!)

And if you have the inclination, my appearance this past Saturday on "Hour of the Wolf" can be heard here.
