Philip Pullman’s new Lyra book is out and I’m somewhere around the halfway mark. What he continues to do is build upon these fascinating worlds and he’s doing it in a way that seems like gold to his existing fanbase, yet manages to draw new readers into his dense shit. It’s incredible and I would be reading it right now if I weren’t writing about it. I’m reminded of that Ian Curtis quote. Something something, out of hand.
E3 happened last week and the dust is still settling. We saw a load of reveals, gameplay and orchestral performances which is nice and even more things got release dates, some of them with more power to levitate your eyebrows offa your facade than others. There were also appearances from certain people to cause a heart to chorus.
‘Bitches Brew’ by Miles Davis is a crazed affair. It is the most acidic of jazz so that needs must be your bag before venturing in, as something with this much mood on LP is made for a very specific room. However, those who do shall be richly rewarded.
‘Basement Beehive’ landed on my mat late last year and it’s taken me a while to make my way through the trackless with any kind of conscious recall in tow. There are fifty-six tracks. 56. Take it either way, alpha or numerical and that’s a lot of tracks. Fortunately, you’re unlikely to have heard any of them before.
‘Oddworld:Abe’s Oddysee’ on the PS1 kept me well and truly glued for at least one summer in the early Noughties but I never got past that bee ridden mountain, with or without the “help” of a desert type tauntaun. Fortunately, Yourub exists and I can finally reach those once unvisited, unsurmountable heights via the most vicarious of means.
