the eighty-ninth digest post
Freddie's on fire lately, even in these digests. Enjoying it all immensely
Oh man, I loved The Name of the Rose. One of my favourite half-remembered quotes:
Adso - "But it would be atrocious to kill a man in order to say 'blitiri'!"
William - "It would be atrocious to kill a man even to say 'Credo in unum deum'."
That was a very good SWANS period. I even liked The Burning World, the one Michael Gira supposedly hates because he had to compromise with producer Bill Laswell on it. Nice choice. Also: Saw Skinny Puppy's "final tour" stop in Boston this week: phenomenal show! "Worlock," "Smothered Hope," "Assimilate," "The Choke," they did them all, and the theatrics were top notch. Hail to Ogre, Cevin Key and the boys! Canada's greatest band, in my opinion.
