Another week, another group of links. Do enjoy.
"The Berg" by Richard Smyth, as recommended by Jamie Delano. Sort of science fiction about the past that's really about the now. A short and biting read.
Appalachian Folk Magic in ESOTERIC online.
Haint blue and why it is, speaking of folk magic.
1971 trash crime DAY OF THE WOLVES via Del Dinosaur
Lessons from the This Factory, via David Brothers, sort of a "Manufacturing Consent" for the content mill age.
Hayden Milligan, Appalachian horror host and horror circuit regular, an American story like no other.
The CIA makes a club hit in 1978? Real life is weirder than fiction because fiction has to make sense.
Algiers interviewed on the release of their third album (which I just picked up over the weekend and its pretty great, as I've come to expect from them.)
At rest in the Fields
Natural funerals in Texas, with thanatology being a real thing.
French death-house, okay, maybe not. But it's worth a spin.
I'm considering getting back to talking about writing and such here, other than the general housekeeping stuff I've been doing. I'd like to get a few more weeks packed away before doing that. And, believe it or not, I've got plenty of things that I want to talk about in long form that just don't sit well on Twitter. But that's kind of a hard sell these days. I mean, I don't have a Patreon or Medium account to turn these clicks into something. I just have thoughts, kinda like I did back in 2003 when I crawled back online.
