“…what really matters is what you like, not what you are like…Books, records, films–these things matter. Call me shallow but it’s the truth…” (Record store owner Rob Gordon, as played by John Cusack in “High Fidelity”)
We almost always talk about things that we love on the podcast and usually that love is directed towards comics and lately the World Cup.

Books of the Week include: Silver Surfer, Star Trek: City on the Edge of Forever, Ghosted, Hellboy in Hell, The Wicked + the Divine, The Occultist, The Strain, Best American Comics of 2013.
(*With Pamelia Kurstin’s album “Gymnopedie” unavailable, here’s a video of Ms. Kurstin playing (among others) “Lush Life” from that LP, as well as giving a brief overview of the Theremin, the first electronic musical instrument. For some reason, the video has gotten shrunk; click on “full frame”, and it ‘ll be fine!)
