What I'm reading this week:�@Soul Circus by George Pelecanos - an excellent hard-boiled detective novel set in the poorer part of Washington DC
What I'm listening to this week: Slingshot Professionals by Kelly Joe Phelps - can't say enough good things about this guy. I bought his last album for about four different people for Christmas. Fantastic singer-songwriter-lap slide and acoustic guitar player. His music is like staying up all night talking and drinking too much coffee with you best friends. A mix of Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and Charlie Patton - low key and mellow but very intense stuff. What the Yomiuri page for my review soon.
