Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills


"Hi. You know, it always feels good to listen to some good music like yours. Keep it going and never give up." -- Victoria (Grenada, MS)

Looks like I'm going to be helping out the insanely talented Ike Sours (SLeePFeeDeR and a bunch of other great bands) do some recording of some of his new material in May. Looking forward to it for certain.

"The case with most men is that they go out into life with one or another accidental characteristic of personality of which they say: 'Well, this is the way I am. I cannot do otherwise.' Then the world gets to work on them and thus the majority of men are ground into conformity. In each generation a small part cling to their 'I cannot do otherwise' and lose their minds. Finally there are a very few in each generation who in spite of all life's terrors cling with more and more inwardness to this 'I cannot do otherwise'. They are the geniuses. Their 'I cannot do otherwise' is an infinite thought, for if one were to cling firmly to a finite thought, he would lose his mind." - Søren Aabye Kierkegaard

I suppose it should be noted that on this day in 1973 Pink Floyd released DARK SIDE OF THE MOON. Sales of 45,000,000 (almost as many copies as I sold of my 2003 album WASP 51!), would seem to indicate that a lot of folks sort of liked the record.
