Paris, Friday 13


Tired of that time...

But imagination is not a refuge from reality, but a response.

Imagination is the part in us that no person or organization can destroy.

Our poetic universes, indestructible fortresses, can not be reach by death and horror.

Let us be stronger…

I Didn't Come Over On The Mayflower... But Some Of My Records Did, They're THAT Old!

Yes, 78 r.p.m. platter fans, here it is November first already, and the goblins are gone and the turkeys are coming and it's time for the November Pilsner's Picks (or Pilgrim's Picks, as you'll see when you go to the page).

I've started something new this month; and that is, asking for money. There's still no charge for the music, but I'm now accepting voluntary contributions (which is a polite way to say "begging"). For a full explanation of why, and how you can toss a few…

From A Deep And Forbidding Eldritch Vault Come... The October Pilsner's Picks!

Actually, there's not much of a "boo factor" in this month's Pilsner's Picks— I really don't have much music that's suitable for Halloween parties. I did manage to scare up one ghostly number, though, although it's not very scary. It's more like something that you'd hear on the soundtrack of an early animated cartoon, accompanying the dance of some "rubber hose" ghosts.

Anyway, here are the October Picks (with a weak, obligatory "Boo" from yours truly).…

Submitted for your approval, the September edition.

Miskatonic Mondays - Children of Lovecraft

Lights out, everybody.

On Miskatonic Mondays we celebrate the "weird" fiction of HP Lovecraft and the genre of otherworldly horror it spawned.

When Lovecraft and Mike Mignola come together… well, that’s just about all the horror fandoms in one place. It’s actually Lovecraft’s birthday this month, having just passed (August 20th) and seems only appropriate to announce more Lovecraft news, particularly since it’s the 125th anniversary of his…

At Pilsner's Picks, We Don't Poach Anything But Eggs!

With all the controversy that's going on right now over hunting, I have to admit that I did a LOT of hunting in my callow youth— hunting for rare 78's, that is, in the darkest and most forbidding thrift shops of New York City and northern New Jersey!

I took many trophies, which are now presented to the curious as Pilsner's Picks; here's the August edition.

Pilsner Presents Some Sonic Firecrackers— It's the July Picks!

Some fireworks that are very old can still pack a wallop! So please stand back while I light the fuse on the July edition of Pilsner's Picks. Included this month is a rare, late electrcal recording by John Philip Sousa's marching band. "The March King" began recording on Edison cylinders back in the 1890's, and most of his records were made in the very low-fi acoustical format that was the industry standard until 1925. Then, the new electrical recording method was perfected, and it…
