‘Adieu all you Judges. New Juche returns with his book of ‘The Devils.’ An unsparing look into the dark rotten heart of Midlothian. Part true-crime narrative, part explicit memoir, ‘The Devils’ charts strange topographies and bloody histories. ‘Ever a fish out of water, ever a cunt,’ this is a vital occult dispatch from one of the most challenging and unnerving writers at work today.’ — AS

p.s. Hey. The blog is ultra-proud to be in the position to help usher New Juche’s brand new book into the world courtesy of this beautiful post devised by the author. I’m reading the book right now, and it’s incredible. So, luxuriate in the post and then get a copy. Thanks. Thank you, NJ! On another note, I am flying to Los Angeles today for two+ weeks of ‘haunted house’ and ‘home haunt’ exploration, research, and other work re: Zac Farley’s and my next, ‘home haunt’-centered film Room Temperature. As always when I’m away, the daily p.s. will cease, and you’ll get older posts. I’m happy to say that this current incarnation of the blog has been around long enough now that I can start launching rerun posts from its earliest days. So you’ll be seeing a few great new posts amongst years-old but hopefully still fresh rerun posts for the next while. I’ll be launching the posts from LA, so they’ll be appearing approx. 9 hours later than usual — in the afternoon Europe time rather than the morning, for instance. I might pop in here unexpectedly a time or two to say hi and catch up, depending on my schedule, but, in any case, I will return to the blog with my p.s. and all new posts again on November 6th. Do leave as many comments while I’m gone as you like, as I will respond to all of them as soon as I return. If I don’t talk with you before, have perfect Halloweens! ** Keatonbacher, Geez, weird, so sorry about your psychiatrist. That must feel really strange. Yeah, about the Dream Machine being helpful? It just seemed like a pretentious lava lamp to me. I missed out. Yeah, that coffin prop is cool. I think I had one in my fave 2019 animated props. Nice one, that. Thanks about my travels. Can’t wait to get that part over with. Survive/destroy the build up. ** David Ehrenstein, Hi. Yeah, Duras, goodie. I met Michael Lonsdale once. Incredibly shy, really tall, very nice. ** Sypha, Ah, cool. I’ll spin the new album once I’m out west. Everyone, Big to-do gift type of thing for you from Sypha. Hence, … ‘Today I released a new Sypha Nadon album, HIRAETH. Like last year’s PLEASANT SONGS it’s all-MIDI, but no vocal tracks this time, just instrumentals. It’s actually the label’s 50th release (yes, we finally hit the big 50, ha ha). Anyway, it can be listened to/downloaded for free here.’ Get that thing! ** _Black_Acrylic, She = good, yes. The Call is so close to being a real thing it’s spooky. Good luck with the final prep, and I’m happy to be doing the birth canal deed next weekend. ** KK, Hey. Yeah, Dorothy’s Duras book is on its way to me. I am a Jonas Mekas fan, yes, naturally, but … hm, maybe I haven’t read his poems. Or I’m spacing, if I did. The film meeting went fine. We have to do some clarifying work on the script to make it a bit more graspable immediately for the funding people and write a ‘statement of intention’ and stuff, but, yeah, it has begun. No, no Zoë Lund post thus far. But I will definitely check into making one ASAP. Thanks for that idea? My week? Fly to LA, jet lag survival phase, start going to haunted house attractions almost every evening and working on film script related stuff and talking to haunt makers during the days. That should be my week, I think. Yours? ** Misanthrope, Hi, G. Congrats re: The Nationals. I hope they win it all. I sincerely do. Uh, hm, maybe in a way re: ‘Climax’. Gisele really didn’t like ‘Climax’, maybe because of the parallel and her disliking of how he treated the subject, I don’t know. I honestly hadn’t compared the two in my head. I will. Ha, as soon as you get back to the States, you start getting conspiracy theories thrown at you. Sounds like the States. Big congress on finishing the draft of your novel! I know very well how big that is! Great, George, and enjoy the fiddling to the absolute max. ** Bill, Oh, right, I’m not on goodreads, but, yeah, that’s how users there remember what they’ve read. That’s interesting. Oslo its kind of gray, and not just because the sky often is. But it’s a comfy gray maybe. ** Okay. Be thoroughly with New Juche’s amazing new book this weekend and beyond. The blog will see you on Monday, and I’ll be back to pop in with blabla soon if I can, or on the 6th at the latest. Later, gators.
