NIN: Year Zero. The Downward Spiral still remains my favorite, but Year Zero is pretty amazing. Favorite tracks include Vessel, My Violent Heart, Zero Sum, and The Warning. Once I dig into the lyrics a little deeper, my opinion might upgrade a notch.
Modest Mouse: Dead Before the Boat Sank.
Eclectic, odd, and strangely exciting. One of their best, imho.
Eagles of Death Metal: Death By Sexy AND Peace Love Death Metal
Kickass ratings for both of these. Some of the strangest shit I've heard in a while, and the whole reason I got hooked in was because I heard about their track "Midnight Creeper" and how the video was banned. Of course, you can find it on You Tube. =)
Brutal true story of Jesse James Hollywood, one of the youngest ever on the FBI most wanted list. The only big name is Justin Timberlake in it, and he does a hell of a job, much better than I expected him to. The remaining cast are faces you've seen, but it might take you a few beats to recognize. Whether you know the story or not, it doesn't change the ominous feeling you have as the ending gets closer.
Nothing that's published... YET. But I know it will be. =)
Busting my ass for a story that's got a deadline creeping up very soon...
...and evidently, my muse has been laying bricks and mortar behind my back... building a foundation for her own little world. You've met some of the characters already... and you'll meet more soon enough.
