The incredible melting Santa

Hello my dears, well Preston was a tough gig for all sorts of reasons.

Got home late and so left late to visit Phil and Frances. I needed to shower and drink a fair bit before I was right to go. Needless to say my lovely wife Sharon did all the driving. It was a great night. We ate nachoes, talked about all sorts of weird stuff and watched the "Don't Open 'til Doomsday" episode of the original Outer Limits, which was very cool. The character of the old bride is over the top but in a nicely desperate and creepy way.

Phil also loaned me a handful of Residents Cd's. I love the Residents and have a lot of their early stuff on LP which I simply can't afford to replace with CD's. I'm hoping to do a panel on the narrative aspects of their work at Continuum 3 since so much of it has genre elements. It's so nice to have the chance to hear them again. I don't love all their stuff, I find some of their early stuff a bit too discordant, but some of their later work like the Mark of the Mole trilogy and God in Three Persons is interesting and insightful. Thanks Phil!
