Well, I guess that’s it for summer. It really did speed by, but hopefully yours was full of sunshine and frivolity.

One thing I know about Parker… don’t ever double-cross his ass. Richard Stark, the darker side of Donald E. Westlake, made that considerably clear with each and every Parker novel.

Listener purists have been telling me that nothing has ever been able to remotely replicate the experience of vinyl — that slick, oily sound that feels… Read More ›

Brave New Toronto
