a hawk and a hacksaw



a hawk and a hacksaw is the other band playing with dark dark dark tonight.

i dyed my hair very black the other day.  like elvira black.

i got some dye pots going right now dyeing sueded hemp and old doilies black.

i'm about 20 pages away from finishing "the bone people" -that link is wikipedia and i didn't read it through because the end of the story is revealed fyi.   it's been a hard read.  it's dark, twisted, violent.

i want this book to turn out ok.  i didn't care for any of the characters until just now at the very end.  now i find myself caring.  they are so flawed.  but i want redemption.  i want to know that they can have the life they've had up till now and still things can turn for the better.  i guess i want to know that there is always that chance to be stripped bare to the bone and then be able to return.

AWESOME post, awesome music...annnnd i also read this book, many moons ago. i tried passing it on, but each person said they JUST COULDN'T READ SUCH SADNESS AND VIOLENCE. i am glad that i read it though, even though very difficult as you said. and i too, so wanted something to turn out more RIGHT than it did, such is life for some, unfortuneately

Love the music! Lively and mournful at the same time.
