Kong, Rosalita, Sweet Jane

Kong King of Skull Island
Friend Chuck Satterlee (remember he made me a zombie in Of Bitter Souls?) has a new project in Kong King of Skull Island. The story begins with Carl Denham heading back to Skull Island in 1957-- 25 years after King Kong's fall in NY. The artwork link on the home page shows some incredible images of Kong's expressions and other fantastical creatures. The colors are very vivid and deep. I also like the New York building scenes.
Issue 0 is only $1.99. Plans to be a five issue mini series.

Went to a great CD release party last night with Shoreturtle, Phillygirl, and friend L came from Arlington! The CD is About a Girl. Every one of the six bands played only songs with girl's names-- Alison's starting to happen, Lay Down Sally, Gloria, etc. The CD is 21 songs from some local bands like The Dipsomaniacs, Taggert, The Successful Failures, The Rigbees and Grammar Debate, all of which put on great sets last night. And a portion of the proceeds support PA Breast Cancer Coalition. Check out the preview songs on the myspace page.

Cool... where was the concert? Haven't been to Philly for a concert in about a year. Would love to see Swivel Chairs again after all these years. ROCK ON!
