What I’ve been listening to the most over the last week:
- Echo & the Bunnymen
- Alpha Blondy
- Death in June
- Dead Can Dance
- Sol Invictus
- Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
(Four-way tie for last.)

Today I am taking a photo inventory of the house to document our possessions and the renovations we have made, for insurance purposes.
Our current plan is to bug out tomorrow morning before dawn and go bunk down with Jenny & Herb in Tuscaloosa for a couple nights. Unless, of course, there’s a radical revision in Gustav’s track after he passes over Cuba and gets in the Gulf.
