Upcoming House of Leaves series

I had misplaced my copy of Mark Z. Danielewski’s House of Leaves. I recently found it…and it’s fat with torn-up legal pad papers, marking pages. Which got me thinking…

So. Intermingled with other episodes on other topics, for the rest of this year I am going to do a deep-dive on this book and its accompanying album, Haunted, by Mark’s sister, Poe. There will be geeky horror analysis and reaction podcasting. I’ll podcast as I go, and do psychology/horror/history/parapsychology/physics geek-dives 😉 like I did with Stephen King‘s Eclipse series (Episode 19; website entry). I’ll schedule out my reading and the episodes so that this doesn’t become the House of Leaves show, so that there are plenty of other topics in-between. I’ll hopefully have some horror author friends on as well to discuss this book/phenomenon.

I hope this sounds fun to you! I’m pretty jazzed to re-enter the Navidson house.

A story of a book:

I found out recently, after ten-plus years of having our dogs, Arlo Guthrie and Ellie Mae, that the folk singer Woody Guthrie, Arlo Guthrie’s father, wrote one novel, about a couple struggling during the Dust Bowl.

The female protagonist in the novel was named Ella May.

We didn’t name Ellie. She came to us named.

#synchronicity is real.

If you’re interested, it’s House of Earth, written in 1947, and you can buy it here and support independent bookstores:

via Instagram https://instagr.am/p/CBmJqBZjCR3/ …and I found my “The Glamorous Life” 45! 💎 Just played it on my Victrola and that initial percussive beat is still the best. I will never forget seeing @sheilaedrummer on an awards show—the Grammys, maybe?—and they gave you glow-in-the-dark drumsticks and turned the lights off, and your sticks were just these beautiful musical blurs in the dark. 🥁 ✨

@prince, I do believe I have some purple velvety scrapbook/craft paper to back this with—I am framing this for my podcasting office. ☔️ 💜 You are still the best. @princemuseum
