The two loves of my life (other than my girlfriend) are books and music. The 33 1/3 series is a godsend for these two obsessions. The books are short enough to be read in one sitting, much like listening to your favorite album. The variety of albums covered just keeps getting better, too. They've published on everything from Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures to Trout Mask Replica by Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band. Plans for books on Black Sabbath and Slayer make my metal heart pump.
For Bumbershoot, you can join 33 1/3 for a reading and listening party at 4:45 p.m., Monday Sept. 3, on the Literary Arts Stage at the Leo K. Theatre.
And when those Slayer and Sabbath books come out, you can catch me, reading and listening at the same time.
