Thanks! Yes, Karen Black is in it. The trailer looked interesting, so I added it to my order.

I have bought A LOT of graphic novels since my last hiatus. Here are a few highlights:













"I believe that Strauss will remain one of the characteristic and outstanding figures in musical history. Works like Salome, Elektra and Intermezzo, and others will not perish.” - Arnold Schoenberg on Richard Strauss

Some recent graphic novel purchases:



This will be my fourth version of Watchmen, I also own the Absolute Edition, Collector’s Edition and Deluxe Edition. I think I’m good now. ;)



I already owned the Absolute Edition of V For Vendetta, but it’ll be nice to have the small, hardback of it as well.

Picked up some non-classical CDs today along with some classical:

Peter Gabriel:  Us
Roy Orbison:  Mystery Girl
*Don Henley:  The End of the Innocence
Steve Winwood:  Back in the High Life
The English Beat:  What is Beat?
Bruce Springsteen:  Born to Run

* A bit of a boo boo here:  Was trying to remember whether or not I had this one on CD; turns out I did.  It's the LP format that I didn't/don't own.  For what its worth, the LP version of his Building the Perfect Beast is phenomenal!  I love the songs and the recording of it and the pressing (even on an inexpensive used copy) are wonderful!  I'll try and find a friend to pass it on to.  :)

Us is a beautifully moving album.

Back in the high life has a great, uplifting message and the sound on the original mastering is superb!
