Throughout America, many states disagree about what constitutes a “deadly weapon.” In some states, a deadly weapon is an instrument that is specifically designed for the purpose of causing death or serious bodily injury. Other jurisdictions simply define “deadly weapon” as any substance or tool that is capable of causing death or serious bodily injury. (Via Criminal Law: Cases and Materials.)
Stars of the Lid – That Finger On Your Temple Is The Barrel Of My Raygun
One of my favorite albums of all-time. I play Stars of the Lid non-stop at the library and I play them again at three in the morning. I am a very calm man. If you have suggestions for other artists in a similar vein, please send them my way.
Nobody could smoke a cigarette like Linda Darnell.
Stories from the white spaces on the map.
A dub field of mid-century blues.
Love among the ruins.
Lonely gas stations and motel neon.
Her best friend was a little battery-powered radio.
He felt close to her while he drove, his insides vibrating like a teenage dream.
Somewhere Roy Orbison plays on a battered old radio.
There’s no such thing as weirding out the normals these days.
Things I’ve read that altered me.
The gatefold sleeve and dusty touch, the hiss and pop.
Notes and scrawls from my seminars.
