Solomon Love is a small time blues guitarist in Memphis who stumbles onto a murder. A murder committed by a cop. Now, Solomon and the cop are hunting each other through streets of Memphis. The cop has not only the police’s resources, but criminal allies as well. Solomon has a few friends, and the fact he’s a centuries-old werewolf on his side.

Friday Quote – F. A. Hayek

What we have to deal with in the case of “social justice” is simply a quasireligious superstition of the kind which we should respectfully leave in peace so long as it merely makes those happy who hold it, but which we must fight when it becomes the pretext of coercing other men.

Metal Tuesday- Seven Kingdoms – Open the Gates

Seven Kingdoms is my favorite local band, and this song is one of the reasons why.


All controlled by this world

Dreams shadowed by their walls

All this masses heed the call

Prisoners of the lie

Deveived to never try

Brought down by the iron hand

Our strenght will shine on

Only we can choose the path

Our quest for liberation

Finally here at last

Open the gates (Open the gates)

To the threshold of dreams

From pain endured

Choose your own fate

Darkness will fade (Darkness will fade)

All light to embrace

Power is yours

These chains must break

We were born to rebel

No longer locked up in this hell

Forever glory we will dwell

The strong will ride to face the hordes

By our blades driving force

Rays of light shine through the storm

Our strength will shine on…

Open the gates…

Friday Quote – Louis Pasteur

Science advances through tentative answers to a series of more and more subtle questions which reach deeper and deeper into the essence of natural phenomena.

Metal Tuesday- Semargl – Discolove

Pop satanic metal, round two. FIGHT!


If you feel the way I feel,

take my hand, It’ll be unreal

When we jump i’ll tell the truth

I can’t take my heart from you

I feel you with blessed touch

Want to tell it you so much

The coldness of you makes me sick

Will we meet another week?
I give you all my spirit Come and take it

You can’t be blind since you first felt it

You can see my wings when your eyes are closed

Come fly away with me
Drive into the oncoming

Feel my heart is burning
You will not find the perfect me

Wake and find paint on your skin

When you read text upon your back

Not all whispers would be black
I give you all my spirit Come and take it

You can’t be blind since you first felt it

You can see my wings when your eyes are closed

Come fly away with me
Drive into the oncoming

Feel my heart is burning

Friday Quote- Amanda Marcotte

Atheists are routinely asked how people will know not to rape and murder without religion telling them not to do it, especially a religion that backs up the orders with threats of Hell.

Believers, listen to me carefully when I say this: When you use this argument, you terrify atheists. We hear the only thing standing between you and Ted Bundy is a flimsy belief in a supernatural being made up by pre-literate people trying to figure out where the rain comes from.

This is not very reassuring if you’re trying to argue from a position of moral superiority.

Amanda Marcotte

I wouldn’t necessarily agree with terrify, but I do think it’s a strawman argument that isn’t quite as secure as many think.
