East of Eden


So there is usually a book tied to an album I create... it's a little hard to explain - but for the last 3, there has been a book that pushed me through the entire creative process.

Alabaster Flesh was Joseph Campbell's "Hero with a Thousand Faces," Shadowed was Fyodor Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punishment"... I would say that Lovers and Leaders is strongly tied to John Steinbeck's AAAMAZING novel - "East of Eden."
If you haven't read it, I promise you it will blow you out of the water. The movie with James Dean is quite good too. I believe they are making a new one actually...

Oops, didn't mean to press publish; but as I was saying...I promise myself not to buy any more books until I read the ones I own.

Hmmm...temptation [^_^].

Oh no, just remember the new Star Trek Mirror Universe books came out...dark and twisty; guess I am getting the books soon.
