But where danger is, grows the saving power also. Said Von Hellingrath. Well, according to Heidegger in The Question Concerning Technology. Anyhow. Songs by Disneyland After Dark, John Fogerty, The Dry Branch Fire Squad...this one kinda went (more) off the rails to be honest.
I think we are in rats' alley/Where the dead men lost their bones. Said T.S. Eliot. And songs by Lorin Walker Madsen, Naked Prey, Tia...something...James Talley, ELVIS, Lucinda Williams, Bob Wayne...and more. Not much more. But more nonetheless. Or is it nevertheless.

Batman hid behind a mask, perpetually at war with the villains of his psyche. But he couldn't keep his villains incarcerated. The injustice of love always escapes. Even an alter ego can't protect you when you're alone. And songs by Kitty Wells, Merle Haggard, Joe Jackson, Swervedriver, Abbey Lincoln and Nathan Kalish.
In sanatoriums they laugh less and less, Less certain of a cure; and the loud madman Sinks now into a more terrible calm. Said W.H. Auden. Plus songs from and by Bobby Bare, Glen Campbell, The The, David Alan Coe, Emmylou Harris, etc.
