Kiss Me Deadly = Hell Yes.
Others = Interest waning.

Holy crap, do I ever hate the cover for Kiss Me Deadly. Consciously emulating bad design doesn't make it good. The Insignificance cover, on the other hand, is jaw-dropping.

Man I part company with you there. It screams pulp fiction in a way that makes my heart sing.

Reading this piece makes me really excited about seeing People On Sunday.

Yeah, but I could almost see someone glancing at it and thinking "Man, why is this public domain disc so freaking expensive?"

People on Sunday and Insignificance look terrific. And if I'm not mistaken, there should be a B&N sale in June or July that will nicely coincide with these releases.
Oh, you're paying way too much for worms, man. Who's your worm guy?
