Here's a long new story of mine up on Narratively, including: Casablanca, the French in North Africa, terrorism, anti-terrorism, an assassin, and a forgotten girl aviatrix. http://narrative.ly/pulp-non-fiction/amazing-aviatrix-wartime-casablanca/
A daring teenage girl defies authority to become Morocco’s first female pilot and the hero of a young nation—then the victim of an assassination still shrouded in mystery.

Today's Musical Obsession: EELS - "Mistakes of My Youth"
Alright, there may have been one or two, Mistakes of My Youth. Don’t ask, for example, about the night with the capes. But I’m not going to obsess about it.

Today's Musical Obsession: The Courtneys - "Lost Boys"
Chunka-chunka-chunka, train music, highway music, is what tends to get me obsessed. Trance music, gnaoua sung by a 50’s girl group who’ve left a “vampire teenage boyfriend” behind.

Today's Musical Obsession: Holy Esque - "Ladybird Love"
These guys from Glasgow wrote two of my favorite songs from this year. “Ladybird Love” is from  their 2012 EP, and it’ll likely be obsessing me in 2016. This is one of the roughest, dirtiest voices (Pat Hynes) you’ll ever hear, and it’ll make you want to run out and bang down a door somewhere.

Today's Musical Obsession: Eno & Hyde - "Lilac"
This one I’m really loving. 9 minutes and 25 seconds. Like a seed sprouting and growing into something you’d want to look at for a while. It’s from the new album, High Life, by Brian Eno and Karl Hyde. As much as I love a song that tears it all down, this one just grows and grows, and makes everything you might have torn down seem just right.
