OK, so, a digression from roleplaying here, but does anyone else know the song “.41 Thunderer”? It’s on Drum Hat Buddha by Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer. I think of it because:
“We rode out from Canaan in search of our fortune,
Or something worth dying for, beauty or evermore.
Over the blackwater flats with jackrabbits running
Under a sky burning brimstone and reckoning
Sweet for the hope of rain,
And the sand in your teeth grinding tiny white diamonds
To moments of loss that you cannot explain.”
That seems to apply equally to Blood Meridian or the West that leads off Pynchon’s Against the Day or Dogs in the Vineyard.
