A softer world: 627. Emily So I bought this pretty edition of David Foster Wallace's Broom of the System when Joey and I were in Ohio.

I read two-thirds of it, then made the mistake of putting it down for a while and came back to it this week. Now: SO CONFUSED. Let this be a lesson to you, all ye who resolved to read Infinite Jest (or even other DFW fiction) this year - don't put it down and think it'll be fine to pick up again later! If you'd rather read comics, this little snippet from Octopus Pie is cute and funny, even though it's about a maddening topic. A softer world: 626. Joey Happy new year!

I am excited about all the sex I will maybe have this year. And the friendly hugs. But those are better experienced in the moment, where I think sex anticipation is pretty great all on its own even before the actual sex. Okay, let's be honest, I have never had sex.

She makes custom drawings of people, drawn with Justin Bieber, riding a unicorn. The whole project was based on the suggestion of a child of Beth's acquaintance, and it's really interesting to see her tongue-in-cheek work featured alongside pieces that feel a good deal more... sincere? Beth has started a gallery of the unicorn commissions, do go have a look!

We are on our way to Vancouver this weekend for Comix and Stories! Joey The We Are Become Pals book is here! It’s a hard book to describe, but this is the blurb we came up with: We are Become Pals is the story of Jane and Helen, and of their friendship. The hardcover has all the original chapters (which you can still read online for free right here), and all new material that follows their friendship further into their lives, as they get old and crotchety and awesome together.

So I'm going to repost here some of my old links here: Society in Decline:Intrastate Commerce - yet more evidence that the USA (in general) has done a better job holding on to great midcentury signage. Year 2008 in Photographs - the Boston Globe's The Big Picture has a three-part best of series, this is part one. Foodpairing - teaches you how to combine your foods in new ways, AND it has suggestions for substitutions. The Selby - beautiful photographs of beautiful people in their beautiful homes.
