get your ugly baby out of my upscale wine and beer retail outlet, please. while you’re moving your baby, some shit that needs to get addressed because it is making my brain leak out my ear.
1. Andersonville: The Lincoln Park of gay? Don’t get caught up is all.
2. All of Chicago is bad. I figured this out using math. Except for Hyde Park, nee.
3. Strand Used Books tote bags. That store isn’t good, ok, and that bag doesn’t even have a phone number on it.
4. Ways we can fight back: having children at younger ages. I ate a whole box of licorice today, that wasn’t fighting back, or part of fighting back. Felt like I should make a clean breast of things.
Please stop pretending to actual journalism or at least bring in a non-scott van pelt outlet to read the scary human-interest hurricane coverage.
Money / Martin Amis
People seem reticent on giving this book/M. Amis due respect. Sam suggests this is because the fortune cookie version of this book is “You are a shithead”
The Razor’s Edge / W. Somerset Maugham
Just not good. This is actually, if you follow, part of my project to start a laboratory-controlled hipster backlash against Bill Murray; at any rate, this shit is dumb, Maugham is dumb, and if you like him, I will bite your hand.
Some Dreamers of the Golden Dream / Joan Didion
Holy TV this is awesome California is weird. I want to move east again. I think working at a liquor store is starting to abrade my relationship with god and scientific reality.
