Very Short Stories. I’ve always been a sucker for short stories, and the ones included on the link fit my requirements all too well (via Boingboing). FAVES: Itâ€™s behind you! Hurry before it (Rockne S. Oâ€™Bannon), Longed for him. Got him. Shit. (Margaret Atwood).
I hate poetry. I love poetry. I don’t read Neil Gaiman, but his The Day the Saucers Came made my day-sore flesh bloody ripe.
Jessica Zafra blogs now, when I do remember her exclaiming she is unlikely to do so. Could be an impostor, but reading through the posts, it does seem legit. Not so sure about the Google ad on top though.
After seeing a Blogbinder ad, clicking on it, and refreshing myself on what it offers, something struck me: based on the techie-driven direction this blog has taken, if ever I do embark on having a print version of it, only 15-20% of it will be actually ‘worth printing‘. mostly consisting of some personal posts, some music and film reviews, a picture here and there. On hindsight, everything else would be fluff.
Of course, the best blog-on-paper I’ve seen would be Cometbus. But no, it wasn’t a blog before printing: its a punk zine, and gloriously handwritten, too. I have a couple of copies I never got to return to a zinester couple who helped me write my college thesis (‘A Qualitative Study on Zines and the Pinoy Youth Culture‘ ;)), but I do plan to mail it back, soon. Really.
For comic collectors/special order book buyers: where’s the best place to order books? No plans to go to eBay, and I’ve hesistantly inquired at Powerbooks again, even though I did try to order from them my intended book -Aaron Cometbus ‘Despite Everything: A Cometbus Omnibus‘- a few years back. Been patient for almost a year of not getting my order, and just decided to take back my initial deposit despite a pending re-order.
