Let me preface this with the fact that I rarely like poetry, especially when read in front of crowds. This past year i enjoyed probably 5 poems total, including this one and one written by my friend Eva involving a velociraptor. Tao Lin is the author of books such as Bed, Eeeee Eee Eeee, and Shoplifting from American Apparel. Enjoy 🙂

I felt really sick after i read that quote in an article on Engadget today. I thought it may have been the potatoes i was eating at the time, but the more i read the article the sicker i get. I don’t see the paper book becoming extinct in my lifetime, but it’s really sad to see the way things are heading. I wonder if there will be textbooks in school in 10-20 years, or if every student will be given a Kindle (or whatever the e-book reader of choice is at the time).
As fans of the clip art magazine Crap Hound by Sean Tejaratchi know, back issues are always high in demand and go for a lot on Ebay. Thanks to Chloe Eudaly of Show & Tell Press/Reading Frenzy, issues #6 and #7 are currently in print for $12 each. According to a post on the Reading Frenzy facebook, a reprint of Crap Hound #4 is coming out in January 2010, followed by a reprint of issue #5 in the summer and the brand new issue # 8 due in the fall/winter of 2010.

Here’s a couple pictures of the organizer so you can see it better:
I have always dreamed of having a zine making workshop in my house, complete with printer, photocopier, long arm stapler, paper cutter, etc… While i don’t see myself buying a photocopier anytime soon, i am a little closer to my dream. Since i won’t be with my family for the holidays this year, x-mas came a little early for me this year in the form of a priority mail box full of wonderful gifts from my mom and brother. Among those were the beautiful long arm stapler pictured here. I have yet to try it out but it looks a lot nicer than the ones i have used at Kinkos in the past.
