As usual, be sure to click everything. You know the drill by now. I would have posted this sooner, but...
No matter how much you think you know your way around Amazon, guess again. From 35-byte product URLs (great for ASCII email newsletters; hey there's an idea! I should write one) to... well, check out the middle button at the right, for instance. There is more in heaven and earth than is dreamed of in your philosophy, Horatio. Essential reading for every red-blooded blogger, even if your name's not Horatio.
An excellent reference to all Right Thinking People's favorite search engine, and thus a must-have for all have-nots. Co-author Tara Calishain wrote the first review of EGR in January 1997. "Reading this newsletter," she said, "is like riding down a steep hill on a Big Wheel with no brakes. Christopher Locke, Man Behind EGR, has a command of the language that makes reading a great ride." Well, this sucks, doesn't it? I'm reviewing my near-defunct* zine instead of her book. I must be a narcissist after all. (* not really dead; more like a resting parrot.)
Ah, but you see, Tara gets two entries, so I'm saved once again from the dreaded NPD diagnosis. Anyway, this one is smaller than the big fat one above. It fits in your pocket, if you have a pocket, thus the Pocket Guide designation. Look, you know and I know that I'm just filling out this table and have nothing terribly meaningful to say about these books except that they're super useful for all sorts of seditious projects. Just click the fucking links, OK?
Until a minute ago, I had no photos. I still have no photos to speak of.
I don't even have a camera. But all these people were linking to "my photos."
It was embarassing. It's still embarassing. But I'm used to that.
