The mitten hates to read



Montana needs some books, ya'll.
That bookshelf is $%^&*! Perhaps I'll get a much much smaller one custom made. (apparently it isn't buyable) Lord knows I ain't got that many books.

I've been doing Chemistry for 8 hrs and I feel like I have barely soaked up any significant information. This is troubling. Enough of that mess.

OH shit.


Just bought this. Very excited!

Take a listen to Taylor's gorgeous and haunting (and aptly titled) contribution below; fans of his other band will no doubt be extremely pleased

Oh, Davey Byrne


Woke up refreshed, got in my car, drove to work. A usual Sunday morning. On the way I was listening to npr, Weekend Edition Sunday, and a familiar voice was being interviewed. Well the voice wasn't exactly familiar, just the content. Liane Hansen and the interviewee were discussing biking in NYC and said interviewee's recently published book. I said WHOA HEY DAVE BYRNE, THAT YOU? 'Course it was. Who else? Listen please.

The photo to your left is the man himself with one of his bike racks that are scattered 'round Manhattan and Brooklyn.

TRUNK Books


















Volume one: Hair

Trunk books are a new series of personal, sensual books that are intended to be filled with beautiful and fascinating content. The idea is that they’re filled with treasure, just like an old trunk in the attic. Each book will focus on a part of the human body and be filed with short pieces of writing, art, and photography. There will be interviews, essays, fiction, photo essays, poems, and art works addressing multifarious dimensions of the theme. The series is aimed at an intelligent, engaged audience interested in both “high” and popular culture and is intended to have wide appeal.

Aspects of hair that get very little attention, cultural, historical, religious etc, are finally getting their shining moment. The cover is what actually caught my eye. Fact: I judge a book by its cover.

Also, the second volume is dedicated to Blood.
