"We gladly feast on those who would subdue us."
Society in Decline:Intrastate Commerce - yet more evidence that the USA (in general) has done a better job holding on to great midcentury signage. Year 2008 in Photographs - the Boston Globe's The Big Picture has a three-part best of series, this is part one. Foodpairing - teaches you how to combine your foods in new ways, AND it has suggestions for substitutions. The Selby - beautiful photographs of beautiful people in their beautiful homes. Like the best decor magazine you've ever seen without all the ads for flooring. FrŁli - the fruitiest beer I've ever drunk. Free Rice - show off your vocabulary AND feed people. Corey Arnold - the coldest, loveliest photos you'll ever see. Ali Bosworth - a photographer who lived in Victoria when I was there. Maybe the opposite of the above shots, Bosworth's tend to be warm and drowsy.
The We Are Become Pals book is here! You can buy it right now, for $16 in hardcover! It is a book that feels nice to read, and feels nice to hold in your hand. In hardcover it makes the perfect gift for your own best friend.
Itís a hard book to describe, but this is the blurb we came up with:
We are Become Pals is the story of Jane and Helen, and of their friendship. As with all friendships, it is a story filled with cops, lockpicks, astronauts, secret codes, face punching and quiet moments where you realize that you arenít alone in the world.
The hardcover has all the original chapters (which you can still read online for free right here), and all new material that follows their friendship further into their lives, as they get old and crotchety and awesome together.
