Someone Did an article on Most Overlooked Book - my response

Someone did an article on the best overlooked books of the year. Here is my response: Most overlooked? Compare with an entire golden age of literature overlooked by everyone! Zines, or the desktop explosion from late 80′s for a decade or so, produced not only great writing, but great book making and illustration tied in with that writing. It was the first literature that included bookmaking as part of the achievement. It was the best writing of the 90′s and I bet you don’t even know about the… Continue

This week's quizzical quiz question

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

If I just said, "It's got a good beat and you can dance to it," What did I most likely just finish doing? Clue 35-98!

Seems that over time the good ratings always had the same reasons, "It's got a good beat and… Continue
