Furthering the McSweeney's nerding: Issue 17 sounds awesome awesome awesome and you know maybe a renewal of subscription would be in order, although obviously not immediately, but sometime before the issue ships. Also, the book by Salvador Plascencia, The People Of Paper, looks like it will be very good indeed. There's also a book of photography of bicycles locked to poles, which is the kind of thing I would get someone for a gift and watch them be befuddled, and then maybe come around to thinking is pretty awesome.
I've got this group project for class that is due on wednesday, and hasn't been done, because of the nature of group projects. Hopefully, we will end up pounding it out powered by desperation and panic.
