The American Drawings of John White 1577 - 1590

"It was on his August 1590 return voyage when he found the colony mysteriously deserted and the word 'CROATOAN' carved in a tree on the island, the meaning of which has never been ascertained."

Fighting the Big Book Chains

" . . . what's going on now in book retailing is microcosmic of what's going on in the greater society.

"You probably haven't heard about it, though (which is microcosmic of mainstream media coverage of conglomerate America, but that's another column -- although I must point out the irony that the plaintiff in the case is the brother of the late CBS newsman Charles Kuralt). But anyway, in brief: Walter Kuralt, owner of a bankrupt mini-chain called Intimate Bookshops, is suing Borders and Barnes & Noble for illegal activities -- such as demanding secret discounts from publishers -- that gave them an unfair advantage in the marketplace.

"Sound familiar? Well, it didn't get much coverage either, but in another case last year, the American Booksellers Association and 26 independent bookstores sued the chains for the same thing."


Here is Walter Kuralt's website, titled: "Allegations and Proposed Reform: by Wallace H. Kuralt, Owner of the Famous, 40-Year Old, But Now-Failed Bookstore Chain," subtitled: "A NATIONAL DISASTER: THE WAL-MARTS AND MEGA-MALLS IN AMERICA, THE DAMAGES CAUSED BY THEM AND THE FACTORS USED BY THEM TO DISPEL COMPETITION, WITH APPROACHES TO SOLUTIONS."

How can I join this fight? I detest Borders and Barnes & Noble. Recently they helped inflict a new casualty among the independent bookstore community of Seattle: Beatty Books, formerly on Third a block north of the Bon. Beatty Books was my favorite bookstore in Seattle; I grieve.

Original source of above-mentioned article Fighting the Big Book Chains: Moby Lives, also recommended.

Marijuana's Impact on Intelligence

Less than 5 joints a week gives most boost to smarts, new test says. Carl Sagan and Richard Feynman are way ahead of ya . . . I recommend a chronic intake of choline cocktail for those who smoke over 5 joints a week to better your score . . .

Brendan Sexton II: What's Wrong With Black Hawk Down

"The film Black Hawk Down paints the Somali people as wild savages. Elvis Mitchell, who reviewed the film for the New York Times when it opened in December, wrote: 'The lack of characterization converts the Somalis into a pack of snarling dark-skinned beasts--intended or not, it reeks of glumly staged racism.'

"I think that's an accurate description."

"Commentator Andrei Codrescu just re-read the autobiography of anarchist Emma Goldman. He sees parallels in the battles she waged at the beginning of the 20th century with social and political issues now. (2:45)"

I was reminded of this segment after seeing the above pic on Monkeyfist, which currently features a beautifully-themed randomized pic.

suicide girls

"Hi, I'm Missy, the head suicide girl. This is my story, every bit of it true, except the parts where i lie.

"In April of 2001, tired of Los Angeles and all it's silicone filled diversions, I woke up one morning, grabbed my hello kitty waffle maker and a bottle of pre-mixed cosmopolitans and jumped into betty, my '67 firebird convertible and hit the road.

"Somewhere around Barstow, cosmopolitan supply depleted, I realized that I was not on my way to Mexico, and I was in dire need of something to ease the pain of a complete and utter abscense of potato tacos.

"Finding myself wandering the aisles of the local drugstore, looking for solace amongst the bubble bath and level 3 pharmaceuticals I noticed a strange cross-eyed guy following me with a video camera . . . "

" . . . I wanted to know every one of those girls: the punk girls, the goth girls, the raver girls, all of them. And Spooky, well he wanted to see them naked."
