“I want my stories to feel like memories in a certain way. The uniform panel size is a way of giving equal “emotional” space to each moment.”
– Sammy Harkham, interview
Yesterday I got really lucky at Half Price, and found a perfect copy of the massive 300+ page Kramer’s Ergot 4 selling for eight bucks! (Check out these really cool scans of the original artwork for David Heatley’s contribution, complete with no-repro blue pencilling.) When I took it up to the cashier, he looked at it and said, “So what is that, man? I had no idea where to shelve that thing.”
What is it about getting great deals that’s so damned satisfying? We’ve got some amazing bargains there over the years (best I think was a near-mint copy of Jesus and Mary Chain’s Psychocandy on LP for 98 cents–found by Meg, of course–she has the eagle eye).
If you’re like me, you’ve got a big week coming, but before you write that long To-Do list, check out our man Tufte on “Lists: Theory and Practice.”
