Piracy: Book Cover Draft


I’d have bought this:

I then came up with a new idea to do a meta-book type of design, where I laid a piracy reference over a faux old book. The chain didn’t work because it reinforced the nautical sense of the word piracy and the CD was wrong because it’s already anachronistic and too specifically tied to music piracy. But this idea of superimposing something on top of a faux old book ended up being important.

What’s Up With That: Why It’s So Hard to Catch Your Own Typos


This explains why your readers are more likely to pick up on your errors. Even if you are using words and concepts that they are also familiar with, their brains are on this journey for the first time, so they are paying more attention to the details along the way and not anticipating the final destination.

Harlem Hopscotch


One foot down, then hop! It’s hot.
          Good things for the ones that’s got.
Another jump, now to the left.

          Everybody for hisself.

In the air, now both feet down.
         Since you black, don’t stick around.
Food is gone, the rent is due,

          Curse and cry and then jump two.

All the people out of work,
         Hold for three, then twist and jerk.
Cross the line, they count you out.

          That’s what hopping’s all about.

Both feet flat, the game is done.
They think I lost. I think I won.

Edwige Belmore: Death of a Punk Queen


Lisa Webster, religious scholar & co-editor-in-chief of Religion Dispatches:

I met Edwige at an ashram in upstate New York in 1988, where she’d been living for a year — being clean, being happy. She was, of course, the person assigned to welcoming guests, sharing the house rules. Doing the door, in other words. She became my beloved, my guru, my frustration and joy, for the next five years in New York, then Seattle and Miami Beach. We went to India together for four months, too. Our breakup was just a jolt in the road — I have held close to her great heart for more than half my life. Her greatest grace? She loved fiercely and without fear. Edwige could cross a border like nobody else: high-low, fashion-street, church-ashram. Her two career aspirations as a child? Nun and race-car driver.
