First- Thanks to Queen O’ The Blog Scene Katherine Sharpe of Readymade Magazine, who just did an online write-up for my new web/tv series kick-off “Tiny Yellow House”- and to Mimi Zeiger (also a writer from Readymade). Those two are too kind, and have been super-mega-spectacularly supportive of my book and weird projects! CHECK: http://www.readymade.com/blogs/readymade/humble-homes-presents-the-hickshaw/ AND http://loudpaper.typepad.com/loudpaper/2010/02/tiny-revolutions.html
Otherwise….I Just love this photo of a tiny, tiny house/shack in who-knows-where, and I wish I could remember the photo’s source (perhaps http://www.shedworking.co.uk -a great site). But to me, its almost picture perfect of “what relaxation is” -personified.
And as for the “musty novels” title- I have always loved the smell of used paperback stores, ever since my days shufflin’ around “The Book Swap” in Guilford, CT. My father Glenn built all their shelving when I was a kid, and the Lipton’s who owned the place, often let me pick out a book to bring home. Good Memories. Boss Pizza n’ Musty Novels. I guess the place is still there (sure hope so). There’s not enough hours in a lifetime for the books I’d love to read, and I’m still not even HALF sold on downloadable books- it just strikes me as a cheap, hollow, imitation (at the expense of angering its supporters-sorry!). Maybe I’m just a young-ish, old fashioned guy. That, or just damn stubborn.
