January 1st, 2008: The extremely excellent website Square America collects found vintage photographs from the first three quarters of the 20th century. The strangeness and anonymity of these photographs, most of them meant for personal use and then discarded, make them really compelling. They're organized by theme: I recommend someone taking picture of women on TV, Defaced, The Pleasures and Terrors of Youth, Costume Party!! and really, every single collection on this site is fantastic! Hey, my new book Romeo and/or Juliet comes out in less than a month! It's my choose-your-own-path version of the Shakespeare play featuring tons of great illustrations. To celebrate - and to also convince you to purchase it! - I've posted the first page, and every day we vote on which option to follow. We're doing a LET'S PLAY ROMEO AND/OR JULIET and you should totally join us! One year ago today: resolve to call more angry men 'sweetcakes' – Ryan
