What are the haps my friends

January 8th, 2007: Hey, if you're in Toronto, here's a neat art project you might want to check out! It's called Self Portrait: A Disappearing Archive. Robin Pacific is giving away her entire collection of 1,670 books: they're hung up on the walls next to a piece of paper with their title, and if you want one, you just sign your name beside the title, take the book off the wall, put it on one of the provided shopping bags, take it home, and read it. It's a cool idea, and I like how there's a trace of the person who decided to give the book a second life. It's also a great show to visit if you're a book lover! I hope to check it out before all the awesome books are gone.

YOU LIKE TO READ: Probably, huh? Well GOOD NEWS: my book To Be or Not To Be (choose-your-own-path Hamlet!) is in the new Humble eBooks Bundle! Up to FIFTEEN books at a pay-what-you-want price, plus you support charity (and artists)! Definitely worth checking out, if you ask me.

NEW SHIRTS: As you may have noticed, I've spent the past all this year coming up with a new shirt design every month. Then I sold them for two weeks only! But now they're BACK... for two weeks only. Check them out! There are some PRETTY FRIGGIN' AWESOME shirts here. There's also a new one about dating, kinda?

One year ago today: "everyone has better reasons for being here than *I*", t-rex
