Re: “Love Is Not Constantly Wondering Which Star Trek Alien Is Your Favorite

@Hayley Floating World had copies of the zines last time I checked; Reading Frenzy probably does too, and I'm sure they'll also be available at the release party. Powell's has plenty of copies of the book.

Great interview! I didn't know that so many issues of the TNG 'zine were out. I only have the first issue.

Love Is Not Constantly etc etc was terrific, so cool to see stuff like this -- having loved those CYOA books as a kid. Good on Zachary and thanks again to Alison for the heads up on that.

Re: “Celebrating The Adventures of Pete & Pete

I love this show! I watched all the shorts during the summer they first aired-the kids my mom babysat, my brother and I watched Nick all day and I was rapt whenever the shorts came on, even if we had all been talking through the show that was playing. I bought the first two seasons off Amazon twice (once for my niece and nephew, more recently for myself) and. like others, have been agahst at the long promised, but long delayed, dvd release of season three. I need more P&P! My favorite moment is in season two, with Bus driver Stu getting angry at a scarecrow not answering him and, during another scene occuring in the foreground, you see him viciously attacking the mute straw stuffed man. Hilarious, nostalgic. I am a junkie for it!

Re: “Celebrating The Adventures of Pete & Pete

This show is just as amazing now as it was back then. And Iggy Pop as the father of a young Michelle Trachtenberg was perfect.

Re: “What's a Story Worth?

Jake's book on Tokyo's crimes was fascinating, especially because of the anthropological comments -- Japanese often take off their shoes and socks before committing suicide, reporters butter up cops and take gifts to their houses to gain case information, the yakuza push younger criminals to confess to crimes they may not have committed in order to later "promote" them, there are "host" bars for lonely women to waste money on greedy Romeos, etc. It's also a wrenching portrayal of sexual slavery and abuse of foreign women who get worked over for three months until their visas expire and whose wretched lot is often ignored by the cops because these women are merely foreigners. My heart goes out for the tragic and evil loss of Helena with whom he wanted to share investigative excitement. Jake is to be admired for his continuing efforts to combat sexual exploitation in Japan.

Re: “All the Sad Young Literary Girls

I think hermeneutic toolkit is a great punchline.

Re: “From Coal Country to America's Poorest Town

I haven't read the book... but considering Hedges' history with Occupy, I wonder whether his failure to provide readers with some alternative or solution isn't deliberate. After all, Occupy doesn't propose to lead people to a new world, but rather tries to inspire them to lead themselves to it - and to reuse a cliche, the first step to revolution is admitting there's a problem.

Re: “DIY Plumbing, Facials, and Terrariums

ReadyMade teaches the basics and helps a lot in trying to cope of with some small tailoring requirements. I loved Stitch 'N Bitch as it taught me basics too and not only that, but also i made a dress for my daughter after learning from it. Very nice guidance if followed in sequence.

Re: “Enslavement and Liberation

SAVE ME WHITE PEOPLE! Gawd, this book is such Orientalist schlock. I am not surprised Powells Books featured his culturally-appropriating ass for months. Has he even met any brown people? This IS Portland, after all.
