i read this book a long, long time ago, waaaay back before i used to write reviews, and i absolutely loved it. obviously. the wire is great. but now—into the garbage can it goes! finish this sentence: bedbugs pooped all over my nice hardcover edition of this book because…

1) bedbugs have zero taste.
2) bedbugs are assholes.
3) bedbugs are living creatures, and living creatures poop because—science.
4) and i’m just inferring here, but i’m pretty sure bedbugs are racist.

this is not a quiz—all of the above responses are correct. fuck you, bedbugs. fuck you the most.

also—insect poop is called “frass.”
consider yourself enlightened.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
