bookshelves: to-read

Features Little America, Wisconsin. I still have a card I picked up at a hotel there (2002); featuring a penguin pointing to phone numbers for road conditions, highway patrol, the sheriff in Green River, the hospital and the Little America fax machine. One fax town. Yes. I-80 Exit 68. See ya, there mutants!

R. It really evokes the barren interior landscape of amnesia. The constant barrage of the moon. The lunar surface insists itself into the consciousness of even the most, ah, innocent. New to the world. The moon is, perhaps, the ninth wonder of our world.

R. There's a moon
in the sky.
It's called the moon.
And everybody
is there. - Fred Schneider.

R. we seem to float by yesterday's child, the new you, the land time forgot and the horse with no mane...

Matt Re: the card - just the fact that it depicted a penguin is awesome, but if they really wanted to take it up a notch the penguin should have been wearing one of those foam cheese hats...
