it was amazing

Think Tank For Human Beings In General seems like a high quality creation to me. I would heavily suggest this book to people who like internet literature and really anyone else. Easy to read !

Jordan's choice to end his collection with a poem that has the words "calm" and "steady" made me feel glad after a series of poems that made me feel like helping him was an urgent matter. I have caught myself thinking about his line about clouds in Animal Lamp Sorrow several times, which is cool. Really liked his section, laughed out loud once at the reading i think and felt like it was interpreted as inappropriate, but laughed out loud a lot more when I read it on my own.

I like how the chapbook is split perfectly in half, and the crease is on Richard's name page. This is convenient. When i unfocus my eyes all of Richards poems look neat. I like his references to matryoshka dolls, Otto Orph and Huntington Online banking. Richards section was also comical, but had a good amount of seriousness.

The quality of paper in the chapbook is nice. Doesn' t seem like a zine. I think the picture of the two of them on the author-bio page improved my opinion about the actual book. They seem approachable.
