There’s a new review of CIRCUS+THE SKIN up this week at @entropymagazine , written by the generous and incomparable Ben Segal. I grabbed some of the best (and most Instagrammable) bits, but I highly recommend checking out the whole thing because it’s lovely and good.

Look, I know I've said it before about other things, and each time I say it the power of the phrase is diminished, but Leigh Alexander's Monitor is dark as fuck.

Oookay. So I read this book because Garden said she wanted to talk about it and I found the 3-volume set at Comic-Con for half price, and there you are.

“The world is my idea; as such I present it to you. I have my own set of weights and measures and my own table for computing values. You are privileged to have yours.”
Charles G. Finney, The Circus of Dr. Lao

“...it obeys none of the natural laws of hereditary and environmental change, pays no attention to the survival of the fittest, positively sneers at any attempt on the part of man to work out a rational life cycle, is possibly immortal, unquestionably immoral, evidences anabolism but not katabolism, ruts, spawns, and breeds but does not reproduce, lays no eggs, builds no nests, seeks but does not find, wanders but does not rest.”

Joe R. Lansdale
“I thanked him and he asked me if my cape got caught on stuff when I was running and jumping, and I said, "Sometimes.”
Joe R. Lansdale

“All I'm trying to say is that if you're not willing to observe this, if you're just going to condemn it, you're never going to see it. It's there, whether you like it or not. This is stupid life-force we're dealing with here," he said. "Think how old it is, Jim. Think how huge it is. Understanding it doesn't make any difference.”
Jim Paul, Catapult: Harry and I Build a Siege Weapon

Bertrand Russell
“There are two motives for reading a book; one, that you enjoy it; the other, that you can boast about it.”
