Take One
Originally uploaded by mrbikferd.
THIS EVENING, Coulton and I will be visiting Brookline, Massachusetts, a non-fictional town where I grew up.

THIS WILL OCCUR at 7PM, at Brookline Booksmith, a fine book smithy where they not only offer books made of wrought iron, forged on anvils, but paper editions as well.

Brookline Booksmith
279 Harvard Street
Brookline, MA 02446


Meanwhile, THE ACCOMPANYING IMAGE is offered by Mr. Bikferd, who steadfastly refuses to adhere to the NO DIGITIAL MANIPULATION STIPULATION of the h-in-sunrays pool, and yet I have to forgive him, for once again he has peered directly into my brain and produced from it uncannily an image I never dared hope I would see.

THIS PROCESS, I am happy to report, WAS PAINLESS.

Tomorrow I will cease to reward the guilty and return to featuring, GRATEFULLY, analog world images from AROUND THE WORLD.

Until then: that is all.

Brookline is hardly non-fictional. I'd call it more of a "docudrama".

Not only did I ignore the "no digital manipulation" stipulation but according to this, I'm eight angled lines too short.

I promise to try harder in the future.

BTW, I am able to peer into your brain using my copy of the book. Maybe I somehow got the teachers' edition?

Bikferd -

I was so excited to see that you had pilfered from M, a Peter Lorre movie in German from the 30's or the 20's!

I was inordinately tickled!

I cannot believe Ann Coulton was willing to debate you. Are you going to talk about bulimia as a right-wing selling point?

I am planning to come to Cody's books on October 12th, but its website has conflicting information! While I completely trust your knowledge of the ENTIRE WORLD, as gas is expensive, can you confirm the precise location of the visitation?
