Do you remember 1995? I do and I'm grateful to my friend 'B' for reminding me. She sent me this wonderful guidebook to mutant culture circa 1995 and it really stirs the memory...my memories of 1995 are blurry but upbeat, I was only 29 and life was good. Leafing through this book reminds me that if life was good, then it can be good again.
Don't these look like sidebar labels? Back in 1995 we called them "stickers".
The book contains a how-to for email ID theft circa 1995 and an article that warns that the growth of cyberspace was bringing a "vast array of jerks, idiots and nincompoops" and advises the reader to be wary of "drooling perverts who try to virtually molest Net-surfing teenagers".
Well, I need to sort out my old Magic: the Gathering cards. Seriously. I'd forgotten that I have a small fortune in them. Another friend (name also starts with B) reminded me- he sold his for $500. I used to deal Magic- I should be able to clear my rent, easy. Why didn't I think of that before? And my comic collection...holy shit.
That will be my project for early 2008, circumstance permitting: Sort the comics.
My project for 2007 is to get postmarks on some books. See ya at the Post Office!
