For the better part of a decade, Anita Dalton’s “Odd Things Considered” website has served as a unique outpost where myriad odd notions and odd creations — but mostly stacks upon stacks of odd books — are not merely considered, but treated with a kind of earnest attention that’s rarely encountered in contemporary cultural discourse. This massive anthology collects the most memorable and provocative examples of Dalton’s conversationally-intoned counter-criticism, with insightful discussions of overlooked literature, anthropodermic bibliopegy, serial killer memoirs, outsider manifestos, and conspiracy theories (among many other outré subjects) converging to illuminate a vast and volatile pyscho-literary topography that has been ignored or deplored (but seldom explored) by our reigning arbiters of taste and culture.
When you’re ready to put down that Jonathan Franzen doorstop, consider picking up a copy of Anita Dalton’s TL;DR — The Best of Odd Things Considered. You’ll see what you’ve been missing.
Good evening, Boils and Ghouls!
Or morning, depending on when you read this.
I think it’s safe to admit, three years later, that I ghosted (Boo! Did I scare you?) a four-pager Spongebob Squarepants Halloween comic story adventure.Yeah, I know, only three pages are here, but I lost the last one, and besides, you should travel back in time and buy this one. Support the arts, cheapskate.
Basically, what I did, which admittedly, wasn’t much, was thumbnail the layouts and the far superior in every way, Stephen DeStefano made it look beautiful. It truly was a honor to work with him. I’m still up for working without credit, dudes. Hook me up…and SATAN!
October is Halloween Awareness Month. Tell your pit bull.
Now you know what you are doing Sept. 19th.
More to come from Monster Lou…
Scope a peek at this t-shirt I’m workin’ on.
Thanks, Allen Mueller!
I think the title says it all.
This is a good of a way as any to commemorate a trip to Switzerland.
I think this is as good as any, way to memorialize a family trip.
I’m telling you. Allen is gonna have his own wing in lattaland.
I draw nice things sometimes.
My pal Allen is becoming my patron. Thanks for the fun commission, dude!
