Babylon, St Mark’s Place, 1972

if this photo of the payhone scene doesn’t tickle your-nostalgia-funny-bone in the best way…then you need to check into the lightenup-rehab (they have that now—for people who’ve lost their sense-of-humor & appreciation for stupid meaningless funny bullshite like this, because really: how many more cokeheads & sex-addicts are left to treat at this decade?

The Decline and Fall of the Book Cover

newyorker:

             

Tim Kreider on the decline and fall of the book cover: http://nyr.kr/12Ee5Wy

“Soon enough, book covers, like album covers before them—like albums themselves, or sheet music for popular songs, or dance cards—will be a quaint, old-timey thing you have to explain to the uninterested young, and there’ll be one fewer excuse to strike up conversations with pretty strangers on the subway.”

Illustration by Laurent Cilluffo.

…and there’ll be one fewer excuse to strike up conversations with pretty strangers on the subway.
That’s a shame. I hate to think of a place with no time for schlepping—no carrying of favorite books or albums, a world without the cover of ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ or ‘Sgt. Pepper’.
