Among the hundreds of international antiques dealers (of which are 60 antiquarian book dealers) will be Lux Mentis, a rare books dealer who will have on hand "a range of material from Premiere posters for Pink Flamingos and Dangerous Living (the original Baltimore version, not the common general release), a set of photographs by Lawrence Irvine from the set/shooting of Pink Flamingos, original printed ephemera from PF (the 'Midnight' frontpage showing Divine voted 'Filthiest Person Alive')" among other John Waters related items.

Like this. But perhaps more specific.
All reviews will need to be approved by us before they'll be public, but that's just to weed out spammers and random potty mouthiness.
To get you into the mood we'll be giving away $25 in store credit for the "review of the week" and post it with our Friday Reviews on our blog. Be sure to sign your review!
Reviews need to be short and sweet, though. Sorry, we don't have room for manifestos.

Well, we had more people than we had anticipated at our Wholphin Screening! It was fun and we'll make it a regularly occuring event after we work some kinks out (the lights/power set up is strange in the new place and I'm sure once we actually have furniture the sound won't be as boomy).
Also next time, more vegetarian pizza.
For those of you who came and saw Josh Slates' latest (out now on DVD!), can you really get this song out of your head? I can't.

But when explaining/defending the greatness of comics, people often say strange things.
"[Terry] Moore told CBSNews.com, "This is a really great industry to find America's best short story writers right now because where else are you going to find them?"
Um...how about a bookstore? Just a thought. It's not like we're in a short story famine this year.
(via largehearted boy)
boingboing has some choice selections.
"people like you are scum, I hope you die by the hands of some sick perverted guy who will skullfuck you and then use your skin to make lampshades."
Jesus should have skipped the turning-the-other-cheek thing (since that didn't really take) and taught his followers something about having a sense of humor.
