Unfortunately, no, there are no preview pages for the book. There is some promotional flash work on his site's main page.

A sort of funny thing hit me durring the film though. Something about the combination of the Douglas Adams' humor and the use of puppets in this movie made me feel like I was watching an older movie! Like from the 80's or something, but with better graphics. Ha ha, that's not a judgement one way or...

Speaking of collaborations with Tom Waits... I heard somewhere that the Pixies are going to be working on a new album (or maybe are already wroking on it?) and that they want Tom Waits to produce. Anyone know if this is true or not? Don't know about Tom Waits producing, but MOJO magazine announced ...

I think Sufjan may just score himself another critically acclaimed, album of the year.

Jen,
I can't thank you enough for hooking me up with this. I am absolutely entranced by it. To say more wouldn't do this album justice. I may sound cheesy, but I mean it. This is some of the best stuff I've heard in a long time.

May 27 and 28. I am there. Thanks alot, Willis. Helping out fellow BTS fans is a pleasure. What do they sound like? I could be totally off, but almost a mixture of Pavement and Dinosaur Jr. Great melodic pop sensibility, while throwing song structure out the window in favor of some of the most insp...

Does Sufjan play shows solo, or have some additional musicians?

Also, how does this album compare to Seven Swans and Michigan?

I had fun. Great production design and it was nice to finally see puppets instead of CGI characters. Henson did the puppets and they're fantastic. The special effects add to the movie, as opposed to detracting from it. The plot is pretty solid and it was refreshing to see some dry, nonsensical humor...

Doug brought act 2 of EBJ with him when he lectured at my college. You guys don't even know what's in store for you. When Doug said this was an epic, he wasn't kidding. I read about half of act 2 and started to feel tired, possibly because I'd only had five hours of sleep, but more likely because it...

Congrats! I loved last year's Xeric winner, Tiempos Finales by Sam Hiti. I'm trusting that Xeric is keeping up the quality. Will you be at the San Diego Con?
