review by josh spilker

finished reading this book, a hardcover version from the library and turned it over, it said $25 or higher in Canada

was immediately like, ‘i would not pay $25 or higher for this book except in very few circumstances’

circumstances that came to mind include:

thoughts by josh spilker

seems like andrew sent me this book, then i read it over the course of a month or so

this book reminded me of guillaume’s ‘new tab’, adam wilson’s ‘flatscreen’ and the beginning of benjamin lytal’s ‘map of tulsa’

sam pink’s internet presence

thoughts by josh spilker

seems like i have read ‘several’ sam pink things and poems etc, rlly only remember ‘person’ some of ‘rontel’ and some of ‘no hellos diet’

'you can make anything sad' by spencer madsen // publishing genius, 2014

spencer’s internet presence

thoughts by josh spilker

seems like i remember watching spencer ride his book in a promo for ‘a million bears’ and the video got ‘RT’d’ by steve roggenbuck mebbe and i remember thinking ‘wonder if i can get a million bears for free’ and i think i did


pretty sure i read that but don’t remember too much abt it, felt generally ‘impressed’ by it and i think i ended up asking spencer abt where to print books in the pre-sorry house days

that was about 1 email i think


pretty sure ‘amb’ was poetry, but i don’t want to call YCMAS ‘poetry’ tho some have defined it that way, seems instead like ‘random access memories’

thoughts by josh spilker

seems like any1 who writes a longform fiction prose novel in this scene should automatically be in the ’90s’ or something but i’m not going to give this a score this time for reasons i dont want to get into (((AND FER REASONSS WE DON’T WANT 2 HEAR)))
