There is no reason to work in a book store, if you can’t get cool stuff.

You know the display rack that holds those massive Complete Far Side collections? You know the one… the wire rack with a copy of the 400-lb book on top, opened like it was the Bible at the front of a church?

When they throw those things out, they sometimes find their way into the homes of geeky book store employees…

    and then the geeky bookstore employees sometimes scan all of the pages and put it on the internet to share with other geeks?

    Sooo off topic, but comments were closed on the new song you did. Great, great stuff!

    Now, remember, I want in on the CD when it goes into production!

    No, no, no… they don’t throw out bazillion dollar Gary Larson books! Just the display rack. 😉

    Throw those out? Unforgivable!
    Then again, if they do find their way into such a wonderful abode… bliss.

    Share a page, why don’t you.

    And, hey, whaddaya know…I have one of those massive 400-pound Far Side books that my mother gave me as a Christmas present in 2003 just begging for a dsiplay rack…

    I can’t believe they throw out those books! It’s a crime I tell ya! What about the starving children? What will they read?

    (hey, what can I say – it looks like a fun game of “drive solly nuts”)

    We have a discarded revolving wire paperback rack in the bathroom. I mean, in our library. Barnes and Noble was going all feng shui and decided the wire racks weren’t feng-y enough.

    Damn. Why didn’t I think of that when my local WaldenBooks stopped selling newspapers six or seven years ago? I coulda had those nifty lucite racks!

  11. wow, bummer. so, how’s Gary Larson taking it? not the book dumping–a travesty unto itself–but the fact that a cardboard reproduction of a piece of his soul now stands in your living room.

    I can’t wait to see a pair of those massive Barnes and Noble front doors show up on the free pile. If you see some, please let me know.

    I have always imagined that it would be wonderful to work in a bookstore that has no customers. Of course I do not imagine it would be good to own such a store, but beign paid to sit there and read and not have to deal with pesky customers. Please let me know if you hear of any such jobs. Does this make me a geek. Please say yes, I strive for geek status.
