Recommended Reading: Remembering Barney Rosset
I was fortunate to work with Barney on a revival of Evergreen Review, a collaboration that provided a decent final chapter for the magazine that originally premiered the work of Samuel Beckett and Allen Ginsberg. Read more.
Recommended Listening: SPREE: An Escape From Reality
Fun four-sided LP, from the Bush era. A listener favorite. Deals comically with the madness of living in America during one of the worst political eras of its history. Also has bean bag jokes. Free Music Archive | Internet Archive

Comics with Problems #64:
THE TANTRUMS OF LIL' BESS

Very weird batch of comics here, a complete set of mail-order religious comics from 1945. Emphasis of these is on physically disciplining the star of the series, Lil Bess - who we get to watch grow from infancy to the age of five, one pamphlet for each year alive. There's a lot that should be of interest to those of you interested in religious messages, but the comic will also appeal to others for its crazy drawing style that recalls Justin Green's Binky Brown.
