Aj Michel’s (usually annual) complication of what she has read/watched is something I always look forward to. Our tastes, while not exact, are often similar. I always enjoy reading her take on books, comics, movies, music, or zines I have also read. Better yet, she has turned me onto new things and this issue was no exception. In fact, I was in line at the post office to pick up some stamps after I got my mail and I read her review of Feed. It was about zombies and she noted it as “Book of the year.” That was all it took to send me to the bookstore that week. I also love that she not only admits to watching TV, she rates a fare number of shows.
I was pleasantly surprised to find SYNDICATE CONSUMPTION 18.1 in my mailbox this spring. She has moved to a quarterly schedule for 2011, which means I won’t have to wait all year to find new, cool stuff to consume. (Posted on 8/12/12)
