Iain Sinclair

Incomprehensible hack or literary genius?
Discuss.

His writing in Downriver is so self-absorbed that borders on repulsive. His characters lack motivation. The syntax is at times unbearable.
I can't help comparing the book to London Fields (in fact he refers to Amis as a contemporary in his forword), and Sinclair just doesn't stack up to Amis in any way, shape, or form, so to speak.

Chub

Going to get the Chub working soon! I think the QR Chub was some kind of hack; the Chub people had no idea what I was talking about when I told them I had one of their hubs with a quick release skewer.

Dear Intarwebs...

How long is film usable after it expires? Specifically 120 Kodak 400UC.
Thanks, you're the best,

Remember being disappointed that El Diablo didn't draw a devil in your crema or whatever? Well this is what I got at Zoka last night. I was impressed.

Rob, the crumpet shop guy (the owner's son?), is in a hip hop group. They were on the radio, and I think he swore in the song they played.

new mouse

After a 3-week backorder, I finally received my Logitech MX Revolution mouse at work. My hand is so happy right now, it's practically speechless.
The free-spinning mouse wheel is sheer genius.

I missed Cradle of Filth at the Showbox last night. As you might suspect, I'm deeply saddened by this.
