Teased three days ago. Things are falling through the cracks here due to IRL shit.

You think record execs are bad, publishers are much worse, kinda like movie executives on steroids, people who believe they’re better than us. And I’m not going to laud the uneducated, but the publishing world is everything I hate about New York, where your pedigree rules and it’s all about keeping everybody else down. Come on, have you seen Donald Trump’s act?
Books are so passe it’s laughable. And so many are written by graduates of writing workshops where the standard is unreadability. It’s like they pack their tomes with words you have to look up to make them feel better about themselves. Whereas the first criterion of a book is readability.
Boldfaced emphasis added by me.
Another opportunity for me to link to this: A Reader’s Manifesto.
It’s not you. It’s the book. That book you have to wrestle with is shit.
Back on the 17th, apparently. All the chaos surrounding me caused me to miss it.
This isn’t a device that interests me.
