remember the alamo

I just learned that the Costa Mesa branch of Book Soup is closing. This independent LA-area bookstore is the beacon of light and authenticity in the consumeristic darkness that is South Coast Plaza. It's the only store worth visiting in the mall (besides the international news stand above Sears).

I've spent many lunch hours browsing their unique and eclectic selection. I mean, what other bookstore stocks their porno on the bottom shelf of the magazine rack?! It will be missed, indeed.

I wondered why their shelves were so empty today. Then the clerk confirmed my worst fears - they were going out of business and would be most likely colonized by Gucci or Hermes. The Bluths Segerstroms must have upped the rent to pay for their new concert hall or something...

Well, on the bright side, many of their books are on sale.


I guess you could say this is the "Original Pime". I stopped blogging here regularly in May 2008 (if you don't count the B-Sides diversion - yes it gets confusing) when I joined the Tumblr revolution. Going forward bravely into 2009, this site will serve to house any large image work I produce.

Peace out.
