bourgeois practices


Recommended Posts

Bourgeois practices? Other than exploiting the working class, no, I can't say that I have any.

 

 

 

Word, good call.

 

I have a first U.S. edition of one of my favorite books, Love in the Time of Cholera

 

Awesome!

 

I like to stalk the market prices and trends of first editions and signed copies of books that I find to be important. I guess that this is a hobby of sorts. This book that has changed my life: what is the market value of its first printing/edition? Who could have read this very copy? Regarding signed copies, especially of esoteric dead authors, I find few things cooler. What is the story behind this signed copy? Holy moly, this was _____'s copy?! Better yet, I like finding people who are selling journals that contain rare/important articles for super cheap. Especially when the extracted article itself might be a museum value piece... It is a fun hobby for sure...

 

Edit: Pseudonym pieces are dope too...

 

 

In other words, it would be nice to hear some good news from a program at this point...

I accidentally have some poetry books that are worth some money. I bought them, they went out of print, and now they're kind of rare. I try not to collect them intentionally--I already have an absurd book fetish (there are way too many books in our small apartment)... adding collectable books to that would be troublesome. Also, moving with all of these books is going to be annoying.

 

I did make this the other day: http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/flourless_lemon_almond_cake/

 

It tasted pretty bourgeois.

 

Did I mention I've also almost made it to the bottom of that hibiscus grapefruit gin? Yep.

Does anyone get offended on behalf of minorities in conversations with other white people?

 

Does anyone inordinately enjoy Portlandia?

 

Does anyone feel a smug sense of self-worth after finishing the most recent issue of the New Yorker?

Wait.  Waitwaitwait.  Hibiscus grapefruit gin?  Where do you purchase such a thing?

I was once a member of a secret society. Our mission, during our meetings, would be to sneak our way into prohibited super swank areas (club rooms of 5 star hotels or comparable places) in order to read out-loud and discuss our weekly selections. Staff would serve us drinks and complementary hor d'oeuvres...

No, but I used to have like every Gia Carangi Vogue ever because I found them for $2 each, but I sold all of them except the infamous Nov '80 track mark issue. That I still have and probably won't sell for a long time. Other than evidence of that particular moment in pop culture, I try not to own too many expensive things that I have to carry around when I move. For this reason, the best edition of a book is the cheapest edition!

I have an out of print copy of Butler's Survivor. Since it is out of print and she is dead, it is worth a decent amount of money. I probably wouldn't have been able to justify buying it if I hadn't found it for a couple of bucks in a used book store. They had no idea.
