|~The encyclopedia of life.

|~The Book-as-art all-stars.

|~First time novelist Carlos Amato on Oprah:

“Oprah is one of the most vicious, pernicious influences on the modern world. She’s injecting a psychosis into Western culture. There is no scale of moral weight behind what she does: one day she’ll be in Auschwitz, saying, ‘That’s the most terrible thing I’ve ever seen,’ and the next day she’ll be with a divorced mother in Idaho whose husband gave her a smack, saying: ‘That is the most terrible thing I’ve ever seen.’

And the next day she’s handing out Cadillacs to her gals, because she just wants to. Everything becomes just as important as everything else: it’s the ultimate post-modern revenge. Oprah terrifies the crap out of me.”

|~The theory of interstellar trade.
