A quick update for you about the status of the book: Over the past few weeks the editors at WSU Press have been pouring over the final manuscript and all the selected images/reprint articles. Right now, it looks like there will be no additional cuts to the book. So, what I have selected, at this point, will go to the proofreader, designer, and to you in the final edition. I expect to share details on it as we go.

If you filling out of the Orbit stuff survey, thank you! We are working on how to re-create many of these classic things for you over the coming year. In fact, I can tell you, Orbit t-shirts will be making a splash in about a month. Stay posted for more on that.

Mr. Vile Heads West!


“For something that looks this crappy, it’s a ton of work!” – Jerry Vile on ArtPrize 
ArtPrize is here. Well, actually, it’s in Grand Rapids. For the initiated, it is a city wide festival that allows artists of all types to share their work with the public in the hopes of scoring enough votes to get some serious prize money – well over $200,000.

Here are a few shots of Jerry’s concept.
