For those keeping track of this nonsense, here's some of the stuff I bought during my recent consumer spree (final tally: nine dead, seventeen injured, and a brand-new hat for young Gilligan):

- National Lampoon's 1964 High School Yearbook, 39th Reunion Edition
- Black Tents of Arabia, Carl R. Raswan
- Buffy the Chump-Sucker Season 6 on DVD
- Seaguy issues #1 & 2
- Sociolinguistics, R.A. Hudson
- True Believers: The Tragic Inner Life of Sports Fans, Joe Queenan
- Blood Simple on DVD
- The Chronicles of Conan Vol. 2: Rogues in the House, Roy Thomas & Barry Windsor-Smith
- Kyle Baker: Cartoonist, Kyle Baker
- Alias Vol. 2: Come Home, Brian Michael Bendis & Michael Gaydos
- The Ninth Configuration on DVD
- McSweeney's #13 (the comics issue)
- Pocket Universe: The Collected Rare Bit Fiend Vol. 2, Rick Veitch

- The Unvanquished by William Faulkner & Eclipse by John Banville
- The Incredible Hulk Vol. 1, The Avengers Vol. 1 & The Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 3, Stan Lee & Jack Kirby (all part of the Marvel Masterworks series for evil fuckers like me who shell out money to sinister corporate juggernaut Barnes & Noble so we can get reprints of old comics cheap (unlike the fifty-dollar DC reprint books) and on good-quality color paper (unlike the crappy black-and-white Marvel Essentials series)

Of course, I spent all my money on this stuff instead of getting that heart surgery I need, so I'll be dead in six seconds, but what are you gonna do.
