It's on your side. You know as much as it to you reveals. It flies, is money, and waits for no man. And it's our Super-Special Topic for The High Hat No. 10: It's Time.

Yes, 10! Can you believe it? Ten issues of America's little webzine that could! And we want YOU to be a part of this Ultra-Special Issue.

Of course, if you're not interested in writing about our Extra-Special Topic (Had we but world enough and it...), we're also interested in your thoughts on movies, music, tv, books and arts, and life itself.

Please send your pitches to highhatsubmissionsATgmailDOTcom by April 30th. We're looking for finished articles by May 15 so we can go to press in June. It is of the essence, so be on it!

Ever yours,
The Editors
Looks like the book will be coming out in about six weeks. Hooray!

I've been trying to deal with time commitments, which have led to some harsh realities. First, I won't actually read 50 books this year, as promised on my other blog. Instead, I think I'll discuss some of the other 33 1/3 books I've read here, and I'll continue to talk about other books there. Is that clear? I have no idea.

I should say, too, that I think any book in the 33 1/3 series is worth the time to read it. Although the authors take a number of different approaches to their books, I think it's wrong to assume that your sense of aesthetics is such so that only a few of these approaches are worthwhile. So, I'm going to say what I like about the book and what the approach is. Maybe I'll mention why I like one book over another, but maybe not. These people are my colleagues, after all.
