Last October I told you about the unpublished chapter of Charlie & The Chocolate Factory. But I think this tops it. Uncovered at this link are the “under-published” works of Jerome David Salinger. This collection consists mostly of out-of-print short stories. Salinger has deliberately kept most of these works out-of-print or off the market, so it should be said, the above linked website not only infringes on Salinger’s copyrights, it also makes certain material obtainable against Salinger’s will. But Iâ€™m not going to feel shamed for sharing the link, because some of it is fucking beautiful.

Broken Picture Icon
No, That isn’t an error. It is supposed to be like that. Why would I post a broken link icon at the top of this entry? Did it trick you? It’s funny how common, everyday symbols can do our thinking for us – sending our minds onto some type of auto pilot. Is there a term for that? Yesterday I was surfing the net and came across this picture on the woostercollective and thought, “Wow. How fun. Where can I get me some of those stickers?” The website had very little information (who is Niko and Andrea?) So I decided to make some for myself. Then I though it would be fun to make them available to others in the Artifacting Store. My first one went on the upper right hand corner of the whiteboard in my office. Where is yours going?
While fiddling around, I also thought that the icon could look cool on a plain white envelope so I drew up some stamps with the broken image icon on it as well.
Anyway I hope some others can have some fun with these stickers, I’d be interested in finding out creative ideas others have used them for.
