Unlikely Recycling: Book into Synthesizer

I don’t like to hear or read about people destroying books, which is one of the reasons why I strongly dislike a few scenes in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (Indy was in Berlin witnessing a Nazi book burning), but I guess there’s something to be said for destroying a book to turn it into a synthesizer.

I saw this when it first aired because back then I was a street rollerblader. I was also flabbergasted.

Here is the video from the 1999 X-Games when Tony Hawk first landed a 900.

Emily Gould Vs Cristina Nehring @ n+1

Emily Gould reviews Cristina Nehring’s A Vindication of Love: Reinventing Romance for the 21st Century [Harper, June 2009]. Nehring responds to the apparent vitriolic Gould.
