If you’re like me, and you’re in your mid 30’s with no kids, the notion of reading or even relating to a children’s book seems a bit far fetched. But of course, you can vaguely conjure up the memory of settling in to a reading session with your mom or dad. Reading aloud with a loved one provides a very distinct emotion.

I experienced that emotion last night, as I read It’s Never Too Late aloud to my wife. Written and illustrated by Dallas Clayton, it’s a fantastic “kids” book aimed squarely at adults, reminding us that life is in fact precious and fleeting. I suspect children would enjoy this book as well, but I highly recommend you pick up a copy for the adult loved ones in your life.

As the title states, it’s never too late. Carpe diem.

Creating a Clamor Magazine Digital Archive

12:41 pm in art,community,faesthetic,life,web,zines dustin hostetler

There was a time when Toledo, Ohio (home of Faesthetic) was a hot bed of zine publishing. While now long gone, Clamor magazine was at the forefront of the publishing revolution. Filled with aggressive & forward thinking politics, it defined a generation’s belief system and helped many of us find our political voices. To this day, I credit Clamor with motivating me to publish Faesthetic on a regular basis. Clamor impacted many people’s lives. Hell, they were one of the first magazines to publish my illustrations.

Archives of the entire Clamor library are available for free online here. Now the publishers are back, and looking to make the entire archive more user friendly and searchable, and they need your help. Please consider supporting making Clamor more accessible for the next generation of zine publishers and political extremists. 😉

More info at Metafilter… 11 “shorts” are currently available on this youtube page. Some exist, individually as works of art. All are fantastic, and honestly… I can’t even believe I’ve spent the entire past hour watching Mickey Mouse cartoons. I’m in love.
