Pee-Wee

He's making a comeback. I'm glad I'm a kid of the 90s. The 00s were kind of useless in terms of kid-aimed culture. I remember when Pee-Wee's Big Adventure would play on Disney Channel. Happy days gone by.

I read a great piece about Andy Warhol in The New Yorker. Andy is a genuine wonder.

A person is a fool to become a writer. His only compensation is absolute freedom.

Books

Dear bin of books, I must leave you behind as I return to school after a lengthy and lazy break. It is a dreaded return that I would rather ignore, but my parents insist that it is inevitable.
