Thoughts on last night's BookThug launch:

I was struck by how Rob Read injected the human back into his treated spam (or at least emphasized what's already there) through his declamatory reading style (complete with fake accents). On the other hand, maybe this reading style is actually a prime example of the human robotic. Oh, I think I get it.

I liked it best when Stu and Morten S√łndergaard read S√łndergaard's original Danish and the English translation simultaneously. Why isn't this the standard way to read translated material? I think it worked extremely well.
