the title is LITERALLY "Japanese Bookbinding"
i get that east asian bookbinding isnt like. a commercially common option, but its not like its THAT hard to do with machines. sewing machines exist already. failing that... shrink wrap a stack of pages and make the customer bind it themselves. its not like they dont know how.
what the fuck, why is a book about japanese bookbinding NOT bound with japanese bookbinding techniques
i dont have friends i can talk to face-to-face. i dont have anyone i can get a hug from. i feel guilty for going and seeking these things out because im in a ldr and i know i want more than just a hug.
i havent had a friend to talk to in real life since last year. i havent had more than one friend at once since junior year of high school, which is when my HPD fucked me over and alienated all my friends.
im alone and i hate it and i want to be loved
do not reply with "hugs" or some variation thereof.
@KittyUnpretty Absent any correction from yourself, I am going to assume that Clark Kent's antifreeze of choice is the classic Ethylene Glycol, known for being very sweet, and probably eerily reminiscent of that super-sweet strawberry soda from Christmas In Kansas.
(Feel free to steal this, lord knows I've stolen a few of your ideas for a fic I'm working on.)
Alright, book recommendation time:
If you like planetary romances(think John Carter of Mars(think "man with sword on Mars with aliens and crystal tech")), then you'll probably enjoy Black Amazon of Mars. You'll probably enjoy it even if you're indifferent, as I am and did. It's good and despite being written in the 1930s does NOT consist entirely of bloated prose.
It can be read here: http://www.feedbooks.com/book/4844/black-amazon-of-mars
I printed it out and bound it in the traditional Japanese method because it was easier that way.
@ everyone who commented with good and valid responses: I'm sorry but I instead chose to print and bind Black Amazon Of Mars by Leigh Brackett. I have no clue if it's going to be any good but fuck it, I'm about to find out.
Does anyone have any suggestions for public domain books that I should print out and hand-bind? I'm really into bookbinding at the moment and I WANT to bind an actual book, but I have no idea what book to try binding.

why are there so fucking many bad superhero comics from the two major publishers
theyve been in business nearly a hundred years and they still cant do basic fucking quality control?
sturgeon's law is meant to apply to a genre as a whole, not a particular publisher's output.
talking about porn, asking for writing advice Show more
I've been thinking about trying my hand at writing a porn novella, but to be honest I'm not real sure on how to structure it. Anyone got any advice or links to articles, or hell, even a bookmarked formula somewhere?
I'm devising my own goddamn library organization system because I'm just that much of a nerd, apparently. Also my library needs are wildly divergent from most existing standards and if I want one I basically have to make one myself, but that's beside the point.
This was about DC's "New Gods" which I don't know anything about and refuse to look up on the wiki.
The experience of explaining comics to your friends who don't read comics, distilled into two words:
how has it taken me this long to realize that @KittyUnpretty is on this instance
also, hi, i really like your batman stuff, especially the post about water bottles and bruce's ridiculous bat-shaped canteen. please recommend batman comics at me, trying to get started with the comic books is an impenetrable mess

My least favorite thing about D&D is the fact that it's convinced the vast majority of people in our society that the only way to do collaborative storytelling is within the framework of a very specialized board game that does one specific thing very well and everything else quite poorly.
You don't HAVE to play a game in order to tell a story with your friends. You don't need dice and rules. You just need friends, some ideas, and a cooperative mindset.
anyone got any good resources on raising pigeons as livestock?
