The New iPhone is Here!

New technologies are a common theme here at Bibliowhining. I'm not anti-technology, but I like to question things. For example, why does my tape Walkman from the early 90s still function while these new phones and MP3 players and such break after fewer than five years? Why are so many people okay with that, rewarding shoddy craftsmanship with repeat purchases from the same company? And why is manufacturing and throwing away plastic products year after year considered more "green" than a book or record album that you'd keep forever, sell or give away to a friend? Why do we buy things we don't need with money we don't have to impress people we don't like? Anyway, here's a quick comic about the new iPhones.

Thanks for tuning in to Bibliowhining! In the next and final installment, Mediocre Narcotica will fast forward 30 years to 2012, where they will witness some of their aging punk heroes on stage. Will it be disillusioning or as inspirational as it was in the 80s? Join us next time to find out.

What Chrissy is Doing

I've been writing for some other sites, so if you like my style you may enjoy checking them out.

Here's my profile page for Stereo Subversion, a music review site. I recently had my first album review published there (Lightning Love's Blonde Album) and will be writing more for them in the future.

I wrote a few satire articles for Campus Basement (nee 'Cuse My Campus) in graduate school, but some current events lend themselves well to satire. Here's an article I wrote about the NYC soda ban, and here's my profile page with links to all the articles I wrote for the site.

I've been making sketch cards for Monsterwax, a neat trading card company that makes non-sports card sets, usually with a horror theme.

A free original art card comes in each box of Spook Show cards, and I also sell some of the originals. Contact me if you'd like to buy one. Here are some of the cards I've done so far:

There are more cards on my Monsterwax artist page. I'll be promoting the cards at the upcoming Philly Non-Sports-Card Show in Allentown (not Philly) on October 20-21. That's all for now, friends! Thanks for reading Bibliowhining. And don't forget, you can follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest updates!
