Miranda July (Me and You and Everyone We Know filmmaker) has 3 handmade posters that are up for auction on Ebay. There's an apology, congratulations, and this invitation. People seem to like the apology (now at $730). I like the invitation (at $315). These are on auction for McSweeney's. They lost over $100,000 because their distributor filed for bankruptcy (the story). If you've got $2000, you can get a personal tour of The Daily Show. Here's the full auction list. Hurry...they start ending today at 12:17PDT.
McSweeney's is responsible for so much goodness, including:
McSweeney's Quarterly Concern (for the reader)
The Believer (magazine for the reader with a slightly shorter attention span)
and Wholphin (dvd of shorts and docs for those who don't want to read)
For their sale, the subscriptions are $5 off, new books are 30% off, and the real deal...half of back issues. Go to their store and lend a hand.
