From two of our favorite people in the book world, Joshua Glenn and Seth (we're sure Mr. Kingwell is a wonderful fellow, as well; for a layabout, anyway). Who better to offer sage advice about post-hypercapitalist living than two lifelong experts on idling, goldbricking, scrounging, dawdling, quitting, napping, mooching, laying about, and dreaming? Get it here.

Also: Bagge's new pop band, the curiously named "Can You Imagine?" (pictured below) will be making its stage debut at the Sunset Tavern in Ballard this Sunday the 9th at 8pm (they currently aren't listed but Bagge assures us that they WILL be there as an opening act), and they'll also be playing at the Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery's Anniversary party on Dec. 13th (more on that later).
