The Escapist - As BADD As It Gets

quote [ By sheer coincidence, I have that book as well (what can I say, I love to read paranoid manifestos!). I picked it up at a gun show, where one of the exhibitors was clearing out their collection of apocalyptic books. ]

For JWWargo. While cringeworthy, the reviewer suggests that the sad background behind these pamphlets seems to be the author trying to cope with their kid's death.

Brilliant Visions: Peyote among the Aesthetes

quote [ Used by the indigenous peoples of the Americas for millennia, it was only in the last decade of the 19th century that the powerful effects of mescaline began to be systematically explored by curious non-indigenous Americans and Europeans.

Stirred Not Shaken: How Do You End Up With 50,000 Swizzle Sticks?

quote [ Lots of people are swizzle-stick collectors but don?t even know it. The bulk of your collection is probably hiding in the back of your junk drawer, and you might find one or two more sticks jammed amid the dry felt-tip pens in that jelly jar on the credenza, next to the spot where your landline used to be. Not to put too fine a point on it, but inventorying your swizzle-stick collection could be as easy as tidying up a bit around the house. ]
