The defective yeti isn't fond of Culture Jam. I read it a year or so ago and joined Adbusters as a result. I liked the book, but more importantly, I liked the message. It resonated with me. A lot. Yes, there were things about the book that bugged me, but I overlooked that in light of the more important messages it contained.

If you haven't read Culture Jam, please do. It's worth reading even if you end up disagreeing with everything it says. You should also read Fast Food Nation as well.

One of these days, I'm gonna put a books category on my blog. But today is not that day. Neither will tomorrow be. Another book looms on the horizon. In fact, I need to update the crappy ass poor excuse for a web site I've got there. Perhaps I should make it more weblog-like. Maybe I'll use MovableType and spruce it up.

Yeah. Anyone want an RSS feed for progress updates on my book? Well, anyone other than my editor, that is?

Oh, you might be asking yourself why I work for a big media company if I'm a culture jamming fan. Well, I'll answer that later.

What about "No Logo"? Have you read that?
