"You Are What You Know"

Loompanics - one of my favourite sources of high weirdness - is going out of business. This means that the "Great Loompanics One and Only Going-Out-Of-Business Sale" is on right now and all books are half-price!

Since the age of 16 I've found my way in the world thanks, in no small part, to some brilliant books from the likes of RE/Search, Semiotext(e), Autonomedia, AK Press, and of course, Loompanics. It's sad to see them go.

This saddens me... Loompanics printed the classic yellow cover editions of The Principia Discordia. I owned a copy, but it was stolen in Barcelona when the car I was travelling with was broken into. I wonder if there's any hope of getting a replacement before they close their doors...

Thanks for the heads up!

Yeah, this is really sad news, but the owner seems to be taking it well. When I was a teenager and at university Loompanics and AK Press were my heroes.
