A Quarterly for Folks Who Know That "Two Bits" is a Quarter
WHEN "ROCK AND ROLL" REFERRED TO SISYPHUS
Apologies for the delay in shipment of our latest Rivendell Reader. As you might have heard, we have decided to forgo computers and other modern print technology (apologies to technophiles). We have decided that the experience of writing should not be diluted by such instruments.
So, all of our writing shall now be by quill and ink (apologies to birds and squids). If that should prove to be unsatisfactory, we are prepared to "publish" the Reader on various cave walls using local clays for paint. In a similar fashion, we have chosen to have copies of the Reader printed not by modern copiers or presses but by Franciscan monks (apologies to Johannes Gutenberg).
Also, all illustrations in the Reader are now done by JoJo, a chimpanzee in the Oakland Zoo who flings her poop at a blank canvas.
