Fashionpolice rather horrifyingly points out that I told that same Rickson's story back in '03 (at least I was consistent). Also rather horrifying is the photo of LeitzNoctilux playing gleefully with olive oil while wearing his Buzz Rickson's PR MA-1. Olive oil and black nylon sateen, sir, are a potentially disastrous combination!
Someone else urges me to shut up and get back to work. Which I will now do, though not before pointing out Gil Williamson's very own F:F:F site, which I've only just discovered. Sort of like a Borges story, for me, but turned inside out... Thanks, Gil!
[Speaking of Borges, here's my totally atemporal reading suggestion for the new year: JLB's Selected Non-Fictions, as edited by Eliot Weinberger for the 1999 Viking edition. Not only can you find things here like Borges' review of the original King Kong, but you can also savor him flipping off Argentina's many Hitler fans, in essays like the exquisite "I, A Jew". When Viking mailed out promotional copies of their great three-volume JLB set, they included one of my favorite bumper-stickers of all time: "HONK IF YOU LOVE BORGES". And I do, I always do.]
