A short list of things I have bitched about today, a list by someone who is apparently cranky

  1. Book publishers’ such awful, ugly, and unhelpful Web sites. An animated gif as your logo? REALLY?
  2. Literary Magazines’ equally ugly Web sites.
  3. How I often put my lunch in the oven and then promptly forget about until I can smell it burning.
  4. Why iTunes insists on playing the Indigo Girls on shuffle when I do not want to listen to the Indigo Girls
  5. How the Strib and the PiPress have Web sites that are virtually unusable. I am boycotting the shitty, shitty Strib because they have some ad that hijacks your browser, minimizes the window, and redirects you to some sort of anti-virus ad/site/thing. Fuckers.

    We’re getting a new website, thanks. What can I help you with? 😉

    Graywolf was helpful (I was looking for Dobby Gibson who will be on MN Reads on Tuesday), but that animated gif? Oof.

    It was Random House that was not helpful. All of them are not so good. I just don’t get it. It’s like some sort of literary plague of bad taste and poor design.
