Happier posts

From the new Royal Books catalogue:

Portis, Charles. The Dog of the South (First Edition, Inscribed by Eudora Welty). NY: Knopf, 1979. First Edition. Hardcover. First Edition, Fine in a Fine dust jacket. SIGNED and inscribed by Eudora Welty to two friends, thus: "For --- and --- / with love / and with my thanks for so much, / Eudora / Chicago, April 17, 1980." A very nice secondary association, and an interesting connection between two important southern authors of different generations.
[Book #80736] Price: $650.00

From the Sylvester Stallone Q&A:

What do you consider your worst film? Rhinestone or Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot?
—Eric P.

The worst film I’ve ever made by far… maybe one of the worst films in the entire solar system, including alien productions we’ve never seen… a flatworm could write a better script then STOP! OR MY MOM WILL SHOOT. In some countries – China, I believe – running STOP! OR MY MOM WILL SHOOT once a week on government television has lowered the birth rate to zero. If they ran it twice a week, I believe in twenty years China would be extinct. Does that put it in perspective, Eric P.?
