The hysterical five-dollar bill
J. D. Daniels has an excellent essay about Philip K. Dick up at Kitchen Sink Magazine. Just go and read it, it's pretty indescribable, but I think this is my favorite bit: "What's the matter with garbage? I would rather re-read The Essential Captain America Vols. 1 & 2 than the collected works of haut-garbage comic-fanboys Jonathan Lethem and Michael Chabon, for the simple reason that I prefer to drink my toilet water straight from the toilet." I don't think I agree with the sentiment, in fact I definitely don't, but I like that last part of the sentence, it's unexpected and rather brilliant!
