Default beastie book (spoilers)

looks like some people on my ig feed have been getting their books today. the cover weíve seen since day one is the real cover (not sure what the strombo guy was talking about). looks big. if peoples are getting them please share info and whatnot.



Mail-order brides, no matter how sketchy they may seem, are a great way to find your true love and help sketchy characters into your country.

Posted this in the other thread:

If you go to the link on the back of the book from the video they have a post with the Ad-Rock's Danceteria playlist: https://fabersocial.co.uk/2018/10/11...eria-playlist/

Also, if you're a huge geek like me and just can't wait for the book, you can adjust the speed of the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2de-Gu0ekmg
by going into the playback settings. This slows the flipping of the pages and you can pause it to read the table of contents and a bit of the book too!

My only problem is going to be skipping to 2007 to start learning new things, and also reading about the final years. Iím sure the whole thing will be an interesting read with their inimitable style, though.

Sabotage as a traditional rap song was a decent wrinkle to a well-known yarn, to be fair.

A few more little snippets in the NY post: https://nypost.com/2018/10/21/the-be...-for-30-years/

For the record the Guardian / Observer excerpt posted above is fucking excellent.

Hard to complain with such a list that goes above and beyond but, in addition to Hurra, I find Mario Cís absence glaring.

Thanks for posting this, a great teaser. I'm freaking out this is going to be so awesome. Also pretty teary eyed listening to that. Can't wait for Tuesday, heading to Brooklyn from Toronto. Psyched!

Great to see that audiobook list of contributors.
Not sure why Amy poehler has been the headlining contributor when there are so many more relevant and appropriate contributors than her .

Im impatiently waiting for the KingsRoad merch official bboys store preorder to eventually come. I should have just walked in to a book store, I was hoping it would arrive the day the book came out. Also the book costs 32.00 on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, and the official store is 49.99, does that seem right?
