And it's completely online (my kind of convenience). You can hear a lovely song in the intro video: Absolutely Nothing by Lilly Allen. Ooh, and she also has a zine called Page by Page.

- Confucius
This, and other sage advice about improving our relationship with the printed word can be found at this amazing blog: The Mental Fitness Center.
