I love the explosion of social media and intuitive technology, but one consequential trend really gets my goat. Ever see those videos featuring tweens and teenagers speaking into a webcam about their lives, calling out “haters,” and showing off things they buy? Yeah. Not a high point in citizen media.
Somehow, though, this haul video from Maria Bamford isn’t irritating. The comedian went to Powell’s Books for her birthday – probably the best idea I’ve ever heard, considering their inventory – and she released a video showing what she bought. She has pretty solid taste in books, looks like! Homer’s The Odyssey? Sign me up.
Check out the video below and try not to be jealous of all the new books she got.
