Yes, I agree with that appeal.  Glasgow Sunday's cover
could have been taken this year, or 1985 for all we
know.  (perhaps a clue could be taken from the cars on
the cover, but can you see them that clearly?)  The
same could be said of alot of the pictures.  Some of
course are more dated (like say, "Kingdom"), but that
timeless quality applies on a lot of them.  I also
enjoy looking through old encyclopedias and textbooks.

Do any *normal* people listen to Jandek?  ;)
