If you work at the NYT and are reading this, the below is a complicated satire involving Rimbaud and Italo Calvino

Bookslut is about to dump links from the NYT if they begin charging for archives. Does anyone know if that loophole about hitting “print version” to maintain a free link forever still exists?

  1. Do you mean Rimbaud? Am I missing something?

  2. I would LIKE to say you were and invent some delightful pun on the spot, but all I was missing was my morning cup of coffee and a brain.

  3. Thankfully, no one really reads this site.

  4. No! Not true! Don’t sell your early-morning-typo-making self short.

  5. Change it all to second-person, add the first lines of your last twelve posts, and you too can be a groundbreaking Italian postmodern novelist.

  6. Silly Rabbit. If you know this site at all — AND I THINK YOU DO — you know that plan cannot be put into place until I have first earned the title “Finesse Operator Lawyer.”

  7. Old Hag is nothing but a finesse operator lawyer, and don’t let anybody tell you different.

  8. Strangely enough, the Amazon links over there still hold. Go figure.

    Paid archives are as much of an annoyance as registration. But this is damn silly. I mean, even James Wood needs to eat.
