Thomas Blaine remembered the car accident that killed him—and then he woke up in the year 2110 in a white bed in a white room. Where bodies are sold to the highest bidder as new homes for the minds of the rich, who are greedy for more life when their own bodies wear out or are damaged. #capitalbooknook #robertsheckley #immortalityinc #freejack #futurama

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy #pdrr #alwaysontherun

Yesterday we got to meet up with @katb_bobby, the co-owner of @kittenandthebear to get feedback and advice on some future plans for us. A huge thank for being so generous with your time and experience Bobby!
We’ve had many amazing mentors, teachers, and advisors over the years that have been invaluable to our growth. There is an ever prevalent myth that businesses and personal projects are created in a isolated burst of creative genius. Nothing could be further from the truth. It takes a huge support system to get anything substantial off the ground.
This is one of the reasons we started our new video series helping you thrive as a freelancer. Check out the first episode via our bio link. We realize that not everyone can tap into a network of established freelancers or entrepreneurs to get feedback. Unfortunately, just this barrier prevents a lot of people from getting started. Well we’ll happily be your new freelance / business owner friends. 👋 Every Monday morning we will share tips, tactics, and tools to help you get started and grow as a freelancer! If you have any specific questions DM us or leave a comment on the latest video. And make sure you’re subscribed so you catch the next one! Watch via our bio link or at

“contributions from a diverse group of fifty artists, educators, sex workers, creatives, and activists exploring the political potential of sexiness. The work presented here references and complicates long-standing cultural associations with sexiness, including power, bodies, gender, and desire. At the same time, it introduces new and thought-provoking connections to sexiness, such as listening, healing, water, and being alone. Sexiness reads like a series of intimate conversations with bold, brave, and innovative individuals. Using multiple forms of print-based media, such as text and images, writing and handwriting, and poetry and portraits, Sexiness transforms sexiness from a monolithic and oppressive force into a potent site of possibility.” This book is truly beautiful both in content and print. 2 copies in stock, $40CAD available in store only.

Anti social social run. #alwaysontherun #pdrr #newfriends

Restock day! Perfect weather to read a book and drink a coffee (like every other day). #capitalbooknook

Join us tonight for our monthly social run where we run one distance, together at a moderate pace. 5k on the rail path followed by some grub at @electricmudbbqto.

I’m shy now apparently ✨🙈
