The Lost Salt Atlas has been down for a while. I won’t go into the details, but a word to the wise: make sure you back up your websites and protect yourself from malicious code. In the coming weeks, I’ll be starting up this ol’ cabinet of curiosities once again and dishing up thoughts on books, music, art, cartography, lustworthy bikes, and other miniutae of earthshaking importance.

To all of you who linked to my posts in The Lost Salt Atlas or my previous blog, Only/OK, my apologies for the link rot. I still have the text of all those posts, and some of them will be making a reappearance here one day. But for now, we’re starting afresh. And who better to wake things up than Spoon… As the song says:

So I put down the poison pen
And it starts all over again
