Looks Like Chicken John Has a New Book Coming Out

Everyone's favorite Mission District activist is apparently a new author, as he informed everyone in today's newsletter:

The Book of the Is arrived. I can't even fit them in the back of my truck, there are so many of them. 2,500 copies… 3 giant pallets.

The official release date is September 15th. It's a handsome book, if I might say so myself. Hardcover. Full color every page. Neat.

There are so many people to thank and this has been such a process… but I have authered my first book and I am slightly beaming with pride.

220 pages of lies a propaganda. 60,000 words. 11 chapters. 247 photographs. One idea: no consequences.

One thing of interest is NYC-based street artist Swoon (a favorite of mine, you can still see her work on 24th and Hampshire) is doing a limited edition jacket for the book.  No word where you can buy this read, but I'm sure you'll be able to find it in local stores come September.

220 pages of internet blog posts. 10,000 repetitions of “All work and no play makes John a dull boy.” 11 square icons denoting the end of each section. 247 flickr images. One idea: I am trolling Chicken John

“There are so many people to thank and this has been such a process… but I have authered[sic] my first book and I am slightly beaming with pride.” — To use Brother Boy’s expression: O -kaaaaay······

Who is the greater fool, the fool or the fool that follows him?

He is an illiterate bully. Hope they all burn in a fire , preferably at Shitual
 Roasters!

Jesus Christ you people are mean. I’m a human being. With feelings. If you guys don’t start being nicer to me, I’m gonna move back to New Jersey and get my old job back at the shoe store.

I wrote a book about living your life as art. About failing to get what you want. I wrote a book and you didn’t so suck it, chump.

You will not be buying this book in stores. And you are gonna spit your beer out when you find out how much I’m charging for them….

kisses, chicken
