From the Quarterly

The God of Things as They Aren’t

The grotesque humor of Ralph Eugene Meatyard’s photography.

Cool as in Cold-Press

We sold ten-dollar juice to people who say, “fuck the rules” while, simultaneously, making the rules.

Portraits, Ghosts, and Winters

Though there are days when I can see snow on the peaks of the San Gabriel mountains, the only other way I know how to have a feeling of winter is to see an image of it in a painting or movie, or to read it, and sometimes to write it. I admit that I write and read partly for escape, or maybe to travel is a better way to say it.

We are caught in a loop, and the museum, tasked with preserving history, is instead watching while history leaks and circles around maddeningly.

Fear Won

An introduction to the new issue of the Full Stop Quarterly.

What Machines Know: Surveillance Anxiety and Digitizing the World

Is the bossless office egalitarian, or does it simply camouflage inequalities and portend the further erosion of organized labor?

The Hostage Situation

Bossnappings are a symbolically potent tactic in the arsenal of labor militancy, especially now that workers are increasingly required to identify with their management.

Steven Dunn

Like Nas captured the energy of his New York, I wanted to capture the energy of my West Virginia.
