Giveaway - Street Boners - Gavin McInnes


I love books like this - collections of postcards, pictures or peccadilloes. In this case it's fashion faux pas.

Subtitled: 1,764 Hipster Fashion Jokes

From the publisher:

"Fifteen years after founding Vice, Gavin McInnes has poured his creative juices into a new endeavor: StreetCarnage.com. Growing in size and influence at an alarming rate, the site's main feature is the new and improved version of Gavin's "DOs and DON'Ts," now tantalizingly called Street Boners.

These Boners have been polished and compounded into a book that takes the best of the site and adds hundreds more gems! With 1,312 photos, hilarious captions, and a harsh new rating system-from one to 10 kitten faces-STREET BONERS makes sure no glorious fashion statement goes unnoticed. Innocent citizens are either damned to hell or relentlessly exalted into heaven. Chloe Sevigny, Debbie Harry, Fred Armisen, and Tim & Eric also contribute their scathing wit to the book, and the end result is a New York fashion bible no bathroom should be without. "

Thanks to The Hachette Book Group, I have 3 copies of Street Boners to giveaway. Entrants beware - "This isn't wholesome comedy. Not at all. There will be photos (that's the whole point) and it ain't gonna be pretty (well, most of the time. Sometimes it is, to be honest). And the author uses straight up language, with four-letter words, even."

Open to US and Canada, no po boxes please. Simply comment to be entered. Ends Sat. June 19th at 6 pm EST.

I've been trying to get people to get this book for me to no avail... ugh.
Anyhow. I would write a poem about how much I love hipsters and their fixies and cut off jeans and excessive tattoos and unkempt hair and alcoholism, but my muse has gone off somewhere on a bender. At any rate, yes, I would also like this book. Nay - I'd love it. To death.

So, I mean, whateves. It would make my day, but otherwise it's okay too 'cuz I'll just go drink some PBRs and listen to Miike Snow.
