so i finally made it to the Giant Robot store. my pilgrammage is complete.
<p>i had to walk around in West LA, not knowing if there was a difference between Avenues and Boulevards. My sister told me that the address on their page said Ave. but the one i could find on the scant bus map was Boulevard. I guess people use them interchangeably in LA. You’d be lost in Northern Virginia, but i think they do that on purpose so they can christianize you or use you for target practice</p>
<p>anyway, i finally bought Sleepwalk (Optic Nerve 1-4 collection) after pouring over many a review. Eric (one of the makers of Giant Robot!) noticed me browsing and asked me if i was a fan. i had to admit that i hadn’t read any yet. just the reviews. the guys at GR are were pretty nice and gave me a poster for the new Optic Nerve collection coming out in the summer to fuel my future addiction. i had to leave after insisting on pictures and announcing myself as the paparazzi of GR. good thing i can hide out in DC.</p>
<p>but i read most of Sleepwalk on various forms of transportation from LA to Claremont, and i love it. i’m already a fan. sometimes it strikes a little too close to home though. close to home is good. a little too close to home is creepy.</p>
