Indiepenance Day

July 4th is Indiepenance Day.

No, don't jump on me for a spelling error. You see Matahari Books and Stormkitchen will be launching New Malaysian Essays 2 and Elarti:ga respectively on that day. And Amir notes :
Those of you who will read Yusuf Martin's essay will appreciate the irony of the date.
They are having a barbecue house party to celebrate at 22 Lorong Rahim Kajai 13, Taman Tun Dr. Ismail. (This is the side of TTDI that is closer to the primary school than to the Pizza Hut). It starts at 8pm and ends at 11pm.

More about book and party here on Amir's blog.

Hopefully it's still durian season. Amri and I just shared 4 this evening while discussing the launch.

Yusuf Martin said...

Yes it's the date when, in 1984 I opened my comic book shop in England, called ACE comics which was short for American Comic Enterprise.

So now when you read my few words in Amir's illustrious book, you may do so with a very wry grin.

I believe the idea is for the penance to die, as - IN - DIE - PENANCE...........DAY
