On Excitement

On Excitement

If you’ve arrived at this page, you are probably feeling excited. On Lives has not been updated in a few weeks. You had been taking a regular dosage almost everyday for two months, then suddenly, the pill bottle ran out. So what is that fluttering in the chest? Did you think just like that, we were done, that we had given up? Of course not! You knew all along something was coming, that we had been preparing something big. This is your official notification:

On Lives Subway Supplement” has arrived!


The “Subway Supplement” was originally intended for subway readers. But don’t let the name mislead you. It is a collection of our ten favorite essays and illustrations from over the past few months, many expanded and all reedited. In addition to Dan’s new front and back cover artwork, there is also a never-before-seen centerfold pull out poster for that empty spot on the wall above your bed. We’ve been meaning to reach out to more people, more New Yorkers and more of anyone else wanting a trenchant read, and given the size and digestibility of the new booklet, you now have the power to take On Lives anywhere. Pick one up in our bookstore or at one of these fine New York City and Brooklyn area bookstores:

Blue Stockings
Desert Island
McNally Jackson Books
Silent Barn (Zine Library)
St. Mark’s Bookshop

And/or in Chicago, IL at:
Quimby’s Bookstore
