Sleepfuck + Scrotal Cash hard

Have you ever written or invoked a language in your sleep?




We are thinking about printing up a limited run of hard copies of the Scrotal Cash remix of Scorch Atlas. They would be rather expensive since they'd be in very short run, probably like $20-$22 apiece, at like 180 pages, but would look really nice and I think the work is powerful enough that it warrants book object? If you would be willing to buy a copy at this price, please comment? I will throw in some extra junk like a soundtrack and some other goodies to help increase value. I would really like as many people as possible to read the incredible work of remixed here (still available for free.

Contributors would obviously need to give their seal of approval on this, which is pending, and we couldn't afford to buy everyone one out of pocket, but if there is sufficient interest and everyone is cool with it, it will go down, and be a cool limited edition object of sorts. Holla?

In college the kid who slept in the bunk above me used to have crazy dreams/nightmares where he'd sit up in bed and start screaming in what I imagine was his native tongue (he was from Vietnam, came over to the states in the early 70s, picture helicopters crashing into the sea). Anyhow, I always thought there was something both primal and beautiful in these late night awakenings.

When I was a kid I used to speak to my cat in a made up language. I still find myself lapsing into that made up tongue when I now speak to my kids.

I figured you, Blake, would appreciate this sort of shit.
