YOUR NEUTRAL APOSTROPHES SICKEN ME

TK is a publishing term that means “to come.” You drop it in when you’re in mid-ramble and have to look something up later. You always capitalize it (otherwise it gets mixed in with uncommon strings like Kottke) and you never publish anything that contains TK in its usual sense. (As with other publishing terms, like hed, dek, and lede, the misspelling makes it possible to search for those terms or even have them located automatically. They won’t spontaneously appear in copy unless said copy discusses such usage, as I am doing here.)

Überdyke Alison Bechdel wrote a cartoon feature for Entertainment Weekly, “Life Drawing,” in the June 27–July 4 issue. (It’s billed as an exclusive, but it seems to be from an upcoming book.)

What’s printed in the gutter?

PHOTOGRAPH BY PHOTOGRAPHER NAME (several times) and GUTTER CREDITS TKHERE (several times).

Elaborate joke or spectacular production failure? (Inquiries to the magazine and Time Inc. went unanswered.)

I really like my pictures; my homosexualist-lock-screens project is what I am most proud of in living memory; this personal Weblog is an absolute cultural treasure.

And, last but not least, I don’t like you, either.
