As our Idiots march continues, we make our way by deceiving people. Our most recent victims are the editors of BOMB magazine, whose job it is to scour the world for artists, actors, directors, writers, and other purveyors of beauty and truth, interview them, and record their wise words on the beautiful, well-designed pages of their lovely, slightly oversized quarterly magazine. Every inch of the magazine exudes hipness, as shown in the cover of the current issue.
In spite of all they stand for and believe in, the good people of BOMB asked us to provide content for BOMB’s back-page feature, The Wick.

Our feature will find its way to the BOMB website at some point, and when it does, we’ll let you know, but for now, to preview other parts of the issue or buy a copy, head here. Or head to your local newsstand, but only if it’s a really hip newsstand.
