    A Playlist, for Plants

    For your kind and far-sighted support of the Brick House, we are pleased to offer, from the sages of Preachy: a Playlist designed especially for Plants. You'll also receive an occasional newsletter from the Brick House, letting you know what we (and perhaps our plants) have been up to.

    In 1976, Mort Garson released Mother Earth's Plantasia, a glorious album of synthesizer music for your plants. Since then, a lot of music has happened. We think it's time to take care of your plants—who take good care of you by providing food, medicine, shelter, and a little thing called OXYGEN—by introducing them to some new jams.

    It'll make them happy, and it'll make you happy! ~~~

    Thank you for building a new wolf-proof home for independent publishers, and helping to strengthen and preserve press freedom!

    No Man is an Island Playlist!

    For your generous and visionary support of the Brick House, we are pleased to offer, from No Man is an Island:

    Songs About Struggling to Get By

    It’s a hard-knock life, these days. You struggle to do something and then a member of the 1% takes it all away from you at the drop of a hat. At The Brick House what we’re trying to do is create something that won’t be as vulnerable to the whims of the rich and powerful. So we offer you a playlist about struggling to make ends meet, and about trying to make dreams come true in this capitalist world of ours. The songs on this playlist are primarily drawn from an East Asian context, including bands and artists from Taiwan, China, and Japan.

    Thank you for building a new wolf-proof home for independent publishers, and helping to strengthen and preserve press freedom!

    The ANNOTATED "American Dirt"

    Myriam Gurba electrified the literary world last winter with the blazing essay, "Pendeja, You Ain’t Steinbeck: My Bronca with Fake-Ass Social Justice Literature," in which she confronted the ineradicable racism at the heart of the U.S. publishing industry, and also the extreme badness of the blockbuster novel, "American Dirt."

    In gratitude for your magnificently generous support of the Brick House, you can own a unique piece of literary history: Myriam Gurba's own annotated copy of "American Dirt."

    You'll also receive a year's subscription to the Brick House, plus stickers, a Brick House calendar, and the love and respect of many grateful journalists, editors, and artists.
