Lileks.com is a museum with a new exhibit every day. Well, every workday. At the Bleat there's an essay on the times past and present, an addition to the ongoing series of sites on the art of old movies, 20th century advertising, the music and ads of old radio, and a weekly examination of small-town America. And that's just the Bleat. Each week updates the many sites that populate lileks.com, from the internet's largest collection of matchbook art, old motel postcards, 1930s advertisements, mail-order catalogs from the 60s.

And more. By supporting the site, you'll be telling me you enjoy the work - the scans, the annotations, the research, the design, and all the effort that goes into supplying your morning with something new to read, something new to learn, and something old to enjoy.

Think of it as a magazine,. You're buying a subscription.

I don't have to do this much, to be honest. It's fun, and I enjoy keeping my corner of the internet well-stocked, but it's entirely optional. The Bleat will never go away, but whether it continues in its present form is open to reconsideration.
