The Sims in Real Life by Ben Robinson

12.00

Robinson’s The Sims in Real Life makes use of YouTube’s auto-captioning function to put words to clips of otherwise nonsensical gibberish. The poem is made from captions generated for a video wherein a prankster acts like a character from The Sims video game series, jabbering unintelligibly at strangers. The Blasted Tree has produced an edition of multimedia chapbooks featuring a booklet of this poem plus a bonus CD loaded up with digital content, including an introduction by the author, production images, and more. Limited edition of 40 chapbooks, each tucked with its disk in a slim jewel case.

In the present age of digital media, the art of publishing and book-binding is quickly being forgotten. The Blasted Tree appreciates the difference between reading a story online and holding a copy in your hands, and we feel the experience of owning a high-quality physical copy should not be lost. Though we make most of our media available online free of charge, physical distribution is how we raise funds to promote our authors and this site. The Blasted Tree is involved at every level of publication, from editing to typesetting, production, and distribution. What better way to support Canadian authors and artists than by purchasing a printed copy of their work?
